Leave me in destruction! No perfect way to die When every single piece of me shatters, I defy my fright Here in this dark room I can’t remember why I struggle to control my breath - One moment for one life It’s rising again I feel you up my neck, floating down my veins My body shivering, my breath is getting short With every second I tell myself to Not get insane Avoid the bane Brace myself but it’s all in vain It’s only me, there’ll be nobody else to help me out of this Pretending feel, eating up the rest of me - until I suffocate Dark hole... Locked up alone - sitting, waiting Cold sweat... It doesn’t hurt, but does death? This isn’t me - for I’m a weak victim of my own mind - as you can see. Searching for some shelter to bring me back in line Or promise my decline Pretending feel, eating up the rest of me - until I suffocate Waiting for the unknown The price to pay for life in secured trust - Believe in destiny - Is this the last collapse? Or just another trick you’re played when your mind is sick? I search the night for the reasons of my guilt Take a look into the horror that I’ve built I need time on my own Reanimate my trust Keep away - Oh won’t you just Leave me in destruction! No perfect way to die When every single piece of me shatters, I defy my fright Here in this dark room I can’t remember why I struggle to control my breath - One moment for one life Life! Hate me! Bittersweet farewell! Disdain me! It is your farewell! Took back my stolen pride Banished the demon from inside A glimpse of hope as I pretend - I will be never weak again!

about

Hokum Munich, Germany

Hokum plays metal. Metal that is progressive, technical and straightforward at the same time. As contradictory as it may sound, you have to experience one of their gigs or some tracks from their four available CDs to truly understand. Thrash metal meets progressive rock, groove meets polyrhythm, harmonies meet dissonances. Hokum is metal. ... more
