Track Name: Fountains Of Blood
Fountains of Blood
by Eric Taylor

The only thing that´ve ever expressed your thoughts better than your words were your eyes
You said there was no distance that could keep you, no distance between yourself and winter skies
Ideological isolation was the only gorge no one could ever cross

You said the rain was good for writing
So there you stood writing in the rain
You said the rain was good for writing
In the streets downtown
Where the tourists stand

You said I worry about you baby though I don´t believe that you lack any will
But when you don´t know where to go to, it´s much more likely you´ll stand still

You said the rain was good for leaving
So there you stood disappearing in the rain
You said the rain was good for leaving
In the streets downtown, no one knows your name

So we´ll make fountains of blood
And take a photograph
It´s just inside of us
We all live in the past

Track Name: All The Beautiful Girls
All The Beautiful Girls
by Eric Taylor

All the beautiful girls
They gather round the streets downtown
Whatever was that you were saying
I took too long to figure out

I feel so alone
It´s just one chance and then it´s gone
It´s just one glimpse then you´re on your own

All the beautiful girls
They gather round the bars downtown
And in this city starless sky
Stars are bar lights reflected in your eyes

I feel so alone
It´s just one glimpse and then it´s gone
In crowded streets, still you walk alone

She crossed the dance floor late that night
Her face half-darkness and half light
She whispered:

I feel so alone
It´s just one kiss and then it´s gone
It´s just one night then you´re on your own

I feel so alone
Such crowded streets where we walk alone
Always searching but never home

I feel so alone
It´s just one night then you´re on your own
It´s just one glimpse and then it´s gone
In crowded streets where we walk alone
In crowded streets where we sold our souls

Track Name: On Your Own
On your Own
by Eric Taylor

The sun made its appearance today
This country is a ball of fire
And this city, this city is made of stone
It´s not something we like to say
But this house is on fire
When you go out, be sure to find a home

In the moment that precedes the storm
The birds are flying low, and the wind is blowing cold
It doesn´t scare me no more

You left us here
Through all the time
You´ve been away
You´re on your own tonight

I have a headache that never stops
It may be cause I´m half blind
Or maybe there are too many thoughts
That never seems to get
Any more real than all this mess
And when they do they´re mostly dust

In the moment that precedes the storm
The birds are flying low, and the wind is blowing cold
It doesn´t scare me no more

You left us here
Through all the time
You´ve been away
You´re on your own tonight
It´s been ten years
Now you arrive
Just so you know
You´re on your own tonight

Track Name: Big City Lights
Big City Lights

So long,
So lonesome
Gone with so much to do
And brother
As you´re leaving
I realize how much i´m stuck

Cause you´re free forever
Cause your fears have never trapped you
Cause you´re older than me
In the things that you choose

So when you come back
Will you tell me what life is like
Outside the big city lights
Where we were born

The problem
With constant laughter
Is the problem with constant tears
The only use for them
Is showing our most intolerable despair

And to make all this money
I´ve lived the most empty life
I spent all my money
Trying to forget it

What are the words that I should say
Before kissing your mouth
Before asking your name
Before saying i´m sorry for both of us

So when you come back
Will you tell me what love is like
Outside the big city lights
Where we were born

You say sometimes you´re sorry
For all the things you know
For never belonging
Cause you know that all is wrong

You said you had to leave
To remember what life is like
Outside of the gates
Of the tyranny of mankind


That have trapped us helpless
That have locked us blind
You shouldn´t believe everything you see
But you should believe me

So when you come back
Will you tell me what freedom is like
Outside the big city lights
Where we were born
