Track Name: Lifer
years turned into fucking decades
as you waited for us to fall

commited for a lifetime
those two words still mean the world

all the stuck-up defamation
only tempered us, made us strong

commited for a lifetime
those two words still mean the world
to me
Track Name: Tunnel Vision
unconditional growth
breed and populate
economy first
create and escalate
substential progress
improve and boost the rate
drain it, dry it, make it dead
produce and reproduce
drain it, dry it, make it dead

tunnel vision

unconditional growth
breed and populate
economy first
create and escalate
you take a fall
drown in tar and cement
drain it, dry it, make it dead
dead end politics
drain it, dry it, extinct yourself

tunnel vision
Track Name: Two-Face
always concerned with what others do
gossip and fuss quicken you
can't distinguish what is true

your true intentions come in view
envy and distrust consume you
self-doubt and hate driving you

two-face, fame chase
rat race, debased
misplaced

your masquerade is falling through
our patience is long overdue
'cause cheat and lie's all that you do

two-face, fame chase
rat race, debased
misplaced

the water is wet
mills go on treading
while daylight's burning
traitors keep traiting

that's who you are
i ain't blind
i've seen enough
of your two-faced kind
Track Name: Only Warning
not a word
not a sound
shut that trap
or hit the ground

this is the only warning
there's nothing more to be said

ain't your peer
nor your friend
won't work it out
and i don't mean well

this is the only warning
there's nothing more to be said
so don't you cross my path again
Track Name: Life Among Liars And Thieves
pride of creation
you use & abuse
betray their needs
in the likeness of god
rule them all
take what you don't need

they live among liars and thieves

take their freedom
take their labour
take their dignity
break up their bonds
destroy their home
cover it up with concrete

they live among liars & thieves

take their flesh
take their skin
take their lives
and flush 'em into the sea
Track Name: Live It Or Leave It
social climbing at the cost of others
betray, exploit in the name of science
graduate bigshot, explain yourself
to a society, you claim to repudiate

live it or leave it
don't you just use it
live it or leave it
just fucking leave

point that finger, denunciate
better your status, weak charakter at the gate
scenestar, preacher, get out of my face
running your mouth, acknowledgment chase

live it or leave it
don't you befoul it
live it or leave it
just fucking leave

sick, sick, sick, sick of your act
your hypocricy drives me nuts
sick sick sick sick of your lies
i despise your fucking guts

live it or leave it
don't you just use it
live it or leave it
just fucking leave
Track Name: Mayfly
scarmarks on my back
ink poisoning made me a wreck
spilling out guts, asking for seconds
sweating blood, knuckles breaking

but you're just showing off
on the dance floor
nervously watching
the fucking back door

passing craze, the hype's over
it's time to run, the exit's yonder
mayflying scumbag, nine day wonder
end of season, you're going under
Track Name: Bohemian Corpses
it's just another party
just another fashion show
a neverending weekend
just more reasons to let it blow

sophisticated bohemian - metropolitan bum
wasted youth chic, dulled & sored out at 25
shortcoming world citizen - degenerated scum
club yourself to death - meat wagon out of my town

fashionable corpses by bitterness and casual fun

just another party, just another fashion show
just another 5-day weekend, just another lost soul
Track Name: Dry
existence incomplete
just struggling to make it fit
standards keep twisting the knife
routine, a blueprint for life

breathless tired emptied broken down

worn out drained out stressed out burned out

existence incomplete
just struggeling to make it fit
standards keep twisting the knife
routine's bleeding me dry

breathless tired emptied broken down

worn out drained out stressed out burned out

you won't let me catch my breath
Track Name: Turncoat
your glory days
way back in the past
you've earned your stripes
then retired fast

the trip is over
now hop on the bus
you've done your time
we'll give you a pass

you did the talking
well, it's us who still walk
the proud and the few
will never let go

turncoat, tourist - give me a break
turncoat, tourist - you always smelled fake
turncoat, tourist - spoiling what's mine
turncoat, tourist - you got no spine
Track Name: Mind Trap
fucked in the head
a shed of red
on everything
you put me in

mind trap (x2)

a state of mind
that puts me behind
all the galore
life has in store

mind trap (x4)

mind trap - ultimate alienation
mind trap - a poisonous dogmatization
mind trap - another state of mind
mind trap - i ain't of your kind

say no to life (x3)

mind trap
Track Name: On The Edge
still got the edge
will never let go
did 20 years
i'm ready for more

my days may be numbered
but i don't fear the end
a fucked up loner
but true to myself (x2)

still got the edge
i'm not giving in

still got the edge
i'm not giving in
thousands have fallen
the lines've gone (/gotten) thin

they keep dropping like flies
disgracing moreover
but i'm holding my post
you won't see me bend over (x2)

still got the edge
straight razor edge
i'm still on the edge
i'm still here (i am) straight edge
Track Name: It Won't Save You
you got us cornered
no retreat, no regret
death or glory
counterattack

hard times ahead, reality check
minimum wage won't push us back

you got us cornered
there's no way back
forward to death
counterattack

hard times ahead, reality check
throwing us scraps won't save your neck

no, it won't
it won't save you
