I’m turning in my bed and wide awake Waiting for a phone call that is overdue Past the tension that wore me out Past the worries that weighed me down These problems remain my own Through tired eyes we make amends With everything that is lost in this world to you So here I am, another day passed while I’m Waking, working, waiting, sleeping and repeat What more you’d think that they could ask of me? Ambitions on my shoulders They’re almost falling of Through tired eyes we make amends With everything that is lost in this world to you Just for now I’ll get my heart from the swamp it’s trudging through Let the warmth take me where the heart wants to be Where the heart wants to be Through tired eyes we make amends With everything that is lost in this world to you Through tired eyes

It’s useless. So many times we tried to set aside our differences and we’ll never make it work. So we’re trying it once again, but you just hold me off. Now we’re both at wit’s end. But you fail to understand that I do this for you my friend. And now we all turn our hope on you. Can you mend what is broken, to rectify this refuse? Don’t reject what is coming from the heart for just this once, or sever all our ties. You choose to wander on your own, but when you need us you’re on the phone expecting us to help you out and did we ever let you down? But it stops here. It has become clear that you are never going to give. You only take what’s in your reach, you’re a parasite a leech. Bring back what’s taken from me - I’ve given you more than enough my friend. Somehow I feel you’ll never comprehend. Don’t reject what is coming from the heart. Can you mend what is broken? Sever all our ties? Or can you mend what is broken? It’s broken...

Rows and rows of meat we’ll keep on buying We’re always so passive to make any change But I wish we would make a stand By rejecting the dirt we eat Mutilation Beyond recognition Hamburgers To fill the filthy mouths with We are all guilty- by messing with things we cannot mess with But with our rules of playing god- we just end up killing a lot ‘Cause we created a system that eventually kills all of us Release the viruses because we like our bacon so much And if you see through it – you cannot deny That it’s all so immoral but the reasons are covered with lies Drink blood Eat bone Baked corpse For ill souls Just drink blood And eat bone Feed the blind Into sick souls It’s a system that kills all of us Release the viruses because we like our bacon so fucking much And if you see through it – you cannot deny That it’s all so immoral but the reasons are covered with lies Rows and rows of meat we’ll keep on buying We always so passive to make any change But I wish we would make a stand By rejecting the dirt we eat (3x) By rejecting…

Van de nieuwe Harry Potter raak jij al in paniek. Je zit aan kleine jochies Maar homo’s vind je ziek Je leeft je hele leven Naar een of ander boek Vol met pratende slangen En een messias op een doek. Een oude man met beesten op een of ander boot Je verhaal is slap De spijker door die pols ja dat was de laatste noot Kruisigen die hap Genocide je zij vergeven Slik het niet als pap Het christelijke ras moet overleven De bijbel is een grap. Alleen een beetje bidden En je bent vergeven Maar aan je religie Blijft een luchtje kleven Dat enge boek van jou Spreekt van de ondergang Ik zal het je komen brengen Hou me in bedwang.

what is this about cleaning up without knowing, i can’t decide. what is this? i’ll be tumblin dice, i’m out of change but not out of keys, just waiting, we’ll be quite alright i’ll be home in a year i guess, my burning side will come now i’m wandering trough the clouds tonight, let’s leave here. will you go away with me? a better time a better place. will you go away with me? tonight, i’ll be gone this goes on another week or two, without sitting straight from the starting point without caring, not without a fight minus the hooks from the medicine, i’m shouting out for the odyssey without knowing, but i’ll be quite alright. i’ll be home in a year i guess, my burning side will come now i’m wandering trough the clouds tonight, let’s leave here. will you go away with me? a better time a better place. will you go away with me? tonight, i’ll be gone i’ll sing this only to deny it what’s on the surface won’t provide waiting to make some sense just to be heard i’ll keep on sinking will you go away with me? a better time a better place. will you go away with me? tonight, i’ll be gone

Am I myself when we’re together? Or am I better-off alone? Maybe it’s time for me to end it. But know I will fail, cause I can never let this go. This is all I know. Is this what I need to share or is this what I need to bury? I’m undecided. Something tells me you can see where we should be. So enlighten me. There’s no beginning, there’s no ending and I have heard it all before. I’m sick and tired of pretending that it’s gonna work out, so I am breaking down this door. Just give me one more reason cause I need to know for sure. Pull me in now pull me in. Somehow I’ll be under your skin. Someday I’ll know. One day I will know for sure.

Last night I was thinking, what it all means to me Thoughts float through my head, but this is where I want to be These periods, will fade away If I have to believe them but it feels like I'm commiting myself more and more But when I look closer, they only come and go Disconnected from who they are, detached what I love most But when I look closer, they only come and go Open your eyes and be honest with yourself (you didn't belong here!) So please walk away cause I don't care (I never cared) Eventually lines will be drawn to seperate Please don't act, because you will fall through I'm getting tired of explaining all these situations You'll never get it anyway Doubtful times, making me sick, whether I know I'm right But enough truth is left, so I won't leave the abandoned ship I still get excited to see a show with my friends Would you miss it, but I don’t think you would But when I look closer, they only come and go Disconnected from who they are, detached what I love most But when I look closer, they only come and go Disconnected from who they are, detached what I love most Open your eyes and be honest with yourself (you didn't belong here!) So please walk away cause I don't care (I never cared)

"It's dead already" "As if you make a difference" "You don't know what you're missing" "It's in our nature" Inconsistency galore Bullfights nay, slaughtering OK? Double standards the norm Fur pelts nay, leather jackets OK? Let's get this done Take the next step, emancipate Beware of sliding scales and slippery slopes Pamela Anderson, Weird Al Yankovic, Hitler and Meatloaf can't be wrong Join the club, enter our sky box Moral crusaders Shout down to the plebs A call to morality, the always effective "It's in your own best interest" Somewhere halfway it's me Climbing the slope Together with the rest of us So far to go Join the club

Wind blows from the icy north across the frozen plains Towards the southern deserts and the borderlines From the east, to the west, stretching almost everlasting Bering Straight, Siberia, on to the Finnish pines Unity, solidarity, a never-ending loyalty Values of a country which all its people are proudly standing for Never conquered, never losing a war Never been beaten before Oh mother Russia Can you hear your sons and daughters laughing Dancing round the Kremlin on the Red Square in the sun Unaware of all the bad things in the world Without a care, for they thought that the new age had begun But that was then, and this is now, the times they are a changin' The days of Mikhail Gorbatsjov have all been left behind An iron fist, neo-communist, all opponents tagged and listed Silencing the ones that have a different frame of mind Poetins rule, it’s the Stalin-school, terror is its biggest tool Kids don’t get detention, they get expelled for good, and we all know Yet we turn away, simply watching the show Greek tragedy in the snow Oh mother Russia Can you hear your sons and daughters crying Lying in a filthy Moscow gutter in the snow All aware, their mother has abandoned them She does not care, forgetting all the golden days of old Oh mother Russia Can you see your sons and daughters dying Withering away, cause you left them all alone When oh when, will you take good care of them Maybe then, you'll break your heart of stone

There is pain for you to suffer These are hard times i know So insane for you to suffer Slithering words won't heal These broken bones Stay away from me Even though you're tough I bet I'm not the first one To say this Either you are wrong or Stay away from here Even though you're tough I bet I'm not the first one to sway Did you come for an answer Your heart so uptight Did you live to be lied to a million times Carry your thoughts another mile Stay away from here Even though you're tough I bet I'm not the first one To say this Either you are wrong or Stay away from me Even though you're tough I bet I'm not the first one to sway You are wrong or we are all You are wrong or we are all insane

“Are you still working at that diner?” Chutes and ladders, snap and fall “Your dreams have drifted...” but hey, my customers stay And you know, I shouldn't even be here at all... Mom is calling, kids keep asking My world falling apart This is my, my certainty / I am poor and I'm beaten I've got a somewhere to start Well, what can you offer me then besides your high hopes and your benefits? Do you think that they will pay for the four of us? Pay for their education, pay for the world to come? I didn't think so, well, I'll see you, say hi to your mom... Well, what can you offer me then? Big mouth, small heart, eyes drifting away? My dreams may have drifted, but my customers stay, and you know, I shouldn't even be here at all My kids are starving, my mom has died My world's falling apart If this is my certainty/ I'm poor and and I'm beaten I beg you Give me somewhere to start

Oooh come in feel free, tune in your seat is warm Celebrate real life behind locked doors Witnessed dates and famous lies No charge, We’ll be messing you up for It’s an affliction raised by commercials Living life with a tv-guide restriction So let the act control you as long as you feel fine a place where everybody runs in circles So empty and confused wired to a static line dark clouds gathering above us Latest news from so called friends Larry twitters on the toilet having friction we’ve achieved nothing yet, except feeding this addiction Online again, we’ve locked ourselves in in a world where everything is fiction We’re born astray so lost in fear of reality, magnetic energy Walking the line, I think we have an emergency Have an emergency We’re born astray, emergency visit a place where we can run in circles We’re hooked on standing by, discourage the decline cut the cord, cast the line We’re born astray so lost in fear of reality, magnetic energy Walking the line, I think we have an emergency Have an emergency So let the act control you as long as you feel fine a place where everybody runs in circles So empty and confused wired to a static line dark clouds gathering above us

Some say he is our saviour Some say he is not from this world But he reads the bible And everything is told Watch out for a roundhouse on your mouth Watch out when he kicks and shouts Cause Chuck Norris is gonna kick your ass With his bare hands he is just too fast No time to get away He will leave you in despair

Conciliation. Here I’m crawling through the dust Watch this broken shape, but a glimpse of once to my dismay End this lunacy so stark, all tremblin’ like my hands… Sickening stench may disband. But does the body drift by? So call it back into the shade or have you grown weary? And did she visit you again – Luxuria? The taste of salt, the smell of drought and sweet, rotten fruit I feel like screaming, my voice has left me… Pleading remission wincing bleary eyed. Hollering insanely strained, something I might not regain So call it back into the shade or have you grown weary? And did she visit you again – Gloria? The taste of salt, the smell of drought and sweet, rotten fruit I feel like screaming - my voice has left me… The marks upon the wheel -The rasping sound of thirst -The rattlesnake flicks its tongue. Shall I soon yield? Don’t let me yield. The marks upon the wheel - The rasping sound of thirst Phenomenal feasting, so freely. Pay heed, pay heed!
