Back in year zero

by Antidote

Politicians buy the media To cover up their blah blah blah Truth is always the first casualty Media controls democracy With money they get their message on TV And that is all the people see The media lost its independency Money killed democracy
Pride 01:37
This was settled years ago Why you bring it up I don't know You are so bloody stubborn leave me alone Can't you see I'm watching the show What the hell is your problem I guess it is your pride Everybody sees that you are wrong Do you really have to fight Can't you really see that you are wrong You always jump into offense Stupid pride you defend It really doesn't make any sense
Identity 01:29
All countries of Europe Together on the road Well isn't this what Hitler tried 60 years ago Shove the euro down our throat Take our borders away But I don't wanna live in a 2nd USA....NO!
I'm clicking the remote But there's nothing on tv I wanna have some action So I go out on the streets People stare at me They give me angry eyes I'm the only punk in town And again I realise It's quiet in the city It's quiet in my town See the people laughing Cos I'm the only one around What happened to punk? People think I am a clown If there were just a few more punx They wouldn't stare and frown I spray "PUNK" on a wall They won't get me on my knees I'll show that punk is in this town A shame the only punk is me.... Today I saw some new punx How happy can I be A new generation The start of a new scene? We've got to go togehter I'm sure we'll get along Now i'm sure that I was right Punk wil never end Now there is a riot in the city Now there is a riot in my town
I don't wanna live by their rules So much I can't do it's always no Don't tell me it's best for us all Government it's laws it's one big wall They put control on everything that's going on This feels like a modern prison So are you gonna let them have their way and take control of you Or are you gonna take a stand and not give in say FUCK YOU!
Komt deze oorlog ooit nog tot een stop Je zegt je bent bereid te praten Maar niet voor de ander stopt Er vallen bommen en granaten 't is een eindeloos gedicht Na al die jaren oorlog Nog geen einde in zicht Er zit geen beweging in Je gaat over lijken voor je eigen gewin Hoe krijg je mensen aan het praten Hoe krijg je mensen bij elkaar Hoe stop je het eindeloze haten Hoe krijg je armen om mekaar? Hoe stop je armoe, stop je honger Het verschil tussen arm en rijk Zo lang er niemand open staat Voor andermans gelijk Ja gooi die bom dan maar -English- Stuck to your guns (Geen beweging) Will this war ever get to an end You say you're willing to negotiate but not before the other bends Bombs and grenades are falling It's a poem wihtout an end After all those years of war There's still no end in sight You're stuck in this situation You don't care if people die As long as you gain for your own good How do you get people to talk How do you get people togehter How do you stop the endless hate how do you get people around the table How to stop poverty and hunger The differences between the rich and the poor As long as no one is willing To listen to another OK go ahead drop that bomb
Victim 02:13
You say the world is going nowhere You shout the system's got to fall Behave like you're a black sheep in the masses But aren't you a lemming after all? If you really want to make a difference Act up and start thinking for yourself In the end you do just what the masses do So come on, come out of your shell You think you are a victim of the system But you're nothing but a victim of yourself
Oh verdomme Wat is hier allemaal aan de hand? Wat is er gebeurd Met de tolerantie in Nederland? Zie rechts opstaan Marcheer er al maar achteraan Maar ik, oh ik kies niet Voor rood wit blauw met een bruine rand NEE! Ik wil gewoon Shoarma kunnen blijven eten Ik wil gewoon Naar de Chinese supermarkt Ik wil gewoon Naar de Turkse koffieshop Ik wil gewoon geen Rood wit blauw met een bruine rand NEE! Oh verdomme Waar is ons gezond verstand? Godverdomme Haal je kop eens uit het zand, want Hoe kunnen we toestaan Dat we weer naar de jaren '30 teruggaan Maar ik blijf rechtop staan en Marcheer er niet blind achteraan! Worden straks de buitenlanders hier geweerd? Heeft er dan niemand van de geschiedenis geleerd? Zijn wij ook niet ooit et onderdrukte volk geweest Laat je niet paaien Je bent zelf de vijand die je vreest Ik wil gewoon Shoarma kunnen blijven eten Ik wil gewoon Naar de Chinese supermarkt Ik wil gewoon Naar de Turkse koffieshop Ik wil gewoon geen Rood wit blauw met een bruine rand NEE!
They throw bombs on other countries And they fight another race But this world is all we have It's not a toy that you can waste So as long as people kill each other In war or on the chair People will die innocent Because no one can judge fair
I voted for a better future But now it's getting clear If I wanna see things change I've got to wait at least 4 years Now clowns rule our country And it isn't fun for you and me This is not democracy But it's the best soap on tv No talk in terms of solutions It's just a media blitz I never voted for a government That only cares about the rich
New enemy 02:24
Again they found a cause To start a new war It's a no-win situation It's just more bombs and frustration I never could have thought I'd have to sing these words They claim to fight for liberation It's just another dead nation A new enemy - who's gonna fight for you A new enemy - who's gonna die for you A new enemy - who's gonna suffer for you A new enemy - that I can't see
Krijg allemaal een enge ziekte Sterf een gruwelijke dood Aan je stompzinnige gezeik Heb ik een broertje dood Krijg toch allemaal de tering Flikker allemaal maar op Ik heb geen zin in je gezeik Ik heb wel wat anders aan mijn kop Zus vind je maar niks en over zo heb je te klagen Kom dan niet bij mij want aan mij moet je niks vragen Ik heb het helemaal gehad met je gezeur en je gezever Ik ben blij om wat ik ben zoals jij wil ik niet leven
Dropout 01:34
You think the world is a bad place You say you're out of luck But you just make me wonder What made you decide to be a Dropout dropout what you're gonna do about it Dropout dropout who needs you Complaining and denying Your life is a dead end Too afraid to make some changes So it stays like this and you will stay a Dropout dropout what you're gonna do about it Dropout dropout who needs you
They dump their oil in the sea, hail the economy Pollution in the air but they don't care The choice between economy and ecology Is easy for them cos money is their referee
I don't like the feeling of reality Whenever I don't want it it is chasing me One moment you're alive, the next you're a machine So full of energy, it makes me wanna scream I live in different worlds or so it seems One is to survive, the other holds my dreams No matter how I try they just won't mix But i'm gonna get through i'm gonna get my kicks I'll live the life, the life I wanna lead I'll lick my wounds, I will no longer bleed I'll leave my troubles and worries far behind No one can take away this state of mind! Safety in numbers safety in pins This is where the good times begin
