Obey 03:19
What a system Walk all over us Ignorance is such a bliss For those who control Obey Resign, we resign ourselves to walk for the Party Walking away from the minority Don’t think Proceed Hide from ourselves the empathy Set our minds on idleness, not on reality It is a siren call Be aware Eveytime the Party comes out Preaching for one thing and then the opposite Sounds like there is no escape Obey Bowing Hit something Why don’t we strike ?
Inside 03:51
A broken door An empty home Let see the void Stripped down There are eyes that scrutinize your skin and your soul The perfect portrait of a glory fall If just a frame you share will fill you with joy The content inside is no longer yours Inside The blue black cold where we seem to hide Inside Fragments of life in plain sight Inside An aggravation of the state of mind
Autumn Flood 03:46
I stand back from the autumn flood Dark clouds hang over us Rain starts to fall it hurts As if we never try How it couldn’t be so nice ? Some say pain is worth the gain Some say you’d rather walk away Wait it out Something come in our way Wait it out There will be a brighter day Don’t let it burn Wait it out I stand back from the autumn flood Look away no one is great Don’t restrain and leave the pain Another thoughtful act You never seem to get the compromise
Anti Sex 02:59
A luminous sign and a weird hostess at the entrance says : « Come to say Hi » I don’t know where the hell I’m heading to She says : « don’t be so shy » There will be some pretty surprise for you And it seems so tense So I turn around (She says ) « Hey wait ! » I’m anti sex What if I’m anti sex ? I know why it isn’t right We get to close you and I Putting on an innocent look in the city In other words she says « I’m your fantasize, can’t you see? » So I scream myself off I ain’t nothing but a whore I’m anti sex What if I’m anti sex ? Getting too close Get into deep I burn my eyes watching you sleep Feeling so hot feeling so cold And I have to admit it this is a lost cause We fall We soar
Dive At Dawn 04:18
They all pretend everything is fine It’s dragging them out into the city Even when they are paralyzed They dive at dawn with white powder Stay awake not to sink into despair, unsatisfaction Deep wounds in the heart Craving for attention They sing along about their egos Lost souls on the dance floor Feel down in the dumps, down the bone all of the time Dance to forget Dance to deny those starring eyes They all pretend everything is fine It’s dragging them out into the city Even when they are paralyzed They dive at dawn with white powder Stay awake not to sink into despair, unsatisfaction Deep wounds in the heart Craving for attention Remove the stain of pure innocence They claim a sacred heart which has left a bitter taste They come undone
I made a mistake shaking your hand You stabbed me in the back while I was away I bleed out with your knife feeling no pain You took me for granted then threw it all away Nowhere to hide No one to tell the hideous betrayal you have signed there Compulsive liar, I never got a phone call waiting for a sign that we’ll keep moving on Be ready to learn Be ready to face aftermath Someday you will pay ! Heavy as heartbreak Nothing but a mistake You break the bond of trust You did nothing but give false hope Are you ashamed of what you’ve done ? You leave no stone unturned !
Attila 02:25
We can only watch We can only doubt And nothing ease the pain above our eyes Attila One reason Attila One reason Distress Resist Feel that we’re repressed Desist And nothing will change Distress Injustice unjustified
Interest 03:18
They sold a solid treason Hidden attractive silhouette Compulsive shopping disorder Feeding the GAFA’s order Interest White collars institution Interest The calling of globalisation Excess We consume in the short term Distracted A good deal we safely trust Hey come along it’s Black Friday ! Don’t miss out on our biggest sale This growing machine hypnotized on a massive scale When it’s running out we suffocate Can’t wait for the new trend In a deafening silence we betray our true selves Interest White collars institution Interest The calling of globalisation
Talk Now ! 02:40
I can always talk sincerely I can always act truthfully Time is moving on Even though that talk is shitty This awkward silence drive us crazy Time is moving on And nothing’s going on We’re taking our time Let it all out A kind of drama We drown our sorrows in a bottle of cheap wine We get out of line Hide your inner thoughts Since I reclaim your heart It’s coming down the track We know it ! I let out a sigh to give a little sign about the absurd situation A common ground is not that easy Talk Now ! What’s going on ?
Exit Door 01:51
We’re going die matter of time We try so hard to stay aside what concretely define what we really are Stay out of sight Elders forsaken seclusion strengthened In transe we crush towards the exit door Anytime, anywhere, anyone, any day Everytime, everywhere We’re just getting by We hang on as we can Pretend we never die We’re all in denial We’re just getting by
Another way to express the sense of loneliness Another way to say Journey has come to an end Now we’re ready to go home In other words we ask : is it serious? One time, one way, it is cold ! Another state of mind is it illusional ? One foot in the grave, it is done ! Once tasted life we get bored Empire of dust untold Dance, dance, dance, dance now ! Dance, dance, dance, dance on the beat of the unknown In the sun, in the rain where we hide In the end of the trail we realize that is all gone
