Track Name: 21st century
HOLD FAST,
PREPARE FOR A BUMPY RIDE
HOLD TIGHT,
DON'T YOU EVER LET GO
HOLD ON,
TO YOUR BELOVED ONES
THE MORAL IS
STICK TO YOUR GUNS NOW
WATCH OUT,
DON'T LET 'EM CATCH YOU
TAKE CARE,
NEVER EVER BE CRUEL
KEEP YOUR GOOD WILL AND DON'T CORRUPT…
THEY ARE JUST WAITING FOR THE CHANCE TO FUCK YOU UP!

WELCOME TO THE SHIT, WELCOME TO THE 21ST CENTURY …
DON'T LET IT DRAG YOU DOWN!
WELCOME TO THE SHIT, WELCOME TO THE 21ST CENTURY …
BLISSFULLY LIVIN' A LIE!

KEEP GRIP,
WITH BOTH FEET TO THE GROUND
DON'T SLIP
THE FAST LANE IS TROUBLE-BOUND
STAY STRONG,
FOR ANY GREATER CAUSE
RISE UP! RISE UP! RISE UP! RISE UP!
DON'T STALL,
WE ALL FEEL PARALYZED
KEEP UP,
NO ONE HAS TO WALK ALONE
KEEP YOUR GOOD WILL AND DON'T CORRUPT…
THEY ARE JUST WAITING FOR THE CHANCE TO FUCK YOU UP!

… DOWN WE GO, DOWN WE GO, DOWN WE GO, DOWN WE GO,
DOWN WE GO, DOWN WE GO, DOWN WE GO, DOWN WE GO!
Track Name: people vs. people
LET'S SEE WHO'S GONNA LAUGH LAST,
I'M SURE IT'S NOT GONNA BE ME
YOU KNOW WHAT THEY, WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT
NICE GUYS ALWAYS FINISH LAST.
THERE'S NO INTEGRITY BUT
DISTRUST AND RIVALRY
I HATE THIS GAME AND I'M SICK OF ITS' PLAYERS
CAUSE I'M LEFT TO FEND FOR MYSELF

IT'S PEOPLE AGAINST PEOPLE
AND I GREW SO SICK OF THIS.
IN A DOG EAT DOG SOCIETY,
I WAS BRON WITH THE WRONG MENTALITY.
FEELING ALONE,
IN A WORLD AS FUCKED UP AS THIS
FEELING ALONE…

I'D LOVE TO SAY THAT I'VE COME TO TERMS WITH THIS
FOUND A WAY HOW TO DEAL WITH THE CRAZINESS,
BUT I CAN'T BE WHAT THEY WANT ME TO.
I DON'T HAVE AN OFF SWITCH FOR MY MORAL CODE.
THE NEIGHBOR'S LAWN IS ALWAYS LOOKING GREENER,
JEALOUSY MAKES MAN A LITTLE MEANER…
FUCK NO, I AIN'T JOINING IN!
SPARE ME THE INDOCTRINATION!
Track Name: overboard
THERE IS STILL A LONG WAY TO GO FROM HERE,
WE WON'T FIND ANY PEACE IN OUR RAGE
READING EACH OTHER LIKE OPEN BOOKS
WITH THE LAST CHAPTER NOT WRITTEN YET
ACTIONS GOT LOST OVER DEBATES,
THE SMELL OF DEFEAT ALL IN THE AIR...
WE WAIT IN DOUBT FOR A HAPPY END
THEY SAY IT'S UP TO US - WE SAY IT'S UP TO THEM...

DISAPROVAL - WE DESPISE
DISAPROVAL - OF COMPROMISE

WE DESPISE FOR THE SAKE OF THINGS THAT WE ADORE,
WITH NOT MUCH THAT WE REALLY WISH FOR
WE'RE CRAVING FOR SOLUTIONS
FINDING NEW PROBLEMS AT EVERY DOOR
ACTIONS GOT LOST OVER DEBATES,
THE SMELL OF DEFEAT ALL IN THE AIR...
WE WAIT IN DOUBT FOR A HAPPY END
IS IT UP TO US - I GUESS IT'S UP TO US

OVERBOARD, WE THREW OUR TORTURED SOULS
AND WE SHED NOT A SINGLE TEAR, ANYMORE
CLEAR THE DECK, WE LOCK AND LOAD
THE TRUTH, THE UNTOLD INSECURITY
Track Name: getting by
DO YOU MISS THE DAYS?
WHEN WE WERE KIDS - THERE WAS NO NEED TO WORRY
LIVIN' DAY TO DAY, DRIVEN BY CURIOSITY AND SIMPLE JOY
WE DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE POINTLESS MONOTONY AHEAD
WE WERE SO INNOCENT…

I JUST WANTED TO LIVE,
ALL I DO IS TRYING TO GET BY
I JUST WANTED TO LIVE,
ALL I DO IS STRUGGLE TO SURVIVE

… AND OUR INNOCENCE
SOON GOT OVERRRUN
BY THIS DISILLUSION…

THE NIGHTS WE SPENT LOOKING BACK,
WISHING OUR CHILDHOODS WOULD HAVE STAYED UNTOUCHED!
