Track Name: prolegomenon
INTRO
Track Name: give something back
Taking the way of the least resistance always keeps you alive.
Too many lost opportunities, too many depressions.
Too many situations you lent into the bent.
Too many conflicting emotions.
The fear of rejection cuts away your state of mind.

There is only one way living your life:
What would it be like if I had the chance to change?
It is hard to be honest with yourself.
It’s easier to convince oneself that nothing is fine.

Deactivate! Progression! Reactivate!
Is it really that bad?
There are more things I cherish than I could wish for.

Stop wallowing in self-pity and start to realize the
circumstances of the life you’re living!
(Let‘s be grateful and give something back!)

There is only one way living your life:
What would it be like if I had the chance to change?
It is hard to be honest with yourself.
It’s easier to convince oneself that nothing is fine.
Track Name: erik in the box
The redemption totes a gun and is disposed to seal the wall in people’s minds. The life has gone, death walks abroad, public conscience have been adjudged bankrupt.

Mind your head and recover your breath! The first shot will not be the last. The final call to betray our ideals will soon take place.

He separates the sheep from the goats.
‚Blackwater‘ flows into lands and opens out into blood.
In the name of god. We aren´t worried that there´s a murderer on the loose. A call for justice in the name of what?

Run for cover and recover your breath! The salvation fades to final solution. A martyr on the path of god will show us what we should afraid of. Things have come to a pretty pass if we call this‚ 'poetic justice'.
Track Name: a motley tristesse
Quality yield – the end of perfection have been received.
Charges are to be collected while we inhale the shit, we don´t spot right now.
We abandon the level. The hope for amendment even now they say: „a fault confessed is half redressed“
Knowledge for all: forevermore!

It´s a half hearted matter of public concern. A multiplex culture, in which their company has enjoyed.
Is this a sequence of tense? Are there signs of recovery?
A bibliphobia blaze a trail and we take the line of the least resistance in order that we retrace ones steps.
This will pass down generations if we stand along side and don´t walk the talk.
Track Name: dead end street
Just cracked and dried out ground.
Streams of toxic liquids low through infested rivers.
Dark clouds obscure the sun.

I can hardly see my own hands through the dust.
I try to gasp for breath. It feels like my lungs dissolve.
A bitter sweet taste in my mouth reminds me of the bitter sweet memories I had for humanity.

The earth became a test tube for technological progress.
Natural resources were overstretched for years.
“What if you could go back in time, and take all those hours of pain and darkness and replace them with something better?”

I can hardly see my own hands through the dust.
I try to gasp for breath. It feels like my lungs dissolve.
A bitter sweet taste in my mouth reminds me of the bitter sweet memories I had for humanity.

I guess everything comes down to this: „There is nothing we can do“.
(It is time to get rid of the plague called mankind. Rest in peace my little friend.)
It seems there’s no way out.
The hope is gone, just go on and let it all fade to grey.
Track Name: to contemn the world
Contrary to expectations there are nothing more than guidelines mankind should pursue.
Easy answers for upholders of moral standards.
Easy suggestions to affect people to be morally right.
Is there anything that proves these conditions wrong?

It should be obvious: an inviolable man, a book by the grace of what?
Amen to that, Amen to that!

Just get in line, there are more people like you complying with the rules.
Above all of you slowly swings the sword of Damocles.
Just turn one more page and it will cut you into bite-size pieces.
It seems to be difficult to strive against the stream without arms and legs.

Isn’t it ironic to hope against hope? Vague questions don’t lead to satisfactory replies!
It seems to be much easier to swallow, pray and line yourself up the lock of like-minded sheep.

Just lean back and ascend to heaven. Stand in line for an empty living.
I’ll prefer to step out of line, be smart and take a seat in hell.
Track Name: corroding indifference
You can feel the indifference. It’s breaking through your soul. You can feel the innocence. It’s caused by the shell you coat yourself with. The shell that was created by your indurated heart.

You’re eaten up by envy. It controls your heart.
You’re corroded by the greed of profit.

It’s written all over your face, the carelessness that restricts you in your own thinking.

Doesn’t it feel good?
Don’t you feel careless?
Doesn’t it feel good?
The darkness embraced your conscience!

It’s written all over your face, the carelessness that restricts you in your own thinking.

Doesn’t it feel good?
Don’t you feel careless?
Doesn’t it feel good?
Someday it’s taking it’s toll!
The darkness embraced your conscience!

It’s written all over your face, the carelessness that restricts you in your own thinking.

I think these days for most of the people it’s hard to find. The right button to push within their heads and hearts. It seems like people avoid creating a sense for empathy. But to me my friend there are other ways to obtain satisfaction than living in abundance.
If you’ll ever come back for more the less you can hide!
