2.000 years of lies 2.000 years of promises and crimes To keep the human race Subjugated, tied up with a collar 'round its neck And you follow their rules You play the game of fools You blindly trust what's written in that book They promise you, Heaven, then threat you with hell For how long will this farce go on again and again? I need no consolation I need no consolation prize I need no condemnations For the errors of my life I do what I feel right Don't need no sermons about how I should behave I've already seen the light You're preaching love but then you're spreading hate And you follow their rules You blinded bigot fool You play the game that's written in that book They promise you Heaven then threat you with hell For how long will this farce go on again and again? I need no consolation I need no consolation prize I need no condemnations For the errors of my life And no indoctrination And no intimidations No recriminations I need no absolution at all

It feels like something got lost Thrown into the darkest of the nights Someone switched off our innocence, (our) excitement, our joy of life Where has it gone? When'd it begun? Who do we have to blame for what is lost? Remember there was a time When everything was shiny and bright? Mind what you are, fight what you fear, the bad that saved you from the worst Where has it gone? When'd it begun? Who do we have to blame for what is lost? Lost! Lost! Lost! We're candles in the night We're melting down like wax in a lifetime We're candles in the night We're shining brighter than a thousand stars And when you're closing your eyes Don't you forget where you come from When days are black, when there's no hope, when everything seems to be wrong Where has it gone? When'd it begun? Who do we have to blame for what is lost? Lost! (who do we have to blame for what is) Lost? Lost! We're candles in the night We're melting down like wax in a lifetime We're candles in the night We're shining brighter than a thousand stars

Born...dead, circumstances, so many chances Damned...blessed, built up fences never detained me Live (to) amuse, inspire, delight Here one day and gone one night Then work, run, don't be late It's all a mistake it's in our fate to die... ...and we'll all be the same...die... The funeral party has just begun Believe it or not it's gonna be such fun And you'll find the way it'll lead you upon my grave Teased, used, betrayed and abused Take the masks off your dirty faces You shameless, evil creeps You won't escape it's in our fate to die... ...and we'll all be the same...die...

As days go by, they become years From bad to worse, the end is nearer They promise this, they promise that Then nothing changes (but) you still vote for them They've got the right to kill, the right to lie They fool you around, with their smiles They represent my hate, but not my fear Can't stop my wish, my wish to kill 'em Frustration How can you be so blind, so cruel and dumb To act like that, to put your trust In those who steal from you, who eat your flesh Who drink your blood, who don't respect Even the slaughtered men, women's cries Children starve, our nature's dying? They represent my hate, but not my fear Can't stop my wish, my wish to kill 'em Frustration As days go by, they become years From bad to worse, the end is nearer I've got something stuck into my brain Can't stop my wish, I'm going insane Frustration

No truth is in my hands I am no preacher man I got no time to waste in listening what you say Got stabbed in my back Got ripped off by friends as well My skin's too tough for you to try to put me down I'll change when i m six feet under I'll rest when i m six feet under I'll stop when i m six feet under No, I ain't gonna give it up I ain't gonna give it up I'm gonna keep on living in tension, as always under pressure Always on the run Always been down for fun I keep on standing here and watch you fading away

Are we wandering to darkness? Are we waiting for someone to come To show us the way to go? Are we staring at the sunshine? Are we blinded by someone to come? His illusion is control! The paradox that drives us on The answer we've been looking for's Unreachable To live for nothing / to die for something? Living for nothing or dying for something? Seeking shelter in a shore, drenched There's no lighthouse through the clouds to see Through scars we heal and grow Marching alone, question once more, life's one closed door, unreachable.
