Track Name: Všetko, čo smieme chcieť
vždy blízko šťastia, blízko rán
mám dva svety odkedy pamätám
ale kam dnes pôjdem viem
jeden svet len a všetko si vezmem

si moja zem a moje nebo
tak rýchlo kým nás táto nádej nezlomí
kam dnes pôjdem viem a všetko si vezmem

dnes ma nič nebolí
a už sa nebojím
splním si svoj dávny sen
šiel som oblúkom až sem a jedno iste viem

vždy blízko šťastia, blízko rán
mám dva svety odkedy pamätám
ale kam dnes pôjdem viem
jeden svet len a všetko si vezmem

pýtaš sa či som si istý, ako dá sa zistiť
že toto je ten správny sen
šiel som oblúkom až sem
a jedno iste viem

dnes nečakajte nás
je nám súdený len malý podiel
a toto sú naše časy najlepšie časy
všetko čo smieme chcieť
dnes nečakajte nás
dostaneš len malý podiel
a toto sú naše časy najlepšie časy
všetko čo smieme chcieť
Track Name: Odznova
povedz to slovo jediné
ženy to vedia no ja nie
ak si ťa natiahnem na plátne
to plátno vymením za bytné

nahá sa obzeráš v zrkadle
ty si sa zmenila no ja nie
povedz to slovo jediné
ženy to vedia naivné

stretnem ťa na konci kostola
náhodné stretnutia zabolia
nesieš si plátno s farbami
schovám sa v daždi s kvapkami

dávny flám začína uveríš
v príbehu za riekou nemusíš
slobodný stále utekám
nemám to rád budem sám

ľudia sú zvláštni verte mi
za riekou čakali premeny
všetko sa začína odznova
odznova
Track Name: Celý
cítil som sa celý dnes opäť na kúsky som
nie je asi súdené dvom také niečo nájsť

cítil som sa skvelý a nebolo to iba v snoch
zdá sa že nesmieš tak ďaleko zájsť

chcel som zostať v mieri znova vo vojne som
asi sa to nehodí k dvom také niečo nájsť

cítil som sa byť v cieli späť na štarte som
zostalo niečo čo bolo vtedy?
niečo čo sme chceli?

neviem či som vinný alebo divný
či stojí to všetko za tú chvíľu
neviem či som vinný alebo silný
či stojí niekto za tú chvíľu
ale cítil som sa celý!
Track Name: Uspávanka
posmejem slnko ospievame uspávanku
v opustenom zosmutnenom zámku
sľuby pavučín na kľučkách prach
mať celkom rád manželský háj

stonajúc nite slov
zasnežené okná
pošleme sa do spánkov
odišiel aj oblak
kráčajúc za tebou
veď noc je pekná
s malou a ospalou
keď ťa sneh spozná

pomaly jemne kráčaš zo sna po dni a v spánku
čítali slová a opäť znova v nočnom vánku
oblaky čakali dojaté slová bol azda ospalý
náhle si stíchla

stonajúc nite slov
zasnežené okná
pošleme sa do spánkov
odišiel aj oblak
kráčajúc za tebou
veď noc je pekná
s malou a ospalou
keď ťa sneh spozná
Track Name: Bez slov
som šťastný že mám aspoň jeden dôvod
som šťastný že mám niečo čo nikto nezmení
neschováš žiaľ ten má tisíc možných podôb
a koľko síl ťa stálo aby si sa bál

dnes opäť pôjdem nahý hmlou
dýchať vzduch čo má farbu bez slov
dnes opäť skúsim druhý dych
a možno zbavíme sa aj boľavých snov

skúšam to sám nájsť zmysel našich slobôd
skúšam to sám hľadať zmysel väzení
som šťastný že mám aspoň jeden dôvod
veď koľko síl ťa stálo, aby si sa bál

dnes opäť pôjdem nahý hmlou
dýchať vzduch čo má farbu bez slov
dnes opäť skúsim druhý dych
a možno zbavíme sa aj boľavých snov
Track Name: Lunchbreak
(instrumental)
Track Name: Can't Have Both
we're crazy, we're ill and fake
but here we both have a stake
it's something with heart and soul
though my mind says no again

i mean to believe in her
perhaps it's 'cause there's no one else
no one with heart and soul as big and suddenly small

and on this game we dwell
we play it very well

i choke 'cause i need you so
but there is only one way
i know when i melt like snow
but i don't want you to stay
please stay
Track Name: Where You Meet Yourself
you pray that i come back and try to explain
why i've erased the mails you've sent ever since that day
and who keeps stealing all the time
when i should be by your side
who has dared to cross my path
since i don’t care 'bout your life
"is that what you have on your mind?"

i wish you had this fire when i was your slave
now you feel the silk you lie on can't change the pain
the pain that i once tried when your name was my whole life
now you're going through the mill of not knowing why

but there you just meet yourself
there you meet yourself

you're mad about the fact my life hasn't changed
and pray "let there be no sky, let there be no day"
so i cannot try again and all i live is just your life
now you're going through the mill of not knowing why

but there you just meet yourself
you just meet yourself
Track Name: Precious Wave
today we'll sell our lives for they're of no use
i've heard you can get a good price in hollywood
you're bound to fade away
we won't get back on that precious wave
you'll never learn what you've meant to me
so let me tell you all of my life
till your close to, close to me
today we'll sell our lives 'cause they're of no use
are we really free to decide on what we'll do?
it's bound to slip away
we won't get back on that precious wave
so let's be ahead of time
and tell me all of your life
now you can lie so lie to me
and i'll believe you
i'll hold you
i'll go to stop the time
and for a while our worlds will not collide
Track Name: Right Until Now
i know somebody somewhere
who can disguise her grace
i know a person down there
you'd never tell by her face

she's walked through her life day by day
and no one ever says
"i always wanted to know
how beauty can destroy a life in a way"

yeah right until now i never needed to know
how far down she found
her reasons for going on in this life

i know somebody somewhere
we share our feelings and tastes
she's walked through her life day by day
and never complained

yeah right until now she never needed to show
how far down she found her reasons for going on in this life
Track Name: End Of The Story
so bye bye love i'm taking off
there's nothing you can do when you feel trapped
there's no end to the story
but it's time that we leave it now
so bye bye love i'm taking off
'cause all i need is some true want
there's none left of the old glory
when it's warm i don't feel warm

it's just the stuff you do
when you can't bear your life
you always knew it had the spirit of a crime
it's the stuff you don't do
when you care for mine
you always knew it had the spirit of a crime
and i ain't got time
Track Name: How Long
when your tears are on their way
down your face and smear your make up
we will have the final say
on where the road we're now choosing takes us
and i hope it will be your face
then i'll need nothing else

all in all
we'll always have to put our love aside
to make it through the day
we'll always have to keep on changing our minds
so what will we lose
is there anyone to say
if we go
or if we stay
for one day
or for as long as the rest of our lives

so when your tears are on their way
will they be tears of love or hatred?
i wonder how long it will take
till you feel run down and jaded
i just hope it will be your face
then i'll need nothing else

all in all
we'll always have to put our love aside
to make it through the day
we'll always have to keep on changing our minds
so what will we lose
is there anyone to say
if we go
or if we stay
for one day
or for as long as the rest of our lives
