Track Name: Long Winter
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
Track Name: The Wind
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
Track Name: My Nightmares
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
Track Name: She's Not There At All
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
Track Name: The Fallin' Leaves' Fall
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
