Tankard - Arena Of The True Lies Lyrics




Arena of the true lies
More fake news everyday
Arena of the true lies
Clickbait-headlines come your way

Celebrate the tools of modern excitement
That social media will bring to your screen
Like gladiators in ancient Rome
You'll fight the spectacle right inside your home

Millions of your friends are watching
Morons who pretend they're talents
Speeders and roofers want your likes
Beauty tips and cats, cooking versus sex

(Cooking versus sex)
(Speeders and roofers want your likes)
(Beauty tips and cats, cooking versus sex)

Arena of the true lies
More fake news everyday
Arena of the true lies
Clickbait-headlines come your way

This is about emotion - litter the truth!
Ignore the facts - do rumors need proof?

Arena of the true lies
Addiction guaranteed

Populism rules while the traffic goes crazy
Let's have some junk food 'cause it's PizzaGate-time
If skepticism does hurt your brain
Just follow all the others doing the same

Talking face to face is retro
Smarter phones replace your feelings
Tracelook and Critter shape your world
Dream in SMS, claim you're not obsessed

(Claim you're not obsessed)
(Tracelook and Critter shape your world)
(Dream in SMS, claim you're not obsessed)

Arena of the true lies
More fake news everyday
Arena of the true lies
Clickbait-headlines come your way

This is about emotion - litter the truth!
Ignore the facts - do rumors need proof?

Arena of the true lies
Addiction guaranteed

Millions of your friends are watching
Morons who pretend they're talents
Speeders and roofers want your likes
Beauty tips and cats, cooking versus sex

(Cooking versus sex)
(Speeders and roofers want your likes)
(Beauty tips and cats, cooking versus sex)

Arena of the true lies
More fake news everyday
Arena of the true lies
Clickbait-headlines come your way
Arena of the true lies
Addiction guaranteed

This is about emotion - litter the truth!
Ignore the facts - do rumors need proof?

  11. Lutz Petters

    SUPER !!!

  12. Juan Bascur Núñez

    ya decían tonto pero feo: "colo colo contra la u/aquí sólo faltas tú!" tankard hacen el enfrentamiento entre la cocina y el sexo. a veces las dos cosas pueden ir de la mano, si uno mira a la dani castro (mucho gusto).

  13. Gurkan Kilicarslan

    this is the song of the year no doubt. now it's december 2nd. i am pretty sure. lyrics are perfect true and the album too. kretaor and tankard made our year. thanks to german thrash metal big ones.

  14. Gabriel T

    😍😍😍😍love it!

  15. holydiver11

    I've just clicked like, damn what a paradoxical situation XD!

  16. Jaizz J. Z.

    When you just like hanging out, drinking beer with friends, form a band and call it "Tankard" - somehow become one of the Big Toutonic 4, gain lots of fans who find deep meaning in your lyrics.
    Tankard are awesome!

  17. rozkaz66

    THIS SOLO GUITAR IS AMAZING!!! TANKARD THE BEST

  18. Metal Samsara

    TANKARD RULEZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  19. Ben Baer

    "CLickbait thumbnails come your way"

  20. Lucas Beer

    Internet brought us freedom. They can show anything in the TV, internet will always correct them if needed. Although it's too late for the West. But the East of Europe will be saved. Thanks to those "populists" PS. Vote Angela Merkel for the 4th term conformists.

  21. ApocalyptikCity

    Nice song, Tankard!

  22. wilibald44

    OK but where is good old school thrash,beer and fun?I miss,I miss that...

  23. Tedi Trifu

    Ordered the CD+DVD+Beer Mug+Bottle opener and the Blue Vinyl

  24. I WILL EAT YOUR COOKIE :3

    tracelook and critter  jajajaja  it is facebook and twitter

  25. I WILL EAT YOUR COOKIE :3

    tankard RULES

  26. stratohammering

    Geiler Scheiß! Wird gekauft!

  27. Monsieur Schrackel

    Geiler Song!

  28. paul f

    So ziemlich das das intelligenteste Lied, das ich je von Tankard gehört habe! Weiter so.

  29. Metal_Reks_You

    I simply can't aggree with these lyrics to the fullest. This is just overexaggerated

  30. Dark Past

    the production is so disgusting.. sounds like every other over produced metal band.. get some original production scum!

  31. Hexenhammer

    Tracelock and Critter..Brainwashed Platforms

  32. KRAUT HAMMER

    Mediocre as fuck

  33. You Always Walk Alone

    It's funny: this is a song about Internet on the Internet-site :d

    Daeva23

    Well, the one place to reach internet addicts is the internet. I guess the producer of "The Prisoner" hated TV, but he had to create a TV show to spread his message.

  34. JJ BB

    lack of inspiration, poor song, disapointed.

  35. jegham aymen

    OOH, a non alcohol related song from tankard.....interesting loool

    Kamila Brzozowska

    There are always a few on every album. They're just not the singles.

  36. Roy Mertinez

    Boring...

  37. nico nyman

    just hear this and think "what they have done to gerre's voice"? music instead, pure heavy grinding tankard tone

  38. Daeva23

    Well, I have to go check out a memorial my sister created for my departed uncle on FaceBook. Not everything is trash on Social Media.

  39. devilsdinerclub

    One Foot In The Grave! Only 2 months left :-)

  40. GonzA ThrasheR

    Aguante Tankard 🍺

  41. Crikey Crikeys

    Tracelock and Critter... lol nice workaround...

  42. Torstein Hamnvik

  43. azavor

    Пива, походу, не завезли. Мужики не в духе.

    Acid Spit

    Тоже так подумал) Какая-то вымученная песня

  44. MrDistillation

    cooking versus sex!

  45. brandon

    F O D A

  46. 665 Demon Dog

    beauty tips *cough, cough* Simone Simmons

    since she works in the same label she should watch this

    Daeva23

    Also the girl from "Battlebeast" has a video on beauty tips, and a Public Service Announcement of the evils of Social Media.

  47. Goryl Mahcin

    Edith Erazo I don't drink beer

    Jaizz J. Z.

    Bambi Pardis it's a right song Me neither 'cause I am not adult yet

  57. thegui999

    It's supposed to be this cringy?

    Underintact134

    It's meant to be true and it is

  58. Andrea Vallacchi

    Strong song and clever lyrics, worth a like!

  59. Hannes Olivier

    Nuclear blast rulez \m/

  60. Kevin Student

    I had to watch it to see where the cooking versus sex lyric in a metal song would go. Ended up being quite a bit less weird than I anticipated!

  61. mark hustwick

  62. Jesus Christ

    WHERE'S THE BEER!!?!

    Cooking versus sex.

  68. Ian fuller

    TANKARD!!!!

  69. BudzzLightYear

    #FuckingGold this shit is fucking lyrically brilliant!!!

  70. chroscielewski

    Quite nice lyrics but main riff is so ...amateur and souless.

  71. Riccardo Quarrel

    The lyrics describe perfectly the actual situation. We live in a fuckin' arena, the arena of true lies. Great job Tankard, this is really serious stuff.

  72. THEDREAMASTER

    Great song and lyrics \m/

  73. gutorov362

    Tankard, go back to caves

  74. Aggelos Dimos

    NICE SONG NICE VIDEOCLIP NICE BAND NICE LYRICS NICE NICE NICE! <3 \m/

  75. Metal Messiah

    Beauty tips and cats, cooking versus. sex XD

  76. 665 Demon Dog

    love it the lyrics the instruments all of it horns up for Tankard

  77. Michél Meintzer

    I like that. Good lyrics...very dated to this ugly period of mankind.

    Metal_Reks_You

    Michél Meintzer Dude. Think about where you watch this video

  78. Dead.Skin.Mask

    Musically it's great but lyrically it's quite clumsy. Not their finest moment.

  79. Nuri YILMAZ

    i like it
    it is rare to see "proudly presents"

    MrDistillation

    Uriah we still haven't heard a reason why you don't like them. I'm really curious to know because I don't know why people would be so against them. most of us don't pay attention to label, just the bands we like. so what makes them a shit label?

    Nuri YILMAZ

    i listen most of my music with ipad mini and average headphones
    there is nothing disturbed me, bands are awesome and nuclear blast has really good quality...
    why this hate?

    Daeva23

    All the bands of Nuclear Blast have been of the highest quality, whether or not I liked their music. Bands I would never have heard are brought to me. What have they done wrong. You won't answer that.

    MrDistillation

    we get no answer, makes you wander if those comments come from legit "listeners"

  80. Witchripper TV

    Y y las cervezas ? donde están las cervezas ?

  81. Coffindrop

    i´m a Tankard Fan since 30 years, but this is boring. I´m Very disappointed.

    Christian McGuire

    Really? I'm only okay with Tankard and I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

    Metalhead Kangaroo

    Christian McGuire I guess tankard kinda wanted to do something original and show what social media has done to our modern day society

    Tyrone Peisker

    It sounds like Hard Rock, but I love it!

    Bertram Fistehauson

    I think Gerre said this was the most melodic track on the album. Goood anyway

  82. Vermillion

    Musically certainly interesting and all, but man these lyrics remind me of destructions second to none, which isn't a good thing.
    Imo it's much better and less cheesy to not deliver such messages so directly bute rather in a more subliminal way.

    665 Demon Dog

    no youre wrong

  83. Jack of all Trades

    disappointed

  84. L. Lucas Drum

    \m/
    foda de fuder fudendo

  85. Fraser Dawson

    good shit never disappoint old school thrash alcohol is a metal

  86. Metalhertz, la webradio metal

    Tankard turned into modern Kreator, sounds nice!

    Where_the_wild_winds_blow

    no they didn't at all! they sound different, and that's all the better.

  87. C Moo

    this isbfucking trash

  88. Sr Mota
