The Hunt

Lyrics + vocal arrangement : Sean Lang

Music composed by : Roy Goldschmitz

Song produced (incl. samples & effects) by : André C. Kalipke

André : The first and only "cooperation" between Roy and me, even if the actual song had already been completed when we came up with the idea of adding a few samples to the song.

Sean : Roy composed the instrumental to this track in 4-5/92. We recorded it twice with vocals in 7/92 (including this recording). We did a different version of it in 11/92 (see track 14).

(Please also read the author comments of "The Band Introduces Itself" (vocal and recording quality, etc.)...). Lyrics - see below.


All has turned quiet down in the city centre

The darkness around there - it dares you to enter

The perilous world that's ought to be found there

Where the days turn to night and the rules are all unfair

The last light flickers out in the evening sky

You've got no time left now to ask yourself just why

Cause the shadows are falling down on the inner city

The hunt has begun now - they won't take any pity

The footsteps behind you march faster and faster

Ever nearer approaching - don't you know what they're after?

The hour of reckoning - it will all come too soon

When the goodness inside you prepares to meet its doom

The hunt has begun - it's time to run

No time to be scared - you'd better beware

Shadows are limping somewhere beside

The fear of defeat still burning inside

You're so helpless now - the worst being of all

Robs your soul and steals your pride

You cry out in vain - express your pain

As slowly you seem to just go insane

No reason to question the motives they have

The best thing to do is run and hide

Don't fall behind now - they'll get you somehow

And give you reasons to praise and abide

While people enraged - what's it all about?

As the victims loudly scream and shout

The violent sounds have all but died down

You now seem to reach some escape somehow

But don't hold your breath and don't count to ten

Because before you know it, it will all start again

The hunt has begun - it's time to run

No time to be scared - you'd better beware

The cycle goes on - the time is prolonged

It turns into a vicious circle

What if they draw near? Don't you have the fear

You won't get over the next hurdle?

The cycle goes on - the time is prolonged

It turns into a vicious circle

Your time has run out - can't you hear the shouts?

I think I hear the footsteps coming
