  • It's in the letters that he made
    It's in the January rain
    In casinos and the shops
    How many people do you know?
    How many friends will you outgrow?
    Who are you anyway?
    You bought the sin around the same
    The wolf, the man, the things you hate
    I have become that ferocious loser
    It's in the darkest of your thoughts
    It's in the Paris on the shores
    It's in the mirror

    A flash of colour
    People watch from the shoreline
    Sacred colours moving across the sky

    It's on the tip of every tongue
    In luck for gold and happy young
    At the bottom of a drink
    You've killed a thousand times or more
    Soldiers, a biker, every whore
    You're the most honest thing
    'Cause living inside a simulator
    Giving [?] her creator brings you warmth
    It's not as simple as they say
    It's hard enough to run from spring
    You've to run all the things you can

    A flash of colour
    People watch from the shoreline
    Sacred colours moving across the sky

    Face the weeks and hearts will never break
    You see some ties and casually leave them there
    Always will understand survival of the mind
    The clear is where the head needs to be, to be
    All together, welcome every land
    It's clear to all, it's endless to make amends
