Let us reclaim the streets We gonna start a riot, yeah we play for keeps And when the city is fast asleep Light it up with dynamite and gasoline Let it burn, burn it to the ground Torch every single building make them know that we’re around This is a cause for alarm We’ll make them lose control Tonight we are greater than giants The greatest of all We came here to gather We came to stand tall The city of lights It will be destroyed There’s no more room left for kids like us In a place that we can’t trust It’s time to set it straight To put it in the right way We can’t take it anymore
Spend nights awake, lying in my bed Trying to get rid of the demons in my head There’s no one who tells me what to do Could use a helping hand to get me through But i guess it’s up to me to prove myself I’m no longer afraid of what might come next I should lean back and ease my mind Take it as it comes, to get some sleep tonight All i ever wanted All i ever asked for Was a moment of peace to clean my consciousness What do i get, if i am aware, of what the future holds It’s gonna come down on me anyway Don’t care about tomorrow, don’t even care at all Don’t care about the future, just take it as it comes After all those years, I’ve learned a few things About life and death and everything in between I’ve learned to just let go, i’ve learned to stay calm and how to take a step back When it gets to be too much, when i’m losing touch with reality Now look what became of me, a boy that grew into a man who doesn’t need a masterplan All my life, i’ve been waiting for a sight of relief a light to guide the way i’m on to find out what i’m looking for how should i know which direction I need to go if I’m not even sure where i’m coming from
Stuttgart 03:47
Now here i stand with nothing left in my hands Wondering how this could happen to me I had everything i ever wanted But somehow i threw it all away Forever will i curse the day When i realized, it can’t go on like this Maybe i was just too young for this kind of relationship Believe me when i say, it did mean the world to me I tried to sort it out, every second i was thinking of you And i was thinking of you all day long But it didn’t work out, i couldn’t manage to change my point of view It’s been the hardest decision, i’ve ever had to make, i hope you know that too I’m looking back on the days when we were still okay To remind myself, this might have been a mistake It’s sad to know that we won’t ever meet again To fill up the cracks in this foundation Now there she goes, away from me Because i couldn’t make myself believe In all that we’ve had and how precious it was To spend my time with somebody to love I think i wasn’t strong enough Didn’t want the distance to tear me apart From the top of my lungs I excuse myself for what i’ve done And by the grace of god I swear you’ll be forever in my heart
Interlude 00:51
Summer is way too short Only thirty days when the sun comes out It’s all that we know Winter is way too long Eight months of rain and snow It’s all that we know Because this is the town where we come from
This daily routine is dragging me down I cannot move, i cannot make a sound A static motion, so predictable I need a change before my life grows cold I’m so sick of killing time This day and age should be declined Everything’s just passing by Slow motion daydreams have arrived What can i do to get out of here? I should pack my things and go Vanishing without a word left to say Letting noone know, about my plans For leaving home, this is my second chance to begin anew I’m sleeping with the lights on, impatiently waiting for the morning to come I left the door open, to get out of here as soon as possible I’m sleeping with the lights on, impatiently waiting for the morning to come I left the door open, to get out of here and never come back home Day in day out, the same old story It’s getting worn out, it’s getting boring What’s the sense behind all of this? Mind control and brainwashing? Freedom of choice is what we demand But it won’t be found within this wasteland Keep trying to hold me back Keep trying to change my mind
Red lips, skin tight jeans and the taste of summer In her eyes i can see, she’s ready oh, she wants it I am just a man; i can’t resist what i desire My brain, my heart, my skin; you’ve set it on fire Stop me now, keep me from drinking, before i do something rash The pulse, it is racing Don’t waste your time You had me at hello I’ve never been more distracted I’m lost for words You leave me breathless This body keeps working like a machine The blood is boiling from the heat As you lie here right next to me I am aware of what you really need Come here, come closer now I wanna feel you as close as possible I’m starting to lose control Your hands are all over me, i’m about to explode Hunting you Hunting me This was the closest we’ve ever been
Running, always running from the pain Running in circles, over and over again Running, is the best that i can do I wanna be with you, this distance is killing me I never ment to be poles apart From the person, who I love most But no man can avoid his destiny I hope you are doing well It’s been way too long since we last met How could we just be so wrong We were thinking that this would never work out Show you all my secret places Where i hang out, when i’m feeling alone Looking out for someone like you to share it with Running, always running from the pain Running in circles, over and over again Sickness is taking over When you’re not here with me My heart is beating slower I feel like I'm losing grip And it is wearing me out But i wouldn’t trade it for anything in the whole wide world Because all we are is all we have And all we have is all we need
You say i’m not able to communicate Well, communication’s never really been my thing It’s not that i don’t want to talk to you I just don’t know how to express myself (the way you want me to) Hey what did you expect from me Have you ever noticed that i’m talkative i guess your expectations were pitched too high there’s more to me that you had yet to find Why can’t you just give me a rest From all the things i don’t want to know I’m sick of these conversations They only spill more frustration I’m losing my motivation With every word you say I’m tired of communication Small talks and distant relations This is who i am and i don’t think you’ll ever understand These conversations, spill more frustration Communication’s something i still don’t get We need a topic, something to discuss about So you’ll be able to catch my interest, somehow You’ll find a way to get these words out of my mouth If you try hard enough you gotta get this done Show me that you care About the person i really am But it’s hard to get to know someone else If you don’t even know yourself
MODERN VALUES: Tired and frustrated, this life is bringin’ me down to my knees I can’t find one good reason to hold on to the world we’re living in These are the last words (the last words) i‘ll ever speak This is the last time (the last time) we’ll ever meet I am trapped in a life i don’t want to live And i know that there’s only one way out of it Raise your voice Establish clarity When all turns black These modern values don’t mean a thing Sick of all your hatred, don’t wanna be part of this society There’s no one to take care of the ones in great distress, why don’t you see It’s so depressing, i will never get used to it Let’s raise a toast to the downfall of the kings and queens This can’t be it, there must be something more We can’t just sit around and wait, hoping that this might do No one’s gonna save us all except from ourselves The glory and the fame, it will fade sooner than you think COLD READING: You know who i am You know who i once was You know where i’ve been You know almost everything You know the way i talk You know the way i feel You know the way i act When it comes over me There’s only one thing you don’t know about me And that thing is I’m not myself When you’re with me I’m not the one I’m supposed to be That means from your side it’s only cold reading Cuz you don’t see into my very being
It's so sad to watch you fall Falling in love with some other guy who doesn't care about you at all Even though you always knew, long time ago i also fell in love with you But you didn't take notice of me back then, so tell me what the hell were you thinking I would have given you all of my heart, the best times you've ever had right from the start All that’s left is a bitter taste in your mouth Cuz you couldn't get what you really want You could have had so much more Someone to hold, someone who’s there to keep you warm So tell me what’s the fucking difference If you're alone or with someone who doesn't care Crackin’ a smile, everytime you’re around I can’t confess to myself that it hurts to watch you drown Look at the mess you got yourself into, the mess you have become, look what became of you Poor girl, how could you just let yourself go like this You deserve something better but sometimes ignorance can be such bliss
Outro 01:49
Misery, why can’t you let me go Spend my days in the dark and the clocks seemed to stop My breath is getting short, my hands they feel numb Cuz nothing ever happens here I’m falling apart
Welcome another day of war Stop questioning what they are fighting for Because they don’t know (no no no), they don’t even know at all Slam your head against the wall, we are about to hit the shore Fall over board This ship is sinking The battle’s lost We’ve been defeated Listen up, it’s a wake up call Time is running against us all The air is thin and full of smoke, we are about to choke No turning back, the end is near, we’re forced to live in fear Someday soon we will end up lost Noone would have thought, it could go this far
