Track Name: Athlete
ATHLETE
To win and lose -
a thousand times.
Climb all the steps
of an endless stepped podium.
Why showing cups
to lousy men
who's craving for
the moment of your failure?

To be idolized
by silly words
of passers-by
while sweating blood from your skin.
You'll never choose
your enemies.
The worst you have
is watching by the mirror now.
Track Name: A Quiet Life
A Quiet Life

While I'm sitting in this room
The chance will throw its dice, anyway.
Fate will shuffle all the cards.
While I'm sitting in this room
imprisoned in a showcase
a window slams
on a on

Never doubt
Never state
Never leave impressions
Your warning
for me
doesn't warn me at all
at all
at all…

I've got a straight line
in the side of my hairdo
Saucers under cups
and tissues.
No shoes indoor, please
Obsessed? me? no way...
at all
at all
i'm just tidy
at all...
Track Name: Waiting Room
Waiting Room

Far, inside a hall
like a sort of intuition
a naked sound into the void
breaks the clean light of day

Marble stairs that climb
into an empty building
where behind every door, (again)
a feeling seems to fade

This endless
angst
dissolves
the will
to find oneself
and the eternity
as one
turns into a far
grey shade
and then vanishes
at all

Everything
relates to me
Nothing less
than my reflection

Further than you could say
the mirrored image
of this times
reveals the face
of true desire
somewhere,
you should guess why...
you should guess why...
Track Name: Backstroke
Backstroke

Seven years
Slept away
in the wake
of a new begin

never aim
to a goal,
Just filling up the void
of an endless sense of loss

Beneath this chilling silence
A step forward
Is a step back
Must see where I began
To move on one more time.

I'm the same
who get lost
You can fight with your own nature
but it never looks so good.

Beneath this chilling silence
A step forward
Is a step back
The abyss underneath
Blue skies upon the tide

A stir of hope
a flame that burs inside
a struggle I'm ready to get in.
is it enough?
Enough as every time,
To fail and /to be shot down,
and then stand up and fight
fight, fight all the time!
Track Name: 5 am
5am

Breathing in a city
on a bedroom corner
something smashes hard
under my skin
as every day.
Livid eyed-Messiah
moaning to my heart,
I've strangled every feeling
in the bath tub.

Serial actions run
on a serial day:
they should save me from a faster death
than this one.
Getting older soon,
getting in the way
of the emotional aversion
in an ordinary day.

Bare Light
rattlesnake of fever
Cold Morn
should be on the way
Smo/ther
every light or shadow
Un/der
the demeanour of the day.

Bare Light
shoulders in a mirror
Cold skin
fading into grey
Stand
still
freezing on a shiver
Num/ber
on an ordinary day.
