about

If you ever had a depression you'll know what this is about. Or if you just happen to think a lot about the meaning of it all. To us, this might be the musical work of our lifes, so far. It reminds us of the heavier side of King's
X but with the unavoidable Scandinavian melancholy.

lyrics

IN THIS PLACE (M. Pehrsson)

I know this place
I've been here before
Can we really seek
what does not exist?

Can it be
that forever is
since we're missing it?

Where we are death is not
Where death is
we are not

Why is it beautiful,
and our voices all unique?
Am I known
as some kind of freak?

As it turns out now
for the second time
you are here with me
Where would I be?

Where we are death is not
Where death is
we are not

Oh, how I feel
I don't know for sure
Will it take me a life
to know for sure

What I need now
You've had for so long
But you never told me
No you never told me

Oh how I know this place
where the Mima's out
It can't be replaced

This is how it seemed
inside the nomad's head
Do you know by now?

Where we are death is not
Where death is
we are not

Oh, how I feel
I don't know for sure
Will it take me a life
to know for sure

What I need now
You've had for so long
But you never told me
No you never told me

In this place

Where we are death is not
Where death is
we are not

Tell a lie
and you know the truth
Will it take me a lifetime?
Now it feels like I'm reading all of your wicked minds
and I know there is room for my own

Oh, how I feel
I don't know for sure
Will it take me a life
to know for sure

What I need now
You've had for so long
But you never showed me
No you never showed me

In this place, in this place

about

We Could Build an Empire Sweden

“I’ve had a pleasure to mix their latest EP and at their heart, lays a genuine drive to explore expression within their genre. I feel their strength lies in their lyrics as well as their powerful performance. They like to explore and grow in their uniqueness, and that feels like a much needed quality in todays music scene.“
