Track Name: Tiny Ant Mechanisms
I was sitting in the park just the other day
Trying to read a book in the midst of all the people there, hey hey
They expected me to turn the page and turn the page
Cause that's what you do when you read among people who know books

At my shoes this tiny ant mechanism
Was working perfectly so I did not dare move my foot, hey hey
And in line them girls where there, back next to back
Shall I shoot them in the head or kiss them on their necks?

Ch:
Is this the love of the gods
Or the weapons of love
You have to go back to work
Building this wall
Stone after stone after stone

Tomorrow I have to go back to work
Building these things, stone after stone, hey hey
Cause you have to work to earn good money
And you need good money to make a good living
that's what my parents say

But as an outsider of a tiny ant mechanism
How can you work when you dare not move a foot, hey hey
You just turn the page and then you just turn the page
That is, they say, how to read a book
Track Name: One With The Dust
Alone in my room
I'm watching the dust
There's peace all around
Outside this crust

I've simplified my life
I've made it, it seems
Sadness, pain and despair only come in my dreams

I love you now
With a love I can only find in myself
And my love, you know
Is the silence that sadness brings

From the mountain I come
To the mountain I'll go
I'm one with the grass
And the things you don't know

I'm going to drink
Drink to your health
Then I will ride back all by myself

I love you now
With a love I can only give to myself
And my love, you know
Is the sadness that silence brings

Alone in my room
I'm one with the dust
There's peace all around
Outside this crust

My heart is now light
I've made it, it seems
Anger, pain and despair only come in my dreams
Track Name: Good Times
Well, tonight the good times have ended
There's a wind blowing from the north
And it sings of a new found loneliness

Well, tonight I dream of her parents
And how they accepted me as a son
And gave me to eat and to drink like a son

We both riding bikes in the afternoon
I remember the happiness in her face
When I told her that she was the chosen one
But that was so many years ago

So tomorrow I'll leave for a ride
It will be just like every day's work
With not much luggage, seeming quite unspectacular

I don't know how to tell you this
I'm leaving to where some sun warms my heart
And I'll be fed and loved like a son

And I'll remember us in the afternoon
And the happiness in our faces
When I look back from these ancient places
Upon what's only been hours ago
Track Name: One With The Dust
Alone in my room
I'm watching the dust
There's peace all around
Outside this crust

I've simplified my life
I've made it, it seems
Sadness, pain and despair only come in my dreams

I love you now
With a love I can only find in myself
And my love, you know
Is the silence that sadness brings

From the mountain I come
To the mountain I'll go
I'm one with the grass
And the things you don't know

I'm going to drink
Drink to your health
Then I will ride back all by myself

I love you now
With a love I can only give to myself
And my love, you know
Is the sadness that silence brings

Alone in my room
I'm one with the dust
There's peace all around
Outside this crust

My heart is now light
I've made it, it seems
Anger, pain and despair only come in my dreams
Track Name: One With The Dust

Anger, pain and despair only come in my dreams
Track Name: A Beautiful Evening Among Warm-Hearted People
I have to thank you, thank you all for your compassion
You who are siblings to each other
And even though I've never been your brother
You fed me and you nursed me and you gave me wine to drink

None of you was hostile or despising
Some of you were even smiling at me
All of you seemed to be trustworthy
As I watched you playing from the edges of your community

How strange I must appear to your shining eyes
That are drinking life and red wine
And even though my eyes, they, too, shine
They shine in a completely different colour

So I must leave, leave as you're laughing
Thank you for the excellent food
I know how much it will hurt if it's you who's leaving
So I have to be the first to make that move
