INTRO 01:17
Welcome scars behind the bars and every renegade Welcome flags, welcome fires, get along forever Welcome rich, welcome priest, you're no more than zeros Welcome kings, you're gonna kneel before workin' class heroes

GOOD TIMES 02:42
It´s Sunday night for everybody But I´m living on a Friday afternoon I feel relaxed and motivated Don´t give a shit about I should do Let´s have some beers, one or a hundred Commemorate that we´re still alive Let´s have some herbs and live like gamblers And celebrate that one day we will die COME AND SHARE YOUR GOOD TIMES COME AND SHARE YOUR BAD TIMES COME AND SHARE YOUR GOOD TIMES ´CAUSE WE DON´T CARE ABOUT YOU COME AND SHARE MY GOOD TIMES COME AND SHARE MY BAD TIMES COME AND SHARE MY GOOD TIMES ´CAUSE YOU DON´T CARE ABOUT ME You´re not allowed to wish or linger ´cause none our hearts is free from scars Our faces get plenty of wrinkles And that means that we lived our only chance It´s time to cry and rise up glasses It´s time to sing and shake the blues away It´s time to dance and move our asses And to congratulate on our mistakes CHORUS And if you work tomorrow morning tell your boss to go to hell And if you´re rushing the bartender you can fall into the well And if you don´t know how to play you can sing and clap your hands And if you think that we´re all crazy you should take a look at yourself

UNWANTED 02:32
Do you feel lonesome and lost? Do you have something to mend? I Know how you feel, son Don´t give me an answer yet I´ll offer you everything But remember you shall not want I can promise honor and glory But you should never fall No one controls your life Nobody but yourself You can give your own opinions You can vote and demonstrate Don´t dare to look at your shepherd The herd has the same needs We all have same opportunities Anyone can succeed LET´S GO DOWN BY THE RIVER AND DOWN BY THE RIVER WE´LL CRY DOWN BY THE RIVER, DON´T ASK WHY Don´t you think you´re not important I can make you feel secure I can control your fortune It´s something you can´t refuse Now, are these things so important That they stress you out and overwhelm? Looking for your own salvation You´ll feel like an unwanted man LET´S GO DOWN BY THE RIVER AND DOWN BY THE RIVER WE´LL CRY DOWN BY THE RIVER, DON´T ASK WHY LET´S GO DOWN BY THE RIVER YOU´LL FEEL LIKE AN UNWANTED MAN DOWN BY THE RIVER WE WILL DIE

FATHER 02:55
Father, I've been murdered For the glory of a nation and its faith Mother, I just wonder What's the sense of a war with so much pain I've been caught Put against the wall Now I'm a'waitin' to be shot Father, I've been murdered For the glory of a nation and its faith Mother, I just wonder What's the sense of a war with so much pain They had failed There's blood on my face I´m about to get the shot of grace Father, I've been murdered For the glory of a nation and its shame Mother, I just wonder What's the sense of a war with so much pain Father, don't be bothered You don't have to cry for me Mother, don't buy flowers It ain't in heaven where we meet

MAYBE WHAT YOU SEE IS THAT YOU´RE FADING AWAY THAT YOU´RE FADING AWAY LIKE THE RAIN I´M CALLING OUT YOUR NAME AND I DON´T WANT YOU TO CHANGE I DON´T WANT YOU TO CHANGE YOU JUST COME WITH YOUR MISTAKES The walls are narrow but you got a roof A roof as high as all your dreams You lost some colors but still you can paint in blue You ain´t got no shoes but you can feel the ground Don´t have a canvas but a brand new wall You stay so silent but still you know you can shout Still you know you can shout… MAYBE WHAT YOU SEE IS THAT YOU´RE FADING AWAY THAT YOU´RE FADING AWAY LIKE THE RAIN I´M CALLING OUT YOUR NAME AND I DON´T WANT YOU TO CHANGE I DON´T WANT YO TO CHANGE YOU JUST COME WITH YOUR MISTAKES You have been hurt but scars are memories Memories painted on your skin The weather´s been changing but now you feel you can breathe The way is steep but you can feel the breeze With rains and suns you see the rainbows You ain´t got no hopes but now I know you follow your dreams I know you follow your dreams I know you´re following your dreams MAYBE WHAT YOU SEE IS THAT YOU´RE FADING AWAY THAT YOU´RE FADING AWAY LIKE THE RAIN I´M CALLING OUT YOUR NAME AND I DON´T WANT YOU TO CHANGE I DON´T WANT YO TO CHANGE YOU JUST COME YOUR WAY

Here it comes the welfare state army They carry the law in their hands Among them the banker is laughing The town hall is run by his friends Politicians are turning a blind eye While artists have been put in jail Mind-controlled the audience decided The gallows look down on men Madame Goldie and the Bishop are chatting About moral and self-indulgence As she smiles he gazes at her husband Heaven is now in her breasts Business men are pleasantly attending A patrol is hangin' around Local heroes are hiding their savings They know they will never be found While the high class is having a good time Pickpockets are given free reign Homeless men are paying the full price Of choosing not being slaves Now the justice can see but your moral is blind But as far as you win you must be satisfied Welcome to Old Goswell Town This is Old Goswell Town
7.
I feel fine with you but we both know that I live without you too It´s something that we never knew Yes, I thought it would be solved when we get old, yeah, but now I Know I will always be like that Yes I know who I am when the night´s long on my way back home I grab the truth with my hands alone I think in a good way, I try to let me be ´cause I ain´t upset no more I leave you so you can live on your own I love you so I leave you so you can live on your own

Well I have been my whole life in this town that never changed I spent so many years working for someone I don´t know It´s said I can´t complain ´cause I get fifty bucks a day And that´s enough to keep payin´ my loan One day I had a vision while I worked under the sun I saw myself in that right place and diggin´ my own grave But now I´ve got no worries, no more bullets in my gun I won´t stay where my hopes are dashed away I DON´T WANNA BE SO DOCILE, NOTHING VENTURED NOTHING GAINED IF NOTHING REALLY EXCITING COMES MY WAY INSTEAD I RATHER RISK ALTHOUGHT I KNOW THAT I CAN FAIL AND FEEL THE WINDS HITTING MY FACE I left my house wide open and I went to meet my fate I walked a thousand hills and beauteous valleys on my own I felt myself released knowing that I was never late And any interesting spot could be my home I made myself a promise there won´t be no turning back Just wanna face the consequences of feeling alive There´s gonna be no lies ´cause I´m not wearing any masks I leave my problems and my faith behind I DON´T WANNA BE SO DOCILE, NOTHING VENTURED NOTHING GAINED IF NOTHING REALLY EXCITING COMES MY WAY INSTEAD I RATHER RISK ALTHOUGHT I KNOW THAT I CAN FAIL AND FEEL THE WINDS HITTING MY FACE

The ones that earn and spend the most Encourage you to be austere and prevent The leeches of banks are suckin´ your blood The filthy companies will get what they deserve The ones that I chose to serve and protect Are violating my rights in my face, I wonder why The ones who wave the flag of truth Are often the ones that pretend and tell you lies AND I DON´T KNOW WHY YOU´RE ALWAYS GOIN´ WITH THE FLOW AND I DON´T KNOW HOW TO LIVE UNDER CONTROL AND I DON´T KNOW HOW TO ROAM AGAINST THE FUCKIN´ FLOW AND I DON´T KNOW WHAT THE HELL IS GOIN´ ON My hair is gray and my mood is acid Am I maturing? Let me do it on my own Don´t try to tell me what I have to do Get out and fuck you ´cause I´m doing what I want AND I DON´T KNOW WHY YOU´RE ALWAYS GOIN´WITH THE FLOW AND I DON´T KNOW HOW TO LIVE UNDER CONTROL AND I DON´T KNOW HOW TO ROAM AGAINST THE FUCKIN´FLOW AND I DON´T KNOW WHAT THE HELL IS GOIN´ON

FRANCESCA 04:05
He was travelling and arrived in Southern Europe She had to work since daddy passed away He had nothing but his hands They could hardly understand what the other said But the ways of life are sometimes so capricious They felt like one within the other's arms So they jumped at the chance Of forgetting the past and going ahead THEY DISCOVERED THE PLEASURES OF LIFE TILL DEAD DO THEM PART AND ALL THE RICHNESS AND TREASURES WERE NOTHING COMPARED TO THEIR LUCK SHE USED TO THINK HOW IT HAPPENED WAS LIKE A LIGHT IN THE DARK AND NOW SHE WAITS IN THE GARDEN FOR THE DAY THAT HE WOULD BE BACK He departed on a bright and sunny Sunday He dried her tears and promised he'd return But the borders nowadays Are the ones that keep away the common sense THEY DISCOVERED THE PLEASURES OF LIFE TILL DEAD DO THEM PART AND ALL THE RICHNESS AND TREASURES WERE NOTHING COMPARED TO THEIR LUCK SHE USED TO THINK HOW IT HAPPENED WAS LIKE A LIGHT IN THE DARK AND NOW SHE WAITS IN THE GARDEN FOR THE DAY THAT HE WOULD BE BACK

KELLEY CREEK 02:45
He was not a Shoshone and he never did that He never killed that poor man He had to run away with his small band He's red-skinned outlaw and he's bound to head south To northern Nevada The reserve was the one and only chance HE PICKED CLEAN THE BODIES HE SUDDENLY THOUGHT THAT THE SNOW AND THE KELLEY CREEK WATERS WOULD DO THE JOB AND THEY STARTED TO RUN DOWN SOUTH BUT HE MADE A MISTAKE, HE KNEW WHILE HE RODE 'CAUSE HE KILLED THE FOUR SHEPHERDS 1, 2, 3, 4! WRONG! 'Cause when hunger strikes and the winter hits hard The rich men goods must be despoiled And the cattle was living out there While they butchered the pieces a man called Indiano Reported the cattle lost, And went to town and came back with three men HE PICKED CLEAN THE BODIES HE SUDDENLY THOUGHT THAT THE SNOW AND THE KELLEY CREEK WATERS WOULD DO THE JOB AND THEY STARTED TO RUN DOWN SOUTH BUT HE MADE A MISTAKE, HE KNEW WHILE HE RODE 'CAUSE HE KILLED THE FOUR SHEPHERDS 1, 2, 3, 4! WRONG!

Long ago the northern seas had an only ruler All the pirates of the sea knew they couldn´t fool her To fill her hands with gold that was her desire Known among the English men as the queen of pirates Fearless, strong and tough like no other sailor The bald queen called herself “Nurse of all rebellions” As her long fair hair could be caught in ship´s ropes Gràinne Mhaol cut her mane to get away from sea shores Far from surrender and bow before the queen of England Stood up and claimed her rights and her children freedom The seas are not for men but for those who have the most guts Skulls and crossbones flags when she´s going homewards Long ago the northern seas had an only ruler All the pirates of the sea knew they couldn´t fool her To fill her hands with gold that was her desire Known among the English men as the queen of pirates Fearless, strong and tough like no other sailor The bald queen called herself “Nurse of all rebellions”

I always shoulder your burden You elbow me aside I am an angel I could forgive your lies I've been so kind and peaceful You used to twist the knife I am the devil You're gonna pay for that AND I TRY TO GET OVER IT BUT THIS TIME YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT I WON'T SWALLOW MY PRIDE I should relax and calm down / should I relax and calm down? But I can't control my mind / I can control your mind Am I a psycho? Don't say I must think twice AND I TRY TO GET OVER IT BUT THIS TIME YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT I WON'T SWALLOW MY PRIDE Sometimes I lose my temper Sometimes what´s not legal is fair Moral is simply stronger It's just a matter of respect I always shoulder your burden, You used to twist the knife I'm just so human… You're gonna pay for that AND I TRY TO GET OVER IT BUT SOMETIMES I COULD SAY THAT I TRY TO GET OVER IT BUT SOMETIMES I COULD SAY THAT HATIN' IS ALRIGHT

That's the way everything goes It's something we cannot avoid Time keeps on tickin' It's too fast to skip it But that's the way everything goes This is the way it's always been We're taken to our fate by the wrist We can't decide it But we keep on struggling But this is the way it's always been AND THE RAINY DAYS ALWAYS REMAIN IN MY MEMORIES BUT THE STARRY NIGHTS ALWAYS REMAIN IN MY HEART
