about

We're so incredibly excited and proud that we managed to create a song like As Soon As America! It's our first song that was written on the basis of a drum machine beat. Aesthetically, we were inspired by bands such as Twenty One Pilots, The 1975 and a lot of modern indie pop music and hip-hop in general. From the beginning onwards we aimed for a symbiosis of band sound, bedroom pop and gospel choir. If the relationship started to get a little uneven during demo recording, production or the mix, we immediately counteracted, because we wanted the track to not fit into any of these categories clearly.

lyrics

this isn’t right
this is a curse
this is a shame
reality hurts
do I really have to be alone?

she is like this
he is like that
I’m gonna be nothing I guess
something that I never understood
see kid,
this is a car
this is a plane
this is what made humanity fail
this is all I know about today
this is your house
this is your room
there’s nothing between you and the moon
only just 200.000 miles
and I don’t want to be dead as soon as America
but I really want to see this to the end
no I don’t want to be loved and left like America
but I really want to feel alive again

worry about
nothing and doubt
if someone tells you
the opposite now
everybody wants to rule the world

this isn’t right
this isn’t wrong
this isn’t weak
this isn’t strong
maybe just a little bit too much

I don’t want to make it out alive, alone

and I don’t want to be dead as soon as America
but I really want to see this to the end
no I don’t want to be loved and left like America
but I really want to feel alive again
no I don’t want to be dead as soon as America
but I really want to see this to the end
no I don’t want to be loved and left like America
and express my feelings through the internet
