Track Name: What of Us - Sunday Afternoon
the "all lives matter" rebuttal is just an endorsement for a racist system that acts complicit in the act of murder.
What does this say about the ethics of a mind that feels uneasy by a simple call for justice?
Track Name: What of Us - Award Show Highlights
when the ownership you claimed is brought to question by the voice you stifled.
the privilage to claim space is not exclusive to a gender role.
accountability is calling your name
i hope it lights the flame that burns you down.
Track Name: What of Us - Horse and Sparrow
How long until the bottom falls out?
This collapse is at our own hands
Starving for more and we’re tired of their scraps

empty hands set ablaze
waiting for this trickle down
A debt unpaid

Hoarders in ivory towers never loosen their grips
But a rising tide lifts all boats

In return what did we expect from naïveté on the grandest scale?

No wage, no growth, no chance
no future

the gap only widens
long term reigns hollow
Track Name: What of Us - Imaginary Lines
Now is time
To give back

Pushing out the ones
Who only had a dream
And sought opportunity

To lead a life
provide for themselves
To give the same chance

Borders are invisible lines
But we are all people

Lest we forget
that we did the same

Created caricatures
And won’t undo
the damage done

The gray has turned
to black and white
How hard is it to see that
no human is illegal?

That richest country on earth
Can welcome the new with open arms
Track Name: What of Us - 45
Sitting at a table, from across the room... They asked, Where do you see yourself in five years? Speechless, I stumble to find an answer because honestly I don’t know. With the Current “leadership” that’s in place, anyone with a “different” looking face, everyone that I love, isnt safe. So Who the fuck has any clue where any of us will be in a year from now.
Track Name: Sur L'eau - Fessel
wir lernten uns einfach so kennen
ohne irgendwelche anforderungen an uns zu stellen
ohne reden zu schwingen
ohne um die gunst des andren zu ringen
aus nem wochenende wurden monate ohne ende
tage ohne grau erinnerst du dich?
aber zusammen
immer zusammen unterwegs

und dann plötzlich bist du fort
und deine letzten worte
klingen weiter in meinem ohr
denn du hast gesagt
ja du hast genau gesagt
wenn doch die welt so einfach wär
und ich denke immerfort
wenn du nicht gegangen wärst
und ich denke denke denke immerfort
was wäre wenn du nicht gegangen wärst
ohne dich
ohne dich
Track Name: Sur L'eau - Kief Tolle
du wolltest immer mehr erreichen
als nur nach den sternen zu greifen
und du hoffst
dass es geht
und du weisst
dass du stirbst
Track Name: Sur L'eau - Tief Kolle
In einem so kurzen leben
ungekürzt zu sehn
immer vor einer wand zu stehn
alles falsch fühlen auf allen ebnen
wie soll man dem falschen begegnen
was soll einen weg ebnen
vor den häusern der regen?
