I watch your life just passing by
Grey and meaningless
Now look straight into my eyes
And tell me, is it thoughtlessness?

You don´t seem to realize
Or recognize your chains
Daily meetings, taxes paid
You got your car you´re satisfied.

You´re just a little gear in the system
And if you pass away, so what?
You’re replaced and thrown away
To be forgotten

I wish you could be critical
For you don´t question things
Indifference is your attitude
And you don´t care about friends

Recurring same dull misty days
Same words spoken, same things done
And everytime it seems you turn
You start again in this endless run

You're used…

Fresh Progressive Metal/Rock from Germany in an exciting mixture:
Sometimes very heavy and powerful, sometimes rather calm, thoughtful and dreamy - always innovative and full of emotions, honesty and affecting melancholy.
All this embedded in a frame of progressive and virtuosic instrumental parts with lots of groove meeting catchy vocals between introverted sensibilty and extroverted aggression.
