Track Name: Ruins
Hey you will come around
about thinking that you're safe and sound
Just watch the news today
the paper reads the same

Increasing violence
people are held behind the fence
guarded with the guns
Is this how we behave?

Another lesson learned is
that ignorance is our bliss
can't change the course of this world

I'm watching the ruins of a peaceful day
State of confusion is here to stay

Hey you will come around
about thinking that you're safe and sound
Another killing spree
another mindless war

Endless misery
caused by rotten politics
amount of arms increase
but who is counting score?

Another lesson learned is
that ignorance is our bliss
can't change the course of this world

I'm watching the ruins of a peaceful day
State of confusion is here to stay
Track Name: Ratification Abomination
Trade and investment over the seas
obscure partnership that they conspire
Reflects today's greedy disease
kind of agreement we don't require

Some may believe in GMO salvation
Chlorine, pesticides and drugged up livestock
Uncertain consequences for the next generation
Double standard pharmacy, atonement we've got... left

Closed cabinets behind the scenes
frightening plan to gain corporate power
Shady deals by “who knows” means
Fuck this shit! We ain't buying it!

What about the labour rights and all the small employers?
Our fundamental privilege to the ground and clear water
Don't want to fight a losing battle against the ruthless lawyers
Take action for the truth before they'll take over!

Closed cabinets behind the scenes
frightening plan to gain corporate power
Shady deals by “who knows” means
Fuck this shit! We ain't buying it!
Track Name: Bombs Away
Do you want to die for the treatys sake?
Do you want to pledge the obedience?
Do you want to throw your life away?

A new tool for the foreign policy
Give away your right to your statements
Now you are playing someone else's game

Why didn't we learn from all mistakes we've made before

Bombs away
We're just pawns in this game
We're only feeding the fire with the choices that we make

Every kill is unnecessary
Crusade for the western democracy
Actions of wrongly judgement

Obsessed with the war machines
Arms race never gives us peace
Only if we will stay nonalingned

Why didn't we learn from all mistakes we've made before

Bombs away
We're just pawns in this game
We're only feeding the fire with the choices that we make
Track Name: Still Counting
I wonder can we ever fully comprehend the burden of poverty?
There is always some fuck who’s ready to take advantage of it
Promise of a better life can turn out to be a foul destiny
Once again we see a victim of a modern slavery

As long as there will be!

All these broken promises
Another wasted life we see and still are we counting...

Have you ever thought about the cut-rate service produced inside the borders?
Diligent tiny hands grinding tirelessly at the sweatshops without future
And the obscene sexists sustain a cycle of fear and a reign of filthy masters
Distant dream of human rights for those who will suffer

As long as there will be!

All these broken promises
Another wasted life we see and still are we counting…
Track Name: Home
We walk alongside with millions of our kind
We're going forward but still we're getting nowhere
We are rushing like there's something to be found
Without a purpose we are fighting for our existence
fight for our lives

Run away as fast as you can
before you lose everything
You need to get far away never look back
until you find a place that you can call home

With blank expressions we are walking to the end
Dead faces everywhere, we are searching our freedom
It would be easier for us to just give in
Stand out or rise above until we find a reason
reason to be

Run away as fast as you can
before you lose everything
You need to get far away never look back
until you find a place where you don't need to…
Track Name: New Messiah
You're like a puppet on a string
Although you've been crowned the newest king
Praised with the foam coming out from the corners of your disciples mouths
Our salvation is coming in

Never mind the contradictions
Never mind the constitution
He's the man who steals from sick and poor

He'll bring us liberation
from all the earthly pleasures
By beating us until we're black and blue
For all the sins we do
And for being greedy too

Who put those words in your mouth when you don't know what you're talking about
No matter what you spout your followers agree
Your eyes are blazing and still it is amazing how deceptive your actions can be

Never mind the contradictions
Never mind the constitution
He's the man who steals from sick and poor

He'll bring us liberation
from all the earthly pleasures
By beating us until we're black and blue
He contemplate things through
But what would Jesus do?

New messiah comes, he will fix everything
We need to be saved or so we make believe
He's doing nothing making no stand at all
All for one and one screw us all...
Track Name: Red, White & Blue
Our minds are filled with all the images they feed
on TV screen and in all the magazines
They are making us dream
and tell us what to believe
We are blinded to see
what we really need and what lies beneath

We don't want your systems
We don't need your rules
All righteous lies we can see right through
After all we've been fooled by the red, white and blue

Freedom is spread with all the guns and with the bombs
The imperialistic greed
Exploitation succeeds
The true liberty
is that false democracy
We don't want to be part of the bullshit scheme
Wave the flag of free… dumbs

We don't want your systems
We don't need your rules
All righteous lies we can see right through
After all we've been fooled by the red, white and blue
Track Name: Operation Unity
We can chance the path we're given because tomorrow is unknown
Forget about our differences and all the shit we're told

Pursuit for money and wealth has blinded your eyes, filled your life
World around you is been set aside
When greed is new virtue
Crooked ways to benefit other people
Possessions that you've lost are the greatest loss of all
You'll hit the ground when it all comes down
Then what you have left?

Make it through the day is our only object
Who are we to blame if we can't fix the problems
We are all the same and that's not a shame, no
Operation unity is what we need right now!

You hate everyone who is different by their style, skin color, gender or point of views
No one else is as good as you
That's human intolerance
Never had a second thought of what kind of power we are holding in our hands
We can build a bridge or destroy everything we have

Make it through the day is our only object
Who are we to blame if we don't fix the problems
We are all the same and that's not a shame, no
Operation unity is what we need right now!
