All I See 02:21
my heart has been divided but it's already grown strong my soul is under fire but i know where i belong my heart has been divided but it's already grown strong my mind is under pressure but the fire's burning on i can't eat, i can't sleep i can barely breath but that's good for me i feel the ach' in my guts and the pain in my eyes is all i see what turns me out? how should i be? what should i do? what's left of me? a million questions inside my head - inside i rage, my dream's not dead Juni inside i rage, my dream's not dead - a million questions inside my head a million chances that i won't take - many concerns remain unsaid all i see. the person. i want to be. and this person, how much i still have to learn, how much i have to take action, getting nothing in return always fighting misery, forever growing strong my mind is under pressure but the fire's burning on ___ for liner notes (english/german) and further informations please visit alwaystryingtofit.noblogs.org

Heavy Swell 02:04
fear or distress, wrath or grief - i don't know how to feel intentionally laying all in ruins - it still seems so unreal all bridges burnt within a few weeks - so far no sign of turning back and of course you're right, we have no fucking clue about the demons in your head in this setting of conditions it is obviously the prime aim to always act supportive and under-standing, it's true but please show me the one who get's this done i want to scream at you that you're a selfish prick who's forcing living hell for his parents and for all his friends watching him drown in heavy swell i want to shake you by the shoulder there's no need for you to stray i want to deeply look into your eyes and ask how could you throw your life away? away. away. you threw it all away and i hope i'll never scream that way, no confession of falling through but you should know i never thought i'd once be scared of you i don't want to sound cheesy, there are chances to resume meanwhile no one dares to talk 'bout you, but you are still in every room ___ for liner notes (english/german) and further informations please visit alwaystryingtofit.noblogs.org

Everyone 02:19
they're drowning, they're starving - they get rid of their right to live they're prisoned, they're tortured - cause their thoughts are too progressive they're oppressed, they're driven out - they don't fit in the big concept they're harassed, they're exploited - and you've got nothing to do with it be true to yourself and stop talking shit you're just a selfish fuck who's always trying to fit if it's not directly concerning you, you directly dismiss all you care about is trivial but that's just how it is no matter how many books you've read, no matter what's on your account the world get's driven to it's end while your life is safe and sound fuck everything you know if you don't know the word compassion and what is your compassion worth if it doesn't lead to action? I dare you, don't tell me you wouldn't know what's going on you've simply closed your eyes, your ears and keep living like this for years how can you be like that? how can you be like that? you say you're just like everyone - how can you be like that? ___ for liner notes (english/german) and further informations please visit alwaystryingtofit.noblogs.org

Glass Jars 02:23
how did she earn this treatment? it has to turn out bad run down without reversal - so better watch your fucking step what goes around comes around, all goes back in the end exploitation and destruction yet you still benefit you see your fortune and your leverage and what's left is neglect oh how i wish it all was easy like that it's not enough to just point fingers, no one can't take part in it so somehow everyone's accountable, i don't mean what you think we need a system change, a global system change to get the slightest change for mother earth to recreate it's not the flights you've booked, your plastic bags, the glass jars that you've bought the problem's still capitalism, no matter if it's green or not strangled by the curtains - innocent regret - crimson velvet's burning - examinate no chance for us to do it right, this train has long been out of sight as long as the cause isn't mentioned, efforts are illusions, just well-intentioned meanwhile i force myself to remember our own insignificance but havent't yet decided if that's comforting or devastating ___ for liner notes (english/german) and further informations please visit alwaystryingtofit.noblogs.org

my life's a contradiction, i am always torn inside and always questioning my biography, an erratic turning tide so what the fuck are you going to do, kid? main thing: more than just complain, forever ratting at the chains more than just quite pretend how far is too far? conformism, confrontation at some point you've got to choose your way - i did, do i have to stay? with prospects shining bright it's not easy to not lose sight wage work belongs abolished, optimization craze sucks for this purpose, for this outlook, in fact we work 'til we go nuts in fact we optimize our friendships, our leisure, ourselves and we better don't ask ourselves whether it's worth or not withstand the contradictions my life's a single restlessness, i'm always on the run each week is seven to-do-lists, until all tasks and me are done guilty conscience and demands to myself it's not easy to confess this cocktail just won't let me rest i can't stand lazyness and i hate me for that wage work belongs abolished, optimization craze sucks for this purpose, for this outlook, in fact we work 'til we go nuts in fact we optimize our friendships, our leisure, ourselves and we better don't ask ourselves whether it's worth or not we have to find a way. we have to find a way. we have to find a way. there has to be a way. ___ for liner notes (english/german) and further informations please visit alwaystryingtofit.noblogs.org

Despise You 01:48
no fucking wonder that it happened, german history as source supposedly isolated nazi scum now ruling the discourse we despise you and we fight you, better be sure the times will change no matter which gender, no matter which background all together against you: active, resolved, aloud we despise everything about you talking-time is over, there are no more words to say fight back against the nazi scum, tomorrow and everyday we will leave no fucking doubt that being nazi simply means you're getting major problems no need for discussions 'cause their words are killing too and everyone's responsible who didn't act but knew talking-time is over, there are no more words to say fight back against the nazi scum, tomorrow and everyday in every village, every town we won't stop 'til they're gone if the kids are united they'll be put where they belong ___ for liner notes (english/german) and further informations please visit alwaystryingtofit.noblogs.org

at least that's what we tell each other to protect our mental health and as we take what we can get i keep on telling this myself but of course we all are struggling and of course we're all in doubt fighting for a social image to witness we won't be aloud in our minds there's the big picture but even small ones are prevented how many of us got tired when their reverie has ended walls are raised, progress revised, all those getbacks everywhere and the roots of all this buried deeper than they ever were when i was sixteen i was sure how all would come along now six years later look at me, how could i've been so wrong? at least we try ___ for liner notes (english/german) and further informations please visit alwaystryingtofit.noblogs.org

about

As hardcore is more than music, we decided to explain the background to our lyrics in short liner notes. We hope to be able to contribute to discussion and exchange about the mentioned topics. To read those liner notes (german/english) please visit alwaystryingtofit.noblogs.org

Since our last release in March 2017 a lot has happened, we have been able to play in many great places and have met many great people - and we hope that this will go on a little longer. We'd like to thank everyone who supported us in one way or another, who keeps the scene going and engages against the new right madness day after day. Lots of love and take care of yourselves! And thank you for listening to our music.
