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

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

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

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?

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

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

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

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

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

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?

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

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
