about

The Greenkeeper

Born in a city living off steel in a time when oil was scarce.
Moving to the east when the world was looking westwards.
Finding a voice in a place that wasn't listening.
Hidden in mediocrity of undeveloped sound.
Lost and forgotten.

And turned up again.
Rediscovering the spark.
Electrifying old memories.
Capturing moments of the past.
Sharing.

Simplistic in style and sound. To-the-point and raw.

Track Name: Alive
So you know that I can't agree with
this spell you put on me with
your magic eyes that cut right through
like this is all they're 'sposed to do

And I know that it's not too late for me to
find in me the hate I need to be two
steps ahead of where you were
when I was hopelessly lost in you

I guess that I'm alive
for I still breathe
It's hard to realize
you have to leave

You have to leave

It is time for me to understand why you
do go on to be misunderstood by who
ever you don't want to get too close to you
and the life you chose

Before I go and turn my eyes away from you
and your world of lies I know just what to do
to clear my head and have the thought of you removed
because that's how it goes

I guess that I'm alive
for I still breathe
It's hard to realize
you have to leave

I guess that I'm alive
for I still breathe
It's hard to realize
you have to leave

And it looks like we've been wrong
Nothing lasts this long
It's less sad than it's true
I've had enough of you

I guess that I'm alive
for I still breathe
It's hard to realize
you have to leave
Track Name: Can't Say
everytime i walk away
everytime you make me stay
everything you throw at me
never gonna go my way
everytime you fade away
nothing left to say to me
its not that i dont care
but ive seen it all before
and i cant take it anymore

dont ask me where i want to go
i'll tell you what you need to know
if you insist on letting go
there's nothing left for me to do
no empty words for me to say
to change your mind and make you stay
im still not sure i know
although ive seen it all before
but i cant take it anymore

i can't say youre with me
i can't say youre not
i can't say youre with me
i can't say fuck you too
i hate you too
you know i do

i'll say the sky is blue and i dont even need to look up
the way the sun shines through and how the clouds are just giving up
but when the rain comes down i find it hard to keep myself up
and i dont know
i just cannot tell
and just like that
here we go again
Track Name: Taste
nobody's lying around
the air is calm there is no sound
the clouds are still on the ground
today

and i feel like i am in place
don't know if i ever felt better these days
and still there's this thing i distaste
today

and if i scream that tastes like shit would you know what i mean

it's funny how i still feel fine
got used to ignoring that pain in my spine
the only thing working is time
but not for me

and i guess it's not really sane
living this life and not quit to complain
and if i need someone to blame
it's me

and if i scream that tastes like shit would you know what i mean

no matter what youre saying
you dont know if im just playing

don't leave to where you going
'cos you dont know if i dont know it
but if you're not too busy
just admit that you will miss me
and i will feast upon the stars to forget what i feel

and if i scream that tastes like shit would you know what i mean
Track Name: Nothing To Do
empty trashcans lining the alley
vagabond living is taking its toll
beautiful homes all over this valley
gracefully mowed lawns void any soul

i stand here alone and
i dont know what i want
all on my own
with nobody around
my hand on my bones
and my feet on the ground
for too long

supersonic boys crowd corners on sideways
telephone poles point up to the sky
no space for expansion and no end for the light waves
invisible watchmen are keeping the time

i stand here alone and
i dont know what i want
all on my own
with nobody around
my hand on my bones
and my feet on the ground
for too long

it's all lazy in the afternoon
going crazy with nothing to do

filthy backpacks cross without warning
underused pigs dig holes in the dirt
exceptional hands built the home you were born in
and nobody cares if you were the first

i stand here alone and
i dont know what i want
all on my own
with nobody around
my hand on my bones
and my feet on the ground
for too long

it's all lazy in the afternoon
going crazy with nothing to do
it's all lazy in the afternoon
going crazy with nothing to do
Track Name: New Day
it's a new day
the sun is real
i can't feel
and i've got nothing to say

i think it's time you let me in on why we're here
i think it's time you let me in on why i should care

i know that's not what you were looking for
only time knows how you can make it more beautiful
it's a high low but not what you were looking for
and i might go and follow you whererver you go

whereever you go
wherever you go
wherever you

so what do you say
how do you feel
this can't be real
there must be another way

by now i'm sure i can't let go so i'll stay clear
and i don't care that you don't know why i'm not here

i know that's not what you were looking for
only time knows how you can make it more beautiful
it's a high low but not what you were looking for
and i might go and follow you whererver you go
Track Name: In This Place
spookin bastards
exit hell
pressin gently
crackin my shell

emotion override
hard to believe
that i'm in this alone
with no sign of relief

so i say to you
in this place
i would like to
stay safe
like you would like to

sober times
never go by
what's more to say
love to get high

smooth life by
don't have to care
i'm in myself
which is anywhere

so really nothing new
in this place
i would like to
stay safe
like you would like to

give me more time
i know i got to keep going
so i can find my way
she says she knew i was growing
out of these forgotten days

in this place
i would like to
stay safe
like you would like to
Track Name: Mean To You
i take it back
don't break my neck
everybody step back a step
have no regrets
pay off your debts
and stop to see the sun that sets
i play it back
on my tape deck
let all the people check my wreck
and if i say let's
take it step by step
i'll end up dead or back in bed
i'll end up dead or back in bed
i'll end up back in bed

so let's get it back
on the right track
got nobody to wet my flap
don't change the bet
let me get set
too many cats i haven't met
i don't regret
not looking back
what better way to cut the crap
respect my slack
don't call me back
no chance in hell im falling back
no chance in hell im falling back
about to tell i'm gonna crack

i say i want to
you say you want to
oh why won't you
hold my fuckin hand


now that i know what i mean to you
it goes to show you never had any clue
now that i know what i mean to you
it's not my fault you won't remember to go
Track Name: The Horniest Tiger
i say what i want 'cause i'm the horniest tiger of 'em all

i saw what you did well then you shouldn't hesitate to quit
yeah i quit for what i quit you may well guess what else i did
so no more monkey biz or else you can suck on this

i say what i want 'cause i'm the horniest tiger of 'em all

i fake what i know so he broke downstair through the floor
i do what i do so don't tell me why you had to
leave for another room i had to talk you through your doom
i say what i want 'cause i'm the horniest tiger of 'em all

anything goes
anything goes until you break your bones
anything goes your way is close until you break your bones

i call what i know so noone called for a strip tease show
i do as i please and to get that far i'll go down on knees
i pray what i do but to tell the truth i lied to you

i say what i want 'cause i'm the horniest tiger of 'em all
Track Name: Feel It
All the places you wanna go
all the faces you wanna know
you think they're here
but I tell you they're gone

All the times you never had
all the shit piled on your bed
never feel sorry
for what you've never done

In my arms' where you should be safe
don't need noone on my grave
whatever you say to be there

All the signs you made me see
without them we couldn't be
don't you think it's time to let it show

Can you feel it, can ya?
It's not too hard to understand
Can you feel it, can ya?

Noone's gonna fade you out
noone's here to shout out loud
what else do you need to expect

Don't let noone get you down
this time you leave to be around
on the second you turn away

And in phases of my life
in an oasis I might dive
hey hey it's nice to be alive

In conclusion of my mind
some of these insights might make blind
but don't worry have no fear

Can you feel it, can ya?
It's not too hard to understand

I'm telling you it's a feeling you can't deny
and you know that I might try
although you know that I can't lie
but if I tell you to come by
I know you will

Can you feel it?
Do you understand?
Track Name: She Calls
sun clouds rain all fade away
as the day keeps turning on
turned on down to feel the heat in here
when the heat comes from the phone

she calls your ass again

another night that has been hanging on
another day thats all the same
you try to break but she don*t care at all
'cause she's the one who chose the game

the dawn grows old and the sun kicks in again
you soap your mouth and clean your ears
the things you've heard that she's been tellin' you
explains the lack of sleep for years

and if you think thats not quite worth your time
you better quit to stay on track
just be sure to change your number too
for to get your peace right back
Track Name: You Say
You don't need to
try and explain yourself
It won't suit you
to take the blame for someone else

They caught me coming round the bend and I know
they'll catch me when I have to fall on my own
Everything's going quite as it should and though
I never meant for you to go back alone
I'm glad that you're gone
Now that you're gone

I don't care what you say
I will miss you anyway

So here we are now
Don't fly away to somewhere else yeah
We've come so far now
There might not be a better place

well they taught me growing up then went on their own
when i know they'll be around wherever I go
Every time we tried as well as we could and though
I realize that you might want to hold on
I'm glad that it's done
Now that it's done

I don't care what you say
I will miss you anyway
Track Name: My Life
hey may i stand next to you
my head is spinning and i don't know where i am
well i'm here to turn my back on you
i know i left but now i seem to be here again

it's easy to forget
yeah it's easy to let go
it's easy to fake feelings
when you never let them show

you had a lot of time and
you could have made up your mind
i said it once before and
i'll say it one more time


its my life
why do you hate it
if you like it
why are you tryin' to shape it
go away
i'm gonna keep it
don't sow hope
if you're not gonna reap it
don't tell me me that you understand it
it's not me
who can comprehend it
you can't go
and change it or take it
this one's mine
i'm not gonna break it
