Track Name: Sit by the Fire
Sit by the fire
(H.Andrione)

I've clearly made up my mind
I will go this evening
I will leave, leave

I'll tell them everything
I will share my fears
I will lie, lie

I'll pack my things and I will
burn all my clothes
and I'll sit by the fire I will sit by the fire


I'll take my parent's bread
and hit the road with hunger and pain
I'll be free, free

I'll meet so many people
I will steal their names
and shake their hands
I will be (finally) be

Then the night will come
and I will feel so alone
Until I sit by the fire, sit by the fire

I'll sit by the fire, sit by the fire
Track Name: Stand the Truth
Stand the truth
(H.Andrione)

There is something to forget
something to hide inside
for the common good

He woke up last morning
with a twist in his head
He could just not decide

Heaven ! Heaven, said the commercials
Heaven for sale with discount

Heaven heaven to fill your empty heart
and your pointless life

to help you stand the truth

When he tries to face it
with a thick tongue and a tight throat,
he just passes out

So hard to face the truth
and deal with its offspring
better stay home and quiet

than trying to stand the truth

See me runnin
See me runnin before I fall apart

and it's so insidious

see me running to find out how I can live with it

there's something to forget something to forget
some kind of twist in my head
i need to clean up the mess and call some old friends

To help me stand the truth
Track Name: Wrong Enemy
Wrong enemy (H.Andrione)

There is something inside us I don't understand
how we can love ourselves and suddenly hate ourselves
There's only one person that you should know well
You know that I know you but you seem to forget

Now we're bored and tired
to hear you talking

Is there a single word that you didn't heard well ?
cause when we try to really talk we just bark like dogs
so if you fail to get the bustle clear
stick to the old faith that the loudest is king

Now we're bored and tired
to hear you talking

Have you ever seen the child
did you watched him try
to flourish
Please take your turn
There's a lack of knowledge
a lack of knowledge
There's always a chance to come back to life
I roll my eyes
and I pour my lies
You have set me on fire you know
I've made all the crowns and I've headed the dirty clowns
There's no one to call now
No need to turn it on
No need to turn it on now
There's nothing to take and cherish
There's nothing to get
There's nothing to get

There is something now that I understand
yeah we can love ourselves and also hate ourselves
as long as trust is part of the game
and then we will show you how to love yourself

Now we're bored and tired
to hear you talking
Track Name: Words of Wisdom
Words of wisdom
H.Andrione

Some of them will try to fool you
Some will always seem to care about you
Some will bring light and warmth around like a giant sun


There will be both love and suffering
as you will quickly notice
some kind of mixed up feelings that you will be dealing with


and all these things in motion and all these words of wisdom


I....I let it slip on … my skin....like …. like raindrops on a stone

Even the burns won't really matter
the arguements with a sibling
there won't be choices to pick from
only ways and directions

and All these things in motion and all these words of wisdom


I.......let it slip on … my skin....like …. like raindrops on a stone


I feel it tonight I feel it, this absolute calm filling me

I'm a raven I'm a raven I feel blessed as I am drifting thru the ocean
Track Name: Security Slap
Security Slap


Keep an eye on the things that you've hardly bought
they could steal it
Keep an eye on your child when you're out
may he walk straight
There's an eye watching us overthere
show him your face
And behold his omniscience from which
you cannot hide

You fear it ! Don't you ?

Even my neighbors they're frightening me
with their smiles
And I don't speak about those who dare
free their mind
How can they turn away from the eye
he's always here
Showing us what to hate or fear
I can't stand it !

You fear it ! Don't you ?

And if the seal is broken
if you see the eye
yeah if the seal is broken
if you see it too
Tell me who's the real enemy now ?
Is it you or me ?
No, they have to fear us now
fear us, fear us
Track Name: Far from my Dreams
Far from my dreams
H.Andrione


I guess I'm just living far from my dreams
I guess I'm just living far from my dreams
Somewhere I've lost what makes sense
Somewhere I've lost what makes sense

and the tide is turning
my schemes are shifting
my hopes are all drifting away


I guess it's not over, just the way to grow up more
I've still got to learn from the loss
and need to dream once more

and the tide is turning
my schemes are shifting
but my fear is flowing away


and it makes me laugh
and it makes me tremble to the bones


soon the snow will melt
i just have to wait
buried under
Track Name: Already Gone
ALREADY GONE
(H.Andrione)

They've come to get me
with no mercy at all
some claws to gnaw me
they've released the hounds
a mob with sticks and clubs come along
and I just need to cut my bonds and
I'm already gone I'm already gone

As you try to tell me
all these things you want
as she tries to turn me oh turn me on
when their selfish speeches ring out true
and their false voices seduce you
I'm already gone yeah i'm already gone yes I'm already gone, i'm already gone

solo

She speaks to you and your eyes
keep staring at the past and the future
they see where it started, you're touching the point
how many times will you miss her calls

You can see it coming
a restless feeling roaming in your veins
a slight spark at the back of your brain

You can hardly deny it you're wasting away
don't try to hide from me I'll catch you up
as the plague killed the old men

I prefer to leave it where I found it
I'd rather bury my head in the sand
I prefer not to worry not to worry
I'd rather bury my head in the sand
Track Name: Until
Until

Until I find myself in the mirror
Until the meaning of the word gets clear
Unless they bury me in a black hole
Until the grey smoke turns into steam

Cause all these things that I put together
gather me faith,
The purpose is so clear in my head, it shines,
All these things that I put together gather me faith
and everything could be easier now

Until we see the cause and its consequences
Until a sea of faces fill in the streets
Unless we let them ruin and dismantle
Until the rules of the game become fair

Cause all these things that I put together
gather me faith,
The purpose is so clear in my head, it shines,
All these things that I put together gather me faith
and everything could be easier now
Track Name: A Price to Pay
A Price to Pay
(H.Andrione)


Several hours or several years, you
spent a moment with us
it's now time to walk away
and to let in our mind
just a light footprint covered by dust
and the wind will make it disappear

some things may stay and some may go away
the empty spaces will be filled with colors and sounds
and even if I shed blood or even flesh
it's the price to pay
the price to pay
the price to pay

...ooh...

another teardrop in my ocean
nothing but a drop

What's the point of loving you if
It's not an endless love
Love is a circle, they say
Love is a circle
but I have broke the circle, yes I have,
breaking the circle
breaking the circle
Track Name: Expanding Universe
Expanding Universe
(H.Andrione)


There 's a sad landscape when I look through my window,
some brown fields and mountains covered in snow
This has never changed, and you know it well
This is our landscape and yours since ages

and i'm beggin, to see you around

I see you walking in those fields, all alone
Silently drifting in this evening mist
and I follow your walk, i follow your walk watching all the steps you make
those steps that will lead you to the stone

and i'm beggin, to see you around

Devour a rose, or tear some wood up
anything to move me away
Hit a wall with your fist or drink a glass of ashes
It makes no difference to me
