Track Name: Intro / Bad Blood
This is where you...

waste your lives
losing time
digging deep
to find out
that in the end
there was nothing there

this is when you...

open eyes and realize
that the truth you can't dispel

is that my heaven is your hell
Track Name: Tension
There's some tension in my head
my life is hanging by a thread
you just want me to feel stressed
cause you put me to the test

you want to show that i've wasted my time
but let's put it straight– it's you who's fucked it up
cause you forgot how to live your life
that's why you are trying to get some of mine

there's some tension in your head
telling you this life won't wait
you'll never know that it's too late
you'll never get a helping hand...
Track Name: Nothing Personal
The longer I listen
the more I tend to love
the shit you say about me
cause it's not the shit that you're made of
and i guess that i can understand
the reasons for your hate
i guess i'd also hate myself
if i were you, let's put it straight:

your hatred makes me feel so fine
cause there's nothing i want more
than to insult your bigoted mind
be the contrast to the things you stand for

if you want to talk
i guess i'll be for throwing bricks
but if you want to declare a war
i think that i can opt for peace
they say it leads to nowhere
what's worse i think they're right
but i can't refrain from getting pleasure
out of being the reason of your sleepless nights...
Track Name: Redefined/Redesigned
I guess that we are fuckin' losing touch
it's going on before our very eyes
all the lies they use to feed us with
the perfect soundtrack for world's demise

REDEFINED
REDESIGNED

You'll see it's going to work for you...
Just get the essence of the change...
And what you fuckin' think right now
Will be worth shit in the end!

REDEFINED
REDESIGNED

Call in guards, get some weapons
so we know who's the boss
don't give a shit about the bodycount
just give us safety at any fuckin' cost...

...and I guess I've never felt before
such an urge to set things straight...
I'm fuckin' terrified right now
cause someone wants me to feel safe...
Track Name: Burn the Bridge
There's no pity, no remorse
No excuses, noone's fault
if you want to stay on surface,
put this guilt trip to a halt

One love
One life
Long days
Short nights

love it/leave it, go for broke
get the most

burn the bridge!

Cut this shit off, leave it behind
stand face to face with your life
anoter battle for you to fight
it's like a neverending strife!

One love
One life
Long days
Short nights
Track Name: Crime Scenes
This world has got to fuckin' end
to make a good place for all of us
the place in which you can feel safe
in which the absurd won't be „a must”

too many crime scenes in your fuckin' dreams
too many new dreams because of crime scenes

the feeling that it should be torn apart
is stronger that the will to change it
you can't save something that is rotting out
so let it die and let's start this over

too many crime scenes in your fuckin' dreams
too many new dreams because of crime scenes
Track Name: Iron Locks
Build a gate
Lock it up
swallow key
turn the lights off

go to bed, close your eyes

face it!
But make it quick!
This world won't wait
to kiss your lips!

Go to bed, close your eyes
wait till the day comes...
Track Name: Nails
you say that there's a light
that every tunnel has its end
that the day comes after night
and everything can be fixed

you say that we must hope the best
believe some shit about the fate
that life may turn better to us
we just have to keep the faith

Look at your fingers and nails...
...why the walls round you
are fuckin' scratched and your nails bitten
and fingers covered
with the colours of your walls' paint...
Track Name: On the Mend
They say you're a threat so they put you away
they poison your blood, there's more meds on the way
they damage your head so you can't think straight
they take your belongings so you won't hurt yourself

LOCKED OUT/ ON THE MEND
GETTING BETTER IN A FENCED PEN
LOCKED OUT/ ON THE MEND
YOUR LIFE IS GOING DOWN THE DRAIN

Down the drain!

There's no way out, it's a critical point
the better you feel, the more they want
to lock you away, without your volition
as long as you can speak, you are to their disposition

LOCKED OUT/ ON THE MEND
GETTING BETTER IN A FENCED PEN
LOCKED OUT/ ON THE MEND
YOUR LIFE IS GOING DOWN THE DRAIN

You're fuckin' locked out...
As long as you think clear you are no use to them...

YOU'RE ON THE MEND – DOWN THE DRAIN
YOU'RE ON THE MEND – DOWN THE DRAIN

Compulsory trip down the drain!
Track Name: Misplaced Anger
So how should i put it to make you understand
you never get the message when i yell this in your fuckin' face
we only live once, there's no life after death
so why should i waste it dealing with your fuckin' case

Misplaced anger!

that's more or less the way you wanted things to be
you tried to divide and i guess that you succeed
you've got your shitty little space where no one gets in
you wanted to be above but now you are in a really deep shit
Track Name: Empty Rooms
empty words, broken teeth
broken bottles, private grief
fashion victim, vintage shit,
full-time job is losing streak
love thy neighbour, kill kill kill
see you later, yeah, but still
kill yourself, look inside
wearing black, the time of my life
skulls and bones, skulls and knives
love, truth, friendship 'till i die,
crimson sky, fight fight fight,
full of shit, second sight

You can scream your fuckin' lungs out
you may be the one to say „no more”
but in empty room like this one
it will always bounce off the wall
Track Name: Nobody's Waiting
There's nothing there
except the 'stage fright'
you're missing the lines
in what we call real life
You keep staring up
and you still believe
that all of a sudden
you'll get out of misery
but...
NOBODY'S WAITING and
NOBODY CARES
What makes you special
among those who act as you
you'd better get your shit together
it's high time you faced the truth
see...
NOBODY'S WAITING and
NOBODY CARES
They teach you 'patience'
they don't want you to give up
there'd be no sense in waiting
if you suddenly found out...
that
NOBODY'S WAITING and
NOBODY CARES
It helps you deal with the world
But there's never alternative
it gives you illusions
it makes you so fuckin' naive
but...
NOBODY'S WAITING and
NOBODY CARES about you...
