Track Name: Spoiled
SPOILED

We were not far
We were not far
Boy, it's you
Who turned your eyes away

You grew up to
This lonesome creep
Grew up to
A window without stars

Been seeking love
in dreams and woods
Been seeking love
where you never should
and you're still crying

So stick up to
The love you have
For the love you seek
May not be yours to have
And keep you crying

In time
You're going to be just fine
Don't cry
You're going to make it right
In time
You'll be so fine
Don't cry
You're just a spoiled child
Track Name: It ends with a smile
IT ENDS WITH A SMILE

Dressed up in sentimental drags
I sit still and watch our story from its end
Dressed up in sentimental drags
I should melt but I just quiver in your hands

I don't wanna know whose fault is that
I'm the one who gets lonely in this hollow depth
A dead end street that's where I am
I don't think I can handle it when stuff come to an end
But I'm

So glad it ends
And it ends with a smile
So glad it ends
And it ends in this ice

Dressed up in sentimental drags
I sit still and watch our story from its its end
Said you don't like labelling stuff
Then whatever this is, whatever this is, whatever this is I'm

So glad it ends
And it ends with a smile
So glad it ends
And it ends in this ice
Track Name: Man on fire
MAN ON FIRE
(in memory of Alfredo Ormando)

I'm sorry but I
I think I'll make
I wanna make
One big mistake
For there is no future
And I've got no future

And it hurts me so bad
Hurts me so bad
Gets me mad
Gets me mad

I'm choosing the fire
To crush your faith
To say goodbye
On Christmas day
For my burning for love,
Is like burning for shame

Just like the day you came, my love.
You know, nothing's changed, nothing's come
Just like the day you made me cry
A man who love's a man on fire
Track Name: Axolotl
AXOLOTL

Giving you the best I might be wrong
But it's so exciting
Giving you the best I might be right
But it's so damn scary

I'm sinking in a town I've never known
Sinking in the rain, I'm tying not to show
Sinking with my love, I'm
Sinking with a bomb, I'm
Sinking again
It can't be wrong

Break my heart again
And I won't seem to mind at all
Colour me
The way you please and I
I'll feel at home

Giving you the best I might be wrong
For it's so frustrating
Giving you the best I might be right
But it's so damn scary

I know I will be breathing when I really want to
I know that I could grow up if I really wanted to
I may be stuck in here
I may be stuck in here
It doesn't mean I like it

Break my heart again
And I won't seem to mind at all
Colour me
The way you please and I
I'll write a song
Track Name: Fall from Grace together
FALL FROM GRACE TOGETHER

You should go right now
My mind is still
And so is time
But if I lose you now
How will I ever feel alive?

We were supposed to fall from grace together
(How come) you're still up there
Still up there
Still up there
And I'm in hell forever?

You should go right now
And fade away in endless nights
But if I lose you now
it's like a little suicide
Track Name: Wintertown
WINTERTOWN

It doesn't feel that bad to know I've lost you, dear
I keep walking around
In a wintertown
It doesn't feel that bad to know I've lost you dear
All I have to do
Is just keep on breathing

Blank conversations
My wunderkammer of lies
Are you still by my side?
Distant reflections
Won't bother if you don't mind
Are you still by my side?

I get all humoresque each time I see your face
I keep writin' songs
All day long
I won't do anything to cure this wounded heart
This pain inside
It keeps me alive

May I seduce you
In my wunderkammer of lies?
Are you still by my side?
Distant reflections
Don't drag me into the light
Are you still by my side?

What faith can help you through the darkness?
When lights they shine and fade away?
They come and go
They come and go
Come and go away
Track Name: An intruder
AN INTRUDER

You're such a gift
I never asked for
A piece of trash
I could never touch
Never touch

You cry too much
I cannot stand it
You speak too loud
Whenever you're drunk
You're drunk

You should know by now
You're an intruder in this house
An intruder in this house
You should know by now
You're an intruder
An intruder

But since you're gone
The walls keep weeping
I hear them sigh
With your very voice
The sky's still there
The trees keep falling I'm stuck in here
Waiting for some end
Some kind of end
Track Name: Porcelain
PORCELAIN

This is the story of a dream
That could not be shared.
In an old room
On a dusty shelf
The dream lives on
And the dreamer is a prisoner.
He's waiting for that day
When the seal will break
To set all the ghosts free.
Then the reconstruction will begin...
Track Name: Morning lights
MORNING LIGHTS

I'll be with you now
Consequences of a sound
Oh, come to me now
I'll be right here in the sound

Been trying to meet you
But your life is always someplace I can't see
Been trying to meet you
To see what's up
To see what's up

I'll be with you now
Like a ghost out of a sound
Oh, come to me now
I'll be right here in the sound

Been trying to meet you
But your life is always someplace I can't see
Been trying to meet you
To see what's up
To see what's up

Please let me sleep!
Don't bother me!
The morning lights
Won't come for me!

… as long as I love you...

“Can you fight your life?”
Someday I will
Track Name: Reconstruction of the body
RECONSTRUCTION OF THE BODY

I'm stronger than you think
Healthier than I thought
I was before
Stronger than you think
Healthier than you thought I was before
I said goodbye
I said goodbye
Bye
Bye

Don't cry now
Just sing a few lines
“Everything I was
Everything I was
I must forget”
Don't cry now
Just sing a few lines
“Everything I was
Everything I was
I must forget
I must forget
I must forget”
Track Name: Come what may
COME WHAT MAY

So I thank you, come what may
How many days for your desire
I listen to your teaching voice at night
My ordinary body dries

Then I'll go
“I ain't ready for all of this”
“I ain't ready for all of this”
“I ain't ready for all of this”

Joyful master bring me down
Black haired sister graze my crown
And I'll come out of a flower in your hand
My ordinary shape will bend

Then I'll go
“I ain't ready for all of this”
“I ain't ready for all of this”
“I ain't ready for all of this”
