What happens when an ex-diplomat, a schizophrenic economist, a lonesome sailor and a bass guitaress, all full of music but with different backgrounds, abandon their old lives and get together in a smoky cellar in the middle of Vienna?

A blend of supernatural soundscapes mixed up with traditional songwriting, dirty beats and piercing vocal lines.

Track Name: Wasted Life
Oh what a wasted life I’ve been living all day long
Watching porn flicks, doing nothing
Oh what a wasted life I’ve been living all week long
Counting raindrops, calling no one

A cry for help, oh help me move on

Oh what a wasted life, I’ve been living all day long
Reaping gains, believing in nothing
Oh what a wasted life I’ve been living all year long
Never miss a thing but miss everything

A cry for help, a cry for help
Track Name: Her trade is silence (Hidden CD Track)
My girl owns the best bar in the world
Wears tight jeans, she’s dressed in fur
She serves black poison

My girl, shining eyes and lips of gold,
A million stories but none told
Her trade is silence

She’s twisting me, she’s turning me, she rips a hole inside of me, she’s licking me, she’s tricking me, I’m stumbling, I’m falling.
Degrading me, disjointing me, dismantling, dismembering me, dispersing me, dissecting me, I’m stumbling, I’m falling

My girl owns a drawer full of stones
Plays the cards, she’s tossing bones,
She reads the future

My girl, a killing smile, no secrets sold
A million stories but none told,
Her trade is silence

She’s twisting me, she’s turning me, she rips a hole inside of me, she’s licking me, she’s tricking me, I’m stumbling, I’m falling.
Degrading me, disjointing me, dismantling, dismembering me, dispersing me, dissecting me, I’m stumbling and then I fall
Track Name: Horror on the news
Horror on the news, Millions are dead
Birds singing the blues, Cows getting mad
Horror on the news, 10.000 dead
Heaven is all packed, Saints weeping the blues

Horror on the news, Stock markets crash
Billions abused, Banks out of cash
Horror on the news, Dolly is dead
Clones of Tom Cruise, For sale on the racks

Now that this life is done with
And all that comes with it
I feel my time has come as yours comes to an end
Now that the satellites disappear with all the screens turning black and clear
Deliverance is near

Horror on the news, Bateman is back
Casting shows gone, Brittney is sad
Horror on the news, Nobody’s dead
Nothing’s to report, Millions are mad

Now that this life is done with
And all that comes with it
I feel my time has come as yours comes to an end
Now that the satellites disappear with all the screens turning black and clear
Deliverance is near
Track Name: Final Day of Summer (Hope)
The road’s been long, I’m out of here
The vision is strong, my mind is clear
Old friends pass by to shout a last farewell

From rags to riches, from east to west
No prisoners taken, no time to rest
I’m on a quest to find the last hooray

Doubts dispelled, principles jettisoned along the way
On this final day of summer
No rules to follow, no pills to swallow, all liabilities paid
On this final day of summer

And through the jungle, across the plains
Through gale-force winds, torrential rain
Each muscle hurts but I cannot feel the pain

And when I’ve reached the Promised Land
With meadows green, auriferous sands
I’ll send a postcard, so baby don’t you cry

Doubts dispelled, principles jettisoned along the way
On this final day of summer
No rules to follow, no pills to swallow, all liabilities paid
On this final day of summer

‘Cause now I’m free, I have lost the pain
And all that fuss, I broke the chains
That kept me tight on the inside for so long
Track Name: Amnesia
Once I was a better man
Once I lived in a better world
(But now) tides are low, high spirits all gone
I’m a jack of all trades, a master of none.

When I look around me here
Looking for some signs of hope
There is nothing I can see, amnesia

Once I was a blameless man
Once I lived in an innocent world
(But now) the cowards, they hide, the hypocrites run
They’re jacks of all trades, but masters of none

When I look around me here
Looking for some signs of hope
And the only thing I see, amnesia
Track Name: The Virus
You think you can do whatever you want
You think you have the choices but the choices are gone
You think you can role like on a tank ride
Controlling all the data but the data wreck your mind
Get lost

You think you have the money, but the price has long been paid
You think you have the courage but its cowardice it takes
You think you can build bridges and clockworks made of steel
But your life is caught in progress like the hamster on the wheel
You’re lost

And knowledge is illusion, and numbers a lost game
And everything that’s sacred gets sucked into the drain
And all you’ve ever wished for and all you’ve ever cared for
Gets eaten by the monster but the monster itself is scared
It’s lost

You think you have the money, but the price has long been paid
You think you have the courage but its cowardice it takes
And all you’ve ever wished for and all you’ve ever cared for
Gets eaten by the monster but the monster itself is scared
It’s lost
