Also: jetzt mitlesen, beim nächsten Gig mitgrölen :-)

  • Before I die
    • Verse
      Lost somewhere between today and tomorrow.
      Enslaved by the road that has been laid out before you.
      Taking part in a rat race you so greatly detest, 
      but don't worry these are just the side effects.

      Chorus

      Before I die - I wanna taste this life.
      Before I die - don't wanna waste my time.
      Break the shackles and the chains before my days are over.
      Don't wanna be a victim of these side effects.

      Interlude

      Stress, fucking competition, burn-out, overstimulation.
      Puppets hanging by the strings of our obligations.

      Verse

      Now you're lying on your deadbed with tears in your eyes,
      regret in your heart and you're wondering why
      you tried to make the world spin faster, chasing monetary dreams
      implanted in your head by this society.

      Interlude

      Pressure, deadlines, sheer exhaustion, break-down, overmedication.
      Puppets hanging by the strings of our obligations.

  • Authority
    • Verse

      Turn down the volume
      It's way too loud
      cut your hair
      no piercings allowed
      you look like a tramp
      get new clothes
      theese punks are bad company
      you won't be one of those

      Chorus

      Keep yelling at me
      I don't care what you say
      'cause I won't listen anyway
      You're a fucking asshole, you mean nothing to me
      Fuck you and your authority

      Verse

      Ripping movies is illegal
      you are going to jail
      you're no better than a murderer
      I suggest you obey
      your opinion is unwanted
      so you shut the fuck up
      we can arrest you on a whim
      enough is enough

  • Procrastination
    • Verse

      I woke up half past four
      another day went down the drain
      26 unanswered calls
      too many things I can't explain

      Only dunnig letters in my mail
      another deadline I exceed
      I feel hungover and slightly depressed
      I can't stand this losing streak

      Pre-Chrous

      Fuck this world I'm livin' in
      today I'll change my life
      I'll pay all those invoices
      This is the chance to set things right
      I can't stand this any more
      I will straighten up this mess
      I put things on the shelf for too long
      It's all my fault, yeah, I do confess

      Chorus

      I would give everything
      today could be the day
      If only I could get off my ass
      So many things to do
      I fucked up way too much
      I'm longing for tomorrow
      This life drives me nuts

      Verse

      tomorrow will be another day
      today I'll take a break
      yeah, tomorrow will still be time enough
      I still got some time to waste
      there's no time like the present
      procrastination is the thief of time
      get up get up
      it's killing me
      let's get it done and we'll be fine

  • Sternburg Export
    • Verse

      Mit 15 fing es an,
      die Liebe zwischen Bier und Mann.
      Dieser Song ist nur für dich,
      weil du mir so wichtig bist.
      Ich brauch dich ein Leben lang,
      weil ich nicht mehr ohne dich kann.
      Du hilfst mir durch jedes Tief,
      darum hab ich mich in dich verliebt.

      Chorus

      Bei Kaiser's um die Ecke, 
      da gab's ne heiße  Schnecke,
      Ihr Name war Sternburg Export!
      Bei Kaiser's um die Ecke,
      ja da gab's ne  heiße Schnecke,
      die kauf' ich mir sofort!
      Bei Kaiser's um die Ecke, 
      da gab's ne heiße  Schnecke.
      Ihr Name war Sternburg Export!
      Bei Kaiser's um die Ecke,
      ja da gab's ne  heiße Schnecke.
      Die kauf' ich mir sofort!

      Verse

      Mit 16 ist es dann, weitergegang'n,
      ich hab nur noch am Sternburg gehang 'n.
      Mit 17 musste dann der Kasten her,
      denn der Sixer reichte bei weitem nicht mehr.
      Natürlich trink ich auch andern  Alkohol, 
      doch nur mit Sternburg fühl ich mich wohl.
      Sommer - Sonne - Strand, Sternburg in der Hand,
      Sternburg im Blut,  nur dann geht's mir gut!

  • 86400 seconds
    • Intro

      86400 seconds - the last grain of sand hits the ground
      86400 seconds since our time has run out.

      Chorus

      86400 seconds - I've counted every single one.
      Broken and battered, open and raw, sleepless nights, another day gone.

      Verse

      A dead flower on my window sill, feels like time is standing still
      since your words ripped me apart.
      Now this room is filled with emptiness, a stench of guilt, an open wound across my chest.
      Stuck in this jaded apathy. This haunting silence screams at me.

      Verse

      For every time you had to bite your lip a taste of blood in your mouth each time we kissed,
      'til we could no longer deny it.
      Once your tears told me I wasn't alone, now they're telling me, I'm not the one
      and that I'm just wasting my time. Am I just wasting my time?

      Bridge

      The stars stopped shining in space. Put back a smile on my face.
      Stuck in these neverending days, stuck in these neverending days,
      stuck in these neverending, stuck in these neverending

      Outro

      86400 seconds - the last grain of sand hits the ground.
      86400 pieces - now I'm the odd man out
      yeah I'm the odd man...

  • Sail away
    • Verse

      I have no time
      I got work to do
      But next time I'll make it up to you
      OK?
      That's what I used to say
      I's buisness before pleasure
      And it's always been
      I'll just meet this deadline
      Then I start to live
      Some day
      That's what I used to say

      Chorus

      Let's sail away from all our trouble
      Let's pack our bags and leave right now
      Nobody will ever find us
      We'll spend our days just on our own
      Let's sail away
      Let's sail away

      Verse

      Do we work for living or just live to work?
      Do we live or dreams or just dream of living?
      I don't know
      No - I don't know
      I'll take charge of my life
      I'm really going to
      I'll live come what may
      I'll make those dreams come true
      But not now
      No, not now

  • Badass Guy
    • Verse

      Come on baby, show me what you've got
      'Cause baby, baby, I'm your best shot
      I have muscles, I am smart
      And I drive a very fast car
      I've got the devil sittin' on my shoulder
      Looking good like Elvis, not gettin' older
      Wherever I go I take the lead
      Oh baby, baby, I am what you need

      Chorus

      Say hello, I'm back again
      Did you miss me? Don't be shy!
      I'm a pretty badass guy
      I don't know how long I stay
      I have to move from time to time
      You can't stop a badass guy

      Verse

      I open bottles with my teeth
      Strong like Schwarzenegger
      Don't mess with me
      And baby, it's true - I have no fears
      And no - I never shed a tear
      I'm no Jekyl, I am Mr. Hyde
      If you wanna have fun, come join the ride
      I am popular, baby, I'm a star
      I've got more Facebook fans than Rihanna

  • Falling Down
    • Verse

      My wounded soul runs over my face
      like melted silver
      I try to forget, try to forgive
      But my heart still resists
      captured by my pain
      jealousy leaves an ugly stain

      Chorus

      I'm running through these streets
      like a fallen guardian
      My failures drag me to the ground
      Hope for a last chance to come clean
      I won't give in, I won't back down - NO!

      Verse

      Stalking nightmares
      like assasins without sound
      Tryin' to catch me, tryin' to hunt me down
      They are just stormclouds in my head
      Made out of anguish and regrets

  • I got drunk (and you got angry with me)
    • Verse 1

      I got drunk, you got angry with me
      But I hope you'll have sex with me
      Let's jump to haven where we should be
      But I'm fucked, 'cause you're angry with me

      Verse 2

      Now I tell you how beautiful you are
      But you just shake your head and leave me
      Now I'm thinking about the stars and University
      And I remember why I got drunk, 'cause you're angry with me

      Verse 3

      Now I try to apologize with this simple melody
      Tryin' to impress you with these lines
      But I'm no poet, or no Shakespeare
      But I am drunk, so don't be angry with me

  • Rumors and facts
    • Verse

      put your hands where I can see them
      you're arrested in the name of the people
      accused for rape or murder
      they are not sure, yet
      but I know you're guilty
      I read something on the internet

      Chorus

      someone said something
      and someone else believed it
      rumors become facts so fast
      to fast to defeat them
      headlines ruin lifes each day
      'cause we take them for granted
      the jerks say if they write about it
      there must be something to it

      Verse

      the Court issues the following order
      we acquit the accused for want of evidence
      you are acquitted
      but your life's fucked up anyway
      you'll remain as the suspect
      till the end of your days

  • Deathwater Horizon
    • Verse

      Deeper and deeper you drill
      while everything around is smothered by
      the black blanked above.
      Deathwater up to the horizon.
      The next catastrophe is...

      Interlude

      ... arising.(You don't care.) And you don't care. (You don't care.)
      Arising.(You don't care.) No you don't care. (You don't care.)

      Verse

      You're ready to take more risks
      while she can't sleep.
      The smell of factories
      makes her choke and gives her a headache.
      How much more can we...

      Interlude

      ...take? (You don't care.) And you don't care. (You don't care.)

      Chorus

      You pretend to listen but in fact you just don't care.
      Preventive imprisonments, or so I've heard.
      Peaceful organisations are declared terroristic.
      What will we become if we stamp down every critic.

      Verse

      Seventy-Nine Incidents, a civil war.
      But you are safe and sound on your new yacht.
      Economic growth is more important,
      than those petty lives,
      wasted and...

      Interlude

      ...shortenend. (You don't care.) And you don't care. (You don't care.)

  • Reality is just one step behind
    • Verse

      Turn off the lights and let's pretend,
      just here in this moment where nothing really matters.
      With our reality blackened
      or are we just waiting for it all to be shattered?
      With a destination unknown
      stumbling forward onto a road yet to be discovered.
      That doesn't stop us from slowing down
      and every step taken forward is one we can't take back.

      Chorus

      Let's run away from reality,
      before it might just catch up.
      And if it gets us, we'll crash down to earth,
      but for the moment this is all that I've got.

      Verse

      Is this a cruel game we're playing?
      A game in which we know, we're not supposed to win.
      Do we know how much is at stake?
      We might lose our heads as our worlds have begun to spin.
      And maybe even more as we are
      pushing our luck and keep on raising the bets
      but we keep playing along,
      'cause it's better than walking away empty-handed.

      Bridge

      Trembling hands and avoiding our eyes.
      You smile at me and I think, I'll be alright,
      but the ring on your finger tells me otherwise,
      it tells me otherwise...

      Chorus

      Let's run away from reality,
      where we going doesn't matter.
      And I promise to swallow my pain,
      if you promise to never say never.

  • Surveillance
    • Verse

      I know your name
      I know your face
      I know all your secets
      Yeah, I know you well

      Pre-Chorus

      Everybody is suspicious
      It's for your security
      We're arresting every dissident
      in order to be free

      Chorus

      I'm watching you
      every second of your life
      You're under control
      there is no place to hide

      Verse

      You think you can trust me
      You think I'm your friend
      don't be so stupid
      you know about the end

      Bridge

      Knock, knock on your door
      I know that you're here
      don't pretend you're innocent
      don't pretend your fear
      If you don't obey the rules
      you have to disappear
      torture is justice
      supression is fair

  • Media Mutant
    • VERSE

      Surrounded by light, yet we stand in the dark.
      Media blindfolds our eyes.
      Makes us believe we see reality.
      With the truth so far away.
      Spiced up with colourful advertisement. Food to lose weight.
      Another pill to make us happy.
      Walking around like zombies. Overstimulated.
      An army, an army of fools on the ready!

      CHORUS

      Cheap propaganda
      Headlines that sell on title pages
      Media panic
      Power and manipulation
      Distorted facts
      Beginning of the new dark ages
      Truth and honesty
      All we ask for is information!

      VERSE

      Lies fly around like loose cannonballs,
      not killing but quieting.
      Now you've given up your shield of doubt,
      so many easy targets.
      Instrumentalised appearences, words that are empty
      and facts so unimportant.
      By now we've switched off our heads completely.
      Here comes, here comes the new media mutant!

  • Verano (It's summer and I don't give a fuck)
    • Verse

      Step through the door and leave winter behind.
      The grass under my feet fills me with life
      and fresh summer air fills my lungs.
      With spirits high I close my eyes and start laughing at the sky,
      feels like even death can be defied!
      And I start singin this song:

      Chorus

      It's summer and I don't give a fuck,
      don't care about the things that always suck,
      feels like the world's at peace and so am I!
      Let's have a laugh and leave it all behind,
      loosen up, mate, it's time to unwind!
      'Cause it's summer and I don't give a fuck!

      Verse

      Let's build a fire and party all night.
      Flames burn with excitement and so do I.
      We don't care about tomorrow.
      Get pissed on cheap beer and sweet wine, feeling more than just alright.
      Guitar tunes and laughter fill the night,
      and we sing on top of our lungs:

      Chorus

      It's summer and we don't give a fuck,
      don't care about the things that always suck,
      feels like the world's at peace and so are we!
      Let's have a laugh and leave it all behind,
      loosen up, mate, it's time to unwind!
      'Cause it's summer and we don't give a fuck!

  • Solidarity:failed!
    • Verse
      Under the same stars we stand in silence. Are we awaiting another riot? 
      One we've known, but long forgotten.
      Bloody hands you try to wash in innocence. A call for reminiscence.
      Chanting the song of the dead. Forfeited the lives they should have led.

      Chorus
      And now we're left with no alternatives,
      no way to go, no right or left.
      We're going down - down in flames.
      And the distances between us get us to a new start.
      Marching as one but falling apart.

      Verse
      As we walk we sing our song of sorrow. 'Bout the misled lives, stolen ones and borrowed.
      Yet still we're at each other's throats.
      Hatred meets us as we stare at each other. Reason's what they want to smother.
      Deflecting the lies from their lips. Preserving power in their tight grip.

      Bridge 
      We stand alone, we fight alone, and no one really cares.
      We stand alone, we fight alone, just people in the mass left out there.

  • Lullaby for the masses
    • Verse

      Close your eyes child, there's nothing to see.
      No need to worry 'bout the things you don't understand.
      Built up your wall of ignorance, so safe, so sound.
      Don't work yourself up, don't work yourself up, yeah.
      We take good, we take good, we take good care of you.

      Chorus

      Ignorance is bliss, a lullaby for the masses.
      Sweet tunes to carry away all of your doubts.
      Pieces of truth just hit stoney ground.
      And you stay good while put in chains. But you should
      open your eyes, speak out your mind, yeah you should
      open your eyes, speak out your mind!

      Verse

      Each day you wake up with an empty head.
      No time to think, but no use to think anyway.
      You can't recall what information they gave you
      and you don't care, no, you don't care.
      Don't work yourself up, don't work yourself up, yeah, 'cause
      They take good, they take good, they take good care of you.

  • In the name of the people
    • Verse

      Waves of Lies
      wash away the sins from dirty hands
      Insert a coin
      to erase your crimes and mistakes
      Justice depends
      on the weight of your account
      social standing
      dictates the price of freedom

      Chorus

      You pretend virtue
      In the name of the people
      But you're acting like a whore selling truth
      to the highest bidder
      you're the unkown public enemy

      Verse

      one's innocent
      until gutter papers prove his gulit
      a show trial
      is worth more than human dignity
      you spit
      on the rules you've sworn to protect
      You're called righteous
      But you're nothing but a criminal

  • Smile, you're on CCTV
    • Verse

      You have nothing to fear, if you have nothing to hide.
      Just another false positive, another ruined life.
      Meant to tab the criminals but we all are suspected.
      Flesh turned into glass where every thought will be detected.

      Chorus

      Smile, you're on CCTV, 
      imaginary safety,
      the prize for our security, 
      to hell with autonomy!
      Invasion of our privacy, 
      our new transparency,
      we're all at risk allegedly,
      here's to you surveillance society!

      Verse

      One step out of line and the watchdogs will hunt you down.
      Paranoia's just a side effect, trust a word unknown.
      Slit the wrists of society with razor-sharp suspission.
      I'm left to wonder where's the end to this obsession?

  • Profit
    • Verse

      How much do you get for the last fallen tree?
      How does it feel to drown in your own oil?
      Lungs filled with smoke, unable to breathe.
      Was it worth it?

      Pre-Chorus

      Have you noticed the blood on your hands?
      Are you haunted by the doomed corpses?
      Do you see the sad eyes, or the people that died,
      or the earths' falling apart?

      Chorus

      You line your own pockets. Don't care about others.
      The world can crash and burn.
      It's all about money, it's all about profit.
      And that's your only concern.

      Verse

      When green's turning grey and blue becomes black,
      When blood's running dry and ash becomes sand.
      sold your lifeboat but now you're shipwrecked.
      Was it worth it?

  • Crossing Borders
    • Verse

      Wouldn't you leave, if you had nothing to lose?
      Wouldn't you move, if you had the option to choose?
      We all want to live!
      We all want to live!

      Pre-Chorus

      Saving lives becomes a crime
      being human doesn't make you a person
      human rights are not applied
      another refugee dies tonight

      Chorus

      Break down the borders in your mind.
      Behind these walls we're all the same.
      or are we just too blind,
      ignorant or insane?

      Verse

      Chance threw us into the world why cant we choose?
      There are no roots holding us. Who likes to lose?
      We want to survive!
      We want to survive!

  • Homesick
    • Verse

      ink stains on my fingers
      black holes in my head
      please just let me linger
      in the thoughts I've just had
      why do all good things come to end?
      it feels like time is running through our hands

      Chorus

      and the world keeps on spinning
      and I'm standing still
      legs of stone but I keep on walking
      being on a treadmill
      feeling homesick all the time but my home is not a place
      holding on to a dozens of small things
      'til I finally see your face

      Verse

      nostalgic as I am
      living in the past
      feeling high and feeling low
      nothing seems to last
      eyes wide open but I'm blind
      or could it just be my twisted mind?

  • Story of a nerd
    • Verse

      There were troubled times
      When anger hit my brain
      Rage took control of all my actions
      And to commit a crime
      Is not a big step when you get teased
      Dozens of times

      Pre-Chorus

      Now everything is adding up
      I can't do anything
      I'm losing control

      Verse 

      I had it all before
      People love it to ignore
      When you're one step away from madness
      When once again you hit the floor
      Rage opens up another door
      And you will go to far

      Pre-Chorus

      Now everything is adding up
      I can't do anything
      I'm losing control
