Track Name: Syphilization
The reason of existence
Tell me what are we supposed to do?
Evolution shows the progress that we never made
These facts aren’t true

The human race is growing
But the ignorance is growing too
Afraid of falling back in disorder
We know we’re fucked, we know we’re screwed

The human race caused a disease
They brainwashed us and still we’re pleased by flu
Western civilization
All created by our nation
Government flu

We are civilized
'Cause we wear fur collars around our neck
We're crewing up the eco system
Corporations got our backs

We don’t know what’s going on
The children don’t know who to trust
But thank God there is civilization
Hands together for our nation

I don’t think there’s a place for us to go
We are part of a sect and we don’t know it

The human race caused a disease
They brainwashed us and still we’re pleased by flu
Western civilization
All created by our nation
Government flu
Track Name: Mercy
Kids on the playground, bulletproof vest
Tightly secured around their chest
Innocent kids don’t know why they’re still free with all that hate
Wouldn’t it be great?
Playing with your mate
Without those guns pointing at you

I don’t know why
I don’t know why
All of this shit could get so far
Freedom of speech
How can we reach
What isn’t there

Please have mercy
mercy, mercy
A lack of mercy in this world (2x)

Masked intruders, forcing their faith
Killing all the people never felt so great
Do they even know it’s someones dad or son they’ve killed
They must be thrilled
Another life drilled
I bet your God will hate you too

I don’t know why
I don’t know why
All off this shit could get so far
They’re only faith
Is getting laid
By made up girls

Please have mercy
Mercy, mercy
A lack of mercy in this world (2x)

I don’t know why
I don’t know why
All of this shit could get so far
Freedom of speech
How can we reach?
If we can never ever ever disagree

We’ll never fight
We never will
Conform ourselves with all this hate
Our only hope, our only hope
Is to defend ourselves with mercy
Mercy, mercy
A lack of mercy in this world
Track Name: My Fur Coat
Look around, this is all insane.
We’re all so trendy, we’re all so vain.
The blood is dripping down your neck.
Without even knowing someone waved the white flag.

I don’t care that you are who you are.
But please think again;
Is it worth the blood when you buy your identity?

We are the ones who kill just for fun.
We skin them alive and throw back their bloody bodies.
Go ahead, buy yourself that coat.
Put in on and conform yourself with death.

I don’t care that you are who you are.
But please think again,
Is it worth the blood when you buy your identity? (2x)

Look around, this is all insane.
We’re all so trendy, we’re all so vain.
The blood is dripping down your neck,
Without even knowing someone waved the white flag.

Look at me, I’m all overdressed tonight.
This coat, the fur, it fits totally right.
The blood looks good with my high heels,
I don’t even wonder how it feels,
To be stuck in a cage, so small.
Why won't they care about them at all?
So think again, is it worth the blood?
When you buy your identity, while they’re all caught.

It’s my fur coat,
It looks so good on me tonight.
It’s my fur coat.
Track Name: The Night Stalker
Dressed in black
On the side of the road
Dressed in black
On the side of the road
Better hide your girlfriend
Cause the night stalker’s at work

Cuts off your arm
Pokes out your eye
Cuts off your arm
Pokes out your eye
Better hide your girlfriend
Cause the night stalker’s a jerk

Execute the killers, make them pay for what they’ve done
But don’t mind politicians, they are killing just for fun
That’s how it is
That’s how the world will make it’s lies
When you kill that murderer you better think about your mistakes
Think twice
Cause the night stalker, he will poke out both of your eyes
Think twice
Track Name: Toy Gun
Five year old kids
Let’s put a toy gun in their hands
Where is the fun
In the death of all your friends

Fighting for peace
Meanwhile our kids can carry guns
Let them play dead
Instead of spending time just once

Back then they had hide and seek
They played without imagining someones death
And now you wonder why your son took the wrong path
Do you really think you raised your kids allright?
When you give them guns, you teach them how to fight

Five year old kids
Let’s put a toy gun to their heads
Where is the fun
In killing all your friends

Fighting the war
Meanwhile our kids can carry guns
Have you ever thought
About spending time just once?

Back then they had hide and seek
They played without imagining someones death
And now you wonder why your son took the wrong path
Do you really think you raised your kids allright?
When you give them guns, you teach them how to fight
Open your eyes
Open your eyes
Drowning in lies
Open your eyes

Put a toy gun to my head
Pull the trigger and pretend I’m dead
Another kid got drowned by thoughts
And right and wrong just lost it’s meaning
Put a toy gun to my head
Pull the trigger and pretend I’m dead
Kids and guns guarantee peace
Track Name: The Forgotten Kids
What’s the matter? [Nothing]
Why’re you sad? [I’m not]
We’re sick of the questions that were already answered by us
And why all this rush?
It’s fiction so keep us away from your digital world

Get the fuck up
Can’t you see what you’ve done?
They all suffer from depression
And the blood's on your hands

I cannot live
Cannot live
With all these kids still falling down
No true emotion in their eyes
No recognition in their sight

Secluded from the world
And never find yourself a girl
It’s a sick society, so stop asking questions to us
And why all this rush?
It’s fiction so keep us away from your digital world

Over one million people die by their own hand every year
Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide
Of course we could help them
It must be a part of our human instincts
But if we only stopped living in this tunnel vision
And started looking at each other
Maybe then they wouldn't feel so forgotten
Maybe then they wouldn't feel so lonely
The forgotten kids

I cannot live
Cannot live
With all these kids still falling down
No true emotion in their eyes
No recognition in their sight
Cannot live
Cannot live
With all these kids still falling down
No true emotion in their eyes
No recognition in their sight
Track Name: American Pride
Be my guest in the golden state
Be my guest in the golden state
Do you want to be around?
Or would you rather be dead than found there?

The golden state
It’s not that great

Where did all the fun things go?
Up north or down below
When you walk on Venice Beach
Happiness, I cannot reach it

The golden state
It’s not that great

Waving the American flag
Even though nobody likes you
Waving the American flag
Proud of the American flag
Proud of the American flag
Proud of the American flag
Track Name: Divided by Zero
I’ve never felt so
I’ve never felt so sane around the decent people
Don’t let them touch me
Don’t let them touch my brain
Divide my life by zero

Anything for independence
But money keeps us caged in life
Being a part of all the decent people
Brainwashed by our education
We’re growing up, we live to die
We crave to divide our lives by zero

Life is worth more than we think
But if a million people walk in line
What’s the point of living when you work to pay and live to die?
Telling ourselves that we’re free
Ignorance is bliss they say
But does that count when you’re aware of living life the slaving way

I hate people, I hate kids
I hate everyone who’s rich
Talking shit behind my back
Break their skulls, crush their necks

I hate violence, I hate peace
I hate rocks between my teeth
I hate my generation
No (7x)

Get outta my head
Don't wanna walk in line
Don't wanna spend my time
Just being dumb
Don't wanna walk in line
Don't wanna spend my time
Just being drunk

Don't wanna walk in line
Don't wanna spend my time
Just being lame
Don't wanna walk in line
It's the insanity of being sane
Track Name: Tropical Suicide
Jamaica
Jamaica
I’ve been out there
So calm and warm

Jamaica
Tropical sun
Jamaica
You’re the only one

I smoked my pot
Laid in the sand
A cold lemon beer
Such a good friend

I’ve got the job
I’ve got the cash
Got my private beach
And a Mercedes Benz

The girls, they love me
They love my life
Every single one
They want to be my wife

I’m living the dream
Like a king
Yes, life is good
It’s just partying

Yes and I’m good too
It’s just paradise
I'm driven by luck
And my soul will rise

My sun glasses on
Under the palm trees
The wind in my hair
The girls on their knees

So that was my life
As you can see, it’s rad
To end it in style
It has to be blood red

So I bought a gun
Completely sane.
Pointed at my head
And blew out my brain

So now I’m dead
By my own hand
The dark red blood
In the Jamaican sand

And I’ll never regret
What I have done
Cause Jamaica
You're my only one

Jamaica, Jamaica
Are you doing alright?
Cause I think I’m fine

Jamaica
Tropical sun
Jamaica
You’re my only one baby, let’s go

Jamaica, Jamaica
I’ve been out there
So calm and warm
Jamaica
Tropical sun
Jamaica
You’re the only one
Track Name: Who to Trust?
What do you want from me?
Don’t tell me what to do
Stop throwing yourself at me

What do you want from me?
Don’t tell me what to do
Stop mutilating up my brain

Your actions speak so loud
Can’t even hear a thing
Stop throwing yourself at me

Just tell me what you want
So I can reject you
Stop mutilating my brain

How am I supposed to trust you?
[Fuck off]
[Fuck off]
I don’t even trust myself at all

This is not the time to give in
[Not now]
[Not now]
I don’t even trust myself at all
Who do I trust?

What do you want from me?
Don’t tell me what to do
Would you please fuck off?

What do you want from me?
Don’t tell me what to do
No, not now please

How am I supposed to trust you?
[Fuck off]
[Fuck off]
I don’t even trust my self at all

This is not the time to give in
[Not now]
[Not now]
I don’t even trust myself at all
Who do I trust?!
