Feminism 02:27
I wonder why, you think feminism is negative? It doesn’t condemn men as rapists or sexually assaulted. Nor does it grade, all women are oppressed and victims! Unfortunately, we still live in a patriarchal society. I can’t believe, I cannot see, I can’t believe, That there is still no equality! For centuries, women have struggled against oppression, Some battles have been won – like right to vote and education Why is it still, so difficult to accept equal rights? Why still prevails, black-and-white thinking? I can’t believe, I cannot see, I can’t believe, That there is still no equality! I can’t believe, I cannot see Some neither feel, as man nor as a woman. Why is it a taboo to be born in the wrong body? Why do you have to define yourself as a man or a woman? The term “divers” mostly laughed at and ridiculed. I can’t believe, I cannot breathe, I can’t believe, I cannot feel, I cannot be! [words: Verena]

How can you sleep? People are dying in a war People are fighting for their lives and you complain Too many people, foreign in your town Too many refugees let in your town and stayed How can you sleep that well tonight? How can you sleep that well when others try to fight? Boats were restricted from the sea, Boats were restricted, to save all the refugees How can you sleep that well tonight? How can you sleep that night when others try to fight? Boats veered not to take the drowning on board Veered not to hear the cries for help without sorrow How can you sleep that well tonight? How can you sleep that well when others try to fight? How can you whinge about your life? How can you whinge about it when others try to survive? [words: Verena]

Nazi Migration Nazi migration To Saxony You try to settle Ethnic ideology Gather together To preserve your race Rural regions Your desired place We will never stop to fight you, Don’t believe your ideology will persist. Even so in central Saxony, People are waking up and will resist. Form to fight, Will resist, Strike it down, Strike it down and kill! Hatred against migrants, But you’re one yourself. Committed citizens, You pretend to be. Among the population, You spread your creed. Corona protests, Are your mouthpiece! We will always fight racism, Ethnic ideology and right wing extremism. You will never find a place where Your ideology will spread unaware! Form to fight, Will resist, Strike it down, Strike it down and kill! [words: Verena]

Wake up early Wake up early Way too early The sun kisses my forehead Have a piss Have a coffee Wonder if I'm alive or dead Anyway I Leave my dwelling Shuffle the streets with grace Eager people Busy people Happy in their rat race Carpe diem That's what say I don't care I don't wanna Seize the day I have a decent job I can't complain I have a cozy home I have lost my love I found another one I am ready to spawn [words: HolBeu]

You’ve seen it all You say you’ve seen it all And that’s the way it is You say it’s the truth I call it prejudice! You say you’ve heard it all And things are like that You’ve seen the whole world And it’s really flat The world is so flat The world is so flat The world is so flat It is really flat You’ve said you know it all And there’s no doubt about You have your definite view And that’s all that counts Women behind the stove Right where they belong That is your attitude You call it equity! The world is so flat The world is so flat The world is so flat It is really flat Foreigners take our jobs Unemployed are parasites That’s the way you think I call it black and white! You stupid little man You live in your own small world, Your outlook‘s parochial When do you at least get real? [words: Verena, HolBeu]

Leave 02:59
Leave I first met you on the train Hoped to see you once again And I never thought you would Would ask me to be your wife To live with you my whole life Be addicted to your love You’re the man and I’m your wife For now and forever in my life You will never let me go But I’ll leave you today I will leave you today I will leave you, my friend At first everything was good But if you were in some bad mood Your hand slipped very easily Hoped it’s getting better, well My whole life turned out to hell Beatings were the order of the day I will leave you today I will leave you today I will leave you, my friend I will leave you I will leave you I will leave you now and then I will leave you When I can I will leave you Now and then You can’t touch me Anymore I will leave you And it’s over I will leave you In the end [words: Verena]

Pearl Index Baby Fifteen minutes of true love To spawn a soul that‘s long enough Nine months of peace in mother‘s womb Day of birth - first date on your tomb Pearl Index Baby Born to fail and fall Pearl Index Baby Raised to fail and fall Born into a pedigree of loss Unheralded, unwanted, and alone Sweet childhood of mine Home, sweet broken home to find Pearl Index Baby Born to fail and fall Pearl Index Baby Raised to fail and fall Pushed into a bloody mess of pain It will be hard for you to gain [words: HolBeu, Verena]

Orwell’s Big Brothers Social media – daily companions Ignore the fact that this is not free of charge Data protection will be ignored Your personal data is the payment and you know They gonna know where you came from and where you go They will control you and whatever you will do Once online – always online Orwell’s Big Brother now long overhauled By a variety of many small and big brothers collecting data of you and you know They gonna know where you came from and where you go, They will control you and whatever you will do Take you smartphone always with you and they know They always listen and they want you to show Motion profile Voice recording NSA – data surveillance Digital monitoring and scoring system in China Classification into good and evil By a social assessment and you don’t have a choice What a totalitarian regime is forcibly imposed On the population in Orwell's vision of a bleak future, The digital natives do it voluntarily. I can’t believe that shit is happening to be I can’t believe I cannot see [words: Verena]

Narcissist 02:53
Narcissist You little Narcissist Dancing on our heads Exaggerated ego fixation You are so easy and I don’t know what to say Your world is breaking down and you would feel the way Your world is breaking down Touch you on the ground You never thought it could You never thought it would Your world is breaking down It’s breaking down, you know Your little world is down The slightest criticism You rate as devastating The tiniest praise as proof of your genius You tend to manipulate and belittle others In order to enhance and feel better about yourself Your world is breaking down Touch you on the ground You never thought it would You never thought it could Your world is breaking down It’s breaking down, you know Notorious liar Addicted to praise and recognition Entangled in your fabric of lies Master of blaming others for a conflict Your world is breaking down Your self-confidence is destroyed [words: Verena]

Quit 01:57
Quit Sometimes I give thought to quit No measuring up expectations Just quit and leave the shit behind No decisions anymore to take No frustrations anymore to bear Just stop and leave your life behind Reaching what you can’t see You’ll never feel this way You’ll never find a way to me Never said – What you feel Never got – What you did Never felt - What you did to me I switch on the TV Ill people wherever I see Narcism, violence, greed and lies Then I have to ask myself Hey man, what’s wrong with me Am I the only one who see There’s something really wrong There’s something really fake There’s something really going wrong Never said – What you feel Never got – What you did Never felt - What you did to me [words: Verena]

Holiday of Democracy Took advantage of the coup You grabbed for absolute power Partially suspended human rights, rule by decree Human rights ignored, civil liberties restricted, death penalty reinstructed Tell me are you, tell me are you really alright Tell me are you, tell me are you really almighty „Say a word and we will die.“ Mama told him not to do that way Tell them lies and they will stay that day That’s okay cause you will tell them lies Never trust him he will be your demise With merciful severity you react to the revolt, Thousands were arrested, teachers and judges muzzled Civil servants fired or forced to resign, Academics cooped in the country. Tell me are you, tell me are you really alright Tell me are you really almighty „Say a word and we will kill.“ Mama told him not to do that way Tell them lies and they will stay that day That’s okay cause you will tell them lies Never trust him he will be your demise [words: Verena]
