I was comparing it to the WWI phrase of "going over the top", which meant climbing from the trenches and getting gunned down by the Germans, while advancing on their position.

Oh I see. I guess that could be linked to going on a hopeless, suicide mission.

The way I see it there's really no need to be making lists at all if you're not getting involved with the community. It's getting to the point where it seems like +1ing but with a little more effort put in. If you like this thread enough to post lists every day, then you should like the users who post here enough to converse with them... amirite?

There aren't that many users here anymore who only come to post lists. There used to be way more in the past.

Lucky you. Authors are perfectionists, of course they are too lazy to make their own.

Then again, I have been slacking a bit when it comes to making icons so I suppose that explains why people don't come to me.

Well there are steak sandwiches already, right? I'm pretty sure I can get one at the Subway. A whole T-Bone though...
Well they are a different cut of meat than the T-bone. Most of those sold in Subway would be a tough flank steak typical on fajitas.

I thought it was more T-bone-ish meat cut to slices or pieces, but I don't know. I never pick that sandwich.

Exactly. Plus you can probably get some protection ^^
Can't afford extra protection. Trying to run a business and revenues are already thin and we'll end up bankrupt if we have to hire some muscle.

Hmm ... I suppose Mexican drug bosses don't use the Italian code of "If someone gives you trouble, you come to me.".

They will if no-one buys it for six months. :P

If the opening price is reasonable (I don't think 250 euros is a reasonable opening price for a handheld) I doubt that will happen.

And that deal you get sounds pretty awesome. Especially if you can pick any game.
Even better, you can play ALL those games. No catch!

Sweet.

I'd probably put games like Earthbound, Final Fantasy VI (GBA) and Chrono Trigger on my list.

Indeed. I got a feeling that it's more trouble for them than it is for the people they're trying to block.
Well, I can't see Blip being any issues for watching movies online.

I don't know what it is. Maybe Spoony himself decided to block content or block his website from people living outside the UK and USA. But that would be rather stupid I think...

Rucklo, the only guy who can make the BBS better by spamming it up.
We better get him back or at least clone him.

Good idea!

We should clone him and freeze him so that if the real Rucklo ever gets an accident, we got a spare one.

Lol. Use your Bahamut icon.
That's already my intention. I'd use an earlier level icon but that would make shit confusing for me.

Heh, yeah. You could use level 44 or level 42 I guess, but a Bahamut icon would probably look more awesome :p

I don't watch Spongebob, so I don't know how good or bad the dub is. But it seemed all right whenever I happened to zap through the show.

It's not that I turn my TV on for it, but when I zap passed it I usually put it on. It's quite an hilarious show in my opinion, but maybe the Dutch dub is better than the German one.

There aren't many decent dutch voice-actors around so you will often recognize the voices from other dubbed films and cartoon shows which is silly.
Of course there are a few voices you can hear on different actors. The worst thing that can happen is, if a voice actor that usually does the voices for one person isn't available and some other voice actor has to do the dubbing. Bruce Willis for example is usually dubbed by Manfred Lehmann (he has a GREAT voice! Fits perfectly to Willis). But in "Die Hard with a Vengeance" Lehmann wasn't available.
OK, the guy who dubbed him is the voice actor for Schwarzenegger, so he too knows how to dub 'very manly characters', but it still kind of sucks to hear a different voice.

I do think that is a much better way, but we simply don't have enough voice actors for that. Perhaps if we would dub more, more people would be willing to lend their voices...

But on the other hand I think it's funny if you recognize a voice from somewhere else and you keep thinking "Hm, where did I hear that voice before..." :)

Oh hey, Hermoine sounds just like Timmy Turner...

That's probably the most common complaint against subtitleing, but trust me, you will get used to it. And you CAN ignore it if you want. You don't have to look at it.
I have never been able to ignore subtitles, no matter how hard I tried. :(

Well I've been watching subtitles since I was little (cause we only dub children intended films/series), and it's really not that annoying or distracting once you get used to it.

I mean, most of the times when you're supposed to look at what is going on on the screen (i.e: action scenes, cinematographic shots) not much is said anyway. Except for a black guy going "Oh shit!" or something, but you don't have to read subtitles to understand that :p

When you do have to read a lot of subtitles is when characters are having conversations, but then there's usually not much else going on at the screen anyway so you won't miss much.

Admittedly, you might see less of the actors performances, but for some actors you don't want to see it anyway :p

You will get used to that too :p
But only if I can watch more movies with that accent.

Yeah well... usually it is done in such a way that it is not complete gibberish to the layman, because Americans hate reading subtitles too ;) I believe that was actually the biggest complaint of the American cinema goers when they saw Inglourious Basterds.

Speaking of which, how did they dub that film in Germany? The different languages was kind of a big point in the film.

Nah, it would be too expensive to use that cut of meat. The would tend to use some of the tougher cuts like a flank steak since it's relatively cheaper.

Hmm ... I suppose Mexican drug bosses don't use the Italian code of "If someone gives you trouble, you come to me.".

Nah, the golden age of mafias and their code has passed. It has become more ruthless and cut throat. I would have to hire men to protect the factory, transportation, as well as myself. Too much.

It's really just my point of view that if people are going to do one or the other, I'd rather they got involved with the conversations. Seems more productive considering we already have several people making lists here, yanno?

I'm not saying don't make lists, I'm just saying don't ONLY make lists :)

I'll try to add a little bit to each of my post here to make it so it isn't just the list alone. I can't promise much, though. What I add would probably be really short.

Good thing the NG meet ended in time, but still this riot is getting out of control.

It's been out of control for days now and it's exposing a lot of things about the communities. Most of them have parents who have no control over their offspring, there are frustrations out there with people who have jobs (the young people are the hardest hit when it comes to employment) and there's a lot of bad feeling towards the government who seem to be out of touch.

Basically, I think that we need to send in the army and actually start shooting people to make a point and get this stopped. If this makes me anything, it's ashamed to be English, as they have tarnished our good name. If I'm inspired to do anything, it's head to Birmingham with a broom and help with the cleanup. If I'm happy about one thing, the football's been cancelled, so it can be played at a proper time of year - this is the cricket season!

I was still in London yesterday but I left at 1 in the afternoon. Oddly enough, I actually went to Oxford Circus just before getting my train and one riot took place 10 hours prior to my arrival. Didn't see anything unusual, though but then again I made my focus on HMV and nothing else.

Not sure how I should feel about the London riots. On one side I think the looting and destruction is completely outrageous and would see every single one of these mindless looters spending jailtime for ruining other people's property. On one side, it was only a matter of time before something on this scale happened, with all the budget cuts and so that has directly affected many students that already struggle to get along on what little they have. I still don't think that justifies such action, nothing good will come out of it.

But as usual, I'm even more disgusted by the hatred I've seen from some. Along the lines of "line them up along a wall and shoot them". Hope it all works out in the end, with repercussions for the more violent rioters.

I somewhat agree, maybe not shooting people, just to get the point across, maybe tackle them down but I've heard this before, my Dad actually said the same thing.

If this makes me anything, it's ashamed to be English, as they have tarnished our good name. If I'm inspired to do anything, it's head to Birmingham with a broom and help with the cleanup.

Riots hit Birkenhead. The punks burned some cars nearby as well as smashing windows of all shops going all the way down to where my mum works. Her shop didn't get badly damaged but I still think it's unsafe for many to even work down there right now.

Make it never but I suppose you'll hear it at some point. I think No Sacrifice, No Victory is a lot better than it and the majority hated that album.

Those two should cover medieval metal already. Subgenres like these are why metal gets criticised for being ridiculous with specifics of metal. :P
But the lyrical themes of the medieval metal genre revolve more around burning witches, gleemen, kings getting murdered, etc. Nothing about dragons.

Maybe Falconer covers that.

I have played it for a couple of minutes and although I thought it was much better than the 3D-glasses at the cinema, it was kinda difficult to see clearly. If you tilted your DS just a little bit the screen already became blurry.

It's a good thing you turn it off I suppose, but then again... what are you paying those 250 euros for?

Sweet.

I'd probably put games like Earthbound

Yeah, he would pretty much lose his entire European fanbase (apart from the UK) that way.

I didn't know his girlfriend left him, but I guess that would explain why he's putting out more videos (and taking more time to go through Final Fantasy X-2).

But on Exp you're not gaining on me and I'm pretty damn sure I can get more BP per day than you can post. So this is a won battle :)

I don't watch Spongebob, so I don't know how good or bad the dub is. But it seemed all right whenever I happened to zap through the show.
It's not that I turn my TV on for it, but when I zap passed it I usually put it on. It's quite an hilarious show in my opinion, but maybe the Dutch dub is better than the German one.

I will never know since my dutch isn't good enouh to express an educated opinion on that matter. ^^

There aren't many decent dutch voice-actors around so you will often recognize the voices from other dubbed films and cartoon shows which is silly.
Of course there are a few voices you can hear on different actors. The worst thing that can happen is, if a voice actor that usually does the voices for one person isn't available and some other voice actor has to do the dubbing. Bruce Willis for example is usually dubbed by Manfred Lehmann (he has a GREAT voice! Fits perfectly to Willis). But in "Die Hard with a Vengeance" Lehmann wasn't available.
OK, the guy who dubbed him is the voice actor for Schwarzenegger, so he too knows how to dub 'very manly characters', but it still kind of sucks to hear a different voice.
I do think that is a much better way, but we simply don't have enough voice actors for that. Perhaps if we would dub more, more people would be willing to lend their voices...

I think the dubs in Germany is one of the best you can find. Sometimes (if it's available on a DVD I bought for example) I watch part of movies in a different language. Most of the time it sounds awful and isn't even lip synchronized.
A downside is that I have the feeling that people from countries where movies don't get dubbed so often are much better in speaking/writing english than people from Germany.

But on the other hand I think it's funny if you recognize a voice from somewhere else and you keep thinking "Hm, where did I hear that voice before..." :)
Oh hey, Hermoine sounds just like Timmy Turner...

Timmy Turner actually is dubbed by a man. :P

I mean, most of the times when you're supposed to look at what is going on on the screen (i.e: action scenes, cinematographic shots) not much is said anyway. Except for a black guy going "Oh shit!" or something, but you don't have to read subtitles to understand that :p

Yeah, but there are movies that aren't just action movies, like "Last Year at Marienbad" for example. I would hate to read all the dialogue (ah well, it's more like a monologue most of the time) in the subtitles. If I want to read something, I'd get myself a book! :P

When you do have to read a lot of subtitles is when characters are having conversations, but then there's usually not much else going on at the screen anyway so you won't miss much.

See above. "Last Year at Marienbad" has lots of dialogues and some pretty confusing images. If you have to relate to subtitles to get what is being said and at the same time you have to try and concentrate on the images... it wouldn't work out well, I guess.

But since I'm talking about a french movie right now. I never understood why there are so many french movies that make use of FRENCH subtitles. There's one french TV station I can watch on television and very often they show french movies with french subtitles. What's the use of that? ^^

Admittedly, you might see less of the actors performances, but for some actors you don't want to see it anyway :p

Hey, Steven Seagal is a great actor! >:(

You will get used to that too :p
But only if I can watch more movies with that accent.
Yeah well... usually it is done in such a way that it is not complete gibberish to the layman, because Americans hate reading subtitles too ;) I believe that was actually the biggest complaint of the American cinema goers when they saw Inglourious Basterds.

Yeah, but as a native speaker it's more easy to understand the accents. If I hear some of the german accents, like bavarian, swabian or (even worse) hessian I can usually make out most of what is said. Someone who's not a german native speaker will have a hard time understanding anything.

I don't know how good your german is, but try to understand something of this video. It's the dialect of the Saarland.

Speaking of which, how did they dub that film in Germany? The different languages was kind of a big point in the film.

I don't know, I watched the original version. XD

HammerFall isn't high on my list at this moment anyway.

Those two should cover medieval metal already. Subgenres like these are why metal gets criticised for being ridiculous with specifics of metal. :P
But the lyrical themes of the medieval metal genre revolve more around burning witches, gleemen, kings getting murdered, etc. Nothing about dragons.
Maybe Falconer covers that.

Hm, I don't know them too well so I can't comment on that.

You never know. They can use some fillers like cat meat to make it cheaper.

Hmm better look for a different location to set up your factory then. How does China sound?

It sounds like a hassle to move across an ocean.I'm not sure how inviting the Chinese are to an American company trying to but in in a industry already monopolized by them. What about the Netherlands? How is the business industry over there?

At 8/10/11 06:52 AM, Soapbubble wrote: Not sure how I should feel about the London riots. On one side I think the looting and destruction is completely outrageous and would see every single one of these mindless looters spending jailtime for ruining other people's property. On one side, it was only a matter of time before something on this scale happened, with all the budget cuts and so that has directly affected many students that already struggle to get along on what little they have. I still don't think that justifies such action, nothing good will come out of it.

It's shown David Cameron that he can't cut police numbers, because if anything, we need to spend more on their sector.

The jails are already full - giving each and every one of these jail time for their crimes is ludicrous. If you bring in the army, you produce corpses, which keep the jail numbers down, plus if they had jobs, you suddenly end up creating more opportunities for level headed members of society.

My dad suggested that we should bring out water cannon with dye in the water. That way people wouldn't come out, for fear of being hit and stained. I countered, by suggesting that when you round up all of these people that are dyed, you get them to clean up the mess.

But as usual, I'm even more disgusted by the hatred I've seen from some. Along the lines of "line them up along a wall and shoot them". Hope it all works out in the end, with repercussions for the more violent rioters.

The police are under too much scrutiny. The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) gets complains based on "heavy handed" tactics from the cops and frankly, I don't think you can be heavy handed enough with people that are running amok, smashing, vandalising burning and looting my country!

Hopefully, things will quieten down a bit now.

It's amazing that twelve months for now, people will be running the streets of London in pursuit of Gold, Silver and Bronze, all started off by the firing of one gun.

I have played it for a couple of minutes and although I thought it was much better than the 3D-glasses at the cinema, it was kinda difficult to see clearly. If you tilted your DS just a little bit the screen already became blurry.

I do wonder what they saw from the 3D gimmick. Was it really that good for them?

It's a good thing you turn it off I suppose, but then again... what are you paying those 250 euros for?

A new handheld, of course. One that will play plenty of future titles.

LOL!
Is that a funny pick? :p

I guess it'd be asking too much...

It is because Earthbound has far too many copyright issues to even have a re-release outside of Japan.

Sorry, the 3DS Ambassadors is restricted to 10 NES and 10 GBA games. It's not any game of your choice but some of these games will be exclusive to the early 3DS owners.
Oh well that's too bad. Though I suppose it could still be a sweet deal. So what interesting titles can you pick then?

"1.Beginning Sept. 1st, Nintendo 3DS Ambassadors will be able to download 10 NES%u2122 Virtual Console%u2122 games at no charge and before they are available in Nintendo eShop for the general public. These games, including Super Mario Bros.%u2122, Donkey Kong Jr.%u2122, Balloon Fight%u2122, Ice Climber%u2122 and The Legend of Zelda%u2122, will be released as paid downloadable games, but Ambassadors can download them in advance of launch for free. Once the paid versions of the games are released in Nintendo eShop later in the year, the updated versions will be available to Ambassadors for download at no cost.

2. By the end of 2011, Nintendo will provide Ambassadors with 10 Game Boy Advance Virtual Console games. These include games like Yoshi's Island%u2122: Super Mario%u2122 Advance 3, Mario Kart%u2122: Super Circuit, Metroid%u2122 Fusion, WarioWare%u2122, Inc.: Minigame Mania and Mario vs. Donkey Kong%u2122. These games will be available exclusively to Ambassadors, and Nintendo currently has no plans to make these 10 games available to the general public on Nintendo 3DS in the future."

I really hope Spoony didn't do that and I can't see why he would. Ever since his girlfriend left him, he has vastly improved with his videos and how he interacts with his fans. I want it to stay that way.
Yeah, he would pretty much lose his entire European fanbase (apart from the UK) that way.

I didn't know his girlfriend left him, but I guess that would explain why he's putting out more videos (and taking more time to go through Final Fantasy X-2).

I'd say it explains why his videos from this year are a whole lot better than what he did last year. Beating the shit out of FFX-2, reviewing bad movies based on fighting games and the Beastmaster reviews have shown he's made quite a comeback.

Then we should have an army of Rucklos.
Shit! That'd be a spam overkill and no mod could do anything about it :o

Which is why we freeze them all and unfreeze one at a time.

It sure will but only viewable on my end. I'll probably reach a post milestone while I'm level 49.
Well take a screenshot of it and post that pictures then.

Of course I'll show it.

Still though, I'd rather see the original than a dub in most cases. I got a feeling that more of the original work gets lost by dubbing than by subbing.

I've seen a few films where they even changed the original soundtrack in the dub, and it turned out awful. It didn't suit the film at all.

A downside is that I have the feeling that people from countries where movies don't get dubbed so often are much better in speaking/writing english than people from Germany.

Probably. Watching English films and playing English video games did really help me improve my English early on in life. I think it's the reason why I ended up with one of the top grades in English class in high school ^^

And it's weird, because I've always been more of a math and physics guy than a languages guy.

Oh hey, Hermoine sounds just like Timmy Turner...
Timmy Turner actually is dubbed by a man. :P

Not here he isn't. He's dubbed by a 48 year old woman, who's also an actress in the Dutch Sesame Street.

It's not uncommon for a male kid to be voiced by a woman by the way. I believe the English Ash (from Pokemon) is also dubbed by a woman.

I mean, most of the times when you're supposed to look at what is going on on the screen (i.e: action scenes, cinematographic shots) not much is said anyway. Except for a black guy going "Oh shit!" or something, but you don't have to read subtitles to understand that :p

Ah I see. I thought that film would be pretty odd if they all talked German. Considering they need someone to speak Italian at some point and Hans Landa's big thing is that he speaks four languages fluently.

These include games like Yoshi's Island%u2122: Super Mario%u2122 Advance 3, Mario Kart%u2122: Super Circuit, Metroid%u2122 Fusion, WarioWare%u2122, Inc.: Minigame Mania and Mario vs. Donkey Kong%u2122. These games will be available exclusively to Ambassadors, and Nintendo currently has no plans to make these 10 games available to the general public on Nintendo 3DS in the future."

I see. Some good titles there I guess, but I'd hope for some more good ones.

I'd at least get Metroid Fusion, Warioware and The Legend of Zelda.

Yeah, he would pretty much lose his entire European fanbase (apart from the UK) that way.

I didn't know his girlfriend left him, but I guess that would explain why he's putting out more videos (and taking more time to go through Final Fantasy X-2).
I'd say it explains why his videos from this year are a whole lot better than what he did last year. Beating the shit out of FFX-2, reviewing bad movies based on fighting games and the Beastmaster reviews have shown he's made quite a comeback.

I haven't checked out Beastmaster yet, but his FFX-2 does look very good so far. Like I said before somewhere, this time it does look like he takes his time to explain the games mechanics and go more in-depth. Something I thought I was missing in his FFX review.

Shit! That'd be a spam overkill and no mod could do anything about it :o
Which is why we freeze them all and unfreeze one at a time.

Yeah. Hopefully no-one will break into our secret lab and set all the clones free. 'Zat would be a disaster'.

Well take a screenshot of it and post that pictures then.
Of course I'll show it.

Good.

But on Exp you're not gaining on me and I'm pretty damn sure I can get more BP per day than you can post. So this is a won battle :)
Hey, even I admit to losing here.

Now to find out a way to beat Coop.

I really don't know what to make of all this rioting. Surely one single dead guy who got shot by the police can't be the reason for ALL of this. :/
The original riots were to do with that. The rest was just copycats. Basically, all the yobs started causing mayhem on the streets.

Yeah, that's what I thought. "Oh hey, let's go rioting and looting some shops! YAAAAY!"
Also, I just learned a new word. "Yob". Interesting.

Make it never but I suppose you'll hear it at some point. I think No Sacrifice, No Victory is a lot better than it and the majority hated that album.
HammerFall isn't high on my list at this moment anyway.
I'm glad for that. So what is high on your list right now?

More Opeth, I guess. ^^
And some more Death, maybe.

Maybe Falconer covers that.
Hm, I don't know them too well so I can't comment on that.
You should give them a shot. Although I only have three of their albums, they have done some really good stuff on the self-titled album and the latest album. Their newest release is sung entirely in Swedish.

Will do.

That Wylo guy kept making fun of my name. He'll pay for that!
Overtired should go to sleep!
I'm glad humantarget left!

Still over a year before I pass him. >:(

The argument about modern technology?
Oh yeah.
That was our greatest agreement ever.

I'm glad you think so. It at least was more fun than any "Manowar is gay" argument. ^^

I will never know since my dutch isn't good enouh to express an educated opinion on that matter. ^^
I suppose I wouldn't know about the German dub either. But I'd probably find the German dub hilarious anyway :p

Same for the dutch dub. :P
I guess I should give the danish dub a try as well. XD

I do think that is a much better way, but we simply don't have enough voice actors for that. Perhaps if we would dub more, more people would be willing to lend their voices...
I think the dubs in Germany is one of the best you can find. Sometimes (if it's available on a DVD I bought for example) I watch part of movies in a different language. Most of the time it sounds awful and isn't even lip synchronized.
Still though, I'd rather see the original than a dub in most cases. I got a feeling that more of the original work gets lost by dubbing than by subbing.

True. Sometimes the translations are shit.

I've seen a few films where they even changed the original soundtrack in the dub, and it turned out awful. It didn't suit the film at all.

Heh. I've never seen that. But sometimes the original sound (ie the voices, etc) are too quiet in the original - or the sounds from the environment are too loud. Especially some of the older Columbo films have that problem. A dub (or subtitles) really helps here, because all the voices are cristal clear.

A downside is that I have the feeling that people from countries where movies don't get dubbed so often are much better in speaking/writing english than people from Germany.
Probably. Watching English films and playing English video games did really help me improve my English early on in life. I think it's the reason why I ended up with one of the top grades in English class in high school ^^

Yes. Video games can teach you important things! :D

Oh hey, Hermoine sounds just like Timmy Turner...
Timmy Turner actually is dubbed by a man. :P
Not here he isn't. He's dubbed by a 48 year old woman, who's also an actress in the Dutch Sesame Street.

I know. That's why I mentioned it. :P
Bart Simpson is dubbed by a woman as well (Nancy Cartwright in english, Sandra Schwittau in german)

It's not uncommon for a male kid to be voiced by a woman by the way. I believe the English Ash (from Pokemon) is also dubbed by a woman.

Yes, because male kids have the problem that their voice WILL change once they get older. Grown women aren't that far away from sounding like a little kid, since their voices don't change too much in their life time.

When you do have to read a lot of subtitles is when characters are having conversations, but then there's usually not much else going on at the screen anyway so you won't miss much.
See above. "Last Year at Marienbad" has lots of dialogues and some pretty confusing images. If you have to relate to subtitles to get what is being said and at the same time you have to try and concentrate on the images... it wouldn't work out well, I guess.
Oh well, I guess that's just one problem case, but for most films it works fine.

Depends on the kind of movies you like to watch, I guess. :P

But since I'm talking about a french movie right now. I never understood why there are so many french movies that make use of FRENCH subtitles. There's one french TV station I can watch on television and very often they show french movies with french subtitles. What's the use of that? ^^
They sometimes do that here too, but only for the news when they interview someone who talks in a horrible accent :p

Oh yeah, sometimes on those horrobile TV shows they show during the day some people are subtitled as well. But I only ever see that on RTL, which we call "Unterschichtenfernsehen" (underclass television) anyway. XD

Admittedly, you might see less of the actors performances, but for some actors you don't want to see it anyway :p
Hey, Steven Seagal is a great actor! >:(
He sure is :p

Yes. I like how he can express all those different feelings with only minor changes in his mimic.

Yeah, but as a native speaker it's more easy to understand the accents. If I hear some of the german accents, like bavarian, swabian or (even worse) hessian I can usually make out most of what is said. Someone who's not a german native speaker will have a hard time understanding anything.

I don't know how good your german is, but try to understand something of this video. It's the dialect of the Saarland.
I could make out some lines and words, but it's difficult. Then again, I don't know if I would understand a normal German sitcom any better.

How about some Married with children, then?
Oh, and don't mind the artificial laughter, everybody here thinks it sucks as well.

Speaking of which, how did they dub that film in Germany? The different languages was kind of a big point in the film.
I don't know, I watched the original version. XD
Ah I see. I thought that film would be pretty odd if they all talked German. Considering they need someone to speak Italian at some point and Hans Landa's big thing is that he speaks four languages fluently.

I remember "Saving Privat Ryan", where they met that german guy. That scene made no sense in the german dub.

*Assuming all Germans are named Herman (just like Hans Landa)* XD
Yes, of course. We all are little "Herman the German". :P
Or Heinz? :p

No no, that's the ketchup brand. :P

When love is lost beyond your control
A pale shadow of lust can not enlight your soul
So keep your ice cold bitter illusions
I don't need your empty world my only solution
Is a Violent Revolution
Violent Revolution, Violent Revolution
Reason for the people to destroy

Beauty is no more it's all gone
And utopia will not come
