Track Name: The Machinist
Hello my friend I would like to know:
Are you afraid of the world’s end?
Do you feel alone?

I see you abandoned your values
But you said: “No, you’re wrong.
I just wanted to know where they are from.”

You said: “Maybe that is your magic spell.”
But you should fear the one.
I’m the machinist of hell

“Take it easy righteous man!
I know it’s for the cash machine”
Come on, stop making jokes of me
You have insulted my believes
I know there’s always truth in fiction
And you should fear the one
But moreover you should fear his holy son

And you said: “Well, maybe that is your magic spell.”
But you don’t look like someone
Who wants to go to hell
Where the gods wait for you
Where the gods wait for you

All drinks that you had last night
Couldn’t help against the anger
And all the songs that you wrote tonight
Couldn’t make it better

But I swear that I’ve got the answer
But I swear that I’ve got the answer
But I swear that I’ve got the answer
But I swear that I’ve got the answer

You said: „Maybe that is your magic spell.”
But you should fear the one.
I’m the machinist of hell
Track Name: Valley of Death
You’re scared of the fields beyond the wall
Maybe they speak another tongue
Can you see the light’s miles away?
A valley of death you never passed

You got immortal for the last time
And now you gonna die
Because you missed all the things you once aspired

I once loved the sound of my gun
Now I feel just the half of fun
Your Elysium became an illusion
And an animal like me became your prophet of regret

You got immortal for the last time
And now you gonna die
Because you missed all the things you once aspired

You smell like unconsciousness
A thousand years that you have lived
You said you just need a little time
But eternity has to be enough

You got immortal for the last time
And now you gonna die
Because you missed all the things you once aspired

You got immortal for the last time
And now you gonna die
Because you missed all the things you once aspired
Track Name: Hometown
My snail shell is the loveliest place
While I can’t see what’s behind the old oak tree
Hiding all those funny things
The world’s a moving and I’m a standstill

This is my home town
See you lost the way again
Where it could be better than here?
Where it could be less horror?

This whole street is crammed
With a lot of familiar faces
And it wouldn’t be so hard, and it wouldn’t be so hard
To find your very own secret places

This is my home town
See you lost the way again
Where it could be better than here?
Where it could be less horror?

This is my home town
See you lost the way again
Track Name: Battle Royale
The kids of the ninth grade have scared you to death
And that doesn’t seem to be the golden century now
And you always moan: “What will they become?”
And your lack of communication lets you hand them a gun

They lie on that green isle’s hill
Can you see how their black blood spills?
They sink in their burning tears
Can you see how their black blood spills?

You show what you know about education
And your teacher preaches the madness of your civilisation
And the ones who fell in love now, won’t never forgive
You crowded them on the island to see who is worth to live
Because the credo of the game is to win or die!
Well, that sounds familiar to me

They lie on that green isle’s hill
Can you see how their black blood spills?
They sink in their burning tears
Can you see how their black blood spills?

Maybe you have fun with that
Repeating the patterns of the past
A slaughter for the civilized world
Won’t make you feel safe
If they run away
