Debut single from the dutch experimental metal band IDEK.


I don't know how to make it clear
how little you are yourself.
Spitting curses and sins as words,
to try and fit in, ignoring your
human inner self!

[While you shout to the youngsters how they suck, they are cutting themselves out of the self-hatred
you gave them.
yet still you laugh because others pretend you're cool doing it, while everyone thinks you're a fool.]

Do you want this? Do you want to be hated?
Is infamy worth more than peace?

Go live your life, continue being blind.
In the end you'll be, even worthless in your own eyes.

Do you ever see and feel the pain others experience because
you never even think about what a cruel wretched waste of flesh you are?
Like this you'll never find real friends real love or real bliss,
How will you realise, you're your victim's biggest torture.

If you love to hate,
I wanna make you bleed.
If you want to scream,
Go scream to me.

Your body will shiver.
your face will wither.

but if there's any piece of human left in you,
A second chance in life will do.

Repent from your ways and apologise,
To whoever you did harm in your disguise.
The suit of conformistic egoïsm,
creating a bigger schism,
start to think about your life for once.
If you won't, well that's just your fault.
Your heart will be haunted by guilt.
Or should I just end it here, right now?

The choice is yours.
