Track Name: Mary Marry Me
Mary Marry me

Throw my seed to the ground
Patiently I watch her grow
Look at her first leaves sprouting
Her green eyes hypnotize me as I am staring from above

Throw your seed to the ground
Don’t judge what you don’t know
A friend disguised as an enemy
Got you in my pocket
Help me to spread the good mood

All around the boring town
Everyone heard the news
She came, she saw, she conquered
No more feeling blue

Glad to see you so grown up
And girl you look so damn good
Your perfume is driving me so crazy
I want to hold you, want to taste you
Think I love you so madly

All around the boring town
Everyone heard the news
She came, she saw, she conquered
No more feeling blue

No more feeling blue

My happiness…I’ll share it with you!
My loneliness…I’ll end it with you!
Track Name: Celebrate
Celebrate

I´ve worked so hard and for so long to build this
It took only a minute to destroy it…to destroy it!!
Being aware that everything’s relative
Made me reformulate this “dead end” way I lived…
So misguided…oh..oh

Let’s hit the town
On Friday night
Let´s celebrate and get high
Touch the sky

Time to break those rusty chains
And open my so soared wings
I’m wearing a mask no more
So what you see it is real
What you see is who I really am

Take a look around…all you see is decadence
Drink from the magic fountain... We have music
So let’s dance
Let’s dance you and me
Dance everybody
We are we are we are…

Skalibans playing in your home stereo

And we’re sending out a message of love…for everyone

Grey were the days when I used to procrastinate
With my pen I drew a backdoor to escape
To that wave with no end
Look at the clock and wonder why I’m lingering
I tend to be some kind of fugitive when I feel
The fish hook on my lip

Let’s hit the town
On Friday night
Let’s celebrate and get high
Track Name: So Long
So Long


Stability is like a ship … constantly being wrecked
And loving you is like having a pirate with a knife in my neck
One day you give it all to me…the other day you run
You didn’t come with a manual so I couldn’t follow instructions

But I haven’t felt this way for so long
My symptoms are persistent and I need some urgent treatment
I haven’t felt this way for so long
That’s way I drove a thousand miles to be with you

So what if all my thoughts appeared on a huge LCD screen?
You wouldn’t be afraid to get involve
I’m not as bad as it seems
Forced my entry at the radio station
Broadcast my declaration
Still you think you’re going to get out hurt

But I haven’t felt this way for so long
My symptoms are persistent and I need some urgent treatment
I haven’t felt this way for so long
That’s way I drove a thousand miles to be with you

I haven’t felt this way for so long…that’s why I wrote you this song…
Track Name: Sunshine
Sunshine

The rising sun makes me feel just fine
I wake up refreshed and there are no doubts in my mind
I pick my van and take all my friends
The beach is waiting and there are no doubts in my mind

And I don’t want this wonderful day to stop now

Sunshine...it’s all I want
To purify my soul
Sunshine it’s all I want
To purify me everyday

When summer comes happiness for all
I feel fine and with more strength in my heart
Inside myself a will to improve
Live each day like the last day of my life
Track Name: Through My Window
Through my window

I’m looking through my window
And it’s such a beautiful morning
Nature wakes me with rhythm
Don’t feel like going to work…no no no…
Track Name: Ties And Suits
Ties and suits

Well I really hate working 8hours dressed up in a suit
My vocal chords get tangled cause I have to wear this stupid fucking tie
And act like a man (a business man)...to be something that I’m not
When all I care for is music…nothing else makes sense

Yes it has been over a year since we first appeared live
But it has been so intense, so far so good, we’re spreading it worldwide
It’s wonderful to have some recognition
To touch people with our songs
So no more ties and no more suits…I’ll burn them all today

Some say its destiny, others say it’s pure coincidence
I will make the pieces fit...this puzzle gets complete
We’re struggling for our place in the sun

So someone…
Show me some directions
A way I can make it last forever
Songs that stay for posterity
And no more ties and suits for me
Track Name: Under Your Spell
Under your spell

I stared at the serpent’s eye…I knew I was an helpless prey
Under hypnosis I’m a willing less servant…

Now I’m under a spell…Oh! Oh! that I can’t break up
No doctor or any priest can help me out
I’m under her voodoo…Oh! Oh! And I am the doll
So stick the needles and tie me to the bed I’m in

I’m giving up to the routine and I’m killing my self –esteem
Still there’s one thing that lifts me up…
My band and the music we play loud

After all that we’ve been through, our dream is coming true!
Track Name: Utopia
UtoPia

Remember when we were young and naive
Everything was possible
To put a smile on every face
To make the world a better place
Bring love to every lonely heart

No matter what the future has reserved for us
Friends will be friends ...nothing breaks us apart
No matter what society wants for us...
We’ll do what we want and stand up for our beliefs
Even if sometimes we stand for an Utopia

Remember... the year was 1996
And punk rock changed our lives
Jamming through the afternoon
My attic was the stage
Imagination drove us far

No matter what the future has reserved for us
Friends will be friends ...nothing breaks us apart
No matter what society wants for us...
We’ll do what we want and stand up for our beliefs

1 2 3 go!!

I miss the pure and genuine ones
That we were long time ago
I want to fight for what I believe
Even if I’m getting old
So gather...and riot
Throw your fists up in the air
Then show some attitude like the one you showed before...
Utopia
Track Name: Late Night Phone Call
Late night phone call

What can I do to take that sad look off of your face?
I need to find a way to dry your tears…and wipe away all of your fears
Deception…became a common word on your dictionary
But I’m by your side...helping you to paddle against the current

Here I am
More than your lover I’m your friend
Take my hand
Let’s face the storm together

Step in the car…we’ll drive throughout roads with no destination
We’ll be so far away from everything that bothers you
In my arms you’ll fall asleep under the stars
I will kiss you goodnight. I promise everything ´s gonna be alright

Here I am
More than your lover I’m your friend
Take my hand
Let’s face the storm together

Late night phone call just to make you smile
Late night phone call …I wont let you fall
Track Name: Remedy Ska
Remedy ska

The alarm clock rings out loud
Barely able to open your eyes
The cold of dawn makes you want to get back to bed
Traffic jams and all the rush to get on work on time
Am I turning into a machine? Fuck the routine

So I suggest take the day
Relaxing is a remedy
I’ll be drinking beer all day
Drinking beer all night and day
I’ll be making love all day
So don’t you bother me
Making love all night and day

This train is moving so fast
I need to make it slow down
Cause I know there is no turning back…oh no
So many hours being serious
Exposed to stress and idiots
I say NO! What we need is to have fun

Surf until my body aches
Then eat a big bowl of ice-cream
Rest my head in the sand and dream

And in the afternoon
We’ll sit under the trees
Reminding of our infancy
Track Name: HamBush
Ham bush

Oh what an awful thing to do…
To act like you rule the world
Hey man! You’re just a puppet on the hands
Of those lobbies that you serve
The gun industry feeds your tyranny...
Make wars in the name of democracy
Too many fake arguments cover your thirst for oil
Who voted this idiot for president?

All the bombs that you’re throwing
And all the pain that you’re spreading
Will hit you back like a boomerang
Are you ready for the ambush?
All the stones that you’re throwing
And all the harm you keep causing
Will hit you back like a boomerang
Are you ready for the ambush?

Oh what a wicked thing to do
So many lies that you have told
Hey man! You better quit your master plan
Do this favour to the world!
The gun industry feeds your tyranny...
Make wars in the name of democracy
Too many fake arguments cover your thirst for oil
Who voted this idiot for president?

All the bombs that you’re throwing
And all the pain that you’re spreading
Will hit you back like a boomerang
Are you ready for the ambush?
All the stones that you’re throwing
And all the harm you keep causing
Will hit you back like a boomerang
Are you ready for the ambush?
Track Name: A Little Surprise
A Little surprise

All this time I wasn’t pretending
But you’ve been doing it for very long
Well I’ve washed the sand off of my eyes
And now I have a little surprise

I’ve tasted the bitter taste of treason
Now taste my all-stars kicking your ass
Let’s get medieval and burn the witches down
Hands on the sword and you against the wall

Under …under your grey skies of sorrow I will be leaving tomorrow
Mama I’m coming home
I found that this city life is killing me… And I’ve seen enough of jealousy
So mama I’m coming home

Face to face with the hypocrites
Talk to me but look me in the eyes
I’ll grab El Toro by its horns
And I’m wearing red still he avoids me

All this time I wasn’t pretending
But you’ve been doing it for very long
Well I’ve washed the sand off of my eyes
And now I have a little surprise
Track Name: It´s Not Enough
You revelation couldn’t surprise me more than this
Say…what part have I missed??
Watching re-runs of all the times we shared
Searching what went wrong…
Somewhere a king lost its crown...his kingdom went out of control
Someone occupied the throne
And he looks so strange without it
Unprotected… naked
That king was me but I’m no longer royalty

These pictures in my head…and all the tears I shed
Why won’t you lift me up again?
Cause I had enough of tasting the ground...
Your hand…I’m letting go

You revelation couldn’t surprise me more than this
Say…what part have I missed??
Watching re-runs of all the times we shared
Searching what went wrong…
Somewhere a king lost its crown...his kingdom went out of control
Someone occupied the throne
And he looks so strange without it
Unprotected… naked
That king was me but I’m no longer royalty

These pictures in my head…and all the tears I shed
Why won’t you lift me up again?
Cause I had enough of tasting the ground...
Your hand…I’m letting go

It’s not enough...That´s why I’m letting go

So play your cards on the table…I’m aware I’m able to lose it all
Keep on searching for the mine of gold…someone to have and to hold

It’s not enough…no it’s not enough no it’s not!!
You left me without even caring about my feelings so I’m letting go
