Innocence 03:58
I finally accepted what I have become But is it truly for the better? All we have is nothing more than constraints Choices everywhere, every time we go further Is that what we call liberty? We’re ruining our credibility In taking away others‘ dignity It makes me sick with nausea Innocence, you’re a fool But innocence you’re not cruel Laying here like a baby in my arms Innocence, so elusive A constant runaway Reminding me how simplicity is so hard to find Opening my eyes! Even if I don’t want to see Spectator of our theatrics Wanting to change, yet again I remain A broken face in a shatterproof mirror I take pleasure to think And talk like a self confident grown up But I strive for a childlike nature I’m a liar to you BLESSED ARE THE POOR IN SPIRIT
2.
Numb/Dumb 03:23
I KISSED YOUR FEET AGAIN Bore your golden robe Praised your holy name But the clutch is pressing on my neck Breaking my own will You Blow where it hurts You keep me from doubt Goddess of my illusions You know, you know, me well As I offer myself to your altar Pouring out my thick blood ALL OVER YOU You grin, my loss What I held most precious I've lived to suffer I even thought I couldn't breathe without you Relying on your feeble branches To hold me secure I've recognized the web you've spinned I've recognized the distorted plans I've come to terms with the constant agony Wounds of my soul I'm leaving all this shit behind, starting a new If this is redemption from my past I guess this is fuck you OH GODDESS OF MY ILLUSIONS YOU KNOW ME WELL
3.
My Own God 02:57
Did you read what I wrote about my sad existence? Now you know where I‘ve been and what I have eaten I’m the one, my own god, so you certainly would like it I need to show you that my life is better than yours What have we done, to live such a pathetic life? I can’t bear it anymore Individualism, time and time again An insane way of life We don’t need appreciation to prove that we exist We don’t need approval from society Why do those trivial facts become so important Through our eyes? Maybe we’ve got to learn the word humility
4.
I find myself questioning everything around me Everything I thought I knew everything that felt right Into this ocean of thoughts, into endless doubts Maybe I've lost myself, maybe I’ve touched the ground It may just be the beginning The beginning of something new A real and fresh new start Maybe it's the first time I TRULY BREATHE Maybe it's the first time I FEEL ALIVE I WON’T let this pass away Let me sing to the wind and scream at the sun I WON’T get brainwashed for anything I'd rather die I won't let anyone tell me what is true I won't let anyone tell me what to do Let me grow up So I can keep my head above water I have my own reasons Let me try, even if I sink I will resurface I will start again, endlessly
5.
No empathy anymore There’s no you no more I’m here for myself and that’s it Serving me, serving my own benefit You can die working for me Working for me in a diamond mine No help without a return from you I made myself so why don’t you? GIVE ME MORE! I WILL ALWAYS BE THIRSTY GO AWAY! ALL YOU HAVE WILL BELONG TO ME What a sad little world Like there is no love anymore And I know there is someone at my door All too often I prefer my own remorse
6.
Let’s rise above the cloudy sky Dancing will never end Forget about the ground That we have given up forevermore Now we are out of the crowd With a serene look behind Surrounded by the morning light The wind is singing The sun warmed our hearts What more could you ask for The giants who are bogged down In their precious faeces Look so absurd from where we stand We have to ditch our golden crowns Our chains on our ankles, What better than a light luggage to travel nicely No need to be afraid, fear nothing This melancholic feeling will quickly wear off The unknown is quite an exciting thing We’ll never be alone, alone anymore Let’s dream about the end of this slavery AND THE TASTE OF LIBERTY
7.
No void inside our heads No time to breathe Our world inside our hands We always want to see Scared to confront each other’s looks Our awkward talks, our strong feelings Hiding in a safe and protective place Is our mind so fucked up That we all need those inert false limbs? Is life so boring that we need to replace it? We live alone together Less talk for better control We live alone together Simplicity makes us weary LET IT GO, we have a neighbourhood Let it go, let’s rethink our way of living

Dirty Hands 03:50
I sweat My efforts are naive and I'm still waiting I prefer to cling to my teenage dreams I'm tired But I cannot stop this ending I might not be able to sing lullabies I remember the innocence of their ironic words Destructive prophecies Now, now I know why only disgust remains I’m puzzled, are people not just here to simply live? It will never end Do they want me to know what I will be tomorrow? It will never end When we will be face to face Will you forgive me For not following your rules? Will you force me back to you? I gave up on my victories Went into the belly of the devil YOU WITH YOUR DIRTY HANDS
9.
It’s been a long time since we’ve carried on Evolving years after years in our little world And it’s a huge and crazy privilege For us to live our lives through our passion Our hearts beat so fast Every time we play We hope that it will never end Laughter and smiles Are what we aim for Sometimes it’s not like that But let us believe it is It’s part of our lives, and we will never regret it Even if they say we’re playing music for kids Let’s be honest and say It’s a real cacophony But we have a good excuse Music or whatever you call it Is not only a listening task It’s the language of the heart ALL WE WANT IS TO SING AND PLAY Let’s sing and play We’re lucky bastards, without you we’re nothing Sing with us, be a part, a part of it, tonight!

Emergency 03:41
I have a song to sing Is anyone listening? I'm in a state of emergency And music is the only remedy There’s some poison running in my veins And I can feel it banging in my head My whole soul is paralyzed Oh my bones are so cold Is there somewhere in this world Some place where I could finally rest Asleep on the highest peak Or drown underwater I didn't find a better cure For the pain that consumes my heart Than sing this simple song, sing this melody I have a song to sing Is anyone listening? I'm in a state of emergency And music is the only remedy I never quite find the right words At the right time. I am never Calm through the storm the one The one that you could rely on For this I'm sorry Cause I might never be As strong as I should have been I'd give anything To see you smile again To see you free from pain Every night I get down on my knees and I pray TOMORROW YOU’LL GET BETTER TOMMORROW WILL BE A BETTER DAY

about

Archers and Arrows Switzerland
