I – monuments of control

music by Kuorikoski
lyrics by Kanniainen / Eräjoki
arranged by DBO

they stand tall as they stand hated
they stand unbetrayed
they stand above all to weave
the sight over all who serve
nation under a lens
every dawn more depressive

rusty routines to wind the
mill of elitistic progression
profiteers on thrones of
propagandic supremacy

not men but children
chained and locked

riots rise paying heed for their price
silenced, fenced, situation builds tense
as the tension escalates
the hand that we used to obey
shalt not be there today

not men but children
chained and locked

within a mind and failed to emancipate
we sleep to wake up to another day

 

II – reborn

music & lyrics by Kanniainen

like threads and pieces
of a jacket old and worn-out
solidness it’s all about

still long for completeness
drawn together for a reason

once torn
yet wait to be reborn

it is in your dna
as a sea of life holds a bay
it is all within our reach
seen from this beautiful beach

we watch the armageddon
we see the monarchs begging

these monuments are brought down
we see the monarchs begging

once torn
yet wait to be reborn

 

III – an order depleted

music by Kanniainen / Kuorikoski
lyrics by Kanniainen / Eräjoki
arranged by DBO

as solidarity lies dormant
tension casts ablaze
it’s release sets fire to these
temples of oppression
an order depleted

bigots with bibles and
merits of false martyrs
and obedience finds its
ways into idle brains

dull patience now depleted
this system rots
thrones are teared apart
anarchy yields to none
all is laid to waste
