Track Name: Deep Down
HOW MANY INSTRUCTIONS
HAVE YOU LISTENED UP TODAY?
WE AIM FOR FREEDOM
BUT STILL DON´T KNOW WHAT IT IS
IS ALWAYS SAME STORY, SAME ROLES
AND SAME SITUATIONS
IS NOT INCOMMUNICATION
IT´S LIKE A BAD INFATUATION

DID I MENTION THAT POWER
PERMEATES GREY INTO OUR LIVES
DIVIDES MEDIOCRITY FROM
ALL THE REAL THINGS, THE GENUINE
MINISTRIES OF THE DIGNITY
WEARING EXPENSIVE SUITS
PAYED WITH EXPENSIVE SINS

HEY LISTEN
I´LL TRY TO EXPLAIN THEIR MASTER PLAN
THEY WANT YOU TO BECOME A SHEEP
OR INSTEAD A SCARY LAMB
IT´S UP TO YOU TO DECIDE, YEAH
WHICH SIDE OF THE COIN
YOU WANT TO CHOOSE
TO LIVE YOUR PRECIOUS LIVE AND
DON´T WORRY IF YOU FEEL THE LAST IN THIS RACE
IMPORTANT IT´S NOT HOW THE PARTY STARTS
BUT HOW IT REALLY ENDS
BRILLIANT CONCLUSIONS
INDEPENDENT MINDS
INTELLECTUAL REVOLUTIONS
WE ARE READY FOR THE FIGHT

DON´T TRY TO FIND SOMEONE
TO FIGHT YOUR REVOLUTION
IT´S UP TO YOU TO THINK THAT
GOD IS A GOOD SOLUTION
OH, WE ARE MADE OF WHAT WE ARE
IF YOU TRY TO FIND THE ANSWER
THEN GO DEEP DOWN, DEEP DOWN
(OH, WE ARE FREE TO FEEL FREEDOM, GOT TO DO IT
OH, WE ARE FREE IN THIS GAME SO, TRY TO PLAY) x2

BEING UNDERESTIMATED
IS A BEGINNERS MISTAKE
WE HAVEN´T SHOWN OUR CARDS
AND STILL CAN SAVE DE THE GAME
OUR WEAPONRY ARE THE REASONS
THE ARGUMENTS AND WORDS
WE THE ILLUMINATED
MAKE THEM LOOSE ALL THEIR SENSE
IS GOOD TO FEEL ALRIGHT
WHEN THE WORKDAY IS DONE
SIT DOWN AND WATCH TV
IGNORING ALL THE INNER SOUNDS
THE SOUNDS OF THE INNER VOICES
BEATING IN YOUR HEART
SINGING THAT THE ANSWER
TO YOUR QUESTION IS DEEP DOWN
DEEP DOWN.

DON´T TRY TO FIND SOMEONE
TO FIGHT YOUR REVOLUTION
IT´S UP TO YOU TO THINK THAT
GOD IS A GOOD SOLUTION
OH, WE ARE MADE OF WHAT WE ARE
IF YOU TRY TO FIND THE ANSWER
THEN GO DEEP DOWN , DEEP DOWN
OH, WE ARE FREE TO FEEL FREEDOM, GOT TO DO IT
OH, WE ARE FREE IN THIS GAME SO, TRY TO PLAY
Track Name: Got my Own
TODAY I´M WEARING MY BEST SHOES
I´M NOT A SUPERSTICIOUS GIRL
BUT I´VE GOT A FEELING OVER YOU
I´VE GOT A FEELING OVER YOU

THAT WALKS DISCALCE UPON THE SAND
AND SO IS MY MUSIC TOO, AND SO IS MY MUSIC TOO

I´M DELIBERATELY FRESH AND I AM DELIBERATELY ME

DON´T BE AFRAID OF ME

NOT BAD FOR YOU´VE MET IN THIS LIFE
NOT GOOD COMPARED WITH OTHER GIRLS

GOT MY OWN STYLE
GOT MY OWN SWING
DON´T NEED NO DIAMOND RINGS
DON´T NEED YOU (x3)
DON´T NEED YOU TO FEEL FINE

Track Name: Procrastination
LIKE A FLOWER IN SPRING TIME I USED TO GROW

THIS IS HOW IT´S GOT TO BE ´TILL THE END OF TIMES
I SAW HER MESSAGE, I HEARD HER NAME
BUT EVELYN, BITCH, YOU SENT ME A GIFT
AND I´M GRATEFUL FOR IT

THAT I´M FREE ENOUGH TO DO WHAT I WANT

AT SOME POINT WE SHOULD HAVE
TOOK A DETERMINATION
BUT THERE ALWAYS HAS BEEN A WORD BETWEEN US
YOU KNOW: PROCRASTINATION
AND PLAYING IN THIS NONSENSE GAME
TEN YEARS HAVE FLOWN AWAY

IF LIFE IS JUST A GAME
