What Are You Fighting For?

Oh you tell me that there's danger to the land you call your own
And you watch them build the war machine right beside your home
And you tell me that you're ready to go marchin' to the war
I know you're set for fighting, but what are you fighting for?
 
Before you pack your rifle and sail across the sea
Just think upon the southern part of the land that you call free
Oh, there's many kinds of slavery and we've found many more
I know you're set for fightin', but what are you fighting for?
 
And before you walk out on your job in answer to the call
Just think about the millions who have no job at all
And the men who wait for handouts with their eyes upon the floor
Oh I know you're set for fighting, but what are you fighting for?
 
Turn on your tv, turn it on so loud
 
And watch the fool a smiling there and tell me that you're proud
And listen to your radio, the noise it starts to pour
Oh I know you're set for fighting, but what are you fighting for?
 
Read your morning papers, read every single line
And tell me if you can believe that simple world you find
Read every slanted word till your eyes are getting sore
I know you're set for fighting, but what are you fighting for?
 
And listen to your leaders, the ones who won the race
As they stand right there before you and lie into your face
If you ever try to buy them, you know what they stand for
I know you're set for fighting, but what are you fighting for?
 
Put ragged clothes upon your back and sleep upon the ground
And tell police about your rights as they drag you down
And ask them as they lead you to some deserted door
Yes, I know you're set for fightin', but what are you fightin' for?
 
But the hardest thing I'll ask you, if you will only try
Is take your children by their hands and look into their eyes
And there you'll see the answer you should have seen before
If you'll win the wars at home, there'll be no fighting anymore

Change of Coast

[Verse 1]
You...
Never knew me at all, now did you?
A-A-All the details
I drink to it, oh, oh, why so true?
 
[Pre-Chorus]
I don't know, I don't know
If it's any different from before
And I don't know, I don't know
If you got what you were looking for
 
[Chorus]
Change of coast, change of heart
And I, I knew it from the start
You had a change of heart
A change of coast, a change of heart
And I, I knew it from the start
You will change your heart
 
[Verse 2]
Through
Every little low he gave another chance too
You got sunlight
And you got two open eyes and whatever's left
I don't know
I don't know, it's all you've ever spoken of
So, you had to go
You had to go and find whatever show you were
 
[Chorus]
A change of coast, change of heart
And I, I knew it from the start
You gonna change your heart
Change of coast, change of heart
And I, I knew it from the start
You gonna change your heart
 
[Outro]
Change of coast, change of heart
And I, I knew it from the start
You gonna change your heart
Change of coast, change of heart
And I, I knew it from the start
You gonna change your heart
 

YouSeeBIGGIRL/T:T

Alles Lebendige stirbt eines Tages
Ob wir zum Sterben bereit sind oder nicht,
der Tag kommt sicher
 
Ist das der Engel, der vom dämmernden Himmel hinunter flog?
Ist das der Teufel, der aus der Felsenspalte heraus kroch?
 
Tränen, Ärger, Mitleid, Grausamkeit.
Frieden, Chaos, Glaube, Verrat.
Wir werden gegen unser Schicksal ankämpfen
Wir dürfen uns nicht in unser Schicksal ergeben
 
Mit Trauer und Entscheidung im Herzen
zeigen wir den Willen weiterzugehen
Niemand darf eigensinnig seines Lebens beraubt werden
 
Mit Trauer und Entscheidung im Herzen
zeigen wir den Willen weiterzugehen
Niemand darf eigensinnig seines Lebens beraubt werden
 

In the Dreamtime

The scent of smoke on desert wind
Beneath the Southern Cross
Far beyond where time begins
And generations lost
 
I could not be further from you
Now, with both feet on the ground
But in the dreamtime
Souls take flight
And I am a closer to you now
 
If I should lay me down to sleep
By forest green or shining lake
I could arise to find you gone
To take for granted my mistake
 
Yet I could not be further from you
Now, with both feet on the ground
But in the dreamtime
Souls take flight
And I am a closer to you now
 
Mountains crumble, forests vanish
Seeds awakened by the fire
Water, air and earth have born them
And I can feel my old ones near
 
Yet I could not be further from you
Now, with both feet on the ground
But in the dreamtime
Souls take flight
And I am a closer to you now
 
Flames are dancing in the fire
Timeless songs are on the air
In the wilderness they're crying
But there is laughter everywhere
 
And I could not be further from you
Now, with both feet on the ground
But in the dreamtime
Souls take flight
I am a closer to you now
I am a closer to you now
 

Quack Pack Intro (German)

Aaaahhhhhh! Ich muss jetzt quacken, ja das ist mein Stil.
Ich mache quack quack quack, bis ich krieg, was ich will.
Ja, das Quackquackfieber haut mich glatt vom Stuhl. (Oh yeah!)
Jeder mag es, jeder mag es, jeder mag es, das ist voll cool! Quack, Quack, Quack, Quack Pack!
Quack, Quack, Quack, Quack Pack!
Quack, Quack, Quack, Quack Pack!
Ohhhohhh.. Quack Pack!
 
Das ist unser,
das ist unser,
das ist unser Geschmack!
Quack Pack!
