Forever and a day, I will stand behind the wheels Think of luck, think of fate, and in time I will reveal I always make young lovers choose, is it joy or is it pain To hold on or to let go, I'm the king of yesterday Yesterday, yesterday Forever and a day, young men go out and kill Old man, go spill your wine, ride your horse to marble hill And so we spill our damaged wants, on the hills across the sea On the road and in the fields, I'm on my knees, it weakens me I always make young lovers choose, is it joy or is it pain To hold on or to let go, I'm the king of yesterday Yesterday, yesterday, yesterday, yesterday Rest your head on my shoulder Where are you running to? Rest your head on my Rest your head on my shoulder Where are you running to? Rest your head on my

She wants to go out, pick some flowers She wants to go out, play catch the sun Says she doesn't wanna work, not this summer Oh, she doesn't wanna work, any day soon He wants to go out, spread some fire He wants to go out, spit his truth Says he doesn't wanna work, not this summer Oh, he doesn't wanna work, any day soon What do you think they're running from? The modern man's anger and the pendulum Tic tic tic, the pendulum Every new day there's a morning swarm Tic tic tic, the pendulum Every new day there's a morning swarm Tic tic tic, the pendulum Every modern man has a black suit on Tic tic tic, the pendulum Every new day there's a morning swarm We say tic tic, tic tic, tic tic, tic tic

The Teacher 04:15
She wanted to go out and travel the world by herself She told me when I sat beside her, “Prepare for a fight!” So I taught her to lie, I taught her to lie, I taught her to lie When I traveled the world, I had learned there are little things worse Than giving up on your wantings, so I taught her to rise, I taught her to rise And stepping on stones in the dust coloured roads was an act of joy to her Then she broke a leg and fell on her knees, and I carried her to St. West And I taught her to dream, I taught her to dream, I taught her to dream Then she fell asleep, peacefully smiling in bliss I held her in my arms, and when she woke up she denied getting kissed So I taught her to leave, I taught her to leave, I taught her to leave I gave her the tools for the road, for the sky For the sea, for the hills and the nights I taught her to dream and always be free And flee from emptiness I taught her to dream

Go to war, fill your heart with pain Shoot your gun and dance Travel far, may the fire keep you warm And when the fighting starts, you grin and dance Walk through walls, do your trick and then Let the rain do its thing See me fall, see me rise again Through it all, be my friend And dance the devil, put your good shoes on And your house becomes her house You can dance the devil, put your good shoes on And your house becomes her house It's not what you've built it for It's not what you've built it for It's not what you've built it for It's not what you've built it for It's not what you've built it for It's not what you've built it for It's not what you've built it for It's not what you've built it for

The Void 04:12
Step into the void, lay down your sorrow Let your heart enjoy the promise of tomorrow And Blisters left alone, burn away the feathers Oh, songbird of old, walk on with lightness And breathe in, and sleep well And breathe out, and sleep on And tangled up in white, taping conversation Listen to the numbed, hovering in suburbs And breathe in, and sleep well And breathe out, and sleep on My mind is deaf, my heart says “okay!” Everyone in here is a revolutionary now My mind is deaf, my heart says “okay!” Everyone in here is a revolutionary now

Let Go 04:24
I've been walking down the roads so long, I don't know I've been running up that hill so long, I don't know Constant breathing of the fiery fish, oh no Whisper in my ear your secret wish, oh no, oh baby no Let go, I'm tired of you testing me Let go, I'm tired and I won't believe Fair trade coffee good and TV evil, I see Tell me anything I don't believe, I see Sit down with me in a private park And we watch ourselves become more and more green We'll be one with the grass, all these stories don't last Oh no, oh baby no Let go, I'm tired of you testing me Let go, I'm tired and I won't believe And sleepless little poet, I call your name to the moon When love comes to you, you hide with the dead Love comes and goes, love comes and goes Love comes and goes And the ships in the woods Feast on hope

Dear Ava 03:20
Dear Ava, I'm sitting on the roof again Freezing to sleep again Until my spaceship lands Dear Ava, see the little grey men How they watch me weep again Grey skin, grey eyes and big-a-brain Dear Ava, dear Ava Watch my spaceship land Dear Ava, I'm standing on a bridge again Watching distant ships again Dear Ava, I am drunk again Dear Ava, I see happy faces And it seems I lately am lost Dear Ava, dear Ava Watch my spaceship land

about

White Noise was recorded between September 2013 and February 2014, in Hamburg and Berlin, with producer Bryan Pugh from New York City. We locked ourselves up in the studio and laid down a few tracks with full band setup: Drums, bass, electric guitars and piano. These are songs that have survived the streets of Europe and their first recordings.
