Track Name: Song Of Resistance
submitted to order by profit and greed
traded free thinking for new slavery
in the noise of the factories and the silence of the jails
it's not the same but it's only details

but at night I just cannot sleep
in the ceiling there's a leak
water's dripping and I cannot sleep
and a crazy idea comes to me

I'll resist

I gather contacts of people I trust
I've got a plan and a tank full of gas
in the dark of the night in the moment of truth
a lot of thinking and a damned swinging mood

but at night I just cannot sleep
in the ceiling there's a leak
water's dripping and I cannot sleep
and a crazy idea comes to me

I'll resist

'cause to be is not to live
you call it existence – but you don't resist

can't you see – this is me
you call it resistance – I just want to exist

we've got slingshots they have tanks
we've got dreams they have bombs
we've got truth on our side and freshly dug tombs

and the headlines will throw
all the shit on our names
they will say terrorists and we'll say you're to blame

we believe that some day
we will see the decay
of a corrupt elite that spits on people down here

in the smile of a child in the eyes of a girl
in my grandfather's wrinkles there I will find these words

I'll resist
Track Name: Freedom Comes At Night
take a look around
tonight we'll take them out of here
I accept the risk and what I feel ain't no fear
and when I wake up in the morning
with the breeze on my skin
I realize the deep meaning of living free

I am singing by the rhythm of their hearts
I am a criminal and I know the reason why
in a world where freedom slowly disappears
the weakest called my name to set them free

on the darkest night
the mist is a curtain on our scene
a play of freedom no viewer can see
in silence giving back their lives to the innocents
right here right now, a song that you won't hear

I am singing by the rhythm of their hearts
I am a criminal and I know the reason why
in a world where freedom slowly disappears
the weakest called my name to set them free

out of here, at this time, you will find the taste of love and liberty
out of here, at this time, you will find the taste of love and liberty
what you'd never experienced in your life

it happens tonight!
Track Name: My Name Is A Badge
my job is to serve and protect the caste
my name is a badge
I know that you'll never show me respect
that's why I use my club

and so I beat you, I beat you
'cause you know I represent the law
this way I teach you, teach you
you cannot speak out your dissent
bow down and respect my law
and it's gonna make me feel ok
this job makes my day
and someone might think we're all insane
but it still makes my day

I take orders, I'll do what they want me to
disorder ain't no good
my justice in the defense of the ruling class
my shield stained with blood
Track Name: You vs Me
nothing to say
nothing to share tonight
drops of dark in the light
nothing is what I've deserved so far
nothing is what I will find

and each day falls like an axe
nothing in the night but a spark
and suddenly something to see
but it's you vs me

I can't comprehend
the damned fucking message you're trying to send
don't know what's your goal
but I'll be talking no more
I'll be talking no more

something to do
something 'bout me and you
flames softly enlighting the truth
something that hurts like a knife
hope you will be satisfied

spilling my last drop of blood
offered on the altar of your god
that's how you want it to be
it's still you versus me

I can't comprehend
the damned fucking message you're trying to send
don't know what's your goal
but I'll be talking no more
I'll be talking no more

you try to bend my will
this victim learned how to live with these thrills
there's nothing sure in this world
but as I said above, it's still a matter of you versus me

I can't comprehend
the damned fucking message you're trying to send
don't know what's your goal
but I'll be talking no more
I'll be talking no more
Track Name: Another Breath
well, I wonder how I can sleep so quiet
wasting every second of what I still call my life

and I wonder why I need to rely
on this stuff just to keep up with my social life

I just need to turn my brain off sometimes
I need to feel fucking deaf and blind
I need to stop being myself sometimes

I do this to detach from reality
I can't deal with what I am and what I feel

in the end this is just the normality
but don't you know that breathing doesn't necessarily mean you live?

I just need to turn my brain off sometimes
I need to feel fucking deaf and blind
I need to stop being myself sometimes
Track Name: On A Boat
I am guilty 'cause I have to leave this land
I can't come back to my sons with empty hands

I will try to be back then
even if I'm not sure I will get there

I said goodbye to all my friends
my beloved, kiss me once again

with my brothers on a boat that barely floats
in this sea we cut the dark waves like a sword

I don't know what to expect there
but they told me white men won't respect me

a fistul of hope in a foreign land
I miss home, will I ever see it again?

a journey to be free
as everyone should live
as you live quietly I need a place to be
I'm so alone
far from home

I'm just trying to find a way
to live in peace some day
you see we are brothers in this world gone wild
a blood pact that drenched my land in tears

so please don't point me out
don't give me all the faults
the world is sick and we are on the same boat
in this sea of misery we share our hope
Track Name: Give Me The Sun
this wants to be a message to all of us
a message to all
it's something we cannot ignore
ignore anymore

it's today
it comes creeping again
at my eyes
green's turning grey

what will you do?
bow down and prey?
there's no god
we're the only to blame

like melting ice the frail hope of the living
has slipped from our hands
like burning forests blind fear is spreading
through a lazy regress

nuclear waste! what they provide for tomorrow for us!
give me the sun! give me the wind!
be the change you wish to see in the world!
give me the sun! give me the wind!
give me the sun!

the sun of tomorrow
will shine behind those nuclear clouds
the sun of tomorrow
will ever warm these hearts of ice?
the wind of tomorrow
will blow through deserts and burning sand
the wind of tomorrow
will ever bring us better days?

when to change?
need a change!

nuclear waste! what they provide for tomorrow for us!
give me the sun! give me the wind!
be the change you wish to see in the world!
give me the sun! give me the wind!
give me the sun!
Track Name: A Bag At The Door
and now there's no place to go
but any other place in this world
and when this cold sun will burn at dusk
I will turn and walk away

no remorse when you leave a town that can't give anything more
no regret when you get away from a bad soil that would dry out any seed
a bag is at the door
unknown is the way i will go
I will go

those smiles I'm longing for
are faces have not met at all
it's the day I will leave my past behind
it's the day I have my path to find

no remorse when you leave a town that can't give anything more
no regret when you get away from a bad soil, that would dry out any seed
a bag is at the door
unknown is the way I will go
I will go
Track Name: As We See The World Collapse
this world is fucked but who cares in this modernity
in our blind pursuit we don't care about alternatives

thinking of our stupid issues
as we see the world collapse

pollution is rising everyday but not in my yard
procrastinating an intervention 'cause it seems so hard

thinking of our stupid issues
as we see the world collapse

but this ain't no science fiction
as we see the world collapse

we live on a sinking ship
we feel we have much time
to turn the rudder to a safer sea we could have reached a million times
but we keep our course
we think it's no danger
it's like we already know there's no solution for this wreck

we have the chance to choose what to be in our lives
another problem or its solution
it's up to you now

thinking of some serious issues
we could stop this slow collapse

your couldn't care less attitude
will take the world to a slow collapse

we live on a sinking ship
we feel we have much time
to turn the rudder to a safer sea we could have reached a million times
but we keep our course
we think it's no danger
it's like we already know there's no solution for this wreck
Track Name: The End Of The Line
when I was born I was already in prison
when I was born they took my mama away

after a while they tagged me with a number
like an object to be catalogued, I'd say

and now it is my time
I got to the end of the line

you can't hear me cry
I got to the end of the line

there're people who pray to god for his forgiveness
to avoid burning in hell some day

but hell on earth is what I found in prison
the day that i was born till I'll be dead

and now it is my time
I got to the end of the line

you can't hear me cry
I got to the end of the line

they kick me off this truck to meet my destiny
I stand in line in this narrow corridor

the smell of blood makes it easy to predict
what happens at the end of this path

and now it is my time
I got to the end of the line

you can't hear me cry
I got to the end of the line
