Track Name: Intro
You feel disgrace
when you look into my face
trust me I would do this all again

There's no other place we'd rather be
getting teary-eyed
can't deny the joy to hear you screamin'

Now back on stage
pretty childish for our age
but for growing up it's not too late

Sure I know our dream's condemned to end
so let's just pretend fairly
that today we scotch the world
Track Name: Bloody Bastard
You fail reality
you think this can't go wrong
get away with everything
and silence someone's tongue

For fun you break some bones and leave
defend myself and pay your teeth no way
my speech is all in vain
you are tough like a soldier but the bombs hit your brain

Chorus:
You wanna fight
get your ass where it belongs
could you be nice
you'll never know
your future life's to indemnify
you can't afford someone to fuck with
so fuck your life or lay your arms now or never down

At home you're so romantic
you lick your best friend's balls
in mother's arms watching titanic
crying to Dawson's fall

You feel depressed wanna let off steam
you need a victim to feel free
break a rib beat a kid and believe you are the king
for you bloody bastard it's a natural thing

Chorus:
You wanna fight
get your ass where it belongs
could you be nice
you'll never know
your future life's to indemnify
you can't afford someone to fuck with
so fuck your life or lay your arms now or never down

You can't go out singin' loud you cross the borderline
sneak about and wait a push to come
tired of the good vibes you can't stand see them smilin'
gettin' ugly chewin' bubble gum

Chorus:
You wanna fight
get your ass where it belongs
could you be nice
you'll never know
your future life's to indemnify
you can't afford someone to fuck with
so fuck your life or lay your arms now or never down
Track Name: Scotch Wha Hae
We do not mind to be unlike the music fashion
we've got a freak who shits the beat out of his bag
they thought we'd come undone
21 stories that we’re gone
to prove them wrong
we're movin' on

Chorus:
Scotch wha hae found a remedy
for a screwed up day
the boredom fades away
turn the pop beats down the bagpipe's on

Jump on our train for a getaway
where a lukewarm ale
and music start the day
let's go get off the ground
'cause bastards are in town

There ain’t a book of rules for rock 'n' roll lifestyle
it can be punk to drink hot chocolate in your bed
there's nothing wrong
to play the pipes all on your own
we're having fun
if you don't like it then I call my friends
and shoot you down cause we all know
that Tommy has a gun
1, 2, 1, 2, 3 4

Chorus:
Scotch wha hae found a remedy
for a screwed up day
the boredom fades away
turn the pop beats down the bagpipe's on

Jump on our train for a getaway
where a lukewarm ale
and music start the day
let's go get off the ground
'cause bastards are in town

Chorus:
Scotch wha hae found a remedy
for a screwed up day
the boredom fades away
turn the pop beats down the bagpipe's on

So let's pretend to like this band
and raise our voices loud and clear
the more mistakes a singer makes
the louder has the crowd to sing

Chorus:
Scotch wha hae found a remedy
for a screwed up day
the boredom fades away
turn the pop beats down the bagpipe's on

Jump on our train for a getaway
where a lukewarm ale
and music start the day
let's go get off the ground
'cause bastards are in town
Track Name: Ordinary Life
I chose an ordinary life
what have I done now
I hear reproaches from the dead
stand up for all
things that you want
even if they seem wrong and
realize the things that we just had
easily said

Don't need a reason
to come up against a wall
if I just want to
my next step's not predictable

Straining at the leash to take
matters into my hands
I'd make all my mistakes again

Chorus:
So I don't run away I won't erase
the dreams inside my head
I'll pay the bills for what I've said
lay the stones into my way
I pass them while I'm drinkin'
overtakin' you
walkin' through

So I keep on singin' on though I am doin' wrong
this catchy tune you'll hear it all night long
some wet dreams are predefined
turn it up, cover up our missin' skills
we don't ask you to boo 'cause I know you will
'cause we set the bar down low

Chorus:
So I don't run away I won't erase
the dreams inside my head
I'll pay the bills for what I've said
lay the stones into my way
I pass them while I'm drinkin'
overtakin' you
walkin' through

So I don't run away, I won't erase
the dreams inside my head
I'll pay the bills for what I've said
lay the stones into my way
I pass them while I'm drinkin'
in spite of clouds right over me
my confidence's not shrinkin'
for all my enviers or enemies
I won't fade away
Track Name: Brake Release
Smelling war and it's gonna start tonight
I build a manly force ready to fight
we'll tear 'em down spark the fire you better hide
we follow an endless fuse and we crawl all night

Oh I
won't fall
till that
I want

Give it all show me your will to survive
I can assure you the fear is justified
try to join in or stay out of the crowd
you cannot escape our mushroom cloud

Chorus:
We'll tear 'em down we set their souls on fire
not any place's too far to go
the suffered setbacks ain't a reason
to give in or to feel low

We lose ourselves but not our pride we're just alive
punk beats our brake released beer's our delight.
no more inhibitions, do whatever we're supposed to do
screamin' off my head before black turns to blue

Oh we
won't fall
till that
we want

Give it all show me your will to survive
I can assure you the fear is justified
try to join in or stay out of the crowd
you cannot escape our mushroom cloud

Chorus:
We'll tear 'em down we set their souls on fire
not any place's too far to go
the suffered setbacks ain't a reason
to give in or to feel low
Track Name: Best Friend
I can't believe all your words meanin' sorry
for all the pacts broken by your lies
you took a big step down you're one step closer
to lose the underground

Remember the days we spent on trees
our minds so clean not a girl in between and
one step fall back
treatin' like a dog now

Rebuild the picture in your head

Chorus:
You are the best friend of the best friends settin'
great store by a best friend's opinion
yeah honestly
trust me like a brother
as long as...what shut it up stop singin'

The best friend of the best friends settin'
great store by a best friend's opinion
yeah honestly
no one replaces a brother
as long as...what shut it up stop singin' it

You've never thought that a girl could be the reason
to spit on our friendship and be guilty of high treason
so many ways to confess without releasin'
emotional disaster

Your miserable plan turned out so bad
that time would pass and I'd forget
our gentlemen's agreement about whoever she may be
not a bitch could drive a wedge there in between
this would be uncalled-for if you were

Sweet chorus:
The best friend of the best friends settin'
great store by a best friend's opinion
yeah honestly
trust me like a brother
as long as… what you know

Chorus:
You are the best friend of the best friends settin'
great store by a best friend's opinion
yeah honestly
trust me like a brother
as long as...what shut it up stop singin'

The best friend of the best friends settin'
great store by a best friend's opinion
yeah honestly
trust me like a brother
as long as...what shut it up stop singin' it
Track Name: Worn and Weathered
We keep our feet down on the ground
just tryin' to serve some kind of punk rock sound
although I'm a king in messin' around
we won't aspire to be crowned

We drink one beer after another but just light
we jump off stage and don't get caught but we're alright
whisky for free a backstage key this is where we wanna be
give it a try escape the day-to-day life

Chorus:
Even the worst day's better
if you get together
just banging your head
until you're worn and weathered 'cause
nothing matters when you
don't remember
the mistakes that you've made
you're not forced to regret a thing now
just believe they will fix it somehow

We're livin' here and now
before we back down we pass out in the crowd
tweedledee and tweedledum
we take even the bad things as they come

We drink one beer after another but just light
we jump off stage and don't get caught but we're alright
whisky for free a backstage key this is where we wanna be
give it a try escape the day-to-day life

Chorus:
Even the worst day's better
if you get together
just banging your head
until you're worn and weathered 'cause
nothing matters when you
don't remember
the mistakes that you've made
you're not forced to regret a thing now
just believe they will fix it somehow

While we're standing on the rooftop
singin' loud our anthem of jerks not bothering
we're livin' the day
our hearts beat the same while we play
time is just flyin' away
Track Name: Raise your Glass
Hey lad watch the lassy in red
I want her to meet me upstairs
but my first of all principles
don't go chasin' a doe without booze for your soul

Chorus:
So come on raise your glass with me
my father would be proud to see
some old well-known alcoholics
and me and my friends in between
so come on raise your glass with me

Hey you cocky guy at the bar
I can't stand to see your red face
so you better pay me some ale
before I go to bed to have a face just as red

Chorus:
So come on raise your glass with me
my father would be proud to see
some old well-known alcoholics
and me and my friends in between
so come on raise your glass with me

We ain't no soaks nor at risk to go broke
our souls stay forever unsold
but whenever we're together we're never alone
there's no need to drink on your own

Chorus:
So come on raise your glass with me
my father would be proud to see
some old well-known alcoholics
and me and my friends in between
so come on raise your glass with me
Track Name: The Grouch
Even if all works out as planned and none
the less you find those hidden parasites and augur the decay
you feel complete when something's going down
unsatisfied from deep within
blame it on the world you're livin' in

The hill's so high, the valley's pretty low
don't walk so fast could you accelerate don't move along
even if it feels so right it's wrong

Chorus:
Embittered and lonely
no will to break out
our world is just a blur in the universe
the flood is never over

Your polluted point of view
is freakin' me out
just keep your bedtime stories under your hat
'bout you against the world

The naggin' ghosts spinnin' in your head
get on my nerves and
your doubts won't ever fade away
I want it all but what I don't get
is what I see so I'll make sure that
what you do will break into pieces ain't I

Chorus:
Embittered and lonely
no will to break out
our world is just a blur in the universe
the flood is never over

Your polluted point of view
is freakin' me out
just keep your bedtime stories under your hat
'bout you against the world

The negative thoughts ain't missin'
put your laugh line to the test and
we are young, our minds are free
not a word makes it to bother me

Consumed by the ambition
we fend off the depression
walls may tumble down
not enough to see us frown
Track Name: Nightwalk
The early light arrives and I'm on the run
I thought the night would never end
I'm hit by rays that make me feel that I'm hunted
so bright my eyes can't stand the light

Find a way to my home
or at least stay alive
feel the weight of my bones
people pass me by

Nowhere to go
need a dark place to hide
let the day turn into the night

Chorus:
My burnin' hands are tied
someone's got to build me up
to break me down again
I'd throw away my pride
to get myself out of this shiny atmosphere
my eyes are bleedin'
now I know
it's time for me to leave
or else I fall

It might take all the night to cure my disease
I'll fight until the very end
the broken souls are waitin'
to share their sorrow and pain

Chorus:
My burnin' hands are tied
someone's got to build me up
to break me down again
I'd throw away my pride
to get myself out of this shiny atmosphere
my eyes are bleedin'
now I know
it's time for me to leave
or else I fall
Track Name: Gorilla Boyfriend
Put your spell on those guys
knowin' that you're candy for the pedestrians' eyes
I pretend not to care
hopin' that you're broken and alone
searching on the street for some company hang on easy one
it's a boyhood dream you've crashed into me head-on you're the one
but I've missed the gorilla you take for a walk
I know guys like him

Chorus:
His fake appearance equals visual abuse
while he's strutting down the avenue
he's smothering your light blowin' every fuse
this can't be safe
don't get me wrong I don't mind if he mows your lawn
the way you act reveals the one and only truth
that money's seducing you

He's a whiff of nothing
but it's him that sponsors your diamond rings
he's the man of your dreams
controlling all the nightmares in your head
you are obviously
way too dear for me I'm gone you won
get your world trophy of superficiality fight on all along
but one day you'll find out that you're nothing without
a redneck's moneybag

Chorus:
His fake appearance equals visual abuse
while he's strutting down the avenue
he's smothering your light blowin' every fuse
this can't be safe
don't get me wrong I don't mind if he mows your lawn
the way you act reveals the one and only truth
that money's seducing you
Track Name: Chainless
Hangin' around and
thinkin' 'bout how it would be
to share that moment with someone who falls for me
leavin' together just
the two of us tightly embraced
and my seven pints make sure I'll finish last

Let us find a place to hide
help me make it through the night
but I don't promise anything
when the morning brings the light

Chorus:
Time's up stay a lovely memory
fade out all the words you wanna say to ruin my day
I don't need no one to call "my own"
don't mean no harm by movin' on
I'm not your friend nor your enemy
I just want to be free

Again I get there
where I damned myself to be
I missed another chance to find the girl I don't seek
back to nowhere I'm
exactly where I wanna be
not a single spark of bad conscience bothers me

I won't give no one but me
chance to lead myself astray
let's enjoy the night but
then I'll do what's best for me

Chorus:
Time's up stay a lovely memory
fade out all the words you wanna say to ruin my day
I don't need no one to call "my own"
don't mean no harm by movin' on
I'm not your friend nor your enemy
I just want to be free

It might demand a lot from me
to walk beside the travelled streets
but I do what it takes to do whatever I want
I'll go on without compromise
I know it's worth the sacrifice
that I have made
to get what I deserve

Chorus:
Time's up stay a lovely memory
fade out all the words you wanna say to ruin my day
I don't need no one to call "my own"
don't mean no harm by movin' on
I'm not your friend nor your enemy
I just want to be free
