about

“Destroy” deals with the time I served in the army, when my boyhood fantasy of becoming a mighty warrior clashed with the harsh reality of serving as a grunt. “Destroy” is about destructive ways of getting what you want, whether you wage war or live at the expense of others in some other way. As a species, we destroy ourselves by destroying each other. We depend other human beings and this planet. How long can we go on like this before time runs out?

lyrics

To war, it purifies
Your lethargic soul

Far too long you've had to rest
Strength fades without this

Test your spirit
Is it roaring strong?

When nations clash, each proves its worth
Exist or

Do not hold your wrath
It is time for its release

See them over there?
They are evil throughout

As your government, we authorize
This slaughter of their kind

As your governor, I authorize
You to destroy

Hear me, army, they are near
Parasites and rats

Will you join me on my quest to exterminate them fast?

As a little boy I saw heroes marching strong
Now I see this way is wrong, we are here to but create

A world of harmony
Where true strength lies

Greatest enemy of this decay
Our godlike minds

Kill them all
Take their land
Simplest way is best

We have might
We cannot lose
But which land to choose?

Hear me, army, they are near
Parasites and rats

Will you join me on my quest to exterminate them fast?

Hear me, army, we are here
To liberate these lands

Hear me, all
They are here
Now kill or be killed
Now aim
Exist or

Don't fight fire with its kind
But death can come of death
It's so much harder to create

A world of harmony
We could live as gods

On they march, like machines of meat and blood
They were once like us

But breathing, not thinking
Instinctive animals

You should live to preserve life
Not to kill our kind

Not to die for their profits, when we can choose to rise
Use your eyes

Time keeps on running
And we are far behind

Keep on going
Keep on learning

To lead a human life

On they march, like machines of meat and blood
They were once like us

But breathing, not thinking
Instinctive animals

We should live to preserve life
Live to love our kind

Not to die for their fears, when we can choose to
Further life's cause
Save us, there is still

Time keeps on running
But we are gaining speed

We are soaring beyond
Our former selves left down

Far beyond time

.. waits for no one
So keep on gaining speed

Will you be there? Will you join me?

Let them witness
When we enter a new age

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.
