Recorded during The Final Chapter session in 2000 at Radio Gdańsk Studios
Another page torn off the calendar
Another year that didn't change anything
The same old shit surrounding us
Another friend goes off into the sunset
Surrounded by increasingly younger faces
We treat their youthful beliefs cynically
We think their enthusiasm is naivety
But that what's all around doesn't disgust me any less.
Fucking reality leads to insanity
Cynicism, bitterness, nihilism, auto - destruction
Without hope, but still unwilling to accept
We cannot deal with the pressure of everyday life.
The frames of sensitivity are over - taut
They break, pushing you into the arms of frustration
Waiting until the end brings salvation
We struggle in a cage falling in exhaustion
Escaping in addictions, temporarily losing oneself.
In the blood which daily flows in our veins
Track Name: Rejs Ku Zagładzie / Sailing Towards Destruction
A possessed ride straight into a radioactive sun
Shining darkly in a black sky
At the helm are clowns in suits
Smiling, they hide that what everyone knows
Group madness still makes us believe
That this ship is still under control
That we're still on course
To dock in a safe harbor
Open your eyes! The captain's insane!
We're blindly sailing! This trip is the end!
You still dumbly believe in their lies
Because it's too hard to live without a ray of hope
And the madmen in power will still stand at the helm
Until the earth turns to dust.
No one cares to admit that the helm is broken
The race towards power forces them to laugh
Blinded, they count on salvation in the life - boats
Meanwhile, like rats the fight at the helm
Track Name: Bastard
Years gone by haven't changed the mentality
The police still thinks the same way
We are protected by the law.
Which is supported by this sick system
Are you safe on the street?
Hearing the police siren?
Think, who's to blame?
who allows them to overuse their power?
Have you heard of their destroying demonstrations
Their protection turns into hate
There are no laws here.
Only night - sticks count
Track Name: Cywilizacja Jednorazowego Użytku / Disposable Civilisation
In a concrete jungle
Without sun or rain
Locked behind walls
Breathing in lead
In an endless traffic jam
On the road to nowhere
No one remembers the law of nature
Which unfortunately cannot be bribed
Mass psychosis of thoughtless consumption
Greed stronger than the will to survive
Treeless landscapes - no chance for rain
Progress and comfort have their own price
The cracked Earth suffers in silence
There's no tomorrow for her inhabitants
Track Name: Zamknięty Rozdział / The Final Chapter
Lift your head, look at the sky
Say goodbye to the world
Look, vultures are gathering blackly
Knowing, that they'll be the victim also
There in the distance, a bloody fire burns in the western sky
Restless Nature predicts what will happen
Only the one who is the image of God
Still doesn't understand what he's done
Blinded with his feeling of power
He is a leader, not nature's follower
He decided to make his own law
And he is certain to succeed
He will believe in his power to the end
Without know that its a closed chapter
Fire! The earth burns in eternity
Man! Gets his long awaited pay
Earth! Turned to ash, is blowing in the wind
End! The last chapter in the history of mankind
No conclusions. Over all the millenia
Greed and stupidity didn't allow thought
Exploitation instead of protection
Mankind's thoughtlessness - the end of existence
The Dying Planet - a bleak warning
For those who once discover the Earth
Maybe they will reach some conclusion
From the legend of the man who wanted to be God
