Track Name: Treasures Of The World
love - the strongest element in life
harbinger of hope, moulder of destiny
burning passion cures the worst despair
opens minds and fills lungs with air

we can have all treasures of the world
but we're poor and desolate - if love passes us by

true love is irresponsible, rebellious
an act of revolution in a futile world
without the burning fire of desire
we can't decide what's right or wrong

we can have all treasures of the world
but we're poor and desolate - if love passes us by

take care of eachother, so you can be dangerous together
Track Name: Loss
hello death, seems like we meet again
once again you took away my dearest friend
I'm feeling alone, trying to cope with his death
the mere thought of him still makes me hold my breath

you jacked me and caused me guilt
destroyed everything we built
took away what meant the world to me
and all I have are fucking memories

people say "time will heal"
but days turn to weeks
and months turn to years
this pain runs deep
i can't fucking forget
this wound will bleed always and evermore

it's fall and leaves are falling from the trees
your life passes right in front of me
my eyes are burning
but i don't like to dry my tears
you've walked away
and all I have are memories
Track Name: Reality Slap
a bottle of beer and a roach in your mouth
breathing in deep - love your lungs getting numb
put a pill on your tongue – sniff some coke
unconscious and wasted - choking on the smoke
hating yourself, you're living life on the fast lane
no sane mind, instead you're trying to kill pain
assumed habits of a violent culture keep you down
cause sorrows that will make you drown

I have the guts to say no!
I am not a part of it anymore - count me out!

poluting your mind to escape reality
a deal with the devil - shaking the reapers hand
selling your soul to outstrip the realness
escaping liability - blinkers can't face the facts

escapism - a wrecking ball that rebounds
shape of indifference - diggin your own fucking grave
we all suffer reality
no matter - how hard you try to numb your brain
Track Name: Loving Embrace
there was a time we made 5 fingers to a fist
friends who tried to change dark days for the better
we used to spend nights of war on the summer streets
allies who made a stab to break away from the fetter

time flies! you're all grown up - I'm vehement
still can't believe you didn't mean to fight those fights
you changed - as if all was youth rebellion
I'll stay a kid - even if I walk alone through these nights

I'm a dagger
I'm poison
I'm variance
I'm a loving embrace -

for those who fight back and stand against
for those who stray from the path
for those who feel the fire
and carry the new world in their hearts

back to back -
reached hands, clenched fists
we stick together -
revolt, rebel, resist!
Track Name: Tables Will Turn
so proud of your country - so proud of your race
we have nothing in common and we'll never relate
your head's full of prejudice and national pride
no tolerance for you and your narrow mind
the ignorance you follow is a disease
got a penchant for scapegoating minorities
you're a blind spot in the state's watchful eyes
fight the fascist threat - we're your demise

people facing daily threats
and living in anxiety
this is not a side issue -
racism's rooted in society

I'm not scared
I'll stand up - won't keep my mouth shut

boundaries are a product
of your imagination
a common tool for exclusion
and separation

I'm not scared
I'll stand up - won't keep my mouth shut

you played your game - now tables turned
don't play with fire if you don't wanna get burned
don't follow blindly - spot the wolf in sheep's clothing
their web of lies is decomposing

capitalist crisis, discontent rises
a breeding ground for racist ratters
they're crawling out of the woodwork
decoying with simple answers to difficult questions

I'm not scared
I'll stand up - won't keep my mouth shut

Fight the fascist threat!
Pack off! Get lost!
Track Name: Stray From The Path
go with the flow - that's what we're taught
and like blind sheep we believe what we're told
heading towards one direction
a misguided youth without connection
I choose a way off the beaten track
a herder has never been a sheep's best friend

blind leading the blind - obeying by tradition
veer away, all you need is volition

I'm not the only one -
there is more of my kind
I am a renegade
fighting to survive
I'm not the only one -
there is more of my kind
stray from the path
leave the mass behind

we're lost - we miss the forest for the trees
that's why we're pleased with living life on our knees
there's no right way in this labyrinth
stray from the path

stray from the path -- escape prescribed conformity
stray from the path - break the uniformity
stray from the path - get out of control
stray from the path - we're here, you're not alone!

stray from the path
Track Name: Crown Of Thorns
countless generations were forced to bend down
but what goes around comes back around
I'm wearing a crown, but I'm not a queen
I'm a slave of this world I was born in
I'm desperately trying to get rid off this crown
its thorns are made to put me under ground
trapped in this corset to which you think that I'm bound
you can't imagine how deep is this wound

I've been held long enough in this golden cage
powerful, rude - I will disengage

I'm wearing a crown, but I'm not a queen
I'm a slave of this world I was born in
harassed, abused - just a birth machine
a slave of this world I was born in

I'm bearing this weight for thousands of years
my sisters and me have shed oceans of tears
so who the fuck do you expect me to be?
I'm not your love, not your bitch, not your dear

I've been held long enough in this golden cage
powerful, rude - I will disengage
Track Name: Daydreaming
I've always liked the wind playing with my hair
never felt as alive as with the gasp of fresh air
I'm feeling free
and the sea is tenderly stroking

still loving life
I'm still loving life

but nothing gold can stay
all we have,we wash away
Track Name: No Silent Approval
while the blood drips off the blade the cries still resonate
estranged, cut into pieces - rediscovered on your plate
you stop at nothing for the privileg of taste
like a panel of judges you're deciding their fate

born in misery, abused - got nothing to lose
exploited for profit therefore you breed by humyn greed
this machine that turnes lives to products is called tradition
your silent approval - what an imposition!
individuals - facing perversion by superior forces
social, sentient beings degraded to resources
you stop at nothing for the privileg of taste
like a panel of judges you're deciding their fate

this is about freedom, this is about compassion,
abolish exploitation – animal liberation!
The time has come - to break this culture of death
Track Name: Captives
everytime you take a look to the sky
you'd rather be dead
than a slave made for mine
wings are made to fly but yours are confined
by a prison created by myn
to keep broken spirits alive

no one is free
until all a re free
no one is free
no one is free
until all are free

scarred for life
your wings are broken but your will is strong
we can break bones but a free mind
wants to go where it belongs

no one is free
until all a re free
no one is free
no one is free
until all are free

[to bow down to those who’ve crowned themselves
all powerful (yet never reigning)
leaves us laying upon their holy ground
strained and dying
where no one is free]
