Track Name: Mass Effect
Break the silence. Twenty years of memories fade away in the light of the sun. The black flames of despair rise within me, consuming fear, revulsion and pity. Only hate remains. Every cell in my body cries out for vengeance, for the blood of the men who poisoned me with truth and tore me from the womb of innocence. This cursed feeling of powerlessness that comes with knowing hidden truths . Those who have tasted it once shall be beaten down by it again and again, until the day they die. After all, all secrets are connected. Once you've glimpsed even the tiniest fraction of the world’s true face, you have no choice but to watch in horror as the veil rolls itself back inch by inch. All that remains is waiting for the day insanity will crush your reason under its ever-mounting weight. This rotten world shall meet its demise. I've been laying my hands for too long into burning ashes, whilst being held in place by the roots of possibility. With every aching step I take I'm just one step closer to hell.

Silence.
Track Name: Shelters feat. Bryan Long of Dealey Plaza
A storm sweeps across the lands of tired folk
Nature unleashed the strongest earth quake
And her fury makes you fear
Everything lays in ashes
Since she had to endure too much
No one heard her warning
You can pray as much as you want
You will be buried in your shelters today
And we dig on and on
Cutting scars into earth's surface
With nothing but the date of payment in mind
We are passengers without a ticket
On a train that has got no brake
No destination, just following a circular path
We take it over, throw out any ballast to gain more speed
Until we are on pace with the beams of light
And run off the tracks out of the vicious circle, smiling
We fuck over the planet, now tell me
How does it taste, the blood on your hands?
Mother nature as hostage
But instead of being loved she gets tortured
We are linked in the system
However, if the picture turns
We will be exposed as insanity's host
Since we've cut the thread in twain
We drown in selfishness
And slowly starve to death
since we cannot sate the hunger for power
We chop down forests of family trees
We tear out the roots of our origin
Just to replace rotten teeth with gold
And the earth exterminates
A storm sweeps across the lands of tired folk
Nature unleashed the strongest earth quake
Her fury makes you fear
And Everything lays in ashes
Since she had to endure too much
No one heard her warning
You can pray as much as you want
You will be buried in your shelters today
Track Name: Disgrace
You walk this condemned earth like you created it. Yet you claim some god made and sent us. If that holds any truth what is our mission? Blightening the earth, disrupting the balance and rot out every species until we're the last one breathing? We scoop out the earth like it's a bowl of soup. Starvation is inexorable and dust will gather on your golden spoons. Just keep making great promises with beautiful lies.
YOU GOD DAMN DISGRACE
The greed of a few buried all. You built a wall around yourself with so-called morals, so tall, you can't see the suffering outside. For every building stone another living creature meets its death. But every castle will eventually be conquered. And so the reign of agony will end.
Liberty is kept in chains tied to people carrying money in both of their hands. It's nothing but a fairy-tale, told with the sweetest of all voices, putting us to sleep so we keep dreaming and wishing.. but never doubting.
Track Name: Faceless Beauty
Hey kids, let's talk about fairy tales.
There was once a woman full of purity. So wise even the minds of all elders summarized could not match her witness. She was the most beautiful thing, but never has a man set eyes on her. Even so, mankind worshipped this faceless beauty. They adored her, praised her. And no one asked for the truth. They just accepted it blindly. This ignorance made them sick. It devoured them from the inside. One by one perished mysteriously. However, they still brought sacrifical offerings day after day.
[Close the book]
Alright kiddos, go to sleep, it's bed time
I assure you'll have bad times if you caught up my bad tongue
'Cuz dis story ain't no fairytale at all, any man would know it all
With some brain to spend in thoughts
And it hurts to say that most humans are brain dead
Wanna go by trainwreck to meet their creator?
What is that.. bullshit?
How can someone be so exorbitantly blinded that he won't even see the vacuousness in a fucking fairy tale story? It's okay to believe, I believe too. I believe in logic and reason. But worshipping something pseudo-excogitated and ill-founded is neither logical, nor reasonable. Mankind has greater problems than sucking on someones imaginary god-cock.

Track Name: Ego Proxy
Hey you! Take a look in the mirror
Do you recognize the face that keeps staring back?
No? [Because] Day in day out
Your wired life is a perfect mess
Stop leeching off other peoples personality
Stop pretent to share the same dreams
While nightmares hunt you down in your sleep
The world around me is disgusting
It hides beneath piles of euphemism
Tables turn when your facade starts to crumble
And so-called friends just wait for their chance to backstab you
Turning our backs form the truth
It's so much easier to take than to give
Fuck your lies and all you've done
To enter this narcissistic elysium
Colleteral damage is the price you pay for your proxied ego
Have you never felt the taste of guilt on your tongue?
This is ignorance in its purest form
(oh gosh, i'm so sick of this world)
The sparkle in your eyes is fading
The world around me is disgusting
It hides beneath piles of euphemism
Stop leeching off other peoples personality
Stop pretent to share the same dreams
Hey you! Take a look in the mirror
Do you recognize the face that keeps staring back?
No? [Because] Day in day out
Your wired life is a perfect mess
Just keep your fake smile, pretend to care
Until the mask breaks, you realise there's no one there
You shall suffer alone
Track Name: Stray. Stay. Pray.
We stray through this forlorn place
We stay, gazing at the aftermath
We pray that our lives will be saved
Until the next war unfolds

There's no hope, no justice
Just this agonizing fear
The fear of death

It's always the same
It's one war after another
And the hunger of men
Versus the craving for power
While we seek to conquer land
We fall into traps we laid ourselves
Enduring the pain
Just to realise there's nothing to gain

We stray through this forlorn place
Counting our failures in hindsight
We never aimed to ruin this
Never aimed to ruin us
We persued our goals blindly
Ignoring what lies beneath
Temporary fortune outweighed consequences
Always on collision course
[With what didn't seem inevitable]
We stay, gazing at the aftermath
The things we can't change
Or didn't try changing
Now we pray that our lives will be saved
Until we get another chance
Until we fuck up again

We stray through this forlorn place
We stay, gazing at the aftermath
We pray that our lives will be saved
Until the next war unfolds

Where is the place that I belong to?
Where is the place that we call home?

We stray through this forlorn place
Counting our failures in hindsight
We never aimed to ruin this
Never aimed to ruin us
But we lost
Track Name: Changes
The world is in constant change. Technology, opinions and values change at everydays rate, but WE REFUSE TO CHANGE, TOO.
Our greed for technology, wealth and other objects of abstract value, including mankind’s reckless behavior towards our natural environment, has created a human ecosystem that cannot remain stable without continued technological progress.
With every wasted drop of water we're one step closer to our nemesis - not utopia. We bite off more than we can chew. We buy-out more than we consume. False idols lead our youth. All are at fault, not just me and you. And with every wasted drop of water we are one step closer to our nemesis - not utopia. Because rejection became a foreign word. The technology we like to think saves us controls us, destroys us.
Our insatiable greed for more technology has allowed humans to surpass earth's carrying capacity without limitations.
I have seen starving kids, while some fat fuck drowning in luxury devours mass produced toxic. I have not heard a true word for a long time now. All I see is hate in friendly faces. But it would be a disgrace, if we did not say a word. We need to refuse and reject. Lay down the crown of coziness. No excuses, no more dodging and mankind will see better days.
We have the ships to cross the sea, but we are sailing on the wrong course.
Track Name: Charlie Chaplin
Hook:
VMP ist da, man sieht Rivalen beim Versteckspiel
Denn auf einmal hat niemand mehr was zu sagen wie Charlie Chaplin
Du willst mich schlagen, denn ich paare mich mit deiner Dame auf dem Esstisch
Doch du traust dich nicht wie ein Paar dessen Hochzeit gecrasht wird

Verse:
Latschst in deinen Fairtrade Sandalen
Durch den englischen Garten
Meiner Ferienanlage
Mit deinem Fernglas
Bespannst du wie ich mit sehr vielen Damen
Im persischen Whirlpool entspanne
Bewunderst dann die sehr dicken Arme
Für die ich mehr als nur Fernseh' getankt hab
Und du kannst deine Tränen nicht halten
Ich kann meine Fresse, du deine Schwester nicht halten
Wenn sie zu mir rennt und sie später auf meinem Teppich geknallt wird
Welch ein lächerliches Antlitz
Ich spuck auf deine Fans, warte nicht auf bessere Zeiten
Nur auf etwas Konkurrenz, hab alle Zweifel beseitigt
Lieber zweitausend Feinde, anstatt leise zu bleiben
Und weiter zu biten ohne aus Reihen zu tanzen
Denn mit deinen Rhymes wirst du Faggot
Selbst von Weibern gehänselt
Ich bin weiterhin fame
Und die einzige Schelle
Die du peinliches Hemd je verteilst hast
Ist ähhh.. ein Klingelstreich
Denn ich hab nichts für euch übrig wie wenn man vier durch zwei teilt
Kauft ruhig weiter mit Mamis Taschengeld Facebook Likes ein
Ey; leg ich Sluts übers Knie sind sie nicht mehr Herr der Sinne
Du legst dir ne Schachtel Chips aufs Knie und gibst dir Herr der Ringe
Denn Fakt ist: du hast keine Frau anbei
Ist für dein Image ausschlaggebend so wie Hautkrankheiten
Ich hab nen Lastwagen voll Geld
Du sammelst Pfandflaschen du Held
Sitzt im Sandkasten und flennst
Weil ich dir deine Sand Castle zerschelle

Hook:
VMP ist da, man sieht Rivalen beim Versteckspiel
Denn auf einmal hat niemand mehr was zu sagen wie Charlie Chaplin
Du willst mich schlagen, denn ich paare mich mit deiner Dame auf dem Esstisch
Doch du traust dich nicht wie ein Paar dessen Hochzeit gecrasht wird
Track Name: Your Scene Still Sucks
Everybody is the target in this motherfucking club
We're going hard and everybody goes absolutely nuts
Everybody is the target in this motherfucking club
Broken bones, blood on merch, you ain't partying like us

Es ist Zeit für neue Regeln in Deutschland
Denn die Szene besteht nur aus kleinen Mädchen, wie furchtbar
Ist so todsicher wie Aids, dass ihr mit Musik keinen Erfolg habt
Für den Shit, den ihr bringt, würde man euch früher ans Kreuz nageln

Es ist VMP, jetzt wird der Moshpit zum Tatort
Und deine Scheinwelt liegt in Trümmern

Meine Lines sind Rufmord, deine Smalltalk für mich
Während deine Whore von mir bis(s) zum Morgengrauen gefickt wird
Sitzt du allein daheim und wichst auf Pornos, sonst nichts
Was für Morddrohungen? Ich box dich sofort um, du Wicht
Hatest im Internetforum, bist für die "Fans" ganz tight
Es gibt Natursekt fürs Ego und deinen Facebookhype
Und du Fotze stehst im Mosh Hoodie am Rand der Crowd
Bittest um Akzeptanz, doch jeder lacht dich aus

Es ist VMP
Der Rest ist bloß fake
Check mal dein Babe
Sie tanzt unseren Namen

Du willst wissen wer wir sind?
Schau direkt ins Gesicht
Deiner hässlichen Snitch
Bukkake all night long

Jetzt wird der Moshpit zum Tatort

Ob ich dir 'ne Kopfnuss verpasse, entscheidet Kopf oder Zahl
Ach, Scheiß drauf, du bekommst 'ne Platzwunde gratis
Ich schlag dein Kopf durch die Wand und du lässt den Kopf hängen
Wie der fast kopflose Nick aus Harry Potter
Denn das zwischen uns ist kein Kopf-an-Kopf Rennen
Wie bei siamesischen Zwillingen, bei denen Kopf an Kopf hängt
Du bist angepisst, willst Beef und sagst ich soll zu Gott beten
Das ist wie Kopfschüsse, das lässt man sich nur ein Mal durch den Kopf gehen

LOVE US; HATE US
YOU CAN'T BREAK US BECAUSE PASSION IS OUR ANCHOR
THIS IS MY FAMILY

ICH FICK EUCH FOTZEN BIS IHR BLUT SPUCKT
Track Name: Generation Degeneration
There is no cure for our greed we never needed. Having kissed the devils cheeks in hope for some minor treats that feed us with false sincerity we cheated our way down to the sea of hell, where nothing but nothingness greets us. Thieves disguised as priests now reach out to god with blood stained hands, begging to plant seeds of feelings other than grief into us.
We polished our precious gold until it shone like a second sun. And in the end we went blind from staring into something that never gave us any warmth at all.
YOU DISGUST ME
You claim that all life is equal while sticking price tags defining objective worth on every fucking individual being.
I don't feel proud using someone elses invention. I won't be happy with someone elses memories. The same way I can't appreciate my own life by eating someone elses corpse.
WE'RE NOT THE SAME
You probably think you're something worth thinking of
WE'RE NOT THE SAME
Maybe you believe someone believes in you
WE'RE NOT
You thought every word coming from your mouth was sweet
THE FUCKING SAME
Now the only thing coming from your mouth is blood
Track Name: When The Most Meaningless Moments Mean The Most To Us
Another day
Another cold morning without you
A soaking wet pillow summarizes last night's dream
Every single moment we lived through
Dances in smooth motions in front of me
Laughing and challenging

Your body so warm in the cold light of dawn
And our clothes scattered on the floor
Your face in your sleep is all I have left to remind me
Oh, the memories
Oh, the memories

You are just a phonecall away, but I am sitting in a dead spot
Just a phonecall away..

There is no "us" in "me" and "you" anymore
We are just two different life forms
On the same crumbling road
We have lost us in the crowd of empty faces
And after years of searching I abandon this quest
I will find my way
Whatever it takes
Wherever it takes me

Your body so warm in the cold light of dawn
And our clothes scattered on the floor
Your face in your sleep is all I have left to remind me
Oh, the memories
Oh, the memories

I keep running and walking and crawling on my journey to something other than regret. But every day I stray from the initial path, because the emptiness in me is like a black hole that eats away all the light and hope I had in my sleep. So everyday I see this world with new eyes and every day I wonder who I am. But there is something that never changes - I keep falling in love with the woman on the worn-out picture in my pocket. And while the face on the photo is slowly fading, it is steadily anchoring in my mind. This love is like envy on walls of a long lost ruin. It grows wildly in this seemingly barren place and watching it sprawl seems so beautiful. But before I know it the envy's poison flows through my heart. And I am still forgetting. In retrospective I hurts not knowing you do not search for the happiness that keeps your hope alive, but for a cure that keeps you away from death. But then again.. where is the difference?

This love is envy
My heart keeps breaking
All hope is fading
But I keep chasing

Just a phonecall away..
Track Name: Keep Me Alive
There is a time in life where all thoughts leave your head, all strenght leaves your bones and all emotion leaves your so-called soul. It's like you're back to the first moment of your birth - you just cry until you fall exhausted into sleep; except there'd be no waking up this time. But it's not the hole in me that brings me closer to death, it's the hope that keeps me alive. So after all the struggle I went through in the past, trying to solve the puzzle of my shattered heart. After all these steps my feet couldn't take anymore - just to end up in a dead end again. Here I am, lying unconscious in the renmants of the last war I fought with myself. Questioning the very purpose of my journey, wondering where it begun.
But at least I know now my feelings for you are real.
Because why would my heart ache with every beat it doesn't feel the warmth of your hand on my chest? And I just won't eat anything for days so the butterflies in my stomach can have their space. If these are no symptoms of love, then there is no love in this world.
