Track Name: I Raised Your Flag
I Raised Your Flag

S. Švantner / M. Šulek

Here I was born and I spread my wings
Felt sweetest taste of life through everything
Open skies had caught my eyes
Dragged me high
So free to live, to fly, so careless to die

Nights became longer than days
Dreams above horizon much harder to trace
Lived through what´s bitter and sour
Far away from home far away from your love

Chorus:

My face has filled with scars
But I never stopped facing the stars
I´m too weak yet to start to fight back
Don´t let me down
Now I raised your flag

Here I stand and I´m born again
Memory brings me back sounds of a falling rain
I was free and I was bound
Fought my inner fight to damn the night

Close your eyes, enter my mind
Welcome to the storm raging around
Feel the rain hitting the ground
Watch the story of my everyday fight
Track Name: Som Volný
Som voľný

Slza v kvapke krvi
Suchá nádej čo sa mrví
Do očí...
Ty poznáš ma,ty vieš
Že slobody sa nedá zriecť
Ty to vieš

Nechcem okolo Tváre rám
Mať sochu ako kráľ
Ja chcem viac
Prekročiť svoj tieň
Z výšky vidieť zem
Bez krídel
Lietať viem

Som voľný,som voľný,
som voľný ako vták

Prečo ľuďom stačí menej
A pravda plachá je jak jeleň
Žije sám
No ty poznáš ma,ty vieš
Že slobody sa nedá zriecť
Veď ty to vieš
Track Name: Don't Let Me Down
Don´t let me down

(S. Kokavcová/ M. Šulek)

Everybody´s watching your struggle
A mass of smiles, some try to cry
It´s your fault you´re drowning in this trouble
Cheer up boy, it´s time to die

Cold water is slowly filling your lungs
One more time and you´re shaken down
But where´s the light I used to like in your eyes
Hard to recall what you were born for

Chorus:

Don´t let me down!

Everybody would let you down
Everybody but you my Lord my King
You grabbed my hand when I was falling down
Seventy-eight time you´ll stop my sinking

How many times you jumped back into the darkness
It´s vamping depth, relaxed death
But every time you´re shocked by the same awareness
There´s no bottom, infinite hollowness

Give me your hand, say it´s OK
Don´t let me fall again
I gave you my word, won´t let your hand go
Just save my life, you promised me so.
Track Name: Within Temptation
Within Temptation

(P.Šulek/M.šulek)

Look, but don't stare
Stare, but don't touch
Touch, but don't taste
Taste, but don't swallow

Sweet, why forbidden
Pleasant, but unforgiven
Wicked smile, adrenalin
Lost in time, caught within

Yeah, just one more time
Donít confess now (don't make confession now)
Don't be sorry yet
There's much more to get!

My snake's pretty, my apple's red
Choose your fate worse than death
Creeping thoughts bring you to your knees
I'll burn your lips with my kiss

Did you hit the sawdust trail?
Tempting memories remain the same
Oh no, don't do it again!
...just take a look, but don't stare
Track Name: Smutná
Smutná

Ó priateľ môj
Opustený
Dnes veľmi som
Sám na zemi
Plnej ľudí

Ó priateľ môj
Skús povedať
Či dá sa v tom
Svete mier nájsť
Keď nás vietor budí

Opäť mráz páli
A ticho nám zoberie sluch
Ak láska sa v nás neustáli
ak láska v nás nenaberie vzduch
Track Name: C-Mol
C-Mol

(S.Kokavcová, P.Šulek/M.Šulek)

Márne volám dnes o pomoc
Žiaĺ a nárek nasýtia noc
Aký krásny je tento svet
Nemal som sa do neho pliesť

Na ceste za pravdou číhá aj smrť
Nie je ľahké jej uniknúť
Kopance snov berú mi dych
Láska má teplo ľadových krýh

Koľký krát
Už nevládzem stáť
Pre množstvo rán
Som stratila tvár

Na zem padám do tvrdých skál
Nádej posledná zomrela
Zrazu náruč teplá ma zovrela
Zo zeme zdvihla tvoja viera

Koľký krát
Už nevládzem stáť
Pre množstvo rán
Som stratila tvár

Už neviem sa báť
vo vetre stáť
Znovu úsmev zahrá
Na moju zjazvenú tvár
Track Name: Inner Fight For Freedom
Inner Fight For Freedom

(S. Švantner, P. Šulek / M. Šulek)

I´m the bright side of you
I´ve always loved the way you do
But now, there´s a price on your head

It´s been a pleasure to share one skin, o´yeah
But now I feel, it´s too hot for me to stay
Since you´ve chosen this way, I´m afraid to look back
For some evil, som evil´s on our track

I saw us in the mirror yesterday
Wanted to talk, but you just turned away
Can´t forget your look in my eyes

Too long I´ve watched this ride to hell
We rise and fall together and I don´t wanna fall again
There´s no time left to please, obey and get on my knees
I´ve grieved enough, grieved enough now rest in peace!
Track Name: Strapec (Rain Of Tears)
Strapec (Rain Of Tears)

(S.Kokavcová, M.Šulek, P.Šulek/M.Šulek)

Rain falling on my head
Inner thoughts traffic jam
Lying beaten black and blue
Would you shed a tear if you knew?

Oh, such a beautiful life
Stroke me from behind
While I'm unconscious theyre stealing you
Would you shed a tear if you knew?

I stood there by your side
I bled , I sank, I cried
I had to come down for you
I had to come down for you!

Saw your face in the rain
My voice has failed again
Left alone there without you
Would you shed a tear if you knew?

I keep calling out your name into darkness
But echoes of surrounding thunders silence my screams
Can you read the blank stare in my tired eyes?
Do your ears hear my voice through the rain of tears?

Light above my face brings me back from unconsciousness
Sense of times gone away, what helped to keep me sane?
The savior's the one saved, but the matter is who?
Now, I see the lovely truth, it was you
Track Name: Smutná
Smutná

Ó priateľ môj
Opustený
Dnes veľmi som
Sám na zemi
Plnej ľudí

Ó priateľ môj
Skús povedať
Či dá sa v tom
Svete mier nájsť
Keď nás vietor budí

Opäť mráz páli
A ticho nám zoberie sluch
Ak láska sa v nás neustáli
ak láska v nás nenaberie vzduch
