Track Name: The Dancing Escapist
The scandal is on the higher ground
I read the news and it couldn’t be worse
So tell me why why why
Should that be my concern?

The amount of lies and fraud is increasing
Congruent to my dancing events
Four days at a stretch
We were celebrating Halloween

Who said that we need a cause for the next drinks to buy?


Who said that we need a cause for the next drinks to buy?
After I ran through the town I fled from the light


My dearest one, can you feel the heavy rhythm?
Louder and louder it surrounds me
I can’t remember why we are feting
We rather should dance a last fair waltz
Something I can laugh about

A last fair waltz
Something I can laugh about


After I ran through the town I fled from the light
After I ran through the town I fled from the light
I fled from the light
I fled from the light
Track Name: Ivory Tower
The situation of your home ain’t quite accurate
The flames of war crawl over your land
You've got to understand it’s about a pile of money
That’s why I built my house on a pile of bodies

That cynical game was not my idea
But I can’t deny my profits
If you cannot vault the pit with the pikes
The way to fortune is locked for you


Bad luck this time for your ride
To the ivory tower
The graves of those who drowned tonight
Won’t see any flower
Well I don’t know where I can swim
At the coast of Italy
There’re countless corpses miles away
That the sea devours


Those of you who made the crossing
Are crowded in a rotten hole
See our friendship is quite one-sided
We couldn’t give you much more

All of our wealth is more important than you
The place in the sun is rare
Even if you could vault the pit with the pikes
The place of fortune is locked for you


Bad luck this time for your ride
To the ivory tower
The graves of those who drowned tonight
Won’t see any flower
Well I don’t know where I can swim
At the coast of Italy
There’re countless corpses miles away
That the sea devours


Better luck next time for you ride
To the ivory tower
The graves of those who drowned tonight
Won’t see any flower
Well I don’t know where I can swim
At the coast of Italy
There’re countless corpses miles away
That the sea devours
That the sea devours
That the sea devours
Track Name: Exile Song
This story isn’t finished yet but it’s worth telling you
That democracy ain’t working in the European U
A former spy revealed things that you never should hear
Now he’s got a ticket to a post-socialist state to disappear

And I don’t know if he’ll ever get caught
The thing he’d done wasn’t treason, it’s a moral revolt
And the ministry doesn’t seem to be shocked anymore
And we’ll raise the flag again for our western big brother
Track Name: I Didn't Sign Up For This
The natural state is out of control
But the problem is solved now
We are too lazy for another decade
Of this barbaric lifestyle

We bow to the leviathan
The writer of our rules
Its right entangles our shapes
Pretending that there’s no choice left


I didn’t sign up for this
I didn’t sign up for that
The old contract is broken
Even if they chase my tracks

I didn’t sign up for this
I didn’t sign up for that
The old contract is broken
They may hunt me to death


That gargantuan beast
Won’t get sick of gobblin' me
We let it think for us
Well comfort has its price

Now we reared a hutch of bloaters
That’s what we all became
Now I think about to quit
Or at least I claim

The monster promised harmony
It promised super security
In return it demands for my
Unofficial immaturity


I didn’t sign up for this
I didn’t sign up for that
The old contract is broken
Even if they chase my tracks

I didn’t sign up for this
I didn’t sign up for that
The old contract is broken
They may hunt me to...


I didn’t sign up for this
I didn’t sign up for that
The old contract is broken
Even if they chase my tracks

I didn’t sign up for this
I didn’t sign up for that
The old contract is broken
They may hunt me to death

I didn’t sign up for that
I didn’t sign up for that
The old contract is broken
Track Name: Clochard
I don’t want to work again
Even if I get paid
My concentration suffers
And I rather get laid

I sold my wakin' life
For a starvation wage
And when I close my eyes
They’re dancing on my inner stage


Admonish yourself
To keep your composure


In your algorithm
I’m a part of the mechanical swirl
Everything is predictable
Even that I rather kiss my girl

When November has come
They jump from the bridge
They displaced each other
In the game “How to get rich”

I could run amok
Got a better idea
When they start to yell at you
Say: “Goodbye my dear...”


Admonish yourself
To keep your composure


I’m not better than you
And not worse than others
Among those lazy fools
I’m not quite conspicuous

I don’t want to work again
Even if I get paid
My concentration suffers
And I rather get laid
