Track Name: The Threat
Fuck you, and fuck everything you’ve ever stood for, and everything you’ve ever said and done and drawn and thought, this is not a threat, it’s a promise. I had to turn my back to see who’s gonna stab me, I had to burn some bridges to see where I belong. When my voice was the only thing they left me, I spit in their faces and said: United and strong.
Track Name: Up Against The World
You wanna tell me how to live my life, how to waste my days, how to spend my nights, how to fight my enemies, how to buy my friends. You're just showing what I’m up against. You wanna tell me that the boat is full, that the faggots and gypsies gonna ruin it all, but you're not a racist, because you got a black friend. You're just showing what I’m up against. You wanna tell me how to dress for the occasion, if there is nothing left to love, I can still love my nation. And everything looks shitty from the place I stand, but all I can see is what I’m up against. Up against the world - I can see what I can do. Up against the world - today it's me, tomorrow you. Up against the world - until nobody's left. Up against the world - no fucking future to regret. You wanna tell me that I fucked up my life, leaving everyone behind driving through the night, shaking hands with people I barely know, praying to a god I don’t believe in that make it through this show. I never asked for another opinion about my place in the world, the world we live in, closed my eyes, pretended that I’m okay, I never did and I will not start today. Up against the world - I can see what I can do. Up against the world - today it's me, tomorrow you. Up against the world - until nobody's left. Up against the world - no fucking future to regret.
Track Name: Colorblind
I walk the road laid out in front of me, I work the hours I’ve been given, I choose my battles wisely, I work until I am forgiven. Never learned otherwise, until I taught myself, I was born colorblind, and I will die this way! No colors, colorblind, no peace, just solidarity. No colors, colorblind, no borders, just you and me. The clock strikes 33 and I am right there, where I wanna be. When a fat, drunk, jobless bastard, who beats his dog and his family is suddenly worried about christian values: Welcome to Germany. I know this world is going down, but I am right there, where I wanna be. No colors, colorblind, no peace, just solidarity. No colors, colorblind, no borders, just you and me.
Track Name: Shirt And Jeans
No one can live forever. I will live forever. Reliving the punk rock dreams I had when I was 15, one by one. I got plenty nights left to do this finally right, but this ain’t not the one. I know the witnesses all hate me, the evidence doesn’t speak for me, may the judges find me guilty, history will discharge me. One day, I will have to forgive everyone, but it will not be today. Just shirt and jeans, some shattered dreams, blood on concrete, no one can live forever. Just shirt and jeans, some shattered dreams, blood on concrete, no one can live forever. No one can live forever but I give it a try, I have lived like a fool, like a fool I will die, I will live forever. I paid the price with my face on the floor, I've never asked for this now I'm begging for more. Just shirt and jeans, some shattered dreams, blood on concrete, no one can live forever.
Track Name: The Storm
There’s a storm coming that won’t go away, if you close your eyes. (I can’t close my eyes.) My arrogance outweighs my fears, which are right in front of me, unaligned. I hold on tight to those memories. My enemies don’t wanna see me dead, my enemies are everything I have, this is not who I wanna be, but this is who I am. (Who I am.) Something tells me that you have given up, something tells me that this is not the end, yet. Think of the nights, you were laying awake, waiting for someone to save you, this city and this goddamn place, but I don’t give a shit about this fucked up place.
Track Name: Difference Between Us And Them
This is what I will leave behind in this world, after my last words were muttered and my body’s turned cold. This might not be much, not even close to enough, but I’ll hold on to it, because it’s all I got. But I refuse to die, when there are still deeds left undone. I will not explain, I’m not here to teach, if you don’t understand, this might be the wrong place. Empty hearts and empty hands go side by side so tell me where you stand, tell me where you stand. So tell me where you stand, which side you are on. Give me something to work with, just a straw to hold on. Just something that shows: You're not like the rest, that in the moment of failure, you still give it the best. This is what I will leave behind in this world, after my last words were muttered and my body’s turned cold. I know it's not much, and I know I worked hard, and I know you don’t got it, but it’s not for sale. But I refuse to die, when there are still deeds left undone. Remind me of the difference between us and them!
Track Name: Days Of Innocence
To those days of innocence, to those days that never seemed to end, until they finally went, no strings attached, no looking back. How much hope can I carry, how much is still left? Are my goals still as honest, are my intentions still the best? Do I still stand for the things I promised that would never change or am I just too blind to see that my dreams moved out of range? To those days of innocence, to those days that never seemed to end, until they finally went, no strings attached, no looking back. Back to the days when it didn’t matter, that the road to failure never runs straight,
if we’ll go down we'll go down together, so there's a thing that will never change. And still there never seems to be, a reason good enough to stay. To those days of innocence, to those days that never seemed to end, until they finally went, no strings attached, no looking back. Let’s raise our glass to the death of regret. And still there never seems to be, a reason good enough to stay. To those days of innocence, to those days that never seemed to end, until they finally went, no strings attached, no looking back.
Track Name: Survivor's Guilt
I had my shot at the fucking stars, but instead of counting dollars I'm counting scars. Somewhere along the road I looked back to what I've built. What looks like regret is a life with survivor’s guilt. I have my anger to get me through the days, for the hope that's left me, I’ve got the bitterness that stays. Suffering will protect me from the emptiness until I am chocking slowly to death on survivor’s guilt. Imagine, you get your shot at the stars, but instead of counting dollars you're counting scars. Imagine, there is no afterlife, it's just suffering until you forget to survive. Imagine, this is all you get: One shot, one miss, one final step. Imagine, survival is luck, but to keep on living is tough as fuck. I curse every night from my birth ‘til my salvation, I will make sure that I’m the only witness, when I’ll take myself out of the equation. If there's a god, he'll have to beg for my forgiveness.
Track Name: The Promise
This is my final stand, and I regret not having any answers to the questions I once lived for. Maybe I wanted to little and gave too much. Feels more like I never gave enough. So I take this fight to a place I stand a chance, but I’ve got nothing to fight for, look at my empty hands! I am fucking broke, but got a heart of gold, won’t get a dollar for a thing that has already been sold. I owe you nothing, we owe you nothing. I still believe, but sometimes it’s hard, (So fucking hard) to see through the lies. Even the devil will stop selling his goods, when nobody buys. I don’t wanna be known for my wisdom, I don’t wanna be known for my strength, I just wanna be known as the captain, who’s never abandoned his men. I owe you nothing, we owe you nothing.
