Track Name: Vision 2020 Vision
I can see clearly now
I see the tension grow/
I see riot shields and crowd control

depressed faces haunt the streets/
nobody cares for people ́s needs/

violence will soon explode
frustration reaches overload
the revolution is imminent
we are in the year of discontent

We can see clearly now/
We see the tension grow/
We are not prepared to bow/
barricades pile up in the streets/
all fed up with senseless tweets

marauding hordes fight to survive
looting will become a way of life
the revolution is imminent
we are in the year of discontent

IT NEEDS A CLEAR MIND
WITH A CLEAR VISION
IT NEEDS A STRONG HAND
FOR A STRONG DECISION
IT NEEDS A CLEAR MIND
AND A 2020 VISION
FORWARD FORWARD NEVER STOP
A CLEAR VISION FOR THE FUTURE
FORWARD FORWARD NEVER STOP
THE EYES FOCUSED SENSES SHARPENED
NO GIVING UP UNTIL THEY DROP

I see clearly now/
Who is friend and foe/
I see lemmings waiting in a row
Leaders of the new vision
Their Diciples obey their sick decisions

kill the rich and kill the poor
soon they'll come knocking at your door
the revolution is imminent
we are in the year of discontent

Track Name: Welcome To The Blackout
flies are everywhere
and roaches the size of rats
suck on rats the size of cats
and cats play with corpses
rotting away in ruins
marauding hordes of droogs control the streets...

WELCOME TO THE BLACKOUT
WELCOME TO THE SIEGE
WELCOME TO THE BREAKDOWN
THE COLLAPS (IS) WITHIN REACH

Wild youth on a rampage
there is panic in the streets
no respect for nothing
the sound of body beats
without a prior warning
they spray a deadly haze
acid assaults
leave eyes without a face

WELCOME TO THE BLACKOUT
WELCOME TO THE SIEGE
WELCOME TO THE BREAKDOWN
THE COLLAPS WITHIN REACH

hour zero
resurrection of old rules
moral collapse
an empire of fools

infested with pollution
the city slowly dies

the dust of rotting memories
swallows the silent cries

WELCOME TO THE BLACKOUT
WELCOME TO THE SIEGE
WELCOME TO THE BREAKDOWN
THE COLLAPS WITHIN REACH
Track Name: Trigger Warning
you better stay
in your cocoon
you ́ll have to leave it
much too soon

the world outside
is not your friend
you ́ll realize that
in the end

shut your eyes
and close your ears
we protect you
from your fears

shut your eyes
and close your ears
we protect you
from your fears

This is a trigger warning
An alert shock absorbent
This ia a trigger warning
Enjoy the safety zone
This is a trigger warning
Images too disturbing
Beware if they are shown
Enjoy your safety zone

nothing to irritate you
noone to agitate you
no thoughts to infiltrate you

or get your taste of taboo

shut your eyes
and close your ears
we protect you
from your fears

shut your eyes
close your ears
we protect you
from your fears

Forced to sit and watch the news
Clamps to keep my eyes focused
Forced to see the ugly truth
It is not for you to choose

shut your eyes
and close your ears
we protect you
from your fears

This is a trigger warning
An alert shock absorbent
This ia a trigger warning
Enjoy the safety zone
This is a trigger warning
Images too disturbing
Beware if they are shown
Enjoy your safety zone
Track Name: Wolfen (Her Pack)
I got an uncontrollable urge /
another day brings another purge /
I roam the streets to find a trace /
to find a reason and solace

I got a feeling inside of me /
it ́s a kind of strange melancholy /
don't feel complete, something is wrong/
I need a place where I belong

But every night I hear her call /
A whisper first and then a howl /
I disappear into the night so black
I'm back on track - back with her pack

together we will rule the night
all teamed up ready to fight
from dusk till dawn we run as one
our hunting season has begun

I got a feeling inside of me /
it ́s a kind of strange melancholy /
now I feel whole and I feel strong/
I found a place where I belong

And every night I hear her call /
A whisper first and then a howl /
I disappear into the night so black
I'm back on track - back with her pack
Track Name: Extinction Time
heat rising
ice receding
water pollution
rivers dry
what's the solution?

towering waves /
torrential rain /
the last flood/
will drown the pain

Destroying fires
Ashes to ashes
In the streets
Violent clashes

devestation /
escalation /
mankind face
extermination

desolation
infestation
mankind face
extermination

THIS WORLD IS OUT OF JOINT
WE ́VE REACHED THE TIPPING POINT
WE ́RE ON THE EVE
THE EVE OF DISRUPTION

THIS WORLD IS OUT OF JOINT
WE ́VE REACHED THE TIPPING POINT
WE ́RE ON THE BRINK
THE BRINK OF DESTRUCTION

devestation /
escalation /
mankind face
extermination

desolation
infestation
mankind face
extermination

Can't take the heat
product of greed
passing the blame
in the hall of shame

Violations
in all nations
just a little spark
before eternal dark

THE WORLD IS OUT OF JOINT
WE ́VE REACHED THE TIPPING POINT
WE ́RE ON THE EVE
THE EVE OF DISRUPTION
THIS WORLD IS OUT OF JOINT
WE ́VE REACHED THE TIPPING POINT
WE ́RE ON THE BRINK
THE BRINK OF DESTRUCTION
Track Name: The Carpet Crawlers
There is lambs wool under my naked feet

The wool is soft and warm
Gives off some kind of heat

A salamander scurries into flame to be destroyed
Imaginary creatures are trapped in birth on celluloid

The fleas cling to the golden fleece
Hoping they'll find peace

Each thought and gesture are caught in celluloid

There's no hiding in memory
There's no room to avoid

The crawlers cover the floor in the red ochre corridor
For my second sight of people, they've more lifeblood than before

They're moving in time to a heavy wooden door
Where the needle's eye is winking, closing on the poor

The carpet crawlers heed their callers
We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out

There's only one direction in the faces that I see
Its upward to the ceiling, where the chamber's said to be
Like the forest fight for sunlight, that takes root in every tree
They are pulled up by the magnet, believing they are free

The carpet crawlers heed their callers
We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out

Mild-mannered supermen are held in kryptonite

And the wise and foolish virgins giggle with their bodies glowing bright

Through the door a harvest feast is lit by candlelight
Its the bottom of a staircase that spirals out of sight

The carpet crawlers heed their callers
We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out

The porcelain mannikin with shattered skin fears attack
And the eager pack lift up their pitchers- they carry all they lack
The liquid has congealed, which has seeped out through the crack

And the tickler takes his stickleback.

The carpet crawlers heed their callers
We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out.
We've got to get in to get out.
We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out

...To get out
We got to get in to get out
We got to get in (get out to get in)
The carpet crawlers heed their callers
We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out.
We've got to get in to get out.

(((((Got to, got to...
Got to get in to get out
(Got to get in to get out)
We got to get in to get out
(Got to get in to get out)
We got to get in to get out
We got to get in to get out
Get in to get out

Got to get in (get out) to get out
Got to get in to get out
Get out, get out, get out...))))
Track Name: Fires
My House is burning to the ground,
My heart plays dangerous games,
With madness, lust, a bitter taste,
I resolve to spread the flames.

Hot fire,
Deadly fire,

Start a fire, let it dance and lick your toes,
Your desire, a parade on burning coals.

This place is out of control,
I need some air

WAIT
I don’t wanna let the fires burn anymore
PRAY
I don’t wanna let the phantom’s flames, lash at my back door
WAIT
I don’t wanna let the fires burn anymore
PRAY
I don’t wanna be a beacon for, ill and scathed whores

She always comes at the time
I’m most in need
Endlessly twerking and full of disease
I’m not a man who would ever hurt a fly
but she turns me into a byproduct

And I need an escape, and I need a releas
The fire circles flames inside of me,

By now you’d think I had extinguishers ready
but the fires so hot and I’m so damned heady

WAIT
I don’t wanna let the fires burn anymore
PRAY
I don’t wanna let the phantom’s flames, lash at my back door
WAIT
I don’t wanna let the fires burn anymore
PRAY
I don’t wanna be a beacon for, ill and scathed whores

We’ll rescue all the spores
We’ll hose down all the beds
We’ll start to build again
We will rebuild the trust
Track Name: Obacht
Er ist ein Menschenfeind /
er liebt die Einsamkeit/
in der Dunkelheit/
verrichtet er seine Drecksarbeit

Er spürt es jede Nacht/
wie sie in ihm erwacht/
diese geheime Macht/
die ihn zum Mörder macht
es wächst das Tier in ihm/
er wird zum Ungetüm
ist die Verwandlung
dann vollbracht/
verschwindet er
in tiefer Nacht

Seid gewarnt und
gebt gut Acht
es hat schon viele umgebracht
Obacht Obacht
gebt gut Acht ... ...
Obacht Obacht
in der Nacht

Seinen Plan schmiedet er am Thresen
dann treibt er sein Unwesen
er scheut das Tasgeslicht, verrichtet seine Pflicht
sowas wie Liebe kennt er nicht

Es steigt die Lust in Ihm
eine kranke Sehnsucht so extrem

und ist die Tat dann vollbracht, sogleich
ist sein Höhepunkt erreicht

Seid gewarnt und
gebt gut Acht
es hat schon viele umgebracht
Obacht Obacht
gebt gut Acht ... ...
Obacht Obacht
in der Nacht

Und wenn sie sich dann nicht mehr bewegt
dann wird sie kurzerhand zersaegt
in grossen Taschen weggetragen
und irgendwo abgestellt und verlassen
Track Name: DestiNation Doomsday
In the tower of madness
At his desk of gold
The president of darkness
Watches mayhem unfold
Deep below lies the city
Shaken by protest and rage
In front of him gleams a button
That decides your fate

He’s a ticking time bomb
Noone is safe

Destination Doomsday
The killer is out, he’s out to play
Be prepared for the final blow
He’s the last man standing to enjoy the show

A man is dictating
Noone else has a say
Backed by hypocrites
Who serve and obey
A megalomaniac with goals set high
His menacing tower reaching sky high
The world under his thumbs
He believes he’s having all trumps

Destination Doomsday
The killer is out, he’s out to play
Be prepared for the final blow
He’s the last man standing to enjoy the show
Track Name: Alllies
War is looming and the tensions grow
economies crushed expectations low
troops are forming, drones are in the air
borders closed, irritation everywhere

brothers in arms: hear the call for action
march united, be a part of the faction

if you need a reason, fake the evidence
the union of nations comes to your defence

LIES LIES - ALL LIES
LIES LIES - ALLIES
ALL I HEAR IS LIES LIES
ALL MUST FOLLOW, WE'RE ALLIES

When talks fail, too proud to settle
peace has no charms, straight into battle
you are bound by your oath of loyalty
march united on this path of perfidity

IF YOU REALLY WANNA KNOW before you follow
LISTEN TO THE WHISTLE BLOW

ONE DIRECTION
NO DEFECTION
NO WAY BUT OBEY
SHOCK AND AWE
TOTAL WAR
CALL UP FOR D-DAY

LIES LIES - ALLIES
LIES LIES - ALL LIES
ALL I HEAR IS LIES LIES
ALL MUST FOLLOW, WE'RE ALLIES

IF YOU REALLY WANNA KNOW BEFORE YOU FOLLOW
LISTEN TO THE WHISTLE BLOW
Track Name: FU
The man with no conscience
Made a promise to his base
That dreams will come true for all collars of blue
A future he’s building on debts
Like his golden empire of excess

You claim to be our savior
You’re a superstar of failure
You’re dangerously incompetent
The damage will be permanent

The man with no conscience
Wants to build a wall
Isolate and segregate
A wakeup call for all
Visions of swastikas in my head
You know what I’m getting at

You think you’re a master
You’re the king of disaster
There has been no precedent
The damage will be permanent

Fuck You!
Track Name: Active Shooter Situation
He was discharged with honours /
they called him unfit to serve /
this was less than he hoped for/
and less than he deserved/
Fallen comrad's screams/
They haunt him in his dreams/
hears them shouting orders/
fighting foreign regimes/

now they call him unfit for duty/
He feels the fury within

ACTIVE SHOOTER SITUATION /
HE'D BEEN SERVING FOR HIS NATION
SAD BUT TRUE TO HEAR HIS STORY /
BUT NO REWARD FOR FORMER GLORY
-
He doesn't want their pity /
just what is due to him /
wants back into combat /
because his future at home is grim/
he ́s paying heed to duty/
he ́s certain of his way/
he ́s proud of his vocation/
to serve and to obey

now they call him unfit for duty/
it wakes the fury within

on Veterans Day
when the fanfares play
he will leave his mark
down by the park

he'll forget noone
it's payback time
his bullets will find their way
On Veterans Day
his bullets find their way
on Veterans Day

ACTIVE SHOOTER SITUATION /
HE'D BEEN SERVING FOR HIS NATION
SAD BUT TRUE TO HEAR HIS STORY /
BUT NO REWARD FOR FORMER GLORY
Track Name: Human
destroyer of worlds
purveyor of pain
