Track Name: The Sea
The Sea (Pajer/Konstankiewicz)

Moře v dlaních temnou sílu skrývá,
když se blíží noc.
Tak svou náruč něžně otevírá
- má čarovnou moc.

Přivine tě k sobě, ukonejší,
něžnou závratí.
Tiše šeptá hlasem nejsvůdnějším
- strach se vytratí.

Roztančí se vlny, břehy zmizí,
už to začíná.
Nadně zakleté jsou tváře cizí
- s tvýma očima.

Mraky stahují se, vítr kvílí,
bouře burácí.
Útesy se tříští, ptáci šílí,
- moře krvácí.

Who will tell me when I´m wrong,
Who will say I´m right,
When I´m staying all alone?

She´s the sea I´m drowning in,
She´s the ocean where I´m lost.
Track Name: Don´t Speak To Me
Don´t Speak To Me (Pajer)

He tells me the funniest story he knows,
And I promise not to interrupt.
And maybe I´ll still smile to him,
Though I´d like to spit in his face.

Don´t speak to me.

She tells me the funniest story she knows,
And I promise not to interrupt.
And maybe I´ll still smile to her,
Though I´d like to spit in her face.

Don´t speak to me.

You tell me the funniest story you know,
And I promise not to interrupt.
And maybe I´ll still smile to you,
Though I´d like to spit in your face.

Don´t speak to me.
Track Name: Don´t Worry
Don´t Worry (Pajer)

Just when you think you´re right,
It´s sure you are wrong.
Just when you think it´s time,
It´s sure that you´re too late.

Don´t think, don´t feel, don´t worry.

Just when you think you´re right,
It´s sure you are wrong.
Just when you think it´s time,
It´s sure that you´re too late.
Just when you think you´re fine,
It´s sure that you feel sick.
Just when you think you think,
It´s sure your brain´s turned off.

Don´t think, don´t feel, don´t worry.
Track Name: Stones
Stones (Pajer)

Once I woke up to find stones in my bed,
Stones in my fridge,
Stones in my oven.
People on the road had stones in their eyes,
Stones in their mouths,
Stones in their hands.

There´s something wrong
With my perception.
Everywhere I look,
There´s just stones around me.

Once I woke up to find stones in my bed,
Stones in my fridge,
Stones in my oven.
People on the road had stones in their eyes,
Stones in their mouths,
Stones in their hands.

There´s lots of work,
I take a hammer
And stone after stone,
I smash them all to sand and dust.

There´s something wrong
With my perception.
Everywhere I look,
There´s just stones around me.
Track Name: Lost On The Way
Lost On The Way (Pajer)

He took a train ´cause he wanted to go to croatia,
But he fell asleep on his seat so he woke up in Asia.
He was a cool guy so it didn´t much matter to him,
He took the next bus to a place where he could go to swim.

She was an Asian girl, she was pretty and nice.
All day she worked in a field harvesting rice.
Her job was quite hard and it made her feel healthy and strong,
But the heat was too much for her mind, so there was something wrong.

They met on the bus and for him it was love at first sight,
For her it was not but she wanted the guy for one night.
They went to the beach and he said "You´re the love of my life",
She smiled at him, said "Yes, I know" and then took out her knife.

Far away from home, far away.
Lost on the way there´s nowhere
You can be wrong.
Far away from home, far away.
Lost on the way there´s nowhere
You can go wrong.
Track Name: Sunbeams
Sunbeams (Pajer)

Sunbeams are sharper than knives,
But melting thoughts
Are better than frozen feelings.
You want to receive
What you think that you deserve.

Who do you think you are,
That you still expect something to happen?

Sunbeams are sharper than knives,
But melting thoughts
Are better than frozen feelings.
You want to receive
What you think that you deserve.

But who do you think you are,
That you still expect something to happen?

Never forget,
That what you want
Is the most unimportant thing in the world

So who do you think you are,
That you still expect something to happen?
Track Name: Listen
Listen (Pajer/Konstankiewicz/Ostransky)

I talk and talk and try to explain,
But you don´t seem to understand
What I try to say

This is my voice!

Listen!

You try to cover your ears with your hands,
Not to hear what I say,
I promise you: no chance!

This is my voice!

Listen!

Listen!
Track Name: The Answer
The Answer (Pajer)

Who told you that there is any sense in what we all do?
Who wrote the words which should make it all begin?
Who invented the wheel, why does it turn as our thoughts turn in our heads,
As I turn in my bed when I sleep?

Why is it so easy to destroy nd so hard to produce?
Where is the start of a circle and where is the end?
Who will finish the war we all fight with ourselves,
Who will survive and who´ll stay behind?

I whish that the answer was you.
I whish that the answer was you.

Why do snakes crawl on the floor and why our thoughts can fly?
Why does it rain and who makes it stop?
Why do you have smaller feet than me and why your eyes are brown?
Who made the difference between women and men?
How does it come that aeroplanes fly and humans not?
Why do our lives have an end and what happens then?
Why do dogs bark and why we can speak and what should we say?
Is it really true that we can think what we want?

I whish that the answer was you.
I whish that the answer was you.
I know that the answer is you.
I know that the answer is you.
