Relations in shambles.
Your views on society
are rotten like mine.

Time just can't come back,
what's done is done, you know inside.
We walked through a narrow aisle,
a restless path, which no one really chose.

We built plenty of useless things,
they controlled us.
We grew strong, billions, flooded everywhere,
how could we do otherwise.

But this progress brought us far away,
we reached new worlds to explore, where to settle down.
Just like parasites, leeches who suck life.
Just like parasites, leeches who suck, everything.

We ripped their souls by deception,
it was enough to show our warmth.
In the end our greed led us to crystallize more
and more betrayed by welfare illusion.

We ran fast for centuries,
through a ceaseless rush, the ego disappeared.

I will fade.

At the end of time the path is clear,
everything we have done is part of our own being.

Relations in shambles.
Your views on society
are rotten like mine.

We, like growing trees.
aiming up high.
A sky I’ve never seen.

We are sprawling seaweed.
All around.
A sea I’ve never seen.

We, grass, shrubs and trees,
rooted to ground.
An Earth I've never seen.

Sketches in my mind
an Earth already seen.

In our minds designs
this Earth has always been.

INSTAR is the band's first LP, released in 2018. It and contains the darkest truths whose the humanity will be doomed.
Distress, discomfort and inertia.

Built-in Obsolescence is now exploring darker and heavier sounds, getting closer to the post-metal scene.
