I have to keep the silence 'cause I don't know what I might say.
So I'll conceal this violence, and try to find another way.

I cannot face the human race,
the way it moves along ignoring what's not right,
Believing lies, ignoring cries,
It lives in ignorance with eyes shut tight.


To feel alive, I climb inside the world I dream about whenever I'm in need.
I know it's wrong to spend that long somewhere that I know I'm never meant to be.

I'm overwhelmed by how the world's messed up,
So powerless but I can't keep hiding.



Addictive song. Excellent work. Really liked the bass-riff. Sounded like it was recorded live though. Would love to hear it studio-finished.

Extremely catchy song! Love Love LOVE the bass line, and guitar solo was cool. A bit of a spy-movie feel musically. I wanted to listen to it over and over, which is a really good sign.

Well done guys, reminds me a little of squeeze.
