Track Name: Fuck!
I hear them talking of freedom, I hear them lecture in love
But somehow this set of values only applies inside the boxes they know

It's the same old story of cognitive dissonance and closet boners
The same old chorus of bullshit arguments based on the same old beliefs Get out and move on

They want to streamline emotions, make everyone feel the same
They only care for the morals that strengthen their cause
And fill our lives up with shame

The same old chorus of straight cocks that want everyone to bend over
The same old story of narrow pussies that shun what does not fit with them Get out and move on

So fuck how you want to fuck, give it all, do it right
And fuck who you want to fuck
But most all fuck them; this is your life

Here is to love beyond borders, gender, tradition and race
Let's tear down the walls that confines us, let's make some room to make some sense of this place

It's the same old chorus, the same worn-out bigotry and bullshit stories
How long before we can all just be free to live love that we want?
Get out and move on
Track Name: Laughter Brings People Together But No One Wants To Fuck The Funny Guy
You're trapped here in this fucked up world without much chance but to go along
Succumb to the cultural norm or find capacity to lay down your own path

Can you disregard criticism and not turn into a shit
Figure out how to be happy though everybody's shouting judgments in your face

What do they know? They won't have to live inside your head
It's a one-off show - we all pay for living with our deaths

If you try and succeed, you'll have your happiness but you will be alone
With no one around to recognize what you have and appreciate the greatness of your fight

What do they know? They won't have to live inside your head
It's a one-off show - we all pay for living with our deaths
And when you go, you'll bring neither savings, cash or debt
It's a one-off show - we all pay for living with our deaths
Track Name: Parental Disclaimer
I've got a secret for you; most grown-ups here are wrong most of the time
And they all feel insecure about their choices and lives
They're mostly kids who grew big and forgot all about what they were taught at the playground
So they bully and cheat and have a hard time to share

And while growing up will not kill you, you surely won't feel stronger
So take your time, here's your chance
We're catastrophes alongside great inventions

The world is yours once you know that parents are not all that they are cracked up to be
Go out and learn on your own - they don't have all the knowledge you need

We all find it hard to believe that we're insignificant in a greater perspective
And every great thought ever conceived, we have tried to abuse

Yet it's these small minds that produced songs and art so great it shook the ground
Made dreams come true and moved us on
We're catastrophes alongside great inventions

Love is what counts and these moments will soon be gone forever
So take your time, here's your chance
We're catastrophes alongside great inventions
Track Name: Spoiler Alert
All these fucking humans, where is everybody going?
I guess it must be summer somewhere
The road to success seems to be jammed with busy people looking for the road to happiness

There is no more to see than the world right before us
We won't beat entropy - so here is a spoiler for you:

In the end you're gonna die alone, you'll bring nothing with you when you go
So free yourself from the things you own and spend your time with those people you love
If we've never been so rich, the question is why are we feeling so poor


I don't buy the idea that more consumption's gonna free us - the weight of our belongings ties us down
It's true that time is money but the deal only goes one way - when time is out no bills will buy it back

There is no more to see...

But I know, yeah, I know we'll have good times to remember
If we just learn to let go of all the things not meant for us
And I know, yeah, I know we'll find value in our venture
We can leave with a smile when we go

And I know, yeah, I know soon everything is ending
So don't mourn when it's gone but celebrate the times we had
Cause I know, yeah, I know we'll have good times to remember
We can leave with a smile when we go

If we've never been so rich, the question is why are we feeling so poor
Track Name: ScreamerSongwriter
I feel alone on the crowded street, I don't fit in here it seems
But all these people I barely see might feel the same way as me
Alienation, no relation, there is a silence between us
So let me hear you - if you're still alive

For every lie that we told ourselves, for every war waged for peace
For every freedom we gave away in order to feel more free
Alienation and frustration, slowly builds up inside you
But let me hear you - if you're still alive

If you feel like screaming, just like I feel like screaming
Let out what you believe in, let me hear you scream it I think we're more than we think that we are
We can make our world sound that way, we can make the silence go away

It all closes in but we don't make a fuzz or express how we feel
Hoping the problems will solve themselves if we're pretend they are not real
Deep down we know it, our time is over, the future sneaks up behind us
But let me hear you - if you're still alive

If you feel like screaming...

Guitars are not meant to hang on the wall
They should resonate with passion and change
Voices are not meant to silently consent
They should sing for the future's better days
So let me hear you scream!
Track Name: Lullaby
Stones are gonna get thrown
Burning cars will light up the night
The songs of millions in unrest will be our lullaby
Will be our lullaby

No one stands on their own
Everyone came out to the fight
Actions call for reactions
The world will fall tonight

So close your eyes and just fade away
If we’re not here tomorrow something new will rise out of our remains
A new joy and sorrow
Beyond this night, a new dawn awaits

Just close your eyes and fade away
Track Name: Privacy Is A Crime
Hidden in valleys and hills, silently blinking away
A server collects and creates the tissue that makes up your whole life
It's all to serve and protect, for features aimed right at you and Freedom* is now spelled with an asterisk
* Terms and conditions may apply

We’ve got our servers full of you and everything that you ever did
We know your weight and your profile
We’ll make our ad banners will fit you perfectly

Because here we are selling everyone everything
Your information’s on the line
Yeah, here we are selling everyone everything
Just carry on and you’ll be fine as long as you have nothing to hide

You do your best to comply but you know someone who don’t (such as active animal or human rights activists, system critics or just people on the edges of the current political spectrum)
And if you don’t give us your information your dad’s gonna lose his job
But then your friends start to disappear or go to jail without trial
You want out now but you’re in too deep and who knows who’s been telling on you

We’ve got our servers full of you, what makes you sad and what makes you tick
We know your face and your habits, you better watch out where you click
You’re always on

Format everything
Let's hope that you have nothing to hide
Track Name: White Male Middle-Class Blues
I spend most of my day time in a dark room, moving digits on a screen Trading time for food on the table, looking for a loophole out of here But here our kids and houses just serve to remind us of all the coming bills we have to pay
So we stay in jobs that we don’t care for to afford more shit that we don’t need

I really hope somehow science will save us ‘cause we don't stand a chance here on our own
It seems all our abundances have played us -maybe it is time to let them go

But the city's pretty nice in the summer when everyone's a little less depressed
Can't make a difference all the time but for what it's worth, now, here's my try
Here's another song to cheer you up

My phone was manufactured in a big factory in the East
With suicide nets around the buildings to catch depressed workers in their fall

I really hope somehow some god will save us ‘cause we don't stand a chance here on our own
It seems somehow our self-perception have played us - maybe it's the time to let it go

Cause we all judge ourselves by our intentions
And judge others by the things they do
Everyone's a hypocrite but find a way to live with it
Here's another song to cheer you up

Just let it go
But don’t let go

I never tried to save the world in the first place
I'm just trying hard to save myself
Things look pretty hopeless on the worst days It feels like it is time to just give up and cry for help

But this city's pretty nice in the summer when everybody's a little less depressed
Things are changing all the time, today might be the day you crack a smile
Here's another song to cheer you up

Just let it go
But don’t let go
Track Name: Ronkedor
I’ll walk these roads alone, turn off my telephone
This merry melody will be the last of me
The notes are out of key but there’s no one but me
Nobody's listening to the words I sing

Who cares what will remain when everyone's gone
I’ll walk through the rain singing this song

No more goodbyes to make, we’ll all go our separate ways
The end of the world could have been much worse

Who cares what will remain when everyone's gone
I’ll walk through the rain singing this song
There’s no time like the past and no future to see
So I’ll walk through the blast humming this merry melody

Na na na na na…
It could have been much worse
