Track Name: Long Beach Palm Trees
"Pasion, summer, ball games.
Winter time, mind riddles.
Lovely french lovers rather than
Long Beach Palm Trees!"
Track Name: Flamingos
"Fuck this, buy a car
To ride the high along the night
by the seaside

Keep your body on the sidewalk
But put your head on other mind's talk

Leave your backyard
Find your medicine"
Track Name: United Colors of Patapon
"Sweet colours of patapon
Shine more than the ones of benetton,
But the cute girls rather wear their Chevignon,
Up, down they run, down the road."
Track Name: Nandaio!
"Remember the days we were jumping around,
Sleepy mornings basking in the window seat.
Come, come. Come it's time to go.
Leave, please, there's no need for thieves.
Once in a garden, laughing for hours,
You kept catching, and giving me flowers.
What you don't know is what I have dreamed tonight,
Don't run, I'm not the one who used the gun.
Settle down in Africa,
Travel with me to Bogota.
Gamble the seeds of awari,
Join me in a race of parchisi."
Track Name: Lovers' Lollypops
"By the riverside, our talk dured all night,
Dreaming with soft red wine, the city's eyes escaped this light.
Swinging to my guitar, your water moves felt so bright.
Ask the river to wash away your thoughts and carry them away.

Let us never age."
Track Name: Sea of Two
"Somewhere up above the clouds,
The sun glances at the tide,
to plant the day and sail the dawn,
While stars decline towards the light.
Like lovers drifting in a sea of two.
The morning burns the time with four days.
The choral caves that no one knew."
Track Name: Bad Bears
"I saw him, he was staring at me,
Rocks and chickens, they are all in love.
I saw a solomon the bear wanted to catch.
They tried to run, down the river.
I had a long walk with my mate bear,
He told me some stories of an ancient man.
They tried to hide from the bear.
They tried to run from the bear.
I had a long walk with my mate bear,
He told me some stories of an ancient man."
Track Name: Growing
"I haven't started to grow,
and I climbed to know.
So the winds have started to blow.
The wind is coming,
Kids are playing with the trees.
I am starting to grow."
Track Name: Sicilian
"I was in a tiny bar, with Sophie and Caroline,
Whiskey and tequilla we can't lie, embelishing this blue warm night.
Sophie the little cute one, shades of green filled her eyes,
Caroline the childhood love, age seems to have killed her dove.
Neither of them, passion seems to rise.
Apathy leads to a cliff.
A cloudy sight brings me a ship,
Where a whale married a panda,
Cradled by the sicilian sea."
