Track Name: Shady Lady
Well, she’s been so mean to me
since I can remember...
It all started when I was a kid. Oh!
Since then I can’t live peacefully. No!

The first time I felt her in my bones
The first time I stared at the sun
I couldn’t see the light beams shining
just my shadow crawling behind.

Why me?
Why did she choose me?
Why me?

Since then I had little choice
but to play to her dire game.
No mercy, no rules, no shame.
Shady lady will be your name

One lie to live. Just necessary.
I need to know… Why me?
Day after day
I try to escape from her
But, where to go? There's no way.

Where to go?
Where to go?
Why me?
Where to go?
Where to go?
Why did she choose me?
Where to go?
Where to go?
Why me?
Where to go?
Where to go?

Well, she is still mean to me.
She chases me like I'm handsome.
Sometimes I feel I should have hope
but then she hugs me and the bubble explodes.

I don’t want you to think
badly of me.
I also see
the bright side of things.
You can’t fall, you can’t lose, you can’t quit
when you’re not meant to win

Well I'm
just trying to live
without this shadow behind.
And I tried
And I tried
And I tried
But there ain’t no escape for me.
Track Name: Looking for Gold
Each morning,
when I wake up
There’s just one thought
in my mind
I need to go again
down to the mine
cause, I’m trying,
I’m trying
to find something I’ve never seen
No matter you don't know now what I mean.
I'll keep trying.
I'll keep trying.

So I made up my mind to go
everyday down this hole.
I will work my fingers to the bone
to get those things I do not know
That is why I am
looking for gold.

So many times,
I faced floods, I faced fires
dragged my body into the mire.
no matter what happens,
stronger is my desire…
Stronger is my desire!

So, long time ago, 
I left my gal,
I left my job,
and I sold my soul.
And I picked, dug, work so hard
then I needed my soul back
from dawn to dusk…
I need it back!
from dawn to dusk
deep into the ground!

From where the sun don't ever shine
I will sing this song of mine
breaking up stones until I die.
Cause I do need to kill this woe
that is why I am
looking for gold!
looking for gold!

One lucky day, I saw something shiny there, among the dirt
And I thought the search was over and I'd finally be free… so
When I tried to bite the nugget to check if it was the real deal...
that useless thing didn't work for me. I'll keep doing my kind of swing.

Between the walls of my own grave, I will be free
free of any rotten burden, of what they insist on calling sins. Yeah!
And that's when I realized what I'm just meant to be
I'll search until my last day comes. That is my victory. Yeah!

Rocks falling, falling, falling down!
Maybe I'll die here!
Oooh!
Yeeeah!
I won't pray!
I won't pray!

From where the sun don't ever shine
I will sing this song of mine
things I’m longing for I cannot find
Oh! Oh!
My knees are saying I’m getting old
bound to break my back
looking for gold,
looking for gold,
looking for gold,
looking for gold! Yeah!
Track Name: Desert Sirens' Song
Tonight, the sky is bleeding.
The sun is waiting to stab my mind.
Alone in the wastelands,
I don't know where to go or where I am.

Some thoughts are trying to make me drown
'cause I'm lost here in the ruins and I'm down.
Those demons are after me, on the prowl.
When weakness comes over me I feel 'em around.

They are desert sirens that sing to you, to go to death.
They sing to you, to go to death.
That's not for me.
I'm not going. I won't go. No!
This is the Desert Sirens’ song.

Their songs are trying to make me go.
When desert sirens sing to me I don't feel alone.
So, take me. I won't feel pain
when all your claws are in me, the pleasure will be mine.

I don't know how to say
that I've been trapped by myself.
I'm trying to save myself.
This is why
I have to say

Their songs are trying to make me go.
When desert sirens sing to me I don't feel alone.
So, take me. I won't feel unsafe.
When all your claws are in me, the pleasure will be mine.
Track Name: Something On The Roads
I'm not a great speaker,
I don't have a great speech,
so here I have a great story that could be easy to sing.

I rode all summer.
I rode every night.
I was looking for a way to go but I always found a trap.

I don't know the ocean
I don't know the sea.
And then I came to realize: There was a place to go.

There's something on the roads we don't know
when... when the rider crosses through the road.
There's something on the roads we don't know
when... when the Night Wind blows.

He came through the desert,
from where life is death
and when he looked at me I knew that I would do the same.

So, I got to the ocean,
I got to the sea.
And then, my friend, I realized the lie in which we had believed.

There's something on the roads we don't know
when... when the rider crosses through the road.
There's something on the roads we don't know
when... when the Night Wind blows.

So, I went to the mountains. I crossed all the seas when the moonlight was shining for me.
I slept in the deserts enjoying the light of my fire.
And then, I was enlightened cause I understood, understood we are made out of dust.
When your stone is the flame in the dark you know you have arrived.

There's something on the roads we don't know
when... when the rider crosses through the road.
There's something on the roads we don't know
when... when the Night Wind blows.

There's something on the roads we don't know
when the rider crosses through the road.
There's something on the roads we don't know
oh.. when... the Night Wind blows.
Track Name: It's Over (AU)
The sun is going down
and I’m still at work.
Like everyday I’m wiped out
I never see the sun.
I don’t really suffer.
I’m used to it.
This is what I have to do
to build my dreams.
This gloomy feeling
I can’t get rid of.
It’s always too late
when I get off.

But I think now I’m dreaming
I’m never gonna work
It's over it's over for me.
I'll never enslave myself again.
Oh no! I never will!
It's over, it's over for me.

Although I realize
I work my life away.
Nothing changes
cause I’m not brave.
It seems I've been brought up
to dig my own grave.
I think I will take
myself a day.

Ain’t gonna work tomorrow!
ain’t gonna work today!
It’s over, it’s over for me!
I'll never enslave myself again.
Oh, no! I never will!
It's over, it's over for me!

And how can I live a life
without dreaming about how it feels to be alive?
It's over for me
I'll never be a slave.
Not anymore,
not anymore,
It’s over for me.

And how can I live a life
without dreaming about how it feels to be alive?
It's over for me
I'll never be a slave not anymore!
Not anymore.
It’s over for me.
I’ll never be a slave!
Not anymore!


Ain’t gonna work tomorrow,
ain’t gonna work today!
It’s over it’s over for me.
I'll never enslave myself again.
Oh no! I never will!
It's over it's over for me.
Track Name: Proud Of My Sins
I always tried to be good
But I always fail
And I don’t know why,
But I always fail .

I’m not joking.
Look at me,
I’m lying on the ground.
‘Cause I’m nearly dead.
I am nearly there.

Blood is flowing
can hardly breathe
and here I am
quitting my skin.
I’m seeing my life
flash before my eyes
and I’m proud of all my sins.

I always tried
to fit in,
to be the way I'm supposed to be
but I was born under a star,
cursed from the start.


I’m not joking.
Look at me,
I’m lying on the dirty ground!
‘Cause I’m nearly dead.
I am nearly there.

Blood is flowing
can hardly breathe
and here I am
Quitting my skin
I’m seeing my life
flash before my eyes
and I’m proud of all my sins,
and I’m proud of all my sins,
and I’m proud of all my sins.

I always tried to be good
but I always, always fail.

Blood is flowing
can hardly breathe
and here I am
Quitting my skin
I’m seeing my life
flash before my eyes
and I’m proud of all my sins.

Blood is flowing
can hardly breathe
and here I am
Quitting my skin
I’m seeing my life
flash before my eyes
and I’m proud of all my sins
Track Name: My First Happy Song
There's something i've been waiting for.
I had resigned myself to believing
but now it's coming with the fire of a thousand suns.
Now it's time. I won't wait no more.

Fire! Fire! Fire! there's fire in my heart.
‘cause now I know I was right. Oh!

Ooooh! Demons! Demons! Demons! I’ll fight you with my own hands!
There's no chance you can hide. No!

I wasn't sleeping at the break of dawn
at first I thought it was an illusion
but this is what I've waited for (a long long time).
It was a bird flying in the yard.

Tears! Tears! Tears! Let me see it fly!
‘Cause I need to know where it goes.

Freeman! Freeman! Freeman! Follow it to death!
‘Cause death is not what you thought!

Now i'm ready you can take me home.
Track Name: Dark Night Stomp
Let me tell you
what I've seen today.
Let me tell you
why I'm blue today.

I was tired
the day was tough.
Streets were empty,
I decided to walk.
Oh! What a dark cold night!
Got shivers down my spine!

Sounds from darkness stabbed my back.
Behind the corner I found a trap.
That's our hometown, that's our life.
We are enslaved so you best be glad.
Oh! What a dark cold life!
Got shivers down my spine!

So, Is there anywhere to go?
There's nowhere else to go.
And what if there is no place to run?
There's no place to run.
So, are we enslaved till we die?
Yes indeed, Sry!
And what if there is something we can do?
There's nothing we can do.

There's no way,
there's no way,
there's no way to run away.

The roads are closed so you forget,
forget your life, you're just a slave.

There's no way,
there's no way,
there's no way to run away.

The roads are closed so you forget,
forget your life, you're just a slave.

So now I realize,
that I've been wasting my entire life.
And when you feel that
you may start
to see the light.

Let me tell you
what I've seen today.
Let me tell you
why I'm blue today.
There's no way,
there's no way,
there's no way to run away.

The chains are broken to forget,
forget you're just a slave.
Track Name: Wendy
There’s something I’ll never know
how come we never met before
but maybe some things are best left to wonder.
I should learn to leave it alone!

Oh Wendy! Wendy! Wendy!
You are the one who drives me crazy

It was a sad sunny day.
the church was plenty full and death rides away!
And then I saw her and I thought she was an angel
I never felt like this before!

Oh, Wendy! Wendy! Wendy!
You are the one who drives me crazy

Ohh! And she was there.
I met her in a funeral
she was the prettiest gal
and now I knoww
It was her!
Oh, It was her!

As I said, now I know
I’m sure I never felt like this before.
There was a time
I was dead
And now I’m alive again!

Oh, Wendy! Wendy! Wendy!
You’re the one who drives me crazy!
‘Cause you’re the only one who keeps my heart beating.
I never felt like this before.

Oh, Wendy! Wendy! Wendy!
You’re the one who drives me crazy!
Oh, Wendy! Wendy! Wendy! 
You are the one cause there’s no "maybe".
Track Name: Tipsy Waltz
Close to the desert,
we live in the slums.
We are the misfits,
we are the pariahs,
living among the dust.
We work for the rulers,
singing our worksongs,
dying in their hands.
Our blood, our sweat, our hands, our tears,
have built this town.

Comrades, we are the light of these wastelands,
singing the song of the outcasts
to liberate our hearts.
Comrades, let's sing together against the pain,
singing the silence of being enslaved,
someday we'll reach the stars.

Be careful, every night,
when the moon lights up the sky
and death rides in the mist.

When you choose to roll the dice,
and the devil is by your side,
Oh friend! You are the next.

So, you look into his eyes
and you wait while you deny
the fate you have embraced.

Then my friend you realize
there's no devil by your side
just you, singing with us.

Comrade, we are the light of these wastelands,
singing the song of the outcasts
to liberate our hearts.
Comrade, let's sing together against the pain,
singing the silence of being enslaved,
someday we'll reach the stars.

And you laugh, and you cry, and you sing, and you curse by our side.
And you grow, and you dance, and you feel, and you die by our side, by our side.
Just remember this again
we're together on this train
we are nothing but light in despair.

So, we are getting to the end,
the last waltz together friend.
We are nothing but dust in the air.

Comrades, we are the light of these wastelands,
singing the song of the outcasts
to liberate our hearts.
Comrades, let's sing together against the pain,
singing the silence of being enslaved,
someday we'll reach the stars.
Track Name: Alone
I've always needed their lies.
Oh boy! I trusted them all!
Oh! Life was easy
Now I know I was blind.

He tried to tell me,
He tried to warn me
That we're deceived.
Oh, friend! You were so right.

Now I'm alone, I'm alone, I'm alone, I'm alone!
I'm alone, I feel so alone.
I'm sick of this. I'm gonna cross the border
after you. I don't care… if I die.

They took you away from me
Now I'm gonna go find you
Or I will die trying.
Maybe I will survive
out of this town.

And why believe me?
Or why deny him?
He just warned us about their lies.
And why believe me?
Or why deny me?
Cause he was killed in the sand.

Now I'm alone, I'm alone, I'm alone!
Cause he, he was killed beyond the border.
I was blind. I was blind.
I was blinded by their lies.

Wait for me, please.
I won't let you down.
We've been deceived.
We were blind. Now it's over.

We need to fight
against ‘em.
to prevail
to prevail against their lies.

Otherwise, we are alone. We are alone against their lies.
Cause they, they wanna kill us beyond the border.
We are blind, we are all blinded!
We are lost, If we’re blinded by their lies.
