Track Name: the hardest part
i'm a rascal, i'm a thief, my favourite price is free
i'm a son of the road cause to me she can feel like home
like a freebird, flyin' high at the sickles of the river
like a shotgun to your heart to pull the trigger is the hardest part

packed my things a couple times
but i always come back and i down't know why
there's nobody when i look around
when i fall down to the ground

hey hey hey nobody knows who you really are

i'm a dreamer at this game
start with pair of aces everyday
i'm a gambler and i'm proud
i take the bet til the final countdown

i don't believe in politicians
i don't need their propositions
like a shotgun to your heart
to pull the trigger is the hardest part
Track Name: colorado springs
someday i`ll be going somewhere
where i'll never feel alone
if they set me free on sunday
to the valley of the gods

trough the arizona desert
amarillo, cadillac ranch
rest my mind at the death valley
in las vegas i'll throw dice

son honey don't you wait?
i'm going back again
to colorado springs
where nothing can bring me down

left the town and killed my cell phone
got me one way ticket
smoked a joint with dean moriarty
now we're going all down hill

man i've broke a lot of promises
but for sure i'm not breaking this one
with the sunset in the way
now we're heading to l.a.
Track Name: red park
here comes the morning light
once again
we're standing hand in hand
and it feels so fine
even if it's just for a while
to be here by your side

rough times are on our ways
what to say about our fate
we are waiting on the things to come
tonight i'm hangin' out on red park

hey darlin' you might wanna come, i'm hangin' out on red park
and we'll be singin' an old-time song, i'm hangin' out on...
hangin' out on...

sitting on this bench
the whole night trough
seeing heroes falling down
and for about ten bucks
a bottle of rum
the night has just begun

ain't got a job, nothing to do
but we're still young, there's nothing to lose
tomorrow will be just another day
till then i'm hangin out on red park

and nobody knows
if this times will change
it's gonna be rough
but hey we're not afraid
cause better times will come again

i'm hangin out on red park
Track Name: city skyline
shoes are hangin' on a wire
and every second day of may streets were on fire
police cars going up and down the street
broken glass under my feet

everybody's shakin' downtown
sweatin' and dancing to some rock n roll
the major of the city he don't likes guitars
so he don't wants to hear 'em at the night time bars

my city skyline
feels so bright on a big blue sky
as i see the rising sun
i start to get the feeling everything is done

fresh newspapers on a cold sidewalk
loversellers put on their coats
the theaters now don't sold out
at the frentic street of gran vía

a new kind of silence is born
down at the streets that you don't walk alone
you can see Mr Jokeman's face
searching for a new charming place

tell this thief that we're going homeless
nothing around for us here
Track Name: fix
lean on me my lonely gal
i'm the one
to fix your heart tonight

close your eyes and go to sleep
tomorrow
the pain, it will be gone

i've been waiting, waiting
for you to be allright
everybody's waiting outside
for you to come along and left the blues behind

steal my vinyls and cd's
listen to Da
singing brilliant disguise

when the morning comes
i'll sing for you
tangled up in blue

i've been waiting, waiting
for you to be allright
everybody's waiting outside
for you to come along and left the blues behind
Track Name: tomorrow
i don't wanna talk about tomorrow
it's not time to talk about that
i don't wanna think about my sorrow
it's not time to think about that

and all my problems
they'll never fly away from me
and all this trouble
has always been under my skin yeah

i don't wanna walk under the sun
it's too hot for my cold thoughts
i just wanna have a new distraction
maybe something new can make my reaction

but in the end i'm feelin lonesome
oh i can't face some things i see around
i lie myself
cause i can't stand
oh i just wanna give up and get on the road

maybe tomorrow, i will be out of here
Track Name: a different way
these are the echoes that come from our past
beautiful madness forever will last
passin hours and passing days
comes the future and here they'll stay

blind trust common goals
a new horizon for a new open road
decisions came, changes were made
the time has come to repeat it again
with this feelings they cannot trade

and when it all
comes to dust
dry your tears and start to walk
the rest will be
forever stuck

forever stuck in your memory

these are the echoes that come from our past
Track Name: strugglin'
strugglin' for stability
this is not what it was supposed to be
it used to be so easy
but now the times have changed

it's in the air
in the air right now
it's in the air
and i still don't know how
how are we gonna do this
how are gonna make it last

an interrogation
printed in this nation
media steals the voices
start making your own choices

it's in the air
in the air right now
it's in the air
and i still don't know how

so how are we gonna make it last?
Track Name: mountains
with your coat all wet
tryin to complain
what's going on at you own hometown

standing in the cold
waiting for them to come
there's a promess that you made
are you sure you're not gonna tell

the future looks so bright for you little man
but you gotta understand the truth

the tower clock says
that is half past three
if you point the mountains you will see

there's food for a couple of days
and you only have to wait
you have your little bones to pass the time
when it's over it will be allright

the future looks so bright for you little man
but you gotta understand the truth
Track Name: sooner or later
once again
there's no time to reconsiderate
assume our big mistakes
we're fucking up this big old place

pretend
nothing really happenns all is well
big surprise
when you look around and realize

there's no turning back now damage is done
glaciers melting one by one
and all the green someday will turn to gray
sooner or later will fade away

keep on wasting what we have
always running and running outta time

what a shame
when you try to find someone to blame
it's a script
that was written for us to release
the spark
that you needed to get up and start
river flows
turn the heat up cause I'm feeling cold

will we ever be forgotten
will we ever be the same
will we ever be forgotten
before it gets really late
Track Name: eleven
this goes to eleven!!!
