about

“Avert” is a piece of pain, sorrow and hate. At times it may feel as if the world hates you. There may be people who abuse you and aim to hurt you physically or mentally. This can result in aversion, as happened in my case. I was subjected to mental torture through bullying, which made me wary of other people. This forced me to turn to myself for strength, which resulted in growth and insight. Aversion can also evolve into hostility and even physical violence. Violent tendencies grew within me, but did not externalize.

lyrics

Come child, do stay
Hear what this clown has to say

We are unique, all of us
Well, most of us
Oh come on, let's not make a fuss

Come child, no fear
This clown but wants your ear

If someone's weird, a wee strange
Should you poke at him and call him by some nasty names?

Come child, come near
Is it truly I you fear?

There is a beast in each of us
Even in quiet ones

So do be careful with the harmless ones

When your life is hell, so is mine
If I become stone, will you live me alone?

Day after day - you torture me
You burn me with your spiteful tongue, you come and we'll play
Till you're done

You force me to share pain with you
Pain you've been dealt, a victim too
Passing it on, down to me
Avert your fear

You fear too
Someone somewhere hurt you too
Does controlling me keep you sane?

Driving your claws into me, infect me with your taint
Spitting right into my soul, avert your fear

You force me to share pain with you
Pain you've been dealt, a victim too
Passing it on, down to me
Please, leave me alone

Stop talking
Shut your mouth
Lay your hand on me again

Or I will do much worse
Or I will take your life

Avert, divert
Terrified of being hurt
Are you a coward or worth a life?
Choose to remain dead or conquer your fear of death

Death

Crush them all
Who dare to push you

Have a fate
Don't let them use you

Serve your purpose, serve or fall
Be all you can, you make the call

Life's a dirty, ruthless game
Succeed or fail? Learn how to play

Live without fear, don't miss a day
Timid souls will pave your way

Have a fate
Don't be a pawn

Know your purpose, know your soul
Else become lost, else join the ones

Who live but don't, who stumble all their lives

Avert, divert
Terrified of being hurt
Are you a coward or worth a life?
Choose to remain dead or conquer your fear of death

Bully, now run
Live in fear of being hurt
Are you a coward? Can you walk the walk?

about

Timo Komulainen Finland

Raised in a family of musicians, I found the way of an artist a natural path to follow. I started by playing violin in my childhood, and continued on to practicing guitar and composing when I was twenty years old.
I have published three albums: Viral's "Antediluvian Hunger" was released in 2008 and Omniavatar's "United Earth" in 2010. In August 2013 I published "Biographical" under my own name.
