about

Song about people who loose their personality when they get older. Everything they stand for gets eaten by their jobs, wifes, kids, mortgage... They become mental slaves.

This is one of the songs with a thrash metal influence.

lyrics

MENTAL SLAVE

Disgusting little man
I don't recognize you anymore
You left dreams for the sake of what
You know no one's waiting up above

Mental slave
Bound in chains
By your own choosing

Drown your fears
On your knees
You're victim of yourself

Come on let someone in control
Let excuses start to flow
You don't have to think at all
Sit and rot if that’s what you want

You're a mental slave
Living in chains
You're a mental
You're a mental
You're a mental
Slave

Little part of a machine
It hurts my eyes to see how well you fit
Every day the same old shit
Waking up to see how dull it is

Mental slave
Bound in chains
By your own choosing

Drown your fears
On your knees
You're victim of yourself

Breed, work till the end of days
Slave now lives in your heart
With no hope for your resurrection
I wish we never meet again

Yes, I know It's all subjective
I may be the one who's behind the times
You peacefully evolve when I
Spit venom and still seek for my path

Now you complain
But you don't want to change
You are safe
In a prison you've built

You never want to think why
It all happened this way
You'll never break your chains
You'll never be free

You're a mental
You're a mental
You're a mental
Slave

about

Nihil Quest Bydgoszcz, Poland

Nihil Quest was established in the summer of 2006. The main idea was to play music inspired in first place by hard rock and metal classics (such as Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Slayer), but also to include some blues and industrial rock influences.

NQ stands out from the local music scene because of their inclination for multimedia. Check out YouTube channel www.youtube.com/user/NihilQuest
