the anger starts when i look in the mirror i see the mask i've been wearing for so long i guess i thought i would need protection i will push to find a solution we could live a life of cowardice but we could, we could try to live the dream no need to be scared by the messy world around

oh my! what's the meaning of trying to stay afloat? don't get me wrong, i don't need make believes (tough, tough, tough decisions) to pave a way that's nothing without tough choices (tough, but real and close) hey you! what're you doing? keeping on closing your senses did you ever get a glimpse of something (tough, tough, tough decisions) beyond that terrible movie we're all fed with? (tough, but real and close) nobody's drama (stranger!) random scary events (spectator!) but do you feel involved when (am i…) when you're hurting someone? (… doing things that count?) the way you think you love the words you use all day check what you do for money politics through your veins got to break the flow and start to feel what's close and real if we all try to be ourselves and forget all the acting quit telling me about your duties (tough, tough, tough decisions) then we'll stop to turn each other into losers (tough, but real and close) nobody's drama (stranger!) random scary events (spectator!) but do you feel involved when (am i…) when you're hurting someone? (… doing things that count?) the way you think you love the words you use all day check what you do for money politics through your veins what's wrong with myself? how can i touch what's in my hands? why do i keep on waiting for sad stories written by some magic hand? time to feel beyond what's left, little coward it's time to live your life better than this the sound, the touch, the smell, all that matters you lost the things that make it worth it don't blame others, you're the one, the only one

Girls 01:44
i haven't seen you in a while touring from a city to another one so many punk shows, so many art shows i look around and i don't see you you shouldn't wait for a sign just take the space, don't play their game please don't hide let's give a voice to each other you shouldn't wait for a sign just take the space, don't play their game

let me get this straight i don't get what time is all about when some say that it's efficient to be really bored and others that you'd better forget yourself in a thousand things no one gives a shit about drawing pictures, learning some stuff making new friends, yelling around i don't feel okay running after something every single day, overheating, doing nothing i will never end up making really real what i always postpone i know it all, everything that makes a little sense goes away from me having sex, singing a song writing stories, forgetting time time seems to be what you say it is, whatever does time even exist? going fast, going slow, yeah… whatever does time even exist? i don't care to go nowhere if it's with you and i won't care about time, i swear how could i care about something i something i don't get? doing nothing, being busy what's good for me, i'll never get it
5.
dead calm in my head, jokes and parties won't help give me something real, scream out words that i don't get searching for a sparkle from someone out there let's start a fire and dance on our dead minds 'cause i am so tired of all the thoughts pulling me down destroy my world so i can finally reach you tears on tv and cops in the streets won't wake me up i spent too much time in my own cage, is it just like yours? i try not to think, i need to forget my ways let's start a fire and unlearn what we've been taught 'cause i am so tired of all the thoughts pulling me down destroy my world so i can finally reach you truth is probably a pile of nonsense who wants to embrace the beauty of it all? 'cause i am so tired of all the thoughts pulling me down destroy my world so i can finally reach you it's easy to pretend, so easy to pretend i could act like i just don't care it's easy to pretend, but i know where it leads i've no time to, no time to fool you or anyone else it's my time to, my time to choose between shit and nonsense no time to, no time to fool you or anyone else it's my time to, my time to choose between shit and nonsense
6.
i don't want to fade into the background when i walk the street just because you think i'm your fucking toy you say i have a nice ass, you want to fuck me, just go fuck yourself just because you think i'm your fucking toy one-track minded shadows all around staring at me like some sweet sweet candy lazy brainless dicks on the street who'd better swallow their pride and start to think i don't want to fade into the background when i walk the street just because you think i'm your fucking toy you say i have a nice ass, you want to fuck me, just go fuck yourself just because you think i'm your fucking toy if we're all products in a supermarket then i'm a knife, not a plastic crap if little babies want to play i'll be the wound that makes them cry the streets are not your playground and i'm not your fucking toy we won't live defeated, what's the matter with you? the streets are not your playground and i'm not your fucking toy we won't live defeated, what's the matter with you? if we're all products in a supermarket then i'm a knife, not a plastic crap if little babies want to play i'll be the wound that makes them cry i'm not your toy, i'm not your toy i'm not your fucking toy

i don't feel at home in my hometown anymore i need to get out of here they control our bodies and i can't control my tears i need to get out of here foggy mind under the rain walking on streets i know so well but i'm lost down here this life doesn't make sense and i need a ride home i don't feel at home in my hometown anymore i need to get out of here they control our bodies and i can't control my tears i need to get out of here foggy mind under the rain walking on streets i know so well but i'm lost down here this life doesn't make sense and i need a ride home
8.
back home again, with eyes in the back of my head who cares what's ahead? 'cause i don't give a damn now i'm walking backwards, everywhere i go i lost all kind of confidence, all kind of confidence where new shits are already old, there's no excitment, nothing no crazy heartbeats, just something regular and sad nothing scary, nothing thrilling, and boredom is stuck to my shoes no crazy heartbeats, just something regular and sad i know i'm wrong, but i can't change this vision i'm done with here, i wanna go back there where all things count, count to me, and excitment is everywhere crazy heartbeats make me dizzy, feelings going up and down where i'm scared or thrilled so easily, and boredom is just a bad memory crazy heartbeats make me dizzy, feelings going up and down going, going, going up and down

Tiny Box 02:42
time really goes faster and faster i'm wondering what i'm doing with my life i waste too much time working on things that don't really matter at all i know, i know, i don't want to split my brain in two i know, i know, it doesn't work to live this way anymore now i feel this time is behind me it's gonna be different, i swear i'm working on it, to live the way i really feel life is too short i know, i know, i don't want to split my brain in two i know, i know, it doesn't work to live this way anymore i'm 30 years old and i know it all now there's no way for me to settle down in that tiny box you can call me a black sheep, well i don't give a damn there's no way to stop the bad seed in me from growing stronger i know, i know, i don't want to split my brain in two i know, i know, it doesn't work to live this way anymore
10.
my fantasized life is what makes me happy a thousand possible lives, a dream that kills me i shouldn't name it a dream, it's worse than a nightmare thoughts fucked up forever, a religion i can't escape a legal drug to build myself with just about everyday hopes, tears and fights under control of the greatest substance ever made my brain is a pet that you feed endlessly i wish i knew the one i could be your program stole me that ability i'm a hollow shell in search of your stupidest fantasy it's the game you play to make money out of my pain my fantasized life is what makes me happy a thousand possible lives, a dream that kills me you breed me as a junky waiting for the next holy shit you'll sell i don't know what i'm supposed to hang on you suffocate me with your silly tales my brain is a pet that you feed endlessly i wish i knew the one i could be your program stole me that ability i'm a hollow shell in search of your stupidest fantasy i'm a hollow shell in search of your stupidest fantasy

Pattern 02:43
heavy silence throughout the room it's only the noise of the city how can we feel so lonely then when we are together? it's only you, me and our memories no one talks, no one talks, no one talks new pattern, let's play a new pattern try to make a good one new pattern, new pattern let's play a new pattern when i look in your eyes all i can see is a sea of shit when i look deep in my heart i know how i feel, how i feel no one talks new pattern, let's play a new pattern try to make a good one new pattern, new pattern let's play a new pattern how can we feel so lonely then when we are together? it's only you, me and our memories everyday we get closer to death someday you'll realize it's way too late new pattern, new pattern let's play a new pattern new pattern, new pattern let's find a good one
12.
i'm losing my time, sitting around, walking around with nothing on my mind but boredom and that rough feeling a huge need of something i can't name i don't know the fuck what i need the most but it's definitely not here civilizations, take back your illusions and all the crap you designed to run fast 'cause i know now i won't do the things that i've been asked for i don't want to fuck people over i don't give a shit about your goddam awards if that's what you call, if that's what you call recognition, you can shove it up your ass and lead the world to its fucking end at least i'm not involved i'm not involved i've seen it all for a second the weight of evolution and it's tearing me down i don't want to fuck people over how will i find who i am and what i'm worth for if i'm born to be the loser that chemistry wants me to be? where is comfort when you hate all the values you're surrounded by? comfort is in a weird song something useless a drawing in the afternoon it's you and me taking care of each other care of each other, care of each other something not expected a glimpse of happiness
