Submitted by level 퀴트린
1. Introduction (A Bit More Of Green) (1:33)
2. That's Human Bondage (4:26)
My mother told me lies when she
said: "You must learn for life.
The world will have a window for
you when you do the right."
But every day life proves that it
depends on different things
If born not rich and mighty then you
cannot spread your wings

You can't be absolutely free
If you don't want to stay alone
We're bound to be society
Even if you change it there's still him
and you and me

That's human bondage
Chains of the world, noone's free...
That's human bondage
Chains of the world, noone's free,
none of us are free.

Money is a license to be better than the poor
It makes the people friendly and it opens every door
And everyone's a dealer but your luck is not for free
So, if you've got the cash then I will satisfy your needs

There's so much stuff to ease your pain
When you awake it was in vain
Dreams make it easy when you're down
But all that counts is that you take
your chance and run

That's human bondage
Chains of the world, noone's free...
That's human bondage
Chains of the world, noone's free,
none of us are free.

That's human bondage

You can't be...
3. True Face In Everyone (5:12)
Death in the night, murder,
robbery, the violence
Is our daily bread, there is a
common tense

Kids in the street feeling cool, they killed the neighbour's cat
They cannot feel respect for life.
Now what if they were dead?
Man in the dark killed the feelings of the girl next door
Raping her for a shot, now she can't trust a man no more

In every twisted mind
There's something still behind
Humanity lives on
Forever in the
True face in everyone, conscience can't lie
True face in everyone, facing the lies

Man at the front shooting brothers in the name of God
Preachers, generals lead their countries into death
Mindgames called religion, ideology
Set above life and the industry is feeding it for cash

Reason to survive
The spirit is alive
The meaning of the things
Perception is the
True face in everyone, time after time
True face in everyone, conscience can't lie
True face in everyone, time after time
True face in everyone, facing the lies
4. Flowers That Fade In My Hand (7:40)
Do you know, it scared me to death
When I first saw you right after this
Your face so pale on that sheet in that chest
Really, man, it scared me to death

They called in the morning
Told me you had died last night
I cried my eyes out
The sorrow blinded me for light

Like flowers that fade in my hands

Everywhere I feel your presence
I've grown since you left, you must be inside me
Sometimes I hear you talking
though my mouth
And sometimes I know you're seeing through my eyes

The father I once knew
Has become a close friend
The skill in my hand
It makes me understand that we're

Like flowers that fade in my hands

Mother said you would have liked
To stay a little longer
I don't want to think about
What could have been or not

Now I know you haven't gone
You're still here by my side
Into every straw of grass
Or in the fading light

I wouldn't mind to follow you
Any time or day
And inbetween, I've gotta go
A long and winding way

Now I know that death has no scares
Within the remains I've got my share
And I know my death has no scares
There is no mysterium for someone who dares to die

And when I'm with you
Next to the flowers on your grave
It's such a comfort
To feel the earth that leads to you

Like flowers that grow from you hands...
5. Reflection Of A Shadow (3:53)
In search for personality
We people always think the clothing makes a man
In fact there's such ha difference in all
What we think and how we understand

My left is your right
Your day is my night
Their darkness is our light

Reflections of a shadow
Reflections of my mind

We're looking for externals
And the eye gets blind in insincerity
But when I hear you talking
Then your soul lies free for everyone to see

And what I do
Becomes my proof
Our acts draw our portraits

And in the night
We make it right
In dreams we find our light

Reflections of a shadow
Reflections of my mind
Reflections of a shadow
Reflecting in the night
6. Can't Get Out (5:03)
What can I do when the sadness comes through?
I'd better stay asleep inside my bed
When every word could be causing a hurt
I'd better keep the silence than to speak
Won't someone help me cause I just can't make my mind up to escape

Morning, another day
Still I'm fighting for a wink of sleep
The clock rings and I must begin
But I feel so broken, I could weep
And I find it hard to stay awake
Just to make a step costs all my will
I get no power from a shower, I
wont' make it in an hour
And my body's aching, am I ill?

Oh, just let me out
I've tried so hard, I can't get out
I just can't get out, my state of
mind won't let me out

Daytime I'm coming round
And the first thing that I hear is bad
Then I start to worry everyone around me
And I'm angry and I'm feeling sad
I'm screaming I am fighting with
the people that get in my way
I'm running and I'm pushing and
I'm crying and I'm crushing
My depression made again my day

Oh, just let me out
I've tried so hard, I can't get out
I just can't get out, my state of
mind won't let me out

Can't get out

Awakening this morning
Trying to get the sleep outta my eyes
Here it is again... again...
7. Waiting For The Moon (4:40)
I believe in the dark
I am afraid of the world
'�ause it scares me, I know

People don't like me, talk behind my back
Avoiding the look in my disfigured face

I'm just waiting for the moon to come and set me free
And I'm just waiting for moonlight and then my eyes you can see
I'm just waiting for the moon to come and set me free
Because the moonlight can release me from my misery

Hide my face in the day
Tonight I'll set myself free
I'm addicted too moonlight

Run with the wind, feel the wet in the air
A pleasure for me and my distorted soul

I'm just waiting for the moon to come and set me free
And I'm just waiting for moonlight and then my eyes you can see
I'm just waiting for the moon to come and set me free
Because the moonlight can release me from my misery

Hid my face in the day
Tonight I'll set myself free

Run with the wind, feel the wet in the air
Oh, how I'm longing for it
A pleasure for me and my distorted soul
I feel like the cat walkin' on a wall

I'm just waiting...
8. Faith (5:42)
Please stay here, don't run away and slam the door
I think we got to talk it over just once more
Are we ever right in the face of the big truth?
So why fighting for a lie?

Don't lose your faith
Whatever comes to you
Cause time works for those who believe
We'll get it right anew

Don't you lose your faith
Don't every turn away
I'm thinking about the truth there is
Forgotten in a lie

We are branches on the tree of life. We can
Only get together by touching with our leaves
But we got the same roots close in ourselves
So let's grow up to the sky

Don't you lose your faith
Don't ever turn away
I'm thinking about the trust there is
Forgotten in lie

Don't you lose your faith
Whatever comes to you
Cause time works for those who believe
We'll get it right anew

Like a story or a song
Sleeping till it will be sung
Our future lies unfolded
Let's forget it when we've done us wrong

After all you've put me through
There is always something new
Got to face the tests of time
Guess there's nothing me that we can do
9. Saddle The Wind (4:06)
Now I know it's time again to change my life
Yes it's time for me to leave it all behind
Say goodbye to all I'd have if I'd stay here
No, I don't need it anymore

The wind is whispering in the trees, they call my name
The birds that leave me down here, they all do the same
Don't you think that I don't care
There'll be a time
When I am old enough to stay

There's this longing in my heart that must be fed
It gets its thrills outside the walls
There are still so many pictures in my head
I must follow to this call

As I leave it all behind - saddle the wind
Satisfy my longing mind - saddle the wind
As I leave it all behind - saddle the wind
Say goodbye from time to time - saddle the wind

As I see the naked earth, wide open fields
There's a vision to become a part of it
In its sparkling waves the river invites me
To join it on the journey to the sea

And always when I feel I've got a home
Then I need to get away

As I leave it all behind - saddle the wind
Satisfy my longing mind - saddle the wind
As I leave it all behind - saddle the wind
Say goodbye from time to time - saddle the wind

There's this longing in my heart...

Saddle the wind
10. Dust (4:49)
It's been a long night and it's cold there, outside
As I watch the break of day
It's starting to rain like the sky is crying in pain for me

I hear the sound of people running around
Life is there, beyond the door
I was with them, I know, just a few days ago but it's over

Dust in the wind
There is nothing lasting long
One thing must pass, the other's born
Dust in the wind
There is nothing left behind
All that we are's dust in the wind

Many were there, for my wounds they have cared
As I was lying on the ground
I wish I'd have made some friends
but now it's too late, I'm alone

Dust in the wind
There is nothing lasting long
One thing must pass, the other's born
Dust in the wind
There is nothing left behind
All that we are's dust in the wind

This is the end, brother give me your hand
I'm afraid to let it go
Noone's to blame if they forget
who's the name on my gravestone

Dust in the wind
There is nothing lasting long
One thing must pass, the other's born
Dust, only dust
There is nothing left behind
All that we are's dust in the wind

Dust in the wind
There is nothing left behind
All that we are's dust in the wind
11. Nobody Knows (3:50)
C'mon now, c'mon now
Let's get closer, I'll show you how

Let's get into my car
Noone can see us and we got it warm

Get it out, get it out
No need to worry, everything's allowed

Ain't this good, yes, it's good
I know there's power in your underwood

Wohow, nobody knows

Get on up, get on down
Let's change it over, babe, c'mon sit down

Uh, I like it this way
One foot in the steering wheel that's OK

Wohow, nobody knows
Wohow, nobody knows
12. Wild Seed (5:26)
He grew up in a normal home
Real Typical, we'd say
One sister and two brothers
They were comrades for the play
The video was his best friend,
He watched it day and night
But death and war was alright

Wild seed, wild seed from the start
Wild seed, wild seed, injured heart

He'd seen his daddy drinking
And he learned to asked no whys
When Mom was lying on the floor
With tears in her eyes
He went out with his brothers
And they laughed about the hurt
They felt so good and strong
When someone was aching in the dirt

Wild seed, wild seed from the start
Wild seed, wild seed, injured heart

Oh, that's really wild
Really wild insane
Deep into social hell

He always thought that women
Are the servants of men's greed
And really was, astonished
When she called for the police
So he lived in a normal jail
Real typical, we'd say
And yesterday they killed him
When he tried to break away

Wild seed, wild seed from the start
Wild seed, wild seed, injured heart

Really wild
Really wild insane
Can he take the blame
