Track Name: We Need A Fix
WE NEED A FIX
(T. Mantelli 2010)

we need a fix
the only thing we need is a fix
No,no,no.

i know everything I say is meaningless
cause i got nothing to hide except for what i'm
i know everything I say is meaningless
cause i got nothing to hide except for the fact

we need a fix
no use to get no use to give
no use to die no use to live
we need a fix
when everything turns into shit
problem solved problem solved
we need a fix
no matter what we say or what we do
when everything is said and done
we need a fix
this is the game we play for fun
only men, that's what we are

not enough light to let me grow
i stay so small
and so close to my self
in my personal bubble
it's my personal bible
i have no right to wonder how or when
i will shine again
today or not today
this is the question
I dig a hole on the ground
and bury my dreams alive

if you had the chance to see the future
imagine what you would like to see
and don't be afraid
future is what we are doing now
the things which have to come
maybe nothing will change at all
but future is what we are doing now

future is what we are doing now
cause i got nothing to hide except for what i am
future is what we are doing now
cause i got nothing to hide except for the fact
we need a fix
Track Name: Why I'm Dead
WHY I'M DEAD
(T. Mantelli 2010)

from above i see my body floating in the water
a long knife inside my flesh my bones inside my soul
you said i love you so many times
and then wathever happened??
you said i love you so many times
how this could ever happen??

i can't forgive you
i can't forget what you did
i can't forgive what you did last night
you did last night

is it cause i'm poor
is it cause i'm blue
is it cause i'm lovely
maybe it's why i'm dead
is it cause i'm free
is it cause i'm weak
is it cause i'm full of life
that's why i'm dead
maybe that's why i'm dead

i wonder if you will sleep tonight
tell me, did you sate your appetite?
but you 'll be walking through this world again
i wonder if you will sleep at night
but maybe that's why i'm dead

all my dreams are fading while i'm floating in the water
no more life inside my flesh my bones inside my soul
you said i love you so many times
and then wathever happened??
you said i love you so many times
how this could ever happen??

i can't forgive you
i can't forget what you did
i can't forgive what you did last night
you did last night

is it cause i'm poor
is it cause i'm blue
is it cause i'm brand new
maybe it's why i'm dead
is it cause i'm free
is it cause i'm me
which of these?
the reason why you killed me
maybe that's why i'm dead
Track Name: The Wind Of Something New
THE WIND OF SOMETHING NEW
(T. Mantelli 2011)

well we have gone so far
and any road brings something new today
and i just feel we must go on
well we have seen so much
it's even hard imagine something more
get ready for what's going on

don't you feel the wind of something new
don't you feel the wind of something more

yes i feel i must go on
where you are there's my home
and after all we live for a while and I
i feel i must go on
i feel we must go on
cause I love the times you want to wonder me

out of the rules i know the things i'm doing
last more time than me
well i just think i'm going on
the choises we had made i'm sure can take
the same old rust away
prepare for what is going on

here's the wind of something new
here's the wind of something more
Track Name: Mr B
MR B
(T.Mantelli 2011)

once in your life get what you deserve
fair today in the papers
you failed your way and it's good to me
well now i know where you go where i go

I can drive it by my self
now defeated is your name
hate to love for a better day
move this failure way to live away
you can't take us to hell
there's no more time to say

shame on you mr b

your greed is great i can't follow you
well, it's a shame you're not my kind
away from this place it's not right for you
you failed your way not my way not my life

I can drive it by my self
you displaced my will
about things i can not accept
take your full responsability
you can't throw us away
there's no more time to say

shame on you mr b

you can't always get what you want
no you don't
Track Name: Yesterday (Like The Beatles Say)
YESTERDAY (LIKE THE BEATLES SAY)
(T. Mantelli 2010)

i am with you
look forward till tomorrow
look forward till tomorrow's gone
time's an excuse
stay cool there's no tomorrow
stay cool there's no tomorrow

may i ask a question?
how do you see tomorrow girl?
it never hit your wisdom
your wisdom made of yesterday
may i ask a question?
a question about tomorrow girl
it should defeat your wisdom
look forward till it's yesterday

yesterday
like the beatles say

time is with you
look forward till tomorrow
look forward till tomorrow's gone
wait till another day to come
wait till another day is gone

time the same old excuse
no future and no past to loose
just present speeding fast
no future for me
is what the pistols sing
we stay here floating
between brackets of emptyness

may i ask a question?
how do you see tomorrow girl?
this should defeat your wisdom
your wisdom made of yesterday
the same old excuse
no future and no past to loose
never will never did
look forward till it's yesterday

yesterday
like the beatles say
Track Name: Just For Us
JUST FOR US
(T. Mantelli 2011)

i forget my lies
to make you a part of my life

in the sharpest light
it never ends the wave of love
no need to say i know for sure

it's not for you
it's just for us
Track Name: Simple Entertainment
SIMPLE ENTERTAINMENT
(T. Mantelli 2010)

for such a long time
i've been waiting for the big one
no other place in this world
easy to believe in
we all look for a sunny place to die

eventually i'm here where i want to be
and i give all i' ve got to give
you want and take it
we 're doing well up in flames
we've got a fire inside
we're so bright tonight
a promise too good to keep
i'm not that young boy you told tales to
so tell me it's simple self esteem
simple entertainment

it''s on days like these
when everything stops
we understand that only
little things will keep us together
and when another morning comes
you're not there to hold my hand
pieces missing everywhere
in the game we play for fun
you've never seen my inner place
but it is not too hard to swallow that pill
screw it up
Track Name: Before We Perish
BEFORE WE PERISH
(T. Mantelli 2011)

i believe in people
just when they leave me alone
i believe in justice
now excuse me, i'm going to jail
i believe in god father
even if he don't in me
i belive in life
it's a shame i'm gonna die

take me to a place and then meet me there
before we perish
choose another promise too good to keep
before we perish
show me there is something to go on

i believe in ideology
sounds like a new mithology
nowadays politicians
they will take us to hell with them
i believe in my money
i believe in my fears
it's a shame i'm gonna die

|non credo a tutto non credo a nulla|

i believe in witches
i make love with them everyday
i belive in future
it's a shame i'm gonna die
Track Name: My Personal End Of The World
MY PERSONAL END OF THE WORLD
(T. Mantelli 2011)

the words of an old wise man
the time the stars are made
has a start has an end
we're so small and it sounds so strange
i think it's not the end
i think it's just an end
so stay with me my friends
and sing this song again

maybe we'll be upside down
maybe we'll destroy the money
maybe another planet will fall in love with earth

anyway i think it's not the end, it's just an end
anyway i think we'll be able to party again
party again....

maybe we'll be upside down
maybe we'll destroy the money
maybe another planet will fall in love with earth
maybe we'll be upside down
maybe another planet will fall in love with earth
love with us
love with earth
love with us
maybe another planet will fall in love with us
Track Name: Yeah Nothing
YEAH NOTHING
(T. Mantelli 2011)

it means nothing
what you saying to me (while i'm asleep)
cause you want to fill my dreams with useless needs

cause you still believe in everything you see
it means nothing
what you saying to me
i just told you i don't need your wants and needs

nothing
do you think you're free?
i wont leave and give and pay this game my dreams
yeah nothing
when you come to me
cause you still believe in everything you see
yeah nothing
we're both nothing

| everything you see |
it means nothing

yeah nothing
when you come to me
cause you still believe in everything you see
it means nothing

| who do you think you are
who do i think i am
we are both nothing
and nobody really cares
don't know who you are
don't know who i am
we are both nothing
and nobody really cares |
Track Name: Plutonium Love
PLUTONIUM LOVE
(T.Mantelli 2011)

wait, if you think yours is mine
it's the wish of the last time
wait, if you wanna put in my mouth
words which i just can't say

wait, forget about you and i
nothing ever could bring it back
wait, i'll miss your plutonium love

oh baby, i gave you all of my passion
oh baby, and all i get is damnation

is this your way to be over loved?
is this your plutonium love?

wait to see me when i'm just gone
learn to live without me, i'm done
till you think you will not belong to me
i will damn the way i have loved you so
Track Name: Maybe It's You
MAYBE IT'S YOU
(T. Mantelli 2011)

i remember
all the times you were here to say it ("i told you so")
i remember
all the times you were sure to make it

i remember
many times you were glad to say it
just remember
could not seem but i'm going to make it

i've got something in my head that's going on
there is something in my head going to explode
i've got something in my head making me upset
i've got something in my head that's going on
maybe it's you

i remember
all the times you were glad to say it ("i told you so")
just remember
time is short but we're going to make it

i remember

i've got something in my head that's going on
there is something in my head going to explode
i've got something in my head making me upset
i've got something in my head that's going on
maybe it's you
