about

You may call it a comeback. In these times of trouble we are trying to sneak back into entertainment. It often takes a couple of days, spread out across many years for us to write a record. During such a long period you start to question the necessity of yet another rock album. You challenge the pros and cons, planning how to con the pros. And then you settle with the conclusion that everything is the same as it ever was.

Therefore we want to use this music to once more remind you of all the misfortune, greed and stress surrounding us. But at the same time celebrate the humanity, the friendliness and the equality that somehow coexists. That continues to grow with every helping hand and every unselfish deed.

Track Name: Dodge Bullets
Sit down on the chair
And open up yourself
Let it all spill out
I won’t take offence
Don’t you hide the truth
Hit me with your dirt again
Cause I’m ready

To dodge bullets to stay awake
Cyber tourists pull the breaks

How hurtful it is?
I don’t care about that at all
Please lead me to the dark
It makes my pain disappear
It makes me feel good
So hit me with your dirt again
Cause I’m ready

To dodge bullets to stay awake
Cyber tourists pull the breaks

Hit me with your dirt again

Thousand ballots with your name
Cyber tourists you’re to blame

Hit me with your dirt again
Track Name: Apartment
I need to get out
Out of the apartment
There is no light
The floor is full of garbage
The air gets thin
(There's) Someone in the hallway
I cannot shout, spitting out dust on the floorboards

Can't make it out, someone throw a rock through the window

I need to get out
Is it locked from the outside
The taps are dry, and I've never been this thirsty
The walls cave in
I'm sweating through the jacket
I cannot breathe, something creeping up on me from behind

Can't make it out, someone throw a rock through the window
Can't make it out, I'm in the apartment trying to survive

I need to get out
Out of the apartment
Track Name: Hollow Pricks
My mind is blank it's hard to think
I need to set myself into instant sleep
To wake up enriched, enriched, enriched
I need to wake up rich
And say bye, bye, bye, bye
You hollow pricks
Cause I’m d.i.y and I’m not yours to fix
I got my own plans, thoughts, ideas on how

To make us all be real and forever stay true
To keep on wasting time on what we do
Same dreams, same love as always
We will prove we're not like you

I don’t give a shit about what’s a fact
And I know I’m way too old to act like that
But I still refuse, refuse, refuse, I refuse
And I won't (try to) pretend
To be at ease with your complaints
Cause I’m d.i.y and I’m not yours to fix
I got my own plans, thoughts, ideas on how

To make us all be real and forever stay true
To keep on wasting time on what we do.
Same dreams, same love as always
We will prove we're not like you
