Artist: BLACK SPACE RIDERS

What, already?

The current album AMORETUM Vol. 1 has just been released, and is still on everyone’s lips, and now BLACK SPACE RIDERS are already following it with AMORETUM Vol. 2.
All the songs on AMORETUM Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 emerged at the same time, and were recorded and produced in a single rush of creativity. The band decided to release the resulting two hours or so of music in two different parts. So the band’s 6th album is a continuation, a second book, but it also exists as a completely autonomous work. Is Vol. 2 the rebellious older sister of Vol. 1, or the young, untamed brother? Maybe …
AMORETUM Vol. 2 also deals with the tension between fear-hate-rejection-darkness on the one hand, and empathy-love-acceptance-light on the other. “AMORETUM” (a made-up word from “Amor” and “Arboretum”) symbolizes a garden of protection and a germ cell of love.
But in Part 2 a storm first rages in the Garden of Love!
A wild ride over four vinyl sides awaits us. Hard, fast heavy rockers morph into new wave indie sounds and even postpunk loses its “post”. Psychedelic triphop meets dub reggae roots and then ends in a loud rush of psychedelic riffs.
Sounds wild? Mmh ... sounds phat, atmospheric, hypnotic, sometimes raw, sometimes tender. This, with all the joy of experimentation, is held together by a band that never wants to stop; this, with all the movement and all the detours, still always manages to sound like a coherent whole. The common thread is in the sound, groove, melody and atmosphere that permeates everything; it is a thread that leads you through this wild, long journey.

Track Name: Before my eyes
Before my eyes

We’re heading down from the other side, poisonous redeemers
We’re bringing hate from the other side, unbeatable as one
We’re marching on from the other side, unity unbroken
We will declare love-genocide
Trust is obsolete

Stop to terrorize! Laughable! Right before my eyes.
Never idolize! Trivial! Right before my eyes.


Life and loving, as you knew it, over now and out
Time has come, get ruled by vengeance, fury, hate and doubt
YES: we’re coming down from the other side, legion of perdition
And we will rise in homicide
Your end has just begun

Trying to paralyze? Laughable! Right before my eyes.
I'm not mesmerized! Comical! Right before my eyes.
Start to empathize! Humanize!
Right before ... my eyes, my eyes, my eyes, my eyes!
Track Name: LoveLoveLoveLoveLoveLoveLoveLoveLove (Break the pattern of fear)
LoveLoveLoveLoveLoveLoveLoveLoveLove!
(Break the pattern of fear)

Envy - I see a face, I don't like what I see
Jealousy - I read a mind, I don't like what I read
Just because you feel weak doesn't mean you have to
Just because you're afraid doesn't mean you have to
(Fear)

Loveless actions (oh) by mindless people
Cruel rejections by rejected people
Break the pattern of anger and suffering
Break the pattern of fear

Chorus
Fear leads to anger
Fear leads to hate
Hate leads to suffering
Suffering and pain

Fear leads to anger
Anger leads to hate
Hate leads to suffering
Suffering and pain, so:
Love! love! love! love! love! love! love! love! love!

Shine my dear and feel your beating heart
Let it flow: this overwhelming love
When you feel, fear and anger arising, just open your arms,
break the pattern of fear because




...
Fear leads to anger
Fear leads to hate
Hate leads to suffering
Suffering and pain

Fear leads to anger
Anger leads to hate
Hate leads to suffering
Suffering and pain, so:

Love! love! love! love! love! love! love! love! love!
Track Name: Walls away
Walls away

Wailing world of darkness
Silent wall of dread
Voices hoarse from hatred
Fighting fear with hate

Come on, come on, speak to the world
Come on, come embracing the world: affection
Come on, come on, loving the world
Come on, come on, healing the world: protection

Whisper words of wisdom
Whispers in the wind
Singing words of vision
A vision strong and winged

Come on, come on, speak to the world
Come on, come embracing the world: affection
Come on, come on, loving the world
Come on, come on, healing the world: protection
Come on, come on, sing to the world
Come on, come on, cherish the world in passion
Come on, come on, shout to the world
Come on, come on, keeping the world from crashing

Walls away - with Love
Walls away - with Love
Walls away - with Love
Walls away - with Life
Track Name: Slainte (Salud, dinero, amor)
almost instrumental
Track Name: Assimilating love
ASSIMILATING LOVE

Hiding is refused
Intentions may seduce
(There's) no need to defy
to struggle means to loose

I surrender (and) I feel fine
I am you and you will be mine

Don't you turn away from me?
No escape from love
Don't you try to run away
Assimilating love

Assimilating love
is lighting up your heart,
is eating up your fear
is tearing rage apart.

All your luminous nightmares come true
we are one - there's no more "you"

Don't you turn away from me?
No escape from love
Don't you try to run away
Assimilating love
Track Name: In our garden
In our Garden

Up and away are the lovers
Up and away are the knights
Left all alone are the keepers
(Left all alone) Keeping the heart outta sight

Silent and green is the shelter
Calm is the air, safe from harm
It's peaceful but strong, protected lifelong,
We have millions of hours under trillions of stars
In our garden, shelter and home for the weak

Calm the storm – keep us from the fall
Make them feel a love supreme
Eye for an eye – tooth for a tooth – fix their broken souls
In our garden of delight

Feet on the ground, deeply rooting
My fingertips touching the clouds
The birds and the bees buzzing around the trees
While the branches and leaves softly sway in the breeze
We are waiting, waiting and watching the storm

Calm the storm – keep us from the fall
Make them feel a love supreme
Eye for an eye – tooth for a tooth – fix their broken souls
In our garden of delight
Track Name: Leaves of life (Falling down)
LEAVES OF LIFE :: FALLING DOWN

Tearing and dragging at night - leaves of life
Waiting to give up the fight - falling down
Many before (have) been released - leaves of love
(they) turned into life when deceased – falling down

Falling but feeling secure – leaves of life
Our rebirth will follow for sure – falling down
Resurrection back to life – falling down
Changeling while changing the sides – leaves of love


Like a leaf that's floating downward - falling down
Gently moving down to earth – falling down
Seeds of hope deliver new life – falling down
Giving birth on fields of joy – falling down

Reaching the edge of belief – falling down
(A) mission with hope brings relief - falling down
Glowing and breeding new life – leaves of love
A tearing and dragging at night – leaves of life
Track Name: Body move
BODY MOVE

Gently drifting over fields
Unleashed affection – so much to give
oh everybody, realize:
just here, right there – and now with you!

even though it might take all of me
and even though it could be my destruction
I am driven by infernal joy
I’ll shoot’n jump and I’ll complete my mission

down to the floor – body move, body move
down to the floor – chemical restless groove
down to the floor – bang your head, body move
down to the floor – better now, still improved
Track Name: Take me to the stars
TAKE ME TO THE STARS

"Love can win":
A promise I believed today
I begin
To follow and to leave the way
Mission found
I follow now, don't turn around

Take me to the sky
Letting go
(Where) Sun and moon unite
See me glow
Take me to the moon
(Take me) to the sun
Take me to the stars

(I) understand
Finding, loving, leaving home
Torch in hand
(A) spreading, rooting love rhizome


Take me to the sky
Letting go
(Where) Sun and moon unite
See me glow
Take me to the moon
(Take me) to the sun
Take me to the stars
Track Name: Ch Ch Ch Ch pt.I (The ugly corruptor)
almost instrumental
Track Name: Ch Ch Ch Ch pt.II (Living in my dream)
CH CH CH CH pt. II (live inside my dreams)

I'm on the right side
Waiting for the enemy
Who's on the wrong side, waiting
Threatening my holy dream

Ch Ch Ch Chase
The ugly corrupter
Ch Ch Ch Cheer
The holy defence
Ch Ch Ch Chain
The ugly aggressor, the ugly invader,
the almighty threat (black)

Live inside my, live inside my, live inside my dream

Leave me to my dream
I can smell seduction
Don't want to hear what you say,
Nor understand who you are
You bring destruction

Ch Ch Ch Chase
The ugly corrupter
Ch Ch Ch Cheer
The holy defence
Ch Ch Ch Choke
Ch Ch Ch Choke
Ch Ch Ch Ch Ch Ch Ch Ch Ch Ch Ch Ch Choke on this!

Live inside my, live inside my, live inside my dream
Track Name: Chain reaction
Chain reaction

in this world of hate and envy
in this world of hate and lies

in this world I did survive to heal and rescue lives
and to spread my loving wings

chain reaction
chain reaction

In my soul – the plain forgiveness
in my eyes – a tender tear
In my heart – the warm affection
Infecting, detecting those chains of fear

chain reaction
chain reaction

Living my love after loving my life now I follow the chains of fate
Loving my life after living my love, I'll be breaking the chains of pain

Unchain the ones who enjoyed my love
Unchain the ones who survived
Unchain the ones who took all of me
Unchain the ones who arrived
Track Name: No way
no way


No way around!
No hate on peaceful ground!
No way inside,
remember the ones who tried.

I command
invasion by hate:
ravening locusts
eat all bloom!
Last call: control!
Don't leave nothing – driven and fatal
No way around!

No hate on peaceful ground!
No way inside,
remember the ones who tried.
No way around!
No foot on our holy ground!
No way inside,
remember the ones who died

I command
invasion by envy:
words spread out like cancer!
Shields held by delight
words kept in mind:
now forsaken.

No way around!
No hate on peaceful ground!
No way inside,
remember the ones who died.
No way around!
No foot on our holy ground!
No way inside,
remember the ones who died.
Track Name: The wait is never over
the wait is never over

Shimmering rays of light
Morning on the clearing
The trees are still in sight
Hazy is the future

Now again and then
Memories of the lovers
The keeper's task remains
The wait is never over (never over and again)

Endless are the days
Forgotten all beginnings
Holding on for years
Love is all that matters (all that matters in the end)

Tell me that it's over, tell me that it's over, over and again
The wait is never over, never ever over, over and again

The last one of his kind
The world's weight on his shoulders
ages more to come
The world weighs on his shoulders, gnarly shoulders in the woods....
Wait
Wait forever
The wait is never over and again
No
Not forever
There's a promise
They return someday again
....

The wait is never over (and again)
