Lyrics

In vino veritas

Written By: Frank

I wonder how we can survive,
And I don’t know what will be denied,
I don’t know, said I don’t know how this can be real,
And I don’t know I’m suppose to feel,

Then I look in the bottle,
And finally see the truth,

It’s a living war a little more each day,
Working your ass off for someone else’s pay,
The country now controls your own TV,
Showing you the truth they wanted you to see,
It’s just another bunch of lies,
From the suits and ties,
Stop selling young bodies,
‘Cause now we’re giving them for free,

Then I look in myself,
And only see what’s left of me,
Then I look in the bottle,
And finally see the truth,

It’s a living war, a little more each day,
Stop selling young bodies,
‘Cause now we’re giving them away,
‘Cause now we’re giving them away,

Then we look at ourselves,
And only see what’s left of us,
Then we look in the bottle,
And finally see the truth…

Washing machine

Written By: Frank

I’ve done my laundry,
And you’re still shinning,
Would you at least comfort me?
If I was crying,

I’ve got a star on my shirt,
And some in your eyes,
Maybe someday it will give birth,
To an angel in disguise,

I’m spinning constantly,

I’m spinning, through all of this, all of this,
When will this all stop again,
I’m spinning, through all of this, all of this,
When will this all stop again,

I’m washing, lame and miserable,
I’m looking at them unable,
To find my shirt with a star,
Or to look at my skin with a scar,

I’m spinning, through all of this, all of this,
When will this all stop again,
I’m spinning, through all of this, all of this,
When will this all stop again…

The pain that drives

Written By: Frank

I disagree with what they told (us),
Will someone show us our road,
We’ll walk through like no one cried,
I’m sick and tired of hearing laughs,
I know you want to die sometimes,
But don’t, just don’t, just don’t be alive,
For the pain that drives,

If I’d only knew we would collide,
Maybe you took me for granted,
I may not be always wise,
We argue, never on my side,
But you’re the one that I breathe,
I’m the one you don’t scream,
Nothing will change it seems,
For the pain that drives,

Please leave my soul, alone,
Learn the other side of me,
Although my life is getting old,
And everything is so unreal,
But I’m still drunk of your cries,
But don’t, just don’t,
Even if I knew you tried,
Even if I knew you tried,
For the pain that drives…
