Everywhere Somewhere is Nowhere is a musical collage. Most of the songs were written and recorded in 2015 – 2016. A few of them are older and have been waiting patiently for their moment. Uncompromising in style and attitude, the music and lyrics are both dark and spirited, reflecting the times we live in. So look behind the curtain and check under the bed ... Everywhere somewhere is nowhere.

Track Name: Gone so Many Years

A dead drunk on the road
Spirit rising high
Suddenly no more
You left me asking why
Waiting takes me slowly
And creeps as it appears
I'll never know the changes
Gone so many years

In my book you've written
Your hand still young and free
Silence is my meaning
Those words were meant for me
Too soon without knowing
You rest in many tears
The poet's words were saying
Gone so many years

Landmarks small and plenty
I hold them when I pass
It's with you I'll dream
Long in summer grass
If I find that mountain
Before you reappear
I'll carry you there with me
Gone so many years
Track Name: Gravy Days

My old man said to me
Your tune'll change gradually
When it does, you won’t know
How it ends or where it goes
Once there was a quiet place
Somewhere I could rest my head
But those gravy days were over
Those gravy days were gone and dead

Roll the dice, pick a card
Talk is cheap when luck goes hard
Maybe I'm just a fool
Trusting in the golden rule
Looking for the right place
Somewhere I can know what's said
But those gravy days were over
Those gravy days were gone and dead

Chase the moon, chase the bone
Between a rock and a stone
All I got it lasts a day
When it’s gone, it’s gone to stay
So I'm looking for the best place
Somewhere I can dream instead
‘Cause those gravy days are over
Those gravy days are gone and dead
Track Name: On Lines

The back line, the bottom line
There's no exceptions made here
A line which is drawn
From one end to the other
Going back past your mother
A line leaving no trace
Which is far beyond time and space
Is it crooked or curved
Thick, thin or straight through
A line stretching directly from me to you

Lines are joining, some never meet
Front lines or on the side
Borderlines are there between us too
Broken lines and those of fire
There´s lines of duty and desire
The party line, red, white and blue
Maybe powered, fine and clean
Getting in or out of line
Read carefully in between

That's the yellow line
Crossing lines, waist, water and air
Lines spreading above your feet
Bee lines and tree lines
Lines to communicate through
Piped like water and oil
Coastal and global lines measured in soil
Headlines and deadlines
Lines to tow and go through
All those lines out there
Getting a line on you
Track Name: Rise and Shine

Once you tried to catch that summer breeze
Thinking you could beat the old disease
It must've been a big surprise
As you began to realise
Who you are and who you'd never be

All the charms you mastered only changed
Beneath your feet life got rearranged
You expected least of all
No one came, dared to call
Asking for the fool on the hill

If I knew
I couldn't say
One more freak who looked away
So holding back a tear or two
All the best and here's to you
Today, rise and shine

Do you tend to see things black and white
It's a shade to colour as you like
None more clever, to the wise
Even as you close your eyes
From the ashes rise and shine
Track Name: Mary's Letter

It feels so different now
Our desires plain to see
We are known she wrote
Lost the fantasy

Her feelings flowing from a sadness she saw
A moment that we passed through
Summer changed to winter
Uncertain what I recall
There's no answer

I wish I could tell her
In a letter I'd write today
Longing long beyond
The place we couldn't stay

She wrote our love had no shame
But by surprise we soon became
No longer strangers
We’re statues reaching out
Behind a wall of doubt
No longer strangers
Forever reaching out
Behind a wall of doubt
Track Name: Nothing is Everywhere / Waiting For You / Out of the Ether 2

Thinking about nothing at all
Is it big or very small
It's as empty as the space
Around the things I embrace
It's everywhere and nowhere too
And what it is, is up to you
Echos all around

When it's hollow I fill it quick
And in my mind it's a kind of trick
So many notions, but a guess
If it's more or if it's less
I got no answer to offer here
Cause all I find disappears
Waiting there like you

Some return and some will go
They talk to you still no one knows
So ramble on, oh where to be
‘Cause free to go, ain't being free
It's everywhere and nowhere too
And what it is, is nothing too
Echos all around in a place
Track Name: Morning Meshes

Gone is the darkness, dawn unfolds
Shadows in my mind have lost their hold
Morning mist is sighing
Light is peeking through the trees
There's a scent of cedar on the breeze

On a lake reflecting perfectly
Clouds slip by like thoughts that come to me
Listen to the water
Of a lazy afternoon
From meshes of my city room

Weaving all my dreams from far away
Morning of a yesterday
