Track Name: BACK TO THE 90'S
september 91, first day at junior high
never had so much fun, now recklessness is far behind
thesedays our lives are such a bore
everything was better before
we're back to the 90's!
Track Name: (you make me feel) IRON LION ZION
back to school again, i
feel the pain, i
just wonder why i'm here
if love is an abstraction
i sure feel the attraction
she's repeating the year

so let's make it real, you make me feel
IRON, i can give you very hard pain
LION, at the top of the food chain
ZION, like a dream in my brain

it's like the world is shrinking
when your heart starts beating
for the very first time
she likes bob marley
she might be kinda lazy
just exactly the way i am
Track Name: OUR LIVES BECAME SLAVERY
time flies fast and one day we just wake up realizing tomorrow we'll be dead
here lie our memories, things we fucked up since we lost the thread
our lives became slavery

I never wanted to be here but i have to take it
then when the end is near we'all fight to make it

because we try hard everyday
we keep on going every way
we're in denial, suicidal
Track Name: UNEMPLOYMENT
working is a crime against humanity
wasting time for almost nothing is insanity
I don't wanna work anymore I don't care
as long as I can get payments from social welfare

we slaved away
call it a day
useless effort leads to renouncement
we'll be dead before retirement

that's my ethics
my politics
Track Name: I DON'T CARE AT ALL
take a look around in silence
think i'm gonna keep my distance
from that place, just in case...

I don't care about who you are
and I don't care about your new car
how much K€ you worth and what you did for it
I don't give a shit
life is not a competition
crushing others' not an ambition
you rise up from my fall
and I don't care at all

you brag about social success
when I am in total distress
ain't impress, so pointless
Track Name: POLAROID PICTURES
first time I saw you on tv you were jailbait, so innocent
then I found hot pics of you on the internet, by accident
I dig the way you move your hips, the color of your lips

you say you wanna party in the usa, it's quite ok
you say you want me to drive your heart into the night, it's quite alright
I dig the way you move your hips, the color of your lips

I wanna see your polaroid pictures
your perfect features, your songs are scriptures
I live by you, me I wanna wanna be with you
Track Name: CHICKEN DESTROY
50% chicken / 50% shit

can't wash it green
breaded bones and skin
pieces of shit
children like it
Track Name: CINDY
gotta runaway

strange handshakes at night in front of her place
a trafficker fella
trailer trash with cheap makeup on the face
a modern cinderella

her boyfriend's dad is nothing but a drunk
he said 'go sweep you little whore!'
until his own son freaked out
dragged him along the floor, yellin'

don't touch Cindy, daddy
Track Name: SORRY
I've never wanted to become jaded but I am today
I feel frustrated my heart expected to live another way
I lay down waiting for an answer that never comes

many friends are gone the other gave up now i'm all alone
'I had so much fun' will be my last words write'em on my stone
I'm tired of waiting for an answer that will never come

give me strength to carry on, i'll have another go
I feel clueless, forgive my weakness if I die tomorrow
Track Name: THIS IS THE END
I’ve been standing here for decades but now it's over, this is the end
I feel no fear and decay's coming closer by human hand

I've faced the rain, the sad days of life
even the violent storms never broke me but made me stronger
I've felt the pain of a carved heart, 2 letters, forever
but I'll never forget the day you cried on my shoulder

I've never wanted to be a part of this concrete society
I'm getting colder from my head to my feet, finally free
