  • Streaming + Download



    We're crazy about hardcore and we pay the recording without any regrets or counting the loss.
    You can download everything for free.
    But please remember: Paying for underground music means much more then supporting the band, it helps keeping a subculture alive! And it helps saving the jobs of sound engineers.
    So please be fair, pay your ticket at the door, boykott guest lists on DIY-shows, buy the cd's, vinyls etc. or donate for it.
    We're responsible for this subculture! We're DIY! We're non-mainstream! We're underground! If we don't care about ourselves, nobody does!
    Keep the hardcore-punk subculture alive!
    Purchasable with gift card

kings /// lack of some humility in this sphere of luxury / this is what we forgot / the pretty stuff has cost a lot / the mass of luxury is not enough / starving for accumulation // but i hear complaining everywhere i turn // you have a lot of nerve / you think that you deserve all this stuff kid? // hedonists and narcissism / the point of self-denial is truly overcome / diffusion of norms / diffusion of values / the point of self-denial has been overrun // when it’s all about the label / kid you fool yourself / why don’t you get out and meet people that don’t judge you by your goods? // i’m used to draw a line between fashion and my life / no need to identify / no need to be classified // when it’s all about the label / kid you fool yourself / why don’t you get out and meet people that don’t judge you by your goods? // it’s time to come to terms / a superficial life / do it kid / draw the line / leave the mainstream / break with style
2.
mental /// i got a message from another life / and with the spirit I identified // 15 years drifting away / wave goodbye to the ordinary // a point of no return / now you can’t return // free to stay and feel the strain / live a lifestyle hard to explain / in an indefinable scene / but there’s one thing you miss elsewhere // mental attitude / fair / equal / eye to eye
3.
state of mind /// all those eyes can’t see the same / but the way we’re feeling is almost the same / in the face of our days / there’s not much love and too much hate /nothing has changed // walk the mainstream of today /what do you say? / express your feelings // my state of mind / i feel displaced, dissatisfied / i’m truly bored // i know we have much better times / you and me we have a life / i know a way / a better life // i do believe that we need room to breathe / my state of mind / displaced / dissatisfied
4.
digglersong /// today we drive long hours to a place we’ve never been / five kids & backline in an old car / risk their lives on crowded streets // just for the fun and the hardcore // payed some bucks / now where here / drinking water and some beer / soon we’re dancing on the floor / to the sound of… / i don’t care // at the top off the evening two kids are dancing hard / financial disastrous / ludicrous but with heart / just for the fun and the hardcore
5.
no regrets /// what we have is all that we’ve got / we got life, got time, some luck / but times are changing by now / and all we love is fading somehow // and there’s no chance to take it back / no chance to take your freedom back// i stare back and see what i have done / concerned about chances that are forever gone / but times are changing by now / and all this mourning is waste, somehow // i break this cage to free my mind // i raise my head and start to recognize / that i’m a slave to some immoral lies / that there is something more in life / than broken dreams and wasted time // live, love with no regrets
6.
prejudice // black and white / you know what? / i can’t hear it anymore / you see the world in black and white as if there’s nothing more // how hard would you miss prejudice? / do you get your kicks from prejudice? // how could you live without your scapegoats? / imagine you would have no one to blame / how could you live without your victims? / what’s up when you’ve got no one to blame? / how can you live? // this question eats my mind up // you know what? / I’ll never understand why you’re so fucking ignorant you could use your brain instead and live without prejudice / live
7.
powertrip /// i’m sick of this strange world / searching a place i can be / i’m sick of this power trip / giving proof without a need // are you sick? / i’m sick of this strange world / searching a place you can stay? / are you sick? /i’m sick of this power trip // i’m grasped by doubt / i am surrounded / by these smiling faces i’d like to pound on / pray to their boss / worship their job /and i’m among them, asking what went wrong // it’s strange to see / you’ve become someone / you never wanted to be power trip is sick / you live like someone / you never wanted to be / time to face myself / exhausted face / the wage of success is decay / i became a guy without a heart / stone cold, selfish, ignorant // it’s strange to see / you’ve become someone / you never wanted to be / power trip is sick / you live like someone / you never wanted to be / i wasted time but i carry on / as far as i can i will run away from this society / away from troubles i don’t need / carry on / as far as i can / i will run
8.
times /// the times that i remember / i was very young / i remember faces / grim with convictions / their skin was marked by furrows / eyes set like stone / lips trembling in anger / preaching wired thoughts // i won’t be like they are / no role model / unequal / cause in their eyes / i saw a spark / that was the brute / that’s who they are / that was the brute // the times that i remember / i was old enough to notice their nature of hate and racism /today i walk in sunlight / i can feel the warmth / the brute is fading / the tables have turned / that was the brute
9.
review /// blown away / i realize the circle starts again / it’s taken years / it was a struggle to build castles in the air / i lost myself in gaining value / lost sight in the whole lot i overrated until I got done // pay the price / learn from the mistakes / pay the price / never feel that safe // pride comes right before a fall / and I fell short and hard / how could i be that blind? / disgrace and shame became buddies / i’ve never learned that fast / i’ve learned a lesson i should have known // higher aims and faster games / you lose yourself / higher aims / not me / faster games / not me / lose yourself / not me / i keep it real
10.
generation /// society is back in battle / and it feels like no one cares / till death do us part / it’s an age of constant warfare and an irony of fate / till death do us part / we’ve passed the edge of sanity / so few do care and try to see // till death do us part // ever and anon / devotion is announced / short-sighted ecstasy / dogmatic policy // every generation makes the same mistake / till death do us part / every generation falls into this trap / till death do us part //the fightings become strong / dozens dead come home // and there’s no good to see /more rough than ready / the common mind is stunned / public opinion is numbed/ a lack of information / no future expectations // every generation makes the same mistake / till death do us part / every generation / falls into this trap // i’ve given up the ghost / the last spark of hope / died down in these wars / fen fires mark the way that we walk / till death do us part // no peace, no guarantees // till death do us part
