Francois Laubscher This is such a rad band with a raw, powerful sound. All the tracks on this album are great. My favourites would definitely be Ender and Done. Favorite track: Done.

Track Name: Ender
I used to come here to feel safe
It's been taken from me
My inheritance taken away and given to waste
Replaced by an empty space and a fucking bitter taste
Born here, but a foreign tongue tells me,
I don't belong here,
My family removed
Washed out and washed up,
On the outskirts
I feel the biting cold from both sides
Yet you wonder why (I'm so bitter)
Hope fades away to never reappear
Left at the city gates
Like a leper
Track Name: Backslider
You say that they’re going to hell, because what they believe is wrong
Do what you will because you’re saved by grace
Nothing really matters
Except for the human race
Maybe I’m wrong, but I had to choose
I’m done with being guilt-ridden, fear driven, born to lose
Surround me with your disappointment
Treat me like a sheep who’s been led astray
Tell me how I’ve let you down
By this living life
My own way
Track Name: Peasant
I can’t pay these taxes, they’re more than I have to live
Defeated by stress, it brings no rest
Death weighing down upon my chest

What will save my ass?
What will save your ass?
Track Name: Done
Down out of luck
Not giving a fuck
We're pushing closer to the edge and we all know it's a drop
It's like we're already done
And we've got nothing to lose
It's like we're already gone
A careless nation of sleeping fools

Always tied by the ropes of the past
I wonder how we've even made it this far

Are we too late or were we doomed from start?
We're pushing closer to the edge and we all know it's a drop

It's you, it's me, it's all of us
And still the spiral turns

It doesn't matter what anyone says
The damage is done
We're already done

It doesn't matter what anyone says
We're already done
Track Name: Dead Hand
In a world where whats wrong is right,
We have lost all the will to love
I reach out into the ether to climb out,
But what's pulled back is a cold, dead hand

All the world is ablaze
With the flame of distrust

This poison spreads all day,
Through all I see, in every way

Is it too late for me to change my ways?
Is it too late for me?

In a world where what's wrong is right,
We have lost all the will to love
I have lost all the feeling
I have lost all the feeling
