Wake up Fall from the skies And wake up The fire in your eyes Though the storm will surely be set free We'll keep ours hearts as steady as can be Hiding from the thunder Shaking all around Tearing me asunder Breaking us down Running from the current Made by our lies Wishing that we weren't Bound by our pride I'll never believe that we want to see I'll never believe that we will be We'll be never be free, if we are but cowards and liars So sick and so tired of all of it Of fear and the lies, we hide And as we succumb, we're coming undone, feeding the lions Words so faint and cold That we claim with bitter plight Ask what do we hold Is it fear or is it might? Pledge with our blood We promise what's true is right We break the vows we told And set the world alight Promise benediction Never do we see We're causing the affliction Bending our knees The weight of our words falling way short and light Like drops falling down from our withering skies We hide and we cower behind our disguise Pretending we're sending the scales from our eyes Setting truth aside Shatter our vows and the words that we write Breaking like Rings of Saturn Crumbling beneath all the weight of our lies tonight Shatter our vows and the words that we write Breaking like Rings of Saturn Never we see what we're leaving behind tonight

You are the one controlling us When we're a little indecisive You dwell in the back of every mind In every being that's alive And most people never know how big a part Of them you really are I'll let you know right fucking now That I am onto your plan Come let me in inside your mind Your past will echo in my perfect redesign Feel it in your eyes and in your mind You are about to implode Be torn from within and ripped to shreds By an evil from hell Come let me in inside your mind Your past will echo in my perfect redesign You will be guided By the uninvited Remember the battle line between good and evil Runs through the heart of every man It's coming from another world And it's pulling us down to its lair

Rise 02:56
Each and every day you're away You keep stirring my mind I'm haunted by your face, by your grace By the plans and the dreams we left behind Wasted all my time, I was blind Wishing that you were here, with me Abused but I won't lose, I refuse Wasn't born to give up, but to be free You (Get up, step up, rise up) (Get up, step up, rise up) We were set to sail Through the gale, to the sunlight We had it all, now it's gone But I will rise again Yeah, yeah, yeah I'm trying to forget, to reset Let the scars on my soul Come undone I'm ready to deface, to erase To incinerate all and overcome You (Get up, step up, rise up) (Get up, step up, rise up) We were set to sail Through the gale, to the sunlight We had it all, now it's gone But I will rise again Yeah, yeah, yeah Each and every day you're away You keep stirring my mind We were set to sail Through the gale, to the sunlight Yes we had it all, now it's gone But I will rise again Yeah, yeah, yeah Yes I will rise again, Again, again Yes I will rise again

She told me to go To pack up my things and leave tonight To never look back And never to ask what all went wrong Got nothing explained And no indication of what I'd done I don't understand She told me she loved me all along Without her I'm not the man I wanna be I've built myself on the dreams that we had I'll break apart if I won't ever see Her pretty eyes in the morning sunlight Falling down, to the ground She told me I was everything she wanted in life But suddenly she changed her mind And doesn't wanna tell me why I try to be strong But I cannot hide it anymore The pain in my heart Is stronger than anything before I'm losing myself Becoming the smallest man alive She stands in the door Says her goodbyes and rolls her eyes Without her I'm not the man I wanna be I've built myself on the dreams that we had I'll break apart if I won't ever see Her pretty eyes in the morning sunlight Falling down, to the ground She told me I was everything she wanted in life But suddenly she changed her mind And doesn't wanna tell me why I'm lying awake Feeling her presence all the time I cannot escape Surrendering to the paradigm Of deceit I'm not the man I wanna be I've built myself on the dreams that we had I'll break apart if I won't ever see Her pretty eyes in the morning sunlight Falling down, to the ground She told me I was everything she wanted in life But suddenly she changed her mind And doesn't wanna tell me why

All for You 03:03
I see a wasteland behind you I know we're wasting, we waste away Boasting of all that you undo You're falling, you're falling into disgrace But do you ever think of where we came from? And what our hearts are for? Oh, it's all for you And the things you do Yeah, It's all for you And the things you do So put your faith in your money You bury all that you can yeah But tell me, when you sleep, are you free Or do you, or do you, feel despair? Cause you never think of all that came before And what will follow now And you wanna stay young And you wanna bear witness You better slit your tongue You better stay and bear witness It all starts right here Fearlessly wasting away
6.
Untamed 03:52
Cause fear will never take us Give us up, or break us Cut us down to size and conform And though they will try to force us Dumb us down and make us Swallow up the lies that they form We won't be held down Our voices won't be tamed It's raining and I know we're tired But we will break ground Our flames can't be contained So don't give it up, don't give it up So raise your light Into the skies tonight Know that we'll be allright And keep hope alive Until we see the morning light And greed is how they trap us So in love with our lust They sell us shocks Prescriptions drugs To keep us bound But we're dreaming of a new dawn Sights are set on Burning it all to the ground We won't be held down Our fury in refrain It's dark out and I know we're tired Our fire won't be put out A new world we'll proclaim The smallest spark will claim the world Raise your light Into the skies tonight Know that we'll be allright Steady and bright We're aiming for something higher Raise your light Cut through the cold dark night Come set your soul alight And keep hope alive Until we see the morning light We'll resist and the world will be won We won't let you change our ways We'll rise and we'll number your days The morning shall free the untamed

Condemned 05:06
Coming back from a tormenting dream Grasping for air, paralyzed on the floor Trying to reach out, in darkness around Screaming won't help me escape Be patient, soon you will see my face Hear the sound of my demise Dripping with fear in the chambers of the condemned where no one ever survives You're condemned Flip the switch to the lights on the wall I'm finding myself trapped in a room of glass Broken to pieces, flustered and dazed Prayers won't help me today I'll make you wish you were never born Hear the sound of my demise Dripping with fear in the chambers of the condemned where no one ever survives Condemned Condemned Condemned Condemned Something enters the room where I lie Is it for real, have I become insane? Can't stop laughing, I'll never forgive After the things that you did Now hold on, I'll find my favorite toy Hear the sound of my demise Dripping with fear in the chambers of the condemned where I'll be taking your life (Hear the sound of my demise) Dripping with fear in the chambers of the condemned where no one ever survives You're condemned
8.
Bed of Nails 04:01
Where are you? You've been gone for millions of years People say that I'm chasing for a ghost (Chasing a ghost) Through the fire I fell Into the arms of ashes What have I done? She was the chosen one Will I ever be strong enough (Shake of the lies) Divided my soul in two I gave it all up to be The best one for you and me But somewhere I lost my self-conscience And forgot everyone but myself See her face It is everywhere I'm looking Hear her voice From the start of every day (Cannot escape) Echoes ring in my mind I don't know what to do I cannot escape I've kept the pain awake For so long it's corrupted me (Taking my life) Divided my soul in two I gave it all up to be The best one for you and me But somewhere I lost my self-conscience And forgot everyone but myself I gave it all up to be The best one for you and me But somewhere I killed your emotions When I drifted too far away I gave it all up to be The best one for you and me But somewhere I lost my self-conscience As I drifted too far away (Away) I gave it all up to be (To be) Alive in this misery (Misery) Forsaken and chained to a burning Bed of nails leaving no one alive
9.
Washed Away 04:45
Hey you I think it's time to let go Now is the time to cut through Strings on your wings that bind you Tear at the seams as time goes On and we all give in to Lies that we all hold on to Watch them turn into you Just see it through It will never be too late and it won't be just you When your head is under water and it's seeping through Like the waves crashing over your heart I've waited for all my life Waiting for a sign To fall or to climb the sky I won't know if I never try Miles above the sea Or will the waters rise over me Knowing all I could be No tide will ever take me Stay and Don't let it wash away Break from the current's sway Breaking into cascades You'll see it through As you're standing on the edge And you will feel it too Throw your caution to the wind And then yourself too Feel the waves crashing under your heart Soaring into the skies No wave will ever break me Been waiting for all my life Waiting for my time To climb and soar through the skies I won't know if I never try Climbing unspoken dreams Wishing to know what impossible means Knowing all I could be No fear or pain will fade me
10.
Tempest 05:23
And we feel the fury Raging on the sea Oh, and we roam Far from home And grit is not all fear would be As the depths beckon me Calling me down Falling down To breathe or to drown Say my name Ocean waves With deadly grace they form Through the night Will we find A lighthouse in the storm And there is beauty in the gale Its fateful breath, a deadly claim And there are those for whom we weep In dreadful peace within the deep Calling me down Falling down To never be found The open water staring back at me Is all that I can see A lonely man against the sea Lifts his anchor to be free With dread and reverence, you will see That none shall rule or master me It takes me to the deep Say my name Tell me that you feel the same A light will soon take form Through the night, as we Try to find A lighthouse in the storm The open water paralyzes me But it will set me free And there is beauty in the gale It's fateful breath, a deadly claim And there are those for whom we weep In dreadful peace within the deep

She's standing on a bridge in silence full of fear Haunted by the emptiness that drove her here They scarred her heart, cut her soul in two, pushing her aside Betrayed, afraid, invisible but no enough to hide Fight them off, don't let them win Come on home, do not give in I know that it is hard, to see the light Don't let go, don't say goodbye tonight They're always there inside her mind to bring her down Hiding in the shadows making not a sound They stole her dreams, tore em all apart before her eyes Condemned, descent, the feeling when you know your heart divides Fight them off, don't let them win Come on home, do not give in I know that it is hard, to see the light Don't let go, don't say goodbye tonight Fight them off, don't let them win Come on home, do not give in I know that it is hard, to see the light Don't let go, don't say goodbye tonight

about

DEFECTO’s dive into the metal scene has been fast and even frantic at times, having embarked on several tours, Open Airs, and festivals appearances these last four years. These include support for RAMMSTEIN and METALLICA, performances at Copenhell, RockFest in Finland and much more. Few metal bands in Denmark have achieved such progress in such a short amount of time.

The band is now set to release their next album DUALITY. Taking inspiration in the duality of life, the band uses their sonic diversity to create a seamless mix including both the explosive and the atmospheric. DUALITY is the combination of light and dark, and the culmination of what DEFECTO stands for.

DUALITY is set for a release in the fall of 2020.
