Track Name: Dry well
So let me share my story about this dry well
Drained for all who passes by
But Wet for me as hell


I'm sleeping in a well of tears
She cuts the climbing rope
I try to swim in fears
and float like cork on top

This is the well that she creates to hide some more
Memories that fade as I grow old.
Yeah Like a fortune teller
She knows it all
Seems like demons knocking my back-door

Trapped if I take decisions
Trapped if I ask for help
And even if I know the reasons
Trapped in her fucking well


This Dry well, it knows it all
Track Name: Perfect man
The story of your perfect man
Can guide you to the darkest sun
When your soul is feeling blue
He's carrying eyes will always be with you

And when the lights are going down
He grants you with his deepest bow
treats you like a perfect man


Big bright eyes and friendly smile
Shiny costume every night
Time goes by, now crowd is gone
At his nasty Lair alone
Incomplete and insecure



His home a mess his a filthy prick
His closet neat with wool and silk
A closet full of skins to wear
Each skin a role, a role to serve

And if you ask him don't be sure
Behind his story lies the truth
Like stories of a perfect man
Track Name: One way road
The pupils of my eyes are wide
I just wanted a joyride
But now I'm speedin'
There is no turn to save my self
I Don't give a dime to save myself
Your aura smells like dead end

And still my fortune shows
Things that I've never chose
Unfinished one way road
Named after love

Your wishes set by storybooks
Your mama said you've got the looks
But now she's weeping
Your daddy gambles likes some chicks
shelter made of broken bricks
And that's the story

You give me names you call me prince
Using me to kill the beast
The beast that growls inside me
That's all I've got, that's what I need
My storybook for you to read
My own perceptions




You can never see me, walking in the streets
You see footsteps, traces of my presence
on the road and on the pavement
the trail of doubt I leave behind
You can never hear me talking about birds and bees
You hear my voice, it strays like a leaf dancing on a breeze
that blows from different directions every day
on every corner, in every alleyway
It is you that follows me around, you are my shadow
my ego on the wall, when I look behind my back
I see you as a shade, covering the tracks in which I dwell
and then again I fall, into the dry well
Track Name: Crown of shame
The leafs of my age Are falling down
The shades of my life Colored brown
The wistful scent of breeze's gown
Reminds me all the years I count


What I've learned is what I chose to learn
And all this sense is what I choose to spread
Foolproof like all the other men
All that I gain, Is lore embedded in a crown of shame
I wear it to dethrone myself


And all my years are passing by but why
An empty canvas colored white
I paint my deeds I paint my crimes, wasted tries
A life of vows composed by lies

All those vows
Are laying down now
I see them burn
No turning back now
And When I'm through
The leafs will fall

The shades will burn
Once for all
Track Name: Till i close my eyes
Writing my will for those
Waiting on hades doors

Till i close my eyes
no step back, no compromise
no debt to defray
No borders that I couldn't brake
Till i close my eyes
I'll color moments by your side
And change this state
Grey I'll fade

Writing my will for those
Waiting on hades doors


Till i close my eyes
Till i watch my last sunrise
I'll fix what I broke
And scream for the things I never spoke
gonna turn around the clock
Erase the wrinkles of my soul
Grow young to be reborn
not enough to make me stop



Seize the day
Cause all will fade
Piled in line passing the hades doors
Losing the life that flows
Track Name: A shelter
Can you see the man that I became?

As the well was my shelter, I shed my shadow

left it lying on the floor, in front of the closet

in whichI hid my crown of shame

I walk without the weight of doubt

Stand among you as an equal

And I look upon what I have gained

hope remains that I will find

a house of light to lock away my darkness

Would you believe me when I told you

that I’ve never made mistakes?

Would you trust me with your secrets

If you knew that I had none?
Track Name: Hope remains
Burns like a flame,
what the human race has never blamed
Newborn baby shines like a gem.
A point in the map of history may change
Time has come to criticise myself.
I became like those I used to blame
Like my silent parents,
like my foolish race.
Never wrong, I'm always right,
I've never made mistakes.


Those who stands, are those we blame.
That's the rotten world that we create.
What the hell !!!
Who is right? Without a try?
What the hell we gonna leave behind??
Such a shame...


Leave them young to do some great mistakes
Make them strong no matter what it takes
because orders ,orders ,orders has made us all the same
we're hiding back from our childhood boogie man



Those who stands, are those we blame.
That's the rotten world that we create.
What the hell !!!
Who is right? Without a try?
What the hell we gonna leave behind??
Such a shame

Burns like a flame, what the human race has never blamed
