about

Founded in 1993, Donots have made a name for themselves as one of the top punk bands not only in Germany, but throughout Europe. Well-respected in the international punk community, Donots have shared stages with the likes of Blink 182, The Hives, Green Day, Sum 41, Iggy Pop, NoFX, The Offspring, Weezer, Linkin Park, Anti-Flag, Jimmy Eat World, The Cure, and many others. Not to be content with success at home, Donots now continue to expand their punk prowess into other countries with their latest release entitled “Wake The Dogs” – the band’s ninth studio album overall and second to be released in the US. The US edition of “Wake The Dogs” features 14 new songs from the punk-veterans, plus 2 additional bonus tracks not included in the original German release.

Track Name: Wake the Dogs
Wake the dogs
Spill the water drop by drop
Gotta smash it up
Hit me like an uppercut again
And I'll wake you up
You're gonna need another buzz
Yeah, I'll pick the lock
I'll crash the gates and then I'll knock at your door

Wake the dogs (ayayayaaa!)
Wake the dogs (ayayayaaa!)
Wake the dogs (ayayayaaa!)
Cause that's our drop and we'll knock knock knock
Wake the dogs

Eyes wides hut
Like it's always 6 o'clock
The bombs about to drop
Are we swimming belly up in the end?
Cause you've been locked out, blocked out, what do you do?
I've been knocked out cold, what is it to you?
Let's wake the dogs
Crash the gates and then we'll knock knock knock

Wake the dogs (ayayayaaa!)
Wake the dogs (ayayayaaa!)
Wake the dogs (ayayayaaa!)
Cause that's our drop and we'll knock knock knock
Wake the dogs

Cause you've been locked out, blocked out, what do you do?
I've been knocked out cold, what is it to you?

Wake the dogs (ayayayaaa!)
Wake the dogs (ayayayaaa!)
Wake the dogs (ayayayaaa!)
Cause that's out job so hit me up
Wake the dogs (ayayayaaa!)
Wake the dogs (ayayayaaa!)
Wake the dogs (ayayayaaa!)
Cause that's our drop and we'll knock knock knock
Wake the dogs
Track Name: Into the Grey
Sail on, sail on
My sinking ship sail on
When up is down
And wrong is right
Sail on

Row on and on
my fellow men go on
Till we get lost
between the night
and dawn

Hold on, hold on
my little boat, float on
to hell and back
until we´re dead
an gone

Sing on and on
Join in, mx friends, c´mon
Won´t keep you warm

hey hey
whatever they say
hey hey
Into the grey
To hell we race
all night and day
they say, hey hey

hey hey
whatever they say
hey hey
whatever we stay
just keep the course
into the grey
they say, hey hey
Track Name: Come Away With Me
Take me back to day one
Right back where I belong
And take me over the edge
And over again

Take me back to square one
Right back where it's begun
And push me over the edge
And stop me again

Come away with me
While the world's asleep
Walk from sea to shine and sea
Find ourselves a place to be

Take me back to square on
Right, right into the sun
And lean right over the edge
And start at the end

Come away with me
While the world's asleep
Walk from sea to shine and sea
Find ourselves a place to be
Come away with me
Anywhere but here
While the world is fast asleep
Find ourselves a place to be

Day by day and mile by mile
Over the edge, over again
Day by day and mile by mile
Over the edge, over again

Come away with me
While the world's asleep
Walk from sea to shine and sea
Find ourselves a place to be
Come away with me
Anywhere but here
While the world is fast asleep
Find ourselves a place to be

Day by day and mile by mile
Over the edge, over again
Day by day and mile by mile
Over the edge, over again
Day by day and mile by mile
Track Name: You're So Yesterday
Now i don´t wanna remember
But it´s like i can´t forget
my heart is here, my mind is now
I made it out alive somehow

Well, you still look like November
and i keep the hole in my head
i´m half the man, you´re twice as grey
but i sing my life away
and you´re so yesterday

Said i don´t wanna remember
but it´s like i can´t forget
Your heart´s still here ,you´re out
of town
you made it out of love somehow

But i´m beyond forever
and you still chew on the past
Tomorrow´s near, the future´s now
three strikes, you´re so yesterday

You´re so wrong and
you´re so yesterday
You´re gone and
you´re so yesterday
Track Name: Don't Ever Look Down
Weel, I've been there before
And I know how it ends
The bricks will not move
If I Don't wake my hands
Takes hours to climb
And seconds to fall
So don't you look down
When you take on that wall

Gallows are patient
So hang in there
Who ever told you
This life was fair?
Takes hours to climb
And seconds to fall
So don't you look down
When you take on that wall

Well, I've been there before
And I know how it ends
Your heart skips a beat
The feet skip the dance
Takes hours to bleed
A lifetime to mend
And maybe forever
to understand

The fact that our scars
Can only contain
The memories and stories
But not the pain
Takes hours to climb
And seconds to fall
Don't ever look down
When you take on that wall

So dive right into the clouds
And never ever look down
Don't let your feet
touch the ground
And don't look down,
don't look down

Don't you ever look down
Track Name: Born a Wolf
Shape shifters, come on out and play)
I was born a wolf
I walk with rats
I got rased by lions
I hunt in packs

Born free nothing´s gotta give
You gotta make do with what you don´t have

Up in arms
Don´t hit the lights
Live in shadows
Long Live life

Like a wolf
I walk this town
Like a wolf
I´m coming down, down, down
I´m stray dog and i´m out here on my own
I was born a wolf, I´ll find my way bac home

I was born a wolf
I´ll grow wings one day
All you shape shifters
Come out and play

if i get away with it, then i guess it ain´t no crime
I was born a wolf, i´m taking back what´s mine
Track Name: Control
It takes a heart to forgive
Takes a soul to forget
Takes up all of your time
You're going nowhere fast
Gotta get over yourself
And bury the dead

Now if you make a guess
You know your luck won't last
You find that lies don't lie
And the past won't rest
Makes you get down on your knees
And say: Off with the head

You gotta throw it away
It's getting out of control


It's got you spinning around
Turns you upside down
Takes your final breath
Before you sink and drown
It's only in your mind but
It makes you wanna lose your head
Track Name: Solid Gold
Golden rule, don't ever rust
Like solid gold we treat our trust
Every don't is still a must
Don't grow old, don't turn to dust

We sing
Oooooooooooooooooooh
We can go anywhere
Ooooooooooooooooooh
We can go anywhere

Golden rules won't ever rust
Like solid gold we treat our trust
Stand by me, don't ever come undone
Stand by me, cause the proudest lungs
are the loudest ones

So sing
Oooooooooooooooooh
We can go anywhere
Oooooooooooooh
We can go anywhere

Golden rules, don't ever rust
Golden rules won't ever rust, no
Track Name: You Got It
Nothing destroys like destruction
Just put me to the rest
C'mon, let me be my best
I feel like pushing mountains
I feel like eating glass
C'mon, let me make a mess

You got it
You got it
You got it...

You gotta stay up with me
Sing out of key
Pissing the night away
If I don't sleep
Nobody sleeps
Bring on the light of day

You got it

Nothing destroys like destruction
and my demons never rest
C'mon, I save the worst for last

You got it!
Track Name: I Don't Wanna Wake Up
Oh, you would never say you love me
I guess somehow I always knew
That you would never leave me lonely
Despite the things you put me through

So keep it coming, keep it coming

But I don't wanna wake up all alone
You're my love, my life, my friend
and you're my home
Said I don't wanna wake up all alone
You're my heart, my family, my place to go

No, you don't need to say you love me
I know you'll always swing and sway
Go on and walk your walk without me
As long as you don't turn away

Just keep it coming, keep it coming

But I don't wanna wake up
Said I don't wanna wake up
I don't wanna wake up
No I don't wanna wake up
Track Name: Chasing the Sky
Help me live a lie
While our batteries are running dry
Let me wear your face
And be somebody else
Live it up in another hell
Where there's nothing left to say

One day
I'll be on my way
One day

Are we chasing the sky
As the best years go passing by
Pointless, but we don't understand
Are we racing for time
Like a train that will not arrive?
Restless for hours on end

Take me for a ride
Till the sky is open wide
Then make me fall from grace
And be somebody else
Drop me off in another hell
There's nothing, nothing, nothing left to say

One day
I'll be on my way
One day

Are we chasing the sky
As the best years go passing by
Pointless, but we don't understand
Are we racing for time
Like a train that will not arrive?
Restless for hours on end
(And all out of hand)

One day
I'll be on my way
One day

Are we chasing the sky
As the best years go passing by
Pointless, but we don't understand
Are we racing for time
Like a train that will not arrive?
Restless for hours on end
Chasing the sky
As the best years go passing by
Pointless, but we don't understand
Are we racing for time
Like a train that will not arrive?
Restless and all out of hand
Track Name: All You Ever Wanted
You're on your own now
So rise to the occasion
You're growing old now
And you know that time won't wait

You're twice the price now
It's a no-win situation
You sell yourself out
With every war you wage

You're all you ever wanted
You're too much for yourself

Don't let anybody in
Before you fit in your own skin
I'm on the outside looking in
I miss the way you're never been
You're all you ever wanted
I'm on the outside looking in
And you are better off

Without you
Without you

You're on the raod now
But you got no destination
Pick up the phone now
Let me know that you'll be late

You think you know now
But you lack the education
Pick up the phone now
Just admit you can't relate

You're all you ever wanted
You're all I ever wanted
Track Name: Manifesto
If I don't sleep, nobody sleeps, code of the street
You know my deeds, I sow seeds and I chop trees
Keep it straight every day, last dance, bombs away
You peolple take a beating

Say my name, say my name

When you're with me, my heart beats, my heart speaks
One mind is loud, two make a crowd, three make a scene
We're meant to take the lead so drop the latch key, kids
Turn off your TV

Say my name, say my name

Well I state my case under oath and lie
And I shout my truth right at the sky
(Whooohoooooooo....)

(Look, we got swords for spines, we have diamonds for hearts,
we got no destination but we're willing to go there and we are angry!
What do they have? They've got nothing! They are nothing!
They're nothing but vacant minds living in vacant homes.
Let's make a vow, right now!
Let's not grow up like them, alright?)

Said I state my case under oath and lie
And shout my truth right at the sky
(Whooohooooo....)
And if one day I'll say good-bye
I'll leave my mark in the sands of time
(Whooohooooooooo...)
Track Name: So Long (feat. Frank Turner)
Shut your eyes now
The world looks better
with the lights out
This is our time now
To create and invent
We can be giants now
So let's wait for the blackout
This is our time now
To believe and pretend

Who's to hold up the sky
if not you and I?
So long so long so long
Who's to tame the volcanoes
on mountains high?
So long so long so long
Just how long does it take
to drink oceans dry?

So long so long so long
And every storm has got its own eye
(And someday we'll say
goodbye to goodbye)
So long so long so long, sail on

Put the knife down
Don't you cut your own heart out
I need you alive now
Learn to hold your own hand
Come to life now
Let's leave before sundown
This is our time now
Put an end to an end

Hold on, hold on
