Track Name: Ride
DIRTY SHIRT - RIDE

Collect your gear
Prepare for the ride
Check your weapons
We leave at first light.

We've always fantasized about a journey like this
To find the place of our hopes and dreams
We'll ride until we reach the final destination
So many thousand miles away from here.

On we ride
From sunrise
To sunset
Far and wide
Come hell or
High water
Ride!

We ride on desert lands and over mountain passes
Defy the summer heat and winter cold
There is no turning back, we're taking our chances
Why should we stray away from our goal?

On we ride
From sunrise
To sunset
Far and wide
Come hell or
High water
Ride!

Right from the very start
We followed our heart
To take us far!
To take us far!
Track Name: Bad Apples
DIRTY SHIRT – BAD APPLES

Why do you paint us like this?
Why are you so mad?
You soak the brush in venom
to make us look so bad.

You go and spread on TV
only hate and lies.
We're not all thieves and beggars.
Stop wrecking minds!

Ţine-o pe do
Ţine-o pe si
Ţine-o pe la mândruţa mea
Ţine-o pe mi
Ţine-o pe re
Ţine-o intr-o petrecere.

Ţine-o pe do
Ţine-o pe si
Ţine-o pe la mândruţa mea
Ţine-o pe mi
Ţine-o pe re
Ţine-o pe re, mereu aşa.

Take a good look at yourself
Before you’re judging us.
We all got some bad apples.
You're making too much fuss!

Let's get to know each other,
leave hate behind
Do not give in to ignorance,
open your mind!

Ţine-o pe do
Ţine-o pe si
Ţine-o pe la mândruţa mea
Ţine-o pe mi
Ţine-o pe re
Ţine-o intr-o petrecere.

Ţine-o pe do
Ţine-o pe si
Ţine-o pe la mândruţa mea
Ţine-o pe mi
Ţine-o pe re
Ţine-o pe re, mereu aşa.

Lalalala, lalala, …

Oh, mamma mia,
questa e la vita
dolce ed amara
ma sempre la vita.

Ţine-o pe si
Ţine-o pe la mândruţa mea
Ţine-o pe mi
Ţine-o pe re
Ţine-o intr-o petrecere.

Ţine-o pe do
Ţine-o pe si
Ţine-o pe la mândruţa mea
Ţine-o pe mi
Ţine-o pe re
Ţine-o pe re, mereu aşa.

Lalalala, lalala, …
Track Name: Freak Show
DIRTY SHIRT - FREAK SHOW (LYRICS)

I can't put up again with this freak show
It makes me cringe and puke from the get-go,
But all they want is give us a lot more,
Rating and gain are cast in the main role.

No end for the show
It will be back on tomorrow
To smash all the charts
And crush all the hearts.

It will be about ta da da da …
And will be about ta da da da…
No lie!

No moral code applies to them at all
I watch them toss the brain in a black hole
Selling the show to fools is the main goal
To get them hooked and easy to control.

No end for the show
It will be back on tomorrow
To smash all the charts
And crush all the hearts.

It will be about ta da da da …
And will be about ta da da da …
No lie!

I can't put up again with this freak show,
But all they want is give us some more,
I watch them toss the brain in a black hole
Selling the show to fools is the goal.

Ioi ioi ce a hi, astia ne-or innebuni
Track Name: Trust Me
DIRTY SHIRT – TRUST ME

I serve you my words on the TV,
now they are your daily dish.
Eat them hot and cold, sweet or salty,
give in to my every wish.

Now I'm gonna bring you up to speed
on how you have to live your life.
I tell you this is all you need:
consume, work, shut up and die

You know that you can trust me
because I'm your best friend.
Heed my words and believe me.
Your future’s in my hand.

No need to be a leopard
to make you play my game,
when I can be your shepherd
and make you do the same.

I will teach you how to be a sheep,
let my wish be your command.
I will tell you when to wake or sleep
from now on until the end

I'm gonna teach you how to be meek,
to be always by my side.
I will tell you when to laugh or weep,
when you should live or die.

You know that you can trust me
because I'm your best friend.
Heed my words and believe me.
Your future’s in my hand.

No need to be a leopard
to make you play my game,
when I can be your shepherd
and make you do the same.

Trust me, Trust me
Yes ! You can trust me

I serve you my words on the TV,
now they are your daily dish.
Eat them hot and cold, sweet or salty,
give in to my every wish.
Now I'm gonna bring you up to speed
on how you have to live your life.
I tell you this is all you need:
consume, work, shut up and die

You know you can trust me
Shut up and die
You know you can trust me
Shut up and die

You know that you can trust me
because I'm your best friend.
Heed my words and believe me.
Your future’s in my hand.

No need to be a leopard
to make you play my game,
when I can be your shepherd
and make you do the same.
Track Name: Away
DIRTY SHIRT - AWAY

Caught in your game,
I've been digging
My own grave day in, day out
Need to wake up
Take my life back
Leave the darkness far behind.

You're the source of my disintegration
Now it's time for our separation.

Why don't you go away?
Stop leading me astray
Why don't you go away?
I'm sick of all the pain.

Caught in your game,
I am breaking
You were never on my side
Need my life back
You should leave now
Shut the door on your way out.

In my mind there is no hesitation
Now it's time for our separation.

Why don't you go away?
Stop leading me astray
Why don't you go away?
I'm sick of all the pain.
Track Name: The Business of Life
DIRTY SHIRT - The Business of Life

All my dreams fade away
as life gets tougher every day.
Work all day for an extra buck,
hope I am never out of luck.

The deadline's always yesterday,
the game of life is hard to play.
After the banks knock at my door,
you gotta pick me off the floor.

I, I am dreaming
about a different world
where everybody
has time to live their lives.

My life is more than pain... my life is more than pain.
My dreams are not for sale... my dreams are not for sale.

I wake up and go to bed
with my mind on the daily bread.
No time for family and friends.
The circus never seems to end.

I am caught in this routine,
and sometimes feel I cannot win.
But my life can be more than this.
I need to hang on to my dreams.

I am dreaming
about a different world
where everybody
has time to live their lives.

My life is more than pain... my life is more than pain.
My dreams are not for sale... my dreams are not for sale.
Track Name: Never Say Never
DIRTY SHIRT – NEVER SAY NEVER

Now I know
you were not
the friend I needed by my side.
All I saw,
all I heard
was nothing but a cruel disguise.

You dragged me down,
left me for dead.
You didn't seem to mind.
And now I have
to pay the price
for the mess you left behind.

You swore you'll never
stab me in the back,
I believed your word,
fell into your web.

NEVER! NEVER! NEVER!
Never say never

I move on
So do you
There's nothing else that we can do.
All is said,
all is done.
How could I ever trust in you?

For my own sake
I have to take
your knife out of my back.
The bridge is burned,
now I have learned
all the tricks in your bag.

You swore you'll never
stab me in the back,
I believed your word,
fell into your trap.

NEVER! NEVER! NEVER!
Never say never
Track Name: This is the Day
DIRTY SHIRT - This Is the Day

This is the day I finally break out
and leave behind all fear and doubt.
Another challenge, a new world awaits.
The road is long, [there's] no time to waste.

This is the day
The day I run away

This is the day I finally break out
and realize what life's about.
It's now or never to find my own place
and put the smile back right on my face.

This is the day
The day I run away

I'm ready
for tomorrow.
It's time for me to say goodbye
to my past
lost in sorrow.
The gates of future open wide.
I'm ready
for a new dawn,
and pray that luck is on my side.
I'm leaving
for my new home.
Have to restore my piece of mind.

This is the day
The day I run away

I run away
I run away…
Track Name: Saraca Inima me
DIRTY SHIRT – SARACA INIMA ME

Saraca inima me
Fost-am la doctor cu ie

La doftor si la potica
Si mi-or zis ca n-am nimica

Poticaru ce mi-o zis
Ca leacuri la inima nu-s

La inima este-un leac
Cetera si omu drag

Hai hai inima hai
Inima de putregai
Hai hai inima hai
La multe rele ma dai

Saraca inima me
Iara-ncepe a ma dure
Track Name: Extreme Funky Disco
DIRTY SHIRT – EXTREME FUNKY DISCO

We are stomping, we're moshing, and jumping,
Adrenaline is pumped INTO OUR HEAD.

We all escape to another dimension,
We feel alive, revived, OUT OF CONTROL.

We have a blast and the place is on fire,
We are off the ground as we give in to the sound.

Waves of emotion are taking us over,
This is party time, the place is going wild!

FUNKY DISCO
FUNKY DISCO
EXTREEEEEEME
Track Name: Rocks Off
DIRTY SHIRT – Rocks Off

I see you're trying to get my socks off
You just wanna get your rocks off.

If you want to get your rocks off, ohh
If you want to get your rocks off, ohh.

I see you're trying to get my socks off
You just wanna get your rocks off.
