Atlas 03:25
you said you won ́t need this song, but right then I need it, can I prove you wrong? got our wishes, urges and desires, bad ones, good ones, two sides the tragedies collide. will you ever get what it means to me? receipt for coping with society, and should you read these lines down maybe you will ever get what this means to me? this ain ́t a song for a song, all indifferent to where you belong, still here to make the best of it all, music, genres, cultures, socialize, get in touch, it won’t cost you much! and sometimes I don ́t seem to fit in but that ́s exactly how it has always been, I like this feeling not to fit in, and that ́s exactly who I am!
recently on the phone, a friend told me about his new family home, aware of how lucky he was, this was kinda punkrock to us and I ́m still shredding guitars? so what’s left in the end? a cool looking studded back and my fashion ́s to be coherent? I always care about my look? and what I ́m eating and I ́m drinking, is equal to what I ́m thinking? I always wonder what that means to me, there ́s one thing I come to agree that my girlfriend is more punkrock than me. love for gravenhurst songs, brittle sounds make me feel so strong, inquiring, reading, old movies, arts of living, landscapes seem more beautiful than before! I always wonder what that means to me. there ́s one thing I come to agree that my dad is more punkrock than me. time passed by, ready to agree the answer meanwhile, the true importance of a considerate lifestyle, time passed by ready to agree the answer meanwhile the true importance of a polite lifestyle made me agree that my mum is...and that you dear friend... are more punkrock than me!
my mind gets bored and just insane, everybody around here just looks the same, no one intends to change direction, thinking straight and react to all actions! dressed up, made up well, to hash the looks to fill the pool of satisfaction quite well. my head ́s a globe to turn thoughts around, seeking besides the truth can be found, leading unknown directions I will not think straight nor hopes to fulfill. they do it all, they do quite well but I ́m not sure the task to fulfill, I set my sails to reach other goals, wanna leave ‘em all alone, do they know?
Ghosttown 03:38
houses thoughts tightened on, lonely lights in dead streets serenity ́s long gone, growing anger for fun, new arrivals and brisk winds won ́t be welcome! a feeling I can ́t turn down, all the hate raisin out of this ghost town, so here we are so far, and not welcome, so it ́s not for you! the more we play this with fun, and take the chance and all we give is a fuck for you and your intolerance! sense is a word unknown, waving through minds to hollow to be your own, clenched fists, I always wanted to..., but that ain ́t my fucking style, like you’d do
known lights are flashing of the place in the sun, heading towards, the fight’s just begun, gazing sore to lick the wounds, intentions once where fun! sorry but it ́s nothing more than envy, what all those pictures only imply! our hearts to cure from our daily routine, coming lucky and former free! amongst ourselves, noone has to know anything about me. surfaces glaring but time lies in wait, bearing dreams of the featherweight, shells bursting up rumors fall apart and truth outruns the façade. thoughts have been mended but noones clear to end it
Nights 02:00
the time has come, to think back aware of all goods we got, in jam packed markets, we stroll with no fear and wide eyes shut! our eyes too big for our stomaches, we think “we want, we want”, anyone has even more, so he ́s to adore! we ́re todays kings but can ́t decide, product, attitude or human life, the more to devour. we ́re todays kings and can ́t collide, product, attitude or human life! embedded on clouds even as kids, the air is quite clear, huge words so small, the unseen delusion we live in no fear. way too much to choose, be prepared to lose.
