Track Name: Sink or Swim
SINK OR SWIM
With the pangs / in my stomach
that accompany me
since I was born
I'm trying to find a cure
for my discomfort.
I wish my doctor could
ease this pain
but neither pills
nor special treatment / are needed.

warm is the cure
light of the day that maybe

one day will rise again
melting the thin ice
inside the cold human heart
resigned to the pain

'm fighting for
something good
for a rose
that blooms
in a green field / as every other
life /on the /Earth.

It's something worth fighting for

To build and not to destroy
to unite and not to divide
to walk on the edge
without ever falling.
Only who falls surrenders
and they are the ones
who sink into the abyss.
getting back once you've fallen
it's not easy
it has always been

harder than falling down.
Do you want to sink or to swim?
Track Name: Losing you
I got home late
remember the rain
Falling on that night.
I needed to see
you at the door,
waiting for me.
And all of a sudden
I got suffocated
Under the weight of life.

And By the time I take you for granted,
You’re gone away the sky is so heavy
As long as Im standing here
Trying to find you somewhere

Its been a week now
still I cant believe
How Life can be
(so misleading)


But Someone said to me
We must let go of the life we’ve planned
To accept the one
that is waiting for us
Track Name: Borders and Flags
the wind hits my face
like sharpened blades
my soul is weary with sorrow
it feels like
im running away
but all I wanna do
is finding that place
that makes me feel
that makes me feel
that makes me feel
AT home and safe!

my brain is running in CIRCLES
trying to understand this BEHAVIOUR
why DO you keep on giving me hate?
why DO you keep ON BUILDING UP WALLS?

i've seen so much pain
on the road
so much suffering
i can't explain
only memories remain.
in this cold world
just remember the forgotten
art of love.

one thing is sure
we are all made
equal but
SOME ARE MORE!

my brain is running in CIRCLES
trying to understand this BEHAVIOUR
why you keep on giving me hate?
why you keep ON BUILDING UP WALLS?


seems like life is nothing but
borders and flags!
life is nothing but
borders and flags!
Track Name: Opportunism
You always seek
the cheapest way
you always look

like you don't belong here
you barely know
what respect means

EQUALITY!
STOP THIS PAIN!
IM NOT YOUR SLAVE!

(WILL YOU STOP
LIVING THIS WAY?)

You always mess
with other peoples life
just looking for
your comfort zone
but your conscience
is! not! clear!


how can you - sleep at night?
how can you? how can you?

STOP THIS PAIN!
IM NOT YOUR SLAVE!
(WILL YOU STOP
LIVING THIS WAY?)
Track Name: A thousand words
Try to close your eyes,
take a step back
and BREATHE DEEP
try to think ABOUT images.
As a dog can bite the earth can quake
As a bee can sting
a woman can kill
as bee can sting
a woman can kill

Why are images stronger than words?
Why a drop of blood is more
painful than thousands words?

Despite all of
our fears
focalize and reach the core

behind those walls
with that pointing finger turned on us
and remember that
at least we had the right
to fucking choose

Every action
HAS an effect
LIKE every action
needS a fucking cause.

Why are images stronger than words?
Why a drop of blood is MORE
painful than thousands words
Track Name: Being in pain
They teach you to hate.
From the beginning,
destroying
Our way to respond.

Put in front
of few solutions
raped by / the mechanisms
imposed by the seed
of hatred
hardly able to smile
in a life difficult
to deal with.
I try to enrich


My being in the pain,
humbly looking
for the best
side of it.


They convince us
that we are now
In the middle of
a collapse,
making us
losing hope.
Let’s abandon
the self-destruction,
Let’s free us from
the enslaving depression.

I do not know
how much time is left,
But I choose to live hoping
to leave something
beautiful behind.
Track Name: Only destruction (feat. josh from Tempest)
No future, no hope
For our sons
Only death for little creatures
Behind mankind
Death of beuty
Death of hope
In every day
in every action

burning down the blank pages left to write our history
As the earth is exploited for human greed

Listen the clock is tickin
There is no more a second chance
Its been consumed
Tacitly
The defeat of our hopes
They are Burning for the future
Of the land

What we look on
What we Will paint

Only destruction.
