It’s a cold, cold world – money war and greed What are we living for – no one seems to care no more To care about others – to care about their dreams To care about this planet – to care how it feels How it feels to be free Just when I was about to give up – tired of all their lies When the sky turned black – I look straight into your eyes Like a light at the end of the tunnel – your bright light shines on me Together we will rock this world – and we’ll go chasing dreams Reach out, give me your hand Love at first sight, we leave this world behind We are partners in crime Just like Bonnie & Clyde Corporate leaders, politicians, citizens, hey you - open your eyes Corporate leaders, politicians, citizens, hey you - open your eyes Corporate leaders, politicians, citizens, hey you - open your eyes This world can be beautiful – beautiful – just like you Reach out, give me your hand Love at first sight, we leave this world behind We are partners in crime Just like Bonnie & Clyde

Locked up in her room, I sat and stared outside Through a big window saw the world go by Millions over millions are marching in synch To the same rhythm, to the same beat And I can’t help but wonder: Is that what they want? If that’s what they really want than that’s not what I want! So I spread my wings and fly, way up in the air And there is nothing to care about So I close my eyes and cry, from the top of my lungs And I wonder why they don’t - let me be me 2.Strophe It only takes a spark to set the world on fire Fists up in the air, follow your desire So I put in the CD I got from a friend When we went together to the show to see the band The music gave me power, gave courage to attack Since I listened to the punkrock I never looked back So I spread my wings and fly, way up in the air And there is nothing to care about So I look down from above, reaching out to the stars And I just let myself be free – let me be me Music has the power To make you stupid or make you wise Now it’s up to you To choose the soundtrack of your life So I spread my wings and fly, way up in the air And there is nothing to care about So I look down from above, reaching out to the stars And I just let myself be free – let me be me

Along time ago life was going easy I feel in love so many times I gave my heart away and didn’t think about What will happen when she is gone The pain I felt, the joy I receive Now it’s getting hard for me Finding love, open my heart To set my feelings free Don’t give up Don’t lose your hope You just might find what you’re looking for If you let go Disappointment, don’t know what to do My mind is totally confused Feels good to have friends To back me up and push me on and on Time is flying, life is running Thoughts are flying by and past No way to forget, put yourself together It’s hard to get a grip Don’t give up Don’t lose your hope You just might find what you’re looking for If you let go

Yesterday so near yet long ago People come and people go Tomorrow we might be already gone So tell me where do we belong Live your life and go your way You will fade but your memory will stay Live your life and go your way Your memory will stay For the people close to you For the people who chose you Forever forever forever now and then Honour the old And teach the young Work on yourself The future has already (just) begun Respect the heritage of those who passed away And create something for here to stay Live your life and go your way You will fade but your memory will stay Live your life and go your way Your memory will stay For the people close to you For the people who chose you Forever forever forever now and then

Some people live in prison Jailed in their own mind Sentenced for a lifetime To see only black and white Taking everything for granted Keeping things the same What use to be will always be That’s the way they play the game One plus one makes two, that’s what they say And they will tell you what is true Which way to go and how to walk What to wear, with whom to talk Definitions written in stone, Evolution has been postponed Judgement closes our eyes, There is no room for surprise Some escaped from these set of rules To the subculture of their choice Here we are brothers and sisters Together we can raise our voice We all listen to the same music we prefer the same kind of clothes here we stand united and became what we ran from One plus one makes two, that’s what they say And they will tell you what is true Which way to go and how to walk What to wear, with whom to talk Definitions written in stone, Evolution has been postponed Judgement closes our eyes, There is no room for surprise

Der Regenwald wird abgebrannt Für Millionen Rinder auf frischem Land Baum für Baum, Strauch für Strauch, die Tiere vertrieben und ein paar Indianer auch in Schiffe verladen über den Ozean damit unsere Rinder auch was zu fressen ham In Massentierhaltung eingesperrt Läuft hier nicht irgendwas verkehrt Na egal, der zweite Burger ist schon bestellt Ja, der ist lecker für wenig Geld Wie kann es sein, daß ich nachts noch schlafen kann Jahr ein, Jahr aus, doch was kommt dann Bin ich Teil der Lösung oder doch das Problem Augen zu, ich mag es nicht mehr sehen Es geht voran, in Asien steigt die Gier Wirtschaftswachstum, die selben Fehler wie wir Industrialisierung ohne Rücksicht auf Verlust Jetzt werden uns die Folgen bewußt Co2, FCKW, jetzt tut’s langsam richtig weh Es wird wärmer die Pole schmelzen In Holland und Belgien gehen sie bald auf Stelzen Warme Winter kein großer Verlust Dafür gibt’s Hagelstürme im August Die Klimaanlage brummt und der Fernseher läuft Das Handy klingelt und die Waschmaschine säuft Den Kühlschrank geöffnet, ich überleg was ich wähl Und auf meinem Laptop blink ne neue Mail Mit ner Schokolade vor die Glotze gesetzt Ein Anschlag auf ne Pipeline, 50 Tote und viele verletzt Der Planet wird geplündert, ja so dreht sich unsere Welt Die Armen bleiben arm, die anderen stapeln das Geld Scheißegal, mit dem Kopf durch die Wand Unsere Konsum treibt die Welt in den Untergang Wie kann es sein, daß ich nachts noch schlafen kann Jahr ein, Jahr aus, doch was kommt dann Bin ich Teil der Lösung oder doch das Problem Augen zu, ich mag es nicht mehr sehen

Zugesoffen und total bekifft, Lahm im kopf, Gehirn versifft Kein Wunder daß bei mir nichts geht wenn nur noch eine Synapse sich dreht Fehler erkennen und doch wieder machen, nichts draus lernen, über sich selber lachen Komm mal klar alter, reiß dich zusammen Irgendwas ist es vorbei, zu spät um nochmal anzufangen Ich dreh mich im Kreis die ganze Zeit Scheiß drauf, jetzt isses vorbei Gas geben kann ich, jetzt bin ich dran Die Zeit ist reif, endlich anzufangen Mal wieder total unten Wieder mal ne Liebe in den Sand gesetzt Ich bin der der geht, werd immer nur versetzt Liegt wohl doch an mir, irgendwas läuft da schief Ist es etwa mein Leben, was bis jetzt daneben lief Fühl mich zum Kotzen, muß damit leben Weil ich so bin, wie ich war liegt sie nicht mehr neben Neben mir im Bett, neben mir in mir drin Was für ein beschißner Wahnsinn Ich dreh mich im Kreis die ganz Zeit Scheißdrauf, jetzt isses so soweit Gas geben kann, jetzt bin ich dran Die ist reif, endlich anzufangen

about

The songs on this EP were all self-recorded in 2006 and 2007. The 5 english language songs on it were new songs at the time and were recorded before fifty50 went on hiatus and stopped rehearsing and playing concerts. The mixing of songs was never finished and so the songs went on a slumber for 7 years. In 2015, fifty50 started practicing again and the 5 songs, together with 2 german songs that were previously released on the local Leipzig Zombiekiller compilation, were remixed and mastered at Hip-Gun-Studio near Dresden, Germany. So this album is a release of older songs as well as start of a new chapter for fifty50.

recorded at: ZKU Leipzig, Germany
recorded by: Sash
mixed and mastered by: Thomas Baumgärtel, Hip-Gun-Studio

main vocals: Sash
