1. AMUSING OURSELVES TO DEATH

AMUSING OURSELVES TO DEATH
LIVING CAREFREE IN THIS WORLD OF EXCESS
WHERE MORE IS ALWAYS MUCH MORE
AND LESS IS ALWAYS THE LEAST

FUNNY BUT ALWAYS MISERABLE
SMILEY BUT INTERNALLY DEFORMED

EXCESS - WE LOVE IT
EXCESS - WE NEED IT
EXCESS - WE LOVE IT
EXCESS - WE NEED IT

WE FUCKIN' NEED IT

AMUSING OURSELVES TO DEATH
EMBRACING EMPTINESS
LOVING NOTHINGNESS
ACCEPTING MEANINGLESSNESS

FUNNY BUT ALWAYS MISERABLE
SMILEY BUT INTERNALLY DEFORMED

EXCESS - WE LOVE IT
EXCESS - WE NEED IT
EXCESS - WE LOVE IT
EXCESS - WE CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT IT

AMUSING OURSELVES TO DEATH
WHAT WE ACHIEVE?
LIFE IN A COFFIN CASE

LIVING CAREFREE IN THIS WORLD OF EXCESS
WHERE MORE IS ALWAYS MUCH MORE
AND LESS IS ALWAYS THE LEAST

EXCESS - EXCESS
EXCESS - EXCESS
EXCESS - EXCESS
WE FUCKIN' LOVE IT
EXCESS
WE FUCKIN' NEED IT

Track Name: Goodbye Mankind
2. GOODBYE MANKIND

THE FINGER IS ON THE RED BUTTON
THE FINGER PUSHES THE RED BUTTON
FIRE IN THE SKY
DEATH FROM ABOVE
THE SUN IS TURNING BLACK
DOOM COMES FOR ALL

DOOM COMES FOR ALL
DOOM COMES FOR ALL
DOOM COMES FOR ALL
DOOM COMES FOR EVERYONE

NOT IN THE SAME POSITION
NOT OF THE SAME CLASS
BUT WE WILL MEET AS EQUAL
ON THE EDGE OF COLLAPSE

LOGIC DIED
LOGIC DIED
LOGIC DIED
GOODBYE MANKIND
LOGIC DIED
LOGIC DIED
LOGIC DIED
GOODBYE MANKIND

GOODBYE MANKIND
MANKIND GOODBYE

8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, GOODBYE... MANKIND!

3. THE HUMAN MONSTER

MARCH!
MARCH!
MARCH!

FULL SPEED AHEAD TO ANNIHILATION
FULL SPEED AHEAD TO TOTAL DESTRUCTION

THE MIGHTIEST OF ALL THE MONSTERS
THE HUMAN MONSTER MARCHES ON

ARROGANT
GLUTTONOUS
AMBITIOUS
AVARICIOUS

THE HUMAN MONSTER MARCHES ON
GREEDY AND ALWAYS HUNGRY FOR MORE
THE HUMAN MONSTER MARCHES ON
'TILL NOTHING'S LEFT FROM THIS FUCKIN' WORLD

CRIMES LOOK SO FAMILIAR IN OUR MODERN TIMES
'CAUSE THE TASTE OF MONEY IS SWEETEST THAN THE TASTE OF HONEY

THE MIGHTIEST OF ALL THE MONSTERS MARCHES ON

EXTINCTION LOOK SO FAMILIAR IN OUR MODERN FUCKIN' LIVES
'CAUSE THE COLOUR OF DOLLARS IS BRIGHTER THAN ANY MORALS

THE HUMAN MONSTER MARCHES ON

Track Name: Live Your Myth In Greece
4. LIVE YOUR MYTH IN GREECE

WELCOME TO GREECE, WELCOME TO GREECE...
THE BEST DESTINATION FOR YOUR VACATION
THE SUN ALWAYS SHINES IN GREECE
THE BEST PLACE FOR PARTIES AT MYKONOS WITH MILLIONAIRE FREAKS

IF YOU ARE AN IMMIGRANT, WELCOME TO GREECE TOO
MANOLADA'S FIELDS OF STRAWBERRIES ARE WAITING FOR YOU
BUT YOU WILL WORK FOR FREE, DON'T DARE TO ASK FOR MONEY
YOU'LL GET SOME BULLETS IN YOUR BACK AND BYE-BYE HONEY BANNY

WORK MOTHERFUCKER WORK
ARBEIT MACHT FREI!

IN GREECE WE BUILT CIVILIZATION HUNDRENDS OF YEARS BEFORE THE REST
DEMOCRACY WAS BORN HERE THAT'S WHY WE FEEL WE ARE THE BEST
WHAT I SEE AROUND ME NOW IS NOTHING BUT A MESS
AND SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE I'M LIVING IN THE WILD - WILD WEST

2000 PEOPLE COMMITTED SUICIDE
'CAUSE THEY WERE UNABLE TO LIVE WITH DIGNITY THEIR LIVES
BUT WE ARE SO PROUD TO BE A PART OF THE EURO-ZONE
SO PROUD TO BE A FUCKIN' EURO PAWN

COME ON...
LIVE YOUR MYTH IN GREECE

THE BEST DESTINATION FOR YOUR VACATION
IS BALKAN’S MOST CORRUPTED NATION
COME AND LIVE YOUR MYTH IN GREECE
AND DON'T WORRY ABOUT THE EXCESSIVE USE OF CHEMICALS BY THE POLICE

WHAT DO YOU MEAN?
POLICE IS HERE TO SERVE AND PROTECT!

A COP MURDERED AN INNOCENT CHILD
AND A FASCIST'S KNIFE GAVE AN END TO A YOUNG MAN'S LIFE
LIVE YOUR MYTH IN GREECE
POLICE STATE OF TERRORISM
ROTTEN STATE OF FASCISM

WELCOME TO THE LAND OF YOUR DREAMS
BUT INSTEAD OF SYRTAKI YOU'LL LISTEN TO DESPERATE SCREAMS

LIVE YOUR MYTH IN GREECE
ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE

EXPLORE YOUR SENSES IN GREECE...

Lyrics: Jim Evgenidis

Track Name: 21st Century Caveman
6. 21ST CENTURY CAVEMAN

I TURNED MY BACK TO GOD
SINCE I'VE TASTED THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT
'CAUSE I FEEL LIKE A GOD MYSELF NOW
IN MY ARMANI SUIT
THE FRUIT WAS GREEN AND HAD THE FACE
OF BENJAMIN FRANKLIN
AND SINCE I'VE TASTED IT
IN EVERY CRIME FOR PROFIT, I AM IN...!

I'M A 21ST CENTURY CAVEMAN
I BEHAVE MORE LIKE AN APE THAN A MAN
KING OF MATERIALISM
KING IN THE JUNGLE OF CAPITALISM

I STEP ON OTHER PEOPLE'S HEADS
TO REACH THE TARGETS THAT I HAVE
YOU SEE... IT'S A COMPETITIVE WORLD
AND BUSINESS IS A REAL WAR

WAR! WAR!
WAR! WAR!
WAR! WAR!
BUSINESS IS A REAL WAR

I'M EMPTY OF FEELINGS BUT I'M FULL OF NUMBERS AND STATISTICS
I'M A POWER-CRAZED MOTHERFUCKER, RICH AND EVIL AND SADISTIC
OH YEAH... REALLY SADISTIC
MY SKILLS IN RUINING HUMAN LIVES ARE ALMOST ARTISTIC
THE LAW OF THE JUNGLE IS THE BEST
'CAUSE IT PUTS NO LIMITS TO MY PRIMITIVE INSTINCTS

THE FRUIT WAS GREEN AND HAD THE FACE
OF GEORGE WASHINGTON
AND SINCE I'VE TASTED IT
I BECAME BIG AND STRONG LIKE KING KONG
I OPEN SKULLS AND I BREAK BONES
THE TRUE NAME OF GOD IS DOW JONES
WHEN IT'S ABOUT MONEY I GO FRENZY
I WANT TO RULE THIS LAND OF PLENTY

I'M A 21ST CENTURY CAVEMAN
I BEHAVE MORE LIKE AN APE THAN A MAN
KING OF MATERIALISM
KING IN THE JUNGLE OF CAPITALISM

I STEP ON OTHER PEOPLE'S HEADS
TO REACH THE TARGETS THAT I HAVE
I DON'T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT THE HUMAN PAIN
I COULD KILL FOR THE MONETARY GAIN

KILL! KILL!
KILL! KILL!
KILL! KILL!
FOR MY PROFIT I COULD KILL

EVERYTHING IS NEVER ENOUGH
NEVER ENOUGH...
THE MORE I HAVE, THE MORE I WANT
AND WHEN I HAVE IT ALL... I WILL SCREAM FOR SOME MORE!!!

Track Name: The End Of Hibernation
7. THE END OF HIBERNATION

OUR ANGER WILL BURST AND THIS WORLD WILL BURN
'CAUSE WE HAVE DREAMED OF ANOTHER LIFE
OUR ANGER WILL BURST AND THIS WORLD WILL BURN
'CAUSE WE HAVE DREAMED OF ANOTHER WORLD

TO THE BARRICADES
TO THE BARRICADES
LISTEN TO THE SOUND OF FREEDOM
VICTORY CALLING US LOUD

WE RISE AGAINST OPPRESSION
WE ARE READY FOR THE FUTURE
YESTERDAY IS DEAD AND GONE
WE'RE MARCHING TOWARDS TOMORROW

TO THE BARRICADES

WE ARE DETERMINED TO LIVE THIS DREAM:
A BULLET IN THE HEAD OF EVERY BASTARD TO KEEP THE COUNTRY CLEAN

THE TRUMPETS OF FREEDOM SOUNDED ONCE MORE
TIME TO DESTROY THE OLD WORLD
TODAY WE OCCUPY THE NATION
IT'S THE END OF HIBERNATION

BUILDERS OF BABYLON
WHAT YOU'VE CREATED WILL NOT LAST
BY TOMORROW IT WILL BE DUST
AND THE NEXT DAY WILL BE BRIGHT
BECAUSE THE TYRANT DIES TONIGHT
NO MORE LIFE IN PAIN AND SORROW
NO LONGER SLAVES TO THE FEAR OF TOMORROW
WE FIGHT FOR TOMORROW TODAY
WE FIGHT TODAY FOR ALL OUR TOMORROWS

TO THE BARRICADES
TO THE BARRICADES
TO THE BARRICADES
OUR VISION IS TAKING SHAPE

WE RISE AGAINST OPPRESSION
WE ARE READY FOR THE FUTURE
YESTERDAY IS DEAD AND GONE
WE'RE MARCHING TOWARDS TOMORROW

Track Name: Crash Test Dummies
9. CRASH TEST DUMMIES

24 HOURS A DAY IN PANIC
IN THIS LOVE WE'RE CRASH TEST DUMMIES
LET'S HURT EACH OTHER, LET'S GET FUCKED
LET'S TEAR OUR SOULS APART

WHEELS ON FIRE, BURNING RUBBER
DEMONS AWOKEN AND NOBODY'S SOBER
V8 ENGINE SOUNDS LIKE THUNDER
WHO WILL SAVE US FROM THIS MADNESS WE'RE UNDER?

ACCELERATE
MAXIMUM SPEED
BRUTAL LOVE
EVIL SUPREME
ACCELERATE
MAXIMUM SPEED
NOBODY HOLDS
THE STEERING WHEEL

I LOVE SO MUCH THE WAY YOU HURT ME
I'M IN LOVE WITH THE WAY YOU KILL ME
IN OUR MINDS INSANITY THRIVES
NO ONE HERE GETS OUT ALIVE

24 HOURS A DAY IN PANIC
IN THIS LOVE WE'RE CRASH TEST DUMMIES
LET'S GET FUCKED, LET'S GET CRASHED
LET'S TEAR OUR SOULS APART

ACCELERATE
MAXIMUM SPEED
BRUTAL LOVE
EVIL SUPREME
ACCELERATE
MAXIMUM SPEED
NOBODY HOLDS
THE STEERING WHEEL

I LOVE SO MUCH THE WAY YOU HURT ME
I'M IN LOVE WITH THE WAY YOU KILL ME
ALL WILL END WITH BROKEN BONES AND BURNING FLESH
SO LET'S RIP OUT OUR HEARTS AND EAT THEM WHILE THEY'RE STILL FRESH

WE CAN'T STOP IT NOW
EVEN IF WE WANTED TO

WE CAN'T AVOID THE COLLISION... THAT'S FOR SURE
SO LET'S PUSH THE ACCELERATION PEDAL SOME MORE

Track Name: Theatre Bizarre
10. THEATRE BIZARRE

IN THE THEATRE BIZARRE
IDIOT PEOPLE ACT
IN THE THEATRE BIZARRE
CORRUPTED PEOPLE DIRECT
POLITICAL THRILLER
WITH ELEMENTS OF BLACK COMEDY
EXILE, GRUESOME TORTURES
AND POLICE BRUTALITY

AND THE SHOW GOES ON...

IN THE THEATRE BIZARRE
TANKS ARE MARCHING ON THE STREETS
KILLING UNIVERSITY STUDENTS
FIGHTING FOR THEIR BELIEFS
IN THE THEATRE BIZARRE
AMERICA IS PULLING THE STRINGS
OF MARIONETES IN MILITARY
UNIFORMS AND SINISTER GRINS

HARDCORE SCENES
NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED
WITH CLOWNS INSPIRED BY GERMANY'S
FAR - RIGHT NATIONALIST PARTIES

A LOT OF PAIN
A LOT OF BLOOD
A LOT OF HORROR
IN THE THEATRE BIZARRE
ATROCITY
INHUMANITY
PEOPLE FORGET WHO THEY REALLY ARE
IN THE THEATRE BIZARRE

BEHIND THE PLANS OF EVERY SCUM
IS HIS FAVORITE UNCLE SAM

A LOT OF PAIN
A LOT OF BLOOD
A LOT OF HORROR
IN THE THEATRE BIZARRE
ATROCITY
INHUMANITY
PEOPLE FORGET WHO THEY REALLY ARE
IN THE THEATRE BIZARRE

A PSYCHO BECAME FREEDOM'S ABDUCTOR
PUTTING OF HIS FACE THE MASK OF A BENEFACTOR

HOPE COMES FROM FRANCE
IN A SHINY LIMOUZINE
THE LIE OF REFORMATION
IS THE BEST MONEY MAKING MACHINE
BIG TALKS ABOUT PROSPERITY
BETTER DAYS AND OTHER CRAP
CHEESE FOR FREE YOU CAN FIND
ONLY IN A MOUSE TRAP

AND THE SHOW GOES ON...
AND THE MADNESS GOES ON AND ON AND ON...

Track Name: Escaping The Womb
11. ESCAPING THE WOMB

ESCAPING THE WOMB
ENTERING THE PRISON WORLD
SCHOOL, FACTORY, GRAVEYARD
AND ALL COMES TO AN END

THIS CIRCLE OF LIFE SEEMS SO POINTLESS
THIS CIRCLE MAKES MAN SEEM SO USELESS

FROM BIRTH TO GRAVE - PAIN
FROM BIRTH TO GRAVE - SLAVE

WHAT'S THE VALUE OF LIFE
IF WE HAVE TO LIVE THIS WAY?
IS HAPPINESS AN UTOPIA?
THIS CANNOT BE REAL...
...LIFE IS SOMEWHERE ELSE

Lyrics: Jim Evgenidis
Music: Jim Evgenidis, Constantin Maris
