Track Name: Europe
I belong at the other side of the water,
where I don't know the word to say hello,
accepted by the masses for my orchard,
a fruit to rich for those who don't bestow,

my love,
is really getting strong,
flourished like a garden in the sun,

my god,
how we really get along,
like 2 orphaned brothers playing with their guns,

I belong the other side of the water,
the king and queen don't have a hold of me,
and they don't have an interest in my jewelry,
given by my peasant family.

my love,
is really getting strong,
flourished like a garden in the sun,

my god,
how we really get along,
like 2 orphaned brothers playing with their guns,

and how about that,
I'm using the wind,
to escape from the crap,
and how about this,
I'm taking my kiss,
to a brave new world.
Track Name: Faith
Keep me safe,
Keep those around me safer,
I'll do anything you ask,
with the pedal to the metal,
I'll attempt the given task.

Please don't make it hard,
rid me of my shyness,
of my convoluted heart,
allow my soul to strengthen,
as soon as clarity kicks in.

Change my biology,
let this single thought decide,
who I am now,
hesitation denied,
I can be your number one ally,
let me try.

Instrumental…

And so I'll begin,
transforming my sin,
ignoring western habits,
I'll give everything I have,
just keep me safe,
alas,
this isn't faith.
Track Name: Pièce de résistance
the last push of the brush,
go make that colour that you love,
perform the line,
could it be the final time,
do you think you've done enough?

where are you now?
Is there a chance you're still around?
our memories of you get fainter by the day,
But your masterpieces never fade away.

with a hole in the bank,
you leave a legacy of turpentine,
and now your studio sounds,
as if it lived deep underground,
with no paintings to reflect this reassign.

Where are you now?
Is there a chance you're still around?
Now we look at your life,
through the smears of your palette knife,
beguiled by every mark that you made.

Veridian green,
Overused by the masses,
But you kept it clean,
Through your dots and your dashes,
And though your colours turned grey,
On your very last day,
A beauty emerged,
You gave us all that you learned,
In your pièce de résistance...

the last push of the brush,
go make that colour that you love,
perform the line,
could it be the final time,
do you think you've done enough?
Track Name: England
Hello England I'm still here,
can't you hear me call your name,
I'm the best you'll ever have,
I don't want to play this game.

And in the future when I'm gone,
You'll be smothered in the shame,
of a love you never had,
I don't want to play this game anymore.

When I was young I had the spirit of an ice mountain tiger,
it seems like those days are gone,
I'm just as cold but not as bold though I'm a natural survivor,
carry on.

With all my skill, I'll take the kill and stick my culture deep inside her,
with a note saying who it's from,
And then I'll leave with no reprieve just like a dirty overnighter,
I'll move on.

Hello England I'm still here,
can't you hear me call your name,
I'm the best you'll ever have,
I just don't want to play this game.

And in the future when I'm gone,
You'll be smothered in the shame,
of a love you never had,
I just don't want to play this game anymore.

You cheat every single day,
moving me from my place,
You don't take my breath away,
my lungs get fuller
by the english day,

Hello England I'm still here,
can't you hear me call your name,
I'm the best you'll ever have,
I just don't want to play this game.

And in the future when I'm gone,
You'll be smothered in the shame,
of a love you never had,
I just don't want to play this game anymore.
