Track Name: Clocks
Why all these clocks ticking on and on
The sound they make is so horrible
It reminds me
About you

It's scratching ears
And
It's pushing me down
To the limit
To the finish
To the border
I can see your shape
I can see it now
I can see it clear

The only message your perfumes bring
The fragments of the big bang in the blood I feel
The rules you see
The rules
The rules you see

It's absolutely astonishing
And absolutely makes no sense at all
The world I've seen
The world
The world I've seen

I've got a feeling
Funny
I've got all the time
Turbines
Engines
Never stop
Brick by brick
This world is built

But we fall apart
Breath by breath
Step by step
How beautiful you are
Track Name: Down Below
Round in circles
We gonna round and round
And still around in circles
We fall down so low
Down below
And when the time is near
Whether the time is close
I'm gonna bring you here
To see our life is lost
Life is lost

Round in circles
We gonna round and round
And still around in circles
We fall down so low
Down below
And when the change is near
Whether the change is close
It's gonna get you here
So everything is lost
All is lost

Over the river we sat
Here we shall rest
Among the sad blue water
Under the trees of Eden
And then the time is near
The time is close
It's gonna get you here
The life is lost

Reach out and touch me
Track Name: Into The Sun
This boy will understand
Why his life was so low
This girl will understand
Why her life went so wrong

This man will comprehend
Why her love was so cold
This woman will figure out
Why this love was heavy so

This kid will get a point
Why the body he had got
It was the enemy
This babe will get a point
Why the white clothes became the black clothes

This woman will understand
Why the tears she wept away
Has dried so fast

Onward into the sun
Onward toward the sun
Gonna burn
We gonna burn
Track Name: Wrong
Head down
Under the water
You tell me
How should I breath

The panic suddenly hits
It's getting harder now

Maybe for me it's too soon
To see if our end is happy
It's unusually hard to hold on to

I stare at the blank page
No easy way to say this
You mean well
But it ain't no good
This hard on me

Why the best things always go wrong
Track Name: Down Is The Only Way Out
This is a room where I spend my time
This is a house
House of cards
Thank you for your forgiveness
Thank you for sense of loneliness

The walls are thin
And pale as moon
From behind the window
I can see it clear
Take me where the light is
Take me where darkness disappears

Up to the rooftop where ten steps lead
I can smell your presence
I know you are here
Show me the sparks of the guiding lights
Show me the sense of being blind

My heart is calm
But mind confused
Why everybody still sit in the blue
Thank you for loosing of all the ways
Thank you for sense of loneliness


The only way out is down
Down is the only way out
Track Name: Glass Of Jar
It looks like
It will never be changed
The road ahead is long
The lights flash from the sky
The halo around the head
This life is never changing
No damage
No harm
At all
We fly
Like butterfly in the glass of jar

This love will never end
This love never ends
Like the earth around the sun
Like waves
Onward and back
Still
Our life's not changing
And our story still remains
Again
We sit here and wait

It looks it has never been fair
No questions
No hesitations
The names are given from the sky
The stars are silent witnesses
This life will never change
No damage
No harm
At all
We fly
Like butterfly in the glass of jar

This love will never end
This love never ends
Like the hours and the minutes
Like the river
Never goes back

Still
Our life's not changing
And our history still remains
Again and again
It's never too late
Track Name: Low
It’s time of sorrow
Time of living
When I lost control
You gave me thoughts
You showed me exit
When all my hopes were gone

I will give you best medicine I have
If you take my hand
And I will calm down the noises
From inside of your head

Wherever there is a light
I'm always hidden in the shadows
I’m the voice from the distance
The breath of your soul

Now every dream on every night
Brings whisper in my mind
It rings like sound of the radio
Playing out of range

So low

For no reason
Love hurt you enough
Love brings the cross
Day by day
Every night

Love
Isn’t so much beautiful
Even though it’s like the rainbow

Love hurts you
Love breaks you down
When others feel so high
You feel so low
Track Name: Fever
You sent me a message
From the highest mountain top
Nothing you can do
And all you do is nothing

Watch as the rain falls down on
The Empires and the slums
See as the fate laughs
From the rich ones and the poor

We need some lullaby
Before we fall asleep
The touch of wisdom
or
The sound of falling leaves

Welcome at the theatre of life
Feel free to erase yourself
The meaning of your being
Determined by the rhythm of your footsteps

I’m in fever
Your eyes of blue
I’m in fever
I can't recognise you
I’m in fever
I can see their hands on you
Round they go
Track Name: Coin Of Gold
This is life which you get
This is time which you stretch away
These are the days, never gone
Signs of love
Star of hope
Above
This is time of the Word
Swim through port
On and on
Ahead
Miles away from the east
Onward north
Backward south
Are we still
Or
Are we not

I'm gonna write your name upon the walls
And engrave your face on a coin of gold

This is life which you get
This is the hand sweeping away
The dirt
These are the days, never gone
Signs of love
Star of hope
Above
Track Name: Rainbows
All the rainbows are gone
The footprints are gone
All the tears
Swept away
The rainbows are gone

All of the signs we have missed
In the low light we have missed
It’s wasted
It’s gone
The rainbows are gone but the shattered colours

Clouds moved on
The rainbows are gone
And the sky and the wind
The rainbows are gone
Only shattered colours

Before the angels cover up the sea
Before the angels cover up the streets
Before the engine is powerless
And
No lessons left to learn
Climb the highest mountain
Run toward the ocean shore
Fire in the wood house

Before we go under
Before we fall down
Before the endless time calms down the restless soul

Before the magic is over
Before it’s not too late to call
