Track Name: March I
instrumental
Track Name: In the Twilight (feat. Tony Levin)
The grass is green what a beautiful thing
When the grass is green I feel like a king
The river is clear dear friend of mine
If the river is clear we can live without fear

I can’t hear the sound of my footsteps on the ground
Because there is no more rain, no more grass
I’m getting older, I don’t wanna be here

In the light through your fingers you see no dreams fulfilled
Because you’re sick the world got dark in the darkness it’s dying

I don’t wanna be here
Let’s save the world
Let’s save the world

The sky is clear dear friend of mine
When the sky is clear we can live without fear
Track Name: March II
instrumental
Track Name: Black Sun
instrumental
Track Name: March III
instrumental
Track Name: Night With a Thousand Furry Animals (feat. Benny Greb)
There is no reason to see your faces crying in the empty sky
There is no reason to hear the sound of my breath in the night
No one here by my side except the ocean in the dark
No one there by your side except crimes and a starless sky

There is no reason to get high to listen to the sound
There is no reason to see red blood left there on the ground
No one seems to care about so many deaths or war crimes
No one cares how we feel, if in a minute we are still alive

I’m gonna spend
I’m gonna spend
I’m gonna spend
I’m gonna spend a night with a thousand furry animals
Track Name: March IV
instrumental
Track Name: Lost
Flowers lost in the desert
like whispers in the dirt
Snow falls hard you don’t know
the war is not over yet
Pure life lost on mother earth, on mother earth
Pure life lost on mother earth, on mother earth

Is there a dragon where you are?
Hurricanes in the sky
Step by step you don’t know
There is no race after death
Innocent life lost on mother earth, on mother earth
Pure life lost on mother earth, on mother earth

Then I’m gonna close my eyes
To see you flying in the air
Don’t put your faith in the future because
The war is not over yet
One more life lost on mother earth, on mother earth
Pure life lost on mother earth, on mother earth

A loud noise hurts my ears
Same old picture in my mind
Hundreds of years sadly passed
But the war is not over yet
Poor lives lost on mother earth, on mother earth
Pure life lost on mother earth, on mother earth
Track Name: March V
instrumental
Track Name: In the Twilight PII
It is getting dark, silence in the air
Spirit sun, I feel cold and numb
Silent notes in the air, coming from the valley
In a stone, coming from a stone, another friend has gone

I’m alone, in your eyes alone
Laying on a stone, where have you gone?
The silence, a beautiful silence in my ears
Perfume of tiny flowers grown on tears

Their conscience is upon the stars
It’s nice to know it’s upon the stars
Far away, always, upon the stars
Dead man, you are beyond the stars
Track Name: March VI
instrumental
Track Name: Cold and Fake PI (feat. Benny Greb)
Crazy voices try to find their day
Blind animals cannot find their way
We gotta wake up we better wake up
Broken heart your spirit is still alive
Someone there keeps it safe and clean
We feel we’re not dead - sun is in our heads

Fake fake there is something scary and fake in you
Fake fake your beating heart is cold and fake

Look at the line where the oceans touch the sky
It’s in our eyes, there is no need to say goodbye
We gotta wake up we better wake up
Scary monsters try to justify themselves
Making wars in the name of any god
No empathy in their heart - just profit in their thoughts

Fake fake there is something scary and fake in you
Fake fake your beating heart is cold and fake
Track Name: Cold and Fake PII
I hope we will see the light
Together I know we will see the light
Above us a beautiful peaceful sky
I know we will see the light
Track Name: March VII
instrumental
Track Name: Pacific Revolution
In this crazy world
We don't need your wars
We just want to live
Respect, love and peace

We won’t be fooled anymore
No more deaths to cry for
We just wanna breathe
The freedom that we need

Because I had a magic dream swimming in your stream
Walking along your way, I see a land with no more pain
And from a dark endless town, We will take you far away
On white wings of the milky way
On white wings of the milky way

Can you ask yourself why
Thousands of children are dying
Under a blood red sun
War crimes and genocide

Do you think God is blind?
It’s just because of us
Listen to the voice in your heart
We have to follow our heart

Because I had a magic dream swimming in your stream
Walking along your way, I see a land with no more pain
And from a dark endless town, We will take you far away
On white wings of the milky way
Because I had a magic dream swimming in your stream
Walking along your way, I see a land with no more pain
And from a dark endless town, We will take you far away
On white wings of the milky way
On white wings of the milky way
Track Name: March VIII
Instrumental
Track Name: In the Light (feat. Tony Levin)
Down in the light clear light of a bright shining sun
I saw the strength in your eyes and felt the power in your heart
The way you talk the way you walk brings your light down on me
We all have been made here to love to get lost in someone’s eyes

I adore your light when you spread your wings and fly
over the hills so far away where the big eye just can’t see
It’s the power of freedom the power of being awake to see to realize
We’re living in a mad world where depravity is the ordinary way

But we live, we breathe, we love
Let’s be friends forever
But we live, we hope, we talk
Let’s be free forever
But we grow, we use our mind
Let’s go against brain control

You and I together laying on mother earth to get the vibes
So go and have respect swim in the river clear water gives you life
Just a few of us love dead rivers death from the underground
In the name of God wars it’s all driven by money, bloody profit

So go and buy gas be scared of viruses mind the war next door
Be aware! Everyone can get sick, should we live in a world of fear!
What a desperate view to see mad brains rule mother earth
Trying to control our minds with a bunch of crazy bullshit

But we live, we act, we are alive
Let’s just respect ourselves
But we live, we hope, we talk
Let’s make the world a better place
But we grow, we use our mind
Against fear and all of them
Track Name: March IX
Instrumental
Track Name: Walls Between Us
There is no more “you”
There is no more “me”
Identification failed
Somebody is looking for a face in virtual worlds

There is no real feel
There is no real talk
Communication failed
Rivers of words in the name of who knows who

Come and speak to me
Demolish those walls between us
Come and hold me
We can blow away the walls of fear

Still because of faith
It happened all along
“Divide and rule” goes on
We act like crazy behind the “screen of reality”

Children daily die
Madness from the sky
It’s time to react
No more turning away from pain and disgust

Come and speak to me
Demolish those walls between us
Come and hold me
We can blow away the walls of fear
Track Name: Peace (feat. Pat Mastelotto)
Hey you help me in your dark coral cave
I feel your empty heart from my musical echo
Take me away from your dark coral cave
And my notes will conquer the leaves of the forest

Rat rat how do you feel
Rat rat what do you see
Rat rat what do you play
Rat Rat he won’t hear!

C’mon this is the side you can’t see
ten thousand voices sing here with me
Please open the door of the dark coral cave
Don’t leave my notes in the deep of your coral cave

Is there anybody here with me
May I speak with you my dear
My voice is crashing into blue waves
Like tiny lights through the darkness

Hey you, it could be good to get out of here
I walk in nice red shoes today dear
There is a strange sun in the clear blue sky
I’m not happy because I’m not here, in my head.
The first day was bright light
Peace from my left to the clear sky
I’ve got a beautiful dream to realize
But the second sun is there

I want to hear Lucy in a sound of may
Just to stay here where water is clear
Dreaming in a dream to talk to a Lord
I want to hear Lucy in a sound of May
So let peace be our world today
So let peace be our world today

So cool to see everybody walking on the sun
It’s a secret dream for my blue eyes
Free to let my imagination go on
I’ll be your breath and you will be in my heart

I want to hear Lucy in a sound of may
Just to stay here where water is clear
Dreaming in a dream to talk to a Lord
I want to hear Lucy in a sound of May
So let peace be our world today
So let peace be our world today
