Track Name: On The Field
ON THE FIELD
(c) Ville-Veikko Markkanen

I 'm standing on the field
my back against the wind
summer`s dead and gone
and the wind is in the North

I 'm watching how the rain
is whipping golden grain
summer`s passed away fog`s rising on the bay...


Naked, all alone
I`m standing on the field
without a flame in soul
within a circle cold

accross the field I walk
and by the brook I stay
let me rest a while
I beg you and I pray

Let me stay...


My eyes, turn to red I have cried for heaven sent
Now let me see just one more dawn by the sea
I will miss me...


Rise, one more time
Rise so high up to the sky
Shine - for me-shine
You are mine - you`re only mine...

Rise, so proud and free
You know how to fly and let me see
Shine - for me shine
You are mine - this time you`re mine...
Track Name: Dignity
DIGNITY
(c) Ville-Veikko Markkanen

The oceans, the lakes, the banks of the rivers
The highways, the roads and the trails in the fields

Generations, families, children of the dying towns
Here I `m floating and searching for my own


Nothing is easy, this road is so long
You live, take your own and keep the faith

So soon it `s all gone, in a wink of an eye
Keep on pushing, one day you will find yourself


As we laugh as we cry
So we live, so we die

Believe, there is no easy way out

What for you stand, what for you fight
Sing it loud, it keeps you proud
Dignity is all you have

---------------

The freeways, the skyways, so far away from here
In my silence, no voices, no echoes I can hear
The call of the wild, the cold nights under that naked sky

Here in the middle I am searching for my own...

As we laugh as we cry
So we live, so we die

Believe, there is no easy way out

What for you stand, what for you fight
Sing it loud, it keeps you proud
Dignity is all you have...
