Track Name: Casimir
I feel small … …
If only I could change it all the cruelty of gravity

In the narrow sense
They can predict the force of our neutral souls
Hopeless since then…
As the strength falls off with distance…

I feel small … …
If only I could change it all
The cruelty of gravity
The cruelty of gravity

Far away from home
You could feel this force becomes so strong
A dominant force between the uncharged conductors of our souls

I feel small … …
If only I could change it all
The cruelty of gravity
The cruelty of gravity

In the narrow sense
They can predict the force of our neutral souls
A dominant force between the uncharged conductors of our souls
I feel small … …
If only I could change it all
The cruelty of gravity
The cruelty of gravity
Track Name: The Day Our Whole World Went Black
He gives me all the world and exiles me from it.
I’m left to drift in outer space…

There is a hole in the world,
Which we find ourselves constantly walking around in the daytime,
and falling in, at night.
suddenly we find ourselves in the midst of the world,
With no idea where we’re going

Each day seemed exactly like the last
Even though we were in motion,
it seemed as if nothing special ever happened to us

Everything we took for granted.. slipped… through it… like sand…
That was the day our whole world went black…

(Based on Edna St. Vincent Millay prose)
Track Name: Completely Human
Warm my bones on that fire… for a while
Kill my soul… of desire… pretty liar

Do love me and let me hate you for a while.
Let me feel like I have some control… because I know I never do.
Because I know I never do.

In this life I search
In this life I search
In this life I search
To feel, to laugh,
To give, to take,
To get lost, to be found,
To love to lust,
To be so human… to be so human… to be so human…
Completely human
Completely human
Completely human

Warm my bones on that fire… for a while
Kill my soul… of desire… pretty liar
To feel, to laugh,
To give, to take,
To get lost, to be found,
To love to lust,
To be so human… to be so human… to be so human…
Completely human
Completely human
Completely human
Track Name: Die For You Or By Your Hand
I can wait for a lifetime
But you’re gone carry that weight
Afford the shadow
Of the pleasure which exists in pain

You’re Master…of disaster
You’re Master…of disaster…

Would I die for you…
Or by your hand?
Would I die for you…
Or by your hand?

Cause nobody slap me to let go
I’ve been travelling for too long
But I still remaining here keep waiting at the quayside

You’re Master…of disaster
You’re Master…of disaster…

Would I die for you…
Or by your hand?
Would I die for you…
Or by your hand?

A sweat taste that leave your lies
A sweat taste that leave your lies
A sweat taste that leave your lies
Track Name: The World In Your Hands (The Spirit Of The Staircase)
Hide in the dark room
Hide in the back room
She whispers

Hurt… I want you
To hurt me….
I want you
To hurt me….
I want you

Can’t you see… I’m drowning?
Τhe spirit of the staircase found me dead the next morning
To all those things I couldn’t say...
My darkest hours are here to stay
L’esprit de l'escalier
L’esprit de l'escalier

Can’t you see, I’m drowning?
Τhe spirit of the staircase found me dead the next morning
To all those things I couldn’t say...
My darkest hours are here to stay
L’esprit de l'escalier
L’esprit de l'escalier
Can’t you see, I’m drowning?
Track Name: Ocean Of Doubts
Every time… I go on… I see you lying down
Lying down… on a strange ground
Your favorite game
While patience runs out…

Looking for salvation
Starving for your Skin
Failed communication
Rolling into deep…Rolling into deep… Rolling into deep…
Ocean of doubts
Ocean of doubts
Ocean of doubts…

I put my trust in no man’s hand …
Should I pretend?
Now guide my thoughts
You are the devil in the details…
You have no power on me... are you listening???

Looking for salvation
Starving for your Skin
Failed communication
Rolling into deep…Rolling into deep… Rolling into deep…
Ocean of doubts
Ocean of doubts
Ocean of doubts…

You have no power on me…
You have no power on me….
Track Name: Rat Park
The biggest traps are the ones we set for ourselves
In our rat park, we play every midnight
And in the dawn I guess we crawl…
Back to the cave we came from

My inspiration wants to meet you
It shivers down my spine...
Draws circles all around you
And challenge you to bite my head off

Like a cosmic tapestry
Woven in the loom of heaven,
We seeing the underside,
But nobody seeing to top
Nobody seeing to top

My inspiration wants to meet you
It shivers down my spine...
Draws circles all around you
And challenge you to bite my head off

Challenge you to bite my head off
Track Name: Instincts
What’s casts you into the wind, sets you ablaze,
Makes you burn through the skies and ignite the night like a phoenix
The kind that cuts you lose like a wildfire.
Like a wildfire.

Nice jewelry and a boy’s corpse. Oh you're so pretty...you’re so pretty…
I guess it's not your fault.
I guess it's not your fault.
I guess it's not your fault.

When old men dreaming up wars for you to die in
For you to die in
For you to die in
I guess it's not your fault.
I guess it's not your fault.
I guess it's not your fault.

It’s only a scratch, don’t cut my arm off…
It's the only a good fight my love…my love…
is written in our instincts
Is written in our instincts
Is written in our instincts

In our instincts
I guess it's not your fault.
In our instincts
I guess it's not your fault.

It’s only a scratch, don’t cut my arm off…
It's only a good fight my love…my love…
Is written in our instincts
Is written in our instincts
Is written in our instincts
In our instincts
In our instincts
In our instincts
Track Name: Perfect Imperfection
(Far far away did seem to mourn and rave…)

On alien shores I am lying back…
Hearing the sirens singing loud…
Hearing the savage of the crowd…

I spread my hopes under your feet
Still losing when I saw myself to win
The comfort of your perfect imperfection…


Maybe I’m awake in someone else’s dream
Music in my ears my beating heart did make
Voices in my head… talking all at once
Please make them stop… let’s die in silence
In silence…


I spread my hopes under your feet
Still losing when I saw myself to win
The comfort of your perfect imperfection…


The heat
The love
The contradictions
Where are you now?
Where are you now?

(Far far away did seem to mourn and rave…)
Track Name: I Lose You
My thoughts run faster than my feet can go
That’s why I always lose the race…
And while my mind goes into wild
That’s how I lose it all and then… I lose u

My hands playing tricks with my pen
The words I need to spell fall down and torn
Before my tongue can help at all
That’s how I lose it all and then… I lose you

I burn the bridges before reach the other side
I use my strength to ruin my world
And everything I used to love…
That’s how I lose it all and then… I lose you

Lose you…
Lose you…
Lose you…
