Track Name: Media Hold
Electronic ways are modern
Plagues Bubonic
Waves crawl in your head
Don't leave your bed
Don't leave your bed

Parasitic youth
holds onto whatever's new
Icons are found
Radio sound
Radio Sound

Oh no (x4)

Melodic treats
from plastic beat
dollar bills burning at your feet
don't leave your seat
don't leave your seat

Its cultures
and they love to blend
visually narcotic trend
Media hold
Media hold

On to (x4)
Track Name: Casa Hongo
Don't look back and don't surrender
We have long to go my friend
here and now we're one step closer
and with sound we will transcend

People place and their leaders
Kings don't mean a thing to me
Music needs no passport
from Foshon to New Orleans

Let go, of everything you own
Let go, of everything you know
make as much noise as you can
be the loudest caravan
make some music with your goddamn soul at
Casa Hongo (x4)

We've got songs and we've got stories
never need a thing again
you can stand there fake your glory
we have our whole lives to spend

gathering round being loud
and meeting each and every one
with their music and our sound
our journey just begun

Let go, of everything you own
Let go, of everything you know
make as much noise as you can
be the loudest caravan
make some music with your goddamn soul at
Casa Hongo (x4)
Track Name: Flies
There will always be preachers preaching off what's right
Holy book at hand the others holding the knife
as the money becomes scarce and gone
the hungry die and we just move on

And we never learn a thing from our fucked up past
does mankind really hope to last?
Our fate decided by the bank
and so we stay here and we thing

Who decides all of lives values
It was not me, it was not you
who's making lies the same as the truth
It was not me, it was not you
and what are we supposed to do
you stand by me I stand by you
in life or death what do you choose?
you stand by me I stand by you

(Something in french about something)

Who decides all of lives values
It was not me, it was not you
who's making lies the same as the truth
It was not me, it was not you
and what are we supposed to do
you stand by me I stand by you
in life or death what do you choose?
you stand by me I stand by you
Track Name: I Say Stand
We all have our share of fear and worry
like who will be the hero in our story
tired eyes that beg for rest but can't
these overworked legs cannot stand
I say stand while you still have the chance

They want you scared so you no longer speak
silence to them means that you're weak
Obstacles in every single day
Please don't ever wish your life away
I say stand while you still have the chance.
