Track Name: Smile ;)
Show me your yellow teeth
Don't be shy, shine with me
Laugh, be rough, run and jump
All is allowed, look at my thumb

CHORUS
It's up

Here is the grass, there the sea
Enjoy all, don't stop for tea
I'm a taxi driver, you the passenger
With happiness sad ones become transgender

CHORUS
It's up (still)

Oh they stole your sandwiches
And oh you fell down from the peak
Neither loser nor cooler
Who says “ha-ha” is simply really human

CHORUS
It's up (still)
Track Name: Tears and Blood
I shed tears and blood
With all that barred my flood
Stuck here in my throat
Like a knot choking every thought

I shed tears and blood
With all that barred my flood
Drops of shame bitterly salt
Streaming down to heal my faults

Dry my cheeks and damp my wounds
Even with the same tissues

CHORUS
asking you
Fill the sheets
A bathroom door
Or only a nose
From your tummy
This emptiness
Such a gorge
Or no more words
Amidst our bed

I shed tears and blood
With all that barred my flood
Flowers, pebbles, lots of sparks
A small tower, crabs in our marks
(there were)

I shed tears and blood
Of joy with liberation
Then I came to the sea eventually
Before the wave broke against the reef

CHORUS
Fill this sleep
A bathroom door
Or only a nose
From your tummy
This emptiness
Such a gorge
Or no more words
Amidst our bed
Fill the sheets...

Fill tonight
Some rain
Or an hour delay
To blow out the light

Keep me tightly...
Stand by me
Track Name: The Waves of Spain (feat. Elena)
Blow a small soap bubble higher
Chased by gulls gliding light blue skies

Quickly to you

I get lost, my eyes dematerialize
In a million fluorescent dots scattered wide

Quickly to you
Because it's true that I miss you

CHORUS
And even all my soul
It's running away
On a free seahorse
Taming the waves of Spain

I miss it all too...

Kisses in the air like butterflies
On Jasmine flowers have been alighting
And all over again fly

Blow a sailing boat towards right
Away from reflections of sunshine

Going quick to you who I miss, it's true

CHORUS

Whoa...go follow the flow

CHORUS
And even all my soul
It's running away
On a free seahorse
Taming the waves...

With plankton...my soul
It's running away from body's place
On a free seahorse
Back to you babe...
Track Name: Light, Fire
Animals
There's no fire
In the cave

There's no fire
No ash in the sand

Animals
Including men
Fire isn't fed

They burn places up
Graveyards but

There's no fire, no fire
In the hearth

Hardly never shines

CHORUS
I saw brighter and brighter
Through the smoke brighter and brighter

Animals
There was fire
'Til rain has come

Deeply

They want a soul
But no love
Because it hurts sometimes

CHORUS
I saw brighter and brighter
Through the smoke brighter and brighter
The light of fire

A fox comes our way
Through the flames
Where I stay for you
I pray forever ignite
The light of fire
Track Name: Hidden in Depths (feat. Grifo)
There's something in, I want nobody, no other to read and say if
She ever opens it or ever maybe she's affected, it will stay
Hidden in depths of my heart, my heart of hearts, for someone else
Blue ink disappears wet by my tears, I don't wanna reveal what I felt
What I'll write, these words of mine, why should I?
I'd like to narrate but it's too late, that's my fate
A shaking sight tries on to stop my hand that carries on

CHORUS
Singing why should I dear?
You cannot dry out my tear
Why should I dear?

Oh please promise me you will open my diary and leaf through my pages, our stories
Will you do your bit, biscuit?
Hidden in depths of my heart, my heart of hearts, this message I got in
Voice disappears choked by my tears, I don't wanna reveal what I felt
Yeah I write, these words of mine, why do I?
You could make your emotion placate remorse of my fate
A shaking sight tries on to stop my pen that carries on

CHORUS
Singing why should I dear?
You cannot dry out my tear
Why should I dear?
Singing why should I dear?
You cannot dry out my tear?
Why should I reveal?

The only way to be beside you
Is smiling, I’m hiding
Only way to be beside you
Is carrying on writing

Will I be by your side?
I’m smiling but hiding
Will I be by your side?
I’m carrying on writing
Track Name: Why Chromosome Y?
I was so little
You made me bigger now
In a fly to a beetle
I love you, mother

What it was I ignored
Education, the value of a penny
Staying with you I was bored but
I love you, I love you granny

CHORUS
Why chromosome Y?

Life, earth, night are all females
Wonderful, beautiful, I can't deny
You left a mark on me, always
And I wonder why...

CHORUS
Why chromosome Y?

All the things above, females too
Wonderful, I can't deny
I will forever recall your names
And I never know why chromosome Y?
