Track Name: The Wheel
THE WHEEL
I woke up with the sun, bright light through the curtains of my house
Ready to face another day of mass consumption
I take my car for a ride making sure that my outfit is looking fine
Because I care who’s out there willing to judge me

Burning money for fun, I don’t mind if it ends up in the trash
Struggling in vain to contain my own corruption
It was never like this, nevermind, it’s the time that we live in
Fooled again, but it’s ok as long as you keep buying shit

But I don’t want it and I don’t need it, media lives inside my mind and I do permit it
things you say you need for you, did you have the right to choose?
I really have no clue, can someone help me to? sure but for a fair price
the wheel keeps spinning round

I’ve spotted a new ad, it is perfect for me so I think I’ll buy
Fooled again! a snitch was there giving instructions
I go to bed late at night, it’s been a long day of wasting money and time
I feel great but in the end it’s my assumption

Manipulation is out there, we have the option to choose
But turning off your device means that you won’t be cool
Because we’re stuck in here hanging from our purse

But I don’t want it and I don’t need it, media lives inside my mind and I do permit it
Things you say you need for you, did you have the right to choose?
I really have no clue, can someone help me to? sure for a fair price
(buy together a new TV, stay forever in insanity)
the wheel keeps spinning round
Track Name: Nothing but Numbers
NOTHING BUT NUMBERS

Sue is not ok, she went through suffering
when years ago she battled cancer
She has no job, three kids to care for
and a mortgage loan that she can’t pay off

The approach is weak, distress meets greed
My hopes become a kind a joke
The fiction is real

She can’t pay the rent for the apartment,
she will hit the streets if nothing happens
Compassion is gone, the price is unfair,
for them we are just nothing but numbers

The approach is weak, distress meets greed
My hopes become a kind a joke
The fiction is real
Track Name: I'm Lost
I’M LOST

Walking through the crowded streets among the people
thinking to myself “is it here where I should be?”
fancy old cars driving down the hills at night.
Going to new places where we’ve never been,
making one-night friends while I pretend to feel
warm and calm when nothing seems alright

We were young and eager to be free
but maybe you were right,
we weren’t prepared enough,
then I did something wrong
and finally you told me
“this feeling is all gone”
So sorry that I’m not the person you once thought,
because honestly I’m lost

All this time I’ve intended to be
messing around trying not think,
smoking all my dreams while I’m turning into dust
Getting into fights when it’s barely midnight,
wandering through the city in this endless dream
when my biggest nightmare is not being you and me

We were young and eager to be free
but maybe you were right,
we weren’t prepared enough,
then I did something wrong
and finally you told me
“this feeling is all gone”
So sorry that I’m not the person you once thought,
because honestly I’m lost

Every now and then I spend some time just thinking,
do you have the feeling that at least we tried?
I guess we will never know while time keeps passing by

We were young and eager to be free
but maybe you were right,
we weren’t prepared enough,
then I did something wrong
and finally you told me
“this feeling is all gone”
So sorry that I’m not the person you once thought,
because honestly I’m lost
Track Name: Intoxicated Society
INTOXICATED SOCIETY

Withstanding over years but not tomorrow,
we’ve been waiting long enough
and those empty promises can’t restore the trust now
It’s never been alright and while we knew it,
educated to close our eyes
hiding ourselves from fighting for equal rights!

Intoxicated society, we’ve been schooled to be
the way they need to keep the status quo along history
Intoxicated society, we don’t need to plead
the air we breathe to all those men
who don’t see beyond their dicks

And now we will be the witch for our tomorrow,
we are not asking anymore,
we will just take back what they stole us the day we were born
But it’s still alright not judging anyone
on what they have between their legs
so join this fight and erase that pain from your chest

Intoxicated society, we’ve been schooled to be
the way they need to keep the status quo along history
Intoxicated society, we don’t need to plead
the air we breathe to all those men
who don’t see beyond their dicks
Intoxicated society, we’ve been schooled to be
the way they need to keep the status quo along history
Intoxicated society, we don’t need to plead
the air we breathe to all those men
who don’t see beyond their dicks

One, two, three! counting holes,
each one of us is getting
what we deserve and singing
“why should I feel ashamed?”
lights are now just facing
our brand new bronzed faces,
so “why should I feel alone?”
Track Name: Parachutes
PARACHUTES

I am laying down in here
nothing is what it seems to be,
sometimes is hard to see the grass beneath your feet
Here comes my question
for the narrow minds
or young kids with a lack of sight,
“how will you live your lives over the next ten years?”
Indifference is not the key

Age is just a number,
an ordinary one,
don’t let it redefine your mind,
in this herd of equals be a different kind
Two steps back did indeed help us
to gain insight instead of going blind
but it turned to be a cliff behind our backs

When everything’s been done
but everything is nothing at all
and now your thoughts are locked,
it has always been like that after all

Nothing seems so wrong
when everyone is gone

We live in contradiction,
big hopes but no ambition,
this way of thinking is not for me
Role models on television
disrupting our decisions,
this country state of mind is clear
Track Name: Double Standard
DOUBLE STANDARD

It’s been sixteen years since you lost your hair,
never faced a trouble, mom was always there,
please get out of your cave, you better grow up
I have known you well since we both first met,
we were so much younger that I did not care,
but things you had in your head
they’ve never made sense
Always trying to sell you’d be a role model
but when it came to show your so-called success
you used to fool us instead by running and hiding

You gotta fix your problems
but also clean your conscience,
sixteen years pretending you are ok
and lying every weekend about yourself
When did this make you believe
that you will turn into a good man today?
Now no one cares!

It’s been sixteen years since you left the nest,
for your money problems, dad is keen to help,
please get out of your cave, you better grow up
One-day friends is your favorite bet,
a race against the clock to raid all you can,
you set the rules of the game: the hunter, the prey

You gotta fix your problems
but also clean your conscience,
sixteen years pretending you are ok
and lying every weekend about yourself
When did this make you believe
that you will turn into a good man today?
Now no one cares!

The burden of your concerns
is clearly affecting our lives,
you’re not like me
Seizing the moment
to spit another lie,
a useless flair

I’ve been right for years,
you’ve really never changed,
the truth is colorless
I believe nothing, I believe nothing is real
Track Name: Solitaire
SOLITAIRE

Every day is like the last resistance,
back and forth, increasing distance
The sons of dust, eternal research

Solitaire

Every day, the constant distress,
the shows are there but the songs are useless
The summer punk brought the fashion fish tank,
the newest cut, the latest instance

You want to kill it and spend some time,
let me see your face
You want to take a proper shot,
let me see your hands
“Let me take a picture”, welcome to the show,
the band is at the photocall

Take me out of this shit, just play and make some hits,
make sure that someone follow us
Who cares about resistance when all we need is here?
Welcome to the senseless dance.
Track Name: Still Makes No Sense
STILL MAKES NO SENSE

I never thought it might be like this when
I wrote that song years ago
Hospitals to breath, a few pills I hate
to pull me out the hole
Endless nights gazing at that picture
of you on my wall,
the "Happiness" poster was laughing at me
while I was stoned

And now, seven months later something's changed
but it doesn’t mean that I’m ok
Choked, when we play I still feel the same,
the pain is there cause’ my mistakes
Dreams of you and me when I’m awake

Even though I know you’re cold enough to
not give me one more chance
If you’d realize I’ve truly changed
so you may change your mind
Even though I know you’re hooked on that girl
and it really hurts
I can’t move on, dumb enough to think
that the magic will be back

And now here I am writing a new song
trying not to drown myself in tears
Then I’m sure you’re gonna listen to it
but anyway you know it’s real
Guess we are not into the same old thing
while those green eyes stare at me
You remember “damn near perfect” right?
Cause logic makes no sense at all
It still makes no sense at all…
