about

OPERATORS Berlin, Germany

"It is a rollercoaster, complete with ups and downs, climbs and descents that ultimately combine for a well put together if recognizable sound. [...] One of the five reasons I wish I went to Desertfest Berlin 2012."

Track Name: Rock'n'Rollercoaster
it's a rocknroll, it's a-rockin,
it's a rocknrollercoaster
it's a rocknroll, it's a-rockin,
it's a rocknroll...

check out the lights baby
check out the city
check how we fly
and we never come down
so in the end
try and find somebody
who is goddamn able
to never bring you down, down, down, down, down...

it's a rocknroll, it's a-rockin,
it's a rocknrollercoaster
it's a rocknroll, it's a-rockin,
it's a rocknroll...

let me just recall
to check my altitude level
or you end up like stevie ray
or fuck up in a snowstorm
just like buddy holly
so tap yourself on the back
and let me light the way
baby you tell me
are we never going down? down, down, down, down...

it's a rocknroll, it's a-rockin,
it's a rocknrollercoaster
it's a rocknroll, it's a-rockin,
it's a rocknroll...
Track Name: January Blues
i've been staring
on this red brick wall for far too long
one brick for every thought
to get out of this town
and all the paths i've chosen
are they the right ones?
i'll find out later on
i'll find out later on
i'll find out later on

sunkissflower
your memories i keep
sunkissflower
already in too deep

they are kicking in doors now
that open the other way
they are pulling all strings now
with nothing attached
they're tearing the artwork apart now
shreds fall on moist heather
i never asked for all this, you know
respect is water in the desert
respect is water in the desert
respect is water in the desert

the souls idiotic
breathing all together
one breath at a time
marching all together
one step at a time
and they are leaving
my flesh unharmed
all else is tainted
all else is tainted
all else is tainted

sunkissflower
your memories i keep
sunkissflower
already in too deep

your memories i keep
but i'm already in too deep

Track Name: Pig & Pepper
there, it was me again
in good humorous spirits, yeah
with lacking self-reflection
laughing with myself again, yeah

but you don’t have to
take part in
the way i speak
the way i peak
but now you make me

come down from my throne,
come down from my throne,
down on my knees
come down from my throne,
to pity you

and all these opportunities
written right on your flag
and i won't stand in the way, no
i would never tear down your flag

but you don’t have to take part in
the way i speak
the way i peak
but now you make me

come down from my throne,
come down from my throne,
down on my knees
come down from my throne,
to pity you
come down from my throne,
down on my knees
to pity you
and your distorted grace

girl you make me
come down from my throne
girl you make me
get down on my knees
girl you make me
come down from my throne
girl you make me
pity you, pity you

impress me
impress me
impress me
come on
impress me

girl you make me
come down from my throne
girl you make me
get down on my knees

you never had to take part in
the way i speak
the way i peak
but now you made me

come down from my throne,
down on my knees
Track Name: Danish
left behind
the burnt-out factories
i am one
one with the wolves

left behind
the burnt-out factories
i feel the urge
to bite again

i bite again

left behind
my burnt-out memories
there is not much left of me
there is not much left of me

infuse new blood
into this aching body
damage will be done
when i feel the urge again

because once you're tempted,
you're already lost,
you bite again
because once you're tempted,
you're already lost,
you bite, bite, bite, bite

left behind
i feel the urge
left behind
i bite again

left behind
i am one

i bite again

what the fuck has this to do with denmark anyway?
Track Name: Sketches of Pain
collectively waking up
we all have fake dementia
did we ever dare to mention
the shit has lost its stains

did we ever care to mention
the shit has lost its stains
and some people have their hearts
where others have their brains

so do not, do not break your broken bones
do not, do not break your broken bones
do not

anticipating
anticipating
anticipating the impossible
- now it's oh so easy
to die against each other
when the shit has lost its stains
and some people have their hearts
where others have their brains

the shit has lost its stains
the shit has lost its stains
the shit has lost its stains
the shit has lost its stains
the shit has lost
the shit has lost
the shit has lost
the shit has lost
the shit
the shit
the shit
the shit
amen.
Track Name: Beaches
swimmin' through the desert
i don't give a ship right now

thirsty like i've never been before
delirium setting in big time

a moondog in a catsoup
watches over me
a moondog in a catsoup
watches over you

over the beaches of your mind
over the beaches of your mind
over the beaches of your mind
over the beaches

the arc of time is bending
and dust controls my every thought

and all these grains of sand
they are in command right now

a moondog in a catsoup
watches over me
a moondog in a catsoup
watches over you

watches these drops
become a river
you get washed away

watches this river
become an ocean
you get washed away

watches these waves
they peak inside of me
you get washed away

you get washed away

over the beaches of your mind
over the beaches of your mind
over the beaches of your mind
over and over
over and over
over the beaches of your mind
Track Name: Dropout
i pictured myself once again,
printed on a milkbox
yesterday is long gone,
the day that i got lost

dropout

i followed 'em tracks once again
to the very beginning
they showed up in a circle
ain't no losin' or winnin'
no virtue, no sinnin'
no end and no beginnin'

dropout
Track Name: Evilla
the torture of hearing
the hammer resound
against the thick trees
beyond her shoulder
madelon went to bring
a lapful of toys
making sure it was fast,
she spend them all
and while she talked
about consumption
her houses is made
made out of gold
made out of gold
made out of gold

sacred violence
wrapping up their hearts
in a second,
in a truthful moment
jonah and the boys
they all came out to play
they talk decadence,
crippled attention span
and so they flee
from a waterfall of meaning
yet their houses are
made out of gold
made out of gold
made out of gold

gun powder
and buckets of blood
give us a warm feeling
right down our golden guts
so why would you ever wonder
about this illusion of danger?
an allusion to former times
when we fucked up like you do
now

baby tell me...
why don't you tell me,
baby tell me
i need to know
baby, tell me
i need to know
baby, tell me
what's on your mind
baby, tell me
i need to know
just one thing that's what i need to know
baby, tell me
i need to know
just one thing
tell me

who's gonna buy you a diamond ring
when your house is made out of gold?
with a head so full of shit baby,
you simply do, do as you're told!
do as you're told!
