Track Name: Lip and tremble
Lip and tremble

You’re looking for someone to hold you by the hand I’m looking for the road that takes us far west Can’t you see? I can’t breath, can’t help myself Now it’s your turn to break the rules Break the thin line between me and you And it’s your turn to fully understand My procedures, my concerns

“I want you to be my last thought before the dream I want you to be my first sight after the dream”

You’re breaking, harshly aching, but sometimes you smile I’m at the door of hope waiting for your lips to unfold Can’t you see? I can’t breath, can’t help myself Now squeeze the flesh, release the red Balance on the edge between good and bad Coz’ it’s your turn to fully understand My procedures, my concerns

Here she comes Heavenly devil Dressed in scarlet Outrageous liquor Now, rape the paint! Forget the shame! Help me keep my words insane She lipped and trembled Lipped and trembled She lipped and trembled And I spoke these words:

“I want you to be my last thought before the dream, I want you to be my first sight after the dream”
Track Name: Once purple
Once purple

Once purple they turned blue
Once purple they turned blue
So mama cried that day

Where did you get that from?
Unwanted warlike marks
Forever alike, no matter the lies
No matter the two overbalanced minds
Once purple they turned blue
No grudge allowed and plain blue

And tonight I feel like I need a fireplace
“Look up sister past is gone
Gorgeous sister we got precious stones
Guarded sister hold me tight
Entertaining sister take me with you
Where my blue will join the sea
Once purple... the northern sea”

Once lost now climbing up
Want paint to undo the dust
Now forget the past
My curves like golden barley
Surrounding former purple
Whatever the frowns, I love clouds above towns
I’m all inscrutable for the cunning tongues
Once purple they turned blue
Your past it can be fooled now
Track Name: Seven

Nothing but blood over my skin
Nothing but buried dreams behind
If I could I would rewind the tape of time
Just one thing I know out of all I don’t know

Rainshine like it’s another place
Rainshine like I’m not the enemy

Seven as the times you’ve asked for love
Seven as the pyres of the ancient wars
Seven as the deep centres of my soul
Seven as that bunch of stars in the North

Nothing but shots over this land
There’s a gaping heart where people lie naked
I sense the enemy’s wound, it’s just as sore
We’re on two different sides, could you tell that?

See rain shine like it’s another place
See rain shine like I’m not the enemy

Seven as the miles to ride on...
Track Name: Genetically rock
Genetically rock

What are you like? My dear pilgrims What are you like? Minds go astray My dear rock men Minds go astray

Who said it’s dead? Wonder what it is that killed it...

Don’t enrage them Play the game Extremes all together Contradictions don’t matter The rockin’ brew make‘em stagger

When they sing songs They’re genetically rock When they drink on They’re genetically rock

Gloomy traffic lights Where are you going tonight? Entryway to the house of the underpriced Leather jackets under spotlights

Who said it’s dead? It might have taken some years off...

‘coz I see it... See it in my friend’s walk See It in my girl’s talk In D n B’s alcoholic shock Everywhere I roam And in the dark we drove

And I can see some Paiza action In D’s abandon at the gas station Whiskey pride tonight ‘Coz Paiza bro’s stopped by

Bottles get raped at the gas station Common sense’s on vacation The original womb is down at the bottom Drain it ‘till the womb! The Four Roses’ womb
Track Name: Halo

Knocked on the gate Golden face in smile I almost passed away I’m jailed outside the cage Is it just a joke of God’s? Or am I all indented by Pleasure flares and cherry flesh Magnetized by gentleness?

From behind the crown

Midnight will soon be forgotten In the misty glances Of a fire-loving queen Rusted heart Shake off the poison And taste... The Halo From behind the crown

She walks to the moon and back A demon angel lonely goes through constant sins Old and young, clown and queen The stardust, it’s thick between the eyes, Makes up lies, it gleams within a smile, Speak, Speak to me, just speak! You’re not from planet earth, now I see So tell me about your fairyland I bet you do know where it’s at

A demon angel sitting down Above the grey calm of this town She starts to judge as the sun goes down From behind a deceiving crown
Track Name: Daily news
Daily news

It’s daily news for me and you All we do is just walk away Child’s at work, tourist on the road And he promises a doll if she just chooses him When duty’s done the knave he runs The girl is still waiting for that dirty toy

Daily rules they hit just dull crews Whatever it means... Daily rules they hit just dull crews Whatever it is... Daily news on a desperate angel Daily news ‘bout a red-spotted angel

Here’s a daily news, it’s common use A one night abuse remains sadly hidden Under scratched out skin The flower is bartred And secrecy’s not threatened Though the girl maybe shattered It’s all an unbestowed right to live and let live

When they tell me the disease is too strong Equilibrated distribution of dolls Indian gem finds opposite chore Evil-free no good could be shown Red man struggles ‘cause of western gold Daily news... it’s sold...

If you gimme your flower... (Say what? Say what?) If you gimme your flower baby... (Say what? Say what?)

It’s daily news, shame on you All we do is just walk away Walk your way
Track Name: On the way to Ames
On the way to Ames

On the way to Ames babe You can ease your pain babe Erase your deepest stains babe On the way to Ames babe

On the way to Ames dear Everyone looks tense dear So I grabbed the pen dear See the dancing grains dear!

Just like the meet call And there’s no fatherly goal Pack your stuff and go Let’s keep the heart-beat on

On the way to Ames babe You can find your aim babe On the way to fail You might be leaving a trail babe

Crazy girl’s insane! She must be coming someway I hold four daisies in vain At least I’ve been in Ames

Crazy girl’s insane! She must be coming someway I hold “Four Roses” in vain At least I’ve been in Ames
Track Name: Escape blues
Escape blues

Let’s slide down the black cone Let’s dive in unchained melodies Pour our bones in the eternal bliss Save the portrait of such memories

Let’s swim to the unstrolled path Let’s give it a glance Once other escape doors petrified Break through the living fence

It’s an escape blues for my generation It’s a space blues without a salvation It’s another one born in silk and wine! It’s another one sitting on his lazy dull time!

Let’s run up and down blue waves Let’s wait for the tide to rise The unveiled prejudice no longer chains And the new gleam springs to our eyes
Track Name: Light brown
Light brown

All down curly on the wet spine While holding her head gently Both sure there was a moon outside Who cared about death then? What about pain and wounded bones? Right after our jealous solo Tight in that warm pose

Come on musician Cast me your solo You’ve got the lead In our bedroom-studio Step on musician Break through the wall Gimme some hair And you’ll have me crawl

Material tenderness, smooth surface of sin It fills your loneliness Waving around like sand on the beach Material tenderness, simple source of sin It kills your innocence Thrilling the looks of a spring’s colored eve

Beginning and end of pride Lives stroll down the head Have fun down the slide Light brown waves did drive you mad Material tenderness Smooth surface of sin It feeds your loneliness Beam of soft light from the screen

Paiza, Paiza
Track Name: If
If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you But make allowance for their doubting too If you can wait and not be tired of waiting Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies Or being hated, don’t give way to hating And yet don’t look to good, nor talk too wise

If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken And stoop and build‘em up with worn out tools

If you can dream, and not make dreams your master If you can think, and not make thoughts your aim If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch and toss And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the will which says to them: “Hold on!”

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue Or walk with kings, nor lose the common touch If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you If all men count with you, but none too much

If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run Yours is the earth and everything that’s in it And, which is more, you’ll be a man my son!
Track Name: Z conversation
Z conversation

It’s my very first conversation It feels just like a huge “conspiration” Don’t make up the bed, don’t make up the bed We’ll stray into it again

Which magic wood do you come from? Nowadays few outstanding creatures Live this world, live this world Show me your very soul

What’s up with all this love? Sly bud of spring How come you kiss my hand? Like there was no tomorrow I’ll be fair enough with you, my dear What’s up with all this love?

It’s another Z conversation Beneath white sheets warm secrets of a worn out girl Of a worn out girl... All this wasn’t supposed to be for me I don’t deserve it, oh please let them talk, we’re unique, enough to be crazy for

“I want you to adore me, to portrait me Revealed only by the faintest and tiniest look of heaven Even He’s astonished by my feline look, my sense of humour He the power, He the grip, I’m as firm as a giant fist!”

(Want it to be my last conversation, Still the muse lies harmless and Draws out life, draws out life, Few cars are now passing by)
