Track Name: DIGITAL UNDERWATER
WITH HER RED LEATHER EYEPATCH
SHE ROAMED HER PARENTS HALLS
SHE WALKED OFF THE BALCONY
WITH HER RED LEATHER EYEPATCH SHE CRAWLS

SHE FORGOT HER BEST FRIEND´S SECRETS
BEFORE THEY WERE EVER TOLD
SHE BORROWS CHALK FROM CHILDREN
STEALS SHOE POLISH FROM THE OLD

HER TATTOO OF A STARFISH
SHE´S HAD SINCE SHE WAS TEN
ASK HER ABOUT THE OCEAN
SHE PRETENDS SHE´S NEVER BEEN THERE

SHE TALKS OF GROWING EGGPLANTS
IN THE BACKSEAT OF HER CAR
DREAMS OF UNDERWATER CAMERAS
SLIPPING IN BETWEEN THE BARS

.....

IT WAS A DIGITAL UNDERWATER WORLD
(IT ITS NOW, AND THEN)
SO SQUARE..
SO CLEAN...
SO PERFECT! AN IMPERFECTION

IT IS NOW THIS WORLD...DIGITAL
CAN YOU SEE IT??

SO CLEAN
LIKE A PHOTOGRAPH UNDER THE SEA
SO SQUARE
IT´S ALL THE SAME

...OR JUST THE REFLECTION OF HER QUIET EYE?
Track Name: SAD VIEW
SAD VIEW

SAD VIEW...
SO SAD, SO SAD

SAD VIEW...
SO SAD

I´VE SEEN IT
SO SAD..
I´VE SEEN IT
I´VE SEEN IT IN MY DREAMS
I´VE SEEN IT ON TV
I´VE SEEN IT ON A SCREEN

SAD VIEW...

WAR !!
THOSE EYES...

::::::::::::

I´VE SEEN ENOUGH!
MANKIND IS GOING TO DISAPPEAR...

´CAUSE WE DON´T KNOW WHAT WE´RE MAKING HERE

SO SAD

SO SAD

SAD... SO SAD.

WHO WANTS,
WHO CARES? (you)

TODAY
AIR HAS PURITY IN THE IN-BETWEEN
AND WATER IS HARD TO BREATH
IN AN ABSENT-MINDED WAY

WHO LOOSE
WHO SHARE (us)

DEATH IS A GHOST,
A HOPED AND LIGTHLY GHOST
THAT COMES AS THE WIND

DEATH IS A GHOST,

AND IT WALKS BACKWARDS, LIKE THE PAST
TOWARDS CLOSED DOORS

TOWARDS CLOSED DOORS

DEATH IS A GHOST (X4)

DEATH IS GHOST THAT IS AFRAID TO BE
AN ANGEL

DEATH IS A GHOST (X4)

DEATH IS A GHOST,
A HOPED AND LIGTHLY GHOST
THAT COMES AS THE WIND
LIKE A LITTLE BIRD ON THE FLOOR..
TOO FAST!

I HOPE NOT TO FREEZE WHEN THE ANGELS COME TO PICK ME UP

undressed heart, I want you to know
there still so many secrets to be told
what a mess we got here
don´t you worry,
I´m gonna take care of you
don´t on my knees
like a baby, like a baby
don´t feel sad

Track Name: ROBOT NOISE
IN MY LIFE THERE´S STILL SO MANY THINGS TO DO
IN OUR TIMES, WHEN MUSIC SEEMS TO BE THE CLUE
IN MY HANDS I GOT SOME MELODIES FOR YOU
IN MY EARS I GOT SOME NOTES FLOWING TO YOU

YOU DON´T HAVE TEARS INSIDE
BUT YOU DON´T HAVE TO SAY IT LOUD
I´M GONNA RUN OUT OF THIS CITY
I´M GONNA SCAPE FROM YOU
AND YOUR INDIFFERENCE

IN MY LIFE THERE´S STILL SO MANY THINGS TO DO
IN OUR TIMES, WHEN MUSIC SEEMS TO BE THE GLUE
IN MY HANDS I GOT SOME MELODIES FOR YOU
IN MY EARS I GOT SOME NOTES FLOWING TO YOU

YOU DON´T HAVE TEARS INSIDE
BUT YOU DON´T HAVE TO SAY IT LOUD
I´M GONNA RUN OUT OF THIS CITY
I´M GONNA SCAPE FROM YOU
AND YOUR RESISTANCE

WE´RE NAKED BEAMS IN YOUR DREAMS, IN YOUR DREAMS (X4)
THE UGLIEST SHAPE IS YOUR BEST MOMENT (X4)
YOU ARE GUILTY AND NOW IT´S TOO LATE (X4)

ROBOT NOISE...
Track Name: NEAR THE RIVER
NEAR THE RIVER

SUMMER CAME, AND WE FELT SAFE, AGAIN
WE ENJOYED SO MUCH THE SUN, THE BREEZE..UP HERE, IN THE MOUNTAIN.

AL THAT LIGHT THAT WE COULD HAD
DREAMING AGAIN INTHE SHADE
AND MAGIC NIGHTS CAME AGAIN

CAN YOU SEE ALL THAT CHILDREN PLAYING?
WITH DESIRE, SUCH A DESIRE!!
UP HERE
WHERE ALL IS GREEN
WHERE ALL IS GREEN

IN THE MOUNTAIN, IN THE MOUNTAIN

...

NEAR THE RIVER, WITH YOU

SUMMER CAME AND WE FELT YOUNG, AGAIN
THINGS GOT SLOW, ON THE HILL
AND MAGIC NIGHTS CAME AGAIN

NEAR THE RIVER, WITH YOU, MARIE

COLD WATER!
CLEANED UP OUR SPIRITS

WARM NIGHTS
ON OUR BLESSED HEARTS
