Track Name: Generation Lost
Shit, it's getting sick
it's getting colder each day
oppression is violent, resistance is silent
we don't feel nothing. we killed it all with medicine.
the states keep exploiting the ones who are voting for them

They took all of our dreams
and left us incomplete
we’re living on our knees
while we still think we’re free !

Brick by brick
we destroy what we have built
the concerns are driving, no finish in sight
its insane, we're enslaved to systems we have made
what have we done ? we're all falling apart

We got a choice to speak
but prefer to stay silent
build up so much technology
but only use it to destroy
we don´t want to leave
but also don´t stay here

We are the ones who overdosed
and pushed it all til nothing goes
we are the ones who lived a life without deference

We are the ones who overslept
who missed the chance to take a stand
we are the ones who let all of this happen

They let us work for their wealth
take our dreams, make sure we won't
get any hope or perspective
they keep us low so they can breathe

Fat and greedy corporations taking from the poor nations
until there's nothing they own

All systems are working as planned
Track Name: Pleonexia
How does it feel
to be a part of the elite
the upper class society
to not know what poverty means ?
they lost all sense of humanity
so full of all their vanity
their ignorance will kill us all

Without fear, without shame
they don´t care about nobody else but them
until they get it all

And we say "that's how it goes"
and everyone is on his own
how we're supposed to end it all
when we're not ready to revolt ?
its up to us to take a stand
to make it all come to an end
with us it stands, with us it falls

They took our jobs, took our homes
they took everything we own with no remorse
they'll never have enough

So i ask:

When will their needs be appeased
when will their greed disappear
how long can they keep taking on and on and on
and on and on


And so they blind us with fake news,
their propaganda, hide the truth
while they keep robbing us with no regrets
they're getting all - someone please make them stop !

And so i ask:

When will their needs be appeased
when will their greed disappear
how long can they keep taking on and on and on
and on and on

Until the get it all
Track Name: Not Afraid
Watch out, we're coming for revolution
we came to protest and to make you fall
you pushed it all too far again
and this is our revenge

We're not afraid, we're not afraid
we're not afraid of all your mass oppression
you will never break our will
we will make you fall

We're the oppressed and the obsolete
but we have the right, the freedom of speech
nobody can forbid our thoughts
so we shout out loud

We're not afraid, we're not afraid
we're not afraid of all your mass oppression
you will never break our will
we’re not giving in, were not afraid,
we're not afraid of all your pressure and your strength
we don´t give up, not now
we will make you fall

What you wanna do when
all the ones you hit willl hit you back
knocking at your door, screaming out for war,
taking back all that you took from us

We are not afraid !
Track Name: Unfinished Story
This is a story about a guy who lived his life
in a permanent state of unrest and tries
he always did what he was told
although he knows what’s going on
he keeps talking on and on

Nothing changes if nothing will be done
and nothing stays when you will get it on
so his years passed by too fast
but nothing happened at last
so powerless

Another unfinished story
of a life that had never been lived
and we’re so sick and tired of going nowhere
but we don’t do anything

He always said one day he’ll fly away
like a bird that escapes from his cage
only waiting for a chance
a better time, a better day
so far away

Another unfinished story
of a life that had never been lived
and we’re so sick and tired of going nowhere
but we don’t do anything

Waiting for his life to start

So here is your chance to get things right
let’s get up this time, let’s get back your life
and we will go together on this road
you’re not on your own, you are not alone
Track Name: Set The Course
Everything’s changing again
And i can feel it everywhere
Whatever we do, we just keep turning away
From our own lives
And we will notice our freedom, when it´s completely gone

Your wisdom - is broken now
And you won´t get it back again
Hopelessly broken you won´t change a thing
So it´s time to pick you up again

Everything’s changing again
And I can feel it every day
No matter what I do all my friends will divide
But it´s all their lives
And they will notice their freedom, when it´s completely gone

They’re broken - but they don´t know
They can´t see anything at all
Hope is all gone in their empty lives
And it can never be returned

This - This
Is your life - Life
And there´s no one who will live it for you so just take your time
Take - Take
Take your way
And just live your life with no regrets

Faith - you can get it back again when you just want
To change your life and all around - it´s not so hard
Just try to stop to think like you´re a fucking slave
Cause it´s your life

This - This
Is your life - Life
And there´s no one who will live it for you so just take your time
Take - Take
Take your way
And just live your life with no regrets
Track Name: Off We Go!
Hey there hows it going ? you don't look too great
don't you wanna sit down and just talk about it all ?
so you say life's unfair, and nothing's how it should
all you do is going wrong, you can't stand it no more

You say that you have failed, no good things come your way
let's work something out. tomorrow is another day.
I help you to get up, to get back on your feet
together we will succeed

Wohohohoo wohohooo – it’s not always they way it should be
Wohohohoo wohohooo - but be sure i'll support all your dreams

Another shitty day, another wasted time
misunderstood and dropped you go along trying to smile
don't let em bring you down, no need to give up now
together we will make it, you and me, let's get it on

I'll stand by your side, no matter what time
all problems can be fixed we just need to start
it's all in our hands, it's our choice we make
the future is unwritten

Wohohohoo wohohooo – it‘s not always they way it should be
Wohohohoo wohohooo - but be sure i'll support all your dreams

Take your chance, maybe it’s the only one you have
live your dream until you can, until they wake you up !

Wohohohoo wohohooo – it’s not always they way it should be
Wohohohoo wohohooo - but be sure i'll support all your dreams

It’s up to you , it’s up to you how this story ends
Track Name: Too Old To Die Young
Grown up but still we're adolescents
the rebel in us just don't want to rest
discontent with this world
you always told us how to dress and speak
what we should do and what we don't need
pretty clear now you didn't succeed

And we're still alive and well
although you never thought we will
be still an eyesore to your ordinary world

The warnings you have told
none of them did happen so
we're gonna stay the way you don't want us to be

So many years and we're still against
religion, fascism, intolerance
enemies of narrow minds
you tried to make us look like the bad guys
to infiltrate us and to break our minds
but you can´t kill a rebels heart with that

And we're still alive and well
although you never thought we will
be still an eyesore to your ordinary world

The warnings you have told
none of them did happen so
we're gonna stay the way you don't want us to be
Track Name: In Holy Wars
Tough days in troubled times
the different points of views collide
fighting for nothing worth at all

Evil minds with fictive friends
spreading intolerance
to keep us blind, to keep us low

What is right? what is wrong? guess nobody knows
all we've lost, all we've payed for nothing at all
so much hate, so much pain, so much wasted energy
it’s all wasted, all wasted - in the name of creed

Each god seems to be right
so in their names we always fight
for love & peace with rage and war

Religions keep dividing us
letting us all fall apart
teach prejudice & ignorance

What is right? what is wrong? guess nobody knows
all we've lost, all we've payed for nothing at all
so much hate, so much pain, so much wasted energy
it’s all wasted, all wasted - in the name of creed

In holy wars

What is right? what is wrong? how far will we go?
all we've lost, all we've payed for nothing at all
so much hate, so much pain, so much wasted energy
it’s all wasted, fucking wasted - in the name of creed
Track Name: Fading Away
When everything's grey and surrounds you
When everything's not how it used to be
And so hopelessly
You feel so sick and so tired
You feel so weak and so blind
And no hope inside

It´s like you´re slowly fading away

You´re fading away
You´re losing the sunshine in your eyes
You´re fading away
Until there´s nothing left inside
You´re fading away
And you will slowly lose your way

So now you´re a part of society
So now you believe every single word
That they have told
You feel so sick in your mind
You feel so sick about your life
You don´t feel alive

This time you´re slowly fading away

You´re fading away
You´re losing the sunshine in your eyes
You´re fading away
Until there´s nothing left inside
You´re fading away
And you will slowly lose your way

Slowly fade away

When all is said and done
When there is not a single word
You´re so helpless, you´re so desperate, you´re so down
You took the other way
And all you get is scorn and hate
It´s like everything´s against you when you´re down

You´re so down
You slowly fade away someday
You slowly fade away someday
And you won´t come back someday
someday, someday

You´re fading away
You´re losing the sunshine in your eyes
You´re fading away
Until there´s nothing left inside
You´re fading away
And you will slowly lose your way
Track Name: Waiting For The End
Another day, another morning (in this world)
feel so sick, feel so weak from all its tragedies
no good news are in sight again
looks like everything will fall to pieces soon these days

And everyday our self esteem
will be dragged down a little more
until theres nothing left of it
until they broke us all

We lost our hope, lost our confidence,
in any positive solution of our problems
nobody sees, nobody hears nothing
we all gave up, we’re just waiting for the end to come

And everything is left undone
nobody cares about no one
until there's nothing left at all

Waiting for the end, everything seems dead
everyone is giving up these days
we're the modern slaves right here in our place
sitting there and waiting for the end
waiting for the end

But here in our comfort zone
between all these shopping malls
dying slowly but warm and safe
all shines and looks unreal, makes us forget our fears
but no one wants to pay the bill

Waiting for the end, everyone is giving up these days
we're the modern slaves right here in our place
sitting there and waiting for the end

Until this world collapse
Track Name: Take Your Time
So these are our last useful days
this may be our last common place
there is not much left
when we watch the past
everyone's working all day
everyone's on his own way
and we feel all right with this
almost forgot how to live

How long will you wait til you start to live

So take your time there is not much left
take back your life before it’s too late
and take your mind, and take your time, and take your life back again !

Maybe this moment is our last
maybe this smile is your best
so let's take a rest
and forget all stress
maybe this feeling today
won’t return on any day
so don’t let it be
a waste of what you feel

How long will you wait til you start to live

so take your time there is not much left
take back your life before it’s too late
and take your mind, and take your time, and take your life back again !

So when you just think it out loud
what is your life all about
is there any sense
in working all day
when you just listen to your heart
until it's not stopped
don't you thing that it could
use some more of you

How long will you wait til you start to live

So take your time there is not much left
take back your life before it’s too late
and take your mind, and take your time, and take your life back again !
