Lyrics

Pleasure To Burn

Written By: Martin Birke

Hello darkness my old friend
i've come to comfort you again

and i'm know by accusations
and i'm known by my diseased
imagination

goodbye my warm and heartfelt friends
i'm taking refuge in my head

and i'm known by reputation
and i'm known by my diseased
preoccupations

known by disease
known by disease
known by disease
known by disease

Always Empty

Written By: Martin Birke

Come be my witness, you won't want to miss this
as my worlds coming down around me in this distress

who am i
where do i come from
and how long do i have left

my face of easy features, this place of hidden pictures
and i've been there , and i've done that
and i feel so and i am so empty..

my hands are shaking, and now my body's breaking
this emptiness is taking , my fulfillment is forsaken

who are you
where do you come from
and what do you want with me

have you been there, and done that , is there something that still leaves you empty..

i've been there..and i've done that
and i feel so….
i've been there..and i've done that
and i feel so and i am so….

Set List

Genre Peak opens with ominus droning ghostly noise tones.. and breaks into the electro-pop of 'Bring Me the World ', followed by the electro-trance funk of 'Pleasure to Burn', after that the groove dance pop of 'Always Empty', 'Skin', 'Night Falls on Chance' and several other tracks like the epic "Point of no Return'-(a real crowd pleaser!) that keep all eyes and ears glued to our stage presence and we close with the ambient melodic-anguish of "Ends of the Earth". All in all leaving people wanting more and selling CDs by the dozen , a performance you will not forget.

All in all high energy, dance rock with moody interludes and electronica.
