Track Name: Knot
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
Track Name: Hard Strikes
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!
Track Name: Goddamn Rebels
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
Track Name: Dying Slow
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.
Track Name: Pilgrims
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
Track Name: No man is an Island
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.
Track Name: Deadbeat
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
Track Name: In Good Spirits
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
Track Name: 35 Patriots
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
