about

Song about homeless alcoholics who seem to live forever, despite all the shit they have to go through every day. The most bluesy song from "1.1 Splendid Isolation".

lyrics

SPLENDID ISOLATION

He woke broken
Without life
Without tears
Without shame

Good as dead
Yet still alive
That's primal will
drives him to breathe

With a bottle of booze
A ticket to the place
Where it doesn't hurt

Screams what's left
out of his mind
Can't take it anymore
Just turn it down

Splendid isolation
The only thing that matters
Splendid isolation
Just kill the outside world
Inside

Dignity died
That's a forgotten word
Since thousands of bottles ago

He doesn't smell
His own stench
He doesn't see
How dark his skin got

With a bottle of booze
A ticket to the place
Where it doesn't hurt

Lost his home
Years ago
He has nothing to gain
Nothing to lose

Walking disease that still soldiers on
Outlived so many of
those he used to know

He is lost to the world
And this world is dead to him

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
