01 · Weight of the World

Pleased to meet you, we came to drop bombs on you
Shatter illusions, connect the dots and yell the truth
They'll trade fame, sex and gold
For a piece of your soul

Deceit, it will kill ya
Defeat, it will show what you're made of
Retreat, never surrender
You say you carry the weight of the world
Guess who's carrying you…

So no one told you they've been lying to us all along
They thought control us, 1984 is now
Imagine there's no Lennon
It might be hard, but give it a try

Deceit, it will kill ya
Defeat, it will show what you're made of
Retreat, never surrender
You say you carry the weight of the world
Guess who's carrying you…

02 · Apollo (Live on Your TV)

The sun is up
mission begins
suits and helmets on
now we look like twins
are we going to succeed, I wonder
then they shut the door
and engines start to roar

Cameras rolling and we're ready to go!

Live on your TV defying gravity
There's a pale blue planet beneath us
We're live on your TV dictating history
knowing that they'll never believe us

Staring at a paper moon
Thinking to myself,
I wish we'd go home soon
inside the eagle's shell
we float in space
we know just what to do
waiting for our cue

Cameras rolling and we're ready to go!

Live on your TV defying gravity
There's a pale blue planet beneath us
We're live on your TV dictating history
knowing that they'll never believe us

Spread the news from east to west
greatest wonder of our time
we got it on film

03 · Asleep or Awake?

What's with your head?
Controlled, dumbed down
Since your life began
They play us like fools
We sell out to be in
A "bread and circus" game

They dumbed us down and slowly…

Changed our thoughts
Now we believe in nothing
But never-ending wars
In which we're all gonna lose

What's going on, you're sedated again?
Already wasted half your life
Stone cold hearted and arrogant
They teach "Ignorance is bliss"

They dumbed us down and slowly…

Changed our thoughts
Now we believe in nothing
But never-ending wars
In which we're all gonna lose

Now I lay me down to rest
But I can't get no sleep
It's getting late, you still won't listen
I'd better stay awake

They dumbed us down and slowly…

Changed our thoughts
Now we believe in nothing
But never-ending wars
In which we're all gonna lose (ourselves)

04 · Incompatible

They say reality is an illusion
We all create our own
So who is right or wrong?
Yes, I am still searching for the truth
When did you stop looking?
Where did we go wrong?

Every time you create a problem
You have the remedy
The same old strategy
I ate the red pill, no turning back
The gloves are off now
Where did we go wrong?
Where did it all go wrong?

The fruit of my imagination
A blessing or a curse
I'm a stranger in a plastic nation
Stuck in reverse
Take a look from my perspective
It's so obvious to me
I can't stand this narrow-mindedness
We'll always disagree
We're incompatible

For all this time
They've deceived the nations
It always makes me sick
I don't belong here
If I turn off, then engage me please
Count my heartbeat…
Where did we go wrong?

Molded to fit into a system
A brain-dead society
No questions being asked
Our minds are bent
Raise your fists and yell
"Power to the sheeple!"
Where did we go wrong?

The fruit of my imagination
A blessing or a curse
I'm a stranger in a plastic nation
Stuck in reverse
Take a look from my perspective
It's so obvious to me
I can't stand this narrow-mindedness
We'll always disagree
We're incompatible

05 · United States of Credit

I pledge allegiance to the card, the United States of Credit
One nation under debt with bankruptcies, late fee's and high interest for all

06 · Shadow

Staring at the ceiling sorting out my thoughts
Weighing every word I want to say
Darkness fills the room, it's closing in on us
The words all come out wrong again, I let you down

If I could just trust more I'd dare to speak the truth
Wish I could give one hundred percent
It's sad and unfair, you too are suffering
When I'm the guilty you are the innocent

For way too long
I've been merely a shadow of my true self
I'm in despair
I'm beyond repair

A shadow hanging over me it clouds my mind
Preventing any sane thoughts to occur
A silhouette is cast on your side of the bed
Reminding me of what I have become

For way too long
I've been merely a shadow of my true self
I'm in despair
I'm beyond repair

07 · Green Queen

You broke my heart
And you made me blind
You tied my hands so that I couldn't fight
Yeah, you broke my heart
And made me blind
You cursed my path now I can't find…

Restless moving on
It's a battle for your life, you better run
Together they come strong
Now you realize what's been going on

You broke my heart
And you made me blind
You tied my hands so that I couldn't fight
Yeah, you broke my heart
And made me blind
You cursed my path now I can't find… peace of mind

Poison on your lip
Expecting someone else to die from it
She stole another soul
Trapped, imprisoned under her control

You're exposed now, I'm back to "square one" again
So much clearer now, for good I'm breaking the chain

I don't need you, I've fallen for a scam
I never asked you to come into my life, you destroyed what I am

When you broke my heart
And you made me blind
You tied my hands so that I couldn't fight
Yeah, you broke my heart
And made me blind
You cursed my path now I can't find… Peace of mind

08 · Butterfly Defect

Watching from above
The deep blue seas
The yellow fields
And all the green

But in between
I see grey smoke
Cancer like black spots
Looks just like LA

But there is much more
There is much more to this
Than you can see

There is much more to this
I guarantee - just wait and see

The aeroplanes flying by
They carry paperclips
And young blond girls

There is much more
There is much more to this
Have a closer look - then you'll see

09 · State of Your Heart (Sh*t End of the Deal)

I'd give you the strength to carry on
If I had any strength myself
Things have changed from bad to worse
Somehow we never blamed ourselves

Should have taught you how to deal with things
But back then I had no clue
Now demons from our past have come haunting you

It's killing me - To think of how it used to be
The state of your heart
The bitter hurt yet beautiful
We had our roots pulled up, nothing's grounding us
We got the shit end of the deal
(Forever)

11 · →

They will burn us at stakes, tell us we're fakes
Inferior insane
They'll break every rule, make us their tool
Corrupt us, make us vain

Ahead of your time, you poked out your eye
Then rose to fame
As blind as a bat, unaware of the fact
You're just a pawn in their game

I'm over here on the right →
Ready to fight
No gnashing of teeth for me

12 · Pitch Black/Heat Death

Pitch black - I'm easy prey tonight
You know how it goes, you can't deny
That's right, I sell out every time
It's going downhill, but still I climb

I got two strong hands and some good genes, I'll survive
Still I'm in the wrong lane cause I don't drive
I tell myself "out of sight, out of mind"
Have to learn the hard way every time

I had to learn it the hard way
I let you go, I let you run away…

Heat death - Can't wait till you get here
I'm gonna pack my stuff and disappear
You know it stings my heart and crushes my pride
But unlike me he'll stay by your side

You know it's only me against the world this time
Too bad being stubborn is a crime
Found a note, written to me, I guess
It said "I died for you, cause you're a mess"

I had to learn it the hard way
I let you go, I let you run away…

13 · Black Versus White

The piper is playing just the right song
Pretty faces smiling so convincing
They are all doing it, they got it all
What are you waiting for, follow the leader

It all seems so perfect, make love not war
Pick and choose a cure for boredom
We're so close to the edge now, but nobody cares
Far away, in the arms of morpheus

We all agree this ship is going down
And what goes around comes around
Running away at the speed of light
Won't keep us safe - black versus white…

Sit back and enjoy the very last show
Watch the prophecies unfold before us
Step back for a while, look into their eyes
"Now it's dark", the party is over

We all agree this ship is going down
And what goes around comes around
Running away at the speed of light
Won't keep us safe - black versus white…

14 · Trash

Maybe, maybe it's the clothes we wear,
The tasteless bracelets and the dye in our hair,
Maybe it's our kookiness,
Or maybe, maybe it's our nowhere towns,
Our nothing places and our cellophane sounds,
Maybe it's our looseness,

But we're trash, you and me,
We're the litter on the breeze,
We're the lovers on the streets,
Just trash, me and you,
It's in everything we do,
It's in everything we do…

Maybe, maybe it's the things we say,
The words we've heard and the music we play,
Maybe it's our cheapness,
Or maybe, maybe it's the times we1ve had,
The lazy days and the crazes and the fads,
Maybe it's our sweetness,

But we're trash, you and me,
We're the litter on the breeze,
We're the lovers on the streets,
Just trash, me and you,
It's in everything we do,
It's in everything we do

But we're trash, you and me,
We're the lovers on the streets,
We're the litter on the breeze,
Just trash, me and you,
It's in everything we do,
It's in everything we do…
