Track Name: Dance the Bomb
Dance the Bomb

Our culture is a simple killing culture
And our history a history of war

So we must dance the bomb
Bounce the bomb
Drop the bomb on someone elses head

We have to dance the bomb
Bounce the bomb
Drop the bomb 'till everyone is dead

These are the signs
The signs of justice
The signs of freedom
The signs of peace
Until we reach that thing called "Endsieg"
We will continue this...


1993 Mario Strack
Track Name: Civilization
Civilization

Silence is golden, said that man to me
The war is over, said that man to me

But I don't belive him
I look around and I see
No I don't belive him
I simply disagree, with him

This world has canyons filled with blood
And all these fingers point at you
This world has canyons filled with tears
And now these eyes they stare at me

Talking is golden, said that man to me
The hate is over, said that man to me

But I don't belive him...

This world has deserts made of hearts
And all these rocks they fall on you
This world has deserts made of greed
And now these boots walk over me

Civilization...

Thinking is golden, said that man to me
The fear is over, said that man to me

And now I belive him
I close my eyes and I see
Oh yes I belive him
I simply just agree with him

This world has mountains build of care
And now these hands are touching you
This world has mountains build of love
And now these lips are kissing me


1994 Mario Strack
Track Name: Airplanes
Airplanes

From town to town
From land to land
They want to move
They have to go...

From continent
To continent
They want to move
They have to go
And so they fly with airplanes...


1994 Mario Strack
Track Name: The Dance
The Dance

It is the dance
That makes us all so happy
It is the dance
That gives us all the fun
It is the dance
That makes our life so pleasent
It is the dance
To each and every one

Because the rhythm of the primitive
Don't offers intellectual approache
It only takes your body and your soul
So let your heartbeat be the coach

And (cause) it's the dance
Girl it is the dance
What we got is the dance...


1995 Mario Strack
Track Name: Get the Groove
Get the Groove

I crossed the oceans
Full of boredom
For a little while
And I received what I deserved

I read the messages
But they where changeing
Just in style
The lines where straight the news where curved

And than I step into this place
I hear some drums I hear some bass
And then I get into the Groove...


1996 Mario Strack
Track Name: My Woman
My Woman

My woman
She's nice as I can tell
My woman
She leads me out of hell
She reads the map so well

She's coming a long way
But always the strong way
And where to go she always knows
She's moving the thight way
But always the right way
And where to go she really knows

Way home...
Straight way home


1997 Mario Strack
Track Name: Aesthetics
Aesthetics

Aesthetics add some meaning to impression
They'r stored in a subconsciousness like you and I
me I try to stick them into artworks
and you may wonder why...

Aesthetics illustrate the life of humans
they seek for independence just like you and I
me I try...

If you see blue it is not necessarily blue skys
If you see red, it is not always blood
Sometimes it's electronic dye on active screens
And you may find out what it means
It's up to you, aestheticize your mind...

Aesthetics transform soldiers into heroes
They think they get there orders just like you and I
but me I try...


1998 Mario Strack
Track Name: Society
Society

Society, is not for me
They say it is a must
You got to be a part of this
But I do not agree with this society

Conspiracy, is not for me
They say it is a must
You got to be a part of this
But I do not agree with this conspiracy

Aint got no four leaf glover
No clever strategie
The rain is pouring down
The only one you can trust in is me

'Cause when the spirit comes
All changes to dust
And all the clouds disappear
Not even heroes stay, they'r not ment to last
It's only lovers that are
Allowed to make there way back home

Community, is not for me
They say it is a must
You got to be a part of this
But I do not agree with this community


1999 Mario Strack
Track Name: We're In
We're In

We are the soldiers of the market
Wearing businessuniform
Raise the profit is our target
Selling weappons, drugs and porn

We jet from Frankfurt up to Wallstreet
We stick in each and every deal
Don't you ask for responsibility
There's nothing to reveal

But at the weekend we're at home
We kiss our kids goodnight
We take our pretty wifes and enter pleasuredome
We feel so high because we earn it
Until we burn it...

We are the keepers of the nature
We're pricing animals and trees
If you don't want to pay for your live
Leave this planet, if you please

But at the weekend...

We are the cracks of inovation
Lead you to virtuality
We sell you hazy explanations
And you turn to pay the fee

But at the weekend...

We were the soldiers of the market
Still wear that same old uniform
But now it seems like we have
Sold ourselves...
