Spiral Song 04:39
Here you come with your beliefs And connect them with our hearts You shouldn’t be giving away your dreams Even when you think it’s smart You shouldn’t be giving away your dreams You had them from the start Good and bad are related Never get them separated And I continue to scratch out Scratch out It’s a different phrase From the wide into the narrow Trace your unconsious dreams You try to forget and I erase Nothing is what it seems Good and bad are related Never get them separated And I continue to scratch out Scratch out

My Instincts 02:28
He wants her back And she smiles again While she looks into my eyes Don’t make it harder ’Cause you want to be smarter That is just one way In the middle of nowhere Everything seems wrong Get yourself together The will is very strong Did she believe It was a decision to leave Say it isn’t so I follow my instincts Very distinct My instincts She saved her treasures in a shell Fooling her means You are fooling yourself as well A lack of something That he should define Find out if she’s got time Did she believe It was a decision to leave Say it isn’t so

Head 02:41
It’s all in your head Can’t get it out Can’t get it in A part of you is wanting to win My head Your head Are constantly in debt You want it instantly You want it now You want it instantly You want to know how Defy it Defeat it My head Your head This is a test ’Cause we are obsessed And I am not going to confess Something will last In your head In your head I’m not ready yet

On the Beach 03:37
Sunset on a windy beach Between the mountains and the sea I lost my voice, I am so glad Out of speech Here we are, where we wanted to be Similarities with my dream Walk, swim, talk to me Out of reach Because in the flashlight Nothing seems real Because everything seems right I have not enough eyes to see What’s around us on this beach In the lightning we bleach Can you satisfy my curiosity You talk too much There is no such thing as having it all Warm water around my feet In Fall Because in the flashlight Nothing seems real Because everything seems right

Wasteland 03:32
Deflating Like a balloon Released too soon Now falling When I drop into your eyes And the void is mine It’s too soon to decline Under the blurred sky Emptied inside Just for your delight Another excuse to be with you On tears you can rely When I drop into your eyes And the void is mine It’s too soon to decline In an extensive sky It gets me lifted It gets me lost And the void is mine I see a wasteland for butterflies And your fears are mine It is like bees All those needles for my needs On tears we can rely I see a wasteland for butterflies

Changing lights Tell her now Where birds go to sleep Why flowers grow In the night Tell me now About your knight It doesn't hurt When you don’t know So don’t you worry The world keeps turning around Leaving little girl in the background Let’s go where candy goes Birds change trees In the dark In the park In the light they fly Let’s go where candy goes True intentions only True intentions to you The day comes that the bird flies What did she say That she runs away True intentions to you

Tightrope 02:50
Inside – outside – upside down Like a tightrope walker Wavering above the ground Like a drunk but sober And the world sways Don’t say you’re stupid Inside is outside The other way around Like a tightrope walker Wavering above the ground Inside – outside – upside down And when you enter I see changes And I am sorry If I was not grateful We’ve got science Knowledge refines Money talks all the time I’m alright Set me in motion Pull ahead instead Catch yourself on Pull ahead instead It’s the money That gives notion instead

Fifty-Nine 02:31
Now take the card And turn it around Lay it apart or back It’s the face of imagination In a carte blanche On my way to integration Now our ways start to cross And you talk me ahead The route is shifted And it’s pointing to the track What we aim for and do not get Is nominated for a faceless death It’s no coincidence but the interference Now our ways start to cross And you talk me ahead The route is shifted And it’s pointing to the track Born again in chains I believe I can change Repetitive without shame Now lost in the game Now take the card And turn it around
11.
Cold Water 05:31
The ocean rocks you like a baby Ignorant Maybe you are just like me Undercover, under the surface Keep your cool The ocean never sleeps Drifting further, deep inside Immersed in underwater life Do you want to dive Wide are the waves Deep is the ocean While you were drifting further You were swimming next to me Don’t stay behind An ocean is bigger than the sea Free from care, free from weight Down there in the dim light Let’s forget about ourselves And we are free Drifting further, deep inside It’s a matter of trust If you want to dive Swimming next to me Where are you going Pull me under in ecstacy Cold water, reflects the inside Cold water, if you want to dive Wide are the waterways Is there enough space in the deep Don’t be afraid, the ocean never sleeps Don’t be afraid, have faith in me Cold water, reflects the inside Cold water, if you want to dive
12.
Between the stars and the waves My head is somewhere else with you Burning in the flames And I can’t stop to hide it Nobody seems to care Aware that I’m in your mind You are allowed to dream While I’m feeling the anger Anonymous in the dark And the smell of danger I’m afraid I can wait You are no stranger Every time when the river freezes I thought I knew you Blind belief became a thief It saves me Blind belief became a thief It saves me Every time when the river freezes I think I know you And I shiver

about

Labasheeda Amsterdam, Netherlands

Growling, dynamic stuff here from the Netherlands. Labasheeda make intelligent but not emotionless, angular rock music; it's a brooding sound
with touchstones in the post rock (some gorgeous violin playing in parts) and post-hardcore camps. singer Saskia van der giessen in forlorn almost-romantic vocals which sound all the more sharp set to a back ground
of foreboding guitar chimes.
