Biography

Smile And Burn is the typical example for things that do not usually happen quite as one expects them to. Do you know the feeling of going to the cinema watching a random motion picture you never heard about before and ending up with a new favorite movie at the end of the night? That is how this five piece pop punk outfit from Berlin feels when they think about the last months.

From their first sign of life in 2008 the band took the fast lane and breathed life into the German pop punk and hardcore scene. Stunning life shows and a highly appreciated debut album released by Fond Of Life Records in September 2010 tightened their position as one of the most promising and hard working German bands of that genre. Without any restrictions, Smile And Burn mixing aggressiveness with sweet melodies and heart filled hooks with rumbling rhythm. The result is a modern style of Pop Punk, unique and unpredictable.

Which once started as a side project became a passion and these guys take every chance to bring their music to the stage.

Lyrics

Silly Hats Only

Written By: Smile And Burn

how to be how to act
ask your role models
listen up they will tell you
what is necessary to live conformity

i never claimed to have the answer
i never claimed to know
i never claimed
to be the antidote to you

until the false
until the norm
turned into something beautifull

until the right
turns out so wrong
turns into what you fear the most

please tell me once again
how to be the better man

and we try so hard
we never want to be like you
why do we care so much?
almost pathetic just like you

i become
i become so cynical

i confess
we are all so typical

stereotype

write it down
on your flags
on these banners you carry above your head

count me out
count your guns
pull the trigger with a wagging finger
sometimes against your friends

We're Still Not Getting Anywhere

Written By: Smile And Burn

hey, have you heard the news today?
for your good intentions
it's way too late
the world will end and this is
your very last day

so please don't wail about that
they put forward th clock
stop to cry, open your fists and
wave the world godbye

and it really makes me wonder
will there be honesty at last?
why don't we tell anyone what
we're really thinking
who you're hating
and who you loved the most
about their shady charity that
you neer cared for

hey, guess you heard the news today?
that they made a big mistake
it's now official: tomorrow is
your very last day

you wonder where to put
all your last thoughts and hopes
what is right to say, what is
wrong to feel
what is less, less, less, less, less?

and it teally makes me wonder
is being honest all that bad?
you can try and kill these habits
it would be pointless to regret

when it's the time that we create
a clarity, a little spark of decency

we try so hard but we forget
our honesty, speaking out so carelessly

Tootles Has Returned To London

Written By: Smile And Burn

where will you be
when you get old
you´ve quit your childish dreams so long ago

get up, get late, go to work, get paid, live your life so one-dimensional
come home, come late, fall apart, every day, wake at night and maybe you think:

and that is all? (hey)
everything that i ever dreamed of is gone
everything had turned black and white
call it a day
pulling out the roadmaps to where i belong
maybe i feel home

who are we when nothing´s left of what we were
(i will never know)

shake of this collar
you´re tied to someone elses
ideals of dreamless, flawless nervelessness

get up, get late, try to work, too late, chase your dreams to live them finally
come home, come late, feel alive, every day, wake at night, maybe you won´t think:

and that is all? (hey)
everything that i ever dreamed of is gone
everything had turned black and white
call it a day
pulling out the roadmaps to where i belong
maybe i feel home

who are we when nothing´s left of what we were
(i will never know)

hey when did you lose your wings
you grew too fast to sing "we are the lost boys"

50 Frags Win The Watch

Written By: Smile And Burn

you haven´t heard
that i had laughed for hours

thank you for proofing me
that loathing you was delighting from the start

how many years it took to see it
that these days i wasted loving you will never come back at all

THIS SONG
was never meant
FOR YOU
to sing along
WITH US

My friend, my affection, no MY FOE!
it´s more than i just don´t care, I don´t care at all
these words are like bullets that´s FOR SURE!
Some things will never change
SOME THINGS WILL NEVER

You haven´t heard
that i had choked for hours
someday somehow you´ll understand
how false you really are

And i hope you won´t mistake me
but these years of wasting time with you will never come back at all

i won´t let you
get away with a slap on the wrist
doesn´t matter what you do
you made your bed NOW YOU MUST LIE IN IT!

you loose and maybe you start listening
you should know 50 frags will never win the game
