The car is on fire and there's no one at the wheel And no one tries to put on the brakes at all We're trapped in the belly of this sick machine The radiator smoking, there's no air to breathe And no one tries to put on the brakes at all One by one like stars from the sky they fell And everyone turned their backs, wondering to themselves I'm on a strange journey I didn't choose to take Where I'm going I don't want to think But no one tries to put on the brakes at all Your final breath will be an eastern wind To blow through the valley of death that we've carved in this land We're accomplices all It's all beyond our control We're so innocent when the hammer falls And nobody tries Nobody tries No one even fucking tries! Accelerating through industrial haze Past the death camps and the marketplace we've lost our way I hope we burn up in the wreckage Rather than live another day In vain in a world without frontiers We're served our just desserts: Just deserts, in burning thirst And no one tries to put out the flames at all.

    the mix of clean vocals and filthy screams give me the creeps. in a positive way that is. it's a nice break in the heavy Catharsis-repertoire. But it's just as harsh and non-conformistic like the rest of their songs
