We live in the side where the sun don’t shine where you have to sweat to get a piece of bread Ain't no bridge to cross or a boat to get away, no… We live in the side where trees don’t grow and we have our feet covered in thick mud We build on sand and we feed on love We gotta try to live better times We wanna cross to the other side Better risk our lives than wait until we die The river’s wide but who cares, We’re the Wire walkers Tell me, tell me, tell me are you ready to come with me? Then say goodbye and pack all your things You have nothing so it won’t take long Let’s toss the coin and keep our fingers crossed Knock on wood, we are ready to go now Come on boy, we gotta move on Come on girl, we gotta face our fate

You bring the life, you bring survival You bring the snow that melts from the high peaks You feed the crops and water the fields If I cry into you, please hide my tears…. Born from the brooks, that dwell in the grey rocks Grow from the creeks that flow in the mountain tops Please wash my sins, take them away You may be dammed, but you’ll find a way… I wrote these lines for you I sing these lines for you You bring the life, you bring survival I wrote these lines for you And I sing this lines for you Freshen the air; come soothe my thirst Clean every wound you find in the way Gather the rain that comes from the clouds Everything springs if you are around I wrote these lines for you I sing these lines for you You bring the life, you bring survival I wrote these lines for you And I sing these lines for you

Bang Bang 03:58
He saw some things he shouldn’t have seen He heard some things he shouldn’t have heard Wrong time, wrong place for a simple man He knew too much, so they wanted him dead Oh, he can run but he cannot hide Won’t have a chance to bargain for his life He can’t stand still or he’ll die on his knees He’ll get concrete shoes and sleep with the fish Bang, bang, he was shot to death Bang, bang, he was thrown away Bang, bang, he was shot to death All gone in a blink What do you think the waters would say? If they only spoke, if they could sing a song I think no secret would be revealed ‘Cause they ain’t no snitch, they’ve got stories to keep Bang, bang, he was shot to death Bang, Bang, he was thrown away Bang, bang, he was shot to death All gone in a blink

Plasticland 04:10
I was broke back in ’94 I had empty pockets and rage Rock and roll was the perfect log that saved my ass from the wreck Working my evenings after school trying to make a few bucks I could spend Buying cool albums in Plasticland until I had no money left. Where is now the new generation? I don’t think they like music the way we do Streaming and iPods have flooded all Kids don’t buy records anymore Digital boys rather watch something on you tube Streaming and iPods have flooded all Kids don’t buy records anymore Digital boys do not like music like we do. We did not have spotify, nor soundcloud or things like bandcamp We didn’t know what an MP3 was but we knew some albums by heart We recorded radio songs in crappy TDK tapes. There was live music in TV shows now we have hotties that can lip-sync Where is now the new generation It’s a shame they can’t visit Plasticland

Good day, Sun was shining high I had no worries, nothing could make me feel bad Good day, you were by my side Only blooming weeping willows seemed to cry But there was something going on I didn’t see the waterfall… It was a good day, we were holding hands Making plans, daydreaming, looking at the sky And we were happy, so happy We didn’t give a shit about what was around ‘Cause we were locked and trapped into our love We were absolutely sure that nothing could go wrong Naive as anyone could be We barely knew that life was gonna test our hearts There was something going on I didn’t see the waterfall I didn’t see the waterfall I didn’t see the waterfall I didn’t see the waterfall I didn’t see the waterfall

J. had a house in Wind City by the river 35 years of mortgage left to pay Catfish was a clerk, a white collar private. (He was) just a tiny fish but he wanted to be a shark J. Barbus lost his job He couldn’t pay his bills He knows that bricks ain’t no good meal Cunning catfish sharpened his teeth Barbus is gone, the poor son of a gun Catfish ate it all and left the bones Poor old J. Barbus should have known better There’s always a bigger fish around Ruthless Catfish evicted everyone Now there’s nothing left he has to feed on doves. J. Barbus lost his job Cunning catfish sharpened his teeth Barbus is gone, the poor son of a gun Catfish ate it all and left the bones

Drowning 05:02
Where am I? where do I come from? I forgot my name when I saw your face, babe. You came here and did not say a word I bet you didn’t even notice I was right at the door; all right. And I hate it….and I hate you….. I hate you…. Cause I; I’m drowning in you I; I’m drowning in you. I can’t see any life vest around I stretch my toes but I can’t reach the ground, oh no! I cry for help, screaming SOS Take one more deep breath before I dive my head, oh yeah! And I love it….and I love you I love you… Cause I; I’m drowning in you I; I’m drowning in you.

Adrift 03:52
I had an old map with the route I had to follow Every stop, every bend, every stage I had to cover My compass pointed north; I was ready to go… I was given tips and clear instructions I knew for a fact that I had to be cautious The wind was in my sail, blowing to the goal And I wonder why I’m in this situation starving to death and with no direction I am drifting and I just got the blues I believed all the lies they told me before setting I took every step to the promised ending I did every single thing I was told to do I could not foretell the mess where I was heading They try to make me think that I’m bad at understanding But I refuse to believe it was all my fault. And I wonder why I’m in this situation starving to death and with no direction I am drifting and I just got the blues I try to keep my head up and look to the horizon It’s pouring on me and I can’t take action I am drifting and I just got the blues I didn’t reach the end but I learnt my lesson I will write my own fate and make my own mistakes Nobody will tell me what I should dream…

It may bring the life watering the soil It may mean just death drowning every soul It may be a line We cannot get through It may be the link that takes me straight to you Always in the move But in the same place Always making ways Reaching everywhere You can build a dam You can build a ditch But you can’t hold it back You know it is free It is the sound of the river singing to your ears It is the sound of the river Let it be unleashed It is fresh and young coming from up hill It is old and wise heading to the sea Let it soak your bones Let it bring the truth Let it heal your heart flowing into you.
