about

The term "朦朧詩" translated into english, means something like "Misty Poetry", which i think fits the style of my lyrics quite well. Especially this EP, features a lot of misty and obscure poetry, about nature, winter and of course, topics like love, etc.

This is the first time i used traditional chinese instruments on one of my official records and as you can hear, there is a chinese theme going on in almost every song, sometimes subtly, sometimes quite obvious. In the two songs "Beneath The Ice" and "A Flower's Blade", you can hear the 二胡 (Erhu) and 古箏 (Guzheng), two really beautiful chinese instruments, which i bought in Taiwan last year and still love to play.
The song "Beneath The Ice" also features my first chinese-written poem, which you can hear in the outro of that song.

"Too High To Know" was actually recorded and published in june 2015, but never officially released as part of any EP. And as i somehow really liked it, i didn't wanna waste it and decided to make a remix of it, to put it on this EP, due to the similar sound of the other songs on there.

"You Suit Me", the last song of the EP, ends in a messy wall of sound, creating the perfect finish, for a hopefully satisfying EP.

Thanks to everyone for supporting my music.

Track Name: In A Loss Of Soul
Whenever we are out on the open road
Far out, blurred and with eyes like owls
Seems like our maps got lost and thus lost control
Reversed the mind just to gain more soul

As i started to pretend nothing happened there
She waited for the moment to be everywhere
Wherever i will go, whatever i will see
Whenever i will feel, she's a part of me

Whatever you will say for a single ear
Words may break while we persevere
I have listened, heard no voice, well it must be clear
Sound is made just to disappear

As she started to extend our atmosphere
I had to leave our space for a single year
Wherever i will fall, whatever i will be
Whenever i will know, she's a part of me

Make me feel what you mean
Cause to feel is all
All we need in a loss of soul
Make me feel what you mean
Cause to feel is all
All we need in a loss of soul

What you say, what you mean
Quite a different scheme
What you know, what you saw
What you wish, what you dream
What you say, what you mean
Quite a different scheme
What you know, what you saw
What you wish, what you dream

Make me feel what you mean
Cause to feel is all
All we need in a loss of soul
Make me feel what you mean
Cause to feel is all
All we need in a loss of soul
Track Name: Beneath The Ice
I'm reaching out for you
Unless you don't want to
I guess you wanna know
I guess you wanna know
Why distance is no measure
For my love to you
Maybe you'll never know
Maybe you'll never know

With every step the snow it sounds and blinds my eyes
The frozen lake beneath my feet mirrors my mind
And even though the ice is thin i still feel fine
Because if ever it will break i know you'll find
Me beneath the ice

I'm reaching out for you
Unless you don't want to
I guess you wanna know
I guess you wanna know
Why distance is no measure
For my love to you
Maybe you'll never know
Maybe you'll never know

With every progress, every step makes me feel tired
The light of day fading away until the night
Up from the skies there shines a neverending light
And so the moon revealed what i was trying to find
There beneath the ice

Sleeping within the snow
Life goes on as we all know
A frozen and a careless soul
Never minds, what goes to show
Sleeping within the snow
Life goes on as we all know
A frozen and a careless soul
Never minds, what goes to show

好漂亮的美女
我想你但你想離開我
因為你不喜歡
我跟你太不一樣
Track Name: Too High To Know
Good morning sun, i see you hit the road
Lead me out of my walls, refresh my hope
There's too less soul and too much empty view
Please incarnate me into something new

The sky's too high to know
And we are stuck below
Even if there is an answer
Still it is too hard to let it go

Do you mind to drive me up the hills
I wanna see the world which pays my bills
A disappearing skyline sets my mood
I am here please tell me, where are you?

The sky's too high to know
And we are stuck below
Even if there is an answer
Still it is too hard to let it go

Good morning sun
I hope you hit the road

Good evening sun,you know i missed your call
Too blind to see the loose bricks in the wall
Did a memory hit my sleepy mind
Or was it you who kept me up all night

The sky's too high to know
And we are stuck below
Even if there is an answer
Don't let it roll too far
Don't let it roll too far
Track Name: A Flower's Blade
When the breeze comes up the mountain range
And the forests long to rearrange
The air, our thoughts, all that's insane
Up there, we're one with the terrain
Where the trees lost all their feathered crowns
And the rocks in decades made no sound
The place i fear, a place untamed
A beauty which cannot be named

The missing love, the loss sustains
Inside a life, no one explains
Eternal as no love remains
Your love, forever, floods my veins
The missing love, the loss sustains
Inside a life, no one explains
Eternal as no love remains
Your love, forever, floods my veins

When the clouds too heavy, coming down
Enshrouding us without a sound
I will close my eyes and dream away
The darkness i don't want to stay
Where the grass gets thin, covered by snow
And a flower's blade will never grow
That's the place i long for and i'll go
If there's no love i'll ever owe

The missing love, the loss sustains
Inside a life, no one explains
Eternal as no love remains
Your love, forever, floods my veins
The missing love, the loss sustains
Inside a life, no one explains
Eternal as no love remains
Your love, forever, floods my veins

Eternal as no love will change
Forever we won't be the same
Everlasting as the astral plains
The soil i'm walking on remains
Track Name: You Suit Me
Did you think it was destiny
Do you believe it was magic science
Something i still cannot believe
A weird dream sold as endless romance
Will you take part in the remedy
Or did you choose to escape in silence
A long forgotten chemistry
A life still capable of dying

You have a special ability
Nobody tells you but you keep tryin
To write a beautiful symphony
For every heartbreak you keep on sighing
Nobody gives you a guarantee
Cause life's about seeking not hiding
I won't blame on reality
When dreams and wishes keep on colliding

I'm not sure if i should say
What i'm saying anyway
Can't resist the sweetest mind
You suit me like no other kind
I'm not sure if i can do
Anything to get to you

I'm not sure if i should say
What i'm saying anyway
Can't resist the sweetest mind
You suit me like no other kind
I'm not sure if i should say
What i'm saying anyway
Can't resist the sweetest mind
You suit me like no other kind
