about

„DEADWEIGHTS refers to unloved peculiarities that we are subconsciously aware of but are often not so easily abandoned“, vocalist Robert Sierl comments. „The album orbits around the topic of self development as a human being, whilst simultaneously criticizing abuses and misconduct caused by modern society that are increasingly rooted in the personalities of each individual.“

Track Name: Noise
It's like an itch you cannot scratch.
The noise of modern life it's in our heads.
And no matter how hard we try.
We'll carry it around until the day we die
Track Name: Crooked Tongue
Your crooked tongue distorts the truth just as you please.
How can you look me in the eyes while spitting out such poiso
nous lies?

Lie to me again. Lie!
You speak of trust and respect, while spreading nothing but lies.
When did you lose your modesty? You threw it away! Threw i
t away! Congratulations! You're one
of the few that I really fucking hate.

Please do the world a favour:
Drown your body in the ocean of your lies!
I hope that you will choke!
Track Name: Ambiself
Cross me out.
Count me in.
In the end it doesn't make a difference at all.

I am everything and nothing.
Beloved and hated.
I am creator and destroyer.
The noise, the silence that's driving you insane.

My innocence creates guilt and guilty hearts are starting to
decay.
I watch them wither and blossom anew.

A world so unstable, the change so constant.
It's meaningless while means the world to me.
And things go on.
And things go on and on and on.

This world's still moving in slow motion, but still too fast for me. Everything is flowing so
perfectly.

Truth is for the ignorant, liars set us free.
It's time for blank pages again.
Please erase everything!
I decide. I regret. I move on.
Track Name: Crossbearer
I am the serpent that hangs from the tree.
Come bite the apple so truth reveals to thee.
Let the truth be revealed!

You're starving from lust and you`ll die from gluttony.
Your heart is filled with greed and envy.
'Cause wrath and pride will never beat the sloth.
That is the cross you have to bear!

Your words are snake bites, poisoning the innocent.
Your words are like fangs in the flesh of those deceived.
Set yourself free from all believes!
Put an end to morality.
Put it to an end!

You're starving from lust and you`ll die from gluttony.
Your heart is filled with greed and envy.
'Cause wrath and pride will never beat the sloth.
That is the cross you have to bear!

Bring the world to its end!
Give birth to sin.
Bring the world to its end!
Give birth to humanity.
Track Name: Self-Adjusting
It's deep inside you, it's always been there.
You can't stop it!
It will take over you!

A big old door locking out all hope.
The key long lost in forgotten years.
Black fog blocking your mind.
There's water filling your lungs and fire burning your bones.
Stay alive!

Dig deeper and find your way back to the light.
Let the rain fall as ash, burn away the past.
Track Name: Homeostasis
Excuse me for daydreaming.
I always have my head up in the clouds.
I don't fit your standards!
I'm just so miserable with being someone else.

Cut! Cut! Cut!
Cut! Cut! Cut!
Cut! Cut! Cut me out!
Simply cut me out!

You say I'll never make it.
The saddest thing about this is I am starting to believe you.
I don't want to pay for all the mistakes you have made.
(Cut! Cut! Cut! Cut! Cut! Cut! Cut them out)
Hands get up, hands get down, but I will never praise!
(Cut! Cut! Cut! Cut! Cut! Cut! Cut it out!)
You say I'm lost and I will never find what I'm looking for
?!
(Cut! Cut! Cut! Cut! Cut! Cut! Cut! Cut! Cut me out!)

Let me tell you what I think:
I think that you don't deserve to live!
Until you accept that there are differences.

You say I'll never make it.
The saddest thing about this is that I am starting to believe you.
You've said I'd never make it.
The best thing about that was that I've started to fight back.

I've started to fight back.
I've started to fight!
Track Name: Verminious
You are the worst disease that ever plagued this earth.
Sitting there on your throne made out of dirt.
You've built your empire on the backs of the weak.
Destroyed everything they ever believed in.

You are the king of all rats, wearing a bloodstained crown.
It's time to smoke you out!

I'll be the first one watching as you`re biting your own tail.
Ill be watching you as you devour yourself.
You're so insatiable. Your greed is so unique. It's incomparable!
But soon your reign will come to an end.
And we will finally be free men again.

The lies you`ve bound us with are starting to decay.
Your world is coming down.
Your throne is crumbling.

You were the king of all rats, you wore a bloodstained crown.
But at last the people smoked you out!
Welcome back to the dirt! The cradle you came from!
Track Name: Smooth Talkers
Hysteria, the latest fashion!
Dress yourself in panic, of what the news are telling you.

Forget about it the next day.
Start it over again!
Over and over and over again.

We run in circles, afraid but ignorant at the same time.
Out of sight. Out of mind. That's how we roll.
We're losing sight of importance by stripping every problem down.

This ship is clearly sinking but no one cares anymore!
You're complaining but doing nothing.
Sitting there in front of your tv.

Frustrated. Sedated. We've become numb.
Frustrated. Sedated. And we dont even give a fuck at all.
Frustrated. Sedated. And we don't even give a fuck at all!
But I'm tired of watching people calm their minds with hypocrism.

One good thing to countervail a thousand mistakes.
We're losing sight of importance by stripping every problem
down.
This ship is clearly sinking but no one cares anymore!
Track Name: Displaced
Dust and dirt gracing their tattered clothes.
Those restless wanderers searching for a home.
They've become footsore such a long time ago, but still they're marching on.
Still they're marching on.
With burning lungs and bloody feet they walk.
Still they're not giving in. No they're not giving in.
Is there a place where they can finde some peace?
A place without hatred and hostility?
Is there a place where their houses don't end up burning?!
Every new day has become an endless fight, against their
own mind, giving up and their will to
survive.
But still there seems to be no end in sight!
Is there a place where they can finde some peace?
A place without hatred and hostility?
Is there a place where their houses don't end up burning?!
Why would you let them burn?
Why would you let them die here?
Just give them something to call their home!
Track Name: Live // Live
Face to face communication is overrated.
A relict of the past generation, long forgotten and gone.
We expose our lifes as if it's nothing.
Living life for everyone except for ourselves.
It seems like we are never alone a thousands friends we
all can call our own.
We think that we know everyone, but we know nothing about them at all.
It's always being connected.
It's being together alone.
A generation of screen stroking app-aholics, talking to n
o one but their phones.
We are the like society.
Sharing our lifes with the whole wide world.
We are the like society.
Attention whores in mass production.
We know nothing!
