1. I Am We

A song unsung, a deed undone
Son of the sun, on the run with a gun
The natives are getting restless
The Haitians contested
Workers
Prostitutes
Honeydew ain't bloodless

1, 2, 3
A, B, C
I am We
The jungle can't see
What's foreign to this world
Is native to me

Street's kiss, bleed snitch
Flesh, bricks, get stitched
Drip blood on my plate
So I can taste it
Face it, grace it
Mold this era, embrace it

1, 2, 3
A, B, C
I am We
The jungle can't feel
A mind out of time
Is ticking in me




2. With the Time I Run

Sometimes I was running
They'd pass by faster, I wished
But then I kept jogging
And so precious times I wasted
Some days I would live again
Repeat them if I could
Moments like after the rain
Just freeze the time
I would

Am I walking all alone?
This path just leading on
There is no return
My steps must go on

Some moments I would erase
Times of pain and hurting
When i can't stand my face in the mirror
I'm crying

I can't dry the rain
Nor blacken the sun
More's the cloudy pain
With the time I run




3. Always Searching

There is a meaning in everything
A right and a wrong in every song

So think twice what you wish, it might come true
The things that you say and what you do
The life that you live, one of a kind
The things that you seek you will find

What my eyes can see, just a drop in the sea
So little that my eyes can lie

Just look with your heart,
That is the art of living the one life in the sun




4. Broken Friend

Once again the house I built came down, a broken dream
I didn't change the course enough to change it all
The lifeline you tied solidly, my days to safety,
I did cut it away with a knife of hesitation

Once again I steered the ship and didn't look where
Was I taking the friends I called dear to me?
Now the collision's gone
The ocean washes all the bodies away, which I called dear to me

The plans made, big and small, why can't I make them work?
The smaller gets bigger

The lonely bits of me cry on the ground
I still want to climb mountains and leave them behind

The plans made, big and small, why can't I make them work?
The smaller gets bigger
Every time I trust my steps, away the ground gives
Is it bad, as I think, or for the best of me?




5. Phantom Limb

Hold yoí head
Stripped down to your heels
It's your neck sick, on the wheel
- This triangle Ė ainít down to make it a square
So hold on to your pillow, just step back
Or break this silence
- This animation

Dropped the ball, and killed the pill
Since broken characters won't make it home...
They never crushed bones

Grab a hold of your heart
Itís not a straight stray
Still hold on to your round
- That animation
Stealing my steps
Out of this world
- Like this regression
It's your steps stealing my art

So why stick to the script
When you goní play out our part
Legs lost ever since, since it all started
Retarded, still feel the pain
- The heart

Fuck you, then
ĎCos the ballís back on run
And your assís on the way
Carry worth the eight
And back to the bay
The pigs, blasting away...but way too late
Youíre back in
Now carry worth my weight
No longer feel it on my back
My pain lost that trait




6. Misused Power

If people made you the one in power
Or God gave you the key and built you a tower

If I give my power to you
Don't take it just to entertain
All of you in you, hundreds times two
Don't seek glory by causing pain

Who holds the sword and authority
He has a reason, it's not in vain
He should make truth reality
Help those who carry pain

If people made you the one in power
Or God gave you the key and built you a tower
Give your name honour, don't make it sour
It's your job to help us in our darkest hour
Help us...




7. Shotdown Truth

Show me a war that does not lie
A conqueror without his own gain
Show me a victim that doesnít ask why
A child of battle who hasnít felt pain
I cannot see, my ears donít hear
Anything good in these songs of killing

They who start the wars
They only hold the force
They donít fight the brothers
They just take from others

The soldiers hold people in fear
And the pool of revenge is filling
Wheels of war Ė Shotdown truth
The cycle of death - The stolen breath

I cannot see, my ears donít hear
Anything good in these songs of killing
The soldiers hold people in fear
And the pool of revenge is filling
They always come Ė come together
Donít let them in Ė theyíll stay forever




8. The Division

Mother, I've tried to make you so proud in my eyes
Should I push forward when I'm tired,
Invest in you when you have expired
And if I can't would you let me come

Back inside
From the outside
And let me breathe
In between

Father, through your eyes
Will you watch over me beyond your time?
Across the river, deep and wide
Step by step, leave me behind
Oceans, dividing our time

Where ever you are
How near, how far
Where ever we were
I don't know where I have gone

Gone with wind
Sucked to the sun
You are as you were




9. Sum of Choices

When I stepped into this world,
there was someone who said he had heard
that once a child is born, a promise is filled like sworn

When all the duties are done, will the freedom come?
As long as there is a cage, our time is just empty rage

We are the sum of our choices
Why no-one will hear our voices?

We need to spread our wings so that we could fly like the birds
We have to jump out of the nest and let the free wind do the rest

We are the sum of our choices
We have to jump out of the nest




10. The White Light

From a seed, to a schoolgirl, to a graduate, a prostitute
Became a junkie, a mother of a daughter with gratitude

For a mirror that allowed her mother to stare back
In a room starving for light to discern the darker shades, black
Please step in, inhale, and open your eyes
You may turn off the radio wishing you could censor this life
And fast-forward the times, won't let them touch you severely
With this bliss of ignorance dismissed, this life shall not miss her dearly
No, she won't have the luxury...

What's whispered in darkness, should be dragged out in white light
Covering the wrong should but hinder the right

Burn the curtains that sucked out the last breath
Of a girl born so bright she tried to light up the death
Inevitable like the sunset, covering all she'd possessed
Like sunrise, the fall is an all-day process

Destined to destroy a seed bound to shine
But the seed outshone by the black illuminates this rhyme
Written to rip the curtains absorbing the air
Blowing out the candle lit to handle despair

What's whispered in darkness, should be dragged out in white light
Covering the wrong should but hinder the might of right
But for every ray of light there's dark space left closed
In a battle for a breath, who advocates those opposed?

It doesn't make a difference whether you burn out or fade away
When the story's wrapped up in plastic, it's time to call it a day




11. Dead Water Diary

Found my tip split yesterday
Dull edged and wrecked
The havoc got me vexed so I slit my arrow
Ripped what I'd sowed and slaughtered my farrow

The jar was half empty today
The taps leaked condensed milk yesterday

But my withered lips were itching
And my mind started switching

And my hands were shaking
The glass shattered on my palms waking

Up my nerves, drenched with thirst this morning
But the stool didn't pass me by until today
Hit the floor again tonight 4.00 a.m.
It's tomorrow, times prey

The cracks in the floor don't choose sides
Whatever, whoever, lose, dies
It's the year of dead water, son, year of dead water
