King Of Frowns Everything has changed over night The skies are full of atom clouds, which form an artificial red and everything around seems dead I take a one hour shower Feed my mind with lovely thoughts Switch on the flatscreen tv But only me I see Then leave the house without shoes as I have the barefoot blues Through the city in a train to visit my beloved in vain In a self pity sea I drown Baby, I'm the king of frowns I can be sad as everyone and after that I won't be done In a happy sea I'd like to be Baby, I'm the king of irony Would you like to be my queen? And dive with me in the obscene Take the next train home and get lost somewhere downtown Thus it seems I have to walk Barefooted to myself I talk Back home I take another shower to keep me save and warm to keep away the harm at least for another hour In the garden I watch explosions In a rain of atom bombs I feel a sudden stroke of lust as everything turns to dust
2.
Bullet For Peace With an empty sheet of paper I start anew it's all for you With a bullet where it hurts I start a war, a war of words Give me a bullet for my peace A bullet that doesn't make us bleed Give me a bullet of deceit A bullet that doesn't make us bleed Even though you don't care I follow you anywhere, anywhere Even though you don't give a damn I wanna be your man With our childhood heroes in mind we start a new life, new life Home is always in transit Whenever we are not in strife A bullet for peace A bullet for peace I emigrate to anywhere where the grass is greener

Don't Belong 04:16
Don’t Belong I am the ghost in a crowded room Silence creeping up my spine From the distance I’m watching you through the darkness you shine I don’t belong here anymore I don’t belong here anymore You are ghost inside my telephone and I’ll stay strong for many years Sometimes on the fairground of fears the apparition disappears I don’t belong here anymore I don’t belong here anymore This is a place where I feel wrong And in my mind they play your song Trying to figure out the secret message of the pain Trying to figure out what this is all about I don’t belong here anymore Like a creature without head I don’t belong here anymore Torn apart and oh so sad I don’t belong here anymore As I carry my own cross I don’t belong here anymore to celebrate the weight of loss Leaving the scars behind the message is to live Learn and experience witness and forgive I don’t belong here anymore I don’t belong here anymore I don’t belong here anymore I don’t belong here anymore

The Violent Words I try to sing this lonely song in tune Something beautiful in my times of need I try to sing a melody for you May our ragged wounds finally cease to bleed I try to sing this hymn full of harmony but miss the right tones with my hoarse voice I try to play a song of hope for thee May it drown out all of the white noise Hours of hoping Shivers with the mourning bell Your violent words A trigger for the pain The more I change you can’t keep up with me Your violent words are like a weapon of disdain I try to sing this lonely song in tune Something beautiful in my times of need I try to sing a melody for you May our ragged wounds finally cease to bleed

Mysterious Girl She is a cherub and a queen These eyes I can’t forget Abyssal like a starry sea Her aura seems ablaze She carries TNT In her pockets, in her heart Explosive like volcanoes But she doesn’t have a name That’s why I miss this mysterious girl I am addicted, I admit To yearn for you I cannot quit That’s why I miss this mysterious girl Always distant, yet so close You’re my lover’s grief overdose She was the queen of the crowd That’s where I lost her glance For a moment just our eyes met These eyes I can’t forget She was the princess of the dawn as she was dancing in my heart Explosive like volcanoes And I don’t even know her name I went the sidewalk southwards Sunken in erotic dreams I missed the exit long ago A lifelong trip to see her gleam That’s why I love you more and more You are the mirror for my dreams A game of the extremes Cause I adore you every day a little more Even though I don’t know you in my world our love is true

Hipsters And Whores There’s a guy lost in this town That recently I've seen His story is like those of many That without home have been He spits out his Weltschmerz As he walks along the rails In Berlin-Kreuzberg past midnight Tangled are his trails Waiting for the subway In a palace under ground It comes to bring the lost ones home A deep and roaring sound Waiting for salvation In the abyss of the town The travellers of the night Big city kings without a crown Hipsters and whores whom the young ones adore A town from within A heaven of sins Beggars and thieves Forgotten believes Junkies and priests Some angels at least He takes the train U8 The line from South to North Mitten durch die Nacht Into the morning sun henceforth Steps out at Kottbusser Tor To buy some cheap drugs Takes a walk through Görlitzer Park And creeps back like a slug He's sleeping in a backyard Had an overdose this night The skies they were ashen The rats, they sleep beside

Nightmare Coming True Each time we kiss I feel a spark It’s like a leap in the dark When worlds collide, I’d like to be with you This nightmare, this nightmare’s coming true When our bleary ghosts embrace Your soul leaves a distinct trace Let’s make love when the pain cuts through This nightmare, this nightmare’s coming true Each time we kiss I feel divine It’s like we’re falling out of time When heavens crash, I’ll stay with you This nightmare, this nightmare’s coming true When we sink into oblivion The sky is bleeding in vermillion When all falls, I’m feeling very blue This nightmare, this nightmare’s just for you

Secret Hideaway I have a secret hideaway A house, a house far from harm
 It’s like a cradle full of straw that keeps me save and warm The current of the undertow It carries notions to the shore I’m sending you a puzzle piece Pretend that you know what it’s for I have a secret hideaway A place, a place that keeps me dry where oceanic cities grow The towers reach out to the sky The flowers of indifference The gambler with the highest score I’m sending you a puzzle piece Pretend that you know what it’s for Would you stay just for the night Would you stay this very night with me In this house of mystery The basement of my soul In this house of mystery play a little symphony! Down here in emptiness opens up a secret door I’m sending you a puzzle piece Pretend that you know what it’s for

WideWideWorld The way so long, the way to go Will it tear us apart? There's darkness in our lonely souls There's darkness in our hearts The passionate deserts of our lives covered by blood-red sand I love the way you move your hips I love your tender hands The moon is high, the sun is down The wide world, how sublime I've been riding a hundred miles into the dawn of time The way so long, the stony way Wisdsom it may show There's darkness in our dirty minds There's darkness where we go The passionate wastelands of the self Together we're alone I love the way you move your tongue Erotic to the bone The moon is high, the sun is down The wide world, how sublime I've been riding a thousand miles into the dawn of time The moon is high, the sun is down The wide world, how sublime I've been riding a million miles into the dawn of time

When The Storm Comes We swallow the sun and spit out the moon Drifting away and sleep until noon We drown in champagne as it bleeds from the skies We drown in champagne and ask no more whys When the storm comes for you I build A bed in the flood A raft in the blood When the storm comes for you I build a haven of love in the clouds above Termination time again A bitter explosion Escape from the rain A dreadful notion A dreadful notion We drown in champagne as it bleeds from the skies We drown in champagne and ask no more whys I send you flowers all over the globe while I tie myself with a rope I salute you with a frown wearing the clothes of a clown

The Halo Trees Berlin, Germany

The Halo Trees, that’s deep, melancholic music with plenty of room for the voice and handmade instrumentation. A comforting sound universe, inspired by David Bowie, Editors, Mark Lanegan, The National or Nick Cave. A mixture of indie-rock, pop, wave and post-rock with many tom-toms, melodic basslines, atmospheric guitars, catchy violin and sonorous, warm vocals. ... more
