My Scars and Stories
13 tracks
  • Release Date: October 10, 2021

In “My Scars and Stories” we narrate stories and expose the bad scars and the good scars, the scars that builds a person. We woke up in the middle of the night and started to write to get things off our chest. Things like the most desperate call or the meerest statement. In this way we expose our weaknesses, as individuals and as musicians, because we believe that music isn’t made only of beautiful stories.

Lyrics



Can you push the right button?
Can you push the right button?
Can you push the right button?
Can you push the right button?

With the red one you can change the world
With the blue you can end the hunger
With the green you can plant one million trees
With the yellow you can dispels all the clouds.

Can you push the right button?
Can you push the right button?
Can you push the right button?
Can you push the right button?
This scar I got when I fell in the backyard
This one I got when we were walking by the riverside
Remember our old tree house and the stories that you’ve told
Stories of ghosts and gold

My scars are history
And stories of my kings
These wrinkles are my soul
That everyone can see
My memories are books
The characters are real
You’ve enriched my life
You know how I feel

The unseen scars of tumbles we took together
That one when we were climbing up the neighbors pine tree
Don’t forget the bike rides and the scratches that we’ve won
Medal for happy souls

My scars are history
And stories of my kings
These wrinkles are my soul
That everyone can see
My memories are books
The characters are real
You’ve enriched my life
You know how I feel

My scars are history
And stories of my kings
These wrinkles are my soul
That everyone can see
My memories are books
The characters are real
You’ve enriched my life
You know how I feel
In my illusions I see gods
Speaking of fire, air and earth
Solving our fate is a routine
Searching for glory in a magazine

My magical bean takes me beyond
In a glance I heard an angel’s song
Forget where it came ‘cause I’m too young
I’m always approaching to the sun

I saw us from the sky
Living side by side
So alone…

This galaxy is too small for me
I need someone to help me believe
In the truth, in the lies
In your face the sweetest disguise

The nights and the days are so mixed up
I awake in the snow and fall asleep in the sun
Saint Peter can say just anything
But now I can’t even dream with spring

I saw us from the sky
Living side by side
So alone…

This galaxy is too small for me
I need someone to help me believe
In the truth, in the lies
In your face the sweetest disguise.

I saw us from the sky
Living side by side
So alone…

This galaxy is too small for me
I need someone to help me believe
In the truth, in the lies
In your face the sweetest disguise

This galaxy is too small for me
I need someone to help me believe
In the truth, in the lies
In your face the sweetest disguise
When you’re gone away
Simply, as you lived your life
You’ve gone through so much pain
You taught us what it was to fight.
And now we’re all alone
Dreaming to be next to you
I’m craving for your arms.

I know you lived a full life
A sad, but a happy life
A poor, but a rich life.

You’ll never leave our hearts,
You told us that so many times.
We’ll not forget your thoughts
You touch when the sun shines.
And every time I breathe
Deep down I know that you’re with me,
You’ll always be with me.

I know you lived a full life
A sad, but a happy life
A poor, but a rich life.

I know you’ll never leave
As long as I remember you
I know you’ll never leave.


I hold you close so dearly,
Remembering the days you raised me
Like another son.

The world is always changing,
But my wishes are still the same,
(That) you were here with me.

It’s now, right now
The beginning of my life
The point of no return
The time to cross the line
And start to shine.

You show me all my virtue
My last fortune, lost within me
You gave me back my life.

It’s time for me to thank you
And to tell you that I will never forget
My hero.

It’s now, right now
The beginning of my life
The point of no return
The time to cross the line
And start to shine
It’s now, right now
The beginning of my life
The point of no return
The time to cross the line
And start to shine.

It’s now, right now
The beginning of my life
The point of no return
The time to cross the line
And start to shine
It’s now, right now
The beginning of my life
The point of no return
The time to cross the line
And start to shine.

Save me
Take me away from this black hole
I’ve been wondering in this land for so many years
Now it’s time for me to dry up my tears

Keep on movin’ on
Always try to approach the sun
You know your reasons to be born
Maybe someday you’ll have your crown

Awake me
These sheets are cold and destroy my dreams
Every wave of the sea can take me away from here
Maybe now it’s my chance to save myself from sin

Keep on movin’ on
Always try to approach the sun
You know your reasons to be born
Maybe someday you’ll have your crown
Give me black lights
And I show myself as I really am.
I wanna be in the spotlight
Until the night comes to an end
Until the night comes to an end.

Show me the moonlight,
Like a werewolf I will change my face.
In the next morning
I will be the same again
I will be the same again.

Welcome to my alternate universe
(Where I can be on my own).
I here I know I can live my life in reverse
(And get away from the gravestone).

Hit me with flashlights,
In the spotlight I where I belong.
Read me the news
And I will tell you were I went wrong
And I will tell you were I went wrong.

Wish me goodnight,
Say that tomorrow we will do the same
And by this time
Everybody will be insane
Everybody will be insane.

Welcome to my alternate universe
(Where I can be on my own).
I here I know I can live my life in reverse
(And get away from the gravestone).

Welcome to my alternate universe
(Where I can be on my own).
I here I know I can live my life in reverse
(And get away from the gravestone)
Welcome to my alternate universe
(Where I can be on my own).
I here I know I can live my life in reverse
(And get away from the gravestone).
The most beautiful thing
About Love is
When he dances with his hand
Laying around your waist.

The soft touch of his hardened hands
So tired, but so sweet
So tender when he feels your skin.

The spinning dance never gets you dizzy
His body his guiding your steps so gently
Keeping you from tripping.

The soft touch of his hardened hands
So tired, but so sweet
So tender when he breaths your skin.

So tired, but so sweet
So tender when he breaths your skin
So tired, but so sweet
So tender when he breaths your skin.
How can you say when you love someone?
It’s the chill down your spine? Maybe you’re the one!
When you walk down the street you’re light the way for all,
Maybe you’re the one.

With just one look I can hear your thoughts,
The touch of your hand makes me feel I’m yours,
The sound of your voice tells me how I’m strong,
Maybe you’re the one!

Oh… Let me explore the world with you,
Surrender to you
I wanna grow old with you
Oh… Let me explore the world with you,
Surrender to you
I wanna grow old with you.

And now I’m sure what you are to me,
My dreams of you are reality,
With you I’ll never feel alone,
I know you’re the one!

Oh… Let me explore the world with you,
Surrender to you
I wanna grow old with you
Oh… Let me explore the world with you,
Surrender to you
I wanna grow old with you.

Oh… Let me explore the world with you,
Surrender to you
I wanna grow old with you
Oh… Let me explore the world with you,
Surrender to you
I wanna grow old with you.

Do you even ear what’s coming out of your mouth?
Do you really think this song is so freaking loud?
I’m tired of your crazy talks they’re bringing me down.
I’m trying to stand up and there’s nobody around.

Don’t say that my feelings worth less than yours,
You say you’re the king, but who made you the boss?

Please Stop!
Stop!
Will you Stop!
Stop!

Every word you say destroy a link of our bound.
You’re breaking to pieces what we have found.
Your trouble mind, so restless, holding us down.
Anywhere you go you try to fit in the crowd.

Don’t say that my feelings worth less than yours,
You say you’re the king, but who made you the boss?

Please Stop!
Stop!
Will you Stop!
Stop!

Please Stop!
Stop!
Will you Stop!
Stop!
Stop!

It’s outrageous for you to take me home.
It’s revolting for me to come home.

I’m so wrecked
I’m so wrecked.

Your superior mind makes me slow.
I’m embarrassed by what you’ve told.

It’s so sad
It’s so sad.

And I try not to show my despair,
I know someone can see me somewhere,
All of them will give me care.

Do you know all my reasons to stay?
Do you think is for something you can pay?

You’re conceited
You’re conceited.

They deserve all good things in the world,
Because they’ll always be my blood.

I’m hamstrung
I’m hamstrung.

And I try not to show my despair,
I know someone can see me somewhere,
All of them will give me care.

And I try not to show my despair,
I know someone can see me somewhere,
All of them will give me care.
Good morning world.
Can you tone it down please?
Why all this howling and hysterical sorrow?

You ruined my day.
This awakening feels like a déjà vú,
I always thought that this would change.

Please stop with your selfishness (you’re wrong)
We’ll try to forgive your mess (be strong)
Leave your past behind (it’s gone)

Give it a try.
A try to give what you would like to receive,
Everyone around you would be pleased.

Bad dreams would stop,
All the nightmares and despair would be gone,
Everyday would be so great.

Please stop with your selfishness (you’re wrong)
We’ll try to forgive your mess (be strong)
Leave your past behind (it’s gone)

Why do you keep screaming?
It’s late and we should be dreaming!
How was your day?
Did your boss teel you things he shouldn’t have said?

Please stop with your selfishness (you’re wrong)
We’ll try to forgive your mess (be strong)
Leave your past behind (it’s gone)
(it’s gone)
Leave your past behind (it’s gone)
I wish I stayed in bed,
I’m tired of hearing people
Complaining about their lives
And saying nothing is right.

Take a look at the world,
See what’s wrong around you
(And) Don’t be wicked to the one
Who’s sitting next to you.

I’m an anti-social,
A lost piece of the puzzle.
The not wanted criminal
The lover undesirable.
A fish drowned on the coast
I’m visible as a ghost.

My greatest fear of all
And one of my many nightmares
Is to become the made-up person
Who they’d planned for me.

That’s why I try to escape
From everyone who hurt me
And no matter what
I want to be alone.

I’m an anti-social,
A lost piece of the puzzle.
The not wanted criminal
The lover undesirable.
A fish drowned on the coast
I’m visible as a ghost.

I’m an anti-social,
A lost piece of the puzzle.
The not wanted criminal
The lover undesirable.
A fish drowned on the coast
I’m visible as a ghost.
I’m an anti-social,
A lost piece of the puzzle.
The not wanted criminal
The lover undesirable.
A fish drowned on the coast
I’m visible as a ghost.
