Track Name: Almost Black
Almost Black
(Words and Music by Manuel Calvo Kamper)

Bright and beauty come out of me
It is my destiny to be like that
Once upon a time I was dark
But the earth didn’t want it to be

His survival depends on me
Also born on the same earth
The young me is what he has to wear
Dark he is and he will ever be

Now their desire
Of having me
Is causing
His suffering
They’re my slaves
As he’s theirs
Although he never wished for it

My power is my beauty
Their power is keeping him weak
I’m so fortunate so fortunate
That my color changed to this
They enjoy me for my presence
But hate him for his
I’m so fortunate so fortunate
That I’m just almost black

Sometimes they call me precious
Sometimes they call him disgusting
I don’t understand I really don’t
At the end I’m not more that just a thing
His skin is soft mine is hard
He can feel pain I cannot
They make him bleed to dead
Despite I’m one of the strongest things on earth

My power is my beauty
Their power is keeping him weak
I’m so fortunate so fortunate
That my color changed to this
They enjoy me for my presence
But hate him for his
I’m so fortunate so fortunate
That I’m just almost black
Because I’m almost black

Now their desire
Of having me
Is causing
His suffering
They’re my slaves
As he’s theirs
Although he never wished for it

My power is my beauty
Their power is keeping him weak
I’m so fortunate so fortunate
That my color changed to this
They enjoy me for my presence
But hate him for his
I’m so fortunate so fortunate
That I’m just almost black… almost black

Because I’m almost black
Because I’m almost black
Because I’m almost black
Track Name: Insane
Insane
(Words by Michal Robert Piatek)
(Music by Manuel Calvo Kamper)

Eyes follow me in the dark
Lines of red and blue
Above my head an exclamation mark
A vision coming true

Faces haunt me day and night
Remainders of the past
I'm burning from my inner light
And I am burning fast

as I lie...
as I fly...
as I cry...
my mind goes by...

The world around me's subject to
Free interpretation
Deciding what's and what's not true
Leaves me in disorientation

And out of chaos, out of the dark
I hear you call my name
Looking for you I find myself
Lonely and insane

talking to the mirror I argue with a stranger
I do not know the face, the eyes there that I see
I wonder how he'll kill me, I'm sure I am in danger
There is no doubt that he’s my worst enemy

Though I'm always lonely I'm never for my own
The voices in my head keep good company
The essence of my life, my existence, my devotion
Is passion for my private formed insanity

as I lie...
as I fly...
as I cry...
my mind goes by...




The world around me's subject to
Free interpretation
Deciding what's and what's not true
Leaves me in disorientation

And out of chaos, out of the dark
I hear you call my name
Looking for you I find myself
Lonely and insane

Come with me
my mind is gone

Do you know how it feels to be me?
Do you know how it feels to be meeeeeee?

Ain' there nothing in this world that can bring it to an end
That will free my soul from this mad intoxication
If there is just one thing, then I beg you my friend
Give me the fucking gun and the bullet of salvation
Track Name: Orange Hope
4 hours have passed
Observing his sculpture
Obviously not a part of that culture
Just an ignorant as any of his class

The announcement has come
A few more minutes and then he’s gone
Nothing to stop him
His fear no longer possesses him

He walks and walks
The huge building across
Drawing and painting
What his hope now brings to him

The cycle has come to dawn
And the sky orange shows now
The color is embracing
Now the hope grows within
Guided by its strength
No pride or ambition to bend
Orange hope that feeds
There’s nothing else that he needs

When the road got diverged
He knew were to go
There was one only price
He would have to do it alone

There at the end
He can see the arc
The future lies ahead
There’s no more coming back

He walks and walks
The huge building across
Drawing and painting
What his hope now brings to him

The cycle has come to dawn
And the sky orange shows now
The color is embracing
Now the hope grows within
Guided by its strength
No pride or ambition to bend
Orange hope that feeds
There’s nothing else that he needs

The cycle has come to dawn
And the sky orange shows now
The color is embracing
Now the hope grows within
Guided by its strength
No pride or ambition to bend
Orange hope that feeds
There’s nothing else that he needs
Track Name: Toxic Belief
Congratulations!
You’ve finally won
It is how you wanted it
Because you hardly fought

You gave your opinion
They took the decision
Your demands were accepted
But they keep the control

Off course they can make it!
Did you forget?
You gave them the power
And put them above

So please don’t complaint
It was your vote
And you perfectly know
That you could do it alone

It
Is
Your
Life

It
Is
Your
Life!!!!

Now you come
And dare to tell me
That you didn’t know
What was going on?

Blinded by your convincement
You gave to them your trust
Apart of that you now claim
That you had the right of choice!

Off course you have it!
Everyone has it!
Stop this damn nonsense!
And face its consequence!
You can still correct it
Just stand up and do it
Stop hiding behind your faith
Because your belief is

Toxic!
No more! Your belief is

Toxic!
It’s enough! This belief is

Toxic!
Oh!

Toxic!

It
Is
Your and our
Life!

For thousands of years
They developed this plot
And you just were
The perfect target to shot

Many powerful stories
That called the attention
Of those who were needing
Something to believe in

It
Is
Your
Life

It
Is
Your
Life!!!!

Now you come
And dare to tell me
That you didn’t know
What was going on?

Blinded by your convincement
You gave to them your trust
Apart of that you now claim
That you had the right of choice!

Off course you have it!
Everyone has it!
Stop this damn nonsense!
And face its consequence!

You can still correct it
Just stand up and do it
Stop hiding behind your faith
Because your belief is

Toxic!
No more! Your belief is

Toxic!
It’s enough! This belief is

Toxic!
No more! No more! No more!

Toxic!
It’s enough! Enough! Enough!

Toxic!
No more! Your belief is

Toxic!
It’s enough! This belief is

Toxic!
No more! No more! No more!

Toxic!
It’s enough! Enough! Enough!

Behind your faith
Lies the desire of truth

Behind your faith
Lies the desire of truth

It
Is
Your
Life
Your Life!!!!

Stubborn and idle
To find out the truth
Easily caught
Like a hair from a broom
Unchaining this madness
For centuries it grew
Spread like a virus
Until stories became history and true

It
Is
Your
Life

It
Is
Your
Life!!!!

Because your belief is

Toxic!
No more! Your belief is

Toxic!
It’s enough! This belief is

Toxic!
No more! No more! No more!

Toxic!
It’s enough! Enough! Enough!

No more! No more! No more!

It’s enough! Enough! Enough!

It
Is
Your
Life!!!!
Track Name: Past Is The Root
Look to the stars
Billions of years of knowledge
Silent but honest
The enormous witnesses of the past

They don’t possess the human talent
of distorting the facts

Look to the stars
Look to the stars
Track Name: A New Beginning
It’s time for me to go
I tried… I promise I tried
But it has no sense anymore
Now has arrived my time.

I release me from my chains
The heat goes through my veins
Standing under the rain
My only companions… Myself and my pain

Leaving you it’s not a mistake!
Please don’t take me wrong
What could be better than make you understand
But I’m sorry… Your belief is already too strong.
The truth has to be said
And if you don’t listen
I will find who will
This is not a war, but it has already begun.

Go! We don’t need you!

Now you reject me

Go! You’re not welcome anymore!

I won’t even try
My purpose has a real meaning
Today’s a new beginning

Your anger
Tells me that I’m right
Your judgement is
Your last dime

Now I stand stronger than you
The wind is even rougher than your hate
Hit me up and crack down
And I’ll break down your faith !!!

Leaving you it’s not a mistake!
I don’t care if you take me wrong
Now I’m the one who finally understands
That you’re the ones who are wrong!!!

Go! We don’t need you!

Go! You’re not welcome anymore!

I released me from your chains
No no more pain
Now it’s clear my meaning
Today’s a new beginning
Track Name: The Arrival
I was getting tired of all this
The more I searched the less I found
My whole surrounding was a fantasy
And I did not see how to get out

Slowly slowly it was consuming me
Once again I felt like joining them
Completely hurt and disappointed
I almost lost my last bit of hope

When I first heard your voice
Soft and full of comprehension
I only thought
How I wish that you were the one

My fears were still stalking me
But I had to give it a try
You were indirectly feeding my soul
And I could not deny me that

Welcome!
I was searching for you

Welcome!
Please allow me to invite you in my life

Welcome!
It’s been so many years

Welcome!
Please don’t be afraid of my tears

Then your presence a delight
First words said face to face
There was nothing to avoid it
Our union was claiming its path

Stories and dreams like an unstoppable waterfall
The maximum search, the search of the absolute
Finally a real goal in life
That could not be without the two of us

Welcome!
I was searching for you

Welcome!
Please allow me to invite you in my life

Welcome!
It’s been so many years

Welcome!
Please don’t be afraid of my tears

The trip has begun
Only together
You and I
Forging the time

Sharped blade
Cutting through space
Magnificent force
That does not want to stop!

Years and years searching for this
Welcome realize, good bye idealize
Once again I am in peace
I’m so thankful that you finally arrived
