Track Name: Goodwill
I'm a ghost

An invisible listener

Playing a ficticious poker game

Shuffling cards for the rest

Never getting an ace in my hand



My father said

Sit down and listen

My son you will get

The good that you've given

'Cause goodwill can heal

A soul that's been lost for long

Showing it's new path.



I'm the one

That's been killing your nightmares

I'm a song to help you sleep at night

Pillow under your knees

When you're praying to get through the day



But father, where is

The price that you told me

That I'd get if I

Devoted to others?

I wanna be loved.

True love, not compassion coming out of somebody's eyes



But miracles won't pay the price to light up my embers

Or stop the car of crashing against the wall.



I am gone

With my absence unnoticed

Life goes on and no one gives a fuck

Yeah, "he was a good kid"

What my epitaph reads of my time





But father, you said

Take care of your siblings

'Cause life is about becoming, not being

Till death do us part

Good actions will bring good luck

I've been a good boy, where the fuck is mine?



But miracles won't pay the price to light up my embers

Or stop the car of crashing against the wall.

We're still on time just tell me now you'll hold me forever

It's in your hands the power to save my soul. The power to save your soul. The power to save us.



We never had the time

To give a little more

The power of his light

Was brighter than the sun

We never saw the end

How his light was turning off



But miracles won't pay the price to light up my embers

Or stop the car of crashing against the wall.

We're still on time just tell me now you'll hold me forever

It's in your hands the power to save a soul.
Track Name: Idols
Silence speaks louder than sound

For the ones who want to listen

And reason speaks louder than faith

All around its dominion





Silhouettes hide in the dark

In the alleys of subconscious

Tracking our desires down

Threatening powerless gods we create



I know I always say I can handle the weight

But my bare hands are about to break

So please help me out to burn the line between heaven and hell

And arise a new born glare

To cool off my inner fray





Rest while we let the world come to an end

In a warfare of faith

Where people choke in idols hands

Oblivion is chasing our days





Vigorous talents in waste

Due to a lack of motivation

A lousy performance in haste

With a viper director

Who carve us in modeling clay

In his image and his likeness

Engulfing potential with faith

A gargantuan real life puppet show



Killing in the name of a fake puppeteer

For a promised pipe-dream where

All of our pain will fade away

And our souls will submerge in a joy that never ends

You're just honoring a cause built with agony and blood

A mad man's dream you chase

A gold-plated pantomime sold to our heads

We create what we believe

In a strife of evil creeds

I want it to disappear



Why do you follow archetypes that are nothing but cheap ornaments?
Track Name: Coming Incomplete
We run just to be number one

As we chase the lure

In a greyhound track

At the end, there's a pit

I will fall in it if I don't quit



We fight for a bit of the pie

Brandishing our forks

Waving with our knifes

Here's a toast to your meal

I'm not hungry for that's what I think.





Incomplete

What you want's not what I need

I am not the prodigal son of the breed

If there's something in the rain that

Makes me feel I can't contain my inner child

That's the place where I'll will succeed



One white dove is set free to fly

For the fallen dreams

That we never tied

To the mast of our ships

'Cause we were taught that we had to acquit



And walk with the rest of the pack

Playing the same roles in supporting cast

In a film of your life

You're supposed to be the star





Well I'm back with scars to show

I've been waiting for so long

Tried so hard to play my part in your caprice.



Coming incomplete

Coming incomplete

But I'll get square tonight.
Track Name: Burning in Love
Friday night the city raves

Saw you standing on the distance

Catched your smile, told to myself

That i'd never really have a chance

Electricity in your stare

I can't activate my forcefield

Kryptonite release my head

I'm bound by law to fly away



But I'm down for a joyride

Yeah I'm down for you to take me to the dark

Side of what misguides a faithful pride



Trucker cap and long blond hair

Shinning brighter than the moonlight

Fill my lungs with brand new air

While The Flowers of Evil I write

Like a new born Baudelaire

But not dwelling on my failures

Or upon things that I can't change

Former master, living like a slave



Perverted by an eyelash

I guess that's where all of my principals collide

playing heads or tails to cross the line



I'm burning in love again

sometimes life can build a stair

to climb to the stars

in plastic skies

I'm burning in love again



Put my values in a plane

That will crash into the ocean

I am in the jaws of death

Playing for the reds in a roulette

Where i've thrown a fixed ball

I'm not sure of what I want now

'cause If I win there's double price

And If I lose I'm leaving as I came



Bargaining on a fire truck

To quench the flames, I think I'm going way too far

With this sickest game of playful brides

Out for the day, in for the night.
Track Name: Thick and Thin
Well you can ask yourself the same old question but

The answer is still the same

And you can run across the same old sidewalks again

You'll reach the same old place

And you'll be burning out, burning out

struggling through the day

burning out, fade away

And you''l be burning out, burning out

Till you take a turn

Burning out, fade away.



It's on, tonight we'll bring it up again

It's on, tonight we'll bring it up again



Even when you think you're done

You can stand another round

I will find a way to pick you off the ground

When your dreams are far way gone

I'll go find 'em where they are

'cause my friend you know your limit is the sky



You know they say that if you want the rainbow,

You gotta put up the rain

And if there's water in your yard remember my friend

That it will drain away

Through thick and thin I'll walk with you

I'll make sure that you're okay

I'm always by your side

Because it's never too late to be what you might have been

Just give it one more try
Track Name: You Are Music
It's been a while to find the words to say this through

It's funny how some things turned out to be with you

We're like two little kids and we play hide and seek

But the further we run, is the closer we feel

The game is on, we're both in this





And so I tried to close the door and not see you

But then I listen to the symphony that you

Create with your lips when they fall on my skin

When the look in your eyes

Makes me babble a bit



Now I can say it loud and clear

I make my best when you're right here



You are music, I can feel your beat inside my chest

You are music, You're the soundtrack that's inside my head

Everywhere I go, everything I see

You're the music that goes with me.



Aand way too many times before I beseeched you

I tried to put my forces in retreat but you

Brought me down to my knees

With your swords and your spears

Tracked me down in the air,

In the mountains and sea



I just can't run away from here

You catches me in your melody





In for a dollar, in for a dime

You know there's something we can't deny. No, we can't
Track Name: Emerald Oceans
I want to go back
To the day that I met you
Start once again
You catching my glance
And timidly smile back to me



I’m shaking right here
I swallow my fears and I go were you are

With nothing to say
But somehow I know that’s a start



The start of a quest

That’s leading to nowhere
But nowhere is fine if you’re there
The road’ll be tough

But I know it’s worth the try
When I think that You'll be waiting for me in the end



The morning will come
To start a new day
To take all our doubts and our fears far away

There’s clues in your eyes

And feelings that stray
But I’ll keep you dry, dry from your rain

When lost in your emerald oceans I pray
All of your swells won’t wash away
Be sure I won’t let those colourful waves of you turn to grey



I feel it again
Well you are with someone
I’m not holding back


As days come and go
We know something’s growing between us



A fracture, an end
A start and a comeback
We bend but not break


This thing between us
We’re the only ones that understand



It’s hard to keep on
When you’re everchanging
I’m sorry for the times I screwed up
But trust me ‘cause I’m
Just not giving up
You’re all that I want
I won’t let you down this time
Track Name: Perspective
The time that we waste

Runs like water down the drain

It's sad but it's true

If only I could

Go back and try my best to make a difference





But chance comes and flies away

We'll never regret

What we've done so far

But learn to see our lives with some perspective



To trace the lines differently



Perspective to trace the lines differently



Worth is not wealth

Wealth is not need

Time is something we can't supersede

With diamonds or gold

'Cause we're constantly looking for more

It's never enough

In a plain white canvas we

Will create our own masterpiece

With colorful souls that

We find in the path that we walk

We find in the path that we walk



We're born innocent

We're inside a lake of sins

No life vest aboard

No rudder to avoid the iceberg and turn to a new direction

It has never been our fault

We never got other choice but to dive into the deep

And swim counter current to walk on the reef



Worth is not wealth

Wealth is not need

Time is something we can't supersede

With diamonds or gold

'Cause we're constantly looking for more

It's never enough

In a plain white canvas we

Will create our own masterpiece

With colorful souls that

We find in the path that we walk

We find in the path that we walk



Walk below the rain

We row in the dark

Walk below the rain

We follow the path
Track Name: Direct the Wind
Grinded against my will

Like the corn in a mill

I forgot how was it like to be

Torn apart by your lies

Always been a good guy

It's my fault, I knew better than this.



Shame on me, how could I nurse a hope

In your kingdom I was the king?

Now I see, I'm wide awake, you mean nothing to me



And I won't let the same mistakes of the past lead my way

'Cause i can't direct the wind, but i can adjust the sails.



Treason lips

The sooner you get this right, you will beg on your knees

Life compels a bitch like you to realize

You'll be alone forever and a day



Too many times before

Put my submarine off-shore

Forcing me to fight a giant squid

I came back again, of course

I always deceived my thoughts

Told everyone you were a good girl

And if you try to carry on with this charade, this unfair liaison

I am sure that I just won't



Yeah I won't let the same mistakes of the lead my way

'Cause I can't direct the wind, but I can adjust the sails



Treason lips

The sooner you get this right, you will beg on your knees

Life compels a bitch like you to realize

That you're better off dead

Test my will

Deep below every word that you say there's a lie

That I won't take

'Cause you're full of bullshit and you're better off dead





You know, no one is gonna be by your side

When your stories get known far and wide

And you'll find yourself between the devil and the deep.



You're nothing but trouble.
Track Name: Comfort in your Halo
I’ve got a secret

And it burns in the back of my head

Well, you built me up, then you tore me down

I’m working my way up again

For the last six months
I’ve been wondering why

How this even happened?

How we built our walls over rubble floors

They became rubble again.

'Cause you

You made me feel like I could

Hold the sun between my hands

And kept my dreams forever young

Lighting up the shadows over my way

You made me feel like I could

Hold the sun between my hands

And kept my dreams forever young

Lighting up the shadows over my way

‘Cause I found comfort in your halo



I’ve got a secret

And it burns in the back of my head

Well, you built me up, then you tore me down

I’m working my way up again

For the last six months
I’ve been wondering why

How this even happened?

How we built our walls over rubble floors

They became rubble again.

'Cause you

You made me feel like I could

Hold the sun between my hands

And kept my dreams forever young

Lighting up the shadows over my way

You made me feel like I could

Hold the sun between my hands

And kept my dreams forever young

Lighting up the shadows over my way





you made me feel like I could

hold the sun between my hands

you kept my dreams forever young

lighting up the shadows over my way

Well now your ghost will never leave

‘cause I found comfort in your halo



I’ve got a question

Did you think of all that we shared?

Didn’t it matter?

Now I feel that I've been used all these years

'Cause I gave you all and it’s gone to waste

And I curse that day that

You made me feel so different

And in my dreams I still call your name

They turn to nightmares in the end.



You made me feel like I could

Hold the sun between my hands

And kept my dreams forever young

Lighting up the shadows over my way

You made me feel like I could

Hold the sun between my hands

And kept my dreams forever young

Lighting up the shadows over my way

And now your ghost will never leave

‘Cause I found comfort in your halo





Closed the door
And you're gone away

Tried to hold you close

Though it was too late

With unspoken words

Nothing left to say

Nothing left to lose

I’ll go away



Closed the door

And you're gone away

Tried to hold you close

But it was too late

But I gave you all

And you threw me away

Do you know you were my universe?

And I’m scared I’ll never feel it again

Aut now I know that I will heal

As soon as I get my confidence back

And now your ghost will never leave

‘Cause I found comfort in your halo.
Track Name: It's Over
Coordinates come to me, help me find my latitude

'Cause I am lost without you here

In my compass there's no north

You used to be my pole star, yeah.



But you faded out, suddenly

Hid yourself behind the sun

Left my sky way incomplete

Reaching out for satellites

I gotta find a new way home.



All the nights I spent out wondering

Trusting all those words you never said

Holding promises for new tomorrows



Built your own throne in my sandbox

But somehow you got better games to play

Tell you what, I'm moving on, it's over now



Yeah, I'm moving on, It's over



Yeah, I'm moving on, it's over



Now tables turn, as you can see

I'm tired of feeling black and blue

Baby someday you'll regret

Everything you put me through

That I'm the one that got away



You may think I'll be lonely

But in fact I'm more alone when I'm with you

Than when I'm by myself
Track Name: New Homes
It's starting over again

We could've just let some time pass between the twilight

Of our tragedies

Running on the rooftops, letting our teardrops

Mourn the loss and bring us some relief

And never run away from here



Hold my breath

Fill your lungs

Ne the lifeguard in the lake of thorns

Take my hand

Bring control

Recreate the big bang in my soul



Come over again

I'm an addict without my dose

Why don't you come over?

And mash me like you do

Come put all my senses upside down

Throw me violently to the ground

Impregnate with your perfume all around



And here we're waiting for

The shape of things to come

Who'll be the one to throw

The first rock to the pond.





It's an ode to a friendship that began

As a way to lose control

OH NO! we're keeping scores

On and on we tried to leave this hole

In the end we turned to be

What we'd already foreseen

Though I don't regret it.



We're back in the game

And thank you for the playoff

You took out my sorrow

And evened my score

But the overtime's about to end

And one team will lose the game

It's been fun, I guess I'd play with you again.



We got rid of pain in velvet sheets

And we coped with severe uncertainty

A new home for a brand new life

A new knot for a tie
Track Name: Shelter and Home
It's been a long drive we've been sharing

Been a while since we've been caring for each other's lives

Our walls defy

We're breaking the boundaries of time



On the high tide

We sail in circles

On the low tide

We find treasures

That we set on fire just to dignify

How good is the friendship we have



Sometimes life can scare you still

I won't run when you're giving in

And when push comes to shove and you're feeling alone

I'll be right here to sing you this song



And when you're out in the cold, I'm your shelter and home

I'm right here, open arms, with this song

I'm right here, open arms, with this song
Track Name: Novus Coeptus
Ooooh so long and thanks for all

I'm not sure of this new thing

But I'm sure I don't want the old anymore



I wanna see the views from a cliff

I won't go back to my misery

You all thought I was happy, but only for a while



And through a phase of recovery

I saw that I don't belong in here

I don't belong in here

My hands are tied in here

And all I want is to be free





Free



All I want to be is miles above the sea



With the wind singing lullabies



As the echoes dance in harmony





Noooo, do you think this goes for you?

Well it does not (it does not)

This is for my chance to reunite with myself

'Cause It's been long since I planted the tree

I irrigated so carefully

'Cause it's about time to harvest the fruits of the future with brand new eyes



Why can't you understand that

We are born different



Always living in the same four walls

Just look outside to see the world

You gotta think outside the box

And cross the edge of horizon

We gotta move toward the things we want,

Not only away from the things we don't.
