about

Yellowknife Cologne, Germany

Ein Ort in der Weite Kanadas. Am Ufer des Großen Sklavensees. Nach dem Goldrausch.
Ein Platzhalter für die Gelegenheit, das zu tun, für das all die Jahre kein Platz war.
Eine neue Möglichkeit, sich auf den Weg zu machen.
Aus der Enge des Alltags, der Arbeit und all dem, was an einem zerrt.
Es heißt neu orientieren, weil Kinderschuhe nicht mehr passen.

Track Name: Automatic
I like the patterns and I like the routine
when it all follows certain rules.
It must be well-ordered, screened and adjusted.
It's a matter of principle.

I am a robot I am a machine,
working on schematics made by someone else
but I think that's okay.

They always say that it must look like this and that
and I never challenge it.
Because it always has been done this way and it always will.

Track Name: Best Fit
I can hear what people think and what they feel.
When they see me, when we're standing face to face,
when our views converge.

Why do I have to explain my metaphoric words
to all the people I know
whereas strangers seem to understand?

I divided the heart in my chest to make me fit in better.
In this dual life I chose that's the only thing that matters.

Track Name: On/Off The Track
I need to get out but I don't know where.
I cannot see clearly but I cannot stay here.
I know that I must go. I know that I have to
but what I really want is too far away from here.
It's too far away from here.

What I need is time
And a guiding hand.
I am on my trail - slowly but constantly.
Because time does not stand still I need to to stay in motion.

I'm trying to get back. I am trying to get back on the track again.

I keep living on goals and wishes.
They're shrouded in mist but I know they are straight ahead
and I can feel I'm getting closer.
I do not lose sight of my masterplan
though something is blocking my view from time to time.

I can feel the weight on my shoulders, the pressure to find a perspective.

I'm trying to get back. I am trying to get back on the track again.
I'm trying to get back. I'm trying to.
