Track Name: Love and Desire
You recalled upon your insurance
I called you a liar
It's a really messed up thing
between love and desire

Disoriented bitch, egocentrism only
Why would I care about the fact that you are lonely?

Why why why, I said
Why why why, I said

Now you call it insurance
But i call it fire
So burn my sweat,
'cause you've just lost yourself a buyer

Disoriented bitch, egocentrism only
Why would I care about the fact that you are lonely?

Why why why, I said
Why why why, I said
Track Name: Disclosure
You're sinking into deepness of his cold cold hands
I can see it in your look
That you're thinking "oh man"
He'll put you on the side when he needs to chat with
His boys from the yard
And they are all the same, yeah

All the same, holding balls of fame
All the same, yeah

While chit-chatin' he doesn't have a clue
That the guy beside you is trying to impress you
He gave you a drink with his number on the bill
Saying "Honey you know, I'm from the Upper hill"

But then, things got out of control
'cause your boyfriend saw what we all saw
He came back with his friends and it got all out of hand

Oh Disclosure, was never closer

Instead of dancers, blood is on the floor
Whiskeys are expensive when it's time to go home
That's how it works in this failed town of mine
So please tell me what else can I do
But sit and cry..

Oh Disclosure, was never closer
Track Name: Show me Fire
Hundreds in departure
Opposite of you and l
Rushing
Straight up to the sky

In those times
Your man appeared to be a liar
I concluded
That he lacks the fire

All I see is dusk rising
As the dawn, irretrievably falls
The man will take what he desires
And the boy will kneel all the way

Show me fire, where there's fever
Bored as usual, I start to shiver
Show me fire, where there's fever
Bored as usual, I start to shiver
Show me
Fire, fire, fire, fire..

Hundreds in departure
Opposite of my disguise
Hundred
and forty three will rise

As time flies I feel like some vicious cannibal
Everyone is certain and I feel like an animal
My victim won't even know
I'm here in 2, 1, 0

Show me fire, where there's fever
Bored as usual, I start to shiver
Show me fire, where there's fever
Bored as usual, I start to shiver
Show me
Fire, fire, fire, fire..

Weaved myself a spider's web,
For a long time no one cared
Track Name: Spin my Mind
When I first saw you
I couldn't hide the surprised reaction
Forcing all the boys to look in your direction
I threw away your endless talking
In the corner of my mind
Until I realised I was left behind

Well honey I was impressed
Which resulted with lack of my confidence

Spin my mind
Unzip my pants
Kissing your neck
Untying my Vans

When I came home I felt so stressed
Picturing your hands on my chest
It's so delusional this thinking
My eyes popped out,
I'm freaking
Brain starts to recreate the plans
That pretty girl is gonna be in my hands

Well honey I was impressed
Which resulted with lack of my confidence

Spin my mind
Unzip my pants
Kissing your neck
Untying my Vans
Track Name: Pirate
So we're sitting in this room
And we call it the Frontier Disco.
To be honest it's nothing much,
Nothing to hear, nothing to feel,
Nothing to watch

Someone said everything is nothing,
With the exception of our own creation.
So tell me why I see a pale girl,
Staring down the blind spot
Over above my shoulder?

I guess I just, wanted to be
I guess I just, wanted to be a Pirate.

Between you and me
Stands the pretentious vibrato,
And a fog of mediocrities
Aware of our pain and joy,
That could collide in a bliss.

Here comes the impatient morning,
Your thoughts are undefined.
So you'll decide to stay in bed with me,
'cause It's too late to withdraw the mistakes.

Now i'm waiting for your guns,
I guess there won't be another dance.
I guess my name is Heartless,
Oh c'mon baby fire it...
I guess i just wanted to be a pirate.

I guess I just, wanted to be
I guess I just, wanted to be a pirate.
Track Name: Butterfly
My girlfriend saw the way, out on the light
She taught me how to feel inside
All the pretty butterflies

She's like those trees we saw together
Giving is what it takes to appreciate one another
So when I grasped for air, my girlfriend smiled in despair
She said it's all right

My girlfriend's a butterfly, butterfly...

My girlfriend saw the way, when I was all down
She told me to watch my way, when I looked all frowned

So when I started cutting trees,
Naively she started to ease me (out of it)
Changing herself to please me ('cause I'll regret)
All the pretty butterflies

My girlfriend's a butterfly, butterfly...
Track Name: 8 Rounds
Fifth round of Johnny Walker
Knocked me down to the ground
I can feel it slipping down my guts
But I couldn't tell a word about it

Physically here, mentally somewhere else
Everything around me, doesn't make any sense
And I've already won my battle with fear
But here comes another one
Another round of lies and temptations
Deceiving my mind

Ma, I never felt, it never was my time
My minute of truth,
My sparkling moment to shine
And I'm waiting,
And I'll keep waiting for one to be mine
You may buy the next one let the story unwind

I tripped, tripped over myself
I was tricked, tricked by myself
Ma when I grasped the light they said I went too far
And all that's left is an organ that's torn apart
Ma I revealed my nature got treated like a beast,
A weird creature
So welcome you all in this asylum of mine,
where the Peter's the hook and the butterfly's flying

Ma, I never felt, it never was my time
My minute of truth,
My sparkling moment to shine
And I'm waiting,
And I'll keep waiting for one to be mine
No need to elaborate
It's almost too late, almost too late

No need to elaborate
Death will pay for the eight
Track Name: Anyhow
Like a ghost above my bed
Like a soul that's trying to understand
What's happening in my head

Hear me now, or hear me when
I reach you like
Things haven't changed
Like you are not deranged

Anyhow, anyhow...

You crumbled on your way to reaching us..
There's something about men even I don't understand

Ties were colored in dark red
But you decided to be mad
Fell of that awful tree
You fooled Adam and Eve

Anyhow, anyhow...

Colors of your songs
Should be said as a gesture
To those who have failed to be
As lucky as me

Take control over my fingers
Express your deficiencies
Turn your blank page of truthfulness
Show us no forgiveness

Colors of your songs
Should be said as a gesture
To those who have failed to be
As lucky as me
Track Name: Shallow
Everything is so peaceful
I'm hiding from the moonlight
Under brightly colored parasol
Waiting for conclusions

To reach me, unclog me
From this shallowness
A Satisfaction
Uncertain, dying in vain

Reach me,
I'm dying
From this shallowness
A Satisfaction
Uncertain, dying in vain

You can see stars from here
They are real,
A breathtaking view.
Where were they hiding from me?
I'd tell you In the books for children

Figures are rapidly passing
Until there's nobody left
Besides one boy
Drowning, screaming for help

Reach me, unclog me
From this shallowness
A Satisfaction
Uncertain, dying in vain

Reach me,
I'm dying
From this shallowness
A Satisfaction
Uncertain, dying in vain
Track Name: Heavy Lift
I never thought that I could be
So attracted to your insanity
First i thought it's a gift
Than I realized it's just a heavy lift

My father used to tell me
"Son you gotta find yourself the right one"
I fooled around and played a lot
I did all the things he did not

First I thought it's a gift
Than I realized it's just a heavy lift

That girl right ahead
I met her, and I'm really glad
Call the services and ask for police
Cause she gave me that one big kiss
