Towards something greater than life as we know it x3
Every morning I wake up, wishing to be in a diferent place than this

Egos are getting onto a war, egos are getting onto a war, egos are

VALUBLE VOTE
Everytime I apreciate my friends even more, friends that stay friends

Between smoke and boose sounding laughs are heard, life is among us

With the view outside time rolls fast long roads and straight ones
never feeling like an outsider
WE GOTTA STAND UP FOR EACH OTHER, together we stay fit together we pull thru
WE GOTTA FIGHT FOR EACH OTHER, together we stay fit together we pull thru
Who doesn't has friends has nothing, cuz our most valuble vote stays
with our friends
Who doesn't has friends has nothing, cuz our most valuble vote stays

WE GOTTA STAND UP FOR EACH OTHER
WE GOTTA FIGHT FOR EACH OTHER
TOGETHER WE STAY FIT, TOGETHER WE PULL THRU
TOGETHER!!
With the view outside time rolls fast long roads and straight ones
never feeling like an outsider!

STAY together as far as we can go
STRONG against all ods keeping the love
Track Name: Corações ao largo
CORAÇÕES AO LARGO

Tonight I decided to write you a song cuz I've been denying it for to long
Life happens, love happens but lies and deceive always come with the package
But I maintained my hopes high those are the last ones to die
LAST ONES TO DIE
But I'm still bruising and I'm still afraid of letting myself go
riding on these emotional rollercoasters
But I want you close, you make me feel so safe
When I look at you my chest feels up with warmth inside, I look at you
and I know that we'll be fine
Maybe we could build a life just you and me, away from what made us feel misery
I'm sorry I have to walk away right now from what could be a perfect
picture, but I can tell you this despite all that I hope we survive
cuz I wouldn't mind to get along for the ride

Along for the ride!
I'm a hopeless dreamer, but dreams aside I know this is true
And I just want the world to know no lies just love is what we'll get us through
No lies just love is what will get us through.
Track Name: Love and hate
LOVE & HATE
I love you but I hate you anyways
you're always pushing and pushing, keeping the air from me
Goodbye sad big clowd, go haunt someone else
New skys seem clearer, and it fucking feels good as hell
I love you I hate you, I love you I hate you, I love you I hate you, I
love you I hate you, hate you HATE YOU!
Track Name: Jollyride (ft. Fuck GRANKAPO)
JOLLYRIDE
Do you know what happens when you risk your life
Flipping the coin expecting it to be on your side?
You start to sweat, your hands start shaking and your mouth gets dry very fast
Leading you to think that alone you can't pass the test
OH GOD WHAT HAVE I DONE?
Putting my self at risk and the ones that I most love
OH GOD WHAT HAVE I DONE?
For one more round, just one more round I need it in my blood
Do you know what happens when you risk your life
Flipping the coin expecting it to be on your side?
You get that rush of happiness mixed with the numb state of your mind
In a magic place where you can hide, and it feels so good, the warmth inside
Last night is done, my all body is sored, I'm a souless man walking
regardless of waht I've done
But today is a new day, I need a fresh pump running thru my veins
OH GOD WHAT HAVE I DONE?
For one more round, just one more round, I need it in my blood
OH GOD WHAT HAVE I DONE
For one more round, just one more round
This is my rise and fall
NO STRENGHT TO CHANGE MY LIFE, I got to change my life x2
Track Name: Home is where the heart is
HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
When I have thoughts about that place you could take a picture, cuz I'm smiling
Knowing you still care, you're not past but still present
I just called to ear your voice, what a cheesy thing to say, but
coming from you, I know it's true, but fuck you're milion miles away!
Back home, earing a silent sound, just city lights from my balcony
I miss the feeling of that town involving my soul and my body
I MISS THE FEELING, I MISS THE FEELING, I miss the feeling of that town
I'ts overwelming, I can't explain it, I miss the feeling of that town
Will I ever return to the sunny land of dreams, where life seemed so easy?
It wasn't my intention to fall in love, I always thought my heart
wasn't ready for this!
TAKE ME BACK, TAKE ME BACK
To the sunny land of dreams
TAKE ME BACK, I NEED TO GO BACK
TAKE ME BACK, TAKE ME BACK
To th sunny lan of dreams
TAKE ME BACK, I NEED TO GO BACK!
TAKE ME BACK, TAKE ME BACK
TAKE ME BACK, TAKE ME BACK
To the sunny lan of dreams
TAKE ME BACK, TAKE ME BACK
To the sunnt land of dreams
Back to the shit hole where everyone seems alike, I have to break
free, there is no stoping me
I have to go back, to the sunny land of dreams.
Track Name: Across crossed fire (ft. João Cabeças SHAPE)
ACROSS CROSSED FIRE
How I remember to dream about growing up, thinking how life will turn
out when your 21
Oh god I was so young, I was so naive, the life I now live in nothing compares
The scene is completely fucked up, without money the world seems to stop
Big spenders spending big, leaving us out there
To fight the lions, across crossed fire, we fight to survive!
WE FIGHT WE FIGHT TO SURVIVE, in a country with no king
WE FIGHT WE FIGHT TO SURVIVE
We see each other forced to seek for hope in this chaotic truth
Leaving the word that we'll come back soon to pick it up
From where we left, from where we left, from where we fucking left!
Never, never let go your precious weapon
Hold on to your will of heart, cuz it will be with you where you are!
The pieces of this puzzle are all mixed up, it's harder everyday to
get things right
It's foggy out there and by that we can't see our path, stepping foot
on dangerous mines
That blur our way, living by their rules, that only serves them right
Break the pattern, change your life!
Track Name: Lost at sea
LOST AT SEA
We at some point are all LOST AT SEA
Trying to find land on a SINKING SHIP
Thinking the tid will never change
But suddenly every thing in your life turns bright, thru the clouds
the sun is shining high
And when all hope was lost, you came across something in your path
that made you change directions of life and love.
