Track Name: Insight
How can I see the light?
please tell me how to escape
'cause every way that I take
seems the same to me

here is where I
finally stand

who am I?
is what I' ll say

life is made up of
holes and slants
memories and places you've been

close your eyes and then you will see
men's lives melt and blend with all the rest

beauty seems to cover everything
there's much more that you can comprehend

but a sound takes him away
his bus has arrived
the magic's gone
like puddles in the sun
Track Name: Eyes
Through the doors of thoughts I've seen
empty spaces without any chance
well, I never thought you could be there
and I've tried to see what has never been

I don't see your eyes
reflected in mine
they never have
I want to dream a while

I can be a prince, a king, a friend
but you need a princess, a queen or something else
I never thought you could be behind that door, outside my world
now look at this body, it's only flesh

I don't see your eyes
reflected in mine
they never have... perhaps
I want to dream a while

I can't see your tears
maybe you're hiding them
I would like to scream again
I know you wouldn't hear me

here I fall
Track Name: Cell 342
Above the ceiling
dreams like butterflies in the sky
are colors for my white sheet
and somewhere tears fall

"where is my fault?"
he asks me to reply
increasing disease
that silently glows

you put the right things
beside the wrong ones
remove all your pride
and what you were before

take off your white coat and let me see
take off your white coat and then you'll see
no, I' m not a fool
nobody is a fool

let me be
let me out
it's what i need

Suddenly, I got it
and i know, i bought and paid for
my disgrace with my life
yes, you could insult me
but I'm sure you think that's someone else with me, don't you?

who's there? there's no one else

everyone craves the sight
while time is mocking us

I've just asked you to leave me alone

who's there? there's no one else

this is one of those days in which i can
move those clouds that obscure my steps
like smoke on my FACE

there's someone who says repeatedly
"these are his last days"
but i'm not afraid to die
no! no, not any more

wherever I'll go
they won't be here any more
their drugs are killing me
and all I want is what I was before
until we cried

I've said "pray for me"
I've said "pray for me"
please.....
I won't ask you for more
you couldn't give...more of this...

who's there?....there's no one else...

you don't seem afraid
for who you are looking for
he might not exist

the meaning is clear
all doubts disappear

I come he goes
I come he goes
I come he goes
I come he goes
I'm coming back
Track Name: Tied Together
I don't know how it was
anyway here we are
as if an ice age had frozen everything
I do not compromise

and the toy is going to break
while I wait for a new Godot
this perpetual frame is eating us up
and nothing seems to change

but I'll try
and I'll try
I'll try
I'll try
again,so, here we go

and then came the silence
and I retraced on my own steps
forgetting words that paralyzed me
and now it seems to change

but I'll try
and I'll try
I'll try
I'll try

everything changes
Track Name: Perpetual Dream
Wake up! Maybe there is something true
in what you have dreamt in the last few days

Hey you! Everything is gonna change too soon
and is getting out of your reach

Mistakes come back
I’d like to be alone for a while
fears instill liquid emotions called tears
you should try to throw out everything you have
make your way, time is getting shorter

Wake up! something is about to lose control
and your head is thinking differently

Reject all that is required of you, shaped on you
Who cares? Go ahead

Mistakes come back like a thousand ghosts, avoid them!
Fears instill liquid emotions called tears
you should try to throw out everything you have
make your way, time is getting shorter

I don’t wanna have

Set yourself free again
or you’ll lose your game.
Track Name: Get Out And Run
Open the gate and run.
Track Name: The Endless Road
I walk through me and I
so I see human plants, cross the lines

the land is gaunt
for years and years I roamed
but something feeds it
falling from my cheeks

veiled lies, again, is what I found
is what I breath beneath the door

so they said, he' ll always be behind
it' s what I thought until i got up to leave

all those days gone
behind the scenes
inside their lines
i stare at their gaze
their eyes are dying

veiled lies, again, is what I found
a faded life, I leave
their words had no meaning
a year ago, now even more

fragmented love

now I see the other side
stones and roses
there are those who hide
there are those who protect

but there's no reason lost
but there's no reason lost

strangers desires tell me to go farther and farther away
no matter where
no matter when
it is the same for me and I have to do it, I must do it, I think...
far away from their duplicity
far away from the same old comedy
you know, everybody is learning the script by heart
but I can not, I can not even read it
the hate is burning my bowels
like this noise is numbing my ears
it doesn't leave me alone
they don't leave me alone

veiled lies, again, is what I found
a faded life, I leave
their words had no meaning
a year ago, now even more
Track Name: Less Is More

more hugs
more vibes
more laughs
more trips
more sounds
more fun

less gas
less noise
less drag
less slaps
less drugs
less slaves
less charges
less guns

more time
more quiet
more dreams
more hope
more joy
more peace
more truth
more life

less fakes
less lies
less blame
less pride
less rage
less pain
less war
less fears

more love
Track Name: Maya
I feel something that the others don' t even see
every day I can touch the smiles and wails
of a hard childhood
in front of my eyes
i look back on my whole life
my whole normal, stupid life
and I learn that there is someone who
doesn't ask for more, doesn't ask for more

and I would like to take their hands
and to dry their tears
but it's not so easy
we can't change their past
and their disillusions
while sometimes
we must try to listen, try to listen
and don't stop in front of what appears
why don't you look at their faces
that are screaming all their rage

their eyes hide weakness (choir)

you only wanted to be a child
and fill all your days with smiles
mothers, fathers and their troubles
dumped on their daughters and sons

tens, hundreds of eyes
that couldn't understand why
you only wanted to be a child
you only wanted to be

their eyes hide weakness (choir)

Maya wants to be a child
and fills her days with hugs and smiles
leaves her mother and her father
looking for a new, virgin dawn

tens and hundreds of eyes
that can not understand why
she only wants to be a child
she only wants to be
Track Name: Memento
confused, mesmerized
remember who you were
forget who you are

what about your last few years?

as if I had slept for a lifetime
I wake up with no knowledge
all that I was until yesterday
it's only fog here today

If I could just see you
I'd not hesitate

How can i heal me
if i can not feel the time?

you tell me, you're in the right
you know, you've lied to yourself

like the night that relentlessly falls on us
time, "switch off the lights and recall the rain"!

confused, mesmerized
remember who you were
forget who you are
and I think you should take a note!

you tell me, you're in the right
you know, you've just lied
emptiness, the pressure rises
and you can't stand
emptiness, the pressure rises
and you can't stand

I feel a long time ago
something I loved so much
that I can't forget
no, I can' t
no, I can' t

fields of blue
I remember the smell
how can I forget?
I can't remember to forget

confused, mesmerized
I'm refusing memories

let them switch off the radio
let them switch off your visions
hold back your whys
to remove all your doubts
sprinkle photos
let the shadows gather their colors again
look for causes
beg for consequences
put the things right!

you tell me, you're in the right
you know, you've just lied
emptiness, the pressure rises
and you can't stand
emptiness, the pressure rises
and you can't stand
