Track Name: Morning Bird
“Morning Bird”

The last shine of stars
Give us the last
But till next night

Before I will see
First light of the sun
She wakes up from her dream

Morning bird
Cold dew on our hands

This is the time
When she brushes her hair
Nature is coming back to life

I take an early walk
To meet her on the street
I know She will be there

Morning bird
Cold dew on our hands

We enjoy the silence
With love in our hearts
I know

Then we brake the silence till next
End of the long night

She is my

Morning bird
In my hand
Track Name: Private Ocean To Drift
"Private Ocean To Drift"

Did you
Ever think
It is gonna be that way
Front page
First breathe
Last page
Not necessary the end

Still so young
Still so brave
You are my future
You will be my past

I've got
Some plans
I've got you
On my mind
Wish to teach
Our son
To play drums

Like personal shadow
I'll be your man
Just want to feel your skin
Just want to feel your breathe
Just want to hear you speak
Private ocean to drift
Track Name: Recluse's Guide
„Recluse’s Guide”

Once you set off to know what life
Really is don’t move back, don’t stop
Arouse goodness in yourself
Expierience all sorts of things

Tread on evil
Improve everything that’s right

Create an artistic expression
And really is don’t move back
Don’t stop
Learn to know what is right
Don’t lower your eyes

Tread on evil
Don’t let your ideas get burried
Improve everything that’s right

Just to find myself in the very strange places
And scream loudly
Stay here
Because I want to walk you path
And feel your lips
On my little head
Now I’m saying
We don’t have time
Just to find only myself
In the very strange places
Track Name: In My Island
“In My Island”

In my Island
The sun’s still shining
In my best place
Roses are to be grown
Here is everything
What we can just wish
But it’s not point with luck
At the atmosphere
Of cold evening
We can perceive loneliness

And so what
If everything’s here
On my Island
Everything spreading and shining
I just want to know

Is this a place
Where I can easily breath?
Water-logged fields move my dreams
I don’t know this kind of feeling
I just know
That it won’t be implement
I’m sitting by a tree
Watching the sunset
A lot of thoughts are crowding in my head
But, for a while
I’m separating from them
To throw off this dreadful poise

The heart is saying it’s part
The mind is saying something different
Every one of them is special
Just like this happiness
That I’m always missing

The poetry is devouring my soul
But I’m becoming the emptiness
Life is hard to live through
But I’ve got the time
Because on my Island
Everything’s yellow and green
And the hum of the forest
Disrupts everything that’s wrong
Everything that’s wrong
