It’s not always evident what is strength and what is weakness. In the blinding light of conformity, the inner darkness is your only hope.

“GOING HUNTING” LYRICS
In the stillness of dim lit insomnia,
he discovers his own body
Whisper names in the pillowcase
It’s almost like he had somebody
It’s ok, I didn’t want to go out tonight anyway
I stay right here

The world is out of reach,
for a body under siege,
by a foreign mind implanted in a being,
that used to be so innocent
Is this a cell,
or my bedroom? Who can tell,
what secrets lie within this boy’s drawer
A reason for his punishment

If I only had a friend like you
If I only had a friend like you
If I only had a friend like you
If I only had a friend like you

What to do when no one’s watching
Anything else means nothing
When the world outside comes knocking
We are going hunting
What to do when no one’s watching
Anything else means nothing
When the world outside comes knocking
We are going hunting

The world he kept outside,
got a scent of where he hides,
and the skeletons of rats inside his drawer,
are proof that no one’s innocent
What is the way?
Is it mercy? Is it brave,
to let the stones fall down upon the sickly,
or is it simply punishment?

If I only had a friend like you
If I only had a friend like you
If I only had a friend like you
If I only had a friend like you

What to do when no one’s watching
Anything else means nothing
When the world outside comes knocking
We are going hunting
What to do when no one’s watching
Anything else means nothing
When the world outside comes knocking
We are going hunting

Our time has come and gone so stay inside
You have to keep your secrets small
Close your eyes
I hear you whisper through the walls

What’s left for you to do now?
They’ve come to hunt you down
What’s left for you to do now?
They’ve come to hunt you down

What to do when no one’s watching
Anything else means nothing
When the world outside comes knocking
We are going hunting
What to do when no one’s watching
Anything else means nothing
When the world outside comes knocking
We are going hunting

What’s left for you to do now?
They’ve come to hunt you down
What’s left for you to do now?
They’ve come to hunt you down

What to do when no one’s watching
Anything else means nothing
When the world outside comes knocking
We are going hunting
What to do when no one’s watching
Anything else means nothing
When the world outside comes knocking
We are going hunting

  1. Avatar is my GO TO band, Everytime i feel down or life is struggling i plug in Avatar.
    Remember watching them the first time in Karlstad 2007 , at that time they were supporting In Flames

    They were outplaying In Flames that show and since then i’ve lost count on all the times i’ve seen them

    More avatar for the people

  2. I love this one! The music was awesome, Johannes’s vocals were amazing and the video was so interesting. Well done boys!

  3. These guys are underrated. So insanely talented with a huge range of variety… this here is Avatar Country 🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼

  4. We attended the first show to kick off the tour in Albany. People, if you dont have tickets to a show, get them NOW. Not only was the show AMAZING, as always but they had some surprises and the way the opened the show.. lets just say it was captivating, brilliant and unexpected. Loved every minute of it. Bravo Avatar, well done show and welcome back to being a touring band again. You were missed 🖤
