Within these four walls only a number exists
Which does not progress
Which slowly will wish more and more for death
But suddenly my conscience awakes
And I see this tide with no heartbeat
Only the pulse of machines
And the military showing their midwives' faces
Full of sweetness
How much humanity
Exposed to hunger, cold, panic, pain
Moral pressures, terror and insanity?
What horror the face of fascism creates!
They carry out their plans
With knife-like precision
For them blood equals medals
Slaughter is an act of heroism
How hard it is to sing
When I sing a song of horror
Horror which I am living
Horror which I am dying
To see myself among so much
And so many moments of infinity
In which silence and screams
Are the end of my song

    General CommentExcellent song by an unknow escellent band..

    Here are the missing lyrics that can be heard in the first minute of the song:

    Silence dissolves all objects.
    It is not related to any counterpart which belongs to the mind.
    Silence has nothing to do with the mind.
    It cannot be defined.
    It can be felt directly because it is our nearness.
    Silence is restriction.
    It is feeling without a feeler.
    Silence needs no intermediary.
    Sound which comes from silence is music.

    General CommentJust an amazing song and amazing band. The silence monologue is resonates with a lot Buddhist ideas, especially Zen. Can't get enough of this.
