Depression 02:08
My own depression Counting flies on the wall My own desperation I want to fuck it all My own desperation I sing the songs of praise to thee My own desperation Is killing me, Is killing me...

Sorry, I don't believe it Don't have a clue how to receive it But I do envy if you do God, how I wish some of that was true Sweet talks on television, social rights fighters And "life matters" vision Fixing the world by bringing chaos? I don't buy it! (Oops! King left the house) If everyone's so special and pure Where's the disease to which you're the cure? Chorus: Don't believe what you see Where's the better day for you and me? Seeking peace? Prepare for war! Good intentions, blood and gore Don't believe what you see Trick or treat for destiny Still one thing we know for sure Seeking peace? Prepare for war! Oh o o! Prepare for war… Pitying the weak and the oppressed? Believe me, your master is the best. Loudest cry is always silent Can't get true fame without violence. The story is old as the world itself The endless quest for power and wealth Best fairy tales told before elections Step up, the country needs your action And If the changes are all for the best Why are we sitting on hornets’ nest?

N.I.F. 03:32
Young boy came to the other kids And asked: “Will you play with me?” They said: “You don’t have any tricks, motherfucker And we don’t play for free”. The same young boy came to a girl And asked: “Will you go out with me?” “You didn’t give me a pearl (such as loser) And I don’t go out for free”. Chorus: Nothing is free and don’t you tell me There things you got, or things you lost Without any cost. Prodigal son came to his mother And asked: “Can I ever be me?” “My boy, there are rules to honor Identity is not for free”. Young man came to the nearest college LAnd asked: “Will you mind to teach me?” “Your mummy ain’t got any money, Education is not for free”. Young secretary came to a new president And asked: “do we need another war?” “My dear, I need to golden up my sink.” And oil is not for free. So sure!” “Open your minds, your hearts, and wallets, The TV-preacher says. “I’ll give a little piece of Heaven, You’ll have to pay for the rest”.

They crawl in the darkest of nights Whispering lies to your ears Lawyers of the dark sides Constant reminders of fears Worst company when no one is around Tearing apart, make you lose your ground Chorus: Chemicals Chemicals, let me in We all possess that ancient sin Let me in, let me out We will swallow you, no doubt! They come in moments of collapse Sweetly promising peace Poisoning the mind and the heart Saying solitude is a release. They crawl into your darkest zone Screaming loud "you're better off alone" Chorus: Chemicals Chemicals, let me in We all possess that ancient sin Let me in, let me out We will swallow you, no doubt! Let me in, let me out We will swallow you, no doubt! Let me in, let me out We will swallow you, no doubt!

Would 03:47
Have some bourbon, have some beer, some tequila, and some coke. Wrap yourself around newspaper, morning coffee, and your work. Cheesy speeches, conversations. Empty matchbox full of beams. Don't you know that our wheelchairs are powered by the steam of our dreams? What would you say if death will come to take us away today? What would you say if death will come to take us away today? Kill your neighbor, cause he's weird. He is wearing a Lumberjack beard. Another neighbor tries to be a star. By selling her flash in a nasty Bar. Singing songs of desperation, creating stupid dumb sensations. Wrap yourself around your work. Some bourbon and some cigarettes that you do smoke. What would you say if death will come to take us away today? What would you say if death will come to take us away today?

Toy 04:01
Destroy your toy Destroy, destroy. Revive your joy, No joy, no joy. You can't go back It sucks, it sucks. Go off the track, This track is junk. Waking in the morning, Scrolling through the feed While you are drifting Everybody looks so hip No way in, no way out Everyone is in their place Come to think about it It all makes despicable sense Strived for useless perfection Took in pride' lethal injection Struggled with you ego-maniac sense All you do is keeping face while sitting on the fence Can't get desired protection Tones of useless information Doubting own reality Can modern life get some quality? Loud steps behind the door, someone came for more... Boredom in freedom Coffee with milk and jokes Creating new existence Some unfriendly folks Everyone is dreaming Dreams must be fulfilled Second hand emotions Are your emotions winged? What is your life's obligation? Where is your final destination? Consume or create, Black and White Lead or stay. There's no wrong or right Sometimes there's no other way Sometimes you’ve got nothing to say You're either alive or either dead You can't be happy while you’re sad All the useless information, misleading path to degradation.
