Track Name: Erased
Erased

My days were young
It seemed they would last forever
I didn’t realise
Time fades away
The buildings strong
With stone severe, they seemed to reign
I had the impression
They were here to stay.

Chorus
I ‘d wish this day
With light and rain, anyway
Will keep a place
In your brain
At night there’s a spot
Where buildings rise
Once erased
There is my space

The inner city
Seemed to live
We went side by side
I touched your hand
Read Genet
But soon this love would be denied

Track Name: Nightporter
Nightporter

The days grow long
the nights are short
I can’t breath anymore
now are the lights to go
inside we did know
they smoke us out
we’re out of food
we are hungry, but don’t give in
Death is breathing in our neck
the cold, hell is waiting, I know

Yhis threw a shadow far ahead
my fate was there, when I met you
and you couldn’t turn it with your hands
it was too large, it was too true

we need to face
the only truth we own, we share, we have
we can’t sacrifice our love again
we have to look in the eyes of fate
there’s no choice, we’re no cowards

(operastukje)

There’s no memory, there’s nothing to leave behind
just emptyness, no horizons,
nothing to believe in anymore
someday, someday our memories will come alive
but we must hide, we can’t show our faces

There’s nothing left
this is all
to defend against the overwhelming flood of all of you
get to me
I know, I fear, I love, I hide I wait, I long for you
inside, tonight
Get away, get away, get away, get away…..
Track Name: Moon
Moon

Once, the people had hope
although they were miserable
their future was shiny
their purpose was near / high
their morals were up
tradition brought certainty
and peace of mind
it’s dust from the moon, dust from the moon, etc.

Now, there’s nothing to find
life is an airbubble, it’s floating away
we just multiply, without a reason
I want the moon in you, don’t let me lose you
dust from the moon, dust from the moon

this dust is like gold, and it’s very rare
it’s very exclusive and nobody’s got it
and when the wind blows, it’s flying away
through the spaces of the evolution

Don’t fly away from me
it’s still the kid behind the masque, that I still love
the silence speaks / waits
it breaks my ears
don’t act like the dust from the moon.
O silent moon
