Track Name: First Death
Winter cold, oh how I know you
But I smoked a hundred thousands
Cigarettes since I last saw you
I've got black paintings on my hands
Don't you even recognize me ?
All I see is a hazy shade
Leaves are brown and I'm so lonely
I'm not able to hear my babe

If I ever end up deaf
That would be my frst death
I won't try to go ahead
I'll just lay down on my bed

These days are shivering so bad
There's nothing left to protect me
I close my eyes or I'll get mad
I don't even want to be free
My skin can't hold all of my soul
I throw the pieces all around
You remind me I'm not that old
Though I left my blood on the ground

If I ever end up deaf
That would be my frst death
I won't try to go ahead
I'll just lay down on my bed
Track Name: Mad & Lex
I saw a cowboy in the state of New York
But noone would even have a look at him
Thwenty years old, he was too odd to work
In his eyes I saw he took morphine
He told me his name was Mad and he was so quiet
There was no sadness in his words
He was full of spirit maybe a bit tired
Going alone not affraid of birds

Dum flying aver the avenue
Ain't got no money nothing new
Sinign alone in te dirty streets
Searchs end finds a nice cloud where he sits

I saw an Apache in the town of Philly
But noone would even have a look at him
Twenty years old he was too young to be silly
Look at his face and was fucking dim
He told me his name was Lex and he was so shy
I felt something great in his brown eyes
Let's go to New York, got money for the bus
Get to the city, not affraid of birds

Dum flying aver the avenue
Ain't got no money nothing new
Sinign alone in te dirty streets
Searchs end finds a nice cloud where he sits
Track Name: Tristessa
Midnight in Mexico city
Feel the pain through my warm body
That's the only way to exist
A shot of morphine I'm a beast
Fell in the love with the great white dove
That stands imperially above
I ended up with Tristessa
My ticket up to nirvana

I thought you wanted my part of the movie
But noone seems to care except me
There's no love only a weird addiction
Born to die and that's the whole fiction

Mexico city calls midnight
Down in her arms I feel alright
We lay right here the bed is green
Drunk again I need my morphine
El Indio shows up with the brown
Get up and I'm already down
Tristessa starting to feel love
But is as dirty as a glove

I thought you wanted my part of the movie
But noone seems to care except me
There's no love only a weird addiction
Born to die and that's the whole fiction
Track Name: Damp
Silent room, I lay down head in the hands
No lullaby could take me to other lands
I want to fall asleep, I want to stay awake
I want to make plans
Words remains empty and it hurts so bad
Music is slowly making me mad
The dreams and memories brought by drugs sound so fake
I will wake up sad

The road to madness is filled with frustration
A load of sadness is killed by sedation
Abroad no success could build satisfaction
All slowed by the caress thrilled with temptation

Ain't no bloom, I'm just thinking of other ways
And noone has ever known colder days
I want to forget you, I want to stay in touch
I'm about to craze
I've been searching and hunting that made me weak
Don't come into the chamber or you'll find a freak
Though you can see the walls didn't change so much
I'm too tired to seak

The road to madness is filled with frustration
A load of sadness is killed by sedation
Abroad no success could build satisfaction
All slowed by the caress thrilled with temptation

Music is slowly making me mad
Music is slowly making me mad
Track Name: Wyclif (part I, II)
In the grace
Of the writings
And the haze
Of the meanings
I am lost
Between the holy and the dirt
And I'm sorry and I'm hurt
My soul isn't black or white
It's crying for the light
I'm trying to be a true believer
I hate the sin but I love the sinner

Praying to find beauty
Dying from men's cruelty
I damn the shadows of the soul
And expect the sky to fall

Is this faith
That I'm feeling
Or a taste
Of the knowing
I am lost
Ravished in all this holy mess
Repenting from my lightness
My soul isn't white or black
And I can see the Devil's back
My thoughts are led by Lucifer
I hate the sin and I love the sinner

Praying to find beauty
Dying from men's cruelty
I damn the shadows of the soul
And expect the sky to fall

WYCLIF - PART II

If I saw a shadow next to the moutain
And the storm set fire to my entire brain
If the bloom of my spirit makes the rain fall
And my faith is lost in a black hole
My god's named beauty and lives on the white cliff
He didn't suffer but death's a relief
The scourge is to forget you can see
The curse is to remember you can flee

If we have dark times and even cold days
Still the world needs to know that the bold pays
When you've got nothing left and you claim for dole
I just wonder who's gonna save my soul

Who's gonna save my soul ?
Who's gonna save my soul ?
Who's gonna save my soul ?
Who's gonna save my soul ?

Expecting the sky to fall

Why shall I live ?
Living on the white cliff
His name is Wyclif
Why shall I live ?

Who's gonna save my soul ?
