Track Name: Pawn
PAWN

Music & Lyrics by John Georgakopoulos

ALL I WANTED WAS TO TRY FOR THE BEST
AND LIVE MY LIFE ON MY OWN
BUT LIFE'S A BITCH AND STARTED ME WAR
I'VE ALWAYS FOUGHT ALL ALONE
COEXISTENCE PERFORCE
I HAVE TO PLAY THE ROLE
TOLERATION
I CAN'T STAND NO MORE
LIES,INJUSTICE
MY HATE RAGES ON
HYPOCRISY
DON'T WANNA BE A PAWN

WHY I HATE YOU?
CAUSE YOU'RE FULL OF SHIT
WHY I ADORE YOU?
CAUSE YOU CAN'T BE LIKE ME
A GREAT IRONY TO ME
AND A BIG ABJECTION TO YOU
ONCE I TREATED YOU RIGHT
YOU TOOK ADVANTAGE
WHEN I ASKED FOR HELP
YOU WEREN'T THERE
MORALITY
AN UNKNOWN WORD TO YOU
THE REASON
FOR YOUR SELFISH SOUL

DIGNITY IS A PRICELESS THING
BUT SOCIETY CAN MAKE YOU
BE A FUCKING SNITCH
YOU'LL GET GREEDY
YOU WILL SELL YOUR SOUL
RESPECT TO BE RESPECTED

ALL I WANTED WAS TO TRY FOR THE BEST
AND LIVE MY LIFE ON MY OWN
BUT LIFE'S A BITCH AND STARTED ME WAR
I'VE ALWAYS FOUGHT ALL ALONE
COEXISTENCE PERFORCE
I HAVE TO PLAY THE ROLE
TOLERATION
I CAN'T STAND NO MORE
LIES,INJUSTICE
MY HATE RAGES ON
HYPOCRISY
DON'T WANNA BE A PAWN

FUCK YOU AND YOUR SELFISH SOUL
Track Name: An Episode That's Gone
AN EPISODE THAT'S GONE

Music & Lyrics by John Georgakopoulos

LIFE IS SO UNPREDICTABLE
THAT MANY TIMES HIDES
HOWEVER I ESTIMATE
THE THINGS THAT HAPPENED
IT FOOLS ME TWICE
SO INTRIGUING
FEEL THE DANGER
LIVE INTENSE
ACTION ADRENALINE
REACHES HIGH
FORGET THE RISK
CONSEQUENCES
DESTRUCTION
NO AWARENESS
UNCONSIDERED
DECISIONS
THROWN TO EMPTINESS

WHAT I LIVE EVERY DAY
IT'S LIKE A MOVIE AN EPISODE
IMAGINE THINGS IN MY MIND
AND THE FUTURE UNFOLDS

SO INTRIGUING
FEEL THE DANGER
LIVE INTENSE
ACTION,ADRENALINE
REACHES HIGH
FORGET THE RISK
CONSEQUENCES
DESTRUCTION
NO AWARENESS
UNCONSIDERED
DECISIONS
THROWN TO EMPTINESS

BUT I'VE ALWAYS WONDERED
WHAT WOULD HAPPENED
IF MY CHOICE WAS OTHER
OPPOSITE THINGS COMING

AND ALL THESE DEPENDS
OF A SIMPLE MOMENT
A MOMENT WE BLURRED
AND CAN'T REALIZE
A MOMENT OF MADNESS
GAMBLING WITH LUCK

AN EPISODE THAT'S GONE
IT'S GONE
Track Name: Silence Around
SILENCE AROUND

Music & Lyrics by John Georgakopoulos


AND THEN PEOPLE TURNED TO ROBOTS
THEIR EMOTIONS WERE FROZEN
NO CARENESS FOR THE FELLOW BEING
EVERYTHING IS DONE FOR THE PERSONAL GOOD
NOT FOR THE PUBLIC WEAL
AN ENDLESS DESIRE OF MONEY AND POWER
DOMINATES IN THEIR MINDS
SOCIETY BECAME A THEATER OF UNREASONESS
WITH ACTORS TO PLAY THE ROLES
THE IMPOSITION OF LIFE

MADNESS AND PANIC SURROUNDS ME
MAKES ME WORRY FOR TOMORROW
THINGS THAT I'M SEEING
MUCH PAIN I'M FEELING
I CAN'T THINK POSITIVELY
I'M LOSING CONTROL
FEAR TOOK OVER MYSELF AGAIN
BUT STILL I'M THINKING

HOW INSENSITIVE CAN SOMEONE BE?
HOW SOULLESS CAN SOCIETY MAKES HIM?
WHEN HE WILL OVERTAKE HIS LIMITS
TO HARM ANOTHER MAN?

AND THOSE WHO CREATED ALL THESE
ARE CONTINUING DESTROYING LIFE
POLITICIANS AND CAPITALISTS
THIEVES AND LIARS!
HYPOCRITES AND GRASPERS!
YOU BUILT A SOCIETY WITH FAKE LAWS
YOU LIED TO MILLIONS OF PEOPLE
YOU TURNED TRUST TO BLACKMAIL
YOU NEVER CARED FOR ANYTHING
YOU STOLE PEOPLE'S MONEY
THE BREAD FROM THEIR TABLE
YOU WIPED OUT CHILDREN DREAMS
YOU THINK YOU GET AWAY?

I'LL KEEP FIGHTING YOU
UNTIL THE DAY I DIE
AND WHEN I'M STARRING YOU IN THE EYES
YOU'LL BE STARRING THE GROUND
Track Name: Don't Regret
DON'T REGRET

Music & Lyrics by John Georgakopoulos

I NEVER REGRET
BECAUSE I WANT TO
BECAUSE I HAVE TO
EVEN I DO WRONG
I KNOW WHAT I WANT
TO HAPPEN
BUT MIGHT BE HARD
I STAND BY MY OWN

INSISTENCE AND NO MERCY
FOR THOSE WHO DESERVE IT

I WANT TO TAKE
MY REVENGE
FOR THE PAIN I FELT
FOR THE MOMENTS OF SORROW
EMOTION RULES WITHOUT CONTROL
I ATTACK WITH HATE
TO PROTECT MYSELF

PUNISHMENT EXCESSIVELY
MUCH PAIN YOU GONNA FEEL

I DON'T REGRET FOR MY ACTS
BECAUSE I 'VE DONE THEM
AND NOTHING'S GONNA CHANGE
I WILL ENDURE THE CONSEQUENCE
I WILL BE PROUD FOR MYSELF
I WON'T CHANGE AT ALL

MY WILL GUIDE ME INSTINCTIVELY
LIFE'S A RISK
I HAVE TO SEE

IN A ROTTEN COUNTRY OF DECEIT
IF I ACT NICE
I WILL BE FOOLED
SOCIETY FORCED ME
NO CHOICE FOR ME
I ATTACK BEFORE THEY ATTACK ME

INSISTENCE AND NO MERCY
FOR THOSE WHO DESERVE IT

PUNISHMENT AND NO MERCY
NO MERCY

I WANT TO TAKE
MY REVENGE
FOR THE PAIN I FELT
FOR THE MOMENTS OF SORROW
EMOTION RULES WITHOUT CONTROL
I ATTACK WITH HATE
TO PROTECT MYSELF

INDECISION BRINGS MADNESS
I ONLY LOOK FORWARD
ACTIONS WILL BRING THE SOLUTION
NOT WORDS
I DON'T REGRET
BECAUSE I WANT TO BELIEVE IN ME
SELF KNOWLEDGE
SHOWS THE PURE EMOTION

IN A ROTTEN COUNTRY
PLUNGED IN LIES AND INJUSTICE
GUILTS AND DEPRESSION
WILL MAKE ME VULNERABLE

I NEVER REGRET BECAUSE I WANT TO
BECAUSE I HAVE TO
EVEN I DO WRONG
Track Name: Bedlam Echoes
BEDLAM ECHOES

Music & Lyrics by John Georgakopoulos

EVERYTHING STARTED
WHEN A COP KILLED A CHILD
AND ALL THE ANARCHISTS GOT MAD
AND STARTED TO DESTROY
THEY WERE BURNING EVERYTHING THEY SAW
AND ATTACKING TO POLICE
WITH THE INTENTION TO KILL
A COP FOR REVENGE
CIVILIANS WERE SHOCKED
FOR THIS TRAGIC INCIDENT
THE WHOLE YOUTH
WAS OUT IN THE STREETS
AND BEGUN TO PROTEST VIOLENTLY

BLOOD RUNS AGAIN
REVENGE IS AT HAND
CHAOS WILL BRING
THEY ARE THE MARTYRS

A SITUATION OUT OF CONTROL
EVERYWHERE FIRES AND REMAINS
BANK AND SHOPS ALARMS
WERE BELTING OUT EVERYWHERE
FIRE BRIGADE'S AND POLICE SIRENS
WERE RINGING ENDLESSLY
LOUD VOICES OF HATE
SPREADING IN THE CITY
COPS GONE ADRIFT
AND FEARED FOR THEIR LIVES
TERROR IN THEIR EYES
THEIR ONLY DEFENSE
THEIR ONLY SALVATION
WAS TEARGAS IN THEIR HANDS

BLOOD RUNS AGAIN
REVENGE IS AT HAND
CHAOS WILL BRING
THEY ARE THE MARTYRS

BUILDINGS AND SHOPS
TOTALLY BURNED ON EVERY STREET
HAND TO HAND FIGHT ON EVERY ALLEY
GUERRILLA WAR
IN A SUPPOSED DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY
A SUDDEN WAR
THAT STARTED WITHIN MINUTES

A RAIN OF MOLOTOV BOMBS AND STONES
AND THE SMOKE FROM THE FIRES
WERE COVERING BLOCKS
MOMENTS OF SHIVER
THE ATMOSPHERE
WAS FROWST AND DANGEROUS


THE ANGER TOOK DAYS
AND THE NEWS WERE KNOWN WORLDWIDE
THE OUTBURST OF DECEMBER THE SIXTH OF 2008
THAT LEFT FADELESS SIGNS
AND PICTURES IN OUR MINDS
TO MAKES US REMEMBER
THAT VIOLENCE BRINGS VIOLENCE

BLOOD RUNS AGAIN
REVENGE IS AT HAND
CHAOS WILL BRING
THEY ARE THE MARTYRS

Track Name: Rational Self Redress
RATIONAL SELF REDRESS

Music & Lyrics by John Georgakopoulos

HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE BEHIND BARS UNFAIRLY
RUINED LIVES
DIVIDED FAMILIES UNFAIRLY
AND HOW MANY BASTARDS ARE FREE
BECAUSE THEY BRIBE THE JUDGES
EVERYWHERE IS MAFIA AND BLACKMAILERS
BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT

MURDERERS WITH COSTUMES AND TIES
CRIMINALS WITH UNIVERSITY KNOWLEDGE
ALL IN A NETWORK WITHOUT AN END
THAT HAS SPREAD IN EVERY JOB
IN EVERY SECTION
BUT THE WORST THING IS
THAT INSIDE THIS ROTTEN SYSTEM
ARE PEOPLE THAT HAVE CHILDREN
I DREAD TO THINK
WHAT KIND OF UPBRINGING ARE GIVING THEM
HOW BADLY ARE INFLUENCING THEM
THE FUTURE LOOKS SO BLOODY

SO WHAT JUSTICE?
WHAT MERITOCRACY?
AND WHAT RESPECT?
WHAT HUMAN RIGHTS?
WHAT MORALITY?
WHO GIVE'S A FUCK

THEY THINK THEY'RE SMART
MISQUOTE THE CONSTITUTIONAL LAW
MAKING FORGED DOCUMENTS AND SIGNATURES
BUT REVENGE WILL WAIT PATIENTLY
AND THE HARD DONE BY
WILL STAB YOU IN THE BACK
LIKE YOU DID BEFORE

MAN WILL TAKE THE LAW
IN HIS OWN HANDS
BECAUSE HE HAS TO PROTECT HIMSELF
HIS FAMILY HIS HOUSE AND HIS PROPERTY
HE'LL DESTROY FOR REPRISALS
HE WILL KILL IF HE HAS TO
HE WILL MAKE THIS ACTIONS TO COME ON THE SPOT
