Track Name: Prayer
Standing at the edge of the life,
I cry and pray
What's the line, that splits dignity, pride?
Where is my mistake?

I try to be the same as you,
But I could not reach
I'm too scared, I'm without faith,
Emptiness I preach

What is the thirst, that turns my mind upside down,
What do I miss?
Is it the world, or is it my pride?
I'm deaf, I'm blind

You helped every blind man
Please don't ignore me
I'm calling, o Lord, help me to see
Please open my eyes

Cause you are, the Light in the world that shines
I'm in the dark
Please hold my arm

Sitting like Martha, I listen to you
In my heart burns fire

Teach me your ways, o Lord, sweet are your words
Blessed is your mouth

I'm hungry, I'm thirsty, I'm blind I am deaf
Please feed me, please quench my thurst,
Please open my eyes

Yes you are, the food and the drink of life
Please lead my heart
Please lead my heart
Track Name: People
Why I notice this awful silence
Isn’t nobody ‘round here ?
I just see people without eyes
Without ears, without mouths

Nobody talks
Nobody hears nothing
Nobody speaks

Why I feel this awful feeling
Does everybody feels the same?
Why I feel so cold and lonely
Does anybody feel the same?

Nobody feels
Nobody’s cold and lonely
Nobody talks

I am talking to you
My friend, my lonely friend
I don’t know about you
But I just have to talk to you
Track Name: All The Time
All the time, I’m thinking about some funny things
All the time - about you

All about you, sometimes I can hardly understand
All the time – where are you

Where have you been, who have you seen
Are you happy, or lonely

Tell me your tears are just the same
They are so cold they play the game
Tell me your words are just the same
No truth, no shame

Tell me you never thought of us
‘Twas just a phase all our past
Tell me you never had the need
For love - my love

All the time, I'm walking around some lonely streets
All the time - I'm searching

All the rain, I think I absorb the freezing rain
All the time - I'm restless

I just have to live, to hate or forgive
I must go on searching
Track Name: Slushni Me
Допри ме, гушни ме, погледни ме, јас постојам,
Зборувај, не молчи, понеси ме во твојот свет
Се плашам сам да останам до крај

Години како дим исчезнуваат неповратно
Спомени, врежани во нишките на срцето
Јас не знам што се случува со нас

Зарем толку грешевме, а себе си се лажевме
Зарем толку верував, се надевав, а извисив

И останав на крај, чудно сам ненадејно
Во мислите те спомнувам, твојот лик повикувам

Слушни го, мојот глас, ние си припаѓаме
Слушни го мојот крик, се плашам сам да останам
Чудно сам разочаран и напуштен на крај

Помниш ли, зборувавме, нема да се лажеме
Зборови, зборови, пусти празни зборови
Ти всушност не веруваше во нас
