lyrics

You know I recognize
That trembling in your voice when you talk to me
Oh babe you gotta realize
That there's no secret you can keep from me
You think I cannot feel the waves that rage within
But I,
I'd rather push you down and let you drown
Than let you drift away

Just how high do you value my devotion?
Just how far do you think you'll get without my protection?
Just how much do you expect me to take?
Just how many of your pretty bones must I break?

I wanna see what your eyes see
I wanna bind your blood to me
I wanna be the air you breathe
(bind your blood to me)
And I will burn it all down
All just to rule the ash on the ground
Feeding the flames until it's dark
And all we have is gone

Bow before the ruler of ashes

Don't you know I recognize
Every one of your sweet little lies
Don't try to hide from me
Don't you see that there's no secret you can keep from me?
I'd rather let you drown
Than let you drift away
You think I cannot feel the waves that rage within
I'd rather push you down and let you drown
Than let you get away

Won't let you get away
Won't let you get away
Won't let you get away
You will never leave me

I wanna see what your eyes see
I wanna bind your blood to me
I wanna be the air you breathe
(bind your blood to me)
And I will burn it all down
All just to rule the ash on the ground
Feeding the flames until it's dark
And all we have is gone
Forever gone

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.
