Music by Kenneth Holmström

Lyrics by Jonas Lundberg

 

The moment of inertia

The inner claustrophobia

A pressure needing to control

It´s left behind. What´s done is done

The yet to come, just turn and run

A vague awareness in the dark

 

I see no road to find

the inner peace of mind

if there´s no clemency

for breaking men like me

 

I´m on the inside looking out

The feckless footman, without doubt

better alone than overthrown

You say a heart is meant to feel

Well lucky you, with no ordeals

A heart that runs is hard to beat

 

I see no road to find

the inner peace of mind

if there´s no clemency

for breaking men like me

 

Ain´t no room for a lover´s waltz

Ain´t no room for the common faults, may I

hear the beat of a different drum

find the way to a heart so numb, may I

 

I see no road to find

the inner peace of mind

if there´s no clemency

for breaking men like me

 

I need someone to see

if there is more to me

Could there be clemency

for breaking men like me
