Tracklist

Car Door

length: 4:21

ref: my car door was open
sleep inside was all you have to do
I would have driven you anywhere
anywhere you wanted to
anywhere you wanted to

another sky without a sunrise
my prayers bound to the paper moon
empty streets like broken lifelines
disintegrate into the blue
one more cut and the pain'll be over
I saw it all in your eyes

a lonely heart is desperate often
will trade the world for lullaby

ref

now i still see the bridges burning
as you dance me slow into the flames
the tide of life forever turning
flowing strong the other way
one more cut and this pain'll be over

the blood rose high beneath the skin
we are only made of moments
shooting stars with dreams within

refref: Drzwi mojego auta były otwarte
Jedynie, co musiałeś robić, to spać w środku
Zawiozłabym cię gdziekolwiek
Gdziekolwiek byś chciał
Gdziekolwiek byś chciał

Kolejne niebo bez wschodu słońca
Moje modlitwy powierzone papierowemu księżycowi
Puste ulice niby zerwane liny ratunkowe
Rozpadam się w błękit
Jeszcze jedna rana i nie będzie już bólu
Zobaczyłam to wszystko w twoich oczach

Samotne serce często jest zdesperowane
Sprzeda cały świat za kołysankę

ref

Dziś wciąż widzę płonące mosty
Jak prowadzisz mnie w tańcu prosto w płomienie
Fala życia na zawsze cofnięta
Płynie z wielką mocą w inną stronę
Jeszcze jedna rana i nie będzie już bólu

Krwawa róża głęboko pod skórą
Jesteśmy tylko sumą momentów
Spadającymi gwiazdami z zaklętymi w nich marzeniami

Lovely Fake

length: 2:32
what I keep in my night table drawer
you wouldn't like to know
and you wouldn't wanna see
where I go in my dreams
if I sleep at all

you, you never try to get me
you just wanted to have me
you have me
and you, you don't even taste me
you just eat and digest me

so I compose my cold, beaten bones
into a lovely fake
something nice to be around
something easy to hold
a simple choice to make

you, you never try to get me
you just needed to have me
you have me
and you, you don't even taste me
you just eat and digest me

I hope you don't mind I leave traces behind
a girl in the snow
maybe I'm scared
I won't find my way back
when you finally decide I should go
why, why would you try to get me
when all you need is just a lovely fake
for your wall
I'm liquid running
there's a sea secret in me
it's plain to see it is rising
but I must be flowing liquid diamondsO tym co trzymam w nocnej szafce w szufladzie
Nie chciałbyś wiedzieć.
I nie chciałbyś tego widzieć
Gdzie idę w moich snach
Jeśli w ogóle śpię

Ty, ty nigdy nie próbujesz mnie dostać
Po prostu chciałeś mnie mieć
Masz mnie
A ty, ty nawet mnie nie kosztujesz mnie
Po prostu jesz mnie i trawisz

Więc składam moje zimne, obite kości
W cudowną imitację
Coś miłego od bycia przy tym
Coś łatwego do utrzymania
Prosty typ do zrobienia

Ty, ty nigdy nie próbujesz mnie dostać
Po prostu chciałeś mnie mieć
Masz mnie
A ty, ty nawet mnie nie kosztujesz mnie
Po prostu jesz mnie i trawisz

Mam nadzieję, że nie masz nic przeciwko temu że zostawiam za sobą ślady
Dziewczynkę w śniegu
Może jestem przestraszona
Że nie znajdę mojej drogi z powrotem
Kiedy ostatecznie zdecydujesz, że powinieneś iść
Dlaczego, dlaczego chciałbyś mnie dostać
Gdy wszystko czego potrzebujesz to po prostu cudowna imitacja
Na twoją ścianę
Jestem płynnym bieganiem
We mnie jest morze sekretów
Jest ono dostępne do zobaczenia, wschodzące
Ale ja muszę być przepływającym płynnym diamentem

Hungry Feast of Love

length: 4:07
This is the slowest dance
In the Universe
One step, two steps
Between - an endless wait
I try to walk upon
The broken line of time
Stars spin around me
As I sway from side to side

I'm holding on
To a flake of hope
I've been treated to
On this hungry feast of love

This is the darkest night
Beneath the deepest sea
I'm searching me body again
For your fingerprints
Are you the book I read?
Are you the book I write?
My head is on fire
I'd better learn you by heart

I'm holding on
To a flake of hope
I've been treated to
On this hungry feast of love

Having lost
My way back home
I keep hanging on
In this hungry feast of love...

Halfway Through

length: 3:57
Snow, snow, snow is falling
Eyes blinking, wheels rolling
Driving through the white
Your words get to me
Then fly straight through me
I'm a ghost - you cannot shoot me now

You're losing me
There's nothing you can really do
You're losing me
I'm already halfway through
Halfway through...

Love, love what are you?
Why can't I just keep you
Nailed down to this floor?
Home, home you brought me
A wife made me, a child gave me
Now you're fleeing through the kitchen door

You're losing me
There's nothing I can really do
You're losing me
I'm already halfway through
Halfway through...

oh! But I saw a brilliant light
Oh! The truth I can't deny
Oh! I'm spinning fast towards
Oh! The magnet of his eyes

You're losing me
There's nothing we can really do
You're losing me
I'm already halfway through
You're losing me
I'm falling off the solid rock
Into the blue, into the blue
To him from you
To him

The Chase

length: 4:15
Through the back door of my mind
I go slipping out of time
I go sneaking out of life
To meet him

He's a wolf and I am scared
More and more unprepared
Do I have enough flesh
To feed him?

Do I have enough rope
To tie him to me tight and close?
Eye to eye and bone to bone
For longer

With no bullets in my gun
To the open wild I run
Don't know when and I've become
The wolf's girl

No more sleep and no more rest
Who's the hunter on this chase?
Losing fast my human self
Letters dropping off my name

Holly waters rain on me
Burn my eyes and make me see
Stop me running, break my knees
Have mercy

Now the Moon is on the rise
I feel the twitching in my thighs
From within the heart of night
He calls me

No more sleep and no more rest
Who's the hunter on this chase?
Losing fast my human self
Letters dropping off my name

No more sleep and no more rest
Who's the hunter on this chase?
Teeth marks on my milky throat
To the wolf I belong

You Change Me

length: 3:43
You change me
I fall in love with myself by your side
I want to be your fingers, your eyes
I want to bring the light out
In everything around

You change me
I didn't know I really was a bird
My song was just too quiet to be hard
You come, you out me open
And it burst into the air

And if we are here for a while
Then who needs forever?
If I'm just a cloud in your sky
Let the wind blow
And change me

You change me
With foreigh waters you reshape my soul
You put me on the waves and I'm afloat
I rise above the fear
And I am not afraid to fall

And if we are here for a while
Then who needs forever?
If I'm just a cloud in your sky
Let the wind blow
And change me

Glass of Water

length: 3:32

As we carry each other on our backs
Trying hard to move ahead
Across the space
And along the time
We've been given

As we struggle against another wall
Making love, making wars
Craving more
Cheap miracles
To believe in

Where do we go from here?
Will there be a song for us to sing?
Will there be a tree to rest beneath?
A glass of water to quench these earthly needs

'I've got you, you have it all' - you say
'Trumpet playing angels pave your way'
But you won't know
What price I pay
For their music

In the end we all meet in one room
Dead men walking with no clue
Blurry eyed
So surprised
To be losing it

Where do we go from here?
Will there be a song for us to sing?
Will there be a tree to rest beneath?
A glass of water to quench these earthly needs

Noisy Head

length: 3:34
Noisy Head, oh Noisy Head
Why don't you give it a break?
I can hear you from here, oh I can feel
Your thoughts coursing deep in my veins
Your shiny shoes clicking with confidence
As you speed through the corrdors
Of your different lives, your fancy lies
How do you keep track of them all?

I made a little grave for you
Right at the heart of my heart
I gave to the birds the remains of you
Still, you just don't want to die...

Noisy head, oh noisy head
So, why don't you tell me once more
What was it really all about?
I don't think I can rest till I know
There on the floor of your hiding place
There in the bright morning light
I would swear I could feel you shine through me
Your wedding ring drowned in wine

I made a little grave for you
Right at the heart of my heart
I bring you flowers and sing for you
Still, you just don't want to die...

Here winter came and slowed my pace
And painted my memories with frost
Noisy Head, oh Noisy Head
Why don't you just let it go?

Hard Land of Wonder

length: 4:56
In the 33rd year of her journey
She hits the hard land of wonder
That nothing prepared her for
And the guide books go blank and quideless
And the guiding lights are holes in the darkness
And parachutes won't unfold

It's her birthday - the candles are burning
And the memories keep returning
Glossy postcards from some other life
She reopens her box of glory
But she can only see blossoms falling
How the gravity brings things down

Am I the river, or am I the boat?
There's swirly dark water wherever I go
Am I the paper, or am I the pen
Possessed and driven
By some Greater Hand...?

So tired of constant trying
In the red eye of another day dying
She sees beauty she'll never embrace
Stillhaunted by phantoms of freedom
She turns to the innocent wisdom
Engraved in her daughter's face

Am I the river, or am I the boat?
There's swirly dark water wherever I go
Am I the paper, or am I the pen
Possessed and driven
By some Greater Hand...?

So, could it be love is all that matters
That rough pillow of splinters and feathers
No one ever can rest upon?
As she follows the smell of roses
Is she choosing or being chosen
Moving closer or farther from home?

Am I the river, or am I the boat?
There's swirly dark water wherever I go
Am I the paper, or am I the pen
Possessed and driven
By some Greater Hand...?

Sailor's Song

length: 2:48

Underneath the velvet layers
Of the blackest night
There's a slow flame burning
And its glory never dies
Hold on to its light, my Sailor
It will bring you home
You've been long gone missing
Let the sea release your soul
But the Sailor kept sailing

On and on into the void
On and on into the dark
With a fake star as his guide
And the slow flame kept burning
Right before the sailor's eyes
But he was blind

Farewell my deserted dreamings
Silver dust on you
May the green embrace you
May the violet soak you through
He won't even hear me call
Spells I cast in vain
For his heart's gone liquid
It's made of salt and icy waves
And the sailor kept sailing

On and on into the void
On and on into the dark
With a fake star as his guide
And the slow flame kept burning
Right before the sailor's eyes
But he was blind

The Trial

length: 4:01
I cannot sleep
So I go outside
Into the night
I climb the hill
And standing still
I watch the streets
Tillthey become
A tangle of snakes
With red and white
Spines of light
Oh, how they shine
Through the dark!
So I reach out
And I catch one
For myself
I rush back home
And put it straight
Into our bed
Hoping it
Is not too late
To illuminate
This ashadow that
Covers our love
I undress, lie down and I wait
But the shadow is so great!
The shadow devours the snake...
You're asleep
Breathing deep
I'm wide awake
