about

Down By Contact Cologne, Germany

Sprechgesang is nich Metal und Gitarren sind nich HipHop und Hardcore is eh ganz anders?

Scheiss auf Schubladen, denn Down By Contact zerlegen die ganze Kommode in Einzelteile. Freiheit liegt nicht im bloßen Brechen von Konventionen, wirkliche Freiheit fängt da an, wo Konventionen nicht mehr interessieren. Die Frage ist nicht, was als richtig oder falsch GILT, sondern was sich richtig ANFÜHLT.

Track Name: Eye to Eye
Eye To Eye

dropping bombs will support the election
drawing attention into the wrong direction
suddenly seeing the mirrors reflection
recognising it's fraction
telling us it's terrorism we've got to fight
thinking that none of us is too bright
propaganda makes the individual go down
hiding the colour of your policy: it's brown

you call this freedom, i do not
you think you can fool me, i find your wrist cut
don't you feel ill?
taking the pill

we're livin' in this backbreaking motel
it seems to us like a heartshaking hotel
realise we're caught in this groove
got to recognise it's the system we've got to move
keeping people dumb with no proper education
two-class war is what follows in such a nation
making your voters looking like morons
is killing ok? oh no! oh no! come on!

the machine is working so smooth
it works 'cause we got caught in the groove
watch out that you don't get hit
sitting eye to eye with a pyramid

always we obeyed the rules as they came
finally something appeared which is shame
breaking the cycle we set as our goal
never again we'll be caught in this black hole
the system we commited is defect
we gotta change it with a deep impact
to stop'em continue the pain to inflict
predict the conflict
movements in motion is what will turn up
the streetfighting rebels will act and jump up
our approriate outcome is freedom of soul
and calming the sreaming crowds in the mole

you call this freedom, i do not
you think you can fool me, i find your wrist cut
don't you feel ill?
taking the pill

the machine is working so smooth
it works 'cause we got caught in the groove
watch out that you don't get hit
sitting eye to eye with a pyramid

i will not participate
no

eye to eye with a pyramid

the machine is working so smooth
it works 'cause we got caught in the groove
watch out that you don't get hit
sitting eye to eye with a pyramid
Track Name: Refuse
I refuse to be responsible
I choose to let things be
I refuse to be the constable
I hate when you rely on me

Learn to cope and get up on your feet
Stand up now and make your own ends meet
It's obvious why you feel greed
I'm tired now of taking the lead

Not knowing what to do and when
There's no one to blame but you
Bad childhood upbringing and no friends
What you think you're gonna do?

Explain, excuse, i'm sorry, oh know
You act like you wouldn't know
Do yourself a favour and stop the show
Stay on your knees and you'll never grow


And now you stuff my ears with grease
And you think I'd give a fuck
And all your words just seem to me
Like a swamp in which I'm stuck

Now and then you show up cryin' like a bitch
'bout your life being so hard and your problems and shit
and you keep on complainin' and you curse and you swear
I got my own problems sissy we all got a cross to bear
cross to bare


I refuse to be responsible
I choose to let things be
I refuse, I refuse, I refuse, I refuse

Now and then you show up cryin' like a bitch
'bout your life being so hard and your problems and shit
and you keep on complainin' and you curse and you swear
I got my own problems sissy we all got a cross to bear
Shut up!


I hate when you rely on me
Track Name: Inside
With my finger on the trigger
You'll be in need of a grave digger
The soil on top you will be thicker
And I'll not stop until your head is a sticker
In my album about the people like you are
With a crowbar in their consciousness
And your loss will not leave a scar

Not here not there / not where you are
Not here not there / not where you are

I must be devil driven
Hell is in me
I must be devil driven
The fire is ignited
I must be devil driven
There'll be no mercy sighted
I must be devil driven
Hell is in me


I am the propaganda
You sell it to the innocent
I am aware of hatred and fraud
You build up and intrigue at news time and court
One is caused by the other
Like envy and fear
My drive is not to be silent No!
I'll show up the way you are trying to steer

Not here not there / not everywhere
Not here not there / not everywhere


I know that it is a problem
That I cannot keep back my hate
The people are buying your bullshit
I cannot stand here and wait

I know that it is a problem
We were educated by thee
But in everything wrong there is something right
Now stand up and fight


I must be devil driven
Hell is in me
I must be devil driven
The fire was ignited
I must be devil driven
There'll be no mercy sighted
I must be devil driven
Hell is in me burning real bright
Track Name: Locusts
Take it now
Waste it now

A legion outnumbering creation by far
Everything's the swarm all hail it
No bones and no lungs and no heart
A pack of conformistic carnivores

Like needles heading for the knives edge downwards forever more down


Liberation is in your hands
Take it now
Segregation is a treasure
Waste it now

Take Now Waste Now
Take Now Waste Now


Like water flowing into infinity
Gathering filth aside the known path
Spinning the world in outrageous agility
Jaws talking of a warming hug

Like needles heading for the knives edge downwards forever more down


Liberation is in your hands
Take it now

Segregation is a treasure
Waste it now


Take Now Waste Now
Track Name: New Beginning...
Puddle of blood deep red on the scenes
Corps dropped dead lay in between
More Slaughtered bodies rarely were seen
Assistant detectives choking over the hedge
Things change shit happens no one can see
Into the future get smacked by the mean
Fait as it seems people go down
Who have no faith in their destiny

You thought it would crack us we're already broke
At least it would need just one more stroke
But as we arise from ashes you witness
There is no sickness that can blow our swiftness
Message to all who thought we are down
Open your eyes and give ear to this sound then
Spread the news Spread the news

Like phoenix we arise from the ashes

Back to the bloodbath as we have seen
The curious gather the critics convene
Groups and the crowds start to scream
People pray for the good to redeem

And if it's not enough the press invades
Dozens of pens and mikes are keen to
Spread the news Spread the news

Like phoenix we arise from the ashes


Step by step we're moving forward
Endlessly crawling through the night
Step by step we're coming towards
Step by step right into the light

Arise from the ashes like what?
Fire!
