Track Name: Touch of Frost
Wasted and wounded i travel this road
Squeezing my mind where the hell i should go
I guess i'm lost
I must have wandered off the map
I've searched for the woods but i just found one tree
I sat down there to see what would come on to me
Well nothing came
Just some leaves on my lap
Oh give me one damn good reason
Oh give me one damn good reason
Oh give me one damn good reason to go
I went to a friend to dig up my thoughts
She said: "i don't know what you want but this leads to nowhere
I can see you're lost
You must have wandered off the map
You should go back to where you came from
And see if you can pick up your trail there
It'll take some costs
But we'll fill up that gap"
Oh give me one damn good reason
Oh give me one damn good reason
Oh give me one damn good reason to go
Oh give me one damn good reason
Oh give me one damn good reason
Oh give me one damn good reason to go
Still waisted but stronger i travel this road
Thanks to some friends that i've lost there
Just a touch of frost
And they all drop like flies
Just a touch of frost
And they all drop like flies
Just a touch of frost

Track Name: Into the Wall
You can run for miles in all directions
You can jump so high before you fall
You can dig in deep to seek protection
But in the end there will always be a wall
On other sides the grass is always greener
That's the sickening truth of it all
Freedom and space will blind your sight with eager
And in the end there will always be that wall
in the end there will always be that wall
'Till here
and not one step further
'Till here
You will never cross that line
'Till here
You won't live to see the wonder
'Till here
It's all the same just inside out
Face it! we're all trapped in our own boundaries
Seems we'll never manage to get out
Those who try mostly drown in bad luck stories
And just a few emerge above the crowds
just a few emerge above the crowds
You can run for miles in all directions
You can jump so high before you fall
You can dig in deep to seek protection
But in the end you will crash into the wall
in the end you will crash into the wall
in the end you will crash into the wall

Track Name: Sweet Lisanne
Like a freighttrain you came rollin' in my heart
I don't know what to do with this kind 'a' violence
Something snapped and now everything is blur
Another age, another day, another part ?
Never will you now what you gave me
Nothing comes close to your appearence
Evermore i will carry thy in my heart

Listening to the wind blow thru the ropes
In deep dark nights and slowly thru the days
Sunlight burned your body in my soul
As the fire of time was burning up my hope
Nothing came close to what i sensed
Never did i feel what i felt
Evermore i will carry thy in my heart

Love is just a piece of perfect time
I know that and i try not to forget
Somehow i will heal this broken heart
As time will pass things will tune and rhyme
No i won't forget the sparkling in your eyes
No i won't forget the music in your voice
Evermore i will carry thy in my heart
Evermore i will carry thy in my heart

Track Name: Sail back to You
Never been more happy
Never been more pleased
Than sailin' the rough seas
With you so close
Now i'm sorry
For bringin' it up again
I could be a happy man
But i can't have you here
I just can't have you here
Still i'm drownin' in your eyes
Sinkin' deep in your voice
It's not much of a choice
But i'll sail back to you
Now baby i'm sorry
For callin' you this way
I was sifting thru the mail
As i found yours today
Again i'm sorry
For bringin' it all up again
I am such a happy man
But i can't have you here
I just can't have you here
Oh i can't have you here
Still i'm drownin' in your eyes
Sinkin' deep in your voice
It's not much of a choice
But i'll sail back to you
Sail back to you
In my mind i'll
Sail back to you
Sail back to you
Sail back to you

Track Name: It's a Waste
It's a waste of lies
it's a waste of truth
It's a waste of time
it's a waste of youth
It's a waste
It's a waste of warmth
a waste of compassion
It's a waste of lust
Fatal waste of attraction
It's a waste
It's a waste
All i ever wanted was to be with you
No no no nothing more than this plain and simple truth
It's a waste of words
it's a waste of thoughts
It's a waste of tears
Fuckin' waste of love
It's a waste
It's a waste
It's a waste
We desperately ran out of luck
It's a waste
I don't know how to pick things up
Maybe i'm too dumb
maybe i'm too blind
Maybe i'm too deaf
Angrily unkind
Hell it's a waste
It's a waste
It's a waste
We desperately ran out of luck
It's a waste
I don't know how to pick things up
Maybe i'm too dumb
maybe i'm too blind
Maybe i'm too deaf
Angrily unkind
Hell it's a waste
It's a waste

Track Name: Emotional Changes
I'm still lookin' for signs and traces
but i can't tell
If it's just another time and space here
or a livin' hell
I thought about leavin'
the other day
There's no-one tryin' to live out here
At least none with any sence
Sometimes i feel quite lonely
deep inside myself
Travelin' thru emotional changes
Knowin' very well
what to give and what to sell
and what to keep behind
There's no-one tryin' to live out here
At least none with any sence
Leave me alone
I don't want to be out here
I'm tired of explaining
what i will or will not hear
I've got a free mind
so free my body too
There's no-one tryin' to live out here
At least none with any sence

Martin van de Vrugt 19-12-93
Track Name: Another Fall
Like faces in the dark
staring down on me
Selffulfilling thoughts
raising fear
Like voices from the past
ringin' thru my ear
Memories once lost
bringin' tears
And i know it'll never be the same again
And i feel i might have lost another friend
Now another fall (See the sun fall down the sky)
has chased away the heat
And the leaves they fall (Bright reflections in your eyes)
on my feet
I try to raise my head
stroll on empty streets
After all that's said
denied my needs
And i know it'll never be the same again
And i feel i might have lost another friend
And i know it'll never be the same again
And i feel i might have lost another friend
And i know it'll never be the same again
And i feel i might have lost another friend
And i know it'll never be the same again
And i feel i might have lost another friend
And i know
And i feel

Track Name: Walkin' thru the Rain
Dreamin' 'bout the way things used to be
Like these shows you can see on tv
Search my mind for things i failed to see
Holding on to what means something to me
And nothing else seems to matter
to me
nothing else seems to matter
Walkin' 'thru the rain on lonely sundays
Ooh
See me walk thru the heart of this old town
Feelin' like there is no-one around
Exept my steps i register no sound
Only my feet seems to know where i'm bound
And nothing else seems to matter
to me
nothing else seems to matter
Walkin' 'thru the rain on lonely sundays
Ooh
And nothing else seems to matter
Nothing can break the silence in my head
I feel better now
after all you've said
Walkin' 'thru the rain on lonely sundays
Ooh
Dreamin' 'bout the way things used to be
Like these shows you don't wanna see on your tv
Search my mind for what means something to me
Holding on
holding on
holding on

Track Name: On my Way
See the night flow down this empty street
Moon shines on the path that's guiding me
Change my sweater 'cause it's changin' weather
And it's getting better day by day
It's getting better day by day
And i'll be on my way
I'll be on my way
Look over my shoulder now i'm getting older
And so much time just fades away
See the light dim in western skies
Bright purple colors in my eyes
And it's getting better day by day
It's getting better day by day
And i'll be on my way
I'll be on my way
my way
I'll be on my way
I'll be on my way
I'll be on my way

Track Name: The rain won't Stop
'Cause the rain won't stop this year
i'll keep singin' songs with a tear
and i find it hard to describe
You should stay happy my child
Keep on laughin' and cheer
'cause there's so much grief
not so very far from here
While we got food and we got drinks
We got a house and pretty things
We got a car and many roads
to bring us truckloads to unload
We got friends who give us love
We got good memories to think of
While they have nothing but fear and pain
'Cause the rain won't stop this year
i'll keep singin' songs with a tear
I find it very hard to describe

Martin van de Vrugt 27-8-93
Track Name: See how far we can Go
How much can a man take
before he will crash?
I feel like everyone tries to break
all of me what has left
No-one returns a smile
No-one sais hello
come with me for a while
see how far we can go
Last night before i went away
i said i'd call it a day
I didn't mean just for the moment
I guess i ment for always
And no-one returned a smile
No-one said hello
come with me for a while
see how far we can go
And now my mind is empty
just like my pocket and my heart
I feel like dyin' on the spot
like i never should have started
And no-one returns a smile
No-one sais hello
come with me for a while
see how far we can go

Martin van de Vrugt 2-6-94
Track Name: Another Moonlight
Someday there'll be another moonlight
That matches the one that hides inside my mind
Shinin' blue thru the curtains
I remember watching all night just to see the shadows move
Something to lose
Someday there'll be a better reason
for the pain that hides deep inside my brain
For the kid
covering his ears
tryin' not to hear the words fall down like rain
Someday pain
Someday the pain will find it's way out
I don't know when or how or how i will react
Maybe on a blue night behind curtains
Maybe when i'm lyin' lost and lonely on my bed
Someday ahead
Oh
