Track Name: Australia (Video Edit)
AUSTRALIA

My day is over
The work in the morning
One more day like the others
Full with nothing at all

To fill the void
Rushes water from the ceiling
A parget falls down and
Janitor’s completely drunk

Water climbs
The sea is reaching the table
I’ve got to hurry
To save Your photographs

Just want to see You
How long You can talk with pictures
You said we’ll be going
To Australia

It’s so cold
Outside my window
Great snowflakes falling
Like fluffy ostrich eggs

It’s so dark
Outside my window
On that side of the globe
Already kangaroos wake up

Can’t fall asleep
Mind’s full of thoughts, an overflow
I want so much
With You somewhere far away

All there is
Is just a killing of time now
Until we’re going
To Australia

Dog stares at me like at fool
With koala-sad eyes
I try to tell him
You’re just a little late

Koala tells me
I’m waiting vainly
I send him away, who would have thought
Koalas are so miserable liars

It’s so cold outside my window
I wait for us going to Australia
It’s so dark outside my window
I know we’ll be going to Australia
Track Name: My Holiness (Video Edit)
MY HOLINESS

Here is my hand for You
Hold it tight if You want
To get on the other side

You need a boat no more
I can walk on water, girl
With You in my arms

My Holiness, my light
Is going to erase Your fears
Just let my hands lay on Your skin

You need the sun no more
I am the true sun for You
I am for You

But I need an open scar
To save the sense
Of who I am

As the scars skin over
Everything will be forgotten
My smile will be untrue again
Track Name: Austrālija (Video Edit)
AUSTRĀLIJA
Latvian version of the song “Australia”.

Mana diena galā
No rīta uz darbu
Un vēl diena kā visas
Pilna ar it neko

Tukšumu aizpildīt
No griestiem steidz ūdens
Krīt apmetums lejā
Un sētnieks ir piedzēries

Ūdens kāpj
Jūra sniedzas līdz galdam
Man jāsteidz glābt
Tavas fotogrāfijas

Tevi vēlos redzēt
Cik var runāt ar bildēm
Tu teici – mēs brauksim
Uz Austrāliju

Ir tik auksts
Aiz mana loga
Krīt pārslas kā pūkainas
Strausa olas

Ir tik tumšs
Aiz mana loga
Viņpus zemeslodei
Jau ķenguri mostas

Nenāk miegs
Nāk galvā visādas domas
Tik ļoti gribas
Ar Tevi tālu projām

Viss, kas notiek
Ir, lai laiks ir nosists
Līdz mēs brauksim
Uz Austrāliju

Ir tik auksts aiz mana loga
Es gaidu, kad mēs brauksim uz Austrāliju
Ir tik tumšs aiz mana loga
Es zinu, mēs brauksim uz Austrāliju
Track Name: Mans Svētums (Video Edit)
MANS SVĒTUMS
Latvian version of the song “My Holiness”

Še būs Tev mana roka
Satver cieši, cieši to
Ja gribi pāri tikt

Vairs nevajag laivu Tev
Virs ūdens varu staigāt es
Un Tevi nest

Mans svētums, mana gaisma
Tavas bailes izdzēsīs
Kā izdziest krīts

Vairs nevajag sauli Tev
Es esmu īstā saule Tev
Es esmu Tev

Bet man vajag kādu rētu
Atvērtu, lai atcerētos
Kāds esmu es

Kā rētas aizvilksies
Man tas viss sāks aizmirsties
Mans smaids kļūs atkal nepatiess
Track Name: Korrosion (Law of the Dawn Remix)
KORROSION
German version of the song “Corrosion”.

Da kommen deine einzig treuen Freunde
Symptome eine Anfalls
Du ballst die Fäuste, möchtest sie verscheuchen
Doch steh’n sie um dein Bett und lächeln

Dein Nachtschrank füllt sich mit Tabletten
Hellblau, grün, orange und rosarot
wer hätte sich das Leben je so bunt gedacht
Und einen Augenblick so bedeutsam

Und durch die Augenlider
durch die Finger vorm Gesicht
frißt die Korrosion sich wieder
ätzt die Verzweiflung sich

Nur so kannst du dich befrein -
schlag’ alles kurz und klein
Du mußt zum Torpedo werden
positiv geladen sein

Wer weiß, ob jemals sie die Briefe liest
Die nachts du schreibst, bevor der Schlaf dich packt
Aus Angst, daß du den Morgen nicht erleben wirst
Daß dich die Seuche überfällt im Schutz der Nacht

Du schreibst, was du noch nicht verwirklicht hast
Du hast sie nicht umarmt zum letzten Mal
Du strebst mit aller Kraft dem Himmel zu
Dein Himmel spiegelt sich in eine Lache

Und durch die Augenlider
durch die Finger vorm Gesicht
frißt die Korrosion sich wieder
ätzt die Verzweiflung sich

Nur so kannst du dich befrein -
schlag’ alles kurz und klein
Du mußt zum Torpedo werden
positiv geladen sein
Track Name: Corrosion (Klonavenus Remix)
CORROSION

Here come Your always-responsive friends
Those are the symptoms of just another fit
Clench your fists, try to push them out of Your bed
But the brigade just sits on the edge quietly smiling

Your bedside table fills with remedy
White, yellow, light blue, orange, red and green
Who would have imagined a life so colourful
Who would have thought one more moment so meaningful

And through the eye-lids
Through finger apertures
The corrosion creeps into you
Despair devours You

The only way to overcome
Is to use a battering-ram
Be a torpedo that’s
Loaded with delight

Who knows will she someday get to read your letters
That you write each night before to fall asleep
Scared that tomorrow can come not for You
And the disease will use the darkness to fall on You

You write in your letters what haven’t you done yet
For the very last time haven’t tightly embraced her yet
While you search in the sky for a guiding light
It’s just a puddle reflecting Your sky

And through the eye-lids
Through finger apertures
The corrosion creeps into you
Despair devours You

The only way to overcome
Is to use a battering-ram
Be a torpedo that’s
Loaded with delight
Track Name: Australia (Hien Remix)

Track Name: Phasic (Venta Version)
PHASIC

It seems we’re safe and happy, no things can harm us now
We don’t ask anything else, it’s already more than fair
But then on a simpliest day so easy – our worlds collapse
You feed the birds in our garden, alone and confused to despair

It’s been a year since I’m watching You from above
Our ways are parted now. Your life, Your laughter still goes on
New impressions are there and new people for Your secrets to share
Only bluebirds sing from the trees – it’s a phase You’re going through

In our spirit
We’re never alone
We’ll live longer than sun
We’ll last longer than stone

In our spirit
We’re always near
And none of us
Will ever disappear
