Track Name: Song for the sky
Lovely people
hold tight the framing of their eyes
and hold on till the meaning of their lives
is forgotten
yet they will hold on

Time flows in
and time flows out
and time transforms everything
you care about
you lose your grip
you fall, you fly

Lovely pictures
arranged along the lonesome miles
that tunnel through the caverns of my mind
they’ll be forgotten
and yet I’ll hold on

Time flows in
and time flows out
and time transforms everything
you care about
you lose your grip
you fall, you fly
Track Name: Birdman
I’m not the Birdman
You knew he passed
Away with my wings
I remember

We loved the Birdman
We knew his past
All the things we told
We remember

The Birdman we saw
The Birdman we trust
The Birdman we know
The Birdman we talk

I’m not the Birdman
I know I passed
Away with my mask
I remember
We knew my past
All the things I told
We remember

The Birdman we saw
The Birdman we trust
The Birdman we know
The Birdman we talk
Track Name: The rite of spring
Imagine the flowers perfume's getting to your nose
While the green grass is tickling your toes
And joy all over
The sweat from the works and dances colors your chest
And your body is free, you don't suffer, you don't need no rest
You dance for the elders
Crumbling the sandy soil, your skin is burning
Your smile cracks and your tears boil,
you keep praying "Please save us Larilo, Larilo"
We're all stardust, we're meant to be
Trampling the floor till ecstasy
Under the sun
All the distorted bodies are shaking
To invoke the highest spirit, the rite of spring
Has now begun
Crumbling the sandy soil, your skin is burning
Your smile cracks and your tears boil,
you keep praying "Please save us Larilo, Larilo"
I remember this night after the dances
I escaped from my house and was hidden in the bushes
There dressed in white like a light in the dark Shining bright in the site of ol'stone
she was all alone face to faces
With the others, teenages and elders
Their arms raised and their eyes blurred and this is
How I saw The cape, the hand, the knife
The wound, the blood, the ring
The dirt, the brown, the black
The seed, the rite of spring
Track Name: Cuckoon
I'm just a little cuckoo
who'd like to be a better bird
I'd liked to have the answers
To the questions that I’ve heard

Why did mum leave me here?
Would be one that I would ask
If I turn to ask my nestlings
It is something they don’t grasp

Even though I love my nestlings
I would like to leave the nest
As I hear a crazy song
Beating freedom from my chest

Its rhythm is like magic
Turning nature upon its head
I'm just a little cuckoo
and my old nature is dead

I will make my own cocoon
A nest for every wing
A cocoon as big as the moon
A place for everything!

Today, everyone sings
The nest for every wing
was made by a little cuckoo
and it's a place for everything

Today, every bird sings
It's a little cuckoo
to make a nest for every wing
A cockoon as big as the moon


Hello
peekaboo
Track Name: Away she flies
Tonight I am dreaming
A dream so exciting
With love in disguise
Her face is smiling

Her smile underdrawing
The clouds in her eyes
Drifting slowly there up in the skies
I wish this night could last forever

I wish that I had never lost her

I even wish that I had never met her sometimes
But dawn is knocking and away she flies
Tonight I am dreaming
A dream so exciting
With love in disguise
Her face is smiling

Her smile underdrawing
The clouds in her eyes
(Here she comes once again)
Drifting slowly there up in the skies
I wish this night could last forever

I wish that I had never lost her

I even wish that I had never met her sometimes
But dawn is knocking and away she flies
