Track Name: None of Us
NONE OF US

NONE OF US HAS GROWN ENOUGH
TO BE AWARE

NONE OF US KNOWS THE AIR
AND THE CONDITION

NONE OF US HAS BEEN PREPARED
FOR REAL TEACHING

NONE OF US HAS BEEN PREPARED
FOR REAL LISTENING

(chorus)
´CAUSE NONE OF US
NONE OF US
NONE OF US AND THE CONDITION


NON OF US CAN REMEMBER WHERE´S THE CONDITION FROM...

WHO TOLD US? ABOUT ALL THIS THINGS WE GOT HERE?
WHO STEALED OUR MEMORIES?

WE MUST BE BLIND...
Track Name: Feeling the Sun
FEELIN´SO ALONE
WITH NO PEOPLE IN THE SHOW
WALKING SOMEWHERE
WITH THE WORLD AND MY SUN

AND IF YOU GONNA CRY
THAT MEANS YOU HAVE A LITTLE REVOLUTION/REVELATION INSIDE
AND IF YOU GONNA LEARN
THEN SAY: A GOD IS IN MY MIND

NEAR THE STARS, WHEN THE NIGHT COMES DOWN
NEAR THE SEA ...NEAR THE FISH

WILL YOU UNDERSTAND
THAT LOVE IS RECEIVING TO GO SOMEWHERE ELSE
CAN YOU STOP THAT CRY
CAN YOU, PLEASE, FEEL MY SOUL SHINE

AND IF YOU GONNA SMILE
THAT MEANS YOU JUST HAD MY PIECE OF SUN
AND IF YOU GONNA DIE
THAT MEANS YOU´RE STILL ALIVE

´CAUSE YOU GOT TO SHINE ´CAUSE YOU GOT TO SHINE
YOU GOT TO SHINE YOU GOT TO SHINE


WE CAME TO THIS WORLD
TO MAKE BIG THINGS, YOU GOT TO KNOW
WE CAN CREATE
AND THAT´S NICER THAN A SUNSET ON A LAKE

IF YOU TRY TO SHINE
´CAUSE YOU NEED IT
´CAUSE YOU LIKE IT
´CAUSE YOU NEED THE SUN TO SURVIVE
YOU ARE IN NEED TO LOVE THE SUN (to survive)
YOU ARE IN NEED TO LOVE
IN THIS SAD WORLD, IN THIS SAD WORLD..

SOMETIMES WE FEEL SO LONELY/SOMETIMES WE GOT TO LEARN/SOMETIMES WE´RE UNDERSTANDING/SOMETIMES WE JUST WALK AWAY/SOMETIMES WE DIE AND SOMEONE ELSE IS BREAKE

BUT NOW YOU GOT TO SHINE, YOU GOT TO SHINE
YOU GOT TO SHINE
AND I´M GONNA TELL YOU THE WAY

FEELING THE SUN
SHINNING THROUGH YOUR LITTLE WINDOW

THAT YOU MADE

FEELING THE SUN
FEELING THE SUN

SHINNING THROUGH
Track Name: Desire
THE DESIRE OF A KID WAS BROKEN
ONCE
AND ENCLOSURE IS NOT TOO BAD
IF YOU KNOW YOURSELF ENOUGH TO SEE THE LIGHT

THE DESIRE OF A KID
WAS BROKEN
BUT ENCLOSURE IS NOT THAT BAD
IF YOU KNOW YOURSELF ENOUGH TO SEE THE LIGHT


THOSE DAYS WHEN I FOUND SPACE
THOSE DAYS WHEN I JUST FELT
THE SUN ON MY SKIN
I LOOKED AT THE SKY
AND I'VE SEEN THE CLOUDS
AND THERE WEREN´T ANY BLACKBIRDS
UNDER THE STAR MAP
SINGING MY SONG
OUT OF TUNE
OUT OF TUNE
OUT OF TUNE

OUT OF THE TUNE

THOSE DAYS
WHEN I FOUNDED SPACE
NOW I FEEL OLD
MY HANDS ARE NOT AS STRONG
AS THEY USED TO BE

NOW SOMETIMES I FEEL SO OLD, SO OLD
INSIDE

ANYONE HAS BEEN CHILDREN ONCE
DO YOU REMEMBER?

THE DESIRE OF A KID
IS LIKE THE CROWN FOR THE KING
IS LIKE THE CROWN FOR THE KING
IS LIKE THE CROWN FOR THE KING

OH I REMEMBER
THOSE DAYS
UNDER THE STAR MAP
ONLY MOVING OUR SELVES
ONLY MOVING OUR SELVES
THROUGH THE PLENTY OF SPACE
PLAYING WITH DESIRE!
PLAYING WITH DESIRE!

LIKE THE SEA, LIKE THE SEA
LIKE WATER, LIKE THE SUN
LIKE THE SKY FOR THE LITTLE BIRD
THAT WANTS TO FLY FROM HIS NEST
TO ANOTHER LEVEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS

THE DESIRE OF A KID, IS LIKE THE CROWN FOR THE KING
THE DESIRE OF A KING IS LIKE THE CROWN FOR THE KID

AND NOW I FEEL SO WEAK
SO OLD

LIKE A DEAD MANWITHOUT HIS SON

LIKE A DEAD MAN WITHOUT HIS SON

LIKE A DEAD MAN WITHOUT HIS SON




THOSE DAYS
WHEN I FOUNDED MY PLACE
THOSE DAYS
WHEN I FOUNDED MY SPACE

THE JOURNEY IS HERE, NOW AND YESTERDAY…

Track Name: Voices
THERE ARE MINERAL VOICES INSIDE MY HEAD, INSIDE MY HEAD…

I HEAR THEM LOUD
SCREAMING THROUGH MY FAITH, MY FAITH…


YOU BETTER choose THE COLOR OF YOUR LIE
YOU BETTER choose THE COLOR OF YOUR LIFE
YOU BETTER GET THE COLOR, AND TWIST IT, LIKE A FLAG

THERE ARE MINERAL VOICES IN MY PAIN, IN MY PAIN…
FROM THE ANCIENT TIMES,
INSIDE THIS BOX
INCLUDING YOU
AND YOUR RESISTANCE
Track Name: It is when Fire rains from Heaven
Hey, hey,
things didn't turn to be so nice, girl,
on any side of the river bank,
when i was wandering with my son there
sister, everything looked like dust and pain.

So hey hey
you never phoned
when you were needed
and hey, times went away
without you there

And hey hey
it's not that i want to complain now
but what was ours deserves some tears.
Don't it, babe, don't it babe,
don't it, don't it babe?


You know bro
we did bury all our dreams
yeah in the neighbourhood that burnt
and while the ashes are still raising
there's only silence 'round our feet
it's when you mix dreams with indifference
that nightmares come to take their place.

you know bro
it is when fire rains from heaven
and it's when punishment is for the fair
when what they control is justice
justice never to be made
those little snails that wear their houses
that always come after the rain
though some fragile and some are dying
most o'them live well free and gay
with those infinite prairies of fresh food
without asking nothing else.
hey hey bro maybe you ain't that weak when
you can fight, man
maybe you know some kinds of love then
bro you keep calm
and decolonise everything
bro you keep calm and
decolonise everything.

Won't you brother, won't you
won't you won't you brother?
Track Name: Come and Go
COME AND GO
COME AND GO
COME AND GO
COME AND GO
(don´t trust your eyes ,don´t trust your eyes)

COME AND GO
COME AND GO
COME AND GO
COME AND GO
(don´t trust your eyes ,don´t trust your eyes)

COME AND GO
COME AND GO
COME AND GO
COME AND GO
(don´t trust your eyes ,don´t trust your eyes)

COME AND GO
COME AND GO
COME AND GO
COME AND GO
(don´t trust your eyes ,don´t trust your eyes)
