Max Painter One of the best albums I've ever heard. Compilerbau's continued evolution as an artist is astounding to me. Also, some of the best/most intricate vocals/songwriting I've heard from Dana Jean yet! What a cool and unlikely (yet pitch perfect) duo. Can't get enough of this shit. Please don't ever stop making music!!!!!
Favorite track: Roll in The Dice

about

A FAIRY TALE

Thousands of years ago there was a planet called Paradise. The planet was almost completely devastated by a gravity wave. A Trickster appeared shortly after that and tried to exploit the suffering survivors. After he brainwashed them all he was able to control them forever.

A thousand years later, after the powerful Trickster was gone, the inhabitants of the planet had „learned“ to outsmart themselves day after day in order to „improve“ life on the planet. As time went on, everything on Paradise became a trick.

Another thousand years later, a sun in a close star system threatened to explode. The people on Paradise helplessly prayed for a trick. Ultimately, the sun exploded. Only a few suffering beeings survived the disaster. Someday a Trickster appeared on Paradise...

Track Name: Nomad (feat. Dana Jean Phoenix)
CHORUS

I FEEL LIKE
I SEE
THE WORLD SPINNIN' UNDER MY FEET
WALKIN' UP A HILL
BUT I'M STANDIN' STILL
WIND BLOWIN' MY HAIR
I'M UP IN THE AIR
OUTTA THIS WORLD

VERSE 1

IN FAR OFF DISTANT PLACES
WHERE PEOPLE DON'T LOOK LIKE ME AT ALL
WHO LOVE WITH DIFFERENT FACES
THE SAME HEART LEAPS WHEN LOVE COMES TO CALL
AND ALL THE BORDERS BETWEEN US
ARE JUST MAN-MADE PORTS INTO CALL
AINT NO OCEAN CAN BEAT US
WALK THE ROAD THROUGH THE RAIN AND THE FOG

CHOURS

[...]

VERSE 2

THEY NEVER TOLD ME 'BOUT MOUNTAINS
THE ONES THAT LOOK DOWN TO CALL MY NAME
THEY NEVER WARNED ME 'BOUT FALLIN'
THAT I COME TO EMBRACE THE PAIN
AND ME AND THOSE PEOPLE I've COME TO LOVE
BLEED THE SAME RED BLOOD
BEATING HEARTS PUMP - THROUGH - OUR - VEINS
AND I CAN TELL THAT YOU'RE NOT FREE
IF YOU STAND AND SAY TO ME
THAT YOU'VE - NE - VER- FELT - THE - SAME

CHORUS

[...]

BRIDGE

IT'S INCREDIBLE
UNFORGETTABLE
HOW CLOSE
WE ARE
TO BEING
ONE
ONE

CHOURS

[...]

ADLIB

I'M A NOMAD
I WANT YOU SO BAD
BUT YOU'RE OUTTA THIS WORLD
OOH OUTTA THIS WORLD
OUTTA THIS WORLD (REPEATED)
Track Name: Never Fall Away (feat. Dana Jean Phoenix)
NEVER FALL AWAY
Lyrics by: Dana Jean Phoenix

CHORUS

STAND UP AND BE COUNTED
BE HEARD FOR THE FIRST DAY
STAND UP AND BE COUNTED
NEVER FALL AWAY (X3)

VERSE 1

THE SUN IS SETTING SOFTLY
ON THE LAST DAYS OF OUR LIVES
AT LEAST THAT'S THEIR PROPAGANDA
BUT WE WON'T FALL FOR THEIR LIES
THEY FEAR US, CUZ WE'RE DIFFERENT
AND KNOW -
WE'LL NEVER STEP IN LINE
CUZ THAT LEAVES YOU ONE STEP BEHIND
AFRAID TO LEAD AND SPEAK YOUR MIND

CHORUS

[...]

VERSE 2

THEY LABEL US THE REBELS
CUZ WE WON'T BUY WHAT THEY SELL
THEY WANT US FIGHTING ONE ANOTHER
WHILE THEY LEAD US STRAIGHT TO HELL
WE ARE DIFFERENT PEOPLE
BUT STILL,
TOGETHER, HERE WE DWELL
ALONE WE LOSE SO MIGHT AS WELL
UNIFY TO FREE OURSELVES

CHORUS

[...]

BRIDGE

STAND UP
----
YOU'VE GOT TO STAND NOW, COME ON
STAND UP

YOU'VE GOT TO STAND UP, COME ON
STAND UP (X2)
----

THIS IS YOUR LIFE
STAND UP AND FIGHT
THIS IS YOUR LIFE
STAND UP
Track Name: Roll in The Dice (feat. Dana Jean Phoenix)
VERSE 1

YOU SHAKE THE DICE AND PRAY FOR LUCK
YOU WANNA SEE A MILLION BUCKS
YOU FEEL 'EM TURNIN OVER IN YOUR HANDS
YOU SHAKE 'EM HIGH THEN KISS YA FIST
YOU TOSS 'EM WITH A FLICK OF YOUR WRIST

YOUR HEAD'S IN OVERDRIVE, YOU'VE GOT A PLAN
OH WOO HOO HOO HOO

CHORUS

IT'S NOT A GAMBLE CUZ YOU KNOW
THAT YOU ARE IN CONTROL
YOUR HEART IS BEATING
ROLL, ROLL, ROLL-ROLL-ROLL
(ROLL, ROLL, ROLL)

VERSE 2

A FLASH OF LIGHT SHINING OFF OF THE DICE
THEY ROLL AND TUMBLE AND THEY SLIDE LIKE ICE
THEY HIT THE TABLE AND THE NUMBERS SHOW THEIR FACE
YOU START TO JUMP LIKE YOU'VE GOTTEN YOUR WISH
LIKE GRINNING BACK IS A SIX AND A SIX
BUT ONE LAST TURN REVEALS YOUR FATE
OH WOO HOO HOO HOO

CHORUS

[...]

BRIDGE

OOH BUT THE ROLL HASN'T STOPPED
OOH MOMENTUM'S MORE THAN YOU THOUGHT
NO, YOU WILL NEVER BEAT THE HOUSE
OOH, THEY TEETER-TOTTER TEETER-TOTTER

VERSE 3

AND WHEN THEY LAND THE FINAL MOVE
FACE UP WITH ONE AND ONE, THAT'S TWO
IT'S LIKE THE DICE HAVE TURNED ON YOU
AND NOW YOUR BLOOD IS RUNNING COLD
YOU SHOULD'VE STOPPED AND SLOWED YOUR ROLL
CUZ NOW YOUR WORLD IS SPINNING OUT OF YOUR HOLD
OH WOO HOO HOO HOO

AND WHEN THEY LAND THE FINAL MOVE
FACE UP WITH ONE AND ONE, THAT'S TWO
IT'S LIKE THE DICE HAVE TURNED ON YOU
(ITS LIKE THE DICE HAVE TURNED ON YOU)
AND NOW YOUR BLOOD IS RUNNING COLD
YOU SHOULD'VE STOPPED AND SLOWED YOUR ROLL
CUZ NOW YOUR WORLD IS SPINNING OUT OF YOUR HOLD
OH WOO HOO HOO HOO

CHORUS

IT'S A GAMBLE NOW YOU KNOW
THAT YOU'RE NOT IN CONTROL
YOUR HEART IS BEATING
ROLL, ROLL, ROLL-ROLL-ROLL
(ROLL, ROLL, ROLL)
