Slowly I’m losing touch Been working far too much Gently I’m letting go Longing to be alone Silently going blind Relieving for the mind Memories are fading fast Conscience is gone at last

Exoplanet 03:31
Day 45: We’re still alive... Explain to the pack, there’s no turning back... Lunar check point passed, nobody there... Time is flying fast, and the darkness is everywhere Children exiled into the galactic night Travelling by decimal starlight A flower that once bloomed is petrified On a digital frame as their guide Day 98: Scared of our fate... Crew members lost, their death was the cost... Supplies we can’t find, and sleep becoming rare... I’m losing my mind, and the darkness is everywhere Freedom is waiting beyond the sun After all that we’ve done A city we’ll build with our own bare hands On the soil of the promised land

Are your oceans made of sand Is your earth devoid of sound Are the clouds above reflections of A shadow on the ground I want to see the world Gazing into your violet eyes Teleport me down to you Let’s watch the blue moon rise One in a million stars in a lightyear I can’t believe I found you here Hypnotic zephyr, alien birdsong Finally arrived where I belong Do you believe in deity Or living after death Are you afraid of daylight Does silence catch your breath I want to feel the world Holding your hexa-dactyl hands Lets dive in together I’m the one who understands One in a million stars in a lightyear I can’t believe I found you here Hypnotic zephyr, alien birdsong Finally arrived where I belong

What have they done to me? I cannot breathe deeply anymore. Since when must I wear clothes in white? Don’t worry, We’ll get them fixed tonight If you think they’re too tight And everything will be alright. Look around You’ve let your wells run dry You’ve let your children die We’re all suffocating kiss this world good-bye We’re all suffocating, look around Rivers, those trees, that sky The forest has always been my home But now they’re tearing it all down. Honey, I can’t believe you’re crying Because the earth is dying You know the future is in money. Look around You’ve let your wells run dry You’ve let your children die We’re all suffocating kiss this world good-bye We’re all suffocating, look around

Blue light, bare walls Used up, left alone You must learn to forgive We were once like you We were once like you But life can be so cruel Blue light, bare walls Worn down to the bone You must learn not to live
7.
I hear voices in my head They tell me to pretend That Jesus is my friend Speaks to me from the dead The weak and sick and poor They’re coming through the door I know what they wanna hear Got an angel in my ear Throw your pills onto the stage To make the devil mad Write dollars on the page And shake your prophet’s hand! Give us some hope, show us a sign Lower some rope and draw us a line Teach us a lesson to learn while we sing We need a reason for all and everything Music mass hypnosis, there’s nowhere to run All I have to say is „You’re the chosen one! You will be healed tonight!“ They smile and they nod When they kneel at my sight, I feel like a fucking God! Give us some hope, show us a sign Lower some rope and draw us a line Teach us a lesson to learn while we sing We need a reason for all and everything

Mother is here, her warmth divine As my Uncle’s eyes bore in to mine „Take my hand, you must not fear Do you want to become a man?“ Clear colors, lost brothers Holding AK-47s Mother my dear, you must not cry I’m never going to die Under the shell, I have no fear My true family awaits, farewell True horror, false honor Killing in the name of heaven Clear colors, lost brothers Holding AK-47s The sky alights with fire The air cuts through my hand My only refuge lies Beneath the molten sand

Nuke 04:30
Understanding accepted orders, I frown Armies march and a king reflects on his crown After all, our cause is just It is written in the book that I trust Culminating in mobilizing the force The time has come to annihilate the main source Raise the flag, give your thanks Light your cigarettes and join the ranks
10.
Full Circle 06:08
Watch the lights grow distant Praying for salvation I will pull the trigger Point of no return A drop of water falling Splashing in the vernal sand It’s raining in the graveyard Of a long forgotten land We are marching in sync Climbing the hill We’re seeking the pinnacle But when the smoke clears above You’ll know it’s too late The chasm has sealed our fate Will we out-think this dead drop Or will the beat of the drum never stop?
11.
The color of your skin Your mother tongue within All your physical impediments The thing they call intelligence It all means nothing It all means nothing And all that is left Are wayward souls The money in your hand A king who rules the land The millions who have fought and died Believing they were justified It all means nothing It all means nothing And all that we are Are wayward souls The storm is coming The storm is coming And we’re falling asleep Under the same sky The storm is coming The storm is coming And all we must do Is open our eyes
12.
Run away from the sky In the blink of an eye No more time, save your self Leave your guns on the shelf When you live in a life of leisure The clouds above turn grey And if you keep applying pressure The dam will break someday I’m falling Can’t you save me? Take my hand Don’t let me drown down here...

Dawn 02:36
I can breathe again Feel the oxygen touch I can see again Watch the horizon rest its head Clear water, clear water I will live again Let the world know that I’m here I will love again Let myself fall, this time I know Clear water, clear water The messengers of peaceful control Arriving at the dawn of the sun The concrete world above Now below ocean ground No more sound
