LOVELY LOVELIE Get back to your beds, hide in your hole You lovers collapse while facing your fall A paradise will no longer exist, peace and love can no longer resist Erupting fear breaking the wall Lovely lovelie Our garden, destroyed, taken by storm We‘re bringing the harm, the hideous swarm A love so deep, now determined to die, wrapped and muffled by hate Get back to your beds, here comes the storm Lovely lovelie Get back to your beds, hide in your hole A love so deep, now determined to fall Get back to your beds, facing your fall Erupting fear tearing down every wall Get back to your beds, hide in your … Lovely lovelie Lovely, lovely lie …
2.
ANOTHER SORT OF HOMECOMING The times were terrifying and coldness wrapped me up I‘d been sent to see, to seek, to save A long way to the top How they turned their lives into a mellow mass: how they shed their feelings and their souls forgot about the past So, day by day I denied my moaning heart and repelled temptation, brave and strong, to join and fall apart Now it‘s time to change My longing growing strong Leave this place and coming home again is what I really want GO! Time to return to my ground GO! I have to leave these souls I found GO! Time to rest under the shield GO! Energy! Another sort of coming home
3.
SOUL SHELTER (Inside Of Me) Bringing back the sunshine Remembering the light A place attacked from outside I keep this place inside Inside of me, inside of me Garden of completeness A warm and tender light A place attacked by darkness Don‘t hide this place inside Soul Shelter – Inside of me, inside of me Soul Shelter – Inside of me, inside of you Silent is the inside All quiet now and clear Knocking from the outside: denial, hate and fear Soul Shelter – Inside of me, inside of me Soul Shelter – Inside of me, inside of you

MOVEMENTS Just a glimpse of something lost, flickering in my mind Like a memory from the past, echoing Ground control, lost control, no control In a place where I belonged: echoes from the past In a time I called my home, wandering Ground control, lost control, no control How I missed the ones I loved, moments passing by Still I‘m waiting for the call, remembering Ground control, lost control, no control Movements Comes a time, comes a time of reunion Comes a place, comes a place of communion Comes a time, comes a time of affection Comes a place, comes a place of attraction Comes a time, comes a time when we meet again Comes a place, comes a place where we meet again Comes a time, comes a time when we love again Comes a place, comes a place where we live again Stop and rest – consider and remember Stop the quest – rethink and now remember Rest, remain – and realize amazing grace, retain – the echoes of your living Go and see – now realize the beauty Go and turn – now realize the grace Go, return – get hold of all the beauty Go and feel – compassion to embrace Movements Comes a time, comes a time when we meet again Comes a time of reunion Comes a place, comes a place where we meet again Comes a place of communion Comes a time, comes a time when we love again Comes a time of affection Comes a place, comes a place where we live again Comes a place of attraction Realize the grace Realize the beauty now Echoes from the past Passion to embrace Movements

COME AND FOLLOW Follow me, take my hand Don‘t look back, just trust my way Follow me, leave this place I will take you far away Watch my shades: familiar shape with sweetest taste of the unknown Bite into tender doom Worship and adore my throne Beautiful but treacherous Rotten to the bone Serpentine but sensual A queen of hearts dethroned Now you love, now you know: adoration brings the light Idolize, now you‘re lost I take you to the other side Beautiful but treacherous Rotten to the bone Serpentine but sensual A queen of hearts dethroned Come on follow me into the darkness Come and follow me, follow my love Come on follow me, beauty is transforming Come on follow me into the dark

FRIENDS ARE FALLING Open your arms after closing your thinking for ages Missing the trust that you lost on your way to the stars Fighting the hating has taught you to hate for ages Remind you your mission was based on a vision of love Open your mind to the memory of love and affection Missing your friends who vanished while you‘ve been away Yearning for turning to someone so close and familiar Remind you your mission was based on a vision of faith Falling, friends are falling Falling and lost in a vision of trust Falling but lost in my vision of trust Open your heart to some gratitude, kindness and friendship Empathy melting the ice that‘s enclosing your soul Yearning for turning to someone so close and devoted Remind you your mission was based on a vision of trust Falling, friends are falling Falling and lost in a vision of trust A vision of love and a vision of trust Open your heart after closing your spirit for ages Missing the feelings you lost on your way to the stars Fighting the hating has taught you to hate for ages Remind you your mission was based on a vision of love Falling, friends are falling Falling but lost in a vision of trust My vision of faith and my vision of trust Falling but lost in my vision of trust Falling for ages, falling from the stars

FIRE! FIRE! (Death Of A Giant) Facing the past, deeply crooked for ages Annual rings of a life, witnessing hope Murder and death, lovers and birth, closely entwined The battle of darkness and light, observer of life Here on the hill, bound in hostile surroundings Cracks in the bleeding wood: scars and remains Here all alone, shelter and symbol of freedom: a giant, so massive and old: gentle but strong Tearing down to the ground Burning heat, smoking coal Fire! Fire! Burning down to the ground Timber heart, holy wood Fire! Fire! Facing the day, changing the soul of perception Father of life, father of fire and death Cold is the night , warm is the shine of the torch Now and forever: deep is the heart of the flame Tearing down to the ground Burning heat, smoking coal Fire! Fire! Burning down to the ground Timber heart, holy wood Fire! Fire!

FELLOW PEACEMAKERS Will she find, will she find, will she find? Withered blossoms falling down to earth All she left alone Nothing else than footprints of the years before they reached her home Will she find, will she find, will she find? Looking back: she missed her final choice Mandatory hate Where’s the place? Now listening to her heart Hope it‘s not too late Start a new world, so far up above Waiting to return Gathering the troops of heart and soul Sowing seeds of love And she will find her way! Will she find, will she find, will she find? Will she find, will she find, will she find: fellow peacemakers? She will find, she will find, she will find: fellow peacemakers! We will find, we will find, we will find: fellow peacemakers!

about

AMORETUM Vol. 1, the fifth BLACK SPACE RIDERS album, is here!
The internationally acclaimed predecessor REFUGEEUM brought the band renown with its mixture of thoughtful, sensitive themes and hard, atmospheric rock. Two years have passed since then, two years in which the world has not necessarily become a better place in the eyes of most people.
War, terror, displacement, destruction, rejection and nationalism dominate the headlines. Or, as a wise little green fellow once said: “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering”.
“All you need is love”, countered the BEATLES in 1967. The response of BLACK SPACE RIDERS in 2018 is “AMORETUM”, a made-up word comprising “amor” and “arboretum” to symbolize a protective garden and a germ seed of love. And so the new song cycle of BLACK SPACE RIDERS is all about the conflict between fear-hate-rejection-darkness on the one hand, and love-empathy-care-light on the other. For, how else should we overcome hate, if not with love?
Musically, this conflict is consistently put into practice by a band that beats its own path and is constantly developing. The electronic experiments of the BEYOND REFUGEEUM EP of 2016 have been reduced sonically and cleverly integrated into the powerfully sounding songs. Between fat, dirty riffs and trippy delays, everything that sounds good is allowed; the album is interspersed with a flowing groove throughout and an ever-present atmosphere that embraces the listener. Heavy, sometimes proggy, often psychedelic, always engaging and almost catchy and danceable, AMORETUM Vol. 1 takes us by the hand, shows us the dark side, and then wants to give us the hope back that we so often painfully miss.
The album flows from song to song as if from a single cast. The listener wonders after 45 minutes whether everything is really already over, and wants to go back to the beginning again immediately.
But of course everything is not over after 45 minutes in the world of BLACK SPACE RIDERS. The band also announces a second chapter for 2018 ... AMORETUM Vol. 2 is waiting for us, while we take pleasure from Vol. 1 and patiently wait for the further work.
