Track Name: Future History
Class, please open your books on chapter 3
About a period in time not that unique
The best intentions unveiled by history
The past has been written, let's try to read

Will you remember?
How we loved to play keep-away
Girls and gays were seen as a different race
Considering other races animals
Treating animals as bad as beasts

Will you remember?
That we forgot to put things in perspective
Future history, a past yet to come

Will you remember?
Progress was not us moving ahead
It only meant the rest was moving back
Having more future in front than past behind
What harms us most now never came to mind
Track Name: Mother Inferior
Mother married the minister, she got divorced because of the abuse
Sold her body to the businessman, as before, the kids got bruised

Mother's task, to look after us, disregarded by her taste in men
Best for all would be to stress: please, be a single mom again

We, the kids, file for divorce
We, the kids, had it with these conflicts of interest
Keep in mind the welfare of us all
Keep your eyes focused on the ball
Track Name: Because We Can
Our tourist shades show us a dark view
A view of a world that needs our help
Instead of our so-called ‘development’

Take off those shades and see that there is a chance
Once they have something to lose
Something that they want to live for

We can't afford it
But we can avoid it

Our economy objects, we cannot afford their development
Well, neither can we afford to fail our moral responsibility

Because we can and we should
Track Name: Pink Print
I would hate this to sound sexist: “This goes out to all the girls”
So few here; girlfriends, wives and cooks, from the back of the room, only here for the looks?

I hoped we could provide a safer alternative
In this gated community, but it seems we've failed

Contrary to popular beliefs girls are not just donuts
How we warn our daughters shows how civilized we are

What do you expect, examples given and standards set?
How we treat our maids shows how civilized we are

Stop burning the witches, burn our blueprints on their stakes
And use the second sex' craft to bake a pink print for a change
