On the Lows ep Bleib Modern takes us on a trip down a post-punk, post-card reverb drenched memory lane.
Hints of Joseph K to a Pornography era Cure, with many steps in between. A very English early 80's as i recall it.
It's good to be home occasionally....

Track Name: Forest
what pity we get
for a broken heart
and what if we let
us falling apart

rails come crashing
a lifetime's not enough
to manage all this rushing
and the death comes from above

this is my forest of hope
but I don't find a way
walking through my nightmares
while I'm searching the escape

forest of hope
and I don't mind if they
are walking straight beside me
cause I'm on a separate way

Track Name: Glass
and now I walk away from life
I'm not that easy, I'm not that good at all
if I'd be honest
I love myself falling in a black hole

that's my shock therapy
that's why I don't feel free
hate or love do not make
any difference to me
to destroy and rebuilt
my dearest collective guilt

by now I should be at the point
all tracks lead me to the mirror
right now I would reset this void
my collective guilt
cover everything with a smile
that's my shock therapy
Track Name: Cave
hands on hands / graves down here
in your arms / the atmosphere
hands on hands / the same old fear
in your heart / to dissapear

I'm holding a life in my hands
just a moment of love and I trust
I'm holding a life in my hands
for a moment I find myself lost

life illusions treating well
love is a word that I can not spell
life illusions made of the faith
love is a word locked up in a cave
