Track Name: Intro
anywhere we want
Track Name: Homophobic Cavebreeders
private flats. full climate control
cooked food from clean dishes
shocking news on their high tech tvs
deviants want equal rights

hypocrites preach nature just to proof their backlash point

borders, chemical food and religion
no problem for them
but two genders should be enough
more might make god cry

make god cry

this cheap rhetoric trick
it won‘t impress us just a bit
but I guess most of them don‘t even know
they fool themeselves
if they love nature that much they might want to fight some real issues
or at least fuck off to breed in a cave


Again and again people talk crap like the family is natural the basic part of human society. This is just a cheap trick to justify degration of of everything that doesn’t fit in this standardized modell of living. No one seems to care that nothing in our life is natural: our apartments, our food, every religion. It’s all made by humans and no one cares. Preaching natural values to us is just cheap Hypocrisy.
Track Name: No Defense
different attackers
always the same victims
different ideals
poorest always kill each other

lowest always die
peacefull always die
poorest always die

the ones who start a war
are never the ones to suffer the most
the victims are not nations or ideas
it’s the people who can‘t afford defence

buy your self defence


It’s been said before but still worth mentioning: The ones who decide and declare wars are and have been never the ones who have to take the consequences. The ones who suffer are the ones who are not included in the decisions and, by the way, also don’t benefit from it. Al long as this won’t change, the state of war won’t change. War is still a profitable business, where the people who benefit from it never take the consequences.
Track Name: Normalcy
The beauty of destruction,
the noble act of spitting on institutions
as long as violence is the fuel in the big machine
it’s a great thing to enlighten a flame

rip normalcy
into tiny beautiful pieces

normalcy means violence
for everyone who won‘t fit in
the norm a tool to preach a double standard
majority wins minorities die

rip normalcy
into tiny beautiful pieces


Our everyday live is full of constructed normalcies . Be it, the assumption that “men” or “women” behave in certain ways, the way we spend our free time, how we have fun, how often and what kinds of sex we have, how we meet our partners, the way we value our relationships, what we eat, which drugs we take and when, what we want to accomplish in our lives, how we act in certain ages, … an endless list
I don’t want to say that it’s bad to find yourself in some of the normalcies. If you like penetrative heteronormative sex, go for it, it is just as ok as hardcore BDSM Sessions with nonbinary partners or whatever turns you on (as long as it’s consensual for sure), if you like to drink your beer after work and visit an annual fair, that’s is just as ok as having a joint for breakfast* and enjoying DIY shows at shitty punk places (or taking no drugs at all of course). I wish, we could all let go with this assumptions about what is a “right” thing to do and instead of that just live up to our own needs, while still accepting, that they’re just my needs and others can be totally different. Let’s have all have a good live that makes us happy!

* we know that getting high in the morning is a privilege, but this is more about why people seem to think that's it's ok to get intoxicated in the evening and problematic in the morning
Track Name: Smallest Wheel In The Machine
The lyrics of this song are about private prisons but also deal with prison rape.


thank you for taking one for the team
even if you‘re propably innocent
and if not we‘re just overreacting
on some rules that you felt free to bent
we both know you‘re not dangerous
but I need to eat too
so I make money locking doors
of the cells where they‘ve put you

capitalist inbreed
profit penitentiary

prisons are humane haha
not as long as I am in charge
no dirty hands for me my friend
there are enough here to help me bent
your free will and your dignity
I‘ll send you on a raping spree
get you beaten everyday
you fucking punk will soon obey

profit profit profit profit profit profit


As if prisons themselves weren’t bad enough, during the last years there has been a tendency to privatize them, which leads to the same neoliberal constrains, that every privatized sector experiences. That is a big problem, because this way the conditions of detention get worse, while at the same time there is more pressure on the guards, which leads to worse treatment of the prisoners. This can be well seen in Christian Parentis Article on institutionalized use of prison violence by guards. These indefensible conditions, get even worse, when prisons are privatized and therefore forced to make profit. Also these prisons need inmates, which leads to people (in the US mainly poor young black males) get locked up für minor delinquents. This is well documented in “Amercias War On Drugs” (search youtube for it)
Track Name: Keepers Of The Fail
oktoberfest, beer glass fight
mass murder, militarism
assiduous working bee
heteronormal abusive family

this is what comes to my mind
when they say german culture is on the line
christianity and third reich

they march up
to protest for all their useless crap
obediency, hierarchy, crosses and flags
and and all that stupid german value shit
keeping the fail instead if rethinking it

fuck you
we want to try something new!

If it’s all just about, human rights, values and equality
why does your shirt say germany and not democracy?


Everyones wants to save german values, but not one of them is able to tell mewhy. Democracy? It had do be bombed in here literally. Writers and intellectuals? I strongly doubt the last meaningful intellectuals in Germany (Adorno, anyone?) would be happy about the racist mobs who refer to “Dichter und Denker”. What’s left is mass murder, Oktoberfest, assiduously going to work, and not opening your mouth. Fuck off Germany, no one needs that crap!
