all Poltergeist lyrics



We Are The People
Opression's ruling our land
The years have past so fast
Many tried to change something
Impossible in the past

But now that there are beter days
And we have changed a lot
We all should stand together now
And tell them what we want

A new horizon's there
Let us take the chance
It's growing everywhere
And life gets a sense

Freedom should kiss our land
We ought to be free but we're not
They try to put us down
We have to change a lot

We
We are
The People
It's our land and our life

We
We are
The People
You cannot turn you can't survive

Now
It's time to resign
We have to do it now
The change of the government
It's the only solution

You
You can't ignore us
Open your eyes and see
You can't go on like this anymore

You know
Your system has failed
There's no need to try again
You've lost our confidence
Long ago, it's too late

Now it's time for you to go
This was not our way
We are the ones you were working
So listen what we say

We want to live in freedom now
No terror and no fear
We almost did it, no rest now
The victory's so near

(Dedicated to the people in East-Germany,
may they do the best out of their new freedom...)back to top
Behind My Mask
Can't you see
My eyes are burning
They're fire and pain
And they show me the world so unreal

Can't you see
My mind is running
I'm almost insane
Nothing makes sense to me

Can't you hear
My mind is crying
Crying for help
Why doesn't nobody hear me

I feel
So alone now
They're watching my face
But a mask is all what they see

Chorus:
Behind my mask
You can see all my fears
Behind my mask
You can see all my tears
Behind my mask
You can see my real face
Behind my mask
You can see my disgrace

Don't talk to me
I can't understand all your words
Don't bother me
Just leave me under my curse

Fly with me
I'm heading to my inner skies
Just wait and see
I'm not at home, look in my eyes

Can't you see
My eyes are burning
They're fire and pain
And they show me the world so unreal

Can't you see
My mind is running
I'm almost insane
Nothing makes sense to me

Chorus

Too much stuff
Too much for me
Everything turns upside down

I'm feeling bad
So sick and tired
Everything's dancing around

Don't trust my face
My starry eyes
I can't control my inner self

Is this the end
Or just a rest
I'm under the drug's evil spellback to top
Act Of Violence
In the streets, ther's your life
The only place you rule
Here you're a king
No one else can be

You know the rules of this game
And you know it is all true
he strong survives
And the weak will die

There's no one else harder than you
There's none as cruel as you
The harder you get
The higher you get

Only violence rules the street
There's no place here for love
Don't trust your friends
It will be your end

You can hide all your feelings
But you never will stay the same
You may think this is life
But someday you will see who's to blame

Committing a new act of violence

Now again
You played your game
A few more on your list
How many more
Will have to die

Will it stop now
Is it enough
Or do you need some more
More begging for mercy, more cries of pain

You can hide all your feelings
But you never will stay the same
You may think this is life
But someday you will see who's to blame

Commiting a new act of violence

The day has come for you
To feel what is pain
They beat you up my friend
again and again

You were so stupid
When you thought this is cool
Now you're the victim, man
So now who's the fool?

Now you pay
For the things which you've done
Of course this is not fair
Four against one

But you know
All the rules in the street
Only the strong survives
This time it's me

(Why you're crying, man?
Does it hurt so bad?
You're dying, man
Oh, it's so sad)

You can hide all your feelings
But you never will stay the same
You may think this is life
But someday you will see who's to blame

Committing a new act of violenceback to top
Grey
You ask your dad
Why you have to stay at home
Everyday the same old staffy room

He tells you the same old story
If you go out you'll be sick tonight
Then he starts to talk about it
The days when everything was allright

The sky was blue and bright
Not dark and grey
The air was clear
And you could go out to play
There were green hills and flowers
No buildings and no toxic power
The sea was full of life
No plastic bags and no pools of oil

Spoken verse:
Mankind destroyin' it's home
The greed has taken the world by storm
Without any consideration
It teaches man to kill the planet
Which he is living on
Soon there will be no more chance
For him
And he has to lie in his
Self digged grave...

You ask yourself
Who is responsible
Who had the right
To steal your life

You are not guilty
When you were born it was all too late
Look out of your window
And ask this big grey sky about your fateback to top
Delusion
Realize
They'll come upon us all
If we want change
Maybe they are too strong

If you wait
Our chance is getting small
Then they are right
And suddenly you're wrong

The aim is clear
Absolute power
No dissenters
They raise the fear
Protecting themselves with fascist
Ideas

Don't you believe
Their power's growing up
Too many people
Voting for their aimes

Listen to me
If they're coming into power
They'll change their faces
And you're the first to go
A big delusion
For all who believed in them
No one could know
Everybody would say

No one can help
Now it's too late
If we had learned from the past
They will pray

Remember the past now
What happened there
The same situation
Fascists everywhere

Patriotism
Is what they did pray
Anything that is different
Destroying your fatherland

A big delusion
For all who believed in themback to top
Drilled To Kill
You don't know
The thing which you're fighting for
But you know how to kill

Since your dad
Has sold you to them, your life's changed
You have to do what they say

If you don't obey
They'll beat you up

Listen what they say
And fear the power they've got

All your life
You will be a warrior of peace or war
You don't know

Since your dad
Has sold you to them, you've got a gun
And something to eat

Chorus:
No more mercy
You're drilled to kill and to die

Oh boy - can't you see
You're drilled to kill for their lies

Why do you feel so alone now
You see the enemies face

You have to fight, but you know how
Shoot him there's no time to waste

This was your seventh victim
Looks so funny when they fall

Nobody said it's bad thing
You have shot'em and that's it all

Repeat chorus
Repeat 1st verse

You've got no choice
Like other boys
You're just an instrument
One of their toys

Sometimes you remember
This time long ago
You remember your father
But it's hurting you soback to top
Make Your Choice
Did you ever ask
What this all means

Did you ever sk
Why this all seems so meaningless

Will you ever
Know the truth
Will you always
Take the rough with the smooth

Nobody ever can tell you more
Than you know from thinking about it

Nobody ever can sell the truth
'coz nobody has the answers

In this world we live in
It's better you don't think about

But when you're alone
Who will help you to take your doubts

If there's any god
Why he leaves you alone

Is he def or blind
Or why does he hurt you so

You don't even have a friend
You want nothing more
Than bring these thoughts to an end

The whole life is so meaningless
You've got two things to choose

The first one would be suicide
But you don't know what you loose
The other thing's forget it all
But it's easier said than done
So make your choice and hope you're right
You know this is no fun

MAKE YOUR CHOICE
MAKE YOUR CHOICE
MAKE YOUR CHOICE
MAKE YOUR CHOICE

You don't know what you have to do
You didn't decide yet
Youll go insane if you try to forget
There's no place for you to hide
'Coz there will be no one with you
There's nobody here to help
So if you have the will to live
Go on and heal yourself

MAKE YOUR CHOICE

Chato's Land
They hunt him through the prairie
For what he's done
They don't want to ley him flee

They call him a bastard
For what he's done
He shot the sheriff down
now he's dead

Twelve against one
They're on his trace
They think he's got no chance

They don't know
This is his land
He waits until his time will come

They killed his son
And destroyed his family
They raped his wife
And enjoyed the pain he feels

Too late now
Never changing his aim
REVENGE

The hunt goes on and on
They're sure they'll win
There's no doubt about

They have to kill this bastard
This is the law
For sure they won't give up
until he's dead

Who will win
This evil game
Do they know
They're in Chato's land

In this desert
They will go insane
Will they die
Here in Chato's land

They think they'll get him
But who gets who
They've got no chance
Here in Chato's land

He will get them
Just one by one
They will die
Here in Chato's land

He won't give up
Until it's done
He's looking for his revenge

There's just one left
Last one to die
He wants to bring it to
An end

They killed his son
And destroyed his family
They raped his wife
And enjoyed the pain he feels

Too late now
Never changing his aim

Still Alive
You promised me
The whole world
In fact you're thinking
I'm a jerk

You tried to fool me
Like all the others
You brought me nothing
But pain and sorrows

Wait Till I come into my own
I let you feel all my
Hate
So watch out and stay away
You better believe me

You fooled me once
You fooled me twice
I was insane
'coz I took your advice

I lost my money
I lost my job
So take care honey
'coz I'm not your friend anymore

I am screaming When I think about you
I can't believe it
That I was such a fool

But now it's over
You won't hurt me again
I was so wrong
When I trusted every friend

I'm still alive
It's good to live without your lies
I'm still alive
So you can kiss my ass good bye

You've been my friend
You told me so
But this is really
Long ago

Why did you turn
Your back on me
You thought I'm stupid
O would not see it

Wait
Till I come into my own
I let you feel all my
Hate
So watch out and stay away
You better believe me

Now it's enough
You had your joy
It's my turn now
And I'm not coy

I show you how
Revenge can taste
I better start nowback to top
Driftin' Away
Is this the way I'm leaving
This cruel awful world

I feel how death is creeping
Inside every nerve

I can feel my mind is floating
My body lies there
I'm heading for the light
And I'm driftin' away

I'm driftin' away
Oh driftin' away

All the pain is getting smaller
The higher I get
I can hear the voices calling
There's nothing I regret

I'm driftin' away
Oh I'm driftin' awayback to top
