Track Name: Walking Upright
Gaïa Sin Phonic - Walking Upright

Verse 1
Billion years in the making
Defined the world that we see
Glorified by the rays of lights
The earth was brought to life
It first appeared in the waters
Than shaped itself
to reach the land
In all the species
that had come to be
Expanding from life itself

Pre chorus
An ever-changing world
was made alive
It’s evolution
Breaking into time

Chorus
So it evolved from then
From the cells of the land
Transition of this life
We can barely explain
When began the story
And sadly, how it ends
So many theories

After-chorus
Out of the blue,
appeared a creature
who could think
Fascinated
by what it’s own mind created
As they began to plan and innovate
Walking upright, communicate

Jazz bridge
It’s the new way of walking
and the groove is getting louder
The first cave painting
prove their growing visions
No longer will they be afraid of
playing with fire
“This flaming light
will burn our enemies”

Guitar solo/Verse 2
They have crafted the spear
To be the ultimate hunter
As they spread
all across the globe
Before the continent shattered
Moved from cave to construction
The wheel is turning and helped
them move the stones
In all the cultures
that had come to be
From village to empire

Pre-chorus
But still some mysteries remain
THE evolution
To the kingdom of mankind

Chorus
No need to harmonize
With the world that Has made them
Nothing stands in the way
Of the beast who could think
They have riseN in the sky
Through the frontiers of space
For a glimpse of infinity

After-chorus
Everything was going on
so perfectly
Before men claimed
the crown of the earth
Their intellect
has proven no respect
No need to merge, to be as one
has the truth been hidden from us?
the origin of mankind

Outro
We can’t go back to change
the walk of evolution
The time is now
it’s in the hands of men
A strange mix of love, hate
creation and destruction
Let’s hope they live in peace
someday
Track Name: Circus Freak
Gaïa Sin Phonic - Circus Freak

Verse 1
Stolen from their family
Beaten with a stick
This show is a catastrophe
But it sure sells really quick
There will be several sanctions
if they don’t
Perform their silly tricks
Uncivilized ways
to make them understand
Resistance is useless
They have to perform tricks

Chorus:
It’s a misuse of nature
Fed by torture
The human nature
Pain for your pleasure
Don’t bring your kids
to this madness
Let the animal out
of this sadistic mess
Free them of their chains
Give them what they claim
Free them of their chains! yeah!

Verse 2:
Reduced to object of amusement
Dominated by this race
This race that we call our own
Is unashamed to rule the show
Revealing backstage cruelty
where they are
Abused for their own skills
It is time to talk
for those who cannot speak
Give them back their dignity
React to what you see

Chorus 2:
It’s a misuse of nature
Fed by torture
The human nature
Pain for your pleasure
Don’t bring your kids
to this madness
Let the animal out
of this sadistic mess
oh! Free them of their chains
Give them what they claim
Free them of their chains! yeah!

Outro:
Or forever slave to be...
The circus freak you see
Yeah! All right!
All right my friend
I’ll see you again
On the other side
Under those cruel,
cruel lights
Track Name: Wolf's Tribe
Gaïa Sin Phonic - Wolf's Tribe

Verse 1
A new day has awakened
And my eyes are already opened
Feeling the heat of the sun
My spirit is ready to walk on
All around me
the forest screams it’s beauty
Through the water’s reflection
I can see the beast I overrun

Pre-chorus:
How could this be me
For their kind I’ve got no sympathy
I’ve been killing greedily for money
Now nature is showing me
what I could not see

Chorus:
Now I own a wolf’s tribe
How could this be
I had my own life
And killing them was my duty
Facing the sunlight
I finally feel free

Verse 2
In this gathering of exotic lust
I can feel and I can trust
What I once refused to embrace
Struggle between beast and man
Taking over my soul
Now is my second chance to prove
I’m not cold-hearted

Pre-chorus:
How could this be me
For their kind I’ve got no sympathy
I’ve been killing greedily for money
Now nature is showing me
what I could not see

Chorus:
Now I own a wolf’ s tribe
How could this be
I had my own life
And killing them was my duty
Facing the sunlight
I finally feel free

Piano solo/Minor verse:
Across the river
I can smell someone
Feeling the danger
I can’t trust anyone
If the beast is a man
I’m surely close to the end
Fearing gun canons
My instincts tell me to run

I can hear their foot steps
I can smell their filth
They are already here
Colors moving before my eyes
As I run for safety
A bullet crushed my head
Blood gushing everywhere
I weep while they cheer

Guitar solo

Final Chorus:
It’s the end of my wolf’s tribe
How could this be
I had my own life
And they took it away from me
nature’s still inside
I’m feeling alright...
Track Name: Lost Soldier
Gaïa Sin Phonic - Lost Soldier

Verse 1
Seeing human aggression
on every corner
Finding no signs of values
No one to care about
environmental issues
Lost in the world degradation
No hero by our side
We face this world alone
The knights of our
conscience are gone
But the dreams remain
They have managed to survive
This world… This pain…
Deep inside!!!

Verse 2
What can we possibly say?
To a young man
trapped in confusion
Whose only wish
is to change this reality
Get a chance to be somebody
The offer he had yesterday
Just seemed like the only way
Finally, he will prove he is worthy
Suddenly, he could make a change

Pre-chorus
They told him he could be
a hero for his country
Live a life full of adventure
Helping the ones in need
Without knowing what was hidden
under their hypnotizing speech
He signed all the papers
And joined them in vain!

Chorus
Strongly motivated
Trying to make them proud
Suddenly his life is changing
Every morning, out for training
Its time to break free
Strong and ready
He found a way
to leave his past behind
where it belongs

Solo guitar/Verse 3
And after all that
he’s been through
Nothing seemed to get to him
Is superior insults
had no effect or so few…
Showing strength
to gain some respect
While every day
they raise the edge
But he believes in the choice
he has made for himself

Pre-chorus
They told him he could be
a hero for his country
Live a life full of adventure
Helping the ones in need!
Without knowing what was hidden
under their hypnotizing speech
He signed all the papers
(and joined them in vain)

Chorus 2
Slowly understanding
Everything behind
By the time he ended training
His point of view had changed
Its time to take the plane
Because war can’t wait
The battlefield revealed
the truth to him
After-chorus
Its not like they said it would be
In order to survive
He became the thing
he swore to destroy
NO enemies but
lost soldiers like me
Trying to stay alive
Then who’s to blame?
For the death
of a thousand soldiers

please don’t forget about me
try, try, try, try,
Not to forget about me

Solo guitar/Chorus 3
Sadly realizing
He is just a number
That no one will remember
Even if he lives, will he recover?
Too late to turn back
To end those visions
He’s shooting with eyes closed

After-chorus 2
Lost in the blood
of the Warfield
He managed to survive
But some real injuries
where left inside
NO enemies but
lost soldiers like me
And I killed them all
The choice has been made
And the politicians
are delighted
Track Name: Desert Of Man
Gaïa Sin Phonic - Desert Of Man

Verse 1
They couldn’t remember, our days
When the air was still pure
They couldn’t discover, Our world
When the forest grew so tall
Nothing was left
for them to learn from
Somehow, Nothing was left
for them to see

Verse 2
Every year
A new plague rises
And every day, Children die
And they wonder, Why life
was meant to fade away
As they try hard to survive

chorus 1
Presenting the world
when we are gone
The human child of our near future
Became the victim of our actions…
We leave them in a world
filled with pollution
With no resources
to reach tomorrow
Without a place
to call their own
We left them no hope
no hope, no home...

Verse 3
To the future generations
Doomed by the previous ones
After the world wars
And the choice we made
Their own future was confiscated
It’s a dead end for mankind
Do you realize all that we left behind?
This is our legacy
A shattered land

chorus 2
Presenting the world
when we are gone
The human child of our near future
Became the victim of our actions…
We leave them in a world
filled with pollution
With no resources to reach tomorrow
Without a place to call their own
We left them no hope

Rock finale:
Tell them why
No more birds will come singing
While the temperature’s rising
Factories have poisoned the air
Tell them we’re the disaster
As they crave for a future
Trapped in the desert of man
Heal this land
End their pain
Heal the earth
It’s too late
Now that they stand
near the end of the world
What can be done?
Against mankind redemption

outro
this land will become
the land of our sons
this world is not ours...
forever
someday, we will be gone
Track Name: Bottom Line
Gaïa Sin Phonic - Bottom Line

Feel the pressure
Experience stress
For life, is a dramatic race
Try to reach the top
While the others let you down
By trying to take your place
Never change your ways
Don’t act like them
It could only make it worse
What you project
affects the world around you

Verse 1
Imagine a light so bright
It could lighten the whole world
Prevent the fears and the pain
AND Stop the blood from our wounds
And save the one you love
from this world in peril
No more hunger, no more disaster
Soldiers returning home
As they realize
They have, no enemy
And no purpose to kill
At all

Chorus 1:
OH! That’s the bottom line
I can’t take it anymore
This pressure you put on me
hAs made me lose control
It’s a shame
But he don’t mind
Oppressing everybody
For his precious, MONEY!!!!!

Verse 2
Imagine a world so dark
Where people die in strange ways
Anger leads your choices in life
Your profits made YOU lose your mind
This time I will show you
what I’m made of
Anything to reach their goal
They are about to make me lose control
Do they have any feelings?
Every one’s a business man
Trying to make some money on your head
Or steal your love away!

Chorus 2:
Oh that’s the bottom line
I can’t take it anymore
the promise you made to me
Will never see the day
It’s a shame
But you don’t mind
Betraying everybody
for your precious money!!!
just stop oppressing me
you have no right
Soon everyone will hate you
Abuse of power
Can make you feel
like you truly own the world
but someday, you will fall

Outro
Just stop oppressing me
i can’t stand the pressure
you put on me, please, please
stop oppressing me..
Track Name: The Balance Of It All
Gaïa Sin Phonic - The Balance Of It All

Intro 1:
Oh let’s stand up
Stop listening
to all the plans
they present to you
Let’s make a stand
For our homeland
They sell, And waste
The essential needs
Like water,
Forest and pure air
We buy from them
and depend on the system
We waste more
and we expand!

Wake up
Witness the wildlife scream
The flaws of science
hAs expropriated life
Natures in peril
in the landfill we’ve created
Clean energy is at hand
you remember
And we could make it work
all together
Its equilibrium or disaster
Choose your path

Verse 1:
Inside yourself
within society
The conflict remains
it’s a reality
Economy versus ecology
Life won’t survive if you ask me
I fear the world
will change for us to see
Climatic rage will be monotony
Economy versus ecology
Can we find the balance of it all?

Chorus 1:
Feel the eco system dying
While those in need
don’t stand a chance
Do you realize really realize
They sold your land
Do you realize really realize
They sold your land
Feel the echo system dying...
while those in need...

Verse 2:
The war is on
for the oil industry
Behind your back
they’re cutting all the trees
Technology versus ecology
Financial theories
Nuclear trash
hidden under the sea
We know it’s there
but we need energy
Technology versus ecology
Will earth survive from man?

Chorus (2)
Feel the eco system dying
While those in need
don’t stand a chance
Do you realize really realize
They sold your land
Do you realize really realize
They sold your land
Feel the echo system dying...
while those in need
don’t stand a chance!
Track Name: The Bridge
Gaïa Sin Phonic - The Bridge

Verse 1
Here we are
standing in front of you
Staring at the beauty of it all
Searching for the quietness
of the night
Filling up the gap
within our souls
Here we are lying in the sand
Shivering like leaves
before the fall
Starting to believe
what wasn’t real
Understanding truly
who we are

Chorus 1
All at once, I see
I can make, Your dreams
Free to live, I will
Walk the distance
Between You and I
Look at me, Inside
hEar the call, The vibe
Feel the peace, Will you
Walk the distance
Before The skies

Verse 2
Here you are
making up your way
Through this life
you try to ease the pain
Looking through the eyes
of a broken star
Running after all
you wasted away
won’t you Take the time
to reach up to your heart
Tell me how it is that
that you can’t see
What is the good reason
to break free
The nature of your will
strong as can be

Chorus 2
look at me inside
hear the call, the vibe
feel the peace, will you
Walk the distance,
before the skies
All at once, I see
I can make, Your dreams
Free to live, I will
Walk the distance
Between You and I

Guitar solo/Bridge
Do you believe that everything
happens for a reason?
And when you close your eyes,
do you see the future?
And if you could, would you
forget about the past
and erase all that’s happened?
Just look deep inside
to find and feel the light!

Musical break/Piano solo

Chorus 3
We believe, In you
We are all, As one
We decide, Our faith
so Let’s make it, Beautiful
Look at me, Inside
Ear the call, The vibe
Feel the peace, Will you
Walk the distance,
Before The skies
All at once, I see
I can make, Your dreams
Free to live, I will
Walk the distance,
Between You and I
All at once, I see
I can make, Your dreams
Free to live, I will
Walk the distance,
Between You and I

Outro
And if we all join for the cause
We can make the world a better place
For everyone to offer our children
The beauty of Gaïa as their own land
Track Name: Break Of Dawn
Gaïa Sin Phonic - Break Of Dawn

Intro
She came to me
As the deepest desire
I had ever encountered
There ain’t no words
To describe what I saw
And neither to explain
How I felt inside
She had long dark hair
And the sweetest little face
Graceful curves
and cat-like eyes
So I’ve introduced myself to her
And she answered with a smile

Can this be?
Dare to see
Gotta let this night become
the night of our life time
Wildest dream,
attraction before my eyes

Verse 1
Then the time simply stopped
She was there, all alone
I did not understand
Why she was on her own
I could not lose my chance
But I knew how it feels
When a beautiful angel
Takes shape in your heart
Never knowing
What will happen
At the break of dawn

Chorus 1:
Candle lights
With a flame of desire
She will be mine tonight
Like a whispering fantasy
She came alive
And made me lose my mind
The instincts took control of me
This passion flows inside
Within herself
Within herself
Tonight

Verse 2
Then it felt like a shock
Like a hot Latin rock
When she reached for my lips
And took me to her room
She was all mine to use
I was dazed and confused
While this beautiful stranger
Took shape in my heart
Never knowing
What will Happen
At the break of dawn

Chorus 2:
Candle lights
With a flame of desire
She will be mine tonight
Like a whispering fantasy
She came alive
And made me lose my mind
The instincts took control of me
This passion flows inside
Within herself
Within herself
Tonight
Track Name: One Last Day
Gaïa Sin Phonic - One Last Day

Intro
Hey!
When was the warning?
Is this the end of our lives?
Is it time for us?
Is this a nightmare?
Someone awake us in time
Before the reaper comes

Verse 1
One last day
And so much left to say
I suddenly regret all the pain
I made to others
All those things I did
MOSTLY those I should have done
Carrying the weight
of this tragic knowledge
Knowing this world will end tonight
What would you do?
If you knew you had only one last day?

Chorus 1
Save me
Guide me
Heal me
I GOT CARRIED Away
Could this be the last day?
Can you take this away?

Verse 2
One last day
No more time left to pray
It’s hard to say goodbye
when you didn’t plan to leave
All those dreams you had
All the sacrifices you made
Leaving your love
in this saddest moment
Knowing tomorrow
will never come
What would you do?
If you knew you had
only one last day

Chorus 2
Where would you go?
If there’s no more road
No more sun to light your way
No distance to get away
No escape
Save me
Guide me
Heal me
I GOT CARRIED Away
Could this be the last day?

Bridge
So, What do you want to do last?
With Only 24 hours to go
Before the end of days
How would you say goodbye
to those you love?
Unfair and surprising
Here’s the moment
We have all feared
The time when our true gift
Will be taken away from us
Back to dust
Hope is lost
Take my hand
Love me until the end
Hey, that was a warning
go on and enjoy your life
Before time runs out
GO!!!

Guitar solo/Outro
So the next time
you feel like giving up on life
When all your hope
seems to weaken by despair
Think about the chance
that you have to be alive
And know that things
could always be worse
Nobody should have to choose
the day they die
While the innocent face
their undeserved death
By the hands of the murderer
in a tragic accident
By an incurable disease
Your life could end in a flash
without knowing
why It was your turn
Why it was your time
It’s always when you lose it
that you truly miss it
And the end comes too soon…
Track Name: Choices
Gaïa Sin Phonic - Choices

Intro
So many chapters
overflowing with cruelty
Aggressively reformed
in a more civilized time
With every century (with every memory)
the shadow of greed
the quest for glory

Verse 1
Every day of our existence
Crucial decisions needed to be made
Sometimes we don’t see
the impact of those choices
But at the end
Everything depends on it
Must we follow the same path
our predecessors did?

Pre-chorus
Would you please Open your eyes
And take the time to…
Reconsider the options
Look all around you
We’ve got so much to lose
And so few who really cares
Violently the truth will comes
For every choices has its own cost

Chorus
Everything depends upon
The choice we make on each day
Living like there’s no tomorrow
Consequences will soon follow
take a moment to look back
in mankind’s history
you will find out
nothing has changed
in human nature

Verse 2
Every day near your residence
Factory’s building bombs
ready to explode
While your country tells you
its for your good and protection
The result is a massive destruction
Above everyone huge corporations
Are pulling the wires

Pre-chorus 2
They bought the resources
that belong to every living being
Wasting food everyday
While some nations
are starving and dying
Millions wasted in arsenal
No more doctors to heal the sick
In this proud society (what do you see?)

Chorus 2
everything depends upon
The choice we make on each day
Living like there’s no tomorrow
Consequences will soon follow
take a moment to look back
in mankind’s history
you will find out
nothing has changed
in human nature

After-chorus
All those men
we have hanged or shot down
Because of their point of view
or the color of their skin
We truly need to open our minds!

Bridge
Most of you would say
What choices do we have?
I’m losing control of my own life
And you ask me to change the world
What you ask is nothing but an idealist vision
Who am I to make a change?
Is there someone who cares?
Why is it that the most powerful men
Only claims for higher power
and never considered the others

Chorus 3
everything depends upon
The choice we make on each day
Living like there’s no tomorrow
Consequences will soon follow
take a moment to look back
in mankind’s history
you will find out
nothing has changed
