Track Name: Introspective
Introspective your lives
they, well-deserve the "funny" title
you need oil to lift your arms
don't have illusions, it's our time

all our troubles now are past
this english winter is our last
and i see you'd ask me "why?"
but i can't hear you for thousands cry

take the frist train when the morning lights
come, it's your last chance to greet the sun
we take both cash and credit cards
chill, cause we're just about to begin

all our troubles now are past
this english winter is our last
and i can see you'd ask me "why?"
but i can't hear you for thousands cry

all our troubles now are past
this english winter will be our last
and if you laughed, cause you think it's just "hype"
well, i can"t see here anyone smile...
Track Name: 1980
26 years in the make
it took 1 year to blow away
and everthing has changed around here
heroes threw their lives away
han solo's bound to freeze in pain
and education came to drown me

i had to see tomorrow
i must have stayed
didn't you care for anyone?
or is it just fate?

this year nothing seemed fun
then we've spent 8 years in the dark
then everything has changed again here
i tried to take advice from mum
and didn't mess with Major Tom
but couldn't get clear transmission from here

i have to see tomorrow
i'm here to stay
i have to care for someone
or what's my fate?
i had to see tomorrow
i must have stayed
didn't you care for anyone?
or is it just fate?

(do you think you got through? did you tell you had to tell?)

you're keep saying, this 80s thing
it's there in everything i sing
but please stop saying for this year
embodies everything i hate

you're keep saying, this 80s thing
it's there in everything i've sung
but please stop saying for this year
started everything i hate

(do you think you got through? did you tell you had to tell? do you think i got through? did i tell i have to tell? )
Track Name: Coded
i am thicker than a wall
but you're exceptional
you can see me
when you need your fix from me

and if you try just hard enough
you can take me home
but what you add
is what you get from me, so

tell me
do you really want to have the key?
In 2023
will you still remember me?

if you call me liar
i take it as a compliment
if you call me nice
i take it as a lie

let me explain for the second run
(nothing personal)
what you hear and
what you see is coded
a bit pretentious, yes i know
but it's easier
than to look back
and to face what i did

tell me
do you really want to have the key?
In 2033
i'd be shocked still being here
Track Name: Select all, delete all
maybe you planned it, maybe you were blind,
still, you're missing the point
i chose to burn in the eternal fire
still, i can't get through
what i have to do, is to

select all/delete all

i know one day, i face me in a child
but we both have to grow
but i'd love now
to poke your sea eyes
yes, i'd love to hurt you
before i get through, i

select all/delete all
Track Name: Brazil
here's our story, it must be told
keep it or burn it for everemore
can't let you wait for ages
until you finally find yourself

the support is here
accept my help
to understand
see what life is for

so i'm waiting every day
for an invitation to your soirée
my doubts have gone, you're my man
so will you be my snow princess?

support this man
i need your help
to understand
what your life is for

listen carefully
my affection for you is genuine
if you feel for me
it's more than mutual sympathy
trust in me
cause it will be late
and i won't be sorry
it's a chance you can't miss
we can achieve just anything

can't you see?
it's more than a mutual sympathy
if you feel for me
then we should fly to brazil
trust in me
cause it will be late
and i won't be sorry
it's a chance you can't miss
we can achieve just anything
Track Name: Treading water
take me to the playing orphans
so i can see
this time i really feel too old
time is passing, but nothing changes -
or is it me?
feels like i'm treading water

face the pain, is what i'm taught
but when i lost my face, then where to go?
take this as a final note
you'll survive, she said
but it'll never be the same

shove me into the icy river
so i can feel
something didn't happen long ago
i can go out, pretend i'm OK
but what for?
can tell if it's spring or autumn

face the pain, is what i'm taught
but when i lost my face, then where to go?
take this as a final note
seasons maybe change
but i always dream the same

i never wished to spend
the life i never had
as often as i can
i'll stay alone

so i rather make no plans
cause life's what others have
as often as i can
go with the flow
Track Name: Welcome to CIA
well, no one will see it, if you're gonna just sit here
"welcome to my life"
it stands in my diary
i know that you wanted
to say that i'm clever
but i'm not a loser
to waste our time in any way

try to not to think such a cliché it is
"there's beauty in the beast"
i ask you try to see:

here i am, never seen as a man
you shouldn't be so keen
to explain why you don't want me
here i am, silently in pain
i tell to me, i'm used to this
so why do i feel i'm missing something?

well no one will see it, or are you gonna just sit there?
and welcome to CIA -
i spy on you every day
i know what you wanted
to tell 'bout my mother
but i'm not going to let you
to spoil with words, this summer day
Track Name: Simon says
wake from your apathic slumber
or are you numb?
i'm here to make myself public
before i'm gone

simon says

because we weren't the only ones
thinking the same
i know that you will get along
our life's just a phase
or do you want to carry on?
there're too many days
and everyone i should have loved
have left me for years

that's why you never hear me sing
a sad love song
it's me, professional at hurting
just anyone

simon says

because you are the only one
hearing me say
the stories that i should have told
are kept locked away
but i can't do this anymore
there's too much weight
if you want me to carry on
we must be for real

simon says
Track Name: Father
remember the days
with our long walks
the french magazines,
those chocolate bars
seems to me like yesterday
but it's 6 years now, since you've gone

there're different ways
to uncover the past
there're different ways
to cope with loss
my sister says
you live in me
should i be proud, or desperate?
Track Name: My final plea
here we are at the ending
pieces of me everywhere
i know for some it's upsetting
but no one sees me like he can

can you help, express it
the way i feel about myself
my job isn't easy
i'm full of hate and regrets

for i've used up all my wishes
for ages
now there's only one wish left
please let me rest

here we are and i'm planting
hints and clues everywhere
will you help me stop this
just name the place i'll be there

for i've used up all my wishes
for ages
there's only one wish left
please let me rest

....so i made it to the west
like in the book it stands
to find my answers in the sand
but i found nothing there
there's only one thing i'm aware
my cruise will never end
for some never find their path
cause they don't even have
she said she warned me as a friend
and then she vanished once again
so what's the point in having friends
when nothing ever helps
and i know some of you out there
wait for the last thing i ever say
but if there's one thing i can't tell
if i ever will be back again

and then one day, in 16 years
you'll get everything i sang
i won't be there, to explain,
but you'll have my final plea

you will have this final plea
