Track Name: Another Glimpse of Sun
I wonder what you’re thinking
as minutes tick away
where else you’d rather be
spending your days

another glimpse of sun
and then the morning come

Don’t worry about your feelings
they care about your joy
you know how does it feel
being their toy

unite we can stop them
‘cause they’re stealing our time
unite we can stop them
‘cause they’re stealing our lives

the plan already spoken
is waiting to be applied
the system then will fall
from the inside

Unite we can stop them
‘cause they’re stealing our time
Unite we can stop them
‘cause they’re stealing our lives

another glimpse of sun
and the new dusk will come
and soon will come the day
you’re going to hear them say
“another glimpse of sun
and then repeat its way...”
Track Name: Red Star
Game over,
no time for goodbyes,
looks like the end of this journey.

Computer,
who knows where I am
lost in this kind of an hyperspace

Red star,
wherever you are,
give us a new meaning

Red star,
wherever you are,
lead us to forgiving.

Suspended
in cryogenic sleep,
rocked by the waves of a pulsar.

The lifetime
that I left behind,
waiting to come to the age of light.

Red star,
wherever you are,
give us a new meaning

Red star,
wherever you are,
lead us to forgiving.
Track Name: Nicotine
Nicotine, Nicotine,
I won’t kiss you goodbye,
bitter taste that makes me high.

Don’t be so bad
to me, cause today I’m sad
kiss my lips one more time,
after all we’re partners in crime

Drown in this glass of champagne
bubbles makes me high
It’s everything to lose
and nothing to gain

Nicotine, Nicotine,
you don’t cheat and don’t lie
you’re my perfect aliby.

Don’t sigh for me,
my fire ignites and set you free
there’s no love without desire,
like the smoke from a distant fire

Drown in this glass of champagne
bubbles makes me high
It’s everything to lose
and nothing to gain

Nicotine, Nicotine,
never kiss you goodbye,
bitter taste that makes me high.

Nicotine, Nicotine,
my best friend and ally
with you till the day I die.

Nicotine...
Track Name: We Will Fade Out
When the day's done
we will fade out
like empty souls
no one cares about

we're the fallen thoughts
of an ancient dream
that repeats itself
whispering

"we will fade
we will fade out"

when you fall asleep
and the day's gone by
you will hear us
whispering our goodbye

will swim with your heart
and will rock your dreams
when the day's done
we will fade out

we will fade
we will fade out
Track Name: Standing by My Side
Driving by,
the same old town
your oldsmobile,
that never let you down.

You look so bored
think your life is waste,
but you should know

that standing by my side
standing by my side,
standing by my side,
standing by my side,
you won’t have to hide.

Walking by
an empty street,
looking at
your feet

don’t blame yourself -
you’re not so bad,
so don’t be shy,

‘cause standing by my side
standing by my side,
standing by my side,
(you’ll) never have to hide.
Track Name: Peace and Melody
I will be free,
and you'll have to wait
only for me.

Lord, please let it be,
a better day
for peace and melody

If you leave my mind
If you leave my mind

You have to be
a better human race
in harmony.

Lord, please let it be,
a better day
for peace and melody.

If you leave my mind
If you leave my mind
Track Name: The Days of Roses
I feel the symptoms of spring
feeling the scent of a flower
that spin around,
my senses on fire

Can you hear an ocean of sound
spending its strength upon the shore,
shall sleep no more
but light my desire.

Give me back my days of roses
but don't forget that book that closes,
the wherefores and whys that led us here and now.

Oh delicious circle, it took me in
down the garden path and back out again,
hope that drove me down the wall,
screaming at my dreaming, 'don't let them fall'.

Give me back my days of roses
but don't forget that book that closes,
the wherefores and whys that led us here and now.
Track Name: Catch 22
I often thought I’d catch a lift
to a better place and time,
where money’s not a problem,
love stories work out fine.

Now I wander through our past
(future’s been and gone),
I wander

I can touch the sky,
with you, I’ll never die.

Take my Dear John letter,
better read than dead,
true that I was blinded,
still too easily led.

Love you and then leave you…
isn’t that a crime ?
I still wander.

I can touch the sky,
now, look how free I fly.

I can touch the sky,
with you, I’ll never die,

no love could bleed me dry,
now, look how free I fly.
Track Name: Underneath the Mango Tree
nderneath the mango tree
me honey and me
can watch for the moon.

Underneath the mango tree
me honey and me
make boolooloop soon.

Underneath the moonlit sky
me honey and I
can sit hand in hand.

Underneath the moonlit sky
me honey and I
can make fairyland.

Mango banana and tangerine,
sugar and ackee and cocoa bean,
when we get marry we make them grow,
and nine little chilins' in a row.

Underneath the mango tree
me honey and me
can watch for the moon.

Underneath the mango tree
me honey and me
we plan marry soon.

Mango banana and tangerine,
sugar and ackee and cocoa bean,
when we get marry we make them grow,
and nine little chilins' in a row.

Underneath the mango tree (4x)
Track Name: Some Thoughts are Hard to Die
Sunday morning,
saw you hanging by a thread,
spinned with a magic ply.

Eerie weather,
who’s not able to complete,
led us to pass you by.

Missing streams
clashes through the ocean,
takes time to unify.

In your daydreams,
butterflies in light blue sky,
Caught in a lullaby,

Seems like a dream,
more a nightmare than a dream,
whispering another sigh.

We got over 
this misunderstanding; 
some thoughts are hard to die.
Track Name: Ophelia's Song
When I fall in love I get dizzied.
I fall out there's just dirt to dish,
a memory to drown me in.

Still, can't regret my big scene,
though I acted the fool
my double became a real has-been.

Now that we say our goodbyes,
no need for rushing
crocodiles, crocodiles.

When I fall in love I get dizzied.
I fall out there's just dirt to dish,
a memory to drown me in.

Tried my best to act cool,
through the roughest weather
had no queues.

Still, can't regret my big scene,
though I acted the fool
my double became a real has-been.

Be there! (then I would say) funny,
how you become what you've seen too much of,
so I might have been.

Now that we say our goodbyes,
no need for rushing
crocodiles, crocodiles.
