Zwirbelepsia 07:00
ZWIRBELEPSIA 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

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

Daedalus 08:05
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

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

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

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?

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

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
