Track Name: Bald pride
Bald pride
We should all shave our heads
Face it up, you lose your hair
It won't grow back again
We're bald, not skinhead
Track Name: Step back or sink
I don't feel it tonight. I get the feeling we're gonna fail.
The decision has been made, it's the only way to escape.
Step back or sink. Too much pressure tonight.
I know it's already too late. No turning back, I paid the price.
I just don't know if it's worth it.
Running in the dark on the beach.
Everybody seems as scared as I am.
The craft looks like a wreck. I'm not even sure it floats.
Smugglers, let's exchange our lives so you can understand how it feels to be trapped. Shut up and walk because we all agreed to board.
My hopes were built on lies
Track Name: Where's my tooth?
Where's my tooth? Where's my fucking tooth? I woke up in the subway with a hole in my mouth. Yesterday it happened again, the beast came back. There is no one else I can blame. Where's your tooth? Should I start becoming straight-edge?
I'm fed up with being ashamed. Soju always drives me insane.
Back to my foolish smile, I lost my tooth.
Track Name: Think about the rainy day
Before the rain came down I felt happy and dry.
Music is the vibe so open up your mind. My clothes are wet
Track Name: Gugus
A roar echoes in the mountains. A white smoke colors the road.
How much booze have we spilled on the dashboard?
Loud and creepy sound. Sick with a nasty cough. Never scared, always proud. Foot to the floor. We're late, we're lost, but always having fun.
Track Name: Burn a match
Downstairs, I can't breathe. A hand retains my head. The bottle is empty.
Heavy heart. Sick and uptight. The compass is broken. It's hard to reach the light.
Burn a match. Make a wish. All is just a bad dream playing inside my head.
Track Name: Riding my dragon
I built my kingdom in the blood of my enemies. Now I can play solos on their dead bodies. The wings of steel in the sky spread the smell of fear.
I came with my sword to release the beast. Riding my dragon, I'm free.
Track Name: Don't throw your shit at your friends
Don't throw your shit at your friends.
Drunk as fuck, naked in Busan, we needed more fun.
Track Name: On the bridge
At the end of the road I picture myself on the bridge falling down like a stone. I want to do it again.
I won't answer the phone. Voices try to convince me. Keep strong and walk. Let me do it again.
I'm drowning in a world of guilt and pain.
Guided by currents, life seems easy and sweet. In the eye of the storm, let's just do it again. Don't follow my path. Just ignore me. All lights go out
I just did it again.
Track Name: Fashion punk
A leather jacket. A new pair of boots. No real ethic. I'm cooler than these dudes. Fashion punk. Let's go shopping at the mall.
A studded belt with a Ramones shirt.
