Track Name: Yet, What Do We Accomplish?
Stuck in past
Stuck in agony
Stuck in daily grind
«it'll never happen to me»
I heard they call this progression
Can't afford to let it go

A life worth living
Worth pursuing
A life worth fighting for?

Count the hours
Count the days
People starve 'cos they know
Nothing else
And crumble through the daily routine
To keep this nation together

A life worth saving
Worth nothing
A life worth dying for?

It's everywhere except in our hearts
It's nowhere except in our hearts
Track Name: If I Settle For The Rats, But Not For The Race
Means so much
The conviction in your eyes
So much
Are there any words of your own?
What's enough
If we still wave just one flag
If we still search for just one truth?

How liberal if i don't agree?

If a settle for chaos
If i settle for rats
If i settle for uncontrolled...

This world is a bigger place than your brain
Track Name: Never Solutions
We may all be fucked up
But somehow you seem to grasp on it and enjoy
Never solutions, just problems
And the whole world keeps turning
The wrong way around

How sad can it be?
A bottle of booze and a razor blade
Sponsored by society
And it's alway someone else who keeps
Pouring the problems on you

That glance tells everything
You must know mw better than i do myself
What can i do but smile
Do you think that you're any worse
Than the rest of us...

Are you the cause or the remedy
Do you just keep on wasting your days
If there's nothing to believe in
Why wear such a sad face?
The comfort of this world as a burden
And the burden as a comfort
Track Name: If The Price Is Right
Ain't this enough
You still want more?
Ain't this enough
You still want more?
Save it for yourself
Tear it off the ground
Ain't this enough
You still want more?
Will it ever be enough for the generations to come
Built to accelerate faster than ever before?

If the price is right we'll buy anything
We'll fuck with the machine, fuck till we bleed
If the price is right we'll believe anythig
Turn our heads, ignore what we see

What's that you need
That you don't already have?
What's that you need
That you don't already have?
More slaves?
More security?
What's that you need
What could you possibly need?
Will it ever be enough for the generations to come
With ever growing hunger for material goods..?

But only if the price is right!!!
Track Name: Obey Your Thirst
Vote with your wallet
See, democracy does work
Everything's equally valuable
Every bill and every coin?
Consumer as the master
Feel the delusion of power
Supply and demand
Releases us from responsibility

Free to choose between
The worst and the worst
Deny it all
Or obey your thirst!

Blindfolded we follow sold images
Each smell more and more attractive
Take a look around you
Do you have the freedom to choose
Who's harvesting profits
And who's about to lose..?
All this noise surrounding us
Paid commercials
To confuse our discrimination
And suppress our screams
Shut the fuck up — we live in democracy
Track Name: Destroy Everything, Please
Keep warm, burn the rich
No compromise in defense of our dignity
Fuck the police, fuck the state
Until all free we're all incomplete

For you
To die for
(to sing along)

Anarchy, peace and equality
Earth liberation through vegans evolution
We're the crew that's built to last
True till the next trend united we stand...

Destroy the machines
What are you left with?
Destroy everything
What are you left with?
Track Name: Turha Valittaa Pienistä
Onko valinta sun itses
Annatko kaikkes
Tunnetko tarpeellisuutta
Kun silmäs avaat
Välitätkö siitä mitä teet
Luopuisitko mistään nyt?

Mistä luopuisit nyt?

Löydätkö muuta
Kuin oman kaipuus
Kestääkö tavoitteet
Vain hetken tulevaa
Säilyykö arvokkuus
Kun itses kohtaat?

Kohtaatko itses nyt?

Vai turhaanko toivot
Näinkö jatkat?
Jatkat vaikket uskoiskaan
Näin on aina ollut
Miten muuten voisi ollakkaan?

Edessä uhkaava menneisyys
Ja kaikki mitä itseltä puuttuu...

Halvalla lähtee
Kun ei muutakaan ole
Toivossa on hyvä elää
Kun ei muutakaan ole
Track Name: I've Got A Reason To Live
Too many skeletons in the closet
So many things so hypocrite
Contradictions lead in cynicism
With the things we've done we've cut off our tongue

Can we discover something more
When we put out our blue eyes
What do we reach by groaning
The pain of our bleeding eyes?
Boring minds with boring lives
Is that our goal?
Meaning fades away
Did it even exist?

Every beautiful thing is alway so naive
But i choose to be naive instead of dead
Save the planet by killing yourself
But i've got a reason to live!!!
Track Name: Crusade For Power
It's a drive for power

You're just a jerk-off with a badge
And a fetish for suits and ties
Yeah you know it better
But you're not bearing my cross

Your words — they tangle
Your words — they're indirect

Your crusade for power...

Your essence — just manners
Your essence — just manners and dogms

Track Name: Not Enough Bodybags
It's not «good morning»
I heard they dropped another bomb
It's not «good day»
The hate is al around in me
How can you say
That everything's gonna be ok
It's not what you would expect
Just pray for one silent moment

This world is in the hands of assholes
Don't even ask where i belong
If it's consciousness that separates us
What is it that we lack the most?

Can't trust what you see
The reasons they feed
What the fuck?!!

The treat that once was has turned upside down
Can't you fucking see what we have left behind?!
Billion hungry mouths, kids without hope
It's like a war inside my head about to explode
Not enough bodybags
Track Name: Part III - Let Go
Inside there's a scared little boy
Collapsing in the corners of our past
Compassioned, but torn apart
How far back must we bear this guilt?

False promises and high hopes
Brave foundationed with a withered soul
Are we supposed to believe you?
Who taught the parents to neglect their children
How can the parents neglect themselves
How far back can you extend your guilt..?

But the furrows of defeat
Tell another story
Are we supposed to believe you?

Built by people who hate their jobs
Advertised by morons who don't give a fuck
Every day we fall into mediocrity
Like all good soldiers do
Won't swallow anymore
The spineless words of this corrupted, twisted, sick fucking age
Let got the trust you once had to swallow
Let go the fear
Let go the lies...

Track Name: Proud To Be Blue-eyed
The moral majority may call me rejected
But i'm just glad to reject the boredom
Call me a kid, but i still believe
We could be proud without putting eachother down

It's a drea, but a good one to work towards

And maybe someday in every corner of this rotten plave
Everyone will have their share
Grandparents get to tell their tales
We could be who we are without fear...

Or is this all we have left
To fight for freedom and justice?

Punk rock saved my life, but it won't save the world
We can fight the indifference
But everything else is out of our control
I can't believe this is all we have to give
Maybe you do
What else can i say
What else could i do?
Fuck you this is our world too
Fuck you this is our world too
What else can i say
What else should i do but follow my heart?..
Track Name: Don't Blame Me
I met a strange officer
He gave me shelter for the night
And even brought me some food
But he was really angry
For what i can only guess
Couldn't really understand his problems

Don't blame me
If your world in crumbling down
(found ourselves making enemies
Faster than we could count)
If i'm only what you want to see in me
How could we communicate?

As kids we used to throw
Plastic soldiers with rocks
Slay dragons with a throw of a dice
It's exactly how it looks to me
But obedience doesn't make you innocent
Don't say you were just taking orders...

You can make a bomb
But can you bake a cake
If you're only what they want to see in you
How could we ever communicate?
Could we communicate?

Track Name: Ambition To Smile
I'm not gonna wallow in this shit
All my life
I'd like to leave something else
Than hate behind

We got so much to learn

No questions, no explanations
Sometimes it's crystal clear
But impossible to explain
No pressure, no expectations
Living is the only thing worth anything...

The suffering will never end
This world will never be finished
The days go by and we're to believe
That there's something to work towards
Like a fool standing in the river
Dying in thirst
Like this place could be
Any better than we are ourselves
Like we could make this place any better
Than what we believe
Track Name: Juggernaut
Less air to breathe
More concrete to carve our hopes onto
Bigger and bigger
To show the world our pride
Less trees
Less anything with an own will

This culture breathes poison
This city only knows how to grow

Bigger and bigger
That's what we deserve
For the time keeps ticking
And we have only one purpose to serve
The void between our heartbeats
It has to be filled
What better place than here and now
Wrap it up and leave it choking...

More concrete to carve our hopes onto
More rope to hang ourselves with
It's us the architects
Tomorrow we'll be wiser
Tomorrow with a bigger capacity
Wrap this planet up and leave it dying...
We'll build a bomb that's big enough
To bring the future here at last
Track Name: Let's Positive
Did the boredom catch you
Can it be fixed
Or is it just an escape
Our only way to communicate?
A song of broken hearted
Life's just a game
Sore thoat and ringing ears

Anger barely covers the pain

Depression hits you
Could you let it go
When it hits you
Would you let it go?
A dance of broken hearted
It's broken but at least
I try to find my way out

(a way out) of this broken land

To the last burning ache of hope
My anger won't sustain the pain
To the last burning ache of hope
