Track Name: Whiskey Bar
Whiskey Bar (Chris Padera)

Helplessly surrounded by strangers in a strange city
I feel alive but I am close to death
My closest friend has left

The doors are looked
I tear them down
Because now I just want a drink
One shot left five more to go
Surveillance I have lost

On my way to the Whiskey Bar
On my way to the heaven above
On my way to the Whiskey Bar
On my way to the heaven above

Volume up I shout out loud
Because now I just want to dance
Hey litte girl don’t you want to be my mistress for the night
And she came

She came over to me and she yelled
You are a lush now turn around
Your breath smells like a cow

So I stopped for one more drink
to where I am welcome

On my way to the Whiskey Bar
On my way to the heaven above
On my way to the Whiskey Bar
On my way to the heaven above

I am drunk and I feel alright
I think I lost my way
I am drunk and I feel ok
I am on my way back home

Back home
Back home

On my way to the Whiskey Bar
On my way to the Whiskey Bar
On my way to the heaven above
Track Name: Barcelona
Barcelona (Chris Padera)

08001 is where I lived in el Raval
Where the big steel cat greeted every day
I touched its nose not the shiny balls

My mind supersitious asked for joy
This is what I found in my barrio
With Mary Jane and an absinth down
Happiness en el Doctor Dou

Beware of the dark when the hookers rob
On the way down the Ramblas or in el Gotico
Too many nights dirty as beautiful
I lost myself on Plaza Reial

Oh Barcelona my ciudad my amor mi vida
I’d like to stay forever in the city of Barcelona
Oh Barcelona my ciudad my amor mi vida
I’d like to stay forever in the city of Barcelona

I sat down at the beach and I stared at the stars
With an Estrella in my hand and a crappy guitar
Walked up to the Bunkers of el Carmel
To watch the sun go down and I still pretend

That the sun will always shine
In the city that I love

The girls, the wine, the nights I had
I lived a life I won’t regret
A dream came true when Messi played
Dancing in the streets of el Raval

Oh Barcelona my ciudad my amor mi vida
I’d like to stay forever in the city of Barcelona
Oh Barcelona my ciudad my amor mi vida
I’d like to stay forever in the city of Barcelona

One rainy morning my head aches I’m wide awake
Blurry pictures on the wall
I realized the dream I lived has found an end
Oh Barcelona I will return
I promise to

Oh Barcelona my ciudad my amor mi vida
Te quiero hasta siempre mi querida Barcelona
Oh Barcelona my ciudad my amor mi vida
I’d like to stay forever in the city of Barcelona
Track Name: True Ones
True Ones (Chris Padera)

Six long years, well I've been taking my time
Some might say I'm old, but I'm still young in mind
Many new friends I have met, many old friends I have lost
But the true ones are always by my side

In times when I was struggling I hit the railroads hard
Into blackouts I was drinking, oh my world it has turned dark
In excess, what a moron, the drugs (that) kept me high
I beg pardon in humility, oh man, I was a fool
I beg pardon once again for one last time

One more year, well I lost track of time
Trouble wheighs a ton, but I left (the) trouble minds behind
Many places I have been, many new folks I have seen.
But the true/only ones to stay are hard to find

The fights that I was fighting left my broken on the ground
In times of desperation, I surrender, lost my will.
A refugee of my own world, a prisoner of my soul
I berdon in humility, oh man, I was a fool
I beg pardon once again for one last time

Some say it's waste of life, for me it's live in style
As long as I can count on you
My dearest enemy, my closest friend on earth
The one who understands the way
My dearest enemy, my closest friend on earth
The one who understands the way

Six long years, well I've been taking my time
Some might say I'm old, but I'm still young in mind
Many new friends I have met, many old friends I have lost
But the true ones are always by my side

In times when I was struggling I hit the railroads hard
Into blackouts I was drinking, oh my world it has turned dark
In excess, what a moron, the drugs (that) kept me high
I beg pardon in humility, oh man, I was a fool
I beg pardon once again for one last time

Some say it's waste of life, for me it's live in style
As long as I can count on you
My dearest enemy, my closest friend on earth
The one who understands the way
My dearest enemy, my closest friend on earth
Track Name: Insignificance
Insignificance (Chris Padera)

Roaming around in vague city lights
I'm just a little fish in the sea and I can't find
The reef I am searching for the warmth in your arms
Cold as the night, I will stray if you don't mind

But I ask myself
Is it worth all the time
The effort, the pain, the fear in my eyes
Once I am with you I will lose you in a while
To another man or to the time that goes by

I'd rather be dead than wait for the end
Shot in the face, nice cover for a metal band
She said: „Please calm down, let's pretend to be friends
Not lover, not haters, but true“

Truth is, I wanna shout out loud
The insignificance of my small world
Truth is, I wanna cry out loud
I love you like I never loved before

Desperate as I am I am fooling around
Longing for something I could never reach
(I) get involve with someone of my own nest
It feels kind of wrong as I'm betraying myself

Desperate as I am I am fooling around
Longing for something I could never reach
(I) get involve with someone of my own nest
As history is written in the walls we have left

Truth is, I wanna shout out loud
The insignificance of my small world
Truth is, I wanna cry out loud
I love you like I never loved before

Maybe this could be the last time we're together
I am only asking for a smile
Maybe this could be the last time we're together
So I hope, that you will be listening

Truth is, I wanna shout out loud
The insignificance of my small world

Truth is, I wanna cry out loud
I love you like I never loved before
I love you like I never loved before
I will love you like I never loved before
Track Name: Confessions of a Sinner
Confessions of a Sinner (Chris Padera)

I exhale the grief that was a burden to me
All the demons that strained my soul
I was running away from all the consequences
For every action I have done

And for the first time of my life I know that I was wrong

I was bragging about all the girls I had
Every trick that I have land
I took a step to far from this honest part
Just losing myself in these lies

And for the first time of my life I know that I was wrong
And for the first time of my life I know that I should change

What goes around always comes around
Be a wise man when you choose
As a selfish man I have always been to the very top of this world
But the fall is always hard when you are alone

I stole, I stole so many things
So many that I can't count
Another broken heart, another world apart
With luck on my side I was free (of charge)

And for the first time of my life I know that I was wrong
And for the first time of my life I know that I should change

What goes around always comes around
Be a wise man when you choose
As a selfish man I have always been to the very top of this world
But the fall is always hard when you are alone

Oh I beg and scream forgive my please
For all the sins that I commited
Compassion I will try to have
For redemption I confess

And for the first time of my life I know that I was wrong
And for the first time of my life I know that I should change

What goes around always comes around
Be a wise man when you choose
As a selfish man I have always been to the very top of this world
But the fall is always hard when you are alone
But the fall is always hard when you are alone

But the fall is always hard
When you are alone
