Diorama · Zero Soldier Army

01 · ZSA

Are you serious?
Do you think I'm such a smog-brained Teflon-hearted easy target
Ever prone ever accepting?

Don't you know my zero soldier army
Taking aim and getting jittery?

Fire! Reload! Broadsides from the ghost ships!
Fire! Leave not one stone on another!
Hunker down! Protect you children!

Don't you know my zero soldier army
Taking aim and getting jittery?

02 · Off

I belong to more comfortable days
While disease always finds its ways
My skies will not clear up
I'm doomed to stay in my maze

Don't be concerned… the power is off…

In your mini monitor window
Critical spikes in the fear indicator
Note: when you see the headless
Chickens in the treadmill
Note: when you hear their maydays
Raised by the software hare-hare
In advance - you will burn

A system repairing itself
Unflinching like a virus
A remote chain reaction
Note: when you tick the checkbox
They'll spark the flame - and watch you burn

Don't be concerned about anything
But the essentials
There's a greater plot in motion
You've played all the right moves
Anything wins now
You're the ghost in the firestorm generator
…Let them burn

03 · Defcon

Now pull yourself together
Pour a drink, light a cigarette
And tell me about the weather
And how the sky turns violet

Every time we collide-and how it all gets messed
Every time we collide-before the suns comes up at you
Like a forbidden light-another lame excuses
Undignified - they will do the job for you

This is the greatest trick of the century
And it runs runs runs like a clockwork
Why do you whisper?
Why don't you scream at me?
What a real fake-life we won't be sharing

And pull yourself together
Pour a drink, light a cigarette
And tell me about the weather
And all the fun we never had

I store you in the gift box
I take you out on a weary day
We're going deaf when fear talks
We overrule our deity

Every time we collide-we radiate the brightness
Every time we collide-from the amazing fallacy
Like a forbidden light-behind our sweat-soaked faces
Undignified - but who on earth needs dignity?

04 · Beta

Instantly you're taming the monster
You're breaking the iron rule
So you can enjoy your life

Mercy me my soul is unconscious
My eyes full of liquid
A flood of betraying glare

Keep the scream inside
Until you're ready for the echo
Echo echo
Keep the scream inside
Until you're ready for the echo
Ready for the echo

Drunk with power and gambling with fire
You shrug off the danger
Advancing on velvet paws

While you dream your life is exploding
But you can afford it
Cause you are the best of all

Keep the scream inside
Until you're ready for the e e e

05 · Smolik

No underaged drinking beware of the dog
Watch your step mind the gap
Slippery surfaces unstable cliffs
Electric fences corrosive mines
Tornadoes and hurricanes high voltage wire
Laser radiation pesticides
Caution slow down caution slow down
But what about the unborn
Alien under your skin?

Elderly people nuclear warning
Critical values fatal drops
Use at your own risk don't drink the water
Don't feed the bears don't cuddle the puppies

But what about the unborn
Alien under your skin?

Low blood pressure extreme downhill grade
Volcanic fumes snakes scorpions
Keep off the grass don't touch the monument
No trespassing spring guns chemicals

But what about the unborn
Alien under your skin?

Lower your pace
To a faltering trot
Stare into space
Find your favourite spot
Black holes under
Fluttering eyelids
Curving all around
Like an ampersand

Hearty applause
That it very well played
Given the jaws
Of your beta blockade
Keep on rocking
Keep on rolling
Only drowning will
Bring you back to land

It's going fine
It's going fine etc.

You're not crossing the line
The line is crossing you

In your sublime
Tragicomical style
Squandering time
In denial of denial
Easy peasy
Lemon squeezy
You're a running dog
With its back on fire

Never forget
You're the marathon man
Never forget
I'm your craziest fan
I don't mind your
Self destruction
And your promises
That will all expire

It's going fine
It's going fine etc.

You're not crossing the line
The line is crossing you

07 · Polaroids

We're marching on like there is nothing wrong
Gazing ahead from night time into day
Conceding how we've never set foot on
The path we share – this is it!

Whatever I felt back then I want to feel it again
The empire strikes back wherever it can
Keep your hands off our happy routine

We co-design the madness that we serve
And everything has got to be in tune
Goodbye my love I'm busy having fun
Hahahaha – this is it!

Whatever I felt back then I want to feel it again
The empire strikes back wherever it can
Keep your hands off our happy routine

Please give me more of whatever it is that you've given me
Polaroids fade and we bury alive our memory
There is no pressure you deserve all the love but it's killing me
Don't cut the leash even though it's too late it will always be

08 · Reality Show

What happened to the ocean view
You claimed to be your property?
The nights you had it crystal clear
The touch of air and sky?

You only talk about feelings without having them
You only talk about feelings without having them

Hyper hyper transformation
Taking over taking over
Slowly creeping suffocation
Taking over the reality show

The sea has given up on you
And every wave you dive into
Is just a rotten compromise
A deal that fell apart

You only talk about feelings without having them
You only talk about feelings without having them

09 · Amnesia Club

Meet me at amnesia club
Recall the plan don't fuck it up
Get the car keys get some cash
Decelebrate avoid the crash
Put a bleak smile on your face
(just in case just in case)
The radio plays the end of days
Messages are floating by
Sincerely yours it's a lie

Next club… next crowd…
Update… quick note…
Waitress… next round
Red stuff… black stuff…
I try to forget…

Hey – HEY! - where's the party?
You – YOU! - are you with me?
Hey – HEY! - where's the party?
Here – HERE! - Here we go again!

Meet me at amnesia club
Recall the plan don't fuck it up
Bring the booze bombay and juice
Forget the fight tun off the light
Only music will be there
Unclouded greatness in the air
Yesterday is years ago
Alright you fuckers that's our show

10 · Comfort Zone

Get me the wingsuit
I'm gonna base jump from my ivory tower
This may invade your comfort zone
To cause some distraction
A little firestorm in this darkening hour
This may invade your comfort zone

Confusion in confusion out you know my methods
In the name of emptiness

Play me a death waltz
We're gonna pirouette
Down this very thin ice
This may invade your comfort zone
Forever a legend
And the characters live while the episode dies
This may invade your comfort zone

Confusion in confusion out you know my methods
In the name of emptiness

Your fear is a canyon
A kind of fear they're not preparing you for
A never-healing gash in your
Comfort zone comfort zone laa lalalaa lalalaa

Confusion in confusion out you know my methods
In the name of emptiness
Keeping alive the fire hologram
Against the cold
Against the cold

12 · Stay Undecided

Stay undecided it will bring you some time
Stay undecided it will bring you some time
Everywhere else vultures swoop down on your head
Everywhere else it's ok it's ok it's ok
Forget the knife in your back and those who make you feel
Like you put it there take the middle course
You don't belong to the party of living death or dying life
There is always a hole in the workflow

Stay undecided with your head in the fog
Stay undecided with your head in the fog
Leave the dots unconnected and the questions uncleared
The truth is quickly rejected when the legend appears
Forget the knife in your back and those who make you feel
Like you put it there take the middle course
You don't belong to the party of living death or dying life
There is always a hole in the workflow

And she loves you she loves you not
If you don't fight it it will leave you alone
Until the point of no return… so go on

You'll be united where the thin red line ends
You'll be united where the thin red line ends
In your no man's land of liberty and gin
Under layers and layers of useless information
Here comes the man with all qualities
Here comes the unknowing prisoner
You've got nothing to say that's why you're such an awesome listener

And she loves you she loves you not
If you don't fight it it will leave you alone
Until the point of no return… so go on
