    Randy, you confuse me... haha. You tell me that you don't really like songs that don't have lyrics/vocals... yet just here you say you don't pay attention to lyrics. Lyrics are most of the point of having a vocal track! If people just saying "la la la do do do" for an entire song, what would you think then???

    Ummm...my favorite part of "Tom's Diner" is the chorus. The rest is just filler.

    No, but seriously, you are 100% correct to be confused about that, haha. It's weird...a song is better with words, but I don't necessarily need to know what those words are. I have honestly never thought about how little sense that makes. Now, if I do hear the lyrics and they sound like crap, it does take me out of the song. But melody is really foremost for me.

    I've been listening your album for few days, it's slower than a usual punk album, it's more like an intellectual punk. Also very German-sounding. I love the album cover, it's very eye-friendly. Thanks for the special link!

    About Hate Me. It's very... Ricetigerish...
    Before you speak think about what you're trying to say.
    Who else is there to blame for miscommunication?

    Thank you! This was actually the first album I wrote, so on the one hand the lyrics are not that good, but on the other hand, the songs are very special and don't sound like generic punk rock songs. The second and the third album will be a bit faster and also a bit darker, I guess.
    I'm happy to see that you like the artwork, too. Also, I'm glad that Hate Me is so well received as I love that song, too.

    I don't know what's happening to me, but "Confessions of the Music Industry" is by far my favorite (excluding the first two, as I have more familiarity with them), followed by "Say What You Mean," then "Blind". I like the overall sound of it, a la Free?'s description.

    Well, that's surprising me, too. But it's surprising me in a very positive way Also I'm relieved that you like Say What You Mean as I thought I could have done that one better and wasn't quite satisfied with it.
    I think Say What You Mean was the song that I worked on most, no wait, that was All I Can Say I think All I Can Say is my equivalent of Randy's Big As Life as there are like 5 versions of it

    After the longer wait, there is a new song on our myspace now. It's from the upcoming album called "Toy Of The System", which I'll probably upload soon. The song is called "Toy Of The System", too.
    Also, I had the idea to post some information about every song each day in this thread. Should I start doing this? I'd probably start it along the upload of the album.

    So, this would be the track listing for the album:
    1. I Don't Live For You
    2. The Toy Of The System
    3. Reign Of Stupidity
    4. Animalistic
    5. Falling
    6. Punk As Hell
    7. Dj Vu
    8. Daily Confrontation
    9. Selloutz!
    10. For The Country
    11. Mature
    12. The Hunt
    13. Youth Subsides


    ...and here are the lyrics for the new song on our myspace:
    The Toy Of The System

    Marked by the grey jungle
    Apathy makes you tumble
    You just took the way
    Never thinking about the day

    And since I don't want to end like you
    I think about decisions
    Try not to become a fool
    And guard all of my visions
    Cause I don't want to be the toy of the system just like you

    Concrete walls isolate your life
    Scornfulness stabs you like a knife
    Colourful surfaces slowly fade to gray
    You don't think of no alternative and accept this damned betrayal

    And since I don't want to end like you
    I think about decisions
    Try not to become a fool
    And guard all of my visions
    Cause I don't want to be the toy of the system just like you

    ad8 ... would it be possible to upload some of your stuff, so that I can download them into my collection instead of going through myspace.
