Track 2 from the upcoming new album.

lyrics

Brought forth in pain
to settle in uncertain times

The clock starts ticking
between the mother's thighs

This is where the rope begins
no noose is yet to be seen

Rest assured, the knot is tight
and each and every neck will fit inside

It's the way of the world
This doom is certain

At the end of the line
This doom is mine

Lost from the start
this machine is failing

Life given through mother's milk
and still we are fading

This is where the rope begins
no noose is yet to be seen

Rest assured, the knot is tight
and each and every neck will fit inside

It's the way of the world
This doom is certain

At the end of the line
This doom is mine

Read the news, turn the pages
is this what you dreamed to be?

A part of this living nightmare?
A part of this machinery?

"I've never profited, never profited of public service, I've earned everything!"

"What does it mean?"

"You ain't seen nothing yet"

Strive for freedom, strive for power
reach for wealth and thirst for fame

Will it get you far?
Are you are proud of what you are?

Dreams of a prosperous future
all in due time

But the clock starts ticking
between the mother's thighs

It's the way of the world
This doom is certain

At the end of the line
This doom is mine

Adder's Fork Lower Austria, Austria

This project
has been created to channel my musical ideas, influenced by a wide array of great bands like Sisters of Mercy, Talk Talk, Joy Division, The Sound and classic gothic rock/metal classics.

What I’m trying to achieve is a satisfying combination of these unforgettable sounds with the more hard-hitting elements of heavy metal, creating my vision of the music that guided me through my life.
