Track Name: Way Out
Nobody told you you’re on your own, so cold and alone,
This constant sickness takes your breath away.
You’ve outgrown yourself, no place to call your home,
You slowly realize you’ve lost your way.

Here again, here again in your fucking head,
Here again, here again, now you’re seeing red,
Here again, here again you close the door.
Nevermore, nevermore, don’t have any more fucking time.

I got a feeling, everything’s gonna be alright,
Just serve more drinks, so there is no pain in sight,
I wanna wash down all my misery and turn out every light,
And watch it all go dark tonight and find my way out.

So just stop, take a look around and ask yourself:
„What have I become?“ Tonight you lose the crown.
You wake up, you light a cigarette, listening to the soundtrack
Of the voices in your head, they calm you down.

Here again, here again in your fucking head,
Here again, here again, now you’re seeing red,
Here again, here again you close the door.
Shut your mouth, turn it off, don’t make any sound,
All this time you’ve been lost, now you’re still not found,
And now you think you’ll turn it all around, but it goes round and round.

I got a feeling, everything’s gonna be alright,
Just serve more drinks, so there is no pain in sight,
I wanna wash down all my misery and turn out every light,
And watch it all go dark tonight and find my way out.
Track Name: 198
Get down on your knees, take your pill to numb the pain,
Go to school, get a job, start a family, everything’s the same.
Fuck you, you wannabe, I always thought it’s you and me against society,
Guess you forgot what it’s like to be in control of yourself.

These voices never leave my heart,
They were here right from the start.
If I could start all over again,
Back where it all began,
This is right where I belong.

Right now it’s time to feel that old drumbeat once again,
The one that pounds to rhythm of your heart, makes you go against the fucking grain.
When it came to the final round, you never hesitated you just let me down,
Now tell me, how do you sleep at night?

These voices never leave my heart,
They were here right from the start.
If I could start all over again,
Back where it all began.
I never thought it’d be so hard.
Just to prove that I’m insane,
I’d do everything the same, just the same,
This is right where I belong.

It’s you and me against society.
Track Name: Last Train
It’s cold night on the city street,
You hunt prey like a piece of meat,
Anxiety comes and drags you around.

It’s nervous breakdown in the back of a crowded bar,
But this time, pretty baby, you have gone too far,
He just gets up and leaves, saying: „I’ll see you around.“

On last track you got the last train stopping,
It’s the last day that you can turn it around,
I’m sorry, baby, but I won’t back down.
On last track you got the last train stopping,
Maybe it’s the last and the first day of your life,
But this won’t stop me now.

So high on a pedestal,
But at least you are invisible,
Do you really enjoy being passed around?

It’s entertainment, how `bout it? Won’t you show me how?
The scars on your soul will start bleeding now,
You don’t know who you are, going round and round.

On last track you got the last train stopping,
It’s the last day that you can turn it around,
I’m sorry, baby, but I won’t back down.
On last track you got the last train stopping,
Maybe it’s the last and the first day of your life,
But this won’t stop me now.

So up but yet so fucking down,
Going in while trying to get out,
It has to hurt, just take your time.
Someday you’ll be whole again,
Someday there’ll be no pain,
Someday you’re gonna wake up,
And I’ll be there and I'm gonna take what’s mine.

On last track you got the last train stopping,
It’s the last day that you can turn it around,
I’m sorry, baby, but I won’t back down.
On last track you got the last train stopping,
Maybe it’s the last and the first day of your life,
But this won’t stop me now.
Track Name: Fuck The Pigs
Do you watch your back out in the streets,
Like a frightened piece of meat,
Getting away from the butcher’s knife?
Or will you stand up and fight?

Fuck those who protect and serve,
But only the wealthy neighborhoods, fuck `em,
This is how it’ll always be,
Nothing has changed but now you’re blind to see.

Fuck the pigs – how could you change so much?
Fuck the pigs – I thought we were friends,
Fuck the pigs – with their own batons,
Fuck the pigs – the service never ends.
Fuck the pigs – fuck this hypocrisy,
Fuck the pigs – my attitude will never change,
Fuck the pigs or better bleed them fucking dry,
Hang `em high until the last one is dead.

So just admit you’re fucking piece of shit,
And don’t pretend that everything’s just fine,
You might’ve broken my trust, you might’ve broken my heart,
But you’re never gonna bring me down.

Oppresion is a crime,
Abuse of power is a crime,
Being dickhead should be a crime,
So we need to kill all the pigs.
Track Name: Another Fallen Hero
Won’t you open up your eyes and let yourself doubt,
Your latest intentions and finally let these words come out?
By betraying what you said you’re betraying your own kind,
Your tribe and everything you never thought you’ll find.

You don’t owe them now but you owe it to your pride,
This is the point where you don’t get to run and hide.
As you get older as years go by, you don’t care anymore,
It’s just death or glory now, that’s what you signed up for.

This is a time and place to be true to your own way,
It’s the right time to stand up for all the things you have to say.
You’re just another fallen hero, I see your regret,
Like the day is losing daylight, these are the things you won’t forget.

I now you’ve heard it all before, this talk of repent,
This angry mob that gangs up on you to take a stand,
They might forgive but will they forget?
You’ll be the one who lost their trust until you’re dead.

This is a time and place to be true to your own way,
It’s the right time to stand up for all the things you have to say.
You’re just another fallen hero, I see your regret,
Like the day is losing daylight, these are the things you won’t forget.

This is a time and place to be true to your own way,
It’s the right time to stand up for all the things you have to say.
You’re just another fallen hero, I feed on your regret,
Like the day is losing daylight, these are the things you won’t forget.

Well, tonight it’s all for sale,
And the neons are burning bright,
But tonight we are insane,
As we all stand alone.
Track Name: Need For Speed
I´m sick and tired of falling asleep,
I really need to wake up, I need to hit the streets,
Don´t give a fuck if I end up on my own.

Ain´t got money for coke and shit,
I´m fucking white trash, I´m getting used to it,
I really need to stay out of control.

Don´t wanna sleep, don´t wanna die,
I just wanna live and stay alive, c´mon!

I´m strolling down these dirty streets,
You need to shut the fuck up and blast some rocking beats,
I wanna see you sliding down the pole.

Ain´t got nothing but a pack of smokes,
Bottle of booze and I´m ready to go,
Day after day I´m burning down my soul.

Don´t wanna sleep, don´t wanna die,
I just wanna live and stay alive, c´mon!
Track Name: I Won't Let You Down
I know the sound of broken heart,
When I hear it in the night I know I’m still alive,
And I know the pain I call my own,
When it strikes it feels just like I’m coming home.

And I know the look that’s in your eyes,
It gets too deep and sees the truth inside my lies,
And I’ve felt so much underrated, all the time I’ve waited,
Waited for you to come back home.

Don’t worry `bout me, I swear that I`ll do fine,
Just like I did in days when you were mine,
When all the lights have faded, my life gets jaded,
Whoever will take the crown, I will not let you down,
Won’t let you down.

Though I still hear the thunder roar, though I still feel the frightened heartbeat,
I realize this is the end of the line.
I’m not giving up, you know I never will, but I know when it’s time to disappear,
But in the end of the day it’s all about you.

Don’t worry `bout me, I swear that I`ll do fine,
Just like I did in days when you were mine,
When all the lights have faded, my life gets jaded,
Whoever will take the crown, I will not let you down.

That summer’s gone and all the sun has faded,
Wolves are close and somewhere near I hear the howl,
What if I just decide to run away, never to come back?
Never to come back again, back again?

Don’t worry `bout me, I swear that I`ll do fine,
Just like I did in days when you were mine,
When all the lights have faded, my life gets jaded,
Whoever will take the crown, I will not let you down,
Won’t let you down.
Track Name: Leaving Ghost Town
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Valley Boys
LYRICS:

Remember time, back when we used to try to get our asses out?
Everything was simple then, now I don’t know a single friend.
I know, I know, I know – I know it’s not your fault,
I know, I know, I know – revenge is getting cold,
Al that was good is now – taking its toll.

Won’t you take me right back to my home,
Back where I’m coming from,
Won’t you take me right back to my hell,
To help me understand why we’re holding on.

You can take the boy out of a valley but never the valley out of a boy,
Takes you back into your life it took you a lifetime to destroy,
Now I’m standing by your side or I’m crying on your grave,
But moving on.

Before you go let me have just one more touch, let me have just one more,
Look into those burning eyes, these streets of fucked up paradise,
Get out, get out, get out – don’t wanna see your face,
Shut up, shut up, shut up – don’t wanna hear your voice,
Fuck it, fuck it, fuck it – let’s bring it on.

Won’t you take me right back to my home,
Back where I’m coming from,
Won’t you take me right back to my hell,
To help me understand why we’re holding on.

You can take the boy out of a valley but never the valley out of a boy,
Takes you back into your life it took you a lifetime to destroy,
Now I’m standing by your side or I’m crying on your grave,
But moving on.

You can take me out of my town but you can’t take my hometown out of me,
Its voices ringing in my head promising to never let me be,
You can take me out of my town but you can’t take my hometown out of me.

You can take the boy out of a valley but never the valley out of a boy,
Takes you back into your life it took you a lifetime to destroy,
No we’re standing by your side or we‘re spitting on your grave,
And we’re moving on.
Track Name: No Way Out
I see you standing on the other side,
And I don’t know how the river’s got so wide,
And they caught you staring straight into the sun,
The cleansing of the water’s just begun, you better run!

What if there’s no real difference between right and wrong?
What if you’re still out of tune singing the same old song?
But now who is the saviour and who crucifies?
The answer I can see it in your eyes.

Right now, where do I follow to when I’m cursed by all the things I do?
Don’t wanna sell my soul.
Right now if this is all I’ve ever done, then this is all that I will ever do,
This shit pulled me through.

The scary tall dark figure on your holy ground,
Still stands alone and doesn’t make a sound,
But now it’s your regret and it’s been made out of lies,
It faces me and now I realize,

That we’re both still standing on the same old broken shore,
The world around us forces to beg for more,
And you’ve lowered your eyes from the burning sun,
The cleansing of your mind has just begun.

Right now, where do I follow to when I’m cursed by all the things I do?
Don’t wanna sell my soul.
Right now if this is all I’ve ever done, then this is all that I will ever do,
This shit pulled me through.

Right now, when it’s time to go, you’re the only one who runs the show,
Don’t go and waste your time.
After all is said and done, you know there’s no way out to run and hide from yourself,
In the end...
