Intravenous 02:53
2.
In a train along the railway Passing stations all the same Trapped in this routine forever Every day's a yesterday Same old faces, same old stories Rusted hopes and wasted lives Endless clouds keep on rolling Covering the leaden skies Chorus: It's time to brush away the dust & debris off your soul To break away From this place of grey and cold No more useless words and lies No more staring at the wall Time has come to cut the ties Breaking free once and for all Is there any point in waiting When there's nothing left to lose But the grey outside the window And a life inside the noose?
3.
A pale face and blue eyes Thin lips and a voice like ice I'm the dread you won't see twice I'm lurking with no disguise Fear me, you cardboard bitches, I'm gonna smash you off my way I am the kingdom of madness There is no sympathy from me! Chorus: Everyone belongs to me In my minutes of madness Lightning strikes and thunder roars On the heads of these poor whores What is written, so shall it be In my minutes of madness No way back, nowhere to run My madness goes on and on! I'm the hell, I am the blood I see the truth and see when it's not My sight ruins everything I am your god! I am your king Kneel before me, feel my rage There's no escape from my carnage I am all four horsemen in one And I will make you gone
4.
There's something wrong up in the sky 7 years of pouring rain, Years of everlasting grey Rusty thoughts are on my mind Thinking of the sunny days Of that neverlasting May Rain is falling everywhere Flooding valleys, streets and squares Always here and there Rain ruins everything Streets and valleys, hopes and dreams But I'm still waiting for the spring On the factory of rain Another boring day I awake in the shades of grey Stealing my life away On the factory of rain I count the rest of my days Praying to the rays of the sun Here and now and again... On the factory of rain Another boring day I awake in the shades of grey Stealing my life away On the factory of rain I count the rest of my days Praying to the rays of the sun Here and now and again Waiting for the sun to come And I'll see you See you again

Looney Tune 04:27
Got stuck in a maze Time stopped in the middle of these days Mind was off and erased Need some tunes for our minds And explosion in our brains Plug the wires, it's party time! We will never be the same again Chorus: Dancing trees are singing there We don't care, we just don't care Forgotten dreams here Played forever on repeat Sparkling-loud - tons of sound Everybody follows the pulse of the beat Bass'n'drums are beating low Pumping hearts are ready to explode The blow. To the brain. Silver lightning goes through our veins Mermaids are dancing in the snow Wolves are barking at the moon In the eyes of a cocaine-crazy owl Everybody's dancing to this looney tune
7.
Depart 04:43
The sand is running out It's time to face the truth I'm dwelling on the pictures The memories of my youth The smiles I used to see The hands I used to hold... It's time to pack my things And depart into the cold Chorus: Now... my time has come I'm ready to face the facts I'm left here all alone So I'm packing my bags  ... packing my bags ... packing my bags No tears left to cry No sorries, no regrets and no chances to try I'm sailing to the next world drifting away with the wind of spring And everything I've ever felt I'm packing with me Not afraid of the future If tomorrow never comes Not afraid of the future If tomorrow never comes Not afraid of the future If tomorrow never comes Not afraid of the future My tomorrow never come

You coloured my dreams You spoke my name You made me remember myself again It’s you, it’s you You coloured my dreams Let it grow Let it go Let it feel Let it be Just remember, love is free That’s why you don’t belong to me We all need space to be We are so much more than what we are We are free Chorus: You coloured my dreams You spoke my name You made me remember myself again It’s you, it’s you You coloured my dreams Somehow I know Time will tell and show I remember I’m your melody But you still don’t belong to me We all need space to be We’re so much more than what we are We are free

The Screens 04:11
What is flickering in the night With a shimmering brilliant light Shifting minds from black and white To irresistible colours Who's building your own life? And replacing your kids and wife? What glitters like a knife? The source of your honour. Chorus: The screens! Your sensual overdrive The screens! The meaning of your life Instead of medicine The screens! The screens! Don't sit so close The screens! Your daily overdose And all your dreams Here on the screens! Spending time in front of us You deserve a very special trust We really appreciate your lust Growing faster and faster But you are much too slow So you'll never ever know Who is paying for this show And who is your master, moo-ha-ahahahaaaaaa!!!

11.
Through the woods Through the fields and rivers We are coming like a blight A relentless blind force Smashing everything before it Without pity and remorse Chorus: Out of the darkness, towards the silence Invincibly we go Seven billions mighty warriors Shaking their rusty swords Sowing the seeds of destruction We'll wipe this world away What's the price of tomorrow When the end is coming today We are the pride of Nature We are the evolution's crown Tired of our greatness We are going down Seeing no end in the beginning We're drowning in our own blood We are humanity And after us the flood

about

SkyQode is proud to present the third full-length album, "Epik", from the Moscow-based electronic project Requiem4FM!

Formed in 2003, the band quickly gained local attention with their catchy blend of synthpop, techno and rock elements. After releasing two critically acclaimed albums, "kRASH!" (2006) and "Novocaine" (2009), the band went on a prolonged hiatus.

The new album does not only mark Requiem4FM's first full-length release in six years, but also demonstrates the band's impressive growth, both production- and sound-wise.

"Epik" is undoubtedly the band's most diverse and mature record to date, ranging from danceable synthpop tunes to brooding electrorock hymns and featuring exciting collaborations with Roman Ryabtsev (of the Russian synthpop legends Technology), Xavier Morales (of the American futurepop band Ruined Conflict) and the Swedish singer Tess Fries!
