Track Name: Set on fire
Set on Fire

A little spark is all it takes
Set on fire
To let this place go down in flames
Set on fire
And you’ve got plenty up your sleeve
Set on fire
To make this world a burning hell
Set on fire

And on and on and on
You won’t stop until you’re done

Fire
You add fuel to the fire
Set on Fire
You add fuel to the fire
You’re drenched in gasoline
Soaked to your skin

You’ll get more than your fingers burned
Set on fire
And I am sure that day will come
Set on fire
Then you’ll reap what you have sown
Set on fire
A fire starter on the run
Set on fire

And on and on and on and on
You won’t stop until you’re done

Fire…

And on and on and on and on
I hope you burn before you’re done

Fire…
Track Name: Gimme more
Gimme more

I'm never ever satisfied
I'm never ever satisfied

A voracious mouth is hard to feed
I am full up and still I eat
Just throw away what I don't need
I'm never ever satisfied

I have enough and to spare
I love to hoard, don't like to share
Where it all comes from, I just don't care
I'm never ever satisfied

Gimme more, gimme more, gimme more now,
Gimme more, gimme more, gimme more now,
We’re all greedy bastards feeling disadvantaged somehow
Grab it all but don't take it from me, no!

So all the weak are left behind
We rip them off and rob them blind
The world’s unfair but I don’t mind
I'm never ever satisfied

A voracious mouth is hard to feed
I am full up and still I eat
Just throw away what I don't need
I'm never ever satisfied

Gimme more…
Track Name: Misfit
Misfit

Straight down the mainstream
Go with the flow
Just like driftwood
Humdrum clones

In uniforms you take you orders
Subtle wrapped in trends and style
Still you think you’re independent
Your fake freedom ain’t worthwhile

No, I ain’t part of your scene
And I don’t try to fit in

So concerned ‘bout your appearance
A perfect look is all you need
So you judge books by their covers
‘cause you are unable to read

No, I ain’t part of your scene
And I don’t try to fit in
I wanna be myself
No one else
Don’t wanna be like you

Straight down the mainstream
Go with the flow
I watch you pass by
From the safe shore

I maybe strange but you are scary
When you sway to the same tune
All your plastic instant heroes
They will be forgotten soon

No, I ain’t part of your scene…
Track Name: Get going!
Get going!

You better hurry up boy, don’t be late
Time flies and life won’t wait
Get going, get going

Hey Boy
Snap out of it
Come on
You gotta get a grip
Let’s go
Keep your chin up
Run, run, run boy, just don’t stop

Gain ground and don’t look back
Make headway off the beaten track
Don’t get lost, you’ll be dead last
You run, run, run, but you get nowhere fast

You better hurry up boy, don’t be late
Time flies and life won’t wait
Get going, get going
On and on and on
Take your chance, don’t hesitate
Time flies and life won’t wait
Get going, get going
On and on and on

Hey Boy
Where do you go?
Come on
Don’t tell us you don’t know
Let’s go
Straight to the top
Run, run, run boy, just don’t stop

Rat race day in, day out
You realize what this is all about
Nice guys always finish last
You run, run, run, but you get nowhere fast

You better hurry up boy…

Get going, get going
You gotta be second to none
Get going, get going boy
Get going, get going
And waste you whole life on the run
Get going, get going
On and on and on and on and on and on and on

You better hurry up boy…
Track Name: Misery
Misery

You’re down and so damn low
Stop complaining, stop complaining
I just don’t wanna know
Stop complaining, stop complaining

You always hang your heads in sorrow
Your face is one big frown
It seems you get your satisfaction
When you drag other people down

You cry yourself to sleep
Stop complaining, stop complaining
But I can’t stand the weep
Stop complaining, stop complaining

Go ahead and paint your world in pitch black
To be scared ‘cause gloom is all you see
Stoke your fears and turn them into
Another self-fulfilling prophecy

You won’t ever drag me down

Misery, get off my back
Misery
Misery, leave me be
Misery
Misery, get off my back
Misery
Misery, leave me be
Misery loves company

Always the same old story
Stop complaining, stop complaining
It is so deadly boring
Stop complaining, stop complaining

Don’t bother me, I will not listen
You drive me crazy with your moan and groan
Your sorrows shared are sorrows doubled
So just leave me alone

You won’t ever drag me down

Misery…
Track Name: Here I am
Here I am

Here I am
Still ready to rock because I can
Let yourself go
Because we’ll have a perfect time
Have a perfect time

Here I am
If you wanna freak out I’m your man
Don’t put the blame on me
Because I can’t control myself
Can’t control myself

Some people say
I make them feel good
Some people say
I’m dangerous
Some people say
I am addictive
Some people say
I blew their mind

Here I am
Always by your side like an old friend
You can count on me
Because I’ll never let you down
Never let you down

Some people say…
Track Name: Kill your TV
Kill your TV

Kill your TV
Before it drives you crazy
Break the remote control
Pull the plug and burn it all

Bad actors, fake stars and reality shows
The quota is high when the standard is low
You can zap through the channels, shit is all you’ll see
And music is no longer on MTV

Kill your TV, kill your TV
Break the remote control
Kill your TV, kill your TV
Pull the plug and burn it all

Kill your TV
Before you get too lazy
It’s built to mesmerize
It fries your brain right through your eyes

They just sell lies and stupid ring tones
You become an idiot with an annoying cell phone
You’re glued to the TV, you even pay for this shit
Such a waste of time, get away from it

Kill your TV…
Track Name: For a second
For a second

Come take my hand
Let’s try to make this moment last forever
I ain’t scared
As long as you and I stand close together

Destroy the clock
Stop marching to its steady beat

For a second
How I wish the world stood still
For a second
Right now

One day, one week
What are we waiting for?
One month, one year
Do we just hope for more?
One day, one week
The precious time is gone
One year, one life
So we regret and carry on

For a second…

Come take my hand
Let’s try to make this moment last forever
I ain’t scared
As long as you and I stand close together

Time flies so fast
A memory is all that’s last
And we can’t bring back time

For a second…
Track Name: School of hard knocks
School of hard knocks

I’m black and blue
The sound of the gong’s still ringing in my ear
You shout at me but I still won’t hear

My head feels numb
But the pain is slowly creeping up my neck
I’m counted out but I know I will come back

I feel good, as I get back on my feet
Forget the pain, it’s time to bite the hand that beats

Hit me, strike me, bash me, beat me
Scapegoat no longer
You can try, you won’t defeat me
I just grow stronger
I’ll stand my ground
Let’s go and do another round

Another round
And I take another punch right to my head
It’s dark again and I hit the floor like dead

I’m down and out
And I can hear you counting up to ten
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 – I’m back on my feet again

I feel good, as I get back on my feet
Forget the pain, it’s time to bite the hand that beats

Hit me, strike me…

Hit me, strike me, bash me, beat me
Hit me, strike me, bash me, beat me
1, 2, 3, 4, 5

I feel good, as I get back on my feet
Forget the pain, it’s time to bite the hand that beats

Hit me, strike me…

I’ll stand my ground
We’ll go on when I come around
Track Name: So pretty
So pretty

High heels and endless legs
Gracious gate and sexy back

When she walks down the street
All the men are at her feet
They stop their talks and turn their heads
‘cause she’s so pretty

So pretty, so pretty
She’s so pretty and she knows
So pretty, so pretty
She’s so pretty

Perfect body, long black hair
Mysterious, exotic air

She winks at them with almond-eyes
Still the men don’t realize
That she ain’t what she seems to be
‘cause she’s so pretty

So pretty…

Dressed to kill
A tourists’ toy
Sell your body
They will buy
Oh, pretty ladyboy

So pretty…
Track Name: Down with the boys
Down with the Boys

Down with the boys,
I am down with the boys
Sooner or later I’ll get out there
Down with the boys

Another pill, another drink
Another wasted day
We pretend that we have fun
While we fade away

What goes up must come down
We’re ‘bout to hit ground
We can’t fly high forever
But sobriety is scaring me
So I party on
’cause I feel alone and so disconnected

Down with the boys…

I’ll try to keep your name in mind
At least for today
I guess that we won’t meet again
So it don’t matter anyway

What goes up must come down
We’re ‘bout to hit ground
We can’t fly high forever
But sobriety is scaring me
So I party on
’cause I feel alone and so disconnected

Down with the boys…
Track Name: The kids want rock'n'roll
The kids want rock’n’roll

The kids want rock’n’roll
Sweaty people in crowded shows
They feel the fire burning in their soul
The kids want rock’n’roll
The kids want rock’n’roll

It’s too good to be true
Hey crazy punk rock kid
How you rock the pit

Now we are on the stage
And all of you will stay
Until we stop to play

Oh what a crazy night
It ain’t healthy but it feels so right, so right
Let’s sing the chorus once again
That’s the way we like to entertain

The kids want fun
They love live shows
All they need
All they need is rock and roll

We rock together all night long
We’re just in it for the fun
Let’s party ‘til the last ones gone

Dancing, shouting and drinking
Girls moving hips I can see your smile
I love your crazy style

Oh what a crazy night
Intoxication feels so right
Another wrong chord again
But it won’t mess up the refrain

The kids want fun…

Oh what a crazy night
It ain’t healthy but it feels so right, so right
Let’s sing the chorus once again
That’s the way we like to entertain

The kids want fun…
