Track Name: A Town's Confession
A call, a whisper in the night
A shout for help
As I fall to the bottom
Of an ocean of blackness

While they take away my sight
I recall a hotel wall
Oh blindness
Old memories

Expectation of love and salvation held me back
Lack of vision, odd shades and illusions, hid my path

It goes, it shivers in the light
Ashes awake
As I feast on my sorrow
And those ghosts stand here faceless

Shadow’s eyes on my back
Still faithful to his oath
Oh Charon
Longs for me

Expectation of love and salvation, for only light
Lack of vision, odd shades and illusions now hold me tight
Track Name: Zorra
Oh Zorra is this a trick of the light?
For there’s a sly shadow roaming with me tonight
Don't bother swimming dive, down under the veil
This dream will die alone in those streets where you used to live

Zorra, in those lights
Your eyes seem so frightening at my sight
We’ve got a good way to lay ourselves
In such a wrong way we waste ourselves

With sore eyes, soon you'll realise
That the heart can't dive and still make it out alive
We rise high, then sink low
We run down the seesaw

Zorra, is this a trick of the light?
For there’s a sly shadow laying with me tonight
Track Name: Wake-Up Call
It's falling down like running water
And now the lights go out
I know you don't know where you run
I know you don't know where you run

Will you remember
It's like a hurricane
Call it a death wish
You hurt the friends you keep

You hurt the friends you keep
You hurt the friends you keep
You hurt the friends you keep
Come around

It's falling down like running water
And now the lights go out
I know you don't know where you run
I know you don't know where you run

You walk in the streets
You're walking in a dream
Caught in a death trap
You hurt the friends you keep

You hurt the friends you keep
You hurt the friends you keep
You hurt the friends you keep
You hurt the friends you keep
Come around

It's falling down like running water
And now the lights go out
I know you don't know where you run
I know you don't know where you run

It's falling down like running water
And now the lights go out
I know you don't know where you run
I know you don't know where you run
