Track Name: On the Road
On the Road

Last night I went from the west to the east side
to find whatever that would make me believe.
Instead I found this girl I knew I'd be stupid to please.


She said "Come here pretty. Give heat to me, sweetheart"
I am so tired of what girls have for needs.
"I'd rather go, it's kind of late and I'm falling asleep"

Should I go for it?
What's the time 'cause I can't hesitate?
Another way to play a game that's been always the same.


There's something wrong about her and I can't say I'm surprised.
She tried to tease me and I couldn't realize

That I'm falling again.
Things were really starting to make some sense,
now it's useless to try and go away.
Why can't she change her idiotic lies and pre-established ways?
now i've noticed I'm fucked in every way.

She's a trip to the edge but I couldn't control her.
I now regret all of the things that I did.
I always think before I talk but I say what I think.

I said "I love your pretentious ways to get us laid, hun
and that we barely had some minutes to speak"
She looked at me and held my hand as we walked down the street.
Track Name: Wicked Game
Wicked Game

Once, I met a girl who was afraid
She grabbed my hand and said
“I’m going to kill myself,
And I want you to witness it!”
She pulled a gun and
blew her brains out
Right in front of me.


Days came, seasons changed,
Blood and brains all over my face
I hate knowing her name,
Knowing that someday I might
As well blow my brains out
Next to someone else's face
It’s like a wicked game we play,
But we can only play it once


Once, I met a boy who wasn't afraid
He was just insane, he jumped off a building
After Landing on his face he said, something about a game
I couldn't hear because of the screams
Track Name: Pretend
Pretend

You know, I once met a girl
who was afraid to be blamed.
At better times she would laugh
but now she only complains
that it is never enough,
she's always wanted some more.
So I lied.


The only reason I see
for her to pack up and leave,
is when I told her to let
whatever happens to be.
But now she says that I'm wrong.
She deviates from the path
that we sought.


So I guess I never wanted to believe
when she said she wouldn't leave me alone again.
I tried too hard and now she's only wasting my time.
And you think you're always right, but you can' get it.
You try, you just forget that I'm trying to go away
and I'm never coming back.


Now can you blame it on me?
The way we've watched on TV.
She runs away like they said
but I just cannot believe
that she's stubborn enough
to just pretend that I'm lost
when I'm not.


I'll never be what she wants.
Although I was willing to try,
it's just absurd to pretend
that she can learn from the past.
I love the things she dislikes.
I guess she'll never be what
I want.
Track Name: Over the Years
Over the Years

When it's night for you
it is day for me but we
talk at noon.

Happiness
will change it all
And make us fools

Over the years
we sing and pray
for honest days.
You will hear me
say I wont forget
your name.
That’s a promise
I cannot keep

And all our memories
turn into fantasies
The past is distorted
by our feelings.

Near or far ,
we try so hard to be apart
loneliness it’s not so bad,
when your on my mind.

For the love i have for you
I’ll say it's all ok
When we really are not going
to be together again.

Over the years
we sing and pray
for honest days.
You will hear me
say I wont forget
your name.
That’s a promise
I cannot keep
Well that's a promise
that I cannot keep.
Track Name: T.V.
T.V.

There is something going on
The shadows in my eyes are gone
I turn around and see your face,
Horrible without the haze


Nose job, fake breasts,
You sounded like a pretty girl,
isn't that what I should like?,
What everybody says is right?


And you don't even try to realize
How shallow you really are
That is reality you wont see on TV.
We waste our lives for free.


Sadly while I walk alone
Smiley faces come along
They say they want to be my friends
But they don't even know my name.


No more fakeness
I'm looking for someone to blame
because it's so hard facing that
This neon life is all I got.
Track Name: Laura (Bonus Track)
Laura

Laura you've been good to me
and i have been so mean,
i've never said "i care for you"
so i want you to hear

That my heart and my eyes
keep on turning when you pass
and the lies for wich you've cried
will forever hurt my heart.

Laura you've been sitting here
staring at your feet,
no one dares to make a sound,
they think you are asleep.

But your heart and your eyes
keep forgiving all those lies,
that i've tried to deny
when you asked me sadly, why?

Laura when you look at me
the world stands still.

And my heart and my eyes
keep on turning when you pass
and the lies for wich you've cried
will forever hurt my heart.

But your heart and your eyes
keep forgiving all those lies,
that i've tried to deny
when you asked me sadly, why?

Keep on turning when you pass.
Track Name: You Know Me
You Know Me

We run across the corridor,
we're holding hands, you tell me
"Boy i'll kiss you now or the day I die,
If not today then the day I die"

And walking down that lonely street
we sit outside and by the tree,
you hold my hand and talk about your life
I'm glad to be there, now I'd rather die

And parked outside your house we play
and I pretend we'll never end.
I'm thinking "Boy, now I am so glad,
I'm glad we play and we never fight"

'Cause now without a reason you run far away.
I've felt this way before, I said I'd try and I tried.
I promised to myself to cry another day
but you know me

At the club where people dance
I look around and meet your eyes.
"So tell me darling, tell me what's your name"
I'm glad I didn't look the other way.
