Track Name: Octopus in the sand
An octopus in the sand
______

What is a man in isolation but a sky without a sun?
Limited, a miscarriage of fate (a miscarriage of fate)
And though everyone feels lonely at the top
I have my friends by my side
We weren’t meant to be alone
We are not islands, we are continents
What they call mistakes
I call it opportunities to believe
The chance to build, to rebuild, to recall
We weren’t meant to be all alone
The skies will burn yet we stand tall
The legions of corruption bring us all to stand in line
But we will not give in, together we will persevere
And though everyone feels lonely at the top
I have my friends by my side
We weren’t meant to be alone
We are not drops of water, we are oceans
We are oceans
Endless, invincible, capable of swallowing your hopes (your hopes)
Drop the anchor, leave everything behind (everything behind)
And burn, every motherfucking trace,
That keeps you chained to your burdens
I’m just another promise you couldn’t keep (promises)
Now show me the way out lead me into the light
And every time we say goodbye,
Is another chance to start all over again
A new chance to start all over again
I have my friends by my side
I won’t be afraid.

They believe in everything you say
Show me how to do it, they would follow you anywhere
You control everything, hypnotizing everyone that steps in front of your shiny face
Controlled only by a few, making people believe they own you but you own them
You are just an instrument to burn every piece of valuable knowledge
To keep our minds numb, preventing the revolution
Destroying everything with useless images, stereotypes
Fake, everything that surrounds you is fake
Everyday a new prophets arises, a new king is crowned
Dismembering our society from its roots
They try to mold us according to their needs
They put man against man to calm their thirst for power
They use education and religion, to detach us from everything we own.
Controlled only by a few, making believe people they own you but you own them
Track Name: Wooden hands / Paper heart
Wooden hands / Paper heart
______

I know some day you’ll be gone
That day is around the corner
The wind will take your body away
Though your memory will remain, untouchable
The clock is ticking away, I can see it in your eyes (in your eyes)
The flame is fading away, just like the sea swallows my tears (swallow my tears)
Where are you wooden hands?
I can still feel the touch of your rusty hands on my face
Where are you wooden hands?
Missing you has become a constant fear,
A fear that grows inside of me, and brings me to my knees
And now everything has changed and burns like thousand suns
Through skin, flesh and bone
Some say is better to embrace the loss
Where are you paper heart?
I can still feel you amongst the crowd
But I refuse to leave everything behind
Your heart beating your voice in my mind
Calling my name making me smile
I hope we can meet again
Calling my name making me smile
Where are you, paper heart?
I can still feel you amongst the crowd
You are everything we have
Your crystal eyes, your tired voice, make me feel like home once again
Hold me tight and don´t let go
Where are you wooden hands?
Where are you, paper heart?
Everywhere I look reminds of you
Love without fear and never look back
Track Name: I'm the enemy
I’m the enemy
_______________
Making my choice
My dear horizon
What happened with all those dreams and goals that I was fighting for
There is no time to take another road
Because my dying soul is the only one that burns
This is my breaking point
There is no time to take another road
Bu I refuse to fade away and I will never regret the steps that I have made
This is a one way street and there’s no turning back for me this time
My feelings dying, my face against the wind
Crushing my bones to feel what’s real and what’s not
My first reaction is suffering but then my hope goes over the top
I realize that I can win this time
I refuse to (to fade away)
And I will never forget what I’ve learnt
I’ve reached a point of wanting to tear everything apart
My surroundings have become hostile and it affects my own sanity, my own fucking sanity
I’ll find what’s missing no matter what
I’ll crush everything that steps on my way
Every man has a war inside his head
Between what’s good and wrong
Between his heart and his mind
This war inside my head is against myself
I know I can win I cannot be defeated.

I don’t care what you think
I don’t care what you said
I don’t care what we were
Your words mean nothing to me, you fucking liar, betrayer
I will see you fall, sink in your misery
You wouldn’t be missed here not even in hell, there’s no place for you here
Sometimes I cannot believe the many things that we once shared if we are so different
I don’t need you in my life without you this world seem brighter than ever before
(There is no room for you and all of your lies in this place, and we will never forget)
Than ever before (oblivion in where you belong, there’s no salvation this time)
I don’t care what you think
I don’t care what you said
I don’t care what we were
Your words mean nothing to me, you fucking liar, betrayer
Little by little, your memory starts to fade. And it feels so good
Sometimes I cannot believe the many things that we once shared if we are so different (so different)
You are the aftermath, the reason to devastate my past.
You are the aftermath
