Track Name: Far
Light through the window
Told me, the time is coming
To wake and stand up now
My feet hit the ground
And lead my actions
Everything seems mechanical

Every morning tells the same story
I can’t remember the last time
When I thought about it

Feel the time run away
Like a handful of sand in your hand
Too late to look back
In a blink of an eye
Yesterday’s so far away

You run again and again
And trying to catch your fate
But no time to look back
In a blink of an eye
Tomorrow’s so far away

Sometimes I’m scared
To see the months and years
Pass as a single day
That stupid rat race
Phagocyte me and my life
Day after day
The old stories appear dusty
Today this feeling grew on me
And fuck my head
Track Name: Apathy
Nearby your world there’s mine,
From dust and broken glass.
Lay down by the masses,
At the bottom of your stairs.

Am I the reflection you don’t want to see?
It hurts your perfection, so sorry.
Big city product. I survive
Like a parasite
With appetite for freedom.

Deep into loneliness I’m falling.
Between walking walls
>Without smiles.
Waiting for someone to come.
I’m one of the buildings,
But a poor one.

Lost in artificial pleasure,
Lost in lights and sounds from The city,
Back in my memory.
Lost in your eyes,
Left on the main street’s side Alone.

Everyone are strangers now.
And they’re wondering why
Give isn’t a cure, are you sure?
Apathy, means death to me.
Track Name: Sunday
You look behind the window
The sun wouldn’t show his face today
Clouds swallowed up the sky now
The rain falls as a funeral day

You can’t find some reasons
To explain what you’re thinking about
But loneliness runs through your veins
There’s no word to describe your pain

She falls down on you
When the morning comes
And catch your throat
Until tomorrow’s gone

You talked about an achievement
As if this cycle comes to an end
But it still remains the same
She would be there again

Every day is like sunday.
Track Name: Old Picture
I walk through the fields
Feel the sand on my feet
The landscape reminds me
A lot of memories
From a distant past, I think

As a picture
Which never curled up by the time
The plain appears empty
Here alone lives the wind
As a single passenger

Sometimes, I think these places are
A perfect picture you can’t see twice
That’s a part of mystery
A part of memory
Anybody wouldn’t see it…

Impressions of lightness
Between imaginary or reality
A part of sadness
Sinks into my heart so deeply

When the tide goes out
Everything seems redrawn
You feel like disarmed
Everything changed around
A foreign country you cross now
At the bottom of my heart

As a picture
Which never curled up by the time
The plain appears empty
Here alone lives the wind
As a single passenger.
Track Name: Ground Collapse
One day, you swore
You swore to be another man
Forget the past
Turn over a new leaf if you can

The good old time
Should keep safe your memory
Don’t be afraid
Now, you’re still breathing

Why do you feel so dizzy
You’ve lost all your bearings
As if the ground was collapsing
Into an endless hole you’re falling

For years you run in the dark
Still begging to see daylights
Time flies…

So, are you still alive
As in a deep coma
You seem dived

The Darkness consumes your soul
Does it make no sense at all
And even all seems lost
The flame still burns in your heart.
Track Name: Useless
Lying on your bed
You look at the sky again
Clouds run from right to left
But you don't ask why
You seem to be so empty
Paralysed by something ?

You're falling out there
In the middle of nowhere
You're falling out there
No one would think
To find you there

Now you don't mind
If you're wasting your time
You cross the street
Like an invisible man
No one cares about you
But you don't care too
You walk alone
Far from this place
Prisoner of this useless day.
Track Name: Worthless
Cultural profIt
Never feeds us who fear the fate
Marginalized upon lies
And subjected to procrastinate
Under the law of the strongest

You need a privilege
To take a risk
And the good position to live
Considered worthless

Look to the future
And cross your fingers.
Track Name: Everytime They Die
Soon or later
My eyes will bleed
For all the tears that i can't cry

Everytime they die,
The same feelings
Come back again, and push me down

Death is real now
Burying my head in the shadows
Without scythe nor lethal breath

The time has come,
And I won't see through you
I won't see suffering deep inside you

Now you're gone
And my selfishness explode
While I think of what we could have done

Death is real now
First the loss, then the cry
And the time passed away
This Dark Passenger robbed everything

Death is real now
And till the end of my life
I won't tell you no lies, but it's not over yet.
Track Name: Goodbye
Can 't believe 20 years have passed
Everytime you bring back
All these memories
I feel like it was yesterday
When you told me the life is great

Now we don't walk on the same side
Ready to go, you keep the smile
As a child, you take the best
And let the rest

We don't walk on the same side
Ready to go you keep the smile
And just say bye, as you'll see me next

I feel guilty
For not picking up the phone
And understand that
Nothing will ever be the same
Please don't judge me, I didn't do wrong
I'm just too scared to say goodbye.
