Track Name: Alice's Song
"Alice's song"

Oh dear Alice, don't you know
that I would love to encourage you,
I’d like to show you how to smile
'cause you are so beautiful

Whoa There’s a weight over my shoulders
Whoa But you know, I can hide it at all
I've got a black shadow on my head and in my soul
but I still keep on walking and facing the show

This world is cruel
and I couldn’t ever tell you lies
inside this darkness
it’s so hard to find some light

My heart is blue
and my smiles are made of plastic
‘cause inside this darkness
it’s so hard to find some light

Whoa I remember when I was like you
Whoa how is our two worlds so different
I've got a black shadow on my head and in my soul
but I still keep on walking and facing the show

Chorus

I am not your savior
But I can try to be a friend
someone you can trust
When the darkness overcomes you

Chorus
Track Name: Ballad Of The Wolf
"Ballad of the wolf"

The wolf is watching me
and he never takes his eyes off me, his eyes off me
I wonder where he wants to take me
I wonder if he wants to kill or marry me

I'm not afraid of the big, bad wolf tonight
I'm not afraid of the big, bad wolf tonight

The wolf is walking right behind me
follows my footprints in the snow
inside the woods
And I can hear his footsteps closer now
He's gonna catch me now
He's gonna catch me now

But I'm not afraid of the big, bad wolf tonight
Yeah I'm not afraid of the big, bad wolf tonight

Chorus:
Will you take me to your den
and you'll make me yours tonight?
I won't hide or run away from this,
You have to know that
I can't wait to feel you over me
and I can't wait to beg for one last kiss

What if Little Red Cap falls in love with the wolf?
'cause I lost myself inside the woods

I'm not afraid of the big, bad wolf tonight

Chorus
Track Name: Borderline
"Borderline"

Everyday I dance on the razorblade
between the right and the wrong,
between the light and the dark,
it's like a suttle pleasure of my heart

Do you want to dance with me?
It depends if you're crazy enough
It's my way to live and to be
I'm quite a good dancer after all

I don't feel sane at all
i swear I've never been at all
Don't let me fall
Don't let me fall

Everyday I dance on the razorblade
between normality and insanity,
between wisdom and recklessness,
It's such a challenge against myself

Do you want to dance with me?
it depends if you're crazy enough
It's my way to live and to be
I'm quite a good dancer after all

Chorus:

Please don't let me fall

Chorus
Track Name: Sleep
"Sleep"

Chorus:
Don't turn off the lights
so I can close my eyes
oh lay just for a while
maybe I could sleep
maybe I could sleep

Everynight when I lie on my bed
and the city sleeps out there
I see shadows all around me
they look at me in silence

Something's hiding in the darkness
and it's coming out to take me,
I try to scream but my mouth is sown,
come and save me from the dead

Something's scratching in the darkness
and it's coming out to take me,
I try to scream but my mouth is sown,
Come and save me from the dead

Chorus:

Kiss me goodnight
and I'll be fine
just hold me in your arms
and save me tonight

And I'll be fine...
Track Name: Paradox Of Perfection
"Paradox of perfection"

There is something that hurts her deep inside of her,
she doesn't like herself
and she wishes to be different
and like an angel spread her wings and fly away

All she wants is to be perfect
and light like a butterfly

Chorus:
Can't you see you're dying?
can't you see this demon is killing you slowly?
Well, it's eating you mind
you're losing your life

She's so broken
but she wouldn't ever disappoint herself
giving up is not for her
she aspires for perfection
in everything she does

All she wants is to be perfect
and light like a butterfly

Chorus:

I don't want to heal
I just want to be perfect
perfect to you
Track Name: Hydra
"Hydra"

I've got nothing but myself,
the norm of your life should be
"don't ever count on someone!"
DON'T EVER COUNT ON SOMEONE!
but you don't know what I mean,
No

I've got nothing but my will power
try to equal me
you must have desperation,
YOU'RE JUST BAD IMITATIONS!
but you don't know what I mean,
No

chorus:
Na Na Na Na Na Na Na
and nothing's ever been
Na Na Na Na Na Na Na
to easy for me
Na Na Na Na Na Na Na
and nothing's ever been
Na Na Na Na Na Na Na
easy to get for me

So you cut my head
and two will regrow
Track Name: Change
"Change"

I already gave you what you deserve
But it's still not enough for me, no
I am better than anyone here
and I know who I am, what to do and how to do it well

While instead I feel stronger than ever
I can get whatever I decide i want
and you won't tell me what is right or wrong
because I know, I know it all my own

Chorus:
But you don't know
how much of me I've lost
How much I've sacrificed
everyday to change
to change

Fuck you! being human is not for me
You all lose when I win, when I win
i've said
Fuck you! being human is not for me
You all lose when I win, when I win

Chorus
Track Name: Fire Of Desire
"Fire of Desire"

A kiss
it’s all we think about and always miss
When my heart sings
there’s no escape
to bring yourself to believe
that your desire's fire

So now all that we can do,
don’t know how,
it's blowing out this candle
I start to tear,
but after all we know the sun will burn
until it will die
until we'll die
(until we'll die)

Chorus:
No man’s land
admission free
Wherever we can stand
without counting to three,
wherever it happens at once
just because of a glance
without counting to three


this is the place where to find is not a race
me and you... it's not so easy
this is the time where to enjoy is not a crime
me and you
Track Name: Empty Bottles And Tears
"Empty bottles and tears"

Last night I have made a mistake one more time
I had promised myself, you and my friends
I would have never done it again

Now it's hard to look at myself in the mirror
finding out what i've become
now it's hard to look at myself in the mirror, you know that

Chorus:
I hate to say that I'm sorry
what is more is not words but facts
I know I have disappointed you and I broke our promise
I didn't want this, I didn't want this
but I just want you to know that I'm sorry
yeah, I'm sorry

And the most hurting thing is knowing that
I've hurt you, I didnt want it,
but I'm believing its been the last time

Chorus:

Now I'm here to swear in front of you
in front of God that I want you,
I won't do it again 'cause you and I will forget this night

Chorus
Track Name: Vain
"Vain"

Don't ever let him alone
like I've felt before
show him Your Light
when he'll lose himself in the dark
You always give him Your hand
You always give him Your hand

chorus:
Don't wanna be an empty box anymore,
please, Lord, fill me with your Grace
I can't keep on walking like a ghost on earth,
please show me the right way 'cause I feel vain

Please, help us to get better
'cause I feel we need to change
and I need to materialize myself
and not to be faded
Yeah, I'm feeling feeling like
something's missing in my life
and I know it's You
I know it's You

Whoa, and I know how much is hard to grow
in this world

Chorus:

Fill me up and light me up again
show me the right way, make me feel better

Chorus
Track Name: Home
"Home"

I have been waiting for the sun so long
holding on under a never ending rain
trying not to fade inside this never ending grey
trying not to fade inside this never ending grey

It's hard to survive when everyday's the same,
when all that remains to you is just yourself
and dreams that keep you from falling

Chorus:
Warm me inside like the sun
Shine so bright in the dark
and it feels like home
yeah it feels like home

it's hard to survive when everyday's the same
when all that remains to you is just yourself
and dreams that keep you from falling

Chorus
