It opens your arms, your mouth and legs, too It loosens your tongue and it changes your view It makes your world turn, an ocean of gold Will rage in your liver and burn in your throat Some more glasses downed At last you’re alive Drown your sorrows, flood your problems Watch ‘em all deprive Some more of that booze Again you’re so bold Finally you’ve got the courage To regain control It makes you feel home, it makes you feel safe Its company makes you incredibly brave It is a false friend for it makes you feel Like what’s real is not and what’s not is real Some more glasses downed... Where has it got you? Now You’re face down in the mud The shame of failure keeps on Poisoning your blood You won’t get rid of all It nestles in your gut Your weak attempts will never Cleanse your poisoned blood The joy felt without it is so long gone by Did you ever wind it up when you were dry? Impatience is flowing right over the brink ’Cause parties ain’t goin’ with nothing to drink

As cancerous as the city grows (When will it blow up? – No one knows) Our greed to feed our civil spleen Will force its black sky to careen It’s coming down, it’s cracking up It’s coping with our madness It’s come alive to live our sins It breeds our scorn and malice It’s coming down, it’s cracking up It pays our share with vengeance There’s no way back, we won’t be saved By our false repentance As synchronized as time goes by (Before it’s time to wonder why) We put our feet on asphalt lanes In search of open prairie plains It’s coming down, it’s cracking up... Don’t let your silly cravings go to waste Spread them out and fuel our municipal taste So blissful is our ignorance (Our self-inflicted circumstance) That we deny the obvious When hope is gone, all love is lust

Nihil is my name Nice to meet you down here I presume You didn’t enjoy the ride Well, first things first: There’s no way back To the place You once called home Now home’s the mirror’s other side Not gonna be content With what I have been given Refuse my consent To your lives that I’ve been living Pigeons in a swarm Couldn’t feel safer than you do And nothing could be Further from the truth It takes some time Till you got that down But when the ache is gone It’s gone for good Well, take a seat And let them pay And rule my kingdom As King Nihil should Wear your countenance with pride Not gonna be content... I rule my kingdom As King Nihil should

I sit up on my rough blanket And light the morn's first glow His six string love is a poor trade For the missing dough I thought we had a drunk night With Jack for company My best friend's played the oldest trick The fool who drank was me The rat is gone, and so is the bait Black bile is surging in my throat Black thoughts start to materialize Black blood is running through my veins And it blackens my eyes The rat is gone, and so is the bait The bait that we'd been killing for I can't believe that I got laid By this damn greedy whore I snatched four hundred horses From a mommy’s-darling-twat And let them feel my spurs now Rosewood Junction lies ahead He steps out of the baker’s Two coffees in his hand And drives back to our place So I’m the traitor in the end I should have known he’d never leave Black bile is surging in my throat Black thoughts start to materialize Black blood is running through my veins And it blackens my eyes How could I think he would deceive The only friend who’s there I should have known he’d never leave His babe for a million’s fare How could I heed the voice The voice of distrust that roared Through my head, flicked the switch Of confidence, erased all remnants Of reason, and pulled the trigger Of revenge?!

My friends of old seem to achieve Something, to say the least One day, I make myself believe I’ll overcome my inner beast It was in school that sloth took me over And never let go of me, no Had I not picked this zero leaf clover I could be a rock star or so Is it too late for a wake up call Will you creep on the floor Or will you stand up tall? Is it too hard to get off of your knees Will you do what you’re told Or will you do what you please? Drowning in debt for I want to live The good life that’s shown on TV Creditors grudge for there’s nothing to give Nothing to expect of me Is it too late for a wake up call... Even if I forgive I will never forget And even if I forget I will never forgive Myself
6.
Wanna make your dreams come true Wanna make your dreams come true Oh, don’t you wanna make me blue Oh, don’t you wanna make me blue So make mine true first Did I ever tell you, baby “Yeah, I love you, too”? Would have been a lie, my darling Would I lie to you? It is all in vain, my baby It’ll be alright Nothing ever matters, darling On a Saturday night Don’t you ever let me go Don’t you ever let me go Or if you want to, let me know Or if you want to, let me know So I can find someone else Give it to me – I want some Give it to me – I want some more

Operation enDurex freedom Ethic standards laid to waste Captives of the raging Coke war Break the Pepsi oath of taste Nervous gas by old McDonald’s Silencing the critics’ voice Reelection of the tradesmen By a law named lack of choice I can smell the burning hedges Posing threat, our lives at stake Opposite the straightest edges I’ll drink more than I can take A grand round of Monopoly The E.I.C. revived, renamed The ZERO LIMIT INDUSTRY Exploring countries yet untamed
8.
I see the apocalypse approaching White collars on their way to work Administrating hell and heaven One stamp for winners, one for jerks At home they’re fighting back their boredom The compensation for their pain Administrating joyless pleasure Is what they think will keep them sane When will my wings be growing again Who needs a grievous mansion Who needs a champagne flute Who needs a purfled cell phone Who needs a pin stripe suit Who needs a king size cruiser Who needs that caviar cream When all that’s left to wish for Is something left to dream Inside their glass and concrete buildings They mourn their interface to god You know, they crave for a life of labour To leave this fallen angels’ squad Something left to dream My wings be growing again
9.
The greatest victory of fate Was when we caught the godly spark As we no longer wished to wait For liberation from the dark Until that day we used to bow Our heads to live our lives like moles We did not know (and still don’t now) That divine beauty’s in our souls Then came the time when we would seize The chance to decide for ourselves Too high on this abrupt release To see we’re still in prison cells Who said that freedom was not planned? We’re prisoners of destiny This life is set, the race is canned A giant fake of liberty! Tracked down Caught up Locked in Break out Look back Still incarcerated

I’m not as far as I’d like to be From the poor man in the gutter A lash of a lid and my well trimmed life Could turn into splinters and clutter I hear the gravel under the wheels Of my prestigious luxury car Still unaware that head over heels My times are a-changing And what seemed so far... ...is coming so close, so close I can taste The ash and the ruin, the loss and the waste The shreds and the pieces, the dirt and debris Is all that will remain with me The laurels I’ve earned, my home and my wife All could be reduced to a reverie How can I secure my red velvet seat From becoming a faint memory? A bridge for a roof, a matress of tar And booze is my prime source of hope Father, I know, when everything’s lost You will take me home with this rope The end of it all, so close I can taste The ash and the ruin, the loss and the waste The shreds and the pieces, the dirt and debris Is all that will remain with me I’m not as far as I’d like to be From the poor man in the gutter Father, I know, when everything’s lost You will take me home with this rope

They say only the strong survive Use your fist to prove them right Beat them all to lead those rats There’s no reason for regrets Realise the signs of time Take the chances for your cause Corrupt every weakling’s mind Grip the key to absolute force Launch a wave of hyped deceit Truth is false and counterfeit Stretch your hand and spew your hate Blind the masses from their fate
