about

A POINT OF PROTEST’s comeback EP ‘Lost Voices’ is a clear statement. They’re not only talking about childhood and growing up, but they’re also taking on the school system, pointing fingers, asking questions and spitting it out. One thing is for sure: their 2,5 year break did not cool them down, on the contrary. They’re angrier than ever, ready to take on the world and make this one count. "This is for all those who doubted us. For those who said we would fail. This is for every single person that looked down on us and never cared to give us a fair chance. Not as a band, not in life."

"This record is dedicated to all those we met along the way, no matter how they affect us nor the nature of our relationship. They made us who we are today and shaped how we see the world."

Track Name: Unease
UNEASE. I am so sorry I cannot express the regret I feel, that runs through my veins. could things have been different? could I have saved you? I really don’t know. I still hear your voice, I still hear their voices somewhere out there screaming my name. could things have been different? could I have saved you? I am afraid of the truth. just know that I am here, wishing you were there, that I am ready to step up and follow my dreams. could things have been different? could I have saved you? because I am still here thanks to you.
Track Name: Lost Voices
LOST VOICES. misunderstood, mistaken for something I am not. just spend one day in my shoes and just take a look. what you see is what you get: generations in distress, ruined lives full of regret. when will you get upset? because I could have been dead. I have spent so many days with the odds against me. trying to be something I cannot be.

can’t win if I give myself away. can’t be what you want me to be. can’t come through if I can’t go all the way. can’t deny I still remember the day: you said I would fail.

you seriously said, without the show of a single emotion, that I would not make it, that I was a total failure destined for the gutter, deserving the shit I get. you really said, like straight to my face: that I was a waste, of your time, your energy. you just gave up on me, never cared to look out for me. but look at me. look at me.

this song is about you, as in fact, things were always about you. I know it was always about you. it was you who could not stand me speaking up, was you who could not handle my questions. should I take for granted just because you demand it? it was you who had to beat me down, just to get inside my head. never to realize I was already beating down myself. though that was probably the only valuable lesson that you have taught me: to question your authority instead of questioning me.

can’t win if I give myself away. can’t be what you want me to be. can’t come through if I can’t go all the way. can’t deny I still remember that day, though we were just kids. we were just kids, we never deserved this, you fucking bitch. and maybe we’d misfit your system and were nothing. never wanted to be like them. we were just kids, we never deserved any of this. we were just kids.
Track Name: Until All
UNTIL ALL. lost. all I had, all I loved. lost. so close to giving up. had to sacrifice the ones I loved. lost, now they’re all. was betrayed by the few I used to trust. biting the dust. came so close to giving up. giving up on love, giving up on us. had to sacrifice until all I loved was lost. until all I loved was lost. until all I loved was lost. until all I loved was lost. until all I loved was lost. until all I loved was lost.
Track Name: Children Of The Clouds
CHILDREN OF THE CLOUDS. where are you at? where are you? when your eyes turn to gaze? when your mind is driven away? stuck in a labyrinth of thoughts. lost somewhere in these coulds. keep them locked in a dream: put your kids on ritalin. wandering around in the sky looking for these figures. wandering around in denial until everything shivers.

taking your voice. taming your heart. playing your mind. there is no way to fight. taking your voice. taming your heart. playing your mind.
there is nowhere to hide.

speak these words you long to speak and keep repeating to yourself: never give in to your fear, never give up on yourself. to break free you must believe. don’t let them throw you around. be what you want to be. it is time to stand your ground, not to fit in but to be free. don’t let anyone ruin your dreams. speak these words you long to speak and keep repeating to yourself: never give in to your fear, never give up on yourself. to the children of the clouds: find your way back down, stand up tall and take back your kin’s crown.

I have been living your lie for too long. floating between ignorance and denial. but you don’t know me, you don’t own me. I have been dreaming of a better life now. I have seen these changes in the clouds, the presence of these darkened skies. following your directives changing my perspectives. I see through your empty lies now. right now. I can see through your empty lies now.
