Track Name: unwritten future
Thousands of years in history, I was born 25 years ago
When the world was divided by an iron curtain, the cold war
I grew up in a happy childhood and they called it socialism
Before I realized the wall came down and put us into capitalism
Technical development is exploding, fast times by globalisation
Now Europe is uniting, yet another currency for this nation

Childhood doesn't seems so far away
And nothing in the world is here to stay
Societies and people come and go
2001, 2002 - time flies by before you know

when I was little my parents had to wait 18 years for a car
today the car you drive shows what type of person you are
when I was little the tv set had no remote control
today we got tiny cell phones and internet where ever we go
when I was little nature’s ressources seemed inexhaustible
today overpopulation and industrialisation, the collapse seems unstoppable
when I was little many countries were poor but I didn’t know
today the rich and the poor drift apart even more, now I know

where will it end, where has it begun
so important we are circling around the sun
calm and angry and happy and sad
our future has to be written yet
Track Name: neverdreamsatnightjohnny
Here comes neverdreamsatnightjonny
This is the best day of his life
Today his mission suicide
Today he wants to die
He gets up and spreads his arms
Throught the open window he takes a jump
He lands on the lap of a fat lady
She gives him breakfast right away
Suddenly he jumps up
And speeds out to the broad busy road
Like driven by mad cows disease
He asks the cars run over me please
The road comes closer and so does the truck
The light turns red it stops to drive
Jonny is pissed - he's still alive

Now he needs a coffee
While he works out the next plan
Good ideas don't come easy
But the day has just begun
A new thought let the tracks be his last resting place
The train surely will be late
Bowel movement won't wait
Zoom - he sees the train go by
Shit, now what, there is a new meaning to his life
When even the train won't come on time
There really is no need to whine
Fuck it, this was just a test
He won´t give it, give it no rest

He jumps off the highest building he can find
He's happy to save the money for a parachute
On the way down he aims for a trampoline
Fly Jonny fly, today you just don't seem to die
He bounces back and breaks the world record
Now he is famous because no one jumped to the moon before
Jonny looks down on earth with a tear in his eye
As a human comet he will never die

He was right, there's no need to whine
Today Jonny dreamt for the first time
Track Name: my decision
The rest of my life always seemed so far away
I had so much time – I just lived for today
There was always trouble and always fun
I just didn’t care, I’d get up and run

Pressure is growing about what to do
Everybody knows only I’m the fool
Work, school, media, friends and family
Do you really know what’s best for me?

Thanks for your advises
But now leave me alone
This is my life
I have to make this decision on my own

my biggest hopes and my greatest fears
don’t wanna look back: what happened to all these years
whether the choice is right or wrong
don't wanna regret the things I haven't done

Pressure is growing about what to do
Everybody knows only I’m the fool
Work, school, media, friends and family
Do you really know what’s best for me?

Thanks for your advises
But now leave me alone
This is my life
I have to make this decision on my own
Track Name: so far so good
so beautiful it feels like magic
the cycle of nature works perfectly
millions of species gaudy like a painting
an oasis drifting in the universe
one fine day we escaped the balance
a population exploding and spreading out
but something is wrong with this place
can we have a new one please

symptons of a virus
what makes us blind
our planet got infected
we are the human kind

we don't get along with nature
don't even get along with ourselves
we can't have enough, can't have enough
oppressing others for one's own good
socalled stability secures access to resources
diving the world in good and evil forces
we put the hand in our pockets insteads of
reaching out to our brothers who suffer

sitting 'round the fire, reaching to the sky
soothing noises from the forest, it becomes night
we're so far away from the city, hearing the wind teasing trees
becoming one with nature, how could it end up like this?
Track Name: destination unknown
Somewhere, someplace - just another school building
Populated by coporate dolls
Mom and dad have to bleed and pay
To make their brats hip and trendy everyday
Today - importance provided by brands
Tomorrow - experience provided by life
Though a few outsiders don't wanna wait that long
They wish they were more and strong
Enough is enough is enough
You're asking for new, for a brandnew start

Don't you see what's right
This system let's us die from the inside
Evolution

Finally they are out of school
Into work - this corporate world ain't too cool
In need of money for the house, vaccation and the gas
Destination: at least middle class
In their heads they dream of a better world
One day everybody will be the same
Though a few outsiders don't wanna wait that long
They wish they were more and strong
Enough is enough is enough
You're asking for a new, for a brandnew start
Track Name: space cadet
born in a world light years away
planet ruled by war
too hard to survive here too hard stay
nobody left who cares about him
just wants to break through
got his dope inside his ship now it's time to go

space cadet - looking for hope
space cadet - looking for peace

with the speed of light he boosts through galaxies
dreaming of a better world but war is all he sees
cruising from planet to planet resisting the enemies
he doesn't know it better, violence is all he breaths

and then one day he found the strongest magic in the universe
now he will just fly back home and found his own world
Track Name: back to earth 2005
sitting on my old abused couch sinking throne in all that mess
browse my pockets for some change to visit sammy´s for food
and tomorrow rent is due and I have no clue of
how to pay or what to do it´s like the thrill of living's through
It's getting dark

lightning strikes, horizon glows green
alien encounter the vision I´ve seen
don`t wanna stay don`t wanna stay
don`t wanna stay take me far away

now I´m sitting in a space ship and I`m looking down on earth
no regrets, I won`t come back, full of hope, alien smokes dope
now I sit on the alien's couch it´s old abused and full of green dook
and I don´t like their plastic food I'm thinking back when I was home
it`s getting dark

where ever you are, don´t let yourself down until it feels like home
stay with your friends, they´ll be by your side
stay with your friends, you won't be alone
Track Name: only for you
When is the time to know what to do
When is the time to know what is true
When is the time to know she is gone
I am scared about it is already done

What I have to say is what I feel
It's only for you, It's only for you

It's only for you

Now is the time that I really know
Now is the time when she needs to go
Now is the time when I realize my fear
She is gone and I'm still sitting here

What I have to say is what I fell
It's only for you, It's only for you

It's only for you

She made me feel like a fool
So long, just go - it’s cool
Track Name: what really counts
one day he was born in this world
and people told him what to say and do
his road of life was set up from the start
straight forward he never changed the lane
all expectations he fulfilled
oh, everybody is so proud of him
sometimes he leans back for a while
he closes his eyes wishing he could smile

life wasn't always easy for her
and the next day seemed so far away
they say everybody needs to follow the rules
even you little girl, that's the way it goes
but today was a good day, they won't understand
don't care about their conservative life
sometimes she leans back for a while
she closes her eyes, on her face smile
Track Name: democrazy
Why do a thousand cops stand in front of one protester but behind one politician.
Why do cameras watch over tax payers but not over the taxes in the politician's pocket?
How do you spell democracy, how do you spell hiercharchy?

Why does an old taxpayer die all slim and an old politician of too much fat?
Why is the people being led by a class of it's own?
How do you spell democracy, how do you spell monarchy?

The democracy is the base of our society,
But the ones who preach it take the paper it's written on and whipe their ass

Why do ordinary crooks get the bars in front of their face and stealing politicians around their house?
Why do politicians do everything to win the next election instead of working and in hand, to save this land?
How do you spell democracy, how do you spell anarchy?
Track Name: you can do it
Driving my car, everything seems so far away
I am alone listening to music, enjoying the way
There isn’t really an aim
Even no goals to pursue
No trouble in my mind
I’m just going to
Going to feel free
Going to feel fine
Live is going on
There is no need to whine

You can do it
The day has just begun
The world is yours
Just follow the sun

No way forget it, that’s just too hard
You will never make it, don’t even start
Obstacles and problems, I hear people say
As they lead their ordinary lives, every day
But I can’t help it, I got a plan
If I fall down, I just get up again
Going to feel free
Going to feel fine
Life is a maze
And not a straight line

You can do it
The day has just begun
The world is yours
Just follow the sun
Track Name: to our leaders
little man, your must finance us, that's one of our ideas
the people is our employer, that's one of our ideas
little man, our ideals are not yours, that's one of our ideas
the people pays for our luxury, that's our best idea

thank god, we make the laws
and work hard to make the people follow
thank god, we know everything
and work hard not to follow

stupid man, you cannot look behind the curtain, that's another one of our ideas
stupid people, we force you to hate your neighbor, that's another one of our ideas
stupid man, your public hatred is our best publicity, that's another one of our ideas
stupid people, if your not willing we got the army, that's our best idea

thank god, we make the laws
and work hard to make the people follow
thank god, we know everything
and work hard not to follow

government, everything you do is for you, that's not a good idea
government, your ruin the land, that's not a good idea
we'd be free of worries, if your wealth was shared, what an idea
