I don't know
Where this world is going
For all this life is showing
Breaks through
The paper chains that hold you
They hold me
You know I try and stay sober
But the feeling it's over
Life in this coma
It's hard to stay sober
In this life
Alone the struggle seems wholly worthless
So find
Your friend
In defiance show we are no longer helpless

You made me forget myself
Until the moment I found I was something else
My heart is good
Believe me I could
Watch these heads
Go blow
I am alive I can barely feel fear
And I won't let go
Of this life I'm going to free myself
I don't want to know what your baby say
I'll pull the trigger come judgement day
And I don't hear what your baby say
I'll bust this head for a funny game

I have no apology for these words
And understand that I can't escape
I have no more love for this world
If you hear me then let's break away
So people come on, people come on
The world that held you now has gone
Together the wolves will lay together alone the wolves will play

To the powers of old
To the powers that be
You have fucked up this world but you won't fuck with me

In a state of enlightened anarchy each person will become his own ruler, they will conduct themselves in such a way that the behaviour will not hamper the well being of their neighbours. In an ideal state there will be no political institutions and therefore no political power.

    TranslationNo I don't know
    Where this world is going
    For all this life is showing
    Breaks through
    The paper chains that hold you
    They hold me

    You know I try and stay sober
    But the feeling it's over
    A life in this coma
    It's hard to stay sober
    In this life

    Alone the struggle seems wholly worthless
    So find
    Your friend
    Dream the finest - show them we're not helpless

    (y)
    You made me forgive myself
    'Til the moment I found I was something else
    My heart is good
    Believe me I could
    Watch these heads go blow (/below?)

    I promised you're alive
    I can barely feel
    I won't let go
    Of this life
    I'm gonna feel myself

    No I don't want your baby to say
    I pull the trigger come judgement day
    And you're only what you say
    I'll bust this head for a funny game
    (/v)

    I'll make an apology for these words
    And understand that I can't escape
    I have no more love for this world
    If you hear me then let's break away

    So people come on, people come on
    The world that held you now has gone
    Together the wolves will lay
    Together alone the wolves will play

    (y)...(/y)

    So give me life,
    Na ah , a life I can barely feel
    Give me life
    Nah ah, a life I can be myself

    (???)

    And I said,

    To the powers of old
    To the powers that be
    You have fucked up this world but you won't fuck with me

    (x7)
