We are living in one world
I have just arrived from Germany and I love you
I am with you
Germany is with you

Dog eat dog to stay alive
Law of nature, only the tough will survive
Eat or be eaten, fail or persist
Each unto their own, dare to exist

Looking for trouble, dead or alive
Gladiator, spitting in the reaper's eye

Hell yeah, right on
Give 'em hell yeah, do what needs be done
Hell yeah, bring it on
Bloody hell yeah, and the world is looking on
Hell yeah
Are you ready? Hell yeah
Easygoing, disimpassioned
We all love us some good old-fashioned
Hell yeah


Beat by beat, you do right
Stand your ground, only the tough will survive
Ride the tornado, never look back
Dance on the volcano, romping with a powder keg
Only the tough will survive

Looking for trouble, dead or alive
Gladiator, spitting in the reaper's eye

Hell yeah, right on
Give 'em hell yeah, do what needs be done
Hell yeah, bring it on
Bloody hell yeah, and the world is looking on
Hell yeah
Are you ready? Hell yeah
Easygoing, disimpassioned
We all love us some good old-fashioned
Hell yeah
Hell yeah
Are you ready? Hell yeah

Whoever you want to be
Own your identity
Fierce and fearlessly
Reject conformity

Let your freak flag fly worldwide
Fly it free for all to see
With none to lose
And none to hide
Follow after me

Let your freak freak flag fly freak
Let your freak freak flag fly
Rise up and set yourself free
Let your freak freak flag fly freak
Let your freak freak flag fly

No hate or bigotry
Will stop and victimize me
Life is a masterpiece
Embrace what is means to be free

Your government hates you
Hates you 'cause you're free
Can't be fooled, won't be ruled
By the total state machine

Control, control, homogenize
Going through great lengths
Fascist blight won't recognize
Diversity is human strength

Zeroed in on, hollowed out
Eroded and run down
The grand ideals and principles
By which we once were bound

Your government hates you
Your government hates you
Your government hates you
Your government hates you

Your government hates you
Your government hates you
Your government hates you
Your government hates you

Our government hates us
They hate us, you and me
Right by right being taken away
By the total state machine

Barren words, abject deeds
Paranoia to the Nth degree
Despotic rule by fire and sword
Lady Liberty's been raped and cored

Zeroed in on, hollowed out
Eroded and run down
The grand ideals and principles
By which we once were bound

Your government hates you
Your government hates you
Your government hates you
Your government hates you

Your government hates you (Hates you)
Your government hates you
(And you, and you, and you)
Your government hates you too

Our governments hate us
Because we're not afraid
Unimpressed, we won't be silenced
Never lose our faith

Your government hates you
Your government hates you
Your government hates you
Your government hates you

Your government hates you
Your government hates you
Your government hates you

Hate your government
You hate your government
Your government hates you
Hate your government
You hate your government
Your government hates you

Desiderata mi amor
Face like thunder
As you walk out the door
Write me off in a letter
Poison pen clues from a killer
Enough's enough

Murder my heart
Spit in my face
Shatter shatter
All you want is
Rid of me
A side effect
Of being sick of we
Murder my heart
Stabbed in the back
Liar liar
Fall to pieces
Watch me crack
Murder my heart
Murder
Murder
Murder my heart

Murder my heart
Murder my heart
Murder my heart
Murder my heart
Murder my heart

A violent open sore
Carved out hollow
A suicidal lost cause
Cry me
Cry me a river
The beat goes on and on
Where you slither
Done with love

Murder my heart
Spit in my face
Shatter shatter
All you want is
Rid of me
A side effect
Of being sick of we
Murder my heart
Stabbed in the back
Liar liar
Fall to pieces
Watch me crack
Murder my heart
Murder
Murder
Murder my heart

Murder my heart
Murder my heart
Murder my heart
Murder my heart
Murder my heart

I know its not
Coming back to me
I know its not
Coming back
I know its not
Coming back to me
Oh oh oh
Not coming

Murder
Murder
Murder my heart

Murder my heart
Murder my heart
Murder my heart
Murder my heart
Murder my heart

I know its not
Coming back to me
I know its not
Coming back
I know its not
Coming back to me
Oh oh oh
Not coming

Rip the System v. 2.0

War and slavery, exploitation
The common basis of a western nation
Official version, a falsified story
The truth lies buried in a shroud of glory

Oppression, ignorance, idiocy rule
Education is more than what's taught in school
Forced in a mold, held down by threats
Decisions are made over our heads

But there is a way to refuse and resist
We don't need to be ruled with the iron fist
We are the people, we are strong
Let's make up our minds and prove 'em wrong

Black man, white man, yellow man
Black man, white man, rip the system
Black man, white man, yellow man
Black man, white man, rip the system

Religion and TV, you're under the thumb
Made to believe 'cause you're already numb
Smoke and mirrors, a bitter surprise
The ideals that were crammed down your throat all turned out to be lies

Black man, white man, yellow man
Black man, white man, rip the system
Black man, white man, yellow man
Black man, white man, rip the system

Influential people aren't serving time
For being involved in organised crime
Stashed away in beautiful mansions
Guess who provides for their generous pensions

But regular folks when they fail to deliver
Get pent-up in jail and sent up the river
Begging the question: what's the deal?
No peace without justice and that's for real

But there is a way to refuse and resist
We don't need to be ruled with the iron fist
We are the people, we are strong
Let's make up our minds and prove 'em wrong

Black man, white man, yellow man
Black man, white man, rip the system
Black man, white man, yellow man
Black man, white man, rip the system

Rip the system
Rip the system
Rip the system
Rip the system

Not a day goes by without terrible news
Sky is falling, hell breaks loose
It absolutely makes no sense
To do nothing but hope for a turn of events

Black man, white man, yellow man
Black man, white man, rip the system
Black man, white man, yellow man
Black man, white man, rip the system

Rip the system
Rip the system
Rip the system

Get inside, play with fire, stupefy
Feel the pull of gravity

Screaming headline, have you heard the news
Rumour has it that it ain't the truth
We used to trust, now we have to be shown
The seeds of deception grown into their own

Hate me, know me, poison the wells
Make your sheep start to think for themselves

It gets better and better as we burst with excitement
Entering a new stage of enlightenment

Fake news
On the run, on the loose
Fake news
Hot on the wire
Fake news
Trumped up truth
Fake news
Spread like wildfire
Fake news
On the run, on the loose
Fake news
Fake news
Fake news
Fake fake news

Quote, unquote all ducks in a row
You are what you eat and that's all you need to know

Detached from opposing points of views and values
The top of the food chain will decide what they'll tell you

Weaponized words, the truth ain't real
Monetized content to sweeten the deal

Fake news
On the run, on the loose
Fake news
Hot on the wire
Fake news
Trumped up truth
Fake news
Spread like wildfire
Fake news
On the run, on the loose
Fake news
Fake fake news

Addicted to news, we hinge upon it
Like a dog will always return to his vomit

Fake news
On the run, on the loose
Fake news
Hot on the wire
Fake news
Trumped up truth
Fake news
Spread like wildfire
Fake news
Addicted to news

Until the end
I stand
Here with you
If we are damned
There's nothing to lose
Breathe in gasoline
Watch it all
Burn to hell
Gotta get out of this place
Against a hail of bullets on the setting sun
Get out of this place
The clock is ticking, we're the only ones
Run, run
What's done is done
Don't you
Don't you
Don't you
Don't you lie
Only lovers left alive
Light the match
Strike the blood of fools
Forgive us father we know not what we do
Calling telepathically
Meet me at the end of the world
Gotta get out of this place
Against a hail of bullets on the setting sun
Get out of this place
The clock is ticking, we're the only ones
Run run what's done is done

Look out the window watch it on tv
Everyone everywhere wants celebrity
Blown up in style
Social media star
Selfie-snapping egoïst with a million-dollar smile
Complacent and fat
Gelded and pliant
Comfortably stunned
Absolutely reliant
Glam glitz guts and gore
A cocktail of bliss mixed with fear
Keep em pacified
Let em eat cake
Procreate and die
History on repeat
Worn over time
Pestilence and plague square up for headlines
Bigger better faster more
United in fraudulence
Divvying up the spoils of war
Glam glitz guts and gore
Keep em on their toes
Coming back for more
Glam glitz guts and gore
Get em good and high
Well trained and tame
Of sound heart and mind
In a picturesque place
Where the blind lead the blind
Liberties and justice unravelling like twine
Photographed prejudice abuse and hate crime
Fast food fast lane have it your way
Gorgeously grotesque
All feeding on fame
Glam glitz guts and gore
Glam glitz guts and gore
