Track Name: Love Your Motherland
LOVE YOUR MOTHERLAND

We were young and just ordinary men
Didn’t think about the reason or the cause
We were narrow-minded, looked straight ahead
Never imagined that the world could explode

Now we’re crying...

Open up your eyes if you love your motherland
Not the same as the one we lived in
What have we avoided in our motherland
For not loving the human being

Is it time to pretend that we don’t care
When a riot can give a chance to believe
Revolution is not a trench warfare
Give us your hand, there’s a freedom to retrieve

And we’re crying...

Open up your eyes if you love your motherland
Not the same as the one we lived in
What have we avoided in our motherland
For not loving the human being
Track Name: The Healer
THE HEALER

Carry on, turn off the lights, it’s now or never
Whatever it’s wrong or right, what does it change
Don’t let the moon or the sun make your room brighter
You will be the only one within my range

Sing Hallelujah
And chant as loud as you can
I am the healer
Man

I clean all your lives
I wash away all the tears in your eyes
You’ll never cry while I’m alive
I am the healer

Wait, it’s not too late
You will be able to change your own fate
When I’ll be gone
When I will be changed to dust at crack of dawn

I’m an ethereal body, I am a medium
In the dark you can see me, but you can’t touch
Can you feel above your head a wave of freedom
I’ll heal your mind with my hands, I’ll make it hush

Peaceful forever
It’s something you can’t command
I am the healer
Man

I clean all your lives
I wash away all the tears in your eyes
You’ll never cry while I’m alive
I am the healer

Wait, it’s not too late
You will be able to change your own fate
When I’ll be gone
When I will be changed to dust at crack of dawn
Track Name: As
AS

As I rode in the middle of nowhere
Chased by daemons of eternity
I found out a land without fear nor despair
That would set me free again from misery

As I sent a last goodbye to my friends
Reassured them I wouldn't be alone
I gripped my pilgrim rod in my right hand
As I was just freed from my flesh and bones

And I was so confident in seasons
And I was full of joy and happiness
You opened to me the doors of your mansion
And you offered me a place to have some rest
And you offered me a place to have some rest

As I sat down at the right side of Jesus
As I opened up successfully all the doors
I heard His voice, It was so melodious
And felt emotions nobody could ignore

And I was so confident in seasons
And I was full of joy and happiness
You opened to me the doors of your mansion
And you offered me a place to have some rest
And you offered me a place to have some rest

As I rode in the middle of nowhere
Chased by daemons of eternity
I found out a land without fear nor despair
That would set me free again from misery

That would set me free again from misery
That would set me free again from misery
Track Name: Almost Dead
ALMOST DEAD

I thought you were almost dead, crying and lying on the stairs
I cried, I lost my nerves, ran like a puppet everywhere
The earth stopped turning
But the sun rays were shining and they blessed
You by illuminating your face

I found myself almost dead so many days and many nights
Petrified every time I tried to hold your body tight
Guilty of a murder
It's enough to shiver and to pray
This will never happen again

Now I believe in miracles
And I thank the Lord every day
But I find hard to hide my tears
When your smile still remains

Would you be almost dead if I dared to tell you the truth
This is the price to pay, it's the less worst option I choosed
You said to hide is to lie
But I'd rather be blind than to see
Myself in an abandoned place

So I believe in miracles
And I thank the Lord every day
But I find hard to hide my tears
When your smile still remains
