Track Name: Control
CONTROL

I WANTED THE NOISE IN MY HEAD TO STOP
BUT IT GOT LOUDER THAN A BOMB
HALF MY LIFE DOING WHAT I HAVE BEEN TOLD

IT’S ALL I NEED
I’M TAKING BACK CONTROL

THE SUNKEN SHIPS EMERGED WITH THE SHAME
AS ROTTEN AS THE CROSS I BEAR
NOW I’M TAKING TWICE THE AIR IN EVERY BREATH
I FOUGHT WITH EVERY WORD YOU’VE SAID

IT’S ALL I NEED. I’M TAKING BACK CONTROL

“SO DON’T, DON’T BETRAY YOUR BLOOD
DRESS YOURSELF PROPERLY
GO FOR THAT DEGREE
YOUR LIFE IS ALL ABOUT SHAME AND SUCCESS
AND IT MEANT NOTHING TO ME
IT MEANT NOTHING

IT’S ALL I NEED
I’M TAKING BACK CONTROL
Track Name: Light Up The Streets
LIGHT UP THE STREETS

SMASHING EMPTY BOTTLES THIS SOUND FILLS OUR SOULS
DREAMING ABOUT WAVES, WAVES CRUSHING STONES
RUNNING WITH OUR YOUTH HOT ON OUR HEELS

LIGHT UP THE STREETS

RULING FROM THE CURB, WORLD’S DOWN AT OUR FEET
WE CAN’T PROMISE ANYTHING
WE’RE ANGRY GROWN KIDS
THE FASTEST AND THE DIRTIEST
THESE ARE OUR BEATS

LIGHT UP THE STREETS
LIGHT UP THE STREETS TONIGHT

EVERYBODY MOVED UP, AND ON TO GREATER THINGS
SOLITUDE PROVED US RIGHT, THE SPIRIT’S STILL HERE
BUT ALLEYWAYS ARE WIDER NOW
THAN THEY USED TO BE

LIGHT UP THE STREETS
LIGHT UP THE STREETS TONIGHT

LIGHTS TURNED INTO LINES WE’RE GROWING SO FAST
SITTING ALL ALONE, DEVIL IS BY MY SIDE
A ONE MAN TOAST FOR THE ONES THAT HAVE LEFT
ONE LAST TRY TO SUCCEED

LIGHT UP THE STREETS TONIGHT
Track Name: Hang'em High
HANG’EM HIGH

THE BULLETS FLIGHT BUT THIS AIN’T A WAR
THE BLOOD IS SPILLED BUT DON’T CALL IT CARNAGE
ECHOING SOMEWHERE IN MY MIND
WHERE I’M ALWAYS SAD, WHERE I’M DOWN, WHERE I’M BLIND, TIED UP AND SILENCED
THERE’S A VOICE INSIDE MY SKULL
“HANG’EM HIGH WHERE THE WORLD CAN SEE”

DID YOU HEARD MY HOWL? WHAT A WASTE OF ANGER
BUT I’M JUST WAITING FOR A SPARK
A SPARK TO IGNITE IT ALL
A SPARK TO LEVEL OUT THIS GROUND

THERE’S A VOICE INSIDE MY SKULL
HANG’EM HIGH WHERE THE WORLD CAN SEE
OR HANG ME

HANG’EM HIGH WHERE THE WORLD CAN SEE
FUCK THIS WORLD AND STAY WITH ME
IT’S UP TO US WHY CAN’T YOU SEE?
FUCK THIS WORLD AND STAY WITH ME

SHORTSIGHTED BASTARDS, LAUGH OUT LOUD
LET’S CRUSH ALL WE TOOK FOR GRANTED
LET’S FIGHT THE WAR WE ALWAYS WANTED
NOT A SINGLE TEAR, NOT A SINGLE STEP BACKWARDS
AMP THE VOICE INSIDE OUR SKULLS
“HANG’EM HIGH WHERE THE WORLD CAN SEE”
OR HANG ME
Track Name: Manpower
MANPOWER

DO YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW
THE PRICE FOR EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN?
CAN YOU BUY SWEAT AND DREAMS?
PAY TO KNOW, PAY TO LIVE

BUT THERE’S A PRICE TO PAY
YOUR OWN SONS SPITTING IN YOUR FACE
SO LUCKY YOU WON’T SEE THE DAY
WHEN ALL YOUR FRIENDS WILL PISS ON YOUR GRAVE

LOVE AND HATE ARE COMPROMISED
BUT YOU DON’T CARE
YOU PAY FOR SEX AND VIOLENCE
AND YOU THINK THAT IT’S THE SAME
YOU THINK THAT IT’S THE SAME

YOU CAN’T KEEP THIS OCEAN OF KINDNESS
IT’S BURSTING OUT FROM YOUR ROTTEN HEART
DRAW A FAKE SMILE, PAT SOME BACKS
FREE THE DEMONS IT’S FRIDAY NIGHT

THEY WILL HAVE A FIELD TO RUN.
THEIR COURAGE SOAKED IN CHEAP WINE
RAISE YOUR AGED WHISKEY GLASS
YOUR WHOLE LIFE BUILT ON THEIR BACKS

PRIDE AND FAITH ARE COMPROMISED
BUT YOU DON’T CARE
YOU PAY FOR A STATUS AND A PRIEST,
THINKING IT’S THE SAME
YOU THINK IT’S THE SAME

BUT IT’S NOT
IT’S NOT THE FUCKING SAME
YOU STILL NEED MANPOWER
TO PUMP THE BLOOD THROUGH YOUR VEINS
Track Name: Behind These Bars
BEHIND THESE BARS

This song is dedicated to Pablo Ibar and his struggle

WRONG PLACE, ARRESTED
CAGED, FRUSTRATED
LOCKED UP, ISOLATED
TRYING TO BRING MY KNOCKED OUT SOUL TO LIFE

AND I KNOW ALL MY TEARS MEAN NOTHING HERE
IS REAL LIFE WAITING FOR ME?

HERE I STAND BEHIND THESE BARS
I AM THE MISTAKE MADE BY THE MEN PLAYING GODS
HERE I WAIT BEHIND THESE BARS
BUT I KNOW THAT HOLY HEAVEN’S BY MY SIDE

FRAMED UP, AND HATED
A CRACKDOWN, A LETTER
SCAPEGOATS AND SINNERS
CRYING RIVERS WON’T BRING DOWN THIS WALLS

AND I KNOW ALL THE FAULTS I SHOULD PAY FOR
I NEVER DID THE RIGHT THING THOUGHT
BUT I HAVEN’T KILLED A MAN IN MY WHOLE LIFE
THE WEIGHT OF LIES IS
SHATTERING MY SPINE

NO, IT WASN’T ME
NO, HOW CAN’T YOU SEE THAT I CAN’T KILL MY HOPE
FOR TRUTH TO TRIUMPH
AND I WILL NOT STOP MY FIGHT

HERE I STAND BEHIND THESE BARS
WAITING FOR THE DAY I’LL REACH THE BRIGHT BLUE SKY
I WILL BREAK THESE
RUSTY BARS
MY LONELY NIGHTS ARE
CLOSE TO AN END
I WON’T GIVE UP, FOR RIGHTS, FOR LIFE
Track Name: Late Youth Anthem
LATE YOUTH ANTHEM

I’M FADING AWAY , THERE’S A FORCE THAT I CAN’T FEED
NO NEW SEEDS BLOOMING IN MY LIFE

I LOST MY MIND AGAIN
MY GUESS, IT MUST BE STUCKED SOMEWHERE
IN SOME NICE SPOT OF THE TIMELINE

IF GETTING OLD IS MEANT TO BE THIS WAY
WHAT CAN I DO?
WHAT CAN I SAY?

TIRED, BORED AND FIRED
IT FEELS LIKE LIFE HAS PASSED ME BY
AM I A COWARD OR A FIGHTER?

AND EVERYBODY GROWED
TIRED OF ME AND MY DISTASTE
FOR THE ORDINARY LIFESTYLE

IF GETTING OLD IS MEANT TO BE THIS WAY
WHAT CAN I DO? WHAT CAN I SAY?
IT WAS NEVER OUR CHOICE ANYWAY
WHAT CAN I DO? WHAT CAN I SAY?
LIFT THE ANCHOR, SAIL AWAY
Track Name: I'm Sick
I’M SICK

I’M SICK, I AM A MESS
I DON’T NEED YOU TO TELL ME
HOW TO GET WASTED
YOU’RE ACTING WELL, WHAT AN STRESS
DON’T NEED YOUR BLESSING TO ROT ALL ALONE IN HELL

ONCE AGAIN I WAKE UP IN THE COUCH
ALL DRESSED UP AND ALL FUCKED UP
ONCE AGAIN I HAVE TO FACE TODAY
ALONE IN A WORLD GONE MAD

YOUR BLOOD IS COLD YOUR CHEST IS HOLLOW
I DON’T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT TOMORROW
THERE IS NO TIME FOR TEARS OR SORROW
THERE IS NO TIME FOR YOU

I’M DEAD, LAST NIGHT WAS GREAT
AFTER TWO PILLS I’M READY TO START AGAIN
YOU LOOK SO BAD, SO FUCKING SAD
YOU’RE IN YOUR TWENTIES LOOKING OLDER THAN YOUR DAD

ONCE AGAIN I’M HOLDING BACK
TO SPIT THEM ON THEIR FACES. I WANT IT SO BAD
ONCE AGAIN I KICK STARTED THE RAGE
AND I DON’T KNOW HOW TO START

YOUR BLOOD IS COLD YOUR CHEST IS HOLLOW
I DON’T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT TOMORROW
THERE IS NO TIME FOR TEARS OR SORROW
THERE IS NO TIME FOR YOU
I’M SICK
Track Name: Floors And Ceilings
FLOORS AND CEILINGS

I WOULD FOLLOW YOU TO THE
GATES OF HELL YOU KNOW
BUT I CAN’T STAND THIS HELL BURNING UNDER OUR SKIN
AND I’M PARALIZED
BY THE DAYS GOING BY
CAN’T FIND
THE RIGHT THING TO SAY
IT’S A FUCKED UP THING
BUT YOUR LIGHT’S ABOUT TO DARKEN
MY WAY

YOU ASKED ME TO COME ALONG
YOU WANTED US TO
START FROM SCRATCH
BUT YOU KNOW ME WELL ENOUGH TO KNOW THAT YOU’RE ASKING TOO MUCH

AND I WILL NEVER
FORGET YOU
MY HEART WILL NEVER FIND ITS HOME
IT’S A FUCKED UP THING BUT
YOUR LIGHT’S STILL GOING TO SHINE ON

YOUR FLOOR
IS MY CEILING
THE ONE YOU
TOOK AWAY
BRINGING IN
THE STORM
BRINGING IN
THE PAIN
YOUR FLOOR IS
MY CEILING
THE ONE THAT’S
HERE NO MORE
HERE’S WHERE I’M GOING TO STAY, HERE’S WHERE I’M GOING TO FALL

(OH NO) FUCK THE CLOCKS AND THEIR PUNISHING SOUND
HUGS AND SMILES TURNING
EVERYTHING SOUR

AND I’M PARALIZED BY THE DAYS GOING BY
CAN’T FIND THE RIGHT THING TO SAY
IT’S A FUCKED UP THING BUT YOUR LIGHT’S
ABOUT TO DARKEN MY WAY
Track Name: Small
SMALL

ONCE YOU WITNESS THIS SIMPLE FACT
WE’RE MADE TO HURT EACH OTHER
OUR FLESH IS THE COAL THAT FEEDS THE FIRE
WERE ALL OUR SINS ARE BURNING

SO PLEASE DON’T DARE BLAME THIS POOR STAINED SKY
IT JUST FELL FROM THE STARS

I WOULD JUMP INTO A FIRESTORM
JUST TO LEAD YOU THERE
THEN MAYBE YOU’LL UNDERSTAND THAT
WE ALL BURN THE SAME

SO PLEASE DON’T DARE TO BLAME THIS POOR STAINED SKY
IT JUST FELL FROM THE STARS, LOOK UP
IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL SO SMALL
IT WILL MAKE YOU CRINGE
NO ANSWERS TO SATIATE
OUR NATURAL BORN THIRST

BORN AND ROT, SHINE AND RUST

SO PLEASE DON’T DARE TO BLAME THIS POOR STAINED SKY
IT JUST FELL FROM THE STARS

WE ARE MADE TO BE BROKEN
WE’RE MADE TO FILL THE PIT
THE ONE THAT’S SET TO BURST
WITH IGNORANCE AND GREED
Track Name: Dead Plans
DEAD PLANS

FORGET ALL HOPE ABOUT BEING SOMETHING
THE GLORY EXPECTED SEEMS TO FALL SHORT

THE TIME KEEPS PASSING BY HORIZON CRASHING ON
THE WALL BUILD UP WITH YOUR APPROVAL

YOUR FEARS GAINS POWER WITH THEIR MENACE
YOUR FUTURE PLANS PAINTED BLACK FOREVER
THE STORY YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO LIVE IS DEAD AND BURIED
THE FAIRY TALE RUNS FROM YOUR SIDE

NOWHERE TO RUN (YOU’VE BEEN PART OF THE LIE)
FAILED PLANS OF FITTING IN
NO PROSPECTS NO WIFE OR KIDS
YOU’RE NOT THAT MAN (WAKE UP THIS IS YOUR LIFE)
SCHOOLBOOKS NEWS AND RADIO
THEY WANTED YOU UNDER CONTROL

BLACK SUITS ARE GONE, YOUR SCARS LOOK BETTER
THE WAR IS DONE, FELT WORSE THAN EVER
THEY TOOK YOUR MONEY AND HOUSE
BUT THEY CAN’T TAKE YOUR PRIDE
NEVER LET IT LEAVE YOUR MIND

SOMEWHERE TO GO (NEED TO FOLLOW THE LIGHT)
COMING DAYS OF BLOOD AND SHIT
WON’T STOP YOUR DESIRE TO LIVE
YOU’LL BE THAT MAN (THIS IS YOUR REAL LIFE)
THE MAN WHO SPENT HIS LIFE AT WORK
THE ONE THAT FOUGHT TO BE SOMETHING MORE
WHO FOUND THE PLACE WHERE HE BELONGS
Track Name: Writhe In Agony
WRITHE IN AGONY

I WISH YOU COULD TURN, ASHES INTO FLESH
BRING NEW LIFE TO WHAT’S ROTTEN AND GREY
DAYS RUN FAST, YEARS SPURED THE SHAME
AND EVERY FUCKING WEEK JUST PASSES BY THE SAME

GLORY DAYS ARE BRIGHTER NOW
AND THAT BURDEN… YOU CAN’T BEAR IT ANYMORE

LIFE HAS STOPED BENEATH DIRTY SHEETS
OF AN EMPTY BED MADE OF DEAD CIGARETTES
BITTERNESS SPILLED IN THE SHORE OF YOUR BRAIN
AND REBEL SOUNDS CAN’T RELIEVE THE PAIN

GLORY DAYS ARE BRIGHTER NOW
AND THAT BURDEN, YOU CAN’T BEAR IT
I HATE TO SAY, BUT YOU’VE JUST LOST IT

RIGHT NOW, GET READY NOW
(LISTEN TO WHAT I’M SAYING)
RIGHT NOW, GET READY NOW
(PLEASE LEND ME YOUR EARS)
RIGHT NOW, WRITHE IN AGONY

ACHING FOR FAILURE THAT’S WHAT YOU DO
MAKING SURE NOBODY LOVES YOU

(YOU BETTER MAKE THE CHANGE RIGHT NOW)
Track Name: Count Me In
COUNT ME IN

IF THE WORLD’S NO LONGER WRONG FOR YOU
TELL ME HOW BAD IS IT?

HURT BY SUNDAY LIGHT BEAMS
YOU’RE STILL SOMEONE FOR ME
I’M SURE YOU KNOW WHERE I CAN BE FOUND

COUNT ME IN

EVEN IF THE DANCE OF DAYS DESTROY ALL THE GOOD IN US
THERE’S A PIECE OF OUR LAST CHANCE
IN EVERY MINUTE GONE
I’M SURE YOU KNOW WHERE I CAN BE FOUND

COUNT ME IN, WE CAN TRY TO GROW A BRAND NEW SKIN
WHERE THE KNIVES TO COME WILL CUT NEW WOUNDS

IF WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BLEED, IF WE’RE SUPPOSED TO FALL

I CAN BARELY SEE THE STEPS
OF THIS STAIRCASE TO NOWHERE
BUT IT FEELS WAY BETTER WHEN
YOU’RE LEADING ME THERE
AND YOU KNOW WHERE I CAN BE FOUND

COUNT ME IN
