about

Sophomore album by Ludovik Material.

Model Generation manifesto:

My generation is the model generation, seeing how never before a generation managed to produce so many outstanding individuals. I, like each and every one of us, am a rainbow of talent, a little wonder - and that’s why I deserve a wonderful future. I have long buried all gods along with my faith in anything else, so now the only sacrifices I make are those to my Self while building the virtual altars for all the potential followers. How could anyone refuse to like me? After all, I’m the pulsar of perfection - right, mommy?
There’s no question whether I will become someone, the question is only who. The next Nobel prize winner in physics, or should I simply become Steve Jobs? Should I be the ultimate yoga guru, or why don’t I maybe try for Jimmy Hendrix himself, that might not be so bad. Just wait and see till I decide, and then a whole new Universe will open up. Žižek can lisp all he wants about the degenerate era we live in, but my place is among the winners. That's why I’m waiting patiently ‒ on mute, if you will ‒ for my D-day to come. I am permissive upbringing’s bad conscience, I’m Big Brother's favourite child. Banks love me as surely as they love newlyweds, I’m the excuse for the Invasion of the Middle East, I’m what’s keeping the Bangladesh sweatshops in business, I’m the green consumer, I’m the silent witness to the global shock doctrine . . . And my destiny is to one day send the world's audience into ecstasy ‒ and save the planet while I’m at it. This is simply bound to happen! And if you don't love me by now, you're just not my generation, are you?

Track Name: All Yours
There's so many things you'd like to know
You'd like for me to show it all
You want to crawl inside my brain
You want to know my every cell
My every thought, my every step
‘Cause you'd like to protect me from myself
But you know it all, ‘cause you’re everywhere
And you like to have it – total control

You wanna know which things I like
What keeps me sad, what makes me smile
What inspires me to drink so much
And which boy’s ass I like to touch
But you know it all, I’m all yours
You’ve got it now – total control

You wanna know what stuff I read
You wanna know what I believe in
If I’m a threat and if I’m the worst
If there’s a nuclear warhead in my purse
And there are a few things I’d like to blow up
Your self-esteem, your mass surveillance
Your faithful servants, your total control

The stars and stripes have shaped the world
The watchdogs – they forgot to growl

You know it all – you got me now
You got me now – I’m all yours...
Track Name: Model Generation
We are good children
Oh, so well behaved
And we know better
When there's no time to speak

We are good boys
We are good girls
We are good

Brought up to stand out,
we’ve each been raised to be a star
But trapped in our safety zones
Bribed with dreams that were never ours

So well put in order, so well put on mute
What a model generation, there's no one we disturb

We are good children
Oh, so well behaved
And we know better when there's no time to speak
Come on and make some noise
Come and disobey
Stop being such a good good boy/girl and leave a trace

When silence gets too comfortable
No one hears the one who shouts

So eager to please that we forget what we want
Self-destructive youth obsessed with itself

We are good,
We are too good, too well behaved
Leave your rooms and safety zones
We gotta make them afraid
Track Name: Summertime
Past ideals replaced by ambitions
Resistance became a label you wear
Trying so hard to get recognition
By those you've despised not so long ago

You’re doing so well, you're full of success
You know what is right, but you're losing yourself


Didn’t we listen to the same songs
Weren’t the idols we killed the same ones
Didn’t we say we won't go down their way
What a wonderful life, all by the book
What a wonderful lie, I know you feel it too
But the summer will come and take all the doubts away

You’re running out of time
You’re running out of love
You’re running out of life
You’re running out of yourself or whatever is left of you

You’ve got it figured out
You have this whole life-time plan
You start despising yourself
But you’re gonna be fine

‘Cause the summer will come and take all your doubts away...
Track Name: Reign Of Silence
Did you hear what they said
Some people sang and they took them away
Did you hear what they said
Their song was loud and the words weren’t right

Did you hear, loud voices of the numb...?

They tied them up, they poisoned the air,
They cut their tongues, but the song still remained

Reign of silence’s falling down…

Did you hear them sing, a million voices as one
Screaming out their rage, screaming loud and pure
Did you hear and did you sing, or did you stay numb?

Reign of silence’s falling down…
Track Name: Let's Unite!
Rano jutro zlo mi jutro...

We'll burn your anthems into our hearts
Sacrifice our best cattle to your gods
Our prettiest boys to make you smile when you desire
Our bravest girls to continue your breed when you require

Let's unite!

When others fall, we'll crave for more!

Let's unite!

And please do tell us
How to think the way you want us to think
How to wash the east and south off ourselves
What to do to become as good as you
Who to hate and who to admire
Who's your next threat now
Who’s the next to bow
So you can fulfill your desires

Let's unite!
Track Name: Cleansing
I think my time has come
And I'm starting over
I'm releasing my fears

I'm ready to have a few drinks
With the one who knows it all
I'll stand still, I won't act surprised… and I'm ready to smile

I’m done with the choosing
When there’s really nothing there to choose from
Enough with the abusing of my will


I’m done feeling guilty
For all the wars I haven’t started
Someone’s got to make the headsmen pay

And I'm letting it go
All the rights and wrongs of the pedestal
I'm starting all over again
Words don’t mean a thing if you don’t bleed them out
And these few words and beats and tunes are all I’ve got

We’ve buried the old gods
And the new ones wait on the discount shelves
In colours so bright, you’ll go blind

We’ve modernized our feelings
And numbed ourselves behind the screens
We found brave new ways of cleansing guilt

I still feel too young to betray it all
These few tunes and beats and words are all I’ve got
But words don’t mean a thing if you don’t bleed them out
Would you bleed for me if I bleed for you
Track Name: Failed Plans
It’s time to get away
It’s time to get away from the people we want to smell after the morning after... fuck
Away from those we get hooked on, at least for a while until the hype wears off

It’s time to leave this town
It’s time to rest at least for a little while

It’s time to hide from our fucked up friends
Their young bodies, their tired eyes and bitter smiles
They know too much, it's time to grow up
Away from the fears, and a million doubts
All the expectations we set for ourselves, we failed them all…

It’s time to leave this town
It’s time to rest at least for a little while

It’s time to run from our failed plans
From all we craved to be
And everything we'll never become
Away from those who haven't done a thing
And from ourselves, I guess we haven't done enough

It’s time to leave this town…

But soon enough we'll return
We’re gonna hug our friends, we're gonna laugh, oh, the fuckery away
We’re gonna set new rules and set new laws, and set new plans, we're gonna set new people
and we’re gonna fail them all again…
But now it's time to leave this town, we're gonna find a new one and rest for a while
Track Name: Workin' Ass
Is it burning yet
Do we feel the same
Will it make you move
Who will cure the pain

Oh, righteous Vergilius let's take a trip
Now I will guide you through this last round that’s left
The creator is gone, he’s had enough, now clowns so grotesque are ruling this circus of dread
I can no longer laugh

Is it burning yet
Do we feel the same
I have no more cheeks to turn
I can no longer laugh

Oh, righteous Vergilius let's take a trip...
The clowns have mastered their art
They’re even praised for their crimes
The crowd is amused – still cheering for more,
Still paying the price, still attending the show,
The same old crowd never has enough,
Oh, Vergilius please take me home...
