Multiplying the burden
Stacking up all that shit
The foundation long since out of sight
Losing grip, losing confidence
Unable to thrive
Those beloved idle days drowned in the swamps of stagnation of life

Full stagnation
No salvation
And heavy walls that are tumbling down
Conceal the ruins that are not our own
And all the wrinkles on concrete faces
Are just the sum of self-pity and hatred

Multiplying the burden
Losing grip, losing confidence
Foundation long out of sight
Stagnation, unable to thrive

Bricks that keep crashing down
From the ruins we've built on our own

Stagnation – Frustration
Lost in – contemplation
Selfbuilt damnation
We're creeping in isolation
Frustration – Stagnation
Self in- carceration
Selfbuilt - isolation
We're crawling - in damnation
