"If you are more fortunate than others,
build a longer table, not a taller fence!"

Feeling this fortunate to have such an awesome audience is something special, which we don't take for granted!
That's why we'd like to extend our gratitude to others, in need, and, in doing so, we're going to donate 2/3 of everything we earn from this download to the iCare, Cluj-Napoca, NGO, specialised in making this world a better place for the animals and humans living in our hometown.

Email us at frontbandofficial@gmail.com for details on how you can help and you'll get a better deal than the standard listed download price!

Track Name: Alive
[Verse 1]
Elope, evade, crush, kill, man, machine, titans and fools, alike
Friend, foe,
Submit, believe, heal, love, erase, split, conquer, succumb,
Don't ever pick a side!


[Pre-chorus]
Wanna see me from behind,
Wanna see me from below,
Wanna scar me with your eyes now,
I don’t know…

[Chorus]
I wanna be so alive
I don't wanna be so alone

[Verse 2]
Split the blade in two chapters of cold and steel,
That never read through!
Carrions exposed, comatoze scourge, weak, frail,
young bodies, prey to urge...

[Pre-chorus]
Wanna see me from behind,
Wanna see me from below,
Wanna scar me with your eyes now,
I don’t know…

[Chorus]
I wanna be so alive
I don't wanna be so alone

[Chorus]
I wanna be so alive
I don't wanna be so alone
Track Name: Clipa Zero
[Strofa 1]
E clipa zero și mi-am deschis ochii-n spre lume
Și cineva-mi tot spune,
Că sunt înconjurat de glume...
Mai dă-le-n spume, nu-s rune,
Ci forme-anume, tactic mascate în costume postume
Ca să mă-ndrume să pier, să le-nghit pumnul de fier
De când cu ochii prinși în portofel,
Ai uitat să mai privești spre cer!

[Prerefren]
E clipa zero!
E clipa ta!
E clipa zero!
Și doar a ta!

[Refren]
Ridică-ți ochii și privește-i,
Fă-le cu mâna și pleacă dintre ei!
Ridică-ți ochii și privește-i,
Fă-le cu mâna și pleacă unde vrei tu!

[Strofa 2]
E clipa zero, recepție-am început,
Am fost conceput recrut lipsit de atribut, soldat necunoscut
Cu chip implantat în cap, n-am știut ce m-a durut
Dar m-am întors să-l schimb dup-atâta timp pentru
Unul cu mai puțină ură,
Fără urme de uzură morală, setat pe-o viață normală
Și dacă nu mă crezi, prietene hai să vezi,
Îți dau o coală: Am garanția totală!

[Prerefren]
E clipa zero!
E clipa ta!
E clipa zero!
Și doar a ta!

[Refren]
Ridică-ți ochii și privește-i,
Fă-le cu mâna și pleacă dintre ei!
Ridică-ți ochii și privește-i,
Fă-le cu mâna și pleacă unde vrei tu!

[Punte]
E clipa zero și mi-am deschis ochii-n-spre lume,
Cineva-mi tot spune, că sunt înconjurat de glume,
Lasă-l!

[Refren]
Ridică-ți ochii și privește-i,
Fă-le cu mâna și pleacă dintre ei!
Ridică-ți ochii și privește-i,
Fă-le cu mâna și pleacă unde vrei tu!
Track Name: Say
[Verse 1]
Sick of all the times I had to bite my tongue
In your presence, seems like I’m no one, sir?
Just believe and give and grieve
Until my tic tac’s up, my days are gone!
I own the right to my own lips and i’ll slam
Lyrically crafted upside-down kicks,
Cause sticks and stones may break some bones
And wreck homes, sing no songs, but words are born free

Yes, they’re born free!

[Chorus]
Say what you want,
Say what you want,
Just a little bit louder!
Say what you want,
Say what you want,
Just a little bit wiser!

[Verse 2]
Break the lips that ice the tips of your peeps’ tongues,
Free speech, obeys to no one!
Smash the fortress, don’t extend, pend or bend, swallow the lies
or agonise, just stand tall!
Speak my mind, never weigh words!
I hate the kind of grind you’ll find, aligned,
Pushing the likes of me from behind, but my words are born free!

Yes, they’re born free!

[Chorus]
Say what you want,
Say what you want,
Just a little bit louder!
Say what you want,
Say what you want,
Just a little bit wiser!

[Bridge]
(Ow, and) now you’re running for that open door
(Ow, and) your words are meaningless no more

[Chorus]
Say what you want,
Say what you want,
Just a little bit louder!
Say what you want,
Say what you want,
Just a little bit wiser!
Track Name: Clap Your Hands
[Verse 1]
Eyes wide shut will never see you
There's one more step to take
So I can be you,
Don’t tread, don’t breathe,
Turn you into stone,
Tender skin pierced, you’re not that strong

[Pre-chorus]
Clap your hands right now,
Clap’em somehow!

[Chorus]
Clap your hands,
For the monster within,
Clap your hands
And let him win!

[Verse 2]
I learnt to bend,
Started fresh, but set aim: for the bitter end
I leave you to that...
In your broken spine, your broken hopes
There’s nothing new to read,
The silent shame, brother
Only paved new ways to live… new ways to give up...

[Pre-chorus]
Clap your hands right now,
Clap’em somehow!

[Chorus]
Clap your hands,
For the monster within,
Clap your hands
And let him win!
Track Name: Left Inside
[Verse 1]
I'm left inside with nothing else but grains of
Your unforgiven, unforgotten hell,
I've seen your eyes,
I've seen the way they look at me,
I know what you want,
You're not the same!
Hey, who’s the same?

[Pre-chorus]
So give it away, give it away, give it
Just give it away, give it away, right now
And give it away, give it away, give it
Just give it away, give it away, right now

[Chorus]
Cause I am left inside, you'll never see me...
Alone !
And I am left behind,
All that is broken's
Your heart of stone!

[Verse 2]
Left aside are all the bitter thoughts like
Angry minds and angry wishes, no…
Now what i did and what I don't,
Hang on cause it's my time to speak and row my boat!
Just row my boat!

[Pre-chorus]
So give it away, give it away, give it
Just give it away, give it away, right now
And give it away, give it away, give it
Just give it away, give it away, right now

[Chorus]
Cause I am left inside, you'll never see me...
Alone !
And I am left behind,
All that is broken's
Your heart of stone!

[Breakdown]
I'm left inside with nothing else but grains of
Your unforgiven, unforgotten hell (2x)

[Pre-chorus]
So give it away, give it away, give it
Just give it away, give it away, right now
And give it away, give it away, give it
Just give it away, give it away, right now

[Chorus]
Cause I am left inside, you'll never see me...
Alone !
And I am left behind,
All that is broken's
Your heart of stone!
And I am left inside, you'll never see me...
Alone !
And I am left behind,
All that is broken's
Your heart of stone, stone, stone!
