Track Name: Nightcall
From the cold to the early lights
That's the night call of the city where i live

There's a gap until the morning
When i feel the most complete

Are you attracted as i am by the heart of your city?
Can you tell me how to rest in a town that never sleeps?
And every night, i blow my candle but the glow just gets higher
So, i close my eyes and feel, i feel the night attracting me

If you close your eyes, can you describe what you see?
'Cause it seems to be so different from what i perceive

If you close your eyes, can you describe all the shades?
Fading away, they're getting bigger and reunite

Are you attracted as i am by the heart of your city?

Can you tell me how to rest in a town that never sleeps?
(Can you tell me how you feel when your heart embraces the deep?)

And every night, i blow my candle but the glow just gets higher
(Are you attracted as i am by the heart of your city?)


So, i close my eyes and feel, i feel the night attracting me
(Can you tell me how to rest in a town that never sleep?)
Track Name: Home
I don't want to be afraid anymore
Have we gone to the point of no return?
I still want to see the sun tomorrow
Are we scared of what could have turned wrong?

I was looking for the moment when we lost control
I was looking for the time we crossed the threshold

I don't want to be afraid anymore
Have we gone to the point of no return?
I still want to see the sun tomorrow
Are we scared of what could have turned wrong?

Home, there's nothing like home to me
Because there's something wrong when i leave
Home, i've got to carry the loads
I've got to carry on and come back home

I carry all my weights into the woods
I will unstack my loads and come back home
Can't you see all of my loads?
I'm not afraid anymore

I've got to carry on (x4)

We've got to carry on (x4)
Track Name: 03/04/68
« Something is happening in Memphis; something is happening in our world.

And you know, if I were standing at the beginning of time, with the possibility of taking a kind of general and panoramic view of the whole of human history up to now, and the Almighty said to me, "Martin Luther King, which age would you like to live in? », I would take my mental flight by Egypt and I would watch God's children in their magnificent trek from the dark dungeons of Egypt through, or rather across the Red Sea, through the wilderness on toward the promised land. And in spite of its magnificence, I wouldn't stop there.

I would move on by Greece and take my mind to Mount Olympus. And I would see Plato, Aristotle, Socrates, Euripides and Aristophanes assembled around the Parthenon. And I would watch them around the Parthenon as they discussed the great and eternal issues of reality. But I wouldn't stop there.

I would go on, even to the great heyday of the Roman Empire. And I would see developments around there, through various emperors and leaders. But I wouldn't stop there.

I would even come up to the day of the Renaissance, and get a quick picture of all that the Renaissance did for the cultural and aesthetic life of man. But I wouldn't stop there.

I would even go by the way that the man for whom I am named had his habitat. And I would watch Martin Luther as he tacked his ninety-five theses on the door at the church of Wittenberg. But I wouldn't stop there.

I would come on up even to 1863, and watch a vacillating President by the name of Abraham Lincoln finally come to the conclusion that he had to sign the Emancipation Proclamation. But I wouldn't stop there.

I would even come up to the early thirties, and see a man grappling with the problems of the bankruptcy of his nation. And come with an eloquent cry that we have nothing to fear, but « fear itself ». But I wouldn't stop there.

Strangely enough, I would turn to the Almighty, and say, "If you allow me to live just a few years in the second half of the 20th century, I will be happy. »
Track Name: The dawn
I’ve been to the edge of the world
Like a captain sailing on his boat,
Leading his crew to the promised land
And you won’t believe what i’ve found

In the deepest ocean lie the greatest secrets
In the great unknown...

But if you really want to know what i have found

Meet me when the sun hits the ocean, at the dawn
Find at the beginning of the storm
Meet me when the sun hits the ocean, at the dawn
Find at the beginning of the storm

Meet me when the sun hits the ocean, at the dawn
Find at the beginning of the storm
Help me to find my way back, way back home
And please tell me what went, what went wrong
Track Name: Empty space (part 2)
Are you scared?
Have you left, all of your hidden desires?
You're weak, you're affraid, 
it's the chaos in your head
But please don't, don't fear the empty space
 
It's dark out there
The warmth leaved the air
It's a long road 'till the light
Can shine and brighten the way
But now don't, don't fear the empty space
