Track Name: 01 - Stargazer
Thousand springs ago, a part of me was there
Universe is calling, Mirror symmetry
Stones point to the stars,
Stars point to the stones

We’re caught into this amber drop
Our lives won’t end but can’t keep on
These stones mirror the sky on earth tonight

It’s a magic birth
It’s a mystic age
Read the prophecy
Written in the Sky
Track Name: The Preacher
A voice calls me in a dream
An ancient calling in the howling wind
Pale grey dawn over the hills
Outside my door the small town sleeps
Hypnotized, I feel no scared
I know it’s something that gotta be made
The time has come, I have to leave
I need no baggage for this trip
Follow the path, the fathers speak to me
Vertigo of shadows in the circle of their dance

The Preacher speaks in the Native Tongue
He’ll never speak to an heart of stone
Skin and bones, long white hair
His eyes are black wells deep like hell
He strains his arm, open his fist
Five small bones he gives to me
What is dream? And what is real?
In this desert I make a deal.

Falling in trance, the fathers dance with me
Vertigo of shadows, of the ghost dancers
Dance with the dead, holy smoke, beat of drums
The preacher rise up, and drive me into the dance.

On this higher plain he waited for me
Alone in desert for 9 long years
A lonely preacher in leather clothes
A goatskin flask and a silver cross
I’m drowning slowly in these sands
Sky is changing, clouds run fast
Heavy dark clouds are over me
All words were spoken the seed was spread
Track Name: Downtown in the Morning
Walkin’ around in downtown, step by step
My head is floating fluffy in the air
I don’t care of nothing, the children smile
Too much colours shining, too much light
A blue whale now swims down in the bus-lane
Cars are driven by monkeys and there’s a yellow sky today

Loud laughters, clowns dancing
An alien barmaid pours me beer
Ladies screaming, toads croaking
My selling rate comes to a head

I walk around in downtown
Crawling through the crowd
An old man and his lady look
Astonished and outraged

Loud laughters, clowns dancing
An alien barmaid pours me beer
Ladies screaming, toads croaking
My selling rate comes to a head
Loud laughters, pigs snorting
Smartly sharks wait for the brunch
Belly-dancers, sad minstrels
I drink my beer and I watch the show

I walk around in downtown, my feet don’t touch the ground
My Head is floating free in the morning sounds
I don’t care of nothing please buy me a drink
And I’ll keep on walking softly with the morning breed

Loud laughters, clown dancing
The alien barmaid now smiles at me
Girls screaming, children singing
Outside the window the world pass by
Loud laughs, crowd screaming
Their voices enter into my head
Don’t stop laughing, don’t stop screaming
I drink the last beer and I’ll join you
Track Name: Endless Summer
Orange blast in a burning sunset
The road is a scar on the skin of the earth
Windscreen crashing in a dazzling light
But still we ride across the sky
Still we ride across the sky

Eyes of gold sleeps by my side
The taste of life is in my mouth
Our skin is cracked by the red dust
Sun in Leo reigns in the sky

Still we run from dark to light,
Orion dogs watch over us
No surrender and ready for the flight
The Great Hunter rules in the sky

Flying over the top of the higher mountains
Floating over the forests of a virgin world
Looking for the place where the truth is kept
Looking for the place where we can be free
Track Name: Sailing by Sight
Sailing by sight, I drive into a sultry night
Stars by my side, gravity chains my thoughts to the ground

Sailing by sight, day by day, night after night
Hung by your lies, you don’t mind if I’m burning inside
Sailing by sight, without a compass, without a light
No mercy in your eyes
To be with is been like a fight

No mercy in your eyes
Hanged from your lies
Disgust in your eyes

Paranoid eyes
Track Name: The Valley
You and me and our friends, exploring valleys of green
Emerald winter path marked by the warm of the sun
Surrounded by evergreen, a slow parade through the ancient oak-trees
In the silence, mushrooms singing nursery rhymes of childhood’s days

Suddenly into the glade
We felt her presence but we weren’t afraid
We heard her voice talking through the trees
A softly sound blowing in the breeze
“Silver Veins was my regal name
I’ve been here before the human’s age
Man forgot his thoughtful mother
Man betrayed his lovely sister

Believe in me, these stones can speak
Put the right question, don’t waste this trip.
Remember me and these rusty pylons
These crumbled walls of broken bricks.
Grey ruins into the sacred forest
Men’s failure lie in eternal rest
The Iron Century of man suffering
In my maternal embrace has its silent decay”.
Track Name: Dragonfly Pilot
Look at me, my face
Now whipped by the wind
Look these hands, I still can’t believe to what I’ve seen
Out of breath, two suns in the Doomsday sunrise
A dark cloud has chained the night to the ground

When I learned to fly, I felt like god
Sat in the cockpit of glass,
Swimmin’ in the infinite blue

We were looking for the atomic sunrise
We were waiting for the Hell to come

When I learned to fly I was the king of the World
Sittin’ in the cockpit of glass, swimming in the infinite blue
Under a leather helmet
Pointing at the Sun
Riding a Dragonfly
Between the sea and sky
Track Name: Tiger Mozquitos
Sleeping wet on summer afternoon
Bited by mosquitoes, I had a dream
The Air Cavalry was riding above the beach
And we were fighting against the Japaneses
