Track Name: Speaking thru the others
Speaking thru the others

Eyes of a child, legs of a man
My father’s eyes my mother’s chest,
The clumsiness of an innocent passer-by.

Eyes of a witness, legs in the sand
My tongue is mutilated and
My forehead is burning tonight as we talk.

Listen to my story, there’s no faith, no glory.
Just what turns a man blind.
Raise from the undercover, speaking thru the others,
Speaking thru the others
Flies worldwide like the biggest lie, speaking thru the others.

Eyes of a sinner, legs of a saint
Follow the pattern, feel the pain
My best friend says it’s not too late to believe.

Listen to my story, there’s no faith, no glory.
Just what turns a man blind.
Raise from the undercover, speaking thru the others,
Speaking thru the others
Flies worldwide like the biggest lie, speaking thru the others.
Track Name: All is gone.
All is gone

We all carry on our shoulders
all the weight from our past
some may say it's light and easy
some say it's heavy and dark

All the summers that we spent
changing the world every night
all the winters came up with
the same old sense of surprise

If all is gone, then I’ll be waiting
for the sunset at the side of the highway
we all frame the best selection
from the pictures in our heads

For an instance I’m recalling
all those bitter hollow days
we're trapped in peaks and valleys
Ii guess that's just how it is

If all is gone, I’ll be waiting

Uncoated words, put it this way:
there's no path to happiness
some may say happiness is the way

easy to say, hard to believe
as further as my eyes can see
but I’ll be waiting

if all is gone, then I’ll be waiting
Track Name: Fools
Fools


We have found it. We have found the place where we belong
Maybe it’s not. Maybe it’s not exactly as we thought.
In the alleys. In the alleys where we drink and fuck.
In the corners, where the truth is written with our blood.
With our own blood.

I swear that we are fully aware.
We won’t turn away this time
We won’t play the fool with our lives.

Individual means collective imaginary.
Controversial, we forgot the meaning of all of this.
All of this.

I swear that we are fully aware.
We won’t turn away this time
We won’t play the fool with our lives.

Hold your breath, think ahead.
I don’t care how old you were
When Nirvana’s Nevermind
Changed the way the media blew our minds.
Clap your hands, drink the glass,
Do you think you stopped the war?
How blank is your book?
How blank is your book now?

I swear that we are fully aware.
We won’t turn away this time
We won’t play the fool with our lives.
Track Name: Red Moon
Red Moon

Red moon is alerting me there’s fire on the mountain
The ashes come to town, the houses hide behind the big pink could
Help me save the animals from burning
The act has just begun, the curtains open up in fire.

Because we’re howling, howling, howling until dawn
Howling, howling don’t let your feeling show.

Red moon is alerting me there’s fire in the forest
The town is sinking here, beneath a sea of smoke and mist.
Help me save the children in their houses,
The vultures fly around and wait for their final turn.

Howling, howling, howling until dawn
Howling, howling don’t let our demons out
Howling, howling, howling till it’s gone
Howling, howling, don’t let our feeling show.

Can you see the vultures over me?

And the rain saved me this time
And the rain saved me this time
But I'm blind.

Howling, howling, howling until dawn
Howling, howling just let our demons out
Howling, howling, howling till it’s gone
Howling, howling, don’t let our feeling show.
Track Name: Kiss me when I'm dead
Kiss me when I'm dead

If I say my name would that change the story
I'm just another foreigner working in your country
Got my nest of love in a distant land
I sit next to you in the subway

All the faces are faded and the looks are empty
Through books, ipods and free newspapers
In the land of wolves I’m the lonesome lamb
I walk among the crowd searching for my place

I'm the one without name
throw a flower to my grave
you can put your arms around me
you can kiss me when i'm dead.

History is wise and the sky is falling
now I build your house, now i clean your country

In the land of wolves I'm the lonesome lamb
Yesterday you called it slavery

I'm the one without name
throw a flower to my grave
you can put your arms around me
you can kiss me when i'm dead.

Say something
there should be some hope somewhere.
Track Name: Me too
Me Too

I could die for your sins
and my heart is confined
and your mercy is my cage

Everything is okay
I'll assume my position
if you kiss me again

Do never feel sorry
I don't look what I am

I'm the innocent
and my body is loose
I live in no man's land
I'm a proof to you
Have you ever felt like you're in full bloom?
Sorry, but me too.

Between love and barriers
there is room for the angels
that cripple with fear

We both want to believe
we're surrounded by judges
that don't know a thing.

Do never feel sorry
I don't look what I am

I'm the innocent
and my body is loose
I live in no man's land
I'm a proof to you
Have you ever felt like you're in full bloom?
Sorry, but me too.

You can't treat me like fool.
Track Name: Dust
Dust

Because these lines are dead before they are born
Because I don’t walk the way of the world
Brother, could you hold my cross?

Because my knowledge is nailed to the wall,
I'm watching life pass from my bedroom floor
Sister would you hold my cross?

And the dust upon my name won’t let you shine.

Just when the war drums were hammering my head
Thousand of white bright pigeons are released
Dropping olive branches on me

The final curtain will never be raised,
Because my bones will be seed for the rain.
I will bloom inside your head

And the dust upon my name won’t let you shine.

Show me just one reason not to let you down again,
I am with my people, from the ashes is my rebirth.

And the dust upon my name won’t let you shine.
Track Name: Back to back
Back to Back


You're alarmed, you're afraid
the storm is coming fast
I have to leave you there
in your ground, where you stand.
You want me back to back
I'm sorry I had to escape.
You'll have a to fight in this alone,
even if it's a bloodbath
That's not my struggle any more,
but thanks for considering.

I know it's not easy
you will let it go.

In the fields of disgrace
only the wounded dogs howl for happiness.
Now you bark, now you pray,
you had it in your hands but
it just slipped away.
The more you give the more you get
you know that hate breeds hate
You know your chance will have to wait
you better get ready.

I know it's not easy
you will let it go.

Give up you don't have a chance
she's got the facts, she's got all the experience

I know it's not easy
you will let it go
Track Name: Nothing but lights
Nothing but lights

All the sailors leave the port
and the lighthouse guides their ships
I just want to take my part
from that treasure under seas.

And if magic comes around
everyone will have his piece
then I’ll pick up my guitar
and let all the sailors sing.

And we'll look up to the stars
and we'll read our destiny
and we're lucky to understand
we're nothing but lights
waiting to be seen.

And I'm sinking here tonight
with the greatest company
I am touching with my hands
what's been buried through the years.

And we'll look up to the stars
and we'll read our destiny
and we're lucky to understand
we're nothing but lights
waiting to be seen.
Track Name: Sur le chemin
Sur le chemin

Sur, sur le chemin
Je trouve des têtes, des bras
Sur, sur le chemin
Des mères et des enfants
Et qui leur dira que la guerre est finie
Et qui leur dira : « bon courage dans la vie »
Et qu’ils souriront en regardant les étoiles
La clé du futur elles la portent dans leur bras
La clé du futur elles la portent dans leur bras

Sur, sur le chemin
Je ne trouve que des savants
Sur, sur le chemin
J’arrête pour un instant.
Ils parlent du monde, de la science et d’amour
Ils m’assurent toujours qu’ils connaissent la formule
Je suis fatigué d’écouter ses histoires
La clé du futur je la porte dans mes mains
La clé du futur je la porte dans mes mains
Track Name: Grid
Grid

Hold back
Prevent yourself from the monster
Where is
The innocence we preached
Lay down
And tell me what you think of me
Don’t laugh
And kick me out from here.

Because the gods that I see
Are damned and dismissed
I never fit in the mould
A thorn in my side
A grid in my mind
That’s all I need for the road.

Take me
Where the sun never sets
Save me
While you can hold me strong
Wave me
Like a flag in case of danger
Sit back and wait behind the door.

Because the gods that I see
Are damned and dismissed
I never fit in the mould
A thorn in my side
A grid in my mind
That’s all I need for the road.

Pinch my arm
Pinch again
Darkness is a summer storm and it has gone away

Because the gods that I see
Are damned and dismissed
I never fit in the mould
A thorn in my side
A grid in my mind
That’s all I need for the road
Track Name: Tied hands
Tied Hands

I can barely say a thing
It's in these moments when I freeze
and think will we ever meet again?

In the house were I was born
there's no furniture at all
I stand in the middle of the room
thinking of my foolish youth.

Ah, my hands are tied
tonight.

Listened to the same old songs
once they used to turn me on
I guess I'm not shivering again
on my road to forgiveness.

Ah, my hands are tied, I can’t decide.
My hands are tied tonight.

I burned my tunic in a campfire in the mount of olives
Never said this was my last act, and I'm not worried
How could I take out your finger from my bleeding sore?

Ah, my hands are tied, I can’t decide.
No end in sight, my hands are tied tonight.
