Track Name: Head Down
Even if it’s not too late
We underrate ourselves
I should have done, I should have tried
Are we afraid to succeed?

One day we’ll stand up and trade
Our last place in the race.
We must look in front of us
To erase this disgrace.

Wake up, wake up before you hit a lower floor
It seems like we don’t know we may die tomorrow.
What could we do to impress?
Should we do more or less?
It seems like we don’t know…

We’re lacking in self-confidence
And it makes the difference
To live up to our goals and our dreams.
But we’re the ones to blame.
Track Name: Touch it, Catch it
To turn your back to them was a priority
To reach your real identity
Through your words we need sincerity
To be sure you won’t sink again in this fake reality, fake reality

Being with us is your fence
Between peace and war
So we won’t let you down
I still believe that a human being can
back to zero, and become a hero

Your life was fight after fight
And pills night after night
Ressources are around you
You got the right to choose
It’s in your hands, you got the plans
Track Name: Sweet Nights
As our last date, we feel the same :
Pressure from friends and family
The punk elite is also listening
And we hope that they appreciate

As yesterday we’re on the stage, playing our songs
Sweet crowd, sweet night we’ll keep in mind these memories

After our set,
We sit on the box and
We wait for fifty bucks,
Thumbs up from the crowd is the real fuel
to fill our car and our hearts
Track Name: Time's Running Out
Will we find the way of pride?
Two hands, two legs, for sure, we stand a chance
Instead of doing nothing, we think we should run a risk
We know we must knock on closed doors

Time’s running out and we’re getting old
So what are we waiting for?
Is this really what we want?
Each of us has to face the reality to choose our own destiny

Tell me why we must follow the trail
Are you afraid to see us fail?
We’re born to live a life in our own way
But we’re bound to our job and our money
For security
Track Name: One of a Kind
Have you ever opened your mind? To think about the magnificence
Of everything that can exist, the mystery persist
In our misunderstood ignorance
But do we have to believe that we are we the only Mankind?

The deal is clear
We all have the gears
To fight for a better world
Not for a "Brave New World"

Even if we feel so small in this unending infinity
We have to face the fact that like the way we act
We’ll confront the irreversibility
And as we can see, everything is lead up to fall

We must consider and remember
That our rationality must be one of a kind
If we continue to lose our mind
Every progress and discovery will be drowned
