The Waves of Lisbon Were all these waves made from flying Fishes speeding splashing crying On the shiny mirrored surface of This cold and deep Atlantic Ocean? Swallowed by waves and whirlpools Just some kids I thought were cool Disappeared in the Ocean So much drama, anxiety Diva? Crazy? Oops, thats me. Can’t control my emotions. Why do I move in self doubt? Do I really shout too loud? Entropy, the waves of Lisbon... Entropy, the waves of Lisbon... Entropy, the waves of Lisbon... Take your reasons, sink with them. Could you take your lies along To the bottom of the ocean? Like a flying fish for sure Got ready to fly above Liquid energy in motion Why do I move in self doubt? Do I really shout too loud? Entropy, the waves of Lisbon... Entropy, the waves of Lisbon... Entropy, the waves of Lisbon... Why do I move in self doubt? Do I really shout too loud? Entropy, the waves of Lisbon... Entropy, the waves of Lisbon... Entropy, the waves of Lisbon... Gonna sleep on the wall Gonna sleep on the wall Gonna sleep on the wall Gonna sleep on the wall Chaos shaking the dance floor Anger crashing on the shore Liquid energy in motion... (liquid energy) Liquid energy in motion... (liquid energy) Liquid energy in motion... (liquid energy) Liquid energy in motion... (liquid energy) Liquid energy in motion... (liquid energy)

Sea Turtle 03:51
Sea Turtle Please come out baby sea turtle Come swim in us little turtle We won’t crash on you We won’t crash on you Run for our love baby turtle Future won’t bite little turtle We won’t crash on you We won’t crash on you I’ll try my best not to be afraid, but these fucking birds are on my way Every time I try to love it’s like the sky just falls above my head in tears I know i’m hiding so much inside, just trying to keep myself alive This time I hope the waves will dance a lullaby and put to sleep this fear Please come out baby sea turtle Come swim in us little turtle We won’t crash on you We won’t crash on you Run for our love baby turtle Future won’t bite little turtle We won’t crash on you We won’t crash on you I’ll try my best not to be afraid, but these fucking birds are on my way Every time I try to love it’s like the sky just falls above my head in tears I know I’m hiding so much inside, just trying to keep myself alive This time I hope the waves will dance a lullaby and put to sleep this fear Fear eats the soul Fear eats the soul Fear eats the soul Fear eats the soul Fear eats the soul Soul Soul Soul Soul Soul Please come out baby sea turtle Come swim in us little turtle We won’t crash on you We won’t crash on you Run for our love baby turtle Future won’t bite little turtle We won’t crash on you We won’t crash on you I’ll try my best not to be afraid, but these fucking birds are on my way Every time I try to love it’s like the sky just falls above my head in tears

Laika Surfing Cosmic Waves Oh I do miss her My sweet dog Laika Unfolding the leash So I would walk her Barking every night I went out for drinks Taking her revenge Biting all my things And all the lovers She met at the park Howling in return Crying in the dark On a stormy night Laika ran from home Oh how I miss her Oh what have I done Down the milky way My sweet dog Laika Surfing cosmic waves In between the stars And all her lovers Were gone by her side I just hope they all Enjoy their space-time

Red Sea 03:50
Red Sea I wish today I could cross the Red Sea. I don't want to push him away from me. Why shooting plagues at our love across the sky? When we could just lie in bed, and laugh all night. Open up, Oh Red Sea Let me pass, I wanna be free From this strange tendency To avenge all that hurts in me. Open up, Oh Red Sea Let me pass, I wanna be free From this strange tendency To avenge all that hurts in me. I can’t blame all Egyptians. For all my disappointments. Let me through your walls of sadness. Open up, oh Red Sea...

Whirlpools 02:46
Whirlpools When I was young my friend said to me “Never turn your back on the ocean” I gave my ass to reality Guess who got fucked by its commotion. Swam over the cuckoo's nest. What’s going on in my head? Dreaming on my own seabed It still echoes what he said. Swam over the cuckoo's nest. What’s going on in my head? Dreaming on my own seabed It still echoes what he said. When I was young my friend said to me “Never Turn Your Back On The Ocean” Lost myself again in fantasy. Spinning till I drowned, wet and frozen. Swam over the cuckoo's nest. What’s going on in my head? Dreaming on my own seabed It still echoes what he said. Swam over the cuckoo's nest. What’s going on in my head? Dreaming on my own seabed It still echoes what he said. When I was young When I was young When I was young When I was young When I was young When I was young When I was young When I was young

Bermuda Triangle There were lights, they took all the planes away There were lights, they took all the boats away Broken ropes that used to harbor all sails, Yellow buoys that flew with the hurricanes Cemetery no one can find any bones It’s Bermuda - Geometry of all bonds Above the water, soaking life in mystery Flying saucers stealing all my friends from me I wish those lights could make this pain go away I wish those lights could make them come back again Cemetery no one can find any bones It’s Bermuda - Geometry of all bonds There were lights that took all the planes away There were lights that took all the boats away There were lights There were lights There were lights There were lights

Tsunami 03:26
Mandaste-me calar na pista E não foi a primeira vez Quem cala consente um machista Provocaste a pior maré Conversa tão paternalista Perdi o controle desta vez Cuspi toda a mágoa de artista Em castelhano e português Lá tenho eu a tendência de levar Tudo à frente de mim como um Tsunami Ahí tengo la tendencia de llevar todo delante de mí Como un Tsunami Eu não sei Eu não sei Controlar esta raiva que há em mim O que eu dei O que eu dei Ouve, o silêncio não se pede assim Lá tenho eu a tendência de levar tudo à frente de mim Como um Tsunami Ahí tengo la tendencia de llevar todo delante de mí Como un Tsunami Rasguei o teu perfil online pra nunca mais ter de olhar pra ti Como um Tsunami Mesmo que a dor e as memórias não se possam apagar assim Com um Tsunami E será? Onda má? Será que podes ver alguém feliz? Má onda Má onda Foste má onda E pra más ondas viro um Tsunami
