Oh there’s a love song
Playing on the radio
I listen, it’s made of candies
It’s just hypocrisy

Now there’s a hate song
It’s violent and dark and cool
I listen, it’s made of steroids
And false virility

Now tonight we’re tryin’ to innovate
We’re bored of goin’ along with majority

Alone and unaware
You tried to have your say
No one came to tell you
How to be creative

Here, faithful to your songs
I'm tryin’ to give ‘em life
I’m singing with simple words
Your musical visions.

Now tonight we’re tryin’ to innovate
And oh, I feel we’re one when we start to play
We won’t chase some dream or lose our face
‘Cause our only aim’s the aesthetic faith we create

Tonight we’re sailing through your souls
We’ll let unwise brains breath our thoughts
Behold the wasting of the world!
It’s shattered!
Your humble guts will tremble at
the noise of our loud mourning howls
about the desert in your minds

It's with creativity
we'll tear you away from apathy
I’m sure illiteracy
is draggin’ us in a dead-end street
You fear who walks next to us
and don’t regret your selfishness.
We try with inventiveness
to tear you away from your cynicism.
