"Nemesis" as written by Peter Pangerl, Andreas Janetschko, Bushido,, Danny Bokelmann, Saad El Haddad, Biljana Vukolic and Eko Fresh....
Everybody wants to live in a lie
But why should we delude ourselves?
It's not as if we can't see something's wrong
Where's the duty to what's right?
Intentions end with empty words
And chaos replaces order

Those who shout loudest impose their will
Upholding laws that serve a few
Declaring peace while the sirens sing
In the name of progress,
In the name of madness
Drum beats faster
Crowd shouts louder
And chaos replaces order

I want justice for a voice that can't be heard
Vindication for every suffering and hurt
Let retribution hold dominion over earth
Because judgement day's not coming Judgement day's not coming
Soon enough

Because judgement day's not coming
Because judgement day's not coming
Because judgement day's not coming
Because judgement day's not coming
Soon enough

I want justice for a voice that can't be heard
Vindication for every suffering and hurt
Let retribution hold dominion over earth
Because judgement day's not coming Judgement day's not coming

I want justice for a voice that can't be heard
Vindication for every suffering and hurt
Let retribution hold dominion over earth
Because judgement day's not coming Judgement day's not coming
Soon enough

Soon enough

    General CommentQuite straight forward. Kinda the misanthropic feeling for me in the way I think about misanthropy (ok, I am getting preety bad sometimes that I start hating people and hope something wipes as all ;P). It's about some kind of a wicked justice that comes abroad, like my misanthropic feelings at time, maybe some revenge from nature or space (but it's not mentioned here), not justice from people who can't seem to bring it up, but from an outer source. A Nemesis, a divine retribution, a justice that doesn't come from humans but from the outside, because it doesn't seem to come. Soon enough..

    General CommentI don't think this is against people in general. More against the mindset of today. Speaking out as a voice of the minority that is stepped over by the majority. The focus of the song sees that things are not as they should be, yet the masses keep going as though nothing is wrong.
    And the focus wants this to change.

    General CommentThe people are apathetic. Even when we protest, we protest like it's a job. "Hey, it's 5 o clock, lets go to starbucks inside the walmart".

    The song is about pushing everything aside. We shouldn't stand for injustice, but every single one of us is guilty of it. We watch on the news as Africans get murdered, or they're starving to death, while we sit there eating McDonalds in front of the bigscreen tv.

    I love lifes luxuries as much as the next man, and I dont think this song is saying that they're evil...but when you let them control your life and become apathetic to the evils of the world, then they themselves become the monster.

    General CommentThis song is about the disrespect of the rights of minorities, the powerful who only see their self-interests... in other words the strong taking advantage of the weak.

    General Commentanyone consider the possibility of the allusion to the goddess Nemesis??

    but yeah,I understand it as how the majority try to impose their will on the minorities, and that some outside force will come to set things right in the end.
