Rock the plank till I’m shivering and shaking. Vicious sharks wait with jaws open wide. I was never one meant for heartbreaking, but I live without any doubts. I don’t want to see your face no more. Nagging and nagging, you’ve turned into a bore. Biting my tongue. You’re grinding my gears. How can you live with all of these fears? You bring your loved ones to tears. I might get sorry for these words I’m saying now, but you just have to admit that you’re acting like a cow. Your fear keeps pushing you towards depression, so take your dark thoughts and get the hell out of here. I don’t want to see your face no more. Nagging and nagging, you’ve turned into a bore. Biting my tongue. You’re grinding my gears. How can you live with all of these fears? You bring your loved ones to tears. Get out and leave me the fuck alone. Get out and leave me the fuck alone. I don’t want to see your face no more. Nagging and nagging, you’ve turned into a bore. Biting my tongue. You’re grinding my gears. How can you live with all of these fears? You bring your loved ones to tears.

Death tolls sell papers I said I saw the victims. You quoted me all wrong. Suddenly I found myself covered in their blood. You only hear sensation when things have gone very wrong. Death tolls will sell your papers, so you just sell your soul. So how can you sleep when you know you betray the thousands that read your bullshit? Take a look in the rear-view mirror. See the shit that you’ve left behind. Is there really no objection that has come across your mind? Funeral, an event. To you it seems like heaven sent. What would you do if it’d be you walking behind the hearse? So how can you sleep when you know you betray the thousands that read your bullshit? The bullshit that you wrote. I ignore it, but others won’t. Talk of the town, built on fucking lies. Can’t seem to see clear, anywhere I veer this vessel built on hate. I guess it is too late to stop the presses now. The trucks are all leaving, covering more ground, spreading like a plague. The headlines full of lies to feed the hungry eyes. So how can you sleep when you know you betray the thousands that read your bullshit?

Tilting the Hourglass She said: “I want to change the world, before it changes me.” Now, I remember the time when I was so naive. I thought that I could be anyone but them. I think that I oppose. Truth is I’m blending in. Have you lost the will to make a change? Then get your act together and begin. I should stop watching that TV, ‘cause there’s no TV show that seems to interest me. It feels like water in my lungs. I am immobilized and the pills from my doctor seem to bring me down. Have you lost the will to make a change? Don’t care who needed help? You just turned your face away. I don’t know if I’m turning this around. Am I turning you around? But I know I will never let you down. I will never let you down. Have you lost the will to make a change? Then get your act together and begin. I look through the hourglass. I look through the hourglass, baby.

Vatican approved Get your dirty hands right off of my neck. I hope that this will one day fill you with regret. All this secrecy and your celibacy is becoming a burden. Now don’t you dare touch me. All this time we all knew but you just didn’t have the guts to say it to our face. Raping schoolboys will ignite your fall from grace. The dirty priest is there, Vatican approved. You know it happened in Bruges, or in a church near you. Defenceless and ashamed, there’s no one there for you. “Let’s just keep this quiet, then no one will hurt you.” No one will hurt you. No one will hurt you. Like fire their rage will burn you down. Like the Devil that you warn us for will come knocking on your door. Will you ever sleep? How will you ever sleep? Will you ever sleep? All this time we all knew but you just didn’t have the guts to say it to our face. Raping schoolboys will ignite your fall from grace. Your fall from grace. Ratzinger, what do you have to say? Why do you have to pray? What do you have to pray for?

Falling Dominoes Location: North Africa. Mubarak is on trial tonight. The people in mass protests. It’s bend or break, better step down. If this could be the ignition, then the masses would oppose hunger, thought control and oppression and the world would finally change. Finally change, wake up from this nightmare. The fire is spreading across the continent like the Black Death. Now the violence will erupt. This rock will break the government. If this could be the ignition, then the masses would oppose hunger, thought control and oppression and the world would finally change.

Devotion 02:58
Devotion It’s getting clear lately I can’t let you go, but we’re getting closer to the end. I hate these signs of aging as they start to show. We’re getting closer to the end, I know. How can I let you go? I wouldn’t fucking know. You were there for me when my father died to support my brother and my mom. You raised me as an honest man, not some clown. You kept my feet on the ground, you know. How can I let you go? I wouldn’t fucking know. Where can I find the strength? I don’t know. You have taught me so much: laying bricks, mowing lawns, tying my laces. Every day anew I could depend on you. I can’t let go. I can’t do this alone. Alone.

Papparazzo asshole Just walk away from all these insecurities you have. Don’t try to be the person that you’re not. They’re building up all these expectations. Can’t you see that you just don’t need all this bullshit? It’s okay to be an outcast. Don’t struggle to belong. Don’t wait till you’re a victim of their society. If not, then I will question your sobriety. Holding on to what has been won’t get you far. Time has come to move on and leave all this prejudice behind. I can’t wait to see their face when I walk in dressed like a fucking mortal sin. I know it’s wrong to hate, but with them it’s just my fate. You see, I won’t struggle to belong. This class rebellion is building up. Ignore the fact that they have chicks and money all they want. Just try to be the person that you are. ‘Cause they’re building up all these expectations. Can’t you see that you just don’t need all this bullshit? Holding on to what has been won’t get you far. Time has come to move on and leave all this prejudice behind.

Subconscious revolt We will pursue justice and we will not conform. All this talk of freedom may never free us all. At least it starts an idea, an anarchistic thought. So now we’re scratching the surface with all these questions we have. On my tongue it is burning. A never-ending fight. Waiting hours and hours in time. In my life… So now we’re scratching the surface with all these questions we have. On my tongue it is burning. A never-ending fight. We’ll come back to re-ignite the fire. A fire so strong it will burn down their system of hate, of money and power. Of money and power. We’re building and building, then waiting before we explode. Before we explode.

Put your Dollar where your mouth is To think that you once stood for real and honest change. Do you know what it’s like to feel the anger burn inside of you if you don’t achieve what you had set out to do? Do you know what makes a man? He’d just stick to his plan despite all the setbacks he should face. What are you fighting for? A second term or the change that you’ve promised them before? Now tell me… See I respect you, and I know that it’s hard to clean up the mess of that Bush retard. The Republicans are not waging opposition, they just want to obstruct whatever’s not their vision. Just think of Rosa Parks and where you would have been if she had not persisted, had decided to give in. We want the changes that you’ve promised. This is an insult to everyone who did vote.

Rule like a God, die like the rest With eyes open we’re swallowing the lies of who’s in power, veiled in thin disguise. But I won’t be corrupted. No, I won’t back down. We will stand firm. Yes, we will stand our ground. It feels like dying. I waited for everyone to raise their voices in disgust. No longer will we remain to live in hiding our in shame. Our time has come to rise against these pigs, just like Sandino did ‘til ’34. Even though he was murdered just to shut him up, he inspired thousands to keep fighting for his cause. It feels like dying. I waited for everyone to raise their voices in disgust. No longer will we remain to live in hiding our in shame. So I will carry home the flag they’ve tried to burn despite all that it means and stands for. Overcome the prejudice and reunite. I waited for everyone to raise their voices in disgust. No longer will we remain to live in hiding our in shame. Managua’s saying grace.

Putting music in its place I guess that you must be a fucking music noob if you think that we’ll agree with you. I guess that you’re a bore, a fucking culture whore. I invite you to try and mute our drums. We’ll never obey you. We’ll go against the rules. Frankly I’m plain sick of you. Your stupid plans will just erase our music scene. We’ll start a riot if you call the police. I think you have no clue what you’re about to do. Resonate like a shell. 100 decibels? I guess it’s time to raise some hell. You just don’t see the fucking effort we’ve put in building this scene up brick after brick after brick. I think you have no clue of what you’re up to. Impose your fucking law, but we won’t listen. Just let the music live!

On common terms I’ve come to terms with myself now. Your words have left me unbroken. You said you need me to fit in, or I’ll be out on the doorstep. I cannot walk this walk, I cannot talk this talk. Can’t you understand you’re wrong? This piece of dignity is all that I have left in me. Today won’t bring me down, I’ll survive. I will emerge a new man. I am out on myself now. A grown up man, but still haunted by expectations from family. They don’t understand I’m not like them. I cannot walk this walk, I cannot talk this talk. Can’t you understand you’re wrong? This piece of dignity is all that I have left in me. Today won’t bring me down, I’ll survive. I will emerge a new man. I will emerge a new man.
