Track Name: Call me lord
We are family, we are friends, we’re born in the same city
Thinking about them under the city lights
It’s time to cherish the older, to wake up the younger
If we stand up, we will be stronger

Looking outside on a sunny day, the birds are flying in the sky
Then I knew that everything’s ok
Here comes the sounds of our lives, it keeps us in the right way
We don’t need shame, we all want the fame

Call me lord, even if I am human,
Cuz’ of the thing that I said, «The cancer will be beaten»
Call me lord, even if I’m one of yours
Cuz’ of the thing that I said, «The cancer will be beaten»

WOHOHO (x2)

Call me lord, even if I am human,
Cuz’ of the thing I said, «The cancer will be beaten»
Call me lord, even if I’m one of yours
Cuz’ of the thing I said, «The cancer will be beaten»
In my daily and in my dreams, if I fight I’m gonna win,
In my daily and in my dreams...
In our daily and in our dreams, if we fight we’re gonna win
in our daily and in our dreams...

WOHOHO (x3)
In our daily and in our dreams
Track Name: Rock around the clock
We’re leaving for a while. going back on the road
We arrive right on time, there we go
Another night goes wild, morning sun is late on time
We are out for a crime, we’re gonna end up fried

We will come back for more, looking down all the shores
Please girl come aboard, come aboard

I want it up, I want it down, I want it upside down
Rollercoaster-like hangovers are all I got
All I got in sight

Chorus (x2)
Rock rock around the clock
I guess we are all out of luck
Two buck-chuck is all I can’t get enough
Track Name: Back on the rails
When I woke up in my bed, feeling a war declared in my head
between all these bottles my friend said
I told you not to go further, you will hit the wall for her
Now you will remember

Sometimes things are going right, but sometimes they are going wrong
When I saw the light, my soul said
Better run before you get screwed, better fight before you lose
It is up to you

Here comes the point of no return
I’ll call you back when I will find the words

So now I stay with family and mates
we break down that anger’s jail then going back on the rails
One by one, things that I have done
Are going away on a freight train out of my way

It’s time to go back on the rails (x4)

So now I stay with family and mates
we break down that anger’s jail then going back on the rails
One by one, things that I’ve done
Are going away on a freight train out of my way
Track Name: Dusty road
Walking down the dusty road
A strange place where there’s no code
Where the guys play with guns, blinded by the sun
and where the kids are on their own

Time to go back at the shack
time to feed the poor alongside the track
Tired to complain about «The Saints»
Let’s hit the road away from hell

Now where should we go?
Somewhere we could throw
our past for a medal of hero

Chorus (x2)
Why did we wait so long to get back on the road?
Everything was going wrong before we dropped our load
Miles over miles, we will stand together in front of any storm
Even if it’s cold or warm, feeling like at war
I swear baby, one day we’ll be back home

Chorus (x3)
Why did we wait so long to get back on the road?
Everything was going wrong before we dropped our load
Track Name: Lightning of thoughts
A white page covered with letters and rhymes
Digging for words all the time
For different reasons but this time there’s a note
«Please give a chance to the one that you love»… that you love

Flying through the clouds of his mind
Lightning of thoughts get through the sky
They chose to drive straight on «Dead End Road»
Instead of the highway on their own

Hard to find a way to get all-in
«We’re in a maze between heaven and hell»

We used to fight for our rights, whoever pass by
We used to burn all the lies, to make no one cry
Where d’we go? Where should we go?
