Carved in Stone
I see the young boys, they're standing so proud
In their brand new uniform
I hear their tough voices, no doubt allowed
For god and country they storm

And then they're marching in that war, into death
They catch the bullet with their heads

All that is left now
Is only names carved in stone
Forgotten heroes underground
Not much is left now
Some rusty nails, some rotten bones
The dead hero's names carved in stone

The politician lives in a white house
The boys have tents in the mud
He's getting richer with weapons and oil
While the young men give their blood

And the deceivers will salute at the graves
Of those betrayed 'bout their own lifes

All that is left now
Is only names carved in stone
Forgotten heroes underground
Not much is left now
Some rusty nails, some rotten bones
The dead hero's names carved in stone

You won't survive!
Noone survived!
 
 
Drop Dead!
Sometimes I'm pretending about being something else
'Cause I cannot stand it anymore
Misanthropy might not work but I can't help myself
Human kind is rotten to the core

Evolution's dead, go back to hell
Demolition man, we're all to blame

Root it out - drop dead
This could be a better world
Go away - drop dead
Root it out - drop dead
May return a better man
Go away - drop dead

Have you ever thought of how good nature runs itself
This world doesn't need one of our rules
Everyone just swallows till a perfect thing is dead
The most stupid's king of all the fools

Evolution's dead, go back to hell
Demolition man, we're all to blame

Root it out - drop dead
This could be a better world
Go away - drop dead
Root it out - drop dead
May return a better man
Go away - drop dead
 
 
Gentle Murders
Dirty is the road to fame
Plastered with unlucky victims
Deadly if you get the blame focused on you
You can play your games with fear
Manipulate all around you
You want all, that's why you're here, so come what may

Win or lose, get rid of those who're in your way
(Make a stone out of your heart)
Win or lose, so stab the knife and fake a smile
(While you sell wrong for right)

Put a foot into that door
Get in charge, start pulling the strings
Show no mercy to the poor that crawl for you
In position you're immune
Noone stops you, theres no frontier
Now you're licensed for the kill, smile anyway

Win or lose, get rid of those who're in your way
(Make a stone out of your heart)
Win or lose, so stab the knife and fake a smile
(While you sell wrong for right)

Gentle murders mark your way
Awful and unpunished
Gentle murderers get away
You'd be caught and locked away if you weren't elected
Gentle murders get away
 
 
Open My Grave
No, this door is not allowed, the pharaoh
Lies beneath these stonewalls
You, get off my pyramid, you gotta go
Don't, don't you disturb me

I used to rule all the land, I was god on earth
Never I'll match in your plan
Go, or you'll be cursed

Death, you'll meet infernal death for a sacrilege
Hey, now let me warn you

Cursed you'll be for all your days
If you open up my grave
Let me sleep beyond decay
Never open up my grave

Wrath will follow you through time, no way to hide
Die by strange diseases
If you step into my world you'll lose your life
Like all other thieves

You're in my palace of death, from the other side
How can you mess with the dead, this is suicide

Here it's not for mortal men, you gotta know
When it's time to turn back

Cursed you'll be for all your days
If you open up my grave
Let me sleep beyond decay
Never open up my grave

I was once like you before
Never showed respect for no one around
But those days would end and it was too late to learn

Cursed you'll be for all your days
If you open up my grave
Let me sleep beyond decay
Never open up my grave
 
 
Without You
Days passing by while you're wasting your time
You're living your life without you
What you protect is what you reject
You're living your life without you

I can see you, I can feel you
But what I learn to know makes me sad

You're so far away, you are lead astray
All that fear made you hard, made you mad

Days passing by, while you're wasting your time
You're living your life without you
What you protect is what you reject
You're living your life without you

I could heal you, I could lead you
From your world that's in darkness and pain

Can you see me, can you hear me
I'm your self that you never have known

Days passing by while you're wasting your time
You're living your life without you
What you protect is what you reject
You're living your life without you

You're living your life without you...
 
 
Long Hard Road
You better pack your things to go
'Cause when it's time you never know
You better be aware that nothing's gonna last for long
So long

Nobody else can help you out, it's up to you
It won't be easy, don't allow the swamp to swallow you
What once was right can soon be wrong, you got to know
Don't stick too long to yesterday, you can't stay

Where do we go from here
Where do we go
What do we know right here
This is a long hard road

Another day to start and try
Another night to end and die
So many hours in between that come and go, stand by
Goodbye

There is a bridge across the abyss of your fear
A hand that leads you through the dark when it comes over you
Your love inside, the inner flame, that's why you're here
The only thing that will remain forever

Where do we go from here
Where do we go
We gotta go right here
This is a long hard road
 
 
One Step Ahead
I know, some will hate my guts
'Cause I'm telling the truth
They'll deny me 'cause I am exposing their rules, nothing but fools

Scared of possibilities
That life laid down to their knees
Uncontrolled, unguaranteed

Change is now and it is clear
Nature works this way, my dear
Just the moment is for real

Heads up, you fools! Someone controls your head, man
Heads up, you fools! Someone's controlling you

Can you feel it in the air
Life's eternal, everywhere
Free yourself and be one step ahead
I'm confessing to no one
To no father and no son
Free inside we'll be one step ahead

There are those who live in fear
Don't know what else to do
They're unable to believe, going nowhere, never they dare

All these people have their gods
Their religion tells them what
They are not allowed to do

Heads up, you fools! Someone controls your head, man
Heads up, you fools! Someone's controlling you

Can you feel it in the air
Life's eternal, everywhere
Free yourself and be one step ahead
I'm confessing to no one
To no father and no son
Free inside we'll be one step ahead
 
 
Lost in a Void
War and murder, starving homeless people
Greed and hate, just take a look around
Dying land, a circle of destruction
Everybody steals from everyone

I am not a fool, what I say is the truth for all
Play against the rule and try to find a way

I don't want to be here
Lost in the void
Condemned and destroyed
I'm lost in the void
I don't want to be here
Lost in the void
Mislead and annoyed
I'm lost in the void
I don't want to be like this

In this world there is a lot confusion
Everybody has a different view
But there is a life beyond illusions
Can you take responsibility

I am not a fool, I know how I can turn around

Play against the rule and try to find a way

I don't want to be here
Lost in the void
Condemned and destroyed
I'm lost in the void
I don't want to be here
Lost in the void
Mislead and annoyed
I'm lost in the void
I don't want to be like this
 
 
Mouth of Greed
Hey you, you wanna know what time it is
You could say it's too late for you, that's how it is

It's the time of the superhuman intellectual
And we learn how to switch our hearts off
Get it while we can

Into the mouth of greed
A demon hard to feed
No way to turn away
You're in the mouth of greed

Into the mouth of greed
Just satisfy your needs
Too hard to turn away
You're in the mouth of greed

We know that all we have is more we need
We think success is when we can compete

And we vote for our leaders and we let them rape our land
In the name of our stupid life style
Get it while we can

Into the mouth of greed
A demon hard to feed
No way to turn away
You're in the mouth of greed

Into the mouth of greed
Just satisfy your needs
Too hard to turn away
You're in the mouth of greed

It's the time when the supermodel meets her superman
They will learn how to switch their hearts off
Get it while they can

Into the mouth of greed
A demon hard to feed
No way to turn away
You're in the mouth of greed

Into the mouth of greed
Just satisfy your needs
Too hard to turn away
You're in the mouth of greed
 
 
Lord of the Flies
This world's following to the dark lord of the flies

So lost, set in this world, this island here in space
We've found a way to bring it down
It took us ages to become what we are now
But progress seems to turn around

This world's following to the dark lord of the flies

We're lost, morality's a long forgotten term
Just ego shooters run this place
Where is the glue to hold together what we had
Society does miss a lace

Here comes the lord of flies
That lead the world astray
No more the sun will shine
However you may pray

Here comes the lord of flies
Takes innocence away
We won't find back for sure (no more)
We're going down this way

Narration:
The lord of flies speaks in the hearts of those
Who lost all their love and compassion
Shameless in unending greed they rape the land
And steal from the world 'till our last sigh is made

This world's following to the dark lord of the flies

Here comes the lord of flies
That lead the world astray
No more the sun will shine
However you may pray

Here comes the lord of flies
Takes innocence away
We won't find back for sure (no more)
We're going down this way

No more, we wouldn't learn, like actors on a stage
The final curtain's 'bout to fall
Yes, evil's in ourselves, our choice is always wrong
'Cause we forgot where we came from
