Track Name: The Penitent
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
Track Name: Sundown Skyline
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
Track Name: At the Bottom of the Barrel
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
Track Name: Three on a match
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
Track Name: Blood Workers
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
Track Name: AFAB
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?
Track Name: Crossed
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.
Track Name: Bodies
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.
Track Name: Bad Vibes Only
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
Track Name: Tired Breath
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
Track Name: Burn the Artisan
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
