ū-ū-ū 02:48
I thought the road will show the way The world will open up and tell the truth That hides inside our deepest fears Awake and screaming I am brave But soon we realize Numbness of mind So we hold it dear Time and time again I feel I've missed a part that someone's understood I know at times I've drawn the same conclusions So why don't I just leave it be? Is there such a word That can describe All we hold dear

Over Me 03:25
Tiredness is a state of mind Where boredom borderlines persistence At these moments overwhelmed Lonesome lovers feeling fake Just your shadow over me And just your lips and just your smile Just your shadow over me I waited out there in the cold nights Felt the coldness on my bones That morning lights and overtakes A dream of you that's all I've got
3.
Crowd staring nowhere Found can be none Soon they’ll come after Late I’ll be gone Soon I’ll be gone Deep in the woods my darling babe I’ll find my way To make you stay Although it’s cold Out in the world But soon I’ll be gone Deep in the woods my darling babe I’ll find my way To make you stay Although it’s cold Out in the world I'll find my way

Moon Song 04:14
I am the Moon Round in the apple of your eyes It ripens in blueness around it That hangs in vast blackness inside it The stars keep dancing with sisterly love And give me the strength to orbit the Sun It moves and it grooves me into my motion I reach for you But my force is too weak I searched for the reasons For infinite solutions My head kept spinning Around, strange emotions I feel them coming on They're pulling me in Oh, my dearest of worlds I can't put it in words Your beauty and glistering seas Slowly and steadily turning away While my sisters keep shining with dazzling love And give me the strength to orbit the Sun It moves and it grooves me into my motion I reach for you But my force is too weak I searched for the reasons For infinite solutions My head kept spinning Around, strange emotions I feel them coming on They're pulling me in

My Dear 02:18
This is the last time that I see you Your smile is slowly fading out One step forward through the door And you’re gone, and you’re gone I saw each little step you made We were waiting for the day And I notice something’s wrong Something pure and something strong And I’m drifting, and I’m drifting And I’m fading On my own And now we meet after one and a half years Thousand letters would fill the air, my dear The Sun was shining, you were here My dear, you’re here
6.
Holy Police 04:19
Holy police stop your car Dreams I seek could not translate I've lost my words I've lost my tongue Say it, pray it, dream a lonely dream Thoughts collide and change the tide We'll hide behind my worn out coat Keep me warm and not forget Love me, leave me, kill a wave of doubt These words will work on you Don't you feel it, because I do You'll believe it, now don't you know Fearlessly I skip a glance That tells a lie and long lost truth Flowerbeds I'll lay beside you Fake it, make it, know it's not too soon Heavy truths drip from your knees Trap me in your arms again Heal my heart, but let it go Disturb it, shake it, run so we can make it These words will work on you Don't you feel it, because I do You'll believe it, now don't you know

Coffee 02:42
Coffee, Coffee Coffee, Coffee Coffee, Coffee Coffee, Coffee Coffee, Coffee Coffee, Coffee Coffee, Coffee Coffee, Coffee Coffee, Coffee Coffee, Coffee Coffee, Coffee Coffee, Coffee Coffee, Coffee Coffee, Coffee Coffee, Coffee Coffee, Coffee Coffee, Coffee Coffee, Coffee Coffee, Coffee ... (repeat until the end of time)

Right now we thrive we strive and we drive all so blind-fully free Lock my door, I’m high and I’m trying to find light in the dark Cry your pride away and away it will go with the wind Mind your time before it’s too late to find your way And I’ll vanish like summer and winter will come Longer nights will make up my day The landscape will vanish, the time will be gone Here and now, forever and more Stranger and stranger the world seems around me I cannot define what it is Sometimes it’s love and sometimes it’s hatred Most often it’s somewhat between I was dreaming I was dreaming And I’ll vanish like summer and winter will come Longer nights will make up my day The landscape will vanish, the time will be gone Here and now, forever and more ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā-ā

Starry Night 01:59
Fly through the night Sea now you see Blue sky is blue And so, so are you Following me all through the night Watching me shine like all the stars Leading me to search for the Sun Next to the Moon All through the night Stars shine so bright Night in a way Is my day Following you all through the night Watching you shine like all the stars Leading me to search for the Sun Next to the Moon

I Thought 04:01
Did someone catch you by the hand You know it disappears in time Now short and sweet they said goodbye I'm tired lonely laying on the floor I know I've said too much The thoughts now buried come and feel the touch Of cold uncertainties Piercing through at night Once again your influence will take My words and make them appear fake How come I tricked myself again? How can I end this and unwind? I owe the world too much Expecting something in return My dearest friend Please don't fail me now I thought I almost had That can-not belong I thought I almost had That can-not belong I thought I almost had That can-not belong I thought I almost had That can-not belong I thought I almost had That can-not belong

She’s leaving She’s leaving home (She’s leaving home) She’s leaving She’s leaving home (She’s leaving home) This room Was not much of a home (This room was home) She’s stumbling Every place seems so cold (She’s so cold) Her drunken Eyes say it all (Her eyes say all) Dark is the sky Love will never die Soul seeking love Will never die, never die, never die Dark, so dark that you can’t even see Crawl through tunnels and caves you dig deep No one else is around, you think Here, deep down where the evils of your subconscious mind, dwell She’s sleeping To hide from her dreams She’s searching For someone to hold on to The only Time she doesn’t feel bad (She feels bad) The weight Keeps pulling her down (Weight, down) Awake She slips in a bliss

Saullēkts 02:04
Viņš vientiesīgi skatījās Kā saule lec Nekustīgi virs pļavām gulēja rīta miers Viņš vientiesīgi skatījās Nezinādams kā iesākt Zeme vilka un vilka zaļgani gaišu elpu Iesākt vai pabeigt Rīts mums atbildi nedod Noslēpums neatrod ceļu Atbilžu baltajā birzī Rītam turpinoties arvien Viņš kļuva vecāks un vecāks Dzīvība kustējās pļavās Un galotnēs baltās

about

“Is It Good Enough?” Is the first full length album by the Latvian band The Bad Tones. It's their outcry to the world and captures everything the band members have dreamt, felt and lived through during the last two years. Every song is like a little piece of a bigger picture, it has a certain emotion and a certain sound that brings the listener into its core.

The album was recorded at “Gheijn Studio” in The Hague, Netherlands and is produced by Jasper Ras, who's been involved with the band since they're first EP “Bad Tunes”.
