Track Name: Wildfire
the wildfire is spreading rapidly down in the square
eventually that's the expected response to the state

it's like you're being pushed around
labor force, casualized, it's like
they took out a mortgage on your damn life,
if you wanna shout out your rage, the time is now

are you sick of it? are you fighting with me?
will you give what it takes to be finally free?
are you sick of it? are you fighting with me?

fight!

are you sick of it? are you fighting with me?
will you give what it takes to be finally free?
are you sick of it? are you fighting with me?

the symptoms of the failure
the fall of the empire
is in everybody's eyes now
but we still live in fear
we shiver and hide everyday

we buy their words
we swallow their orders
the doubt has become unacceptable
but we still live in fear
we shiver and hide everyday

we still live in fear
we shiver and hide everyday

we still live in fear
we shiver and hide - not today

are you sick of it? are you fighting with me?
will you give what it takes to be finally free?
are you sick of it? are you fighting with me?
will you give what it takes to be finally free?
are you sick of it? are you fighting with me?
Track Name: Antifa And Alert
it feels like a recurring nightmare
identity turns into law
the masses are numb and blind
those ghosts can make their return

you see, it's so inelegant to say dictatorship
let's call it another chapter in history
and no one will consider it a shame
'cause every man and woman is to blame

the lack of awareness makes
it easy to subjugate
when consciousness becomes dull
the enemy arrives at the gates

the enemy often is known and comes from within
an evil we experienced already, it's the fascist regime

they'll try to make it look more fair
they'll try to hide the consequence
they'll try to infiltrate the state
won't be so hard they're already in

every one rejecting that disease
will hold the tools to smash any illusion and they will know
it can't return

my grandfather says they came knocking at his door
they wanted him to join their foolish plan
and when they will come knocking at my door
I'll give them the same answer: go to hell

the only answer – go to hell
the only answer – go to hell
the only answer – go to hell
you filthy fascists – go to hell
Track Name: Rage Has Gone
intrinsic failure now unfolds
in the land of silence made of tissue paper
concealed behind a curtain of gold
what you see – what you say
what you think – what you pay
doesn't matter anymore
'cause our dignity is rolling down the hillside
of the wealth hoarded on our bones

making money out of our bones

in our garden among the roses
we feel as cozy as if it were our deathbed
'cause
rage has gone

we won't cast a stone
we won't cast a stone

intrinsic failure now unfolds
it's a plan to follow, it's a business plan
to turn you suffering into gold
they will take – day by day
what you gain – everyday
it's what you have never really held
'cause your dignity is rolling down the hillside
of the wealth hoarded on your bones

making money out of your bones

in your garden among your roses
you feel as cozy as if it were your deathbed
'cause
rage has gone

you won't cast a stone
you won't cast a stone

we're coal for a machine with faulty gears
industrial discharge of a failure
but you can think that you will get your chance
you're working hard for that and they can't deny
your sacrifice
to make things right
your sacrifice
you give'em your life

it's your life!
you can't bend and sell out your life
Track Name: The Acceptance Of War
the echo of the boots hitting these streets
the flag of a nation waving - in the wind
the smell of the blood, the cinders of the past
the disgust of - killing

people, that's not a job
your heroes, what are they fighting for?
it's just corporate lies
hidden behind your fucking - pride

trained to kill to export democracy
to attack is to defend and war is peace

can't tell war from peace

modern routine - militarized
presence of the government in daily life

a soldier at every corner
“stand up and salute!” those fallen for
what?

to defend what's falling apart
what is falling apart

they increase their control over us


while war's far away they stage on tv
a mechanical farce they call democracy

the dissent has no voice, the protagonist's fear
through this moral blackmail, the acceptance of war
Track Name: Through These Eyes
I'm a little man
I'm a jailer for myself
in fact no one knows
what tears up my frightned soul
and won't let me see
I'm the demiurge of my misery
in the hotbed of fears, fed with faith, lust, endless
greed, I am my own prison day and night

I'll never see the light
the untold truth that barely seeps throught these eyes
the masses can't arise
and I will lay quiet in this bed, with tied hands and veiled eyes

I'm the shapeless sand
that is sliding through your hand
like the careless look
at an advert on the bus
that drives you home
every day at five o' clock and then, almost like a flash the perception of the truth that you won't get

I'll never see the light
the untold truth that barely seeps throught these eyes
the masses can't arise
and I will lay quiet in this bed, with tied hands and veiled eyes

a hint to freedom
when my mind is wandering
stuck in alleys and contorted roads
to then realize that I'm just wandering
like a ghost in a prison of my own
alone
alone
alone
alone
Track Name: Tomorrow Never Knows
what can i say?

the machine is grinding down our dreams and future
when a full wallet wins over an empty stomach
I cannot just sit and stare
at the billions of idiots blindfolded
drowning happily on their couches
and this is how they live
in their constant recklessness and fear
I don't want to live
in a plastic world of plastic dreams

I want to be
I want to be the crack in their gray wall
I want to be the end of their empire
I want to be the arson in their temples
I want to be their decline

their decline - comes tomorrow
their decline - this is all that we need
their decline - comes tomorrow
their decline - this is all that we need

it's the end of exploitation and suffering
it's the end of their tyranny

their decline - comes tomorrow
their decline - this is all that we need

so let's start it today
let's take part in this game
their decline
Track Name: Love Has No Gender
interactions kept under control
it's the ethic of falling in love

the morality of phisicality
a responsible duality

an historical plague, the dictatorship of preconceptions
but my heart's still a heart, and my nature's my nature
it's the way that we are

liberate your mind
unchain your body and your heart

it's still you and me
our passion is not what we are

love has no gender, 'cause love
gives you and me the same thrills

love has no gender, 'cause love
makes you and me so unique
free to live our attraction and sexuality
there's only one way to make love
don't you know? love has no gender, it's just love
Track Name: Life Science Of Death
in his aseptic lab
the man in white is bent over a table
holding his victim with a scalpel in his hand

prepared for another test
<<vocal chords have been cut
and the specimen has been sedated

a minimum dose should do just fine for the test
- he's thinking - there's room for mercy in science
they can't complain,
all those stupid protests and people fighting against hls>>
torture is called an experiment, life science of death

and this happens all around us
we just can't stay in silence
from a cage of green hill
to the table of a lab
this is what they keep calling science
you know

pharmaceutical corporations
don't care about them
don't care if you will be their ultimate test
don't care about anything so try to understand

no higher purpose can be
an excuse for the blood that you spill

science with no moral perspective
living beings used as tools
objectified
and standardized
their lives, profitable and unworthy lives

it is a compassionate dissection
an ethical suffering
objectified
and standardized
their lives, profitable and unworthy lives

objectified
and standardized
their lives, profitable and unworthy lives

objectified
and standardized
their lives, profitable and unworthy lives
Track Name: Destroy / Rebuild
destroy, rebuild
don't alienate
to change the landscape means being part of it

a new synergy
of different grains of sand
will make a difference in the sandstorm to come

new infrastructures
to substitute those we once criticized

we must create
those things we want to have
to shape an alternative to the status quo

subverting doesn't mean
annihilating all things with no further steps

what follows is the harder part
of any revolutionary path

it's not an end, it's not a target,
it's not an aim, it's how it starts

a praxis of change
an effective project
the real fulfillment of a new design

changing ourselves
it has to start there
objects and subjects of a bigger plan

decentralize
power, dismantle hierarchy and then
we can deconstruct
the chain of command,
categories, barriers and borders, cages,
walls and enclosures, and then create

mutual aid and respect
humanity again as a value
let solidarity substitute greed

autonomy and liberty
taking care of each other
this is how it's supposed to be

it's not easy, i know
we've been shaped in the mould
deconstructing ourselves
it's the first thing to do, it's because

you can't subvert the world
if you can't find the courage to subvert yourself

courage is contagious
so keep going and don't be afraid to set the path

and soon you will see
the landscape transform in front of you

if you give up the struggle
what's there to achieve in your life?

an industrial component
you are barely alive

in this market society
we live

just tell me your opinion:
do we live?

I can't see

annexed to a warfare producing machine
take advantage of what you believe
you will remember my words - I hope it won't be too late
