Track Name: Footprints
Sometimes I wish for mighty fins so I could swim all day
Some nights I dream of robin's wings so I could fly over the trees
Sometimes I'd like to swap my body so I could jump from leave to leave
But most of the time I'm just sitting here to listen to the radio

I close my eyes and think of what I could have been
I could have been a lucky man, your tree to climb upon when your flood arrives

Time falls from the sky as if it were rain, every drop a second
But the clouds get smaller every day, every day I get older
I need a light that shines, I need someone to fill my heart with love and pride
And braverie, I need someone to turn the time for me
My footprints in the sand I want to stand on my own feet but thats a dream
My footprints in the sand I want to stand on my own feet but thats a dream
My footprints in the sand I want to stand, I want to stand

While the crowd is getting faster I approach to final stop
While they use to talk for hours I hold on to say shut up
It’s a waste of time you’re thinking about the fragment of your life
The rising lights you push aside
Track Name: End of the Sea
Breathless man, tell me your wishes
What's your plan, and now where is the difference?

Timeless past, show me your faces
I want to breathe the glance of your stories
So I can fear the forest and the End of the Sea

Reason freezes my dreams
Time is nothing I need

Truth can be found in a cold place like this
Truth is no science, it is more like a hug in the dark
So don't you waste your breathe on these lies

Reason freezes my dreams
Time is nothing I need
There's a fire on the field & it's burning the trees
Just because I'm here doesn't mean I'm free

Truth can be found in a cold place like this
Truth is no science, it is more like a hug in the dark
So don't you waste your breathe on these lies
Track Name: Self-made Sky
Lift me up to my self-made sky
To get a better sight of what I’m looking for
Above it all it seems I’m lost
I'm wading through the ashes of what I call

Home – Awake – Come on!
Try to get out of this
Don’t drown your mind
In living your routine

I’m searching
For soul that breathes
A fever to live with
And a place to be free

I’m searching
For someone to believe in
A life worth living
And a melody to sing

Proudly – Come on!
Track Name: Lucky Someday
I saw you dancing alone in the dark
It felt like running, like sparks I don’t understand
I watched you counting leaves that were falling like light in the dawn
When I look right inside myself I try to find a world

Dust – Soul – Shadow – Close to nothing at all
Lost – Sunk – Unheared – Whats your last word
Fast and easy – Wheres your true love?
Brave and sincere – But wheres your true love?

I take my doubts now – love and let go
Words won’t hold me back
Will you follow unknown traces?
Maybe we won’t get back to the start

Whats about my plans? I think we will be lucky someday
Without you theres nothing left , so wont you stay in my arms
I’ll try to widen my sight for you – my life yor you, for your love and your truth
Don’t forget the warmth we feel, how safe we are in here

Take your doubts now – love and let got
Theres no ending that is worth it
All walls fall soon – All words fade
Track Name: Loss Division
Seven thoughts are running through my head
The first is a lie and the second’s a mess
So I blow all the others away
With a deep deep breath from the morning’s chest

Six thieves are waiting for help
Who really wants to close the first cell?
They are searching themselves
An identity behind a wall of steel

Five foxes in the moonlight
Looking for a place to rest
What an endless beauty to protect
But we keep burning trees instead

Let’s share this moment -
Together we are free and we can shine
I hope this will last forever
I hope this will last forever

Four eyes staring out the window
Waiting for the war to be stopped
They say: “You can’t get lucky when you feel no pain
And love wouldn’t feel like this without hate”

Three seconds of joy division
Just a little moment caught from the air
I do believe it when you say that you came here to stay

Let’s share this moment
Together we are free and we can shine
I hope this will last forever
I hope this will last forever
Track Name: *
Said the waves:
"This doesn't end as it goes.
See: I formed the shore & away I roll."
Said the wind:
"Don't bother me leaving you touched,
giving you shivers of spring,
still never promising much."
Said the fox:
"This place might give good shelter
as winter is up the hill.
Hold on to the thought of good will
to be sure to be free to decide
to hold on to each other
any time we feel it's right."

Grow the pines now, grow the moss,
even the crack in the old wall.
Race now, heart, as it's starting all over
&what is lost let go, let fall.
Grow the rainclouds from the sky,
grow the stones from the river's bank,
grow that beating in my head,
grow that whispering in my chest.
Through the meadows, through the woods,
claiming shelter from the rain,
like a fast train car towards the tunnel
what seems to vanish shall remain.

The last place in this world
I would want to be trapped in
is that hole someone dug
by just asking for too much.
&the last of the lists you hold
Iwould want to find my name placed on
is the one telling you things to do.
