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: Take Me Home
So this is what you are
doing wrong for a living
this business that you're in
leading to be short of giving much love

Why do you hurt yourself
Need no excuse for destroying
don't be somebody else
you are complete all along

Don't get exposed too much
You might want back what you're giving
Respect yourself as much
As you'd rather see yourself living alone

I don't want my children grow up like this
Holding my hands over a bully like this
Feeling regret for broken dreams like this
Turning away from images like this

Take me home to my own sanity
Take me home show some humanity
Track Name: Leave Me Alone
Oh boy you're goddamn right you never get to sleep alone
just close your eyes and hear the voices talking on and on

You wake up late at night there's people in the street you hear
them almost start a fight there's no way to espace that fear

Hear him crying
feel him bleed
hear them running
feel the agony

Oh god just let me sleep again
Those voices
Leave me alone again

The other night my doorbell rang I didn't dare to wake
Some ugly demons made feel this agony again

There's people laughing in the street they wouldn't let me go
another fight this time no sound will pass my ears oh no

Can't hear him crying
can't feel him bleed
don't hear them running
but feel the agony

Oh god just let me sleep again
Those voices
Leave me alone again
Track Name: Face The Day
I’m waking up too early
The birds are screaming in my ear
No way to fall asleep again
To face the day seems like the end

It’s been too many years
Since saying „yes“ became a friend

Just one more time I hit the road
Say to myself „well, it’s okay somehow“

My dreams are gone
too far away
Wait till it’s done
I hope I won’t stay long

When I go back to rest
There is no hope for sleep at all
A glass or ten are well in vain
Some hours late I’ll sure drift off - sometimes

My dreams are gone
too far away
Wait till it’s done
I hope I won’t stay long

I feel nothing at all
Track Name: Secret
I just don’t like what I see round here
Take one step back and let me sort it out
Come take your arm round my neck right now
I’d like to kiss you and take you places

I’m the secret in your dreams
You know me
Don’t dare to spit me out

Sometimes you might recall why I’m here
You wonder where all the pain comes from
Don’t worry I’m gonna stay right here
You’ll never ever get rid of me, cause

Sorry you got cancer now
You blame me
You didn’t sort things out

Won’t you ever talk bout me
I warn you
I’m gone when you spit me out
Track Name: The Real Deal
I wanna see what's the real deal
I wanna see what's your real feel
I wanna see what you're playing
I wanna see who's to blame here

Describe what life is all about
When you're all done
Describe what life is all about
When they're right here

Don't wanna hear it's all for us
While you don't care
Don't wanna see you smile at us
While you're a lie

I wanna see what's the real deal
I wanna see what's your real feel
I wanna see what you're playing
I wanna see who's to blame here
Track Name: Who Do You Think You Are Talking To
It's okay
I'm not the one who's in charge
I won't stay
this time I'll move out for sure
Right today
You won't see me anymore
Yes I'll pay
You can trust me, you know?

It's alright
I'll put it right back you can
trust me tonight
just leave me alone until
I decide
If I'll take it today or tomorrow

Hey come on
Don't let me down this time
I'll be gone
In two years or three anyway
I'm so lone
Just one more time for a friend
Hey come on

God, not this time
Leave me alone, you know
I'll be fine
Don't ever touch this cause
It's all mine
I need it today and tomorrow

Who do you think you’re talking to

Hey get up
Hope I didn't hurt you too much
You just dropped
I warned you but hey you just
wouldn't stop
Okay, I lost my temper
I came out on top
You'd better stay down there
Track Name: Sun To Grey
And it's all the same old lie again
with all new colours, an all new frame
It's still the same old lie again
All over again

And against all better knowledge
I get up again, come back again
And against all better knowledge
I start talking again

And I'm living through all tears again
through all those years of defense again
And I'm living through your tears again
All over again

And I paper over the cracks again
I talk until they're good again
Still I paper over the cracks again
All over again

Better days lie ahead
Sun to grey stay in bed
Of me

And it feels just like it's a dead end road
A dead end road it's a dead end road
It feels just like it's a dead end road
A dead end road

From sun to grey it's a heavy load
A heavy load it's a heavy load
From sun to grey it's a heavy load
A heavy load
Track Name: Too Dark
White chairs surrounding
A carpet in red
I’m tired of laughing
We're all in bed

Misery is present
Making its way
Into our dreams
Where it will stay

And it's too dark
And it's too dark
No there is nothing ahead
Right now

She's weeping without
A reason inside
No color in live
No meaning around

No light at the end
No tunnel is near
Nothing around
Not even fear

And it's too dark
And it's too dark
No there is nothing ahead
Right now

Hit me and i won't complain
Kill me and it will remain
Track Name: Worn Legs
Hours too late no train behind me
Nobody there but my worn legs
The last sink I’ve seen starts to fade now
A raven sits down on my hat

I feel there’s someone in the distance
I’m sure he’s after me somehow
„No Sir I didn’t go to highschool,
right over there I made my way“

Buzzing rain drops down my nose
Track Name: Sunday Mourning
Every time I come around there
And I should be feeling fine
I know I don’t belong around there
I just can’t make it a good time

It’s just sunday mourning
I’m gonna change my life until tomorrow
I’ll be renewed

Every time the phone is ringing
And it’s not the usual time
I’m real afraid to pick it up
Somebody could have died

But not this time

It’s just sunday mourning
I’m gonna change my life until tomorrow
I’ll be renewed

There are days when I hit the road
I feel as if I’m gonna crash
Even tough it never happens
I’m still afraid to press his flesh

But not this time
Track Name: When I Walk I See Smiles
Imagine life 200 years ago
Can’t see any difference at all
There’s one to tell us all what’s good and bad
And what to believe in

Imagine what you wear is what you sow
Can’t see why to throw it away
Noone to tell us all what’s good and bad and what to believe
Noone to show us all what food is bad and what to believe

When I walk I see smiles
I see love I see mothers and fathers with children and I ask myself
Where in the world do they find happiness
When there’s terror all over the place
guess they don’t give a damn

Imagine what you hear is what you know
Can’t see any difference at all
No matter how big the load of crap you have to believe it
No other point of view is possible can’t help but believe it

When I walk I see smiles
I see pain I see brothers and sisters surviving a cold winter night
Out in the streets where the people won’t give anything
But a nauseating look

When I walk I see smiles
I see love I see hate I see husbands and wives living a TV soap
I ask myself where they find all the energy
to overcome all their agony

When I walk I see smiles
I see children believing in something that takes all their hard times away
Finding another poor sinner
Asking for sugar or something alike

When I walk I see smiles
I see mothers and fathers with children and I ask myself
Where in the world do they find happiness
When there’s terror all over the place
I guess they just don’t give a damn
Track Name: Watch
Come watch the sunrise with me
some tidal waves wash the shore
And I walk you right home
Where you and I belong

So much impressions behind
Those lives feel peaceful at times
And we come and disturb
But learn another pace
