Self-exultation versus the lure of love. The perfection of a moment and its inevitable oblivion. Hope for the common good paralyzed by the susceptibility of the flesh. Everything you once believed in.

Biography

Self-exultation versus the lure of love. The perfection of a moment and its inevitable oblivion. Hope for the common good paralyzed by the susceptibility of the flesh. Everything you once believed in.

Influenced by the humble and savage Bavarian village disco scene. Also influenced by Roger Waters, Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley, Matthew Good, Blind Melon. With the modern marvel of lead-acid battery power, I am able to play both inside and outdoor public venues as much as possible. My favorite venues are the Vancouver Art Gallery and the Kitsilano Showboat. Checked out the Toronto scene in 2000.

Will produce first full length professionally recorded album in 2008 (songs posted here at this time are home demos).

Lyrics

I Belong

Written By: Aaron Bergbusch

Tell me the answer -
Any other answer -
I belong.
There was supposed to be an answer for it all.

I remember still,
It seemed I felt the combined will
Of a thousand.
And in the moment,
I knew I could do no wrong.

Tell me the answer -
Any other answer -
I belong.
There was supposed to be an answer for it all.

I journeyed to the dragon's lair,
And eyed the virgin lying there.
I raised my sword and plunged it deep,
But the dragon's spell had blinded me.
Before me lay the virgin slain,
My heart broke ere I felt the flame.
I tried to hold on… I tried!
But it slipped through my fingers
And was gone.

Tell me the answer -
Any other answer -
I belong.
There was supposed to be an answer for it all.

Can't Stand Still

Written By: Aaron Bergbusch

What do the chemicals say today?
They say, ‘I love your beautiful body’.
More beautiful than the glacier blue.
Dirty, dirty… so clean.
One day I'll pause to love you properly.

Can't stand still, got to run, got to make a run,
Can't stand still, got to make a run,
Got to run, run, run!

This world is no mistake.
Global culture - mediocrity.
The city a sloppy group hug.
Let us all smile happily.

Surround me, seduce me,
Make me your own.
Let me bare my soul,
'Cause I can't bear it alone.

It's not what you are,
It's what you dream.

One day I'll pause,
And learn to love you properly.
