Track Name: pressure
i've been dreaming of a wall
mixing fear of the unknown
and some cravings for
a landscape to draw

i've been praying at the wall
blood is rushing in
hopes are gathering

i've been building up a wall
expecting a miracle
all my ideals slide
to the other side

i've been knocking at the wall
forces melting in
endless down counting

where cracks can be seen
then life can begin

i've been dreaming of a wall
i've been dreaming of a wall
i've been dreaming of a wall
Track Name: the size of the world
flash
the colour of sound
in a split second

flash
here out of the blue
all you feel is true

escape time, escape space
expect time
to give you extra space
deep and wide

escape your body for
a larger scope
of unknown, unheard of
landscapes

flash
the colour of sound
in a split second

flash
here out of the blue
all you feel is true

escape time, escape space
expect time
to give you extra space
for a while

life to waste, night is young
i know best
expect death to be wrong
and misplaced

flash
the colour of sound
in a split second

flash
here out of the blue
all you feel is true
Track Name: missing person
where do i belong
this tune needs a song
where do i belong
my future looks so wrong

sixteen years are gone
and i feel alone
sixteen years are gone
i need some bigger wounds

i've waited so long
now i feel so strong
i've waited too long
my future looks so young

take a step beyond
walk away from home
take a step beyond
the void of being a son
Track Name: garage babies
we're not making any sense
we're just playing for ourselves
we're like two orphans
laughing at their plans
whichever the time or place
we are lost in grace
we are lost in space

let's make some music today
you will sing and i will play
who needs instruments
this is not the point
this is all about the way
how you feel sublime
when you waste your time

consider it as a chance
or as some kind of escape
showing directions
drawing horizons
i will always see your face
as the complexion
of my asylum
Track Name: this
this is a bloody war
this is a bursting star
this is a bloody war
this is a bursting star
i don't know what you are
i don't know what you are

this is a feeling strange
this is a red orange
this is a feeling strange
this is a red orange
we don't know what is strange
we don't know what is strange

this is a sunny moon
this is a funny gloom
this is a sunny moon
this is a funny gloom
we don't know where's our tomb
we don't know where's our tomb
Track Name: two
and you're telling me
what they think when they turn on the light
and you're asking me
to tell you a story 'bout the night
it's alright with me
but i can't remember how it starts
it's all fight in me
i just can't remember, was it white ?

and you're telling me
what they think when they turn on the light
and you're asking me
to tell you a story 'bout the night
it's alright with me
but i can't remember how it starts
it's all fight in me
i just can't remember, was it white ?
Track Name: when my fingers are alone
when my fingers are alone
they count everything
they show everything
they miss you

when my fingers are alone
their motion's meaningless
you just cannot even guess
they are one

a set of cracking tools
won't comply to the rules

when my fingers are alone
they don't wear a ring
they won't go snapping
they need you

when your fingers are alone
their motion's meaningless
i just cannot even face
they have gone

a set of cracking tools
won't comply to the rules

when my fingers are alone
when my fingers are alone
when my fingers are alone
when my fingers are alone

a set of cracking tools
won't comply to the rules
and they will find a way
to make you cry today
Track Name: burning flowers
i've been speaking
so low alone
i've been tasting
the floor
i've been writing
to imagine
you bought me at
the store

then here you are
burning flowers

i've been running
for years alone
like a machine
no soul

where could have been
my stolen life
now that i've lost
my watch

then here you are
burning flowers

i've been speaking
so low alone
i've been tasting
the floor
i've been writing
to imagine
you bought me at
the store

then here you are
burning flowers
Track Name: open mind
can you tell you know me well
can you say you know me
even when
our roads look parallel

can you tell you know me well
will you dare and ask me
if i want
to come and join the game

i'm so tied down and so free
everything is palpable
and out of reach at the same time

let's sit down and have coffee
it's the cheapest drink
and i don't think
i can afford deceit

can you tell you know me well
can you say you know me
even when
our roads look parallel

can you tell you know me well
will you dare and ask me
if i want
to come and join the game

let's sit down and have coffee
let's see if you are
worth making friends with
and have an open mind
Track Name: black and shiny
how are you
what you got today
anything new

take me downtown
let's get our sound
squares going round

take me downtown
let's get around
the place you found

hey it's me
look what i brought today
some black and shiny

take me downtown
let's get our sound
squares going round

take me downtown
let's get around
the place you found

play me something
we'll sit and stare
copy, tape me
the thrill that we share

take me downtown
let's get our sound
squares going round

take me downtown
let's get around
the place you found
