Track Name: Torches
Burning cars on the streets
Despair painted homes
Not a single sign
Giving hope for any good

Hunger was what drove people out to the streets
The first shot was what drove them to kill
When a car bomb turned the mayor to waste
They hadn't had the ninth meal
They hadn't had the ninth meal

Distrust turns to hate
Extremities move further away

In the temple of unfairness
In the highest tower block
They keep everything to themselves
At the feet of it smell of gasoline

Distrust turns to hate
Extremities move further away
And away

Where are all the responsible ones?
Proclaimers of promises, preachers of hope?
Don't you see that this country will fall?
Don't you see where all this comes down to?
Track Name: Deep Blue
Under the thick smog there's no light from the sun
On shores of dying waters there's no trails of other life

And I always tried my best to stand firm
Though they all gave up
And I always tried my best to realize
What signs mean to us

Like sound of a siren
after explosion
echo the screams
when did this life turn to an everyday survival?

Oh, the sea that used to be a road to freedom has painted its face
painted its face and turned to deep blue emptiness

I tried to carry you
I tried to carry you
But I wore out

And I always tried my best to stand firm
Though they all gave up
And I always tried my best to realize
What signs mean to us
