Kapitate

BandRockAlternative

Not a band where each song blends into one or digs up what was laid to rest in the 70s. With political themes below the surface or thrust in your face, songs of lament, anger, happiness, epic tales and more it both moves and provokes thought, depending on from which angle you attack it!!

Biography

We have varied combined influences that include but are not limited to (in no particular order): Soundgarden, Metallica, Faith No More, The Offspring, Joe Satriani, Dead Kennedys, Alice in Chains, Slayer, Gary Moore, System of a Down, Rage Against the Machine.

We aren't p@^%ed off at our parents and don't need to enlist the help of this that and the other 'featured' artists - no shout-outs required, we do it ourselves!

Lyrics

Greener

Written By: Niels Mosegaard

A chill of resignation grips me tonight,
Can't shake the feeling that something ain't right
I've come out from the frying pan and into the fire,
The only thing I'm missing is the prison attire...

Etched in my mind how I fled / It tore strips from me and I bled
As I cast off from the old / in search of the new...

Maybe I should have kissed that knife,
But I chose to charge on through the strife / All I wanted was a better life than the one supplied,
I grin and bear it but I can't pretend,
Thought I'd start healing at my journey's end / But I'm no more than money to spend on a free ride,
The grass sure don't seem greener...

My friends gave in just the other day,
Empty shells of what once was as the light drained away,
Hope's flame no longer burning,
Their stomachs only churning,
Broken people stare right through me / To look you'd think they never knew me

Had to leave them behind,
To restore my faith in mankind,
But now that I'm here, I even question myself...

Having rarely seen a day of peace / carved in our faces many a crease
Where idle dreams and fate's caprice never coincide
Such a frightening thing to flee a life of fear / and the price we paid for freedom was dear,
They said we could wipe the slate clean here but they must have lied - they said the grass would be greener on the other

side...

No I wasn't hoping for hot spas,
I never expected five stars,
But to watch the sun set behind bars, oh it hurts my pride / The grass sure don't seem greener...
Grass sure don't seem greener on the other side... grass sure don't seem greener...

I've Got Nothing

Written By: Niels Mosegaard

Things hardly ever go as planned
My wish is nobody's command
And words become a piercing shard
To those who dare to lower their guard...

I've got nothing / yeah I've got nothing to say to you
Next to nothing / I ain't got nothing to say to you
Contemplate it / that I've got nothing to say to you
I've got nothing / I ain't got nothing to say to you - I ain't got nothing to say to you

I see you've started something new
And that I never ever knew
We must have wanted different things
To me that very thought still stings...

I've got nothing / yeah I've got nothing to say to you
Next to nothing / I ain't got nothing to say to you
Contemplate it / that I've got nothing to say to you
I've got nothing / I ain't got nothing to say to you - I ain't got nothing to say to you

Let me bury (bury) my dead feelings in the earth
Hollow cherry (cherry) bled stone dry of all its worth
Chiseled letter (letter) - lasting monument to pain
When I'm better (better) - you might hear from me again

Sleepless nights baby, sleepless nights
Restless nights oh baby, restless nights
Sleepless nights baby, sleepless nights
Restless nights oh baby, restless nights and now you're gone...

I've got nothing / yeah I've got nothing to say to you
Next to nothing / I ain't got nothing to say to you
Contemplate it / that I've got nothing to say to you
I've got nothing / I ain't got nothing to say to you - I ain't got nothing to say to you

I ain't got nothing to say to you
I ain't got nothing to say to you
I ain't got nothing to say to you
I ain't got nothing to say to you

I ain't got nothing to say to you
I ain't got nothing to say to you
I ain't got nothing to say to you
I ain't got nothing to say to you - I ain't got nothing to say to you

Gratify Me

Written By: Niels Mosegaard

Preoccupation, morbid fixation
Yesterday's fiction, latest addiction

Out from nowhere the apparition / The neverending proposition
Wearing down my opposition / daring me to take a bite

Tossing turning sweating shaking / I close my eyes but still lie waking / Pressing hard and I feel I'm breaking

Got to let it out tonight...

Go on and gratify me, satisfy me
Give me anything my soul will buy me
Gratify me, satisfy me

Gratify me, satisfy me
Give me whatever my soul will buy me
Gratify me, satisfy me

Constant temptation, boiling frustration
Forsaken havens, ten thousand ravens

Round the corner the apparition The neverending proposition
Pounding me into submission / dazzling me with blinding light

Tossing turning sweating shaking / I close my eyes but still lie waking /pressing hard and I feel I'm breaking
Got to let it loose tonight...

Go on and gratify me, satisfy me
Give me anything my soul will buy me
Gratify me, satisfy me

Gratify me, satisfy me
Give me whatever my soul will buy me
Gratify me, satisfy me

Gratify me, satisfy me
Give me anything my soul will buy me
Gratify me, satisfy me

Gratify me, satisfy me
Give me whatever my soul will buy me
Gratify me, satisfy me

Gratify me, satisfy me
Give me anything my soul will buy me
Gratify me, satisfy me

Gratify me, satisfy me
Give me whatever my soul will buy me
Gratify me, satisfy me
