Track Name: Tombs Without Stones
I’ll see you soon
In a red cocktail dress
With covered knees
I'll see you shine brighter than sun
And I’ll lose my sleep again
And I’ll lose my sleep again
I'll see you soon
So careless, hovering above
The strangers starring in movies
With no main characters

You're a ghost I owe nothing to you
You are the past that I forgot
I carry this weight and wait the day
When I can finally be free and get rid of it

Till the day you came again to my foggy head
Ashamed of your nudity and my heart melted
Like on the sea bottom sinking caravel slowly began glowing
But would never sail again

I’ll see you soon
In a red cocktail dress
With covered knees
I'll see you shine brighter than sun
And I’ll lose my sleep again
And I’ll lose my sleep again
I'll see you soon
So careless, hovering above
The strangers starring in movies
With no main characters

And winter comes after the long hot summer
And warm days turn to cold nights
May be we'll turn these pages to spring
Where the valleys will turn green

I've been up all night
Watching the tail lights
On highway...
Winding away
Lights form the other stories
Where fates ain't so grey

And heartbreak will be so easy to forget

When the waves collide with black clouds
New city will grow above old graves
We are the ghosts of love that still have bodies
We are the tombs without stones
We'll never ever meet again
Track Name: Every Single Room
I come to terms
I accept the wrongs
And I don't feel regret
All The stones I'd thrown
Met the other ones
From the same causeway
With no direction
And we roam
This last road alone
To the end
Endlessly

I feel I feel
How days go by
You wait rebirth of wonders
I feel I feel
How waves of times collide
My bare feet leave no traces
And morning air hurts my lungs
Never looking back
It's all I want
It’s all I wanted
But unable to stop screaming
I hope I have enough strength to bear this cross

When we are gone
Who will live in our home?
Will they remove what we loved?
Will they throw away
All the boxes full of memories from the closet?

Warm wind still plays in their hairs
And dances with curtains
In every single room

What's gonna fill the hollow
When hollow filled it all
The every single room
The every single home
What's gonna fill the hollow
When hollow filled it all
The every single room
When we are gone

All I ever wanted
To accept the illusion
I live
Track Name: Furnace
Light a fire, and let it burn
And another road turns to the dead end
Hopeless men find themselves in the embers
Of their last night
In their last sleep
Where the wreckage of young dream
Sinks in everyday's routine

Keep the Home Fires Burning,
While your hearts are yearning,
Though your lads are far away
They dream of home,there's a silver lining
Through the dark clouds shining,
Turn the dark cloud inside out

Eyes open wide
If you can read between the lines
We’ll find a bridge across the endless sea
Of misunderstanding
But we'd better lock all doors and block our ears
Fill up our illusions with the honest
Honest, honest, sonnets

Keep the Home Fires Burning,
While your hearts are yearning,
Though your lads are far away
They dream of home,there's a silver lining
Through the dark clouds shining,
Turn the dark cloud inside out
Track Name: All Nighters, MD
“Roll down the window
What's mine is yours”
The waitress is down
The café is dead
We hide our tracks
In flaming foliage
And leaden lakes
We’ll start all over again
Somewhere at the end of the earth

I came out of Marshalls
I walked down to the Movie theatre
I turned to the right and I was sure
I would find him smiling and smoking
And my bicycle in the utility room

We were the best of friends
I would never know another you
We were the best ones

I found a home away from home
I found myself
So happy
So welcome
I found a home away from home
I lost the key
I hope you still wait for me

If you swim fast now,
Does something still hold you back?
Does it make you sometimes
Stop and stare
Sinking slowly
Then talk to someone
But this one will never be me?

I hope you know I tried to find you man
Confide, I'll give anything to get it back

I found a home away from home
I found myself
So happy
So welcome
I found a home away from home
I lost the key
Track Name: Loving Son
Stay outta line
And finally
I’m sinking by your side
Burn yourself empty
In the fear
Keep our faithfulness alone

"I fell out the hole that's now your heart
Baby
And stuck in another one"
Mother looks at the kids
Kids look at mother’s tears
And finally father says

“So many hopes and ways for you to walk, careless son, little son, faithful son
Life will bury your dream deep into the ground, my loving son”

Fuck these beautiful shelters
Money-based family values
And whorehouses filled
With respectable fathers

And never the twain shall meet
But befall in the same way
Rose faded in garden and
Rose wrapped in cellophane

“So many hopes and ways for you to walk, careless son, little son, faithful son
Life will bury your dream deep into the ground, my loving son”

We all deserve the warm only from drawn sun by black-eyed boy
