Track Name: Amplify Me
Amplify me play my song
We are louder we are wrong
With my eyes I open the ceiling
Amplify me play my song
Sing it louder sing it strong
We're all wired up to a feeling
To the sky
In disguise
in a parade of wrong and right
Track Name: Bass & Drum
So many hours I was thinking
I planned it all
It is like reading a letter
I shouldn't unfold
Outside it seems to be working
Inside I moan
Those things for some aren't simple
I wish you had known

Inside my head you are with me
And we're all a glow
But when I see you
I'm speechless
How come you don't know
Short breath and heart
palpitations
Cold sweat that shows
You sit there cool with your back turned
I guess you don't know

Fantasies are exploding and now it's on me
Fantasies are exploding I wish you could see

So many hours I was thinking
I planned it all
It is like reading a letter
I shouldn't unfold
Outside it seems to be working
Inside I moan
Those things for some aren't simple
I wish you had known

Fantasies are exploding and now it's on me
Fantasies are exploding I wish you could see
Track Name: Music Box
I want to meet a guy
who doesn't hang where I do
that he will come and smile
but wouldn't be the type to
I want him to know art
without having to make it
not too busy but still smart
whenever I need he'll make it
soft authentic thinking type
who lives the dream that I do
bitter sweetness hypnotized
by all the myths that are true
to be able to get high
without getting lost
that will need me desperately
but won't ask a lot
And please come hurry cause
It's getting hard around here
Track Name: Alone
Alone
Time is floating as my heart is gone
Trembling through the blanket
Mommy fell asleep
I wish she'll always be there
A woman isn't yours to keep
Somehow
Nothing’s makes me sleep I wonder why
Garden for paranoids
Drowning in my sink
I'll never be good enough
I'm not the strongest link
Sleeping pills will turn to songs of freedom
Centuries will rot in my hands
See I see the sounds of new dimension
We're not far from falling to the end
Someone is hunting me
Fighting my raw being
I am awake for two weeks
Blind by my sight seeing
Cherubs and giants
Man in black suits
A present war of character
Ripping me from the roots
Track Name: A Song For Our Parents
After all these years I found
You want me to be like every one
But it's too late now
I can't think clear and as long as I'm here
Can you hear me?
Before your song turns to sorrow
Before your stories untold
I see them shining like silver
I see them shining like gold
The shouting voice is still sharp
Don't let it fall apart
Track Name: New Village
She didn't call the Meds again
She's stuck with the disease
The world it stops and then begins
We're down here on our knees
We add the minutes passing by
To know what we are worth
We chase our dreams we're running fast
Against the turning of the earth
the songs are playing in our heads
but they can't reach our hearts
the government's a piece of shit
you've given up on art
I asked the clouds sailing up above
to stop smothering the light
I called you for the last time again
I wonder if you might…
Track Name: Piano 1976
Nobody's looking
I'm a corner in my room
Sneaky shapes and private gates unfolding
Track Name: Lost
I'm so lost that I can't even find my glasses
Oh.. glasses that will help me see
How I wish that you were here with me
Telling me stories of the girl I used to be.
I'm so bored that my words all come out too slowly
Oh.. show me lands I've never seen
Inner storms keep me warm
Now they're overflowing
Waiting for a ship to sink the sea.
Shattered things fall into completion
Morning shines the broken lines
With the same old familiar motion.
I feel like going
To be far
Wherever there are falling stars
Foolish things are growing
Don't you stop my flowing
Restless I will be.
Shattered things fall into completion
Morning shines the broken lines
With the same old familiar motion.
Dizzy fish and shiny flyers come to visit me
I'm asking your permission to be with them endlessly.
Track Name: Soldier
You will go and you'll find you've been wrong
Ten thousand miles too long
And it's not only you that's to blame
You've been raised by the rules of the game
And I know you've been sitting on high
Watching mistakes passing by
And you shrugged and you turned a blind eye
When they told you too many have died
Yes I remember one, told me once, told me once
The same actions will yield the same outcomes
You will go and you'll find you've been fooled
Following all of their rules
We're the same on both sides of the line
How did they turned you so blind?
