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

Track Name: Invading Desire
Oh no, don't let it end
A little bit more
I know I want it
I was never so sure
The dream is fading
Let me put it back together

For you
I can ignore
Where this road will end
I will see the pleasures
I will find my mind
On the other side

I will fade away with you
Time is on our side

Explore the fifth direction
Every possible connection
But sometimes a dream
Does not want to be dreamed
To the end
And it doesn't need to be
It's part of you

Tears shine in your eyes
The ties of duality
What if you could
Try more than just fly
Anywhere your eyes can see?

In time, off of the line
No ties of reality
What if you could
Find more of the kind
That you want to see in me?

Come to me, don't turn around
You'll see you are meant to be mine
Feed me now, obey the
Sound of curiosity
You will see I am the next in line

I will invade your dream
I will become your fantasy
I will close your eyes
As I closed mine
Let my instincts guide you

Well in time off of the line
You’ll be tied to me
I know you want to be part of me
You are mine
One of a kind
You’ll be stronger, faster, better
And most of all inside of me

Invade your dreams
Invade your beliefs
Evade her scheme
Evade your misery

When your thoughts run in circles
And you’re down
There’s no easy way
Deja vu blocked your sanity
Once more
You’re lured away
When your greed leads you to her
You’ll forget
What is lying close to you
So close, you need more
You need change
You need passion
You want what is out of range

I will fulfil your dreams
I will be part of your fantasy
I will close my eyes
I'll let my curiosity guide me
Track Name: Do Without It
I fight you, I make you kneel
And I rip out your heart
Just for saying
You can do without it

Dare you

Dare you cut my booze
When there wine stains all over you
Dare you point at me
When you scared to speak for yourself
Dare you scream I'm late
While you make everyone wait
Everyone wait
I'm scared to be afraid

I fight you, I make you kneel
And I rip out your heart
Just for saying
You can do without it

You'd better stop drinking
Unless you wanna die
And then it's hard to point at people
And your kids won't wait but cry
An eye for an eye
And you are not worth the trouble, motherfucker
Don't deny
You better stop cheating
Because meanwhile your girl is with me
You'd better start using a condom motherfucker
I am in an
Incredibly dangerous situation
An incredibly dangerous situation
No time to follow my inspiration

I fight you, I make you kneel
And I rip out your heart
Just for saying
You can do without it
Track Name: Parasite
From above my shoulder,
Whispering into my ear
And saying how to act,
How to move and what to fear.

From above my shoulder
Laughing at me
Spitting in my face
As a sign for my futility
To show me my worthlessness

I can feel it, your weight on my back
I can bear it, your hands around my neck
I can hear your voice claiming my death
Your former slave will take your breath

From above my shoulder
Commanding what to do
Taking that for granted
But I'm done with you

Never again
I will suffer from your sway
Perfidious parasite
That was controlling my feet
That made me walk in that way
That was disturbing my greed
That made me think in that way
Never again, never again
Will I suffer from your sway

I can feel it, your weight on my back
I can bear it, your hands around my neck
I can hear your voice claiming my death
Your former slave will take your breath

Controlling my feet
Disturbing my greed
I think I'm on that way
And I won't suffer from your sway
Track Name: Fox
This fox needs you to stay awake
I've got this unknown feeling
That I can't take it anymore
This fox needs you to go away
This fox needs you

Barely beating heart
A breath taking wind is in the air
And down at the dirt
With a broken paw in the grave
This became as miserable
As former days

Stumbling through unpleasant dark
Footprints washed out in the steady rain
Stone-blind and I’m not able to see
Blinded with this fear
Of never getting back to you again
Again, never getting back to you again

This fox needs you to stay awake
I've got this unknown feeling
That I can't take it anymore
This fox needs you to go away
There's a sense of an everlasting memory
That's why I won't survive this day

I don't accept this
I have been watching you night for night
Just to feel you for one more day
I've been heading back to you again
And I've been missing you so
I'm heading back to you again

This fox needs you to stay awake
I've got this unknown feeling
That I can't take it anymore
This fox needs you to go away
There's a sense of an everlasting memory

I'll be on the brink of denying the fact
That you won't miss it every day
So please rely on me
I will be definitely closer
Than you ever want me to be
So look out for me

This fox needs you to stay awake
I've got this unknown feeling
That I can't take it anymore
This fox needs you to go away
There's a sense of an everlasting memory
Track Name: The Inner Enemy Pt. 1
Never known, never seen
This thing is hiding inside
I’ve gone too far
Life is floating away
It will take one more breath
To give up, never cared about this
And now, he’s here
The enemy’s inside my mind

Something is hiding inside
Down, beneath the inner dream
However, the door is open wide
Connecting, I hear the scream

Word by word and day by day
The monsters burn through my disgrace
When it comes it will just say
Dear you, I will crush your fucking face

Never known, never seen
This thing is hiding inside
I’ve gone too far
Life is floating away
It will take one more breath
To give up never cared about this
And now, he’s here
The enemy’s inside my mind

You will lose when I come

I never wanted this shit
I cannot deny
I cannot refuse
Incoming dreams that send me a sign
Out through the dark

Never known, never seen
This thing is hiding inside
I’ve gone too far
Life is floating away
It will take one more breath
To give up never cared about this
And now, he’s here
The enemy’s inside my mind

If you fall down
You will get what you deserve
And I will remember
Your pain-filled, blood-shot eyes
I’ll be there, yeah I’ll be there
But I’m not alone
The devil is following you home
Track Name: The Inner Enemy Pt. 2
No more questions, no more excuses
Don’t try to engage me
Don’t try to escape from me
When I finally got you
You will be burned
This is no dream
You’ll never learn

I’m the god of all evil
I am the fucking 666
You should run if you’re in my way
I’m the damage that cannot be fixed
You’ve gone too far to deny your enemy

I’ll appear during night
And then there’ll be no end in sight
Hardly will you see my bad-ass smile

I’m the god of all evil
I am the fucking 666
You should run if you’re in my way
I’m the damage that cannot be fixed
You’ve gone too far to deny your enemy

Never known never seen
The inner enemy

Born in an infinite world
Slipped through the haze
Into the night
Born in an infinite world
Let us start the fight

Now that you’ve given up
The only thing that you have done right
Is losing yourself in the depths
Resigning the fight
Track Name: Pathfinder (Bonustrack)
Too late at night
It's raining outside
The bend is tight
I try to concentrate
I lose my sight
The recent fog won't bate

My thoughts are screaming
My hands are too numb
Never will you get where you want
We always haunt, we always taunt
Never will you get where you want

The curse of every path leads anger and wrath
If you reduce your acceleration,
Assign your destination
How could I find my way?
Without any memory
A pathfinder leads me out of this misery

Frightened I ask
Will you take me to my destiny?
Please tell me that I'm right
Or at least that I'm not wrong
Hell and high water around
Your will seems to be bound
Inner struggle fortifies
And the outside wants to chastise

I begin to see clear
And the road starts to appear

Never will you get where you want
We always haunt, we always taunt
Never will you get where you want

The curse of every path leads anger and wrath
If you reduce your acceleration,
Assign your destination
How could I find my way?
Without any memory
A pathfinder leads me out of this
