Track Name: No Future
Man is just a simple beast cursed with stupidity and greed
His insatiable lust and hunger leads to sickness and disease
Man throws away his future like he casts away his past
If he continues down this road then man surely will not last

A nuclear holocaust is just around the corner
The loaded gun points at his head, his finger on the trigger
Those who die from the politics become victims of the time
While a radioactive death await for those left behind

Man is war, man is suffering
Man is hate, man is an anomaly
But man is also great, he holds his destiny in his hands
Unless he makes a change there is no future left for man

No Future!
Track Name: Ethnocentrism
Selling war
A crusade against those that are different
We learn to hate what we do not understand

The textbooks preach
That there is no truth but our own
We learn to hate what we do not understand

Selling war
And the prospect of national purity
We learn to hate what we do not understand
Track Name: Folly of Man
Dividing us through fratricide and mindless self-destruction
Entice us with our lust for power and sexual reproduction
Form a single file line behind a government or church
And war against each other to determine what you're worth
While the opiates are numbing and the media says to "taste it"

Just because it's part of your culture doesn't mean you have to embrace it

You can talk about change, you can talk of revolution
But without any sort of action there's no hope for a solution
They can try to kill my passion but they can't stop me
They can never prevail over humanity
They can try to change the future but they can't change me

The folly of mankind, the death of civilization
A disease that's running rampant throughout every single nation
Complete control of media, a play upon our needs
The hand of those who hold the power is the hand from which we feed

You can talk about change, you can talk of revolution
But without any sort of action there's no hope for a solution
They can try to kill my passion but they can't stop me
They can never prevail over humanity
They can try to change the future but they can't change me
They can try to take my freedom but they can't take me!
Track Name: ロマンチスト (Romanticist)
何でもいいのさ 壊してしまえば
お前はいつでも アナーキスト
壊れていくのは てめえばかり
むかみそになって オポチュニスト

吐き気がするほどロマンチックだぜ
吐き気がするほどロマンチックだぜ

誰でもいいのさ 手をつなげば
おまえはいつでも コミュニスト
ゴキブリみたいに 数だけ殖やし
手拍子取り出す スターリニスト

吐き気がするほどロマンチックだぜ
吐き気がするほどロマンチックだぜ

良心的にと 手をさしのべて
助けてあげると モラリスト
しゃしゃり出るほど 顔がない
臭いで犯す ヒューマニスト

吐き気がするほどロマンチックだぜ
吐き気がするほどロマンチックだぜ

天気のせいだぜ 笑い出したら
公害無毒の ナチュラリスト
夕焼け見ながら 即席平和
天のお告げだ ジャパニスト

吐き気がするほどロマンチックだぜ
吐き気がするほどロマンチックだぜ

おまえはアナーキスト ナショナリスト
スターリニスト オポチュニスト スタイリスト
フォーマリスト リベラリスト ヒューマニスト
ソーシャリスト イスト イスト イスト イスト!

吐き気がするほどロマンチックだぜ
吐き気がするほどロマンチックだぜ

お前は!
