Track Name: Cold
Deep in my head
I just feel so confused
Trying to find a way
Thinking of my wandering life

Deep in my heart
I just want to breathe
To feel something…
To feel something strong
I’m cold

Deep in the ground
I try to hide myself
To escape from this life
From my life
I’m cold

Deep in my brain
I just feel in such a daze
Trying to find a way
Thinking of my wandering life
Alone
Deep in my chest
I just want to breathe
To feel something…
To feel something strong
I’m cold
Track Name: Darker
Darker than night
Like a cold shadow
Hiding the road
Hiding life

Darker than night
Like an endless tunnel
Digging into me
Digging through my soul

Anyway,
It’s darker than what we know

Darker than night
My body is shaking
Feeling the night
Feeling the stars

Darker than night
Like an endless tunnel
Digging into me
Digging through my soul

Anyway,
It’s darker than what we know
Track Name: 8945
In this story, it all begins with Trinity,
In just three days the Little Boy became Fat Man
God bless science, we’re good to go
Kamikazes are at death’s door

Potsdam and Manhattan project,
What are the justifications,
Where are the phycisists, where are the engineers?
Who picked out the targets, who voted on the time?

A necessary evil, really?
Just a dot on the map
The work of Great Artists

Save our sons’ souls at all costs,
Or threaten the Forces for good,
Justify the billions or simply be a fool,
The reasons are unclear, the fire is mighty

Now the black rain pours on the waste
Atomic pest, the brand new curse.
Hiroshima my love, this is one of a kind,
Welcome to the atomic age, hope you enjoy

A necessary evil, really?
They just look all the same
Nobody can count them

Why in Nagasaki?
Forever in the flesh

Maybe Harry is happy
Fat man and the little boy have blown our dream away
Rain of ruin from the air
Like never on this earth
Do not forget the day.
Track Name: Out of Control
Out of this world, spared from all miseries.
My mind floating, time to live, time to dream.
Far from the noise of the rational world
That reaches me, when the wind blows at night.

I’m the king of fools and fool to the king,

In my mind everything is crystal clear,
I can see my soul and it dazzles me.
Seen from the outside I am a brick wall,
I am a fool, but only in your eyes.

I’m the king of fools and fool to the king,

Gods cannot reach me.
I don’t fear the end.
Fleeing in my dreams.
I dream day by day.
One day is enough,
Today is the one.
No one will change me,
I’m just existing.
Track Name: Endless
Hop on the train
Come on we’re all here
You don’t want to be late
You don’t want to stay alone
Don’t look back now
Come on it’s all fake
You just need to pretend
You don’t want to think that way

You are part of an endless symphony.
No horizon. Only clouds.
No need to know why, when or where... when or where.... Destination nowhere

Hey stay in line
Come on it’s not that hard
You just have to give up
We don’t want to have to hurt you
Behave yourself
Come on be like us
A drop in the ocean
All together in motion
You are part of an endless symphony.
No horizon. Only clouds.
No need to know why, when or where... when or where... Destination nowhere

Something strong, something mad, something loud, something gone

Get off the tracks?
No way, you’re mad!
It has never been done
You won’t live to see it happen
Not on your life
Beware, there are rules
If you think outside the box
Go down to the back of the line

You are part of an endless symphony.
No horizon. Only clouds.
No need to know why, when or where... when or where....
We’re a bolt in the machine, anchored to the floor
All together now, we should have spoken up before
We just want to know why, how, when and where… when and where

Something strong, something mad, something loud, something gone
You are lost, lost to who, not to us, but to you
