Clawfinger - Nothing Going On

I’ve been around the world I’ve got a hit in the charts
I’ve become quite famous But I ain’t got no heart
I’ve got expensive clothes and lots of money to waste
I’ve got the luxury lifestyle but I aint got no taste

Nothing going on nothing going on
I’ve got a whole lot of nothing
Nothing going on

I know all the right people, I’ve got the perfect smile
I’ve got the worlds best timing, but I ain’t got no style
I’ve got a great big mansion, I’ve got a beautiful wife
I’ve got a black rolls royce, but I’ve got no life

Nothing going on nothing going on
I’ve got a whole lot of nothing
Nothing going on
Nothing going on
Nothing going right, nothing going wrong
I’ve got a whole lot of nothing
Nothing going on
Nothing going on nothing going on
I’ve got a whole lot of nothing
Nothing going on

I’ve got a personal trainer, I ride a limousine
I’ve got a big bank account, but I ain’t got no dreams
I’ve got a private plane, the best of everything
I’ve got a lifestyle to live, but no message to sing

Nothing going on nothing going on
I’ve got a whole lot of nothing
Nothing going on
Nothing going on
Nothing going right, nothing going wrong
I’ve got a whole lot of nothing
Nothing going on
Nothing going on nothing going

I’ve got a whole lot of nothing
Nothing going on
Nothing going on
Nothing going on

CLAWFINGER - The Truth (LIVE Woodstock) // AFM Records

Speak the truth don’t you dare lie to me
I’ve seen it all before the way you disagree
The way you always attack all the thing that you say
The way you turn your back and then you walk away
Shut your mouth and open up your eyes
You better take your time and try to realize
That no one’s free from sin and when I look at you
I scream within WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU
You raise yourself up to the higher degree
And look down in disguise at our misery
You’re no better than your enemy
But it’s easy to hate what you just can’t be
Don’t deny the fact that you’re a mortal man
You can’t escape from death when it’s close at hand
Don’t sit upon a pedestal and raise your voice
If you’re to deaf to listen to the people choice

Truth tell me the truth the truth motherfucker
Tell me the truth
Tell me the truth
Tell me the truth the truth you sucker

You play us out and you take all us for fools
But I never understood who even made the rules
I’ll make my stand against supremacy
Cos hypocritical goverments threaten me
I know you ain’t blind and I know you’re aware
But your ego’s to big for you to even care
The doors are wide open but your eyes are closed
You’re unable to look any further than your nose
You open your mouth and all I hear is lies
You keep spreading your message that I despise
Because the game you’re playing is so easy to see
It’s just another repeat of our history
You talk about peace it’s a very strong word
It’s always being said but it’s never been heard
Hi-tec weapons are here to reasure it
But I’ve never seen a time when they’ve done a shit for it

Truth…

Kick it to me now cos I just can’t figure
Take a small mistake and make a small one bigger
Equality’s a word have you ever even heard it
I guess not and you don’t deserve it
Turning your backs on the problems that surface
I get a feeling that you’re doing it on purpose
Your mind is SLIME so please resign
You can’t control your own life don’t try to rule mine

Truth…

Clawfinger haben sich aufgelöst

Clawfinger

Freunde, falls ihr noch auf das angekündigte „Deafer, Dumber, Blinder – The 20 Years Anniversary Box“ gewartet habt, Clawfinger haben heute bekannt gegeben, sich nach 20 Jahren aufzulösen und wie es ihrem Facebook-Statement zu entnehmen ist, scheinen sie sich diesen Schritt lange und gut überlegt zu haben:

Sometimes you grow together, sometimes you grow apart, sometimes you don’t grow anywhere but you still keep on going anyway for lack of better options because its all you know how to do! Anyway the simple truth here and now is that Clawfinger are calling it a day, throwing in the towel, going fishing, quitting and moving on to pursue other goals in life! After 20 years, 7 albums, more than a thousand gigs and 10 million beers consumed together it’s simply time to put the band to rest and do other things! Nothing is of course ever carved in stone but please don’t hold your breath, that is if anyboby out there is stupid enough to even consider doing so!:D

It’s been one hell of a ride, no doubt about it, bumpy yes, long and winding yes, full of dead ends and wrong turns but all the same one hell of a fucking ride, an experience to remember and treasure for life! All our love, repsect and admiration goes out to the people who have supported us along the way, the fans most of all because you’ve always been the fuel on our fire but hell, even the records companies deserve a little thanking at a time like this. There are too many people to thank but you know who you are and if you’ve been there for us so respect to you all for the love, patience and understanding you’ve shown us through the years. You’re dedication has been priceless and maybe we’ll see you out there again for the 30th anniversary if we decide to try & cash-in on past achievements with the old classic reunion trick, only time will tell!

Thank you for everything, respect and one love to you all! Clawfinger.

Das leichte Augenzwinkern zwischen den Zeilen lässt natürlich hoffen, denn die Hoffnung stirbt ja bekanntlich zuletzt. Schade drum, wünsche den Jungs alles Gute auf ihrem weiteren Weg und danke für die genialen Songs und die grossartigen Feste! Nachfolgend ein eher untypischer Song der Jungs, der mir aber immer ausserordentlich gefallen hat und wer weiss wie es weiter geht: Only time will tell…
