112 Days

Solitude seeking I spent my days
No alternatives at all but my way
I´m just a travelling guy who passes you by and you´ll never see again
It is not that I haven´t tried
Long ago I started to die
Now leaving that place to that open space brought me back to life

For 112 days I found peace of mind
For 112 days my soul was enshrined
For 112 days I….. survived

I was restless already in my younger days
Wandered around in this desperate maze
Till I cut off all the strings spread my wings and learned how to fly
Burned all bridges without exception
Tired of societies´ constant deception
Pure and alone, true on my own, I let the days go by

For 112 days I found peace of mind
For 112 days my soul was enshrined
For 112 days I….. survived

As I´m lying here on my deathbed, sick and cold and scared
I carve these words in the wood: Happiness only real when shared!

Danny

Danny came home from the war the only property his soul
Never needed much to live and most of it he stole
When Pilon crossed his path it was a momentum of its own
How they made their days remains unknown

Pilon´s guilty conscious bothered him every day
Since he lived in Danny´s house near Monterey bay
Inherited from a relative Danny never knew
On the win and loss of property they grew

Danny oh Danny guide us through the night
We stray around until the early morning light
We got two gallons of wine and some more stories to tell
We´re just some paisanos on the way to hell

In return of many favors Pilon supplied some wine
On the way home freezing shivers went down his spine
He´d drink just a zip or two Danny would understand
He arrived at the house an empty bottle in his hand

Danny oh Danny guide us through the night
We stray around until the early morning light
We got two gallons of wine and some more stories to tell
We´re just some paisanos on the way to hell

Resolutions were made a new one every day
Like sinners they confess to sins but don´t honestly pray
The indeed good intentions never came to life
End this farce and cut this burden of my life

Danny oh Danny guide us through the night
We stray around until the early morning light
We got two gallons of wine and some more stories to tell
We´re just some paisanos on the way to hell!

3MR

When i was young I used to put my record straight
I sang along to every song
It took me away, cut some place, place on my own
till my mom came calling me home
I wish these times never be gone
Back in school things messed , I can say
I ran away like Bobby Jean
I had my music, had my dreams to take me away
people kept telling me: „you live a dream“
your talking never made sense to me

I never tried to be smart nor to be cool
I learned more from a THREE MINUTE RECORD
than I ever learned in school!
I bet you cannot understand for you’re a fool
I learned more from a THREE MINUTE RECORD
than I ever learned in school!

Years passed by, I grew up, times have changed
but one thing just stayed the same
I caught my kid sneaking around the record store
trying to find some peace of mind
I confess it made me smile

I never tried to be smart nor be cool
I learned more from a THREE MINUTE RECORD
than I ever learned in school!
I bet you cannot understand for you’re a fool
I learned more from a THREE MINUTE RECORD
than I ever learned in school!

What I had was what I got, on 45 I’m on fire
and this wrong felt so right, Baby,
nothing could take us higher …

I never tried to be smart nor be cool
I learned more from a THREE MINUTE RECORD
than I ever learned in school!
I bet you cannot understand for you’re a fool
I learned more from a THREE MINUTE RECORD
than I ever learned in school!

Into The Wild

I donated all my money and I burned all my cash
When my life and its defaults finally crashed
it lurked for quite some time, now it broke free
the call of the wild took over me

it wasn´t hard at all to leave the crazy breed
we didn´t have much on which we agreed
now I shake that weight of my shoulders
feels like growing but not getting older

I head off into the wild with nothing but my thoughts by my side
I head off into the wild out of the darkness into the light

They keep on living, just living their lies
Return it all to sender it is not for my eyes
I don´t need a new thing, no I don´t need another thing
Kill this false being within

I head off into the wild with nothing but my thoughts by my side
I head off into the wild out of the darkness into the light

Freedom around me, freedom inside me
Leave me all alone is my only plea
When I don´t move there is no sound…

Stronghold

As a broken man he stands on this snowy bridge tonight
Fist in his pocket and tears in his eyes
“This world would be better without me” screaming in the wind
“Take my live and let me suffer for I´m the one who sinned”

“All I wanted to do is to vanish with you and shake off the dust
of these small town streets, walk as along as our feet can carry us

This life´s worth living I´ve been told
This life´s worth living love is a stronghold”

Prayers and thoughts illuminate the blackest of all nights
the time has yet not come to hear the last rites
George you know don´t you throw your precious life away
Lives are related, without you Falls is threatened by decay

“All I wanted to do is to vanish with you and shake off the dust
of these small town streets, walk as along as our feet can carry us

This life´s worth living I´ve been told
This life´s worth living love is a stronghold”

Hear poor Harry´s cries
Mr. Gower´s gonna die
your mom will be alone
there are tears in Mary´s eyes ….

This life´s worth living I´ve been told
This life´s worth living love is a stronghold”

The Mine

Every day the whistle calls out for my shift to begin
Dirt of past and present under my nails and skin
My pals and I go down into the mine
For weeks none of us have seen the sunshine

Down in the mine
Down in the mine
Life and death walk nearby
Down in the mine
Down in the mine
Too many good fellows died
Down in the mine
We dream of open fields under blue skies

We came along here quite some time ago
Just when coal mining was about to grow
With nothing but our souls in our possession
After years of unemployment we had a mission

Down in the mine
Down in the mine
Life and death walk nearby
Down in the mine
Down in the mine
Too many good fellows died
Down in the mine
We dream of open fields under blue skies

Wrong Boy

I swear it was not attempted suicide
I just had to take the ride
Down, down, down, down on the ground
He was waiting there just to be found
In the canal where it all began
The truth just slipped through my hands
The boy who I no longer am – no longer am

I´m a misfit I´m walking my way on my own
I´m a misfit I´m walking my way on my own
Just struggling to be the right one
But I´m not

I was suspended from school
All my life I was taking for a fool
More than once we had to move away
My mom just couldn´t stand the pain
We became the shame of the neighborhood
´causeI couldn´t be the boy I should
The boy  who I no longer am – no longer am

I´m a misfit I´m walking my way on my own
I´m a misfit I´m walking my way on my own
Just struggling to be the right one
But I´m not

Looked up in their mental dungeon
No knowledge of the songs I sang
Forced me in the role I am playing
Still not believing a thing that I say
Mutants bore me to death
Mutants bore me to death

I´m a misfit I´m walking my way on my own
I´m a misfit I´m walking my way on my own
Just struggling to be the right one
But I´m not

Coldblooded Kate

She senses every fiber of her being
As the street seems to devour her
Kate is on her own since she´s on the run
And her surrounding is a blur
Cognition multiplied and distorted
Nevertheless she moves on
Accustomed the to the pain she feels every day from dusk till dawn

Oh Kate stand strong
Proof they all have been wrong

Kate stay relentless like you do
Hang in there and focus on the goal
Kate stay relentless like you do
Hang in there with your body and soul

Gentle as a dove and skin so fair
Endless legs waiting for release
A pretty picture for sure it was
As she stood there in the morning breeze
Cognition multiplied and distorted
Nevertheless she moves on
Accustomed the to the pain she feels every day from dusk till dawn

Oh Kate stand strong
Proof they all have been wrong

Kate stay relentless like you do
Hang in there and focus on the goal
Kate stay relentless like you do
Hang in there with your body and soul

At the end we´ll sing and dance the Sheridan Shuffle
When we´re in New York we´ll sing and dance the Sheridan Shuffle
At the end we´ll sing and dance the Sheridan Shuffle
And Fred Astair will sing and dance the Sheridan Shuffle

Kate stay relentless like you do
Hang in there and focus on the goal
Kate stay relentless like you do
Hang in there with your body and soul

Young & Wild

Well we know each other since back in high school
We didn’t give a damn when the others called us fools
We were 4 of a kind we were from the same blood
We were the once who still stood strong after the great flood

We didn´t just grew up together, man, we raised each other
We swore nobody could end it baby, this band of brothers
It was easy and clear to see we´d once rule the world
But in a wink of an eye our plans were nothing but hurled

Remember when we were young and wild
Remember baby when we were young and wild
We were young and wild
Remember baby when we were young and wild

We  lived for today, no sorrow, enjoyed our freedom
Didn’t waste a minute thinking ´bout there were other time to come
Those Saturday nights we spent all night out drinking
No we´re sitting here just you and me and we keep on thinking

About when we were young and wild
Remember baby when we were young and wild
We were young and wild
Remember baby when we were young and wild

Broken hearts and love in vein
Hangovers on weekdays
Skipped classes, travelin´ around
We weren´t bound

Remember when we were young and wild
Remember baby when we were young and wild
We were young and wild
Remember baby when we were young and wild

All My Heroes Are Gone (Part II)

As a kid I used to dream
With sparkling eyes focused on the screen
I travelled through time and history
And learned something out of each and every story

I was told values
And what it would be like if I walked in your shoes
There’s a time to cry
But soon a smile brings back the wrinkles to your eyes

And all my heroes are gone
And all my heroes are gone
Battles were lost and battles were won
And all my heroes are gone

As a kid I used to scream
At the top of my voice against the mainstream
With my heroes I sang along
With a heart and a soul and believe so strong

With all my might I hold on
To keep old values distinguish right from wrong
Johnny said I’ve to walk the line
And we’ll meet again at a place so divine

And all my heroes are gone
And all my heroes are gone
Battles were lost and battles were won
And all my heroes are gone

… Gone …
