Track Name: Wake-Up Call
WAKE-UP CALL

This is your wake-up call
You gonna kill us all
How many meltdowns do you need
You can’t control the flame you feed
This is your wake-up call

Burry all atomic waste
Out of sight out of mind
Leave it to future generations
Maybe they will find
A way to finally get rid of
Our toxic legacy
So let’s all enjoy the comforts
Of this “clean” technology

This is your wake-up call…

Whitewash all statistics
Single cases trivialized
Praise the safety like a mantra
We’ll forget that it’s all lies
You just have to keep it secret
When radiation is set free
And we all enjoy the comforts
Of this “safe” technology

This is your wake-up call…

Fukushima, Chernobyl
Are memorials to show
This is a ticking timebomb
And we all know
We can’t just wait for the next
Worst case scenario
Shut them off, tear them down

This is your wake-up call…
Track Name: This Means War
THIS MEANS WAR

Get out of my way
I had a fucking day
I’m armed just like a ticking bomb
To blow up in your face
I am so fed up
But you still don’t stop
To play with fire, light the fuse
Until it burns me up

There is this rage I can’t ignore
It eats my soul
Now this means war
Shut the fuck up
‘Cause I can’t take it anymore

All systems overload
I’m about to explode
And you try to defuse this bomb
By cutting all the wires
You drive me fucking mad
And all I see is red
You better get out of my way
Before I lose my head

There is this rage I can’t ignore
It eats my soul
Now this means war…

I should calm down
And wipe off that frown
So I bite my lips bloody
Swallow my anger
And start to count

But there’s this rage I can’t ignore
It eats my soul, war
Now this means war…
Track Name: Deadlines
DEADLINES

They appeal and make pleas
They condemn and call for peace
Lip service, hollow words
All die away unheard

Another deadline has passed
This was so hard-won
Another red line’s been crossed
Still they’re marching on
They stand by helplessly
Solutions anyone?
Debating society

From red lines to deadlines
They just try to talk the war away

They accuse, they indict
With no capacity to act
They just name and they shame
They bear part of the blame

Another deadline has passed
This was so hard-won
Another red line’s been crossed
Still they’re marching on
They stand by helplessly
Solutions anyone?
Debating society

From red lines to deadlines…

They still debate
Just talk and wait
They seal their fate
As war goes on and on
Until it’s too late

From red lines to deadlines…
Track Name: No Pasarán!
NO PASARÁN!

Hey you fascist idiots
You’ll never get through
Take down your flags and banners
Back off and fuck you!

When you march we’ll be there
To stand in your way
When you shout we’ll scream
So you can’t be heard

We will fight and resist
Wherever you show up
Fight and resist ‘til you’re gone
We will fight and resist
Wherever you show up
Fight and resist
No pasarán!

Hey, all you worried assholes
Why are you so afraid
In fact you are quite scary
Idiots on parade

When you march we’ll be there
To stand in your way
When you shout we’ll scream
So you can’t be heard

We will fight and resist…

Hey, indifferent people
Speak up and join in
Come on, the more the better
This time we must win
We ain’t those to blame for
What happened back then
But we are those to care for
It doesn’t happen again

When they march we’ll be there
To stand in their way
When they shout we’ll scream
So they can’t be heard

We will fight and resist...
Track Name: Bye-Bye Babylon
BYE-BYE BABYLON

I hear your call but I move on
Just let me go, oh let me go
I used to love you Babylon
Now let me go, oh let me go
Your city lights burn in my eyes
You steal my sleep every night
It’s time to leave this all behind
Just let me go, oh let me go
I sneak out in the dawn
Before you grab me I’ll be gone
So I just keep going

1-2-3-4, I am on the run
And I just keep going
Gotta leave this burning Babylon
So I just keep going
I don’t look back ‘cause I am on the run
And I just keep going
Gotta leave this burning Babylon
So I just keep going on
I wanna make it on my own

I roamed your alleys far too long
Just let me go, oh let me go
To find a place I can call home
Now let me go, oh let me go
Your city beat just drives me mad
Give me some time to rest my head
But you keep me awake instead
Just let me go, oh let me go
I sneak out in the dawn
Before you grab me I’ll be gone
So I just keep going

1-2-3-4, I am on the run…

Bye-bye burning Babylon
Track Name: Silence
SILENCE

Stop the sirens
Peace and quiet
There’s no need for alert
No way back now
All decisions have been made
And so hand in hand we
Wait until the war is lost
Calm down, we’re almost there

Break the silence
It’s your last chance
Don’t leave quietly
Keep no secrets
There’s no need to dry my eyes
As I’m far too sad to cry
Still clinging to your hand
I just can’t let go now

The silence, the silence
The silence screams so loud
When the silence screams your name
It all comes back again
So much left unsaid
But no one left to blame

The rest is silence
War is over
A flat line on the screen
But peace is far away
When it gets sad certainty
I close my eyes and
See you how you used to be
That’s what I keep in mind

The silence, the silence…

When the silence screams your name
It all comes back again
What did you try to say
Before you went away?
I hope that you find peace
Sleep well without the dreams
Forget about the past
Feel free at last

The silence, the silence…
Track Name: Memories
MEMORIES

A photograph in a frame
The man on the wall
Just a face with a name
Every time I explain
I paint your picture
With stories and memories

Oh how you would have loved
To watch them learn how to walk
Watch them learn how to talk
When they ask who you were
I say a son and father, like I am now

From father to son we pass it on
So we never forget where we belong
Cause the memory is all that remains

So sad and so sorry
That you can’t be here
Oh I wish you could see us now
So sad and so sorry
That you can’t be here
But I’m sure that you’re with us somehow

I come by from time to time
A place of remembrance
When memories decline
And I try to recall
Like making out little details
On a faded photo

From father to son we pass it on
So we never forget where we belong
Cause the memory is all that remains

So sad and so sorry…

From father to son we pass it on
So we never forget where we belong
And we will never be gone
Cause we are all kept in fond memory

So sad and so sorry…
