Track Name: On Fire
On the streets that we walked through the rain
On the hill that's seen the story of your life
I found myself caught in the movie that made you cry

Every seed that you've sown with your tears
The empires you've built through the years
I just turn and look out of the window and it's for real

My senses are on fire
My senses are on fire

The world in the palm of your hand
and the words of the priest you understand
they hang over you like a shadow, like your silhouette

And my senses are on fire
My senses are on fire

The past of the future is now
Track Name: You Never Listen
When they say I failed my mission
And I’ll be losing all ambitions
Will you come and listen
To what I’ve to say?

When I’m on your television
Blushing with shame for my decisions
Will you be so kind and listen
To what I’ve to say?

About the tears I cannot wipe
About the options never tried
About the time I spend denying
That all that you see is me lying

Everyone says I’ve failed my mission
And I’m losing all ambitions
Because you never listen
To what I’ve to say

About the years I cannot wipe
About the lives I’ve never tried
About the time I spend denying
That all that you see is me dying
Track Name: Insane (album version)
You may have the right to be insane,
but you should do something to change
the weight you carry on your shoulders it’s just too much for your waist
Maybe you’re right to be insane but if the weight gets thrown away
You could take on the illusion that there’s love there on the way

Then we could share our way
Share our peace somewhere today
And think that life ain’t stupid all the way

Whatever happened in your past, you keep it stuck there long and fast
But there are lives we have to live and, oh dear, now we’re at our best

We could be somewhere
Turn our silences up, there
And mix them with the softness of our bodies and the air

And I may have the right to be insane
but I would like to take some blame
‘Cause it’s just us on whom our things depend, just look at it again
Maybe I really am insane but I will only do my rightful share
You want to save the planet, but there’s this little world we have

And we could share our way
Share our peace somewhere today
And think that life ain’t stupid all the way

Whatever happened in my past, whatever got stuck in me this fast
You’re so beautiful today and I am at my best

So we should be somewhere
Turn our silences up, there
And mix them with the softness of our bodies, yeah
Track Name: Still On Your Side
When in my fortress I lie and caress
The thoughts of you I keep inside
I’m always impressed, get almost obsessed
Then I turn it ‘round and slowly untie
I flow to the heights of my new lives
And find a place where I can hide
You’re never there, your beautiful glare
Has gone somewhere for a different ride

But you know that
I’m still on your side
For all the things that we share and all that we both divide
And you’re still on my side
For all the things that we were and all that we are now
I’m still on your side

And when the rest of what were the best
Memories of life to enter my mind
Become suppressed, set behind the crest
Of the new worlds that pull me inside
I’ll flow in the heights of my new lives
And have a place where I can hide
You’ll not be there, your beautiful glare
Will be somewhere on a different ride

But you know that
I’ll be still on your side
For all the things that we share and all that we both divide
You’ll be still on my side
For all the things that we were and all that we are now
I’m still on your side
For all the things that we share and all that we both divide
And you’re still on my side
For all the things that we were and all that we are now
I’m still on your side
Track Name: Get A Little Wild
No sign of life or the moon, very strange for a Wednesday night
well now the past life seems doomed and tomorrow not too bright.
You’re right, we’ve never had much room, maybe it’s the country and maybe it’s you
but I know you won’t stand in the queue, you will go straight on through

With Italian Champaign or Belgian beer then if you like
Russian vodka for the pain, Turkish blend to calm you down
we’ll forget the next day, the past that we don’t like
anything to soothe the pain at least for a little while
get a little wild.

These strange times of change when we correct our recent lies
well now the past life seems doomed tomorrow not too bright.

With Italian Champaign or Belgian beer then if you like
Irish whiskey for the pain, Turkish blend to calm you down
we’ll forget the next day and the past that we don’t like
anything to soothe the pain at least for a little while
get a little wild.

You say you feel lost on this street
and you feel just all too weak
now you doubt you have the guts to take all this
or to wait sober for the next bliss

yeah I’m surprised that we’re still alive
yeah I’m surprised that we’re still alive

we’ll forget the next day the past that we don’t like
anything to soothe the pain at least for a little while
get a little wild.
Track Name: In The Bubble
I've dreamt that you were falling
and you could not reach the ground line.
It hurt as much as knowing
that I couldn't help you as you tried...

But how would you know?
How could I tell you the way to go?
How could I show
when we were all these worlds apart.

And I heard you crying
I saw you drop the lifeline.
It hurt as much as knowing
that I couldn't reach you as you tried...

But how would you know?
How could you I tell you the way to go?
How could I show
when we were all these worlds apart.

Should I wake up and let it go?
I do not know which world's my home.
Is this just a bubble that I should burst?
Oh I can't bear to live in another world.
Track Name: A Note
note: what’s held you back for so long?
were you afraid you’d go wrong?
now you want to travel away from your troubles
i’ll not be in your way
go and find the world where you want to be
slow to see things as i was now i see the whole cause
there was a problem deep at the bottom
so i’ll not be in your way
go and find the life that you want to live
but now i need to turn to a song
will you sing with me love?
away on your travel how is your problem?
found a place where to stay?
your free world where you always wanted to be
Track Name: Leaving For England
There are so many things I wanted to tell you
so many things I wanted to do with you
But the summer sky is closing up now
and the rain will soon come through

You are leaving for England
'cause that's the best that you can do
you say it's a fairly short distance
but I wonder if I'll be so close to you

Seems that home is where the dough is
but with mortgages and all those ravages...yeah,
the leftist government doesn't seem to help your cause, no
so the summer sky is closing up now
and the fog will soon come through

You are leaving for England
is that the best that you can do?
You say it's a fairly short distance
but I wonder if she'll be so close to you
Track Name: Apocalyptical
We’ve got a place, we call it a grave
Try not to breathe in here please
An apocalyptical cave
Well, that’s the way to get through these days

We've got a room that resembles the doom
We'd better gone to the moon
An apocalyptical cave
Well, that’s the way to get through these days

But you've got you someone to mother you
And I’ve got me someone who can set me free
We'll get through these days to some better place
And I will root out this bitter taste
Track Name: Not Much Left To Do Wrong Now
It was hell I couldn't escape the pain
Bruised, hollow, cold and ashamed
I could do anything, but
It was hell so I'd scream and I'd run away
I'd play a child then I'd play a mate
Now I see there's not much left to do wrong now

and I missed the things we could’ve seen but never tried
and I missed the things that went down the sink of your pride
and I missed the chance to make you see that I hadn't lied

Just can’t help but open the door again
break out of the shell, out of the hell
there’s not much left

still I miss the things we could’ve been but never tried
and I miss the things that went down the sink of my pride
and I missed the chance to make you see that I hadn't lied

All the symphonies that would always see me through
All the drinks that would uplift our minds to take a different view
All the songs that would save our lives from seeming in vain,
They seem in vain.
