Wiki

General

It was the first song written by the band somewhere in the autumn of 2015. A demo teaser version was released to YouTube on René's channel 'wullemaha'.

Behind the lyrics

Together with 'Once more into the Fray' and 'Rise' the songs build a trilogy in the original 'The Grey' saga. 'The Grey' are metaphorically the same as higher-ups taking advantage of conform people who get grey and colorless lives and live according to the rules of society and forget who they are as a result.
In the song, a fictional character is walking through a city seeing 'brainwashed' or empty faces of workaholics, a sight we can see in our everyday life all the time. The character is infuriated by this, as seen in the line 'I clench my fists in hatred', in fact the fictional character can be seen as a ray of hope in a hopeless world as he sees through the schemes of modern society.

Lyrics

I walk these concrete places,
Seeing brainwashed faces,
The natural selection's gone,
Too much damage to be undone

I clench my fists in hatred,
Nothing left that's sacred,
They are blind, gutless fools,
Slaves to their worthless rules

Servants of the grey!
I pity thee!
Blind, broken fools,
Inferior tools!

Servants of the grey!
I pity thee,
Blind, broken fools,
Inferior tools!

I roam these filthy streets,
Filled with mindless sheep,
Stumbling through lives so hollow,
Searching for a shepherd to follow

A sneer distorts my face,
No sense in this place,
A broken people near their fall,
Unknowing, onwords they crawl

Servants of the grey,
I pity thee,
Blind, broken fools,
Inferior tools

Servants of the grey,
I pity thee,
Blind, broken fools,
Inferior tools
