Track Name: The Traveler and The King
The Traveler and the King

He buttons up his jacket,
backpack on his back.
You may think he married it,
but it's not him who carries it.
It's the day, the air, the atracting from a distance.
His bed is the sand
and in his hand he has a stone-
very long ago,
a gift from someone,
the rivers flow, he's on his boat


to find a home, somewhere,
for a while, somewhere,
to let loose, somewhere,
under trees, somewhere.
Get a a home, somewhere
for a While, somewhere,
to let loose, somewhere,
under trees, somewhere.

Down the mountain to the lake
he doen't know if he's awake
or sleeping and so deep he's weeping
when he comes somewhere
where there's fear in the air.
And when guys can not fight for theire rights
cause there's a king who has a king
who has a king who has a king who has a king.

Someone pulls the strings, somewhere,
makes some rules, somewhere,
in his chair, somewhere,
and he's said, somewhere.

When the king meets the traveler
they are talking about what they did through the years.
And the traveler tells the king:
"I ve seen what you have done,
you are no king no more,

 you better run away, somewhere,
for a while, somewhere,
to let loose, somewhere,
under trees, somewhere!"
He escapes, somewhere,
for a while, somewhere,
to get love, somewhere,
to feel free, somewhere.

After some years the king, he is no king no more,
he's seen the earth, peacefull is his brain.
He thinks, he should come back to see his homeland.
And in the end what he finds in his chair
is the guy from somewhere who states:
"Well, I'm no traveler no more."
Track Name: Fools
Fools

Wondering why
they are fools,
They don’t stop,
time’s passing by.

Wondering why
they make jokes,
no more blues,
we should have cried.

Fools making fools of us,
fools everywhere.
Fools making fools of us
and golden hair.

Wondering why
there’s no just,
just to trust,
instead of the lies.

Wondering why
joining games,
it’s a shame,
they’re killing guys.

Fools making fools of us,
fools everywhere.
Fools making fools of us
and golden hair.

Wondering why
they go on,
'seems, they won
and now we cry.

Wondering why
they have fear
to let everyone be someone.
