Track Name: Hail The Citizen
I'm a mister, you're a mistress
I'm a gentleman, you're a lady
You should use pink, I should use blue
You pee sitting, I pee standing

Heads are gonna roll (2x)

I'm a brother, you're a sister
You had better not dress like this
If it wasn't for my holy ribs
Then you wouldn't be existing

Heads are gonna roll (2x)

Everyone knows (4x)

It's dark there, don't go that way
It could be no way back
Don't resist, I'll treat you well
You fight this way, I get erect

Everyone knows (4x)
Track Name: Stomach Issues
I believe that I'm all incredulous
Shapes of shade standing tall and vanishing
I'm supposed to take coffee in buildings
Eyes no eyes playing sad this tacit game

CHORUS
Keepin' on, keepin' on
Keepin' on refusing
Creepin' on, creepin' on
Creepin' on my vomit
Keepin' on, keepin' on
Keepin' on regurgitating
Creepin' on, creepin' on
Creepin' on my own shit

I feel that I'm always rotting
Like a baby that has to taste a junkie's milk
They just want my body, mind and soul to rape
Coins of gold, golden awards and nobel prizes

CHORUS

A hero in Hollywood
A pope on the pop charts
A virgin's reality show
An exclusive with Jesus Christ
Track Name: Chew Me
There is a big fat pain
It smells like naphtalene
It keeps me away from myself
The noseblood taste is heavily true

I feel so constipated
Like losing all the rounds
I stand on hollow bones
And just can barely keep me up

CHORUS
I've been feeling like flaw since then
Trying hard not to recall, no more
So chew my heart and spit it out
Leave this blurry smelly matter

There is a hell loud sound
Just like a tap that leaks
And keeps me away from sleeping
This grief is really hard to tune

I feel my guts bleeding
A steaming gory soup
A daily hostile feast
But puking pain is not so rude

CHORUS
I've been feeling like flaw since then
Trying hard not to recall, no more
So chew my heart and spit it out
Leave this blurry smelly matter
Track Name: Sand And Stone
I'm very messed up
I'm very messed up, yeah

I'm overbored
I'm overbored, yeah

I try to find any sense, comprehend this void

I'd rather melt in the sand than grow roots in a stone.

Upset and upside down (4x)

I'm very fucked up
I'm very fucked up, yeah

I try to mingle and forget how disgusting you are

I'll feel disgusted about me if I force it too far

Unstable undertow (4x)

Way down (3x)

Fill in my soul
Filling my soul
Feel in my soul
Feeling my soul
Track Name: The Deepest Round
To reply that old question of yours
I don't mind remembering at all
To find joy in bleeding to finally restore
That's the reason why every blues is blue

And I feel like more (4x)

To fulfill that old will of mine
I'll place myself in the fire line
I'll get hurt but nevermind
Sometimes pain simply worth the fight

And I feel like more (4x)
Track Name: Start, Give Up, Repeat
You speak too much, my baby
You act too little
You know the codes and keys
You ignore the doors

PRE-CHORUS:
There's no use for quoting statements
You never seek
So hard to make things happen
Harder to sink

CHORUS:
Whisper in silence
"The world is unfair"
Scream at the bathroom mirror
Listen to great advices
"He doesn't deserve you"
Easier to discard than building

You sleep too much, my baby
You wake too little
You know the right and wrong
You choose the games

PRE-CHORUS:
There's no use for quoting statements
You never seek
So hard to make things happen
Harder to sink

CHORUS:
Whisper in silence
"The world is unfair"
Scream at the bathroom mirror
Listen to great advices
"He doesn't deserve you"
Easier to discard than building
Track Name: Over Me feat. Cyro Sampaio
There are footsteps on the floor
Covering the corridor
Spreading blood and anguish

There's no window on the wall
Or a "welcome" on the rug
Oxygen is luxury

CHORUS:
If I see you passing by
Would I scream or paralyze?
Maybe cause an accident?
Last night I dreamt about you
Or was that a nightmare?

There are memories on the floor
All over the corridor
Spreading dust and loneliness

There's no canvas on the wall
Or a "get out" on the rug
Affection is legend

CHORUS:
If I see you passing by
Would I scream or paralyze?
Maybe cause an accident?
Last night I dreamt about you
Or was that a nightmare?

You're getting over me
Track Name: Monkey Wants
Monkey wants bananas
Twice a year the summer
Monkey wants a recess
And a time to rest

Monkey wants a pillow
To sleep under a ceiling
Monkey wants no sweating
To deserve what it wishes

Oh, full time cynical

CHORUS
Lift your ass up from the chair
And do the twist
'Cause the music ain't dancing itself
Keep your head above the water
And do the swim
There's no gift sprouting under your tree

Monkey wants a donut
Extra cream and meringue
Monkey wants it easy
And it wants it faster

Monkey wants a Corona
That fancy beer from Mexico
Monkey bets on the horses
Working hard is for losers

Oh, full time worthless

CHORUS
Lift your ass up from the chair
And do the twist
'Cause the music ain't dancing itself
Keep your head above the water
And do the swim
There's no gift sprouting under your tree
Track Name: Little Turtle Shell
Spill your pain over a blank space and
Let it flow through your guitar
Colour it in gray and black shades and
Scream between the guitar lines

The baby was swimming and you couldn't stand
All that happened all at once
You tried it hard but you couldn't expect
You didn't mean to be godlike

CHORUS
It went oh so deep
It hit so hard
It was just too big
It went too far

They turned your life into a dying hell
Of magazines about your smell
You couldn't see all the great things
Outside the needle that you hid in

It got to an awful point that
You hated yourself and wanted to die
There were too many humans
That you couldn't deal with

CHORUS
It went oh so deep
It hit so hard
It was just too big
It went too far

The world wasn't enough
People weren't enough
Track Name: Worms
He floods his house with everything
He owns so much angst and agony
He soars on thru the chaos of belief
He spots a shining dot but it's currency
What for?

Damn worms...

He feeds his thoughts like watering
A plant, dry dreadful branches and no leaves
At all, but roots keep moving into deeper
Holes, like tumors on metastasis
Where to?

Damn worms...
