about

This record has been in the making for approximately 2 years and I have been through a lot of change since then. It means the world to me, both, on a musical and personal level as it incorporates everything that I stand for, belive in and love.
I would be very honored if the you (the person reading this) would take the time to listen to it in full, read the lyrics and just enjoy my first own record.

It was fully written,recorded, mixed and mastered by myself which was, quiet honestly, awful and fantastic at the same time. While I had complete control over the direction this record was going and the musical influences that shaped it, I really missed some objective opinions of other musicians.
You may ask yourself "well, why the hell didn't you just finde some musicians to help you then?" and the answer is very simple: I live in a rather rural area in the south of Germany where quality musicians are pretty rare. Therefore I decided to go on my own.

The concept of the record is based on the continuous change of life itself and how one should always try to find the positive aspects of said change. The album title "Worlds Falling Apart" should not be seen as something bad or catastrophic but rather as a development from an old, maybe conservative, restrictive or limiting mindset into a more reflected, mature one.
To me this change meant to rid myself of old habits that held me back from becoming a better person. I felt deep remorse over failed relationships and mistakes I did in the past and cared too much about what or what not other people thought of me, of my beliefs and of my way of living. None of these things just disappeared by writing these songs but it helped me to let out at least some of these feelings and start letting go. Many people you meet in your life will have an influence on you. Some good, others bad. In this record, you will find both sides but as I already said, the importance is to reflect what happened and use it to become a better person or help others in becoming better.

Again: Even if your old worlds are falling apart, keep your head up because in the end, the things you will learn on that journey are far more valuable than staying in your comfort zone.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for listening, sharing, buying the record or just reading what it means to me.

Thank you.

Track Name: Avaritia
Lyrics:

Let's put it all in our pockets
Take from those in need
But never stop pretending
a fake excuse if they bleed
East men’s death is the west men’s treasure
Child labor is the first world’s leisure
Low age, low wage \ oh we love that it’s
Public vices, private benefits
Pre Chorus 1:
Cover the eyes and dig much deeper
for gold inside this crumbling mine
Retribution waits to meet you
as boulders break your crooked spine


With scythes that reap the fields voraciously
Avarice's harvest will go on (and on, the harvest will go on)
Even when there's nothing left to salvage she
won't catch what has gone wrong

Take what you can get
remorse is for the dead
no need to feel regret
leaving behind a wasteland
Sip another drink
let the whole word sink
down into the silt
made from scrap
You piece of shit
you fucking hypocrite
who do you think you are
spoiling this world
like it is your own
down from your hollow throne
you run your mouth all day
without a word to say so

Shut your ears and dig much deeper
for gold inside this crumbling mine
Retribution waits to meet you
as boulders break your fucking spine

With scythes that reap the fields voraciously
Avarice's harvest will go on (and on, the harvest will go on)
Even when there's nothing left to salvage she
won't catch what has gone wrong

The day will come, when you realise
all that you have done
Stumbling through the wreckage
you left behind for everyone
As much as you try to cleanse your hands
they will always remain stained
And as much as you try to sew a veil of delusion
it will always be tained
Go ahead and look into the eyes
of those eploited by your greed
good luck walking on the ice
with that weight on your feet
Avaritia
Track Name: Above Them All
Lyrics:

Our fate is sealed with the price you pay
repletion warrants misery
We're born to feed and raised in fear
Your lack of interest will keep us here

What makes you think you're above them all?
Do you even care to see beyond the wall?

A craving mind with no empathy
Mass murdering deliberately
Redundant practice justifies
the gluttony in human eyes

Just because you feel desire
doesn't mean there is the need
life bled dry hour by hour
a repulsive human deed


What makes you think you're above them all?
Do you even care to see beyond the wall?

Cause we plant the seed that will start a storm (open up your heart and mind)
which will leave the claim to life reborn
cast away contempt and misery
for all life's integrity

Cause the choice is yours to start a storm (open up your heart and mind)which will leave the claim to life rebornand make way for a new age of unity , all life's integrity


Just because you feel desire
doesn't mean there is the need
life bled dry hour by hour
a repulsive human deed

Why do you cling to habits that cause so much suffering?
How can you just downplay what happens behind shut doors?
There is a responsibility in your actions,
a consequence in behaviour, open your fucking eyes!

What makes you think you're above them all?
Do you even care to see beyond the wall?

Cause we plant the seed that will start a storm (open up your heart and mind)
which will leave the claim to life reborn
cast away contempt and misery
for all life's integrity

Cause the choice is yours to start a storm (open up your heart and mind)which will leave the claim to life rebornand make way for a new age of unity , all life's integrity
Track Name: Four Puppets
Lyrics:

Come one, come all, enjoy the play
Five golden coins is all they’ll pay
Four puppets stringed by countless hands
Which bought the rights to lead the dance

Each mask so thoroughly
Hiding personality
Spineless coward’s judging fingers
A hateful spirit that always lingers

Pick to pieces the puppet’s heart
And call it a critique
But make sure to hide your face my friend
Or they’ll string you when it starts again

Come one, come all, enjoy the play
Five golden coins is all they’ll pay
Four puppets stringed by countless hands
Which bought the rights to lead the dance

Every opinion you make known
Reeks of biased undertone
Don't bother asking for the matter
When clearly they know all things better
Blessed with the gift to be disguised
Their purpose is to criticize

Raised their opinion inside a box so small
But what goes up eventually will fall
When all their grudge and taunt is said and done
they'll still be laughing stocks to everyone so


Come one, come all, enjoy the play
Five golden coins is all they’ll pay
Four puppets stringed by countless hands
Which bought the rights to lead the dance

So keep your golden coins
You'd give so righteously
If you think you can buy the right to spoil all of the puppetry
And from a thounsand voices your words may sound the proudest
But while reason's silent idiots will scream the loudest
Track Name: Promise Me Salvation
Lyrics


Fake, all (of) your kind is following the hive
Tell me who I have to be, suck out all my life
Corrupted mannequins distorted by their greed
Fashion, lifestyle, mass consumption, reflection’s obsolete

Promise me salvation, with money I shall pay
Never step out of the line, at least that’s what they say

Break it down, we won’t drown
Inside the sea
Of force-fed lifestyles and corporate disease
Break it down, break their crown
And they will see
That we are all they’ve never achieved to be

Take all your labels and shove ‘em up your ass
We won’t let you turn us into a dully obeying mass

You promise me salvation but with money I shall pay?
I will step out of all lines, your downfall starts today!

Break it down, we won’t drown
Inside the sea
Of force-fed lifestyles and corporate disease
Break it down, break their crown
And they will see
That we are all they’ve never achieved to be
Track Name: Nothing To Our Grave
Lyrics

Blindfolded by a narcotic deceit
We spend our lives to fuel the gears that waste away our dreams
Revenue dictates our desire and needs
So feed me your synthetic diet made of sedatives and keep me quiet

Do you believe the lies we’re told?
Are you willing to be sold
as human resource
judged by vacuous scores

From all the hours slaved away
We take nothing to our grave
This deal’s not worth it
It’s far from perfect

We’re being molded into a working machine
Another drudge that tries to clutch at all the garbage that sheens
Marching in straight lines into consuming stores
to get the newest gadget nurturing the corporate whores that keep us quiet

Do you believe the lies we’re told?
Are you ready to be sold
as human resource
judged by vacuous scores

From all the hours slaved away
We take nothing to our grave
This deal’s not worth it
It’s far from perfect
Track Name: Don't Wait
Lyrics:


Did you ever reflect at a moment in time
and found that the path you go
is rather a path that others lead
imposing their desire of security
on your aspirant mind
Did you then still follow that path
or did you turn away and rid yourself of this restraint?

I always found myself avoiding what lead to a disengagement
of the convenience I was used to
choosing ease and comfort over personal fulfillment
compromising challenge for certainty
but as my heart grows stronger I will no longer inhibit myself
to do the things that make me who I am

Don’t wait, don’t wait ‚till it’s too late
This is your life, your choice to take
Don’t waste don’t waste another breath
Because stagnation means the death

In all of our lifetime
We are searching to find
The truth that lies behind
A wall of lies of those who didn’t try

Don’t wait, don’t wait ‚till it’s too late
This is your life, your choice to take
Don’t waste don’t waste another breath
Because stagnation means the death

The death of all there is to be
Of all the potential yet to see
The death of all we might become
If we give up what we begun
Track Name: Our Story
Lyrics:

I’m standing at the sea
The sempiternal moor
Your deceit and misery
Descending to the ocean floor
A pulsing cemetery for all the memories we shared

Old flesh falls from my bones
The scars are finally bleached
Let water be the grave
I lay our story in
‘Cause a million miles deep is where I will keep your lies

Betrayed by the siren’s promise
I set my sails to find the one
That no one else was seeing
Despite of everyone who told me to stay away
Track Name: A Demon In An Angel's Skin
Lyrics:


Her lips are soft as silk, but inside she’s just rotten
A demon in an angel’s skin who’s better left forgotten
She loves the way they make her feel
They hate the way she makes them kneel

Her lips are soft as silk, inside she’s only rotten
A demon in an angel’s skin who’s better left forgotten
Don’t fall for her spell cause you’ll regret, the day on which you met
She lifts you up high in the sky then lets you fall, no wings to fly

Like servants for a tyrant queen that cuts their throats while kissing them
But yet again they come to her succumbing to this hateful girl

I’ve tried to make her mine /what fucking waste of time fighting for so long
Not really divine/ she likes tearing hearts to shreds/ no death-bed regrets

Her heart is full of shit/ a charming hypocrite
She sets your heart on fire, then stabs you in the back

You try to make it out ‘cause you were kept a prisoner in her net
But yet again you come to her, succumbing to this vicious girl

I’ve tried to make her mine /what fucking waste of time fighting for so long
Not really divine/ she likes tearing hearts to shreds/ no death-bed regrets

Her lips were soft as silk but inside she was only rotten
A demon in an angel’s skin that I have forgotten

I won’t try to make her mine/ what fucking waste of time to fight for so long
Not really divine/ she would tear my heart to shreds, without death-bed regrets
Track Name: Worlds Falling Apart
Lyrics:

They spit their breath to make you feel
Like the artificial hell is real
With all that tries to pull you down
I will never let you drown

A prison built with hidden stones
Cardboard demons seize the throne
But parasites will not return
If they see their foundation burn

Divided tongues and poisoned teeth
Won’t bring you to your knees
(But even if you fall, we'll always rise above them all)
Even old worlds falling apart
Can’t break your golden heart
(As debris falls from the sky we wave our flags and raise them high)

And in the wake of a new day
We face the truth we feared to say
Use the stones of walls we broke
To build of path of new found hope

The only prison is your mind
so leave the numbing pain behind
this is the only spark you need
to get you back on your two feet

Divided tongues and poisoned teeth
Won’t bring you to your knees
(But even if you fall, we'll always rise above them all)
Even old worlds falling apart
Can’t break your golden heart
(As debris falls from the sky we wave our flags and raise them high)

Cause life will break us down
make us feel as if we drown
But we are stronger
Yes we are stronger

Divided tongues and poisoned teeth
Won’t bring you to your knees
(But even if you fall, we'll always rise above them all)
Even old worlds falling apart
Can’t break your golden heart
(As debris falls from the sky we wave our flags and raise them high)
Track Name: Contrition
Lyrics:

A perfect thought so endeavoured
A minor scratch leaves it shattered
Built up by desire to prove it’s worth
Torn down by the hand that gave birth
In imperfection lies the key
The liberating remedy

Contrition’s tearing me apart
When every mistake engraves a scar
Finding strength in the contrary
Of what perfection seems to be

Anticipation breeding frustration
Sickening reverberation
Drown out the sound of triumph
Shifting the mindset
Exclude regret
Each of my failures is another to chance to improve
Never forgiving is never real living
Opened eyes will realize that every night had light ensuing

Contrition’s tearing me apart
When every mistake engraves a scar
Finding strength in the contrary
Of what perfection seems to be
Track Name: Life Behind Dead Eyes
Lyrics:

Listening to the voice of a long forgotten memory
Following the trails of a person that you wish to be
On a road that is two-sided I see a face which is divided
Into anxiousness disguised and life behind dead eyes

You’re more than meets the eye
The foundation for embers to ignite
Lies within yourself
Throughout your darkest frights I will be your beacon
Guide you through the night
Revolution in your mind

Don’t be afraid to stand against what’s smothering your confidence
When memories pretend that you’re the one to make amends
For mistakes you’ve never done towards the abusing one
Rid yourself of all the lies to find life behind dead eyes

When I was torn to pieces you patched me up again
Relieved me from contrition, made me a better man
You taught me self-forgiveness, you taught me to let go
Of all my self-attrition from now forevermore

You’re more than meets the eye
The foundation for embers to ignite
Lies within yourself
Throughout your darkest frights I will be your beacon
Guide you through the night
Revolution in your mind
Track Name: Endless
Lyrics:

Push it further
Push it farther
Out of mind
Behind the border

Raise the wall
Erase the cancer
Leave behind
And mask the answer

Here I stand, surrounded by the ocean
(unleashing what is left of me)
Embrace this life and let me drift apart
(devoured by infinity)

I just want to fade away into the endless
A shadow crawls through me smothering my light
Please just let me fade away out of this prison of thought

In my memory
Grows the enemy
For suppression
Is regression

Here I stand, surrounded by the ocean
(embracingwhat is left of me)
Rejoicing life before I fall apart
(devoured by infinity)
