Lyrics:

If you take the final journey will anybody mind
That you´ve given in and you leave this fucking world behind
losing your composure and letting out the worst
They just kept on pushing till you finally burst

You are going nowhere – progress aint no luck
The windmill just keeps pushing and you´re forever stuck
you´ve had this inner strife for your whole life
to be what you can be
to overcome the mediocrity of society
The windmill vane keeps pushing through your brain
It´s all so wrong as you´re trying to be strong
you´re powerless to the arbitrariness - never of your choosing

You´re tilting at windmills/ it keeps coming from above
You begin to ask yourself /when will you´ve had enough
At some point there is a limit/ to the shit someone can take
And you´re asking yourself is it time to go/ are you about to break

Along with bare necessities and commodities for your drinking sprees, oh tell me
is inner peace something to find for your restless mind
idle hands are friends of the devil
you shit your fucking pants untill you finally unravel

you´ve had this inner strife for your whole life
to be what you could be
to overcome the mediocrity of society

The windmill vane keeps pushing through your brain
It´s all so wrong as you´re trying to be strong
powerless to the arbitrariness - never of your choosing

You´re tilting at windmills/ it keeps coming from above
You begin to ask yourself /when will you´ve had enough
At some point there is a limit/ to the shit someone can take
And you´re asking yourself is it time to go/ are you about to break

you ask yourself is it time to go now
or can you still find your way through somehow
how much shit are you about to take
until you finally break

You´re tilting at windmills/ it keeps coming from above
You begin to ask yourself /when will you´ve had enough
At some point there is a limit/ to the shit someone can take
And you´re asking yourself is it time to go/ are you about to break

You aint going nowhere – progress aint no luck
The windmill just keeps pushing and you´re forever stuck
