Track Name: Traveling Soul
Traveling soul, where you're gone now
Traveling roads way down
Traveling soul, wherever you're gone now
Travel the road safely home

And we're aiming for sunlight and smiling eyes
And we're aiming for a truth to be found
And we're aiming for a gathering and walking
The same way around

And we're aiming for the flowers that used to be
And we're aiming for the shadows of may
And we're aiming for a new start-line
Coming along our way

Traveling soul, where you're gone now
Traveling roads way down
Traveling soul, wherever you're gone now
Travel the road safely home

(repeat chorus)
Track Name: Daydreams
I love the daydreams and the sunrise
Don't like the walls and sudden loops
I'm dreaming all along the seaside
I'm dreaming all inside of you

My daydreams are killing my nights
(repeat)

Once the ship has left the anchor
And is gone to meet the shore
Let the ship go take adventures
If the captain asked for more

My daydreams are killing my nights
(repeat)

I'll meet you there inside your daydream
I'll meet you there inside your head
And while we're there inside your daydream
I had you warned, my night is dead

My daydreams are killing my nights
(repeat)
Track Name: Tales
They smile and they laugh and they talk
The words are loud and old
And will be soon forgotten memories
Rolling again on that old lonesome train tonight

No raindrop, no hail and no storm
No cloud is hiding the sky
Still the moonlight seems pale to me
Rolling again on that old lonesome train tonight

Reaching out for the tales in the back of my mind
Reaching out for that old lonesome train tonight

Sleep tight, may your blanket be warm
The moon right over my head
Is the same that shines upon you now
Showing the way on that old lonesome train tonight

Reaching out for the tales in the back of my mind
Reaching out for the words and every name I can find
Seeing all fade away into the oceans of time
While I'm stuck on that old lonesome train tonight
Track Name: Swimming
Just a little moment and we're rising,
Yes we're rising you'll see
Just a few more words and we'll be rising,
Yes we're rising probably

And if you thought we were wrong
Then we're rising you and me
And if you thought we were strong
Then there's nothing more to say for me

I wish I could breathe under the see
Or spread my wings and fly at least
Let the pain fade under me
Somewhere and somehow
If we'd only let us be
If we'd only let us be

And there's nothing that can't be done
If we don't annoy ourselves
And no battle that can't be won
If there's anyone left who cares

And we could go just like dolphins back to the see
And we could go back to the water
Where we're free from our weight

I wish I could breathe under the see
Or spread my wings and fly at least
Let the pain fade under me
Somewhere and somehow
If we'd only let us be
If we'd only let us be

(repeat chorus)
Track Name: Rainchild
I'm calling the rain like never before
It won't heal no pain, I'm even ready for more
All that is grey shall be floating away
Along with the shore

I'm calling the rain to clean up my shirt
I'm not afraid of any sickness or dirt
All that is grey shall be floating away
Along with the shore

They call me the Rainchild
It crawled in my bones and blinded my sight
Holding me jammed and holding me tight
Feeling your love like a motherless child

I'm calling the rain as loud as I can
I'm calling in vain like the songs that I sang
All that is grey shall be floating away
Along with the shore

They call me the Rainchild
It crawled in my bones and blinded my sight
Holding me jammed and holding me tight
Feeling your love like a motherless child
Track Name: I Wanna Betray Myself
I wanna betray myself
With my own fantasy
I wanna forget myself
And feel nothing but ecstasy

Maybe there's a place somewhere
Where no pain can be
Maybe we all got that place somewhere
Just afraid to set it free

Maybe there's a place somewhere
Where spirits are free
Maybe we all got that place somewhere
Just afraid to set it free

I wanna betray myself
With my own fantasy
I wanna forget myself
And feel nothing but ecstasy

(repeat last verse)
Track Name: Sweet Holy Road
Let me hold your breath for a minute in silence
Even if the train is on the wing
Far away from home and the dirty violence
The evening's warm and flowers sing

And I'm looking above city roof and lightening
Coming from the signs and neon walls
And I better escape before I start the fighting
Can't put out a fire with canon balls

Sweet holy road
When ever trouble comes along you're on my mind
Sweet holy road
I guess I'm writing you a song from time to time
Sweet holy road
Are gonna be remembering my name
Sweet holy road
Shall we meet again

And I'm looking above city roof and lightening
Coming from the signs and neon walls
And I better escape before I start the fighting
Can't put out a fire with canon balls

Sweet holy road
When ever trouble comes along you're on my mind
Sweet holy road
I guess I'm writing you a song from time to time
Sweet holy road
Are gonna be remembering my name
Sweet holy road
Shall we meet again

Let me hold your breath for a minute in silence
Far away from home and the dirty violence
And I'm looking above city roof and lightening
Coming from the signs and neon walls
And I better escape before I start the fighting
Can't put out a fire with canon balls

Sweet holy road
When ever trouble comes along you're on my mind
Sweet holy road
I guess I'm writing you a song from time to time
Sweet holy road
Are gonna be remembering my name
Sweet holy road
Shall we meet again
Track Name: Hey Little Brother
Hey little brother, our fathers 'gone mad
They're selling in the name of god
First I was amazed , like all the other kids
Starring at a church full of mud
Then I saw candles with signs on the wall
“The small one's two bucks, the big is eight”
Then I was wondering, how far have we walked
Away from wisdom and faith

Hey little brother, our fathers 'gone mad
They're killing in the name of god
I used to look the same way with bright and twinkling eyes
At a statue that's been covered with mud
On both sides the arms are getting loaded in His name
On both sides I hear “God is great”
Maybe their god is just simply the same
Or maybe it's just not about faith

Here stops my vision, and I couldn't see that much
Hardly awake in my sleep
Every night I think of my last dream
What it could mean to me
Stand on my feet and look out of my screen
Wondering who's starring at me
Always the same face, but not the same way
Wondering what does it see
Track Name: More
I heard the story of a terrible fight
Flames 'been running down a house last night
When I saw the place the fire was out
But I couldn't help from screaming out loud

They've been burning down the house right next door
I thought I was leaning on the edge of a shore
But some guardian angle like many times before
Thought that I'm someone who's meant to see more

If my life had always been an easy game
I'd never be as strong as I became
So come what may, come storm or come rain
I know each winter turns into spring some day

They've been burning down the house right next door
I thought I was leaning on the edge of a shore
But some guardian angle like many times before
Thought that I'm someone who's meant to see more

They've been burning down the house right next door
I thought I was leaning on the edge of a shore
But some guardian angle like many times before
Thinks that I'm someone who's meant to see more

(repeat chorus)
Track Name: Rescue
Can't get it rescue' now
'Cause everything is running so fast
But I don't wanna see you running down
So let me remove the past

Get on with this battle that killed the garden
Get on with this battle in the sky
Get on with this battle that killed
All the meaning of meaningless life

Come along and rescue
Who's not able to survive
Come along and rescue who you need

Come along and rescue
Who's not able to survive
Come along and rescue who you need

(repeat all)

Come along and rescue who you need
Come along and rescue who you
Come along and rescue who you
Come along and rescue who you need
Track Name: Old Man Song
Hey barman, how (have) you got there
In that lonesome place
It's been years now since you've died
And he said
Well I'm weak now, and I'm tired
I feel twice my age
And I wont go back to fight

In that lonely place
Ain't no surprises at all
And all that foolish rage
Was 'bout to make me fall

In that lonely cage
Ain't no surprises at all
After all the years of rage
My time of peace has come

Hey me there in that mirror
In that lonesome cage
It's been years now since we've died
How have we got there in that future that we once denied
Has the reason been erased

In that lonely place Ain't no surprises at all
In that lonely cage Ain't no surprises at all
Track Name: Afraid Of The Dark
My story has never been told
Will it rise when I grow old
Or be buried under some tree
Giving life to what I'll never be

Is my hair already grey
Am I the one who never may
See the light that I once knew
Only 'cause I cared for you

Oh let it shine somewhere
Oh let it be somewhere
Please don't let it fall apart
'Cause I'm afraid of the dark
'Cause I'm afraid of the dark

Is the light already gone
Oh my Lord, but I'm not done
Let me finish what I began
Before I sink in the sand

It already touched my chin
Oh I never have felt that thin
Will I ever rise again
And become that shining man

Oh let it shine somewhere
Oh let it be somewhere
Oh let it shine somewhere
Oh let it be somewhere
Please don't let it fall apart
'Cause I'm afraid of the dark
'Cause I'm afraid of the dark

And I sure can understand
How you're letting down my hand
But remember how I have fought
For our life with every thought

Oh let it shine somewhere
Oh let it be somewhere
Oh let it shine somewhere
Oh let it be somewhere
Please don't let it fall apart
'Cause I'm afraid of the dark
'Cause I'm afraid of the dark
