"21st century hybrid-rock, with quite a bit of punk and nu-metal shining through."
(The Portal Magazine)

The voice of our female singer Jackie in combination with catchy instrumental hooklines lets us sound unique.

Our shows are optically pimped with synchronized video clips.

Biography

Though we are somewhere in the NuMetal/Alternative Rock genre, we always try to find our own style. In contrast to most other bands in this genre, we have a female singer (Jackie).

She has the ability to find this catchy melodies that connect congenial to the powerful and catchy musical fundament.

The largely autobiographical lyrics (eg, "Living A Lie," "I Don't Fit" or "In My Mirror") give the whole thing a dark and earnest touch. But in spite of this, we don't take ourselves too seriously as ironical songs like "Flesh" or "Noisy Neighbours" show.

We always want to expand our artistic horizon and never stand still. So we improved our skills in many ways the last years. Examples are the specially produced video clips for our live shows that are shown via projector, the lavishly website, co-productions with artists from other musical genres, the composition of film music and last but not least the music videos of the recent years that were made with much love and passion.

But whatever we do primarily we are a rock band. So come to our shows and listen to our music.

Lyrics

I Don't Fit

Written By: Bernd Bloedorn

I don't fit – never did. I am not like you.
I don't fit – never will – never promised to.
I don't fit – never did - boaring equality.
I don't fit - never will.

Try to be the best you can in everything!
Don't you waste your time and energy with all those unimportant things.
Life is too tough for loosers and being second is the same than to be the last one.

Make some money, buy a car.
Make career and travel far.
Run from yourself and let the doctors tell you who you are.
Your life's a waste when your not famous and rich and your existence counts for no one.

I deny living like you, feeling like you. Keep your fucking fame.
I deny
I don't fit in

Refrain 2
I don't fit – never did. I am not like you. (I'm not)
I don't fit – never will – never promised to. (don't you know?)
I don't fit – never did - boaring equality. (so bad)
I don't fit - never will.
I'm not fucking like you! (I'm not fucking like you!)
I'm not fucking like you!

Hurry hurry till you fall.
Don't you care for them at all.
'cause being second is the same than beeing last one.

I never fit.
No I don't fit.
No, no, no
I never fit. No!

Take a pill when you feel down.
When you need someone around get yourself a drink and celebrate your coolness.
Don't you show your tears or pain.
They may think you are insane.
Not usefull anymore! They kick you off their guestbook.

I don't fit – never did. I am not like you.
I don't fit – never will – never promised to.
I don't fit – never did - boaring equality.
I don't fit - never will.

I'm not fucking like you! (I'm not fucking like you!)
I'm not fucking like you! (I'm not fucking like you!)
I'm not fucking like you! (I'm not fucking like you!)
I'm not fucking like you!

In My Mirror

Written By: Bernd Bloedorn

Pretty one where have you been all those years?

My pretty one.

Pretty one tell me where have you been.
To loose the focus on our unit was our major sin.
Oh pretty one how could I ever let you go.
Nothing will come between us ever again you know.

Spirit of free will
Hear it in your scream.
Feel your lust for life.
Saw you in my dreams.
Now your coming back to make me whole again.
I feel you inside.
No more fear in me.
Fill me up with love
Set my spirit free.
Want you take your place again.

Pretty baby let me take care for you.
Don't mean to harm you that way. I just had no clue.
We did not show us much of our sensitivity
but you mean nothing less than the world to me.

Spirit of free will
Hear it in your scream.
Feel your lust for life.
Saw you in my dreams.
Now your coming back to make me whole again.

I feel you inside.
Free me from the pain
cause without your pride
I will go insane.
Want you take your place in my mirror again?
In my mirror.

Won't you take your place in my mirror again
my pretty one.

All the tears you've cried 'cause my
destructive actions and my lies they hurt.
Come and take your place in my mirror again.

Come and take your place in my mirror again,
in my mirror.
My pretty one. Take your place in my mirror.

Spirit of free will
Hear it in your scream.
Feel your lust for life.
Saw you in my dreams.
Now your coming back to make me whole again.
I feel you inside.
Free me from the pain
cause without your pride
I will go insane.
Want you take your place in my mirror again?
My pretty one.

Alien

Written By: Bernd Bloedorn

I'm running around my laboratory-cage
infected with all of the pain of the world.
I'm like a crash-test-dummy for your life.
You need me.
You use to watch me with all that strange desire.
Authenticity is the drug you need to get.
Amazing what we creatures are able to bear.
You need me to feel.

Deep inside I just wanne be like you.
Deep inside I just need to be loved - Your world just scares me to death.

Alien - Your people scare me to death.
Alien – I am different
Your whole world scares me to death.
Alien - Your people scare me to death.
Alien – I am different
Your whole world scares me to death.

You don't have the senses for hyper-pain.
Go on vivisecting me. You won't understand.
My suffering gives you adrenalin.
You need me.
You absorb my blood and my tears like vitamins.
Desperately seeking for some kind of thrill.
You're deaf and blind with your rotten senses.
You need me to feel.

Deep inside I just wanne be like you - Don't scrunch me. I'm bleeding.
Deep inside I just wanne be loved.

Alien - you scare me to death.
Alien - Don't point your fingers on me.

Alien - Your people scare me to death.
Alien – Your whole world scares me to death.
Alien - Your people scare me to death.
Alien – I am different
Your whole world scares me to death.
Alien
Alien – I am different

Living A Lie

Written By: Bernd Bloedorn

It may seem like I'm happy 'cause I show my happy face
so that no one has to see the real me inside.
It may seem like I'm strong and full of self-confidence
but I'm shivering when you look me in the eyes.

Yes I would die for you, living a lie for you.
I'm gonna try, break down and cry, fight kill and die.
Yes I would die for you, living a lie for you.
I'm gonna try. Fake when I sigh. Yell till I die.

I am thankfull that you care for me and try to understand
but it's impossible to free these little child.
She is living deep, deep down inside of the woman you think you know.
She is full of fear and anger, running wild.

But she would die for you, living a lie for you.
She's gonna try, break down and cry, fight kill and die.
Yes I would die for you, living a lie for you.
I'm gonna try, fake when I sigh, yell till I die.

Yes I need you. I would die for you.
Yes I love you. Yes I'm living a lie.
Yes I'm full of fear but I'm gonna try
to play my role till I die.

gonna die
die
gonna die
die

Seems like I'm happy 'cause I show my happy face.
You'll never see the shadow that's inside.
It may seem like I'm strong and full of self-confidence.
Sometimes a salty tear run out of my eyes.

But she would die for you, living a lie for you.
She's gonna try, break down and cry, fight kill and die.
Yes I would die for you, living a lie for you.
I'm gonna try, fake when I sigh, yell till I die.

Scarborough Fair

Written By: Bernd Bloedorn

Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
Remember me to one who lives there.
For he once was a true love of mine.

Tell him to make me a cambric shirt.
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
Without no seam nor fine needlework.
And then he’ll be a true love of mine.

Tell him to wash it in yonder dry well. (It's too far from home.)
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. (Don't know someone there)
Which never sprung water nor rain ever fell. (Planning to go there some time)
And then he’ll be a true love of mine.

Some time. Some time. Some time. Some time.

Ask him to find me an acre of land. (Building a home for our children)
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. (Be proud and strong)
Between the salt water and the sea-sand. (miss him so much)
For then he’ll be a true love of mine.

He's gone. He's gone. He's gone. He's gone.

Have you ever been to Scarborough Fair? (Grass always greener)
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme, (It's greener out there)
Remember me to one who lives there. (Forgot what his name was.)
For he once was a true love of mine. (Forgot – his name)
For then he'll be a true love of mine.

Painkiller

Written By: Bernd Bloedorn

My head is aching very bad
and the noise that drives me mad.
My life has gone to pieces yet.
Just want to hole up in my bed.

Can't stand it anymore, so come on please doc prescribe me more.
Just give me more of my medicine. I need my painkiller.
painkiller – Killer - painkiller

Give me a chance to find some sleep.
I feel the pain so very deep inside.
Need to recover and to heal.
Just trying to survive another night

Give me my painkiller.
Painkiller
Give me my painkiller.

Can't stand it anymore. So come on please doc prescribe me more.
Just give me more of my medicine. I need my painkiller.
Painkiller - Painkiller
I need my painkiller

I need my pills. I need them now!
Oh - I need my painkiller.
I need my pills. I need them now!
I need my painkiller.

Painkiller
I need my painkiller.

Can't stand it anymore. So come on please doc prescribe me more.
Just give me more of my medicine. I need my painkiller.
Painkiller - Painkiller
I need my painkiller.
I need my painkiller.
Killer
Painkiller
Killer
I need my pain.
