Track Name: Pete, The Little Giant
It's a new day in the lands of man
Where he came to make a stand
"There's a new sheriff in town", he said
And so it all begins

Pete was just a little giant
Born to be great
He gave hope and dreams to everyone
As he passed through the gate

With the bad boys trying to defeat him
One at a time
He made all of them perish to his feet
As he made his glorious climb

But his greatest adventure
Was yet to come
Just let his strong heart pump
To the beat of the drum

Oh, this fire
It fills him with burning desire
You can't be deceived by the size of a man
Who is able to forge his own masterplan

Pete was just a little giant
Born to seek the truth
Every now and then, you could see his tries
To complete his blossom youth

But then, one day, he found her
And said "She is the one"
This little giant girl would be
The conquest of his run

So he dreamed
Every single night
With his moment of glory
With his endless might

Oh, this fire
It fills him with burning desire
You can't be deceived by the size of a man
Who is able to forge his own masterplan

It's a new day in the lands of man
Where he came to make a stand
"There's a new sheriff in town", he said
And so it all begins
Track Name: The Bourbon Tissue
The ship left the seaport of Lisbon
Alone, you, the ropes and the sea
And the white tissue soaked in bourbon
Left the path that led you to me

And the war has built an armour around my tearful heart
Don't worry, my princess, don't cry
My body is yours again like it was right at the start
Together we can take the wheel and take this ship to the sky

Johanna, don't suffer anymore
Clear your tears to my bourbon tissue
Put your hands on my chest and see how light it is
It was hell, Johanna, to miss you.

And the war has built an armour around my tearful heart
Don't worry, my princess, don't cry
My body is yours again like it was right at the start
Together we can take the wheel and take this ship to the sky

And the war has built an armour around my tearful heart
Don't worry, my princess, don't cry
My body is yours again like it was right at the start
Together we can take the wheel and take this ship to the sky
Track Name: Tartarus
Hey!

Dwarves and giants of stone age
Mean and ugly beasts
Creatures of our deep Tartarus
Tormenting the peace in my eyes
Don't step the grass of my yard
Don't crush the skulls with your hands
Permanent demons hunting decisions
Messing with my shame

Hey!

There's and old and rusty trunk
In my grandfather's house
Holding tightly the little me's
Without even a small gap
And I feel stuck like a prisioner
In the dungeons of my little castle
Praying daily to the Lord
To come and take my hand!

Seconds of stomach explosion
Breeze of cold and nipping ice
Feelings of love for the past
"You have nothing to fear!"

'Cos life is more than your criminal record
You need to learn how to kill the cyclope
Running away won't make the difference
Embrace the giant in you

Drink more champagne
Clear the dust of the photo album
Laugh and mock with yourself
Breath the air of the Dark Valley!

Drink more champagne
Clear the dust of the photo album
Laugh and mock with yourself
Breath the air of the Dark Valley!
Track Name: Chasing The Dawn
Reaching the end of the road
I still haven't found why she departed
It's not like everyone told me,
I couldn't solve all the wars I've started.

My dear love, my dear friend,
Do you remember those days at the park?
Every sound was so wonderful and smooth
And now I'm just lost in the dark.

Bring the light back to me, bring it all over again.
Let your sweetest voice cover this incomplete man.
I know it was late when I learned to trust.
Be pacient, my darling, don't turn me to dust.

I've passed through some oceans and mountains
Hoping to find you somewhere out there.
Even the stumbles and falls of this lonely road
Couldn't keep me from seeing your blonde hair.

My dear love, my dear friend,
Do you remember those days at the lake?
Your smile could drive me so speechless.
I want you, I am ready to awake!

Bring the light back to me, bring it all over again.
Let your sweetest voice cover this incomplete man.
I know it was late when I learned to trust.
Be pacient, my darling, don't turn me to dust.

Years have passed since she's been gone,
A thousand miles fulfill my feet.
I can see the light of the coming dawn!
I came too far to just declare defeat!

Bring the light back to me, bring it all over again.
Let your sweetest voice cover this incomplete man.
My faith will tear your Ivory tower down
And I will return you that old and rusty crown.
Track Name: Time To Grow
I'm jealous of seeing those kids at the street
With their bycicle and baloons.
Some can't even get up on their feet.
Well, I'm leaving this small world soon.

An hundred miles I have to run,
So many things I've left undone.

Turn on the light, please let me in
Oh, my glory days were about to begin
The future is here, so close to the start
I'm already jumping to the hardest part

There's a life in front of me
As the grown up I wanted do be.
It's now that I see, all my sweet dreams are gone.
It's time to move on and restart.

An uniform I have to use,
Suitcase, a nice tie and transport to choose.

Turn on the light, please let me in
Oh, my glory days were about to begin
The future is here, so close to the start
I'm already jumping to the hardest part

Oh, I know
That the time has run.
And now I'm here all alone.

Oh, I know
That the moment is now.
It's time to grow.
Track Name: The Storyteller
He told his first story in the park
All the bad boys have made him fall apart
He spoke about his bravery
And he found some comfort there.

And who can this man be?
He's burning all his memories
He found that every single life
Is all you want it to be

The storyteller
With his voice that can't deny
The storyteller
With a life full of greatness and wine
The storyteller
Nothing seems more perfect than lie
The storyteller
Let him do what he does best in life.

He sang his last story to the sky
The adventures of how he learned to fly
He spoke about his greatness
And he found some comfort there

Because tales aren't about life
But your life can be a tale
It's all about what men want
Except it's very own end

If it's one of those times
When all the things are wrong
He must solve all the crimes
To be a part of the song

The storyteller
He's a nervous little boy
The storyteller
Only tails can give him joy
The storyteller
Nothing seems more perfect than lie
The storyteller
Let him be happy in this life
