Track Name: To the Lighthouse
The sky is not clear today
The sun tries to dig some light
And there are lines on my face
and there are buildings in my eyes

I beg my body to resist
I give my sleep for any price
'Cause you don't need me anymore
It takes some hurt to arise again

Something broke inside
The self seeker is gone
'Cause she's asking back her life
but she can't have this life of love

Lady can you respect your man
you see I'm lying by your side
When you're so selfish
you 're wasting some love

On my way to the lighthouse

Now every night I fall with your absence to the floor
It's when the sleep takes back the pen off my hands
Yes but something broke inside
The self seeker is gone
'Cause she's asking back her life
but she can't have this life of love

And it's now time
On my way to the lighthouse

I'll carry my heart to your homeland
to the icebergs of your heart
I'll freeze my feelings and make it my home

I'll carry my heart to your homeland
to the icebergs of your heart
I'll freeze my feelings and make it mine

I could have glued your broken parts inside
I could have glued your broken parts inside
I could have glued your broken parts inside
I could have glued your broken parts inside
Track Name: Knife
The morning draws a radiant smile
I'm leaning towards the emotive side
The subtle way to shake the hands
The flesh, the silhouette, the height

Sinking into pillow's depths
to the arms of neverending fears
Workers working underneath
I'm crying for the world in the dead time

The Heaven is in our eyes
The Heaven is in our eyes
The Heaven is in our eyes
But we haven't seen it yet

The physical is a fictive act
a convention, not a real fact
It aches no more, erased in time
away the sound, it keeps the pace with mine

I befriended moonlight rays
casting light on my blank page
Swapping promises to keep alive
Standing up to the ravages of time

The Heaven is in our eyes
The Heaven is in our eyes
The Heaven is in our eyes
But we haven't seen it tonight
The Heaven is in our eyes
The Heaven is in our eyes
The Heaven is in our eyes
But we haven't seen it yet
Track Name: Most Desired
Birds are traveling north
they’ve been watching the sea from above
they’re heading all their way to fly back
with the most desired
Time is healing but time is gone
you’ve got the wisdom but you’re not so strong
your back is weak
your memory is gone

I again, taking the way back
Rows of heads, fastened seatbelts

Flattered by witches and dolls
they’ve been charming with glitter and gold
I wonder when the sirens leave me
What if I retire

But I was made to try
While this city is a burning fire
for the lightened glass
I waited to shine

I again, taking the way back
Rows of heads, fastened seatbelts

and I’m still close

I again, taking the way back
Rows of heads, fastened seatbelts

And she used to try me
And she used to hide me

Right before you make your thoughts complete
Remember I'm a man
On a polar star
On a sailing ship

I again, taking the way back
Rows of heads, fastened seatbelts

but I’m still close

I again, taking the way back
Rows of heads, fastened seatbelts

and I’m still close

Time runs up on my spine
but time runs out
If I knew that I could be saved
then I would take my life away
Track Name: Next Day
Hours are changing their appetite
I decide not to resign
For the words lose sense on the way to their end
I simulate and try to pretend

These marbles still carry your young footsteps
Those buildings they know you so well
Every day I dive into rivers of demise
It's coming again

It's when God gives sleep to spare you from pain
While others continue their lives
I rewind to the moments when I had you here alive
I align to signs

Moments of grieving are out of sight
I decide not to resign
My defense grows bigger so I don't perceive the pain
Your body is on hold

Time keeps putting pressure on our hearts
Angels are already there
Can you hear this sound? it's coming up again
When it's dark

And what with this skylight
and why it looks so high?
It's hard to cope with your loss
when you were not meant to die
Every time that I try I'm paralyzed
Could it be otherwise?
Seeking sentence to define this crooked line
in our lives

I'll save your talkings
I'll save your talkings
I'll save your talkings
I'll save your talkings

I'll save your talkings
I'll save your soul
In the night the next day's gonna shine not that bright

Angels cried when I had you in my hands
with a lot of questions
When their eyes go dry I surrender to the flow while
your lady cries 'cause she's giving up her life
And you 're giving lessons
And it aches for every word you just can't spell now

You cried in silence
You cried in silence
You cried in silence
Where was I when you cried in silence
You cried
Track Name: Loss
Could you stay here for a while
Until we fix our lives
You should see your plans flourished
You should see your work shined

You opened up our eyes
But now your body is tired
For giving me the perfect life


First he ceased to write
And then he ceased to speak
The advantage is just fine
A flame will cease to gleam


Could you stay here for a while
Until we fix our lives
You should see your plans flourished
You should see your work shined

You opened up our eyes
And now your body is tired
For giving me the perfect life


First he ceased to write
And then he ceased to speak
It could have made me wise
A flame has ceased to gleam

He travels away
He travels away
He travels away
He travels away
He travels away
