Track Name: We got the light
We got the light

The world that we have known has really changed for worse,
an apocalyptic hole for our daughters and sons.

But the city is on fire tonight, bridges are burning, we got the light.

We have to terrorize the powerful, they’re damned.
Burn like a million suns, the riots have begun.

But the city is on fire tonight, bridges are burning, we got the light.

My riot is not a pose, I’ll write with my own blood.
And there will be no peace, we’re raised in disbelief.

But the city is on fire tonight, bridges are burning, we got the light.

We got the light.
Track Name: Red Carpet
Once you were told the show must go on but in fact it never had to start.
You gave a lot of credit to this pantomime believing you'd become famous with your band.
"Rock and blow up the speakers!" and drive for hours in the van, it's never enough, never good enough.

Oh, the way you talk and the way you dress and the weirdest band names you can tell,
it's not facing the fact you are going nowhere fast, how relative is success.
If you palm off your audience with an awkward chicanery and a product that is far from good,
the greater it looks, the worst we got fooled.

You lose, this music is not the truth.


Once you were told the show must go on but in fact it never had to start.
You gave a lot of credit to this pantomime believing you'd become famous with your band.
And if music doesn't matter and if image is what counts, then what is what you're trying to say,
just say it again, please say it again.

You lose, this music is not the truth.
Track Name: Phoenix
Phoenix

You build up a giant made of straw and wood,
once you lit the fire all you did was run

So your world burned down to ashes,
but the phoenix is alive.
Everyone is a hypocrite
you bought your alibi.

You made yourself a new suit and crafted a new face,
you started to sell candy to well distracted kids.

So your world burned down to ashes,
but the phoenix is alive.
Everyone is a hypocrite
you bought your alibi.

You lie; you lie.
Every movement is a lie.
Every sound you make: a lie.
Every gesture is a lie,
every word is just a lie, lie, lie.

Now you got a bunch of followers and you preach a new gospel
won’t anybody ever tell you stop lying to yourself.

So your world burned down to ashes, but the phoenix is alive.
Everyone is a hypocrite you bought your alibi.
Track Name: Blind
Blind
I caught myself watching the news another day,
I don’t feel shame and I have no regrets
As I get old, I see the world clearer day by day,
History is turning and our living is boring.

So pick your side, despite clichés and merchandise,
despite the spell of charming neon lights.
So flex your head, open the door to dirty games, we’re imprisoned in so many ways.

Don’t let my eyes go blind.

There’s no debate, Durruti and Chomsky make my day.
So what makes yours? How much you buy and sell…
The unveiled truth awaits inside a crystal cell
You and I can only have a taste.

Don’t let my eyes go blind.

You got it here you know by now Do you want a better tomorrow or a simple stain on your pride?
Track Name: Idle rules
Idle Rules


Directions you take,
the energy you waste
decisions today
mean war tomorrow
dark horizon
So transform your hate
into a positive change
Your trivial success
it’s a selfish business
hollow thinking
nothing but your idle rules to brake.
No poetry for the rambling and the weak,
You’re aimlessly making newer enemies
Do you hate to live against all the voices in your head?
Virtue is just a choice to make.
Just a choice to make.
Directions you take,
the energy you waste
decisions today
mean war tomorrow
dark horizon
nothing but your idle rules to brake.
Track Name: Control
I was searching for the northern star
Through missing towns and unknown paths.
Making up some real plans to hide.

I don’t miss the endless summer nights,
I don’t need your friendship in disguise.
All I want is going out of my mind tonight.

In this town, where everyone is a little freak
I wake up with the smell of kerosene.

I burnt the maps and hit the road,
I made new friends I forgot them all,
I lied to myself and I lied to you, I know.

At the end of this pointless ego trip,
I came up with a simple melody,
I borrowed this guitar to scream tonight,

In this town, where everyone is a little freak
I wake up with the smell of kerosene.

Everyone I know has gone out of control,
something’s got to give,
I found my will to live.
Track Name: Fallen angels
Fallen Angels Light, light I've become a searcher I've been left alone behind, And now I am Preaching in the desert. Time, time I look myself in the mirror In the kingdom where I reign I'm ashamed I'm still breaking in two. If there is just one life, where is my peace of mind? Well, everyone's got fallen angels heal me from the monsters in my mind. Light, light I've become a searcher I've been left alone behind, And now I am preaching in the desert. If there is just one life, where is my peace of mind? Well, everyone's got fallen angels heal me from the monsters in my mind.
Track Name: Burnt land
Burnt Land

It’s not easy to accept
everything we lived just went away.
A long vacation for our souls,
soon to fall into oblivion.

I made it safe and sound,
I haven’t broken down.
It feels like burnt land with everything torn down.
I am alone in town.

In the distance we believe
there’s still time for our teenage dreams.
In the exile, we are free to think:
Fuck our sleeplessness routine.

I made it safe and sound,
I haven’t broken down.
It feels like burnt land with everything torn down.
I am alone in town.
Track Name: Andalosers
Andalosers

Maybe you envy our place in the sun
‘cause you’re always complaining about us
I’ve heard you say we steal and we’re laidback
you wanna give us enough rope to hang.
We’re defeated in so many ways,
you see us triumphant and that makes you scared.
Our philosophy is so out of reach
for people like you, no pleasure, no will.
Who cares if you’re right?
Who cares if you’re wrong?
If you are rotten to the core
with prejudice and lie
you better come alive.
Proud to be bound to lose.
Maybe you envy our place in the sun
‘cause you’re always complaining about us
I’ve heard you say we steal and we’re laidback
you wanna give us enough rope to hang.
Who cares if you’re right?
Who cares if you’re wrong?
If you are rotten to the core
with prejudice and lie
you better come alive.
Proud to be bound to lose.
It don’t matter what we do. Oh, what we do.
It’s too late.
Track Name: Incomplete
Incomplete.

Ten times incomplete,
nothing is turning out the way it's supposed to be.
Dreaming as a kid,
nothing hurts that much as it really does indeed.

You're fading away so young,
and burning out just seems so easy.

Hold on to your pride,
think of your mistakes and rearrange you're life.

In your mind there's always a burden,
all the loads you carry are now mine.
Incomplete, be the one who see a light outside the well you're in.

You're fading away so young,
and burning out just seems so easy.

You're not incomplete.
Track Name: No return
No Return

Listen up, there’s something I want to say,
my mind is tick tack ticking like a timebomb
watching them kiss and embrace.
The IMF, inside the Parliament,
I see them laughing giving it a big hand,
leading us straight to poverty.
Face the war. There’s no return.
Face the war. There’s no return.
Once the Rubicon is crossed
it is time to burn the boats.
Face the war. There’s no return.
In the 40th floor
sitting on the top of the world
they are the architects for the Empire
but I’ve seen higher towers fall.
Track Name: The failure of senses
The failure of senses

I don't know where to begin
it's been a long time since I gave in
I own a house and car
everything is correct.

And I never gave a damn
the wars we faught took place so far
I want security so
I just protect my family.

This is a declaration
of war against humanity,
with the same old leaders,
blending into new alliances.

The failure of senses
with a sense of failure,
we have been an illusion
of a life we never owned,.

Now it's too late to regret
we put too much power in just a few hands,
but I refuse to believe this is the end of history.
We need to know the names of those whose mask is overprotected.
We better recognize
how bad we've been set up.

Maybe you just don't know what it is to give in,
desire of liberty turned into a paycheck,
and a mortgage and locked up to my own things.
And it's real, we forgot our identity,
in the sea of indecision we're just islands
without ships to escape.
