Track Name: City of sirens
City of sirens

Lights fade out
and streets nod off
City of sirens ran aground
Police cars seem roundabouts
Beside the wings of a pegasus
Born shopping cart

Wind quivers in an orphan cry
city of silence fears to sigh
and for first time its whisper grinds
it's voice disarmed by a sonata
woven of kites

Soft night breeze seems dressed of glass
as it brushes your nape it almost cracks
and leaves, already breathless, stay stunned
swayed by the wings of a pegasus
Born shopping cart
Track Name: Tales of a napkin's corpse
Tales of a napkin's corpse

Springs that we found on attics' trunk
Survived dressed of grey dust in an urn
Butterflies grew up vultures fluttering me

As I'm falling backwards
I'm falling backwards
Over the autumn ground
sown with old pictures husks
And buried under things that I lost
scrawled in a napkin's corpse

And all our yearnings made of brass
We know they are just stains of dusk
And our lies instead of your fingers hug me

As I'm falling backwards
I'm falling backwards
Over the autumn ground
sown with old pictures husks
And buried under things that I lost
scrawled in a napkin's corpse
Track Name: Masquerade ball
Masquerade ball


Iron in rubble's facades shines so bright
welter soils the face of the bitten by the tides
Streets suppurate grey poison shaded of bile
to forget the starch tightening our smiles

Black curtain falls and, naked,

Velvet night exhumes our hearts
Velvet night exhumes our hearts


Marionettes hanging on the power lines
Overflow the streets in a hollow eyed rush
Inside the cave still sparks the trembling fire
But shadow play crumbles under city lights

And then, just then, with star stained hands

Velvet night exhumes our hearts
Velvet night exhumes our hearts
Track Name: Laurel leaves part 1
Laurel leaves part 1

Excuse if I'm too late
Please, let me introduce myself
I'm just the one who died for you
Please excuse this vain attempt
To unleash sharpened kisses plague
In my death row condemned lips

As i tied laurel leaves
with hooks and nylon to my skin
To feel your arms again
As my rotten old disguise
lied in embrace with siamese beds
The whisper of skin exhaled

A crooning of blades
A crooning of blades

Please let me crawl to your arms
Even if they tear apart
my skin to shreds curled up in the wind
Let me rush towards your traps
and be sweetly hold and spurn
the death in disguise with smooth velvet lips
Track Name: Cysted tears
Cysted tears

Life's a whisper drowned in moths,
Summer howlings scratched in the skin of our voice

Life's not waiting, weaving gray hairs
Life wont wave goodbyes

Dried out eyes miss onion's scent
Cysted tears forgot skies tinted of gray

Life's not waiting, weaving gray hairs
Life wont wave goodbyes
Track Name: Chalk smiles
Chalk smiles

She cries and her tears are deciduous days
And her mourning worns my veins
When her eyes forget their shine
In their sockets still alive
Then her voice is just...

She cries even though with quartered eyes
And her silence scrapes my scars
Every sob corrodes the mime
Drowning ivory in red mud
In the void's embrace
Track Name: Graphite nights
Graphite nights

Killing me, Slowly killing me
every verse was spines in my throat

The beauty was a blade wearing off white clothes
Her dress was staind of the blood of a hundred graphite nights

And killing me, slowly killing me
every verse was spines in my throat
