Three Chords 02:20
I'm walking down this lonely avenue the rain is freezing on the ground don't know where this dark road is leading to seems like it ends up in a loop but my headphones are my shelter I surely turn the knobs up full life's like water off a duck's back to me I still wake up with a smile one two three chords that's all I need to rise again three chords can make my day one song can save my soul cars are passing by from time to time but no one would give me a ride and I forgot my coat once again don't know where to lay my head tonight

I always hated violence never started a fight but after all I found out I live a boxer's life just a mediocre talent forced to struggle constantly with my only opponents: life fate and destiny fate is a fucking sick mind that's something that you have to find out better sooner than later that's a fact but if your life has got you down just put your feet back on the ground and punch that fucker right into his face let's get ready float like a butterfly sting like a bee let's get ready to rumble but at this state of my carreer the recovery time after each knockout is getting longer but infected with alzheimer disease and dementia I forget about the pain I will never throw in the towel but enter the ring again life is a backstabbing bitch without any sportsmanship using deephits and punches below the belt and if you are on the ropes smile and don't give up hope and collect your strength for the counter attack

Absolution 02:56
if god created the world he threw it away as he saw that it was not good now we're living in god's creation bin as defective workmanship if god created man in his own image what does it tell about himself do you really wanna pray to someone to someone like us believe what you want but do it on your own and leave us alone - leave me alone I don't need to be saved by a preacher I don't need no pastor nor priest don't need no absolution your belief can be tolerated as long as it affects no one else no idea of god ever justifies war faith never justifies hate we all are one but we're all different stop trying to make us all equal all your evangelizing is just a sign of your arrogance

Sweet Lies 03:59
can't stand the news every day is just the same war hate and greed day by day by day I don't wanna hear and I don't wanna see please give me something to believe in racism is banned and gone forever sexism is banned and gone forever homophobia is banned and gone forever xenophobia is banned and gone forever don't wanna face reality tell me lies sweet sweet lies tell me that everything is alright

We Are Dead 04:49
the waves that reach the shore will surely seep away in the sand what one day was alive now sleeps in the ocean bed the cries all go unheard and any compassion disbands we keep the locusts out but the rivers now turn bloodred now the wave comes crashing in and death rides on its back with blood on our hands we fly the altruistic flag the walls we built are strong and they're surely too high to climb the doors are all locked twice and we threw away the key we live and die in here while on the outside they only die the first monkey can speak but yet we can't hear we can't see we are dead we cannot be alive got no heart no brain no soul we are dead no heart no brain no soul so obviously we are dead our brain stopped working and our heart stopped beating our eyes went blind and our soul stopped feeling our tongue's still speaking but it won't stop lying our hands stopped giving but they won't stop killing we are dead – Europe's dead

you're running round in circles round and round and round everytime I try to catch you I end up out of bounds I need to catch my breath I'm on the outside looking in you're running around in circles you rotate and twist and spin no matter how hard I try (lucky me) I can't move my shoes are stuck with glue run on your own - I can't join the race you're running round in circles round and round and round I'm on the outside looking in I'm caught out of bounds as I watch you spinning round step by step I understand there is no finish line you're trapped in a rat race run on your own - don't wanna join the race my shoes are stuck with glue but you're trying to rope me in don't wanna join the race but you're trying to rope me in leave me alone I don't want to get roped in leave me alone leave me alone run on your own - don't wanna join the race leave me alone - no I don't wanna join the race

Born To Die 01:10
you don't have no tommorrow not even a today it doesn't matter where you're born that's what I tell you all along but equal opportunity is not for you it's all for me I'm born to win, you're born to lose so hold your head and cry your life's forgone you're not to choose you were born to die I've got the cure for your disease but I better keep it just for me you live and die so far away it doesn't matter anyway
