The World State Aarhus, Denmark

Five good friends with an urge to express ourselves through both the well known rock and pop musical territories, and sometimes in the more progressive manners.

Our lyrical themes are all about what goes through our heads on an everyday basis, in a more and more incomprehensible modern world, where common sense often seems to have reached its expiration date...

Track Name: Flier
Once we flew
We lived our lives above yours
Our feathered wings
Kept our distance to you
But your greed
Stole our open spaces...

Hope lasts forever
Hope lasts forever

The remains of conscience
could it still be found
Did you just hide it away

Your blackened eyes
Will keep you in doubt
Is there a second chance waiting for you

Hope lasts forever
Hope lasts forever

Once you had
your precious dignity
But you seemed to loose it

You´re living your lives in a shell
trying to be someone else
have you lost all you visions
will you find a way?
Track Name: Engine
The wind blows when the world is closing down
The last eyes going blind
All except the spies - explores of the night
- They just can´t be inspired by day

The pale moon whispers as the black car drives by
The shadows holds the key to whom they´re gonna meet
For them the light of day is the best reason to escape 
- They just cant be inspired by day

They just can´t be inspired by day
They use the night´s to get away

Fire burns when they get their turns
They just don´t need all those people here
They dream of disappearing into the night... 
Track Name: When The Blackening Shows
Standing in the doorway to the rivers that rush over you
But the rivers are not enough to get rid of this state

Shattered pasts are splintering the glass
Splintered glass will form the new path

Tonight we take a trip towards the moon
I must say that I´m convinced that the rumors are true

It´s the only way to escape this gray cocoon
Splintered glass will form the new path

Guess we´ll all get what we deserved
This new path leads to the end

And when at last the blackening shows
We´re all just residues for the crows
We´ll all get just what we deserved
This new path leads right to the end
