Shringara 13:32
Hey come my lady won't you move a little closer to me so clear I see there is no reason to hide I had my share on all the lament while I knew you held the key to delight but then got caught up in this worn-out situation somehow related to what I once had denied when still the only aim I'd reach for is to define myself in your eyes I came as far as there is no need to pretend that someone else out there would ever rescue me I've drawn my circles out in the sunshine and the rain and then I stopped to compromise These days I find it all so useless just to wait maybe I am not much different from you there Tied unto the hands of fate we got to let life flow until we'll meet again Seems I've been gambling with destiny when I always went against the tides Saw it was all on myself, had to adjust to it got to get along to this old rhythm of life Even if I still don't know who I really am I won't forget what I need So hard I've tried to rearrange with life's odd ways but it seems that I can't, don't tell me that I've failed Trying to master a beast that can't be tamed while all the voices of reason dim the light Seems I'm drifting on a flood of bare commotion fed on each tear I once cried The more it feels like being trapped within a cage the more I bleed, I need to lay by your side When all our senses resonate in sweet devotion we'll cross all boundaries of time I don't want to feel no more pain I just have to see you again I can't close my eyes yet but I need to rest I don't want to feel no more pain guess I have to see you all the way I can't close my eyes yet and I can't find no rest until these grey clouds are falling down and all those tired walls are cracking up while they all wear your name yeah they all wear your name

Once upon a time you'd talk to me how your wild rivers were reaching out for me and fed into an ocean of love, if I had read you carefully You swore to lead me through my sleep and even in times when I should not weep you'd find a way to cleanse my soul, come to drown my restless feet While all those simple things that I had not turned to old friends that I soon forgot I burned all their memory solemnly, still waiting for your flood Till there won't remain that many things to ask staying on-shore had to become my greatest task Got to find a way to cleanse my soul on my own and drown my restless feet Oh can't you see how I'm longing for you to take me with you on a river of excess Will need a rainstorm to fill up my emptiness Don't you hear how I'm calling out for you Come wash me over with your current full of passion Your raging streams shall make me melt in open seas of caress

Don't Belong 11:57
I feel like a stranger in this town with all these lonely souls down in its veins I don't know what to think when I take a look around guess what I have lost yet can't be found And when I roam these endless streets at night still wondering where the hell I got wrong when I had seen your masterplan as it came undone while the greatest hymn remained unsung Still wouldn't mind if you'd come over to me if still we both cling to our sides of this story But I won't pretend to be smart no more, no I ain't that strong I feel like a stranger even to myself ever since you're gone Oh how I wish that you would set me free just when you said you don't belong to me And when you said you don't belong to me Oh how I wished that you would set me free Here I lay slain by a blind sun that once had shone for a few privileged ones when they came to feast on my silent prey still don't know where I belong So I will hide myself away now till I'll be recognized and conceived by radiant eyes that always burn Oh and I will be relieved

You've been losing yourself within these liquid silk skies where all those dead roads have lead you, when the wishing well run dry and still you chase strange idols of a long-gone mislead youth stared deep in god's blank image, but couldn't find the whole truth You'll die again to rise and then You'll see it all depends on what you'll do Hear all the Brahmins sing in an endless refrain that soon you'll be born again And far beyond the shadows of another world you'll see it all at a glance Go break that faceless mirror and end to live in pain While trotting down your way towards a cold and lonely death where their voices won't fade away, but keep on echoing through your aching head and still you just won't listen, there ain't no use to tell you had a thousand years to learn, but still can't face your true self You'll die again to rise and then You'll see it all depends on what you'll do Hear all the Brahmins sing in an endless refrain that soon you'll be born again And far beyond the shadows of another world you'll see it all at a glance Go break that faceless mirror and end to live in pain Yes soon you'll live again and be damned wear this like a stain Yes soon you'll live it again and you may finally breakthrough Hear all the Brahmins sing in an endless refrain that soon you'll be born again And far beyond the shadows of another world you'll see it all at a glance Go break that faceless mirror and end to live in pain Within the distant mumbling of the priest recalls the voice of the wind saying: "Yours is the holy land, you may claim it again!"
