about

Living in a city can be a mess sometimes, the concept for this album is mainly influenced by Alfred Wolfenstein’ s poem Staedter. The reason we picked this poem in particular is, although it was written in a complete different historical context than ours, we still see analogies to today. The theme of anonymity, isolation,loneliness in a narrow city, packed with masses of humyn beings is still present nowadays. We tried to project this phenomenon into the context of our life, how it is in the 21st century.

Track Name: Klamm
Lass mich hier raus
ich will geh'n
alles ist kalt und grau
ich will der welt entflieh'n

Heute mal wieder nicht gelebt
nur existiert
und zeit verschwendet
umgeben von betrügern
in feindes hand
das echte leben
einfach verpasst

(und) so leben wir vor uns hin
tag ein tag aus
blinde akteure eines falschen spiels

nichts verstanden, nichts kapiert
blanker stumpfsinn
wenn du nur existierst
ohne dass du lebst

jeden tag
begrab ich ein stück
von mir selbst
und werde teil einer kalten welt

jeden tag
selbstverlust
nichts mehr bleibt
außer leere
Track Name: Flow my tears, the Policeman said
a world that once held so much clarity
transformed into a solitude
streams of pulsing life
turned into hollow roads

staring into the face of death
just one more step and I will drown
and at the edge of the abyss
the gallows waiting for us all

flow my tears
wash away
flow my tears wash away the pain

flow my tears,
wash away the pain
mourn the decay of our empathy
Track Name: Wolves at my Doorstep
the wolves are waiting
at my doorstep
I can almost feel
their teeth on my skin

or is this just
a paranoia
fueled by my own insanity

the wolves are waiting
at my doorstep
ripped apart
feeling incomplete

the wolves are waiting
at my doorstep
ripped apart
feeling incomplete

the wolves are waiting
at my doorstep
who will save me?
who will heal me?

the wolves are waiting
at my doorstep
I can almost feel
their teeth on my skin

or is this just
a paranoia
created in my head

the wolves are waiting
at my doorstep
who will save me?
who will heal me?
Track Name: Hollow
your blood
is running through my veins
I can
see myself, inside your eyes
my future
forcasts through your life
the questions
i wanted to ask

as you left me, they
remained unanswered
I am still screaming for help
can you hear me?

no
your lips are motionless
and you are deaf to my screams

trapped inside yourself
with nothing but hunger for failure
you drown yourself in a flask
but the sorrows wont fade
and I am still trying to reach you
but slowly you turn

motionless
Track Name: A Sort of Escapism
the engine's running at high performance
human beings, streaming through the streets
constructed lifes, out of production lines
a clocked machinery, seeking prosperity

the world is turning
but I am standing still
wasting my time
with onproductiveness
I force myself to sleep
into an everlasting nightmare
clarity consumed by dullness
my head is full ghosts

close my eyes from the world and turn away from life
drown myself into stagnancy

nothing but eternal numbness
brings relief
I will close my eyes
and force myself to sleep

the world is turning
but I am standing still
this city never sleeps
but i will put myself to rest
humyn beings
working like machines
eternal stagnancy
is the only thing that brings me relief
Track Name: Erster Teil: Der Sermon
war
we are the citizens
lies
of a modern world

children of light
protected by the hands
of our savior
guide us into your bosk

brand the nonbelievers as
heretics
weedthemout
of our perfect world

weed them out
of our paradise
Track Name: Zweiter Teil: In den Staub
we wandered through this world
like god's chosen few
but the tide has turned
and pushed us into dust

and the ones we used to rule
have overthrown our throne
heretics turned to kings
and masters into servants

but no empire was ever made to last
what a humyn has made
another humyn will destroy
extermination follows creation
tyranny destroys prosperity

the children of dust are rising
to unleash the hounds of war
and drown the world in flames
the reign of light will fall
to be replaced
by the kingdom
the kingdom of dust

this eternal spiral
repeats itself forevermore
and humynity has lost control
so we are doomed to fight an endless war
against ourselves
that leads us all into dust-into dust

this endless war leads us all into dust
Track Name: Staedter
dicht wie die löcher eines siebes stehn
fenster beieinander, drängend fassen
häuser sich so dicht an, dass die straßen
grau geschwollen, wie gewürgte stehn

die häuser fassen sich
so dicht an
dass die straßen
grau geschwollen stehn

ineinander, dicht hineingehakt
sitzen die, zwei Fassaden
Leute ihre, nahen blicke baden
ineinander, ohne scheu befragt

unsere wände sind so dünn wie haut
daß ein jeder teilnimmt wenn ich weine
unser flüstern, unser denken
wird zu gegröhle

und wie still in dick verschlossner höhle
ganz
un-angerührt und ungeschaut
steht ein jeder fern und
fühlt alleine

unsere wände sind so
dünn wie haut
dass ein jeder teilnimmt
wenn ich weine

wir sind alleine
Track Name: Die Dummen waren noch nie so laut wie heute
dem tod seid ihr entflohen
nun steht ihr vor unserer tür
eure hände, sie sind leer
doch wir teilen nicht

nein, ihr bekommt kein stück
von unserem wohlstand
der blanke futterneid
ist was uns antreibt
die leichen stapeln sich an unserer tür
doch wir sehen nichts, vor lauter gier

wir sind konditioniert
zu blankem hass
und euer leid
lässt uns völlig kalt
denn unser wohlstand
bezahlt mit eurem blut

ihr seid nicht willkommen
in unserem schönen land
hier herrscht die diktatur
der ignoranz
wir zeigen unser wahres gesicht
die kalte fratze
der unmenschlichkeit

die leichen stapeln sich vor unserer tür
und wir sind alle, nicht frei von schuld
von eurem leid, wenden wir uns ab
so bleibt die weste weiß, und das gewissen gewissen rein
