Track Name: Fiolet
Shapes and colours spill into my head
Tiny pebbles stuck between my naked toes
All the world is seemingly asleep
I can smell the dirt beneath my feet

Navy sky now straps itself with pink and gold
All the cruel beauty of an endless life
Nothing stirs the silence as I walk
All is calm and indifferent

I will hold on to this path
Nothing changes if I stray

Beautiful thing
Hard to let go
No one is here
To soften the blow
All of this pain
Hard to let go
There will be blood
As far as I know
There will be blood


Herbs and little flowers line my path
Sparrows wake and weave their nests of brittle twigs
Mute and heavy I keep climbing up
Feel the wheel turning underneath

Black against the morning sky
Distant figures mark my way
I will hold on to this path
Nothing changes if I stray

Beautiful thing
Hard to let go
No one is here
To soften the blow
All of this time
Hard to let go
There will be blood
As far as I know
There will be blood
Track Name: Comfort, Credit, Image
There's a solar storm this afternoon
and the airwaves crackle and die
It's an accident, an act of faith
I must lose my range to find my way
Down down down
No sight no sound
I'm deaf dumb blind
I will lose my range to get connected

And I'm letting go of clarity
as the signal's getting weaker
Disentangling from amenities
I will find a way if I can lose my
comfort

safety

shedding layer after layer

memory

Every living thing can be anesthetized
plant and animal alike spin their cocoons
their walls grow thick over time
let me slice right through my

Track Name: Somnia
Somnia quae mentes ludunt volitantibus umbris,
non delubra deum nec ab aethere numina mittunt,
sed sibi quisque facit. Nam cum prostrata sopore
urget membra quies et mens sine pondere ludit,
quidquid luce fuit tenebris agit. (...)

Et canis in somnis leporis vestigial latrat.
In noctis spatium miserorum vulnera Durant.

(...) Oppida bello
qui quatit et flammis miserandas eruit urbes,
tela videt (...) funera regum
atque exundantes profuso sanguine campos.

(Petronius)
Track Name: Desantisbox
God not yet, oh just not yet
I am becoming all the things you said
I might be
By degrees, no guarantees
All the imperfect possibilities delight me

Just not yet, let me forget
Becoming holy and let ignorance
Surround me
For why would I ever begin to learn to learn the law
You will then use to judge me

Glory to the one who doesn't know

Give me time for innocence
Protect me in my disobedience
Allow me
To live without the seed of doubt
That trickles poison into human heart
Obliquely
Spare me now the consequence
One day I'll join the ranks of all your saints
Inspite of me
It's all for you
So does it matter if I owe to you what other do

Lose me now, can you lose me now

Lose me as I lose myself
I keep on running into you and you
Delight me
There is no coincidence
Though if I tell you it will not make sense
Inspire me
Speak to me and in my chest
You plant an army that can wage a war
Beside me
In right or wrong
I am becoming all the things you want me to become

Glory to the one who doesn't know
Whether what he does is right or wrong

Lose me now, can you lose me now
Track Name: L'hiver
Mes amis disent ca suffit
Ils ont peur c'est trop pour une fille
Les jours d'hiver sont arrive
Le ciel reste ferme

Tous leurs conseils je n'entends plus
J'attends
Tout sera bien si j'attends
L'hiver dernière tu l'as promis
Le ciel s'ouvrira
Track Name: Hope
You know, I'm really sorry, that the heart took me so long

And yet when you said "no", I swear

Right there, you spoke the language of hope
Track Name: Eulalia
Wish I could crack this
A neck opens up beneath a blade
And a bird flies over
Releasing all she was to the heaven

Sleight of a cold hand
A trick for the audience to cheer
Take a look at the dead girl
As God is pulling coins from your ear


They tried to set the little girl aflame
She was without a sin and would not burn
And so they had to find another way
And so they had to find another way

If they chose to slice me down in two
They would find - nothing

Wish I could crack this
A child with a heart so full of darkness and light
Did you make her up
Just another one of your lies

Eulalia, Eulelie, Eulalia, Eulalia

They tried to set the little girl aflame
She was without a sin and would not burn
And so they had to find another way
And so they had to find another way

If they (they couldn't find a)
Chose to (find a thing)
Slice me down in two (they couldn't find a single thing)
They would find - nothing

Sleight of a cold hand
A trick for the audience to cheer
Take a look at the dead girl
As God is pulling coins from your ear

No way to answer
The snow covers up all of the guilt and the shame
The divine eye closes
And the bird flies away.
Track Name: Luna
Schwester von dem ersten Licht,
Bild der Zärtlichkeit in Trauer!
Nebel schwimmt mit Silberschauer
Um dein reizendes Gesicht;
Deines leisen Fußes Lauf
Weckt (…)
Mich und nächt'ge Vögel auf.

Des Beschauens holdes Glück
Mildert solcher Ferne Qualen;
Und ich sammle deine Strahlen,
Und ich schärfe meinen Blick.
Hell und heller wird es schon
Um die unverhüllten Glieder,
(…)

Forschend übersieht dein Blick
Eine großgemeßne Weite.
Hebe mich an deine Seite!
(…)



("An Luna” J.W.Goethe)
Track Name: Third Coming
Around, around…

One of these days you're gonna go back
Own up to things you'd screwed up
You're gonna rewind and be kind
This time around
This time

Around, around…

And all you left will be in place
No not a single thing you'd done can get erased
Come back in three days
And face the mess you once denied
Not this time
Not this time

This time around


Around…
