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other side, unbeatable as one We’re marching on from the other side, unity unbroken We will declare love-genocide Trust is obsolete Stop to terrorize!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!

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!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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)

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.
