Track Name: mallory's bones
i see the fire in your eyes
as i'm looking at your picture
i see the willing of a man
that’s standing in front of his future

and i never saw a man
that could find the strength in pain
and you’re sweatin’ your way up
with the wishes of your heart

i raised my fist into the mist and disappear
i raised my fist into the mist and disappear
nobody knows and nobody will now i was king of the world
i raised my fist into the mist

and i'll meet you there
where the sky embrances the earth
yes i’ll meet you there
and i’ll bury your heart
and i’ll bury your soul
this mountain is my home
i’ll lay beneath the stones
Track Name: the tree
it’s a heavier breathing
we’re still gasping for air
and the process of believing
necessary and fair

keep on looking for unity
something in common between you and me
and i want to disagree
with the people at the top of the tree

do you believe in this words?
do you believe in this people?
do you believe in their words?
do you believe in a movement?
i don’t really think they do

when your hands and your back
need to carry a loud
we will be by your side
so you don’t go it alone
Track Name: the industry (is a walking corpse to me)
let us roll in fucked up van
without fame or glory to me it’s alright
there’s no need for a huge success
in the seeking for a place

so le the new ones walk on their own
why be scared for the change of the roles?

all of the industry is a walking corpse to me
all of the industry is a walking corpse to me
oh, really can’t you see what is going on in here?
all of the industry smells like a dead body

the advantage is for the other side
as we’re waiting more prohibitions rise
don’t you let them do that don’t stay home
or all the culture values will be gone
Track Name: flashes
i was suspicious in my mind
i shouldn’t believe all those things from the start
when the ship was sinking we were falling apart
but i was the one left behind

circles and stairs everyday
i really don’t know what the like of this cage
with open doors and white clean walls
who will be the next one to fall?

this flashes are all around in my head
this flashes are all around in my head
and i’ll never want to do that again
no i never wanna be back there again

there was a feeling of brotherhood
but there was stabbing and lying too
when it comes to the judgement the sentence is clear
stay on your side or you’ll lose the chair

failed in the search for clarity
instead i runned into vanity
but there’s a lesson to be learned
i can tell by the experience i’ve earned
Track Name: far away
my decisions had a good soundtrack
and i went to bed with no regrets
if the song is good enough to sing
won’t you come out on the street and you’re
hangin’ out on the corner
dying on the street
what are you doing brother?
who are you going to see?

if the impotence had been stronger than me
i’d be drowning in my sleep
and i lost some friends on the way
this life is hard this life is insane
and you’re hangin’ out on the corner
dying on the street
what are you doing buddy?
who are you gonna meet?

broken voices made me change my mind again
i know someday the will try to escape on a runaway train
far away!!

if the impotence had been stronger than me
i’d be drowning in my sleep
and i lost some friends on the way
this life is hard this life is insane
Track Name: citizens
the economist said that they found a way out
they’re solving the problem just taking our money
the politician said that we have to stay calmed
he keeps talking shit but words won’t come out

president said that he’s going away
on a trip for holidays
soon we’ll see him waving goodbye in his fancy official car

ohh the journalist said
ohh the president said
but what about us citizens
while economy is breaking and it’s going insane

the congress men said that there’s a rope
that he can’t see but we can feel the choking
if there’s no solution and it’s hard to explain
tell me where do we stand today

the journalist wrote
some of his thoughts
dropped some bombs on the paper
reality it’s just not enough
he is proud to be a phony!
Track Name: vultures at the table
living in this world
you never know
what you might find out there
political lies
right in front of your eyes
how can they sleep at night

but you trust their shit!!

these days feels like
we’re going back to the errors of the past
yes it does
the errors of the past

vultures at the table
waiting for their meal
and they are on your Tv
demagogic views
neoliberals
they must think they’re superstars
Track Name: the firestorm
your speech
is cheap
and filled with apathy
we stay
away
from all those what you say

you feed, you feed, you feed our souls with fire
they feed, they feed, they feed our souls with fire

as the flame keeps growing stronger
your deceit will stay no longer
someday you will face what you have created
you will face the firestorm

headlines and numbers
synchronized symphony
and the moves in the shadows
the truth is hard to swallow

they feed, they feed, they feed our souls with fire
you feed, you feed, you feed our souls with fire

as the flame keeps growing stronger
the chaos is just around the corner
someday you will face what you have created
you will face the firestorm
Track Name: the airwaves
this place is stumbling
as we try to stay stable
under the broken roof
situation ain’t fair no

it ain’t, it ain’t
it ain’t fair at all, oh no, oh no

it’s coming back again
i heard it through the airwaves
of my stupid radio
it’s the lack of entertaining

the need for a change
the absence of content

there’s bridges that only fall in my imagination
i know it isn’t real
as trust, crushed the floor
i started to walk alone

fallacy got herself a black shoes
now she’s knocking on your door
what her briefcase holds inside
is the kind of things you’re supposed to ignore

they want to ignore
they want to do ignore!!

give us a bigger amplifier!!
throw noise at the liars!!
Track Name: final betray
i made my statements
as i hear the slamming of the door
it ain’t no mystery
that you won’t see me no more
no you, won’t see me no more

the circumstances
have taken a different approach
from the bottom
climb to be back on top
climb to be back on top

so would you get away?
before the final betray
would you get away?

age-won voices
against the new ones
so place your bets now
can we turn the tide?
Track Name: stand up strong
it tries to chase the biggest smile
but it never tried with someone close
i try to complain as i look through the window
and i can’t find the reason why

i stay awake
i’m just staring at the ceiling
i stay awake
i think you don’t deserve this

all those times talkin’ about mountains
i still have that inside
yeah, you taught me how to love them
and respect them at the same time
so i propose that we stand up strong
tonight i, i propose that we stand up strong
Track Name: breath
someone please give us some relief?
this changes are the hardest that we’ve ever seen
in this times of confussion and fear
one of this days we won’t be able to breath

ohh ohh!!

ohh friend, please lend me your hand
somedays i feel like i need some help
when the heat outside
is stronger than the fire
no one dares to give it a try

ohh ohh!!
