Nader Naderpour
(poem of the 1st track: The Earth and I)

The Earth and I are two fraught with anger
Silent with rage foaming in our mouth
Our pointless hassle did not end but in pain
Our roundabout runs were all wasted in vain.
I am calling to you, you speechless night!
You are dark just like my nightmares and I
Want you to leave me and never come back
Until you light a torch to dress your pitch-black.
I am older than you O night!
I am blinder than you O moon!
Don't you have a flicker of sun stowed
To show me off this tortuous road?
