Track Name: The Tall Trees
I'll tell you a story about a secret place
Where the dreams are kept and silence reigns

Won't she come back here at my side?
Won't she come to bring me some peace inside?

She said "Please… Turn off the light,
Once and for all let me shine alone…"

I'll tell you a story about tears and love
In another place where the silence reigns
Track Name: Cassiah
If I told you that one day you would drown.
In the arms of, In the shade of a fragile green light.
Open your eyes now, feel the forms fade in the dark.
Open your ears, leave your fears, let the whispers flow inside.

Open your eyes now, let the visions disappear.
All those moments, are lost in the tears, in the rain.
Shattered colors, mirrors distorted, reflecting something stolen.
silent voices, in the stillness of a broken dawn.

Memories fading
Lost in the other side
rain is falling
Run through the dawn, please bring me back down
Everything falling to oblivion.
Trees around me, try to talk to me,
Then everything stops, everything, everything…

Welcome in the silent garden where dreams are kept forever,
Far from black skies above.

There's something, someone, behind me,
Compelling me to carve my name into a piece of wood.
While feeling the blade, sliding down my nape,
I'm crying, I'm feeding the roots.
I die from inside.

Memories fading
Lost in the other side
rain is falling
Run through the dawn, please bring me back down
Everything falling to oblivion.
Trees around me, try to talk to me,
Then everything stops, everything, everything...

Welcome in the silent garden where dreams are kept forever,
Far from black skies above.

"We just found the body, it's in a nasty state.
The body was covered by leaves.
There's a rush of blood which leave the back
and goes down to the left foot.
the eyes are wide open, frozen blue.
My god... there's a big notch in the back.
Wait... something... something luminous... from the body... a sphere full of colors... it's... splendid."

I walk so long asleep, please turn off the light, once and for all.

I see those faces,
So familiar,
Trying to scream,
Try to break free.
They look at me,
They stare...
They cut the rope and let me go..

In my eternal garden.
Track Name: Ocean
Floating underneath a peaceful deep blue sphere,
Your eyes frozen without any fear.
I'm scared by what's below,
Something moving with the flow.
Under my rowboat you shine and disappear.

Two shores have come undone,
There's no way out of here.
You kill the time and realize
You're just another one,
And I'm the other one.

Reflections of my thought abate,
An ocean of regret, our secrets it will take.
And when the moonlight turns the tide,
Without fear we will dance until the end of time.

And as the dark clouds rise above,
Shelter from the storm we linger on,
Until the end of time

Just close your eyes,
Just for a moment,
And drift inside,
with the movement.
I watch the waves move over me, reborn in a new way.
I'm the son of the ocean.

Breathe
the sun
I wait
How long?
Breathe
the light
I found
My way
Breathe
the sun
I wait
How long?
Breathe
the light
I found
My home

Two shores have come undone,
There's no way out of here.
You kill the time and realize
You're somewhere between
Tomorrow and all that could have been
You kill the time and realize you're
just another one...
Track Name: Colors Colapse
Lost in the middle of nowhere,
I stare at the way.
I hear the numbers drawing my future.
I'm feeding a perfect illusion.

Fading,
The colors burn so bright.
I feel alive.
Inner ship with confuse souls,
Thousand voices trapped in motion.
Lost in the countdown,
Falling in an endless hole.

I need you
(face the real)

In the shadows,
Until this broken dawn.
Black door show us the way.
We breathe slowly, our lives in disguise.

I remember the sound,
Alseep we hover over time,
But we don't dream anymore.

I need you
(face the real)
Track Name: Sleepwalker
Lost in my glass prison
Lost in the horizon
A trip that never ends
because something is now broken.

Sleepwalker in front of the screen,
Drinking the pictures of a broken dream.

Blood on my hand,
Stains of the past.
But those memories,
Of the faces,
Have come at last.

Now I will paint the seas...
They'll never know...

But I'm a sleepwalker in front of the screen,
Drinking the pictures of a broken dream.

Sleepwalker in front of the screen,
Drinking the pictures of a broken dream.

Lost in my glass prison
Lost in the horizon
A trip that never ends...
