Track Name: in rainbows
expecting for so much time, sweat to make up your mind
they’re forming two shades under one former
concrete stable blood
they fight confronting the toughest way to

neither of them is white paper waiting for you to write the prologue
neither of them has been expectin’ superman eyes to see inside ‘em

both will fight and both will cry when you try to choose a flag to pacify
both will speak up both will break up if you don’t make a move to pacify

wise men suggest we should discover communication why won’t you hear ?
I like you like we like they both like communication but you fail to

understand what both of them feel since trouble goes up in to your mind
unidentified trouble shows up in every time things do conclude

ahh timeless tale
ironic fate
no doubt that you can control

both will fight and both will cry when you try to choose a flag to pacify
both will speak up both will break up if you don’t make a move to pacify

ahh timeless tale
ironic fate
no doubt that you can control
Track Name: cover me
Wishing you away and your bitter memories
Running round in circles oh how bad it must be
round and round

Keep us all in chains it won’t change our will
Blood on blood and tears no vampire can drink
Crucify this paper silhouette
distance makes things better once you’re dead

As it crawls around me I see it dividing
Evoking my nightmares it’s living inside me
As it crawls around me I see it dividing
it’s tearing my silence it’s breathing inside my head

Sublime being gracefully

Surviving will make you see
this remedy, this chaos all things are meant to be
insanity lingers when there’s too much to think
they will, it will prevail

As it crawls around me I see it dividing
Evoking my nightmares it’s living inside me
As it crawls around me I see it dividing
it’s tearing my silence it’s breathing inside my head

Sublime being … Gracefully…

Don’t cover me let me see!
Track Name: shock doctrine
suspended animation
a state of massive daze
shock doctrine triggers
reversing outburst
Track Name: thank you for being honest
I demand them to make
a word using my name or
else I'll be gone from this hellhole
I've worked hard into the shaping of my headaches
We've worked hard into the making of our migraines

We're grateful that you're being honest
We are grateful that you're being honest
So grateful that you wouldn't lie to us

The way that we
Wash away
Like paint from your walls
Escape from under your doors

A disease using my name.
Track Name: i have my eyes on you
I have my eyes on you ………

I have my eyes on you
I need your eyes on me

eyes that shine a first delayed impression
the shade of harder astonishment
filled with daily avid hallucinations
can’t cope with fear of loneliness

through the cracks leather bags of divided laughs
disregard comic bard if we understand
if we stop we will derail
clowny pawns too weak to seek a trail

toy figure the vision of joy
disfigured load perfect hit for your disgrace

I have my eyes on you my love
dyin’ to perform the last of
my desperate attempts to search
those altered I’s

I need your eyes on me to be
infinite act of guarding shine
it is the truth I need your eyes on me
Track Name: innocent and blue
It feels like I sink in serenity
mesmerized by the uncertainty
I' ll hold my breath to reunite
my parts with the ones beneath and beyond

I’ ll break through time to become whole again
I will open my arms to embrace the infinite

All that is innocent and blue

No god can take me home
Keep my body in chains
I’m free to be my own

No god can take me home
Keep my head in chains
I’m free to be my own
Track Name: balloons
Clown faces on a string
Happy faces until the string breaks

Noisy field - a blissful mass under-aged
Youth that clings to hope

Clown faces on a string
Happy faces until the string breaks

The home of lost balloons
The eyes that stare and spread
Uncertainty

Clown races up the sky
Virgin places to build

A colorful and unsleeping fest In the realm of innocence
Fun and fright they mix
Who would know what kids project

Clown races up the sky
Virgin places to build

As joy brings recklessness and grasps ain’t firm
friends - friends are let loose up they go the wind they ride
muddy fields - muddy eyes
a friendly smile looks like a scary grimace
when observed for long time and from great distance
no wonder - no wonder horror films use clown figures
the carriers of dreams - they float
what - what is this format of material?
Here, the size looks immeasurable
Here, the time lacks meaning
I don’t know - I don’t know whether there is hope in all this shit
Every cloud - every cloud has a silver lining they say
But now - we are above the clouds
Any silver lining would be invisible
But I know … I know this doesn’t mean it’s not there
we are carriers of dreams ... floating

but now we are above the clouds united we ride the winds and fly forever travelling through black holes in eternity
we are the carriers of dreams
floating
forever travelling through black holes in eternity
floating...
Track Name: inflated society
So high up in the sky they mount
forming homes for new life
Could it be true? All the hopes on air revolution on a new born

Inflated society
Knowledge for us
Every bit deflated
Closer back home

Could we benefit from this process?
By the time deflating and lowering
Dynamic shall be less but hope – even fewer lasts …
Track Name: descending
strange colourful rain
of wicked airy drops
wicker but wiser
a descending power
to be used at will
as every means it's neutral

in case they are forgotten
we need to learn from scratch

who would take this decision
betting on all-grown hope
reality will tell
how to - how to

avoid one more missed opportunity

being ready they blow and blow up
your every last deed of routine
imagine a close-up of a major explosion
the exployee is your TV-set
ready they blow and blow-up
your every last deed of routine

fire your gun ...

fire your gun
new world order
destruction
for all that's due to hate
I won't be here
to see what I 've hoped
as target of next shot
