Here to Learn
(Lyrics:Plamen Uzunov)

I woke up inside the womb
In my mind, memories fading fast
And that familiar feeling
of the physical world is coming back

Outside, joy and pain await
This cycle never ends
I’m ready; it’s time again

I am here to learn
from past mistakes
Back in this world
for another chance
Here to learn
all the hard lessons of life
Here to learn

I can’t wait for the hour
When the dream of life will start again
This time I have no fear
By lies I won’t be chained
No I won’t be chained

My mother’s heartbeat counts the days
I don’t know what’s in store for me
Will I forget, will I forgive?

I am here to learn
from past mistakes
Back in this world
for another chance
Here to learn
all the hard lessons of life
Here to learn

I know that there'll be moments of despair
When there is no one there for me
There will be times when I'm my own worst enemy
But in the end I will be free

I am here to learn
from past mistakes
Back in this world
for another dance
Here to learn
all the hard lessons of life
Here to learn

Shelter Me
(Lyrics: Plamen Uzonov/Urban breed)

They’re my flesh and blood
I know this in my heart
They were scared, torn apart
So they left me behind

Dark, deep and desolate despair descends
Still to this day I don’t know from where you came

You watch over me when I’m lost in the dark
Carry my essence through fire
Sent on my way with your strength in my heart
Life carries on, I know you
watch over me when I’m lost in the dark
Carry my poor soul through fire
Sent on my way with your strength in my heart
When lost in the dark you shelter me

Along the winding road
that disappears ahead
I walk on
I don’t belong here anymore

Dry, drab and dreary—Dead, deserted dreams
My misfortune and my end must meet

You watch over me when I’m lost in the dark
You carry my essence through fire
Sent on my way with your strength in my heart
Life carries on, I know you
watch over me when I’m lost in the dark
You carry my poor soul through fire
Sent on my way with your strength in my heart
Lost in the dark you shelter me

Shelter me
Oh, shelter me
from the pouring rain
from the chilling wind
from imagining

I Am Alive
(Lyrics: Plamen Uzonov/Urban breed)

On the first summer day
I think I was twelve
We went to the forest with dad
Laughing and playing
but there was this feeling
like there’s something there waiting for me

Something there waiting
Behind every tree, just waiting for me
I realized—Oh! I realized

I was alive
The whole world was mine to take
For the very first time—I was alive
There’s a line in the palm of my hand
Summer and life just began

Days turn to years all too fast
and with all that has passed
It still feels like a child’s game to me
The battles I win
and the battles I lose all leave scars
And wiser I carry on

I scale each wall in my way
A new one each day
The pain when I fall helps me realize
Oh! I realize

I am alive The whole world is mine to take
No longer a child—I am alive
My hunger for life’s the same
The memory of summer remains

Long ago a dear old friend
brought a gift of bottled suns
It was dandelion wine
And every time I open one I smile
It brings the summer back

I am alive The whole world is mine to take
For the very first time—I am alive
There’s a line in the palm of my hand
Bring summer to life again

My whole life would shine
No , memory of summer remains

Beggars at the Door
(Lyrics: Plamen Uzonov/Urban breed)

Another day went by just yesterday
Another night goes by too fast
And every day presents the same bleak face
We never seem to catch a break

Life wears you down
Without a doubt
And tears you up

Though it seems this never ends
How everyone pretends
There’s no limit to how much we can endure
No one’s equal that’s for sure
We don’t choose where we’re born
And tonight we’re all but beggars at the door

Coming home with empty hands today
They’re closing down the factory floor
It’s never easy livin’ day to day
A hard day’s work should count for more

Life chews you up
Then spits you out

This is your life
This is your song
Oh , this is your life
This is where every thing goes wrong
Where every thing goes wrong

The Ungrateful Child
(Lyrics: Plamen Uzonov/Urban breed)

There’s a distant place
where you were laid to sleep
It’s overgrown and silent
Your eternal sleep is deep

and time just slips away
and time just slips away

I see you in my dreams
Your gentle touch, your care I miss
This ungrateful child
has finally come to say goodbye

There’s a special place
where memories ought to be
Where the laughter of a child
echoes through the years

and time just slips away
and time just slips away

I see you in my dreams
Your gentle care I miss
This ungrateful child
has finally come to say goodbye

In pictures from those days
I see the love you always gave
And though I know it’s too late to say
“I always loved you back”
I always loved you back

And time just slips away
Yes time just slips away

I see you in my dreams
Your gentle care I miss
This ungrateful child has finally come to say goodbye
I see you in my dreams
Your gentle care I miss
This ungrateful child
has finally come to say

I came to say goodbye

Timeless
(Lyrics: Plamen Uzonov/Urban breed)

Some say we’re born into this world alone
Our souls descend to be caged inside this flesh and bone
but I believe we’re friends from ages past and far beyond
We meet downstream life’s brief dream
to carry on what’s left undone

Eternal love—A higher plane
And I know love transcends almost anything

This love has no beginning
This love knows no end
This love burns with a fire
Oh love—Love, love is timeless

Time and space bend to our destiny
We don’t need words
In your eyes I see just what I feel
And I believe love’s harmony
and this goes way beyond
And hand in hand we make our stand
to carry out what we began

Life is short and time flies
But I know love can clear almost any sky

This love has no beginning
This love knows no end
This love burns with a fire
Oh love—Love is timeless

Eternal love—A higher plane
And I know love transcends almost anything

This love has no beginning
This love knows no end
This love burns with a fire
Oh love—Love, love is timeless

This love has no beginning
This love knows no end
This love burns with a fire And Love, love is timeless
Love is timeless

A Time of Changes
(Lyrics: Plamen Uzonov/Urban breed)

I’m writing my story as I wait for them
I’m unafraid
I might not make it through today
Looking back at life
I’m not sorry for anything I’ve done
If anything
I’ve sown the seeds of change

In a world where the self is denied
Can I share my emotion with you?
To be “me” is a terrible crime

I always felt like something’s wrong
Something’s missing far too long
When my brother took the throne
I had to run

Show me how you feel inside
Tell me, won’t you try?
Tell me when you realize
this life alone’s a lie

Why fate should choose me over anyone
I’ll never know
Now I’m a prophet all the same
The day the Earthman came
was the first dawn
the start of my new life
as a better man
A better man inside

With a drug that takes hold of the soul
I’m on pages, a book you can view
As you read every wish, every thought
I am you and you are me

From that day on life seemed estranged
from the truth, what’s in a name?
Others joined this secret game
could threaten society

Time has come, I won’t run anymore
Show the world I am real, I am bold
Take this book, let my story be told
I hope the seeds of change will grow

They’ll come and they will find me here
I will face them without fear
No man ever turned the tide
Just let them try

Life alone’s a lie

Formidable Foe
(Lyrics: Urban breed)

Feast your eyes on this
said the joker to the thief
You say I can’t—Just you watch
I shall try my hand at this

The joker smiles
There’s no reprieve
And you wonder why
I am reeling

There’s no contest here
Said the joker to the priest
I serve a purpose; you don’t
I’ll try my hand at this

And the joker smiles
There’s no reprieve
Just one more time
Now with feeling

Feast your eyes on this
The joker’s standing tall
And you know he is
quite the formidable foe
On a night like this
The joker in his prime
And you know he is
A formidable foe

The joker smiles
There’s no reprieve
You know why
I am reelin’

Feast your eyes on this
The joker’s standing tall
And you know he is
quite the formidable foe
Feast your eyes on this
The joker’s in his prime
And you know you are
A formidable foe

Lights out
Lights out
A formidable foe
Lights out
Lights out
The joker’s standing tall
on a night like this No!

The Deal
(Lyrics: Plamen Uzonov/Urban breed)

High expectations, careful designs
I have the perfect plan in mind, for you
I raise these walls for you—Welcome inside
I promise you freedom within their confines

Here’s what I propose my friend
Your mastery shall never end
Here’s the deal
More precious than gold
It’s something you earn
A lesson well learned

I live with shadows preying on my mind
I accept this sentence time after time
You raise those walls for me and you
bid me inside
Giving me refuge, for a while

I think I see your place in my dreams
I think I know just what it means
to promise you freedom within their confines

Shadows of the Night
(Lyrics: Plamen Uzonov/Urban breed)

I see the shadows of the night
Coming down like rain
Drowning all the world in darkness
And as the daylight slowly dies
I ask myself again
How did life turn into this madness?

Oh, Heaven is so far
Will we ever reach its holy light
before it is too late?
Oh, we’re movin’ on so fast
The more we live we learn
Although we love, we also hate

It’s not too hard to see
to imagine what it takes
To change the way we live
But do we ever try?
As long as we are twice removed
Expertly distancing the pain
Too far away, just one wall thick
And we’re all blind and deaf

At ease!
This show goes on forever
That’s right!
That’s right; Our world’s in tears

I see the shadows of the night
Coming down like rain
Drowning all the world in darkness
And as the daylight slowly dies
I ask myself again
How did life turn into this madness?

We’ve got so much—Want ever more
And you wonder what’s amiss
There’s an emptiness inside
that only love can fill
We know this oh, so well
and it’s the only way
Inside your heart and mind
I know you hear Earth’s children sing

With every step we take they echo louder
It’s time to make our final choice

And I see madness in the light
evaporating rain
Blinding all the world in its madness
And as compassion slowly dies
I ask myself again
Can I forgive? Can I forget?
Shadows of the night
Shadows of the night

They fall to night
They drown in light
They set you up for sure
That’s right
You are
You know you are
Shadows of the night
