Track Name: Ancient Lies
Walking to the river where you used to feed the birds and fish
You've grown braver Now you are gone with your ancient dreams

Trapped in your eyes, can't look back straight to the crystal balls
Trapped in my lies till now

Was it wind or water?
I saw a figure in blur, I knew it's so familiar
Tried to say something worthwhile,
but no words came out


Mistrusted realities when I failed to keep away the bees
"Don't you never lie, child. Lie to yourself, but don't tell lies to me"

Trapped in your eyes, can't look back straight to the crystal balls
Trapped in my lies, from that day

Was it wind or water?
I felt a touch on my cheek
that made me feel I'm so week
Tried to say something worthwhile,
but no words came out
Track Name: Tame The Dog
You are my sunshine so I look away
coz it's too bright you can burn my eyes

I can keep myself safe in the womb
Bitter liquid through my throat
Discreet silence from their mouth

I can still feel your eyes in my room
Your heat kills all of my bees
and it hurts my little heart

Don't know why but I can't stand the sight
The faithful dog wagging its tail outside

You don't know me dear sunshine
You can't ease me dear sunshine
But how do I look to you?
Can you reach me?
Only if I can bear your warmth
Only if I can tame the dog
Track Name: Eleven Brothers
Rabbit stew with red wine
A perfect meal for lonely night
He shares with eleven brothers
Living above his doorway

Doctors agree that he's fine
Dreamt of blackbirds in day light
And his quartet plays
For the End of Time

The memory crawls up through his spine
The puzzled faces in his sight
Though (the) brothers trynna hinder
Him from running away

Abandoned cars and smoked hives
Where he and eleven brothers play
And the soloist plays
For the end of time

Ah he's alright
it's just this world confusing and grueling that wore him out
Ah he'll be fine
It's that love is so great to have and so painful to lose

Ah he'll soon find
That he ends up with nothing looking for the same shape of joy
Track Name: Smokebees
You wake me up out of reality
Out of nothingness I suffer
I sing as long as I can dream with you

I want you to know that I'm grateful
For hint of light in swirling darkness
I sing as long as you can dream with me
