about

The concept is about the struggle of a man with the modern communication era and fear of a future where communication is increasingly digital. Where the internet becomes more and more dominant and where there will be less and less privacy.

Track Name: Acceptatio
Instrumental
Track Name: G.A.B.O.S
Work - Sleep - Obey Me
Game ain’t based on Sympathy

I must be dreaming – Stand before this gate
Although the door is open - I’m ordered here to wait
Looking for the law - Longing to be free
But this gatekeeper just looks at me and says:
The game ain’t based on sympathy

Work - Sleep - Obey Me
Game ain’t based on Sympathy

Gave me a chair and I’m wondering how I got here
I wear something on my sleeve – a pair of glasses I believe
Unpragmatic laws are the worst of tyranny
I had a vision of a ghost in a machine who said to me

Work - Sleep - Obey Me
Game ain’t based on Sympathy

Wish I had a book – I used to read a lot
Who needs a library with everywhere screens on an eyeshot?
When I signed this vow – a promise to be free
But it’s a digital world where you can clearly see

Work - Sleep - Wait - See
Mate – Buy - Obey - Me
Trust – Follow - Like – Me
Work - Sleep - Wait - See
Track Name: Black vinyl dreams
I remember a thunderstorm – ghosts lit on the wall
Must‘ve been short after my brother was born – I recall
We were taken out of bed – put on a table the four
No, I don’t think that I ever felt more safe and more secure
Well I’m not looking for salvation
Not in need of being cured
From this binary addiction – how can numbers be obscure?
You’re so good at numbers tell me, what’s the last?
All hooked up on a machine
The world as big as a phone screen

It was on a New Year’s Eve – around ’78
Played pure magic on the record player down in the living –
sounded great
How we should have known by the end of that decade
All this would be used to reinvent and re-create?
I don’t want to sound downhearted
But it slipped right through my hands
And It seemed so unimportant then – It took years to understand
So you can tell the square root of minus one?
All hooked up on a machine
The world narrowed to a phone screen
Track Name: G.A.B.O.S Reprise
I must be dreaming – good – Finally set free
Smart glasses for smart asses – That’s the joke they played on me

I volunteered for a test – The future’s looking bright
A glimpse of singularity now coming into sight

But yesterday I went to bed and woke up with a scream
Cause these numeric assignments still where coming in my dreams

Reminds me of this movie where a man ripped out his eyes
Yeah for seeing all there is you pay a very heavy price
Track Name: The Bellman
I met him at first when I was a child
Saw him floating through the air – He looked kind of scary then
Years passed by and our paths crossed again
He said he was my friend now – and all my secrets were safe
in his hands

He knows when I’m sad or when I’m afraid
Who I am and how I feel – all my doubts and
my fears
I see him in the darkened sky – passing like a cloud
All my secrets in his basket – pouring them down
like rain
Track Name: Of aphids and ants
Am I looking troubled?
Well, I tell you what’s the deal
Are all these things before my eyes virtual or real?
No one’s ever wondering why they get their stuff for free
Excuse me for being skeptical about handing over keys

Sometimes I feel so lonely in this world
Sometimes I don’t want to see and misunderstand
Living is easy with your eyes closed and your ears shut

On this TV nature show I saw aphids got abused
The ants seemed to protect them, but just milked their honeydew
The aphids do not seem to care and they haven’t got a clue
What would happen to their tiny butts, if they ran ever out of juice.

Sometimes I feel so lonely in this world
Sometimes I don’t want to see and misunderstand
Living is easy with your eyes closed and your ears shut
Track Name: The lidless room
I saw this Movie last night –
man living in a golden cage
Found out he was nothing but an effigy
And the world was his stage

So now we’re stuck inside these four walls
We’ll never get out again
Because the outside is like the inside
The net became our biggest fan

We’re living in a Lidless Room
The age of ignorance is gone
Who keyed in all your fucking data on the web?
There’s no one here to blame that on

In some time the web connection
Is injected straight inside your head
And everyone’s a freaking genius
With all the knowledge of the web

We’re living in a Lidless Room
The age of ignorance is gone
Who shoved that data through the keyhole?
There’s no one here to blame that on

You know this guy Galileo
Found out the earth orbits the sun
But in the specter of the universe
It is a rather silly run

We’re living in a Lidless Room
The age of ignorance is gone
Who shoved that data through the keyhole?
Track Name: Obsolete men
The train rolls into these waste lands by tomorrow
What can cure you, sure can kill you cried the man
Where silence, our guidance, our hope will be gone
And nature forsaken is not on our side

Should I smash the looms to pieces like captain Ludd did?
Or blow up the dam like the Monkey Wrench Gang? – Oh no.
Yes we are all in rat’s alley
Where the dead men lost their bones

On the horizon the sun sets in a shimmering sky
In a world where’s no place for old fashioned and obsolete men
Where logic is the enemy and truth is a menace
And the dead men lost their bones
Track Name: The devil and the machine
They ever see us - Won’t free us, baby
the devil and the machine
Well they treat us like peanuts
the devil and the machine

Saw this Hunchback sitting on the park bench
Guzzle down his sixpack like there’s no tomorrow
Homeless superhero, Trying to borrow
Eyes so hollow, laiden with sorrow

We know who you are - Give us your mind
And we’lI show you what’s in - It’s just a matter of time

I wanna draw back my Martens boots
Look at the screen and scream
I wanna kick the succer square in the eye
Beyond the applications and all modifications
I see dudes enter offices shoot down some cartoonists

We know who you are – The places where you have been
Now give a big hand for
The Devil and the Machine

We know who you are
A touchscreen is nothing but a mirror you know
We’ll be waiting on the other side
Just me and the Machine
Track Name: The old riverbed
In the hypnopomp state
between sleeping and waking
I find myself back at the old riverbed
It’s a regular welcoming dream
always swimming or fishing
or doing nothing instead

Dawn is breaking over glacial remains
Where the hillsides rise up in the east.
The depths of these waters keeps secrets
of soldiers, of knights and of romans
on their farthest frontier

Hold my knuckles tight now to the handrail I am looking down

A girl passes by and sees nothing at all
Just having eyes for her phone
Two boys on their bikes cycling quitly by
Their headphones as big as a house

Do I have the guts to get detached now? - No

So the dumb, dull ghost in the little black box
In the end was the sliest of all
Anything you’ve ever told him is recalled by the fox
It’s time to pull the plug from the walls

Do I have the guts to get detached now?
Do I have the guts to get detached now?
Track Name: Through the gate
Instrumental
