lyrics

A long long time ago I did not think about what I did and what people thought about it, I was a child
I did not realize that every step I took and every word I said were making me to a member of a party, a party
I did not know that every childish little feeling was a betrayal to the people I should love and I should thank on my knees
How should I have known that every innocent little thing I did in good faith was making me to your enemy, your enemy
And then I started to understand the rules of this game, I felt so ashamed of evertything I was and all I wished was to disappear

The price of peace cannot be payed, as long as everyone is looking for blood
If I try to please you and to make up, you won't listen you just want me to stop
But you want more than I can pay, you always want me there and out of your way
Our fuckin' pride, oh, what a loss, not even time can burry the hatchet for us.

Freedom for everyone sounds great, but tell me who is actually free, no politician, no country, no farmer not even you and me.
So I told them, what they wanted to hear to keep my ass away from their black list but it was in vain, because my name has already been there for years.

The price of peace cannot be payed, as long as everyone is looking for blood
If I try to please you and to make up, you won't listen you just want me to stop
But you want more than I can pay, you always want me there and out of your way
Our fuckin' pride, oh, what a loss, not even time can burry the hatchet for us.

What have I done ?
What could I do ?
Whatever I try
Makes no difference to you
Makes no difference to you...

Hate needs no reason
All it needs is an excuse
It wants your abasement
until you're willing to comply
demands what is priceless
to prevent you from making amends

The price of peace cannot be payed as long as everyone is looking for blood
If I try to please you and to make up you won't listen you just want me to stop
But you want more than I can pay, you always want me there and out of your way
Our fuckin' pride, oh, what a loss, not even time can burry the hatchet for us.

So I let you hate me
I have no choice
I'll go my way
And all I can hope for you is that lead by hate, you're not ending up in that place,
where you wanted me to have.

about

Ticket to Nowhere Ettiswil, Switzerland

Seit 2010 schreibt Ticket to Nowhere aus dem Kanton Luzern Songs, die sich zwischen Post-Hardcore und Symphonic Metal bewegen.
