Track Name: Though Strong
VERSE
Even though strong, I became weak, and now I feel bad that I met you
Surprising is my need to have it again, to touch and to hug over and over again
Refreshing the breed of those who can’t win, and now I feel bad that I met you
There’s only a way out of this junk, to dream and remind that I had it

CHORUS
Hopefully I won’t wait for long
Increasingly, my truth can hold on, hold

VERSE
We’ve been through the sole place that we need
No one more could be like you
Should we breathe and fight closely for it
No one less that could like you
Nothing stronger than me could defeat, could defeat and disguise it
Couldn’t think that we just would repeat.
Making love and reminding

CHORUS
Hopefully I won’t wait for long
Increasingly, my truth can hold on, hold

CHORUS
Track Name: Mellivora
VERSE
I was told one day that I should try more
Fight for what is great, thrive and be much more

Even hide my hate, love and give some more
Caught you in my way, blocking every door

Guess i need, guess i need a break, guess i need a break from this
For i grew sick, for i grew bored, grew bored and sick of you
Well i gotta change, and i need a chance, i need a chance to be
Now I can be what you forbade. Mellivora

CHORUS
We all should know that those who hide now
They wont be judged but will be disclosed
The way you shut the way you drive my
The way my madness can't turn to light
Can't turn to light

VERSE
Guess i need, guess i need a break, guess i need a break from this
For i grew sick, for i grew bored, grew bored and sick of you
Well i gotta change, and i need a chance, i need a chance to be
Now I can be what you forbade

Hiding every day, you just try to mock
Everything i gave, even my teardrops

For a hundred and twenty seven years people fled their souls leaving love and life abroad
No wonder that every now and then empty bodies float adrift whether briefly or endlessly

CHORUS
We all should know that those who hide now
They wont be judged but will be disclosed
The way you shut the way you drive my
The way my madness can't turn to light
Can't turn to light
Track Name: A Green Acrobat
VERSE
The things i don't have. The things i think that i should own
The things i should have. The things i think i should never let be gone
The things i lost them among the things i should have done
And what is left now

CHORUS
Memories of tracks and blows
So now i see i think you just got old

VERSE
The things i don't have. The things i think that i should own
The things i should have. The things i think i should never let be gone
The things i lost them among the things i should have done
And what is left now

CHORUS
Memories of tracks and blows
So now i see i think you just got old
I conceived what now can't grow
So now i seek i seek what laughters throw

CHORUS
Track Name: Act IV
VERSE
So high
Yes it is
Hold tight
So steep

But you'll see. No, cannot see. Can't try

CHORUS
But the freedom that you'll get is so much more than you can have
No man could have just enjoyed that storm, that fear of being lost
Track Name: Can't Jump Now
VERSE
I don't know where to start
You can't help. You're not so smart
To lose again in the end
Run away without nothing to say

CHORUS
So we're just on the place that we need
Don't hide behind
No one can afford and resist
The price you charge just to be
I see that abyss. You can't jump now

VERSE
Why regret. Why feel bad
Lose yourself with no regret

CHORUS
So we're just on the place that we need
Don't hide behind
No one can afford and resist
The price you charge just to be
I see that abyss. You can't jump now
Track Name: The Bait
VERSE
Licking my wounds
Chose what was right
Never thought I would win, never thought that I could be right
Could entice my bait to, could have put my blade just inside

CHORUS:
Loving you Jane was just my pride
Told I was making you feel alright
Let's just obey to our hearts
Flapping my prey shouldn't be nice
The Bait

VERSE
Bleeding my guts
Chose what was wrong
Should've given up and should have been enough to my mind
I just paid the price and I just did enough to go down

CHORUS
Loving you Jane was just my pride
Told I was making you feel alright
Let's just obey to our hearts
Flapping my prey shouldn't be nice

The Bait, was a mistake
Fading

BRIDGE
Enticing is not right
Baiting was not right
Choices that won't last
The price is to blow minds

CHORUS
Loving you Jane was just my pride
Told I was making you feel alright
Let's just obey to our hearts
Flapping my prey shouldn't be nice

Enticing is not right
Baiting was not right
Choices that won't last
The price is to blow minds

The Bait, was a mistake
Fading...
Track Name: Dark Blue Zone
VERSE
The story of a dark blue zone, to call my own, just like old days
This place will make my heart grow old, the mind will betray, carving my

The first forbidden love, remains with it's regrets, made just mistakes
I just create that feeling now, my brand new cure, with a few chords

CHORUS
Paving a way to my world with colors and no one
Misplaced your face inside my creation, my new throne

VERSE
If you allow me to I'll show what I can do. But you already know
I feel I cannot lie, 'cause you're one in millions
Eternally mistake, stuck in love confusion

CHORUS
Paving a way to my world with colors and no one
Misplaced your face inside my creation, my new throne
Track Name: The Fierce, The Brave and The Grim
VERSE
The places I've been, not long ago
Can't wait to be far, so long again
I say don't bring your small talk, stay far away
You plead for mercy and forgive, one more time again

CHORUS
Fell down, jumped from the tallest height now
No pride, can't say that this is better
By now, I found my place in heaven
Can't find
Rose, just, like, those, groves
Fierce, brave, grim

VERSE
Afraid and disgraced, just more one day
Awake and be brave, for your own sake
You may, don't feel that fierce now, don't hide yourself
So close, you say to yourself, grim and sold

CHORUS
Fell down, jumped from the tallest height now
No pride, can't say that this is better
By now, I found my place in heaven
Can't find
Rose, just, like, those, groves
Fierce, brave, grim
Track Name: Prism
VERSE
The light disrupts from the faces you saw at the crowd
A blight occurred from those eyes that you could die for
Prism, every light will keep burning me

You never thought that you could be surprised
Whoever sees contemplates forever that bright
Prism, every light will keep burning me

BRIDGE
How, beautiful one, how do you do it
Cutest one, can you not do it

I can only hope that you feed my song

It doesn't matter whatever I say
I can only hope that you feed my song
Your shiny sight, my blue side
I can only hope, there is only hope
You could never see this like the way I wanna see it
It's not an invention that I love that retention
You could never fell it like the way I wanna feel it
It's not an invention that I'd love a redemption

VERSE
The light still shines, from the faces you saw in the crowd
A vision came, from those eyes that you could die for
Prism, I'm sorry but i can't keep taking this

I never thought that you could ever be mine
Now i see that my prism lies in my mind

Every light will keep burning me
Every light will keep burning me
Track Name: A Moment Of Clarity
VERSE
The finest days went by like seconds while I thought that joy would last
And when the world fell down, eternity was right there before me

I didn't know I could stand that pain you brought me
Didn't think I could be myself again
I can't believe after all this time you're still here
Can't believe how strong i am my friend

CHORUS
I still believe in you
Only this time, differently
Change into something true
What is it there for me
I need a moment of clarity
Trying to let it be

VERSE
Who's to blame and I don't know what's wrong here
Never thought this would be so hard
And when i feel like giving up i still got
The only thing that is always by my side

CHORUS
I still believe in you
Only this time, differently
Change into something true
What is it there for me
I need a moment of clarity
Trying to let it be

CHORUS
