The first single and fifth track on the self-titled debut album by Swedish progressive metal-quintet Limbo.


“Leaving a world of eternal unknowing and entering one of alleged all-knowing
The atmosphere is tense and taunting
With eyes everywhere always watching
Do not stray too far from the norm
In this world of the most despicable form

A world built on greed and intuition
On a steady course towards oblivion

Believing our minds are satisfied
That the purpose of our lives has reached its high
Relying blindly on a deity, whose words we dare not defy
Through his scriptures we find our laws that we generously apply
And must we never ask the forbidden question; why?

Cutting away our reasoning, deemed as corrupted flesh
Voluntarily lacking the ability to progress
Without questioning, submitting ourselves to a world of regress

Do not stray too far from the norm
In this world of the most despicable form

I am the culprit for this human condition
Through my careless decisions
Vainly trying to convince beings of inactivity
To explore what could lie beyond our vicinity
But I am outnumbered, despite my attempts
As species, I refuse to be recognised as insignificant”
