Rising To The Bait Missing the clock ticking five past twelve We're placed in line like books on a shelf Nothing seems true, all based on lies Hiding behind false alibis Look away is what we do best Ignoring the signs You're better off if you can't read So you don’t know what’s between the lines All we do is wait Turn when it's all too late All we do is wait Rising to the bait Look at it like a wonderbra Fake the truth and bend the law The only ones that give a damn Get locked away, what a scam Promises falling down the stairs Politics just tricks Rather believe in Peter Pan Than another rich lying black suited man All we do is wait Turn when it's all too late All we do is wait Rising to the bait But I'm not ready to give in Or look away I'm not ready to make nice Not today, not ever Keep fighting for the better All we should do All we should do is not wait And turn when it's all too late All we should do is not wait We're rising to the bait

Shampoo Or Gasoline Bouncing like puppets Who's pulling your strings? What once was independant Is floating down main stream Shining like white pearls All tied to a chain Fit in a row and section It’s the rules of their game Selling out for a glimpse of fame I don't wanna be how you want me Fitting in your perfect scheme The question is a sense of meaning Is it shampoo or gasoline Burn it down or wash it clean Call it bad manners A rage against the mold Prediction still is rising And hard to hold Walk it like you talk it Beyond the level of your heart Never turn or back down This ain't just a fancy show Shivering down your backbone I don't wanna be how you want me Fitting in your perfect scheme The question is a sense of meaning Is it shampoo or gasoline Burn it down or wash it clean Shampoo or gasoline Burn me down or wash me clean I don't wanna be how you want me Fitting in your perfect scheme The question is a sense of meaning Is it shampoo or gasoline Burn it down or wash it clean Shampoo or gasoline Burn me down or wash me clean

On Top Of The Moon We all know it Not many years from today We might just blow it and say: ’Shit happens, look at us now’ A ticking timebomb Nobody ever hears Hop on a spaceship I don't wanna miss this blasting On top of the moon Looking down Watching the whole world falling apart On top of the moon What a view I'll tweet a selfie The armageddon and me Excited about the 'likes' for posting Now who’s the enemy? On top of the moon Looking down Watching the whole world falling apart On top of the moon What a view On top of the moon Hear the big bang Of the ending coming near On top of the moon Sad but true „If you don't stand for something You'll fall for anything“ On top of the moon Looking down Watching the whole world falling apart On top of the moon What a view On top of the moon Hear the big band Of the ending coming near On top of the moon Sad but true

Blind (Everything Is Fine) Dangling on a tree While some smart ass cuts it down I wonder why Wearing a green shirt With a peace sign and birds Giving a high five To a carefree life On a west bound flight I wish I would't mind And don't care to find Truth within the lies I wish I was naive So I can still believe Everything is fine Pretending I'm a child With a hunger gone wild like fire Damn the rules Served with wings and fries No I don't wanna hear What I already know I wish I would't mind And don't care to find Truth within the lies I wish I was naive So I can still believe Everything is fine Rather play dumb Become numb or laid so low, zero I wish I would't mind And don't care to find Truth within the lies I wish I was naive So I can still believe Everything is fine As I go blind

Where Is Robin Hood? What ever happens to this place There's a lifetime warranty And a bonus, if you pay the fees This ain't like what momma told me When I was just a kid Standing barefoot in deep shit Walls come tumbling Is this it? But I won't wail No, I just keep on striking back for good Solutions paid with bits and coins As if it ever could Where is Robin Hood? Another hundred years from now We’ll all been gone by then So why worry, amen Living individually but posing just the same In a game way on ego parade Dueling against your own shade But I won't wail No, I just keep on striking back for good Solutions paid with bits and coins As if it ever could Tell me where is Robin Hood? Hey man, where is Robin Hood? But I won't wail No, I just keep on striking back for good Solutions paid with bits and coins As if it ever could But I won't wail No, I just keep on striking back for good Solutions paid with bits and coins As if it ever could Tell me where is Robin Hood?

In A Bucket With A Hole The sky above is glowing But it ain't real moonlight Neon signs are all that shine from you A song's buzzing in my head My mouth won't sing it out I rather buy a blade and cut this world in half But I'm not tired of this carrying Got my hopes all tied to my back with a rope I'm not angry at you laughing When you watch me crying these tears of gold In a bucket with a hole Gonna build us a rocket Peek at the earth from above Wave goodbye and dive into the night But I'm not tired of this carrying Got my hopes all tied to my back with a rope I'm not angry at you laughing When you watch me crying these tears of gold In a bucket with a hole Spirit's gonna fade How about you? Are you still drowning In a bucket with a hole?

Shout It Out 04:15
Shout It Out Did something crack your faith lately Tired of fighting for change Life has its way of teasing Extending its own rage A generation overcome With them digital roots True shit is a long way walking With blisters from your boots Shout it out If you want 'em to hear ya Shout out loud It starts with one, then ends in a crowd Pile up money that you can't eat Cutting rich from the poor A scratch on a car, it won't bleed What a material whore Shout it out If you want 'em to hear ya Shout out loud It starts with one, then ends in a crowd Shout it out If you want 'em to hear ya Shout out loud It starts with one, then ends in a crowd Time is here and now and aching For the next level to come Talking 'bout a revolution Come on all, give it some Shout it out If you want 'em to hear ya Shout out loud It starts with one, then ends in a crowd Shout it out If you want 'em to hear ya Shout out loud It starts with one, then ends in a crowd

Tell Me Why 05:02
Tell Me Why Tell me, tell me, tell me why Don't the stars fall from the sky? Why do we all have different voices? And why does love just hurt somtimes? Tell me, tell me, tell me why Where do all the colours come from? Why can't we see things in the dark? Why does a fire start with a spark? Son, I don’t know all the answers But I sure live to try Your open heart will teach you All the lessons and the answers in your life Tell me, tell me, tell me why Tell me, tell me, tell me why Do we all have to die? Why is Santa not a woman? Why do we fall asleep at night? Tell me, tell me, tell me why Can't the sun shine all the time? Why is there hate, why is there war? Tell me, what is the killing good for? Boy, I don’t know all the answers But I sure live to try Your open heart will teach you All the lessons and the answers in your life Tell me, tell me, tell me why Hey Dad, tell me Why did they ban good music from the radio? Why are mom & you no superheroes? And who put the holes into the cheese? Son, I don’t know all the answers But I sure live to try Your open heart will teach you All the lessons and the answers in your life Tell me, tell me, tell me why Tell me, tell me, tell me why Tell me, tell me, tell me why

She Says She's American Silent water's deep Bright blue fades to black Freedom don’t come cheap On her runaway track Leaving all behind She can't go back anymore She says she's american Good looking but you can tell The way she rolls her eyes For a western paradise From a swiss point of view As narrow as its valleys Fencing minds and borders Hate keeps spreading Here's not enough space to stay So good luck on your getaway Just go away She says she's american Good looking but you can tell The way she rolls her eyes For a western paradise She's american Like the ones she's seen on screen Her face seems older She's only seventeen What a pity of who we are Melting wealth into golden bars Love thy next but only feed yourself with greed Let fear take in control Let fear take in control She says she's american Good looking but you can tell The way she rolls her eyes For a western paradise She's american Like the ones she's seen on screen Her face seems older She's only seventeen

Carried Away 04:25
Carried Away Away, carried away Away, carried away Sitting next to a slim bug called Mighty Steve Flying off our free miles on a loose leaf Smoking a packed bone in a wind sleeve Away, carried away Away, carried away Gliding over a drab concrete covered world Spitting down and watching my dribble swirl Away, carried away Away, carried away Away, carried away Fine for now No I won't touch down Till I'm outta town for new years eve No I won't turn around I'm nowhere bound with Steve

Leaving Scars Behind Pack in your arguments and fuck off Is this the best of who you are This world will never turn around you Not in any way go far Now we are only guests Who’ve lost respect And we should be ashamed We will be vanishing But leaving scars behind It's way too easy blaming nature Or a fish catching a fly Dare to move, ask your mirror Why do creatures have to die for your joy Now we are only guests Who’ve lost respect And we should be ashamed We will be vanishing But leaving scars behind It's a bleeding wound Scratch it up again and again And again and again and again

Like Zombies And Toys Most good people stay quiet Let the bad bring the noise Running down them numbers Anger soon destroys Thus we say nothing We care nothing We do nothing Save being dead like zombies and toys
