I hear them talking of freedom, I hear them lecture in love But somehow this set of values only applies inside the boxes they know It's the same old story of cognitive dissonance and closet boners The same old chorus of bullshit arguments based on the same old beliefs Get out and move on They want to streamline emotions, make everyone feel the same They only care for the morals that strengthen their cause And fill our lives up with shame The same old chorus of straight cocks that want everyone to bend over The same old story of narrow pussies that shun what does not fit with them Get out and move on So fuck how you want to fuck, give it all, do it right And fuck who you want to fuck But most all fuck them; this is your life Here is to love beyond borders, gender, tradition and race Let's tear down the walls that confines us, let's make some room to make some sense of this place It's the same old chorus, the same worn-out bigotry and bullshit stories How long before we can all just be free to live love that we want? Get out and move on

You're trapped here in this fucked up world without much chance but to go along Succumb to the cultural norm or find capacity to lay down your own path Can you disregard criticism and not turn into a shit Figure out how to be happy though everybody's shouting judgments in your face What do they know? They won't have to live inside your head It's a one-off show - we all pay for living with our deaths If you try and succeed, you'll have your happiness but you will be alone With no one around to recognize what you have and appreciate the greatness of your fight What do they know? They won't have to live inside your head It's a one-off show - we all pay for living with our deaths And when you go, you'll bring neither savings, cash or debt It's a one-off show - we all pay for living with our deaths

I've got a secret for you; most grown-ups here are wrong most of the time And they all feel insecure about their choices and lives They're mostly kids who grew big and forgot all about what they were taught at the playground So they bully and cheat and have a hard time to share And while growing up will not kill you, you surely won't feel stronger So take your time, here's your chance We're catastrophes alongside great inventions The world is yours once you know that parents are not all that they are cracked up to be Go out and learn on your own - they don't have all the knowledge you need We all find it hard to believe that we're insignificant in a greater perspective And every great thought ever conceived, we have tried to abuse Yet it's these small minds that produced songs and art so great it shook the ground Made dreams come true and moved us on We're catastrophes alongside great inventions Love is what counts and these moments will soon be gone forever So take your time, here's your chance We're catastrophes alongside great inventions

All these fucking humans, where is everybody going? I guess it must be summer somewhere The road to success seems to be jammed with busy people looking for the road to happiness There is no more to see than the world right before us We won't beat entropy - so here is a spoiler for you: In the end you're gonna die alone, you'll bring nothing with you when you go So free yourself from the things you own and spend your time with those people you love If we've never been so rich, the question is why are we feeling so poor I don't buy the idea that more consumption's gonna free us - the weight of our belongings ties us down It's true that time is money but the deal only goes one way - when time is out no bills will buy it back There is no more to see... But I know, yeah, I know we'll have good times to remember If we just learn to let go of all the things not meant for us And I know, yeah, I know we'll find value in our venture We can leave with a smile when we go And I know, yeah, I know soon everything is ending So don't mourn when it's gone but celebrate the times we had Cause I know, yeah, I know we'll have good times to remember We can leave with a smile when we go If we've never been so rich, the question is why are we feeling so poor

I feel alone on the crowded street, I don't fit in here it seems But all these people I barely see might feel the same way as me Alienation, no relation, there is a silence between us So let me hear you - if you're still alive For every lie that we told ourselves, for every war waged for peace For every freedom we gave away in order to feel more free Alienation and frustration, slowly builds up inside you But let me hear you - if you're still alive If you feel like screaming, just like I feel like screaming Let out what you believe in, let me hear you scream it I think we're more than we think that we are We can make our world sound that way, we can make the silence go away It all closes in but we don't make a fuzz or express how we feel Hoping the problems will solve themselves if we're pretend they are not real Deep down we know it, our time is over, the future sneaks up behind us But let me hear you - if you're still alive If you feel like screaming... Guitars are not meant to hang on the wall They should resonate with passion and change Voices are not meant to silently consent They should sing for the future's better days So let me hear you scream!

Stones are gonna get thrown Burning cars will light up the night The songs of millions in unrest will be our lullaby Will be our lullaby No one stands on their own Everyone came out to the fight Actions call for reactions The world will fall tonight So close your eyes and just fade away If we’re not here tomorrow something new will rise out of our remains A new joy and sorrow Beyond this night, a new dawn awaits Just close your eyes and fade away

Hidden in valleys and hills, silently blinking away A server collects and creates the tissue that makes up your whole life It's all to serve and protect, for features aimed right at you and Freedom* is now spelled with an asterisk * Terms and conditions may apply We’ve got our servers full of you and everything that you ever did We know your weight and your profile We’ll make our ad banners will fit you perfectly Because here we are selling everyone everything Your information’s on the line Yeah, here we are selling everyone everything Just carry on and you’ll be fine as long as you have nothing to hide You do your best to comply but you know someone who don’t (such as active animal or human rights activists, system critics or just people on the edges of the current political spectrum) And if you don’t give us your information your dad’s gonna lose his job But then your friends start to disappear or go to jail without trial You want out now but you’re in too deep and who knows who’s been telling on you We’ve got our servers full of you, what makes you sad and what makes you tick We know your face and your habits, you better watch out where you click You’re always on Format everything Let's hope that you have nothing to hide

It’s been so long, I hardly recognize you but here we are again How have you been? It’s good to see that we still love The things that everybody (else) hates It takes one laugh and the shyness of rusty friendship is quickly washed away And we are both reminded that we do this kind of thing too seldom these days Old friends and Irish Coffee, give me a reason not to quit These times we’ve shared so often, they matter more than I sometimes like to admit We are the bonds we choose to tie to webs of world and somehow keep alive When all context and random circumstances that brought us here cease to exist Old friends and Irish Coffee, give me a reason not to quit These times we’ve shared so often, they matter more than I sometimes like to admit And in our heads and in our hearts The path been set, we won’t grow apart And in our hearts and in our heads it’s just the start, there’s good times ahead There’s good times ahead There’s good times ahead!

“Be a man” and lay off your softness, this world will crush you without your toughness Learn to be hard and block out emotions that show your weakness These are words that have shaped many children and laid base for so much frustration, confusion and shame, enabled submission and domestic abusers All these ideas that are put in our heads of what we should aspire to be Reduce our ambitions to physical strength, sexual conquest and wealth Let’s start acting like hu-men before we kill ourselves So be a man who thrive among equals, who’s content with the size of his penis, who doesn’t need the team to live out ambitions or show his feelings A real man who plays with his children and stands up for the things he believes in, who's worth counting on, who can handle to fail and to show his weakness Let’s start acting like hu-men before we fucking kill ourselves

I spend most of my day time in a dark room, moving digits on a screen Trading time for food on the table, looking for a loophole out of here But here our kids and houses just serve to remind us of all the coming bills we have to pay So we stay in jobs that we don’t care for to afford more shit that we don’t need I really hope somehow science will save us ‘cause we don't stand a chance here on our own It seems all our abundances have played us -maybe it is time to let them go But the city's pretty nice in the summer when everyone's a little less depressed Can't make a difference all the time but for what it's worth, now, here's my try Here's another song to cheer you up My phone was manufactured in a big factory in the East With suicide nets around the buildings to catch depressed workers in their fall I really hope somehow some god will save us ‘cause we don't stand a chance here on our own It seems somehow our self-perception have played us - maybe it's the time to let it go Cause we all judge ourselves by our intentions And judge others by the things they do Everyone's a hypocrite but find a way to live with it Here's another song to cheer you up Just let it go But don’t let go I never tried to save the world in the first place I'm just trying hard to save myself Things look pretty hopeless on the worst days It feels like it is time to just give up and cry for help But this city's pretty nice in the summer when everybody's a little less depressed Things are changing all the time, today might be the day you crack a smile Here's another song to cheer you up Just let it go But don’t let go

I’ll walk these roads alone, turn off my telephone This merry melody will be the last of me The notes are out of key but there’s no one but me Nobody's listening to the words I sing Who cares what will remain when everyone's gone I’ll walk through the rain singing this song No more goodbyes to make, we’ll all go our separate ways The end of the world could have been much worse Who cares what will remain when everyone's gone I’ll walk through the rain singing this song There’s no time like the past and no future to see So I’ll walk through the blast humming this merry melody Na na na na na… It could have been much worse

about

Stöj Snak Aalborg, Denmark

Stöj Snak is a SCREAMER-SONGWRITER project from Aalborg, DENMARK.

Musically and creatively Stöj Snak is shaped by the punk scene. And though Stöj Snak is a step away from punk and the limitations of a traditional band, the political engagement, raw energy and anarchistic DIY approach is still very visible in the songwriting. ... more
