Track Name: This Is Paranoia
Yeah now we know you´re gonna say this is paranoia
we hate to break it to you
but we came to this conclusion
the world we´re living in needs a revolution
what would you expect
when stupidity is glorified and ignorance is bliss

yeah now we know you´re gonna say this is paranoia
we have to break it to you
not gonna live by your rules
what would you expect
when you´re always afraid to wake up

we hate to break it to you
but your life is an illusion
the ideals you follow are nothing but mind pollution
what would you expect
when stupidity is glorified and ignorance is bliss
we hate to break it to you
but your life is an illusion
and now we are just adding to your confusion
what would you expect
when stupidity is glorified and ignorance is bliss

yeah now we know you´re gonna say this is paranoia
we have to break it to you
not gonna live by your rules
what would you expect
when you´re always afraid to wake up
because you fear all that is real
it´s easier to shut your eyes
and go to sleep
shut your eyes

it´s easier
it´s easier to shut your eyes
shut your eyes

holding on to fabricated dreams
always staying in your comfort zone

say this is paranoia
Track Name: Sad Reality
and I remember everything that you said to me
when we were talking a bout our sad reality
that things were wrong
and that things were bad
that everything was part of a plan
but now we´ve learned, we´ve changed our ways
(I remember a sad reality)
with open eyes we see their hate
so look for the signs and know the crimes
they're always waiting for their time to come back again

I remember
a sad reality
that everything was part of a plan
that things were wrong
and that things were bad
I remember
the insanity

I remember everything that you said to me
in the days of our lost humanity
but now we´ve learned, we´ve changed our ways
they're always waiting for their time to come back ag
Track Name: Being Number One
now get the fuck up
this is not the end
no, this is where we stand up
and fight
for what´s right
this is not the end

caught in a chase to own
always afraid of
being the last one
taught to be in control
to never show fear
and always be the one
who gets it all

what the hell is going on now
this can´t be the end
what we see and what we feel
it is time to take a stand

stand

we´re moving
no longer staying here
we´re changing
there´s nothing left to fear
we are hoping
and learning
with time
we are fighting
and turning the tide

stand
we´re changing
there´s nothing left to fear

you´re caught in a chase to own
all for the sake of
being number one
something to show
you´re caught in a chase to own
always afraid of
being the last one
nothing to show
Track Name: Beware Of Snakes
Now we must stand up
and show them what we´ve got
the coin is rolling
choose your side
and we are holding'our heads high
the time has come to show them

you can not stop this
call to arms
we hear the sound of moving forces
hear the sound of
your time is running out
we have seen behind the lies
and now we´re coming
we´re coming for you

now we must stand up and show them what we´ve got
and we will not give in, no we will not give up
your time is running out
your time is running
and now we´re coming
we´re coming for you

be aware
of snakes

you must be aware
be aware of the snakes
that are crawling
inside your head

you can not stop this
call to arms
hear the sound of
we have seen behind the lies
you sell us
your time is running out
we have seen behind the lies
we´re coming
we´re coming for you

be aware
of snakes
they´re crawling in your head
Track Name: Tomorrow
Who can ever wash away
the pain we feel each day
have we lost all our sanity
or will there be a change

I´ll find my way to freedom
I´ll find my way
to live the life I dream of
and I will not look back

will you ever wash away
the pain you feel each day
could you learn from
the voice within
and try to make a change
could you change

I will find my way
whatever it may take
I´ll find my way
to live each day my way
