about

About "the road not taken".
I am very happy to finally release this collection of songs. It's been a long road and we all worked really hard for the making of this album. For the past two years i travelled a lot around Europe playing music in the street, trying to collect stories and also cultivate my musical and artistic awareness so that my new work has depth.
I am very proud to have worked with many talented musicians for the making of this album that is for me, a milestone in the career of me and my band. Those musicians have invested effort and time and resources for the best result, and a great part of that sound is credited to them and for that, i will be forever gratefull.
The road not taken contains 11 songs. Some of them are true stories some of them are inspired facts remotly connected, but all of them are songs of truth, meaning that the originate from the bottom of our souls in it's purest form, enjoy the ride.
Remi.

Track Name: In stone
I want you to promise
Our love is strong
I want you to sign a contract
I want you to write in stone

I want you to notice
I've never been wrong
I want you to sign a contract
I want you to write in stone

and shape your world around it
And tell my friends about it

right now

sitting here in the house of pain
the silence here will drive me insane
i need you
won't you come back home
i cant spend the night alone

ive been heartbroken for a day
i said some things i had to say
i need you

i wanna come back home
i dont do well on my own

sitting here in the house of pain
the silence here will drive me insane
i need you
won't you come back home
i cant spend the night alone

ive been heartbroken for a day
i said some things i had to say
i need you

i wanna come back home
i dont do well on my own
I dont do well on my own
Track Name: Folk n rolla
i grew up in a house
right across the sea
i didnt like the priest
and he didnt like me
id better run run run run

My mama told me boy before you be a man
Theres plenty of things you gotta understand

Never get in trouble never touch a gun
Always run for cover always try to run
that's right run run run run

Where i'll lay my head
I really i don't know

I watched my friends growing into men
took hard calls that life threw at them

I met a girl she was young and sweet
she turned my life around and gave me everything

but i just run run run

Where i'll lay my head
I really i don't know

I travelled through mud and i travelled through sea
there aint much left that i need to see

My whole damn life i lived for free
thanx to my only philosophy
i always run run run

Where i'll lay my head
I really i don't know

Oh how i miss my home
right across the sea
And if i lose my way
There's no place i'd rather be
No other place will set me free
Track Name: I wait for you
And i wait for you
To relapse
To regain yourself

I am a slave
like you
i demand
nothing more than a fool

and i wait for you
and i wait for you
And the day goes through

and i waste my youth
and i waste my youth
but i know

that my heart wont take it
my soul wont make it
my eyes wont fake it
Its complicated

Our lives now wasting
Our minds now tested
Our souls infected
it's as expected

and i wont stand by you no more

As you fall asleep
to relax
to collect your thoughts
Stand again, on your feet
think that time, will never repeat

and i wait for you
and i wait for you
And the day goes through

and i waste my youth
and i waste my youth
but i know

that my heart wont take it
my soul wont make it
my eyes wont fake it
Its complicated

Our lives now wasting
Our minds now tested
Our souls infected
it's as expected

and i wont stand by you no more
Track Name: The devil in me
Nothing can hold me still
i ve got the devil in me

You can hold my hands
put chains round my feet
but you could never stop me

i ve got the devil in me

You can throw me down
put my face to the ground
but you could never stop me

i ve got the devil in me
i ve got the devil in me

No prison can ever hold me
I m freeer than you'll ever be

IVe got the devil in me

No prison can ever hold me
I m freeer than you'ever be

IVe got the devil in me
IVe got the devil in me


And you could never steal
The power that lies in me

You can give it try
I'll spread my wings and fly
And you will never catch me

I've got the devil in me

Cause im free in my heart
You would not understand
But you could never stop me

i've got the devil in me
i've got the devil in me

No prison can ever hold me
I m freeer than you will ever be

IVe got the devil in me

No prison can ever hold me
I m freeer than you will ever be

IVe got the devil in me
IVe got the devil in me

Vultures want to eat my soul
I wont die in this hellhole
cause i
I've got the devil in me

My flesh may shred my skin will die
But my soul is always alive
cause i
I've got the devil in me
Track Name: Just once
You knew that we would part though
I sang to you songs
That came straight from the heart

Right from the soul
It’s not easy
And it didn’t feel right

I saw you on the street just the other day
It’s been only one week since
You went away
It’s not easy, and it didn’t feel right
You gotta dance, dance with me girl
Just dance, dance with me girl
Just once, cause I never really had
A chance

Cause you look like the devil
Breathing fire while I tremble
And die

My life goes on just like you said
Sometimes though it seems that i
Wish I was dead
It’s not easy to do it right

I wish that I could say that
I wish you the best but you
Just hurt me deeper than all
The rest so baby
If you wanna do right

You gotta dance, dance with me girl
Just dance, dance with me girl
Just once, cause I never really had
A chance

You gotta dance, dance with me girl
Just dance, dance with me girl
Just once, cause I never really had
A chance

You gotta dance, dance with me girl
Just dance, dance with me girl
Just once, cause I never really had
A chance
Track Name: Symptoms
What can i say now girl
When i look in your eyes i feel us not being close

You kinda liked me one day
But you changed your mind cause it doesn't cost you a lot

I don't want what you want
But i can tell the diference
cause i need you, you don't need me

I don't know the symptoms
But i guess it shows when you are not sleeping alone

And I don't hate nobody
But he made you laugh and he didn't do half of what ive done

I don't want what you want
But i can tell the diference
cause i need you, you don't need me

I don't want what you want
But i can tell the diference
cause i need you, you don't need me

I don't want what you want
But i can tell the diference
cause i need you, you don't need me
Track Name: The low days
Take the train that we all know
the one we hate it departs

Sirens souns when you get in
The breaks dont work once it starts

The following night is yours now
You step away from my sun

The sign is there on your shoulder
It shows that i was your man

I don't know what went wrong
The story of my life
and it's you inside my head
until the next time

A poem a day and an insight
the will to be by your side

A touch of luck and some red wine
made a good state of mind

I will cover your ears
when it gets too loud

It still hurts me a bit though
that i couldn't make you proud

I don't know what went wrong
the story of my life
and it's you inside my head
until the next time

I gotta learn to beat the odds
and i have to beat time
and if i ever learn to win
victory is mine
Track Name: I want her
I want her
I saw her across the street

and now i need her
i need her here with me

I have to see her, deceive her
Make her lose her grip


And now i want her, believe me
I know she is good for me

I kinda see it, imagine
The way the we would be

And i'm obssessing, it's depressing
But i can't change a thing

I'm gonna love you
till the end of days


I found her
And she belongs to me

I dream about her
Into my deepest sleep

I always see her
and hear her
Like a crazy dream
Track Name: The road not taken
I left my heart when i reached
the crossroads
and i took the other way

I wasnt so sure
and deep down i was afraid
But i ve come to learn
there's more than just one way


and all the other roads i didnt take
like dreams of a long sleep but i'm awake

And all the other promises i didnt make
i walked away some say i escaped

What if
what if
what if the road is all we ll ever have

what if
what if
If we arrive then what is left for us
we ll never know

I saw the map i did the math
i planned my course
For each and every step

No matter what i did i always
came across
a choice, a set of doors


And all the other places i didnt see
Part of a plan that we remain to see

And all the other people i didnt meet
will live their lives, be what they want to be


What if
what if
what if the road is all we ll ever have

what if
what if
If we arrive then what is left for us
we ll never know
Track Name: Something for the road
You might need
Something for the road
Everything counts
And as you go
Everyone you know
Every little thing
Will change

Cause you ll be gone
Someplace else
And I ll be here
In this mess

You will think of me
But the feeling deep
Will go

Tonight Ill drink
Something for the pain
And my head will spin
Once again

And as I go
Your memory will grow
Something for the wind
To blow

And you ll be gone
Someplace else
And I ll be here
In this mess
You will think of me
But the feeling deep
Will go
Track Name: Goodbye
She had a dream
she didnt know why
to live by the sea
to always be free

He was taken away
they came in the night
They gave him a gun
They cant understand

Goodbye goodbye
goodbye my lover he cried
Goodbye goodbye
goodbye my lover she cried

For ten long years
He tried to escape
And fly to the west
Like a bird in her nest

She was married again
She didn't know why
This time not out of love
With a different man

Goodbye goodbye
goodbye my lover he cried
Goodbye goodbye
goodbye my lover she cried
