“Time will tell”, They say But I can already smell The waste It’s burning up It’s burning up It’s burning up It’s burning up “Time will tell”, They say “Fuel up your tank And come out to play” It’s burning up It’s burning up It’s burning up It’s burning up Glacial facial expressions Covering their ears Lost souls, sinkholes They don’t know what to fear The brightest lightest greens Soon nowhere to be seen Lost souls, sinkholes They don’t know what to fear They don’t know what to fear They don’t know what to fear It’s burning up It’s burning up It’s burning up It’s burning up

I am afraid of the water Drowning is not an option The darkest is the deepest The darkness makes me sleepless How much further ’til the shore is here? High and dry, in my tower Waiting for endless showers My feet grow in to fins Scales appear on my skin How much further ’til the shore is here?

No, not yet It’s way too early Come back later When I’m done Walk away And don’t be sorry I’m well aware The end’s begun It’s not your fault Please, don’t worry Just come and get me When my time has come It’s not your fault Please, don’t worry Just come and get me When my time has come No, not yet It’s way too early Grant me one more Thought alone Allow me to complete My story The one I’ve started writing Long ago It’s not your fault Please, don’t worry Just come and get me When my time has come It’s not your fault Please, don’t worry I’ve already forgotten where I’m from

Put away Like a bird in a cage I did not misbehave I did not misbehave Out of breath Like a fish on the riverbed Don’t let me suffocate I did not misbehave Four walls closing in Four walls closing in Four walls closing in Four walls closing in Isolation Desolation Keeps us on our toes Separation Adaptation Keeps us on our toes Keeps us on our toes Four walls closing in Four walls closing in Four walls closing in Four walls closing in

The wolf of Memphis Prepares for a new day In his home under still waters He's waiting for the waves On this black sunny day The rain is waiting to pour On all children that play guitar And search for.... The wolf of Memphis Is ready for a new day In his home under still waters He's waiting for his prey On this black sunny day The rain is waiting to pour On all children that play guitar And search for a whole lotta love Until the day is done Until the day is done

Masquerade 04:22
Put me away in a house of glass on my own Seal the doors and put up a sign saying ‘home’ The walls are the windows, it’s me staring back From this one way mirror glass Observe me, examine me, thumbs up or down Your words won’t reach me now Lock me up, turn the key and throw it away I can’t get out, I am trapped inside, but that’s okay Silence, tranquility, plugs in my ears Detachment suits me well Deaf to the noises, deaf to the screams I only hear myself I don’t mind I don’t mind I don’t mind (Me, myself and…) I don’t mind Don’t mind Don’t mind me

There is a cloud It’s hanging high It follows me To wherever I go Just waiting there Patiently For the right time to Start pouring over me Are your shoes still waterproof? It’s a raincoat rendezvous Would you have come here if you knew It’d be a raincoat rendezvous? Until the sun is breaking through It’s a raincoat rendezvous Luring me Out of my hiding place Dangling the bait In front of my face It’s hunting me I’m the prey in this game No Russian roulette It’s gonna be a buckshot rain Are your shoes still waterproof? It’s a raincoat rendezvous Would you have come here if you knew It’d be a raincoat rendezvous? Until the sun is breaking through It’s a raincoat rendezvous The cloudburst isn’t meant for you It’s my raincoat rendezvous Let it rain, let it rain

about

Pocket Knife Army Amsterdam, Netherlands

UK media already dubbed the Dutch band the electronic equivalent of the White Stripes. These two multitaskers make unconventional electro-rock music from a parallel universe. Armed with loads of grinding synths, a roaring bass guitar and impressive vocals, they make gutsy songs that are too groovy not to move, but too intriguing to listen casually. Music for the adventurous listener! ... more
