the restrained EP – lyrics

1. As I Breathe Water

modern life is based on efficiency.
to survive depends on the place to be.
jump on the boat agree with the deal.
this book is written but the last page is clear.

increase the pressure it’s all matter of the time it takes.
to pull me on the ground with nothing left but scars and aches
my lungs they pant for air and nothing seems to ease the pain.
i’m out of gas on the brink of going insane.

as i breathe water
embraced by callousness
it’s hard to repress
my own collapse

9 to 5 faceless enemy.
make or break dead end misery.
Led by the hand of fate.
set in concrete silent defeat.

how can i feel free
while trapped by humility
how can i feel free
while trapped by humility

as i breathe water
held down by callousness
it’s hard to repress
my own collapse

well,
take you some time as i did
and think about your role to fit
into this place our society called
do you go sad or are you proud of

spending life in a cage that shrinks
with a ball and chain tight by your skin
with common destiny we’re going down
are we made of stone?

2. Pachyderm

take a
look how i keep my own spirit up high
sure i’ll keep on moving
keep moving with a strength inside
not to break by pride
i turn a blind eye.

what is left here
when the damage is done
what is left
when all hope is gone

I’ll suffer anymore!

i hold it true. all my life.
i’ll never miss or fear the day that we collide
keep it up!
i use my skin like a mirror
to reflect all the shit you throw into my face
dermal encased.

you can’t hurt my inside
i swear i built up my wall just in time.

all my life.
i’ll never miss or fear the day that we collide
keep it up!
i use my skin like a mirror
to reflect all the shit you throw into my face
dermal encased.

you can’t hurt my inside
reignite my inner fire
i swear i built up my wall just in time.
this ladder is way too high for you to climb.

3. Crowns & Hypocrites

have you ever thought about the fiction
of your satisfaction – an illusion
of wealth and all the things you’ve ever
dreamed of but gone after a while
just as long as – as the stocks last
one more step into the ark

will you ever learn
that’s my concern
bring it home to you
it’s your matter too

the reflective glasses on your nose
and your foolish way to pose
to proud to be-part
you push yourself forward
and high above

have you ever shown an ounce of respect
were you ever content – You discontent
When will you finally end the
disconnected live that you live
disconnected – from humanity
and you’ll spend your time in hell

so why the fuck
do you try to suppress
that your heart is stuck
on your success

the reflective glasses on your nose
and your foolish way to pose
unable to be-part
you lift yourself up

without a crown

4. Unrestrained I.

am i unrestrained?

no more
living
restrained
on tight leash
