Track Name: music is a weapon
20 something cigarettes
and a pen are all it takes
to change the world
to change anything that we ever wanted

the revolution is now
I am writing it down

And I know we can change it all

we can break walls with words
we can destroy nations with letters
create barricades of sound
music is a weapon

we can bring governments down
with drumbeats and notes
we can bring governments down
music is a weapon

(sadly) it’s not the only one
but music is a weapon
weapon of mass liberation
better than any religion

a revolution without dancing is
a revolution not worth having

to resist is to create
to create is to resist
Track Name: social determinism and the anthill
I AM A DYING WORKER ANT
CRUSHED BY ALL THE WEIGHT OF HIERARCHY
(AND) WHILE WE’RE DYING DOWN HERE
QUEENS AND KINGS FLY ABOVE WITH THEIR WINGS

SOME OF US GOT WINGS
SOME OF US JUST DON’T
WHATEVER YOUR DREAMS
YOU MIGHT NOT GET WHAT YOU WANT

I AM A DYING WORKER ANT
LEFT FOR DEAD WITHIN THE FACTORY
WITH THE MACHINES STILL RUNNING
THOSE ARE BEASTS NO WORKER ALONE CAN KILL

WE WENT ON STRIKE FOR DOZENS OF WEEKS
MANY ANTS CAME BACK ‘CAUSE THEY WERE TOO HUNGRY
WHILE KINGS AND QUEENS WERE BUSY LAUGHING
‘CAUSE THEY HAD TOO MANY LEAVES TO EAT

OUR ANTHILL IS ROTTEN
FROM TOP TO BOTTOM
WE GOT TO CHANGE THIS WORLD
FROM TOP TO BOTTOM

SO IF YOU FEEL LIKE AN ANT
SING ALONG MAN
YOU’RE NOT AN ANT
Track Name: memento mori
take that pill or die
don’t use butter when cooking
look after your body
watch your weight, watch your weight

find a girl and marry her
two children and a dog not more
on Sunday, mow the grass
always check the door is closed

never forget to sleep
never forget breathing
the harder you work,
they say, the happier you get

don’t forget you are not able to fly
so stop trying to commit suicide

stop masturbating
only five cigarettes a day
shave everyday of the week
believe in God, he could exist

never ask too many questions
always be nice and polite
try to get some money
and save some for the gravedigging

don’t forget you are not able to fly
so stop trying to commit suicide

they won’t take our lives tonight (X 1,000)

don’t take that pill and die
and please forget to sleep
don’t close your door tonight
sometimes just stop breathing
please never mow the grass
and never be polite
don’t save the slightest penny for the gravedigging

try to commit suicide
remember you are able to fly
Track Name: we are not dead
we can just beg
we can just pray
we have no choice but to obey

we can just kneel
we can just bend
for the execution day only must we stand straight

but we are not dead
we are not dead
we are just slaves
the slaves you don’t want to save

we can just sweat
we can just pay
pay the price of the world you live in

we can just fail
we can just fear
we are 27 millions and you don’t care

but we are not dead
we are not dead
we are just slaves
the slaves you don’t want to save

no one cares
no one cares at all

we beg
we wait
we don’t rest and we don’t dream

we sing
we scream
slavery’s not dead
Track Name: cash/crash
this thing between you and I
this (thin) line we cannot cross

from stranger to stranger tell me now
this distance, how much does it cost?

we never consider looking at one another
We never consider simply hugging each other

though our shadows merge together on the pavement
We never meet the other’s eyes except for cash or crash

I can see bodies piled-up like cars
hands and feet crushed like metal
blood spilling like gasoline
there must be another way than crashing

we never consider talking to each other
We never consider considering the other

just one look, just one glance,
just one blink, just one eye contact
no more crash, no more cash, no more crash
no more cash, no more cash or crash
Track Name: the edge of the world
I’m standing at the top of a seventeen story building
and beneath my feet, the whole city’s burning
I’m standing at the edge of a bridge that leads nowhere
is it unfinished or broken, who really cares?

I remember when all we could see was snow
I remember when you and me were not at war

I’m standing at the corner of an empty dead end street
empty of souls that’s for sure, but quite full of dead bodies
I’m standing at the edge, the edge of the world
yeah the edge the world that’s all it seems to be

I remember when all we could see was snow
I remember when you and me were not at war

I miss the time when we could play football in the snow
I miss the time when we didn’t have to watch for landmines
Track Name: monkey
monkey think, monkey do

everything they forbid
you do it anyway
you think that you are free
but you’re building up barriers

stop reacting, start acting
freedom is when you create your own life style

monkey think, monkey do

opposing everything
is way too easy
now take some time to think
about what you really need

then follow your own lead
do everything it takes
don’t hesitate to meditate
and bang their walls when needed

stop reacting, start acting
freedom is when you create your own life style

stop reacting
let’s start acting
Track Name: H.O.S.T.A.G.E.S.
we are hostages
we are hostages

brands are branded on our bodies
we are hostages

we are all the victims
of this huge dictatorship
that is called advertising
buying deceptive dreams we don’t need

we are all hostages
you and me, hostages

mind the crap on the billboard
mind the crap on the radio
on tv shows, on mobile phones,
on every street, on every screen
oh yeah

now the Crap is everywhere
seems like nobody cares
they even bought the word happiness, yeah

we are all hostages
you and me

H O S T A G E S

ladies and gentlemen
this is sliver’s advertising campaign

160.4 ads a day
350 000 ads until you’re 18

we got to kill the billboard
we got to kill the billboard today
Track Name: kamikaze / Rorschach (blood is blood)
KAMIKAZE

all the other insects they hate me
they say I’m weak, I’m not mean, I’m not even angry
all the other insects think I’m a shame
they say I am a corrupted specimen

all the others say I am adopted
they say I should crave blood like babies suck milk
all the other insects think I’m a shame
they say that I should stop thinking by myself

so everyday and every night and every hour
they transmit me a message
and everyday and every night and every hour
the message says, it says:

“the enemy is everyone but your own kin
and now you got to steal, and now you got to kill
for the survival of the race, you got to be a kamikaze”

but I got wings, I can fly away
I got wings, I can do it my own way
I got wings, I don’t have to join the army

the enemy is nobody
the enemy is nobody

the enemy is nobody
you got to be an anti-kamikaze

banish all armies


RORSCHACH (BLOOD IS BLOOD)

my uniform is Rorschached with blood
a butterfly?
an atomic mushroom or what not?

it’s to you to decide
it depends on the size
on the size of the smokescreens
that are filling up your eyes

my universe is Rorschached with blood
a brand new planet earth?
a child swollen stomach or what not?
a round and shiny sun?
an exploding landmine?

it’s to you to decide
'cause seen from my side:

blood is blood
it always looks the same
blood is blood
it always tastes the same

smokescreens here
smokescreens there
smokescreens here
smoke and tv screens everywhere

blood is blood
