The Penitent 04:15
The day is just starting, it never is the same as I recall Tonight I could sleep in hell They won´t put any roses on my grave They´re the ones always trying to pull me under Oh What the hell is going on, nobody got the courage I never lost what I found yeeeee Step by step I go digging in the dark like everyday This could be my last breath I hate these old wet wraps over my face My muscles burn, my future is coming closer Everyone holds the gavel Oh What the hell is going on, nobody got the courage I never lost what I found Oh what the hell, oh what the hell is going on Lights out

OUR SO-CALLED LIFE IS A CIRCLE THE NEEDLE TENDS TO SHAKE DRIVE TILL NEXT STOP KEEPING YOU AWAKE I NEVER EXPECT SOMETHING DIFFERENT I´M STILL WAITING TURN OFF THE RADIO STAY CALM AND KEEP YOUR BREATH IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE CAN YOU KEEP THE STEERING WHEEL STRAIGHT FOR A FEW MINUTES UNTIL YOU GET HOME? RED LIGHTS FLASH, ILLUMINATE MY WAY WHITE BROKEN LINES, GUIDE MY LONELY DAY BEFORE I CLOSE MY EYES... SUNDOWN SKYLINE WHERE IS YOUR DESTINY? THESE TIRES ONLY KNOW WHEN YOU FEEL SO DESPERATE TRY TO ACCELERATE AGAIN ONLY THEN, ONLY THEN YOU FEEL YOURSELF COMING HOME I’VE BEEN OUT THERE MANY TIMES WITH THE TRUTH AND A BUNCH OF LIES STABBING ME IN THE BACK LIFE’S STABBING YOU IN THE BACK AGAIN WHERE IS YOUR DESTINY? THESE TIRES ONLY KNOW WHEN YOU FEEL SO DESPERATE TRY TO ACCELERATE AGAIN ONLY THEN, ONLY THEN YOU FEEL YOURSELF COMING HOME I FEEL MYSELF COMING HOME LIFE’S STABBING ME AGAIN

Hey come to the edge of town Go for what no one seeks out If you ask me What’s the cost? You ask me What’s the point? I told you that’s ok because there´s someone around asking for the show, even everybody told them don´t go to the worst bar in town I don´t care if you don´t understand this I don´t care what you think about it, you get me I don´t care if you don´t understand this Living at the bottom of the barrel You get me I don´t care what you think about I feel alive and well carry on through the day I feel alive and well carrying a heavy weight I´ll be waiting for what won´t come back I´ll be waiting but I won´t change everything I am I don´t care if you don´t understand this I don´t care what you think about it, you get me I don´t care if you don´t understand this Living at the bottom of the barrel, You get me

Point yourself on a map even though you realized that you´re lost And you won´t go back wind blows a lullaby, a familiar voice that I recall from a long time ago from a past life You got a little more time, cause I spend my hours away something terrible is going to happen, something terrible will take place Under the dark night I looked and realized that this will be my last day There´s only one match left, I guess we have to share the flame Fire is my home now, shelther to our cold bones And now you pray, now you send your prayers away

THEY COME ALONG WHEN THE THROATS GET COLD AND MUTE UNMOTIVATED HEARTS THEY COME ALONG WHEN THERE´S ONLY A FREQUENCY THEY NEVER TELL THE TRUTH IS IT WORTHWHILE? NOTHING IS EASY NOW THIS SHIT IS… REALLY DANGEROUS CAN YOU HOLD YOUR BODY? TRY TO HOLD ON, HITS AND BLOWS TRY TO SHAKE A HAND GRENADE THERE´S NO TURNING BACK, WE WILL RISE UP WE DON´T FORGET, NOR FORGIVE IT ALL NO WORDS, NO CHANCE THERE IS NO PRICE FOR THIS HARD WORK, FOR NOTHING JUST PAYMENT TO RESIST THEY COME ALONG WHEN YOU HAVE LOST EVERYTHING AND CLAIM MORE AND MORE UNMOTIVATED HEARTS NOW ARE YOUNGER MINDS WILL SOMEDAY FIGHT BACK FOR OUR PAST MISTAKES CAN YOU HOLD YOUR BODY? TRY TO HOLD ON, HITS AND BLOWS TRY TO SHAKE A HAND GRENADE THERE´S NO TURNING BACK, WE WILL RISE UP WE DON´T FORGET, NOR FORGIVE IT ALL WON’T FORGIVE IT ALL

AFAB 02:59
I have a thousand questions / about this world Sometimes scares me having to live in it Hell is empty now, devil lives right here I´m always too contained to face it and break it out I´m always on my way Always thinking how to take, take it out Tries to drag me closer, If that´s the price, I can´t pay for it Everyone is corrupted (ed), devil lies with them Cut the cord loose I´m always too contained to face it and break it out I´m always on my way Always thinking how to take, take it out I wonder, is this place cursed? I wonder, how can we live in it?

Crossed 03:14
You wanted answers, the ones you told me you were afraid of And I´m long gone, You don´t care where we belong You counted our mistakes and crossed a line You made a list then, our names they stood out But not in gold Make your way, each step we´ll take No one will pull us forwards I´m sorry, I´ve been dreaming for too long to understand what this fuss is all about Sorry, I´m not dreaming anymore Make your way, even if you like the place Even if you have an alibi, put it away Sometimes I feel proud of it, sometimes the world spits on me All my life I´ve been waiting It’s in your soul, that spark that bright up all the dark Just screaming it Just screaming it at his face Time to listen what you say I´m sorry, I´ve been dreaming for too long to understand what this fuss is all about Sorry, I´m not dreaming anymore Make your way, even if you like the place Even if you have an alibi, put it away Can I lose myself thinking of this goddamned place? Oh no, we are your crossed words.

Bodies 02:38
I'M SO SORRY, I DRANK AGAIN LAST NIGHT IF YOUR FORGIVE ME, I WILL NOT FAIL THIS TIME I WILL NOT CLOSE MY EYES TO TURN INTO A DREAM ....OHH NO IF YOU DON'T FIND ME, I´LL BURN THIS FUCKING CITY TONIGHT CAN YOU FEEL IT? KEEP THE FIRE UNTIL DAYLIGHT MAYBE TOMORROW I WONT REMEMBER ANYTHING BUT YOU WILL STILL BE THERE... I LOST MYSELF WHILE SEEING THE LIGHTS OF YOUR ROOM... I POISONED MYSELF BY KISSING THE TATTOOS OF YOUR BODY. I TRY TO TAKE IT OUT THERE IS NO CURE OR REMEDY MAYBE THERE IS NO DOUBT DON´T DESERVE YOU IN MY MEMORY I WILL PLAY THIS SONG TO REMIND ME ONCE AGAIN THAT I WILL NOT LOSE AGAIN I LOST MYSELF WHILE SEEING THE LIGHTS OF YOUR ROOM... UOOO UOOOHHH I POISONED MYSELF BY KISSING THE TATTOOS OF YOUR BODY. KISSING THE TATTOOS OF YOUR BODY.

I woke up this Monday so afraid with tons of questions running through my head she hits me hard, am I bleeding? Get your shit together, Watch the clock hands my fingers slipped and now it´s all starting back give ’em what you got, give ‘em hell Something is going wrong I can´t find the answer, I can hear your laugh from here I´m trying not to be so obvious but you can clearly read “bad vibes only” handwritten on my face Something is going wrong I can´t find the answer, give ’em what you got, give ‘em hell I´m trying not to be so obvious but you can clearly read “bad vibes only” written on my face

Tired Breath 04:44
I CAN’T KEEP PLAYING THIS FUCKING GAME AGAIN I DRIVE STRAIGHT TO A STUPID END THERE´S NO DEFENSE FOR MY EMPTY DEATH I CAN´T, I CAN´T I CAN’T SEE MYSELF TRAPPED IN THIS CAGE CAN’T GAIN I WON’T LEAVE MY CONSCIENCE IN CHAINS IT ALL DEPENDS ON MY TIRED BREATH SEND ME AS FAR AS YOU CAN DON’T COME BACK TO LOOK FOR ME I WON’T BE THE SAME MAN AS BEFORE EVERYTHING I LEARN I JUST FORGET TO NOT REPEAT I WILL NEVER CHANGE, I SWEAR I WILL JUST HURT MYSELF SOONER OR LATER I WILL FORGET EVERYTHING

Have you ever wondered how it is to kill somebody? Burn him and his thoughts Feel the silence left after all Everybody is indifferent Everyone wants to participate Have you ever wondered how it is to kill? Have you ever wondered how it is to kill somebody? Burn him and his thoughts Feel the silence left after all Are there ashes on your shoes? I hope the wind will wash it all away I hope you won´t be the next
