WarZone [LP]

we‘re heading north!
maybe we’re lost!
we’re heading north!
or maybe not!

we crossed the fields of borderless lands
hailed the sun with a hundred hands
fought for life and fought for death
singed along with a wineful breath

across the seas
we lost the keys
no matter where
‘cause we don’t care

we‘re heading north!
maybe we’re lost!
we’re heading north!
or maybe not!

grabbed the world in our own two hands
if there’s no seed, no garner stands
tired of pain and misery
we‘re gonna change the history

across the seas
we lost the keys
no matter where
‘cause we don’t care

one last wine and one to tell
one you can’t buy and one you can’t sell
this is not your property
and that’s our fucking liberty
and that’s our fucking liberty

we‘re heading north!
maybe we’re lost!
we’re heading north!
or maybe not!

what do you get?
dark desire
won’t you regret?
set on fire

come on burn it all

that did not burn
flames get higher
there’s no return
set on fire

let it spread, let it out
let your fire fly now

let it flow everywhere
let it all get all burned

come on burn it all

let it flow everywhere
let it all get all burned

let us dance, let us trance
wait no more, take this chance

let it go, let it shine
wait no more, break the line

let it grow everywhere
let it all get all burned

in this world that is ruled by insanity
people die in the name of economy
all these crazy who declare a war
because money has blinded them all
in this world, in this world
who we are we forgot

in this world that is ruined by poverty
lords are playing a board game of strategy
people crashing their heads on the wall
'cause religion has blinded them all
in this world, in this world
who we are we forgot

no pasaran, no more
no pasaran, just love

no pasaran, no fear
no pasaran, no tear
no pasaran, no war
no pasaran, just love

in a sparkle we see in humanity
there is still fire burning, why can’t you see?
no more lies, no more fights, after all
we all live under the moon and the sun
in this world, in this world who we are we forgot

a massive weapon that’s called solidarity
in our hands wait to fight this atrocity
if united we stand they shall fall
and the story will end once and for all
in this world, in this world who we are we forgot

no pasaran, no fear
no pasaran, no tear
no pasaran, no war
no pasaran, just love

ride your dream, ride the train, ride the balkan express
free your mind, take your time, there’s no other address
let this wagon take you to another universe
i couldn’t confess
you can never be sure just guess
acid trip i am mess... yes
rainbow color caress
obsess
compress
process
impress
less stress
ride the balkan express

ride the train

a gypsy band, lot of wine, flying wedding dress
dancing people till the morning, happy nonetheless
crazy music take me to another universe
i couldn’t confess
you can never be sure just guess
empty bottles i am mess... yes
there’s no space for depress
possess
oppress
suppress
sos
ride the balkan express

ride the train

what is a war, daddy?
why do they bomb?
where are their homes, daddy?
why are they gone?

where do they go?
what did go wrong?
maybe you know
where do they go?

where do they go, daddy?
what did go wrong?
maybe you know, daddy
where do they go?

maybe they shine, daddy?
stars in the sky
same like your dad, daddy?
a star in the sky

where do they go?
what did go wrong?
maybe you know
where do they go?

don’t ever be a star, daddy
don’t be a star
please don’t be a star, daddy
never a star

ίσως να
και ίσως δεν
όταν θα
μήπως και

ναι αλλά
όλο λες
ξέρω που
και δεν ξες

κι όμως το τώρα είναι τώρα
που αρπάξανε τα μάτια φωτιά
κι όμως το τώρα είναι τώρα
πίστεψέ με δεν υπάρχει μετά

κι όσο λες
προσπαθώ
να αφεθώ
στο χορό

μην αργείς
ούτε λεπτό
δυνατά
θα στο πώ

κι όμως το τώρα είναι τώρα
που αρπάξανε τα μάτια φωτιά
κι όμως το τώρα είναι τώρα
πίστεψέ με δεν υπάρχει μετά

tribe after tribe around an ancient pipe
years passing by as the rituals revive
survive, changeless by the sands of time
the tree or the river? what’s the meaning of life?

drums after bongs singing native songs
earth, wind and fire speaks our mother tongue
so long, are you happy my bro?
or your heart has frozen a long time ago

night after night a tremendous vibe
fire high on the sky as a limit to fly
i declare myself as the shaman of our tribe
maybe the mountain? what’s the meaning of life?

ne, ne znam, ne vidim, ne čujem
by the way you people tell me how ya doing?
ne, ne znam, ne vidim, ne čujem
by the way you people tell me are you grooving?

day after day there’s no count anyway
no tick-tock clocks will determine our way
so let’s raise our glasses too
for eternal today and our mind’s breakthrough

ne, ne znam, ne vidim, ne čujem
by the way you people tell me how ya doing?
ne, ne znam, ne vidim, ne čujem
by the way you people tell me are you grooving?

my golden brown is gone
i wrote a weeping song
maybe one sunny day
i’ll see you on my way

g-g-g-gone
she’s gone
g-g-g-gone
now she’s gone

we ‘ve been a thousand times
in front of thousand eyes
or other nights so lone
we sang and cried along

we ‘ve been in dust and cold
drunken or high and stoned
sweat on a sandy bay
pure love in every way

the only thing that hurt
and kept me nights awake
that there will be no one
to ever get your tone

g-g-g-gone
she’s gone
g-g-g-gone
now she’s gone

waiting in a line with my heart’s hard beat
just a few more steps for my dream to begin
security check and i start to breathe
i put a smile on my face and my belt on my jeans
i step outside, now i am waiting for you
over a thousand eyes and i locked on two
a bitter taste in my mouth as the smoke goes down
a sign was enough, let’s hit the underground

i am london rat
i am london rat
where’s the trap?
i am london rat
where’s the cat?
i am london rat
where’s the trap?
london rat

i got a brand new life, but it’s hard to define
what’s being said, between my heart and my mind
and they were enemies, they met beside
of an enormous city, i did survive
i went out alone and it tickles my spine
i can smell the rainy streets and the ages of time
is this the present? or a tricky flashback?
oh, what i’ve become? what is that?

i am london rat
i am london rat
where’s the trap?
i am london rat
where’s the cat?
i am london rat
where’s the trap?
london rat

makes no difference night or day
i keep going anyway
to the darkest paths of sound
you could ever dream about

and i could never let you down
if i could only see you frown
pour that colour in my tale
‘cause i am a blinded nightingale

makes no difference what you say
and if you ever give away
years may pass or centuries
through reflected memories

no i ‘ll never let you down
maybe it’s shining all around
made of gold but still a jail
i am a blinded nightingale
i was born inside this cage
tried to escape the silent rage
made of gold but still a jail
i am a blinded nightingale
