AWS describe themselves as a modern metal band with attitude. The band was formed in Budapest in 2006 by Bence Brucker, Dániel Kökényes, Örs Siklósi and Áron Veress when they were just teenagers. Soma Schiszler joined later.

Their music videos often have juxtapositions of images of violence and celebrities in order to bring light to problems that the world faces.

OPINION

There has to be one great rock song in every year’s contest and Hungary certainly does not disappoint with this hardcore rock song. There’s a lot of loud guitars and lots of screaming. ROCK ON!

PREDICTION

I think this song will qualify as there is not really any other songs that can compete with it and the final NEEDS this song in it. It will score a few points but I reckon it will finish near the bottom.

LYRICS

Hungarian

Játsszunk nyílt lapokkal végre:

a hajómnak mennie kell

és itt fog hagyni téged. 

Majd benned él tovább a vérem,
és ha nem adod el, a szíveden a jel,
mi a földről az égig emel.
Viszlát, nyár, most már elkéstél,
mert azt hazudtad, enyém leszel,
de nem jöttél!
Viszlát, álom, köszönöm, hogy eltűntél!
Most már ideje visszakapnom,
amiket elvettél!
Megfáradt ereimben az élet,
tudom, hogy fognál még,
de engedj el már, kérlek. 

Itt van, tépd le belőlem a részed,

és ha nem adod el, a szíveden a jel,

mi a földről az égig emel.

English

Let’s be cruelly honest
my boat has to go
and it will leave you here.
 
My blood will live within you
and if you don’t sell it, the mark is on your heart,
which lifts you up from the ground to the sky.
 
Goodbye summer, you missed me,
’cause you lied that you’ll be mine
but you didn’t come!
 
Goodbye dream, I’m so thankful that you’re gone!
Now it’s time to give me back
what you took away from me!
 
The life has got tired in my veins,
I know that you’d hold (me)
but please, let me go.
 
Here it is, strip your part out of me
and if you don’t sell it, the mark is on your heart,
which lifts you up from the ground to the sky.
