about

Calfskin Belgium

Track Name: Light Burns All
Ann lives in the twilight
From early morning till late at night
She sees sunlight
Only an hour a day with her business lunch

Plastic friends and cardboard dreams
Funny pictures on the wall
But in her nightmares she screams

Light burns it all
Let's get out in the light and die in flames
Let's burn the world of darkness and pain

She believes in love
in the shadows of a discotheque
Waiting for her prince
She needs to make it right

Crumpled sheets, bitter scents
Of sweat and alcohol
But she pulls the curtain and says

Light burns it all
Let's get out in the light and die in flames
Let's burn the world of darkness and pain

She breathes a mix of perfume and sweat
She wears empty shells of labels
And it seems she's almost happy
But she knows
And she always knew

That light burns all
Let's get out in the light and die in flames
Let's burn the world of darkness and pain
Track Name: Broken Part
This is the time
When it comes to an end
Don’t say a word
Even don’t wave a hand

I turn away, and I leave it behind
We are spieces of a different kind

Broken part
Of the chains of your dreams
Of the cherished beliefs
Now I am broken

I fought so hard
While I kept in mind
Those visions of delight
Then I returned to see them banned
You had your different plans

Broken part
Of the chains of our dreams
Of the cherished beliefs
Now I am broken

Lost inside myself
Drowned in nostlagia
Singing silently
Words of pain and fear

Broken part
Of the chains of our dreams
Of the cherished beliefs
Now I am broken
Track Name: Crossover
Rushing their time
You wisper them in the ear
Hoping they will hear
Rushing their lives
You're making circles around
Soothing their fear

Burn that bridge
The bridge you're standing on
You have to burn that bridge
That's the only way to move on

Pushing yourself
You're turning things upside down
Hoping they will react
Kissing the ground
You're lying straight in their face
And there's no end in sight

Burn that bridge
The bridge you're standing on
You have to burn that bridge
That's the only way to move on

Crossing the line
Now that all the stars align
Take a look around
Crossing the line
Drifting to the other side
Leave it all behind

Burn that bridge
The bridge you're standing on
You have to burn that bridge
That's the only way to move on
Track Name: Don't Move
Stand
Don't move
The past is coming your way
You see - it's real
It becomes your present again

You took control
Of the world you didn't create
Now it hunts you down
It wants your life again

I know your way
Your deceit and your play
So come and stay
There's nothing more you can take
Track Name: Land Of Miracles
It's cold out there but I walk outside
Looking for a safe place to hide
Walking on the snow i leave no trace
You can feel my glance but I have no face
Here I reside around the corner of the world

It's different when you step outside, the routine thing you leave behind
All vanity, all desperate cries, all politicians and their lies
The dead ideas, the dead cliches, the evolution and decay

So near to you but there is no one by my side
The land of miracles waits for you outside
The place where all the lines get crossed
The place where I'm so secure and lost
Here I reside around the corner of the world

It's different when you step outside, the routine thing you leave behind
All vanity, all desperate cries, all politicians and their lies
The dead ideas, the dead cliches, the evolution and decay
Track Name: See For Yourself
See for yourself
What have we done to 'us'
See for yourself, my love
What remains of 'us'
Time will wear you down
Are we done
Or can things still turn around

Time
A flash in our eyes
And we're left aching and breaking and taking sides
Time
A flash in my own eyes
As the time goes by the reasons why seem a thousand miles away from now

Further above
Away from their wondering eyes
Further away
To a place with no compromise
Tears will wear you down
Are we done
Or can things still turn around

Time
A flash in our eyes
And we're left aching and breaking and taking sides
Time
A flash in my own eyes
As the time goes by the reasons why seem a thousand miles away from now
