Track Name: A Twitch
The way you turned out... it hints at something else than a mere struggle with imagination.
You can't account for your time,
you spend days and weeks and months among people from another universe.
The complete collapse of memory is at work
and covers all events with a thin veil of misunderstanding.
So come here and step towards the abyss with me.
Come take my arm and dream with me about falling.
Let us bury the past and lose ourselves in the haze of our limbs.

Now come with me and clutch the hands of your maker.
Track Name: Deathwish Men
Be here or don't
Among the screens and the words
The butterflies are not flying over
And the air that you breathe is not yours
Just watch the vapors
Coming from the ground

I ride
I rest at sundown
I drink the poisoned water
From the Urubamba river
And it doesn't matter where the stream takes me
As long as it's far
Far from you all
Track Name: Lead Me
If I walked down the street
What do you think I'd see?
In the stream of lies
About all that you can be

And if I walked on by
With the growing water at my heels
What do you think I'd see
If you spilled yourself all over me?

Lead me
Track Name: The Hole
You've come home
So don't you worry

It is just the hole
Between the body and the soul
And as the long long shadows fall
We stumble
Track Name: Hold On
One fine day by the river
Then the lights will go out
And the voices will fade

One fine night by the river
Then the dust and the fog
Will cover all

There and then
I'll have the plan
I can't devise
Hold on
Track Name: Common Sense
Suddenly the ceiling disappears
And the scary prospect of afterlife
Makes me squint at the hole at the bottom part of our window
With furniture and children’s books all around
A familiar figure reveals itself
At the foot of the hill that leads to my house
And up we go
On the sandy path lit with public illumination
You and me

My harshest friend
There were times I looked up to you
Wishing I was capable of the deeds you spoke of
Knowing that those figments of your imagination
Are the worlds I can never reach
And there were times when I hated you almost as I hated myself
But then again you were all I had

And so I too began dreaming
Of the mundane things not so far from me
Of drowning in somewhat different waters
Climbing somewhat different hills
And then I fooled myself that by the time this all came true
You'd be gone
Track Name: Joys of Love
And now I've seen
The paths divide
And with our backs against the wall
Unclench my hand
Point to the sky
And take the fall

The colours rage
Behind your eyes
And in the fire of your mind
I've seen the one
To guide my way
When I am blind

I want to hear
The silence breathing
Walk in the weeds
Forget the sound
Of people breeding
In desert fields

But there's no end
Or common ground
Still, I'll embrace the thoughts I fear
For some short time
For evermore
Just to be near
Track Name: Birds
Corrode my face
Woo me
Woo me
We'll feel like birds
released from the cage
And you'll sing me
about love
Rule me
Rule me

Have you been thinking about me?
Have you been dreaming about me?
Have you been talking about me?

Call out
Call out
To me
Track Name: Song from Beyond
There is no movement
The land lies
Begs for water
And I my friend am long forgotten
And still reaching for the stars
And the appropriate amount of human features
There are no movements
Just the tainted food
And the quiet pig legs
Running around town in circles

There are no solitary movements
Track Name: The Unreal City
On the streets lined with ashes and dirt
We walked and you offered me a hand
And then we were lost
In empty centers of bigger cities
Not noticing that the air had turned
When we sat on a bed that used to be yours
And stood beneath the heavy sun
At noon you rubbed your cheek against mine
And then we split
In the unreal city half a life from here
But now I know I'll see you soon
There's rumbling
In my chest
