about

Let us introduce you to this EP….

...first of all, this EP is of great importance to us – as a tribute, as an inspiration and as motivation to always keep on going. The EP is a product of a lot of planning, being crushed and coming back up. There are three performers because the production of this EP was suddenly stopped by the loss of our singer Mirco. Through the feeling of hopelessness, we recorded the songs with our guitarist Dommi while searching for a new beginning. As we started with Lisa we knew we can continue the work
.
…we hope that you like and enjoy the final result. Without the amazing support we received from everyone in the last year this would never be possible. Thank you all!

Track Name: Deep Waters
The words you say make no fucking sense in any way
Right now I can´t find a single reason why I should stay
here any longer, chasing dreams
Have we lost us, have we lost us?

I know it´s not the same, I know the colours faded
And I know they will recover because they always made it

I could never leave you there
But I just can´t reach you
I could never leave you there
But I just can´t reach you as I used to

Looking back at your bullshit
It began slowly and out of my hidden life
And came crashing down like a
breaker of the shore
we´re starting up a war

In quiet hours I revive the moments I have spent with you
And I need to know
that you still believe in this

Inside you, there is an ocean
you have so much to give
then you take it all away
Show me a light, show me you care and guide me through the coming storm
Show me a light, show me you care

Faked smiles won´t take us back where love was white and hate was black

Step back
Track Name: Passing By
When I look into your eyes
All I see is the world passing by
When I look into your eyes
All I see is the world falling apart

What happened to my home to my only home?
Outside the window only war and mass destruction
What about the secret places we used to go?
Are we supposed to know?

Hey man, go running with the wolves again

In your heart I feel the weight of the world
And I see clearly now, deeper inside there is your wish
To regenerate the earth
We will not bend

But in your head you have a brain
that makes you believe
To be the best among them all
Track Name: A Muted Version of a Man
I sold my soul to the devil
Small deals with neighbours, ha!
Ripped him off
It was not worth the obolus for the ferryman

I sell everything! For who has nothing is nothing
I sell everything! Your life for some golden ring

Got some nice curves
Well shaped my lady!
You´re worth more money than I paid for you
But baby your value decreases every day
And you really got some dues to pay

This is what I´ve learned
That much is what I’ve earned
There is my huge mansion
How do I feel so fucking alone?

I never touched ground
I´ve never really been myself
A muted version of a man
Always crying for help
Common!

I never touched ground
I´ve never been awake nor asleep
A muted version of a man
Who never puts down roots
Track Name: All the Same
I can feel my anger rise as I´m witnessing
How numb people have become to what they are truly saying

I´m down on my knees as I seek the horizon
Still waiting for the sky over me to brighten
So I can finally see who is pulling our strings
And is holding us back from being who we want to be
Who we really want to be!

All the greed and the envy blurred our vision, isn´t money the root of all decisions?
And we believe all their lies
Instead of even trying to use our goddamn minds
Use your goddamn minds

We´re all self-crowned kings and queens
All pretending to be served and pleased
But as we die and our bodies grow cold
We´re all the same, buried in a fucking hole
Track Name: Set the Sails
Set The Sails
For we are leaving this safe haven
We do it ´cause we can!
And should we ever return
Then to be buried where it all began

It´s still dark outside
We´ve been waiting for so long
Can´t you hear the distance calling?
We are fucking alive
It´s still dark outside
We´ve been waiting for this day to come

The sea swallows every doubt
And the time begins to heal our wounds
Get real and free your heavy hearts
We never felt so fucking alive
But this ship was never meant to set us free

It´s still dark outside
We´ve been waiting for so long

Can´t you hear the distance calling?
We are fucking alive
And dreaming on gets harder and harder
But we can´t touch ground

Never touch ground
Track Name: My Confession
Could this be cracks in my foundation?
How did I get so far from where I was
No!

How did I get so far from where I was
When did I decide to lose my way?
My mind is cloudy, I cannot see any direction

My feelings leading me straight into desperation!
Since I left the path of mine
I keep marching on
through this nameless places,
Trying to never lose you out of sight
Who have I become?

The hand that breaks your back to pieces!

I let this clock tick backwards just to see you die
Like a fucking early ending
The time has come to say goodbye
It takes you just a step to go beyond the light

If only you could focus
Then maybe you could see
That I will be no longer
Victim of the apathy, so silent I will rise
Denying everything I was

There was always something in the background
You were too blind to see
That all I have done for you
I really did for me
Since I left the path of mine
I keep marching on through
these nameless places
Trying to never lose you out of sight
This is my confession

This is my confession
I will be gone
Track Name: United
We are five
And stand united
Whatever comes in life, we´ll never be divided
And whoever tries to make us fall apart
Our rage is gonna hurt, we burn you down
We burn you down!

We stand united

In a world full of hate and rejection
We live fast but we have lost the direction
Too much disinformation, too many lies
we shall never find a way out

Whatever comes in life we´ll never be divided
And whoever tries to make us fall apart
Our rage is gonna hurt, we burn you down
We burn you down!

We stand united

In a world full of hate and rejection
We live fast but we have lost the direction
This is for my friends, for all the common hours
This is for my friends and for the past seven years

Days fly by and we´re getting weak
It´s been a long time since we walked away from here
So many memories are bound to this place
So live it up, this is the place we call home

This place we call it home
This is for my friends, for all the common hours
For the past seven years
We are five and we stand united
We burn you down, we burn you down
We shout it out, from the top of our lungs
Can´t you hear us now?
Track Name: You'll Stay Young
You´ll stay young
You´ll be strong
As you used to
All the time my friend
We´ll meet again

You already met the other side
Standing on the edge
The moment, the second
Where life passes away
Or lasts for another day

It´s not in our hands to decide
For one of this roads
But whatever happens
As you always said, brother
Go on, live on, stand on your ground

Even though, the road has ended for you
Memories stay in our soul your legacy will linger

We´re all fragile hearts
Walking along the streets worrying
About what we eat and how we dress
Losing sight on what really matters to live

You remind us
To feel grateful for being alive
Appreciate what we have and what we´ll lose
Honoured that we walked this path together and
Never forget your tribute

It´s not in our hands to decide
For one of this roads
But whatever happens
As you always said, brother
Go on, live on, stand on your ground
