about

Intesive and versatile Songs

The band manages to create their own energetic and emotional mix with elements from Metalcore, Melodic Hardcore and Groove Metal. With their Sound and stage presence, No Kings No Slaves are also able to captivate the audience and create “powerfull live shows” (rawk.ch).


Gripping Lyrics

The new album covers topics such as transience, social ills and toxic relationships. It deals with emotions like anger, grief and insecurity, but also spirit of optimism and joie de vivre.
Singer and writer Julian Thalmann about the album:
«In the lyrics I try to go into topics and thought processes that occupy and concern me on a daily basis and that also raise many questions. I don’t necessarily only want to question the behaviour of society, but above all the behavior of myself and the one of my environemt. Even though this process brings out many emotions that leave you uncertain and questioning, I also want to show on this album the individual is able to change things. A change of scene or a new start can give strength after a setback or after a difficult decision . That’s where also the connection to the album’s name and the album cover originate.”

Track Name: Judgment
For fucks sake.
I don’t want to die, trying to live this life eye for an eye.
And even when the end is near most of us won’t see it clear.
This fear called living affects us all.
So don’t hesitate just try reach your goals.

Don’t let anyone’s judgement define, who you are.
Track Name: New Lease of Life
Surrounded by mountains and drawn to the sea.
Where will you go when silence starts to breathe?
We refuse to see, what we don’t believe.
Its right under our feet when we all start to bleed.

A small thing can cast a big storm you know.
You can't hear the screaming cause you still feel ignored.
Can’t see the waves breaking to the shore.
Infected with poison, but not all hope is gone.

A new lease of live, for more dreams to fight. let’s find an answer tonight.
A new lease of live, for more dreams to fight. let’s find an answer tonight, tonight.

I bared the snake skin from my shaking body, the creature`s eyes so dead and hollow.
They look at me and my heart it stops to beat and I can´t breathe,
My lungs collapse and my will to live decreases.
No energy left but I’m so afraid to sleep.

There is only one thing we can say to your so called vows.
You cannot learn to swim. When you start to drown.

Try to let go.

All laughter was drowned out, even my own voice it makes no sound.
In any moment I'll lose my head, not alive but also not dead.

Not dead.

Don't get swallowed by the sea, stay above and it will let you breathe.
Don’t look you don’t know what you'll find beneath.
Just keep on searching out in the cold.
Because frozen hearts can't bleed.

There is only one thing we can say to your so called vows.
You cannot learn to swim. When you start to drown.


They say divided, but we can fight it, let it go.
Track Name: Ticket to Far Away
I can feel the wind in my hair.
I can see the ocean right in front of me.
This beach is ours just for tonight.
These moments are gold, no worries when we`re at this place.

Hit the cans with the stones.
Lead to believe that we`re not growing old.
Strangers become friends within minutes.
We`re definitely far from home, yes we’re so far from home.

And we just have to live it up (We have to live it up)
It’s a one way ticket to far away.
Yet there is not a train that I, that I wouldn`t take. (No train I wouldn’t take)

Ticket to so far so far away.

When the sky burns red I know that we`re so far away.
We just want to do, what we, do what we really love, not just what we get offered.
Through the cold nights and through the warm days, I knew it from the first to the last day.
That even If the world burns down, we`ll still stay brothers.

Can you hear me?

And we just have to live it up (We have to live it up)
It’s a one way ticket to far away.
Yet there is not a train that I, that I wouldn`t take. (No train I wouldn’t take)
And no matter where were going, you will be a part.

The horizon shows us the way, one million places that we want to see.
And at a place that we love there will be no more chaos cause we`re not alone.
Singing songs and screaming out loud.
Track Name: Modern Life Slaves
Modern life slaves.
They say they want to help, but they are liars.
At the end of the day, you’ll see their desires.
To discriminate and concentrate on the unimportant things in life.
Mess up futures and won’t cease their strife.

Bring me ropes bring me chains put more nails in my brain, but our voices will be heard.
Bring me ropes bring me chains put more nails in my brain, I swear our voices will be heard.

And I’m so sick of it all, it has never been a close call
I’m so sick of it all.

Break out from the shadows we said, before the wildfire spreads.
Break out from the shadows we said, for all mankind they’ve ever mislead.

Life’s such a burden, such a burden when I see life, I see pain. This world is insane.

Could not foresee, the destiny. Could not foresee, no legacy .
What is the goal of controlling the masses?
When everything you've built will turn in to ashes.
Don't you see their scars? Can’t you see the their scars ?

Modern life slaves .
This time we will cut the ropes, and break the chains.
Rebuild the hopes and reboot our brains.
It is up to us to cremate the last remains.
Just push it through and don’t give up, despite the strains.

This is for all the people on the streets.
I can't forget what I have seen.
To all those suffering cause they´ve got nothing to eat.
And To everyone with a fucking bad disease.
To everyone that can’t act like they feel.
And to everyone that’s fighting feeling incomplete.

To you and to you and to you as well.
Let me tell that you will rise above this hell.
We are no modern life slaves.

What is the goal of controlling the masses?
When everything you've built will turn in to ashes,
Don't you see their scars? Can’t you see the their scars.

We’ re all the same.

We finished wars and saw sorrow on this world. It should be long over but it gets even worse.
Track Name: Humanity's Curse
I’m looking at the sky and can’t believe that there’s a destiny.
So what are we doing here.
Tell me what you see, just a small percentage of infinity.
Give me a reason to live.

I am standing there hearing loud noises.
But can’t change any of my past choices, I feel so poisoned after all.
When it ends, it will bring peace I can only give what I’ve received.
I’m just a flash in a can, without any fucking plan, its humanity’s curse again.

Show me how.
It’s just work, not about having fun.
Even if it hurts, it has just begun.
I’ve had enough.
It’s just work, not about having fun.
Even if it hurts, it has just begun.
I pray for this to end.

I am standing there hearing loud noises.
But can’t change any of my past choices, I feel so poisoned after all.
I am standing there not awake (not awake), it’s the truth we`ll decay in pain.

This feeling is getting worse.

And it will cause a fucking ruckus.
And it will cause a fucking ruckus.

Forget the thoughts that feel like a sin,
More honesty no more lying.

Forget the weaknesses and my tears,
Because it’s the time to lose my fears.

My fears.
Track Name: Hell (New)
I was lying in the dirt, with dirty hands and dirty feet.
Those empty words that I heard, a thousand times.
Still feel like a rope around my neck.
And it gets tighter and tighter, I have to pay but you are the liar.

And I don`t want to feel like this, no I don`t want to feel like this anymore.
And you have never been there, you’re just the pain that feels like a dagger in my head.
You ran and you never returned, while I was still alive and my skin got burned.
But now my body is cold, lying next to all the other poor souls.

I will be the ghost in the walls, and I will watch you when your fucking empire falls.
Don`t think that there`s an escape I will find you full of hatred and rage.

So do we all fade away.
Or do we stay.
And rot in our cage.

Six feet deep in our graves.
Worms and leeches cover the way.
Mouth shut and we can`t breathe.
We`re all suffering the same disease.
There`s no way out of here, there’s no way out of here.

This is not how my life should be.
Do you hear the words that I scream?
I tried to forget this hell yes I tried to forget.
Do you still see a light burning inside of me?
It`s gone and I`m on my knees.
You`re fucking dead to me, you`re fucking dead to me.
Dead to me.
Track Name: A Quiet Place
He was a good man, at first at least, before he turned into a beast.
He didn’t know what to do, to get through the misery that started to soon.
True love he said he was looking for, but only with the use of his fists he didn’t feel ignored.
Aggression as a friend and enemy, he only wanted to show how bad he felt.
Yet he still tried to hold on, while his mind was far-gone.
He destroyed his life it was the wrong way he took, to fucking scared to take another look.

Could it ever get worse ? She could not flee this curse .
Suddenly he turned his head and the world turned black.
To his surprise he saw the rope wrapped around her neck.
could it ever get worse? she could not flee this curse.
Life does not go even there’s always ups and downs.
It’s not black or white so you don’t have to feel alone.

She was a sad girl, but she would never tell, lived from day to day with thoughts out of hell.
and when she met her so called love she was looking for the past, to get rid off.
but it isn’t always easy to delete the past, the memories remain, they will always last.
another day another bruise another week more teeth knocked loose
it was too late when she saw the truth.


Refrain II

A quiet place

Refrain III
Track Name: Medication
Another day of feeling weak just, some more doctors I have to see.
I've been there the last two weeks, but I heard they use some new techniques.
I took all my medicine, some pentrexyl and aspirin.
My only chance to get fine again is to swallow all these pills.
Such a bitter taste.
The more pills I take the more problems I’ll face.
Such a bitter taste.

All this suffering all this pain, just believe all the lies or you will go insane.
All this suffering all this pain, just put it in my veins.

Medication I'm screaming for help. So please feed me the poison and give me all you've got.
Medication I'm screaming for help. Give me a better life; I don’t deserve to live like this.

Antidepressants all the time just to live a fucking normal life, but the real problems are deep inside.
Those pills they bring me to the floor.
but if I run out, I will need more.
Nevertheless they have not helped at all
and started my downfall.

I could not realize how it felt to be alive.

All this suffering all this pain, all this suffering all this pain.

Medication I'm screaming for help. So please feed me the poison and give me all you've got.
Medication I'm screaming for help. Give me a better life; I don’t deserve to live like this.

To live like this.
Track Name: Our Name Is Greed
We all act the same sometimes.
The hunt will start at sunrise.
When our selfishness is coming out.
Hard times have begun for the lonely sprout.

Its counting days from now on, too many people living at the margins of society.
I’m looking for ways to possess more than you.
I’m just looking for ways to reduce your value.

We think we earn what we seed (our name is greed)
While hurting others in need. (others in need)
Fuck our greed.

The Ignorance will take it all, another day another fall.
We keep on judging with our pitch-black soul.
Tell me how can we provide help? When we keep on fighting against ourselves.
Tell me how can we provide help? When we still support Illegal affairs.

We have it all , we have it all. But our ignorance is blinding us all.
We have it all , we have it all. But our ignorance is blinding us all, Fuck.
No thoughtfulness so fuck beliefs. We want you to bleed.
Our name is greed, greed, can’t you see it?

And I can’t resist the desire.

We think we earn what we seed (our name is greed)
While hurting others in need. (others in need)
Fuck our greed.
And I will tell you that’s the only thing I won’t upkeep, fuck our lead.
This will be the last time in which greed will reign, we will succeed.
Track Name: Electric Sky
I can feel it. I can feel it.
The unease inside my head.
I can feel it. I can feel it.
Not knowing what’s real or what I’m supposed to do.

This fetid smell in the air will forever be there a fucking lightning right in to my heart.
The clouds are getting dark, it begins with a small spark.
And the sky crackles some more, sounds like a thunder roar.
But when I fall down, I get up again.

It sounds like a thousand Voices, while feeling voiceless and the sky is electric.
So bright yet dark and I can’t give up when the sky is electric.
I want to know where I should go but I can’t handle the weight, the sky is electric.
Everywhere I go every path I take. The sky is still electric.

With open eyes, I’m trying to accept, and to feel again.

Can’t stop the bleeding, what’s wrong with me.
I can´t do what I want.
This is prison this isn’t life, pushing through the walls.
My head at the end of a scythe, I’m pushing through alone.
I’m stuck in here because of me. What have I done?

It sounds like a thousand Voices, while feeling voiceless and the sky is electric.
So bright yet dark and I can’t give up when the sky is electric.
I want to know where I should go but I can’t handle the weight, the sky is electric.
Everywhere I go every path I take. The sky is still electric.
Track Name: Losses
My voice is gone and my heart flatlines, behind the frontlines.
I’m choking slowly as blood fills my mouth, this war we`re in, is way too loud.
Deafness because of all the bombs.

Two shots, ready to die. Do you hear our battle cry?
Even if we die tonight, even if we die tonight.
Two shots, ready to die. Do you hear our battle cry?
Even if we die tonight, even if we die tonight.

Bad blood, not like the days before, just because we failed, and can´t take back what’s ours.

I can see just broken bones and tears.
I can see that we are all in fear.
People are praying, for mercy, even when all of us are gone.
They’re still praying, no solution.
They’ll pray tonight, they’ll pray tonight ,tonight.

Our shepherds will never be forgotten.

My eyes are open while I reach the end, with so many questions left.
That I can never ask again, that I can never ask again.
And it slowly starts to fade away I feel different, not like all the other days. All the other days.
This is just insane, we’re playing with death, we’re playing with death as I see, the past in front of me.
All the good things that I had and all the bad things that still make me sad.
These decisions won’t steal my sleep, anymore.

It all has come to an end.
To an end.
