Track Name: Ted Moody - To the right place
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
Track Name: Ted Moody - The next one is for family
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
Track Name: Ted Moody - Keep on keeping on
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
Track Name: Ted Moody - Marianne's in troubles
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
Track Name: Ted Moody - Consequences
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
Track Name: Ted & Flo - Walking is still honest - Against Me! cover
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...
Track Name: Flo Chmod - A Tear in my Softdrink
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
Track Name: Flo Chmod - Colder and Colder
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
Track Name: Flo Chmod - We May Have Been Friends in the Past
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
Track Name: Flo Chmod - Nothing More to Say
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
Track Name: Flo Chmod - What We Stand for
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
