Track Name: Dear Animal
Why so angry? Why so hunger?
Wish I can hear the silence
Never mind me, I've forgotten
You can always fail me again
I know we could be stronger
With your faith in my hands
We’re united by the same end
But my success arises your anger

Everything I've won is what one day I tried to reach
And every time I lose makes me rise again

Animal, your time will come
I can see it in you
Animal, your time will come
I can feel it in you
So just, let me go
Animal, your time will come

Leave the honor, please, let’s talk
Pay attention to my words
Don't close your eyes to the world
When your anger leaves you alone
Track Name: Breaking Bones
As my memories
I’m stronger with the time
I will never be your broken heart

Every day keeps internal fights
I try to fix the sight
‘Cause If I have in my hands the power
I’ll win again

You can throw me
But I’ll come back with my pack of wolves
You know my secrets
You can hit me
But I’ll come back gleaming like gold
You know my feebleness

As my memories
I’m stronger with the time
I will never be your broken heart

Every day keeps internal fights
I try to fix the light
‘Cause If I have in my hands the power of
“I don’t care”

As my memories
I’m stronger with the time
I will never be your broken heart
Break my bones
To get my dreams come so true
And build a stairway to you

Don’t try to take me the words of my head
There’s nothing you can do
No turning back

You break my bones
Track Name: All My Needs
Bury all your secrets and lies across your wall
Bury all your secrets and pride to close your eyes

I can see it through your face
We are hanging by a thread
With just a look reveal
That alone I won't be able to reset
You don’t know just hard it’s for me
When I see us falling down
If you wanna stay now
Hold me and never let me go

I promise you
You’re the only thing I cannot take
And that makes me feel insane
(I promise you)

All my needs find somewhere a reason to cry alone
(Can I go on?)
All my needs find feel you when you’re far away from me
(I’ll set you free)

I can see you through your eyes
Broken and empty is your feel
Fallen tears in vain
Day by day are falling down my face
Day after kick you follow up
Fighting a battle that never ends for you
You know where I’ll be waiting for you
At the other side

I forget to breathe when you’re not here
I need your smell on me
If you say come, I’ll go
I don’t wanna breathe if you’re not here
I need your lips on me
If you say come, I will go
Track Name: Shadows
Fate follows me through my world
So every day, don´t forget that everything is written
Never can slip away

There is destiny, lucky, random and fate
Unpredictable, what is really certain?
Where's the line that cuts the chance?
Those shadows are only in your brain
Do you want the power to change the world?
And write on a blank sheet your own…
Your own typical story of love

I know is not just gain
I know is not the best of me
What it makes we break
By a quirk of fate
We are just on the same way
Side by side we must reach the end

Do you think I still believe in this waste?
It's an excuse for the slag displaying their flag
Waiting for things to happen
Instead they make them happen
There a lot of beliefs that make hate us
If we don't catch up
You would to change the world
And write your typical story of love

If I don’t even know If I want to be who I am
That feeling of being in the world without being yourself

The shadows will make you pay!
Track Name: Take It Easy
Wake up!

Have you ever seen sorrow?
Look into my eyes
I can show you the truth of a sad poor girl's life

Thousands times I've been trying to feel disappear
It's not right, fuck! I must only scream, scream
Come to take my hand, and don't betray me
Don't make me take a breath to drown me again

Where I go?
My world collides with people I know
When the streets are so full and me so alone
I see my life falls through this hole
Take it easy

Have you ever seen darkness?
It’s something I have inside
I can show you the scars caused by losing strives

I lost myself long time ago
I had many feelings that I forgot
I lost myself long time ago
I'll find the key to change it all

Scream for me

Let’s take it easy, my friend
Are you listening?
Hope you can
Track Name: My Crown
Hey you! Tell me! What I’ve done?!
Your fake smiles, your whispers… I can’t anymore
Hey you! Tell me! What I’ve done?!
Think you’re better than me
Take my crown

I don’t know what you say of me
And I don’t care
I know you’re looking for the answers
Straight from hell
I hope you are still fucking away
I'm gonna make you feel like
The last fucking shit, fuck!

Stay away, stay away, my friend
It’s more than I can take
Stay away, stay away from me
I’m sick of all this shit
Stay away, stay away, my friend
And so say bye to pain
Stay away, stay away from me
Nothing is too far away

So many times I heard you came
And I don’t care
Now, can you see me through the hate?
Straight from hell
Now, can you see me from down there?
I'm gonna make you look like
The last fucking shit, fuck!
Track Name: Lost Memories
So many lights on me blinding my eyes to see
Still I haven't seen my face and my memories are erased
I’m so scared, I don’t know what I’m doing here
Is too long this nightmare, starts to become reality

Living for tomorrow is just to live another day
Don’t try to guess the secrets, just let them go away
If tomorrow comes with sorrow, it’s more than I can take
But I’ll move on and bury all the lost memories

Now I’m hearing voices and many eyes on me
Why they cannot say the reasons why I’m here?
I’m so tired, there are questions unanswered
Sometimes I fall apart but always rise again

I can’t hear my heartbeat
I’m thinking about hope
No promise for tomorrow
I feel you, I miss you
Tell me that we will see us again
Track Name: Reborn
You don't deserve more than coexist at the sewer side
With the guilt that will rot and kill you inside

Feel!
Degradation!
You were the biggest scum
The anxiety eats your soul
It is the price if you wanna start again

When the sun rises
The things that you created
The things that you forgot
When the sun goes down
The things that you created
Tonight are so alive
You could be so much more

Now it seems that your whims need a key to get inside
It is time to reborn before darkness arises

Feel!
Strangulation!
You are the blame of all
Every day is exactly the same
Clawing your skin so to show your weakness

When the sun rises
The things that you created
The things that you forgot
When the sun goes down
The things that you created
Tonight are so alive
You could be so much more
All your fears come to life

We all survive trusting who we are
I’m not the person you hate
Take it out on me
Track Name: Temptations
You and me and all that wine
Let's have a great time tonight
Lie down, I'm gonna say you
All these things we'll do just fine
Make me feel and make me fly
Please, leave all the feelings behind
Cause you can ruin at any time
All I want to do on fire

You turned off the fire!

I don’t want to leave this way
My heart’s not tired of the same wrong
We all guide by temptations
Maybe I’m tired already, take me home

I wanna see you laugh for me
One chance for you to suffer again
Vengeance is not always the way
But you make me feel insane
I can't help myself no more
I feel just another lost soul
Cause I can't spend the rest of my life chasing you

It is harder to say!

Where will we go?
Where it ends your influence on me?
This is the last time I’m your puppet
Your scapegoat on your game of love
Even I sit your lips rubbing in me
It makes it harder to forget
Your voice in my head
Track Name: Things That Make Me Die
I've flown so high I could touch the heaven
But the heaven didn't want to see me
I was so high I could feel as ever
But the heaven didn't want to see me

That pressure strangles my heart
And takes my breath unchecked
The solution would end it all
And what I want is to explode

And you must listen when I try
To say the things that make me die
Where is all that sense?
Girl, you always knew just who we are

I’ve fought from above but the height was dangerous
That we could fall again
I’m a vagabond, you’re an angel and I want to have sex
But the heaven didn't want to see me

Can you tell me?
Give me a reason to continue this fight
Your lies
Your memories are eating you inside
Until your pride makes you be buried alive
Track Name: D.I.S.C.
Watch me burn
Heals my wounds and try to make me rest
Watch me
I won’t let you see me cry and hurt
Spit your words
Save your lies that hitting to my chest
Spit out
Let me find the way to live

I cannot breath, I just can tell
That I am losing all what I care
I’ll give myself to mother earth

This is how I bleed
But I won’t show my tears
This is how I’m learning take control
No, never give in
Keep trying to heal
This is how I lose control

And now, who's the blame?
Just they don't care
Who's the blame?
No, they don’t care

Where I go?
The future's gone
My future’s gone
My time is gone

I gave my life to take control
World’s on fire, put your money to safe
I won't be deny these are my final words
Are these my final prayers?
I choose the wrong life
The wrong life
Where I go?
