 Lyrics

Moje ime je Lea Sirk in za vas imam nov lik
Lik nasmeha in svobode kot najbolj virutualen trik
En korak do zmage
En korak do luchi
Do popolnosti

Borim se z nasmehom do sonca, borim se za ljudi
Pot do resnice, me zaslepi
Ljubezen tista pvra pride, da preslepi
Jaz pa si vzamem, kar telo osvobodi

Ne verjemi v vse, kar ponujeno ti je
Misli na glas in upaj
Da skrivnost je tem, na prodajaj se vsem
To je najbolj passe
hvala, ne, ne!

Hvala, ne!
Hvala, ne, ne!
Hvala, hvala, ne!

Milijon ljudi je že reklo, da nas prevech živi
Tistih, ki so nesrechni in brez luchi
En nasmeh za srecho
En nasmeh za ljudi
Za tiste polne skrbi

Svoje duše ne dam nikomur, držim jo za sé
Prava umetnost, brez-brez cene
Vsak odgovor je v meni, najdem ga kadar zaspim
Ko telo je sprošcheno, predano za vse

Ne verjemi v vse, kar ponujeno ti je
Misli na glas in upaj
Da skrivnost je tem, na prodajaj se vsem
To je najbolj passe

Ne verjemi v vse, kar ponujeno ti je
Misli na glas in upaj
Da skrivnost je tem, na prodajaj se vsem
To je najbolj passe

Hvala, ne, ne!

Hvala, ne!
Hvala, ne, ne!
Hvala, hvala, ne!

Kot lutka za ljudi
Ki se skrivajo za maskami
Enaki, popolni, a nezadovoljni
Hvala, ne, ne, ne!

Ne verjemi v vse, kar ponujeno ti je
Misli na glas in upaj
Da skrivnost je tem, na prodajaj se vsem
To je najbolj passe
hvala, ne, ne!

Hvala, ne!
Hvala, ne, ne!
Hvala, hvala, ne!
