    (English, read below)
    Die ersten 60 gepressten Platten unseres neuen Albums "The Shame Song". 180g, schweres Vinyl. Handnummeriert (als 1/60, 2/60 usw.), signiert und direkt von uns an euch verschickt.
    Leider sieht es momentan finanziell alles andere als rosig aus, weshalb wir die Platten erst produzieren können, sobald die Produktionskosten wenigstens teilweise drin sind. Sobald wir ein paar LPs vorverkauft haben, geht die Platte in die Produktion. Auf jeden Fall kriegt ihr einen Tag vor Release den digitalen Download des Albums in der höchstmöglichen Qualität, selbst wenn sich die LP um ein oder zwei Monate verzögern könnte.

    These are the first 60 copies of our limited edition vinyl. Heavy weight 180g vinyl. They are numbered (1/60; 2/60 and so on), signed and sent by us.
    The problem is that we only can beginn pressing the record once we have recovered at least part of the production cost as we are in tough spot financially right now.
    The moment the money is in we'll go into production. You will, however, get our album as the highest possible digital file one day before release even if the LP may arrive one day later.

    Includes unlimited streaming of The Shame Song via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

    Die Standard Edition unseres neuen Albums "The Shame Song". 180g, schweres Vinyl.
    Auch streng limitiert, aber nicht handnummeriert und signiert, deshalb ein bisschen günstiger.
    Leider sieht es momentan finanziell alles andere als rosig aus, weshalb wir die Platten erst produzieren können, sobald die Produktionskosten wenigstens teilweise drin sind.

    Standard 12" vinyl version of our newest album "The Shame Song". Heavy weight vinyl with artwork by our very own Julie.
    This, too, is a limited edition but not hand-numbered and signed, thus slightly cheaper than the Strictly limited edition.
    Unfortunately we cannot afford the vinyl production cost right now as we are in a tough spot financially. However, the records will go into production once we can afford it. And: you will receive a high quality download of the album one day before release.

lyrics

I know, sleeping seems like such a waste now that the big picture has fallen from the frame. Berlin is cold and dark these days. I know how hard it is to get up in the morning when it's just so easy to forget that you still exist while nothing else seems to stay and our family trees get an arm cut off every other day.
There is a list of things we said we'd do tomorrow
But tomorrow just slips away like a blow fly in the heat
And there is a black hole above our heads that scares me to death
It swallows everything
It swallows everything

There is music in the streets as we are walking home
And we're almost crushed by the sky hanging too low
Lately, you said, you've felt trapped somewhere in-between the days,
But that's as close as you ever got to finding your own place
And then you fell asleep on the bathroom floor
Until the morning I kept knocking at the door
And you said:"Don't you see the flame raging through my mind?
It swallows everything
It swallows every-fucking-thing

And I'm so afraid that I can't breathe!
Why are all those black holes haunting me?"

But, sister, I know you don't need my sympathy
Cause I think you are the greatest person on earth
And this song won't do you justice- nothing ever did-
I know it's a cliché but I meant to say that I love you
And you can believe me if I told you I never wrote this line before
And I remember how you were scared of all the dreams you might have had
And that you never found a place where you felt safe
And how slowly I was sliding down the telephone wire
Pretending I didn't care that much at all, oh, you know how hard I tried

And I'm getting sentimental about the nights we stayed awake
At Manor Hotel, London, in 2012
When you said:"We are useless but at least we have the music"
We thought it would never end
We thought it would never end

So, my love and my best friend,
We should run as far as we can
Before life can catch up to swallow everything
