Track Name: All The Poets Are Dead
I was dead since the noon
Boatman'll take me away
Fragile words I said
Like monks in a fray

The station agent sleeps
He cannot explain
How the images slip
How to escape from the pain

All the poets, all the poets, all the poets are dead
We were born into this house with a crack in our heads
All the poets, all the poets, all the poets are dead
Leave your tongue on our discretion and we'll heal all your dreads

I was fading away
I was feeling confused
My ordinary days
Leisured and misused

I've followed the trail
No escape from the line
Deadheads grab by the car
I can hear their whine

All the poets, all the poets, all the poets are dead
We were born into this house with a crack in our heads
All the poets, all the poets, all the poets are dead
Leave your tongue on our discretion and we'll heal all your dreads

Cities tall as god
People short as graves
We're coming with the wind
And we'll leave with the waves

All the poets, all the poets, all the poets are dead
Now I have one more try just to see you pretend
All the poets, all the poets, all the poets are dead
Round and round just like flies on a spider's web

All the poets, all the poets, all the poets are dead
We were born into this house with a crack in our heads
All the poets, all the poets, all the poets are dead
Leave your tongue on our discretion and we'll heal all your dreads
Track Name: Small Talk With The Devil
devil, devil do you know my name?
the one-eye tide and this bitter taste
you have some class, you have your price
but we are dots on the same dice

devil, devil, are you feeling alone
standing by the quiet of the telephone
i heard your sob, i saw your tear
and now i know that i'm not so weird

devil, devil, all these tricky words
are some kind of joke just to make some friends
i'm just the wall, you 're just the crash
and we all are believers of this bloody dust

devil, devil, raise your hand
this beautiful chant will have an end
you cross the line, you had your time
but after all what you got was mine

devil, devil, do you really care?
how well you did it or play it fair
the horror, the horror, was all we found
spinning our heads round and round

mine, oh mine was your human mask
all the weepy questions you dare to ask
the dark, the god, were all the same
devil, devil, do you know my name?
Track Name: Flesh Police
Don’t take me home
Don’t take me home tonight
Spread your wings and fly
Fly away

Don’t take me home
Leave me in the rain
Leave me alone
Stay away

Sit next to us, come and watch the stars
Track Name: My Closest Enemies
Another
Hero for consumption
Director
Is yelling "Action"
The crowd
Strips its inaction
But someone left behind

You, always you

Cause you
Never felt this way
You always walk away
You never raise your hand

Another
Day to start a fight
Cosmonauts
Dream their flight
Someone goes
Gentle
Into that good night

You, always you

Cause you
Never felt this way
You always walk away
You never raise your hand
Track Name: Manifesto Of An Ordinary Man
Sleepless on the coast
I choose to have no fear
Lovers on the road
Poke their hearts with spears
Trains full of lust
Betrayed jump the trail
Apartments full of dust
Waiting for a wave

And
Hero of the day
Is walking in the park
Playing with the water
Mirroring his eyes
Hero of the day
Is kissing his wife
Flying over cities
As celebrating life

The border is just a line
A reason to hate me
Nothing was ever mine
Not even this pale skin
A dreamer on the roof
trying to steal the stars
I call him brother
You can call him smug

Did you hear the wind?
It's whispering your name
Satisfy your thirst
With the water of the rain
Come on, let's take a walk
I cannot wait, I can't pretend
But still we got the time
To call each other "friend"

But
Hero of the day
Is playing with his child
Reading to him poems
With his broken tongue
Hero of the day
Is kissing his wife
Flying over cities
As celebrating life

And
Hero of the day
Is walking in the park
Playing with the water
Mirroring his eyes
Hero of the day
Is kissing his wife
Flying over cities
As celebrating life
Track Name: Made Of Glass
I was standing by the river
In the water gold and silver
If I touch you I will hurt you
If I don’t, I will regret it
Once again
The same mistakes

I was looking for the perfect
For the one, for the endless
But I’m just a weeny clown
Another shadow in this town
“Show me a joke”
The mirror said

But you
When I fall
You lift me, you show me the road
But you
When I stop
You push me, you pull me to go

I was waiting for the snowfall
With a torn coat that smells awful
Did I mention that I like you?
Did you know that I’ll love you
-please don’t laugh-
Until love dies

But you
When I fall
You lift me, you show me the road
But you
When I stop
You push me, you pull me to go
Track Name: A Leap Of Faith
I believe that life will go on
No matter if I’m right or if I’m wrong
There’s a road that lead us to the world
And I’m not just another pawn

I believe that time will tell the truth
That if you want it you never lose your youth
There’s a place that you don’t have to hide
And beauty dies only when it wants to die

I’m so glad that I found you

I believe that the dreamers will prevail
Just to invent another fairy tale
Every man and woman are like gods
And no temple can jail their love

I believe that everyone‘s alone
But when you find someone, you find a home
Hey poet, come and take my hand
I believe that this is not the end

I’m so glad that I found you
Track Name: Hate Song
I'm the one who killed John
And the man who killed King
I'm the Columbine boys
And their broken wings
I'm the echo of Beslan
A black widow's truth
And I will kill you, I will kill you
Whatever you do

Run away from my door
Better watch out for signs
You have the skin of worms
I have a blade for your kind
I'm the chosen of God
And I don't want to play
So I will kill you, I will kill you
Whatever you say

I have so many names
I wasn't born in one place
You can call me Franco
But expect no grace
Chile, Russia or Greece
I'm nobody's fool
And I will kill you, I will kill you
Whatever you do

I have worn the white hood
I took away Joey's babe
I've set crosses on fire
I have no time to wait
I held the black stone
Sinful now you'll pay
And I will kill you, I will kill you
Whatever you say

I'm the ghost of this world
My face is always your face
My words are your words
About religion and race
Don't wash up your hands
I know that you knew
So I will kill you, I will kill you
Whatever you do



All these beautiful words
I said ‘em again and again
“Rebellion”, “Freedom”, “Resist”
“You’ve got to break your chain”
I’m an excellent liar
The only color is gray
And I will kill you, I will kill you
Whatever you say

I’m part of the crowd
I’m a train of hate
I don’t have any doubt
I don’t care to explain
I build bridges of lies
I’m always ready to shoot
And I will kill you, I will kill you
Whatever you do
Track Name: This Is The Filth
This is the hate and this is the love
All I ever wanted and none of the above
The infinite road these fuckin’ walls
This is the hate and this is the love

This is my fire and this is your ice
How could I sleep when one million eyes
Staring at me like blind mice
This is my fire and this is your ice

This is my truth and this is your lie
You told me I got wings but I cannot fly
Buried by the earth I wish you were right
This is my truth and this is your lie
Track Name: Killing innocence
Where have you been my blue-eyed son?
When I was cracked by a million tongues
When I was thirsty, all alone
A thousand miles away from home

Where have you been my sweetest love?
Someone left a message on the door
“Don’t leave this house without a gun”
Where have you been my blue-eyed son?


Where have you been my dearest friend?
Into the night I asked your hand
The silent ocean spread its waves
For all the divers find a grave

Where have you been my lovely queen?
Planets and stars die on your skin
This rotten world comes to an end
Where have you been my dearest friend?
Track Name: Shine
Wake
I have a confession to make
From all the lights I choose grey
No one can save me from this
Why
Please don’t ask me this time
I’m not a father tonight
I’m just bullets and guns

Shine
I want to tell you it’s all right
I want to remember your smile
But even if things could be right
I was wrong, I was blind

Sleep
We own our deepest dreams
I can’t ask you to forgive
Someone who’s out of faith
Now
Eternity smiles like a clown
I can not hear any sound
There is no heaven of hell

Shine
I want to tell you it’s all right
I want to remember your smile
But even if things could be right
I was wrong, I was blind
Track Name: The Road Less Travelled
I want you to know that
I’m not coming back
My life was a silent
Walk through the stars

I want you to wake up
And take the wild road
Leave your tracks on the highway
And find what the storm bodes

A flash before my eyes
Let me see what I’ve to see
I’m not the person that
Once I have dreamed to be
What happened or what’s the point
All have drowned in the sea
I never realized what I’ve done

I want u to save me
I can’t do it by myself
This boat needs two hearts now
To sail above this wave
Track Name: A Man Named Freedom
I know your face, your heart, your fears
But I can’t wait to see your move
So I’ll take your hand
We will rise and then
All the comets will seem like trains

I know you count, you add, you subtract
Thought your fingers were made for math
But when look at the stars
The light explodes in your arms
And you become the boy you were once

I feel alone, marooned, so small
But I can see my writing on the wall
It says “when you feel enslaved
Grab a bird from its tail
And fly away, it’s time to escape

I saw the king, his throne and his crown
He orders things but none was around
The other said “look at me,
I got the beauty on my skin”
But all I saw was a man and his sins

Now the lights went out as I see
And that’s something I can really forgive
In the dark there are no lines
No borders, no crimes
And that’s place that I want to live in

I got my youth, my feet and my dreams
And I don’t care if in this world I don’t fit
I’ve got invisible wings
I was made from this thing
That the loveless and fascists can’t see
