I'll kiss the wall of all goodness
Tonight or early in the morning
I mean all the time
I can see it even its face
It closes its eyes but softly

It can mean something else
Like I'd rather think more or less
When we fear to be mean
It closes the case to agree
But it's only a belief

The absolution is a never-ending story
Everything should be absolute perfect

I compare his art with all I know
Forgetting we're all human at the start
A part of art from the start
But apart in what we're looking for

What wears your face today?
What should I say?
I see your moral heights leaving you
You’re totally out of control, of here and it's there
The I don't know why or what but it's there
It's screaming in you
But it's leaving you here silent, so silent
I can only hear myself
Be and been something sometimes I didn't really want to be


from Without Expectations (2003), released November 26, 2003
