lyrics

Born into a world of unconcern
Pain, deprivation and misery – unknown
All streets seem to be paved with gold
„Just take one of a thousand opportunities, luck is with you if you work hard enough“

Your golden cage it feels so save
But it can't withstand any flood of sorrow
The sun that always shines is just a weak flame
And the calm you take for granted is just the eye of the storm

Rise up to the sky
Embrace the sun til your dreams are burned away
Fall down to the ground
Inhale the dust of life's insignificance
Rise up to the sky
Save yourself from the rat race down below
Fall down to the ground
To build a monument of dead dreams' bones

Paralysed when disaster strikes
A black cloudy monolith is crushing your dreams
You never looked behind the veil of shallow comfort
Where misfortune lurked – now it mangles your faith and your courage to face life
