In KOMPRESSOR's version, the lyrics open with: KOMPRESSOR crushing American people KOMPRESSOR driving cars into stores KOMPRESSOR crushing all of Manhattan KOMPRESSOR flying plane into building mp3 Eerily, the song was recorded before the September 11, 2001 attacks in which terrorists flew planes into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan. After the attack, KOMPRESSOR replaced those two lines of the song in the web-released video, splicing in an old man playing "It's a Small World After All" on a piano.

While not explicitly stating all music production will cease, his statement on the matter indicates that he will no longer sell music, and he would be selling off his music equipment.
Additionally, the old KOMPRESSOR web site is replaced with a discography, yet other pages still exist on the server. Despite the apparent halt of Andreas K.'s production, KOMPRESSOR's LiveJournal hints at a past project that remains unknown to most, and proceeds to hint at a future project. Sometime in late 2008 the KompressorMusic.com website was redirected to another website run by Drew, Superpoop.
