You pierce my eyes, with your blinding smile. You show your whitened teeth to hide your vile. Your glossy lips, your clear blue eyes. They cannot hide the maggots and the flies. The facade of good looks, hides the thieves and the crooks. It´s all about appearance... I see the cracks in your blinding smile. You live your life in total denial. Can´t help wonder what hides under your skin. What lies underneath, under the surface. I see all the dirt, I see all the pain That lies underneath, under the surface Your suit and tie make you look nice. You sell your bullshit with your perfect lies. Your hair looks sharp. Your talk is smooth. But it´s no use ´cause I can see the truth. The facade of good looks, hides the thieves and the crooks. It´s all about appearance... I hear the lies, you told them all. But one day you will take the fall Can´t help wonder what hides under your skin. What lies underneath, under the surface. I see all the dirt, I see all the pain That lies underneath, under the surface

Death is knocking on my door Do not hesitate and please, do come in. Be my guest and stay some more Read my books, you appear in most of them Do not fool me with illnesses that remain reluctantly unpronounced Do not trick me with inconvenience, left alone to perish in solitude Death, my friend, you're no stranger to me Death, my friend... Don't want to be taken slowly Don't want to forget who I am Just wipe your feet and be welcome Don't want to be humiliated Don't want to loose my dignity Just wipe your feet and be welcome Do not put me in a bed, surrounded by really old, drooling kids Don't you dare to let me pay for useless hours in fancy clinics Death, my friend, you're no stranger to me Death, my friend... Don't want to be taken slowly Don't want to forget who I am Just wipe your feet and be welcome Don't want to be humiliated Don't want to loose my dignity Just wipe your feet and be welcome

Running from the war on terror, Attempting to flee sectarian and ethnic hatred. Kids who've seen too much for one lifetime escaped when death squads took their family part of the spoils of war and being raped traumatized by bloodshed and war crime Paid to embark on a treacherous odyssey Thousands of miles through hostile lands No rest for the wrecked Wandering in search of soil to embrace Soil to embrace Now they are trapped, broke and hungry. Non-stop living in fear. Casualties of moral cowardice. Exhausted, no shelter from the cold and rain, the stench of sickness and despair, It is a miserable, feral existence. Victims of a war their government helped to unleash Rejected, abandoned and adrift: how can they cope? Victims of a world where authorities do as they please Rejected, abandoned and adrift inside fortress Europe Now they are trapped, broke and hungry. Non-stop living in fear. Casualties of moral cowardice. Exhausted, no shelter from the cold and rain, the stench of sickness and despair, It is a miserable, feral existence. Paid to embark on a treacherous odyssey Thousands of miles through hostile lands No rest for the wrecked Wandering in search of soil to embrace Soil to embrace Now they are trapped, broke and hungry. Non-stop living in fear. Casualties of moral cowardice. Returning home is no option, even though life here's grim. The truth is we all want a better life

Tardigrade 02:33
Tardigrade It's a slow walker despite its eight legs, but coping with extremes it can do best It can take six times the pressure in the deepest ocean trench It even survives the vacuum of space, where we have no chance This life form exists everywhere chorus: Consider this a serenade for a die-hard little critter named Tardigrade This microscopic invertebrate is nearly impossible to exterminate 2x Not affected by full exposure to the sun It's immune to shots with heavy ions or a gamma ray gun Heat it, or freeze it close to absolute zero: it survives cryptobiotic for decades, from a deathlike state it revives It's hard to find a more resilient kind chorus 2x

Digested by boredom An eternal rut No future lies ahead We are left to rot Crystallize our brains Illuminate our veins Consume our dreams Live by the law of the Crystal Demon Just let him float to your brain Live by the law of the Crystal Demon The way of decay A whole town fallen into the hands of crystal meth No more work, no more social life Onward to death Crystallize our brains Illuminate our veins Consume our dreams Live by the law of the Crystal Demon Just let him float to your brain Live by the law of the Crystal Demon The way of decay

Bockereyders 02:45
Bockereyders De tijden zijn donker het korte leven zwaar De mensen vrezen god, de duivel en elkaar Terwijl de welgesteld’ elite spuugt op ’t volk De oogst brengt maar weinig, het vee niet veel meer ’t Gezag heerst meedogenloos, tegenslag keer op keer Terwijl de heren en de kerk laveloos baden in goud chorus: Donkere wolken pakken zich samen boven ’t geteisterd land Een horde van hoeven trekt door de Kempen: plundering, moord en brand Kerken in vlammen, beroofde boeren, dorpen gedompeld in rouw Scherper examens, valse conclusies: de schout zit in ’t nauw Het gilde der vilders, gevreesd en veracht een makkelijke zondebok, van ketterij verdacht Zelfs de brave burgerman vreest zijn bestaan God afgezworen, levend aan de rand worden ze de Bockereyders van de Doode Hand Terwijl de boeren in de gouw rillen van angst chorus Zondebokken zijn nodig, de roep om wraak zwelt aan Op de pijnbank wordt alles bekend, al heb je niets gedaan De schuldige wordt gehangen, zijn complicen opgespoord Zo heeft justitie meer dan 400 mensen vermoord.

Schizophrenia I think I’m finally alone Looks like no one else at home A moment of relief is mine For a moment I feel fine But the next thing I know… they are here again Whispering their commands… and eventually shout When I reach this state Of pure insanity They will seal my fate Inevitable chorus: Don´t want to be with my treacherous friends Don´t want to be Can´t I just be without my treacherous friends Leave me alone Crowded place inside my head Given orders form a threat No one´s here to stop the voices An unbearable rouse of noises My friends form a disease, a mental illness From which I cannot be cured. It´s my damn curse When I reach the core Of my insanity There will be no more Redemption chorus

Devour 03:17
You are just influencing public, making decisions Re-elections controlling your life Representing politics from a corrupt state Your political repression is stripping our rights I'll devour (all your rights and privileges) I'll devour (all your tax money) I'll devour (all your freedom and your votes) I will devour You are a kleptocratic gainer, taking advantage Degrading our quality of life To extend your wealth and political power Leaving an unwarranted government behind I'll devour (all your rights and privileges) I'll devour (all your tax money) I'll devour (all your freedom and your votes) I will devour I'll devour (all your rights and privileges) I'll devour (all your tax money) I'll devour (all your freedom and your votes) I will devour

The Great Disruption Welcome to the Anthropocene a new stage in earth's history Hail to the simulacrum of boundless prosperity A swift transition escorted by crises An epoch in the making, urgency rises Human impacts wreaking havoc The prophets of profit keeping a deadlock chorus: Brace yourself cause impact is imminent The Great Disruption has arrived Scream Crash Boom Let's see what species will survive It is what it is Get ready for the ride The children of self-imposed doom acting out atrocities The sixth wave of mass extinction A tragedy in progress, ceaselessly Indelible scars by hubristic alteration Time to dismiss the crown of creation Much of life will be deleted Mankind's fate nearly completed repeat chorus This means trouble for us humans, not a problem for the earth as such The world has coped with changes well before Life forms will sprout once more Tomorrow will be a brand new day The blue marble will keep rotating and the sun won't fade in five billion years

Lost Vegas 02:35
I am roaming the desolated sands Sun is burning, this is where it ends What once was shall never be the same I am left here to end my brutal shame There's no saviour for my committed sins I'll do penance, here it all begins On the horizon, an alluring light appears A city of neon-lights absorbing pain and fears Mammon welcomes me at the golden gate Spend my money here, this is my final fate I shall obey the only god that‘s here Spending money on black jack, chicks and beer Leave behind the values that I've learned Only god knows this is what I've earned I found saviour for my committed sins I'll do penance, everybody wins On the horizon, an alluring light appears A city of neon-lights absorbing pain and fears Mammon welcomes me at the golden gate Spend my money here, this is my final fate I'm lost in Vegas... Lost in Vegas... Lost in Vegas...

Trash Vortex 02:38
Trash Vortex From the Great Pacific Ocean It emerges from the deep Chemical sludge Spreading like cancer Devouring all life Into the Trash Vortex chorus The human race is a sinking ship Gone adrift upon the shores of the Plastic Island Created by our hands We determined our fate Overload of waste Is eating our world Drown in debris Suffocate humanity chorus The human race is a sinking ship Gone adrift upon the shores of the Plastic Island
