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

Track Name: Bonnie & Clyde
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
Track Name: Let Me Be Me
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
Track Name: Don't Give Up
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
Track Name: Forever Now and Then
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
Track Name: What's Your Definition
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
Track Name: Kopf durch die Wand
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
Track Name: Im Arsch
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
