Stay Golden 02:46
Always just at arms length - always just out of reach like a bad joke or a lesson - they try to teach It’s a cruel game, when no one tells you the rules stay golden pony boy - you have all the tools stay golden, you can’t repair what’s broken - - - x2 every day you stand in line - for a little piece of luck but it never comes around - cause no one gives a fuck it’s a cruel game - when they know what’s in your your cards stay golden pony boy - just hold on a few more yards *** seems like first come first served seems like this machine is broken for repairs stay golden, you can’t repair what’s broken - - - x3 SOLO seems like first come first served seems like this machine is broken for ever

where is my jet pack - I’ve been promised and I used pay pal the future’s a start up - following the great dismal all hail the bot net - the Trump tower is still too tall star wars comes in a boxed set - but my drones are way to small to carry the weight of the future and the promised land and all of the hate on my news feed relax with a yoga head stand : | | we are plugged into jacks - for the next mosh pit bar brawl download-able from the net - standby for an agent recall releasing a new track - still not playing in the hall buy better equipment - buy it at the mall

you take off lighter than light falling head over feet into a colorblind sky loosing your shoes on the way don’t crush into a murder of crows head wet in the clouds you see sky is just deconstructed ground we don’t believe in gravity it’s such an outdated concept nothing that is left for me here we don’t believe in gravity, it’s such an outdated concept nothing to your left nothing to your right falling away from here no reason to ever come down no reason except it’s a little cold up and away rushing on thermic waves you see sky is just deconstructed ground

The final man stands on a hill starring down befuddled What the hell is going on here? The world has turned the wrong way and dislocated from itself in a cluster-fuck decline. _You feel lightheaded and sick water rising feet got wet _when mountains melted into the sea The earth a crispy toasted crumb we’re losing pressure fast the future sinking under a vast horizon- And all the wise are going crazy Who put the idiots in charge? Hedonism on the rocks, baby smiling zombies on the march. Aliens on Mars A drop of fuck it diluting a sea of fuck it all _ I’ve seen it on the news. This was a total fail why even bother let someone else clean up the mess. a rocket waiting to launch the cowards way out it can only get worse from here. REF And all the wise are going crazy Who put the idiots in charge? Hedonism on the rocks, baby we’ll be aliens on Mars.

Bad Habits 03:42
a pack a day up in smoke i bite my nails to the skin dies irae on silver platter while your patience wear thin. sleeping too little or too much wouldn’t hurt to drink less binge watching redundant crap panic feeds of laziness I’ll ask a question and space out while you talk I get annoyed so fast, I leave you there and walk. Collecting habits, is an old obsession of mine. I could try to go cold turkey, but who’s got the time. Bad Habits i feed bad habits like they’re my best friends we go hand in hand, hand in hand i feed bad habits like they don’t count my vices follow me around and every time I promise tomorrow I will change you get your hopes up, I’m so sorry tomorrow will be the same and every time I promise tomorrow I will change you tell me it’s OK, you tell me please stay strange!

Clubhouse 03:47

Candy flavored jellyfish flying through my dreams sleep is a beautiful thing or so it seems A blue screen turns into a million birds fresh gusts of wind sounds like your voice dreams are a magical thing and are my weapon of choice escape to imagination land no taxes, no chores escape to my own mind no frustration ‘n bores ‘Cause in my head I’m dancing moving to my own sound Spinning fast and flying high and never touching the hard hard ground Imagination Land 99bpm, Capo in 1 What to do to stay here simply closed the door through the clock out of the window from the thirteenth floor Staying forever between my sheets sun comes up, sun goes down eyes are closed, R E M sweet silence, no sound

about

Blackflies Berlin, Germany

A Blackflies album would fit between Foo Fighters and Fiona Apple. Or next to Sleater Kinney? Stone Temple Pilots? ...This is hard. Anyway:
Georg the guitar writes the music and has a big pedalboard he puts to good use. He's in a telepathic beat connection with his brother Jakob, the drums. Tobi hides extravagant T-shirt choices behind a bass. cy writes lyrics...and sings them.
est. 2013 Berlin
