Track Name: Something Like You
Something Like You - Lyrics

Oh fuck it
I really don ́t see why there is something like you in this world
And I did not, I did not expect that a human can be such a waste
It makes me angry
Cause you have nothing to offer except for fear and destruction
You torture my soul just to get an erection
You preach about hate and demolish the faith of the world

Oh damn it
I don't get what you do
Yes I get what you do
I don't get why you do that to us
You sick body of thoughts
What went wrong in your head
What the hell are you fighting against
You don't have the right
You just lie to yourself
Cause there can't be a reason to back up your murder
And no way to snuff out our strong faith in unity, justice and peace

Shut it down
Cause I think you don ́t know anything about the world
Well, I know that you don`t know anything about the world
When I have questions
When I ask myself
Why is this world so fucking annoying
Why is this world so self-destructive
Why can ́t it be like I think
Why can ́t it be like it should

I want to
Create a world
No place for a spiteful thought
Just friendly friends support
And I hope that you know, that I want more
Nothing to say, nothing to talk
About what you gave to our community
You crossed the line
You went way too far

So get out of my way, get out of my way
What I aim at
What I aim at
It ́s a world where there should be
Nobody, who spreads fear and panic
And nobody, who exploits our morals
And nobody, who tears our union
And nobody, who is like you

Track Name: Not The Only One Here
Not The Only One Here - Lyrics

I´m walking down the pavement
I realise that I´m just a person in the crowd
Nobody would even care if I shout out
Feels like I have no voice
Every man for himself
My power and my confidence tumble down my face
I nearly drown in the waves
Cause something pulls me down
And tries to suck away all I´ve gained
Without trying different thoughts
I can´t defend what I´ve got
It tries to show me that I am worthless

And I
Better now that I´m someone
Cause I am
Not the only one here

You push me
Touch me
Want me to see
That I am a nobody
But I don´t trust you
Honestly, I try to not believe a word you say
I want to be awake, reset myself
Cause I don ́t want a thought
That pulls me down
That kicks me around
I am suspended from life
I don ́t do what I like
Stop let me rearrange
It´s not easy to push yourself
I fear that everything I do is not much more than just a short erection

And I
Better now that I´m someone
Cause I am
Not the only one here

I stand here, not beside me
I activate myself
And I´m excited to surprise me
I stand here, not beside me
I activate myself
And I´m excited to surprise

And I
Better now that I´m someone
Cause I am
Not the only one here

Track Name: Is This Our Generation
Is This Our Generation - Lyrics

I come home at night
And I step onto a snail
I know it is disgusting
But it is just how it feels
When you're not anymore
In control of your bad habits
When you're not anymore
In control of your bad habits
There is no way out
Yes there is a way out
It is just not easy to get out of this crowd
Going one way
No space to elute
No place, No food, No interlude
And I'm running running running
There is no reason just running
I push myself from the one to the one and then back to the one
Never waste time by choosing which way to go,
Just follow the line, the sign, that, that should be fine
And I'm touching me, I am touching myself
Try to feel anything, I can't feel it at all
I don ́t listen anymore to the voice in my brain
I don't listen anymore to the screaming of my brain
Is that the taste, taste, taste, shit, go on, you are late
Don't miss the fake things happening around you
Found you crying on the floor, I want more more more
Cause I like to suffer and I like to suffer

Next one
I am ready to eat the day
Look left, look right
Turn around, don't smile
These are just sweaty fatty faces, which squeeze past me
I try not to move, but they move me
Please stop it
I want to get out of here
This future is long gone
I am new born and awake
I can do it
Whatever it is, just do it
The sound of bittersweaty melodies is turning me on
I want to listen but I can't stop, cause I'm still on the run
So I go on, not satisfied
But some things have to be done
Cause when I think about the places, I am already gone
They want me faster, want us faster
There is no time to rest
I have to cough, will puke, no air, I can not breath
It's getting tight and tighter, but there was a limit for this
We can't work faster, can't be younger
Don't you know that we live

Fuck I'm under pressure, body strain
Nervous twitches I'm on my way
Masks with a body, boys dressed in suits
They wanna be big and they don't care about you
I have a look around, nobody is looking around
Only mad amused teens laughing with a burnout smile
I look into dead eyes, dead child, their lives are banned
New grownups with an egoshooter sense
If it, it, it, goes on like this then it will turn us all off
Only brainless competition followed by heartless decisions
It takes the sense of our being
Will turn us into predators
Into a stupid, evil, callous, boring, shallow piece of shit
Is this what we want
Is this really what we want
Is this what we're proud of
This is not the world I wanted to be born in
This is not the paradise they told me I would live in
Is this our generation
Is this our god damn pride
Is this our god damn pride

Track Name: I Am Here To Stay
I Am Here To Stay - Lyrics

Can you believe
I was looking for a reason, why I do this
And it tortures me, I don ́t know
It has always been there
Has it always been there
Do I do what I want to do
Yes fuck it, I do
I know, I can fall down
I put my head, my heart, my life in
But I can still fall down
If no one follows, I will neither
No investor means that your work has no worth
But I can show you, it is not true
It´s just your point of view
I think I must remind myself
I rather gnash my teeth
Fall down on my knees
And do everything it needs
Than to agree

Get out of my way
I am here to stay
I am not here to come and leave on the same day
I am here, to be here
As long as I can
As much as I can
I will do, to win against you
Yes you, and everything you are
Everything you brought it will burn down in a war

You don ́t know me
But I think I can release your deep dreams
You can see I put my life in
Everything, I would do it again
Lets be honest, it could work better
But I don ́t give it away
I don ́t trust anyone who can make my day
Hey hey I am here to stay
Cause this is everything I want,
This is everything I want to be
I think you can see
I take all my energy
It ́s good you feel free
But who are you to know better than me

Get out of my way
I am here to stay
I am not here to come and leave on the same day
I am here, to be here
As long as I can
As much as I can
I will do, to win against you
Yes you, and everything you are
Everything you brought it will burn down in a war

I am at least more than you think
I am at least more than you could
I am at least more than I thought
I am at least more than
Can I go where I want
Can I change my direction
Can I destroy
Cause I kick around ideas in my head
And it challenges my decisions
All this open opportunities
They make me mad, I want to rip it up

Get out of my way
I am here to stay
I am not here to come and leave on the same day
I am here, to be here
As long as I can
As much as I can
I will do, to win against you
Yes you, and everything you are
Everything you brought it will burn down in a war
