Track Name: At the end of the day
At the end of the day

The reason you’re happy has the name of She
But you can’t clearly see how stupid you may be
Love’s what she gives you being always there
But you don’t seem to feel no you don’t seem to care

At the end of the day you can be anything
She can be like a queen living the full of joy
At the end of the day you can be anything
She can be like a queen so don’t be a nervous boy

Nothing can happen if you lose some time
But if you lose your mind then you may lose it all
She may be patient and she may be strong
But she may free herself and you’ll be on your own

At the end of the day you can be anything
She can be like a queen living the full of joy
At the end of the day you can be anything
She can be like a queen so don’t be a nervous boy

A promise of changing and a lie
A hope that is broken and a cry

You know what you’re doing and you’re trying hard
But somewhere in the way something you’re doing bad
Think of the water that can fill your glass
Think of the things you take maybe you just relax

At the end of the day you can be anything
She can be like a queen living the full of joy
At the end of the day you can be anything
She can be like a queen so don’t be a nervous boy
Track Name: Open the door
Open the door

Selling your own daughter for some water
Selling your own daughter for some water
Then selling the same water for a bomb
And that’s the way the trade is going on

To hell with all this war
I said open the door
Open the door

You’re dreaming of your children every morning
They’re turning into ashes without warning
You’re selling their dead bodies for a gun
It’s not a dream that’s how you feel a man

To hell with all this war
I said open the door
Open the door

Death is your best friend he brings you money
Money in the color of blood
Can you find the limit of your lust?
Can you see your face in all this rust?

To hell with all this war
I said open the door
Open the door
Track Name: Forever
Forever

A strange kind of story in the strangest part of town
The beauty of a woman and the courage of a man
I will tell you my truth but you’ll have to create another
My name is hope and I know that I’m in love with you
My sister is the future and she will like you too
You’re the one that will come and will fall and will stand and follow

And the loser always tries
And the winner always lies
And the children are born and they die with this song forever

When looking in the mirror I see a little girl
I came into heaven and turned it into hell
I will tell you my truth but you’ll have to create another
I’ll let you take my body and bury it away
But even if I didn’t you’d do it anyway
You’re the rule of the fools and fools are the rule of time

And the loser always tries
And the winner always lies
And the children are born and they die with this song forever
Track Name: Masquerade costume
Masquerade costume

Ηearing voices from next room
No more strength left to consume
I want be right here waiting for you
I got to find a way out through

As the years passing by
Memories have left behind
Stuck in this shithole in this doom
Wearing a masquerade costume

A rebel artist I’ve become
My own creations to overcome

Ηearing voices from next room
No more strength left to consume
I want be right here waiting for you
Wearing a masquerade costume

The rebel artist I’ve become
My own creations to overcome

Through the darkness in the light I see a different sky
Track Name: Serenity is gone
Serenity is gone

Well I’m not used to talking about my life
but now I feel I cannot stop
I saw a man and I thought he had my face
I heard a preacher and I thought he had my voice
Up on a train since the moment I opened my eyes
sometimes I’m sure I’ve seen this place again
But deep in my heart there’s some courage and some hope
and certainty that these rails will never end

Feels that I’m growing but this world is getting small
I cannot take it anymore

Well here I stand in the center of the scene
with all the lights pointing right in my head
But in the dark there’s a man that can’t be seen
holding a gun with all the power of his hand
The show is over and the applause pricks my ear
the hall is empty and the man is getting bigger
He closes his eyes but serenity is gone
he laughs at me and at once he pulls the trigger

Feels that I’m growing but this world is getting small
I cannot take it anymore

Now as I lay dead upon the floor
I know my name will never be forgotten
I see that train getting lost inside the smoke
and my body being fresh instead of rotten

Feels that I’m growing but this world is getting small
I cannot take it anymore
Track Name: If you're with me
If you’re with me

Safety’s dead
we’re living in the danger zone
There are times
when everything is
going wrong all hope is gone
But then I think
if I would choose another way
And I say no
when all is lost
I’ll be the one who’s going to stay

I’ve got to love my life and live my love
Tomorrow morning we shall all be gone
If you’re with me then we can carry on

Don’t be afraid
there’s nothing that can do you harm
Do not pretend
there is no end
just a new start in every land
And if one place
just doesn’t feel like home no more
There is no door
to hold us in
we’re leaving now we’re moving on

I’ve got to love my life and live my love
Tomorrow morning we shall all be gone
If you’re with me then we can carry on

I always want to fight for something new
Meet troubles on the way and make it through
I love the things to come and I ain’t looking back
My life is like a wheel that’s running fast
I don’t care if this run is going to last
I only know that I have just another day

I’ve got to love my life and live my love
Tomorrow morning we shall all be gone
If you’re with me then we can carry on
Track Name: Time machine
Time machine

Those angels inspiring my poetry
those angels condemning my words
Those angels demons that can’t be trust
and humans trying without hope

Those lovers lost in a time machine
Those lovers that chose to be free

Conviction one or the other way
together we’re all alone
And angels demons that can’t be trust
but humans still seeking for hope

Those lovers lost in a time machine
Those lovers that chose to be free

And I’m loving every hour
and I’m loving every day
and I’m loving every year
And I’m dying every hour
and I’m dying every day
and I’m dying every year

Those lovers lost in a time machine
Those lovers that chose to be free
Track Name: Actress II
Actress II

When the wind is strong she is fighting on her own
For her right to choose for her right not to belong and carry on
When the wind comes down she is resting for a while
Ready for a chance she surely won’t deny

Maybe someday you’ll find another role
Just don’t look back and always ask for more

When the night has come she gets ready to transform
She can’t stand herself being the same another dawn she’ll soon be gone
When she says it’s now you can’t hold her anyhow
She’s already dead and reborn in time

Maybe someday you’ll find another role
Just don’t look back and always ask for more

We may start together but the road will always take us apart, sure he will
I used to be an inspiration but now I’m just a fan, just a fan
You’ve changed your name your face and I’ve changed mine
The only thing that hasn’t change is the same old act, well who knows?

Maybe someday you’ll find another role
Just don’t look back and always ask for more
Track Name: In the fire of time
In the fire of time

Some great news just listen
There’s nothing in you to be great
You’re crying you’re laughing
you choose what it is to be said

In the fire of time we rise
In the fire of time we fall
This poem I read you
Is talking about life and death
The essence of freedom
Is giving away every breath

In the fire of time we rise
In the fire of time we fall
Track Name: Tireless rolling river
Tireless rolling river

I’m a tireless rolling river
but I won’t end up to the sea
I know the sea will be my prison
but my cause is to be free
Keep on searching for my destiny
to find the truth I don’t believe
Then my river keep on rolling
and that’s all I have to give

Wanna take my water there
where no water’s ever gone
Wanna share my air with others
wanna breath it all alone
Let the good swim in my body
leave the damned sink in my deep
Then my river keep on rolling
and that’s all I have to give
Track Name: Greed
Greed

Silver silver why won’t you turn to gold
Power power I’d like to love you more
Nothing seems to be more satisfying
Everything I want is getting mine

Perfect perfect I’m living in a dream
Never never I’ll never be at need
I live in the center of the world
I’m the one who’s never getting old

Now I’m crawling naked on the ground
Now I’m calling death to help me out

Here I’m lying I’ve even lost myself
Hear me crying but there’s nobody left
Tell me what the hell is going on
Tell me what I have been doing wrong

Now I’m crawling naked on the ground
Now I’m calling death to help me out

Silver silver why won’t you turn to gold
Power power I’d like to love you more
Nothing seems to be more satisfying
Everything I want is getting mine

Now I’m crawling naked on the ground
Now I’m calling death to help me out
Track Name: Precious time
Precious time

I’ m feeling sad again no one listen’s anyway
I wanna break the rule I wanna kill the bull
Ain’t gonna spend my precious time

I’m so alone again salvation in my head
It’s all right anyway I keep my pieces in a secret way
Ain’t gonna spend my precious time
Still got a lot, a lot to find

Ain’t gonna spend my precious time
Still got a lot, a lot to find

I’m feeling sick again dead end inside my head
Don’t wanna be no fool I’m gonna break the rule
Ain’t gonna spend my precious time
Still got a lot to find

Aint gonna spend my precious time
Still got a lot, a lot to find
I’m gonna make till I die
