Track Name: Old Smiles, Old Names
Yet you looked just like a friend

Parties and dinners without any cracks
Sure, that period was a blast

We called our names and put a smile in ‘em

Our words were always clear

Straight to the point, WE’d never cheat a friend
Sure, you carried as a fake

We called your name and put a smile in it

Olds Smiles, Old Names

What we said was what we did

Things you pretend, Things that we deeply meant

Not a choice that we regret

We called your name, but you were just a fake
You were just a fake

Come away from that thick fog

At least until the light keeps showing you around
Just the ground where you walk on

will only tell you if their justice is right

Come away from that frame we don’t like
Come away from that scene and don’t mind

Back to your aims
Straight to my aims
Track Name: Once He Left to the Province (feat. The Niro)
Young and clear, He left to the province

A “job” in wait, it was more than a surname

The family he left, his old city and his old friends
But he had his shell: his wife and his firm strenght

Sounds like said: I wish I were like him
Sounds like crass: You’ll never be like him

A factory man, no plush rooms in hotels

He worked like slaves, bringin’ home his own daily bread
He found new friends, made a home for his children

No argument, at the end He’s a good man

Sounds like said: I wish I were like him

Sounds like crass: You’ll never be like him

All my friends, I wish you all the same
Although my mates, there’s no one like my dad

But as a lion He’d jump in the fire

If someone tries to trick his friends

Yet as a Father, He was strict as required
If one of his two kids deserved
IF they deserved
Track Name: Miles Are NOT Right
Far lands charm, callin’ men like bee hives
And the words ran fast, They left you behind

Things that lie, speak the language of eyes
Makes no sense to hide, So give up a try

Tremblin’ with the cold we’d face up
When our paths would split up
To never join back

Tremblin’ since our two worlds met up
Once more for “that” first time
That will never be back

Knew it was hard, yet the callin’ of life
Spoke the words of a drive, To live and not die

Foster that tie, keeps each other alive
And when miles will divide
We’ll know they’re NOT right
Track Name: The Girl in the Dumps
For God’s sake, are you kidding or you’re real
Give yourself a minute to land back on earth
Can’t believe what you’re saying
This is mad, you’re insane

You can’t change that way
From the cradle to a grave

Though I tried to stay, I had to give up

Yet I looked for ways to let your hair down
The girl in the dumps

Tiny yous on parade on red walls at your place
Analyse this please, nothing good can be said
Felt like tread on eggs

Overthink, Overcare
Lived your world with no bridge
Thick, wide walls to defeat

Though I tried to stay, I had to give up

Yet I looked for ways to let your hair down
Even changin’ myself would never be enough
It was way too hard to be in your dumps

In and Out of your life

It was such a winding path
Yet I wish you all the best
For I hope you will be fine
We’d just better be apart
Track Name: From Hero to Zero
Strangers now, things like they’ve never been

It feels like an ocean suddenly disappeared

Unfamiliar now, you walk but you can’t be seen

Yet once those same two eyes, they had nothing to bewitch

From hero to zero, a set route you can’t prevent
When you give what you get but

They can’t get what they’ve asked

I was hero once, whatever I did was clear

I could kill, I could steal but still the best in the ring
I am zero now, minds they change suddenly
Whatever I’ll do now, I’ll always be the worst prick

From hero to zero, a set route you can’t prevent
When you give what you get but

They can’t get what they’ve asked
From hero to zero, a sad route you won’t forget
Well I gave what I had but
I’m a prick that won’t change
Track Name: Copycat Syndrome
Who would’ve ever said

They look like perfect pics of gentlemen
They warm out your full faith

You feel at last you found the rightest man

Tic-toc the sands of time run free

Those restless hands uncover the real thing
You still believe we cannot see

The rotten part you keep beneath your skin

The spleen you fed in me

It makes me feel like I could act like him
The thing is I ain’t that mean

I’d never pay you back with all that shit
We’ll find a better way

To get rid of all the people you reflect

Your time has come
Get off our road
Track Name: Shadow Box
Who would’ve ever said

They look like perfect pics of gentlemen
They warm out your full faith

You feel at last you found the rightest man

Tic-toc the sands of time run free

Those restless hands uncover the real thing
You still believe we cannot see

The rotten part you keep beneath your skin

The spleen you fed in me

It makes me feel like I could act like him
The thing is I ain’t that mean

I’d never pay you back with all that shit
We’ll find a better way

To get rid of all the people you reflect

Your time has come
Get off our road
Track Name: Teachers Won't Learn
I don’t wanna learn

I just don’t wanna throw away my time
All I want is chase that paper

I paid stiff to buy

I ain’t gonna leave

If you’re not doing the dirty work fine
I just want to reap the fruit

That I bought so high-priced

Let’s not pretend to be

Much better than it is

You can pay for your degrees
But not for good breeding

Noone else as bad as some teachers

Who soon forget their own role and their mission
Noone else as base as some teachers

Who don’t embrace their real job and their mission

I don’t wanna work

I just don’t wanna throw away more time
All I want is show that paper

Pretending it’s mine
I ain’t gonna live

If you don’t do the job that was mine
You must work as my slave

‘Cause I paid the due price
Track Name: And You Talk Down to
Talking down to the man fixing up your car
Talking down to the waitress at the pub
Talking down to the salesgirl at the mall
Talking down to world ‘cause it spins around

Holy crap, why don't you just try and chill out
You just wanna live on but you're never nice

Talking down to your mates 'till you make them cry
Talking down to the ones they once made you high
Talking down to your friends 'cause they changed a lot
Talking down to the world 'cause it's a bad spot

Sometimes we feel like little kids
Playing with magical toys
Track Name: All My Duds
It’s always been clear from the start
You said that you could, but you can’t
Likes of grandads at the park

You move but you’re rooted like mast

You fight with the waves that your loved ones create
You’ll finally find out your life is in someone else hands

You blew all the chances you got
You said that you would but you don’t

I would do, I really would
But my words, my purpose I will never keep
I’d be there, I really care
But my words, my purpose
Can’t always be true

I’ll leave to the world my duds
While dreaming of different facts
I’ll see what you can’t find out
My world is built on the sand
