about

"The enemy dies relaxed" is the outcome of an almost five year process, through which the Corfiot quartet molded a personal sound through friction and co-operation. The album was recorded in a home studio based in an old cottage in the country side of Corfu Island between 2010 and 2013. A period that the band had managed to maintain a stable membership and this reflects in the atmosphere of the entire album.

Track Name: Get Back In The Box
The eye that could lie
lives all around you
it has been there
but then from time to time
you read between the lines
your questions fair

I cause I have tried to cross that line
the marks remain
since you forget you spend your time in empty beds

And for real, it is true. you don't know what to do
get back in the box

The eye is a spy
holds every corner of your street
of your dream
you watch it multiply
you are willing to defy
the gifts it brings

I cause I have tried to cross that line
the marks remain
since you forget you spend your time in empty beds
Track Name: Follow The Sun
Follow the sun, follow the sun
the one
light is changing, it's rearranging

Smells like secret deep beneath the ground
It's a treasure waiting to be found
neat and thorough, wet and hollow

I lost everything and more than once
it's like trying your best to surpass
the old circle, the new threshold

I hold my breath as young death spins a bony dice
Sometimes you have to say things twice
this repetition of an error turns you wise
sometimes you have to keep it low
as you go down below
Track Name: Reality Check
You numb my lips
and use my time
you approach from the other side

you steal my stale bread
you occupy by bed
you fill up my head

As I refuse to see
the nature of the things
enforced upon me

I drive my car
covered with tar
but it won't go that far

And I don't see how things always get me by surprise
It's a reality I find it hard to realize
all I know
I don't know....

I walk alone
just like a stone that cracks
forgotten in the sand

and on this chessboard
that we stand
we seem oblivious to the fact

this land can hold no more
this house can shelter no
blind eyed hope

I drive my car
covered with tar
but it won't go that far

And I don't see how things always get me by surprise
It's a reality I find it hard to realize
all I know
I don't know.
Track Name: The Years
Twisting around in my sheets
I can’t get no sleep
Cause the worries in my head
They throw a party

Are the years that lie ahead?
A dead end maze
Will we ever find our voice?
In this deep haze

All I see is bleak
Filtered through me
Genocide seems great
When you’re away and safe
Track Name: My Own Fragments
Within a sphere so private lone
I peak the fragments of my own
I count the days I count the years
I calculate all my fears

All the lies that you told me
are ringing in my head again
and what is worth and what is left
will stay the same again

It's only a fragment of your time
Track Name: Angels In Disguise
Maybe it's time
to take that leap of faith and dive
from height strange to mankind

as the wind blows
it fills my mind it moves my soul
I hear the calling through my bones

And maybe we'll find a way
brighter the light each day
always it's hard to stay back

And as we fly
we are forming shapes in the sky
we look like angels in disguise

The way is clear
cerebral maps within our tears
farewell my beauty one more time

We keep secrets under our wings
we are forming shapes in the dark
we have business to take care of
circles must remain intact
we keep secrets within our dreams
we look like angels in disguise
we hold the skies
Track Name: You Say You May
solid ground and stone
marrow of the bone
naked is the truth your eyes betray

search for sanctuary
in the bathtub stay
all day
till the water soaks your soul

you say you may
get me out of despair
I might stay
if you rock my armchair
I say I play
every night and day
only the blind couldn't see


Stella just had a plan
how to defeat the clan

eyebrows raising all around

but the constituency
was inconsistently happy
and despite that
raise your arms and follow the workings of the sun
being emotionally coiled only reverses the fact

sneering to philistines
is a perpetual habit
that nourishes the centre of this world

but from that scaffold on
you find it hard
to hold on to anything
except a young girl's wardrobe

you say you may
get me out of despair
Imight stay
if you rock my armchair
I say I play
every night and day
only the blind couldn't see
Track Name: Misplaced
In the night that seems always to belong to someone else
I have seen what you don't see
countless stars to shine my way in foreign lands
so I think there's some light in the end

Cause I know there's a place
we can be misplaced
there's always some more time
to drive us of our mind
you seem to master the way
to blow it all away
a million time and now you start again somehow

In the day that escapes like water out of my hands
I don't see what you still see
very little to syncopate with my dying hard
but I feel there's more light
in the end

you seem to have it well
to have us both unwell
I won't give in to that
I’ll take you to the start
Track Name: The Tide
Within a world made of glass
escape seems to be an ongoing task
and all the things you still possess
they form inside you a fortress of regret

within a world made of stone
your moments can't even be born
and all the things you still possess
they form inside you a castle of regret

cause first you let go
and then shape time
I wonder if it's worth it
to survive the tide
and watch from an alcove the burning forest
raging human eyes

and it is not surprise
that the girls remained
dry and profane
keeping to their vows
and so the robin and the sparrow
flight high and flight far

They all know there is a problem
it has been going for so long
it's going on and on
they all say there is problem
it has been going for so long
Track Name: Stockholm Syndrome
How many times a day
you have to through that bucket away
I wonder why you do it

You stay in the shade
you say it's all O.K
but in the end there's nothing new

like a cane in the field you stand alone

and now you are not alone
you have a swarm in your fur
a company o million men
you hide in my sleeve
you're playing hard to please
and when in heat
you stay alone

like a cane in the field you stand alone
