Track Name: The Paper Ship
I won't be faster than you.
Brilliance and green weave my skin
their weight tickles my sail
which possessed by an impersonal energy
reveals "I'm the root through the attempts,
I'm the fall and the calm
birchen leaves nodding over the flood"

Vibrating Dance,
please, dampen the way
and spread out your blanket:
among everything Just I Am.
Track Name: Mu.S.E.
Track Name: Stain of Steel
Pressure on the bones
frame loads you down and squeals
- the air flickers, thickens, moves piecemeal, becomes barrier –
Metal clings are snakes kissing your neck,
canvas the wall, paintbrush your back.
- the deepest shadow draws the scene, paints it black and keeps it perfectly intact

The whole infection never fades
starts to reveal its black embrace to you.
There is no red claw
tearing up from pupils cobwebs
rising from the gloom.
Life is steel - not bending at your whim-.
floating on a sinless hex broth
rising from the gloom.

That day was dumb
it caught my calm when
I felt all thoughts
turned into stone when
I stared at my nightly monsters
slightly growing out of me.
I blinded myself to believe
there were still hideouts to reach.
I found a thread, it was a false guide
tying down to insanity

Let the structure flow,
calm down your chest and slide
See the dreadful step
degrading your disease
(Oh God, I fear he cannot hear at all...)
Track Name: Worn-Out
“Before the ceiling hugs us
let me kiss your solitude.
Let me dip my void in your profile”, I said,
the eyes caught your line
grabbing notes to rise.
Words grazed the veil
through worn-out attitudes.
I was yourself, you died again.
Track Name: From Blue to Red
Going back to the box,
being ruled from flat-widescreen.
Wired to the mind we'll drive you away
So far away...

Chen marrying light
Fire Perfect Mind
(Something worth to live for, to kill for)
K'an melting K'un
Short time to choose.

Come to me
whirl not perceptible
in nightly perspective,
don't tell me that now now now it's over.
Mighty mighty mighty mighty
grows an incredible Will.
Now I begin to feel:
Tell me that now now here it's coming.

Mighty brightly mighty lightly
grows an incredible Will.
Clarity was concealed:
Tell me that now now here it's coming.
Track Name: Starslave
The dust darkened an artificial curve,
North was lost: nothing left to cling to.
Rolling up your guts around its reel
a cardboard future was just holding you down.

A Nightmare revealed to me what my dreams were
I was forgetting my feet can lead me high, high, high.
I gave a dumb tramp all I learned and more,
I climbed the stairs: my voice started to recall:
"Now I'm here, get me over, let me in."
Track Name: Resilient
A step away from my spine
sky turns from black to blue,
Just a while from myself
a mind plays in perfect tune.
Slide on one of nine sides:
The mourn will have a name.
Call it passing pain and
my crisis won’t be late.

And yet whose voices are these?
Emptiness is my choice.
Coming through those faces
who’s going to make next noise?
Mood, gestures, needs, will, talk,
please tell me what can I control?
Here’s me, defying my fall
Just like I was never born.
Track Name: INI.OR
Yes, Me, Fat child crawling in a safe pen
Close, shy Boy, paralyzed, still unborn
Smart Mind hiding in a smug rhyme
Half Man I am going to kill you
Ah, spare me a mourn!
'cause I forgave my steps, my heart, my weakest thought.
Track Name: Dust
Keep your eyes closed,
feel your hand,
let pass it through the table and
turn the radio off
‘cause you’re ready to go.
See the ground below.
Trust your will: the wind won’t let your new body fall.
You don’t have to be moved by the tears of the moon:
even your mom could wolf your soul down
with her frown.

Dust dulls life
and life gets stuck as fear tries
to make wholeness disappear
But I was ready to go
(I saw the ground below!)
‘cause the air was warm and
the black gate was so close
to the square of my tune
to The Will!
maybe soon
a twirl:
now I can see you.
