your values
your choices
the kind of life
you want to live

we have
nothing in common

right to control
one's own body
no one has the right
to violate that
right to control

raised like cattle to consume
lives filled
with false needs
advertisements create illusions
of happiness and better life
taught to consume
we are taught to consume
our lives are valued
we are all products
Track Name: No Escape
barely living
unbearable pain

strapped to a bed
no human contacts
day after day
no escape

in your hands
kept alive for the
wishes of others
but out of sight
out of mind
forgotten
Track Name: Modern-day Slavery

western world

lowest prices
Track Name: Piss-stained Press
journalist ethics
long forgotten
making money
from dead and rotten
piss-stained press
printed on skin
abuse those
who merely survive
only to make
tomorrows headline
piss-stained press
blood is your ink
Track Name: Purchased Happiness
purchased happiness
filling the emptiness with cash
material luxury
hollow life
depression
Track Name: Crippled and Dead
landmines and grapebombs
still lying in ground
thousands of civilians
crippled and dead
no change
for recovery
daily life
constant danger
scars of war
never healed
parting gift
hidden death
Track Name: Cycle of Misery
acts of oppression
denying freedom
denying life
murderous hatemachine
crushing homes
crushing hopes
cycle of misery
frustration turns into desperation
attacks againts the oppressor
and again the machine tightens it's grip
the cycle of misery continues
Track Name: False Comfort
false comfort given
by homeopathic medication
ignoring an urgent need
for proper treatment
Track Name: Shepherd

forcing your set of rules on others
no exceptions from the norm

divine law

war is hell
hidden from view
senseless acts
of cruelty
total disregard
for civilian lives
collateral murder

with macho attitude
pitiful egos
unnecessary violence
unleashed on a whim
protected by
their own kind
security guards
drunk on authority
waste of space
just pathetic waste of space
Track Name: Empty pose
acting tough
keeping up
the image that you've created of yourself
lots of talk
no actions
just empty
provocations
but in the end you are nothing
just an empty pose
Track Name: Traditions
this is how it has always been
glinging to traditions
with all your strength
afraid of change
afraid of anything new
this is how it has always been
Track Name: Bleak
no strength to wake up
all life seems so pointless
another day another struggle
life lost all meaning
no sign of improvement
no hope of anything better
no will to survive
no sign of improvement
no hope of anything better
Track Name: Commodities
reducing persons
to objects of trade
human commodities
for monetary gain
false promises
of a better tomorrow
vain hopes abused
malevolently deceived
sold to a life
of misery and slavery
Track Name: Profiting on fear
exaggerating the threat
spreading the fear of death
selling a sense of security
marketing the cure for the masses
profiting on fear
feeding on panic
Track Name: Maskmen
today like
every other morning
you put
your mask on
your mask of wide smile
no meaning
no content
your speech
no potent
your mask of small talk
your mask of bleached teeth
your mask of witty stories
behind the mask
a ruin of man
take it off!
