Sirens 04:07
SIRENS floating on the sea called by the sounds in your head set the course for a dream breaking through the mist see the island ahead meet the bosom's land the sirens' song's so sweet calls you home to a foreign land the voices' tentacles drag you there feel the raisin' damp oh won't you come here and stay for a while pass the lady garden's doors hear the birds' sounds so alluring tonight it's a leech not to slough off hands in the noose strings pulled tight - no escape ships running ashore instant bliss abulic mind - what a fool flames that won't die down savor every taste nothing's held back - no needs inside aridness is gone - raisin' damp a fatal delight oh won't you come here and stay for a while pass the lady garden's doors hear the birds' sounds so alluring tonight it's a leech not to slough off make me a pig or kill me I am yieldin' to your potion's charm read my needs - I've found my fortunes damsels dancing at the shore the sirens' song's so sweet calls you home to a foreign land the voices' tentacles drag you there feel the raisin' damp oh won't you come here and stay for a while pass the lady garden's doors hear the birds' sounds so alluring tonight it's a leech not to slough off

I can feel you fallin' but your smile is frozen in the lights you told me all your lies your dreams displayed in all your lines if you told me you're not you and you never told the truth would I still be here with you? in the end, what is left? (solo) if I told you I'm not me and I'm not what you can see would you still be here with me? in the end, what is left? if you told me you're not you and you never told the truth would I still be here with you? in the end, what is left?

NIGHT OF LONGER KNIVES strange shapes - the phantom's shadows before us our tales - exaggerated to new heights deceived - we fool ourselves with stupid lies they say you'll feel the shiver down your spine identity's not yet been gleaned, but sciophobic fears confirmed the night of longer knives has come it feels so real - now put yourself in arms our fear's the hand that pulls our strings so we march on into the fight that's long forlorn we give in to stupefaction of our brains and prepare - the bandoleers are filled with lies identity's not yet been gleaned, but sciophobic fears confirmed the night of longer knives has come it feels so real - now put yourself in arms what do we find when we look inside? dark sides that we try to hide we're deceived along the way sent to war against something that is not there so forlorn - like a dream just illusions from within (solo) in the end the creatures that we called are near their embrace comes from inside - it's just our fear and the world sees too much pain that we will fear so farewell - till a new break of dawn my dear lights fail to light the dark side of our minds, our sciophobia the night of longer knives has come it feels so real - now put yourself in arms

about

With his project “Illegal I”, German guitar player, singer and songwriter Andy Kneitinger unties himself from his 70s Rock roots and merges them with more recent influences such as Stoner and contemporary Alternative Rock. From melodic and smooth vocals to powerful shouts, from synth sounds and danceable grooves to catchy hard-rocking guitar riffs and sing-along choruses, his debut record “Illegal Eye” constitutes a compilation of 10 differing songs, which still manage to follow a common leitmotiv. The lyrics are mostly self-reflective and should be taken with a grain of salt. However, Andy Kneitinger doesn’t shy away from addressing more serious topics such as pretended ideals that cause a senseless and seemingly never-ending spiral of violence in the conflicts the world has to face these days.
All in all, “Illegal I” ties together the strings of Rock history and thus speaks to old-school Rock idealists and new-school Rock explorers alike.
