English translations of lyrics:
Už len raz / One last time

One last time to wade through this
Mess of muddiness
To kindly cross
Impassable waters
One last time to take a walk
Through the darkness

Oh, and then clean
As morning skies
With you inside me I shall go
To where I break free

I no longer insist on
What I used to insist on
I open all doors
That we´ve found with locks on
And all that comes my way,
I will receive

I open the curtains
Undimming the windows
I bring to the table
What´s there left to eat

Ani náhodou / Nothing by chance

For so long we´ve only slept inside
For such a long time we´ve lived make-beliefs
And now we know what´s it all been for
And now we know how to be free

Clouds dissolve as we look their way
Spending a while in the warmth of the Sun
We wave hello to travelling birds
And pack our bags for the journey

And now we know what´s it all been for
And at last we know how to be free

Our heartland is calling us home
And obstacles know which way to move
And now we know what´s it all been for
Nothing can come around just by chance

And nothing will happen to us just by chance
And nothing will happen to us just by chance
And nothing will happen to us just by chance
And nothing will happen to us just by chance

Berlin – Grenoble - Arles

This train from Berlin is full of people
With heads full of thoughts of other people
I can´t see through them
I can´t see through them

I was complete and I was alone
When you said:
La la la la la

Full and alone
Empty and alone
Happy and alone
Zrkadlo / Mirror

A merciful mirror is what I am, you
Just look into me
The only thing you´ll get from me
Is what I receive from you

When you´re good and hoping
A big hoping
Begins its way from me to you
Gently takes you in your arms

And with no faith in yourself
Oh, how could I help you
I´m just a merciful mirror
A mirror
Reflecting back at you

Your faithlesness
Your faithlesness

A mirror you can´t break is what I am
Just try to land a hit
Every hit you throw
Will only land on you

When I hear a kind word
When you do the right talk
I reward you with the like
That´s what you´ll receive from me

Som modré more / I´m a blue sea

I´m a blue sea
Breaking and breaking onto the shore
And in the waves I´m also the shore

On the shore I am grass
Bent at the waist
waving the wind
in blossom I wave
I am the beast grazing
on the grass every day

At night we are pleas
Rising to the stars
Up from chimneys

At night we are stars
Falling to the pleas
Down the chimneys

I´m you, of you, part of you
that´s standing here before you
I´m me too

And you are mine all of me before me
I call you, here and now
Come back home

Červená modrá / Red blue

Red blue blood
A naked naked naked stream
Naked naked naked stream
Naked naked naked stream

Between the heart and the head

When the heart commands go!
And the head says stop!

All there´s left is the stream
Red and blue and naked
Between the heart and the head
The stream
Flowing between the heart and the head

Anjel môj / Angel mine

Angel mine stand by me for all time to come
Take away my unrest and quiet me now
How about this crowded way down
Will that not be my way?

Where to find paths that will lead to our goal?
What fills the soul when it feels all at home?
And who shall guide us through the underworld?
The underworld

That what is down and quiet
Shouts at us when it´s high up
The same thing that´s lifting us higher
can also bring it all down

What does it feel like to sink in a free fall?
What when our feet hit the ground?
Will we get up?

Lover mine stand by me for all time to come
Quiet me and throw away your unrest too
This path is leading where it should lead
At its end

Peace awaits

Okná oči čisté / Windows eyes clean

I´m flying into winterland
The land of birds
They teach me
How to unearth
What´s remained deep down in me,
Hidden, forgotten
A corner unexplored

Windows eyes clean
Misty days in-between
Untill it clears up inside of me
The rain will fall
Let my vision clear

For that which grows inside of me
Changing each day inside of me
Every day I plea
To come around

For what I´ve always had in store
For that what is behind the door
I plea to come

We have been given
All we can think of
This light that binds us
Restlessly circles
Around us, above us
And within us

Dary / Gifts

When I have gifts
I open openings
And I give gifts

When I lose gifts
I unbridge gaps
And become alone

Gifts I got gifts
Gonna give gifts
Gonna give gladly
Gifts, give you gifts

My dve / The 2 of Us

You are now and always will be
Unchanged by the touch of others
Stable as change
Nevere turn into
Somebody else

Fine just the way you are
I always see you
As me, walking without me

Twofold and so me
Twofold and so you
Twofold and so me
Twofold and so whole

There´s nothing
That can put me back together
When I want to be apart
There´s nothing that can melt me
When I decide to turn into ice

Only you can make me whole
Lead me, refine me and melt me

You let me flow into the sea
Now I become one with it so easily
To carry the destiny of my parts
To swallow my share of hits

Of two halves so me
Of two halves so you
Of two halves so me
Of two halves whole

Slnko stúpa / The Sun is rising

When I come near you
I just want to touch you
Just touch you for a while
Touch you deep

We can talk to each other
Breathe and sleep and eat and drink
Often I watch you, thinking,
You´re the one I will go further with

The Sun is rising and
I´m silently rising with her

Each day we get up again
You dive into my waters wild
I rise up towards you
Rising up towards you

Today we flow into each other like two rivers
And nothing can split our common stream
We burn like two logs in a fire
And no one can tell our ashes apart

The Sun is rising and
I´m silently rising with her


Windmills grind the wind
Into energy that flows between us
Flapping their white wings

Driving away the thoughts of a calm
Of a time with no current
When it becomes clear
Who holds a candle and who holds the fire

Who wants to
Knows how to
Can burn.


This where this world of ours
Is coming to an end
Fish sing and fly
The music flows into the sea
And our hearts ring out freedom
Bim, bam, bom, bim, bam, bom

Gloria, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria
Gloria, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria

a must hear! beautiful soundscapes (what i like to call 'small soundscapes', because these are not walls of sounds, but delicate and intimate ones, like the cracking of twigs, or a small cozy fire ...) ... gorgeous!!
