Take Me Home 03:54
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

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

Face The Day 03:45
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

Secret 03:30
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
5.
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
6.
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

Sun To Grey 04:12
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

Too Dark 04:24
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

Worn Legs 02:17
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
10.
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
11.
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

Watch 03:36
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

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
