Fear 02:08
Hear nothing, so I was told. See nothing, I'm going blind. Say nothing, silence is gold. Think nothing, I've lost my fucking mind... When peoples fear governments, there is tyranny. When governments fear peoples, there is liberty. Come over and watch the news. Whatever, we're born to lose. Monkey see and monkey do. I'll be free whenever I'm told to...
Who Cares? 02:51
Why don't ants get stuck in traffic? How is it that birds learn to sing? Did Neanderthals go extinct? How can I improve my thinking? Who the hell cares? Anyone there? Why, when and where? Stop splitting hairs! Why are there so many insects? Are we the last human beings? Why do we feel sad after sex? How smart are blue whales and dolphins?
Trust in God, just in case we happen to be wrong. Making the world a mess, losing it for so long. We're but nuclear waste, speaking in forky tongues. Memories were erased to make us feel this strong. Divided we would stand. Together, we will fall. So sick but no one cares. Stupid, we're almost there. We think we must possess in order to exist. Like we're all scared to death, like we cannot resist. We can't stop buying more, selling out is our goal. In sex-shops and drugstores, what about Rock'n'Roll?
New Dark Age 01:59
Some sleep rough on dead-end streets or get pissed at six AM. Others snooze in their bedsheets, can't sleep 'cause they're on cocaine. Some resent income taxe, sitting in their comfy seats. Others who can't pay their lease hardly-ever make ends meet. Our love of money's the root of evil. This world of selfies, mindless and fickle. A brand-new dark age, built on ignorance. The total wreckage of our existence. Some must flee their own countries, looking for more tolerance. Lacking solidarity, some want to rid of migrants. Some feel brave behind their screens, shouting out their opinions. Digging graves behind the scenes, leaders ignore us minions.
Alt Ctrl Del 03:20
Make it stop, rid of it. Take control, no regret. Try to live and forgive. Till you find peace of mind... I need a break from what's useless and fake. I suffocate, never been so awake. Make my space something real. With people I can feel. Speaking less, say much more. Be my guest, be my whore...
