We Cry Out
We cry out into the night

Now my friend it's time to face the world
It's a crazy place, won't last for always
Now controlled by some mega clown
Docu-soap invaders, ruthless penetrators
Tell me, is this for real
It's a league of liars
They are all for hire

We cry out into the night
Into the night with shame
It's the cradle of the madness of the world
We cry out into the night
Into the night, insane
In sickness or in health we learn to burn

Now man what can I say
In the state of shock, a nervous country
Circus coming to happy town
Some kind of rebellion, the Armageddon stallion
Wake me up, this can't be real
What a test for people
Who's the master keeper?

We cry out into the night
Into the night with shame
It's the cradle of the madness of the world
We cry out into the night
Into the night, insane
In sickness or in health we learn to burn

Witchery, it is here
Lunacy, we have plenty
Go to war, rather not my friend
Hear the call from the good and sane with the perfect brain

It's a league of liars
They are all for hire
What a test for people
Who's the master keeper?
We cry out

In sickness or in health we learn to burn
What is happening to us now?
We cry out
 
 
Walls
New walls are built, new walls to save all the sacred
Mighty and proud but history is never ever wrong
And it's still going on

Just like the walls of Jericho
They will tumble down
And the curtain had to fall
But still they keep on building walls

So many lives, so many lives and no one is learning
Monuments of fear, that shows the world that no one cares
Murder; no shelter

Behind these walls the time is standing still
Forever but history is never ever wrong
And it's still going on

Just like the walls of Jericho
They will tumble down
And the curtain had to fall
But still they keep on building walls

So look now what have we become
Fathers dying all to young
Refuges in quest for light
The earth has turned into a fight
It seems this planet is burning

No it's never wrong
And it's still going on

Just like the walls of Jericho
They will tumble down
And the curtain had to fall
But still they keep on building walls

Path to evil; road to death
Keep on building walls
This is the end
Goodbye; so long
 
 
God Is the Devil
There are things we can't understand
But the world is bleeding
I speak for all, every woman every man
This can't go on anymore

So many cowards look the other way
While some are ready to die
I'm sick and tired of playing this game
Now use your brain

Raging inside, let us go for a ride
I will show you the world

Now when
God is the Devil and the Devil is God
Pray for tomorrow's children
Jesus is Satan and Satan is here
God is the Devil and the Devil is God

In this mess no one is safe
No matter how you're feeling
The doubt inside is a symptom of it all
Rebellion is coming for sure

So many lost souls came to join the cult
They do not know what they do
How do you plead when you stand before trial?
The prize is to die

Hater of life, let us go for a ride
I will show you the world

Now when
God is the Devil and the Devil is God
Pray for tomorrow's children
Jesus is Satan and Satan is here
God is the Devil and the Devil is God

Mirror mirror on the wall, show me how it shall be
Will I live to see my children grow old?
When we walk on this highway to Hell

Raging inside, let us go for a ride
I will show you the world under ground

God is the Devil and the Devil is God
Pray for tomorrow's children
Jesus is Satan and Satan is here
God is the Devil and the Devil is God
 
 
Die on Stage
We're getting old, fat, sick and bald
But there's no way that we'll do what we're told
Too many fights, so many lies
But you don't seem to realize

There are so many tickets to heaven
But there are even more to Hell
A relief is to start to believe

We will die on stage
Going out in a crescendo
We will die on stage
No one of us will back down

To be a slave from birth, til grave
Is not an option there are dreams to be saved
So shut your mouth, you make us sick
Find another ass to lick

By the power of love to the music
Breaking out from the cell
From the darkness and into the light

We will die on stage
Going out in a crescendo
We will die on stage
So save all your empty tears

You trick no one
You fool no one

It's a fight every day to make life go round
To step out of bed is just like suicide
Who's writing the scripts, who decide what is right?
We do what we feel and we're tired of your lies

By the power of love to the music
And the feeling that we'll never die
As long as we're spinning around

We will die on stage
Going out in a crescendo
We will die on stage
No one of us will back down

There are so many tickets to heaven
But there are even more to Hell
A relief is to start to believe

We will die on stage
That is a promise
No other way
Die, die, die
We'll never say goodbye
 
 
Tomorrow's Dead
Bodies everywhere and no one really cares
There's no more fire
Smart one, damage done
Now there's no turning back

A pyramid of lies a venomous advice
No resurrection
First strike then you're out
No longer hearts will burn

Women and children first
Well, that was yesterday
Is there another way

But I don't believe you 'cause tomorrow's dead
I'm not a child
There is too much talk, but the words don't fit the music
Now love is gone and tomorrow's dead

Do you understand that tomorrow's dead?
Well, yes I do
Enemies or friends, guess it all depends
The system's failing

A, B then go to D, to a heaven without stars
It's better than a pill, it's going for the kill
Get hacked and conquered
Deaf, blind, unified, coded by a code

Into the unknown land
Are you experienced?
And what's to understand?

But I don't believe you 'cause tomorrow's dead
I'm not a child
There is too much talk, but the words don't fit the music
Now love is gone and tomorrow's dead

Now get it out of your head

Women and children first
That was yesterday
Now we gotta find another way
To save the day

But I don't believe you 'cause tomorrow's dead
I'm not a child
There is too much talk, but the words don't fit the music
Now love is gone and tomorrow's dead

Do you understand?
I guess you're not
It's a prize we have to pay
What if the screen turns black?
It's a prize we have to pay
'Cause tomorrow will be dead
 
 
Good vs. Bad
You will soon become a widow
When I think about the evil to come
I fear the breeze of changes
Stand up, hold tight and do what is right

I'm the sacred savior
So pray for my immortal soul
Lonely is the hunter in the dark
But life is hell, you know

Now death is a struggle it's good versus bad
Living's not easy, it's driving me mad
Heaven's for heroes and Hell is for fools
There are so many reasons to die and to let living go

In the myth they talk about freedom
But in real life we're captured like rats
Today is not tomorrow
Stand up, hold tight and do what is right

I'm the sacred savior
So pray for my immortal soul
Lonely is the hunter in the dark
But life is hell, you know

Now death is a struggle it's good versus bad
Living's not easy, it's driving me mad
Heaven's for heroes and Hell is for fools
There are so many reasons to die and to let living go

Go, go, go, go, go
No, no, no, no, no

I look at your window and think of tomorrow
Where can I go?
Release me

You will soon become a widow
And I think of the evil to come
Today is not tomorrow
Stand up, hold tight and do what is right

I'm the sacred savior
So pray for my immortal soul
Lonely is the hunter in the dark
But life is hell, I know

Now death is a struggle it's good versus bad
Living's not easy, it's driving me mad
Heaven's for heroes and Hell is for fools
There are so many reasons to die and to let living go
 
 
Suburban Song
Who can tell 'bout the afterlife?
Who can give us the answer?
Passion is useless and I'm not ready to play ball

Seek for perfection and endless erection
The wolves there at Wall Street are in for the kill
So why can't you hear me?

And the kids on the block never gonna be the same, enemies but friends
In the pain, in the pain they find their only friend

It's time to save them, to heal them
The suburban kids are for real
The world is waiting for something
There's much we can do
So I sing this suburban song

Came along on a rainy day
But you brought me the rainbow
Things felt much clearer, but who am I to explain, oh

A volcano, burning; the mountain is turning
Crumble and tumble, what's going on
Why can't you see me?

But I try and I fight 'cause I never wanna fail, I will never bend
What a lie, what a lie, this will never end

It's time to save them, to heal them
The suburban kids are for real
The world is waiting for something
There's much we can do
So I sing this suburban song

We are lost in mass confusion
Is this a grand illusion?
Time for our retribution
Say no

We are lost in mass confusion
Is this a grand illusion?
Time for our retribution
Say no

And the kids on the block never gonna be the same, enemies but friends
In the pain, in the pain they find their only friend

It's time to save them, to heal them
The suburban kids are for real
The world is waiting for something
There's much we can do
So I sing this suburban song

Suburban song
Suburban song
It's not an illusion
Suburban song
 
 
Lost Boy
What have they done?
How come you did turn out this way?
I cannot see
A childhood of misery

No man is a mountain
No man can be stronger than life itself
Wake up you're not living in a dream
So push, push, push this is for real

I guess you're living in Utopia
Is there a place above the rainbow?
Seduced by a lie

I'm talking 'bout a lost boy
Walking to oblivion
Lost boy, try to believe and find yourself again
Lost boy, hush boy
Come back to the road of life

Why can't you feel?
There are so many ways to be
Is this for real
Or is everything make believe

Break out of your chamber
Feel strong but don't act like a maniac
Step down and breathe in the air of life
So turn turn turn, pick another road

In Armageddon or Euphoria
Do you expect a place in Heaven
Rejected by life

I'm talking 'bout a lost boy
Walking to oblivion
Lost boy, try to believe and find yourself again
Lost boy, hush boy
Come back to the road of life

You're standing on the crossroad to burn
When the evening comes
When the evening comes
I see but liars
I see but liars
But I will live forever

I guess you're living in Utopia
Do you expect a place in Heaven
My son you're blinded by light
 
 
Slaves to Ourselves
So what is wrong with the world of today?
Zombies and ghosts, robots programmed to do what leaders say
Masters and slaves; shall they die or burn just like fire?
All these brains made of metal will rust from inside
It's a phantom pain you know

Politicians; playing the game we call life
Power junkies everywhere; behold the rebirth

We get into the black
They're eating out our hearts
We get into the black
We're nothing but slaves to ourselves

I search for signs that the world is falling apart
My personal death row inside, broken thoughts must fade away
Prophets of lies are they real or dreams in the night
There's no answer just madness now Heaven is Hell
And there is no ticket back

No more patience; break out feel the strength in yourself
Sacrificed to outer space; do you understand?

We get into the black
They're eating out our hearts
We get into the black
We're nothing but slaves to ourselves

We're nothing but slaves to ourselves
Yes we are
Slaves to ourselves
Yes we are
Are you my master?

What is wrong with the world today?
I don't know, I don't know
Tell me when it's time to pay
I don't know, I don't know

Politicians, playing the game we call life
Power junkies everywhere, behold the rebirth

No one's gonna save us now
Into the black
 
 
Black Eyed Children
Soul digger of your mind
Brain hitter coming inside
Ghost stories heard them all
Don't open up your door

There are things we just can't explain
There are thoughts that'll drive you insane
Don't go to sleep; you may never wake up
And this is no sign

Don't ever pick up a stranger
They are hitch hiking vagabonds
Drive as fast as you can
This is for real

They are the black eyed children
Black eyed children
Black eyed children
Don't let them in
They are the seeds of evil

Night listener go to rest
Word warrior pass the test
No one can save you now
You should have closed the door

Many times I wanted to die
Many years I've written goodbye
This is a book no one ever has read
For the living dead

Why do we like to be frightened?
I know but I just won't tell
Lied, but now I see clearer
How do you feel?

They are the black eyed children
Black eyed children
Black eyed children
Don't let them in
They are the seeds of evil

They never leave in time
They never leave in time
Time, time

Welcome to their world
A vision or a fake
The worst of your mistakes
Say hi to all the kids of damnation
A story of the web; a hymn over the dead
So don't you ever fear all those children?

I try to move on 'cause tomorrow looks brighter
Evil is not for sale
Head for the sun, be a man and a fighter
And maybe you'll find the way
Maybe you'll find the way

Soul digger of your mind
Brain hitter coming inside
Ghost stories heard them all
Don't open up your door

Don't ever pick up a stranger
They are hitch hiking vagabonds
Drive as fast as you can
This is for real

A vision or a fake
The worst of your mistakes
Say hi to all the kids of damnation
A story of the web
A hymn over the dead
So don't you ever fear all those children?
Black eyed children
 
 
Jesus Christ Moviestar
There is no cross, there's no loss
Heaven can be like Hell
Use your brain, I believe in you

Twenty four seven, never give in
Always stay alert, it's a masters sin
Time is ticking away

Burn it up, hit the top
Living on the edge
Hit the ground turn around
This is an endless song and I sing it for you

We're all waiting for the glory resurrection
For the son of God and the man that they call Jesus Christ
The disciples wanna start a chain reaction
For the son of God and the man that they call Jesus Christ

Heaven is black, Hell must be white
Is this now my pain to bear?
Go insane, what else is to do?

Driving down the highway, Lucifer's here
Scratching your back he is always near
Keep one hand on the wheel

Burn it up, hit the top
Living on the edge
Hit the ground turn around
This is no protest song
But I sing it now

We're all waiting for the glory resurrection
For the son of God and the man that they call Jesus Christ
The disciples wanna start a chain reaction
For the son of God and the man that they call Jesus Christ

Glory, glory Hallelujah
Time to wake up, let's get brutal
Glory, glory Hallelujah
Time to wake up, let's get brutal

Burn it up, hit the top
Living on the edge
Hit the ground turn around
This is a protest song
That goes on and on
