about

Stalkers 2020 is a remastered and expanded edition of the original Stalkers [EP]. This new album contains all tracks included on the original release, includes the single release contents of 'The World Belongs To Us' and some new previously unreleased tracks, plus some small extras.

The new contents include a new track 'This Too Shall Pass', previously performed in concert but yet to see any form of studio release. We have also added some of our obscure and unreleased instrumental tracks as an added bonus.

We hope you enjoy the release, as usual, it's entirely free unless you chose otherwise. If you already have the 2018 Stalkers [EP] release, we would like to suggest you take another look at this edition! The future of the World lies uncertain as of right now, we live in unusual times, but we're here to remind you that This Too Shall Pass.

Track Name: MMXV
An entire year of pure suffering
Distress and decay keeps on coming our way
How long will we spend recovering?
Sickening pain in our hearts will forever stay

Words simply can't describe
The turmoil felt in every single vibe

I don't wanna grieve, I just wanna breathe
The end of an era, now it's time to leave

If only we knew it were doomed from the start
Now we watch on as everything falls apart
And our entire World collapses all around
All that we know has crumbled to the ground

The maniacal auras are circling
As the shards of doubt penetrate to no end
Our radical thoughts are so deafening
We’re just not strong enough to further defend
Track Name: Stalkers
Eyes upon you, far away
Presence felt, every day
Wake up now it’s time to rise
You’re too scared to open your eyes
All your warmth has turned to cold
All your stories have been told

Here again, they tighten the chain
Can you fathom this refrain?
Restricting you by unscrupulous means
Black eyes pierce into your deepest dreams
A presence felt, no other way
Binds you to your final day

As they stand and stare
Unease you cannot bear
Escape now if you dare
It doesn’t matter where
They’ll be watching you
They’ll be stalking you

You become aware
The path leads to nowhere
A state of disrepair
Wallowing in despair
As they’re watching you
As they’re stalking you
From far away

They’re watching you from far away
You feel their presence every day
The omnipresent entities
Experimental Identities
You are the warmth, they’re the cold
Forced to fit into their mold

Your misery will still remain
But bitterly you can’t complain
Unafraid, the shadows cry
Blacker than the falling sky
You feel their presence every day
They’re watching you from far away

As I stand and stare
Unease you cannot bear
Escape now if you dare
It doesn’t matter where
I’ll be watching you
I'll be stalking you

You become aware
The path leads to nowhere
A state of disrepair
Wallowing in despair
As we’re watching you
As we’re stalking you
From far away
Track Name: Advance
When the tension is high
And the end is nigh
People judging your every move

You’re trying your best
Only to fall like the rest
How will things ever improve?

They’re all counting on you
But there’s nothing you can do
Grief and hatred flow your way

Get your head in the game
Accept none of the blame
Go ahead and make my fucking day

Advance through the darkness of our lifetimes
Odds stacked against us, fight anyway!
We could overcome every single obstacle
Rise up and say “out of my way!”

Time for your light to shine
Shout out “this is fucking mine”
Ambition no one dare abuse

Use every resource
To advance the course
The timebomb is yours to defuse

We were counting on you
But you let us down too
Grief and hatred fill our days
Track Name: When I Fall
Good times are coming to a close
Walk the darkest path I never chose
Grappling with the bars inside my mind
Trying to mend the scars left behind

I tried to be a man, I tried to take a stand
Assured me that I'm never on my own
Now for the first time I stand alone

And when I fall
Will I hear your call?
When I look around
And listen for the sound
Will you be there
To prove you really care?
Where will you be
If you’re truly there for me?

Though I see through these open doors
Still I combat my internal wars
Struggling in a cage of my design
Troubling urges rage as I'm confined

Searching for the shore, trying to expose the core
Once again with darkness on the rise
Everything around me slowly dies
Track Name: The World Belongs To Us
Look around at the world today
Our precious home withers in decay
What once was whole is now torn and stained
Do you wonder how it got this way?

The years will come
The years will go
Kingdoms rise and fall
The time has come to take control
The world belongs to us

Long ago, a choice was made
The few would rule, the rest obey
Now we are taught how to behave
Don't question why, and don't complain

A single drop of water becomes a mighty fall
People of the earth
The world belongs to us

Now it's time to demonstrate
That you and I can make history
Tear down the walls that separate
To make us weak and keep us afraid
Track Name: This Too Shall Pass
This air’s too still for me
To hide from all the sun
The days mutated your god-given
A process has begun
Now every day is built on fear
A mountain of our doubt
And the experts say its here to stay
And refuse to cut it out

This too shall pass
Whether its a decade or a day
Right from the start
I've been here and I will stay
It spins us round and round
And grinds us down into the ground
But you're still here and holding fast
And I'm here to remind you
This too shall pass

It only takes one cell to change
One bond inside to break
And from the ashes of your damage
A quiet killer wakes
Now every time it multiplies
It takes another day
It crowds everything you are
And steals my joy away

And all the tests
Wont take your best
So wipe your tears away
And all the pain
Becomes the same
So live another day

Don’t walk away from this
Just bite your tongue
And make a fist
These days will not be your last
‘Cause I’m here to remind you
This too shall pass
