You don't understand it but you never ask yourself What it may mean to you and why you have to fear their hell The words once written down don't need to tell the truth This is the only life you have to live it is up to you Just you - it's up to you You don't understand it but you never think twice What advantageous and what may be the price What glitters is not always gold and what's white not always good This is the only life you have to live it is up to you Life is not a lesson, life is not a test Life is deadly serious so you better make the best of it now

all your life you've been smacked down, knocked down, hit down, held down all your life your anger grew and in your dreams you smashed down, shot down, kicked down, beat down now you make your dreams come true a shot, a shout yelling in your ear but you've got nothing to fear the cold steel of the rifle in your hand makes you feel like a man

to be a big man, drive big cars and live in mansions buy a horse for your daughter and your wife on the weekends fuck sluts with hairextensions that would not be my life to be a big man with money in plentiousness that's curtly enough for your high life time is money more or less so most of time you spend in your wife you live your life the expensive way I live laid back everyday you live your life the expensive way I live my life for free so choose slut or girlfriend, champagne or beer big car or bicycle, foreign sea or lake just here mansion or flat, a golden rolex on your arm or just a lot of time

can't you see that in Germany we all can be conceited pacifists can't you see that nowadays we all can be conceited pacifists sitting on your throne it's easy to say what's right and what's wrong to tell the suffering that only the peaceful are strong sitting on your throne it's easy to say what's right and what's wrong to know it all but what if you changed for just a few days and what if you felt their anger and pain and what if you stood with your back against the wall would you still be peaceful, fucking know-it-all in our safe European home we all can be conceited pacifists can't you see that for us it's easy to be conceited pacifists sitting on your throne it's easy to say what's black and what's white to tell the suffering that only the peaceful are right sitting on your throne it's easy to say what's black and what's white to know it all don't tell me that you know what it's like

get back to where we started to the days when we were kids we gotta get back to where we started finding joy in the little things they say getting older means getting wiser I say getting older means getting annoyed we're searching for the bad things instead of finding joy when we were kids we didn't use to damn the noise when we were kids we used to shout they say getting older means getting smarter I say getting older means getting dumb as grown-up you're watching TV you're imaginative when you're young when we were kids we didn't use to watch the games when we were kids we used to play

ready for attack of total stupidness to hear our songs 'bout "getting frowns" and stinkbugs and "eight stretch" a new bass-player every year we lost stefan, p and bier- moser, dr.nick, but promilipp ist "still hear" our song titles are long and the very first song we ever wrote but never played was "not the only one" simon smashed a stage, our beat's laid down by dave and all those years popovic never had to shave hooked on off-beat, punkrock bound disdained kings without a crown unpopular since 2004 we're the punkers of pure sound hey ho let's go, don't play it too slow platz destroyed his guitar before our very first show starpunks coffee and one police operation at the same club where christoph almost was banned from first drummer basti quit after our third gig randalina's taking photos and doing our graphics saftladen, gigsforyou, then matze joined the crew "des san krokus, du oaschloch" and the answer's 42

what is right, what is wrong, where do you and I belong a yacht paid out of petty cash, or a home built out of trash what is wrong, what is right, who the fuck is on your side beg for food or squander cash, Saint Tropez or Bangladesh what's the matter with the world today why do all the poor man have to pay for untold greed and luxury of high society while you fill your stomach with caviar and champagne Africans are starving, getting insane you, just for fun, drive your Bentley Chinese ride by bicycle slow and gently with an i-phone made by Asian hands you're important, checking market trends and without food, without your phone you should take your Bentley home push your gas-guzzler home push your fucking Bentley home

down in Kinshasa you can hear the songs of Staff Benda Bilili playing very strong handicapped and sheges living on the streets Moto Moindo – can't you feel the beat the Refugee All Stars from Sierra Leone are singing in the camps so far from home listen to Reuben singing Soda Soap and to Makengoh's Living Stone I can't stand your fake tears that you cry to support your carreer you haven't seen what Reuben or Ricky saw but they still Rise And Shine Très Très Fort how can you pretend to cry if they still smile your fake tears are making me sick the sky is grey the leafs are brown the leafs are falling to the ground this is unbearable sad today everything feels bad dark clouds conceal the sun the weather makes me wanna die tears are running down my face suicide's the only way your fake tears are making me sick yes, they're making me sick

one of the best times in my life I spend in the parks and streets of Banja Luka and I really lost my heart to this city and its people and to Keker the best bar for another round of Nektar and some shots of Rakia hvala na svemu Banja Luko i vidimo se uskoro - till then I won't forget the way from Boska down to Vrbas and from Keker to Kastel so raise your glasses, zivio, and sing this song with me

once upon a time with three mini-amps just one microphone without a stand that's how we started it back in 2004 with so many dreams but no idea at all but somehow we survived and somehow we're still alive look at us now we're growing old and still the streets are not paved with gold still strings detune and still strings brake still we are true, no sellouts, no fakes from The Last Row you can Still Hear us like a Brainspiller Wraith The Head, it makes no sense but we're still here, we're still here we found our way and we found our sound we had some ups and we had some downs but in the end what really counts are all those friends that we have found and that's the reason why we survived and the reason why we're still alive we're growing old but we're still childish this outro's stupid but we like it

we've got music in our veins we've got music in our hearts we've got music in our souls we've got music for our lifes there is music in the air without music we are lost because music is the medicine for all the fucked up minds so I strum on my bass without a trace of talent in my fingers but I have a lot of fun check this out, it's getting loud my advise: twist and shout I am not the next pop-star playing my guitar is my mental healing so I sing out of key, obviously it's not for fame it's for friendship and for fun so go and call me old, no I'm not bald my flatcap is my fashion so go and fuck yourself

I know that life's not fair and it's not easy at all so you don't need to tell me a lifelong rat race, only the strongest survive but it's no use complaining it's not the end, I'll get on my feet again and I don't really care, I'll have a laugh anyway I know you can fall down and the asphalt may be hard but that's no reason to worry you can graze yourself or even break all your bones but there's no use staying lying it's not the end, we will sing the chorus again this is the end, one third higher than the rest
