Track Name: Moonlight Spark
Nice to see you safe
So embraced to life
In two days you'll stop breathing
But where life spreads its wings
Light and time reunite
Seconds, sparks, beat of a heart

The moonlight revealed you were staring at me
Moth, hypnotized, you looked like a man
The spark inside you is a sign of your soul
And everything blows in our contact

Seconds, sparks, beat of a heart
Track Name: Promise
They say that what lovers promise to each other
Must be written on the wind
On the flowing river, 'cause it won't last
But with the few words I know
I swear you won't be alone you won't have to be sad
I'll be there

Write it on the wind
And it will leave
Words will fly from your tongue
With wings of air they'll reach me
Across the ocean
Whispering in my ear
That you'll be waiting for me
That the vows won't be broken
That sadness will be just a memory
And you'll love me even more

Write it on the wind
On the silver water that will reach the sky
And will rain upon me
And every drop will be a kiss
A gift of yours
From the grey sky of London

Write it on the wind
On the silver water that will reach the sky
And will rain upon me
And every drop will be a kiss
A gift of yours
From the grey sky of London
Track Name: The Key
There are musicians that have less mercy than me
And they have fun controlling other people's minds
They think you're too stupid to understand
That all their music is fake

System wants you to draw a line
And its key to succeed is in your ears
Music used just to dominate our life
Musicians think they're alternatives

Art reduced to pornography
Drugs arised to philosophy
Everyone is an artist now
Music created to follow the line

And
The key is in my hand
The key is in my heart
The key is in my head
Now
Before you lose your mind
Before you stop thinking
Please close your ears
Track Name: A New Project
There was a time when I could live without sorrow or sadness
And flying on the wings of mind I could be secure
There'll be a time to walk in orchards where life will give its fruit
But now it's time to talk to you and I stay alone
Come here and take a look at all the dreams I hide
They say do new projects, seize the day
I'm stuck on the floor and I waste my time
Cause I need a shelter and that is you
To save me from the cold caress
To find an end to this depression
But you can't know

We're close to December but winter is too long
And if I give up will all be so warm?
The sky gifts once again burning clouds of steel
A cold compromise, illusion of having you

My dear what else can we do?
Know that the pain of abandonment
Overcomes the joy of ransom
I want to dream of you
Now please hold me kiss me
Save me and tear apart the bravery of fearing death
I ask you once again
Have you ever heard a falling leaf touching the ground
The sound disarms makes you scream and it
Pierces the soul cause we are we are we are

We're close to December but winter is too long
And if I give up will all be so warm?
The sky gifts once again burning clouds of steel
A cold compromise, illusion of having you
Track Name: Awake
Do we unite our souls?
You're asking
With our bodies wrapped in a spiral
Just an excuse to get satisfaction

And so we live under a mask
You told me
Without any doubt it sounds true
To you and to others but not
To who's gone awake
Awake

Indecent! What you were talking about
We build our mask every day
We cover to seem someone else
There's nothing we can invent to break this
As mindless zombies drowned in sleep
With peaceful thoughts created by the system
There's nothing for us here
We need to live and awake

Let me know why we
Don't feel anything
More intense than a TV screen
You know people care about
Us and show their affection
But we never fall in love

Let me know what lies
Underneath the tremendous mask that makes
You sleep nothing
Is what you contemplate
Wake up and you can wander
At the dreams you hide inside

What can I wait for
When the sea is troubled
Still miss you who remind me of the sand
What can I wait for
The scent is so warm
Waves still flowing
Sand here on your skin

Intention, fear of being seen
Sensation, I think I'll stay for a while

After this chapter, we'll see each other
Will you be waiting for me still?
Track Name: Blackbirch Land
Where is A, where's his face?
Where is B, who wanted to be free?
Where is C, who's following him?
Where is D, why did he disappear?
Where is E, emotions he won't feel anymore
Where is F?
Nothing left
Where is G? He was searching for H
When he knew his destiny
Where is I, where is me?

Flying in the sky ashes dance silently
It's snowing on the blackbirch land
With this silence no one will remember this dance
Snow melts on the blackbirch land

Where is J, who was lying awake?
Where is K, with his projects?
Where is L, who lost his job and it was all for him?

Where are M, N, O, P and Q, born the same year, died the same day
Where is R, he will never know love
Tell me where's S, who never declared his love to T
Who was just waiting for it
Where is U? He will never be born

Where is V, who knew everything?
Where is W, supporting this until the end?
Without knowing what was happening

Where is X, where's his brother Y?
They swore they'd never be separated
They died suffocated in their embrace

Over the ocean wind carries leaves of smoke
We won't know what happened, on the blackbirch land
On the earth grass of hope slowly grows
We will never forget, ashes of the blackbirch land

Where is Z, in his sadness, he killed the rest of the alphabet
He died, killed by himself
Committing suicide, he made the same mistake of Judas
He killed the possibility of being forgiven
He killed the possibility of being forgiven

There's no justice without forgiveness
