Track Name: Thief Of Dublin
Every day for me is a battle being unseen in the town
I am acting like a rebel dissatisfied with the crown
I never cared a little 'bout the irish holy ground
Only one thing matters to me: living safe and sound

I am guided by the scent of every motherfucking cent
as the hunger for the money takes me over
When you’re far away from home, i will take the diamond stone
and if I have some time I’m gonna bang your girl

Treading in some puddle fully messes my old cape
Nevermind, I'm in the middle of a usual escape
I felt I have to gather someone else’s gold again
I’ve always been the devil of the lousy city lane

Mommy, tell me how it is possible to leave this shallow grave
Anytime this crappy addiction comes I turn into my own slave
As a child I was very gifted like a prodigy from heaven
What am I now: a scumbag wannabe rascal, heading to the wrong direction
Track Name: The Jester's Way Home
Everyone needs someone to follow
Everyone needs someone to know
Everytime we go on our way
But sometimes we can’t find the home

Lullabies are all the same but noone hears them anyway
A drunken got lost down the lane while seeking for the dreamworld
He used to stare right at the moon, has no reason to call around
As a lonely wolf he always moves back instead for forward

Long ago he played the fool, a mortifying, empty role
Even in the freezing cold he made the people joyful
Slowly he was left alone as they didn’t care about the show
As he watched the afterglow the world’s become so cruel

Yesterday was meant to be his long-awaited freedom
Destiny is far beyond the moonlight horizon
The jester in his solitude is still wide awake
Coz the booze keeps his dreams far away

He didn’t forget how to smile but doesn’t even want to try
left behind a warning sign he sings a hymn for lost souls
Carried out this wicked game and hanging out without his name
Drops a tear and whispers: ’Hey, there’s nothing left to lose'

Yesterday was meant to be his long-awaited freedom
Destiny is far beyond the moonlight horizon
The jester in his solitude is still wide awake
Coz the booze keeps his dreams far away

Yesterday was meant to be his long-awaited freedom
Destiny is far beyond the moonlight horizon
The jester in his solitude is still wide awake
Coz the booze keeps his dreams
Coz the booze keeps his dreams
Coz the booze keeps his dreams far away
Track Name: Jacky Wood
He was a foreign bastard
Nobody knew the rascal
skilled to become a hustler
anywhere in downtown
Never had any idol
Neither carried a bible
Just in case a rifle
Making all bargains done

Daily drinking at Murphy’s
Ready to settle a business
No trace, none of a witness
All of them under ground
Taking crack at the station
After robbing a mansion
That gives him satisfaction
Even his mates are gone

Nobody knows him well enough
the devil gave him all the stuff
to crash some church and paint the walls of shopping malls
Humiliated some crippled guys
begging for money with hopeful eyes
when he’s not in town, oh God knows where he goes

Absolutely worthless and just freaks the people out
Why didn’t he ended up in his mother’s mouth?
He’s spitting on the street and simply wouldn't share his food
For the system he did nothing good
And he was Jacky Wood

And when he met a lady
That bitch wanted a baby
He was not so crazy
Ran away from his hell
After having a bourbon
He doesn’t have any burden
Son of a nasty pagan:
Wanna get virgin girls

Mocking all gingers on the street
Money comes in by selling weed
After midnight throwing up inside the pub
Forever alone but he doesn’t care
A self-destructive punk rocker
A syringe can redeem mental arsenal
Track Name: Misfortune
Wander all night on the Mandolin Avenue
under the hazy, dim streetlights
Carrying a bottle of liquor that usually
brightens up there the stars
Beneath them we stood at the edge of the world,
missing that passional feeling before
Both of us knew that we have to
seal an open door

Passing the Memory Lane and the river shore
summons a wonderful night time
There was a moment the made me think
I saw your face over the street sign
All along, moving on, felt on the road
and now I'm dizzy as noone before
I was a fugitive running away
as it was called for

Remember the house and remember the dreams
listen to all common hardrockin' swings
long story short we have lost our mind
by our misfortune
Now sitting myself all alone in the bar
taking those bitter drinks one-by-one
the remind me I caused a broken heart
a so long torture
Track Name: Drunken Scallywag
Join me in the bar, I like the face of yours, have another round baby
I won’t be at home by three of four next to my girl, she is crazy
Oh my God, it’s you, you stalker bitch, don’t spill my whiskey shot
Cos you’re mad, I’m spent, fuck off darling, noone let you in

Whatever occurs,
it could have been worse
Kiss my demons

Say: Hey!
You may call me a drunken scallywag
Say: Hey!
But I never gonna be your toyboy moneybag
Live in a lie without me honey
Same as we started, ain’t it funny?
All of your faces made my melody
So never come back to hunt me down

Let's hope the devil takes me!

Alright, heading out, though I feel dizzy, let me hold on your boobies
Cannot understand your yelling but why did you slapped so hard my face
Oh dear, rather kiss me, don’t be mean and show me what you got
It’s easy like a cigarette flick, at least in all my dreams
Track Name: Phoenix
Bitching around the great world, we nailed adorable young girls
For the original sins every sailor has to pay
Upon a dawn the sirens are going to fear the pirates
many believers are waiting for the reckoning day

There's a race among the fleet and we're not gonna fall
The first in the line surely will be the Phoenix

Yo-ho, we never surrender
Yo-ho, we get on the board
Our life is pillage and freedom
Load the guns and raise your sword
Yo-ho, we never surrender
Yo-ho, we get on the board
Dance in the mighty hurricane
Honor us all who sail on

We have a raging cruiser with filthy, heretic raiders
Misery brought us onto the sea to serve the amaranth hull
Even this sinful world ends we're going to be some orphans
Never a cry, goddamn, the enemy has to fall!

Listen to me, the battle is on, follow the rhythm and say:
We are the ones who always ride on the Phoenix

All hail this hellbound vessel
Noone leaves the world alive
No more pain and no more sorrow
See you on the otherside
