Knot 02:49
IS A DIRTY GAME THAT TRYING RECLAIM YOUR LAST STRENGTH DON'T FORGET ANYMORE THIS ETERNAL SORE BUT I ALWAYS WANT MORE WHEN THINGS ARE BURIED IN THE MUD TIME JUST DRAGS THEM DEEPER WE WAIT FOR STORMS TO DIG UP FIND OUT WHAT IS MISSING I PULLED THE TRIGGER TONIGHT I BELONG TO THIS SIDE THIS GUN IS LOADED BY FEAR IT´S A THIN LINE LINE OF MY LIFE AS THE ROPE IN MY NECK WHEN THINGS ARE BURIED IN THE MUD TIME JUST DRAGS THEM DEEPER WE WAIT FOR STORMS TO DIG UP FIND OUT WHAT IS MISSING

Hard Strikes 03:29
LOOKING FOR A STRANGER, I FEAR NO DANGER LOST BUT ALWAYS PROUD ALL I MAKE IS BAD DECISIONS, MY HEAD’S A FUCKING PRISON WHAT IS THIS ABOUT? NOW HEAR THIS, MY RAGE INSIDE VOCAL CORDS ARE GOING TO EXPLODE I HOPE THIS TIME, YOU WILL DRAG YOUR LIES AS FALSE AS YOUR CRIES AND PUT YOUR PRICE HIGHER THIS LINE, SPLITTING YOU AND I IT SEPARATES US LIKE EARTH AND SKY. CAN I EXPECT FORGIVENESS? NO! THE TRUTH IS HARD TO TAKE I KNOW LOOKING FOR A STRANGER NOW BUT IN THE END - I'M ALL ALONE MADNESS WITH ME BUT I KNOW I WON’T DO ANYTHING NOT SCARED, I’VE ALWAYS BEEN THIS WAY I’LL ALWAYS BE SO HATED I HOPE THIS TIME, YOU WILL DRAG YOUR LIES AS FALSE AS YOUR CRIES AND PUT YOUR PRICE HIGHER THIS LINE, SPLITTING YOU AND I IT SEPARATES US LIKE EARTH AND SKY. GO AWAY FROM ME!

I´m the lowest, I´m the weakest But everyone knows that I´m not a cheater Not a single truth I´ll say from today Once I spat a knife out of my mouth It went straight to your neck But I missed that one again Oh boy the things that you´ve done Were a fucking shame, such a fucking shame The TV spits what everyone seems to enjoy Working all the day to end up dreaming My grandpa says “companies have no guts” they are not your friends, they are not your fucking friends We are in this alone Never trust a goddamn rebel

Dying Slow 03:48
HOW LONG SINCE YOU DON'T, LOOK AT THIS SIDE OF THE STREET? WHILE THE NIGHTS BRING THE COLD, I WILL NEVER CROSS THAT BRIDGE. ALMOST ALL THE TRUTH WILL DIE WITH ME, WHO I WAS BUT NOT WHO I AM. IS THIS THE END? NO FUTURE I CAN´T DEPEND ON, LET ME GO KEEP THE FLAME, REMOVING MY OWN NAME, DYING SLOW. SOMETIMES I THINK THAT THESE OLD HANDS DO NOT DESERVE ANY BREAD OR ANY OTHER FRIEND AND THIS SILENCE BRINGS ME TO DEATH THE DESIRE TO SURVIVE, ONE MORE NIGHT SO HERE I STAND STILL ALIVE, ONE MORE NIGHT ONE BREATH, DYING SLOW. IS THIS THE END? NO FUTURE I CAN´T DEPEND ON, LET ME GO KEEP THE FLAME, REMOVING MY OWN NAME, DYING SLOW. NO FUTURE I CAN´T DEPEND ON REMOVING MY OWN NAME.

Pilgrims 03:05
WE ONLY RUN GUIDED BY A SINGLE ROAD IN THIS OLD VAN IT`S A GREAT HOME, FOUR WHEELS AND ACHING THROATS WHISKEY IS THE PLAN TRYING TO FIND A GOOD DIRECTION ANYWAY LOOKING FOR A GOOD PLACE, BUT NOT TO STAY STEP BY STEP IS THE SOLUTION FOR PILGRIMS MAYBE IF I CANNOT SEE IT, THERE IS NO END. DONT TURN AROUND WHEN A PROBLEM COMES ALONG AIN'T NO EASY WAY THE SOLUTION WILL KEEP US TOGETHER THROUGH THE DAY. WALK THIS WAY IS NOT A SHAME I CAN´T STOP THIS, IT MAKES ME WEAKER TRYING TO FIND A GOOD DIRECTION ANYWAY LOOKING FOR A GOOD PLACE, BUT NOT TO STAY STEP BY STEP IS THE SOLUTION FOR PILGRIMS MAYBE IF I CANNOT SEE IT, THERE IS NO END. WALK THIS WAY IS NOT A SHAME I CAN´T STOP THIS, IT MAKES ME WEAKER

No man is an island entire of itself every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.

Deadbeat 03:07
I feel so excited now, I swear we´re not divided solid as a rock against the odds, through the shitstorm Tired of this long walk Count hours so I can scape frustrated Count the miles to keep you away Alone at the sea, a pile of bodies as my ship keep pressuring still, end the bleeding or let me sink Is the booze talking when I curse your name against the odds, through the shitstorm Tired of this long walk I´m tired the long walk Count hours so I can scape frustrated Count the miles to keep you away Alone at the sea, a pile of bodies as my ship keep pressuring still, end the bleeding or let me sink

Sometimes it feels everything is lost pitch black hole thoughts after the midnight, sky´s brighter than before In good spirits I go Exactly the same song plays in my head all along Happy days are over, let the blues stay at home today Cheer up that heavy heart, Mental breakdown, I´ve reached my limit/the end Empty bottles and dirty smoky rooms Nobody trust me when I´m drunk When a word is everything when a look is everything Born with mistakes, that kill me and sometimes push me away from the things I love, the things I hate the most Exactly the same song plays in my head all along Happy days are over, let the blues stay at home today

35 Patriots 03:20
I COUNT THE REASONS WHY I SHOULD STAY AND THEN I REALIZE I WANNA WATCH YOU DIE, LOOKING INTO YOUR EYES MOTHERFUCKER I TOLD YOU SO AND YOU GOT ME WAITING I´VE GOT YOUR ADDRESS INKED , SO BETTER WATCH YOURSELF 35 PATRIOTS, 35 PATRIOTS, 35 PATRIOTS, 35 PATRIOTS MY EYES ARE WIDE AWAKE, I DON´T MISS A THING, NO SIR AIN´T GOT NO ROOM FOR SUTIL WORDS, NOT TODAY WHAT YOU DESERVE,WHAT YOU DESERVE IS ON THE WAY WHAT YOU DESERVE, WHAT YOU DESERVE IT´S A DISGRACEFUL BLOODY END
