Track Name: The Big Freeze, The Big Rip, The Big Crunch
Let’s wait for the Big Rip in silence
There’s no goal or faith to stop the end. It’s silence.

The Big Freeze will come whispering gently
There’s hope but not for us*, just silence.

*quote attributed to Franz Kafka
Track Name: The Last Words From The Last Man On Earth
Please me , I’m your answer
Could you please stop this nonsense? I’m just trying to believe in something
Feel me, I’m the only one
Could you please make lights even brighter? Burn my eyes with strobes and flashes
You don’t need eyes while you’re sleeping
Could you please erase my hard disK? I just need to rest from who I am
There’s a way to make it hurt
Could you please stop this nonsense, I’m just trying to believe in something
There’s a way to make it hurt
Could you please erase my hard disk, I just need to rest from who I am
There’s a way to make it hurt

Now I know that you know how to make me greater than the others
There’s a way to make you hurt
Now I want you to give me power
There’s a way to make it

There´s a way to make it hurt
Now I know
Track Name: The Future Is Here
The future is here
I don’t belong
I don’t believe
In this new world

Where are the flying cars they promised?
Yeah, it’ coming
Like a movie
Yeah it’s coming
Before sundown
Yes, it’s coming,
it’s a movie
Yeah it’s coming

The future is here
I don’t belong
I don’t believe
In this new world

Where are the flying cars they promised?
Yeah, it’ coming
Like a movie
Yeah it’s coming
Before sundown
Yes, it’s coming,
It’s a movie
Yeah it’s coming

The future is here
I don’t belong
I don’t believe
In this new world
Track Name: I Don't Know Where To Go
Any rustle
Will disrupt this dream
Anything will turn sundown
Into darkness
It’s time

Any hustle
Like a beating
Have you heard your inside downs?
Like a string?
It’s time

And i don’t know where to go
And i don’t know what to do
And i don’t know where to go
I don’t know what to do

My secrets are gone
I only see suffering
Here everything’s coming back, so…

Here, patch your rags
Find your will
Rich soil
Settle down
It’s time

But i dont know what to do
I dont know where to go
And i dont know what to do
I dont know where to go
And i dont know what to do
I dont know where to go
And i dont know what to do
Track Name: Beliefs In Fire
Set on fire
Every creature
Like your old gods
Left stories
Set in flames
Your beliefs
Every angel
Broke a trumpet to avoid the fire

Like burning signs on pages
Words have fallen to pieces
A secret sound is glittering
It’s lying to you

The preacher’s away
“I’m your new master “. he said
“They lied to everyone”

New murks, trees and dawns
All bodies will transform into waters
And sinners
Will turn to sound

I’s a lie
They lied
They are lying
They will lie
It’s a lie

Burn papers
Buy data
Invoke thunders
To keep safe yout very own fictions

Your Word is a lie
Your faith is a lie
Your comfort is a lie
Your life is a lie
Your love is a lie
Your kindness is a lie
Your ease is a lie
Your death is a lie
Track Name: Imaginary Carnyx Hymn
I can hear the sound of war
With its trumpets and its big drums
It is banging my head
Every muscle is ready for the frey

Is this roar only in my mind?
Is it like thunder without clouds?
There’s no King to kill
I’m the only enemy to fight

I can feel my inner water boiling
That steamy voice whispering
“Take your helmet, take your spear
This battle’s at hand, don’t you hear?”

Is this undertone only in my mind?
Either way I’ll lose if I try
There’s no throne to siege
There’s no enemy to fight

This pain is all we’ve got
This pain is all we’ve got
This pain is all we’ve got
This pain is all we’ve got
This pain is all I’ve got
Track Name: We'll Be Light
We won’t die
We’ll be light
We were fear
Now it’s gone

This is the end, again
But we won’t die
Death is not enough
To kill all this light/life
