Back To The Tower



You forgot to say bye when you said it was time to go - Didn't think I'd be back so soon did you? / Where's the love that you spoke of? Where's the 'welcome home'? / I don't get it, but the other side misses you

One by one you'll end up just like the rest of us / In a line, waiting quietly for your turn / Resurrection's just a ploy to raise a fuss when everyone just ends up in the earth

So for one last time would you just plant one on my cheek and tell me you're alright and everything's a-ok?

You're going back to the old white tower where you'll wait for a higher power to tell you where you'll end up just like us

Hello love, how are you? I came for one last long look at you / We only just met, but it seems like it's been a lifetime since you came through the haze of waking up at the bottom of a barrel shaped just like a staircase, so I hope that you don't hate that I appreciate just looking at your face

So for one last time would you just plant one on my cheek, and tell me you're alright and everything's a-ok? / And It won't be long my darling girl before we meet up once again, because the bomb's only a minute or two away

So goodbye for the last time, it's my time to go - Gotta bring these idiots and their robes / They're all late for appointments with the boss above and he's not one that forgets to judge

I'll see you up in the old white tower waiting with a bouquet of flowers in my hands, smiling down from the back of the line / St. Peter's got your name on his tablet - I'll introduce you, and admit my habit disappeared when I met you, now I'm fine

You're going back to the old white tower where you'll wait for a higher power to tell you where you'll end up just like us / Sweating bullets waiting for your judgment - Did you pass? Did you fail? The subject's just enough to make you stand in line
Track Name: Benchpress - Disgusted With The World
Truly sickened by what I see. Selfish cowards run the fucking streets. Self image is their main concern. To see how many fake friends they can fucking earn. Their world revolves around fitting in. I keep my circle tight. You’re never getting in. Bury your heads in the fucking sand. Our own reflections, no one can fucking stand. Make up reality as you go along. Justify your actions because you're never wrong. Caught in a whir of lies and deceit. I see who your are not who you’re trying to be. Wreck your havoc, adjust your morals. Disgusted with the world.
Track Name: Deathjocks - Bad King
When the truth is a fruit in one man´s hand.
Death is already observing.
A coward sends servants to another man´s land.
Death is already observing.
An idiot act.
with no reflection on result or effect.
But still you act
with no refleczion on result or effect.

Crucified and sacrificed.
These coffins are a feast fit for a bad king.
Ain´t ever gonna lose. ain´t ever gonna win.
For a bad king.

A claim to supremacy is a rotten disease.
Death is already observing.
You can snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.
Death is already observing!
An idiot act.
with no reflection on result or effect.
But still you act
with no refleczion on result or effect.
Track Name: Wolves & Wolves & Wolves & Wolves - Crimson & Black
mark my words
your next breath is the last you'll breathe
so watch your back
i'll cut your throat
and watch you bleed
throw up your arms
you dont stand a fucking chance
you made your choice
now the blood is on your hands

it's staining the skin
crimson and black
it's permanent
runs straight to the bone

mark my words
my last breath is all the life i need
your empty threats
will never bring me to my knees
put up a fight
i need this more than you'll ever know
you marked your fate
let's open a vein and watch it flow
Track Name: The Forgotten Youth - Economy
we’re pissed off by your society
are no longer slaves to the economy
we don’t mind if you no longer exist
we now stand up rise our fist

running down the track, try to free my mind
see people under bridges the society declined
for many years living below the poverty line
and on the other side laughing bankers who dine

the rents in our hood rise uncontrolled
like the stock exchange for oil and gold
no money left to live in dignity
no problem for fat cats but for you and me

we’re pissed off…

a double figures growth in spread income
seems not enough for all you financial scum
staff get fired cause brokers want more
’cause profit is what they adore

we’re pissed off…

and if speculation losses appear
you call the nation and stoke fears
now we should bail our oppressor out
but this time we will sing out load
Track Name: Alarmsignal - Ballast Über Bord
Durch den grauen Alltag, runter an den Hafen,
alles so vertraut, wie es schon immer war - und unverwechselbar.
Das Rauschen in den Ohren, wieder mal auserkoren,
um in die Ferne zu sehen - und den Sinn zu verstehn.

Leben und leben lassen und nichts dabei belassen
und überhaupt ein bisschen Harmonie schadet nie.
Während die Winde wehen, hinter Horizonte sehen,
ist Verlangen schon zu viel, auf dem langen Weg zum Ziel.

Und dann lass ich meiner Sehnsucht freien Lauf
und werf all den Ballast über Bord
und die Möwen ziehen ihre Runden
und das Wasser trägt ihn langsam fort,
meinen letzten Akkord - zu einem fernen Ort.

Dass, was sich hier befindet und dass, was uns verbindet,
gesucht, gefunden und verloren - und wieder neu geboren.
Aus unbegrenzten Weiten, durch Fluten der Gezeiten,
strandet eine Melodie - zwischen Realität und Utopie.

Leben und leben lassen und nichts dabei belassen
und überhaupt ein bisschen Empathie schadet nie.
Während die Winde wehen, hinter Horizonte sehen,
ist Verlangen schon zu viel, auf dem langen Weg zum Ziel.

Und dann lass ich meiner Sehnsucht freien Lauf
und werf all den Ballast über Bord
und die Möwen ziehen ihre Runden
und das Wasser trägt ihn langsam fort,
meinen letzten Akkord - zu einem fernen Ort.
Track Name: Harm Done - Two Worlds
I do know all of you
But feel surrounded by strangers
I can hear your words
But won't listen
There's two worlds
And i like it that way
There's two worlds
I don't wanna stay
Am i here or am i gone?
Glance at me, keep smiling
Hypocrite blood relatives
I didn't get to choose
That's not me
There's two worlds
And i like it that way
There's two worlds
I don't wanna stay
There's two worlds
You repulse me
There's two worlds
Two fucking different worlds
Track Name: Truckdrivers - Stay Punk
From Volzhsky till Tank-city
Gangs of kids like us
In colored clothes
Basking in supermarkets
Lining their pockets invisibly
Reaching unreachable

Never have cash, they always get a stash

Hey, deputy,
We screwed your truth
Give us a bit of money for seedling
Cause our fields
Don't grow cash by themselves!
I won't ever shake your hand
Go wherever you go

Go fuck yourself, FUCK YOURSELF!

We don't need your freedom based on handcuffs,
All we want is just truth, that clear as crystal.
You can ask for truth on barricades,
Or keep believing in law and judgement

In our fields,
There's a crowd of dirty and freaky
Red eyed
It's our lion's pride
Nether black, nor white
Not have enough cash for Nike
So put on a knitted sweater, dude!

Never lie to you moms, dads, and your lads.
All the other - fuck them up every time!
Ex-classmates live for paying their bank loans,
What about you - stay PUNK, dude!
Track Name: Thousand Yard Stare - The Old Game
I wonder why we can not live at ease.
I wonder why we can not live happily

Is it the movement of time,
the movement from our own past to the future?
I doubt there's such thing at all
but illusion that keeps us playing the old game
of improving and striving and wanting,
desiring and hoping, fearing and suffering

Is psychological time more than thought?
And isn't thought nothing but a mechanical response?

But we like to be machines, avoiding the painful, striving for comfort
Being in a total mess, we create time to secure ourselves against
the present misery. We say: "One day, I'll be living happily"
How many todays will it take?

Seeing all of this, what do you do?
Still resisting the misery inside you?
Once it flowers and grows, let it be, watch it carefully!
Only then it withers away and dies like a dead leaf!

I wonder why we can not live at ease

The Streets 03:15



I walk the streets
Underneath an empty sky
They draw me in
And there is no question why

There is a purpose
To every step that I take
I walk the line
And every turn that I make

It starts a chapter
Tells the world I am free
and every corner
Is a wave upon a sea

That has no ending
So why not open up your mind
And take off that suit
And refuse to be confined

The streets are calling me home
The streets are calling me home
The streets are calling me home
The streets are calling me home

There is a truth
That is there for you to find
If you go looking
Within the galleys of the mind

Where every echo
And every choice that you make
It brings you closer
‘til you know it’s not too late

To let it go
And end it all with good bye
Find some good friends
Who will never ask you why

You walk the streets
Underneath an empty sky
Guitar on your back
And the future in your eyes
Track Name: Teni Svobody - Bring It Down
Alright, I've got nothing to say to you
I don't even know how you live
And if we've ever had a single common problem, yeah

I don't have a thing to share
I may not just give a crap
A loud mispronouncing snow-blooded vodka drinking alien

Bring it down
I hope we'll make it
Just have a laugh and brake it
Bring it down
Yeeeeaah

Okay, we don't know each other much
I wonder if you wanna know
If I go on 'bout all the problems my home has your head will surely blow
I'm glad we don’t need to rush
We're going to talk and learn
We've got something to overcome, we've got something to overturn

Self-important and isolated
Hope the Big Guy appreciates it
We're all
Just names of the selfish bastard
Just names of the one same bastard
Track Name: Hardside - Forever
Hung on to your words but there’s nothing left
The things once believed are false promises
Searching for peace but wont see the light
No solace coming all you have is time

Try and find peace in my suffering
Now your world is slowly coming down
Reduced to nothing you existence wont make a sound
You’ll feel all you’ve done to me forever feel my suffering
Can’t escape all your demons
Don’t have what it takes to find the light
You’re on your own
Swallowed by darkness the end is near nothing to gain everything to fear
Turn and run when things got hard,
Bridges burned you’re in the dark
Embrace all the pain
It’s only the beginning
Locked out all alone the truth you will never know
Tides change you’ll feel our pain in the circle of suffering
Track Name: Absturzgefährdet - Matthias
Matthias ist noch jung, vielleicht gerade mal 10
und er hat selten Bock in die Schule zu gehen,
denn seine Mitschüler haben alles und betreiben Lästerei
und Matthias hat nur Lumpen, seine Eltern kriegen ALG2.
Doch er denkt sich “scheiss drauf“, was soll der ganze Mist
schließlich will er nicht Pilot werden und auch nicht Polizist,
eigentlich hat er keine Pläne, seine Zukunft die ist grau,
will nur nicht werden wie die andern, das weiß er ganz genau.

Und er träumt nicht von Geld, sondern von Gerechtigkeit.
Von einem Land wo es kein Arm gibt, kein Arm und auch kein Reich.
Und Statussymbole brauche ich doch nicht,
denkt sich Matthias als er einen Mercedes-Stern abbricht.

Matthias hat einen Bruder und der war schon mal im Knast,
weil der öffentlich gezeigt hat was ihm hier nicht passt .
"Bonzenschweine raus" hat er ans Rathaus lackiert
und anschließend des Bürgermeisters Audi demoliert.
Seine Eltern meinen wo er Recht hat, hat er Recht,
wer nichts hat kann nichts verlieren und scheut daher kein Gefecht.
Doch Matthias hat noch Träume, die würd er sich gern bewahrn,
doch fällt es schwer sie festzuhalten lebt man auf der Aussenbahn.

Und er träumt nicht von Geld, sondern von Gerechtigkeit.
Von einem Land wo es kein Arm gibt, kein Arm und auch kein Reich.
Und Statussymbole brauche ich doch nicht,
denkt sich Matthias als er einen Mercedes-Stern abbricht.

Eine Welt, in der dafür kein Platz zu sein scheint,
doch Matthias träumt weiter, träumt weiter und weint.

Hopelesness Control 03:27

lyrics

buy track

Hopelessness control

strong waves are smashing on
the seacliff of my imagination

well I’m just screaming on this wall
my voice is running fast
the silence in this room...

rage of all my nerves
vibrating vocal cords
earthquake of my thoughts

my mind, my mind is asking me about this world...
solutions fighting with themselves
and I can’t stay

stay here…with my idle hands
when I see all those pictures
looking through the mirror
I can see only abuse

and so, the people just goes on,
the troubles grows and everything you do is like a stone goin’ down on the snow
the hopelessness control
all emotions of the body that I can’t respond

I’m going so far, the way of my heart is lost and I’m in a desert storm
I’m looking into the truth, and I am increasing my doubts now
increasing my doubts now, increasing my sadness
I’ll go... on...

and so, the people just goes on,
the troubles grows and everything you do is like a stone goin’ down on the snow
the hopelessness control
all emotions of the body that I can’t respond

I’m going so far, the way of my heart is lost and I’m in a desert storm
I’m looking into the truth, and I am increasing my doubts now
increasing my sadness, increasing my soul…
Track Name: Bx(o)xKx - The Cage Of Lfe
I'm living in a cage
the cage of my life
in my chest a big knife
turning over the last page
of chapter one

low life expectancy
no love inside of me
afraid of my own rage
I'm turning over the page
I'm done

No plans, no life ahead of me
time was wasted and lost
but on what cost
it's over and I didn't see
anything at all

I didn't know myself
dying will close
the last chapter
the last chapter of my life
Track Name: Anchor - To Hell and Back
When all of the bright lights are finally fading and the world turns to black and grey. All of the sadness and the unbearable weight will turn love into stone, and get the best of me. To hell and back. I've had my dreams crushed. I've learnt the price of trust and the pain of loss. I can't stand the silence nor the sound of your voice. I need distractions, chaos and noise. All the reminders of how life used to be. It burns like a fire and gets the best of me.
Track Name: Brutal Youth - Smear Campaign
Empty slogans for empty heads
Broken spines leaking unread pages
And you don't mean a word you say
A cherry picked political defense
For every promise you've broken
When you don't mean a word you say
Transgressions buried underneath the
Back-slapping rhetoric you preach
And you don't mean a word you say
But in the wake of all your falsities
You hemorrhage credibility
And you don't mean a single fucking word you say
Backpedal harder
Try to convince yourself
With everybody else
Until they all wise up
To all the shit you sell
Have you convinced yourself?
Because everybody else
Is slowly wising up
To all the bullshit you sell
Well soon you'll run out of breath
So keep fucking talking
I hope you choke with every syllable it takes
Track Name: Fit For The Bleeding - In My Veins
I ever had much
I never had much to lose
I never had a lot of options (no)
I never had a lot to choose

But what has always been with me
In my heart and in my veins
And what will always be with me
Is this hardcore energy
But what has always been with me
In my heart and in my veins
And what will always be with me
Press play and erase your darkest days

To me it’s friends over family
Respect equals pride
Passion over money
This is my life

I look at you, then I look at me
I look back at you, there’s nothing left to see
An empty man without passion or pride
Lost every goal or reason that once identified
Who you were and who you could be
It’s all lost along the way
This road only takes you so far
And you refuse to see
And I am so uncertain how you can be so sure
You live in such a small world and ignore the unexplored

Friends over family
Respect equals pride
Passion over money
This is my life

I still have dreams
I still have goals
I still have wings
I still move on
And I won’t settle for less than what I’m willing to achieve
I will not settle in your ways
No I Won’t bend to your beliefs

Fuck fairytales of unconditional loyalty
In the end you and me will both die alone
All that matters to you is to follow your straight path
Straight to death

I won’t fight for your acceptance
Or bend over backwards to make you proud
The fact that you don’t feel what I feel
Separates me from your crowd

I march my path while you march to death
(Left right left)
Track Name: Blind Beliefs - Blind Beliefs
What does this world hold for me?
I feel life slipping away.
I’m in a constant state of denial.
Why can’t I just be free?
I’ll reap what I’ve sown.
But I won’t cope on my own.
I can’t handle this frustrations.
Where is my salvation?

I can’t handle this frustrations.
Where is my salvation?

All these thoughts in my head.
Make me think about life and death.
I don’t know which one to choose.
‘Cause in the end I know I will lose.
I look death in the eyes.
Humanity is what I despise.
I know our time will come.
In a world that has gone wrong.

Extinction has begun.
Salvation? There is none.
Track Name: The Poor Devils - Turn It Back
Do you remember the time when we were young?
We had no big worries, we just had fun
After school was out, we drank a beer
We hng out till the sun set down

These were the times I will never forget
These were the times I wish me back
We were young. We were free
The best time that shaped me

We were a unit, we were a crew
do you remember? Yes we do
Let's turn the time back, to meet our desire
do you want it too? Yes we do
Let's turn it back

Rules were there for breaking 'em
We felt like the strongest and the best
Limits were there for crossing 'em
We were just unstoppable

Now we became older and we don’t see us every day
But if we’re together it’s all just the same
We tell us old stories, share memories
It's all like in the past, nothing changes

This are the times I will never forget
This are times which shaping my life
We're still young. We're still free
The best times that will never end

We are a unit, we are a crew
do you agree? Yes we do
Let’s stop the time, to enjoy our desire
do you think so too? Yes we do

We stick together. Now and foreve
We are a unit for life
