Long Winter 04:59
I've lost myself in a long winter My soul is damned, the spell is cast And the bones are pulverizing fast The wasteland is inside me now Everything I write will burn Until the tide turns Will it ever flourish again? Or only in the end, from my chest After that cold, empty rest I've lost myself in a long winter I've lost myself in a long winter And my heart lingers on Everything I see has no name Time has crossed the line My life is not mine Will the winter ever end? Should I wait for life to go? Leaving my memories below the snow I've lost myself in a long winter I've lost myself in a long winter And my heart lingers on

The Wind 03:22
I know the wind that hits my face It brings the time of a lost place The wind that dries the tears And corrodes the face The wind that tears the years And leaves its trace The wind that blows in my ears Keeps givin' me the chase Maybe one day it will sweep the ashes Like a mute poem I know the wind that hits my face It slows down my weary pace The wind that cleans the scars And ages the eyes The wind that blows and jars While the dust flies To the distant and forgotten stars That'll never rise Maybe one day it will sweep the ashes Like a mute poem Pushed by the westward wind I will touch the sunset Maybe one day it will sweep the ashes Like a mute poem

Whisper to me words that I can't hear I'm still here, with a rainbow near With a hand full of stolen diamonds Far on the hills, with my worn heels And nobody knows what a man feels Nobody believes that I've seen frightened lions Take me to your magic place Where I can see your face covered by lace In the timeless land with my rhymes Leave me there to rot in the deepest grave In my silly rave, without someone to save With all my memories buried in the lost time Wake me up from my nightmares I'll find something worse when I'm awake Wake me up from my nightmares Please don't tell me 'bout today, for old times' sake Then take me on the ocean of lost loves With my cut gloves, under the flying doves, On the silver water now I'm sailin' But the bottom is too shiny to be seen My soul isn't very clean and I'm too lean To be hungry for what is rainin' Smoke's human forms, all around me Laughing at me, even if they can't see Runin' blindly in their lives, they won't stop And they're slowly disappearing in the sunset After I've met them, I don't know where they will get Maybe to my ragged head, when I reach the top Wake me up from my nightmares I'll find something worse when I'm awake Wake me up from my nightmares Please don't tell me 'bout today, for old times' sake

Someone's talkin' about her lover Someone's talkin' about her little girl Someone says she couldn't get it over with But she's not there at all Far away from the picture on the wall But no one remembers The time gone by, not for long Someone's talkin' about her face Someone's talkin' of when she was a child Someone asks: “What was her place?” But she's not there at all Maybe she has only forgotten her shawl But no one remembers The time gone by, not for long Someone asks if her eyes were brown or blue Someone asks if her hair was black or blond Someone forgets and asks: “Who are you?” But you're not there at all You have just got the call But no one remembers The time gone by, not for long Now I'm wondering Who you were not so long ago
5.
The dim light is about to lie down On a cold carpet of fire The wet wind violently sweeps The promises of a liar There is no hope for a rebirth Of the leaves lying in the mire So leave and fall Fall, leaf of the fallin' leaves' fall The fog hides and confuses the world Allowing us to be naive The memory of summer makes us smile And cry, and leads us to believe That it's never too late to relive it again Time leaves and we are not relieved So live and fall Fall, leaf of the fallin' leaves' fall So leave and fall Fall, leaf of the fallin' leaves' fall
