Track Name: By strangers be driven
By strangers be driven

The commercials are surrounding us all
we're looking for security because we fear to fall
health insurance, work insurance - are enough for me
I design my life my own way - so that's what I don't need:

For those who try to tell me I have to change
and for those who try to show me a better way

I'll never give in - because I won't - by strangers be driven

I know about my sorrows - motivation is the key
but I'd rather pick myself up than to say one day:
"I got a job I don't wanna do..." "...and I ain't loving my family!"
before I die with hope - I want to live my dream

To feel yourself better - That's the only reason why you want me
our interpersonal insurance s'got no more guarantee

I'll never give in - because I won't - by strangers be driven
Track Name: One voice more
One voice more

We won't pick you up - be yourself - be ONE Voice MORE
We won't pick you up - be yourself - be ONE Voice MORE

Maybe we got the same sound like thousand bands before
Maybe we choose the same words but we're ONE Voice MORE
Yes, it's a political song for help if we ask ourselves why
why there's no change? What are we fighting for?
The answer is we're ONE Voice MORE

WE'RE JUST - WE'RE JUST "ONE Voice MORE"

Better you think twice about what you're now listening to
if you think we're not right - it will come back at you
'cause we got something to say, 'bout society and government fails
bout what an individual really matters and what makes our movement so much better!
Track Name: Get hurt
Get hurt

Hello my name is Janik, right out of my panic
offroad and going nowhere, right out of too much traffic
I was here - I was there - feels like I was fuckin' everywhere
and all the places tonight - I don't care
When I sit on the same right place like every night
I remember I have to stand up and fight
so much confusion - so much - It's time to fuck you up

I wanna get hurt - I wanna get drunk - I wanna feel the blues and say it in punk

I'll tell you more than you wanna listen to
the music will not help you thru - thru too much information
I'm against your filthy nation
I will show you what punk means to me - a breakout 'til insanity
I'll take no prisoners - we'll take no prisoners
If you're nazi, racist or other scum - if you think you are the only one
if you think my words are crap - alright - we are in a fight
Track Name: Spoiled Chances
Spoiled Chances

It's sunday morning and I'm feeling low
I wanna go for a walk to buy a coffee to go
by the way I'm passing by a secondary school
and it makes me feel like I am a fool

woohoo - spoiled chances which now I regret

I go along left the school far behind
the chances of today make me feel alright
but sometimes if I got time to resign
I remember I was so fucking blind

woohoo - spoiled chances which now I regret

I hope so much that it will be not too late
the chances of today show me another gate
I have to go through and I want it now, it's true
'cause the world ain't waiting for me and you
Track Name: Head up high
Head up high

Everyone's got his problems and this song is like cutting myself
I've got thunderclouds above me and no one cares
It's a really individual cloud about my past and yesterday
and this fucking thundercloud will never go away
My biggest problem is if I am really down
I show out happiness without a cause because I don't wanna bring bad feelings out
maybe then everybody has fun and I have fun with them
but if I walk home I feel fucking down again

But I'm not alive to cry - I really keep that smile
but sometimes I'm alone I neep to write songs just on my own
KEEP YOUR HEAD UP HIGH, BOY AND TAKE THIS SHIT FOR REAL
but the most important thing is saying how - how you feel

Everyone's got his problems and this song is like cutting myself
I've got thunderclouds above me and no one cares
It's a really individual cloud about my past and yesterday
and this fucking thundercloud will never go away
Everytime I think that way I, know what's to do
I really hold on to all of my feelings and then I'll make it thru
I isolate myself maybe to cry but never to die
just to keep my head up high and lose the fear to lose my mind
Track Name: Writings on the wall
Writings on the wall

Somebody had so fuckin enough, takes the bags full of spray cans
he or she felt so bad unheard in an uncommunicative land

Fear the writings on the wall - if you can feel it you cannot fall
voices of the streets by the small and tall - fear the writings on the wall

There's a tag but no one knows a real name or an age
but it really doesn't matter cause it's all about rage

Fear the writings on the wall - if you can feel it you cannot fall
voices of the streets by the small and tall - fear the writings on the wall

Don't know a name.......don't know a age......but it really doesn't matter.....
....cause it's all about rage!
Track Name: Productive Waiting
Productive waiting

I really like working until my feet and back are burning
then I start to feel down - working - what's to say bout it now
I do it because of the notes - ignore the pain in my back and toes
I need money to pay the rent - working just for money is productive waiting

Productive waiting - waiting - waiting for my time

Oh yes I'm done it's friday - lay my feet up, drink the pain away
cherish the weekend it's a cure to me - party hard against productive waiting
Track Name: I won't listen
I won't listen

"Don't try to set me off making a decision...!"
I know where I'm standing - I know where I go
but now it's just the beer that I follow
I want to relax while I'm drinking my beer
it's the only reason why I'm right here

I won't listen - better you'd keep your distance

I won't listen I don’t want to explain
which side I am on or share someone’s pain
back off and stay the fuck away
I don't care what you have to say
Track Name: Stupid little romantic
Stupid little romantic

Love at first feel lost my weight cause I cannot eat
all I get from thinkin of you - is a faster going heartbeat
I wanna write old school letters - phone you if I get no sleep
I wanna feel you right by my side - this kind of love is going so deep

I feel like shit without this time where my mind plays tricks on me
I gotta be young - gotta be stupid - I gotta be a stupid little romantic
Stupid little romantic - why do I feel so far from home
Stupid little romantic - all I want: let my heart go

I'm daydreaming - see you in everybody's face around
that's why I can hug the whole world for that what I found
I want you on my lap - see you dancing just on your own
I never felt in love before and that's everthing I know

I feel like shit without this...

Listening lonesome to music so embarrassing
that's not enough I'll take heart to start the same way to sing
about the only thing that matters - givin' away what I need
and I say it one more time: This kind of love is going....!

I feel like shit without this...
Track Name: I wanna break up
I wanna break up

So many times I shared with routine work
so many times I shared with just one girl
So many times I spent to get to the top
and all I wanna say is "I wanna break up!"

I wanna break up and hit the road
Hit the road to find back home

The work seems like they don't believe in me
my girl's attitude is not the way I want it to be
I won't get higher to be something just like pop
I take a look around and think I wanna break up
Track Name: Power of the moment
Power of the moment

Don't tell me something like that
you can't believe, there's nothing more in your head
You just have fear but let's enjoy the conflict
say how you feel just like, when you were a kid

This is the power of the moment - the power of a choice
you are human and you've got - one heart, one soul and one voice

A non-political is an opportunist - you're everywhere a wannabe
you never can be a true friend, a brother or sister to me
you're not dead and you're not just bones and skin
so why do you talk about everything but not about your opinion

Do you fear the violence or to be unneccessary stressed
now you will be a puppet - you can only try your best

Remember no one is better no one is better than you
it's just a question of the rhetoric and now I leave it up to you
Track Name: Don't tell me no tales
Don't tell me no tales

"Don't tell me no tales - don't show me no souveniers
If I'm not saying "I'm interested", you're not important!"

You've got nothing but yourself but you can't let it be
to pose with all the things which cannot make you free
you try so hard to be different but you're still the same
you're an eternal loser in your own dabblers game

Don't tell me no tales - don't show me no souveniers
If I'm not saying "I'm interested", you're not important!

Looking for recognition is your way
but my roots are from the underground that's why I'm here to stay
I know where I come from - a special place for me
but you're going here and there just to write your own history

Don't tell me no tales...

I don't judge no people with other ways of life
rather I'm open minded 'cause others let me strive higher
But those who are outplaying problems with fun,
it's about them, and "I don't fuckin' care!"

Don't tell me no tales...
Track Name: Better Way
Better way

Better way - better way - better way
Better way - better way - better way

I had a feeling so real but wrong
'cause now I feel more true and strong
we arranged us with our situations
that's important and okay
but sometimes it's just better to go seperate ways

Better way - work on yourself just to be true
Better way - don't let hate and love dominate you

If you're unhappy because your darling sucks
If you have to move to find your luck
be sure to have only one crying eye looking back
cause the other one must keep smiling straight ahead

Better way - work on yourself just to be true
Better way - don't let hate and love dominate you

Just go and one day - one day you will see
the tears are dried and you're feeling free
enyoing yourself is the key - the key to everything
raise your glass and have drink, on a better way

Better way - you think about what's good and unfair
Better way - but now it's only fucking time to dare
Better way - listen to yourself forget about someones tears
Better way - you also have pain but you face your fears

Better way - better way - better way
Better way - better way - better way
