Track Name: Citrin A: Speaking To The Living
The leaf will fall and turn into a skeleton
Turn into a skeleton
And turn into a skeleton…
Track Name: Citrin B: Raven
The Raven will lose his strength
And fall into the ground
Fall into the ground…

If something dies tonight
Something else gets a new life
Something else gets a new life…
Track Name: Marylin
Marylin is going to the stream
Holding a wooden bucket
Filled with fresh water
The darkness will soon follow
Beware of the coyote
Beware of the coyote

Run, run Marylin, Marylin
Run, run through the forest
Run, run to the old wooden house
Run, run run, little child

The ghost town is in a walking distance
There you can no longer hear
The chant of the wind
The call of the White tailed Eagle
Something changed a long time ago
Something changed a long time ago

Run, run Marylin, Marylin
Run, run through the forest
Run, run to the old wooden house
Run, run, run…

My dear Marylin talks with wild foxes
My dear Marylin plays in the mud
My good and innocent girl
Do not ask too many questions
Blessed with a pure soul

I'm old now and my hair turned white
I'll be waiting Marylin, to hear your violin
One day you'll learn that simplicity is gold
And there's no gold and no peace in a place like this
Track Name: Long Lost Sister
I met her at that night, a big heart called Rene
We knew things would never be the same
She told her life time story through her eyes of emerald green
She saw her sister and I saw my twin

She remains silent while the willow tree is getting older
And leaves are changing colors to the color of her hair
Her hands are moving constantly like the waves in the sea,
The open sea was calling, whispering, come to me

Oh my long lost sister, where are you now?
My long lost sister, left us in the winter
Oh my long lost sister, dear Rene, dear Rene, dear Rene

God took her one thing, and blessed her with another
She can sew every torn heart and break it in two
Those emerald eyes will hypnotize you, take you to a spellbound world
From which no one, no one has returned

Oh my long lost sister, where are you now?
My long lost sister, left us in the winter
Oh my long lost sister, dear Rene, dear Rene, dear Rene

You follow the wind, leaving only tracks, Rene you are a song that never ends…
Track Name: Whistle
Waited for so long, waited for so long to see your beautiful eyes
When you'll come, it will be so nice
So nice to feel your heart beating likes my own
You got your ways to make me better
Better than I ever been before, before…

I call to you, I call to you my darling but I can't hear a sound
These words will lead you back to me
The autumn winds are blowing, leaves began to fall
My man is all I'm waiting for, my man is all I'm waiting for

Why won't you come, come to me?
Why won't you come, come to me?
Why won't you come, come to me?
I remember how you took your bag,
Still remember how you lace your shoes
You said, wait here at the garden, I'll be back for you

Why won't you come, come to me?
Track Name: Gizela
She was once a living legend
And now her name is on a stone she is black and white, Gizela
Just like the cactus on her grave so strong she was
A mother and a father figure she gave everything when she had nothing, nothing to give But in those times there was no cure for dear Marchell Her first born child died and left her alone again

The life taker, drug addicts, card players
And empty body pleasure givers walking from the port
Sailors and mariners knocking on her diner doors
She was the anchor the were lying on
Looking in her a window all of life endeavors

I would like to know you better make you smile but you no longer here
The name that was once yours I'm holding in your memory, the chain you gave to me, oh…

I would like to know you better make you smile but you no longer here
The name that was once yours I'm holding in your memory, the chain you gave to me, oh…
Track Name: Unborn Child
Oh, in my dream, in my deepest dream
A blurry face of an angle, of my unborn child
A blue piece of sky in his eyes
Like my father's, like my Grandpa's
Like my father's, like my Grandpa's
Like my father's, like my Grandpa's eyes…


Oh, And in my dreams I'm a mother
And I teach him how to sing and I teach him how to dance
A wide smile on his face,
Like my mother's, like my grandma's
Like my mother's, like my grandma's
Like my mother's, like my grandma's smile…


The mountains will call his name,
The wolves will hug and the birds will sing
And you my love and you're strong, strong hands
Will give protection, teach him wisdom

He'll have your teeth, he'll have your nose
Your toes your bones your voice
He'll have my hair, he'll have my skin
He'll learn to play my songs
Track Name: Teeth And Bones
Oh Lord, I'm walking on sharp stones, walking on sharp stones.
Oh, bloody tears, ropes and Thorns
Won't suddenly be gone, suddenly be gone

Helpless souls, no names, the screams, the pain
Lying wrapped on the flames
Deep waters holding secrets, deep waters holding lies
Deep waters holding secrets, deep waters holding lies

Keep your eyes open wide, to the dark side
Keep your eyes open wide, to the dark side
Keep your eyes open wide, to the dark side
Keep your eyes open wide, to the dark side, to the dark side


What kind of dirt are we walking on?
Teeth and bones, teeth and bones
What kind of dirt are we walking on?
Teeth and bones, teeth and bones
Track Name: Mothers
I buried your laughter, I buried your laughter and the warms of your hands
The smell of your cocking in the afternoons, oh those afternoons
They won't come back no more, come back no more, come back no more, no more
Come back no more, come back no more

You used to tell me when I was young, life is simple, life is so simple
In each and every rock and tree and flower on the ground, there is Mother Nature, Mother Nature
And she's here for you and I and it's a circle of life, we laugh and we cry
We make love, we create new life and then we die

I want to have a child, I want to hold a child, I want to see your glimmer in his eyes
Oh ma, I tried so many times, so many, many times
The sun comes throw your favorite lace curtain, strange shapes on the walls
Moving in circles, round and round and round and round…

I swear I see your face, I swear I see your face
Barefoot dancing, mothers chanting
Sister's spirits holding hands, sister's spirits clapping, dancing
Sister's spirits holding hands, I swear I see your face
Track Name: Strong Like You, Free Like You
In the morning light, you're lying next to me on the ground
Flowers in my hair, you always make me laugh
On a cloudy day
Is it joy or sadness when the rain falls?
I know I cry too much, even now writing this song to you

And I know you right,
Sometimes I'm so crazy and lazy and coward
Oh, I wish I was more like you
You see, I do not want to feel that pain again
I do not want to cry
To write about real feelings
Oh I wish I was, free with you

Time is endless like the sea
Your love is a boat calling me
To find the courage, strength, the faith
We lost through the years
Will my footsteps remain on the golden sand?
Will my songs be hard when I'm dead?

And I know you right,
Sometimes I'm so crazy and lazy and coward
Oh, I wish I was more like you
You see, I do not want to feel that pain again
I do not want to cry,
To write about real feelings
Oh, I wish I was free like you and
Strong like you… free like you… Strong like you…
Free like you… Strong like you…
Oh, oh, oh, oh…
