Track Name: Strong
When your honour is jeopardized
You gotta be strong
Cut the crap and stand your ground
You gotta be strong
Show your fists against the crowd
You gotta be strong
Don't let those bastards bring you down
You gotta be strong

And after all these years you're in the same streets
The dream you live today can be a nightmare tomorrow
Stand true to your friends, destroy your enemies
If they are merciless, you gotta show no fear

With all those problems in everyday life
You gotta be strong
It doesn't matter who's in front of your sight
You gotta be strong
Hit harder, be faster and cut them down
You gotta be strong
You're not a part of that stupid crowd
Track Name: Shine Forever
Father took me by the hand and led me to the river
And there I discovered a faith that I still carry now
All our colours filled the air with all that mighty beauty
Every time our colours fly I feel that I'm back home

For you I bled, for you I cried, for you I fought
And I don't have regrets at all.
You're at the same time a cheap hooker and a king
God bless our fucking holy blood

I know,
I'm gone,
But I love you just the same

You're never far away

As we carry on in life our names upon our actions
Always like wounded soldiers after losing a war
From the bitter taste of defeat the desire of struggle rises
The warriors' faces change but we will be always there

I know,
I'm gone,
But I love you just the same

Through the good times and the bad times
Men need something to hold fast
Some are better, some are worse
And life goes on and on
And as my friend Edu says, everything can come to an end.
But on thing is for sure:
Red and White shines forever.

So far, so close, I love you so.
Track Name: Memories of War
You know that grandpa was a soldier once
He crossed under the fire the enemy lines
Most of his friends returned home inside body sacks

He belongs to a generation with balls
That proves that you are nothing at all
With your serious problems about some banal shit

Closes his eyes and sees the battlefield
The bombs are falling when men become just pieces of meat

Memories of war

As a vampire that is ready to bite
Young blood is spilt at war
of soldiers that kill before they're able to fuck

He saw the misery, he saw the fear
After the war he raised a family,
But the real heros are those who died in pain.

Closes his eyes and sees the battlefield
The bombs are falling when men become just pieces of meat

Memories of war
Track Name: Pending Deed
Whenever I'm pissed I sit and think of the good times that passed away
Cause I feel no sorrow or no regrets in the things I did or said
I've always known that I've done no wrong or at least wasn't deliberate
So I just cannot turn my back to those days we used to share.

What will be of us if we forget the memories?
Do you remember when the world was a pending deed?
Older and wise, life's become quite hard but not enough to bring us down
I hope you're fine and fucking around, as in the days we hung out

I have somewhere that fucking tape you recorded with tacky songs
And those crazy nighouts that we weren't allowed in any bars in town
No cash nor appeal, just a bunch of pimples, poshy cunts thought we were strange.
And I won't forget the morning I woke up with a fender in my bed.

What will be of us if we forget the memories?
Do you remember when the world was a pending deed?
Older and wise, life's become quite hard but not enough to bring us down
I hope you're fine and fucking around, as in the days we hung out

The world was a pending deed and now it sucks.
Track Name: Misty Days
I left my home about two years ago, in the year of the Lord 1832
We arrived to Buenos Aires, all of us really hungry and tired
while the morning sun was cuddling the boat.

I turned my face and I could smell from there
the wet floor by the rain of my land.

So goodbye my Anduriña, will I see you back again?
And those fields from Galicia, will I walk through them again?
I told my mum I loved her but I really had to go.
Oh, in misty days I remember you.

All of us came into this country where the streets were paved with gold
But things don't seem to work like that...
Anyhow I carved my way with your memories and my hands
And with the faith in a brighter day to come
And now I realise that as long there will be seas,
brave men will sail on them looking for glory.

So goodbye my Anduriña, will I see you back again?
And those fields from Galicia, will I walk through them again?
I told my mum I loved her but I really had to go.
Oh, in misty days I remember you.
Track Name: Mother
I've been trying so hard to live upong your rules
Try harder, be honest, don't trick yourself
It has been the best way to become a man
But I may not be the way you expected

Mother stands for women that made us fair
Father stand for men who made us tough
Since you've been there I've never been lost
That's a truth I won't forget

Give me pride
Give strength
Give me a path
Give me a name

Give me reasons
Give me rules
Give me honour
Give me hope

Mother
Track Name: On My Own
I'm not so good with words but I know what I felt
The summer was going away and you went to sleep with me.
I know that I was good and that you felt the same thing
We had that borrowed time and we had no place to go.

And as I look back I reckon you were fucking pretty
and that I fell in love with you
but all those punk rock nights never last forever
and my time there was almost done.

And now I know I'm gonna be
on my own

Well, to be honest it wasn't a bed of roses
It was almost written that we were approaching the end
Anyhow I enjoyed being around your warm arms
But sometimes this is a cold world, even in our hearts

It's funny but I don't know why I remember all this
Some things are better when they passed away
But if you listen this wherever you are now
Goodbye forever, my little queen.

And now I know I'm gonna be
on my own
Track Name: Won't Back Down
(Lyrics by Tom Petty - 1989)
Well I won't back down
No I won't back down
You could stand me up at the gates of Hell
But I won't back down
No I'll stand my ground
Won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down
Gonna stand my ground
And I won't back down.

Hey, baby. There ain't no easy way out.
Hey, I will stand my ground.
And I won't back down.

Well I know what's right
I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
But I'll stand my ground
And I won't back down.

Hey, baby. There ain't no easy way out.
Hey, I will stand my ground.
And I won't back down.

Hey, baby. There ain't no easy way out.
Hey, I won't back down
Hey, baby. There ain't no easy way out.
Hey, I will stand my ground
And I won't back down.
Track Name: A Mark in This World
I recall the days of fun and warm good feelings
I recall the days of faith that I'm still keeping
I feel like a soldier going to the front
The war is not over there's things to be done
Wherever you are, I know for sure
You made your mark in this world

The path that we walk is not an easy one
Sometimes it's lonely like a shot in the sky
Now that you're dead I'm a ghost ship
keeping your memory deep inside of me

Some images just come back to me
of us walking the city streets.
People will always be born and die,
what matters is what's done in between.

With grief in my heart I make a toast
A great man we loved is forever gone.

Wherever you are, my fellow,
You made your mark in this world

It's always sad when a young life is taken
A father should never bury his son
You set an example for those who knew you
You're always present, your spirit lives on

Pain strikes in the middle of the night
it burns like an arrow on fire
That's the same fire that holds your name
You were bound for glory in this life.

With grief in my heart I make a toast
A great man we loved is forever gone.

Wherever you are, my fellow,
You made your mark in this world
Track Name: New Morning
Beaten up so black and blue, bu my heart still beats for you
Oh, yes. My love is unconditional.
We are here yo leave our mark, don't give up and fight this life
Oh, yes. Fight the enemy inside yourself.

Cause tomorrow will bring a new light on you
It'll take away the problems that we have been through
The hard time will disappear
We will stand strong and free
Together we are going to wake up
in a new morning.

It's a new morning.

The glory days will never come back
You know that future always takes its time
and we're here to make a stand.

What will be nobody knows
but hear me now one thing's for sure
We have to stick together

Cause tomorrow will bring a new light on you
It'll take away the problems that we have been through
The hard time will disappear
We will stand strong and free
Together we are going to wake up
in a new morning.

It's a new morning.

For every time we fall, there'll be a time we'll rise
For every broken dream, there's a fight we win.

Stand up and rise your fist
I will be by your side
Until life tear us apart
I'll have you always in my heart.
Track Name: Dead at 28
This wound will never stop to bleed
In the city of concrete and steel
You're dead but you're alive
Your everyday sheep to the slaughterhouse

The morning bell rings everyday
are you ready to swallow frustration and pain?
Some call it work, some call it life
Enjoy being a slave to the modern times.

It seems that life is always the same
Dead at 28
And you need the money to pay the rent
Dead at 28
Wondering if you're already dead
Dead at 28
You're in a rut, you can't see the end

You arrive to the place where you work
Still sleepy and so pissed off.
Everyday is a copy of the past day
Til you're 65 or you pass away

You never had the guts to do nothing with your life
so you spend all the weekends at your local bar
Don't you realize?
Don't you just see that you're dead?

Dead at 28
Track Name: 21st Century
Fast fingers in halted brains, hollow thoughts not used to straining
Heading to the future world but there's no gain.

Misery around us look so far, war on the screen and it looks so fun
Our couches are our trenchesm what's going on?

You can run but you can't hide, this is what existence has become
Raising voices loud has gone so far
Nobody knows there's a right to exist in this New World
...has pulled out what made us worth
Great New World

This New World
What made us humans is tumbling down
Great New World

Gray days, gray minds wandering 'round, 21st century is to arse about
Weak mentalities will swallow anything you say to them
The screen gives orders, dodge efforts, dodgy TV is a dodgy mock
Your brain's becoming crap and you can't even afford a flat

Orwell was just fucking right, lies subjugate any worthy fight
The story of your life will be plain shit soon released on DVD.

This New World
has pulled out what made us worth
Great New World

This New World
What made us humans is tumbling down
Great New World

21st century is a fucking lie
21st century, the future is now
21st century wants to bring you down
21st century won't bring us down
21st century, the future is crap
