Track Name: End of tether
A tidy desk but there’s still a riot inside your head
A basic shape fits better in a mold when hammered deep into it

Something wicked coming your way
Cogs that will grind unique away

Like sisyphus stone roller and ouroborus lasts forever
your struggling effort’s blinding like the sun, they steal heat, leave you burning

You feel every tooth of the cogs
that are grinding you down at work

Don’t go quietly into that night
just rage against the dying of the light

just fight every tooth of the cogs
that try to grind you down at work

don’t go quietly into that night
just rage against the death of light
Track Name: Breeders
All men are equal but some are more equal than us
kept in place by never feeling sure who you can trust

urged away
every day
but you’ll never be leaving now
yeah you’ll never be leaving

nine to five
‘til you die
but you’re better off stealing now
yeah you’re better off stealing

As they keep throwing our weight around their crooked rules
make us despise each other and worship our tools

You can go back but
never come back home

They’ve made
us all impotent
and toothless
and so far your only plan
is to
breed and get more guns
breed and get more guns

Their greatest trick is to keep us locked away trapped in our heads
A sly dig, a jab and we’ll stay caged until dead

Desperate cries
the word was lies
but you better believe it now
yeah you’ll never believe it

Still they say (who can know the value of gold in decay)
heed our way (who can measure the sum of all life in this way)
but that’s not what we’re needing now
yeah it’s not what we’re needing
Track Name: Märkvärdig
Swedish lyrics

Insikt i
att vi blir det
vi svor vi aldrig skulle bli
Det skal som
blev kvar när hågen läckt ur
fylls med cynism

i ständig

Frihet långt där bortom rädslan
De håller oss om ryggen
med knivarna redo och längtan i blick
Vi söker efter svar och längtan är evig
på någon form av lugn och ro
för dem som blivit kvar

Än en kull av vilda barn
har till slut lånat sig tam

Englsih translation (approximate)

A realization that
we’re becoming that
which we swore we’d never be
The shell that
remained when all vigor drained out
fills up with cynicism

on constant

Freedom far beyond the fear
They have our back
with knives at the ready and hungry eyes
We seek the answers and yearn eternally
for some kind of peace
for those who remain.

One more litter of wild children
have finally indebted themselves tame
