Track Name: High Hopes
Everything changes so fast
So restless in movement
For life improvement
Everyone hopes for the best
It's harder to keep up the pace
In all directions
Without feeling anxious
As days fly by in a haze

We'll find a way to make it through
The darkest times

We've got our hopes high
For a better life
For someone to find
A cure for mankind
We've got our hopes high
For an easy ride
Blinded by the light
We keep our eyes closed tight

We are refining this art
Of making excuses
To rather be useless
Than to play our part
Desperate for someone to trust
Afraid of decisions
We believe politicians
Denying mistakes of the past

Hope without action is just a dream
Mere good intentions won't set us free

We'll find a way to make it through
The darkest times
A miracle is what we wish
And so tonight

We've got our hopes high
For a better life
For someone to find
A cure for mankind
We've got our hopes high
For an easy ride
Blinded by the light
We keep our eyes closed tight

Hope without action is just a dream
Mere good intentions won't set us free
Track Name: Simple Dreams
Clouded vision, blurry eyes
Never look up to the skies
Ads for breakfast, ads for lunch
Picking best of a bad bunch

We find comfort in this noise
Playing with our shiny toys
Definition of the truth
Isn't much for us to lose

We are led by the hand but our hands are tied
Given these simple dreams, we will not decide
We will say what they think, we will think what they say
And never dare to disobey

You will never be alone
Just stay inside your comfort zone
Move along, don't be afraid
All the choices have been made

You'll get everything you need
To produce, consume and breed
Let them care about your health
Live your life for someone else

We are led by the hand but our hands are tied
Given these simple dreams, we will not decide
We will say what they think, we will think what they say
And never dare to disobey
There has to be another way

Oh how fortunate we are
Living in these times of change
Follow the lead and pay close attention
To all these handmade celebrity fascinations
Track Name: Primal Needs
Sacrifice your life for this
Gratify the primal needs
This is what you call happiness
Lose yourself in this abyss
Sacrifice your life for this
Gratify the primal needs
This is what you call happiness
Beg for more down on your knees

The only thing you'll ever want
Better than anything you've felt before
Replace the feelings with a pill
An overwhelming rapture at your will

It can stop the world from fighting
And like an ultimate machine
Everyone will be united
In this never ending dream

Enjoy your ride along this way
With little price that you will have to pay
The bitter lesson to be learnt
The only thing that you will ever want

No more hopes, no aspirations
Satisfied beyond your needs
This is modern great salvation
Stand in line to get your fix

Sacrifice your life for this
Gratify the primal needs
This is what you call happiness
Lose yourself in this abyss
Sacrifice your life for this
Gratify the primal needs
This is what you call happiness
Beg for more down on your knees
Track Name: Happy Slaves
Rules are being changed
While we are asleep
Have we been deranged
Has it grown too deep

I am a happy slave
Until the end of my days
I'm marching into a grave
With a smile on my face

Sinking in this slumber
Embracing oblivion
Mercifully plundered
Softened minds are giving in

And as long as the pleasure lasts
I will do anything they ask

I am a happy slave
Until the end of my days
I'm marching into a grave
With a smile on my face
Track Name: Dead Machines
How many days have passed
The tools that we've created and adored
Have turned to dust
And so the moaning lasts
We carry on

We are at last
Free and awake
Clinging to past
Built to break

These machines will stop and fall apart
Taking us back to the start

There's nothing left from days long gone
Not even memory of glory of a mind
Just dead machines
And piles of broken dreams
We've made of stone

Out of the dream
Silent and sad
Suddenly clean
Of copper and lead

These machines will stop and fall apart
Taking us back to the start
These machines will stop and fall apart
Taking us back to the start

In this new life every second counts
So from now on when we are in doubt
We'll remember crashing down the slope
Of inaction and holding on to hope

These machines will stop and fall apart
We will see at last who we really are
