Track Name: Defend Your Identity
LYRICS
______
Open your eyes and you will see dead face
Some scene is visible among a day
A man spreads his arms and calls with effort
No! He doesn't! He screams!

My head!
Throws words away without shame, penetrating voice
A change! A wrack!
Two faces again with gaping mouth
Don't give up!

Grow up, turn on the light

The innocent pledge of love is unmoved
Just face of
Bites his lips and monitors
Expects the worst
Gathers strength all the time
To blow up one day
Foolish hope
He won't be like you
He won't be...

My brain!
They've poisoned me, infamous cord is always there
I wanna wake up and fly!
This memory is dying now
Never give up!

Grow up. Turn off the light

They cut my magical wings
Nothing, nothing as it seems

Grow up. Turn off the light
______
Track Name: Stupid Joke
LYRICS
______
As far as flames in the eyes still increase
And faith is still present,
Every single day I see
reminds me of her
A wonderful view

A mature man,
But I'm still green
Still just laughing
Stupid joke

Whisper low,
What imagine
I have some new hope

Agonizes me one question
Always dances around my head
Can we control our destination?
Or desert hope till the end

I have many things to say,
But I wait for my turn cause,
Love is really hard to explain

I believe you will be mine
______
Track Name: Sitting In The Red Train
LYRICS
______
Life is so putrid for me every day
Dangerous sky by the ancient mead
We're all too grateful

I can't breath, this poison infects my blood
I'm drowning, but nobody can help me now
It's too late, to stasy alive with open mind
I'm dying here. Dying like a butterfly
I can't fight, there's nothing more to get back
I'm falling, and nobody can touch me now
It's too late, to be again a stainless child
I'm dying here. Dying like a butterfly

They are no innocent
After all, many years
Flier lost mighty spell
There's no time

The belief in a miracle controls my mind
It didn't really happen
You can do it without your faith
Spread your wings! Fly!

I don't want to cheat
I don't want to fight
I don't want to lie
Never again

I don't want to cry
I don't want to be afraid
I don't want to die

Did I saw in this pane cheerful eyes and strong faith
in justice and goodness in the world?
Of course
______
Track Name: Yesterday's Dream
LYRICS
______
Fairy tales, beautiful world,
even a little butterfly,
happiness, happiness
Secret garden in flowery robe
Secret garden. Smell of love, smell of love

No, no one tries to dream about soaring adventure anymore
No, no one tries to understand
We are mistaken, but we grow
Never asked to be old

Distorted face in a flaming light
Echo of silence
It's not my fault. Not my fault
what is wrong with a curious sight?!
Something wrong
The children day has gone, day has gone!

No, no one tries to dream about soaring adventure anymore
No, no one tries to understand
We are mistaken, but we grow

Maybe I'm a weak, a weak person
Standing here, dreaming here

Maybe everything is over
Thousands of smiles
Maybe everything is over
Colors of rainbow
Maybe everything is over
Inner Paradise. Maybe everything

No, no one tries to dream about soaring adventure anymore
No, no one tries to understand
We are mistaken, but we grow
Never asked to be old

Track Name: It's Time To Grow Up
LYRICS
______
So grow up and cross to the other side
What's a matter?! Don't you change your life?
Oh, it is so real! Dance my monkey, you cannot be free
Eat your lies, betray the innocent dreams
There is no place for a sadness and tears
Don't you realize?!
Common! Common! It's a suicide

Impassive shout, they are drowned. Morbid speed.
Putrid game

If I could in a one breath drink huge oceans of lies
I would be what I could be, I would see what I've never seen
Summertime in a snowy day, all my pride with required shame
All is different now

No more barefoot mornings. No more quiet evenings
There's an upset old man. No more barefoot mornings.

The whisper in my head's so delicate it's sounds over and over
Let me run into the rain touch the stars
with open arms and with a thousand smiles
"You can spend your time alone till the end" - it's sounds over and over

Pull yourself together and start to live
I take care and care of my inside child
But I don't know if that'smy imagination
Hey you! Do you hear me?
How much do I know? It seems like nobody care
Hey you! Do you

Commotion everywhere, emotions in my head
Impassive shout, they are drowned. Morbid speed.
Putrid game

Wait!
I just need someone to be there, waiting for me
I don't want to be anymore, crying kid

Track Name: sNoone
LYRICS
______
The time we've been longing for will finally come
The colour range, the trails of scents
The blazing sun, the fuller moon

The time we've been longing for will finally come
The ocean of energy, the warm smiles
Joyful mornings and evenings so hot

The time we've been longing for will finally come
The intense gazes, the delicate sounds
The cloudless sky and fertile earth

The time we've been longing for will finally come
Our vivid dreams, gold mines of ideas
A sudden breeze and butterflies all around

The time will finally come
______
Track Name: Asleep
LYRICS
______
Before I hurt myself again
I'll prepare, look in the sky, catch the wind and burn the sun
I'll survive
I am sick, I am tired of this world where I have to live,
this stupid situation
I don't want them
Lie is everywhere

Freedom!
Troubles, money, taxes
I don't want them
They have promised a fabulous life

What's going on with me? Mother. Please give me a hug!
All this bad news from the media
Lullaby in the evenings
I miss her so much
