The album contains songs in jazz, blues and American Music combined with eastern style music. The songs on the album are as follows:

~ Painted on Water
~ 1000 Faced Man
~ Shut Up and Dance
~ Mad Love
~ Nothing But to Pray
~ Before the Night

Demir Demirkan, the lyricist of the album Painted on Water said on the albums MySpace page“We chose Ebru as the visual counterpoint because you can do it live on stage. When we are playing, there’s a projection from the artist as she’s painting in his tray. It’s spell-binding. Magical. After the artist is done, you have a printed paper, like recording music on a tape." You can also listen to the album by clicking here.
