lyrics

INSTEAD

one more time you keep the language wrong to save the meaning
time to get ahead to the end and back ... to the beginning
in stead of all those steps you use to hide instead
leaving pale puddles in the air
reading pale footsteps on a sound

one more time you keep the voice down to release the feeling
time to get ahead to the end and back ... back to the meaning
in stead of all those steps you use to hide instead
leaving pale puddles in the air
reading pale footsteps on a sound

Now come to spread your wasted pride
surviving through the back door
you've got to get back to see how long it burns
you've got to get a back door
you've got to get back to get out from the front
you've got to get back home
you've got to get back to wash your wasted love
you've got to get up before
you've got to get up before falling down again

now that is time get ahead to the end and back ...
mhhhhh ... time get ahead to the end and back
back to that meaning.

GLASGOW

The girl of the fifth floor's alone ... she has a piano
Pics of the past on the shelf, memories ... Glasgow
It's not there is not room enough for the love in that reign
It is just that is perfect for cups of tea and for smiles

She loves to paint and the shame is that we did not talk about
she loves to paint and the shame is that we did not talk about

The aforementioned girl has job, she works in another world
Andes are far and it's not a shame, It's just fear
Journeys and stories and pencils and songs it sounds so real
But she's back every time in a dress that shows what she is not

'Cause she loves to paint and the shame is that we did not talk about
she loves to paint and the shame is that we did not talk about

I'm not allowed to go on
i'd better stop
Glasgow forgive me
i'm not allowed to go on
Are you still waiting for me to write back ?
are you kidding me ?
Glasgow i've never been there
but somehow now you're mine too

she loves to paint and the shame is that we did not talk about
she loves to paint and the shame is that we did not take a bow

PLANETUNE

No noone is safe, in the 2nd week of the year
when the weather is like in may
No noone is wise enough fathers are trading my snow
for a plastic new sun
and if nothing is all nothing seems wrong
Oh noone is you when you say this is not mine
this is not what i need
cause till nothing is all nothing will ever change

and how can the ocean be like a friend
how the ground can resist to the weight of this hate
how can the wind forget all the shit that we shoot in the air
we are dead and too busy to care

And if nothing is real heroes today come from a TV show
so that nothing makes sense
and the poet and scientist words are not relevant
= Nothing is all, nothing is wrong

we are dead and too busy to care
to care ... to care ... to care ...
to stare.

and if nothing is all no place is home
oh if nothing is all, all must be changed
cause if nothing is all, noone is you

DEAL (instrumental)
