Track Name: Falling down
I'm falling down,
they all told me it's gonna happen somehow.
I can almost see their tongues unbound
saying what went 'round
now it is coming around and around and around.

I wanna keep on falling and just follow the beat,
it's pumping to my head, I guess you know what I mean,
I'm jumping from the sky, can somebody help me please?
I'm falling down,
I'm falling down
and I'm enjoying it, yeah!
Come this way!
This way!

Let's fall down,
everybody in this old town
spread the sound,
it's not a breakdown, it's a breakbeat
and it's getting around and around and around.

I wanna keep on falling and just follow the beat,
it's pumping to my head, I guess you know what I need,
I'm jumping from the sky, can somebody help me please?
I'm falling down,
would you too fall down,
down on your knees?
Baby, help me!
Won't you share this moment with me?

I wanna keep on falling and just follow the beat,
it's pumping to my head, you really know what I dig,
I'm falling from the sky, can somebody help me please?
I'm falling down,
I'm falling down
but I'll still be on my feet arrogant as ever.
Somebody help me,
somebody help me,
somebody help me celebrate!
I'm falling!
Everybody's falling,
everybody, everywhere,
everybody's falling down!
Track Name: Saccharin
I'll let you
believe that you're right,
saccharin,
saccharin.

Who needs your
stupid opinions?
Saccharin,
they are saccharin.

Again, ooh yeah,
it sure is such a gas,
my friend,
we laughed our last breath, ah ah.

I want you
I want you to smile,
saccharin,
saccharin.
So theatrical,
a pathetic bore,
so take a bit of saccharin,
saccharin.

Again, ooh yeah,
it seems we have just cracked,
my friend.
too late to turn back, ah ah.

Again, ooh yeah,
again…
Another useless splash
and a sad ending.
Track Name: Sorry days
I live just for few things,
survive for the rest,
but time sometimes plays
some cyclical jests.
 
So I have to save
all the time I live for
from those waiting moments,
those moments so long.
 
Maybe you think that
it’s not a good way
of living this kind of day
everyday,
 
but I don’t know any shortcuts,
don’t want to play tricks.
I cannot deceive or change what I feel.
 
‘Cause nothing can warm me
and give me a rest
when I am into my infinite jest.
 
On every sleepless nightfall
I lie and I don’t wait
for tomorrow’s wake.
 
Sorry day,
but it’s just another day.
Everyday
becomes just another day.
 
I know lonely days
are necessary,
but all the same they’re
unbearable to me.
 
I will check my number
on the long waiting list.
I’m tempted to bet
it doesn’t exist.
 
So, why am I so worried
‘bout the wait I don’t wait for
‘n I’d rather dodge?
 
Sorry day,
but it’s just another day.
Everyday
Becomes just another day.
(without you)
I got just my sorry days.
Track Name: Song for Matthew Smith
Rain ticks like clock hands
a wet time
and I'm feeling really flimsy,
a page on the ground, a dumb sound.
But I grow thoughts in the air
and strange flairs,
joker's POKEs, pocket jokes.
And you think art is a craze
'cause your hearts beat a frayed beat,
your machines don't make a soul,
Matthew's gone to the next room.
Outside it's still raining
and you ask me to stay,
but this is not the nicest place,
Matthew's gone to the next room today.
I hear Lime Street's trains,
in my head they come and go away
and the river Mersey flows,
Matthew's gone to the next room today.
Track Name: How does she know?
Oh she,
in the middle of a carnival
where all's real,
calls me,
calls me.
How does she know that?
How does she know that?
I disguise myself and hide behind drapes of gold
but she knows the truth.

Oh, I live
on a hill with a raccoon
who keeps my house clean
and a hedgehog
dancing queen! (oooh and a strange cat)
How does she know that?
How does she know that?
I disguise myself and hide behind tales and songs
but she knows the truth.

How does she know that?
How does she know?
I disguise myself and hide behind paper walls...
but she knows the truth.
Track Name: Gimme something
You just don't wanna be with me anymore,
oh, it's easy to go
'cause you've taken all I got
and still you want more.
You just don't wanna be with me anymore.

And I don't wanna feel so bad anymore,
oh, you gimme a new Loft,
a new Studio 54,
to dance my pain away on the floor.
I just don't wanna feel so bad anymore.

You gimme something keepin' me up this night,
you gimme something that keeps me alive cause I
I'm goin' mad, goin' mad.

Guess I need a brand new summer of love,
I could watch my private dawn
breathing colors, touching songs
and you could free my soul, honey, my soul.
I guess I need a brand new summer of love.
Track Name: Faraway
Funny how it seems to be a joke,
I hang on to my soul
trying not to fall.
But I was gifted with a hope
and a pain,
I have no room for rues at all.
Just a sigh,
I'm dying for every
single thing you said and you did.

A day in the sun and a promise made
to a wind that heard,
a long, long time ago.
Here it blows,
it brings me petals of April
and leads me home.
'Cause sometimes
you die for every
little thing they say and they do.
Track Name: Your love is glue
I'd make you smile,
make you smile
if this was worthwhile…
babe, I'd try to.
But then you'd smile,
and it would be so hard,
too hard for me to say goodbye. (Bye bye)

I'd make you stay,
make you stay
if I knew how to love you,
if I could learn it… Oh, my!
But I…
I'd only make you cry,
I'd only make you cry all night.

And I'll have you worry
that's how all my stories go.
I don't want to hear you say
you can't live without me.
Glue under my feet.

The end of a fly,
the end of a fly,
it's no hero's last flight...
Girl, I don't want honey.

Your love is glue!
and I won't get stuck in such a thing
your love is glue!
but I only cause you pain,
I only cause you pain, it's true…
that's what I do.

And I'll have you worry
that's how all my stories go.
And I've never been the kind who needs,
but, please, don't leave me.
Oh, your love's glue, that's what it is!

Yes, it is.
Track Name: Watching the puddles
I'll never understand why
I waste my time
watching the puddles.
After the rain in the sun
it is such fun
to walk on the blue sky.

Far from everything near
and all the rubbish we hear.

How do you feel tonight?
(like you are dying)
How do you feel tonight?
Now a tear shines in your eye
but I'm on your side
and it's alright.

They'll never understand
but I can't pretend,
I'm only myself.
Bark at the dogs that speak
and set yourself free,
now we are all we need.

And we got nothing to lose
and we can be who we choose.

How do you feel tonight?
(like you are dying)
How do you feel tonight?
Now there's a chance to be alive,
it's all up to us to try
and make it alright.

How do you feel tonight?
(like you are dying)
How do you feel tonight?
Wrap your tears from your eyes,
if there's nothing else to do but smile
then we do smile
we can smile, smile, smile, yeah
and it's alright, alright, alright, alright,
and alright, alright, alright, alright
and alright, alright, alright,
we're alive tonight.
Track Name: Why so silent?
I've played the fool for three hours
and talked about everything, come on...
What's going on?
You make me do these kind of things.

You never laugh or smile and
I wonder if you're real, come on...
You don't say a word!
Oh, could I see you saturday?
Do you prefer another day?
Do you really have nothing to say?
You're gonna make me die,
you make me cry.

Please talk,
you see it, you've crashed my world,
oh baby / oh honey,
what can I do to
take away this kinda blue and
make something new?
Why so silent?

Words they mean nothing to me
but silence is not kind, come on,
what's going on?
I showed you all my savoir-faire
but you just act like you don't care
is it that I'm expecting way too much
from this whole affair?
Oh baby, maybe?

Please talk,
I can see that you're just a doll,
oh baby,
what can I do to
take away this kinda blue and
make something new?
Why so silent?
Track Name: That's why I'm here
I'm trying to push it down
but I can feel I'm gonna fail,
that's why I'm here.
Good sense and common thought
don't seem to be much help these days,
at least to me.

I'm trying to hold back all this sense of loss for something I don't mind,
I'm trying to push the bounds, I'm ready for whatever I can find,
I turn around but I'll be glad to see you, listen to what I'm saying.
That's why I'm here.

I've called up all my friends
because I'm scared they're warm but dead,
that's what I fear.
And we are all condemned
we're guilty of boring the whole land,
can't disagree.

But I'm trying to hold back all this sense of loss for something I don't mind,
I'm trying to push the bounds, I'm ready for whatever I can find,
I turn around but I'll be glad to see you, listen to what I'm saying.
That's why I'm...

Keeps calling, keeps calling me
and I can't hold it in.
Keeps calling, keeps calling me
I just can't hold it in.
Keeps calling, keeps calling...

I'm trying to tear it all down,
make your plain logic go astray,
that's why I'm here.

I'm trying to hold back all this sense of loss for something we don't mind,
I'm trying to push the bounds, get ready for whatever we could find,
I turn around, it will be good to see you, listen to what I'm…

Keeps calling, keeps calling me
I just can't hold it in.
Keeps calling...

I've tried to push it down.
Track Name: I got lost today
Well, I got lost today,
roamed everywhere
and then I found myself lazy
in a Sevillan square.
Andalucia,
play your trick on me
again and again!
I wish I'd stay this way eternally.

And my mind
just like my sight
suddenly got blind and plain white
and there's no time
or anything that matters now.

And I got lost today,
oh, I've always been,
but that's a different way,
I almost forgot who I am
and all that's happening,
reality,
pretend it's ok
I know it's a dream
but still it's not anyway.

I let my mind
go out and fly
higher than the sky
and have a look down to find our trace
but we are nothingness
from outer space

and I'm lost today,
lost today,
I'm lost today,
lost today.
