Wild Eagles 03:53
A shot, thunder long pipes, smoke smell rubber on asphalt knock off the choke tires on fire nothing’s gonna take you higher Wild Eagles cool ride, with pride Wild Eagles see you on the road Buddies are strong ladies on the back but the girls ain’t joking watch your back firing up their own bikes sure to catch all eyes they come along cruising burning hot til heart attack Wild Eagles cool ride, with pride Majestic wings, spread out wide can you hear their call take a ride Wild Eagles a view of life through eagles eyes Wild Eagles so long, see you on the road Lined up on stands girls showing skin enjoying air stream Wild parties & rock'n'roll bands from dusk til dawn machines brand new or tried and true It’s a belief, a lifestyle that you live up to riding together since 1992 Wild Eagles cool ride, with pride Majestic wings, spread out wide can you hear their call take a ride Wild Eagles a view of life through eagles eyes Wild Eagles so long, see you on the road

Somedays are made for troubles When you get the birching There ́s no question about this (It) can be hurting Another slap in the face Let ́s call it one for the road But don ́t you lose your faith We ́re all in the same boat We’re all in the same boat It ́ll be all healed up By the time you get married Won ́t be looking back On the burden you carried Turn your back on the black seeds around ya Take a ride on your roller coaster The head wind turns out smelly So wind up the window Your candy got jelly in your handbag I guess that ́s done now Did you pour the money down the drain As long as you can While the sun shines make hail Cause money makes the man It ́ll be all healed up By the time you get married Won ́t be looking back On the burden you carried Turn your back on the black seeds around ya Take a ride on your roller coaster Sometimes when you don’t move at all When you’re still and quiet Waiting for the ball Hold on, let go Take a step outside Felt so tired for too long now Fighting windmills on the spot so tall Sit tight, you’ll catch the flow You’ll be much faster after all It ́ll be all healed up By the time you get married Won ́t be looking back On the burden you carried Turn your back on the black seeds around ya Take a ride on your roller coaster

Smile 03:13
My oh my here we are now I´m speechless ran out of words wow But I smile at you Oh what else can I do I was just about to give it up My plan was really good but I messed it up And then you showed up Hey you just saved my butt What else can I do Than smile at you You really know how to get me Honestly you surprise me That´s what you always do Just too good to be true Obviously I must be dreaming Admit it you are an angel Coming from high above That´s what I heard of What else can I do What else can I do What else can I do Than smile at you So I smile at you So I smile So I smile I smile at you Now I smile at you I smile Yeah I smile I smile at you And maybe, we will see I hope so, could it be Maybe even you´ll smile back at me

Go Pirates 03:53
You better tie your pants tight The seas are getting rough We ́re not scared, we go further The stronger winds will blow We got the coffer Now let ́s get the treasure Heading out for deep waters Yeah Go, go Pirates go We will wear your men down Push you to the ground Singin' Go, go Pirates go There´s no way we´ll leave you with the trophy, no We sail close to the wind Under the flag A symbol of glory No Prisoners we take Go Hide next to your daughters You should run for your life these are our waters Yoho Go, go Pirates go We will wear your men down Push you to the ground Singin' Go, go Pirates go There´s no way we´ll leave you with the trophy, no Damnation seize my soul When I give you a quarter Or take any from you No bounds No fear For the glory we ́re here To fight in a battle between 2 sides With massive hits and crazy tries. We will fight till the end We’ll take all that you ́ve got So bring it on Take your best shot Stand proud Pirates Let ́s go YO HO YO HO Go, go Pirates go We will wear your men down Push you to the ground Singin' Go, go Pirates go There´s no way we´ll leave you with the trophy no, no, no

Everybody listen To my story ´bout mom and child When love was crushed by panic In Fukushima Why do we have to pay Atonement of the past Why do we have to pay For our parents sins We are all children of Gaia Sharing agony and joy Our hearts so delightful If peace just gets a try Where is my Daddy? My baby cries every time Her screaming voice makes me crazy My mind wandering, hell What a cruel woman I became Now I´m the one to blame Just wanted them safe I´m gonna die instead This was not my intention I´ve done my best Got out of Fukushima Tore our family apart No more touch for the heart No more touch for the soul We gotta take control What´s the sin in our life Divorce now, that´s what I said If you won´t come with us I´m not insane Make up your mind Wake up Japan Nobody said such bad thing Not a single word on TV No word about the damage Or the danger for our health I was concerned ´bout my baby, I got so scared Now I´m down, and I feel bad Like I can never get up again What a fool such a fool I am My Baby´s starving Now my babe, now my baby´s crying If only I could die If only I could die You´re the one to choose Your kid´s the one to pay

It was a bar in Santa Fé, New Mexico There was a gay waiter, he was ready to go I asked him „what would you recommend?“ And then he laughed out loud and Off he was my friend Well, after five minutes as he finally came back He brought me something to drink That made my pupils go black Margarita! Margarita! Margarita! Margarita! La Senorita! Margarita! Con Tequila! Me and my band, we were drinking some Lots and some more We had a funny conversation ´bout one thing you should know Well, what you should know, I can´t remember somehow Call it conclusion of the day, What we´re talking about My sixth glass And the things start twisting You should try it yourself, That´s how she´s kissing Margarita! Margarita! Margarita! Margarita! La Senorita! Margarita! Con Tequila! I had one, I had two I had a third one, how many had you? No chance man, that I had ten! No I´m not gonna pay that motherrockin´check! They chucked us out, push came to shove But was the first drink ever, That I fell in love! Margarita! Margarita! Margarita! Margarita! La Senorita! Margarita! Con Tequila!

It is you who became part of me Is it me who became part of you Just a matter of fact it couldn't work It was too wonderful I guess Maybe Tomorrow you will hate me Probably You think the same about me Don't know anymore What's the best at all 'cause I can't help it So maybe I will fall I could cry and I know you know why I could scream but again it's the same Drinking again although I know it won't help me I'm just trying to feel better anyway Maybe Tomorrow you will hate me Probably You think the same about me Don't know anymore What's the best at all 'cause I can't help it So maybe I will fall So I try not to think about it No more aim so why I'm writing this down Again it's hope that dies at last I'm afraid instead will be me Maybe Tomorrow you will hate me Probably You think the same about me Don't know anymore What's the best at all 'cause I can't help it So maybe I will fall

about

Can you find all the hints on the cover art?
