I tried to write it by myself and I'm pretty sure there are errors.
Could someone please listen to this song and tell me what is wrong? ^^

You were born in a world of poverty
Where you live to the end of your days
And you feel all the pains of poverty
Where you live to the end of your days

chorus:
You've got no way out (you've got no way out)
You've got no escape (you've got no escape)
No place to go (no place to go)
It's a bitter fate (it's a bitter fate)
In this walls (in this walls)
All the family escaped (all the family escaped)
There's no place to go (there's no place to go)
It's a bitter fate (it's a bitter fate)

You were born in a world of violence
Where you live to the end of your days
And you feel all the pains of violence
Where you live to the end of your days

[chorus]

You were born in a world of poverty
Where you live to the end of your days
And you feel all the pains of poverty
Where you live to the end of your days

Nice band and song!
I found two lines in your lyrics text which I think are incorrect:

- In this walls (in this walls)--> Beyond these walls
- All the family escaped (all the family escaped)--> All you find is gates (at least this is what I hear plus the fact that in the official video the protagonist tries every single night to figure out the code which unlocks a specific gate in order to escape from the walled city)

This is what I got for the chorus

You've got no way out (got no way out)
Got no escape (got no escape)
No place to go (no place to go)
It's a bitter fate (it's a bitter fate)

Beyond these walls (beyond these walls)
On a funniest gate (on a funniest gate)
There's no place to go (there's no place to go)
It's a bitter fate (it's a bitter fate)

Actually I hear "It's a bit of fate" but it's pretty hard to disambiguate between the two options.

Thank you! Teeth smile

Tristana: Nice band indeed! I think you wrote the right lyrics.

sandring: During my first listening I heard "bit of fate" too, but "bitter" seems more likely.

Klou, I'm glad I was able to help. The whole "Under The Floor, Over The Wall"
album worths a listen.
