Undergroundhero 70's classic rock seems to be something that many musicians favor in Sweden. While underground music scenes seem stagnant in some places, the Swedish have a way of keeping their scene alive longer, but also seem to make it sound better!

Amaxa are another great band from Sweden, whose classic rock influences are interwoven into their brand of bluesy stoner rock. For those of you who like stoner rock, the sound of Sweden is unmatched! Amaxa is another example to hear why.

Track Name: Final Escape
FINAL ESCAPE
You whisper something in my ear
I think it’s to much to handle
You want to push me in your own
direction
I feel run over by a heavy truck
I hear the voices in the street
I see the shape of someone
I try to tell you that I have to
get out there
I’m gettin out I’m breaking free
CHORUS
I have to work undercover
Hiding from madness
Fighting the sadness
Leaving this world of deception
Wheelin’ and dealin’
Reelin’ that feelin’
I have to work undercover
Hiding from madness
Fighting the sadness
Brightness in the night
A different light
A different sight
Different sight
You’re writing something in my brain
You are twisting my vision
You try to turn out the light in my
light house
You make the ocean throw her waves
at me
I hear the voices in the street
I see the shape of someone
I try to tell you that I have to
get out there
I’m gettin out I’m breaking free
CHORUS
What is wrong with you
What is wrong with you
CHORUS
Track Name: Elusive
ELUSIVE
You don’t hear me or anyone else
I don’t know what you want but I,
I know that I can’t help... no no
you, you’re fooling yourself
I dont know how, I don’t know why
but how is it possible to know
You got your own view
you throw your own dice
but it’s time to understand yeah,
it’s time to realize
no one cares, you’re on your own
CHORUS
Think what you want
but I’m sure you know
Say what you want
but I know you know
Your stupid thoughts
ignore them please
it’s all in your head
Think what you want
but I’m sure you know
Say what you want but
I know you know
Your stupid thoughts
ignore them please
just let them go
Coming soon middle age
you’re soon an old man
Life so far has been to easy and
now it’s time to pay... no no
you, you’re out of your mind
You don’t know how
you don’t know why
but how could you
possibly not know
Think about the future
about making a change
Make you plans carefully
make them thoughtfully yeah
You better start now
before it’s too late
CHORUS
Track Name: Shooting Star
SHOOTING STAR
Once I had a dream that I
held on to
Thoughts were bright and a
star was born and you said
Better believe it now
Better believe in yourself
´cause it’s true
Well you know that it’s true now
You know that it’s true
I believed that I was
on my way
Filled with hope and promises
I trusted you when you said
Better believe it now
Better believe in yourself
´cause it’s true
Well you know that it’s true now
you know that it’s true
CHORUS
Right on from the start
you tore my world apart
What did I ever do to you
All those aching days
to much that I had to face
What did I ever do to you
That’s when I start to muse
I got to hunt that feeling
until I know it’s true
Then it’s hard to fuse
I better scream it out,
scream it out
Time to face the truth
You got me on the run
you got me you know my name...
CHORUS
Track Name: Don´t Feed
DON’T FEED
They speak of love and yet there’s
violence in the air
Because of something they can see
everywhere
One blames another when they’ve
done their killing deeds
And then they tell us that they’re
just what we need
Why speak against them when
they refuse to hear
You cannot listen when you
build your love on fear
Faith in eternity
Humans and vanity
Trust in reality
And don’t let them
feed your head with lies...
This is for all believers let’s
invite them in
Come and partake in all of
natures deadly sin
It’s been around since the
beginning of all days
And yet you cannot see it through
your faithful haze
It may seem farfetched but you just
need to look
You cannot justify it all with one
book
Faith in eternity
Humans and vanity
Trust in reality
And don’t let them
feed your head with lies...
There is a moral choice in
every human being
We don’t need prophets now to tell
us of their dreams
It’s time for better things
it’s time to be aware
And find the wonderness of
life everywhere...
Track Name: Welcome in Sanity
WELCOME IN SANITY
One more round he said and I said OK
We don’t have to grow up anyway
Way past midnight feeling
young and clever
Ready for this mornings
next endevaour
Don’t ask me how
Don’t stop me
Now we’re happy no thoughts
of tomorrow
My mind’s traveling
away from sorrow
Don’t ask me how
Don’t stop me
CHORUS
The solution is inside me
The only thing left that defines me
The solution is inside me
Welcome in sanity
Once I’m under there’s no
way to surface
making choices without cause
or purpose
Now is what I will regret tomorrow
But I don’t care cause I’m
feeling hollow
Don’t ask me how
Don’t stop me
CHORUS
I feel strong
Do not try to change me
Holdin’ on
Everything must stay the same
Same old song
Repeating and repeating itself
Living on
Being true to myself and my name...
CHORUS
The solution is inside me
The solution is inside me
Desillusion is inside me
Welcome insanity
Track Name: The Heartache of Philip Marlowe
THE HEARTACHE OF PHILIP MARLOWE
Browsing through the archives
I am chasing the truth
Files with information
Rollin’ in
As I decipher your stories
Your lies will be revealed
Keep on rollin’, keep on rollin’
CHORUS
Help me stop the shapes
from dancing in my mind
Fighting visions of the days
when you were kind
Watching hope sails down
the hope sails down the stream
Going to hunt down another dream
The fingerprints are glowing
Forms a map of your deeds
Lies no longer working
Goin’ down
Have your date with the hangman
Caress the guillotine
Goin’ down down, goin’ down down
CHORUS
CHORUS
Track Name: Demands
DEMANDS
They’ve got a lot of demands
that’s all I hear
Does anybody have a chance I
haven’t heard
How can I know
just what they want from me
How can I grow when I’m not to know
just what they want
I’ve been living a whole year
without a dime
Poverty has now become my pear and
we pass the time
If you want to play the game
you’ve got to know their rules
No matter what you say
you know your bound to lose
CHORUS
I hear my self saying everything
I’ve got to be on top of the world
And no one knows better than me
I’m just an ordinary guy
They’ve got a lot of demands
that’s all I hear
Does anybody have a chance
I haven’t heard
How can I know
just what they want from me
How can I grow when I’m not to know
just what they want
CHORUS
Track Name: Afterglow
AFTERGLOW
I know I should be in pain now
Everything around me is falling apart
But somehow I’m smiling like I’m
happy
I’m about as logical as life
We have a life together that we do
not share
It’s like we live as one
completely unaware
We’re taking different roads and no
one is to blame
I guess the good news is that
nothing stays the same
I am tired of this destructive
romance
All these endless games and
bad charades
Some were well played others built
on feelings
Love can die and be replaced by us
I would like to save some precious
memories
I know that you want to have them too
We can still recall the first I
love you
said to one another being true
We had a life together but now we
are free
It took so many years and now that
we can see
We don’t know where to go but that
is quite ok
We used to be together what more
can I say...
