I’ve found a place where I can scream out and loud Where I can play the music I want to And no one matters if it’s wrong a right You just do what you got to do Well I know it must sound stupid But sometimes you just realize There’s nowhere else you’d be Nothing else you’d do Tonight I’m gonna sing at the top of my lungs It cannot be different To forget those thousands hours Losing my time by working late So fuck the fake smiles and fuck my duties I know where I belong Let’s just break down closed doors and do the things on our own So here I finally am I can’t imagine a better therapy No need to get drunk or high To get rid of fear and tears And even if I don’t know you Even if you won’t remember me No matter how pointless it could be It’s totally worth it Tonight I’m gonna sing at the top of my lungs

You don't recognize my sorrow You don't see my pain Even if I tell you How bad I feel You've built 4 walls around you To protect yourself from what you've done or not done You've built 4 walls But now it's time for someone to smash them down Open your ears now it's time to admit things are absolutely not like you pretend Open your eyes and you may see that People you've left behind are still waiting For you to make a sign, to do anything You know we won't always be standing there, hoping for something to change Our patience and our faith as reached the limit Somewhere outside two children are looking for their father Fifteen years of expectations, the grown-ups still wonder, where you are... But now anger left its place to disappointment I warn you, it's your last chance Or it’ll be over once and for all

Lyrics by Oliver Williams They all think that we are beat But we know that they are wrong For we know life will be sweet If we keep on keeping on They all think they’ve got us down But we know that we are strong For we know that good comes around If we keep on keeping on They all want to see us fall But we see our chance has come We know we can have it all If we keep on keeping on They all want to see us cry But we know the race is long One day they will see us fly If we keep on keeping on If we keep on keeping on

You never say a word You never stand for anything No idea, no fight’s good enough for you To make your voice heard Until that day They’ve gone too far You didn’t need to think it twice To decide that you had enough So you, and a bunch of idiots Went down in the streets Chose the wrong wrong cause But a least Showed the world your true colour Homophobic Your family model is threatened and you think you’re Heroic To stand against other’s rights Cause they’re different to you What a surreal vision Everybody’s united Singing and walking For a common goal And you believe that’s ok It’s just a simple citizen act What the fuck is wrong with you? What was going through your mind? Guess what? Things have changed now Your shitty ideas belong to the past And you should go back to your quiet life Now that you’ve sown a climate of fear, of hatred Get the fuck off, we don’t need you

I keep turning over the situation in my mind How things can get so fucked up, out of control I’m seeking to find a solution But these barricades just won’t let me pass through The choices I’ve made, you wouldn’t understand Though I’ve tried hard to do the best To keep staying on your sight But a presence’s not enough, we both know that How can we build something Without overcoming, the shadow of the past Unspoken words on weighing afternoons That’s all we had There was nothing we could do, but undergo the pressure Everything has fallen apart And I took all the blame on me Disallowing the people you love Denying my own family But I know I still have a sister I can feel the lack of you round me It’s such a total waste, which can be stopped Come on, come on There must be a way out For what I know It’s not over for now Don’t be afraid it’s always time to do one step back They say I have a sister But we’re complete strangers

Dear mother, This is just survival. Cannot promise your children everything, But you would lie so they can sleep tonight. Defeat tasted nothing like you said. Still 22 days left till the end of the world. My legacy was making you a man For a justice I could not change. This is one voice not to forget; "Fight every fight like you can win; An iron fisted champion, An iron willed fuck up." Can anybody tell me why God won't speak to me? Why Jesus never called on me to part the fucking seas? Why death is easier than living? You can be almost anything When you're on your fucking knees. Not today, Not my son, Not my family, Not while walking is still honest, And you haven't given up on me. Dear shithead, This isn't happening; The sky is really falling, The paint's all made of lead, There's asbestos in the walls, Hell's coming to rip off the doors To your priveleged heaven. Do you want to love and feel it? You can look but you can't taste it. You can reach but you'll never have it. We are untouchable; Untouchable is something to be. Can anybody tell me why God won't speak to me? Why Jesus never called on me to part the fucking seas? Why death is easier than living? You can be almost anything When you're on your fucking knees. Not today, Not my son, Not my family, Not while walking is still honest, And you haven't given up on me, And you haven't given up on me, And you haven't forgotten me...

There's a tear in my soft drink Caused by nothing but a blink Someone tried to talk to me As silent as the wind could be There's a song I'd like to write There's a war I'd like to fight Let's say that I lost my pen My gun, my motivation. Again. A tear in my soft drink Caused by nothing but a blink There's a storm in my teacup It's late and I've to pack up The sun lies down and so am I I won't give another try Let's say that I lost my mind Can't leave anything behind I give you everything My voice, my gun, my self-esteem Nothing remains But memories and regrets

I would wait for hours and hours To see the last teardrop hitting the ground And I would walk a thousand miles To see a smile which has been lost Winter is cold as never before As if time were standing still Despite the cold wind and rain I can't stop roaming the empty streets When the first ray of the sun Appears in the sky I will not be able To forget the nearest clouds I would cross oceans and seas I'm not even sure if I can swim But there is a smile that has been lost And I can't stop thinking of nothing else Winter's getting colder and colder As if time were standing still Despite the cold wind and rain I can't stop roaming the empty streets And the first ray of the sun Appears in the sky I swear I'll try To forget the nearest clouds
9.
It didn't take long for us To realize that we had nothing to talk about anymore It became a challenge for us To find the words and start the conversation we were looking for So we may have been friends in the past But now we are strangers We once had things in common Things have changed and that is no longer the case We once had dreams in common Dreams have changed, after all, it was just a phase So we may have been friends in the past But now we are strangers I won't be here to wipe your tears away You can't count on me anymore I'll walk by on the other side of the road I can't count on you anymore
10.
Believe me, there's nothing more frightening Than a ringing telephone in the middle of the night Nothing less comforting Than a story you can't write Nothing more to say Nothing more to do Than write words that will fade away Than look for things to hold on to And there is plenty of things I would like to dedicate to you Each song, each tear, each smile Each beer I won't drink Each fucking rhyme of each fucking line I'll be singing until I lose my voice I'll sing against me songs all night long Out of tune but no one will pay attention We all have to be strong Dealing with facts, not fiction Nothing more to say Nothing more to do Than write words that won't fade away Than find things to hold on to And there is plenty of things I would like to dedicate to you Each song, each tear, each smile Each beer I won't drink Each fucking rhyme of each fucking line I'll be singing until I lose my voice

I don't know if that day will come But don't get me wrong I'm not waiting for it I'm living and I'm fighting for it I'm sure that my day will come But don't get me wrong I'm not waiting for it Until that day I'll keep fighting With all my heart All my energy All my friends An organized political family Fighting against all forms of oppression We stand for liberation And when that day will come We'll be ready Our red and black flag will fly proudly I'm living and I'm fighting for it I'm sure that my day will come But don't get me wrong I'm not afraid of dying I'm just afraid of not trying With all my heart All my energy All my friends An organized political family Fighting against all forms of oppression We stand for liberation A self-managed A stateless A classless society No sacrifice's lost for a great ideal
