about

"Cogito" is a memorable and thought-provoking song that explores the dilemma between living a life of pain or accepting death. It's the most philosophical song of the album, and its name, taken from the famous philosophical proposition "Cogito ergo sum," perfectly encapsulates its central theme.
The song's intro is particularly noteworthy, building up gradually and smoothly in a way that is unlike anything the band has done before. As the song progresses, the music becomes more urgent and intense, with a memorable chorus that emphasizes the emotional weight of the lyrics. The vocals are forceful and emotive, capturing the pain and desperation of the philosophical struggle at the heart of the song.

lyrics

Am I willing to pay the price
For an illusory paradise?
Is eternal existence
Worth the void of affection?
Or could this be, or could this be a new direction?

Chorus
Is there a choice to end this war?
Is freedom something worth fighting for?
We must reject by all means
A prison devoid of hopes and dreams

Am I choosing between a lie
And an utopia in disguise
Is a dreamless slumber
A concept of perfection
Oh this must be, oh this must be my own reflection.

A choice to end this war
A freedom we’re fighting for
We reject by all means
A prison devoid of hopes and dreams
