I don’t want to fight anyone I don’t want to hate, ignore, despise or envy anyone And although I’m not religious I don’t mind if you are Even if I don’t speak your language, I’m sure we say the same words We might have our differences, but music will unite us And I will not judge you by your skin, for I am colourblind Like the deaf, I will see you with open mind, no matter what you say. Like the blind I will hear you with open heart, no matter what they show And blindfolded, I want to look you in the eye, so I can see the person who’s standing in front of me And make up my own mind instead of following the masses Our leaders are blinded by money and refuse to accept that the world is dying, We all know that trees are the earth’s lunges, still we cut more. We all know there are weapons of mass destruction, still we make more. Greed has poisoned our souls and is the sole purpose of all wars. We all make mistakes and making mistakes is human. Now we must learn from our mistakes to make things right. We must never despair, we can change if we believe in love. If we open our hearts and respect our differences we might survive Without humanity and kindness, we are lost. We are all equal, but not the same. We are not numbers, we have a name I see the global warming on TV A world drowning in misery Never a moment without war The death and dying we can’t ignore Have we not learned from history In war there is no victory That weapons never did us good Destroying houses, life and food   I see a child running for her live Hoping that she will survive A refugee in a foreign land Where people refuse to understand I see religion used as an excuse For hate and a god is abused We dance upon each other’s grave It’s normal now to misbehave The world is ruled by Wall Street From 80 floors of cold concrete They look down on us without remorse The poor and weak are held by force I see the lonely and the innocent The good in false imprisonment The sick without the funds will die No helping hand but eye for an eye It’s time for us to make a change To make a stand and re-arrange To make this world a better place Or we will end the human race It’s time for us to make a change To make a stand and re-arrange To make this world a better place Or we will end the human race

Hate 04:22
HATE I could be wrong I could be right That doesn’t justify the reason for your fight I could be black I could be white It makes no sense at all that we cannot unite   I could be gay I could be straight There is no logic why this triggers all your hate But you You curse my name You kick my head I could be goth Could be new wave It makes no difference, you want me in my grave An infidel Or a hindu You disrespect anyone who doesn’t think like you   And you You curse my name You kick my head You just can’t stop You just can’t stop Keep pushing Keep kicking Keep shouting Keep stabbing You just can’t stop You just can’t stop Stabbing the life out of me Shouting the life out of me Kicking the life out of me Pushing the life out of me And you just can’t stop You just can’t stop HATE You show your friends how touch you are Run me over with your car Forced me kiss your baseball bat Just before it crushed my head And you just can’t stop You just can’t stop Keep pushing Keep kicking Keep pushing Keep kicking And you just can’t stop You just can’t stop

THIS EMPTY ROOM I hear the ticking of the clock It echoes in this empty room First very quiet, but slowly it gains Until it sounds like sonic booms I try to cover up my ears But there is no escape and no way out I tried to warn you, but you wouldn’t listen to my cautions I tried to tell you, but you never paid any attention I tried to write you, but you wouldn’t notice all my warnings And now it’s all too late and there is nothing left that I can do I hear the ticking of my heart It echoes in this empty room First very quiet. but it slowly tears me apart Until it’s broken and past recovery You tried to warn me, why you wouldn’t listen to my cautions You tried to tell me, why you never paid any attention You tried to write me, why you wouldn’t notice all my warnings And now it’s all too late and there is nothing left that you can do We tried to warn you, but you wouldn’t listen to our cautions And now it’s all too late and there is nothing left that we can do

Fake news 05:36
FAKE NEWS High above from my ivory tower. I can twitter 24 hours I can insult all immigrants. Call all women stupid cunts Name the tsar as my best friend. Make sure this world will come to an end Build a wall to heaven and back. Give you all a heart attack And they all adore my lies. Except the press that I despise I ignore them just the same. Let them never play my game And the climate will not change. I prefer the stock exchange If you’re not a business man. You will never understand And now I am the president. Have the world at my command I am ready for a war. When I don’t control no more Profits on my sinking shares. Credits from the ones downstairs Who had voted for me then. Half the nation is my fan The land of liberty, Reliability The land of make believe. It’s all gone The land with it’s own dream. The land of self esteem The land to lead the world. It’s all gone The land of freedom of speech. Defender of democracy The land to show the way. It’s all gone The land of unity. And opportunities The land to save the world It’s all gone. It’s all gone. It’s all gone 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 All missiles go!!

Nudes 04:10
First I will turn off all the lights, as I want the room pitch dark Except a red light in the corner, that shines as my only spark   My timer is set to seventeen seconds and I release white light The chemicals lined up in a row are waiting for your sight Only the paper knows your secret and keeps you in disguise But the developer does its work and exposes you full size The magic happens in my darkroom As you appear out of the thin air. The second is an acid that deactivates the first. Insufficient fixing will make sure your image’s cursed. After your bath you will be hanged to dry before you’re framed The most beautiful girl I’ve seen, and I don’t know your name The camera eye that never lies My negatives look positive The magic happens in my darkroom As you appear out of the thin air. First I will turn off all the lights Except a red light in the corner My timer set to seventeen seconds The most beautiful girl I’ve seen Out of the thin air.

It slowly takes control over our lives It slowly creeps into our vaines It slowly replaces our dreams It slowly takes over our brains   Suddenly my eyes began to open Suddenly my eyes began to see I don’t know the dreams that I have broken I don’t know if this is reality For I see places I see faces I’ve never seen For I see faces I see places I’ve never been We are all addicts Wired to the screen You and me, a minute virtual romance You and me, we’re wired to the screen In a dream that couldn’t last forever In a dream or in reality ? For I see places I see faces I’ve never seen For I see faces I see places I’ve never been We are all addicts Wired to the screen It’s easy access to news and nonsense It’s easy access to love It’s easy access into our private lives It’s easy access to sex We are all addicts Wired

I dream of wonder in case of shame it’s me who’s waiting if you come into my dream I dream of loving just you and me you’re so exciting when you wake me from my dream I dream so peaceful so deep asleep just when I wake up At once I’ve lost My dream I never dream like MLK I’d be lying if I said so ‘think about it when awake I’m just not much of a hero No, not me Don’t want to be like JFK Become famous when I die I rather dream that we could play And dance like we’re dragonflies Dance like dragonflies! I don’t have dreams at all At night I’m comatose without my memories I miss my sweet dreams My love I don’t have nightmares too No fear of leaving Keep the internal flame alive for you and me My love I fear Amnesia Is that what’s going on At night erasing all My thoughts of you and me My love I have alternatives To make my fantasies Come true, but not for real It’s called daydreaming My love

In the land of uncle Sam you can be a real man And a real man, he is armed And they play the game of Doom out on the streets now So why not play at school “Every man should own a gun And kill someone elses son Everyman should have a knife And take someone else’s life Every man should have that right This is our nation’s love and pride To commit mass murder suicide” And the weapons are for free, this is the law And the law is never wrong So why not play like cowboys and Indians And why not play at school Every man …. Now the movies come to me and to my hometown And they killed a girl tonight So we light a torch for her and for our conscience And we wonder what went wrong)

I check my looks in the mirror It’s time to get lost in the night To get away from this ordinary life And dance until we see the light The music takes me one step higher My friends have joined me in ‘The Sound’ But suddenly the rhythm stops and shots are fired shots are fired And people are falling all around Sometimes it’s hard (sometimes it hurts) To still believe in mankind Sometimes it’s hard (sometimes it hurts) But we must still believe in love I told my child of good and evil Learned him what life is all about What’s wrong, what’s right, have respect for everyone Back then I didn’t had a doubt I see him playing in the classroom With smiling faces all around But suddenly the laughter stops and shots are fired shots are fired And children are falling on the ground Sometimes it’s hard (sometimes it hurts) To still believe in mankind Sometimes it’s hard (sometimes it hurts) But we must still believe in love Sometimes it’s hard (sometimes it hurts) To still believe in mankind Sometimes it’s hard (sometimes it hurts) But we must still believe in love

And the fear was in his eyes As he realised he was lonely And the tears came down like rain As he asked himself again Am I the one and only And the rain was pouring down Look for shelter underground Look for compassion Then find out that your disease Like acid rain killing the trees Is like some fashion It is …. There are too many questions There is too little time To find out the answers Why words no longer rhyme Now he’s wondering why Why is it always me They’ll leave me here to die In solitary And there is no cure found in the land For him this virus means the end And there are too many things he still wants to do Neglected and torn He left them for you There are too many promises He knows they all lie Cause there’s only one truth And that is he’ll die And if love is the reason He can’t understand Why he has to go so soon to Echoland There he hopes to find his rest To lower his guard and stop his quest Until that time he regrets his lust And then it’s ashes to ashes And dust to dust And dust to dust And dust to dust
