Track Name: Blackmail
Why the feelings are so hard to aim, I just don't get it
How do I never realize?
That's right, because of that my heart was in slowmotion
Strangers in a different reality

Caught in the ambush, I cannot escape
I must get rid of your filthy lies before I go insane
More of the same

How could you say things you didn't feel at all?
Go tell'em to someone else 'cause I had enough
Shadows and echoes of a time already misspent
I'm willing for the end

You didn't care about our memories
And now I can see why
you were worried about send them like postcards, there's nothing left
Who else have you treated like me?
And you didn't even care
A blackmail to the heart for what was so special
I feel betrayed

Despite my love has been a weapon in wrong hands,
you are done killing it

How could you say things you didn't feel at all?
Go tell'em to someone else 'cause I had enough
Shadows and echoes of a time already misspent
I'm willing for the end
Track Name: For a Trick
For a Trick

We were people who didn't fit in any place
No one said we never tried so hard
Wanted something to do, something to achieve, I was consumed

This is what I am dying for (for a trick)
As I keep repeating while I'm falling to the floor
With the tears covering my eyes
I'll flip the board and try it again,

I'm dying for that trick

Philadelphia is full of crackheads, nobody wants to be here
But I never loved until I found Love Park

This is what I am dying for (for a trick)
As I keep repeating while I'm falling to the floor
With the tears covering my eyes
I'll flip the board and try it again, I'm dying for that trick

Never give in, for a trick
I will try it again
Track Name: Inch by Inch
It’s time to break the chains that oppress me and don’t let me be free
It’s time to start the change
All you have to do is focus on what you really want,
get the fuck out and do it NOW

Slowly, I will rise
I don't need nobody to value what I do
I won't let me wear always a frown
What you have to do it’s throw the shit away
‘cause everything is gonna be okay

It took me a bunch of months
to take the plunge and see that’s there’s no need to hurry
‘bout what I wanna be
GET THE FUCK OUT
I’m no longer overwhelmed,
but I’ll keep the struggle for those good times,
so hard to come

All the best is yet to come
At first glance you won't realize about what you have achieved,
but you will see how far you’ve gone
Don’t feel desperated ‘cause you’ve got plenty of time
to put in practice what you learned

GET OUT
DO IT NOW
GET OUT.
Track Name: Built to Last ft. Chris "McGrath" (Much the Same)
Listen up!
I don't need an intervention
Go away!
I'm free enough to live
I'm responsible
Of my fears and insecurities
Unquestionable
All that I can be

The tears and joys of getting older
Beneath the surface of where I'm hiding shows
without a doubt that I still keep my spirit ageless
In any moment
In any given moment I will strife against the comments
you had and get you labeled with all my words

Anyone would say that is impossible to make,
but I'm the one who make things happen
And everyone will see that I will walk alone,
I will walk alone again

I was born to walk for miles
No one can go any further
but turning 80 is not an easy task,
I am built to last

Anyone would say that is impossible to make,
but I'm the one who make things happen.
And everyone will see that I will walk along,
I will walk alone again
Track Name: Between You and I
I can't remember since the last time we ever met,
Like nobody knows
Right from the start, coming clean in misconception
You were mainly my best friend

Could we live like those things never happened?
Don't ask me why
Keeping our friendship is so important for us
Don't ask me why
this will stay between you and I

And I might say
making others opinons so relevant
was a world of doom and self-destruction
In my dismay
where everything looked a little different,
better wave that shit goodbye

Could we live like those things never happened?
Don't ask me why
Keeping our friendship is so important for us
Don't ask me why
this will stay between you and I

I won't stand a chance, that time together that we spent
But everything must come to an end
I won't stand a chance, that time together that we spent again
But everything must come to an end
Track Name: Not My Home
How many lifes you lived while you weren't at our place?
There's no need to feel sorry, it went out of hands
We are pieces running in every direction
Over and over
Waiting to be matched

It's not all your fault
Is not my home

Theres no chance of recognition
To a place I can't call home
The missed relief inside this bare refrain
And all the songs we left alone

We are the flames of a fire we never lit
With all the promises we couldn't keep
Of course there will be consecuences
I've never took anything for granted,
and I never believed in second chances
And neither faced the problems all together
'cause we both know we never weren't that sincere

It's not all your fault
Is not my home

Theres no chance of recognition
To a place I can't call home
The missed relief inside this bare refrain
And all the songs we left alone
Track Name: Row 22
I dream again with the row 22
By far it was the best trip we ever had in our lives
Bent and broken, feeling grey,
we met extraordinary people,
and even made new friends

Lost ID's in suicidal flights
First encounters and drunk fights
Wonder what I did that night
I'm feeling sick inside

CAN SOMEONE HIT ME IN THE CHEST???
CAUSE I WANNA KEEP DRINKING
NOW
Track Name: Anxiety
Breathing here’s so hard that it hurts
What can I do for what is cynical to change?
Enclosed in this false feeling
Breathing here is so hard

I look myself inside a mirror
I feel weird and I feel strange
Four concrete walls collapsing
Crumbling over me

I fight for myself

This synergy is always dashing hopes
So on and so forth
When I look after you
Humanity doesn’t seem to exist
Giving all that I am
While my wealth fall down the stairs
Track Name: Deliverance
Waking up, facing every day
Places and stories I can't believe
Lies that made me so hard to see
and now I will show the world
My prospects take up enough space,
From an empty heart in such an empty place.
I got lost, but honestly
I will find my way (I'm not a slave)
Worthless, untrustworthy words
Hipocresy at its finest
Learning things on the hardest way
So despicable

Wasting our time with gibberish
The weight of this too damn big that we can't stand
It's all in vain, stop talking shit
Don't waste our fucking time

Where are all those frontiers
we were supposed to break?
Or should we wait?
Deliverance
Nobody can be sure about
what to expect
And what to say
Deliverance

Can you tell me how the hell
we get ourselves involved in compromises,
not a big deal, but still a fucking shame
It's so hard get rid of this, anyway,
what's the difference between be promoted
and do it by ourselves?
Well, I'll do it for me.

We'll find the keys to open doors
No fucking way, we won't give up
Is it hard to understand
to let us do our shit
This is for real
Deliverance
Nobody can be sure about
what to expect
And what to say
Deliverance
Track Name: Over
There's no easy way to set things through
I am sorry I can't stay for you
You have confidence and self esteem
But none of this was meant to be
You always put a smile of my face
And I loved you to the core
But I want to make you know this
I want you to notice

When you love something you better leave it
When it's over, it's over

Better move on

When you love something you better leave it
When it's over, it's over
