I am trying to sit up straight and awake I am alone with my mistake I am dying to find a way, an escape to make some sense in this mass confusion Is your education helpful? It seems to dumb us down Disobedience is more equal And seems to work just fine I am trying to sit up straight and take control of the chaos around me I feel the foundation bend and then shake and break Not enough arms to hold it Is your education helpful? It seems to dumb us down Disobedience is more equal And seems to work just fine I wanna get straight but I cannot relate I wanna get paid but I cannot relate I wanna get safe but I cannot relate I wanna get laid but I cannot relate I wanna get straight but I cannot relate

Sit down on the chair And open up yourself Let it all spill out I won’t take offence Don’t you hide the truth Hit me with your dirt again Cause I’m ready To dodge bullets to stay awake Cyber tourists pull the breaks How hurtful it is? I don’t care about that at all Please lead me to the dark It makes my pain disappear It makes me feel good So hit me with your dirt again Cause I’m ready To dodge bullets to stay awake Cyber tourists pull the breaks Hit me with your dirt again Thousand ballots with your name Cyber tourists you’re to blame Hit me with your dirt again

I need to get out Out of the apartment There is no light The floor is full of garbage The air gets thin (There's) Someone in the hallway I cannot shout, spitting out dust on the floorboards Can't make it out, someone throw a rock through the window I need to get out Is it locked from the outside The taps are dry, and I've never been this thirsty The walls cave in I'm sweating through the jacket I cannot breathe, something creeping up on me from behind Can't make it out, someone throw a rock through the window Can't make it out, I'm in the apartment trying to survive I need to get out Out of the apartment

My mind is blank it's hard to think I need to set myself into instant sleep To wake up enriched, enriched, enriched I need to wake up rich And say bye, bye, bye, bye You hollow pricks Cause I’m d.i.y and I’m not yours to fix I got my own plans, thoughts, ideas on how To make us all be real and forever stay true To keep on wasting time on what we do Same dreams, same love as always We will prove we're not like you I don’t give a shit about what’s a fact And I know I’m way too old to act like that But I still refuse, refuse, refuse, I refuse And I won't (try to) pretend To be at ease with your complaints Cause I’m d.i.y and I’m not yours to fix I got my own plans, thoughts, ideas on how To make us all be real and forever stay true To keep on wasting time on what we do. Same dreams, same love as always We will prove we're not like you

Safe 03:28
Someday you will be safe I'll be here waiting for love Take some time off worrying 'bout your haltered career and all of that BS I couldn't care less about your endless growing fortune Someday you will be safe, I'm still here waiting to take you somewhere else Out of your misery, you see I'll be your BFF If you let go of the drugs and the money chasing I couldn't care less about your fame as long as we are safe Someday you will be safe I'll be here waiting for love

Paris 04:00
I was in Paris Before the shots were fired I can't imagine how it feels To be caught in the chaos To fear for your life The primal instinct to survive To keep us alive Waiting for disaster, stacking up supplies Don't need guns to protect what is mine, Ready me for battle, I’ll fight for my ideas Arm me with words, they can't read, they cannot see I was in Oslo When the killer was caught, and detained The state of shock is hard to grasp But I was amazed, how people grew Got together and with peace, got back up for their beliefs So we can believe Waiting for disaster, stacking up supplies Don't need guns to protect what is mine, Ready me for battle, I’ll fight for my ideas Arm me with words, they can't read, they cannot see I wanna live, I wanna breathe Give everyone all that they need Put down the knife, Open the door, Less for the rich, more for the poor. Waiting for disaster, stacking up supplies Don't need guns to protect what is mine, Ready me for battle, I’ll fight for my ideas Arm me with words, they can't read, they cannot see

Sweat 03:38
Awkward sounds from my inner self The taste of puke and an instant smell Lack of words as I’m drenched in sweat My body shakes I can't relax My mistakes keeps on haunting my dreams It brings me back to the noise I so desperately try to avoid I want to give my heart and my mind A brand new start now it’s time to leave the old behind To be a part of something new Will give me hope to get me through And to leave this shit behind Cannot sleep it feels too fake I’m in too deep got to get away In search for better ways Need something else something new My mistakes keeps on haunting my dreams It brings me back to the noise I so desperately try to avoid I want to give my heart and my mind A brand new start now it’s time to leave the old behind To be a part of something new will give me hope to get me through And to leave this shit behind I won’t go back to the dark side of the tracks There’s too much pain and I need light to get strength There’s too much pain

Curtains 03:06
One mirror, thousand reflections Thousand faces all aligned Two sinners, zero posessions Goodbye mankind Three winners, million rejections How can you still act surprised? The highest bidder has no discretion Goodbye mankind Frozen to the core Jumping up and down If we could cease to exist Let’s crash through the floor The only thing I would ever miss is you Four beginners, no perfection Let them have the consolation prize Reconsider this list of questions Goodbye mankind Eyes blind Curtains All your words Objections Now Frozen to the core Jumping up and down If we could cease to exist Let’s crash through the floor The only thing I would ever miss is you

Spite 03:10
Into oblivion Building walls is not a legacy Stuck inside a web Spun of unkept promises You could never Even to save your own life Open your eyes You won't open your eyes Keep the old f..k on a leash and put to rest All bad habits that he has to entertain You could never Even to save your own life Open your eyes You can't open your eyes They won't open Almost as out of spite Won't open your eyes Rotten apples Clinging on for another term Empty stages Empty seats to entertain You could never Even to save your own life Open your eyes You won't open your eyes They won't open Almost as out of spite, Won't open your eyes

I´m breathing but still receiving I´ve done it one hundred times I´m sleeping but still believing I´ve done it one hundred times I´m still flying but still defying Our band could be your life In the still of it all, chasing time Never ending, always around In the still of it all, chasing time Never ending, always around I´m breathing but still receiving I´ve done it one hundred times I´m sleeping but still believing I´ve done it one hundred times I´m still flying but still defying I´ve done it one hundred times I´m still flying but still defying Our band could be your life In the still of it all, chasing time Never ending, always around In the still of it all, chasing time Never ending, always around One more time once more around This time it's not enough, not enough The still of it all chasing time never-ending Always around

about

You may call it a comeback. In these times of trouble we are trying to sneak back into entertainment. It often takes a couple of days, spread out across many years for us to write a record. During such a long period you start to question the necessity of yet another rock album. You challenge the pros and cons, planning how to con the pros. And then you settle with the conclusion that everything is the same as it ever was.

Therefore we want to use this music to once more remind you of all the misfortune, greed and stress surrounding us. But at the same time celebrate the humanity, the friendliness and the equality that somehow coexists. That continues to grow with every helping hand and every unselfish deed.
