about

'Circle of Destruction is the first single from the upcoming album 'Center of the Universe'
The 70’s inspired protest song ‘Circle of Destruction’ is inspired by the Ukraine war and people searching a new life in other countries than their own, with the lyrics “Standing at the border with a white flag in your hand, will the peace that we dreamed of ever come?”.

lyrics

Standing at the border
With a white flag in your hand will the peace that we dreamed of ever come
There’s an inherent fault in all of us
The urge to destroy is born in some

What they can’t build up
They will tear down
And the circle of destruction has begun
Standing at the border
With a white flag in your hand will the peace that we dreamed of ever come

Standing at the border
Waiting for their turn
For a chance of the peace they’ve come to find
Walking through the desert
Swimming through the sea
Always missing everyone that’s left behind

What we can’t build up
We will tear down
And the circle of destruction has begun
Standing at the border
Waiting for their turn
For a chance of the peace they’ve come to find

If we can’t be first
If we cannot win
There’s a fear and there’s hate that grows within
Gotta find a way
To to not give in
Together is the only way we’ll win

Standing by the roadside
Waiting for a sign
Will the truth that you’ve looked for ever come
The billboards tell you one thing
But you can’t make up your mind
There’s an urge to deceive that’s born in some

What we can’t build up
We will tear down
And the circle of destruction has begun
Standing by the roadside
Waiting for a sign
Will the truth that you’ve looked for ever come

If we can’t be first
If we cannot win
There’s a fear and there’s hate that grows within
Gotta find a way
To to not give in
Together is the only way we’ll win.

Standing at the border
With a white flag in your hand will the peace that we dreamed of ever come

about

Sofia Talvik Gothenburg, Sweden

She is a veteran performer with 8 original full length albums as well as numerous EPs, singles and tours behind her. ... more
