Track Name: byte of my byte, pixel of my pixel
softly spoken to my eyes
images of naked flesh they tell intimate lies
how could I want her if she's not mine
how could I want her If she doesn't even exist
how could I want her

and this game will always go on
in this world venus is just a slave of Mammon
how do I fight against those evil Gods
oh lust in the eye only also is adultery it is

softly spoken these intimate lies
could I just not turn away my eyes
why should I look at her if she's not mine
why should I look at her if she doensn't even exist
why should I look

and this game will always go on
in this world venus is just a slave of Mammon
how do I fight against those evil Gods
oh lust in the eye only also is adultery it is
oh beautiful re-creation oh sweet deception
byte of my byte and pixel of my pixel
Track Name: the chosen one
Am I the chosen one
who's gonna save the world
am I the chosen one
from the ancient prophecy
they all told me that I was the one
they all believe will deliver
they all see something that I'm not
And I'm here face to face with evil

I'm just a pointless stupid postmodern guy
on opium for the people I've allways been high
distraction much more pointless than the most deformed religion
I've wasted my whole life and now I'm ready for nothing
the great nothing

I'm not chosen one
that was gonna save the world
I was not the chosen one
from their stupid prophecy
they still think that I was the one to save them from evil
they still believe that I will deliver the way their fairy tales told them
but here I'm being torn into pieces
it wasn't me they needed to fight this evil


I was just a pointless stupid postmodern idiot
I didn't learn a thing, I cannot use their stupid magical sword
and now the world must end, and evil will take over forever
I've wasted the world I wasn't ready for nothing

should I've been the chosen one
that could've saved the world
