-ALL PROCEEDS FROM THIS RELEASE GO TO CHARITY FROM DECEMBER 13 2019 TO JANUARY 31ST 2020-

“The song INHERITED is a story about domestic violence, subjection and all the evil shit that can happen when you grow up in a fucked up environment; stuff that scars you for life. The really sad part of this is that it can mold you to treat other people the way you were treated, and you might not even notice it. We all have our ghosts and it takes a shit load of time and effort to learn that it’s not our fault. We don’t have to be a shadow of our memory, repeating the mistakes of our fathers or mothers. We are NOT what we’ve been told! Unfortunately the dialogue-based story of the song reflects the reality, and like it is usually in real life, the story doesn’t end up well.” -Antti Karhu

“Post Pulse gives our music away for free because we want to share our art with the world. After we wrote Inherited and understood the impact of the lyrics, we thought it would be a nice contribution to society if we were to accept donations for the track and pass those gifts along to an organization that helps children who come from circumstances like those in our story. We hope that if you have the means to do so that you will help us make the world a little better than it was yesterday by making a donation.” -Sam Roon

Track Name: Inherited
“Where did you go?”
The lack of my courage
“Come back here!”
Released me from pain
“Stay down there!”
Released me out of his evil empire

“More!”
Unrealistic expectations
“More!”
Laid upon this growing boy
“You can’t!”
Unfulfilled goals of my father, the mission contaminant

Just shadows is what we are
Repeating life, the mistakes of our fathers
Proud and strong and blind, what if
It’s all just an illusion – or just matter of choice,
these Inferior creatures can be destroyed

“Quiet!”
It came out of nowhere
Even though the marks were always there,
Pressure of the shadows, like a vest made out of lead,
press too much to stand

Two first hits just destroyed the frightened surface,
Strengthen the hatred inside,
But after the black out, when nothing really matters,
He knew real work had just begun

Just shadows is what we are
Repeating life, the mistakes of our fathers
Proud and strong and blind, what if
It’s all just an illusion – or just matter of choice,
and Inferior creatures can be destroyed
The door will be hidden and buried behind child’s eyes,
But it can be found.

I shouldn’t be here,
I shouldn’t be seen,
I should not feel unsafe and frightened around here,
The stink of rust,
Makes my stomach turn,
It’s either turn or no return

“The more you fight, the more I grow and feel like proper man,
The fort of power over taking what is my own land,
I am your God and you’ll obey – it’s universal law,
bow – in my control”

The more you hurt the better, feed the broken soul inside,
There’s nothing left for you to brake, I’ve started to fade out,
Look at my shell – there’s no one there,
I am your monster - that you prepared

Look at me - You scarred me for life,
Still in that deep hole I hide,
it’s more like retribution - the fact that I survived,
I’m stuck here forever, in your evil empire

Just shadows is what we are
Repeating life, the mistakes of our fathers
Proud and strong and blind,
It’s all just an illusion –a matter of choice,
These Inferior creatures cannot be destroyed
The door will be hidden and buried behind child’s eyes,
It doesn’t want to be found - no,
Now inferior creature - is what I am too
