Track Name: Frost
FROST

In the cellar of my old house
Looking at the big big freezer
Just thinking about my own life
I go inside I lock the door
I listen to my slow heart
I feel my poor flesh hardening

I wanna freeze
To death
No more sprees
I wanna freeze
To death
Out of breath

I can’t see I can’t hear I’m in
The dark and the cold cold freezer
Out problems and lights and voices
I wanna die a dirt-cheap death
I listen to my poor mind
I feel my old mouth closing

I wanna freeze
To death
No more sprees
I wanna freeze
To death
Out of breath

Sooner or later I’ll be found
And packed in a white white pall
Then when they will lead my corpse out
I know you’ll be here my sweet heart
I’ll listen to your fake cries
They’ll know at last your treason
Track Name: Where I am
WHERE I AM

Where I am I cannot sit
My place has became rough and sharp
The roof is low the walls are thick
Where I am I cannot stand
I am a stranger to my house
I lie inside I’ve been banished
I am a sinner and their plan
Is to make me pray I’m punished

I just see the ravens
Flying in the air
Hear the ravens
Screaming their old song
Feel the ravens
Waiting for my death

Where I am I cannot kneel
I was locked up two years ago
Poor body well numbed in my cell
I’m kept alive they want it so

I just see the ravens
Flying in the air
Hear the ravens
Screaming their old song
Feel the ravens
Waiting for my death

I’ve got just one thing to do
Look at the hill, the hill in front of me
That’s where they hung the man I knew
That’s where they put the gallow-tree

I just see the ravens
Flying in the air
Hear the ravens
Screaming their old song
Feel the ravens
Waiting for my death

I just see the ravens
Coming next to me
I just hear the ravens
Slippin’ to my cell
I just feel the ravens
Sharing my damned flesh
Track Name: Like a lake
LIKE A LAKE

Come into my world
There are trees
Flowers and bushes
There are trees

Like a lake that spreads around
It seems I’m flying on the ground
I can’t fake it

Discover my world
Hear the bees
Their flight and buzzes
Hear the bees

Like a tree that blooms in full
It seems I’m diving in the sky
I can’t fake it

This is a tree
Inside a lake
This is my place
Inside a tree
I’m a flower

Just explore my world
Tall bright sea
Its birds and fishes
High bright sea

Like an island out of bounds
It seems you’re building my own land
We can spread away
Track Name: Dove
DOVE

Baby baby be my dove
Let me take you on my fingertip
I’m a bird-catcher

I’ll put you in a cage
I’ll swing you in
You’ll fly into a rage
I’ll swing you in
I’ll put you in a cage

Lady lady here’s my glove
Gimme your hand your neck it will fit
I’m a scarf player

Sweetie sweetie you’re my toy
Be a good girl stay and sit
I’m a collector

I’ll put you in a cage
I’ll swing you in
You’ll fly into a rage
I’ll swing you in

I’ll put you in a cage
You’ll fly into a rage

Baby baby she’s my love
She just wanna hear your gentle weeps
We are bird-sellers
I’m a bird catcher
I’m a scarf player
I’m a collector
Player
Catcher
