Track Name: We won't be told (Live mix)
Have we evolved at all as humans
Have we evolved at all as men
Have we evolved at all as humans
Or do we have to start again

Why do we have the same old problems
Why don't the answers seem to work

Have we evolved, have we evolved
Have we evolved like this
We won't be told, we won't be told
We shake our heads, our fists
Maybe our chance is gone

Why can't we find another refuge
Somewhere brand new to place our trust
Or is the brave new world too precious
To leave our robots out to rust

Would we be happier bionic
If we gave up our flesh and blood

Have we evolved, have we evolved
Have we evolved like this
We won't be told, we won't be told
We shake our heads, our fists
Maybe our chance is gone

Have we run out of new ideas
Are all the barrels really scraped
Are we the sum of all our fears
Emotions we can't separate

What if we wiped the slate completely
Is there a chance we'd start again

Have we evolved, have we evolved
Have we evolved like this
We won't be told, we won't be told
We shake our heads, our fists
Maybe our chance is gone

Track Name: Not too big (minimal mix)
30 cities
none of them big
but altogether
they're one big metropolis

Millions of people
but we think that we're small
we say: ''just act normal
that's crazy enough after all''

So when we need buildings
bridges and tunnels
houses and motorways
it shouldn't be striking
so this is what we say:

Please not too big
and not too tall
we like it flat and small
with many trees
or we build walls
in fact, we don't like things to change at all

We have this system
where everyone can
give his opinion
about every vision or plan

We call it poldering
some say it's not wise
cause every ambition
leads to grey compromise

So goodbye to ambition
and daring big visions
hello to the complex game
that will take ages
to let it all look the same:

but during the past few months I noticed something strange
there were many big new plans and no complaints
are we waking up? are there some changes made?
do we connect ourselves to the world or do we fade?

Please not too big (just keep it modest, we are calvinists)
and not too tall (if it's above ground level: reject it)
we like it flat and small
with many trees (get on your knees)
or we build walls (it's all prestige)
in fact, we don't like things to change here
don't like things to change here
we don't like things to change at all
Track Name: Downloaded (extended mix)
In my mp3 are the tunes I need
All through the day the music plays
No don't talk to me, I won't answer you
Just listen on to another song

Spending all my nights downloading tunes
Which every single day I play

Rhythm, reverb, basslines too
Downloading is what I do
I am downloaded

No I never talk while I walk
I nod my head to the girls instead
And the people stare, I don't care
What they think, I don't even blink

Spending all my nights downloading tunes
Which every single day I play

Rhythm, reverb, basslines too
Downloading is what I do
I am downloaded

Spending all my nights downloading tunes
