about

“(…) and within a couple of songs they have played something that sounds like it could have escaped from one of the Interpol’s earlier albums, the better ones, with that combination of solid bass, rattling drums, sweeping guitars and energetic tension. (…) And if their own songs wear their influences boldly – which they undoubtedly do: not just the Chameleons via Interpol axis but early U2, or from more recent times the dramatic drum-driven mini-anthems of The Twilight Sad – then it doesn’t matter. I’ve seen most of the British bands ploughing this particular furrow, and The Mono Jacks have better songs than pretty much all of them. This is a band who could more than hold their own on a British festival stage or support tour, and with the right backing could be the first Romanian band to break out internationally”.

Track Name: When I Was Gone
The reason you came here, my love
Is my sufferance
You’ve made all the way here
While I was praying for it

I’ve paid the price, and so have you
But honey we’re back
We can’t escape, neither forget
You can’t forget, I can’t forget,
We can’t forget the past

I don’t have an answer, for now
I feel I’m alive
Embrace me with passion
Come on; let’s dance for a while
I’ve paid the price, and so have you
But honey we’re back

Honey we’re back
Into this dream
Stars came out
Let’s start a dance
And keep it serene
Don’t stop now
Track Name: Come Back Girl
You were there round the corner
Did the rain make you run?
Come back girl, come back

I could buy an umbrella
Walk you home if you want
Come back girl, come back

For a while,
Let's pretend we are lovers
Freeze the time
You're so beautiful tonight

You were there round the corner
Did the rain make you run?
Come back girl, come back

I got distracted a moment
Turned my head you were gone
Come back girl, come back

For a while,
Let's pretend we are lovers
Freeze the time
You're so beautiful tonight

Pour the wine
And let's pretend that we are lovers for a night
Freeze the time
I want to know you're mine

Come back girl, come back
Track Name: Superstitions
Lately I’ve tried not to screw it up so badly,
I will strive not to manipulate this time
Overwhelmed, but I would like to please everybody
I’ll be waiting for a sign

Thirteen,
Unlucky might seem
Step back,
If you see a black cat

One number if you tell me
I will give you a superstition
One number if you tell me
I will give you a superstition

Come on now; give me some credit once in while
Difficult, but I would like to please everyone
Common sense, I will behave as it is required
I‘ll be waiting for a sign

One number if you tell me
I will give you a superstition
One number if you tell me
I will give you a superstition
Track Name: Untitled
One last time, and we’ll be out of here
GOD knows if our star will ever shine
It’s so sad, because it looked so real
Now we’re stuck just for another time

Ain’t it strange?
Things went bad
Hope our wings
Grow back

I see signs, but I cannot read
And this doesn’t mean I’m going blind
All looks good, but not enough to please
All in all I’m going to decide

Ain’t it strange?
Things went bad
Hope our wings …

We cannot take back
The chance we had
If we lose again, we’ll need a rescue this time

We can’t have back
The chance we had
If we lose again, we’ll end up bad
We need a rescue this time

And I don’t think it will change tonight
Track Name: What Do You Know
You’re in denial
What do you know?
I’m seeing flames
So I suppose
That I’m burning in
You play with fire
And I begin to say:
Walk away, walk away!

We are about to clear it all
Lights will come out, before you know
It’s time now, goodbye heart
So different we are

We had a life, now we’ll have two
I will not try to comfort you
I’ll say it now: goodbye heart
So distant we are

You‘re in denial
What do you know?
I see the waves
So I suppose
That we’re sinking in
In troubled waters
And I’ll begin to sail
Sail away, sail away

We are about to clear it all
Lights will come out, before you know
It’s time now, goodbye heart
So different we are

You were looking elsewhere
Your heart is where your eyes are
Track Name: Let It Burn
Don’t get offended
We'll put out the fight
And nothing will matter
Don’t be afraid
It is only right
We’ll be facing the gutter
I just feel it’s getting late
And I know
We’ll be disputing again

For a while
We’ll be getting along
It is only fair
Once we’ve lost
It will never get back
I must have read it somewhere
I just feel it’s getting late
And I know
We’ll be disputing again

Let it burn, don’t waste it!
Track Name: We're All Getting Older
On a race to nowhere
On a crazy ride
Fight the fire with fire
Searching for the light

Land without borders
Like the promise land
We are tired of scouting
So come give us a hand

Aiming for perfection
But we're losing sight
Now all the angels are gone,
It's not so right

We're all getting older
Reaching out to GOD!

How much more we'll get along
How much more we will try
We'll be questioning everything
Till the end of time

On a race to nowhere
On a crazy ride
Now all the angels are gone
It's not so right

We're all getting older
Reaching out to GOD!

We're all alike
As we are One

We're all getting older
Reaching out to GOD!
Track Name: Maria
It’s been years since you left me
I believe I have been abused
Memories are haunting piranhas

Fault education
Fear the fear but we’re getting used
To fake it, to deal with, we really are

Maria, what have you done,
To make him hurt you so?
Maria, apologize
And make him let you go!

Pray for salvation
Broken home tell me what’s the use
Memories are haunting piranhas

Maria, what have you done,
To make him hurt you so?
Maria, apologize
Don’t make him lose control!

Don’t take all the blame dear
You haven’t done wrong
No room for regrets here
It’s not your fault

Maria, what have you done,
To make him hurt you so?
Maria, you’re praying for
Forgiveness of his soul...
Track Name: Push the Pedal
You’d better take your girlfriend
Just pick her up and drive on to the local bar
Next minute she will notice
You’re jumping on the stage while playing rock guitar

You are loud when pushing the pedal
You will want to push on the pedal

And don’t forget to make up
The glitter will make you shine just like a real star
Your mates just won’t believe you
They’ll keep on wondering while saying “HOW BIZARRE!”

Pull the strings and bend the notes
Play those riffs and rock’em hard
Overdrive at 5 o clock
And go on, free yourself

You are loud when pushing the pedal
You will want to push more on the pedal
