Without Walls

I. Every Moment

Lights burn out, dark prevails.

Should I wait for the moment?
Feel the space, chance hangs weighted.

Should I wait for the moment?
I don’t know where to place my feet.

I don’t know what I will become.
I don’t know where to place my feet.

I don’t know what I will become.

 

Should I run for the break of day or should I wait for the moment?
Should I wait for the break of day or should I run for the moment?

Kiss the night, embrace my faith.

Know I will find the moment!
Release the weight, freedom’s waiting.

Know I will find the moment!
I don’t know where to place my feet.

I don’t know what I will become.
I don’t know where to place my feet.

I don’t know what I will become.

 

Should I run for the break of day or should I wait for the moment?
Should I wait for the break of day or should I run for the moment?


I don’t know if there will be a right time so I don’t know if now is the best time.

I don’t know if there will be a right time so I don’t know if now is the best time.

 

Should I run for the break of day or should I wait for the moment?
Should I wait for the break of day or should I run for the moment?

I don’t know where! I don’t know how!

Should I run for the moment?

I don’t know where! I don’t know how!

Should I run for the moment?

 

Kiss the night, embrace my faith. Know I am in the moment!

III. Tu Es Mon Choix

Je t’aime avec tout mon coeur, mais je ne sais pas comment te le dire.

Je pense souvent à toi mais je ne sais pas comment te le dire.

Tes yeux éclairent plus que le soleil.

Mon coeur sourit quand j’entend ta voix. Je t'aime !

 

Tu es mon choix !

Je chante “Tu es mon choix !”

Mon amour est pour toi

parce que tu est mon choix.

 

Quand je te vois je suis le désert, qui est béni avec la pluie.

Quand tu quittes je suis la goute d’eau solitaire dans la rivière.

 

Shanteya

je chante “Tu es mon choix !”

Mon amour est pour toi

parce que tu es mon choix.

Tu es mon choix !

C’est toi Shanteya !

Mon amour est pour toi

parce que tu es mon choix !

Parce que tu es mon choix !

Parce que tu es mon choix !

V. Venezia

The old paved streets they wind and turn like twisted vines

Go to the end you’ll find you stand by waters side

So take the other road the one you didn’t plan to go

Follow your feet you’ll see your story’s never been told

 

Let your voice out don’t let your song be bound

We’re here right now we travelled not the same road

No-o-o but we sail on the same boat

Oh-o-o moving forward we go on

 

With red roses in hand by proud towers we stand

Where water surrounds the land follow the soulful sound

Through the cobbled maze past grand temples of praise

Come together through song and share a beautiful exchange

 

Let your voice out don’t let your song be bound

We’re here right now we travelled not the same road

No-o-o but we sail on the same boat

Oh-o-o moving forward we go on

 

Let your voice out don’t let your song be bound

We’re here right now we travelled not the same road

No-o-o but we sail on the same boat

Oh-o-o moving forward we go on

VII. Wolves of Montenegro

Bare your teeth young one,

they come with their fire axes and guns

Our claws are sharp and strong,

but powered by greed they’ve come for blood

So bare your teeth and howl,

give them something to fear though they should fear themselves

Release the mountain’s sound,

this is our home so stand your ground


We are the wolves that cry

We are the mountain’s sound

We are the wolves that cry


Misty peaks lookout,

where dark conifers march to higher ground

Climb them soaring towers,

the road’s deadly steep so never look down

Bare your teeth and howl,

let our songs be heard clear through the valleys profound

The forest sleeps for now,

so awaken the ancient mighty power


We are the wolves that cry

We are the mountain’s sound

We are the wolves that cry


The mountain eye she stirs,

her silvery depths have seen all blessed and cursed

Bear and falcon bow,

while the sycamore seeks her wisdom out

“Protect this realm” she howls,

“keep the poison away from our veins listen now.”

“Fight with all your will,

but true victory comes when no blood is spilled.”


We are the wolves that cry

We are the mountain’s sound

We are the wolves that cry


Bare your teeth young one they come they come oh

Bare your teeth young one they come they come they’re strong

Bare your teeth young one they come they come for blood

Bare your teeth and howl

 

We are the wolves that cry

We are the mountain’s sound

We are the wolves that cry

We are the wolves that cry

We are the mountain’s sound

We are the wolves that cry

They’re coming they’re coming

IX. Coming Home

We’re coming home from the road and all its stones

We’re coming home from the church bell’s call at dawn

We’re coming home from the trees of red and gold

We’re coming home from the windy cobbled road

 

We are young and we are old

We are coloured rainbow

From the ice caves to the desert wind

From the islands to the mountains

We are one and we are all

We’re all life this world holds

From the ice caves to the desert wind

From the islands to the mountains

 

We’re coming home from the castles and their thrones

We’re coming home from the many lingual tones

We’re coming home from the winter’s growing cold

We’re coming home from this minstrel’s life we’ve known

 

We are young and we are old

We are coloured rainbow

From the ice caves to the desert wind

From the islands to the mountains

We are one and we are all

We’re all life this world holds

From the ice caves to the desert wind

From the islands to the mountains

 

From the darkness to the light, from blindness to clear sight

 

We are young and we are old

We are coloured rainbow

From the ice caves to the desert wind

From the islands to the mountains

We are one and we are all

We’re all life this world holds

From the ice caves to the desert wind

From the islands to the mountains

We are one and we are all

We’re all life this world holds

From the ice caves to the desert wind

From the islands to the mountains

II. Without Walls

Rainy days break summer haze it falls down

We’ve sung our songs through many lands now

Your voice it calls me home your eyes are my fire side

Your lips awake my soul

 

And the walls fall down

As the ocean pounds

We stand like day and night we, we stand side by side

With walls torn town

 

Cold wind blows in from shore we will explore

But for now your hands warm mine

Your cheeky smile and your loyalty they urge me to give all of me

My love’s right here lain out

 

And the walls fall down

As the ocean pounds

We stand like day and night we, we stand side by side

With walls torn town

 

With my best strength I give all of me

You pull my heart as moon draws the sea

Let our love reign down

 

And the walls fall down

As the ocean pounds

We stand like day and night we, we stand side by side

We stand like day and night we, our love is intertwined

With walls torn town

IV. Brother, When The Wind Blows

Keep your hat upon your head

when the wind blows, when the wind blows

Keep your scarf around your neck

when your world snows, when your world snows

Keep your courage in your heart

when the siege starts, when the siege starts

Keep your hat upon your head

don’t let them armies eat their bread

           

I’ve been trying to tell you for years to let go of your worldly fears

whatever those strangers, friends or peers been saying don’t matter to your ears

Its your life so live it how you’re wanting it to be

don't let the wagon slow you down, get on your track and be free

 

Keep your hat upon your head

when the wind blows, when the wind blows

Keep your scarf around your neck

when your world snows, when your world snows

Keep your courage in your heart

when the siege starts, when the siege starts

Keep your hat upon your head

don’t let them armies eat their bread

 

Hold on to your family and your heart oh yeah now

Hold on to your family and your heart

Hold on to your family and your heart

Be proud of who you are

 

You are a blessing to the world

 

We don’t care if you been falling we’re just happy you’re alive

You are a blessing to the world you are a blessing to our lives

Be the spark who sets the world ablaze the drop who breaks the dam walls reign

The tree with roots deep in the ground

 

Keep your hat upon your head

when the wind blows, when the wind blows

Keep your scarf around your neck

when your world snows, when your world snows

Keep your courage in your heart

when the siege starts, when the siege starts

Keep your hat upon your head

don’t let them armies eat their bread

 

Don’t let them armies eat their bread,

don’t let them armies eat their

Don’t let them armies eat their bread yeah

Don’t let them armies eat their bread

VI. The Winged Lion

The Winged Lion watches over San Marco

Haunted masks below come and go, they come and go

But the Winged Lion watches from dawn to dusk to dawn

As haunted masks fade one face remains, the Winged Lion

VIII. Taken

Can you hear?
Can you hear me?

 

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh

 

The wind she sings with her hollow tongue

Reveals cracks and spaces

That have been there for so long

Cloaked beneath the darkness

The wind she howls her ferocious roar

Tearing at rooves and tree tops

Where we quiver not from the cold

But the power that this night holds

 

We sit here waiting anticipating

Praying its not our hour to be

Taken

To be taken

 

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh

 

Skeleton trees twist through the mist

Leaves torn from their branches

They bend so close to breaking

The wind her fill she’s taking

On the hill no lights do dance

Just the ever darkening expanse we

 

We sit here waiting

As candle light starts painting

We sit here waiting

Praying not to be taken

 

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh

 

No light, no light just the darkest night

Where haunting melodies steel away the sea

They dance freely

As thundering sea stallions they breathe

 

We sit here waiting anticipating

Praying its not our hour to be

Taken

To be taken

 

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh

 

We sit here waiting anticipating

Praying its not our hour to be

Taken

To be taken
