Track Name: Sweet Light
Proven it is
Under the sun
We can be distant but never apart

Proven it is
Under the sun
And away

In this sweet light
Sweet light
Sweet light
Sweet light

Yeah I'm zooming
In this sweet light

In this sweet light
Sweet light
Sweet light
Sweet light

Yeah I'm zooming
In this sweet light
Track Name: I Still Belong to You
Lying down on the grass
Anointed by the stars
Yeah, watching the clouds
Teasing the sky

Well, it comes to my mind
Can I make it stop
With the cry of a howl
Can I bring the storm to a stop

Ears turn into stone
As I speak of you
Birds racing the sky
Missing the point

Hope hungry and cold
Thin to the bones
Can’t prevail to the truth
I still belong to you

And all those times
I swore to the sky
Never to fall for you

I was raving in fire
Bearing the cold for you

Keeping the monsters asleep
Thought I could survive

Now I hear voices bawling the truth
I still belong to you

The wind all suddenly
Comes down to a breeze
Shamans gather around
Lending an ear

I said I’m lying down on the grass
Anointed by the stars
I said I’m lying down watching the stars
Come down from the sky

I said I’ll come, come back to my mind
Just give me some time
I’m feeling better now, I’ll come back to my mind
Just give me some time

And all those times
I swore to the sky
Never to fall for you

I was raving in fire
Bearing the cold for you

Keeping the monsters asleep
Thought I could survive

Now I hear voices bawling the truth
I still belong to you
Track Name: The Charmer
Come and tell me your tale
It brings a light it's said
On those who listen to

Come and tell me the time
You fought with the beast
I'm willing to hear
And get to the gist

Of all that you say
I'm willing to stay
So say as you may
Don't mind me now

Wait now
Is this for real
Or is this a dream
I'm going insane
I'm feeling possessed

I'm sinking to death
I beg you to stop
Oh now
I know it's too late now

Come and tell me your tale
It brings a light it's said
On those who listen to

Come and tell me the time
You rattled the fire
And crumbled the power
Of those who desire you

And reached to the hand
That cures any pain
No matter the stain
No matter what

Will you keep me in chains
No matter what the pain
Will you keep me restrained
No matter how I beg

So come and tell me your story
With battles of glory
Defeating the gory
And bringing the light

I need you to stay
And take my dismay
So say as you may
I'm listening

Wait now
Is this for real
Or is this a dream
I'm going insane
I'm feeling possessed

I'm sinking to death
I beg you to stop
Oh now
I know it's too late now

Wait now
Is this for real
Or is this a dream
I'm going insane
I'm feeling possessed

I'm sinking to death
I beg you to stop
Oh now
I know it's too late now
Track Name: No Safari
Look what I've done
There's nothing to do
There's traces of you
Everywhere I go

If I just knew
The darkness's so dark
I've been more polite
To stay on your side
On your side

Look what I've done
My head is a mess
I'm feeling so scared
To even take a breath

If I just knew
I'd lose for so long
I would've been less a fool
To keep you on my side
Yeah on my side
oh oh oh

Put away that rifle
All this is my fault
All this is my fault

Hunting in the night I feel so high
On the verge of dying this is no safari

Hunting in the night I feel so high
On the verge of dying this is no safari

Los crímienes del amor
Con penas se pagan, condenas que matan

Los crímienes del amor
Con penas se pagan, condenas que matan

Look what I've done
My head is a mess
I'm feeling so scared
To even take a breath

If I just knew
I'd lose for so long
I would've been less a fool
To keep you on my side
Yeah on my side
oh oh oh

Put away that rifle
All this is my fault
All this is my fault

Hunting in the night I feel so high
On the verge of dying this is no safari

Hunting in the night I feel so high
On the verge of dying this is no safari

Los crímienes del amor
Con penas se pagan, condenas que matan

Los crímienes del amor
Con penas se pagan, condenas que matan

Los crímienes del amor
Con penas se pagan, condenas que matan

Los crímienes del amor
Con penas se pagan, condenas que matan
Track Name: Wrote a Letter
I wrote a letter
Such a long letter
Trying to explain
How I miss you babe

I wrote a song
Such a sad song
Trying to express
How I miss you babe

Oh you hurt so much

I wrote a song
Such a sad song
Trying to express
How I miss you babe
How I miss you...

Oh you hurt so much
Track Name: No Genius
Madmen, lovers,
Schizo friends
We all have our ways

Clink your glass
Let’s be glad
We all have our ways

The phone is ringing
Must be the guy
Who says’ a genius

Says he’s as good as Bach
In a cowboy hat
He wants to get laid.

Ok come on
Who cares
We all have our ways

Come on
Who cares
We all have our ways

Come on
Who cares
We all have our ways

Come on
Who cares

He says I look like Simmons
And gives me a book
Cause he’s a fan of Kiss

After he leaves the place
I notice the book
It has a due date

Ok come on
Who cares
We all have our ways

Come on
Who cares
We all have our ways

Come on
Who cares
We all have our ways

Come on
Who cares

He says he has a double neck
He wants me to have
Cause I’m so talented

I gotta go to his place
Pick up the guitar
As he gets naked

Ok come on
Who cares
We all have our ways

Come on
Who cares
We all have our ways

Come on
Who cares
We all have our ways

He says he’ll give me a ride
No matter how far
He’s such a nice guy

He offered me free sex
In the back of his car
He’s such a nice guy

I ended up
With no book
No genius

No ride
Guitar
No genius

I ended up
With no book
No genius

No ride
Guitar
No genius
Track Name: Bad Omen
The chimpanzee is in the house
and everyone is saying that's ok

A crystal broke and nothing more
and everyone is saying it's bringing hell

Oh but not the chimpanzee
I guess nothing's wrong with it

I guess nothing's wrong with it

The universe
Universe
The universe implodes

The universe
Universe
The universe
Universe

Children die and many more
And everyone is saying something's wrong
But there's nothing I can do
Cause there's nothing wrong with me

Cause there's nothing wrong with me

It's all a bad omen
It's all a bad omen
It's all a bad omen
It's all a bad omen

It's all a battle man
It's all a battle o' men
Yeah it's a bad omen
It's all a bad omen
