Track Name: Look Up to the Ground (Intro)
"God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off."
Track Name: A Rat´s City
Why are we still the
Small pawns in this game?
I thought we just want
(I thought we just want)
To get rid of this shame?
Filth that we live in
We are to blame for!
We are to blame for!

All these lights led the way to the wrong place. we've been
Searching for something else, but not this gassed old place.

We've been gasping for fresh air!
But down here we can't breathe!
We ignore every red light!
And with them every warning!

We are to blind to see this became a rat's city.
Track Name: Golden Rust
The alpha wolf is creeping in circles
And the pack is waiting for mortals.
I was banned to witness this disaster
My mind is what you can't destroy!

Screaming for help and all they do is starring at each other.
We obeyed long enough. We've been outcast to long.
All we did was taking cover.
All the things you told
made us believe black would turn to gold!

This wine is poisoned and this book is turning to dust!
The gold you're wearing is nothing more than rust!

I decided to be not faithless
but I just can believe what is real.
I decided to see what you see
but you are blind that is what I see.

Greater as a king and feeding the flesh of a ghost.
Air can't fill our stomachs.
Men being one with concrete.
See the world in panic you enjoy the most.
But still the beloved father.

I decided to be not faithless
but I just can believe what is real.
I decided to see what you see
but you are blind that is what I see.

See the world in panic you enjoy the most.

But still the beloved father.

I decided to be not faithless
but I just can believe what is real.
I decided to see what you see
but you are blind that is what I see.
Track Name: Stick Tight to Trouble
I'm still awake,
I have to get this week out of my mind.
Friday night again a filthy place to find.
Fuck!

Just for god´s sake we let this building break.
When we're done here. there's nothing left of us.
Can we kick it? Yes we can!
I'm fucking pissed again.
I don't behave like a role model.
Wrong time wrong place,
I always stick tight to trouble.

You got the wrong guy,
Man it's not my fault that you have the wrong opinion.
I don't behave like a role model.
Wrong time wrong place,
I always stick tight to trouble.
I'm not the guy that you want me to be,
I am a dick head that's what you think about me.
I don't give a fuck about making friends.
Why are you talking about me?
My family behind me in the end.
I don't give a fuck about making friends.
Why are you talking about me in the end?

Always remember this:

I´m doing well.
Stick tight to trouble!
That's what I always do.
Stick tight to trouble!
That's what I do right now.
And I am here that you have something to tell!
And if it's shit that you are talking about
I am doing well!
Stick tight to trouble!
That's what I always did!
Stick tight to trouble!
I don't give a shit.
And I am here that you have something to tell!
and if it's shit that you are talking about
I am doing well.

And i through that bottle.
And it hit his face.
Someone please help this poor lad!
Someone make some space.
Oh my god, what have I done?
Oh my god, what have i become?
Someone please help this poor lad!
Someone make some space.
Track Name: Dead End Blues
I am a man who doesn't trust his luck.
Since 7th grade when my father past away, I stood at the same spot.
Everything rushes past me! No clue of what to do and how to go on.
“I feel great! I feel great!”
Thats what I always said.
But inside I'm dead.
I tried to be the class clown. I'm always the man for the jokes.
But nothing is funny at all!
I lost a part of me and the idol who should teach me how to live my life.
There is no one left that I can look up to.
I can't believe that you left your wife with two little ones!
She is trapped in a dead end and she can't go back!

She tries hard not to quit! The same as I!
If she says it's all right it's a lie! In the night I always hear her cry!
So many sleepless nights and so many days of pain. For her I pretend to be the same!
I have to take care now of what you have build up, but I can't be that strong so I try hard not to tear it down!
I can't leave them like you. I won't leave them alone! I have to care for them!
Why do you leave me alone?

I am so empty inside and no one knows that I can't take it any more.
“I feel great! I feel great!”
Another bottle is empty and I can go to sleep. Dear god, if I won't wake up, please have an eye on my sheep! I'm not strong enough to do this alone.

Mom has found a new love and my brother is doing well in school.
Seems like they have found there ways! Seems like everything is cool!
So this seems to be my dead end! I don't have no longer to pretend!

A few drinks would help me to be brave and climb the fence of the bridge were you jumped out of misery!
Wind is whipping my face. And water underneath is screaming for me. I never felt so much fire.
Earth I'll be concerted with you!
Track Name: Vibes
Grey vibes carry our future,
Just think about coloured now.
Grey vibes carry our future,
Think about what coloures now.

Some have lost their track,
But always be remembered.
A tear drop for each of them,
Keep a smile for those surrendered.

When we get together, for a moment I feel peace
and I can forget the black hole that's absorbing us.

This is for my fucking people!
This is for those who cover my back!
This is for my fucking people!
For those who bleed my blood!

Time goes by and hearts grow stronger,
People lose their sights and words last longer.
Braveness is what they can't conquer,
Life means more when we are together.

Time goes by and hearts grow stronger,
People lose their sights and words last longer.
Braveness is what they can't conquer,
Choking on our pride, we stay forever.

Grey vibes carry our future,
Just think about coloured now.
Grey vibes carry our future,
Think about what coloures now.

Some have lost their track,
But always be remembered.
A tear drop for each of them,
Keep a smile for those surrendered.

When we get together, for a moment I feel peace
and I can forget the black hole that is absorbing us and I sing:

When we get together I, for a moment I feel peace
and I can escape the hole that is absorbing us.


We will never fit in the frame you want us to fit in!
We will never fit in the frame you want us to fit in!
You won´t change us!

Time goes by and hearts grow stronger,
People lose their sights and words last longer.
Braveness is what they can't conquer,
Life means more when we are together.

Time goes by and hearts grow stronger,
People lose their sights and words last longer.
Braveness is what they can't conquer,
Choking on our pride, we stay forever.

Life means more when we're together.
Chocking on our pride, we stay for ever.
