It will be



The only Song on the new EP that isn't an instrumental Song is actually quite old. The verses used to be a part of another song which I scratched because I didn't enjoy playing it. Again this song deals with Anxiety. The message is hopelessness and whatever you try it will always be in vain. 
This is underlined by the repetitive ''It will be in vain'' lines at the beginning, the end and during the song. The Chorus (''Oh these shoes ah. They take me. Where I want to go ah. Down new roads.'') is the message of hope. It's about exploring new things in life or looking at things in a different way. 




Lyrics:
It will be in vain
It will be in vain
It will be in vain
It will be in vain

This is my side. It’s my chosen pain.
To live or to die. 
Should you try…
It’s washed away
Someone is kind but I’m afraid

How can you continue?
Is that so easy?
How can you beat me?
It’s so deceiving

Oh these shoes ah
They take me
Where I want to go ah
Down new roads

It will be in vain
It will be in vain
It will be in vain
It will be in vain

How can you continue?
Is that so easy?
How can you beat me?
It’s so deceiving

Oh these shoes ah
They take me
Where I want to go ah
Down new roads

Stray arrows hitting us
I would hurt even more in the core

Oh these shoes ah
They take me
Where I want to go ah
Down new roads

It will be in vain
It will be in vain
It will be in vain
It will be in vain

Babylon


This is the first release and will be part of the album ''Watching The Stars Vol, 2.''.
Lyrics:
Her wall has fallen. Beneath her once mighty gates lie the dead
Flames killed father and brother. Floods killed sister and mother
Knifes in the ocean. It slows down. Slow motion.
Babylon is dead. 
These waters stole our city. Our kids swallowed in the see
How didn't we see the warning signs? Were we all blind?
Knifes in the ocean. It slows down. Slow motion.
Babylon is dead.

This ain't Easy



Written towards the end of 2018 this song has Brexit and migrant crossings via boat in mind. I imagined my dad and me sitting at Calais port missing our ferry to England. The first Verse really is about Brexit and it's effect on us two individuals as well as the economy. Here the shutdown of the ''ferry station'' is in one sense of course the actual port but also European and British Industry. The ''small world'' is Britain and the ''sailor''- a symbol for someone who has once seen the world and conquered it- are its people. ''Ropes'' can either be analysed as suicide of the British people or that the sailor throws the rope to me and my dad trying to pull us in. I'll leave that open to interpretation. After the more personal note I conclude that Brexit isn't easy for me, my dad, Britain and Europe.

Then back to the refugee crisis. The ''European dream'' is similar to the American dream which we all know. This verse is more to the point then the first verse. Again I conclude that this isn't easy for us. This time I mean the refugees. The parallels between my dad and me and refugees is an exaggeration, after all I have never had to go through such tragedy. But Brexit and The Refugee Crisis are two important topics which we will have to cope with for years to come. There is probably a lot more I could say about these topics and there is a lot more to be analysed in these lyrics but the message is quite basic. It just expresses my feelings towards the two subjects.


Lyrics:

The ferry station's closed
No boats to take us home
And I don't want to be here down at this peer
It's a small world
The sailor throws his ropes
As he looks at me down at the sea
I look at my dad
He is looking sad
Thinking about home thinking he's alone

Cause this ain't easy for us
Cause this ain't easy nor is it just

Migrants cross the seas hoping they'll be free
Dreaming of the new European dream
They're living on a boat there's water in their throats
Hoping they'll reach land away from old old sands

Cause this ain't easy for us
Cause this ain't easy nor is it just

Wise Man


Let there be pain. Enough to show us happiness.
Let there be sorrow. Enough so we don't take love for granted.
A Wise man said I should listen to an elder. They are normally right.
A Wise man said I should listen to an elder. They are normally right.
He's dead now. Long live his memory. 
He came and he went. There is nothing of him left.
A Wise man said I should listen to an elder. They are normally right.
