"Rubicon" as written by and Tim Skold Sascha Konietzko....
Cross the rubicon
Burn the fire sign
Only victory is bliss
Bend a broken rule
Break the symmetry
Put all progress into remiss

Rinse out the ugly and purge every demon
A small step for progress a leap for the mind
The smoke never settles where everything is even

A poke in the eye the equation is nil

Violence for inner-peace
Bombing for therapy
Terror is everything you need

Cross the dotted line
Fake your destiny
Give a finger take a hand
Use the enmy
Turn the outside in
Tell the prophet it's the end

Money is power and power is corruption
There is nothing to gain from the absolute truth
Natural selection is based on deception
The ignorant elder empowers the youth...

    General CommentIt's about terrorism. It's about terrorism, its hypocrisy, its stupidity, and how it is a generational chain, passed on from the ignorant elder to the powerless youth.

    The name Rubicon is significant in that once a young terrorist is indoctrinated, there is no return, and there is no helping it - the rubicon has been crossed.

    General CommentSPK reference:
    KMFDM "violence for inner peace, bombing for therapy"
    SPK "Kill, Kill, Kill for inner peace/ Bomb, Bomb, Bomb for mental health/ Therapy through violence!

    SPK was both a radical left wing group in Germany with a fascinating approach to mental health, and a band on the Industrial Records label.
