The Hunt (Hardcore Version)

Lyrics + vocal arrangement: Sean Lang

Music composed by : Roy Goldschmitz

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

André : Unplanned circumstances led to Sean and me spontaneously embracing the situation and recording "The Hunt" a "bit differently" than usual. I think it's very well done. :) This re-recording of Roy's song was made after his departure from the band. So he was never able to hear it, unfortunately.

Sean : This was the result of unexpectedly getting different, unknown sounds when playing back the instrumental track of "The Hunt" (track 05). We decided to go with it and added vocals to this abridged version in 11/92. We also did a new version of "Be Free" (track 02) this way.

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


Everything has turned still 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 are night and the rules are unfair

Last light flickers out upon the evening skyline

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

Cause the shadows fall down on the inner city

The hunt has begun and they won't take no pity

The footsteps behind you - they march faster and faster

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

The reckoning hour - it will all come too soon

The goodness within prepares to meet its doom

The hunt has begun - it's time, it's time to run

No time, no time to be scared - you'd just better beware

Shadows are limping somewhere next to you

The fear of defeat's still burning inside

You're so helpless now - the worst thing 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 only thing left to do is to hide

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

They'll give you reasons to praise and abide

While people enraged - what's it all about?

So many victims give a reeling shout
