Track Name: LOST AND FOUND
Feel like dropped at the lost and found
Kind of shocked at what's going on
Hear them talk in a distant sound
What the fuck? I need to move on!

Don't let it go to waste, don't give up on yourself
Don't ever copy/paste, just like everyone else

My head is stuck in the clouds
Yet I'm always feeling down
I feel good yet kind of sad
Kind of sane yet kind of mad

Don't let it go to waste, don't give up on yourself
Don't ever copy/paste, just like everyone else
Don't give your soul away, wake up and do your thing
Don't do as they all say, stand out and spread your wings

Feel like dropped at the lost and found
Kind of shocked at what's going on
Hear them talk in a distant sound
What the fuck? I need to move on!

Don't let it go to waste, don't give up on yourself
Don't ever copy/paste, just like everyone else
Don't give your soul away, wake up and do your thing
Don't do as they all say, stand out and spread your wings
Track Name: SICK SAD WORLD
All the things that I have done sound great.
All the things that I have seen looked fake.
There is nothing I can ever choose.
There is nothing I can do but lose.

It's a sweet-sweat suicide.
You're going down a tricky ride.
As you stand still by my side.
You're sinking deeper underground.
It's a sweet-sour compromise,
A promise that you will close your eyes.
Don't you live your dreams but dream your life.
Don't you ask a thing, don't try to hide.

I feel awkward in this sick world,
In this graveyard, staying on guard.

It's a sick sad world...

All the things that I have done sound great.
All the things that I have seen looked fake.
There is nothing I can ever choose.
There is nothing I can do but lose.
It's a sweet-sour compromise,
A promise that you will close your eyes.
Don't you live your dreams but dream your life.
Don't you ask a thing, don't try to hide.


I feel awkward in this sick world,
In this graveyard, staying on guard.
Track Name: FIGHT BACK !
Deceived by the ones we choose,
Losing by our very rules,
No escaping our fate,
No turning back it's too late.

Fight back !
Catch 'em all, hang 'em all...
Switch the roles, take control.
React !
Let people all stand tall...
To the polls, change it all.

Taxed down to our drink and food,
Treated like we're damaged goods,
Tricked by all their cunning words,
Trapped inside a dead-end world.

Fight back !
Catch 'em all, hang 'em all...
Switch the roles, take control.
React !
Let people all stand tall...
To the polls, change it all.

Taking advantage of us,
There's no limit to their lust.
No escaping our fate,
No turning back it's too late.

Fight back !
Catch 'em all, hang 'em all...
Switch the roles, take control.
React !
Let people all stand tall...
To the polls, change it all.
Track Name: SELF SLAVERY
Day in-day out we fade away
We try to shout what we can't say
On the inside, lost memories
The former child we have betrayed
We're slaves ... In chains ...We crave ... For pain ...
Time after time, we try to find
Something behind our peace of mind
Someone to match our desires
Something to crash into fire
Track Name: TUFF LUV
You keep saying I'm not listening everytime you're being annoying.
I love your eyes, you hate my lies, you've analysed I might like guys.
I keep saying you're not trusting, you keep thinking I may be cheating.
Don't you worry I'll be faithful, don't be silly you're beautiful.

Spank my arse and be my slave
Treat me gently, call me names
Marry me and cheat on me
Tie me up and set me free
Spank my arse and be my slave
Kiss me hard and break my legs
Beat me up and then I will
Get angry and then I'll chill

We keep breathing but are we living ?
We keep talking no one's listening.
We keep fighting but who's winning ?
We are loving all of those things.
Don't you think it's time we talked ?
Don't you think it's time we fucked ?
Marry me and cheat on me
Tie me up and set me free
Track Name: HOLLOW ACHE
Messages on my answerphone keep telling me that I'm the one.
Her sharpened claws have scratched my back,
her killer smiler's broken my heart.
Should I go out or stay at home, it's all alike since she's been gone.
She took a part of my kingdom, she stole my heart and my freedom.
In her trap I have been snared.
To her smile I've been enslaved
I feel all dizzy and stunned,
addicted to her venom.
I dream all day in the bright light but I can't ever sleep at night.
I run away from my despair, I feel lonely 'cause she's not there.
Her ghost is haunting my nightmare but sort of hurts when it's not there. Her perfume lingers in the air to remind me of my despair.
In her trap I have been snared
To her smile I've been enslaved
All tangled within myself,
I have become someone else.
Track Name: PLASTIC SOULS
I feel it in my bones,
I can't believe my eyes.
The thought of it alone
Happens to cause to rise
A feeling in my guts
That makes me feel upset,
Something just like disgust
Without proper outlet.

Deep inside the heart of things,
There's a string that's vibrating :
Desire to rise and fall
Inside our plastic souls...

Flexible hands and feet,
A tongue to lie and cheat,
My own learned behaviour
So sweet yet so bitter,
Emphasis on vision
Blinds me with perception,
Such an intricate brain
Tends to drive me insane.

Deep inside the heart of things,
There's a string that's vibrating :
Desire to rise and fall
Inside our plastic souls...

I feel it in my bones,
I can't believe my eyes.
The thought of it alone
Happens to cause to rise
A feeling in my guts
That makes me feel upset,
Something just like disgust
Without proper outlet.
Track Name: ALT CTRL DEL
Make it stop, rid of it
Take control, no regrets
Try to live and forgive
Til 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
Track Name: DOG EAT DOG
A little bird told me one new way to skin the cat
that ate the canary and as I'm as blind as a bat,
I did what monkey see and started racing with the rats.
Am I a dumb bunny? has curiosity killed the cat?

Dog eat dog, man is a wolf to man
Dog eat dog, fat cats steal our riches
Dog eat dog, sick bastards with a tan
Dog eat dog, they treat birds like bitches

I barked up the wrong tree, the horse I bet on might be wrong
A cock and bull story of kitten-weak and lion-strong
Shaggy dog stories made a monkey out of me
Bats in the belfry make it smell a bit fishy

Dog eat dog, man is a wolf to man
Dog eat dog, fat cats steal our riches
Dog eat dog, sick bastards with a tan
Dog eat dog, they treat birds like bitches

A little bird told me one new way to skin the cat
that ate the canary and as I'm as blind as a bat,
I did what monkey see and started racing with the rats.
Am I a dumb bunny? has curiosity killed the cat?
Track Name: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
Artificial intelligence and natural stupidity.
We stand for peace yet we sell guns to those who deny all forms of liberty.
Artificial intelligence and natural stupidity...
Our religions are intricate, they teach us love, therefore we hate. We're not racist, we are simply fearful, not suspicious but simply careful.
Artificial intelligence and natural stupidity...
We're liberal yet we're all slaves, we're all equal once in our graves. Someday we will finally realise that we never will feed on bank notes.
Artificial intelligence and natural stupidity...
Track Name: MASS EXTINCTION
We can't help but destroy all the things that we touch
Like the world is our toy, like people aren't worth much
Although we love ourselves, we are self-destructive
Until nothing is left, we'll take more than we give

Mass consumption, we won't take a break
Mass extinction, 'til we meet our fate
Mass consumption, we won't take a break
Mass extinction, 'til we meet our fate

We can't help but destroy all the things that we touch
Like the world is our toy, like people aren't worth much
Although we love ourselves, we are self-destructive
Until nothing is left, we'll take more than we give

Mass consumption, we won't take a break
Mass extinction, 'til we meet our fate
Mass consumption, we won't take a break
Mass extinction, 'til we meet our fate
Track Name: WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME
Sunday morning and I can't sleep :
I've been gazing at a screen
For so long it's made my eyes sting.
Monday morning, I can't get up :
Not a plan for the whole week.
My future seems to be dire and bleak.

Got my back up against the wall.
At my wit's end, skating on thin ice
Up the creek without a paddle
Striving hard to race against time

All my friends are outgoing
And wonder what's wrong with me
Since I avoid coming to parties.
All my friends are so loving,
Some of them want to help me,
None of them will ever let me be.
Got my back up against the wall.
At my wit's end, skating on thin ice
Up the creek without a paddle
Striving hard to race against time
Sunday morning and I can't sleep :
I've been gazing at a screen
For so long it's made my eyes sting.
Monday morning, I can't get up :
Not a plan for the whole week.
I wonder what the hell is wrong with me.
I wonder what is wrong with me...
