Track Name: Amusement Park
Jokey tunes lower along this freaky beach
To dismantle the attractions
Dispersed with the crowd, forgotten the key
Or stolen, the gate chained and locked

Connection is sweet syntony, imperfect harmonious mutual, the deepest melody
Transmission in sync needy of punctuality to prove the truth through apparent sincerity

Neglected boyfriend on the ferris wheel
Abandoned, disillusioned
Resigned, he isn't exactly about to kneel
And go below, wanna behold

Arrived, the time, lonely with yourself more and more fragile
Misunderstand me, then you'll regret me
49 slowly wiped tears down to your chest forcing to realize
a part is missing, his pure kisses...innocent kisses

Gone lost something called simplicity
You lost it, you lost that
Ability to notice shades of intimacy
The lens for Romanticism...

Science of passion, discrepancies
Based on a spark, inflaming a star


At midnight the spotlights watched me under, suffocate but survive
You'd rather hurt me and be selfish (and egocentric)
Hypnotized by those lies so repressed even for my tender eyes
Romantic teacher of how love used to be

Arrived, the time, lonely with yourself more and more fragile
Misunderstand me means a refusal to me
Track Name: Fine (Let's Take A Ride)
There shouldn't be a race
Between a turtle and a snail
But a walk to take

You were told that I'm fine
Without you
And what if in the end
That wasn't true

Let's take a ride
Let's take a ride inside

Each one in our own shell
