Track Name: Defenseless
Looked down, beat up and strung around. Are at the top of the list of anyone, who has fallen victim of ignorant minds. But you're mislead my friend and this story I have to tell. Let's rewind our history and you will find men like these. Flows through his veins, flows through her veins, flows through your veins, flows through my veins, flows through our veins. Fear flows through his veins, but he won't be, he won't be put to shame. This man now shakes in the ground he stands. Under pressure no one seems to understand. Once he stood up, he put everything to end. Years of misery and all their false pretends. Sooner or later they thought that he would bend. But oh surprise, we call this inner strength. This time you won't be defenseless. Actions speak louder than words that are senseless.
Track Name: Take The First Step
I still refuse to accept the way they want me to live. Yet I haven't found a word to describe what this could be. So I take, take, take the first step. Take, take, take the first step. Constantly searching for a better place. Where can we find true happiness? Modern life is modern slavery. Is there such thing as liberty? Working hard with sweat in our face. Our eyes are witnesses of a disgrace. And still we wait for someone to change what all united we could embrace. What are you waiting to set this off? Take the first step and the rest will follow. Stand united in this daily struggle. Teach your wisdom, set a good example. Give some hope to this heart that's hollow.
Track Name: Woman Of Her Word
Brought to this world by the love in your heart. No second thoughts on that choice in your life. Brought to this world by the love in your heart. No second thoughts on that choice in your life. Through the hardest times you got me back up on my feet. When I was wrong you taught me right so I could give the best of me. My true secret keeper and my loyal best friend. Woman of her word my trust in you until the end. Now this person that you once held in your hands walks on his own two feet. I'm sorry if I ever let you down. If my decisions make you mad. It's time to fall and rise and follow my own path. Through the hardest times you got me back up on my feet. When I was wrong you taught me right so I could give the best of me. I have come to realize that at the end because of you I've become who I am today. Because of you I've learned from my mistakes. Because of you life is simpler with you by my side. Because of you something inside me known as pride. Mother, sister, daughter and a wife, you'll always be my partner, partner in crime.
Track Name: Battleship
The sun sets like everyday. Since this day it won't be the same. Now don't worry, this won't cloud my way. This battleship now holds my name. And as you look for someone to blame, you'll find yourself being the same. All those thoughts will be in vain. This battleship now holds my name. And as you try and ask yourself why. Your bombs won't get to me. They make no damage, they make no harm. A solid structure is in front of me. And I sail in the open sea. The open sea of possibilities. No turning back, forward is all I see. Embark upon my life's journey. This ship will never sink. This ship will never sink. This is our battleship. This ship will never sink. This is our battleship. This ship will never sink. This is our battleship.
Track Name: People Never Change
One, two, three, for the hidden inside themselves. Flooded by these thoughts in my head. I drown myself once again. Act by impulse, can't get things straight. There's something hidden, there's another face. Flooded by these thoughts in my head. I drown myself once again. Act by impulse, can't get things straight. There's something hidden, there's another face. Hard to think that it would come to this. Someone told me that people always change. Hard to think that it would come to this. Someone told me that people always change. You've tried to try and you failed again. Don't fool yourself, you know it's in, it's in your veins. Hurt the ones that truly care for you. Love the ones that turn back and laugh at you. Mixed emotions, always changing attitude. Claustrophobic yet you hide yourself in a shell. You can change your social status. You can change your physical appearance. You might even change from left to right. But what's inside will always remain the same. Human being above it all. Human being above it all. Human being above it all. Human being above it all. Never change.
Track Name: Mi Alrededor, Mi Realidad
Veo lo que pasa a mi alrededor, todo ha cambiado ya sin razón. Pierdo la esperanza de un mañana mejor. Y me vuelvo uno más del puto montón. Como un golpe a la cara, recibí todo esto que no esperaba. La verdad estaba ahí aunque no la buscara. Cada vez más el piso encontraba y tocaba. Yo como tú, intenté un día culpar a todo aquel que intentara mi camino cruzar. Pero es parte de la vida el sufrir y triunfar. El subir y bajar. Y la respuestas buscar. Hoy estoy frente a la realidad, el pasado es pasado, no lo puedo cambiar. Hoy estoy frente a la realidad, el futuro es incierto, en mis manos estará.
Track Name: To Lie Was Your Game
I've lived with your lies far too many long. You disguised your intentions, but they were clear all along. I'm disgusted by your actions, but they were clear all along. So many times you fell and I was there when you needed a friend. I didn't know who I was counting on. I was just kidding myself. You live for you. You don't have room for friends. Now your words fall into deaf ears. Your crooked smile into falling tears. You gave bad name to your fucking name. And now I know that to lie was your game. And now I know that to lie was your game. To lie was your game. Shut the fuck up. Your lies will bring you down. Now you see you're close to the end. No escaping now. Not this time you hypocrite. Can't change what's inside of me. You made your fucking mistake. Your lies will bring you down. All you gave was a stab in the back. All you gave was a stab in the back. All you gave was a stab in the back.
Track Name: 365
Back to the start again. But every time I'm closer to the end. Done pretending that I will ever meet your expectations or what you want from me. So what if I failed. So what if you did. I will strive for success as long as I can breathe. 365 opportunities to make things right. Letting go of everything that has held me back. And holding on to anything that brought me here. Letting go of everything that has held me back. And holding on to anything that brought me here. Show me what you have done. Show me what you have done. Show me what you have done. Show me what you have done. You were so quick to tell me what I haven't in a given time. The clock is ticking my life away. And life becomes of memories of what could've been. Back to the start again. But every time I'm closer to the end. Done pretending that I will ever meet your expectations or what you want from me. What you want from me.
