about

Like Prometheus, all of us everyday live the same hell on these modern look-alike prison cities. We are mentally roped in a huge rock and an eagle is eating our liver every single day. We expend ourselves to the same routine, building walls and closing our eyes and ears carefully so that nothing can distract our misery. The first enemy that we must defeat is our own self. We are all Prometheus and we are all also the eagle. One and the same. Eating ourselves.

lyrics

Put your pride aside,
put your view aside!
Now listen.
This is the most vigorous game,
described as well, as immortal flame!
That's where you fail to play.
That's where you get burnt, all the way.
Junk is all they make you need.
That's the plan, then you can't breed.
Breed life, breed smile, breed authentic use of time.
Build up walls and gates for your precious mind.
Now, stop living in cells.
You know, the cells you see.
Now, stop living in cells.
You know, the cells you feel.
Now, stop living in cells.
The ones you're happy to be in.
Now, stop living in cells.
The ones you refuse to see.
But in the long run, you'll be happy to know.
You'll be happy to know.
You'll be happy to know.
