Biography

There are a lot of things that could be said about YOUR INNER DURDEN like „innovative with a fresh sound, reinventing the wheel with music and far away from typical genres…” Seems like a good read, but would be total BS. YOUR INNER DURDEN, that’s five guys with the heart on the right place and with love for the music of their younger years. Surely there are many bands that know how to handle their instruments better but do they have as much fun doing so? I can’t tell. What I can tell is that YOUR INNER DURDEN plays punk rock without compromises – no gimmicks, no funny coloured homepages and no fuckin’ way that anything is gonna change that. There’s no money to be made in the music business nowadays so why not just make music with your heart and soul and real enthusiasm. Singing along, dancing and leaving the necessities of the daily grind behind cause EVERY DAY IS A HOLIDAY with YOUR INNER DURDEN.

Lyrics

Never paid my dues

Written By: Your Inner Durden

Everyone is guilty
Guilty just as me
Everyone is guilty as part of
Our society

See, I told you I’m not breaking
And I will not back down
The goal - not to show weakness
Hold the fort and not the town

And I never paid my dues
All I do is sing the blues
And I never paid my dues
All I do is sing the blues

It’s not a win-win situation
At least not for you
I will get my bonus
And there’s nothing you can do

To keep your job or keep your house
I´m the cat – you’re just the mouse
To keep your job or keep your house
I´m the cat – you’re just the mouse

And I never paid my dues
All I do is sing the blues
And I never paid my dues
All I do is sing the blues

Our everyday life
Is bound by laws
But when we talk about economy
It’s total anarchy

We trusted non-existing morals
To beat the oh-so-human greed
And now it’s pretty obvious
We didn’t get what we need

But we got what we deserved
We got what we deserved
We got what we deserved

Failure and Excuses

Written By: Your Inner Durden

When falling is so easy
The hardest thing is rising up
Or masquerading the whole fact
That you came from the top

And so failing is so easy
It’s impossible to succeed
It’s not easy to maintain all the things
That we think that we need

And like a phoenix from the ashes
We will rise again
And again, and again, and again

Like a phoenix from the ashes
We will rise again
And again, and again, and again

So while we discuss it all once more
I see her saying what we need to do
But all I hear is tactics for
Her own benefits

Measuring with different standards
And the future in the eyes
How she handled these decisions
Was not a big surprise

And like a phoenix from the ashes
We will rise again
And again, and again, and again

Like a phoenix from the ashes
We will rise again
And again, and again, and again

When falling is so easy
The convenient thing is falling down
Never knowing what
The day would bring

Cause failing is so easy
There’s nothing to expect
Use this power
To overcome the past
And resurrect
Resurrect
Resurrect
