Track Name: The Promise
So full of doubts, wake up and try
to extend your life one day
they won't let you be a part of the herd
hang on, be strong, true to yourself
don't let yourself be just a part of the herd.

And when the waves of insecurity
float around your neck, behind your ears
ignore their call, just do your best
to make your own decisions rest
upon decisiveness.


You should've known, in one day
you could change your fate
that bitterness inside you
instead of that great taste
instead of your life
you're doing what they expected.

Look at the sky
armies of sparrows
looking back at you from the wires
with worn-out claws and shattered beaks
but with the strength to still fight for their seeds.

Now lower your head
look here below
don't let the ugly landscape get you trapped
those fancy cars will become scrap
but with these three bricks we can build a stronghold now.


You should've known, in one day
you could change your fate
that bitterness inside you
instead of that great taste
instead of your life
you're doing what they expected.

So now you know that today
you control your fate
it's bittersweet inside you
instead of going with the waves
instead of on a dice
you're trusting your life on a promise.


Don't wait for time to let you know
what you should have done
let's show the world why you were born
insecurities just block your road.

It's in your hand, in your blood flow (one by one)
it's a reason of your own (raise your hands and sing along)
let's show ourselves the way out of the door (all as one)
set priorities and stay strong.


RAISE YOUR HANDS AND SING ALONG!

Raise your voice, raise your head up
grab my hand, you're not alone.
Track Name: Re-Burn
There's much inside but I don't seem to know
how to let it out, I thought I would
but words and thoughts just wouldn't match.

And I don't care if I will ever write
a song that you could feel, it's my own fight
just me against myself, last man standing wins.

So here I am, just look at me
and listen close cause I'm finally


Finding the rhythms to let these feelings go
feeling the words and just bursting into song
shouting away every little piece of hate
or faithlessness, what saves me from myself is

Finding the rhythms to let these feelings go
feeling the words and just bursting into song
shouting away every little piece of hate
or faithlessness, now your only chance is going down.


Waking up and feeling like I was
back to my toughest days, anxiety I thought would never
catch up to me again.

A different place in a different time
the same old need of understanding why
a different you, a different me
and even though it does not change a thing.

I'm standing here, a ball of flames
burning the strongest right before I faint and


Finding the rhythms to let these feelings go
feeling the words and just bursting into song
shouting away every little piece of hate
or faithlessness, what saves me from myself is

Finding the rhythms to let these feelings go
feeling the words and just bursting into song
shouting away every little piece of hate
or faithlessness, hide my fear but it's still right behind.


Catching up, it's catching up
it's catching up to me again
fight your battles, scream your thoughts
your life is not attached to fate.

Catching up, it's catching up
it's catching up to me again
learn the lesson, know the road
this life is not to be forfeit.
Track Name: Gainesville Awaits Us
These coming months will be the hardest of our lives
when something gets so fucking hard
you know it's gonna be worthwhile

But don't misunderstand me
these times are what we're living for
it's in our blood, our DNA contains the will to go abroad.


Over the ocean, into the sinking state
Let's go, let's go, Gainesville awaits

Over the ocean, into our best three nights and days
Let's go, let's go, our future memories await.


We're dumb and broke, yet we are stoked
we're nothing less, we're nothing more
than all this passion cause we know
it's what we're living for.

We're dumb and broke, yet we are stoked
we're nothing less, we're nothing more
than all this passion cause we know
Gainesville awaits us.


Over the ocean, into the sinking state
Let's go, let's go, Gainesville awaits

Over the ocean, into our best three nights and days
Let's go, let's go, we owe it to ourselves.


For once in our miserable lives
let's not disappoint our faith
the shitty jobs, the family fights
planning all this through sleepless nights
oh no, we cannot fail this time.

And when it seems we're falling
we're gonna get back up in style
cause all these nerves and all this waiting
all the burocracy and money saving
it's gonna be worthwhile.


GAINESVILLE AWAITS US!

Let's not disappoint
Gainesville awaits us.
Track Name: 11 Beers
Cheap beer in the bar
cheap beer in my dreams
cheap beer at the edge of my lips.

From a bottle or a can
drink as much as you can
until you forget all your promises unkept.

You swore to be someone
and there's still so much to be done
but first open the fridge and get a


Beer, you never let us down you make us laught
as if our lives were not as goddamn sad
no work, no cash, no sex, no fans
and in our happy beer-soaked nights
you're the yellow spot on our pants.


Cheap beer in the bar
cheap beer in my dreams
cheap beer at the edge of my lips.

Blonde or dark, who really cares?
just take the cheapest you can get
the taste won't matter when you
lie blind-drunk in your bed.


One beer cools you down
two beers make you smile
three, four, five, six
your head starts spinning around
seven beers, still doing fine?
eight beers, try to walk the line
nine, ten, tw...


Beer, you never let us down you make us laught
as if our lives were not as goddamn sad
no work, no cash, no sex, no fans
and in our happy beer-soaked nights
you make life worth the fight.

Beer, you never let us down you make us laught
as if our lives were not as goddamn sad
no work, no cash, no sex, no fans
and in my mother-in-law's house
only you make time pass.

Beer!
Track Name: She Has To Go, She Knows We Suck
We are here, defeated
our minds couldn't win this round
we couldn't pull this off
our lack of talent knocked us out
and we are listening to a Jawbreaker song
I think our ears don't deserve it, no!


Here you have a sucker writing these verses in his chair
while smoking some vases with the taste of defeat
his mate is KO in bed, embracing hard a teddy bear
so if you are listening to this song
this is the sound of two losers.


This is the taste of being damned (of being damned)
blocked minds and frozen brains (and frozen brains)
a sense of being lost and nothing more (there's nothing more)
Blake should come and break our fucking jaws!


Here you have a sucker writing these verses in his chair
while smoking some vases with the taste of defeat
his mate is KO in bed, embracing hard a teddy bear
either genius or apathy has led us to this song.


Well, you like it? No.
Does it sound good? No, not at all.
Our generation cannot be saved
and this is what the famous lyrics should've said:

This band must be gone
two can become no one
we were born to lose
we could be the worst.


Here you have a sucker writing these verses in his chair
while smoking some vases with the taste of defeat
his mate is KO in bed, embracing hard a teddy bear
he must be dreaming of leaving this band.
Track Name: This One Is For Sing-Alongs
Is it really air we're breathing?
cause it tastes more like regret
growing older but never growing up
along with every tired breath.

So why take care of our lungs
if we're already at our last gasp?
let's not watch the days pass by
from behind this suffocating mask.


It may be common but it's odd as hell
this broken symmetry
to look into a mirror and not recognise
the one staring back at me.

Way too much thinking
when all we need is a place in a new land
where unlike in this world
decision and decisiveness go always hand in hand.


THESE ARE THE BEST DAYS OF OUR LIVES
IF YOU BELIEVE THIS, SING IT LOUD
THESE ARE THE BEST DAYS OF OUR LIVES

LET'S NOT DROWN THEM IN OUR DOUBTS!
