Track Name: So Long
So long

Kill, kill, kill, is the aim that is proclaimed War has been declared
There’s no survivor in this game All doomed in the end
Old, young, male and female, it’s all the same, its helpless targets
Millions of prey will pass away

Who's to blame when you're disarmed to fight pain? Battle’s unfair, there’s no happy end
It took my child, my love away and soon enough it will catch me
If god exists, please let me know what it means
You can pray, you can pay, but your loved ones will die anyway

The fight is lost before it started No matter the therapy
When the disease strikes with no mercy You can’t be saved by the chemistry µYou can’t escape your destiny, just a number among the casualties
It crushes you insidiously, no one has found a remedy

Struggle in vain, then believe again. This vicious enemy has come to get you
Silent, hidden, this shit will only take, the best of you, the best of you
It will never leave you alone Like your own shadow, worse than thousands of black widows
Nothing but skin and bones, a damn scarecrow, weakened before the deathblow

Who’s the next in line in this death row, Here comes the deadline the countdown ends now
And you fell apart Too soon, too fast It stopped your heart, destroyed you at last
Rest in Peace Now you've been released You will be missed Forever be missed
Rest in Peace Now you've been released Forever, Forever
Track Name: On The Ground
On the ground

Just one more shot, strong like a bomb, I've only one knee on the ground
With or without, I’m already drowned
I hit the bottle, ease the pain, forget the troubles of my soul,
Facing the wall once again, I feel like I’ve lost control

… I never thought I’d get so low
Day after day, I sink How could I let all my dreams go?
Sip after sip I swear to quit Can’t crawl out of this hole I fell into
Some choose to live, I chose to drink

I just can't stop. Booze makes me blind I can’t restrain myself
I’m not so fine when reality comes to my mind
I’d truly love to free myself and start it all over again All over again
But I confess I’m not against just one last glass to kill the night

So long so wrong I built my own tomb that’s all I’ve done, see what I’ve become
Can’t count the tears I spent to drink They’re lost forever in the sink

Day after day, I sink My will is strong but my body’s weak
Sip after sip I swear to quit Take me out, show me the exit
Shut off my thirst before I’m dust Calm down the beast, break the habit
May I have one for the road ?
Track Name: Electricity
Electricity

Life is short, life is now, what you reap is what you sow
It may take years to understand, because things never go as planned
Don't be fooled, you've been schooled, the media spread lies
Don’t be surprised! I think it’s time for you to realize
Laziness is killing you smoothly,
Too many years wasted in front of the screen.
Think for yourself, don’t swallow their stories Read more books and throw your tv out!

Change the channel, do your own thing
Turn off the radio and live for real
The clock is ticking, my friend, the night comes to an end, another day in vain Again and again
Time flows, no procrastination, Action Reaction, two different options

This whole system’s built to keep you enslaved Then they make believe that they make the war for peace
So question everything, all information is biased Complete the puzzle, some pieces are missing
Misinformation is a common weapon, mass alienation is called communication
So stop watching it, and get up from your seat! Do things for real, you won’t be deceived!

There are so many facts that you can't deny
You’re only good to buy, you’re hypnotized
The tv stupefies. Wake up, open your eyes Manipulated, like if you’ve been blinded
You’ve better things to do than waiting to die Cut down the puppets’ strings
Change the channel Turn off the radio and live for real
Time flows, no procrastination Do your own thing and live for real
Track Name: Wildcats Paradise
Wildcats paradise

I am so wild that I can’t be tamed, a tormented soul not for sale,
Excuse me baby I can't be chained, so I wrote this song to explain
Got so many troubles that they can't be named, I’m not easy to understand,
Misanthropist I must admit but I am working on it
My heart is filled with sorrow, inside tears flow But I have never shown
I’m lonely but glad to be free, don’t stick with me, you’ll never catch me

You’d better be reckless I’m not easily impressed
I want you to know, I'm cynical, too critical, and hard to control
We all have our faults, be patient and lenient, meet me
in my wildcats paradise

I’m sensitive, not negative That's what I will try to make you believe
Wistful feelings torment my dreams I try to forget and even to forgive
Living with me ain't easy. I need to learn diplomacy
Like a fine wine I get better with age, but for some things, I can’t turn the page

You’d better be reckless I’m not easily impressed
I want you to know, I'm cynical, too critical, and hard to control

I’m torn apart, I feel so sick inside, I’m all worn out, so please stand by my side
I’ll take you for an introspective ride, you might find out the secrets that I hide

You’d better be reckless, I’m not easily impressed
I want you to know, I'm cynical, too critical, and hard to control
We all got our faults, be patient and lenient
Meet me in my wildcats paradise
