Track Name: Scorn
Restricting your rhetoric
Every phrase pre-determined
Word by word in unison
You all give the same sermon

Simple minds think alike
Every sheep needs a guide
So you abide by the lowest common denominator

Why do you feel obliged to sacrifice substance for common ground?
Honesty outweighs artifcial scorn
But tilting at windmills seems so much easier
Than giving in to the fact that you live life without concern

Restricting your rhetoric
Every phrase predetermined
Word by word in unison
You all give the same sermon

Simple minds think alike
Every sheep needs a guide
So you abide by the lowest common denominator

If they truly cared about making a difference
How has it been all these years and the only complaint that remains is about the lack of change?

Fed up with your artificial scorn
Give in to the fact that you live life without concern
Track Name: Depth (feat. Mario Strasser)
You carry yourself as if
raising the same old questions
would be the same as creating change

Comforting yourself with the thought that your observations
could initiate a change for the better

Pointing fingers
Does not equal a helping hand

With all due respect - is it worth rehashing old arguments
If you lack the depth to offer a new solution?

So quick to point out insufficiencies

There is no blame, just the wish for you to stop pretending

You carry yourself as if
In order to be a part of this
You'd be bound to deliver the same old story

No safe haven without turning waves
And you don't see at all
How your projections
Reflect disaffection
With yourself
Track Name: Defense
I can see the irony
In going on about complaining
Your complete lack of self-awareness
Is what seperates you from me

Twisting the world
Until it fits in with your simple minded opinions
Regardless of inconsistencies
To search for the culprit
You should ask yourself what you stand for

Trying to put everyone on the defense
Demanding perfection of everyone but yourself

I can see irony
In going on about complaining
Moving on from past projections
Turn around and bounce back

Twisting the world
Until it fits in with your simple minded opinions
Regardless of inconsistencies

Trying to put everyone on the defense
Demanding perfection of everyone but yourself
Track Name: Emphatic (feat. CJ McMahon)
Fraternized in self-imposed exclusion
A brigade of privileged hypocrites
You would rather fabricate complication
Than own up to the easy path your life has taken

Their biggest fear is to be rejected
So they all play along

Isn't it disturbing that they tell you to fulfill yourself
yet expect you to sing their same old song?
They pride themselves on non-conformity
but want you to be led on

They will lead you on

I won't kneel to a speech that forces me to agree

Fraternized in self-imposed exclusion
A brigade of privileged hypocrites
You built up a facade to hide behind
But anxiety sprouts from the inside
Track Name: Threat (feat. Eric Kuhnen)
Powerless, depressed
self-hating and full of regrets
A sense of inferiority
Suffering from neglect

Mirrored in those you deem
Weak, defeated

Autonomy lost

Missing the inner sense of confidence
in your ability to solve your own problems
Striving to be a voice for the voiceless
regardless of your lack of involvement

Powerless, depressed
self-hating and full of regrets
A sense of inferiority
Autonomy lost

[Deprived of all distress
Too dependent on the fear of a threat
Bleak constructs meant to harvest compassion
Thriving on a martyr's complex]

Striving to be a voice for the voiceless
regardless of your lack of involvement
Trapped inside a chamber of echoes
Track Name: Emerald (feat. Nico Webers)
You're wrong
You won't see me fall
For your farce and your indoctrination
So vain yet so thin-skinned

No compromise for appreciation, no dumbing down
Your self-rigtheousness will drag you to the ground

They will follow wherever the stream goes
Swimming in sewage will only get you so far
You're treading water and fail to see
That you spoiled the ship for a hap'orth of tar

You're wrong
You won't see me fall
To misguidance and compromise
Just to fit an outworn pattern

Emerald waves run dry
Stranded by the tide

Emerald waves run dry
Stranded by the tide
Exposing rotten structure
At the bottom of the river
