about

"Vier Songs in englischer Sprache und mit politisch/sozialkritischen Lyrics wirbeln wie ein zerstörerischer Orkan umher, eine Mischung aus Hardcore und Punk, wie sie direkter kaum sein kann, nichts langsames, es wird nur nach vorne geprescht." - Ugly Punk

Track Name: Violent Backlash
As I looked at the flames,
my heart filled with pain,
felt like i'm insane.
Hate rises up in me,
my morality
is fading away.

RUN LIKE HELL!
'Cause it's time to pay!
EYE FOR AN EYE!
This is your judgement day!

RUN LIKE HELL!
'Cause it's time to pay!
BLOOD FOR BLOOD
This is your last day!

Disorder in my head
and hate in my veins!
It's up to us
to quit their fucking games!
BACKLASH!

Think with your mind
and not with your fists!
Turn the tables,
offense & resist!
BACKLASH!

Annoyed voices in my head,
tellin' me that
my time has come.
Annoyed voices in my head,
tellin' me that
must rough up this scum!

I am powered by hate,
controlled by rage
every reason comes too late.
Track Name: Tell Us The Truth
Another day, another fight,
the world prepares a war.
The first step is to frighten the people
and than exploit the poor.

TV tells stories 'bout terrorism and fear

Destroy mass media!
Fight mass media!
Stop mass media!
Tell us the truth!

Another night, another cry
and so it goes on and on.
Locate the enemy, show no mercy,
until' your stupid job is done.

TV tells stories 'bout terrorism and fear

Destroy mass media
Fight mass media
Stop mass media
Tell us the truth

Seek and destroy,
that's your fucked up way.
There's no place to hide
and no time to stay.
NO TIME TO STAY!

NO! I don't wanna kill
NO! I don't wanna fight
NO! I don't wanna die
FOR YOU! (...and you and you and you!)
Track Name: Absence Of Mind
Friday night, as the daylight dies,
I lie at home in my bed.
With blood tears in my eyes
and a gun in my hand, full of lead.

As the needle pierces my vein,
a burning starts under my skin.
But it slowly detaches the pain
and my life seems free from sin.
This world has nothing more to give
and I have nothing more to take.
I got just enough to live,
only drugs can stop the ache.

Feeling so numb…
Feeling so alone…
Feeling deaf and dumb…
My sanity is gone!

BREAK OUT!
I break my chains and leave this world of pain.
BREAK OUT!
I release my soul and I feelin' free again.

BREAK OUT! BREAK OUT! BREAK OUT! BREAK OUT! (...leave this world of pain)
BREAK OUT! BREAK OUT! BREAK OUT! BREAK OUT! (...and feelin' free again)

But now, it becomes clear to me.
I'm captured in this double bind,
can not think, can not breathe.
I must break out and leave it behind.

This world has nothing more to give
and I have nothing more to take.
I got just enough to live,
only drugs can stop the ache.

WATCH OUT!
Don't be a moron, 'cause it would be a shame.
WATCH OUT!
Pull yourself together and keep your mind sane.
Track Name: The Denial
he woke up one day and began to look around
couldn't trust his eyes, because of what he found
with fear in his eyes and shortness of breath
he was not alone, the only way seemed death
people were arrested, people like me and you
captured from the system, no will to break through
tortured and murdered, due to their filiation
millions died in this nightmare, called 'racial segregation'

DON'T FORGET THE EYES!
DON'T BELIEVE THEIR LIES!
look, what's come to pass
when they disclaim the past!
The Denial!

the fog of war disappeared, corpses everywhere
all crimes were uncovered, decay scent lay in the air
everybody looked at the camps, couldn't believe what they saw
alliances were founded to enforce the international law
how many times have you thought about the future?
and how many times have you thought about this torture?
one minute silence won't change a fuckin' thing
but it helps to remember all the sorely suffering

today they march again, disclaiming their own history
no esteem for any life and for humans dignity
they are blinding with false ideals and absurd views
too ignorant to accept the obvious truth
they are rambling imperiously through the night
so hear my words to set a sign:
GO ON, STAND UP and FIGHT!
