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 My Dreams Are Perfect
All my dreams are perfect
All my thoughts are just so good
All my movements show that I am alright, ok
All my visions are clear
All my friends are chosen well
All my words and gestures are so suitable, so neat
But all my heart is empty
And all myself is getting bored
I wonder if my thoughts and visions, are all I am
I guess that I am free
I guess that this is all my life
But then I wonder why I feel so unsociable
I am doing fine
I am doing wonderful
Everything is magic
I am keeping smooth and cool
All my shirts are clean
And all my jobs are done in time
I pay all my bills, I pay for all my needs, I pay
I work in the city
My payslip shows it all
I think about my mortgage, pension, tax return, my car

I am doing fine
I am doing wonderful
Everything is cool,
I’m keeping in control
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: Silence
Silence I see, silence I hear, silence I feel – around me
Silent are you, silent am I, silent is all, and that’s so strange
Oh, do you feel, lonely as me, something is wrong, I don’t know what
Please hold my hand, look at my eyes, don’t say a word
I don’t know what is wrong, but I know I love you so
I don’t know what’s the truth, but I love you

Look at my eyes, tell me the truth, do you stil feel the same I do
Tell me the truth, don’t let our love, be less than it, it ought to be
I drink tonight, I sing tonight, I cry tonight - for all of those
People that dream, people that hope, people that love
I don’t know what is wrong, but I know I love you so
I don’t know what’s the truth, but I love you
Track Name: Slushni Me
Dopri me, gušni me, pogledni me, jas postojam,
Zboruvaj, ne molči, ponesi me vo tvojot svet
Se plašam sam da ostanam do kraj
Godini kako dim isčeznuvaat nepovratno
Spomeni, vrežani vo niškite na srceto
Jas ne znam što se slučuva so nas
Zarem tolku greševme, a sebe si se laževme
Zarem tolku veruvav, se nadevav, a izvisiv
I ostanav na kraj, čudno sam nenadejno
Vo mislite te spomnuvam, tvojot lik povikuvam
Slušni go, mojot glas, nie si pripaǵame
Slušni go mojot krik, se plašam sam da ostanam
Čudno sam razočaran i napušten na kraj
Pomniš li, zboruvavme, nema da se lažeme
Zborovi, zborovi, pusti prazni zborovi
Ti vsušnost ne veruvaše vo nas


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
