Track Name: Step Outside
Step Outside:

step outside
your walls are keeping the winters bone locked up
feel the warmth of the world
rushing through your bones

see the faces of the people
waiting for the subway lines
shutting themselves up
from any irregularity

when the traffic light
stops at yellow just a little too long
the path is cleared for thoughts
coming up in your head

a brief reminder
for the comrades waiting around you
that none of them is
walking this streets alone

you'll start another brief attempt
you'll start another brief attempt
you want another brief attempt
you need another brief attempt

what is this world outside
once so prominent
where the people all around you
are nothing more than objects in your way
what is keeping us from using
the unbinding moments we share together
as lessons for the times when good communication is inevitable

you kiss the girl next to you
hug a stranger on the open street
scream out loud as you spin in circles over the crosswalk
"all is well, we are here, why the long faces, open up, dont be afraid of different ways"
you get arrested locked up in a cold room again with just a naked stonewall to look at

you got another dark attempt
you got another dark attempt
you got another dark attempt
you got another dark attempt
Track Name: Just Like You
Just Like You:

doped with religion
a believer in dreams
practicing shiatsu
doing magic streams

chanting mantras
reading too much of that book
still learning wushu
sitting on a lazy top

i threw my life away
always waiting for illusion and
talking about drugs
living in confusion

welcome to the sky
it's too much crazy at all
laughing in a face of love
just like a dripping waterfall
like a dripping waterfall

wild as a sorry
magic cold
like a story
untold

welcome to the sky
it's too much crazy at all
laughing in a face of love
just like a dripping waterfall

falling into mind games again
but I don't wanna hurt you
I'm from the outside lost
just like a fool
just like you

wild as a sorry
magic cold
like a story
untold
Track Name: Fine
Fine:

from the mountains in the east
to the wide atlantic sea
everything is quite the same
I have seen it on tv

blue planet won't go down so fast
the colors won't cease to exist
you know the days i like the most
are the ones who are filled with mist

cloudy days make me happy (one more step into white darkness)
make me lose the fear of getting lost (one more step into ...)
cause when the mist envelopes the surroundings (one more step into ...)
then i think maybe everything is just fine

from the mountains in the east
to the wild atlantic sea
i have losened every screw
i have adorned every tree
sweet white angel dance with me

cloudy days make me happy (one more step into white darkness)
make me lose the fear of getting lost (one more step into ...)
cause when the mist envelopes the surroundings (one more step into ...)
then i think maybe everything is just fine
Track Name: Monsters
Monsters:

look there are no monsters
hiding under your bed
no stranger is waiting at your window to cut you down
the only thing you have to cope with
is the fact that you are purely
absolutely on your own
Track Name: North
North:

all the save feelings in the city
come up when she's gone
when the night is getting clearer
nobody is wrong

the crowd is rolling the dices
chasing after some luck
coming out of the river
they all got dirt on their socks

enormous roads between them
digging through the wastelands
you are rolling going faster
faster to the north

we all would be happy
with silence on our side
there is no part for it in here
it is gone with the light

and so the stripes are now drifting
under the vehicles floor
one glance taken back
one straight ahead

enormous roads between them
digging through the wastelands
you are rolling going faster
faster to the north

you see them waving from the rooftops
the party is on
your neck is bending backwards
your smile is so strong
