Those defiant ways
Those defiant ways
Yes, I followed them just to be back again
Those defiant ways
Realised too late how they tempted my will
They enchanted my youth like a bored know-all child
So naïve to believe that my fucking dreams will come true

[Repeating]
Tranquil country lifestyle

That's why I see no way to be the man that I ever wanted to be
Rebel by heart to break the chains, break the chains, break the chains that keep me here
I'd like to breathe the air of a vivid endless city just to begin
Rebel by heart to break the chains, break the chains, break the chains that keep me here

Refugee in the ocean of modern age

[2x]
Endless city embrace me
Motivation runs through me

Ambitious, delicious,
Adventurous, contentious,
Exciting, inviting,
I'm writing, I'm fighting
For my dreams...

Oh what a challenge to write
I work at day and by night
Can't find a minute to think
God knows I'm on the blink
Never there's silence around
Is this my dream that I found?

Got the time to breathe
Independently
Pressure lies beneath
My own liberty
So I can't believe:
Only empty sheets
Feel how time deceives
Sacred dignity!

Dignity, liberty
Sanity, mendacity
Dignity (dignity), liberty (liberty)
Sanity, mendacity

Dignity (dignity), dignity (stop)

Time... against all I could not keep pace
Where is my way, a shrine deserted without trace
How should I breathe, how should I flee from claws
That try to suppress me?
There was no sign along my way
No guide, no help and so I pray
I pray

All tears, all cries
Forgotten, all lies
To leave... it's no defeat
Just a detour makes you see
Embraced city, I have to go
It's not your fault
Now I know

Those defiant ways
Those defiant ways
Yes, I followed them just to be back again
Those defiant ways
Those defiant ways
Yes, I followed them, I followed them
Yes, I followed them
