Pedro Barreiros Sou um puto que está constantemente rodeado de fumaria e bebidas quando vai sair com o pessoal, e a vossa musica ( para alem de ser mosh worthy ) retrata aspetos muito preponderantes nas nossas vidas hoje em dia, e como tal, eu nao podia estar mais de acordo com a mensagem que voces querem passar ! ( full support ! ) ... adoro o EP, agora é esperar pelo Vinyl ;) ... keep it real. a life worth living. SxE ! Favorite track: Bike Song.

Track Name: Hearts To It
on track

straight edge


some are gone

but we're 
still here!

to it
Track Name: Footsteps
feels like i'm walking

on someone else's shoes
this burden I carry
 of high expectations

keeps pulling me
so concerned with fitting in

somewhere to belong

craving for acceptance

we turn into something we're not

kill this idea
of perfection 

deeply ingrained in our minds

and realize 
that making mistakes

is a part of our lives

learn from them

make your own footsteps
Track Name: Bike Song
too much smoke in the air
I can't almost breath
but I'm still riding
pedaling fast, fast, fast
the oil industry has killed millions worldwide
think twice before you choose your ride

ride bikes
smash cars

you think that driving your car
will get you ahead
but I have just catch you
and I'm fighting back
you sick fuck, can't you see
your fucking car almost killed me

ride bikes
smash cars

but I'm still alive
you'll need to do more
to bring me down
Track Name: Awake
open your eyes
live for today

awake we are
awake we will stay
Track Name: Feels The Same
time and again
we restrain these creatures
from their own existence
and for what? for what?
for vanity? profit?
or your fucking appetite

it might be easier to ignore,
to turn the key and lock that door
'cause out of sight,
means out of mind

but deep down
you can't deny
that no matter the species
suffering feels the same

no more excuses
of habits and traditions
which are based
on pain and exploitation

I'm not naive
to think my choices
will change the world
change comes from within,
I'll start with myself
Track Name: Cut The Strings
taking advantage
on those who seek
a purpose in this life
whispering dogmas in our ears
claiming to have all answers
yet we're forbidden
to question the lies you preach.
You only intend to stop
until the last sheep has joined the flock.
but you won't fool me,
I believe in what I see!
Quit trying to take control,
I reject your blindfold!
there were no gods
there are no gods
cut the strings
believe in yourself!
