Track Name: Honesty
Here
A piece of broken mirror
For you to reflect sun into my eyes.
I know that I am going to tear for sure but
I’ll smile at the same time
I will tell you a story that might even rhyme
And Sing you a song that has unknown melody
‘It comes from my own head’
You will hear me saying
And we’ll hold hands
Because
That is what you do
When you meet your guardian angel
Right?
Track Name: Incomprehensible
He asked sweetly: Soooo, I am a poem?
She replied: Nah, you, you’re a feelin’…

You

You are my lullaby
This air that I breathe in
That Something I’d mumble
You are the words in a smile
And it’s all

Incomprehensible

You are these melodies
Floating falling upwards
And when I hit the second cloud to the left
I squeak

You are these melodies

Floating
Falling upwards

As you rock me to my daydreams

You are these melodies
Floating
Falling upwards

As you rock me to my sleep

And it’s all
Incomprehensible
Track Name: LoveSong
Colour – Colour - Blush.

I stand here
Rooted deep into all these moaning insecurities
That surface from my within

I keep on whispering your name
Over and over again
Trying to recreate the peace
That surrounded us
As we stood in silence

Hi.

Coloured – Coloured Blush,
As it speaks in its very own Tongues
I don’t even try to understand
What it all means right now

So I stand here
Rooted deep into that ground of emotional unease

As it overwhelms

It comes in waves
Travelling all over my body

And I stand here

Tied tight into its movements
Taking deepest of the breaths
Making sure that I do not fly off

Well, Thank You.

I blossom from deep within
In a gentle manner
That finds me all disarmed and confused

Thinking of every other defeat that according to someone I once spoke to…truly makes you a stronger

As I pick up the pieces, sun is long gone
And
Another song appears

It’s wishful and I repeat it until the pieces become the same old me
Again

It goes,

‘Would you be mine
Merry Merry Valentine
Bundled in a magic box
I keep my fingers crossed
That I…’
Track Name: First Encounter
Skovranok riesi si veci
Krasne a na plne srdce
Hlasom slavika

Hladi to dusu
V tomto meste plnom hluku
It’s layer on top of the layer
It’s the noise that beats us down
And here he is
Empty hall
Monday night
Len zvukar, barman a ja
Soaking it all in

A skovranok riesi si veci…
Track Name: RegenAchtig
Het regen kommt
Van boven naar beneden
Het kommt
Het kommt

And in the meantime

There you are
Licking the mirror
Hoping to get closer to your Self

And in the meantime

Dážď padá
Zhora nadol

Het kommt
Het kommt

And in the meantime

There you are
Taking your pills
Remaining all calm
Just like a sign in a record store had said

And in a meantime

Dážď padá
Zhora nadol

Het kommt...
Track Name: BerryNess
Cryin‘
Poisonberries Poisonberries

There’s a glimpse of consciousness
It’s a home grown one
Sitting in the corner of the eye
Weepin‘

Weepin‘
Poisonberries Poisonberries

I thought:
‘Is there anything to tear about?’

Then you said:
‘It’s those Poisonberries Poisonberries’

Glimpse of insecurity
It’s an home grown one
And it’s squeekin‘:

‘Oh Those Poisonberries Poisonberries’

And he who understood it clearly, he just shook his head and walked away
Never turned back
Never returned
Only in his pocket, there was a handful of berries that knew how to sing
And cry from time to time
Track Name: Beauty and the Beast
I walk my ego on a leash
It barks on passers by

I walk my ego on a leash
It barks on passers by

I feed it flesh I keep it fresh
It barks on passers by

Look it in the eye it’s ever so cute
Hey look it in the eye it’s ever so cute

I feed it flesh I keep it fresh
It barks on passers by

I picked up the phone and spoke to Jackie
She was in Miami and she told me that her ego had a condo.
So I started thinking what my ego is like and I thought…
Well…
I thought,

My ego is a dog, it barks on passers by

I feed it flesh I keep it fresh
It barks on passers by

Hey look it in the eye, it’s ever so cute.
Look it in the eye, it’s ever
So
Cute
And I walk it on a leash

As it barks around
As it barks around
As it barks around
