pre-Chorus: Cheers my friends down the hatch I am following gravity Cheers my friends down the hatch I am ready to walk through the void Verse1: I'm drowning, I am lost, I need to get a drink To clear my head, and drain my brain pre-Chorus: Cheers my friends down the hatch I am following gravity Cheers my friends down the hatch I am ready to walk through the void Chorus: I try to deal with all my pain, instead of hurting I'm flying to the moon Drifting through space, I am getting drunk I am floating far away Verse2: I breathe, I hope, I need to get a drink I ll buy my ship, straight to the moon Chorus: I try to deal with all my pain, instead of hurting I'm flying to the moon Drifting through space, I am getting drunk I am floating far away Bridge: I am in the jigsaw Verse3: I fly, I am alive, I need to get a drink I am a supernova, I can elapse the time pre-Chorus: Cheers my friends down the hatch I am following gravity Cheers my friends down the hatch I am ready to walk through the void Chorus: I try to deal with all my pain, instead of hurting I'm flying to the moon Drifting through space, I am getting drunk I am floating far away

Verse1: Hey bro I will bring you back home Relax! we will get through this war Be ready and follow my steps Pre-Chorus: Oh we will fight for freedom Bring it on You will kill not to be killed Chorus: I don't need rescuing Save your own life We are brothers-in-arms I' ll shoot my last bullet for you Pre-Chorus: Oh we will fight for freedom Bring it on You will kill not to be killed Chorus: I don't need rescuing Save your own life We are brothers-in-arms I' ll shoot my last bullet for you Bridge: The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him. Only the dead have seen the end of war (G.K. Chesterton) Verse3: 3 month on the battlefield I've lost so many of friends I can no longer bear to see them dying Chorus: I don't need rescuing Save your own life We are brothers-in-arms I' ll shoot my last bullet for you

Verse1: I walk with you in the valley of death I am stronger than you; Better that you cut loose The devil's call Verse2: I have to go out of this world a ghost The poison cutback The bleakness invades me The devil's call Chorus: You give me some hope , I am praying for the crystal Rain Knowing that I am weak you abuse me more I am falling like a rock, I am praying for the crystal Rain I feel stronger and alive, clad in crystal armor Verse3: The words around me turn upside down I feel so relaxed, fuck this world, and melt the spoon The devil's call Chorus: You give me some hope , I am praying for the crystal Rain Knowing that I am weak you abuse me more I am falling like a rock, I am praying for the crystal Rain I feel stronger and alive, clad in crystal armor

Verse1: I am just a regular guy who lives day by day I am struggling in this jungle of heartless people I want to be able to afford the life they deserve It will be nice sometimes to have a gift from the sky Pre-Chorus: I never wanted to be an outlaw With all this rules, I've made my choice 2x Chorus: Hell yeah I try to build a new world Hell yeah I never claim to be a saint I never claim to be clever Why are you judging me Verse2: Why some people have that much authority on us We are meant to be equal unless we have a bag of diamonds This world is giving us no choice, it's polluted by money One day, silver will become stone, and we will all rise Pre-Chorus: I never wanted to be an outlaw With all this rules, I've made my choice 2x Chorus: Hell yeah I try to build a new world Hell yeah I never claim to be a saint I never claim to be clever Why are you judging me Intro riff(bridge): You'll see Verse3: I decide to survive on my own way of life I choose the other side, where the laws make more sense Pre-Chorus: I never wanted to be an outlaw With all this rules, I've made my choice 2x Chorus: Hell yeah I try to build a new world Hell yeah I never claim to be a saint I never claim to be clever Why are you judging me

Verse1: I am now living on the street, I made some bad choices in the life I lost everything in a day My sweet home I wanted to be a rich man And return to my proud wife I lost everything in a day My sweet home Chorus: The day I lost my soul I try to find a way-out of the black cell My heart is filled with remorse I've never been able to forgive myself Verse2: I started to see things bigger The day I won the jackpot I lost everything in a day My sweet life I bought luxury car and boat Everything that we wanted I lost everything in a day My sweet life Chorus: The day I lost my soul I try to find a way-out of the black cell My heart is filled with remorse I've never been able to forgive myself Bridge: Hugh Verse3: I see in the eyes of my wife That she does not recognize me I lost everything in a day My sweet wife We started to consume all the drugs She never woke up again I lost everything in a day My sweet wife Chorus: The day I lost my soul I try to find a way-out of the black cell My heart is filled with remorse I've never been able to forgive myself

Chorus 2x: I am drowning, the darkness surround me I am suffocating, no one understands me The madness infects me I want to drive my truck straight into the wall Verse1: I am feeling so strange No one understands me Oh I try to hide All those eyes staring Why won't you let me What have I done! Chorus 2x: I am drowning, the darkness surround me I am suffocating, no one understands me The madness infects me I want to drive my truck straight into the wall Verse2: They try to steal my mind I wish they all go away They're creating the chaos I want to be in a silent place and escape the paranoia I am in your fucking head!!! Bridge: You can try to hide I will follow you You can avoid people I will look for you

Verse1: I am always full of hope I need to fight to be someone This life gave me no choice To work harder than anyone Pre Chorus: You were born in a golden cradle You have bought your success; but can you reach it Chorus 2x: You are such a miser The time of kings is over You are not an overlord I can feel your hidden sorrow Verse2: How can I keep compete In this immoral world of dolls Where money is everything The smell of silver binds you Pre Chorus You were born in a golden cradle You have bought your success; but can you reach it Chorus 2x: You are such a miser The time of kings is over You are not an overlord I can feel your hidden sorrow Bridge Solo: I will melt your crown Chorus 2x: You are such a miser The time of kings is over You are not an overlord I can feel your hidden sorrow
