Upon The Highest Mountain - Lake of Tears



I wish, I dream, I dream of mountains high
Where I can sit and look down the hills, and say "This is I"
I wish, I dream, I dream of mountains high
Where I can stand and raise my hands, and touch the sky

A streak of light, opened in the darkness
"Little child, welcome to the outer realms
This is your kingdom, this is your destiny"
That little child, that little child was me

"My son, you must wander far
There is a place, seek it skywards
Up high, where mountains break the clouds
There is your place, upon the highest mountain"

A wish to wander far, to find the mountains high
A dream to be king, up high where heaven lies
"Hurry little child, run, king to be, run
Climb the highest peak, and reach for the sun..."

I wish, I dream, I dream of mountains high
Where I can sit and look down the hills, and say "This is I"
I wish, I dream, I dream of mountains high
Where I can stand and raise my hands, and touch the sky

A streak of light, brought into the darkness
A young man, wandered into the outer realms
Oh, his destiny, that he was a king to be
That young man, that young man was me

"My son, you must wander far
There is a place, seek it skywards
Up high, where mountains break the clouds
There is your place, upon the highest mountain"

Upon the highest mountain...

Linoleum - Pain of Salvation



She keeps the world at bay
With walls built to stand come-what-may
And with that coldness on display, they held until today
She would hold her own
Running all alone
Ridding her road of every grain
To stay in control

But now
She cries
Alive

Suddenly she is down on all four
And the walls will support her no more
Cries her eyes out like never before
Onto this linoleum
The bottled up and stored

She's won every war
And when she's out that door
She will push ahead of you, frowning at the poor
She would move so fast not to end up last
Aiming for the finish line
To smile at those she'd passed

But now
She cries
Alive

Suddenly she is down on all four
And the walls will support her no more
Cries her eyes out like never before
Onto this linoleum
The bottled up. And stored --

And sometimes
Oh, just sometimes
That's really all it takes:
A hand on her shoulder
Then she breaks

Sometimes that's really all it takes:
(Yes then)
A word of kindness and she breaks
(She breaks)
And then the sum of damage done
(Well she breaks)
Spills out on stale linoleum
(She breaks)

Sometimes that's really all it takes:
(She breaks)
A gentle touch and then she breaks
(She breaks)
To see the sum of damage done
(She breaks)
Stain this linoleum
(Oh, she breaks)

Sometimes that's really all it takes:
(Oh, she breaks)
A word or touch and then we break
(Oh, she breaks)
And all this world's linoleum
(She breaks)
Can't hold the sum of damage done --

(She's becoming her last casualty)
Itsy bitsy Spider
Climbed the water spout
(If she breaks then at last she'll be free)
Down Came the Rain
And washed the spider out
(But she keeps it together once more)
Now she stays on the ground
So she'll never fall
(And runs another day to fight another war)
See she would rather drown
Than lose control

Senza Vento - Timoria



E son qui, non c'é niente
strade, bar:
comunque mi difendo
e non mi arrendo

La mia età é il fuoco freddo
nato qui,
vivo e non credo in niente

Mi dici che trent' anni fa
fermaste un pò il mondo
mi dicono che vent' anni fa
era tutto diverso

Ma sono pronto / E libertà
Per volare senza vento

Come me anche tu
resti qui
e vedi le giornate già vissute

Dentro me, il risveglio
ciao a voi
perché domani parto
sweet reaction

Qualcosa di mio lo lascerò
in questo mio tempo
Saltando nel vuoto aspetterò
il nostro momento

Sono pronto / E libertà
Per volare senza vento

Sono pronto / E libertà
Per volare senza vento

On The Page - Chroma Key



Tell me something stupid
Auction off my diary
Life is getting esoteric
Let me in your movie
Each time i walk out the door
Someone mixes metaphors
Life is so much cleaner on the page

It's like the morning when i'm dreaming
And everything is so pristine
It's just a seven hour movie
And i'm in every scene

Let me in my t.v.
Get this tape to tori
Got to have a subplot
When i sell them my life story
Maybe i should write it first
And do the living later
'cause life is so much cleaner on the page

It's like the time i lost my body
And then i saw it on t.v.
Somehow it shed a whole dimension
But it still looked like me
(hey! that looks like me!)

Each time i write lines for it
Someone improvises it
Life is so much cleaner on the page
Life is so much cleaner on the page

Fade Into You - Mazzy Star



I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take a breath that's true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth
You live your life
You go in shadows
You'll come apart and you'll go black
Some kind of night into your darkness
Colors your eyes with what's not there.

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew

A stranger's light comes on slowly
A stranger's heart without a home
You put your hands into your head
And then it's smiles cover your heart

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you

I think it's strange you never knew
