Explosions inside my head, I don't know, what it was. People cry out all their fears and the floor seems to crumble I try to look inside what have I got? Feelings or perceptions? I can only see your face with no name No name no fault, no name no fault Lie down, stand still, shut up, take care they could hear you! Don't speak, don't breathe, don' t look, just pray, while they die 'cause of 'em. What's the reason? Why they doing it? What's religion? What God wants death instead of life? Among the many questions The answer is always the same I can not devote my life to hate Fundamentalism is the big debate How can I save myself? Only with love. Lie down, stand still, shut up, take care they could hear you! Don't speak, don't breathe, don't look, just pray, while they die 'cause of 'em. What's the reason? Why they doing it? What's religion? What God wants death instead of life? This is all that I could say. “One day fear knocked on the door Courage opened it and found no one outside” Lie down, stand still, shut up, take care they could hear you! Don't speak, don't breathe, don't look, just pray, while they die 'cause of 'em. What's the reason? Why they doing it? What's religion? What God wants death instead of life?

when I look at me inside I lose feelings here and there I've no more life to live Can I still love? while I touch your skin, softly I'll be your cure with the music of my voice I fought with saints and nothing's changed no line can divide us but alone I can't win how long can I scream ? these words are what remains can you stop all those machines? finally my mind sleeps away from this world I've never asked you to be saved I can live again like the moon at sunrise one day I'll find you in my nights

He sits crouched under the stairs and waits to appear in the same vignette for years he has been playing a part he speaks through millions of clouds he lives in a world of inked paper no longer knows who he is chasing who has not yet become clearly the writer has no more ideas, while he thinks on how to move on his story, he's in a place where false and real collide if you chose life, a beautiful place where you dive, you could think, act and respect your own mind you would't be afraid of all that whiteness around you could draw it and fill it with all the colors you mix He sits crouched under the stairs and waits to appear in the same vignette last night I made a dream I could touch I could see (I could see) I could taste I could hear Paper man can you feel? “Wait a second, lets start from the beginning you have a good job, a fast car, designer's clothes, easy amusements you can have what you deserve, you shouldn't leave us” I chose life, a beautiful place where I dive, I can think, act and respect my own mind I fell good with all that whiteness around I can draw me and fill me with all the colors I found and that's what I've found

The last chance is falling down again and you might feel constantly insane we are unconscious evaporations fixed on a mirror can you live outside that screen? I know you are thirsty of those interactions likes, shares, comments and invitations unfaithful expectations everything that is fake is now processed translated into truth by a dumb FB post how could this happen? this world is losing its tales the thing got out of hand we'll fall into an hole there's nothing to lose and there nothing to live for we'll leave without leaving a trace pictures without any fancy filters now show what they are not fat, old men starving of negativeness spittin' judgements and leading to explode can you imagine how this was before? everything was fascinating now it seems lost Lost this world is losing its tales the thing got out of hand we'll fall into a hole there's nothing to lose and there nothing to live for we'll leave without leaving a trace

Crosswise streets that fail to meet each other traffic jam all this bustle gets me down black coffee as cold as people passing by she walks out from a cloud of steam she's beautiful bring me into your bubble touch me softly and take me away from this routine everything seems to move so slowly you're the one one and only that stands out bring me into your bubble touch me softly and take me away from this routine
