Wasteland
Though it's nothing new: we still rob our planet
It's the daily truth, we interfere with everything
Annihilation of our life's space - it is such a

Wasteland
Nothing can exist without being disturbed
Civilization kills!
Wasteland
Sooner or later we'll transform a system
That's already been perfect

It's always been the same, we take
Ourselves too serious
We're not the best of all, we are just a part of it
Is there any race as destructive as we are?

Wasteland
Children are dying for what they do not see
Ideology kills!
Wasteland
Knowledge is something for people with reason,
With responsibility

Wasteland
The more we even learn
Wasteland
The less we understand
 
 
In the Darkest Hour
In the darkest hour
It is time for the truth
When you're fast asleep
In the darkest hour

A modern man, a nice gentle guy
He cuts a real smart figure from his head
To his toes
But when the night falls and the mask
Comes off him then,
He changes to a raping, pervert monster man

Like Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde

"I'm gonna get you tonight!"

In the darkest hour
It is time for the truth
When you're fast asleep
In the darkest hour
The upright housewife, busy with her meals -
Things like chatting with the milkman
Are her only thrills
But when the night falls and she puts
Her stocking on,
Yeah, then she gets in heavy
With the neighbour's so

Like she's a domina tonight

"I'm gonna shoot off your balls!"
Some people hide what they are

In the darkest hour
It is time for the truth
When you're fast asleep
In the darkest hour
 
 
Animal Instinct
In the depths of our mind
There hides a lust that's really dangerous and blind
Waiting for the outburst, for an instigation, I bet

You won't be ashamed
To kill if you're not blamed, no
It won't need much to free
The element of crime!

Our world is full of hidden crime
What they call god is nothing but an empty shell
And in this name they think it's right to slaughter,
A higher order

You won't be ashamed
To kill if you're not blamed, no
It won't need much to free
The element of crime!

Animal instinct

All day we hear it in the news
In every state and country the defenceless are abused
What could we even learn from history, it's just
A dated list of crimes

Animal Instinct

Animal Instinct
See it in their eyes!
 
 
Perfect Man
There are secret tests
Labs in east and west
Working for their states
On a second race

Changing human genes,
Building 'em new again
To a perfect kind -
Modern Frankensteins

It's a simple plan:
They try to build a man
That's more productive,
More intelligent

Pefect mind and body

But it is no use
Humanity will lose
'Cause the greater mass
Becomes a second class

Nature's not to rule
Those who try to do
Could be the first to go
When the mutants come

Who would stop these slaves
When they leave their cage?
Then we'll meet our fate
'Cause they're better, they've got

Perfect mind and body

Nature's not to rule
Those who try to do
Could be the first to go
When the mutants come

Who would stop these slaves
When they leave their cage?
Then we'll meet our fate
'Cause they're better, they've got

Perfect mind and body
 
 
Sinister Thinking
How many men have been killed 'cause of religion?
For example Iran and Irak, this war is going on
For more than a decade.

It is more than ridiculous how these brothers
Kill themselves for the geed of might
That their leaders covered real clever
With the name of a god

Religious
This is sinister thinking
Fanatics
Ruled by sinister thinking

They drill this evil spirit in their children's heads
So there's no ending in sight, no

Religious
This is sinister thinking
Fanatics
Ruled by sinister thinking

Madmen, madmen
Killing their lands

In east and west
There is sinister thinking
Religious
This is sinister thinking
Fanatics
Ruled by sinister thinking
 
 
Supersonic Hydromatic
He comes in the kitchen, a smile on his face
"My dear, this will free you from all of your straits!"
And he turns on the switch and it starts to move -
This TV commercial has caught us anew

Supersonic hydromatic, nothing works without it now
Be a real progress fanatic and you will believe somehow

"Oh yeah, this must be a real innovation!"
Away with the critical mind for a sense
And he opens the purse and he pays for thing
That you only need if you're spastic and dim

Supersonic hydromatic, superultrameganew
Household furniture, like magic,
The neighbour's wife has got one, too

No! Noone needs your offal!
This isn't worth it at all

He comes in the kitchen, a smile on his face
And he turns on the switch and it blows up!
"Instead of having a help I'm a big fool", he says

Supersonic hydromatic, nothing works without it now
Be a real progress fanatic and you will believe somehow

No! Noone needs your offal!
This isn't worth it at all

Supersonic hydromatic, nothing works without it now
Be a real progress fanatic and you will believe somehow
Supersonic hydromatic, superultrameganew
Household furniture, like magic,
The neighbour's wife has got one, too
 
 
Don't Fear the Winter
Autumn - the time of darkness and decay
Life's running shorter day by day

Winter - has gripped the land in cold caress
He's all alone and deeply depressed, she's dead

Don't you fear the winter, I will keep you safe
And warm
Don't you fear the winter, nothing's gonna
Do you harm

Midnight - and on the graveyard a storm is RAGEing
The clods of earth hide his whole life

Homeless - who's lonely now will be for long
The wind will drift him on and on, like the leaves

Don't you fear the winter, I will keep you safe
And warm
Don't you fear the winter, come with me,
There'll be no harm

A silent might that has moved you
Hear your waters stand still
Striding down to the elder
Soon you'll meet her again

Autumn - who's got the time knows nothing yet
Who cares?  But watchful are the Dead

Midnight - It's hard to face and deeply sad
But you're asleep so don't look back, you're dead

Don't you fear the winter, I will keep you safe
And warm
Don't you fear the winter, nothing's gonna
Do you harm
Don't you fear the winter, I will keep you safe
And warm
Don't you fear the winter, come with me,
There'll be no harm
 
 
Death in the Afternoon
Harold Walker was a banker
He drove a Mercerdes-Benz
He was a well respected, rich, young man
He'd got a house in the country
He was a member of the club and
His girlfriend Diana was so sweet

Larry Smith was Harry's schoolmate
He has always been a warrior
Never he had money or a job

Wednesday afternoon, 5 p.m.
It happened on the new built highway
Harry was a bit diverted and

So he lost the control of his car
And crashed into a truck
And he hadn't a chance, he had never a chance
Death in the afternoon,

Larry was the first to come along
As he saw his old mate Harry
The chequecards covered with blood,
He knew, he was the richer one of both

Harry had a million dollars
But he'd lived to short

And he hadn't a chance, he had never a chance
Death in the afternoon

Death in the afternoon
It could come very soon
Death in the afternoon
Your coffin has no pockets...
 
 
A Pilgrim's Path
This journey started long ago
When will it end?
I don't know

My ship's been stranded many times
I've missed some chances,
Yes, I know

My tale is not 'bout a hero
Anyway, but the stone and the flute are
With me

A pilgrim's path

I was a boy when Arnie died.
He put it all in my hands

This was the time I had to leave
On this path with no release

Though I've been seeking for a lifetime
I don't know exactly what I'm searching for

A pilgrim's path

I have begun to settle down -
Still there's a hole in my life.

This cannot be the reason why I was born
Restless heart

Maybe that I'm not alone here,
What will I find if I leave to seek new shores?

A pilgrim's path

Give me one more chance
Please don't leave me here
Show me what I missed
 
 
Time And Place
When my time to die has come,
Where will be the time and the place
To return from eternal space
Like a shadow out of time

Everything that lives on earth
Has got a mind to start once again
When a life has passed
Beginning and end, they go hand in hand

And when I'm gone, what will become of me,
an animal or a man?
Where'll be the time and the place

In this endless cycle
Noone gets lost

Tiny like dusts we're whirled away
In oceans of the universe

Where'll be the time and the place,
Time and place

Caught in time and place
 
 
Round Trip
Leave here; turn back;
More beer; one track;
Hot sun - caribbean; blue sea - palm tree beach;
Hotel - behind the dunes; leisure time - animator;

Round trip, hip-grip, bullshit, fit - hit
Groovin' away in the heat of the car
Round trip, hip-grip, tourist's madness
Sweating away in a first class hovel

Guest loo; french food;
Sightseeing - tourist guide; bus tour - standard price

Round trip, hip-grip, bullshit, fit - hit
Groovin' away in the heat of the car
Round trip, hip-grip, tourist's madness
Sweating away in a first class hovel

Good skiing!  Mountaineer;
Alpine - snow bunny; divine - modest dirndl;

Round trip, hip-grip, bullshit, fit - hit
Groovin' away in the heat of the car
Round trip, hip-grip, tourist's madness
Sweating away in a first class hovel

Round trip, hip-grip, bullshit, fit-hit,
Tourist's madness, hip-grip, round trip!
 
 
Between the Lines
Oh, I give a fuck
To what you say 'bout what I'm doing -
Believe it or not

Oh, you can't comprehend
What I have made but try to find out
What I've meant

Tribunal, tribunal
Oh, not me
Mighty fools make the rules
Don't try to get rid of me
Robbery, robbery
Is mentality
Machinery, machinery
Building lies, but read the truth

Between the lines
Don't you let them fool ya, see the signs of time
Between the lines
Nothing' like it seems, so read between the lines

Now the time is right
You steal the authorities' might to rule our minds

Between the lines
Don't you let them fool ya, see the signs of time
Between the lines
Nothing' like it seems, so read between the lines

Between the lines...
 
 
Symbols of Our Fear
When I think of what our world
Is to become I get really scared
'Cause every state in east and west
Has got enough weapons to kill all of us
They're selling nuclear material
To developing countries, so that they're part of our
Modern hell, the atomic age,
The pestilence of our century

These are the symbols of our fear
Show us the end of it is near
These are the echoes of our past
But let us end this curse at last

Some people in the industries,
They're faithful statesmen, yes, indeed!
They're getting rich while they're selling death,
Now, don't you think that's too irresponsible?
In these days you've talked about
Reduction of the armament race
And this time we have all won
So go on guys and hold this line

Noone believes when they say
That they could control what they've made
Laughing in the face of death...

These are the symbols of our fear
Show us the end of it is near
These are the echoes of our past
But let us end this curse at last

These are the symbols of our fear
Show us the end of it is near
Damn you, who feed the fires of hate
For gettin' rich, soon it's too late

These are the symbols of our fear
Show us the end of it is near
These are the echoes of our past
But let us end this curse at last
 
 
Neurotic
He's a neurotic!

"I cannot stand it anymore!
You slut!  You goddamn filthy whore!"
(This is not a gentleman's style)
He's screaming with a deep-red face
(Oh, you seem a bit angry, don't ya)
This is a choleric attack, he's got it sometimes
(mmmh, my god!)

He's a neurotic, gonna break his neck
I don't wanna get like this

Don't worry 'bout this guy
It's up to you to show him better ways
Don't get to angry if he failed again
His moods hard to control

And when he steps out of the door
The kids, they laugh at him once more
(Motherfucker, motherfucker, bababa!)
If he didn't cry or wish he was dead
(Nobody loves me!)
He would scream out in boiling RAGE
(Fuck you assholes!)

He's a neurotic, gonna break his neck
I don't wanna get like this

Don't worry 'bout this guy
It's up to you to show him better was
Don't get too angry if he failed again
His moods hard to control

He's a neurotic, gonna break his neck
I don't wanna get like this
