Track Name: First the town, then the world
If we had ever cared about your words when you once said this was impossible, maybe we wouldn't have even tried.
We've been through ups and downs, highs and lows, tough moments but we've learned about commitment and sacrifice.

We all think about sweat and tears when we had to put our knees on the ground.
Torn finger tips and sore throats, only walls paying attention.
Then came the time to see the light, travel the world and cut the rope.
Our ship has drifted hard but, believe me, now can't be drown.

We first claimed this town. Fist up, head down. We know where we belong and what it takes to shape diamonds.
We now claim the world. A life-long battle. Fueled by passion, until we're sick, bored, sore and soaked.

Gossip says about selling out, even when we have nothing to sell.
It's all about opportunities and the art of making good bets.
Proud of what we've done so far, we know who's standing by our side.
And every time the sun comes down, we try to catch shooting stars.

We're standing here with goals and dreams, not regrets.
Every mile driven reducing the distance.
No shame in making things happen, no matter what it takes.
With all the guts out, loud and plain : we first want this town, then we want the world !
Track Name: Behind the wall
Bound to our passion, that 8 hour drives and money loss can't erode.
Away from home, we got offered a place to stay when you opened the door.

Tell me about your story so far, show me the way you live
We'll keep in touch, I'll spread your words.
We haven't been through the same things, but we can share so much
I won't forget once I'm back home

I don't mind sleeping on cold floors when it's warm inside
I feel touched when you've got nothing but give what have
Sometimes brought on a pedestal then I should build statues of you all with the stones left from the wall

Beer and gin fueled nightlong chats while sitting on the concrete pavement.
Bright lights afar will never shine more than what we've got in our hearts.

It's hard to figure out you lived into struggle
It's hard to figure out the social pressure
It's just about you and me on each side of the wall.
Track Name: Parted ways
Back in the days, nailed to our decks and thrilled at our first stunts.
We were kings of the block, marble grinders, concrete rulers.
I've wished these days could last a bit longer.
Let's take a last ride at sunset and enjoy this moment

Hell on wheels, bleeding ears, bad movies and cheap beers
Tomorrow will look the same, but we'll have fun once again
What happened to these days ? Why are we feeling different ?
I don't want to act my age but I wish you could really say the same.

Entering my thirties, my good ol' wooden toys still lay in my room
While yours are forever struck in the attic
Many excuses for a single problem, we're growing old, but growing different

We've parted ways since then, we said "friends 'til the end".
We've never imagined how we could have grown that old.
We've parted ways since then, I cannot stand the distance.
I don't want to turn the page and say that the link is broken now.

These painful deep-set shards remind me what I've lost.
Much more than a friend, a brother, a 10 year friendship and everything over.
Got a wife ? Children ? A 20 year loan ? A brand new car you get mad on.
We've shared so much over the past decade, hard to believe it makes you happier
Track Name: Always rain
Rain drops drum on the window.
And the moonlight makes them shine.
It could be a safer situation
If I wasn't locked with you outside

If I really had to make myself a further step
Would you really stop me doing it ? What would you care about ?
The situation we're trapped in has turned to non-sense.
Both of us are aware and no one seems to know what to do.

Why does it always rain on me ?
Why these black clouds above my head ?
Why do they follow me when I move ?
Is this rain gonna ever end or should I find a shelter and dry myself ?

I give up. I want to lay down, stop breathing, hear no sound.
Here I am : eyes wide open, nervous chillin, spasmodic breathing and still coughing up and then the void
Track Name: Down
I wish the phone never rang on this day. Nothing could prepare prepare myself to the kind of call I've just had. I'm basically stuck in time.
No adrenaline rush can warm my blood as time stands still and your body's fighting to keep you alive. Wait for me, I'm coming.

I can be the friend to rely on.
The one I've never been, the one who's wrong
The guy who couldn't catch the signals
The imbecile who once said he had enough

I once said I had enough.

Give me a shooting star. A genius in a bottle. A four leaf clover.

I never believed in anything. God for sure, maybe not even in you. Did you feel it ? Now I can't ask you.
I'm here telling prayers and there's no one to listen. I wish while I stand close to this bed we still make connections.

I wish I could swallow these words
I wish I could foresee the worst
I wish I could prevent you to sharpen the blade and bleed yourself to death
Track Name: Tomorrow starts today
It all started like this
A crap basement and cheap amplifiers, buzzing so loud they made our ears bleed.
We had no idea where we were heading to but basically yeah, tomorrow has started that day.

We blew tubes, torn speakers, cracked cymbals, broke so many strings and sticks.
We banged our heads, so hard, until it ached
We then chose to open the door and get outside. No one, not even us knew who we were, but we've been told tommorow starts today.

We practiced, again and again, torn our finger tips and nails, broke the locks that kept us in cage.
This is the only way we've found to feel alive and yeah, we're glad tomorrow starts today.
Track Name: These towns need guns (feat. Steve Rawles)
And everything went black ... Someone is bleeding. Someone is lying. Maybe I am ?
Maybe we're all. Maybe we're dead.

The gunshot still rings out in my head, as I don't even know if there's any way to survive. Running away or keeping my eyes shut while I'm under cover ?

How could we imagine we'd get that far ? Eradicating violence with even more firepower.

Remember that weapons don't kill but a man does. It's just someone who's pulling the trigger.
One more prayer for the fallen and then you'll claim these towns need guns.

Never give up until the summoning death machines have been locked up forever.
Until then, together, let's raise our voice so loud bullets remain silent.
