For the members of the crowd that I´ve been listening: the worried man´s inside out aware it´s happening. Land by land where I was before the king. For the members of the crowd; wandering steps are to shape these inner plains into forward landscapes. Land by land where I was before the king Land by land Whisper comes, lighting in And there´s nothing left in my homeland there´s nothing old you can hold on to I´m falling in love with the wind that rises from the east begging for luck almost in peace And that´s the end of the funeral That´s the end of the calm Do you wanna take a walk in the fog? I´ve been playing there for long And that´s the end of the funeral That´s the end of the funeral And that´s the end of the funeral That´s the end of the calm And there´s nothing left in my homeland there´s nothing old you can hold on to I´m falling in love with the wind that rises from the east begging for luck almost in peace

I’m the lawyer, you’re the law  How can you hold the swell?  I’m the tide but you’re the moon  Have you ever hesitated?  Swimming on my drowning hopes  Believing they would never sink  They’ve just gone, gone, gone  Gone, gone, gone  I’m a dreamer  And you’re the fucking nightmare  Like the ocean’s  Like the ocean’s  To the rain  I’m falling down cause you’re gravity  Plucked the feathers off my wings  Like one thought in the whole humanity  Which never blazed its trail  Swimming on my drowning hopes  Believing they would never sink  They’ve just gone, gone, gone my lady  Gone, gone, gone  Sail away, you better come back home  Sail away, you better come back home  You better come back home  I’m the lawyer you’re the law  I’m a dreamer  And you’re the fucking nightmare  Like the ocean’s  Like the ocean’s  To the rain

And even if I start alone Whenever I chase this sadness I´ll be the echo against my wall, My wall, my shadow´s wall And even if I start alone Whenever I chase this sadness I´ll be the echo against my wall, My wall, my shadow´s wall I sit by the light the dust fills The mess has returned, the glass is pouring with it I hear twinning minds with broken links Every time alarms go off, familiar tic. And even if I start alone Whenever I chase this sadness I´ll be the echo against my wall And even if I start alone Whenever I chase this sadness I´ll be the echo against my wall, My wall, my shadow´s on the wallI´ and ll goI´ll go, go, go. Wherever I ought to go As far as I need it And then I´ll tell you how it goes And even if I start alone Whenever I chase

I´ll be at the back Singing within echoes that burn Counting down the seconds as seeds Bringing angles and homes The awnings mean the fences fits the yard where I balance my dreams between me and the Sun And it´s for both It is for both It drives to fall asleep And it´s for both It is for both Ain´t no shores to drift? I´m hearing the reaction Meanings are becoming raw Strolling hands in dance Melting into matter in the state that it´s been found The awnings mean the fences that fit the yard where I balance my sight under the timing of Sun Light, hopes. Light, hopes. I´m lying Light, hopes. Light, hopes. I´m lying (It is so hard, It is so hard to chase you, to chase back) And it´s for both It is for both It drives to fall asleep And it´s for bothIt is for both Ain´t no shores to drift? If I lose your eyes I don´t know how I´m gonna see

Home  I got to go home  With an enemy That I don´t know  This is the second war  Are you what I need?  This is the second war  But I got you  Times of a half-way rising sun  Doubts, sound familiar in your truth  Tense calm outside  Is blocking your mind  But I got you  Rocking mine  This is the second war  Are you what I need?  This is the second war  But I got you  I´m a missing bird willing to fly  Maybe to nowhere else  Like a missing bird willing to fly  Far from the lake  I´ll wait for the instant  Follow me, disappear

And then will raise My father´s arms I know that every time I´ve been A question held that got to link a kiss into the right welcome that let me sing above the rights we´ve been using for so long may we just take a while and now winter around some of my friends have been worried Oh this guy is gonna fall again low Be my grass up the stairs I hope you can hold this metaphor When I don´t at all Is this smog or just delay? Might be the bend´s fault They ask questions about thoughts While they blame And no matter how loud do we shout Cause after all, after all All the words we never say Are gold, are gold, Our goal´s to remain I hope you can hold this metaphor When I don´t at all I wish I could build up your case Roll on roll on Your case But carry on with that Cause I belong to what I feel

I´m, I´m, I´m made by mistakes And I didn´t even mind to lose The war, the war, the war is over The war, the war, the war is underrated I could take a seat while you disagree about the rests The spiral of light: lifting dust, awakening dirt While I recall from my mindsmoke The war, the war, the war is over The war, the war, the war is underrated The war, the war, the war is over me

As a mother I declare It´s awful to see this ship still what do you mean, mum? I´m still standing up your knees That girl flirts with the fall She thought about Lying to the thieves Are you bored of me as a dog? I could stop or just get thrilled Three women up a horse They might believe It´s moment to retain In the hands of time Memories split And I felt ourselves pretty much containing Rules are somewhere else dividing the space that we leave for nonsense You´re the best that happens here And I feel the disarming breeze (x3) I could die in her arms I could live in her arms But it wouldn´t be dying It would be an arrival

Lets sail, let´s say I´ve nothing to say Where is all worth, by the way? Lets pray, my eyes got stuck in the ground No matter let me stay While I left my home to discover What´s out for now in this forest Lets invert myself, surface is undefined as well. This old and slippery sand Ah, the horses won´t complain If we stop Ah, all the light that I don´t keep Might be a lover of the sand Somewhere in the sun Once I belonged to a tale, That I don´t want to lose I´ll do what wine does with blood Even if it stains, no matter if it stains Look at the sand, grab the sand by all accounts old and slippery sand look at the sand, grab the sand by all account sold and slippery sand Ah, the horses won´t complain If we stop Luck, all the luck that I don´t keep Ah, all the luck that I don´t keep Might be somewhere there outdoors Please don´t hide yourself my lord Might be somewhere there outdoors, my lord Might be a lover of the sand.

Would you mind If I lay behind the stone? Cause there´s a tree and snow is about to fall there´s a tree it grows up with calm While I´m watching leaves Spinning down from where they grow They gather themselves fine Then you´ll crash and step on And I would like to check What memory holds This time, a year This time, a year But it feels all fine Regarding all these homeless holes where touch the bright like anything could be blown And it feels all fine Regarding all these homeless holes So would you mind if I lay behind the stone? We probably have What others desire We probably hide When others don´t I won´t be safe at all, after you. And I call from distant stairs, so did I get you now? It takes time to descend But here is all allowed Maybe I, I walk in circles cause I don´t know where it ends. Maybe I, I walk in circles cause I don´t know where it ends. Not knowing where’s the end.
