Track Name: Stranger
Don't let the sun catch you crying,
Don't let the light catch you lying,
Don't let the night catch you dying,
Don't let it go.

Don't let the heat catch you breathing,
Dont let the wind catch you bleeding,
Don't let the dark catch you fleeing,
Don't let it go.

Dance, dance, dance.
Dancing in a crowd of people.
Dance, dance, dance.
High up, like an eagle.
Cons and hoes,
I've never felt so alone.

Dance, dance, dance.
Dancing in a crowd of people.
Dance, dance, dance.
High up, like an eagle.
Cons and hoes,
I've never felt so alone.

Don't let the earth get you changing,
Don't let the rain catch you fading,
Don't let the tide catch you waving,
Don't let it go.

The noise caught you talking,
The speed caught you walking,
Gravity caught you falling.
Don't let it go.

Dance, dance, dance.
Dancing in a crowd of people.
Dance, dance, dance.
High up, like an eagle.
Cons and hoes,
I've never felt so alone.

Dance, dance, dance.
Dancing in a crowd of people.
Dance, dance, dance.
High up, like an eagle.
Cons and hoes,
I've never felt so alone.

Lost and cold,
In the streets of gold.
Once my home,
But now it's gone.

So I'm gonna,

(Lost and cold),
Dance, dance, dance.
Dancing in a crowd of people.
(Streets of gold),
Dance, dance, dance.
High up, like an eagle.
Cons and hoes,
I've never felt so alone.

(Lost and cold),
Dance, dance, dance.
Dancing in a crowd of people.
(Streets of gold),
Dance, dance, dance.
High up, like an eagle.
Cons and hoes,
I've never felt so alone.
Track Name: Kull Lejla
F'sematek
il-kwiekeb,
qtar ta' xita
li qatt ma niżel iqattar
ftit minn ħsibijietek
fi xtuti mxennqa
għall-fertilità
ta’ kliemek.

F'semati
il-kwiekeb,
tamiet
li kull lejla
xtaqt niġbor
waħda waħda
u nqiegħed
bejn ħajti u ħajtek
f'bejt jitrejqu
b’ loqom kliem xieref.


sematek
mhuwiex
semati.
Track Name: Fumes
I asked myself where to go now,
I felt the need to fly.
Am I existing or living?
Or are we tempered by time?

Confessions are not betrayal,
Only feelings and thoughts matter.
Nothing in this world is so bad,
There's no where you are your own threat.

Come closer,
Come closer,
Come closer,
Come closer.

Come closer,
Come closer,
Come closer,
Come closer.

Come closer.
Track Name: Farsa
IEQAF!

Għodda b'waħda, Marju qal.

Hemm arha x'tiżżeblah f'nofs ta' triq!
Ħwejjiġha bilkemm jgħattuha!
Ommha mara tal-knisja,
Imma hi?
Ħasdet isem il-familja.

Niskantaw,
Niġġudikaw,
Nindannaw,
Nirribellaw.

Hemm sabitni fil-ħdax ta' billejl,
B'dawk l-għajnejn miksura,
Ġilda tleqq, b'wiċċ ruxxan.
Dlonk niżlitli għar-rkupptejha,

Demmi jbaqbaq, qalbi tħabbat,
Sitta tnax, sitta tnax,
Sitta tnax, sitta tnax,
Sitta tnax, sitta tnax,
Sitta tnax, sitta tnax.

Il-valuri tas-soċjetà,
Il-valuri tas-soċjetà,
Il-valuri tas-soċjetà.

Il-valuri tas-soċjetà,
Il-valuri tas-soċjetà,
Il-valuri tas-soċjetà.
Track Name: 103
Take a deep breath,
And plunge into the hollow end.
Losing track of time,
Losing life without a fight.

Let them just destroy
What they have,
What they can't have.
What's the point in turning back?

Forget everything,
Am I holding back?
Forget everything,
It takes more than that.

Seeking the truth,
But I just can not find it.
They claim to know they do -
But they're just implying shit.

Am I part of something new,
Just a fool?
Or a foreigner in disguise,
Arriving here, improvised.

Forget everything,
Am I holding back?
Forget everything,
It takes more than that.
