Track Name: Tearless Man
Tearless man

The guy who tells the hour by looking at the sun
Got a cloudy day and missed his bus
The boy that walks the dogs got a bite
From an elderly grumpy cat
Frankie's toupee became punk
this is what I've heard from the tearless man

The butcher's wife ran away
With a hook-handed swiss fisherman
High hopes vanished with the atomic bomb
And safe sex's lost somewhere in Rome
Old stories are no longer told
And reason and common sense are long gone
this is what the tearless man has told

That rookie actor Harry forgot his lines
Lone rider lost the silver's reins
mickey the mouse's been seen drunk in a bar
this been told by the tearless man
Track Name: Skyfall

if the sky falls down tonight
it won't cover up all the lies
hell will rise with cocaine eyes

there'll be nothing left for us
burned in flames of selfishness
frozen in sins still unmade
rich and poor in the same unbereable cage
all tided up to the very same chain

and it all will come to this
the greatest souls will run thin
what can we expect from all we've seen
redemption is a dream growing dim
in the steep way to calvary

but don't you worry about that my friend
no one knows and no ones tells
so if you the light is shining bright
as you are going down you path
be aware it might blacken out
Track Name: Moving Target
Moving Target

You aim to high, you aim to low
target's moving in front of your nose
you are all set up to make the trip
but destination is not yet fixed

walk to the sun, you see a storm
on the horizon, and coming up
misfortune comes unforeseen
you look around yourself so helplesly

life's a target, tough to fetch
days are stored in oblivion
we pile them up, we call them back
just when we need to keep a life

24 hours the world needs to turn
in just one second our own could change
we do it right, we do it wrong
at the end no matter, no at all

today you are here tomorrow there
the target's moving yet motionless
Track Name: Now You are Gone
Now you are gone

and who will pick up the phone those lonely nights
who will come to you as friend when you are sad
is it true that you closed your house?
and a dropping nail could be heard a thousand miles away
did your enemies vanished from your nightmares?
did you thrive to have the laxest life?
I bet your hair's plait still shines on
the very same one you denied to be touched
you made it clear you were bored of me
are there any embers still?
you've always had painful thoughts dwelling in your mind

I was too mundane, not exactly the charming kind
I didn't glow I didn't stand out
no matter now, because you are gone
though I've always told you what I thought
Track Name: Because of the moon
Because of the moon

I crossed this bridge a winter night
I would have swam if you had asked
the night was cold and the wind blew strong
and found myself undressed outdoors

now I know
you disappear without goodbye
you left me silent as if I were in mass
there's no hard feelings I understand
I'm just a bit a dreaming man
now I know
because of the moon I followed you

the fog grew thick and it grew strong
I couldn't see where I'd gone
it was swamp or it was quicksand
I felt my legs pretty tied up

the morning came my hands we pale
I didn't want to see the light
appearing from the eastern side
because I'll vanish like a vampire
because of the moon I followed you
Track Name: Leah's Tender Eyes
Leah's Tender eyes

Leah sees the world with other eyes
they can't be ignored
they warn you they are true
they read your soul
while you lay down beside her

Leah's tender eyes

her skirt dances as she walks
her smile says thousand sweet words
she stands up with a fist in her hand
she finds at night her lover one
a soul that lost its path

if you meet Leah's eyes in you life
be sure to treat her right
she's so sweet and kind
and she knows what she does

I met her back in those times
when I coulnd't see wrong from right
she took me in her cosy arms
and consoled me day and night
Track Name: Psychosomatic Blues
Psychosomatic Blues

brain is in my stomach
heart is in my mouth
want to go north
my feet point south
I got the psychosomatic blues

doctor, doctor doctor
analyze my brain
organize me doctor
doctor ease my pain
I got the psychosomatic blues

I feel dizzy I cannot breathe
think I might be getting something
I might be allergic to you all
might be allergic to the sun
I got the psychosomatic blues

think i need a blood test
might get me a brain scan too
just to check that I'm not bad
besides all the things I have
I got.....
Track Name: One of Us Must Say Goodbye
One of us should say goodbye

You don't need my permission to finish it up
we know from the start, we were playing with knives
I'd like to know what it is in your head
or if you've got echoes of repent that might hurt
one of us should say goodbye

I will never regret, the time that we've spent
the songs that we've listened to, the words that we've said
I'd opened my chest, you've opend your legs
then you've cast a spell, the kind that I can't break

the time was witness of the age the lust
you were thinking of summer, I was thinking of fall
we loved each other in springtime, till winter came upon
we still needed each other, but like junkies of love
Track Name: Staring at the Whiskey Glass
staring at the whisky glass

staring at the whisky glass
I wonder if I should have drunk, so much
I dont know if it made me well
though I've never drunk to forget, that way
the waitress tells me it's closing time
I say I haven't had so much, but I have
I want to take you out of my mind
but you are pretty much stuck to my heart, and I can't
long time ago I was your man
but seems you have forgotten that, oh it seems like that
Your endless silence makes me think
that you have had enough from me, well did you have?
I ought to tell you I'm feeling down
and prozac doesn't help so much, it does not much
I look for an answer in the sky tonight
but cannot find a single star, replying me back
I only aks you one more thing
please don't ever forget me dear, would you dear?
"you are the only one" once I said
I'll take that statement to my grave, sooner or later
I'm gonna look for another bar
and start to write you another lines, 'till you reply
again I'm staring at the whisky glass
it seems I'm gonna stick to that, for quite a long time
