about

The title track from the new album - it summarizes my style well.

lyrics

When you force me to look inside myself
I decide to turn away

When you see me and when you're near me
I'm all but certain that I will fail

These shoes seem too large to fill
like a dwarf in a giant's trail

I was told I could be everything
now I'm like a clown on a funeral day

When you hold me, console me with your touch
My marrow screams in agony

When you caress me, you distress me
again I'm certain that I will fail

Like a pilgrim on his last legs
on a station with a thousand rails

He missed the last train home
and then the tracks were swept away

For a farewell to expectations
you need to be on your knees
to destroy self-accusation
you don't need a pious priest

For a farewell to expectations
you must survive the hardest ways
shake off the festered morals
and prepare for better days

When you force me to look inside myself
I decide to walk away

When you call me and when you're near me
you do seem kind of frail

When you hold me, console me with your touch
My marrow suffers silently

When you caress me, you distress me
but after all, I might prevail

about

Adder's Fork Lower Austria, Austria

This project
has been created to channel my musical ideas, influenced by a wide array of great bands like Sisters of Mercy, Talk Talk, Joy Division, The Sound and classic gothic rock/metal classics.

What I’m trying to achieve is a satisfying combination of these unforgettable sounds with the more hard-hitting elements of heavy metal, creating my vision of the music that guided me through my life.
