lyrics

[Film Sample]

[Werd]
The years 1899 and I find that I'm,
A missing sign in this clouded mind
Storm inside, rain reply, with the thunder by
An orchestra of elements in a spellbound sigh
Hi, you can call me what you want
See my name is un-important when you living out this long
Without sentiment or bound, no love, just little songs
Just an image, just a vision, no fruition made it on
Bye, see you knew me for bit
Understood what I was doing and my lyrics let it live
But when sentiment is missed, I just go and get so pissed
And try and blank out all the pain of having nothing but I wish
You could see me, for all I really am
A solo lost soul in a solace blank calm,
Ran, away from the demons
It's like I exist to only get steaming

I exist, but do I live?
Was I raised and taught in mist
And was I meant to do more than sit
And watch life go by (no reply) Exist [x2]

I exist, a blur in the mist
Clouded my mind, just mind what it is
I call - on the power of destruction
Don't fit the mould so a feel I've no function
F*cking feel like a blow from a truncheon'
Policing a state, in a state of corruption
Choices we make, change fate, do something
Feel like am loosing this life, doing nothing
Not dance, but I'm strictly
Not stopping this till Kapel Theta kills me
Jilted, feel like I'm lost in my city
Athens of North, feel Atlantis lost
It's a pity, but we still going on
Invest in our demon get steaming and hit bongs
In search of a meaning, a reason to stay strong
But, you knew it all along.

I exist, but do I live?
Was I raised and taught in mist
And was I meant to do more than sit
And watch life go by (no reply) Exist [x2]

I'm an odd man, Oddman chase me in accordance
Mishaps in my life but I write to explore them
Record them, feel a little change metamorphic
But always be me, new form, high endorphins,
Constant, pushing till I feel nonchalant and
Bars in my head, locked up, go Bronson
Pawned them second hand bars to often
Prawn to the shark that I was getting bronze when
Gold was the aim, or at least to make a name,
Take my aim, I'm just saying now I'm ready to dae
This little game and let it stay, aint get the better of me
This is all I ever do, this is reflection man-made.

I exist, but do I live?
Was I raised and taught in mist
And was I meant to do more than sit
And watch life go by (no reply) Exist [x2]
