Track Name: Dog Eat Dog
greedy hands, clenched to strangle me,
clenched to strangle you,
clenched to strangle everything they can take over

life or death, no one listens
to the scream of these desperate days

war and peace, ain't no different
tools both of a dog eat dog race

and those hands are bloody red
this is called progress
this is what we have

and now
all those faces are fading away
into the night
when we eat each other, like a desperate fight
to live, to prevail
as we were born enemies and not friends
again
like brothers with no blood to share

and sometimes someone tries to reach a hand
a small sign in this world of hate

i believe, tomorrow can be different
if we don't start right now
tomorrow will be to late

subvert this world!
and i know alone i can make the difference
it's all wrong but we can change
tomorrow will be to late

tomorrow will be to late

tomorrow will be to late
i said, i know

tomorrow will be to late
Track Name: Answers
so tell me something special i don't know
prepacked opinions always come and go
you swallow shit and pretend to criticize
a brain of wood can't be called open mind

and i won't tell you that i'm right
i hold no truth but at least i try
to find the answers in my life with no regret
to find the answers in myself

and the alternative to a puppet shouldn't be
another puppet with the same stupidity

you will never see me standing by your side
we're not the same, we are just like day and night

i live my life – keep questioning myself
you live a lie

you will never see me standing by your side
we're not the same, we are just like day and night

i live my life – keep questioning myself
you live a lie – a picture in your mind

another breath leaving my lungs
another shout exploding off my chest
what i feel is the need to express
myself

and the taking of position
is a process to create
in a world of no opinion, it's a way to compensate
with our differences differences differences
but it's all useless if you don't question yourself

don't want to have nothing to say
awareness is to create
if you've got nothing to say
you mean nothing, nothing, nothing!
Track Name: Sidewalks
the place i live
the place i die
it's a monster that devores my soul at night

the place i love
the place i hate
this place will make me pay for my own mistakes

like a room built with no window to breathe
like a tall wall that sorrounds me completely

it's me in the lioness' den

in the lanes needles and fogotten lives
in the squares cabriolets and a glass in a hand

double face of a reality i can't comprehend

i can't comprehend

i cannot see - a good opportunity
i cannot breathe – in this concrete jail of buildings

i still can see the boy i used to be
don't make of me the waste of a dreamless kid

while i walk i stare at the sidewalks
of this town i have to live in
don't know where my steps will lead me
Track Name: Of Sins And Chains
there's no salvation in accepting a written fate
don't wait
for a judgement, that's a chain hidden by faith
don't pray
you think i should repent before it is too late
stay away
submission's not the life i want
submission's not the life i want


in the deafening silence of god
i just believe in myself

don't give blind trust to a book
this life can be both heaven and hell

don't need no sign
to know i'm alive

you believe in something they gave you
in the shapes it's been forged by their rules
have you ever wondered what's in your prayers?
have you noticed – the words that you say?


do you really think you need such a dogma?
don't you think you already have enough chains?
has it brought you to liberation
or has it made you another kind of slave?

manipulation
of the consciences through golden lies
makes you feel you're born with a sin
that you've never - committed in your life

i'm alive – don't want to be blind
i'm alive – don't need any guide to know i'm right
i'm alive – i can be the author of my life
i'm alive – i'll never bow down under your sign

i'm alive – don't want to be blind
i'm alive – don't need any guide to know i'm right
i'm alive – i can be the author of my life
i'm alive – i'll never bow down under your sign
