*Supremacy

Wake to see
Your true emancipation is a fantasy
Policies have risen up and overcome the brave
Greatness dies
Unsung and lost invisible to history
Embedded spies
Brainwashing our children to be mean

You dont have long
I am on to you
The time, it has come to destroy
Your supremacy

You dont have long
I am on to you
The time, it has come to destroy
Your supremacy

*Madness

I, I can't get these memories out of my mind
And some kind of madness
Is starting to evolve, mmmm.
And I, I tried so hard to let you go,
But some kind of madness

Is swallowing me whole, yeah.
I have finally seen the light,
And I have finally realised
What you mean.

Now, I need to know is this real love,
Or is it just madness
Keeping us afloat, mmmm.
When I look back, at all the crazy fights we had
It's like some kind of madness
Was taking control, yeah.

Now, I have finally seen the light,
And I have finally realised
What you need.

Now, I have finally seen the end.
And I'm not expecting you to care, no.
That I have finally seen the light,

And I have finally realised
I need your love,
I need your love.

Come to me
Just in a dream
Come on and rescue me
Yes I know
I can't be wrong.
And baby, you're too headstrong.
Our love is madness.

*panic station

You wont get much closer
Until you sacrifice it all
You wont get to taste it
With your face against the wall

Get up and commit
Show the power trapped within
Do just what you want to
Now stand up and begin

Ooh 1, 2, 3, 4 fire's in your eyes
And this chaos it defies imagination
5, 6, 7, 8 minus 9 lives
You've arrived at panic station

Doubts will try to break you
Unleash your heart and soul
Trouble will surround you
Start taking some control

Stand up and deliver
Your wildest fantasy
Do what the fuck you want to
Theres no one to appease

Ooh 1, 2, 3, 4 fire's in your eyes
And this chaos it defies imagination
5, 6, 7, 8 minus 9 lives
You've arrived at panic station

Ooh 1, 2, 3, 4 fire's in your eyes,
And this chaos it defies imagination.
5, 6, 7, 8 minus 9 lives
And I know you will fight for the duration

Ooh 1, 2, 3, 4 fire's in your eyes
And you know I'm not resisting your temptations
5, 6, 7, 8 minus 9 lives
You've arrived at panic station

*Survival
("Ah, ah ah ah", repeated)

Race

Life's a race
That I'm gonna win
Yes I'm gonna win
And I'll light the fuse
And I'll never lose
And I choose to survive

("Told you, so I", repeated)

Whatever it takes
You won't pull ahead
I'll keep up the pace
And I'll reveal my strength
To the whole human race
Yes, I am prepared

("You were warned and didn't listen", repeated)

To stay alive
I won't forgive
Vengeance is mine
And I won't give in
Because I choose to thrive
Yes, I'm gonna win

Race

("Told you, so I", repeat)

It's a race
That I'm gonna win
Yes I'm gonna win
And I'll light the fuse
And I'll never lose
And I choose to survive
("You were warned and didn't listen", repeated)
Whatever it takes
You won't pull ahead
I'll keep up the pace
And I'll reveal my strength
To the whole human race
Yes, I'm gonna win

("Fight, fight, fight, fight, win, win, win, win")

Yes, I'm gonna win

* follow me

When darkness falls
And surrounds you
When you fall down
When youre scared
And youre lost
Be brave
I'm coming to hold you now
When all your strength has gone
And you feel wrong
Like your life has slipped away

Follow me
You can follow me
And I will not desert you now
When your fires died out
No ones there
They have left you for dead

Follow me
You can follow me
I will keep you safe
Follow me
You can follow me
I will protect you

I wont let them hurt
They're hurting you, no
Ooh yeah
When your heart is breaking

You can follow me
You can follow me
I will always keep you safe
Follow me
You can trust in me
I will always protect you, my love
Feel my love
Feel my love.

*Animals

Animal
Youre an animal
Dont take anything less

Out of control
Youre out of control
Strike those in distress

Analyse
Advertise
Expand
Bend more rules
Buy yourself an island

Animals
Were animals
Buy when blood is on the street

Out of control
Were out of control
Crush those who beg at your feet

Analyse
Franchise
Spread out
Kill the competition
And buy yourself an ocean

Amortise
Downsize
Lay off
Kill yourself
Come on and do us all a favour

*Explorers

Once I hoped
To seek the new and unknown
This planet's overrun
There's nothing left for you or for me
Don't give in

We can walk through the fields
And feeling nature's glow
But all the land is owned
There's none left for you or for me
Who will win?
Cause I concede

Free me
Free me
Free me from this world
I don't belong here
It was a mistake imprisoning my soul
Can you free me
Free me from this world

A world lush and blue
With rivers running wild
They'll be re-routed south
With none left for you or for me
Don't give in
Hear the engines roar
And save our crops from drought
But when the black gold's in doubt
There's none left for you or me
Fuse helium-3, our last hope

Free me
Free me
Free me from this world
We don't belong here
It was a mistake imprisoning our souls
Can you free me
And free me from this world?

Free me
Ill free you
Free us from this world
We don't belong here
It was a mistake imprisoning our souls
Can you free me
And free me from this world?

Running around in circles feeling caged by endless rules
Can you free me
Free me from this world?

Shh, go to sleep

*Big Freeze
Healed? Or are you still just reeling?
Are you fine? Have you found a way to escape?
Are you here, just because I need you?
Can we hole up? A big freeze is heading our way

We are on a hiding to nowhere
We still hope, but our dreams are not the same
And I, I lost before I started
I'm collapsing in stellar clouds of gas

Hear me
What words just can't convey
Feel me
Don't let the sun in your heart decay

Fight, or will you show me mercy?
We've expelled, the goodness from our hearts
Are you here, just to prove youre winning?
Can we hole up, and ride out this electrical storm?

We destroyed something beautiful
We have faith, but our truths are not the same
Don't give up, dont let the magic leave us
Stop the loneliest force becoming king of the universe

Hear me
What words just cant convey
Feel me.
Don't let the sun in your heart decay

Don't give up, don't let the magic leave us
We're collapsing in stellar clouds of gas

Hear me
What words just can't convey
Feel me
Don't let the sun in our hearts decay

* Save me

Save me from my superstitions
Now I'm free, from this old condition
Wait just a while, and Ill greet you with a smile

Hold me 'cause I'm sure I'm hated
Promises, they are overrated
Wait just a while, while I'm drowning in denial

Turn me into someone like you
Find a place that we can go to
Run away and take me with you
Don't let go I need your rescue

Watch me 'cause I'm on a mission
Hold me back, so I'm forced to listen
Don't let me go, 'cause I'm nothing without you

Turn me into someone like you
Find a place that we can go to
Run away and take me with you
Don't let go I need your rescue

Turn me into someone like you
Find a place that we can go to
Run away and take me with you
Don't let go I need your rescue

*Liquid State

Take me for a ride
Break me up and steal whats left inside
And hope and pray iniquity has died inside and left a scar

Im on red alert
Bring me peace and wash away my dirt
Spin me round and help me to divert and walk into the light

Warm my heart tonight
Hold my head up high
Help me to survive

Kick me when Im down
Feed me poison, fill me till I drown
Wake me up before I get pushed out and fall into the night

Warm my heart tonight
(Force me to lose control)
Hold my head up high
(Watch as I lose my soul)
Help me to survive
(Push me until I fall)

* The 2nd law: unsustainable

All natural and technological processes,
Proceed in such a way that the availability
Of the remaining energy decreases.
In all energy exchanges, if no energy
Enters or leaves an isolated system,
The entropy of that system increases.
Energy continuously flows from being
Concentrated to becoming dispersed,
Spread out, wasted and useless.
New energy cannot be created and high grade
Energy is being destroyed.
An economy based on endless growth is
Unsustainable

Unsu... Unsustain unsustain unser
Uns' uns' unsustainer unsustainer
Unsu... Unsustain Unsustain
Uns' uns' you're unsustainable

The fundamental laws of thermodynamics will
Place fixed limits on technological innovation
And human advancement.
In an isolated system; the entropy
Can only increase
A species set on endless growth is
Unsustainable

Unsu... Unsustain unsustain unser
Uns' uns' unsustainer unsustainer
Unsu... Unsustain Unsustain
Uns' uns' you're unsustainable.

* The 2nd law: Isolated system

n an isolated system, entropy can only increase

(Random radio and TV transmissions broadcast on March 29th 2012 between 18:48 and 19:10)

In an isolated system, entropy can only increase
In an isolated system
In an isolated system (entropy)
