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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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
