Track Name: Anvery - Through Tired Eyes
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

Track Name: Long Way Down - At Wit's End
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...
Track Name: Sweet Empire - Dirt
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…

Track Name: De Aanslag - Pastoor
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.
Track Name: New Pokerface - Homecoming
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
Track Name: Face Tomorrow - Enlighten Me
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.
Track Name: Sparky's Revenge - Still The Same
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)
Track Name: Antillectual - Some of My Best Friends Are Meat Eaters
"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
Track Name: Drunktank - Mother Russia
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
Track Name: All On Black - Stay Away
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
Track Name: Break Character - Something To Start
“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
Track Name: Midnight Menace - The Static State
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
Track Name: Sidewalk - Chuck Norris
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
Track Name: Sparrow Falls - Dogdays & Dusk
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!
