The Uninvited Where life stays, always the same Where days stuck in the mud Νo light to shine through A place with no windows or exits The uninvited of the world A place no one calls by name A place, where everyone forgets As they never existed Where everyone carries their chains Where lives stuck in the mud No light to shine through Where life has always a bad taste The neglected of the world The unpersons of the world The uninvited of the world A monument to oblivion The uninvited of the world
End Of Days 02:22
End of days We don't seem to get the problem World turns to a nightmare There won't be a day after Just don't say ‘I didn't know’ We are living in denial It's not far away The end of days, the end of days Soon there will be a day When the sky will turn to shadows Consuming, destroying, polluting and killing Just don’t say ‘I didn't know’ Nothing changed, still the same Maybe it’s time to take the blame Nothing changed, still the same That we couldn't see the end of days
Shallow Grave Smoke, blood and darkness all around you You try to breath in the open air Your life is an endless graveyard Your life is like a shallow grave You had to stand before the gallows But now it’s time to say ‘I can’t take it anymore’ They’ve got you lined up and walled off You've got to settle for nothing less
Witch Hunt 03:20
Witch Hunt Blinded masses with burning eyes, bearing torches Screaming voices from the deepest past Wild packs calling for extermination Of all those, who never fit at their world Mob mentality Carefully manipulated all those years by the ruling class Death, incarceration It’s mass hysteria Pain, exile It’s paranoia Witch hunt Mob mentality
A Distant Echo What can you do, when the gap is widening? Day by day We are losing touch Still carrying those moments Getting lost into your stare But the words got empty And the miles got the best of us So far away Another city, another life Your voice is haunting me A distant echo And I'm dancing away On every last goodbye A million Sundays Running through my veins The night illusions Now I leave behind As the dawn rises I dive into a new dream A distant echo Or is it a new dream?
Under The Gun This constant stress and anxiety Has taken the last of me Dealing with ignorant people It keeps exhausting me I've reached my boiling point I’m totally drained I can't keep doing this I have to get away Waiting for my turning point Trying to make sense I push myself to the edge Μy eyes are watching through the end I got nothing left to prove I'm always under the gun Under the gun Waiting for my turning point Trying to stay on my way Where life's no fun, When we are on the run, When life's no fun Keeping myself under the gun
Traffic 03:37
7. Traffic 6 pm, stuck in the traffic, trouble at work You're pissed off and angry Some clash on the east, the sports are coming The west is threatening, tension is rising No, it’s not the time, it was stressful today Need to clear your mind Change the program, drive and drive Need some gas, you're shocked by the price Cities on fire, the skies are burning And all you do is curse, about the fuel price Bombs are falling, people are dying It’s just a white noise for another mile 6.30 at a red light, a scared man, is asking for money You feel bored, you throw him a coin The stereo's loud, you turn on the engine
8. The City of Ruins All those I won’t forget The City of Ruins All at once All those I won’t forget Those I'll never leave behind All at once The sound of my broken voice The silence after the noise Careless, fearless, ready to burn it all All the things I never wanted All the moments I’ve forgotten Now, they don't seem to leave my side All at once Those I won’t forget The neighborhood I never left Now, they don’t seem to leave my side All the things I never wanted All these moments I’ve forgotten
