Rotersand - Capitalism TM

My boat is heading for a distant shore
What if I go astray?
I'm frightened like so many times before
A bigger challenge in my way

Wherever we go
Whatever we try
Whoever we love
Or whenever we cry
We"re not alone

Whatever we give
Whatever we strive for
Whatever we live or whatever we die for
We"re never alone

Inside my head I hear a melody
An old familiar song
The voice is coming from my destiny
To lead me where I do belong

Wherever we go
Whatever we try
Whoever we love and whenever we cry
We"re not alone

Whatever we give
Whatever we strive for
Whatever we live and whatever we die for
You're never alone

Never alone

We're not alone
We're never alone
We're not alone
We're never alone
We're not alone
We're never alone
We're never alone
Never on our own
Where do we belong
Never on our own

I'll find something
You'll find something
I'll be someone
You'll be someone
I'll find something
You'll find something
I'll be someone
You'll be someone

Give and take something
Live and fake something
Go and hate someone
Shove and bait someone
Go and write something
Go and hide something

Go and be someone
Go and be someone
Go and be someone

Another crash
Just like before
Another bore
No need to leave your chair

Another flash
No aftershock
Rewind the clock
Why should you even care?

Don't you think you've had enough
Of living easy, playing tough
It's about us
It's about us

Don't you think its about time
For a shift of paradigm
It's about us
It's about us

Buzzing around the flame
Buzzing around the flame

Its just a crack
But it will last
It's growing fast
It's bound to break the rules

So fly your flag
Take up a stand
And grab your chance
To sail this ship of fools

Another crash
Another crash
It's about us

Your debts and your riches
Your energy and your breath
The cheap and the precious
Your memory and your death

Your creeds and your crusades
Your provaty and your power
We spot and we take it
'Til everything is ours

We take it all and the rest is yours
We sell your curses and their cures
We take it all - We feed on your expense
We take it all
We take it all

We take you
We own you

Your dreams and ambitions
Your enemies and your friends
Your angst and your visions
And all your favourite bands

Your time and your money
From cradle to your grave
From fearsome to funny
There's nothing you can save

Hey, hey
We take you
We own you
We take you
Thank you, thank you, thank you

Hey, hey
We take it
Hey, hey
We take it all
Hey, hey
We take it
Hey, hey
We take it all

You dwell in our matrix
Like monkeys in a tree
Controlled by informatics
Believing that you're free

What we think is what we get!
What we think is what we get!

What the heck are we doing?
With our lifes
Keeping our souls in dungeons
Until we're barely alive
I wish we could find the courage
And turn on the light
Why don't we finally wake up
And simply open our eyes

What we think is what we get!
What we think is what we get!
What we think is what we get!
What we think is what we get!

And suddenly we see…
The things that really matter
Our greatest enemies
Are shadows on the wall
And suddenly we see…
For worse and for the better
Our torn realities
Illusions after all

You and me keep believing
In only one truth
So we're throwing the aces
But we call on the deuce
I wish we'd only be ready
To open our minds
Why don't we finally take it
That we don't have to be blind

What we think is what we get!
What we think is what we get!
What we think is what we get!
What we think is what we get!

And suddenly we see…

What we think is what we get!
What we think is what we get!
What we think is what we get!
What we think is what we get!

Play by the rules
And play your role
Be white as snow
And black as coal

Adapt your body
Adapt your soul
You keep it quiet
We keep you whole

Dance-control
Style-patrol
Self-control
Cruise-control
Mind-control
Monopole

Style-control
Self-control
Forget about your very goal
Don't ever leave your pigeonhole

Style-control
Self-control
Forget about your very goal
Don't ever leave your pigeonhole
Mind-control
Monopole
Just any rock is gonna roll
And you will cheer and pay the toll

Play by the rules
And play your role
Be white as snow
And black as coal

Adapt your body
Adapt your soul
You keep it quiet
We keep you whole

Monopole

Now she's found
The meaning of her life
Higher ground
A place you feel alive
She'll be the first in line
So lucky
It's happening divine

Welcome home
To this all-consuming life
Welcome home
No need to push and strives
Welcome home
To this all-absorbing bliss
Welcome home
Sink into your abyss

Rags galore
It almost hurts her eyes
Superstore
This must be paradise
A picture for her friends
So happy
The trophy in her hands

She'll be the first in line
So lucky
It's happening divine
A picture for her friends
So happy
The trophy in her hands

She's a queen
The mirrors are her friends
She'll be seen
No need to make amends
She'd rather run than walk
Forever
A hunter on the stalk

Welcome home
Welcome home
Welcome home
Welcome home

Welcome home
Welcome home
Welcome home
Welcome home

Hey, you standing here
With that sad track in your head
You with that look
Hey, you dancing here
Like you're drown towards the edge
You with that look

Are you waiting for someone?
Searching for something?
Yearning for something?
Burning for something?
You, are you ok?

Are you waiting for something?
Hoping for something?
Crying for something?
Dying for something?
You with that look

Are you looking for answeres?
To hush down the voices in your head
Repeated those bleak songs
That turn your colours pale and sad
Are you looking for answeres?

Are you looking for answeres?
To hush down the voices in your head
Repeated those bleak songs
That turn your colours pale and sad
Are you looking for answeres?
Missing a chance you never had
Crouching in your corner
Wishing you danced your life instead

A thousand words are spoken
Thought and yelled
Unheard, unheard, unheard, unheard
A thousand needs uncatered
Suppressed, never met
It hurts, it hurts, it hurts

A thousand tears were rain
Wiped
Our smiled away
Away, away, away, away, away, away, away, away
A hundred fears are triggered
Endured
Remain to stay
To stay, to stay, to stay

You're nothing
I'm it

Time and time again
Like a fly against the window
You're forgetting where you've been
Chasing 'round in circles caught within

Running from the pain
You leave yourself in limbo
Disregard the truth you've seen
Hiding in the dark to save your skin

Stuck in yesterday
You're wasting your tomorrow
All the self that you can be
Worn out a silent pointless fight

It's time to break away
To leave your poky burrow
In the darkness you can't see
But right behind your blinders there's a light

Still you feed your soul with poisoned food
You just can't get enough
You crawl in chains
Believing you are free

So many times you've had enough
Your vision blurred with every bluff
Got to get alive
And learn to disagree

Bought a private dancer
The  latest gadget
A  cyber-fancy
Desire object
From plain romantic to überload
Choose  your temper
Select  your mode

But can you see me…
Or  is your world as dark as night?
Can you feel me…
Though your arms are open wide?
Can you hear me?
Can  you try to understand?
Can you hold me…
When my heart is in your hands?

With eyes wide open
You lead the course
My heart is beating and so is yours
You move to gently
You talk so sweet
This feels like heaven in repeat

In this dream I will never ever sleep at all
In this dream I will never ever sleep at all
In this dream I will never ever sleep at all
In this dream I will never ever sleep at all
