lyrics

they will erase everything you loved
to build everything you hate

those things you thought you owned
this place that you called home
such humble paradise, your way of life
now it seems to get in the way of someone's gain
they'll erase everything you loved
to build everything you hate

climb with me up a tree
you will see
----------------------------
if you stand in the way of someone they will try to make you move.
if it's about the profits of people with enough power the first thing they will do is to create a headache for you. bureaucracy, lawsuits, all kinds of obstacles out of nowhere. until your whole way of living gets so unendurable. that for you it's either you find another place or loose your mind.

that office complex on the river bank, the one that wasn't there a few years ago... i've looked at it a hundred times since they built it and still i have same question - what was it, a competition between dickhead architects to make the ugliest building ever?
and they couldn't decide who's the winner so they took parts from each project and that's how it became what we see today

where's the lake, where's the forest, it's all erased by the bulldozers
soon there's going to be a new cozy fansy neighbourhood.
shining new houses, stupid expansive;
and there'll be a shopping mall. with a huge parking lot and a gas station and whatever else...
life's gonna be beautiful. for someone else.
------------------------------
they'll erase everything that i loved
to build everything i hate
they'll erase anything in the name of gain
that's the way they game

Niedra is a threepiece from Norway and Russia that makes music in a landscape where diy avantgarde meets heavy punk and surrealism shakes hands with dadaism. Loud in a way that speaks to the skeleton and heavy like the weight of time.
