I see myself, I see myself in the mirror. The question is what is real? Do I have to doubt my own eyes, doubt my own mind, doubt my own senses, doubt my perception of life? It's hard, it's hard, hard to be. Yes, yes, it's hard, it’s hard, hard to be. [Refrain] My freaky mind is going to do what it wants. It's just a kind of slowly going blind. I understand I can't escape my fate. It's useless to fight, to fight for independence, to fight for truth, to fight for insight, to fight for myself. Yes, yes it's hard, it's hard, hard to see. Yes, yes it's hard, it's hard, hard to see. [Refrain] I wish, I wish there'd be an answer, to all the questions in my head. No one can stop the manipulation, stop the wrong education, stop the illusion, stop the confusion. It's hard, it's hard, hard to be. Yes, yes, it's hard, it’s hard, hard to be. [Refrain]

A blink hardly to see. A tree from the first root to the last fruit. [Refrain] Impossible for eyes to perceive, all we see are the marks you leave. The pace with which you go, spans painfully fast and unbearably slow. No matter how much you race, you will catch us without grace. You are the waiting, the impatience, the fading of a moment, the holding on to some recollection. [Refrain] You are the instrument of caducity, which lets us yearn for infinity. [Refrain]

A thought at the right time, at the right place. Distraught waiting to be found in my maze. I know the world got changed by some ideas. Don't bow to your doubts and to your fears, and lose them. [Refrain] Please give me now, now a flash of inspiration, 'cause every brainwave would be a confirmation. Who gets to savor all your precious gifts? Regrets, until all the pressure lifts. So why do I have to wait so long for you? I try to get a hold but you keep slipping through. [Refrain] A lot of thoughts never fulfill their aim. Do not expect it to be an easy game. So please give me … [Refrain]
5.
Yes you can choose the way, don't do it easily. There’s a price to pay, I pay it happily. [Refrain] Come and feel what I know, I believe it's time to show what I know. Yes feel what I know. The world is on the brink of ruin, but we are the ones who decay. I can't bear losing, losing you in anyway. [Refrain] No pills against suffering, there’s just empty talk. I waste my time waiting, I go the final walk. [Refrain] So please, please, please come with me. So please, please, please love with me. So please, please, please die with me.

When we close our eyes to sleep, we open them again in a world created by our brain, as a confluence of present and past experience, as a conglomeration of our subconscious self, of our fears and hopes. But the question is, who knows what dreams are. Everybody dreams, but sometimes we can't remember the pictures projected in and by our mind. In order to assimilate our experience, maybe to entertain or show us the way. But these are all assumptions. And the question is, who knows what dreams are.

At the dawn of every day the last of their kind have to drag themselves to the mighty bells. With nearly no strength left they start to play the melody, which is their breath of life. [Refrain] They hate all cigarettes cause they die from smoke and they can kill one hundred rats with a single stroke. They throw salt in the oceans and paint the sky blue. They trigger our emotions and they crumble at first view. They remove all plaques from every blood vessel, but mending the earth's cracks is where they excel. And they hope to hear the bells one more time. The melody of the bells refills their strength, which they lost from fulfilling their task. If they want to, their life is without an end, if they decide to do a little less. [Refrain] Their number is always the same, so that for every death, one of them grows from the soil. It may seem that laziness yields a reward, but if the world gets out of joint, then they've sealed their fate. [Refrain]

Waking up at 6 o'clock in the morning, a radiant smile is on your face. You're blessed with success and with much money, it's gonna be the best day of your life. [Refrain] Yes that can be, maybe, under another sun. Yes that can be, maybe, under another … Watching the news on your telly, it’s nothing there to be afraid of. Kim is nominated for the Nobel Prize for Peace again and Sudan is reaching for the moon. [Refrain] Waking up next to you in the morning, holding your hand in mine. I hear your voice, I smell your skin, I can’t believe how much I care. The car leaves a minute later, and your grave flowers are in your hair, and your grave flowers are in your hair. [Refrain]

Two hands grabbing you, to pull you out. Tears in all eyes, 'cause you cry out loud. Sucking on some breasts, don't let your parents rest. Taking your first steps, falling into gaps. Telling your first lies, get your punishment. Receiving some hard hits from a tyrant. Closing friendships and making enemies. A curious mind is filled with prejudice. [Refrain] We're walking through the fire, we're getting shaped like clay. Hairs are growing and hormones spin around. Revolution, your self will be found. Love will torment you, love feels also true. Your relationships are defining you. [Refrain] Time to settle down and to find the one. Mourning your parents when they are gone. Kids give you happiness as much as worries. Sometimes life feels like boring stories. Mind and body are failing you. Feeling dependent in your view. You've walked all hills and valleys. It's time to release at ease. [Refrain]

Memories pull the past to the present and make it real. Much is lost, lost forever, but some moments count for eternity. Hopes and dreams are for the future and remembering is for the past. But all your actions, all your actions are happening now. If you lose them, yes if you loose them, do you lose your identity? Nothing would be left of who you are. Memories pull the past to the present to preserve cherished moments, to learn from mistakes and to remember all. So thanks for all the wonders in every nucleus in our mind.
