lyrics

Hi, you may calm down
Those people in the picture sink
So your smile sounds brutal

In here there’s nothing left
No career opportunities
No dogma

Hi, you may slow down
Our cockaigne land is but a waist
Of a special…
A special formula
With special golden rules
Our dogma ?
No dogma

Ambitious and their silk youth
Stuck here
Fill the cups
Of seared addicts, oh dear!

Where and when they'll see the old dead buffalo?
Where and when they'll meet the owner of the code?
Where and when they'll taste the cooking of them all?
Where the hell have all the good times gone?
Yell out…

Young vicious with your milk tooth
Stop here
Come fill the cups
Of old MacHeath, oh dear!

Where and when to be a lively buffalo?
Where and when to meet the owner of the code?
Where and when to taste the cooking of them all?
Where the hell have all the good times gone?
Yell out…

The ambitious with his white youth
Stayed here
His desire of luxury
Melt away to feed the deadly Soylent Green

Where and when he saw the young dead buffalo ?
Where and when he met the owner of the code ?
Where and when he ate the cooking of them all ?
Are some questions he got pretty close

After hundreds of concerts, extensive touring in Europe and 5 albums, WE INSIST! have from the very the beginning shared the same desire to battle for new musical ideas. These ideas and goals are the main reasons for their uncommon longevity: WE INSIST! is more than a rock band, it’s a genuine musical project.

Is it post-hardcore, noise, metal, independant rock, pop or experimental?
