EYE WITNESS



Cruelty has a Human Heart
And Jealousy a Human Face
Terror the Human Form Divine
And Secrecy the Human Dress

William Blake



Hunted



Facing every window, 'round every corner
TV eyes are up and running, no one's gonna tell
Why nothing's ever sacred, nothing's ever private
Everything's exposed and all our values shot to hell

But no one seems to know which reality to show
Hunted, we're hunted down

Catching any moment, taping every sentence,
Watching from above - some kind of legalized abuse
Any given second, every single minute
Analyzed, categorized for any later use

Still no one seems to know which reality to show
Hunted, we're hunted down
Hunted, I'm hunted down



Can't Let Go



Kind of faraway country, million miles from homes
Have no reason to be here - now, see how it goes
Sharing "wisdom and progress", but we're armed to the teeth
Escalation this madness - tell me, why can't we leave?

'Coz we can't let go - no, we can't let go
can't let go - we just can't let go - ever

every inch of their country we're proclaiming as free
'til the last of natives have no places to be
educating with fire, liberating with steel
pushing repatriation - do we care how they feel?

'Coz we can't let go - no, we can't let go
can't let go - we just can't let go
we're taking over 'coz we
can't let go - and never ever will
can't let go - it's just the way we're build
the only thing we know - until the final toll -
we'll never ever let go


The Prayer



Why God took you away? He forgot me along the way,
Far away Oh, but I'll pray

Love is breaking my heart. Feels it's ready to fall apart,
Jaded heart Oh, but I'll pray

You forgot me along the way, far away
But I will pray



Edge Of The World



Learned now to steal since that day - God, who knows?
Next scene: I shoot - cop's dead - boy, is THAT news
"Big House" is waiting. You know how it goes -
sometimes you get the bear, sometimes the bear gets you.
Now I'm in pain - not a man, just a file,
Biting my nails in the "Dance Hall" all day
Edge of the world's down that very last mile
Where "Old Sparky" is waiting to fry me away

And now I'm standing on the edge of the world
Waiting from the edge of the world
Look how I'm falling from the edge of the world
Screaming from the edge of the world
"I'm spilling my blood for my sins - or so it seems"

Talked to our priest, asked him - "Sell me your God
Is there a reward for being nailed to the cross?"
Son of bitch kind of shrieks, than he laughed:
"If you'll make it to heaven, my son,
the pressure is off all the rest of us"
Killing is easy - I'm chained to my bed,
State pushed the button and murder's fulfilled
"It ain't no murder" - this old guard just said -
"good folks got murder - white trash's just dead"

I'm waiting for you to deside on mercy or rage
Waiting - reaching out from the edge


Burning The Sun



Empires were built through the centuries drones
On somebodys flesh and on somebodys bones
Creating our needs while dumping what's left -
Now nature's dying, it's choking to death
Tell me for how long

We're burning the sun, we'll tear down the mountain
And drink out the river 'till the river'll run dry
We'll shoot at the stars, or torture the ocean
'til Earth will stop breathing and wind wouldn't fly
We've buried ourselves by building a tower
To climb up to heaven - we're falling to hell
We're burning the sun, we'll tear down this mountain
and drink out the river until the river runs dry

As we're gaining strengh - the world's getting weak
We're blowing away the remains as we speak
Another decade, we're pushing some more
Destroying the walls while we're closing the door

When the forest turns to desert, when the river turns to mud,
When the air becomes a treasure - who allowed to tear it all apart?



Wicked Lounge



Caviar and champagne, big golden rings and expensive cigars
Sweaty butts on a couch which cost as much at ticket to Mars
Phony smile Those eyes as they pay an unbelievable price
For the right to decide what to do - foe me and you
House in France and a Benz -
You see, the whole world's right in their hands
Such a waste - Wicked Lounge's a happening place.
Balding guys - filthy richand every one's such a son of the bitch
Countrys sold, countrys bought.
They're trading wars and can you tell me why not?
Write a check - or pass? It's just as easy as scratching your ass
What is right? What is wrong?
Pay the price and it won't take too long
To decide what is right thing to do - for me and you
Maybe this makes you sick
You see, the point is their wallet's too thick
Such a waste - Wicked Lounge's a remarkable place
Dearest God, please get pissed -
I'm sure that none of these jerks will be missed
Such a waste - Wicked Lounge 's a wonderfull place


Help Us God



A week to build the world - and now you're leaving
Do you ever see the cards you're dealing?

Many times your ways are strange'n shallow
Makes me wonder if I'll ever follow you
Take that kid I've seen around, crying
Everytime I passed him felt like dying - but just a little bit
Trying to understand by whom he's hit

Look like kid's been taking quite a beating,
Maybe loved the hand which did the hitting
I'm sure the guy's so proud to be a father
And his son will live just like another one
Growing up in jail. Father, can you alert us when we fail?

Help us, God - help us find the way, save us
From ourselves - take that pain away.
Listen - help us, God

See, we never forgive the hitter
Life just slipped him a pill - and it tastes bitter
Growing up in mindless vino's talking
He will be convinced that he is walking
While crawling on his knees, hoping this is the only way it is

Help us, God - help us find the way, save us
From ourselves - take that pain away, take us
To your heart - guide us all the way, teach us
Help us, God - - help us find the way, save us
Help us, God


Game Of Fear



Another faceless man in gray set house on fire -
And he stayed 'til every single flat was burning
This guy just lauched his own attack -
Shot older woman in the back
He's not a pro, but he is learning
This terror lives in our fears - and it's growing
Playing the game of fear -
Wild on streets letting blindfolded steer
Playing the game of fear -
Run for your life 'cuz your last day is near Just waiting
Sombody's in the mood for war
Which none of us have seen before
The rules are simple - random killing
Without a clue, without the cause -
We live in freedom, and because
That simple fact just hurt their feelings
Face this human waste, change the pace - 'cuz it's growing
Playing the game of fear -
Wild on the streets letting blindfolded stear
Playing the game of fear - sneaking behind like a snake.
Disappear! Playing the game of fear -
Feeding the war, and you're making it clear
Playing the game of fear -
Run for your life 'cuz your last day is near


Eye Witness



A parished smile, a hidden tear
That sends a shiver down your spine - of joy or fear
A hasty move, uneven step
The show is on - you've learned it inside out, to death

A silent sigh, a stolen kiss
It's all - the miracle of life and goes like this
An enpty stare, a final scream
It's like a never ending soap - or so it seems

Look what's going on - you are my witness
On the silver screen - my eye witness.
