lyrics

I woke up,
nameless, gameless and shattered
I woke up, on a train,
and I couldn't remember

And the first rays,
of a newborn sun,
were waiting for me
Once more no man lost

I woke up
I couldn't quite relate
I woke up
What happened the other day?

The midnight special,
took me far away,
to a home I knew,
I would never stay

In the wagon next doors,
I don't know where she got in,
sitting cross-legged,
with her hands on her knees

She was half asleep,
staring at the carvings of fishes
I think we just shared a dream,
little drifter miss

And holy matters came after the storm,
when the fish were already drowned
A valuable lesson all the fisherman were taught,
as in their God they had doubted

Oh Northern man, you better turn back
The Americas ain't ready yet,
for your muscle with fat

Valuable lessons,
never quite satisfied
And holy matters,
never quite ran in time

I've been sleepwalking in Munich,
daydreaming in Bonn
The skies screamed red,
when the rivers broke at dawn

Rise, Huddie, rise,
for the mountain king
His words will start to make sense,
when the band begins

All the while I've been,
watching from the side,
how the people of my kind have been,
drawn into a fire

Little miss,
now that you've lost your hindsight,
could you come up with a dream,
for the soul of the people of my kind?

about

Slow Bear

On his debut release, Pale Morning Fades, Slow Bear embraces the fuzzy sound of tape recorders and blends this with digital mixing techniques. The home recorded album features at times a DIY take on oldies pop, at other times dark psychedelic folk ballads. The record puts lyrical expression up front, featuring tales of war, abuse, violence and alienation in a magical-realistic universe. ... more
