ALONG THE RED BRICK WALLS Along the walls, along the red brick walls I'm walking back home from town Along two prisons and a police station They're part of the landscape just like me Under a dull light I'm walking home I'm slowly walking home And every garbage on the street Is making fun of what I'm thinking Along the red brick walls Under the lights, under the pale streetlights I'm walking back home from the bar I live between two prisons and a police station They're part of the landscape just like me Under a dull light I'm walking home I'm slowly walking home And every garbage on the street Is making fun of what I'm thinking Along the red brick walls All is pale Pale, pale, pale as those ales I drink too fast some nights All is pale, pale, pale as those ales Along the red brick walls All is pale Pale, pale, pale as those ales I drink too much some nights All is pale, pale, pale as those ales Along the red brick walls

HEROES ON EMPTY STREETS We can break our masks Tonight we've got no past Life is starting now On those empty streets We don't need no make up Our steps won't be stopped We are born tonight On those empty streets Let's be heroes on empty streets Let's be heroes on empty streets Let's be anything When the night is young And the rest is behind us Forget your daily role We're writing our true stories We own our whole lives On those empty streets Cameras off Directors are gone Freedom's starting here On those empty streets Let's be heroes on empty streets Let's be heroes on empty streets Let's be anything When the night is young And the rest is behind us

SOMEDAY SOMEHOW Take a look at where I'm sitting Take a look at where you're talking to me now Take a look take a good look at where we kiss every day There will be an empty space Take a look at what we've been through Take a look at our love babe, it's still true Take a look take a good look on those happy days we had There will be many others babe Someday, Somehow Rain will fall and there will be no trace Someday, Somehow No more footprints on the trails we walk Someday, Somehow We're gonna leave here someday We're gonne leave here somehow Someday, Somehow Take a look at all our dreams Listen to the breeze that blow us out of here Take a look take a good look at where we dance on friday nights There will be an empty space Someday, Somehow Rain will fall and there will be no trace Someday, Somehow No more footprints on the trails we walk Someday, Somehow We're gonna leave here someday We're gonne leave here somehow Someday, Somehow Take look at me, take a look at you There'll be an empty space Take a look at me, take a look at you We're gonna leave here someday Take a look at me, Take look at you We're gonna leave here somehow

JOYFUL THRILL Broken glass on the streets of the city Clever words on the walls of the city Thick smoke in the air and dreams in the sky Giving me a joyful thrill Broken glass on the streets of the city Tears for shop windows Broken on the ground Moans for painted words around Bitterish complaints running all over town Those grinding teeth will never cover the sound Broken glass on the streets of the city Clever words on the walls of the city Thick smoke in the air and dreams in the sky Giving me a joyful thrill Broken glass on the streets of the city Will it end this evening ? Will it last a week ? Will it change something at all ? What I know is today some have answered the call And some grinding teeth will never stop the fall Broken glass on the streets of the city Clever words on the walls of the city Thick smoke in the air and dreams in the sky Giving me a joyful thrill Broken glass on the streets of the city

Outsiders 03:37
OUTSIDERS This is a tribute To all the street dogs in the place With mud and sweat all over the face This is a tribute song To all the full backs on the pitch Who run so much that they make a ditch Under their feet Never in the light, their passion shining bright You can count on the outsiders to be true Never in the light, but always in the fight You can count on the outsiders to stand by you This is a tribute To all of those hidden in the shade Who are still there when the lights fade This is a tribute song To all the second strings in here They give it all so they've got no fear To lose anything Never in the light, their passion shining bright You can count on the outsiders to be true Never in the light, but always in the fight so you can count On the outsiders to stand by you

Wake Me Up 03:22
WAKE ME UP I can't help it, it's sure The state of grace is gone This cold feeling won't leave All the best has been done I am tiring myself Just running away My eyelids are heavy I can't see the way Am I old, Am I young ? Am I weak, Am I at last strong ? Is there something left ? Wake me up, wake me up On that overcast day Clocks are burning away Through my decrepit curtains I see shadows creeping I must be one of them awake but always sleeping I can't help it, it's sure The state of grace is gone This cold feeling won't leave All the best has been done Am I old, Am I young ? Am I weak, Am I at last strong ? Is there something left ? Wake me up, wake me up On that overcast day Clocks are burning away

WE LOVE OUR SCARS We love our, we love our scars We love our everlasting scars Feelings come faster than words To our stammering mouths Spitting our hearts on the ground Every time we're out The path is never straight Under our stumbeling feet What's in front is a mistery But past never cheats We love our, we love our scars We love our everlasting scars Some victories have a bitter taste But in defeat we'll never lose face Because we, we love our scars Looking down at where we're bruised We win when we know why we lose Looking down on a hurting trace We win when we know what we chase The path is never straight Under our stumbeling feet What's in front is a mistery But past never cheats We love our, we love our scars We love our everlasting scars Some victories have a bitter taste But in defeat we'll never lose face Because we, we love our scars

FAITHLESS GOSPELS How How could I break The spell, the deafening spell How Can I escape From those words Those faithless gospels From every radio On every screen Dubious beliefs Unjugded thieves I sometimes wish That I was deaf I often wish They found their death What is gonna stop those Those Faithless gospels Coming to my ears Break the spells Break the bars of the cells Those faithless gospels Soaking into Into my ears A life is worth nothing But profit is god and borders are sacred Where Can I escape From those words Those faithless gospels What is gonna stop those Those faithless gospels Coming to my ears Break the spells Break the bars of the cells Those faithless gospels Soaking into Into my ears Tell me we all are not bewitched by those faithless gospels What is gonna stop those Those faithless gospels Coming my ears Break the spells Break the bars of the cells Those faithless gospels Soaking into Into my ears

HOUSE OF MIRRORS Talking to themselves all night Talking to themselves all day Talking to their faces in the mirrors every day Looking at themselves at night Staring at themselves all day Looking to their ghosts who are listening to what they say Talking to their ghosts who are listening when they pray In the middle their own reflections they've lost their way Round and round in their house of mirrors They turn and the funfair is over Round and round in their poor lives of terrors They're stuck and the funfair's gone They are talking to themselves all night Talking to themselves all day Talking to their faces in the mirrors every day Looking at themselves at night Staring at themselves all day Looking to their ghosts who are listening to what they say Talking to their ghosts who are listening when they pray In the middle of their own reflections they've lost their way Round and round in their house of mirrors They turn and the funfair is over Round and round in their poor lives of terrors They're stuck and the funfair's gone

Own Goals 03:21
OWN GOALS You are scoring own goals That's what the wise ones think You can't escape this bad role The deafening whistles are for you Falling from the grandstand You should walk with your head down That's what the headlines mean You're the shame of your home town Accusatory looks on you Falling from the grandstand Own goals, own goals, Own goals and bullets in your feet But who's holding the gun Own goals, own goals, Own goals and bullets in your feet But where came the shot from ? Where came the shot from You've betrayed your own side That's what the grandstand whispers The winner's suit was too wide The deafening whistles are for you Falling from the grandstand Own goals, own goals, Own goals and bullets in your feet But who's holding the gun Own goals, own goals, Own goals and bullets in your feet But where came the shot from ? Where came the shot from ? Accusatory looks on you Falling from the grandstand The deafening whistles are for you Falling from the grandstand Own goals can make us win In the no-nation team Own goals can make us feel as one "You will never walk alone"

Limits 02:06
LIMITS I don't want to chose To chose is to lose I want to live all at once I don't want to chose Be wise and abuse To controle and leave things to chance Cold and burning I want to feel everything Still and moving I want to be everything I want to build And destroy it all I want to climb and then fall I don't want to chose To chose is to lose I want to live all at once Cold and burning I want to feel everything Still and moving I want to be everything My Limits I fight My Limits I am

NIGHT WAGON BLUES Eyes widely shut I'm in the night train Echos of voices buzzing all around I guess I'm not alone Don't know where we started Don't know when we left But I'm sitting here at the back of the train Eyes widely shut I'm on the night train And mile after mile, hill after hill, Hour by hour the buzz keeps growing So much that I open my eyes But there's no one here I had friends, I had lover, I had ennemies too Sitting next to me in that dirty wagon But there's nobody now Not even their shadows Only voices and wind in that empty train And mile after mile, hill after hill, Hour by hour the buzz keeps growing So much that I open my eyes But there's no one here I hear voices around So I open my eyes But there's no one here There's no one here anymore I hear voices around So I open my eyes But there's no one here The train is empty
