From the album A Fervent Prayer
This song has often been our live set opener. It actually kick starts our gigs in a most energetic way.
Vic had wrote the lyrics inspired by Orwells 1984, but had no real idea on the music yet. Per looked at the lyrics and played the familiar a-riff that still is the trademark of the song. The whole tune just came alive in 20 minutes and we instantly knew we had a killer song.
What is this cold dark room?
Why can't they let me out?
I can't see any resource
All I see is bars and bricks around my head
Do you think that they would hear my scream?
Do you think they would wash my face?
There's nothing special with me
There's nothing special at all
(repeat 1st verse)
There's no use to resist
Unless you're flying high
So all I have is lust
So all I have is lust for a prayer
What's life and what's it for?
Live your life you will never get more
And after this what is to come?
And what is 101?
I've always believed the words you said
But I was never convinced
I had to know if it was true
But now your lies bends out in my brain
I run around with screams of pain
Was it worth all the weeping sorrows?
So what the hell am I crying for?
