about

Our first song, from back when we were 3 actual human people in the band...

lyrics

Here we go again,
Give it another try
Gather up some friends
On whom we can rely

It has been done before
And has come to an end
But we'll just try once more
Cause it's a brand new band

It's another band
Planning another show
Will it go as planned ?
How the hell should I know ?
It's a new experience
A struggle that begins
That could get quite intense
or end up in the bin

Everyone's selves are merging
Into a new something
A stunning alchemy
Where gold is melody

And I know that someday,
The drums are bound to stop
Somewhere down the line,
The bass too will shut up

I know that eventually,
Guitars will have to cease
And at the very end,
My voice will rest in peace

But not now, not while blood still flows in our veins
Not while neural connections still function in our brains
We'll still try to make music and make it live on stage
No matter how many tries or bands and no matter our age
Maybe in the end we'll think it's been in vain
But in the meantime it's what prevents life from beeing plain
Music can make positive energy out of rage
So let's make something with it, let's write a new page

It's another band
Planning another show
Will it go as planned ?
How the hell should I know ?
It's a new experience
A struggle that begins
That could get quite intense
or end up in the bin
