Track Name: Solely Profit
Switch on TV can‘t believe what I hear, what I see, is this the news or just another daily soap? Seems like earth goes down the pan, we‘re heading straight towards decay / We’re heading straight into decay! Sinking ships causing another black tide, sea-life dies! Pollution grows! All around the world / Global warming kills the remainders of the wildlife seems to me like we should feel compassion for our world / And still the companies are solely into profit / Throwing the world into a garbage can / Giving a fuck about our future / Why should we care? Why should we care? Why should we care about tomorrow if we can‘t make it through today?? Don‘t you get the signs of the revenge of the world? The forces of our nature getting worse every time! Lead to radiation and leaving millions broke / This ain‘t no horror movie but the truth! And still the companies are solely into profit / Throwing the world into a garbage can / Giving a fuck about our future / Why should we care? Why should we care? Why should we care about tomorrow if we can‘t make it through today??
Track Name: To All The Ones
Work is done, welcome the weekend, meet my friends and load the van / We’re back on the road! A long ride to our next show, enough time for beers and more / We’re finally drunk as we arrive... This song is a thank you to all the ones, who attend our shows and sing along / Without you it’d be only half the fun! Lot of drinks yesterday and not enough sleep at all, small eyes as we get up / Aching heads and nervous stomachs and we didn’t leave in time, so we’ll be late again / This song is a thank you to all the ones, who attend our shows and sing along / Without you it’d be only half the fun! Again it’s junk food for breakfast, no shower in sight and our girls far away / Shouldn’t sound like we just have hard times, no! Indeed we do enjoy every single day! Work is done, welcome the weekend, meet my friends and load the van / We’re back on the road... This song is a thank you to all the ones, who attend our shows and sing along / Without you it’d be only half the fun!
Track Name: Wrong Direction
Ain’t this the wrong direction? Have you ever thought ‘bout what they’ve done? I’m watching them talk, their words reach my ears, but nothing I hear makes any sense to me / Can’t grasp what they say, can’t grasp what they want / The world that they seek is a nightmare to me! Using words like “performance” or “power to compete” they fill their own pockets by taking from the poor / Still we do encourage them by standing still! Ain’t this the wrong direction? Have you ever thought ‘bout what they’ve done? They gotta feel reaction or the chance to stop this lunacy is gone! Still they fake compassion, they knew how we live, but I don’t think that they ever did / Or could you imagine one of those guys abstaining from anything? Say can you imagine? Well, I can’t… Ain’t this the wrong direction? Have you ever thought ‘bout what they’ve done? They gotta feel reaction or the chance to stop this lunacy is gone! You promise heaven and earth when you want our vote / Once in charge it’s all ‘bout staying in power / And you assist the ones who payed you off!! Ain’t this the wrong direction? Have you ever thought ‘bout what they’ve done? They gotta feel reaction or the chance to stop is gone! Have you ever thought ‘bout what they’ve done?
Track Name: Lost Inside Yourself
I remember times when you were happy, life was good and everything was alright / You watched me doing my first steps, later on you taught me how to ride a bike / Used to help me with my homework, took me to my first soccer game / A few years later I had my first beer with you, we had great talks till the break of the dawn / It was a lingering decline no one noticed till that time you began forgetting names and faces of your dearest ones / Today you’re lost inside your mind, good old days lie far behind / Slimmed down, confused, you’re just a shadow of your former self / And it makes me so sad to see you like that / I don’t know what you think, I don’t know how you feel / You’re trapped inside your cell, your apathetic self / Staring at the ceiling, you’re just an empty shell / Can you feel our love, do you notice our efforts, recognize my face even only just sometimes? Do you need company, do you often feel lonesome? Do you still realize when we’re coming to see you? Do you miss your house, have you already noticed we were forced to sell it to afford your care home? Do you know we lately had a new arrival? Now you’re a great-grand daddy! Memories are fading, I’m afraid to lose them, too / We shared so many precious moments, I’m afraid to lose you... And it makes me so sad to see you like that / I don’t know what you think, I don’t know how you feel / You’re trapped inside your cell, your apathetic self / Staring at the ceiling, you’re just an empty shell
Track Name: Falling Down
I travelled to the end of the world just for having some alone time / I‘m thinking about my last few fucked up years / I can‘t believe how things have changed / My life went in a different direction / I never thought it would turn around like this / I was as high as I could ever get / Then the world‘s crashing down / The world‘s crashing down / I‘m falling down! It took me a while to get up on my knees / Now I‘m trying to stand up again / But the memories keep pushing me down on the floor / I tried to erase them with whisky and beer / My life went in a different direction / I never thought it would turn around like this / I was as high as I could ever get / Then the world‘s crashing down / The world‘s crashing down / I‘m falling down! But everywhere, everywhere I look something reminds me of you! Sometimes I wish I‘d never met you, sometimes I wish I never knew / How perfect my life just could be / When it all seemed to work out / How perfect my life just could be / Now that I know the feeling of living life without you, I have to say I wish I‘d never met you anyway / I‘m falling down!
Track Name: Put That In Your Pipe And Smoke It
I’m sitting in the sun, just relaxing, having fun / All my friends are here and of course my best one called beer / I’m wearing my sunglasses, watching all those beautiful asses / Summertime has come, now all my worries are gone! I’m just a lazy fool / Sitting in my pool of beer / I don’t care about anything now / Put that in your pipe and smoke it! Playing with my balls is ok, but it’s not for sports today / I’m all kind of bored, so I just take off my shorts / I’m peeing in the sea, that‘s what it‘s like to be me / I‘m punching little kids cause they kind of deserve it! I’m just a lazy fool / Sitting in my pool of beer / I don’t care about anything now / Put that in your pipe and smoke it! I’m getting another drink, my rubber boat’s gonna sink / All those empty bottles made those bitches look like models / Watch over there this chick it kind of looks like she needs it / Well I like her tits, her ass is fine / I take her home and make her mine / But next morning I wake up alone / What a pleasure that she’s already gone / So I‘m finally having time for myself / I’m jerking off, I’m pretty well / I’m just a lazy fool / Sitting in my pool of beer / I don’t care about anything now / Put that in your pipe and smoke it!
Track Name: Groundhog Day
I wish this moment would last forever / I wish that we could work it out / Although I know now it can‘t be, I still remember everything / I watch another lonely sunrise on another drunken night / Everyday the same routine and I can‘t do anything / It doesn‘t matter what I‘m trying, it‘s still you I care about / I try repressing my feelings / I know it won‘t work out / I‘m lying drunk, stare at the roofs / I‘m afraid to fall asleep / This ain‘t the place I wanna be... I see you in my dreams! I tried to drown you in booze / I tried to just replace you / But in the end it‘s all the same / No, in the end it‘s all the same / It‘s every day the same routine... It‘s every day the same routine! But in the end it‘s all the same / I still remember everything! I‘m lying drunk, stare at the roofs / I‘m afraid to fall asleep / This ain‘t the place I wanna be... I see you in my dreams!
Track Name: A Trillion
Well, I hear all these data, can’t imagine what they do stand for / It makes me scared three greedy agencies can plunge the world into the abyss by downgrading Triple-A / No, I’m no economist, but not totally dumb either and I can’t understand how can we take new debt to pay the interest of the last! Can you please tell me what this all means? Cause I can’t understand at all! Can you please show me what a trillion is? Cause I can’t imagine anyway! All that counts is the profit, the profit of the day / No thought about the impact, tomorrow is so far away / All that counts is the profit, the profit of the day / Seems like you have learned nothing from the crisis yesterday / All that counts still is the profit of the day / And as the risk becomes too high you split the bonds and sort them new / You take the indemnity while society takes the bill and everything starts again! Can you please tell me what this all means? Cause I can’t understand at all! Can you please show me what a trillion is? Cause I can’t imagine anyway! In times of distrust ratings shake the markets / Even states rated like banks, the ones in trouble graded down / So they won’t get new loan to solve their crisis / This system won’t work, no, it won’t work! And as the risk becomes too high you split the bonds and sort them new and everything starts again! Is our system finally eaten up by its own greed?
Track Name: On The Streets
The newspapers the media, controlled by government, write what they were told to / Thousands imprisoned and thousands are dead and tomorrow it starts again / Can‘t believe what I see people get shot while they‘re fighting on the streets / Houses burning to the ground just because a government has to show its power / People fighting for their right to vote, to speak, for their freedom of mind / Demonstrating peacefully on the streets ending up hunted down by law / Why does it always have to end like this? Why can‘t it just once have a happy ending? People need to stand up and fight for their rights / They‘ve been oppressed way too long! A different country here today the same shit, what can I say? Bodies covering the streets just because they claimed democracy / The first shot, the first scream, panic and rage ruling the streets / It began with demonstration but again it leads to civil war / Why does it always have to end like this? Why can‘t it just once have a happy ending? People need to stand up and fight for their rights / They‘ve been oppressed way too long! The newspapers the media, controlled by government, write what they were told to / Thousands imprisoned and thousands are dead and tomorrow it starts again / Why does it always have to end like this? Why can‘t it just once have a happy ending? We need to stand up and fight for our rights! We‘ve been oppressed way too long! I can‘t believe what I see people get shot!
Track Name: Something 'bout Me
Let me tell you something ‘bout me, otherwise you might be wrong: I really am a peaceful man, no murderer so far / I usually do not carry guns or knives, I ain’t no mean machine, but if you say just one more word you might need some new teeth / So just go, if you haven’t planned your suicide today! I just beg you to leave, cause I don’t know what will happen if you stay! So please just go! Always complained about the way I lived my life / Thought you knew better, thought you had the master plan / Never missed the chance to disrespect me in front of my friends / It’s time to break up and I’m taking a tough stance! Just go, if you haven’t planned your suicide today! I just beg you to leave, cause I don’t know what will happen if you stay! So please just go! Should have known it from the start, you‘d never find a place inside my heart / Our differences were just too obvious / Now I realize that the last two fucked up years were just wasted time!
Track Name: Korogocho
Dear United Nations take a look over your fence / Guarded inside you talk about how to safe the right of men / To secure the world peace, the humanitarian law / Thanks for all that! We highly appreciate it! Just a stone‘s throw away from your headquarters / There‘s this city built on waste, the habitat of the lowest caste / So please United Nations start to open up your eyes / Don‘t ignore the downfall of the poorest kind! The leaders keep the poorest poor, so easy to control / They need the rubbish to survive! Until it slowly kills them! You must see the clouds of smoke the residents are put up with / They rake up the garbage heaps of our civilisation / On their search for something to achieve a higher rank / Even kids expose themselves to toxic waste and deadly smoke / Just a stone‘s throw away live the forgotten yesterday / Just a stone‘s throw away from your headquarters / There‘s this city built on waste, the habitat of the lowest caste / So please United Nations start to open up your eyes / Don‘t ignore the downfall of the poorest kind! The leaders keep the poorest poor, so easy to control / They need the rubbish to survive! Until it slowly kills them! Please United Nations start to open up your eyes / Don‘t ignore the downfall of the poorest kind! Even kids expose themselves to toxic waste and deadly smoke! They need the rubbish to survive! Until it slowly kills them... Just a stone‘s throw away live the forgotten yesterday
Track Name: Drones
No more shots and no more blood, still this is war even if you deny! Their cries fall on deaf ears, no bodies remain, but still your victims they are real! There’s just crosshairs on your screen, a roof turned into smoke, it all seems like a game / But across the globe your drones are passing by and no one knows how many died in flames / Your troops are withdrawn, just some headhunters stay, their information are not scrutinized / Outside of any international law you‘re executing men without a trial / There’s no mercy for civilians in your way / There’s just crosshairs on your screen, a roof turned into smoke, it all seems like a game / But across the globe your drones are passing by and no one knows how many died in flames
Track Name: No One Pays Attention
When I look into your eyes I just can‘t realize, why are you so frustrated? Nothing to do all day, just sitting around, cause no one pays attention / You block everything that‘s new / You still strut on your past / With your close-minded view / All of your friends turned their back on you! Now no one pays attention, because you‘ve got no guts / You‘re afraid to get back up on your feet / Stop seeing the world how it‘s used to be / You‘re not alone! You‘re not alone! Stop feeling sorry for yourself! You‘re not alone! You‘re not alone! Stop feeling sorry for yourself! You‘ve displaced all your friends with your total lack of lust for life / And still you think you‘re being right with your self-destructive lifestyle / Now you‘re all alone in your room sitting around with nothing to do / Controlled by drugs and your ignorance! Now no one pays attention, because you‘ve got no guts / You‘re afraid to get back up on your feet / Stop seeing the world how it‘s used to be / You‘re not alone! You‘re not alone! Stop feeling sorry for yourself! You‘re not alone! You‘re not alone! Stop feeling sorry for yourself! Do you really need no friends? Feeling great all alone? Don‘t you cry yourself to sleep at night? Please accept the help we‘re offering to you! You‘re not alone! You‘re not alone! Cause we will be there for you! You‘re not alone! You‘re not alone! Cause we will be there for you! Let go of your past and open up your eyes! Begin to stop feeling sorry for yourself! Cause life goes on, start to be happy again! You‘re not alone! You‘re not alone! Cause we will be there for you! You‘re not alone! You‘re not alone! Cause we will be there for you! Stop feeling sorry for yourself!
Track Name: 180°
Those nine months were the happiest of my life, all the intimacy / It really felt like finally coming home / We had big plans, there was nothing that could separate us / Then the big bang came and everything had changed / I don‘t get what here just happened / You brush away our love like some annoying bug / You even act, like it doesn‘t bother you at all / I don‘t know you anymore! You‘ve changed like 180 degrees! Well I know my life has to go on, but I can‘t handle this without being in the know / All these thoughts, they really drive me mad / What has changed? What has changed? Why did you have to turn your back on me? You rush into a complete new life, you don‘t look back, no! You don‘t regret nothing / You even leave all of your friends afar behind / What has driven you to this? Just tell me! Well I know my life has to go on, but I can‘t handle this without being in the know / All these thoughts, they really drive me mad / What has changed? What has changed? Why did you have to turn your back on me? Why did you have to turn your back on me? Why did you have to turn your back on me? It seems like you have changed like 180 degrees! Why did you have to turn your back on me? I don‘t get the clue... Why do you suddenly act this weird? Our relationship seems like an egregious lie now / I‘m still wondering why did you turn your back on me? I don‘t know! No, I don‘t know you anymore! No, I don‘t know you anymore! It seems like you have fucking changed / You‘ve changed like 180 degrees
