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

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

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

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

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

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

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
