Track Name: The Key
Firmly Fossilized in the stagnant bedchamber of the deep
A shell of a mermaid flickered in the twilight zone
The lowest level of the ocean where light can possibly reach

Out of obscurity they came
First circling around
Then zeroing in for a silent kill
Hush Baby Lie still
In the abyss no one can hear you scream
She cried river-fuls
But who can count tears down here?

Tentacles scrambled franticly, upturning every scale
No Prince Eric to the rescue
Not a Disney Fairy Tale
And where’s the One who parted the Red See to make the way?

From above others gazed through a keel made of glass
From their yachts they double-clicked away for that deadly catch
Hoping to net true love with a plastic card
And even if
Love was about a mere touch
Could it be diluted to this cold-hearted grab and smash?
Tell me why
We all get Lost in translation and get hook up on lust


Sea shells sang,
More than others think is wise
More than others think is safe
And the Sea shells sang,
Hope is the key to Freedom
So She unlocked the promise of tomorrow
with the gift of Hope today

In and Out they stole through the shipwreck
Uprooting the dreams she so meticulously stashed
Plundering her spirit, ransacking her body
Pillaging the already fractured heart
Always drifting Out of consciousness as a way of escape
She imagined Travelling on a unicorn to a Promised Land
But when every waking hour is such a nightmare
It seems there’s only one step to take
No more drama, No more pain
As she wielded a cracked shell to sever her veins
Out of the electric-blue surface plunged a crystal key
Who did it
She knew not at all
It travelled 20.000 leagues down to the bottom of the sea
To unlock her future, to plant that seed
Cause Hope is the key to freedom
Hope makes the forgotten believe



Sea shells sang,
More than others think is wise
More than others think is safe
And the Sea shells sang,
Hope is the key to Freedom
So She unlocked the promise of tomorrow
with the gift of Hope today


As the silver of the full-moon danced tip-toe on the waves
Starfish sluggishly burrowed through the reef
The mermaid mustered all the courage to shed that ball and chain
Not only did she turn the key, she turned over a new leaf
Upwards she swam feebly like half -female, half-broken she was
Upon Piercing the veneer of the ocean with a desperate sigh
Just before she blacked out, she gravely sang her heart out
Is the King alive?
She cried “Is the King Alive?”
There he was in all his eternal splendour, the greatest fisher of men
The king stepped out of the boat graciously
and grabbed his lost daughter by hand



Sea shells sang
More than others think is wise
More than others think is safe
And the Sea shells sang,
Hope is the key to Freedom
So She unlocked the promise of tomorrow
with the gift of Hope today
