Track Name: I'VE BEEN WATING FOR YOU
Promises are turning pale
Stars are bleaching
My wounds are still breathing

Fading away Fading away

I’ve been waiting for you to save my world
So why don’t you lick my soul
get rid of my ghost
Track Name: I AM READY
Feel my hand over my face
Taste of me over your lips
Feel my skin under my hair
I am another me

Feel your hand over my face
Taste of me over your lips
Take my hand
Take me away

I am ready for a trip on the moon
I am ready for a trip on the moon

Feel my hand over my face
Take me here
I am again
I am ready for a trip on the moon
I am ready for a trip on the moon

Cause I wanna dive
Cause I wanna fly
Cause I wanna dive

We are made of the same star
Track Name: GOD'S GONNA CUT YOU DOWN
You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time

Sooner or later God'll cut you down
Sooner or later God'll cut you down

Go tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider

Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down

Well my goodness gracious let me tell you the news
My head's been wet with the midnight dew
I've been down on bended knee talkin' to the man from Galilee

He spoke to me in the voice so sweet
I thought I heard the shuffle of the angel's feet
He called my name and my heart stood still
When he said, "John go do My will!"

Go tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter

Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down

You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later God'll cut you down
Sooner or later God'll cut you down

Well you may throw your rock and hide your hand
Workin' in the dark against your fellow man
But as sure as God made black and white
What's down in the dark will be brought to the light
You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later God'll cut you down
Track Name: 50 BULLETS FIRED IN QUEENS
Take me to New York
i’m away from Rome

Oh what a nice the neighborhood
where the cops like to shoot

on the streets
in QUEENS

50 bullets and you’re safe
you are a hero
you’re so brave

Take me to New York
Oh what a nice the neighborhood

where the cops like to shoot
on the streets
in QUEENS

50 bullets and you feel safe
you are a hero
you’re a slave
Track Name: BURQA
I feel in the air
Like dust in the air
My hurt plea is just a little game

The city is on fire
The city is on fire

I feel in the air
Like dust in the air
My hurt plea is just a little game

Who’s the real criminal
Who’s the real criminal

Everyone has a fault
Violence is a fault
Ignorance is fault
The West has a fault

Please stop the bomb stop the blood
I don’t want to feel guilty
Kids are crying down the road
Kids are crying down the road
Track Name: IN THE SUN
In the mud in the sun I feel
Like I’m trapped in the ice
wanna get rid of my mind
I’m really tired
But I can’t sleep
Can’t even breath
I’m almost bleeding
I’m licking
in the dark my weepings
in the mud in the sun I’m almost sinking
in the sun I feel like I’m trapped in the ice
like a sweat in a bad dream
in a bad memory
Track Name: I TUOI OCCHI SONO PIENI DI SALE
I tuoi occhi sono pieni di sale
i tuoi occhi sono pieni di sale
di quel sale mattutino che tu prendi in riva al mare
di quel sale che a pensarci ti viene voglia di guardare
Le tue labbra sono piene di sale
le tue labbra sono piene di sale
di quel sale mattutino che tu prendi in riva al mare
di quel sale che a pensarci ti vien voglia di baciare
Il tuo corpo è pieno di sale
il tuo corpo è pieno di sale
di quel sale mattutino che tu prendi in riva al mare
di quel sale che a pensarci ti vien voglia di sognare
La tua mente è piena di sale
la tua mente è piena di sale
di quel sale mattutino che tu prendi in riva al mare
di quel sale che a pensarci ti vien voglia di pensare
Amo il sale della terra amo il sale della vita
amo il sale dell'amore amo il sale che c'è in te
Track Name: BACK INTO MY MOTHER'S WOMB
I’m back into my mother’s womb
Oh it’s so warm

It’s brighter then the street
Where my friend was killed
For a pocket full of dreams

I’m back into my mother’s womb
Oh it’s so warm
It’s brighter then the room
Of when I’m all alone with you
Track Name: PROMISES
Words
Words and expressions
All these confessions
Of where we stand
How I see you
And you see me
Dedications of symmetry
Together we will be
forever.
Promises are shit
We speak the way we breathe
Present air will have to do
Rearrange and see it through
Stupid fucking words
They tangle us in our desires
Free me from this give and take
Free me from this great debate
Promises are shit
We speak the way we breathe
Present air will have to do
Rearrange and see us through
Stupid fucking words
They tangle us in our desires
Free me from this give and take
Free me from this great debate
You will do what you do
I will do what I do
We will do what we do
Rearrange and see it through
Go where you think you want to go
Do everything you were sent here for
Fire at will if you hear that call
Touch your hand to the wall at night
Promises.
Track Name: MEDICINE
Where is my medicine?
I thought I could ask you for this

I love to swallow it
Makes me forget of everything

Where is my medicine?
I thought I could ask you for this

I need to swallow it
Makes me forgive of everything

Cause butterflies don’t grow old
And rain dogs are not alone
Rain dogs are not alone
Track Name: SILENCE
I thought you were so beautiful
But i was so wrong and too pure
But i know we’d better be in silence

Silence
I must fall asleep
Fall asleep in your arms

I just wanna dream till the end of sin
I just wanna dream till the end of sin
I must fall asleep
Fall in silence
Silence
