Stomp 03:58
I do the dance I do the dance I shake my legs and I shake my hands All around Come watch the clown It takes two to tango and one limb to fail why do they laugh and shout out 'Hail' when I'm down? GIve me the crown Oh the cloven foot stomp I do the walk the tight rope walk Stumbling down ‘though I tried to stalk All around Come watch the clown can't keep the pace can't keep the pace makes the world a lonely place when you're down Take back the crown Oh where do you go? Oh the cloven stomp blame me lord for what I’ve done tried to be your special one with my hoof my cloven foot but I knocked them down, I knocked them down then I stamped them into the ground with my hoof the cloven foot

You need some help, you want to break your plastic knife, your silver plate we’ll force the night into the day I know a way that leads astray C’mon, c’mon….follow C’mon, c’mon….come out to play C’mon, C’mon…shallow C’mon, C’mon Hold me, I was so bold when they told me, I will grow old when they tell me No I never break that spell Get your pads and rocking horse Later on we’ll find remorse

Love be gone 03:41
Love be gone and take her with you She did me wrong she’s been untrue Lying lonesome by her side Trying to keep her out of sight Tonight we’ll fight Love be gone I can’t take it anymore Make it all undone like it ́s been before When her lies had been truth And the word still its use Tonight we’ll fight Strung out, strung out again Put me back in line So long, masterplan Now I’m prepared to die And I try, try and try I can’t get her out of mind Love be gone I can’t take her anymore Make it all unsung like it was before Lying lonesome by her side Try to keep her out of mind Tonight we’ll fight Strung out, strung out again Put me back in line So long, masterplan Now I’m prepared to die And I try, try and try I can’t get her out of mind

Foliage 03:17
The falling leaves down on the street Like children's hands at the playground fence That lose their grip and down they slip Into the street like falling leaves Catch me, catch me, catch me I’m falling down For the love that you share For the love you can spare Please just make these days go by The falling leaves like bloody sheets the path we walk right into the dark Catch me, catch me, catch me I’m falling down For the love that you share For the love you can spare Please just make these days go by

I was the boy next door and you’re the queen of the second floor living in a cage made of gold and mother’s rage does all that life could bring seem to fit between the front seat of some car broken bones and broken hearts and you crushed into this sleep a hundred miles per hour deep so please wake up and take me by the hand and lead me far from where it ought to end now they dressed you up in white like an unkissed, unwilling bride lying in a cage filled with blood and inner rage and you crushed into this sleep a hundred miles per hour deep so please wake up and take me by the hand and lead me far from where it ought to end

All my love 03:00
The war in my head the troops have gathered on a battlefield of ... and misery Not love misguides us but hope divides us and the side you chose to be on and she begged my not to expect and she asked me not to tell a thing all my love The war in my head and all that's been said a wall of words has been built between you and me Not love misguides us but hope divides us and the side you chose to be on

I'd like to be the one for you who catches you in the rye I'd like to be the one for you who gets you by and by but you don't need me

about

Black As Chalk Göttingen, Germany

Rustic and sensual. Sparse and spooky. Furious and lucid. Black As Chalk are wrenching a sound out of their souls, their instruments and the gritty, rainy alleys of their age-old hometown Göttingen; which combines the clashing impact of Noiserock with the atmospheric poetry of original Indie-aesthetics. Timeless melodies hide deep in the apparent chaos of the garage. ... more
