Track Name: Backtracking
I hear the sound of marching feet
And the rants that reverberate on my TV
There's a party going on, 'cause the bastards gone
But I'm left staring vacantly
Amongst all this apathy
So little, so late, yet so happy
Who will shepherd all these sheep?
I shake my head in disbelief

No thank you, I'm already full!
You served me more than I could chew
Or spit or swallow or fucking puke!
I'm already full!

But still I hear those marching feet,
But now they're patrolling my street
There's a party going on, but it seems to me
That we haven't been invited
Thanks to all this apathy
We can't turn back 'cause it's too late
You've gotta walk the path you pave that's why,
Me, yeah I'm backtracking...
Track Name: It's Coming Soon
Dry your eyes, stop staring
At the pretty, pretty pictures on your walls
Don't forget that nobody can tell you
Who your supposed to be
The day will come
When we start thinking autonomously
And on that day
There will be no more false idols on walls

It's coming soon!
It's coming soon!
Track Name: Crash & Burn
My heart thumps; anxiously in my chest
Constantly; like a machine gun without rest
All it took; was just a single glimpse
Moratorium; the thumping ceases to persist

So I tip the glass... wish I could swallow it whole
My courage left... me a long time ago
I take another glance... is it time to make my move?
No not quiet yet... 'cause my beers still half full!

Well here I go again...
I crash and burn and then...
I crash again!

A new horizon; instantly appears
Bringing with it; brand new hopes and ancient fears
I'm frozen stiff; detached from reality
I can't think straight; I'm shaking with anxiety

So I tip the glass... this glass must have a hole
I need some more... to fix my battered and bruised ego
Just one more glance... is it time to make my move?
No not quiet yet... 'cause my new beers still full!

Well here I go again...
I crash and burn and then...
I crash again!

I guess I'll never learn
I guess I'll never learn
I guess I'll never learn
I guess I'll never learn...

Well here I go again...
I crash and burn and then...
I crash again!
Track Name: Washed Up
Seems we pulled a wrong turn
The cops signal pull over
And the next thing I know, all I see
are red and blue lights flashing...
I just wanna go to bed
Sober up, straighten out my head
I'm not driving, I don't care
I just wanna get out of here

I'm washed up; no secret
One of these days I'm gonna kick it
'Cause I'm fucked up
What makes you think your any better than me?

Another night, another town
Another bar, another frown
A strange feeling comes over me
Disco-types are all I see
Gotta drink the night away
Can not stand another day
Bit-part-actors make me sick
I'm stuck in a bad B-movie

I'm washed up; no secret
One of these days I'm gonna kick it
'Cause I'm fucked up
What makes you think your any better than me?

You go out and never frown
You never puke, you never drown
In your trendy 8 euro drinks
At home your puking in your sink
You wish you had money to spare
To put a bullet in your head
You can't take the show no more
I'm washed up, your as good as gone!

I'm washed up; no secret
One of these days I'm gonna kick it
'Cause I'm fucked up
What makes you think your any better than me?
Track Name: False Hopes
When the questions don't make no sense
And you've just spent your last few cents
And all the answers confuse you more and more
That's when your...
Decency's long expired
I never got what I desired
Well it's a cold hard world out there tonight
And there's no salvation in sight...

Another false hope, another night...

A pack of smokes, a bottle of beer
The only company that holds me dear
Wasting away what have I become?
Am I a...
Society's short-comings
Are all that keep me going
Waiting for some revelation tonight
But there's no revelation in sight...

Another false hope, another night...

When the questions don't make no sense
And you've just spent your last few cents
And all the answers confuse you more and more
That's when your...
Decency's long expired
I never got what I desired
It's a cold hard world out there tonight
And there's no salvation in sight...

Another false hope, another night...

Now I'm dripping blood in shark infested water
I feel 'em coming...
But I don't care!
There's nothing...
There's nothing to fear!
Track Name: Media Perfection
Gotta be beautiful, gotta look like
Those people on TV
To have it their way,
We'll go through everything

'Cause hair cuts are simply not enough
Where would you be without clothes and makeup?
Gotta reach media perfection
'Cause nowadays, being yourself just isn't enough!

But why stop there
When there's so many fun things you could do?
Face-lifts, implants or
Liposuctions to name a few

It seems we all don't make the grade.
Too fat, too ugly, too underpaid!
Gotta spend all our money on beauty creams
And douse ourselves with them, before we go to sleep

And maybe... One day...
We'll all wake up beautiful!!!!
I don't think so...
Track Name: Time & Riffs To Spare
Times were tough and I crumbled
Tides were ruff and I fumbled
Push came to shove and I
Pushed back so hard it tore us both apart...

Should have been so beautiful with you...
Could have been so beautiful with you...
Should have been so beautiful with you...
Could have been, should have been
but it wasn't and that's the truth!

So let the court assemble
And judge this here fool
But how to punish someone
Who just lost the best thing that they ever had?

Should have been so beautiful with you...
Could have been so beautiful with you...
Should have been so beautiful with you...
Could have been, should have been
but it wasn't and that's the truth!
Track Name: Rosebud
Those who think they know it all
Might be the very last to fall
But when it happens, as it will
They'll never get back up the hill
Once you've crushed everyone in your path
Who will be the last to laugh?
It's lonely being number one
Especially when you die alone!

You have it all, you still want more
Pity that the world only has so much it can give you
You have it all, you still want more
Nothing lasts forever, and from the top you can only fall!

We cling to our civilisation with a dead man's grip
As if this where the only way to live!
Other greats have come before
To no surprise, they all did fall
Economists aim for constant growth
But one thing even, children know
Only death, follows growth
And you scream rosebud as you fall!


You have it all, you still want more
Pity that the world only has so much it can give you
You have it all, you still want more
Nothing lasts forever, and from the top you can only fall!

You have it all, you still want more
Pity that the world only has so much it can give you
You have it all, you still want more
Nothing lasts forever, and from the top you can only fall!
Track Name: Sailing On
A fresh breeze...
A new day...
And the promise...
Of foreign shores...
Ready the sails...
All aboard!
Raise the anchors...

And I know I should fight it,
The silence makes me violent
All in all, seems all I gotta lose,
Are the chains holding me down
And as the world keeps turning,
Time passes, we keep on learning
All in all it seems all gotta do...
Is sail on without you

Now I'm struggling...
To stay on course...
And I'm hoping...
I made the right choice...
Memories...
Of days gone passed...
Contemplating...
Turning back!

And I know I should fight it,
The silence makes me violent
All in all, seems all I gotta lose,
Are the chains holding me down
And as the world keeps turning,
Time passes, we keep on learning
All in all it seems all gotta do...
Is sail on without you

I'm sailing on without you...
Track Name: Shattering The Heliocentic World View
My sun's gone supernova
Despair is taking over me!
And it seems...
This world is getting colder
I cannot bear this tragedy
consuming everything around me...

My heliocentric world's been shattered
Nothings ever gonna work for me!
My heliocentric world's been shattered
Nothings ever gonna work for me!

My sun's gone supernova
Despair is taking over me!
And it seems...
This world is getting colder
I cannot bear this tragedy
consuming everything around...
That's right, I feel abandoned!
So many questions, left unanswered;
Stranded on this island earth
How's anything supposed to work for me?
My sun's gone supernova
Despair is taking over me!

My sun's gone supernova
Despair is taking over me!
Track Name: The Great Fall
I picked up the pieces, tried to rescue what remained
And cut my fingers on the shards of yesterday
Seems I'll be needing all the king's horses and men
Just one last desperate attempt to reassemble it!

I pick up the pieces and I'm bleeding yet again
Perhaps it's time to stop, but I cannot refrain
Temptation lures me, keeps me coming back for more
So easy to open, so hard to close that door!

You hurt me more than I could ever hurt you
Made me feel like I did not deserve you
Well I've done some soul searching and I have come to see
I did not deserve you and all the things you said
All the things you did
All your crazy shit
The time that you wasted...

I picked up the pieces, now I'm throwing them away...
Track Name: We Can Change Nothing But Ourselves
I see a world about to kill itself
A world full of misery
And violence, and silence
When it comes to speaking your mind
I see a world full of discontent
A world that seems hell-bent
On blowing itself off of the fucking map!

It's up to you
To make the world a better place to live in
It's up to you
To do the things you told me, you want to do
It's up to you to change...
It's up to you and me!

I see a species and it's extinction
A species bread on hate
And violence, and silence
A species bread to follow...
I see a species and it's certain death
A slow and painful death
Like cancer; rotting...
From the inside out...

It's up to you
To make the world a better place to live in
It's up to you
To do the things you told me, you want to do
It's up to you to change...
It's up to you and me!
Track Name: ...And Flies Will Be Walking On Their Eyes
Aggressive, no-limits, relentless pursuit
War crimes, killing, battery and assault
Not sent to capture or compromise
Sent to return, packing heads on dry-ice

When the gloves come off, where will the buck stop?
Will the buck stop? When the gloves come off?
When the gloves come off?
When the gloves come off, where will the buck stop?
Will the buck stop?
Will they wash their hands with black water?
Will they clean their hands of black water?

Corporate animism, finally run amok
17 dead and no one gives a fuck!
'Cause the west-fall-act is gonna cover their back
Case closed, court adjourned and that's a fact!

When the gloves come off, where will the buck stop?
Will the buck stop? When the gloves come off?
When the gloves come off?
When the gloves come off, where will the buck stop?
Will the buck stop?
Will they wash their hands with black water?
Will they clean their hands of black water?
