give me, give me the speed i need
i want more life, don't need this state to last
i want more to burn, i want more to break
so give me the speed i need

my own movement feels so strange
are we all insane, or is it only me?
believing, believing in the free will
to last, to burn, to die

fail against my domination
learn the sweetness of my mercy
guide my reckless steel
make me feel
or fix my speed

no force to loud to try
never reaching, never reaching through the glass
scratching, itching my steel
let go, let go, unknown mind

motions, actions from a pure mind
a rare thing! a wise thing?
so begin, move crush
so restless, dayless, always

fail against my domination
learn the sweetness of my mercy
guide my reckless steel
make me feel
or fix my speed

    General CommentThe chorus of this song seems to refer to some person the artist is trying to crush. A person who is annoying him to insanity. Then he demands that the person bow before him, and kill the person. Then he asks for some "special power" to guide his sword to kill this person, or make him think to do otherwise. This song is absolutely great for dancing, as with all EBM music by bands such as Covenant. Good stuff!

    General Commenti know many of you will disagree with me on this one, and think that covenant are "above this", but i really think this song is about sex. i think the giveaway is the part that begins "motions, actions from a pure mind..."
    given the liberal attitudes on sex in sweden, i think this song makes perfect sense in a sexual framework.

    General Commentor maybe it's about taking speed ;)

    "so restless, dayless, always"

    General CommentI've always thought this was a song about sex, too. The chorus is kind of a giveaway, for me. Specifically, sub/dom sex, I think, also maybe from the point of view of the dom, in the heat of the moment, revelling in his (I assume in this case, his) control, and in the end, challenging the sub to show control of her (for argument's sake, her) own.

    Fail against my domination - this could even be violent.
    Learn the sweetness of my mercy
    Guide my reckless steel (!)
    Make me feel -
    or fix my speed - that would be the challenge. Subjugate yourself, or take control. Your choice.

    General CommentHmm...then again, it could also be drug-related. Guide my reckless steel....maybe it's both, the complications of a relationship based solely on drugs and sex. I like the sex idea better though.
