about

This was originally supposed to be a filler between two albums but instead became one of the most important releases so far. It's totally stripped down to mostly acoustic guitar and vocals with some guests on various instruments.

Back then, in late 2004, I had already made plans for "The Tiny Bits And Pieces" to be more rock oriented, but I didn't want the quiet songs to suffer from that, so I put them all togehter and made "Travelling" out of it.

By the way: This album always was and always will be for free download. PLUS: It comes with a digital booklet as a bonus item.
But you can pay if you wish, too :-)

about

Ben Martin Sankt Pölten, Austria

I'm here to write, perform and spread music that has its roots in pop with influences from soul, jazz and folk rock. Ever since I discovered the guitar as a means to express my feelings in 1985, I'm constantly refining and clearing the channel through which I receive, digest and send out music. I recorded "The Endless Stream Of Everything" to share my love and songs with you. ... more

Track Name: I Wish You All The Best
I've been knowing
You for so long

Do you remember
the plans we had once

Chorus
I'm proud of what you've done since
of who you are

You got kids and a husband too
and you are happy

You care a lot
and things are turning out great

Chorus
I'm proud of how you've gone through this
of who you are
I wish you all the best
Track Name: I'm Well
You can't rely on someone else
you'd rather go your way
before you'll give in you'd be dead

In the end you come again and tell
me what you're planning now
But I won't listen anymore

It's always like this when we meet
now matter how many years
I'm sorry for you when you cry tears

I know what this is about
and how to go through
Years and years I was without
this feeling I got now

Right now I sit and tell
what I've been fighting for
Damn you I can't complain I'm well
Track Name: I walk on by
I see it all
I walk on by real life for once
Recall it all
I come around disturbing scenes

They beat him up
I can see his blood
running down his neck till he collapsed
Track Name: Travelling (Solo Version)
Days passin' by
On our way home
Feelin' alright with you alone here

We're on a ride
Looking what else is there
Apart from life in inner space now

We're travelling in places
We want to know what else is there
It can't be anything we're in now

People alive
more than expected, did we
why don't we take a little closer look

Everything's old
new is what we are calling out
Why don't we make a little closer step
Track Name: On The Pure Thought
Before the sun rises up
Cold winter rain never stops
My feet are already soaked

Walking across where today
I left my feelings as they'd
surrender all that you said

I walk back into my place
Dry up my feelings as they'd
gone mad just on the pure thought

Later that night I would crawl
into the couch we would fall
whenever this one gets true

In my dreams
In my dreams
In my dreams
In my dreams

Before the sun rises up
Warm summer breeze never stops
to gently blow round my feet
