Track Name: A State of Grace - Protest marches on
This is our protest march and this march’s on you,
this time there is no escape this time we will not fall back,
minority now got a voice and that voice is me,
we will raise our fucking hands,
raise our hands and raise our fucking voice!

I don’t care what you want now we have enough
you have just talked to much now it’s our turn,
I don’t wanna hear your lies now we have enough,
we will raise our fucking hands,
raise our hands and raise our fucking voice!

Protest marches on and on, protest marches o-on

This is our protest march and this march’s on you,
this time there is no escape this time we will not fall back again
Track Name: A State of Grace - Generation Fuck
When I’m walking down the street, you look at me like I’m a thief.
Your education teaches you that I am not good for you.
Tattooed and with colored hair, I am society’s borderline.
And when you are asking me what I’m doing all the time,
the answer is of course…doing crime.

Tell me where my friends are now, they just don’t want to come around.
Don’t tell me where to go tonight, I’ll drink some beer and start a fight.
Go fuck yourself, leave me alone, no one will command me around.
I’m fine the way I walk the earth, I’ll find my way I’ll do my search.
I call it a living… you call it crime.

This is my life, this is my generation,
this is the generation fuck.
This is my life, this is my generation,
this is the generation fuck.
Generation fuck!
Track Name: A State of Grace - 1-50
So you enjoyed the time that we spent
But memories are broken, no one can mend
Don’t you remember the dragon I slew?
the ties that bind are somehow too few
You gotta burn the bridges, starting today
Just do what you must and ruin my day
Your flame got rekindled, I see you burn
If you change your heart, I’ll await your return
I played for you all of my songs
You danced with me and you sang along
Suddenly, I played the wrong kinda tune
But you leaving me won’t spell out my doom

Where did I go wrong, can you tell me?
Is it ‘cause I’m ordinary?
It’s alright, it’s alright, you gotta say goodbye
It’s alright, it’s alright, but your excuse is a lie

There was a time when we were in heat
we fooled around and danced to the beat
Whenever I asked everything was alright
I tried my best every single damn night
now you’ve grown cold and shy from my touch
and I can’t believe that you meant so much
I ran for you 500 miles
Now I feel like I hit the wrong dials
So why did you leave, why did you go?
Why did you switch away from my show?
Why don’t you give me one more chance?
Looks like it was just one doomed romance

Where did I go wrong, can you tell me?
Is it ‘cause I’m ordinary?
It’s alright, it’s alright, you gotta say goodbye
It’s alright, it’s alright, but your excuse is a lie

Scream for me if you want my heart
A passion show, no easy mark
Scream for me if you want my heart
I’ll scream for you and give you a part

From the surface to the mind, we never were one of a kind
Shining bright right next to me, was my own reflection on thee
You’re so shallow, sadly true, here is what I will do
While you feel oh-so-fine, don’t you think that I’ll resign
‘cause your means work for my ends,
I stay behind and fuck all your friends

Scream for me if you want my heart
A passion show, no easy mark
Scream for me if you want my heart
I’ll scream for you and give you a part
Track Name: A State of Grace - I chose Freedom
I don’t always act like the way that you want,
the way that you want for me,
‘cause I just got enough, just got enough,
of the things that you do to me.

I chose freedom for life,
chose freedom for me,
‘cause I don’t care ‘bout your virtue!

Now, I’m flying so high, over the sky,
While I’m living my life
flying so high, over the sky
while I’m living my life like I wanna do

I chose freedom for life,
chose freedom for me,
‘cause I don’t care ‘bout your virtue!

It was predicted for long, predicted for long
so that you will lose your way
the way, that leads you to me, leads you to me
through this endless, jigsaw life.

I chose freedom for life,
chose freedom for me,
‘cause I don’t care ‘bout your virtue!
Track Name: A State of Grace - Big Dipper & The Snow (Acoustic)
It’s Sunday morning, around 3 AM
I’ve done it all, the best that I can
And the snow’s crushing under my feet
I really don’t know where the path me will lead
I’m so finished, exhausted and dead
But I got some questions swirling up in my head:

So I’m asking all the questions that I never really had
But I’m getting all the answers that no one ever said
All the mysteries of existence unravel, now I can
Close my eyes eternally and die a happy man

It’s cold outside, but I’m happy to live
I’m poor as a beggar, but I’d give all I can give
My heart’s flowing over with feelings of joy
Making snow angels like one little boy
But the world is fucked up beyond this cover of white
And some people enjoy with a ghoulish delight

And I’m asking all the questions that I never really had
But I’m getting all the answers that no one ever said
All the mysteries of existence unravel, now I can
Close my eyes eternally and die a happy man

I found a 20, it’ll buy me some bread
I hope I can make it, I’m heavy as lead
It’s turning 6 and I’m reaching my home
My bed is still empty but I’m not alone
My friends are still with me, we’re not apart
I carry them all inside of my heart.
