Track Name: Weight Of The World
Too much sorrow on your mind
Life keeps dragging you down
Yet you always try so hard

I SEE YOU GETTING CRUSHED
BY THE WEIGHT ON YOUR SHOULDERS
YOU KEEP CARRYING
YOUR HEAVY BURDEN

A heavy soul with a restless mind
Always going the extra mile
Hope you know you’re not alone

I see the life, slowly fading out of you
Don’t try to carry the weight of the world
I hate to see, see you fade away
Don’t try to carry the weight of the world

THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD

-----------------------------------------------

This one’s for those people that always try their hardest, those who are always there for others, but for one way or another keep on struggling with their own life.
Track Name: Third Wave
DROWN IN THIS WAVE
FOLLOWING THE FLOCK

Oh don’t think it’s over yet
Just look around and see the breeding ground
Unified by rules, grown out of control
Riding with the wave now, trying to fit in

We thought we learned
But nothing changed

You’re feeling safe in a crowd
Afraid to be left out, to be alone
Out with your freedom, forced into a mold
You’d never thought you’d end up amongst the flock

DON’T THINK YOU’RE DIFFERENT

DON’T THINK YOU’RE DIFFERENT
WE ALL FOLLOW THE FLOCK

---------------------------------------------------------

This was written after seeing the movie “Die Welle” (or maybe you have seen “The Wave“?). For those of you who don’t (I do recommend it though), it’s about an experiment done by a teacher and his class called “Third Wave“. Whether it really happened or not is not that relevant, it’s the thought that counts. People are so easy to manipulate, we’ve seen that in WO II, but we cannot think that’s behind us now. We haven’t learnt. In the Netherlands at this moment for instance the right wing is getting bigger and bigger, with idiotic proposals that bare a close resemblance in ideology to the ones that brought so much pain and misery upon us in the 40′s… People don’t think, they just follow the loudest voice, the biggest group. The power of a group, of a mass can be quite dangerous.
Track Name: Fit The Mold
Will we see what we’ve become
When the mirrors re-appear
We’re all on the outside
Forgetting to look in

WILL I SINK OR SWIM?
WILL I FIT THE MOLD?

Monkey see and monkey do
Afraid to be cast out
Absorb the billboard lies
Slogans for the weak
Walking contradictions
All dressing the part
A million faces
All melting into one

We’re all part of the jury
Convicting every day
We’re all judges
Trying to mold the world
We try to fit in
Everybody wants to swim

We’re no exception

WE’RE ALL PART OF THE JURY
You’re no exception
TRYING TO MOLD THE WORLD
I’m no exception
WE’RE NO EXCEPTION

-------------------------------------------------------

This is about you and me. About the world we live in. We all want to be a part of it, we all want to swim. No matter what people are saying, in the end we all want to be accepted. So we all fall for the same slogans, we all dress the part and we all judge each other in the blink of an eye. We all want to be different, yet we’re all the same. Just be aware of that, you and I, we’re no exception.
Track Name: Burning
OUR WORLD IS BURNING
WE’VE BEEN BLIND FOR TOO LONG
OUR GREED IS RISING
WE’RE MARCHING TO THEIR BEAT

They kept telling you it’s alright
No need to worry now
Yet when the smoke disappeared
Those vultures were long gone

We chose to ignore all the signs that we´ve seen
And now we’ll have to pay

Where do we go now?
We swallowed all their lies
Will we wake up?
There’s no more turning back
And all we want is more
We keep wanting more

---------------------------------------------------

It’s mainly about the financial state the world is in at the moment. We kept wanting the sky, getting careless in the process. Trusting every word of those vultures, promising us the world. We’ll have to pay. We’ll have to wake up and rebuild.
