Track Name: Fluffer
Fluffer

Words that cling like whiffs of shit
Untold truths rearranged to fit
Never hunt what you can’t kill
Feed the rats then break them to your will
It’s so fucked up, you wash your hands, they bathe in blood
No one cares or gives a shit
Their fates are already decided
Creditors of sustained demise
You’ll reap the tremor of their tormented lives
it’s so fucked up, you wash your hands, they bathe in blood
kneel and accept what’s coming to you
Track Name: Short Songs/Exit Wound
Short songs rock my world


Exit wound

There’s a time for talking and there are times when it’s no use
On the road to nowhere figure out which way to choose
Once I felt devotion, I don’t feel it anymore
I’m more disillusioned than I ever was before
Take a look around/at me, words cannot disguise, from where I stand I stand alone
It’s fading right before me, where has the ambition gone?
If the storm is over what’s the point of carrying on?
Something in me died and it comes with such a loss
The true paradise is always the one that you have lost
Take a look around/at me, words cannot disguise, from where I stand I stand alone
Track Name: Run With The Hunted
Run With The Hunted

force-fed, it is never enough, I have only resentment left
for your will to oblige, your unchallenged surrender
Is this all there is to life? Run with the hunted
Is this all we’re living for? The daily sedation
it’s the art of dying in a world that’s dead - the art of dying slow
a lifetime spent on your knees, you just wait it out
instead of justifying your pointless existence
Is this all there is to life? Run with the hunted
Is this all we’re living for? The daily sedation
it’s the art of dying in a world that’s dead - the art of dying
Make it count
Track Name: Days Of Rage
Days of rage

There was no one else when you crossed the line to hell
just you behind a wall of contempt
Behold the legacy, it’s a fucking tragedy
the voices that you oppress won’t fade away
Spring in Syria, days of rage
Protesters pay in blood for the war they waged
No turning back for you, these are the last days
Spring in Syria, a regime falls
It’s taking down with it ten thousand lives
No turning back for you, these are the last days of rage
Just how fucking long until justice will be served?
Track Name: No One There
No one there

One life free of god, free of guilt, free of failure
One choice, no sign of Christ, a nil report
Do I have to spell it out? There is no one fucking there
They nailed into your head that self-determination is devil’s work
Live the life you want to live, no one fucking watches you
Live the life you want to live, don’t fool yourself, there’s no one there
A dissenting opinion in a life littered with frustration
Let’s try to break the chains just to see if we can
Those chains were always there, a guarantee that you comply
That’s the thing they don’t tell you, we live under their thumb
Resist the mad men’s dream of unrestrained authority
Live the life you want to live, no one fucking answers you
Live the life you want to live, don’t be afraid, there’s no one there
Live the life you want to live, emancipate, stay in control
Track Name: Nichts Ist Vergessen
Nichts Ist Vergessen

Einigkeit, Recht und Freiheit für den, der sie verdient
Abschied fällt nur bei Freunden schwer – deshalb lauf
Und ich trag das mit mir rum, nichts ist vergessen
Wie eine Wunde die nie heilt, die Geschichte endet hier
Und die Wände kommen näher, nehmen Platz wo keiner ist
Ich bin mir nicht mehr sicher, ob es jemals anders war
Dieser Abriss der Gesellschaft vollzieht sich noch einmal
Knappe 20 Jahre später, so als hätte ich die Wahl
Nichts ist vergessen
Nicht, dass du glaubst, die Geschichte endet hier...
Track Name: Welcome To Your Homicide
Welcome to your homicide

Shouldn’t we defend what‘s left of our liberty?
Forever unpacified - welcome to your homicide
Shouldn’t we eliminate the possibility of the next trigger happy cop losing the plot?
Forever unpacified - welcome to your homicide
We’re standing on opposing sides, welcome to your homicide
Leave nothing behind but a display of revolt,
a showcase of broken hands, a sickening reminder of the past
“Serve and protect” an empty pledge of disrespect,
a bullet in your head for your own protection,
you get what you give, the great dividing line
We don’t negotiate with terrorists
