about

Nails was inspired by relationship issues and the need to strive for something more. You make the decision and have to live with the consequences. But did you actually make that choice? Are you sure it wasn't made for you?
In a more literal sense, the lyrics reflect current world events where people really were forced into a certain course of action through no choice of their own.

Track Name: Nails
The sky's alight – tonight
Set on fire to burn
I don't recognise this place anymore
I don't know where to turn

You need the simple things
Get out before your part of the scenery
Take every day just as it comes
I guess you're made of nails

There's pain in the city
Cut right though it's heart and soul
We paid the price, to live this life
But who is really in control?

You need the simple things
Get out before your part of the scenery
Take every day just as it comes
I guess you're made of nails
