about

Trunko Turku, Finland

Named after a peculiar cryptid, "Trunko" hails from the city of Turku. Influences are aplenty in the punk-esque poprock riffage of this Finnish power trio. The attitude and raw quality of Weezer mixed with the existentialist lyrics of an art rock band like The Smashing Pumpkins. ... more

Track Name: Bloom
gonna get you
gonna get you good
with a plan so vile
you'll waste more and more of time

trying to get me good
trying to prove a point
shove it in my head that now

the time is right
to let go of friends
and focus on your pride

gonna get you
I'm gonna get you bro
before you realize
you gotta run
you gotta go

with your bloody nose
you'll leave a trail so clear
it will be tough to disappear

the time is right
to let go of friends
and focus on your pride
and your ongoing fight
for your right to bloom
and leave others behind

you know you're right most of the time
even if you are the only one

come and get me
push me downhill
with my broken body
you'll reign supreme

the time is right
to let go of friends
and focus on your pride
and your ongoing fight
for your right to bloom
and leave others behind

gonna let you
gonna let you go
you've proved how weak we are
the fittest species under the stars
Track Name: Giant Fire
even if I'm gonna die
it will be alright
cos everything you know
and love will burn in a fire

the taste of this revenge
is so fucking sweet
the blood rushing through my veins
will leave you scarred

and for the first time
in mankind's history
everything is gonna be
the way I want it to be
and everything's gonna
burn in a giant fire

it's crazy how I miss
every other goal
at the expense
of the one I just reached

I'm gonna make it good
(gonna make it good)
I'll enjoy it, fine
(I'll enjoy it, fine)
gonna make it good
even if it's a lie

and for the first time
in mankind's history
everything is gonna be
the way I want it to be
and everything's gonna

even though we gotta know
nothing good will come
out of it all

and for the first time
in mankind's history
everything is gonna be
the way I want it to be
and everything's gonna
burn in a giant fire

and for the first time
in mankind's history
everything is gonna be
the way I want it to be
and everything's gonna

even though we gotta know
nothing good will come
out of it all
Track Name: Grown Men Cry
a beautiful notion
that everything will die
and wither away

beautiful notion
that nothing is here to stay

makes grown men cry
"I'm gonna die
my kids and wife
gone forever"

beautiful notion
that everything will die
and wither away

beautiful notion
that nothing is here to stay

makes grown men cry
"I'm gonna die
my kids and wife
gone forever"

hatred forms a sequence
in your eyes
I know that there's a picture
of your eyes in the sky
Track Name: Come Alive
come alive you'll see
there's a fragile being
out there for you

in death we seek
something we believe
might be truer

than our flesh
and perhaps some power

to find the needle in the hay
we try, we try
we fail, we fail
but it sure as hell is there
I declare

some suspicious soul
says there is no home
out there for us

we divide our thoughts
and leave some alone
we're helplessly

crushed in the vacuum
of the space we inhabit

to find the needle in the hay
we try, we try
we fail, we fail
but it sure as hell is there
I declare

come alive you'll see
