Kids of the Century
We poison our hearts
We poison our seas
We burn down the paradise

We're stoppin' good waves
We're losin' our trees
The future looks bright ahead
I don't wonder we'll go under in this river of lies

We're lost in this time - we create so fine
The future we already fear
Seems like no way out, seems like there's no doubt
The future looks bright ahead

We're the kids of the century - we're lost in our games
No time for the memories we look in the haze
We're the kids of the century it wasn't our fault
Everything's done mum, we fall
Let's keep on crying
But sometimes I don't wanna fall

Everytime when you look around things will smile at you
Everytime when you turn around you smell the truth
But you run away from the lies you can't say
Don't run away from the lies you can't say

We're the kids...
 
 
Blue Suede Shoes
(by Carl Perkins)
Well it's one for the money, two for the show
Three to get ready now go cat go
But don't you, step on my blue suede shoes
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

You can knock me down, step on my face
Slander my name all over the place
Do anything that you wanna do
But uh uh honey lay off of my shoes
But don't you, step on my blue suede shoes
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

You can burn my house, steal my car
Drink my liquor from an old fruit jar
Do anything that you wanna do
But uh uh honey lay off of my shoes
But don't you, step on my blue suede shoes
Well you can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

Well it's one for the money, two for the show
Three to get ready now go cat go
But don't you, step on my blue suede shoes
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

Well it's blue, blue, blue suede shoes
Blue, blue, blue suede shoes Yeh!
Well blue, blue, blue suede shoes
Blue, blue, blue suede shoes
Well you can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes
 
 
Exclusive Helloween interview
Kiske:
Well, Japan. We've been there, I think, two times now, and it's always been
a great fun playing there. I like the venues. They are sounding very good,
they look very good, and kids over there really appreciate good music and
stuff. And I think the next time we're gonna play at the Budokan, which is
pretty cool. Lookin' forward to it. It's gonna be fun.

Schwichtenberg:
Japan has been always great to play there, and will be in the future. And
Japan people are great, it's fun to play there and you feel very confident
and convinient or whatever to play there. And Japanese people are listening
very carefully, I don't know. It's great to be in Japan.

Kiske:
"Kids of the Century" is the first life sign of us after two and a half
years. And after all those rumours going around about this band - me
leaving the band, me splitting up, or the band splitting up, and all that
stuff, which has been quite a lot. Maybe that's normal when the band's not
on the scene for a while. But after that it feels really good to have,
actually, a new album ready and a single out. So the kids know we are still
there. And with the music you can prove what you can do still even without
one guy that just left the band. I think we found the right person there,
Roland. And I think the album says everything. Yeah, I wrote "Kids of the
Century" about more than two years ago now. And remembering that time I
feel like, when I wrote that song, I was in that feel of that all the kids
today, they just feel like they haven't got anything to do with the
problems. Everything goes wrong, the nature or whatever. Just came out of
that feeling actually. And that's what the song's all about, I think. What
the kids today... Because I feel like everybody's responsible, especially
the kids. If they don't feel like they have to change anything or have to
make things better, nobody will.

Schwichtenberg:
I think having Roland in the band is.. we are as lucky as we have Michael
in the band by that time, we are lucky having Roland in the band. And he's
just doing great songs and great guitar work he's doing. And a good pal as
well. He's a nice fellow. And he just fits in the band very much. I think
the fans will accept him of course.

Weikath:
Well, the nice thing about Roland being in the band is that I saw him
like, I don't know, fifteen years ago or so on stage, and I thought that
was pretty impressing, what he did there, and I could never forget about
that. And that's why actually I called him up then when we needed another
guitarist, "Remember that guy?". And so it took me, like, four hours to
find out the number, like I had to phone up musicians I knew and suddenly
somehow I got the number, and phoned him up: "You might not know me, but I
know you. How about playing guitar in Helloween?" And he didn't even know
the band. So I had to give him some examples of our songs, like really
loud, cranked it up. And so, well, he was interested, like it quite a lot.
And then we went to rehearsing, we had to do the whole stuff within two
months. 'Cause then we had to go on an American tour and Japan meant two
hours of playing. And well, ha ha, quite a tough job I would say. After
all, I mean, we can handle that, we are pretty good, you know. And I'm
sorry about that, but well... yeah, Roland is a very nice guy. He's
doing a big part of the band with his character, and his kind of being.
And it's quite a difference too how the whole thing worked before, because
he is a completely different character. He is a lot more calm and very
critical. He's always got his own opinion and that's exactly what we need.

Kiske:
Yeah, we recorded the album at PUK studio in Denmark, which is a very good
studio, I think, very lovely place. It's right in the middle of nowhere
but that's actually what we wanted, to really concentrate on the album.
And working with Chris was pretty cool, because he's got a very strong
sense of humor as we like it. And we had some cool moments there and
that's all caught on the album. Yeah, the production that Chris
Tsangarides has done is right in your face. That's the best description
of the sound actually. So just check it out!

Schwichtenberg:
Crystal clear, or...

Kiske:
Crystal Tsangarides clear, ha ha!

Weikath:
I would say thank you to everybody who kept up the faith during all that
time, and after all, those rumours are untrue.

Schwichtenberg:
The best thing for the fans, for the people who like us, is just to listen
what comes from us directly, like this now, and the album of course.

Kiske:
Yeah, especially the album.

Schwichtenberg:
Don't trust any rumours or whatever.

Kiske:
The thing is, forget about what's been in the magazines, or what has been
said, or all the stuff. And just check out the album and you know what's
going on. Of course, the single as well.

Schwichtenberg:
Thanks for keeping the faith.
 
 
Shit And Lobster
Once there was a time when mankind
Dreamed about reaching the stars
Nowadays we're almost ready
Even for the wars

Some told lies and they were famous
Cause of making many wars
One told right, they punished him
With pain and crucify

What is right and what is wrong
Can I prevent, can I be strong
Quick enough to run away
Or brave enough for here to stay

Time will bring the answer
Will we feed the cancer
We don't give a damn at all

Some get shit and some get lobster
Take my ass into the sun
It takes some time to realize
We cannot eat a gun

The fat gets fatter, the poor stays poor
The money maker sells the skin
But you don't ask and you don't see
The world you're living in

Got my fears and got my doubts
Tell me what it's all about
Should I try a step
Or should I stay and wait another day

Time will bring the answer
Will we feed the cancer
We don't give a damn at all
