This is the only song that we imported from my past.

Originally, it was meant to be a birthday gift for a friend. It was never delivered because I had made a mistake in the postal address.

At the time of composing this song, I was listening to a lot of Massive Attack. Their 100th Window album was new back then and I was quite into Small Time Shot Away. I guess one can tell I was not yet influenced by Dream Theater. :-)

It's also my first song with English lyrics and second song ever. It was partially inspired by depressive states of a dear friend, who shared her story with me, and which had moved me.

Lyrics

Breathe deep your hated friend is here to crawl and creep Cry and weep this little jerk will never sort your heap Lambs and sheep fall sacrificed for he ignores your need You cannot bear when he is in there Track down his lair or run if you dare Stop being shy and give your goodbye Throw your clothes and undo the chains Free the ghost, unleash the hurricanes This is not a land of fruit and flower Let's set off, let's not miss the H-hour Let's never stop Let's sell the house Let's sail the sea Let's shut the mouth undress and spree Leave the life behind! Save me I haunt myself, I'm my own enemy Now and here I disclaim being hero without peer I breathe deep I join the Gods, I join you, I join me Give me your hand Let's roam our land together my friend towards our end Once you will die but also shall I Throw your clothes and undo the chains Free the ghost, unleash the hurricanes This is not a land of fruit and flower Let's set off, let's not miss the H-hour Let's never stop Let's sell the house Let's sail the sea Let's shut the mouth undress and spree Leave the life behind! Leave the life behind! Leave the life behind! Get on the path that's oh, so vast It's waiting for us to cross it at last It's beautiful, my! to walk and to fly... Throw your clothes and undo the chains Free the ghost, unleash the hurricanes This is not a land of fruit and flower Let's set off, let's not miss the H-hour Let's never stop Let's sell the house Let's sail the sea Let's shut the mouth undress and spree Leave the life behind! Leave the life behind! Leave the life behind! Leave the life behind! Leave the life behind! Leave the life behind!
