Track Name: Bitter Sweets
1/Take a breath. Control yourself
No mask on the face
By and by, a winding twisted line,
Makes you feel like a clown dragging out like a dog ah ah ah ah

2/By candlelight, Another cigarette,
In a while, you'll get better.
Late at night, Another glass of wine
Makes you roar like a car
Sliding down on a star. ah ah aha ah

Bitter Sweets, Rolling down on dusty roads.
Bitter Sweets, Rolling down on you.

At the crack of dawn, another glass of wine, in a while you'll be fine
Take a break; control yourself; no mask on the face, sliding down on a star ah ah ha

Bitter sweets rolling down on dusty road
Bitter sweets rolling down on you

A song may be brighter than a view.
A word may hurt deeper than a screw.
With a girl you try to mingle.
Your blood it makes you tingle.
Sing it. Sing it. Sing it....... with your head, with your eyes with your heart...
Track Name: Love's in Vain
Well I saw her at the station
With a case in her hand
'so hard to tell, 'so hard to sing
Love's in vain

Then, I got her into town
With her case in my hand
Felt so groovy, felt so dizzy
Love's in vain

Well the next night I followed her
With a gun in my hand
Felt so sad, babe, felt so sorry
Ain't Love sane

Drove along to the river
With a grin on my face
Dark caught me, boy, dark caught me here
Love's insane

Then I stopped by the wayside
A shovel in my hand
So hard to tell, so hard to sing
Ain't Love sane

Well I saw her at the station
With a case in her hand
'so hard to tell, 'so hard to sing
Love's in vain

Far away, far away from it all
You can go behind the wall
Where Time begins to crawl
Where teardrops fall
Track Name: One More Cup
I fear the desperate face you pull and the pity that it calls
Just like this silly quest sunk in a drink called ''Suicide Roads''
Born to be smoked and fired in the deepest hell
Just like a bullet in flight I'm glad the curtain fell

One more cup...

You hate the resounding silence in your lucid self
Speechless inspirations
Who would have guessed

Once that you've decided on a writing in the dried up dawn
Recurrent drinking games with devils and saints

One more cup....

You've lost yourself on the sliding sips of ''Suicide Roads''
I'm upset and devasted
Who would have guessed?

One more cup....

Sweet sips for the dream...........
Track Name: In The Rain
There's a long-distance train rolling in the sun.
Crazy bullet of a gun.
There's a face she longs to touch,
He misses her so much.
In the rain.

She's not the kind of girl you can console.
But she sometimes fails in her control.
All she's ever wanted...
it's some cherries on her plate
In the rain.

She slowly stopped and chewed into the flesh
Of the delicious and forbidden fruit
With the juice running down her breast
The rainbow plays upon her.
In the rain.

She stopped the clocks, she began to write the book
In spite of all she knew, she never understood
That Sacrifice was the only code of the road
In the rain.

Cherry stones scattered all around,
No tree can grow from this dusty ground
No juice left, in the place
Only thousands pages
In the rain.

An old lion sleeping in a cage.
A tired woman in a rage
Wrinkles on her pretty face
Now her beauty's fading,
In the rain.

There's a long-distance plane flying through the cold.
Tears on the flowers that he holds.
There's a face he longs to touch,
He misses her so much.
In the rain.
Track Name: Simply Stare
I brought some flowers today
Picked them up for you on my way
Will you remember to give them a shelter
When I'm gone away from here?

I brought some funny grins today
Laughters and smiles have flown away
Will you remember to start them over
When I am gone away from here?

Well, it ain't no use to sit and wonder why
Well, it ain't no use to sit and search the light

Cos' if you simply stare
You will find someone who cares
If you simply hold me
You'll find someone who's there

I got some bitter mints today
My memories quickly faded away
Will you remember to make them sweeter
When dreams come and fade away.

Well, it ain't no use to sit and wonder why
Well, it ain't no use to sit and search the light

And if you simply stare
Well you'll find someone who cares
If you simply stare
You'll find someone who's there.

I brought some laughters today
Let them echo night and day
Will you remember to give them an answer
When tears roll down on your face?
When tears roll down on your face?
Track Name: The Last Train
Hey long sticky snake
Can you see me sitting here?
I won't furnish any proof
It's only the truth

Hey slow smokey snake
Can't you see I'm here to wait?
I'm just waiting for the night train
The night train

Let me choose the colors,
The moment, the chimes and the stage

Hey old spooky Mate,
Do you really mind my fate?
I'm facing your ghost train
Your ghost train

Hey old tricky son
Will you play with me this song?
Will you whistle the last verse
The last verse?

I'll be able to kill the light, to steal the night
Till you be there

Hey, old silly chum
Can't you hear the silent drum
Have you ever made the good choice?
Run or Burn !
Track Name: Drowned
Stay away from my window
Move back from my shadow
My feet are tired, my brain is wired
Adrift like an autumn leaf
I'm lost
You've stayed from my private glass
kept out of my intimate grass
Did you hear someone's distant fall?
Did you hear my desperate call?
I was lost...I have drowned

Like someone made of stone, someone left in the cold
Someone who'll die for you

Melt back into my grip
Not long before I fell and slipped
All is gone and all is chipped
I've lost sight of my own ship
I have drowned

Like someone made of stone
Someone left in the cold
Someone who'll die for you

Monsters knocked at my window
I moved away from my shadow
Here beneath the sky of waves
I guess I suffocate

I have drowned

Like someone made of stone
Like someone left in the cold
Someone who'll die for you

Like someone made of stone
Like someone left in the cold
Someone who died for you
Track Name: Felt
I know it sometimes takes a lifetime understanding love
I've no grounds for complaint
My heart still shelters a flame
And if my days never ring true
My nights sound like empty churches
I'll let my soul sing out

I know a love can be enough to understand life
The damaged child that I am
Turned his dreams into hopes
And if my toys are broken
My christmas tree switched off
I'll let my soul sing out

Oh Love I' ve never felt like this before...you

I know I don't need a reason to understand why
When a leaf falls on its own the leaf won't be alive
And if my years a burden
My eyes will shut in the end
I'll let my soul cry out
