Track Name: Fortune
I can't recall the first time I dropped the ball,
and tomorrow I'll forget this one too (IN TIME)
No matter how hard I’ve tryed it was always pointless. looking back I understand things were never that important
If you've been pushing yourself down,
like you did last month and the month before It might not be the last time
IT MIGHT NOT BE THE LAST TIME!
When you’re already conceding defeat how can you expect to succeed?
It might not be the last time.
IT MIGHT NOT BE THE LAST TIME!
I know how hard it is to feel like a loser,
to look in the mirror and see less than you are
To think "What have I done? YEAH! I fucked it up’’, but I got back up, and in time so will you
Chin up, it will hurt much less tomorrow we all fuck things up sometimes,
Stop wallowing in self-pity.
brush the dirt off, get up and try again.
If you've been pushing yourself down,
like you did last month and the month before It might not be the last time.
IT MIGHT NOT BE THE LAST TIME!
When you’re already conceding defeat how can you expect to succeed?
It might not be the last time
IT MIGHT NOT BE THE LAST TIME!
Press pause, breathe in, fill your chest with hopes and dreams let your feet break down from the ground
Of all thoughts, the one you need to keep in your mind
it’s that fortune that favors the bold.
Track Name: Contagious
I’m not dead buried six feet under
neither alive when I’m high
I’m stuck in the middle
And every once in a while a lightening strikes
and all seems to fall apart
Give me an impression
that I’m part of an act
that’s not why I’m here
You told me the problem
and still expect me to play the role
You stress me out
and use my rage back at me
You fake it as yours
as contagious as it is
It’s not your fault
I’m damaged and hopeless

And every time you make me stumble,
I’ll trip and fall but Iknow I’ll rise again
RISE AGAIN,
And all the times I search for answers
I’ll make a trip to hell and back again,
BACK AGAIN

I’m not young
Neither i’m old
I’m just stuck in the middle
with no place left to go
No place to call home
no backyard no law
trying to relax while my blood is burning,
when I’m nothing but numb
I blame you, and I blame you,
It’s easier this way
avoid the guilt, put it on them
on the sun and the rain,
on fate, ‘cause you can relate
IT’S EASIER, this way
avoid the guilt, PUT IT ON THEM,
on the sun and the rain,
on fate, ‘cause you can relate
It would be a lot easier,
And the problems would disappear,
If we learned to talk to each other,
It’s the worst/better thing ever,
To gain knowledge about yourself,

And every time you make me stumble,
I’ll trip and fall but Iknow I’ll rise again
RISE AGAIN,
And al the times I search for answers
I’ll make a trip to hell and back again.

stuck in the middle, stuck in the middle,
STUCK IN THE MIDDLE,
I’m stuck in the middle.
Track Name: Semantics (ft. Vasco Resa - Omited GR/ Overcome)
Call
Call out your demons
Everywhere you go they're still arround Call
Call out your demons
in every silence you can ear them sound
False edges, short steps
Overwhelming feelings are blowing in my chest Desire or will I have it above all the rest
Throwing knifes, cutting flesh
Delusional thoughts overcome the will to survive boldly and intense, this is how I live my life
THIS IS HOW I LIVE MY LIFE
HEY, HEY
the devil I see the demon I am HEY, HEY
I've created it my self.
Despite all that
Every day is a learning step always managed to get it trough So this is where I stop and think the devil I see, the demon I am, I've created it my self
Walking hand by hand,
with a serpent around my neck, a plague that acompanies me,
to the darkest ends,
HEY, HEY
the devil I see, he demon I am HEY, HEY
I've created it my self.
Track Name: Ricochet
I will be like a heavy stone
I will be here to support you .
like the eagles lifting their sons from the ground.
I will be human, fragile, flesh and bone
And I will be the wind when your ship sets sail.
Naked and raw, kicking and screaming.
Afraid, we are thrown into this world
You may feel that you are from another rock sometimes,
But you’ll never be alone.
Never be alone 2x

The way I see the world
The way I see those words and thoughts
THE HEART, THE WAY
That I once learned
ARE YOU
Standing for what you believe
even if you’re standing alone?
I AM STRONG AND RIGHT

he/she will try to buy away your hopes and dreams,
but Even if it shines bright, be careful with what they have to give,
all roses have their thorns
It’s never enough to be strong,
you might get tricked,
by those who walk beside you.
be smart and sharp,
It is ok to be afraid,
GO FORWARD
BRAVE and lead with your heart.

The way I see the world
The way see those words and thoughts
THE HEART, THE WAY,
That I once learned
ARE YOU,
Standing for what you believe
even if you’re standing alone?
I AM STRONG AND RIGHT
I AM STRONG AND RIGHT.
Track Name: Shark Pound (ft. Jesse Barnett - Stick To Your Guns)
What day is this, is today the end?
People are crazy now we know
who's gonna be the first on to throw the stone?
We function in circles death to us all
OH faceless help us, make us focus on our path AMEN, FUCKING BULLSHIT
It is us against the world x2
Short breaths, gasp faster,
it's almost tuesday to start it over
like caged animals, ginnea pigs stacked into lots
we are but numbers, this shit is about to burst It is waiting in on us, it is waiting in on us!!
Hell is expecting you,
the fork’s sitting in the fry
this is your last shot to save your skin and save your life
Cuz in the minute you step foot on the wrong place the sky starts falling in 5x
but with the strenght and will to survive WILL TO SURVIVE
I swim with sharks anyday, i bite their ass's FACE TO FACE
Cause fliting the scene is not my type
I like to mend my wrongs to rights Feeling good about my self is all i need
Hell is expecting you,
the fork’s sitting in the fry.
Track Name: Death or Glory
these days everybody looks the same,
we’re sheeps in the same herd
some good some bad
yes, it’s true, we are, in part, to blame,
but no matter what we do,
we all have minds of our own.
how did we get so tame ?
I just don’t understand how.
It is so safe to unchange,
to invest on the prison that is your ‘’confort-zone’’
they make the rules and you obey,
It’s what they do - they sell control .
you don’t question the things that you are told
and still you criticize.
You go with the flow,
like a log in the rapids,
you can’t resist them,
when you have no conviction.
it’s not the game I wanna play,
I have changed and they felt betrayed
Only my heart will ever know,
I’m not willing to give it all away,

cuz,
i’m not part of the well-behaved
I love when all is drown in chaos.
waiting for an heaven, what a boring story
contest and fight, it’s death or glory.
