lyrics

We can't submit our lives
Confined in frames that will fade in time
Within the hallways of our minds
I know every second bears my name
At the crossroads of a shifting fate
And change is my destiny

Painting a picture of the world
And maybe it's all an illusion
But through it all I know that I'm alive

Stay with me
To see the end of the world
There is no other way
But to live and die today
Stay with me
For a night bittersweet
And be free of delusion

Apathy is your death
You're so content to remain enslaved
In a prison cell too safe to leave
In shackles far too comfortable to break
We can't submit our lives to indifference and fading time
This is not what it should be

Leave your impression on the world
(There's no other way, just no other way)
Cause even if it's an illusion
(May my eyes betray, but I'm alive today)
This beating heart of mine is not a lie

Stay with me
To see the end of the world
There is no other way
But to live and die today
Stay with me
For a night bittersweet
And be free of delusion

Leaves fall so gracefully at the break of dawn

We are awake for this moment in time
How could it last forever?
Life is a frail and fleeting sigh
And though I know the shadow will fall on all of us
I still feel you here
This is what is real
A divinity in you

Stay with me
To see the end of the world
There is no other way
But to live and die today
Stay with me
For a night bittersweet
And be free of delusion

about

Mekanism Finland

Mekanism is a five-piece rock act whose music is built around fiery rock and metal riffs infused with pop sensibilities. The emphasis is on clean vocals, but we do employ the occasional aggressive scream and shout for an added balls factor.

Massive metal riffs interwoven with beautiful choruses create the atmosphere that Mekanism is all about:
an icing of vulnerability on a cock rock cake.
