I'm growing seed in a haystack
I give it a splash of green
It's not the sun
It's not the water
There's something more to make me live

And I breed and I can't feel but sap tears when I'm cut off

I'm a living gnat
mating and flying
we're two but seem one
like a siamese kind of thing
Or if I was propped in to a mirror

And I may not even feel but I drop blood tears, I stole from beings

Cos' I'm only here for reproduction so that my coded information is passed on and on and on an I can have a glimpse at immortality

    General CommentI guess unless you live in Portugal or perhaps Spain, you´ve never heard of this band. And honestly, with a name like Silnece 4, who would take any interest in it? Beats the hell outta me. You have no idea what your missing. Just listen to it.

    General CommentSilence 4 is one of those bands that are completely different from any other. The songs sound so beautifully that you can never forget them. I read that this is the story of a guy that use to give sperm for in vitro reproduction in order to achieve immortality

    General CommentHeyy ... lived in Portugal for 7 years, im Argentinean, how are ya?
    Uploaded the Silence 4 lyrics because they are awesome... i used to play these songs a lot in a time of my life i was pretty much down and they gave me comfort.
    I like breeders' fast pace and like desperation tone of the guy trying to reach immortality, but for some reason he seems sad about the fact, or desperate as i said. Any other suggestions?
