Track Name: Pretty Ugly
Pretty ugly
Goes on walking
When someone calls for help
Pretty ugly

Pretty ugly
Cheating eyes
Staring at your wife’s best friend
Pretty ugly

So I think I can ignore
People on my wall
mirrors to my soul

pretty ugly
to hate your folks
when they’ve tried their most
pretty ugly

cut-in line
thinking of my precious time
pretty ugly
Track Name: Lamb
Up in the morning
Capture your dream
Do it it’s for free

Lambs in the morning
Jumping your eyes
won’t believe it’s real

Look in the mirror
all I can see
lamb eyes stare at me

Need to prepare
Put my wolf mask
Or i’ll get eaten easily

Who lives in me?

I hope that i’m good
I'm really trying
as much as i can be
But sometimes it seems
the bad and the mean
have more affect then you and me

The lambs gettin eaten
by the big wolves
They running loose and free
Every minute another naive thought
Getting shattered quietly


In every second 4 disappears
Somebody put them into his sleevs
They won’t return
Victims of greed
Cruel around us
With naked fists

You see the devil playing his cards
And you jump up before
He’ll stricke
You’ll get your chance
To sign up a pact
And be he wolf
That’s killing
Track Name: Alone
All the mistakes
Written in the sky
They are about
To fall
On your head
Don’t look up

You’re leaving alone alone alone alone
You’re leaving alone alone alone alone and scared

Your bag’s full of guilt
It’s heavy and wet
Your suitcase
Filled with stones and bricks
You can’t bear the weight

You’re leaving alone alone alone alone
You’re leaving alone alone alone alone and scared

Your head
Fish swimming in no direction
Water from your ears
Running to the ocean
You can’t hear there’s nothing but yourself

You’re leaving alone alone alone alone
You’re leaving alone alone alone alone and scared
Track Name: Somewhere
There must be somewhere out there
between the floor and the ceiling
Or maybe inside the water
Or under the leaking

There must be somewhere out of here
I just can’t take it any longer
Somewhere I can be in peace

There must be somewhere out there
A place of daring feelings
Waiting to uncover and reveal your being
Track Name: Naked
Oh my lord
I’m so physical
these days

Oh my lord
the sun just melts
into my brain

And i’m getting naked
i don’t care if you stare
I’m getting naked
it’s the only way i can

Oh my lord
i just have to or i’ll faint
Oh my lord
all i think is get undressed

And i’m getting naked
i don’t care if you stare
I’m getting naked
it’s the only way i can

Sometimes i feel like
peeling my skin off
Sometimes i feel
this is the last breath i’ll take
the sun is too much
Track Name: Deja vu
Don’t walk away from everything you say
If you want to live your life it’s anywhere
I’m not this certain kind of woman
That might have been for you

Don’t tell me all these words
It’s too much for me
If there’s a place to be
I’m not that little girl you see
All this is just a deja vu

I’m not a female figure with a head of flowers
I’m not a painting you put on a wall

So if you want to go
Go ahead and be
I believe in you far away from me
I’m not this certain kind of woman
That might have been for you

I’m not a female figure with head of flowers
I’m not a picture you put on a wall

I’m not a picture..
Track Name: Hardest pleasure
All the words just melt away
Into a big lake. It’s insane
All my actions organised
To satisfy your basic rights

You’re the hardest pleasure
I’ve ever known
You’re the strongest emotion
I’ve ever felt before

Never mind what people say
It’s really hard to put away
All your plans and all your needs
To satisfy
Your precious gift

All this songs i sing to you
Maybe someday you’ll sing too

You’re the hardest pleasure
I’ve ever known
You’re the strongest emotion
I’ve ever felt before
Track Name: Courage
There’s a place very far away
Stand still it all comes your way
Courage is not to run a way
Courage is to stay

From the top floor
Everything seems a bit to slow
From the top floor
The ceiling is too low
Courage is not to run a way
Courage is to stay

Take a day off
Be quiet - just stare at the walls
Imagine they are just papers for your thoughts
Courage is not to runaway
Courage is to stay


Your mind is a forest
Hear the cracking voices
It’s not noise
It’s your doubts


From the top floor
Everything seems a bit to slow
From the top floor
The ceiling is too low
Courage is not to run a way
Courage is to stay

Courage is not to run a way
Courage is to stay
Track Name: Notice
Have you ever noticed
People in the booth
That serve you
on your way

Their hair is white
Their skin is grey
Sitting in the parking lott
Counting minutes every day


You probably don’t
You probably won’t


Have you ever noticed
The one that cleaned
After you today

Have you ever noticed
Her deep eyes and the sweat
Dripping on her face

You probably don’t
You probably won’t

They’re invisible people


Have you ever noticed
That you prefer
To look away

They’re all around you
“slaves” beside you
and you dare to complain

They’re invisible people
Track Name: Isn't it funny
Isn’t it funny?
That life’s been so rough
The train left the stop
That rain just won’t stop
Falling down on me

Isn’t it funny?
My empty cup is thrown
Broken on the floor
That rain just won’t stop
Falling down on me

If there’s a place
Maybe not far
Where people are not afraid
to lose so much

If there’s a place
Maybe on Mars
Where people give and share
Just being

Isn’t it funny?
That love’s getting cold
Fairy tales seem old
Tears just won’t stop
Falling down on me


Isn’t it funny?
That truth’s been ignored
Right is just a word
This pay off won’t stop
Falling down on me
Track Name: So
So it’s written on the wall
You know it doesn’t hurt to call
Don’t treat me like you did before
Don’t treat me like we never were

You know it’s war
To leave me again
You need me to know you’re human after all
Track Name: Leftovers
All and over
or is it running to the sea?

memories like peeling skin

all and over
all these faces i will miss

skeletons inside the trees
revival of the wick and sick are free

all and over
folding cases- reminisce

the song that always stuck in me

happy ever after
