We are running like foals. We are running like foals. You are hiding in the back of me. I’m losing my way. Come back to me. X4 I want you to know. Like how it shows. The higher you up. Lonelier you are.

Looking for the key Lock the body away It’s not the time To set perception free I’ve found the truth But I’m missing the way So how do you feel? The ego inside you is going to betray.

The clouds are dropping into the ocean My heart has fallen apart But I still cannot feel The smoke is spilling out of the window Sunlight goes into my eyes But I still cannot feel The underground is yelling People around are rushing But I still cannot feel My vision has lost its color And time is ticking away But I still cannot feel I’m deceived by my desire For the feelings I don’t care If I can hide……But I’ve never tried

I know it’s not my fault But I fall down to a deep hole I want to see and hear you But all around is just a black hole I want to see and hear you x4 I want to see you see you see you see you I want to hear you hear you hear you hear you x2

I don't know how to forgive, how to forgive, how to forgive, how to See that you are reaching the top, reaching the top, reaching the top of The world I should’ve understood, understood, understood, but I will try my best try my best try my best to break through I know you are trying x2 I know you stand on my way x3 I know you are there for me I don’t know how to forgive, how to forgive, how to forgive, how to I don’t know how to forget, how to forget, how to forget, how to I know you are trying x2 I know you stand on my way x3 I know you are there for me I know you stand on my way x3 I know you are there for me I know you stand on my way x3 I know you stand on the top but I will try my best to break through I know you stand on my way x3 I know you are there for me

I’m sitting here waiting for the sun. Till the day I feel that I won’t. Now I know I’m in your cave. Only to see your shadow in the mist. So many times I’m running in fear. But you hold me back to light my fire. So many times I’m running in fear. I’m not Prometheus and have no holy fire. Help me, help me out of way. Hear me, hear me. X2

We are all the same in the broken time They cut down my head, I don’t even feel the pain We are trapped in the heavy haze In the narrow dark maze, that lead’s down to another world Show me your hands tell me I was wrong They cut down my tongue, I don't even feel the pain We walk through the chaotic town You open the door and find a way to another world You open the door And find a way to They cut my tongue I don’t even feel the pain

about

“Eat or Die” marks the first official full length by Future Orients. The album name does not come from any particular story or experience. Instead, “Eat or Die” simply comes from the band’s collective appreciation for the feelings associated with the phrase. On one hand, it reflects the basic trifles in everyday life, but also considers the gravity of life and death itself. The two ideas take into account questions of life’s most natural struggles, but with an ever present sense of irony.

The album’s neat and succinct nature puts the band member’s chemistry on full display. The nine songs serve as a reflection of the work from the band’s earliest days up until the moments just before recording. While “Running” comes from the earliest stages of the band’s history, “Haze” came to fruition right before their time in the studio. The difference in styles highlights the band’s unceasing growth and development and continuous drive to explore. Future Orients favors strong melodies and smooth progressions, but the music never becomes conventional. They instead find their own unexplored territory to straddle the edges of fierce and strange.

With their debut full length, Future Orients have created a youthful and genuine piece. So as for whether its really time to eat or time to die, this band couldn’t care less.
