Track Name: Gemini
All alone on a desert highway
You had it all but threw it all away
At night you look up at the cloudless sky
Searching for the galactic gemini

All is lost and you don't know where to go
The desert awaits to give you the final blow
Searching for directions, the east and the west
The gemini awaits you, lay your head and rest

You lost your shoes and the sand burns your skin
The gemini whispers at you to give in
To the soothing sounds of the sand below
You lay down in the sand and here we go
Here we go, here we go, here we go, here we go
Here we go, here we go, here we go, here we go
Track Name: The Escapist
I never been one of the incrowd
Always was the lost one wandering about
The center of attention never attracted me
That's why I hang around in the periphery

Don't catch me, because you won't
Don't love me, because you can't
Don't hold your breath for me
Just let me be free

I'm the escapist, escapist, esca-esca-escapist
I'm the escapist, escapist, running away from everything

You think you know me, you're holding on to a ghost
Being trapped in situations is the thing I fear the most
Love the one that you cannot get
I might be domesticated but not yet

I'm the escapist, escapist, esca-esca-escapist
I'm the escapist, escapist, running away from everything

I'm the escapist, escapist, esca-esca-escapist
I'm the escapist, escapist, running away from everything
Track Name: Jigsaw piece
I tried to understand the shape of things
I couldn't cut loose from the state that I am in
Feeling like a sandstorm met an earthquake in my mind
Or a stampede of rhinoceroses, charging from behind

Try to understand this mess that I am in
Don't know where to end it but I know where to begin
Going on a rampage and reclaim myself
Looking for my spirit and I'm doing it well

I'm a human jigsaw all the pieces are gone
Been searching myself for god knows how long
I can find myself if I search really hard
Now I'm knocking on your door it's a very good start

Can someone help me please
For somewhere there's a jigsaw that's missing a piece

I found my head in a cupboard
I found my roots under the rocks
I found my legs in a treetop
I found my brains in a box

I got my nose in the air it's a jigsaw piece
I got my arms in a pyama it's a jigsaw piece
I got my head in a bandana it's a jigsaw piece
I got my eyes in a mandala it's a jigsaw piece

It's all about the shape of things
It's all about the shape of things
It's all about the shape of things
I'm a human jigsaw in the shape of things

Can someone help me please
For somewhere there's a jigsaw that's missing a piece
Track Name: Slow days
Wake up in the light, there's no need to fight
I'm going to get it right, from the morning 'till the night
Everything in time, hurrying a crime
Please don't make a sound, sleep the clock around

Slow days, give me those slow days
Time has come to rest my weary head in that lucky old sun
My way, I want it my way
Isn't that what everyone wants

Alone is just alone, can't make it on my own
This slow day will be blue, unless I am with you
Together we'll go far, let's go down to the bar
We're gonna have some fun, until tomorrow comes

Slow days, give me those slow days
Time has come to rest my weary head in that lucky old sun
My way, I want it my way
Isn't that what everyone wants

We forget to take a look at the setting sun
We forget to take a look at the setting sun
But today we take it slow, and the day is done

Slow days, give me those slow days
Time has come to rest my weary head in that lucky old sun
My way, I want it my way
Isn't that what everyone wants
Isn't that what everyone wants
Track Name: The plan (What a beautiful day)
It's early morning, the city wakes
Sky is sunlit as a new day breaks
Mothers, fathers, sons and daughters
Another joyful day just like the others

Quiet houses wherever you go
Sun falls on the leaves of old trees
From the sky you came from far
You will leave the gift of peace

A beautiful day, three years ago
Started it all, and this is the day of the rising sun
You're flying in from the sky, you carry out the plan
And then you fly away

Early morning, the people move
Then they look towards the sky
An engine roars above the buildings
On this day all laughter dies

Dropping, falling, play the game
Shrieking sound of hope in vain
Soon the city disappears
In a haze of unsung tears

A beautiful day, three years ago
Started it all, and this is the day of the rising sun
You're flying in from the sky, you carry out the plan
And then you fly away

What a beautiful day
What a beautiful day
