Track Name: Journey to Venus
The journey to Venus is the journey back to the womb.
We eat everything in our path, all these dishes we consume
But we just walk and in walking, each step a feast without a crime
And we just walk and in walking, each step a love that's trapped in time

You cannot walk this path in fear
You must fall till you don't need to prove it
For we all will settle, for nothing less than authenticity

As all as one as equal, on the path of equality
On the knife's edge in perfect peril
Walking this path for all eternity
Track Name: Beginnings
Another step in time
Another closed door
Another broken heart
Another reason to die to be reborn
An open book
A truly open book
A world of attention
A world that waits

Waiting for us all to dream
To live life open and content
We have the energy
Winner or loser, let's forget about this

Dream the perfect dream
Dream the perfect dream
Dream the perfect dream
Dream the perfect dream

Let's dream a dreamless dream of pathways undiscovered by the mind
Let's dream an open book a truly truly open open book

A habit, a culture, a repetitive behaviour
We are lost in time but for these
The earth is breathing still
The stars still glimmer
Don't look for the end it will come
Look for new beginnings
Track Name: The Butterfly's Burden
The poem in 'The Butterfly's Burden' read by Monti Karus is an adapted translation of the poem 'Nothing Pleases Me' by Palestinian born poet Mahmoud Darwish:

Nothing pleases me
Says the traveler on the bus

The radio doesn't say it
or the morning paper
or the citadels on the hill

I want to cry

The driver says to me
Wait until you get to the station
Then you can cry alone all you want

A mother says, I agree, nothing pleases me either
I guided my son to my grave, he made a home there and slept
and then left without a goodbye

A student says: Nothing please me, I studied archaeology but I did not find my identity in stone
Am I really me?

The soldier says, me too, nothing
I always end up besieging a ghost that besieges me

At last the driver says:
Here we are, almost at our final stop
Get ready to leave

Then together they exclaim
We want what's beyond the station, keep going!

As for me, just let me off here
I am must like them
Nothing pleases me
But I am tired from travel
