Track Name: Missing Flame
Deepest roots reached by the frost wait for the rain waiting for the storm crownless people on our side walking under an arid sky drop the hammers drop the guns wavering flags oh what's it for? and once again we miss the light and once again we miss the flame of an early dawn wide black silver eyes promise you a thousand lies no lack no need no want among those who reject the dirtiest crown once again we miss the light once again we miss the flame of an early dawn we miss the light we miss the flame I see dark clouds in the distance getting lower no lack no need no want among those who reject the dirtiest crown.
Track Name: Lonely Nights
No more bad dreams no more fights tonight I saw the devil in your eyes and it caught us by surprise lonely father lonely mother god I desire to take you in into my soul I’m sick I’m tired to be the only one I’m lonely I’m tired to be the only one but I’m not the only one I’m not the only one the one who’s screaming at the wall one more lonely one more lonely one more lonely night no more bad dreams no more fights tonight I saw the devil in your eyes and I caught us by surprise lonely father lonely mother god I desire to take you in into my soul I’m sick I’m tired to be the only one I’m lonely I’m tired to be the only one but I’m not the only one I’m not the only one the one who’s screaming at the wall one more lonely one more lonely one more lonely night It caught me by surprise the one who lies the one who tries the one who’s screaming at a wall the one who dares to be surprised the one who’s screaming at a wall.
Track Name: Wine
Sad today sad tomorrow these rocks these people don’t care if I live or die not enough wine to forget not enough wine to survive not enough wine not enough whisky how awful sad I feel my best friend is still in bed jesus had another bad day jesus had another bad day there’s not enough love in this town same old feelings come and go I’m struggling to know what I’m looking for how awful sad I feel my best friend is still in bed jesus had another bad day jesus had another bad day sad today sad tomorrow oh these rocks don’t care if I live or die oh these rocks don’t care if I live or die.
Track Name: Rage
You died and it caught us by surprise you ‘d never lost your faith now you are never coming back You prayed god knows how much you prayed you ‘d never lost your faith no, you are never coming back no shadows on the wall but the candles make the glasses glow and we know you are never coming back we ‘re in a time trap in these days of rage oh how we are going to survive god knows you pray in these days of rage oh how we are going to survive Is this for real? oh, what am i supposed to feel all I know is you are never coming back no shadows on the wall but the candles make the glasses glow and we know you are never coming back we ‘re in a time trap in these days of rage oh how we are going to survive god knows you pray in these days and age oh how we are going to survive.
Track Name: Jack K.
When I fall when I die by a lonesome tree will you stand by me from now on write no more on the walls close the books go find your soul let us dream let us find the way let us dance like an ocean wave we make a move without a trace we spend the night in a quite place it just takes time the road is long I just want to hold you in my arms just one more time.
Track Name: Frank Whitaker
Captain of industry a shadowy character atractive to women atractive to men the greatest words for the greatest guy your tidy world is spinning out of control you run you run you run too slow you cannot scape no you cannot scape from the winter storm you’re trying not to fall you’re trying not to fall I’ll come back for more we live in a land too far from the sea we breathe in a place untouched by the sun your beautiful wife that you never see your tidy world is spinning out of control you run you run you run too slow you cannot scape no you cannot scape from the winter storm and you try to climb that hill unbalanced by the wind unbalanced by the storm and you try to reach that wall roll down the other side perhaps you’ll see some more all you try to find is confidence in the storm.
Track Name: Kim
I had a dream and you were in you were on stage and I just fell in love with the way you play your bass guitar you make my brain swim you make my head spin you take over everything you must be gone out of town ‘cause I can see no one around I can hear no sound you make my brain swim you make my head spin you take over everything.
Track Name: Político X
Shock shock shock we’re tired to be shocked you lie you lie we know when you lie we crossed the country just to say goodbye you lie you lie we know when you lie shock shock shock we’re tired to be shocked you lie you lie we know when you lie we crossed the country just to say goodbye you lie you lie we know when you lie you crossed the line you crossed the line you crossed the line you crossed the line you crossed the line.
Track Name: Icon's Lover
Will you always try to be real? will you always try to be true? did they ever tell you what to do? in your self-imposed exile you seem to do quite well did you ever wonder how i felt? your candle was burning with a high flame will you be able to keep it up again you hide behind your smile but sadness is in your eyes we both know there must be a way out there must be a light somewhere a place where we can hide laughter and tears is all we had your candle was burning with a high flame will you be able to keep it up again.
Track Name: Benicàssim 97
Teníamos veinte y nos volvimos locos ahora con casi cuarenta seguimos locos cada uno por su cuenta anclados en los noventa yo sigo aquí sigo esperando una vez más los viejos hits de los noventa voy aprendiendo a dibujarte en la oscuridad aunque me pierda en el trazo y desfigure tu retrato yo sigo aquí sigo esperando una vez más los viejos hits de los noventa y si hay algún presente que ya no lo siente que hable ahora o calle para siempre.
