Track Name: The Great Depression
THE GREAT DEPRESSION

I have poison inside, I live with venom inside
I’m not a snake, I’m just a horse you can’t ride
I am a viper, I am a sniper
You are just a goddam loser, motherfucker!

Untie that rope ‘round your neck, unveil hope… 1,2, check!
This is your very last goodbye, it’s your choice, no reason why
Pride blinds you, but for what? Brothers in arms, a past you forgot
With or without us I hope you feel well
The web that you build, the pit where you fell.

You’re so great… a great depression.

Decay…release…betray
A hundred dues you didn’t pay
A thousand words you forgot to say
Hey baby, good luck on your way.
( Half-man, you’re your own prey )
( Hey player, you burn your own way )

I have poison inside, I live with venom inside.

Play games, you lose, what a shame, we never played but won this game
While you’re talking, silence is nice. Act like a man, that’s my advice.
Truth is true, it’s crystal clear. Each lie you say reveals your fears.
With or without us I hope you are fine
Threats and denials but this ecstasy’s mine.

…we love you anyway…
Track Name: I Am Free
I AM FREE

Where there are ashes you may find fire
Where there is a fence you may find the wire
Where there is truth you will find a liar, aw yeah
Are you a foe or a friend? Come on, take my hand
We will be free ‘til the very end

If god exists I think he’s sleeping
Each time I’m awake I think he’s dreaming
So why the hell am I praying for? Oh no.
Are you sand or dust? Greed or lust?
Freedom is pure, naked, no crust.

I am free and I hope I will ever see you again…

If you found Jesus you will find the cross
If there is a servant, you will find his boss
For each victory there is also a loss, that’s right
If you’re in a ship, you will find a shark
If there is a moon it will be dark

If you have a bullet, let me lend you my gun
If you’re still sad let me show you some fun
‘Cause maybe we don’t fit under the same sun, hell no!
Are you a rock or a stone? A nail or a bone?
We could be free on our own.

I am free and I hope I will ever see you again…

10 years passed, same shit, different day
But everything stays the same, We’re all free…

I am free and I hope I will ever see you again…
Track Name: Times Of Drought
TIMES OF DROUGHT

I’d rather tear down with love than build with hatred
We made the revolution with petals on our hands
No blood was lost and freedom found its end
Some folks long for a bright future as other remember the past
The youth is getting old, will hope ever last?

We built a new order, we had our say
Freedom of speech? I think we’re drifting away
The new world is close and we’re opening our doors
Our beliefs are dead, plain as a rotten sore

I’ve got no more patience, It makes no sense when I rhyme
(will the bell ever start to chime?)
I’m no longer patient, I’ve wasted so much precious time

In times of flood the water reigns
In times of drought it never rains

Who will educate our children? Who will feed’em later?
Who will take care of my early projects? The raper? The hater?
Who will carry my legacy? Wake me up from this nightmare.
Every time I dream I just want to be there.

You killed us twice…

The music plays on, the light’s still on while we’re off second after minute after hour after year.
A common face with a familiar smile, we vote, we support, we walk another mile.
2007 – there’s a hell, not a heaven. There’s a war and the Nobel goes to Al Gore.
The holocaust, there was a jew and there was Hitler.
There was Sendler but the list we know is of Schindler.

You killed us twice… but we’re still standing !!
Track Name: 'Til Death Set Us Apart
'TIL DEATH SET US APART

So many words, so different ways
We're living in shit... just different days
No reason to hurt or to descriminate no more...
Blades and swords for those who play
We're living in slavery... at least that’s what you say
My blood is red, don’t feel hate anymore...

And the way you walk, and the way you talk
Outrageous...contagious...
And the way you move, and the way you try to prove…

I'm gonna use you 'til death set us apart
I'll take everything with me... to set you free...
'Til death set us apart… I'll take everyone with me...

No fingerprints nor evidences
No reasons, only moral violence
Not always must a sheep follow his own sheppard...
The rain is wet, the sun is dry
But both together own the sky
If you believe in miracles, you‘re just another lie...

I'm gonna use you 'til death set us apart
I'll take everything with me... to set you free...
'Til death set us apart… I'll take everyone with me...

Some words you say they make me ill
The games you play - FUCK THEM - they make me feel
Like I have something related to you
This time I’ll turn my back and I’ll do what I have to do.

I'm not gonna use you 'til death set us apart
Now take everything with you... to set you free...
'Til death set us apart… Now take everyone with you...

I’m gonna use you, I’m not gonna use you
Not even death will set us apart…

Some try to run with nowhere to hide
Some try to swim and sail but then lose their tides
You think - Some things are real as they come closer
That’s when you think you’ve won, but you’re still a loser!

EVEN THE MOST PEACEFUL MAN
SOMETIMES HAS TO KILL
BUT I NEVER DID AND NEVER WILL !!
Track Name: Alien
ALIEN

There ain’t nothing worse than a point of no return
There ain’t nothing worse than water starting to burn
There ain’t nothing worse than loving without pain
There ain’t nothing worse when it’s all over
Well it‘s game over, baby!

So hard I’ve cried to open your fucking eyes
In vain you tried to force me with your lies
Now I find myself in doubts and nothing to complain
Blackmails and stabs on my back…
Fuck you! You’re so lame, you’re so lame!

Can’t you take my hand?
I’m not the alien in this land.
Can’t you follow me?
All these dreams show how strong hope can be.
I can’t take your hand
You are the alien in this land.
Can’t you just fucking see?

Clouds are dark, sky’s grey
My life seems like a hunt where I am the prey
Sea’s angry, earth’s sick
I wanted to find my shelter but all I found was myself so weak…

Can’t you take my hand?
I’m not the alien in this land.
Can’t you follow me?
All these dreams show how strong hope can be.
I won’t take your hand (3x)
I WON’T TAKE YOUR HAND !!

Clouds dark, sky’s grey
My life seems like a hunt where I am the fucking prey
Sea’s angry, earth’s sick
I wanted to find my shelter but all I found was myself so weak…

Nothing’s better than a scream of love
Nothing’s better than the purest sigh
Nothing’s better than the sky above
IS THIS OUR TIME TO DIE?

Nothing’s better than a scream of love
Nothing’s better than the purest sigh
Nothing’s better than the sky above
THIS IS OUR TIME TO DIE!
Track Name: Fragile
FRAGILE

{ the witness }
The sun is crying, not shining no more
It feels like dying faster than before
The candle ain’t burning and won’t burn anymore
Is this why we’re living? How will we score?

A stab in the heart, i’ve got no more time
It was meant from the start that you would commit that crime
How can you be so cruel? How can you be yourself?
How can you decide the end of someone else’s life?

{ the victim }
SO INNOCENT… SO FRAGILE
I COULD HAVE BEEN A WOMAN BUT I DIED A CHILD
SO PURE… SO STRONG
I COULD HAVE BEEN A WOMAN BUT I DIED A CHILD

{ the guilty }
I made what I was meant to do
I’m sick of kids playin’round like fools
I have the power on my hands and I’ll use it once again
Let me bring you to pain, let me taste you - insane!

{ the witness }
Have you ever been a child? Were you born already old?
I’ll make justice by my hands. Another story untold.
Her body was a temple, her mind is now a prison
You’re low…the lowest of the low…a treason with no reason.

{ the victim }
SO INNOCENT… SO FRAGILE
I COULD HAVE BEEN A WOMAN BUT I DIED A CHILD
SO PURE… SO STRONG
I COULD HAVE BEEN A WOMAN BUT I DIED A CHILD

SO LONELY… SO DESPISED
SO FORGOTTEN… SO DENIED
Track Name: The Calm Before The Storm
THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM


Pt. I : The Arrival

A man is just a loaded machine gun
Ready to shoot, ready to kill
He lives his life with no compassion
While he watches himself goin’ down the drain.

If live gives you peace, why ask for war?
Don’t take nothing for granted
Things may seem near but they’re so far away
You can’t tame that wild river…

Down the drain - Life’s no game
Down the drain - Life means pain

Don’t quit now and you’lll win it all
Don’t look down and you’ll have it all

Down the drain - Life’s no game
Down the drain - (but) Not in vain…



Pt. II : The Departure

Hey buddy... I'm writing to you once again
You may call it fate but let me introduce you my game
This is the last day you will hear about me
Tomorrow I'm gone, my seeds won't lead to no tree.

Hey friend... Can you read this last letter?
Pretend that you once cared and I'll feel better
No more you'll bother to have me around
I wanted to be loved… but never… I was never found.

(Goodbye) - I'm fine
(Today) - I won't pray
I gotta go back to the day I was something
I gotta go back, I gotta go back...

I can't - (pretend)
I won't - (be afraid)
I gotta go back to the day I was something
I gotta go back, I gotta go back...




Hey girl... What about that night you were gone?
So sad … You left me hanging alone by the phone.
A joke … What I felt for you was so fucking true
A lie … You're senseless and heartless, so fuck you!

Ch:
(Goodbye) - I'm fine
(Today) - I won't pray
I gotta go back to the day I was something
I gotta go back, I gotta go back...

I can't - (pretend)
I won't - (be afraid)
I gotta go back to the day I was something
I gotta go back, I gotta go back...

A pen & a gun, my two and true fantasies...



Pt. III : The Return

Hey brother...
Why did you reject me most of the time?
You‘ve been hating me…
But I am not guilty of any crime

This life is a hell lost in the fire
A flame so high burned all my desires
…as I got trapped in life’s hardest barbed wire.

Hey you…
That always blamed me for who I am
Read my lips…
I’d rather be different than one of them…

I’m dead… will you ever give a fuck?
Goodbye… I’ve freed from the cage where once I was stuck…
…and now I’ll sleep… now that I’m gone…



Pt. IV : The Redemption

Down the drain - We’re all the same
Down the drain - (but) Not in vain…
Track Name: A Morte
A MORTE

Prelude:
One more day, one more frustration
All lights are off, I can’t feel my knees
I can’t feel anything at all, it’s sad
But I’m used to it. Do I deserve all of this?
Do I have feelings? I just wanna wake up…
Do I have a meaning? All I want is to wake up
No one can see me, not even feel me
My blood is no longer running… it has stopped!

Verse:
Take my hand, my land, my advice
This is my game, my freedom, my vice
This is the only life i know
I was never a king, but this is my throne.
I am sleeping and I just can’t wake
My eyes are dead and now it’s so late
If there are rules, they were built to break
My mind is gone and so is my faith!

Chorus:
I AM SLOWLY DYING
I AM FADING AWAY
IF YOU DON’T LET ME, I ASK YOU WHY
MY LIFE IS MINE AND I JUST WANNA DIE
MY LAST WISH IS : PLEASE, JUST LEAVE ME ALONE!
(MY LAST WISH IS: PLEASE, JUST GIVE ME A GUN!)

Verse:
Some are dying wanting to live
Some are alive wanting to die
Some go to heaven, route 666
Some go to hell. Private Suite : The SKY!
And there is a man that has full control
And there is a man that has full control
And there is a man that has full control
That man is you - TAKE OVER YOUR FUCKING SOUL!

YOU OWN YOUR SOUL!

Chorus:

Post:
Now that i’m gone through all my sins
Alone in the dark but it seems so clear
I’ve lost my thoughts to save my dreams
Never had a nightmare and that’s why my fear
Is to find myself again
Deep within me
I’m not alive, I can’t pretend
The lights are still off, IS THIS THE END?
Track Name: Newton's Theory
NEWTON’S THEORY

Running away
I am just a little prey, so fine.
Unreal? This feeling.
I’m trying to forget the worst times
Impurity destroys
I try to break the chains and take the blame
I might misunderstand but you’re the one
That own my fate.

Time after time I try to prove you that I am not
The one you think I am
It’s true, I can’t believe the way I met you
I saw your eyes in front of mine
But now your tears became to wine
I drank the poison that burns your face
I never wanted to win this race.

IT DOESN’T MATTER ANYMORE
I FEEL BETTER THAN BEFORE
IT DOESN’T MEAN NOTHING AT ALL

As a rose needs some water
To become so full of red
Tonight all I needed
Was your soul / blood above my bed
As an animal needs some grass
To make our nature complete
I wanted to say ‘I love you’
One more time
But never I will repeat!
Track Name: Quit
QUIT

Why do you keep asking questions
When all I want is only answers?
Why do you keep closing your mind?
Why don’t you say forever goodbye?

Why don’t you take a step back?
Why do you keep on the attack?
Why don’t you take all your scars?
Why don’t you look to the stars?

I AM HERE, YOU ARE THERE
AND I HAVE LOTS OF LOVE TO SHARE
YOU STAY THERE BUT I’LL KEEP HERE
(when I come closer, you disappear…)

I am a person so alone
I always run by my own
I am a person so insane
I never ever looked to the rain…

Why don’t you take a step back?
Why do you keep on the attack?
Why don’t you take all your scars?
Why don’t you look to the stars?

I AM HERE, YOU ARE THERE
AND I HAVE LOTS OF LOVE TO SHARE
YOU STAY THERE BUT I’LL KEEP HERE
(when I come closer, you disappear…)

And now i’ts getting worse
I’m leaving you with no remorse
And now you’re having shame
I never wanted to play this game…!
