Track Name: Straight To The Goal

You need to go straight to the goal, no time for all those things I wanna do.
I don’t want one LONG LIFE OF TRAGEDIES.
Too short, you’d better hurry up bro, run, it’s a fucking race.
This is the only thing we can do, trust me and leave your brain outside
‘cause it’s a REAL DEAL, motherfucker, you know what’s the cost, it’s our grief, it’s our life.
Track Name: Only Master Of My Life

It’s my life and I can’t do nothing ‘bout it. I don’t care what people think. It’s my way of life. Fuck the 9/5, after testing dreams, with eyes wide open, there won’t be no turning back. Live by myself, it’s what I tend to do. Never be in debt, I’m proud of it, are you ?
I’m the only master of my life, are you ? All the decisions I make, right or wrong, helps me to grow.
I prefer to leave and not (to) lose my time standing still.
Are you coming ? I’m the only master of my life, are you ?
Track Name: Breakable

Listen ! We’re at the end and I won’t turn back..
All my gifts, my words, nothing changes.
there’s no regrets, we lived what we had to
I can’t hold us anymore, all that shit for you. Know what ? Forget my love. Whatever happens, there will always be problems
You’re wrong, I’m not, no efforts are made. I’m wrong, you’re not, all is crappy
I can’t hold us anymore, all that shit for you. Know what ? Forget my trust. Whatever happens, there’ll always be problems.
I’m breaking up with you. All those sleepless nights makes me fucking sick.
I need to taste a new life because it’s done between you and me.
You make me fucking sick, I need to feel truly alive.
Cause’ it’s dead between you & me.
Track Name: Out Of My Way
/// OUT OF MY WAY ///

Keeping your head up, this is our reality
Crying together as brothers, united for better or worse
None of us let go
Our hands are wide open, ready to crush the world
All cowards will die me and my buddies we’ll break you off
That's who we are, mother fucker
Cause we want always more, fucking more
Just get out of my face, out of my way.
You’re not my bro., not my friend.
Your mouth is wide open, ready to eat a brick through your teeth
You should see all the crap you say, you bother me, get the hell out, asshole.
That's who we are, mother fucker
Cause we want always more, fucking more
Just get out of my face, out of my way.
You’re not my bro, not my friend.
You’re not from my family, not my fucking friend.
You sell your soul once more, as if it did not matter
I stay proud, can you?
Look at you now, you are alone.
Track Name: Fucking' Live

Fucking live, live my dreams here fucking live
It’s where I move on to, beam me out!
Handle life living comfortable illusions behind
I now offer this trip to myself, off the beaten tracks
I’m becoming what I should have been
Question yourself on what’s left without answers
I run away from pictured ideas
No room for glory and success, only for passion
For those who agree with this, I salute you.
Track Name: The Lion
/// THE LION ///

You know nothing about me
but you think you can judge
But I don't care what you're thinking.
It doesn't matter, I'm unbreakable.
Life is hard enough, I've come back from hell,
but you don't know me, cause I'm unbreakable.
Today I take control,
You can't laugh at my face anymore.
I refuse to kneel,
"Born this way _ Die this way"
It's not my way of seeing things:
It's sink or swim down here.
I agree to destroy all those things I hate in you.
You can't kill The Lion.
