Track Name: Unison
The persistence of this world weighs upon our shoulders.
And we have been shaped by time and duty to bear it.

We need to abolish western civilization.
For it alienates us from this once living world.

They call it progress, we call it slavery.
They call it society, we call it captivity.
They call it technology, we call it oppression.
They call it democracy, we call it (fucking) fascism.

Degradation and greed for ten thousand years
tore apart what was once a whole.

Domestication is what awaits us,
if we fail to break free from this culture of make believe

They call it progress, we call it slavery.
They call it society, we call it captivity.
They call it technology, we call it oppression.
They call it democracy, we call it (fucking) fascism.

Unity replaced with separation.
Equality replaced with disparity.
Community turned into isolation.
Freedom turned into incarceration.

We will set life free once again. The struggle continues.
For a free humanity, Mother Nature and anarchy.
We won't stay silent. We will rise up and fight.
In defense of all innocent life. For total liberation.
"We are not in the least afraid of ruins. We are going to inherit the earth; there is not the slightest doubt about that. The bourgeoisie might blast and ruin its own world before it leaves the stage of history. We carry a new world here, in our hearts. That world is growing in this minute.“ - Durruti
Track Name: A Shadow Falls Across the Ravaged Land
Once mighty forests fall. The last old trees cut down.
Countless creatures become homeless.
Plants uprooted. Vanishing beauty.
A balanced system. Forcefully disrupted.
Our brothers and sisters cry out for help, but we will never – ever listen.
Our Mother is being killed but you're too blind to see the blood on your hands.

A swath of destruction is left when the machines depart.
The shelter was turned into a slaughterhouse.
Paradise became lifeless hell. Rainforest was turned into barren land.
The bodies of a thousand mighty trees lie scattered across the ravished soil.

Who gave you the right to destroy within a few weeks, what grew for thousands of years?
Who gave you the fucking right!
Who told you that you are superior to all the other living beings within the multitude of species?
Who?

On this earth, a shadow falls across the ravaged land:
The all-consuming megamachine created by human hand.
This artificial creature will cast its shadow over you.
When the forests fall, humanity falls too.
This all-consuming construct will cast its shadow over you.
When the forests fall, humanity falls too.

Who gave you the right to destroy within a few weeks, what grew for thousands of years?
Who told you that you are superior to all the other living beings in this dying world?
Track Name: Disgust
Bred for one single purpose:
to be exploited for human needs.
Taken away from the mother.
Behold the kidnapped child.
Isolated, caged, fed with the pulverized bones
of its brothers and sisters.

A life of pain and suffering.
Nothing but torture. No freedom.
Only imprisonment and death.
No self-determination.

After some shitty months, it all ends
behind the fetid walls of the slaughterhouse.
One last attempt to flee. A final desperate scream.
A bolt between the eyes. Blood blinding the sight.

Jagged knives cut through flesh, blunt saws splinter bones.
A sentient beeing is turned into a carcass.
The meal is served. A corpse provoking
the appetite of the "pride of creation".
Go ahead and "enjoy" your meal!
Taste the blood on your hands.

There is absolutely no excuse
for the exploitation, the abuse.
The mindless subjugation, the killing, the hate.
The ongoing war against the animals.

You're just a heartless murderer. A king upon a throne
made from the skulls of the innocent.
A liar to yourself. A hypocrite.
Your crimes against the living can never be undone.

“We wont change this world of exploitation by refusing to buy meat products, by not wearing the skin of dead animals. What we need to do is to change the way we think. We need to question our relationship to Nature. We need a social revolution to bring capitalism to its knees, to become a part of the natural world once again. We need to start the war against civilization, to stop the downfall of Gaia. NOW!“
Track Name: The Keys to the Cages
Always think before you consume. You can make a difference.
Have no compliance in the mass murder of millions.
Don't believe your government! Statesmen wont protect the animals.
If we really want to save them, we are on our own.

We wont fight for bigger cages, we will smash them all!
We wont fight for bigger cages, we will smash them all!

We're here to end every form of oppression!
We call for an end to all domination.
Capitalism degrades sentient beings into products.
We call for an end to every form of degradation.

They are tortured in fur farms. Tiny cages are their home.
They do not know the forests, they used to live in.
They can never feel the rain on their ragged fur.
They will never be free until we set them free.

“Do you really believe that politicians will do anything for the animals?
Capitalism is about profit, not compassion.
It abuses animals, humans and the earth.
If you want to change the world, be the liberator yourself.“


The fight goes on until every cage is empty.
Until every laboratory is shut down.
This human centered worldview will be our grave.
Therefore nothing can hold us back.

We will show you what empathy looks like.
We are the army of the animals.
We'll break down the barriers, we'll set them all free.
We'll fight for them until the end. We are the keys to the cages!
We are the keys to the cages!
Track Name: Behold the Curse
We are encircled by skyscraping headstones
in the graveyard of modern urbanity:
A mass grave crowded with grey concrete caskets
we like to call our society.

We can never see the sun, because a skyline of grey twisting towers
swallows all light; colours everything black.
We grew accustomed to live in cities – hostile to life.
Like a morbid kraken they corrupt the surrounding land.

Fields displace forests. Untamed rivers become waterways.
Wilderness vanishes. Agriculture dominates.

Animals are degraded to beasts of burden.
Indigenous communities are wiped out.

We've become thralls of religions and drugs, slaves to the supermarket,
Servants of authorities, always kept on a short leash.
The neverending stream of ragged figures that marches into the factories.
With minds altered by the numbing routine of the 9-5.
We will work until we die from cancer or loneliness.
Alienation devoures fulfillment. Isolation redefined.

“Every civilization is defined by hubris. It is defined by its denial that it lives in the natural world. Therefore every civilization in its founding lies and elevates itself above nature.“

The wires clutching Gaias neck.
The chains holding emancipation back.
The spear in the heart of a free humanity.
The prison of hope. Our great misery.
Behold the curse of industrial society.
Civilization. Our great misery.
Track Name: Collapse
I live in a world of death, (where) I can't find a place for myself.
I was the only one who stayed, watching all hope fade.

So many former friends unlearned what it meant to be alive,
not just to pretend to live while they barely exist.

There is no right life in the wrong one.
I never wanted to live their numbing life gone wrong:

They waste their time in pointless jobs.
They get addicted, they drink a lot.
They beat and hurt the ones they love.
They stumble and give up when things get tough.

They'll die alone, enslaved by drugs
(with) tears in their eyes; they pray to God.
They lose all trials, they are outlawed.
They become the ghost, walking abroad.


We all are casualties.
Numb, hurt and blind.
With nothing to leave behind.
Crewshouts:
We lost our battles.
But we go on.
Already dead when we were born.


This crisis ends
when everything's collapsing.
When tiny daisies
break through the cracked blacktop.
When i become the flower
you walk by and spit on.

At least i will be blooming
for some shitty weeks in june.
What will you do
with the time given to you?
What will you do
with the time given to you?
