Track Name: True Icons
These icons take my mind to the wreck
filling up the blanks of the evil people that I´m sorrounded with,
another god finds his place and then it's all pain and emptiness again.

Do what you feel inside to make your life worth living.
Night prayers won´t set you free, it´s not that easy.

I´m not afraid of what next life will get me, I´m not living on the run.
I´m the sheep in a wolves feast, stay awake.

Do what you feel inside to make your life worth living.
Night prayers won´t set you free, it´s not that easy.

Hypocrites, your life is complete fake.
Track Name: Benlliure
Last time I saw it, it was a wreck
Many years ago it was all for me
but I can see gold under the ruins
good times are forgotten now

Wherever I go, I bring it back with me
things will never be the same again
Wherever I go, I remember it
Things will never be the same again

But it will not return..not return
The seats are empty now, no one will return
for the next time that will never come, no coming back.

These tickets are memories
the ashes are all that remains
Many years ago it was all for me
but I can see gold under the ruins
the good things don't last forever

For me the doors will never close at Benlliure

Turn off the lights of the cinema
Nothing left to say, just goodbye

Wherever I go, I bring it back with me
things will never be the same again
Wherever I go, I remember it
Things will never be the same again

But it will not return..not return
For me the doors will never close at Benlliure
Track Name: Glory
So close to reach the top, new lines guide my way,
motivations to win.
I even try to fight, keep moving and resist
knockout is the end.

How many reasons do I have to allow it?
Is there a price to lose myself?
The bone breaks, the pride too,
give ground to understand
I exceeded the limit before the glory

The silence of defeat, the sounds of glory

I see the lights so clear,
fast frames run before my eyes and now
I belong to my thoughts and words.

but I can change
all the odds in my favor.
I can change, turn this game around.

How many reasons do I have to allow it?
Is there a price to lose myself?
The bone breaks, the pride too
give ground to understand,
I exceeded the limit before the glory.

The silence of defeat, the sounds of glory.
Track Name: Goner
When she says “everything will be fine”, that is such a relief.
But I feel drowned in these fucking city streets, I need to get away.

Because at this time I´m too tired to pretend, we´re young and we won´t forget.

Wasted at the same downtown bars, like the goner I am.
When the pain is over the hangover strikes back, my dirty old friend.

We´re just dead hearts, walking by the edge.
We´re just dead hearts, goners till´ the end.

I´m going to be honest with myself,
and for the first time the truth will stand.
Screaming my lungs out, I don´t need ´em anymore.

We´re just dead hearts, walking by the edge.
We´re just dead hearts, goners till´ the end.
Track Name: Wolves
I´m going out with the pack tonight, our desires are burning
maybe this time we won´t try to hide from you.

We live far away from you
Maybe not far enough
if you threaten us, we will bite you.

Still await among the flock,
a voice will fire our hearts,
we're not men, we are wolves.

The wolf is coming!, The wolf is coming!

A howl warns you that we will be arriving soon
as clear as a great white moon.

For them we are just beasts, we are not too much
but when we rise up, we´ll be like a fist.

We are the fear that they want to avoid and keep on lurking until the rise of day.

The wolf is coming!, The wolf is coming!
Of course he is, I let him out.
Track Name: Little boy
Life is a collection of memories we keep,
the places and the people that we carry within.
Like that closed cinema in the neighbourhood or the old school, it´s all gone.
The boys you were afraid of, sitting on that bench,
that nerve coming up through your spine, I know how it feels.

So OK, little boy, you're now a grown up man
and today, little boy, you can´t cast this life away.

Some days I feel the vultures circling, circling around me.
I´ll wait for them, to rise up stronger than a fucking hurricane.

Yeah little boy, you're now a grown up man
from today, little boy, the future is up to you.

Some days I feel the vultures circling, circling around me.
I will wait for them, to rise up stronger than a fucking hurricane.
Track Name: All I need
There is no way out, let me try to find out
when I drowned in my doubts but this time
everything is ready to explode
I can´t lose direction, I can not afford it.

Another chance, the day brings misfortune
I hope to get lucky soon
Just hold on to me, It´s all that I need.
Life is so real when it hits so hard
I know, I could choke up on this feeling.

The bottle in my hand, the lump in my throat, nice prescription.

I don´t know if it´s right or wrong,
I don´t care if the rain won't stop.
it´s hard to escape when you are a slave.

Life is so real when it hits so hard
I know, I could choke up on this feeling.

Gimme a reason, just a reason
not to do something crazy, I really want to do it.

There is no way out, let me try to find out
when I drowned in my doubts but this time
everything is ready to explode
I can´t lose direction, I can not afford it
Track Name: Today is the day
There we go again, we´re walking the same streets again.
We´re going to burn this town from the sky to the ground,
today is the day.

If you come down and don´t see us enjoying,
it´s a failure.
If you come back with us and you like where you are
just join us.

This is our place between dejection and walking away
you need to know, this sound will stay long after we're gone.

If you come down and don´t see us enjoying,
it´s a failure.
If you come back with us and you like where you are .
just join us

It´s been said that at the end
the brighter things always remain.
Well I doubt about it, but I´ll die trying,
today is the day.

If you come down and don´t see us enjoying,
it´s a failure.
Track Name: Bruises
Let´s make a toast for ourselves and for all the things that we went through,
for the shitty jobs and the long bad days, these things must be remembered.

When you're at the top of your life
Please, take your time and think where you have been.

This river is my guide and it´s the reason to try
to change my thoughts in the night.
Have you ever wondered? How it would be a night like this,
Maybe in another life, in another place.

Let´s make a toast for the mother and the sister who borrow money
that you will spend wisely and for all the things that they deserve.
Broken and down, count all the bruises that you got, Is it what this is all about?
Bruises.

You have lost the way that made you fight so strong.

This river is my guide and it´s the reason to try
to change my thoughts in the night.
Have you ever wondered, How it would be a night like this,
Maybe in another life, in another place.
It´s just a matter of time.
Track Name: Hit & Sunk
The smoke warns the passengers set sail
sea opens its doors to a new destination.
The warm dawn fills our soul we have the control, the day won't be so slow.

They share the pain say goodbye to many dreams and memories
A new world awaits us far between hopes and lies

The sky falls under the silence of the stars,
the wind roams, surrounded by the ocean.

Waves assail us again, the prayers are not heard,
I commit myself to the sea.
Hit & Sunk.
