Silverfishing Surfing Sounds

What’s a band without original songs? A cover band, right.
Well, we tried that, but in the end we wrote almost all or our songs ourselves. Here’s some proof:

Diminished Brain

You think you are a clever guy whom no one can defeat
so if you want to reach a goal the best way is to cheat
The words you say make little sense, you guess that no one knows
but if somebody dares to tell you punch him in the nose
HIT IT

Your mama is so proud of you but she don’t understand
besides the lies your telling her you are a little man
your daddy thinks you’ve got it made cause you bought him a car
for money is the only thing that satisfies by far

You’re glad you have an employee and treat him like a slave
but if you pass away some day, he’ll spit upon your grave

Your son has got an interest but he would never tell
for if you would find out one day he’d surely go to hell
your daughter she’s so very cute but wears a silly coat
and just right after dinner sticks a finger up her throat

You’re glad you have a family and treat them as your slave
but if you pass away some day, they’ll spit upon your grave

Your wife she is so beautiful, you met her just last Summer
and every day you leave the house she’s calling for the plumber

You’re glad you have a family and treat them as your slave
but if you pass away some day, they’ll spit upon your grave

Ride For The Summer

Text

I stood at the corner of the coffee shop bar
carrying the weight of my life
too tired to contemplate emptied of love and hate
only desire cuts like a knife
but while I stared at the floor
she openend up the door to the bar, to my love, to my life

She said I‘ll give you a ride a ride for the summer
she said I‘ll keep you alive, we‘re gonna touch the sky

well here she came from a far
shining like a star to lighten up the darkness inside
at first I didn‘t know but from deep below
I could feel the fire start to glow
as you can see obviously I am burning I‘m yearning,
I wanna keep this feeling here for real

She said I‘ll give you a ride, a ride for the summer
she said I‘ll keep you alive, on through the summer
we‘re gonna touch the sky

now passion is my fashion adrenaline flashin’
the button‘s pushed to overdrive
wind in my hair summer in the air
come tomorrow tell me why should I even care

She said I‘ll love you tonight and on through the summer
she said I‘ll give you a ride, a ride for the summer
and it‘ll be ok my woman makes me a man
but now I understand
I never thought I can spread my wings and fly
but she said I’ll give you a ride
a ride for the summer

Firestarter

70 years since the bombing stopped
25 years since the Berlin wall dropped
Europe a safe haven now with food and jobs
but people only notice when a supermodel flops
Right-wing populists and demagogues
fueled by fear they love to spread the hoax
they give a fuck about society or human rights
you think they’re fighting for you
wait until you feel their bites

Man wasn’t built for paradise
’cause if it’s peaceful it’s too nice
to feed the greed and to get a slice
peace is the first to sacrifice
apathetic on the couch you want it harder
now your call is heard from the firestarter

Filter bubbles are the new comfort zones
your world in your hands but locked inside your phone
protected from the truth you build your own reality
then easily deny it when it doesn’t seem to be
the one you’d like to hear that would fit your hate
you were meant to be superior still you have to wait
put your faith in a pussy-grabbing narcissist
who’s denying that a climate change does exist

Man wasn’t built for paradise
if there’s a snake they dig it’s lies
to feed the greed and to get a slice
peace is the first to sacrifice
apathetic on the couch you want it harder
now your call is heard from the firestarter

Our lands have become the perfect breeding ground
for anger and frustration rising homeward-bound
now the sheep cries for the wolf expecting salvation
assuming it’s a clever move looking for compensation

Man wasn’t built for paradise
’cause if it’s peaceful it’s too nice
to feed the greed and to get a slice
peace is the first to sacrifice
apathetic on the couch you want it harder
now your call is heard from the firestarter

Anyway

She don’t like
She don’t like me
She don’t call
She don’t call
She don’t mind
She don’t mind me
She don’t wanna know at all

Ahhhh
Ahhhh

She could be
She could be my
she could be my superstar
I ran into her lately
she ran away so far

Ahhhh
Ahhhh

She don’t know
She don’t know me
She don’t see what I see
She won’t feel
She won’t feel me
Guess she don’t feel the need

SOLO

And now she misses my sweetest kisses
my tender touch would be too much for her
anyway

Ahhhh
Ahhhh
Ahhhh
Ahhhh
