BACKHAND GAME (SONGWRITING + VOCALS + LYRICS)

Music written by Elias Checco & Nathalie Markoch
Lyrics written by Nathalie Markoch

VERSE I
Rage seats in thee
But instead of causing pain
It seeps, the rain
Diluting this distaste

VERSE II
Run, crawl…
Until your knees disjoint
While fleeing in awe
As they discharge the gun

PRE-CHORUS
Inured to let the strong
Knead their greed
Too certain do they know
Your ignorance is bliss

CHORUS
Despite all the smoke screens
Use your mind to finally tackle
This backhand game!

VERSE III
White, strong, tall
A delusion from the host
Defined by haste
Of creating disarray

PRE-CHORUS
Resemblance of the old
Days to come
The hard lesson once taught
Was long ago in-urned

CHORUS (EXT)
Despite all the smoke screens
Use your mind to finally tackle
This backhand game!

Rise for the future, for the past!
For the present that will last only if we fight
To recover what was ours
To redeem the key of wisdom and high trust!

Rise for the future, for the past!
For the present that will last only if we fight
To recover what was ours
Redeem the key of trust!

Guitar solo:

PRE-CHORUS
Inured to let the strong
Knead their greed
Too certain do they know
Your ignorance is bliss

CHORUS (EXT)
Despite all smoke screens
Use your mind to finally tackle
Their backhand game!
Devious minds oppress the horde
They wring out the value, the passion
The wrath from our hearts!

Rise for the future, for the past!
For the present that will last only if we fight
To recover what was ours
To redeem the key of wisdom and high trust!

Rise for the future, for the past!
For the present that will last only if we fight
To recover what was ours
Redeem the key of trust!

Guitar solo:
Elias Checco

CHORUS (EXT)
Despite all smoke screens
Use your mind to finally tackle
Their backhand game!
Devious minds oppress the horde
They wring out the value, the passion
The wrath from our hearts!

Rise for the future, for the past!
For the present that will last only if we fight
To recover what was ours
To redeem the key of wisdom and high trust!

Rise for the future, for the past!
For the present that will last only if we fight
To recover what was ours
Redeem the key…
