Track Name: arsonists
we are a dying breed
we slowly rot away
we just stand and stare
as our lives wither away
Track Name: searching/finding
friday nights and lovers’ hate
another glass just to sedate
where is the life that´s meant for me
a vision of what i´ll never be
i lost my track ages ago
the road home is far too long
self-doubts are silent ghosts
but the ones that i fear most

i spent years with the search for an identity
what i received is a lack of memories

love is lost, life gone wrong
bloodshot eyes the same old songs
the sun is too weak to keep me warm
let’s hope she sees another morn
the silent hope i barely hear
the dirty stream the dusty tears
if there is light teach me to see
relearn to live, how painful it might be

i try my best to focus on
the better life
another morning sun

to see a better life...
Track Name: bloody rye
surfeited by our own wealth
while humanity is asleep
we realize that the flowers wither
but see no need to intervene
selfishness it reigns our actions
AS IF WE HAD A SECOND TRY
we wash our hands in salted water
remove the blood from under our nails

promises don´t feed desperate souls
the hand that feeds turns to a claw
the bloody rye poisoned our soil
the bloody rye poisoned our soul

is it blindness / or is it disinterest / are we sedated

there is no ark in sight
no god no savior
to save us from the flood
to save us from the flood
please save us from the flood
Track Name: life is a beautiful lie
get a life – that´s what they say
fall in line – every single day
believe the lie – that you live
find the safety – that only lovers give

the sweetest lips – the saddest songs
into a life we don´t belong

is this the life – that you wished for
is this the place – where you wanted to be
time is a thief - slipping through your fingers
as life isn´t more than a beautiful lie

the sweetest lips – the saddest songs
into a life we don´t belong
into a place in the dirt
into a place beyond all the hurt

the sweetest lips – the saddest songs
Track Name: alles brennt
ihr nennt das leben ihr nennt das freiheit
doch seht ihr nicht dass alles brennt
gleichgeschaltet ins unglück taumelnd
nur existieren ist was ihr kennt
doch alles brennt

wo ist der freiheitsdrang
den jedes tier sein eigen nennt

zufriedenheit aus angst vor neuem
die faust geballt doch nie erhoben
sich selbst nie in frage stellend
wartend auf antwort von oben

wo sind die träume wo ist die hoffnung
WO IST DER FRUST - WO IST DIE WUT
begraben unter gesellschaftszwängen
sie einzufordern fehlt dir der mut

es raubt dir luft
die luft zum atmen
ihr nennt das leben
ich nenn es sterben auf raten

ihr nennt das leben
ihr nennt das freiheit
doch seht ihr nicht dass alles brennt
seht ihr nicht alles brennt
alles brennt
