Track Name: MOTHER OF DREAMS
MOTHER OF DREAMS

Mother of dreams make us alive
For we are your child
And we shall drink your milk
And we shall live forever in your shadow

Mother of dreams keep us sedated
For this isn't real
And we won't stay awake
And we won't try to fight this feeling that you spread

Mother of dreams border my soul
And if I shall fail
Blame me and make me ache
And I will never lose my way again

Mother of dreams bless me with visions
Sweet velvet visions
And I know that bliss ain't ever as sweet without the sour
Oh mother

Mother of dreams colour my nights
For I need a shelter
Under these giant leaves
I'll rest and forget I once lived out of this world

Paint the inside of my eyes
Make a mirror out of blue skies
Childhood

Sea of undiscovered sounds
Step on higher grounds
Reversed

Mountains digged by the lightning
Open view to unfrightening
Faces

That barely don't exist
They're just shapes in the mist
Or maybe
I saw someone
Track Name: HOUDINI
HOUDINI

Black magic lady
Lost and scary little girl
In my arms baby
I got trapped in a whisper
The trick is hazy
But I saw your face behind the smoke
No I'm not crazy
I'll catch you before I choke

You can't run from every now and then
You can't run from every crowded place
I can't let you fade in the end
Oh don't disappear in the haze

Undisclosed feeling
I feel brand new to this world
Can't tell if I'm dreaming
Is it your voice that I heard
You got me floating
Up in a colourless sky
I saw you waving
You still need me to get high

Love you don't know what you're doing
You don't know what you're messing with
Love you don't know if you're growing
Or if you're just a fugitive

New strange vibration closing your eyes during love
No explanation you can watch me from above

Escape from reason
I saw your smile in my hat
What a nice vision
To see you run like a cat
Rave becomes the dream
Delirium issues the curl
Let it flow baby
You were born from my shiver

You got the light to my desire
You know you've got nothing else to find
And we'll burn it in a great fire
Cause we're both mother of dreams child
Track Name: HEADS OR TAILS
HEADS OR TAILS

Lost in the features of your face
She's laying on her side and it's all in its right place
Feathers run through the air
Morning light and heavy thunder in electric flare
Would you dare ?
Would you dare she says
And her body sways cause she just wanna play
Oh she just wanna play
Waste the days away
And this face you watch is uncolored just grey

Yeah the head on the coin stares straight at you
She could as well throw down the glove at you
And I ain't scared of the duel
Or to mess up the jewel
I won't be too tender if you're too cruel
The rule
You know it so well
You're just making it swell
To the point where you can't go back
Now you've got to attack

And you're thin
When you flee away from the heat
Repeating
That it's a shiver not a cheat
But as far
As you can stear clear of my arms
You will find
A mean to come back to my charms

The devil
Tongue burned your iced inner body
You revel
And then you're slightly exhausted
By the bends
All the windings and the detours
A dead end
That keeps on restauring me yours

Now they're face to face and you hear
The words that make your stomach drop and you’re bound by fear
No you won’t compromise
Realise that you can't slack a single sacrifice
What a faker
Unconscient heartbreaker
Could you actually be audacious and bold
Too heavy to hold
The waves you can’t withhold
Are an act of faith a secret wink to the

Devil
That burned your iced inner body
You revel
And then you're slightly exhausted
I'm stranded
Can't find a reason to refuse
No excuse
We loose
You choose

But now the gun's loaded she's silently counting
And he throws the dime unconsciently hoping
That it would fall on the edge
But they already stand on the ledge
And there ain't no lucky bird to swallow the coin
And before they both realise what they've done

Tails are starring at the sky
Heads are stuck to the ground
There's a bullet in your eye
All my dreams just drowned
Track Name: DE PROFUNDIS LAMENT
DE PROFUNDIS LAMENT

Everyday I'm going worse
Never a man has known my curse
I'm born to grow ridiculous
The time is flying not a tie hasn't yet burst
Who called this nightmare to start ?
I tell you life's not worth a fistful of dirt
Wear a mask and spit your notes
But dont call it art
Even the stars said they'd last at first
Even your mind faked its own birth
Undress your fist wear velvet heels
Pave the way for those who kneel

I said everyday I'm going worse
My thoughts are stuck inside your hearse
And if it's death that waits around
Then time is right I'm about to make it burst
Who called this nightmare to start ?
The pain is real when you dream that you're hurt
No more masks curtain's closed
It's falling apart
If you're a star then you shot me first
If there's anything we can trust
Left from the world we used to know
Drifted away by those who blow
Then bite the snake and ride the lightning
You're a first class killer on a crowded ring
Climb the steps seek the heights
Fight your thirst yeah eat some sand

Oh Mother, I fear the lack of drism
In my bed there ain't no realism
I lost the faith and I lost the way
Cause you made me turn from green to grey
Mother, I'm prisoner of the prism
And my sin took me to another season
I am death, a never ending hole
Make me alive, for you ought my soul

Mother
Please
Hear my call
Please
Mother

Well go ahead search for the lights
But dont take my hand
Im gone deaf for the yellIn the depth wouldn't stop to the sound of any bell
And for my hearing guided my pace
I, unsound in this blinding place
Get at least to know the taste of rest
If you're a star then you shot me first
If there's anything we can trust
Left from the world we used to know
Drifted away by those who blow
Track Name: THE SHALLOW END
THE SHALLOW END

Mother why have you forsaken me
Shivers that wouldn't awaken me
And I'm trying not to listen to them
But whispers are making their way through my ears

(Hold on it's a)
poison you spread
Running round in my head
And I can't find an end or a reason
(To care)
You're unconcerned and constant in grief
And the sin you disguise
Still echoes in dead girl's eyes

The mirror dies
And your child cries
I'm left aside
But noone tries
To break these lies

Oh Mother looks like the book is achieved
Can't tell if it's some death or a relief
And before the last page is written
I'd rather stick a knife deep in your breast

Mother of dreams curtain of lies
