Track Name: So Close & Yet So Far Away
what you see as a wave i see it as a flood
what you see as rain i see it as a storm
what you call home i call it world
what you feel right i feel wrong

it is all different and it's all the same
you say ok and i say no way

we're walking the same road
but we're so close & yet so far away
we're singing the same song
but we're so close & yet so far away

when you shout your thoughts i don't even make a sound
what you think about me i think about you now
who am i? Who are you?
What is new and what is old?
What's the difference between the devil and the god?

it is all different and it's all the same
you say welcome and i say goodbye

we're walking the same road
but we're so close & yet so far away
we're singing the same song
but we're so close & yet so far away
Track Name: Dancing Generation
we're once again surrounded by too many smiling people
but when we close our eyes we feel so empty and alone
we're like strangers , like actors... we're dancers!
And we're dancing all night...alone

passion , confidence , style , beauty , erotism , alcohol , drugs , money
let the dance begin !!

“stay with me my love , hold my hand forever
whisper in my ear the words i want to hear
dance with me my love , offer me another drink
we're strangers in love for one night
but this night will be long...
i hope it will be long...”

you're once again surrounded by the blinding lights of glory
you are the very important person of the night
and you're shining , you're flying , you're dreaming
and you're thinking “oh! my god , what a delight!!”
...but you're crying 'cause you know that you're dead inside


“dance with me my child , housewife , killer , lawyer
touch my body lover , i am out of my mind
tell me jokes and laugh!
Laugh as much as you like!
We're the dancing generation
but we don't know why we dance
please tell me why we dance?
Please tell me why we dance?”

...and as the night slowly slips away ,
the first rays of light appear in the sky ,
reveiling the samefulness of your naked bodies
dance now!! you fools...
Track Name: Lullaby
go to sleep my baby.the night is falling down
i will lay my hands as a pillow , my breath
as a fire , to keep you warm all night
i'll stretch my body around you - a sheild.
So no one can ever get inside

i will tell you stories about kings and queens tonight
fairy tales with happy end. I'll pretend that everything's alright
don't listen to the screams from outside
don't notice the dead around

please pretend 'cause the night is falling down
please pretend 'cause the night is falling down

we're swimming in blood my baby
this night will never end
we're riding on a butterfly wings
into the inevitable end
we are dying out in this rotten place
were no one can ever get outside

let our screams be a lullaby...
Track Name: They
they're all around
they're everywhere
they're coming at night
they're closing the light
they watch us all...

they're in the car
they're in the bar
they're into the streets
they're coming for you
they're coming for me


there is nothing you can do
but wait until they'll come for you
and there is nowhere a safe quiet place
were your thoughts can hide and rest

they know...
time's up.
Track Name: Erased
i got nothing more to say
all my memories are erased
locked inside a golden cage
to the back side of my mind
it seems like i've forgotten
what i've always fought for

everything's rolled up with something cold and faceless
the purpose is lost , my feelings are dimmed , uncoloured and faded
indeterminated...as the days are passing by...

the hours are passing by so slowly
without reason anymore
i don't know what i'm searching for
and the words just won't come out
and my pen is standing still on the paper
and then is falling down to the ground

everything's rolled up with something cold and faceless
the purpose is lost , my feelings are dimmed , uncoloured and faded
indeterminated.
...as the days...
...as the years...
are passing by...
Track Name: Time
decomposing cells in ignition mood
only time will show...and time is what we don't know
unnoticed thoughts into a desperate mind
only time can tell...and time is what we don't understand

the payback of time will come
sooner or later for everyone
everything in its right place
everyone will get what he deserves

time is your heaven
time is your hell
time is a wheel spinning so fast
time is your saviour
time is your god
time's what you fear
begging to stop...


abandoned , shipwrecked , words are not enough
only time heals...and time is always too far
tangent corners of encountered fates
only time knows...and time hides its secrets from us

the payback of time will come
sooner or later for everyone
everything in its right place
everyone will get what he deserves

time is your heaven
time is your hell
time is a wheel spinning so fast
time is your saviour
time is your god
time's what you fear
begging to stop...
Track Name: The Scene Remains
...and you've tried so hard to get on to the top
to see that no one's there
...and all those sleeples nights now have passed away
with no trace of pain
the scene remains the same

a wrong move – a bleeding heart
a distance in between us
an absent face – the love outside
the emptiness inside...

so what is left for you?
For what was it worth?
You tore down a wall
just to find another one behind
nothing changes at all
the scene remains the same

a wrong move – a bleeding heart
a distance in between us
an absent face – the love outside
the emptiness inside...
Track Name: O.K
i see the world from a different view today coz' they've been given me my medicine
and i feel that everything's alright and i hope that i'm ok

i will get out of this place one day , i'll become a businessman
i will get my own wife kids and dogs and they told me that's ok

they are crazy motherfuckers , they are dirty bastard sons
they have fucked out our brains , i hate this fucked up world...

i will fly higher than the moon with my cigarettes (you know...)
i will confess to a priest and god will be clement to me

i will meet my lover in the night and i know that it's ok
coz' i got my wife tied on the bed and my feast is always right

they are crazy motherfuckers , they are dirty bastard sons
they have fucked out our brains , i hate this fucked up world...

i will kill my mother just for fan coz' i saw it to a movie
i will beg the cops down on my knees , i will claim that it was not me

i will fuck and i'll be fucked with everyone , i will get a nervous breakdown
then all my records will swim in gold and i'll be the reachiest person

they are crazy motherfuckers , they are dirty bastard sons
they have fucked out our brains , i hate this fucked up world...
Track Name: Reprise
we're still so close and yet so far away
trying to reach the top , to stop the time
they're all around , watching us all
planning the end , erased we're all

dance with me my love and everything is gonna be ok
we're so close and yet so far away
dance with me my child and i will sing a lullaby
i'll pretend that everything's alright

dancing alone , we're swimming in blood
dimmed , uncoloured , fucked up world
nothing changes at all
this is our hell , this is our heaven
shout your forgotten thoughts and the voices will stop!

dance with me my love and everything is gonna be ok
we're so close and yet so far away
dance with me my child and i will sing a lullaby
i'll pretend that everything's alright

time's up...
