Track Name: Genius
Came from a different world,
You think I’m dumb but I’m not.
Maybe I see things that you don’t!
Who knows?
People in the street,
Yeah… Give me dirty looks
Really believe I’m a fool?
Who cares?
Psychological tests,
They can’t see beyond my face
Why am I in this odd place?
Don’t know
Who will realize
I just want a normal life
Maybe somebody understands
One day!
You poor thing! Genius boy
Genius, the new Einstein doctors said,
But he’s just a brilliant boy,
waiting for some good friends.
He comes from other world,
I think he sees things we don’t
He is not as fool as we thought
Who knows?
Who will realize
He just wants a normal life
You poor thing, prodigious boy
Track Name: Settle Down
Wake up, it’s your morning
Slow down, stop that yawning
‘Cos now it’s time to leave your bed,
It’s time to enjoy yourself
She would dance as you dance everywhere
It’s such a hard life
They think you’re lazy, you don’t mind
People say you’ve got to get a life
They say you’d better settle down
They always think they’re right
Wake up, your babe’s waiting
Slow down, you want to get it
They think you’re lazy, you don’t mind
People say you’ve got to get a life
They say you’d better settle down
They always think they’re right
Oh day after day
Having such a good time
As if there’s no tomorrow
Try swaying my way
They think you’re lazy, you don’t mind
People say you’ve got to get a life
They say you’d better settle down
They always think they’re right
They think you’re lazy, you don’t mind
People say you’ve got to get a life
They say you’d better settle down
They always think they’re right
Track Name: Perry Smith
If you feel alone
If you feel ashamed
And you don’t find, no you don’t find
Nobody to be with
Just call him, and then it’s sadness end
No doubt your man is Perry Smith
If you’re feeling down
If your life is dead
I hope you know just what to do
Now you know who to talk to
Just call him, and then it’s sadness end
No doubt your man is Perry Smith
What you do tonight?
Hey boys, don’t worry about it, oh no
It could be the happiest day of your lives
For a petty amount
What you do tonight?
Hey boys, don’t worry about it, oh no
It could be the happiest day of your lives
For a petty amount
Just call him, and then it’s sadness end
No doubt your man is Perry Smith
No, no doubt. No.
Track Name: The Story of the Dry Hole Man
I live in a dirty hole, wasting my time.
My fairy enlightens me slowly.
Roses are red, but I see dwarves,
I try to catch them, my Lord;
I want them all for me.
Eating forty tangerines is not enough for me
I can see my whole life passing by
Now I’m lying on the floor the kitchen is so far
Lucky me! Now my friend is a rat.
Walking is my sorrow now, I won’t do it again
You know, my fairy doesn’t love me.
Hate the bus, it feels like a different world
And I cry and cry again,
Oh I won’t see your tower no, no more…
Eating forty tangerines is not enough for me
I can see my whole life passing by
Now I’m lying on the floor the kitchen is so far
Lucky me! Now my friend is a rat.
Now I feel so lonely, now I feel, so, so sad. Oh so sad.
So won’t you please, please come back to me again?
Now I live in a dirty hole, I’m the man of the dirty hole!
Track Name: K.F.J
There was, once upon a time, there was
There was a man who said he was touched
By God, a chosen one
So he started travelling in his Messiah clothes
And then the people started calling him a hoax
And the only miracle the old can remember
Happened when he vanished into the crowd
Oh yeah!
No one else saw Messiah since then
No one else saw Messiah since the
He’s gone!
Yes, they said: “he’s gone!”
Some fools thought he could save us
And followed him, but soon, they found him out
And no one else saw “Messiah” since then
Since he vanished off the face of Earth
When he left everything turned shady,
The man was in front of a million eyes, now he’s gone
They lost track of the guy, oh no way,
I can’t find any shaft of light.
So he started travelling in his Messiah clothes
And then the people started calling him a hoax
But they started thinking something was going wrong
Lord, when he spread the word…
Why so kind? I’ve never, never, never, ever
I’ve never seen such a man, gotta catch him out! (x4)
Where did Messiah come from?
Could’ve brought back some hope
Thanks to you now he’s gone
Gone!
Track Name: Outside the Mirror
She was a pale reflection of your luck
Half of the troubled pieces of your mind
Never cared about her… “She will be alright”
You’ll learn your reds and greens and blues
She was a shiny girl who lost her light
Began to fade away on waves and wires
Never cared about her… “She will be alright”
You’ll learn your reds and greens and blues
Oh, oh
She won’t be your mirror by the sea! (x4)
Once you were sure all that was glittering gold
Expecting her to be forever yours
It will be too late… “Too late”
You’ll learn your reds and greens and blues
Oh, oh
She won’t be your mirror by the sea!
Will be too late
She won’t be your mirror by the sea!
Picked up her soul
She won’t be your mirror by the sea!
Now you can stay
She won’t be your mirror by the sea!
Your mirror’s gone
Track Name: Albert's Connection
Know who I talk about
No matter what you say
I’m just what you have been.
What do you recall?
Tell me where beauty lies
Showing you reality
Look at the one who’s smiling there
Just ‘cos she wants to die
She wants some freedom, somebody
Why not now? Why not Albert?
I know how you feel
I know what you believe
What do you know about me?
We’re connected now,
You cannot flee from this
New blind immensity
I’ll never leave you alone, my friend
Be with you till the end
Your latest day will show the way
Why not now? Why not, Albert?
Why not today?
We’re one till then
Do everything I’ve told you
it’s your life
It’s up to you
Try to take your pain away, oh
No, you can’t
Know who I talk about
No matter what you say
I’m just what you have been.
What do you recall?
Tell me where beauty lies
Showing you reality
Albert
We’re one till then
Track Name: Firstman
Having dinner with my old freak friends,
Hearing the news ‘bout wars, fearing attacking planes.
Incoming nuclear, my life is just the start,
I am the first man.
I’m a God, alone I will survive,
Fighting bombs and saving humankind
Locked up my house so well, no one could get inside,
I am the first man
Ooh, I am the first man
What was wrong?, I didn’t hear at all,
No bombs, no planes, no people screaming in flames,
I turned the TV on, it seemed to be a joke,
Won’t be the first man. No more.
Weak and down, that's how I started feeling
Shame on me! There is no crown
I can see my thoughts my plans all creeping
Alone I'll die to be a damn unknown
My dreams got lost, I won’t succeed no more,
A sealed bomb shelter is my home, sweet home.
Who will open the door?, I’m sure I’ll die alone,
Won’t be the first man. No more.
Weak and down, that's how I started feeling
Shame on me! There is no crown
I can see my thoughts my plans all creeping
Alone I'll die to be a damn unknown
Track Name: The Sea I
Dreaming… lying
Living… trying
Standing, trying to feel it’s alright
Living a blinding dull light
Dreaming I’m not lying at all
‘Cos now everything has turned to seem
As if all that I want were inside
Just staring at the sea
Helps me easing my worn out mind
Everything has turned to seem
As if all that I knew were all gone
Just staring at the sea
Helps me easing my worn out mind
Day by day, the same old cliffs
I stand ignoring what they mean, no!
Day by day, just harmless peace
Just me, me and the sea
Now God knows what it’s like
To think outside for a while
I don’t care about it, they’re gone
Now I know how it feels
Just standing and feeling fine
As if all that I want were here
Day by day, the same old cliffs
I stand ignoring what they mean, yeah
Day by day, just harmless peace
Just me, me and the sea
Don’t need to think about you,
To think about another life
I don’t care about it it’s all gone
Now I know how it feels
Just standing here, on my shore
As if all that I want were here
Just a piece who has found
The puzzle where it comes from
I don’t care about you, now you’re gone
Now I know how it feels
Just standing here on my own
Trying without you, but lying here, oh
Standing and trying to feel it’s alright
Here I am standing; I know
What bliss does mean at last
I hear a voice, hey man, dream on
Her voice, hey man, dream on
I wonder how could I get here
Standing here I feel fine
I wonder what would you say
What’s the story? It’s alright
I wonder how could I leave my way
Standing here I feel fine
I wonder what would you say
Waves are soothing my mind
I wonder how could I leave my way
Standing here I feel fine
I wonder what would you say
Waves are still soothing my mind
I hear her calling
Hey man, dream on, leave without trace
I dream I’m not lying
Just here standing on the wrong place
The wrong place
Yes, it takes me out, still dreaming
The wrong place
Lying, trying to dream I’m feeling
Fine
Track Name: The Sea 2
My mind’s about to fall
Can’t find strength enough for carrying on
Need to find you I feel your hands fading out
Reflections of a mirror, it’s falling deep too
As every river’s still running to the sea
My nights are still dreaming of you
Bring it back, light up my soul
Please, release me softly and let it go
Let it wonder
Fine, the depths, your voice
Came from a different world,
You think I’m dumb but I’m not.
Maybe I see things that you don’t?
