Nothing New 04:22
I give my precious moments to you But I couldn't wait to live my life Alone I held my breath, I swallowed the truth Until I found the perfect state of mind To go How can you still feel green and bored? Try to settling up the score In the end you will be coming back for more Don't ask me please Don't thank me for Keep me waiting at your door It reminds me of the time we fell in love It was so long ago I wish that I Could be the one who's always left behind Than be the one deciding to decide I wanted you to follow You never bring me nothing new I am impressed by what you can do But I'm even more impressed by what You don't All of this stress we have been through We can overcome filling our hearts With love How can you still feel green and bored? Try to settling up the score In the end you will be coming back for more Don't ask me please Don't thank me for Keep me waiting at your door It reminds me of the time we fell in love It was so long ago I wish that I Could be the one who's always left behind Than be the one deciding to decide I wanted you to follow You never bring me nothing Don't ask me please Don't thank me for Keep me waiting at your door It reminds me of the time we fell in love But it was so long ago I wish that I Could be the one who's always left behind Than be the one deciding to decide I wanted you to follow I wanted you to follow I wanted you to follow But you never bring me nothing new

And I’m OK I say what I say ‘cause I wanna say it I’m never backing down and give in all the pressure They say NEVER GIVE UP Cut that sentimental crap ‘cause you live for the Money I say what I say when I wanna say it I’ll give you summer teeth and a bag of tomatoes BUT WHY? I won’t tell you why Just remember that in life all comes up with a price And then they go, such (a) joke What do they think? Playing cover songs all night long for a drink Makes me wonder what the hell is going on with you Tell me what you gonna say and tell what you gonna do Our life is a sacred haste If you wanna join in then you better be true Show me what you got don’t show me what you hear What’s your fucking reason for walking away We’re heavy hitters

Left Corner 03:06
One of these days someone told me “you know, you better take off this old red shirt before we go” I wondered where he wanted to get to And suddenly I realized how far we got to forget about love If we think that “I” is what matters most and it’s okay to put it all away, then we are lost, and now We can’t speak up, move it for ourselves Why is it? Why is your goal to fool me? What we gonna have for tomorrow? Are we gonna move forward or we gonna keep fighting here? And what do you expect for tomorrow? Are we gonna have hunger or we gonna find balance here? How can you run away from something? Don’t you realize that’s against all we stood for? You’re acting like if everyone will get ya But all you’re gonna have is a simplified view of what’s going ON! If we think that “US” is what matters most and it’s okay, we’re the same so we can start from now We can speak up, move it for ourselves (we can make it right) Everything we need is right here, so trust me What we gonna have for tomorrow? Are we gonna move forward or we gonna keep fighting here? And what do you expect for tomorrow? Are we gonna have hunger or we gonna find balance here? What we gonna have for tomorrow? Are we gonna have hunger or we gonna find balance here? Forward Balance You know what goes around comes around We gotta move forward We gotta find balance To live for a plain tomorrow

Border Town 02:13
There is something down the border Something that you can’t control So why don’t you let it be Leave this problem If you close your eyes for this matter And realize you can’t control Go and stock your stash instead ‘Cause they’re coming Just let me pack my stuff and say goodbye to here Tripping on the way to leave home Pretending I don’t see the cops outside the street Tripping on the way to leave home Now I’m long gone with no water Can’t survive with sticks and stones Then a drifter comes to me with a story Of a lonely man in the desert Talking with himself all along With his vulture friend ahead Screaming nonsense I should just quit before it tries to attack me Do they even feast on good weed? With all this LSD Just running inside of me Maybe I could try to ride it, oh.

Worm´s Song 02:12
We were doing fine Why the hell did they take you away from this town? You could be with us today I’m sorry that it took so long to write this song But I gave up on trying to write Something better than you deserve You’re frost in time And we’ll be wondering why What was on your mind? We could’ve helped you escape From your mom and your dad You could be with us today If I just knew you were alone I would be there To tell you how much we all love you, my friend Maybe next life... You’re frost in time And we’ll be wondering why I hope you’re better off without this world My dear friend I hope you’re better off without this world But I must say I miss you

We didn’t have much time To figure out how it’s done I know I had the choice Now my chances are gone Walking down in my own thoughts Gave me all the clues Maybe when you stand in line it’s not just only another queue You told once more what you’re living, fighting for That you can count on no one else Whether you can just take it all Even when you ditch your flaws over me I won’t live it on When I was not so strong, you stood and watched me fall And when I stood tall, you were so far from gone You denied it, and fuck what your love is for Carry on as you get only yours, forget it It was so close enough to see Now I live and I wonder What happened those days, will stay up forever You take your step, that’s why you’re looking good You won’t ever get it unless you feel my struggle too Why live in a blur while there’s people all around you Go, just hide yourself and be alone When I was not so strong, you stood and watched me fall And when I stood tall, you were so far from gone You denied it, and fuck what your love is for Carry on as you get only yours, forget it It was so close enough to see Take the wheel we’re going nowhere

She's gonna leave ya She's gonna leave ya She's gonna leave ya She's gonna leave ya She's gonna leave ya Splattered on the ground Knocked out by an ordinary stare And it's almost like she doesn't care Still, you're hoping for the best Well you know, girl (hey, boy) You quite got me nailed But I'm worried it might fail, yeah (Ah, don't be serious) 'Cause you see, all the way That we've come, heading straight Don't be bummed if we steer Away from home, dear I guess I gotta take some time from time to time And I'll be long gone Way before you know it, I've seen it all Again I'm thinking about how you won't Waste a chance to get out, hit it off You know this world has lots of space And though you seem like a fine ball and chain The pain will leave you stranded on me I guess she never really left I can feel you hanging like a shadow I wish I was in Chelmsford anyway, go!

Catching Fog 02:15
If that’s much less Then I don’t want it I think about it every night and day If you just think I will live like you wanna You’re so mistaken, let me tell you again I’ve seen so many better days Then I’ve gotten the impression that my life was ok But I’m running, I’m running, I’m running out of here I can’t comply with all these fucking bullshits of the masses You say forget It’s like you never were my friend You will never reach that strength that you follow I’ve seen so many awful days And I wonder if this life It’s for real such a race But I’m stalling, I’m stalling, I’m stalling all day here The minutes seem so long it’s like I’m drowning on my footsteps You say forget It’s like you never were my friend You will never reach that strength that you follow And I say don’t sweat I never asked for your help You don’t have to be a pain such a downer If that’s much less Then I don’t want it I think about it every now and then But well at least I can say that I’m trying Instead of holding everyone all-day

The Tall One 02:16
All night won't you think of this 'Cause no one buys responsibility I gotta be strong, I know, I know That I gotta be strong, I gotta keep moving on I gave you a thousand better reasons to stay But I think that we're drifting away Gave up my pride and everything you couldn't see Lost the best inside of me And I don't wanna think 'bout this Don't ever trust an asshole Forget about those traitors Hope I never see you again 'Cause I'm coming a little closer to madness (madness!) It's my way out, you get it Stop living it all for you I think the madness brought me closer To what is true I gotta be strong, I know, I know Gotta be strong, gotta keep moving on I gave you a thousand better reasons to stay But I think that we're drifting away Gave up my pride and everything you couldn't see Lost the best inside of me I made up a thousand better reasons to stay But it's best if I go on my way Forget all the bullshit, all the things I couldn't read Find the best inside, the best inside of me

We're coming back, looking for action We're living today, the pictures are on the wall What we have learned is that nothing comes easily For that, we have to stay true to what we are We try to avoid reality Close to the drooling horse is where we gonna take them One by one with the fourteen streak We're heading towards oblivion The pines and heights will tell us That it's pretty rad to live For all we have, we're thankful 'Cause it's always your to give We're bringing back your guts by injection We're willing to stay until the mass spread out We wanna get away and find peace of mind You know, the streets they just feel right That's where we belong We aim to reach insanity Close to the drooling horse is where we gonna take them One by one with the fourteen streak We're heading towards oblivion The pines and heights will tell us That it's pretty rad to live For all we have, we're thankful 'Cause it's always your to give Close to the drooling horse is where we gonna take them One by one with the fourteen streak We're not that far from oblivion The pines and heights will tell us That it's pretty rad to live Even though we might be far Where else we need to be? Where else we need to be? Where else we need to be?

Exactly When 04:00
I wanna know exactly when We ceased to be the band? Have we lost our power to persuade? All of those pictures hanging there Will never pay the rent Bury all your memories today Send your music to the grave I wanna know exactly when We ceased to believe in us? I’m sick and tired of being no one So sick and tired of growing old Yes I’m hoping now for better days But what if those days never come? Jamming with my guitar and friends Will happen once again Throw away your phones Stop hitting play Let your computers do the math Don’t let them lead the path Be the art of your own history We are more than just machines I wanna know exactly when We ceased to believe in us? I’m sick and tired of being no one So sick and tired of growing old Yes I’m hoping now for better days But what if those days never come? I’ll be the one still waiting

The Dream 02:19
When you try to escape but you go into the wrong door And the world as you know seems so far to see Then you stumble to Many blocks and safari dreams, with all these creeps I wonder if it feasts me! When you drag yourself alone into the stairway down Feel a little dizzy cause the air is worn out (Now!) Open up your eyes and see the heaven Or if you look it up you may as well be in hell (hell!) What the hell? I'm on a solo dream, but it seems so far from me Take just one step closer To another point of view Crystal clear just like you knew Cut those chains to follow through To that plain point of view It's like I never dance, but here I am killing the dance floor And the blood is coming up right at my knees Take me away to the bottom of the coldest sea Always wanted to fight creatures down here Oh wait, I'm out without OC (I wonder if it kills me!) Walking down a little place that reminds me of home But all these little men starring me it's so cold (cold!) I wonder if I'm dreaming in heaven Cause suddenly I woke up like a stone-cold (1-2-3 come on!) I'm feeling strange here All these things are so damn new Meeting different planets It's like I'm on the line of mental illness like I tried Wake up from this cold inside And take control That's just a dream I had Nothing you should compliment Take non for example and (Let it die, let it die, until we die!)
