about

Syntension Jena, Germany

Syntension is a metal band with a twist. If your story is extra-ordinary, your music should be. If something awkward happens, why put it in a neat regular song structure? Syntension set out to avoid rock clichés, knock people out of their music listening routine and make them think again. There is a time for easy-listening, and there is a time for what-the-fuck-was-that?! This is Progressive Metal ... more

Repetition
What was done before
Blurrs your vision
No one's out for more

Reaching fading
Condescending to
Teach me playing
Show me how to live

Reaching for your eyes
I see through your eyes
and it makes me sick

I see through your eyes
and it sickens me
I can't breath in this uniformity
But they force me
To adhere to this
Yet I love all about
This same old dry and shallow game
We're stuck
All we can do is play

Ignorance is bliss

As I understand more
You can see the scars
Open wounds made of concrete
In their cold precision
I see a mirror image

As I'm falling fading
What I know is true
When you teach me swaying
One more x like you

Reaching through your eyes
They see through your eyes
All you're feeding them
Is the same sh...

They see through your eyes
And you're feeding them
With your irresponsability
Inability to find beauty
We are stuck and define the same old
Dry and boring game
But we play
All we can do is play

Let's see through their eyes
and forget it all
Let us breethe in their idiosyncracy
For ourselves we define beauty
It is not all about
The same old dry and boring game
Let us play

Let's go astray
Track Name: In Front Of My Eyes
IN FRONT OF MY EYES


I've been told for too many years
They've controlled what's wrong or right
Slightly heaven sends me a sign
And time passes by in front of my eyes

Lonesome and forgotten
A message in my mind
It's clear to see
It's clear to see
You will be ripped out of my life
They say the more layers of disappointment
The stronger you became
But sad to say
your heart will only become colder

Scared deathly pale
The head in the noose
You won't you cannot
Catch another breath
Don't get moving!

Obey capitulate
In front of this nightmare of pain
A light in the night a flash in your eyes
Leads you out of this open-ended dream
I've been told for too many years
They've controlled what's wrong or right
Slightly heaven sends me a sign
And time passes by in front of my eyes

While you're awaiting the end
A face deformed by your own hand
Turns into a beast
Attracts the attention
Of disease

Obey capitulate
In front of this nightmare of pain
A light in the night a flash in your eyes
Leads you out of this open-ended dream
I've been told for too many years
They've controlled what's wrong or right
Slightly heaven sends me a sign
And time passes by in front of my eyes

In front of my eyes
Track Name: Daedalus
DAEDALUS


My mind seems to be separated
Split in a thousand pieces
Half is left
Half is gone
And how could I believe
That he could have reached
Close to the sun
To the sun

I must not allow this to happen
Gliding away no wave goodbye
With the time the boy began to soar
Towards to the blazing sun
You tear down what I become

He's too close to the sun
Finds himself along the run
An act of will again
Time to be restored

He's too close to the sun
Finds himself along the run
My dear the only one
Who was born to be ignored

The time has come to send him on his way

In the long view I cannot stay

In a silent night he waits
A thousand thoughts
Become his life
The meaning still remains
While he struggles to survive

He’s shivering and he’s screaming
The blazing sun is out to call
The fool will stay a fool
And the king will fall

Sure, he will mess up simply said
The tragedy is going to take its place
I can't stand those lethargic ways
“Oh, am I just moaning to myself?”
While we’re on it
Face to face
I’ll take the crown
And the king will fall
The fool will stay a fool
And the king will fall
He will fall

At night
I cried a thousand times
Abandoning humankind
You will take my boy from me
Take this prophecy

He's too close to the sun
Finds himself along the run
An act of will again
Time to be restored

He's too close to the sun
Finds himself along the run
My dear the only one
Who was born to be ignored

That realm of independence
Lies ahead
No more tears to shed

You risk all
Consequences
Rising high
You have to continue your story of life

That realm of independence
Believe me it lies ahead
And there is no tear to shed

At night
I cried a thousand times

Abandoning humankind
You will take my boy from me

In all those nights

I cried a thousand times

Abandoning the humankind
Its prophecy

He is too close to the sun
Finds himself along the run
My dear the only one
Track Name: Outside Thrill
OUTSIDE THRILL


I wake up
I find myself in this place
This cave that's been my home
For as long as I can think
Oh, four walls staring at me
Like I am staring at them
My only hope has always been that door
Oh the door laughs at me for being here

I tried so many times
The lock will not open

I wake up
And the walls seem closer
My whole body knows
That I should not be here
The door grins
Oh the door
It grins because it knows what's outside
I long for the day, the lock opens

I tried so many times
The lock will not open

I long for the outside thrill
No fear can outplay my will
And all I have ever been is a prisoner
I'm stuck between time and space
Nondimensional Maze

I wake up
I find myself surrounded by a breeze
Unusual lights through a crack in the door
I feel the blood in my veins seething
Is this the moment I have waited for my whole life?
I hesitate and I can't control my feet

In an impulse I rush forward
Freedom is just a moment away
My hand strikes
I slam the door

I long for the outside thrill
No fear can outplay my will
And all I have ever been is a prisoner
I'm stuck between time and place

I longed for the day
My fear outplayed my will
A Slave to this cave
And all I will ever be is a prisoner
Track Name: Silence And Innocence
SILENCE AND INNOCENCE


Fear
Pain

Another vision takes position
One more reflection crawls into the night
Great ambition is my confession
Will a redemption repay any fight?

Fear
Pain
A trap
Lust
The end
Greed

This aggression is my possession
My recreation my dreams absorb my fear
Suffocation affiliation
Will a step forward redeem me from this fight?
No progression no regression
My body's trapped and I have lost my mind

Nowhere to hide
We turn this around
Again and again

I am far away from home
I don't know where I belong
Between silence and innocence I swear
I won't come home

I had to fear the night
But this fly is still alright
And I believe my soul is left behind
But I should let you die

And that's why there's
Nowhere to hide
I turn this around
Again and again

I am so far away from home
I don't know where I belong
Between silence and innocence I swear
I won't come home

He won't come home
Where all his anger will
Sooner or later belong

You’re far from home and alone
Track Name: Trapped In Freedom
TRAPPED IN FREEDOM


Far away from you
Maybe it's time for me to go
Never have I been so close and got away
I can't find you

Far away from home
I used to know where I belong
I gave up silence and innocence
I fear I can't find you

We won't come home

No
Awaking (again)
Proclaiming (once more)
My independence
Has been failing
Can you hear the echo?
Can you hear?
Can you hear the echo of curiosity?
Track Name: Five Days Left
FIVE DAYS LEFT


Where's your light
Where's your sound

Distant lights in the sky
They perforate liberate
See me
Hear
Smell me
Feel
Taste me
Blinded by apathy
Undecided but so patiently

I can't catch your light
With my own hands
I would rather die than to deny
So sorry to say
But you kept me this way
So close but so far
Let me burst the cage
Let me come of age
The journey begins
Five days left

Seductive symphonies
That no one can resist
Fill the blackened emptiness
Invading melodies
Resonate
A cry of distress

I can't hear your melody
As far as you are
And I think I'll lose my sanity
So hard to believe
You let me achieve
Something so close but so far
This profanity
Keeps me off of track
To hell and back
Five days left

I fixed my eyes on you
Why can't I let you go?
Smells like forever
Sounds like I never
Get rid of the pain
And I live through you

Well I feel so close to you
I used to be alone
I feel saved
I feel complete
and I'll get rid of the pain
And I should not live through you

This isn't happening
You have five days left
One two three four five days left
One two three four five

Sweet scents waft to my nostrils
But I still can't reach it though
Pure nature’s apostles
Feeding on pitiful hopes

My heart still will be open
As the smoke turns my sight black
Still your friend but soon your enemy

I can't wait here anymore
It's been far too long
My insanity keeps me away
And I can taste your blood
While your body starts to rot

Insanity

I can catch your light
I can hear your melody
I can smell how it must be next to you
Inhale the dust enjoy the symphony
Inhale everything of it
We will be bound until the end
Five days left
