LYRICS 

 

Zuckerberg Sucks

He knows what Iʼve been thinking , My secrets, my deepest fears

He knows what Iʼve been doing, What no-one else should hear

He ripped my identity , And digitized my friends

He feeds on my emotions , But he never shook my hand

 

Go, go feed the monster , You ‘ve got what it wants

Go, go feed the monster, You ‘ve got what it needs

It swallows your ego, it craves for your soul

Zuckerberg sucks , Zuckerberg sucks

 

Likes on my timeline,  Thatʼs all Iʼll ever get

Itʼs dope for my circuits, For the bubbles inside my head

Heʼs master of the universe,  Where God once used to be

No places to be hiding, Heʼs in your mind, heʼs inside me

 

Donʼt,  donʼt feed the monster, You know what it wants 

Donʼt,  donʼt feed the monster, You know what it needs 

It swallows your ego, it craves for your soul                       

Zuckerberg sucks, Zuckerberg sucks


Break

Unplug your computer, unhook your account,

Reclaim your identity, go detox your mind

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Whatsapp, leave them alone

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Whatsapp, leave them alone

cause They're selling your soul , cause thery're selling your soul

Heʼs mining your data, Heʼs also mining mine

Heʼs selling your identity, To future masterminds

He seeks for world dominion, As pres of the USA

The story's always the same,  Hope you guess my name

 

Donʼt,  donʼt feed the monster, You know what it wants

Donʼt,  donʼt feed the monster, You know what it needs

It swallows your ego, it craves for your soul

Zuckerberg sucks, Zuckerberg sucks

Zuckerberg sucks, Zuckerberg sucks

 

 

 

Black Widow 

With the brains of a lizard And a venomous voice

She sneeked into his  life

He didnʼt have much choice

She seemed to be  lovinʼ And petended to care 

Just buying insurance

Now heʼs trapped in her stare

 

Boy youʼd better run Boy, youʼd better run

Boy youʼd better run Boy, youʼd better run, run, run, run, run, run

 

Sticky as a  spiderʼs web  Lazy as a  snail

You canʼt really  trap her

With her  lizardlike tail

In her spell of isolation  He killed off his friends

Soon his sister followed 

Now where would this end

 

Boy youʼd better run Boy, youʼd better run

Boy youʼd better run Boy, youʼd better run, run, run, run, run, run

 

He first stabbed his children Than went for his dad

He smiled as he killed them

Emotionally dead

Pleased with his efforts He went back to his wife

She put her sting into his belly

And so ended his life

 

Boy youʼd better run Boy, youʼd better run

Boy youʼd better run Boy, youʼd better run, run, run, run, run, run

 

Boy youʼd better run Boy, youʼd better run

Boy youʼd better run Boy, youʼd better run, run, run, run, run, run

 

 

 

Strange(R)

There is no reason    For you to go

If you stay here now  And let it grow

This land is your land  Strange how this Works

You speak our language   You say itʼs hurts

 

Youʼre no stranger  Who knocks on my door,

Youʼre not a bad guy  meant to sleep on the Floor

Youʼre no stranger   Who knocks on my door, 

youʼre not a bad guy    

meant to sleep on the Floor, on the Floor, on the Floor

 

(Migrant Spoken)  

The Sky is grey,   The sun went down

I sit here and i wait, For whatʼs will come soon. 

My kids they are born here.  My kids they donʼt understand. 

Think they are wrong folks. Why should they be that hard!

Their friends they cry and yell.     But no amnesty,

But no amnesty, but no amnesty, but no amnesty, 

but no amnesty, but no amnesty

 

(Migrant sings)

Please help me, hear my voice

Make  a human choice

Try to Justify, only want my rights

They claim this ground,

But thatʼs an eary sound.

 

Your no stranger  Thatʼs knocks on my door,

Your not a bad guy, meant to sleep on the Floor, on the Floor, on the Floor

 

Please help me, hear my voice

Make  a human choice

Try to Justify, only want my rights

They claim this ground,

 

Please help me, hear my voice

Please help me, hear my voice

Please help me, hear my voice

 

 

 

I lost My Mind

Let’s hold each other tight

That feels so enormously right

Warm in these cold decade

Please help me out of this shade

 

You say: the two of us coming  out real strong,

I like to believe you’re not that wrong

I move close to you to  feel your breath

Oh darling I feel terrible stressed

 

I lost my mind, I lost my sense

Mad man makes this world  too intense

Go away, go away, get out of my brain

Stop that dreadful purple rain

 

Now you lay next to me sweet asleep

I stared into the night dark and deep

Trouble shooting fills my mind

How can I get off and were can I find

 

Break

Where , where can I go

They expect me to know

I tried to see!

But there’s no key!

 

I don’t see my track?

I’s cold outside

I can’t make it mine

Please give me a sign…

 

I lost my mind, I lost my sense

Mad man makes this world  too intense

Go away, go away, get out of my brain

Stop that dreadful purple rain

 

I lost my mind

I lost my sense

I lost my mind

I lost my sense

 

 

 

Fear

I don’t know what i see

Don’t know what i hear

I can get through it

Hate that fear

It’s banging in my head

Don’t trust no one more

 

Sit all alone here

Hide behind my door

Don’t know what I see

Don’t know what I  hear

I can get through it

Just that fear

 

Go away  from my door

You don’t come in here

You don’t get me

Go away from my door

You don’t come in here

You don’t get me

 

Newspapers blocked my windows

Smashed my tv on the floor

Taped all the wall sockets

They will not come through my door

It’s the end of time

They come to take over

 

But I don’t surrender

I never changes over

Newspapers blocked my windows

Smashed my tv on the floor

Taped all the wall sockets

They will not come through my door

 

Go away  from my door

You don’t come in here

You don’t get me, you don’t get me

Go away from my door

You don’t come in here

You don’t get me

You don’t get me

 

Go away  from my door

You don’t come in here

You don’t get me

You don’t get me

Go away from my door

You don’t come in here

You don’t get me

You don’t get me

 

 

 

Betrayal

Farewell my friend, I guess it must have hurt you

So I’m the badass who stabbed you in the] back
The knife was sharp I guess you hardly noticed
The lights they were dimmed to  black

Lately there seemed no room for  error
Once the red line’s drawn, there is no turning back
The feeling’s gone and I look back in  wonder
Once the  red line’s drawn, there is no turning back

The  tale’s ancient, the words  too easily spoken
A  rooster calls  three times in a row
Betrayal, betrayal, betrayal
It had to be I knew it all along

So mister righteous, so cocky so self-assured
Always smart & loud, never wrong
Did you  ever have a  sense of hesitation
A thousand shades of pale that’s not your song

So who pulled the plug? well I’m glad it’s  done
Memories wiped out without regret
And if there’s  ever any doubt, so be it
Farewell my friend, it’s over now I’m out

The tale’s ancient, the words too easily spoken
The rooster calls three times in a  row
Betrayal, betrayal, betrayal
It had to be  I knew it all along

There are no reminders, there is no regret 8x

 

 

Mr Hipster

Hey Mr Hipster
Looking for your soul Mr Hipster?
Tryin’ to lose control Mr Hipster
Searchin’ for a goal?

Hey Mr Hipster
Where’s your authentic self Mr Hipster
You look like someone else Mr Hipster
Better try some rock and roll ?

Hey Mr Hipster
I don’t like your beer Mr Hipster
You just copy ancient trends Mr Hipster
Now try some rock and roll

Hey Mrs Hipster
You look pretty cute mrs Hipster
How come you like those beards Mrs Hipster
Better try some rock and roll

Hey Mr boomer

So you think you’re a boomstar Mr boomer

Hey Mr boomboom, hipstar

The Drones Are Coming

The drones are coming
Coming to destroy

We should look for shelter
There’s no escape from here

The firestorm is coming
I can see the glow ahead
The firestorm is coming
I am waiting for you dear

The firestorms are coming
There’s nowhere to hide”
“The firestorms are coming
There’s nowhere to hide

Nowhere to hide
Nowhere, nowhere, nowhere to hide

Nowhere, nowhere, nowhere to hide

 

Nowhere, nowhere, nowhere to hide

 

 

 

Lockdown Lover   

I want to smell the street outside again

I want to walk through the women’s perfume again

Want to hear the sound of a rocking room …..   a rocking room ……    again….

 

Let’s go out on the street

Let’s get life into our bodies!

Let’s go out on the street

Let’s get life into our bodies!

This lockdown lover will catch you

This lockdown lover will  catch you

 

You say you’re worried

You say that things turn wrong

But this lockdown lover don’t want to hear this shit this night.

Let’s have a  some brisk and hold each other tight ……    hold each other tight

 

Let’s go out on the street

Let’s get life into our bodies!

Let’s go out on the street

Let’s get life into our bodies!

This lockdown lover will catch you

This lockdown lover will  catch you

 

See the people outside the street,

There hunger and the will to have love

I am the locked down lover to open your mind.

Baby, we both are needed to obey the call…..    obey the call……    obey the call

 

I’m a Lockdown Lover,  I’m a Lockdown Lover,  I’m a Lockdown Lover,   

Yarn for a new order, Yarn for a new order

I’m a Lockdown Lover, I’m a Lockdown Lover

 

 

 

Undone

They say that you've changed
When everyone else stays the same
Ignoring the past
Bitterly taking the pill
And they are still here
Where they have always been
Wasted away
The madness has left all undone
And climbing back up
Is it still you that we


I only have 1 life
Better have 2 lives
I am wishing for a 3rd one to save up for the bad times
If I could ride a horse
I would ride away


They live in the past
Created a world of their
Into the light
Filling their eyes once more
Of what they cannot
Even dare put a-side
And what will remain
Keeps us alive for too long


I only have 1 Life
Better have 2 Lives
I'm wishing for a 3d one to save up for the bad times
If I could ride a horse
I would ride away
It would take a long long time
Before I finally found my way
Heey, hey, hey hey, hey
Heey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

Baby Please Break My Heart
My heart 's been unbroken
For many, many years
My heart 's been unbroken
I couldn't find the tears


I never missed a heartbeat
I never missed the heat
I just kept surviving
On the wasteland of my soul


But now I need a surgeon
Take me to the ER
I'm just short of dying
I've never been this far


I moved like a zombie
Stumbling 'long the road
Nearly missed the signal
To your postal code


Blinded by a workload
Of non-sense things to do
Forgot about this feeling
When your heart needs a glue


But now I need a surgeon
Take me to the ER
I'm just short of dying
I've never been this far

 

Break
I just met you in the bar room
I just saw you on tv
I couldn't help but staring
Blue eyes beamed right through me
Completely undefended
Completely unprepared
My heart beats like a madman
I'm feeling kind a scared


Baby I'm so grateful
For breaking my heart
I couldn't keep on living
You just took me apart
