Alarm Clock 04:26
Why can't I sleep? in the middle of the night short cutted scenes in a bizarre light in front of the ocean a hole in the sand your hand on my shoulder your constant breath Why can't I sleep? Why don't you let me go? short cutted scenes a broken glass a hole in the sand they laughing about you I turn around and you ask if I'm OK why can't I sleep why can't I sleep why can't I sleep why can't I sleep

Pursuers 04:20
sorry / apologize / I'm blinded / a white light / you take the money / you make me fear / can tell me / why I fail / tell me / tell me / tell me / traffic lights / flickering / I'm in a cabin / on the motorway / shaking of / the pursers / can tell me / who you are? / tell me / tell me / tell me/
3.
Am I sleeping / Or Am I awake / Am I sleeping / Or Am I awake / wake up my friend / can't you hear them / whispering, whispering / spells into your ear / poisoning your mind / intrude your dreams / (spoken part) you think you clever / well, you not / you think you got it / well, you don't / you think have me / well, you don't / you think one day / well, no, no / wake up my friend / the witches are gone / the streets are empty / the borders are open / you should take your love by the hand / and leave the old house / (spoken part) you think you clever / well, you not / you think you got it / well, you don't / you think have me / well, you don't / you think one day / well, no, no /
4.
When, When 05:57
under the lantern / there is a long shadow from tomorrow / if you step through / this gate it won't open again / silver skyscrapers / they are looking down at you / you lost the code / to open the box with your luggage / thousand of people / rush through the rail station / your phone / has no connection any more / In a future home / I'm afraid all doors are locked / In a future home / I'm afraid I won't find the keys / In a future home / I'm afraid when all lights are out / In a future home / oh I don't want to be there alone / when the director leaves the studio and stares into the sun / when the student wakes up next to his girlfriend after the argument / when the taxi driver drives through the sunrise in Berlin / when the passenger drinks his first coffee of the day / when, when / hmmmm when, when / hmmmm when the night is over all doubts are gone / when the night is over all doubts are gone / and the black glasses / are no longer on my face / and the black glasses / are no longer on my face /

opening my travel bag a book of hundreds notes I left the wooden floor alone in my room opening the shutters minor chords and cut of beats went to all doors over the institutions floor I lost my way in a dark spring fog with goodbye tears I took a seat and we talked about all fears and darkness with a new map I started again a drink with friends a date at the river a kiss at night wishes and disappointments on TV-screen and LED I took the train for a two hour ride a cave to hide when she said goodbye the rhythm was still there in my heart six people on a field a horse in the woods a dance in the dunes the luck to have you applause and congrats a film nobody sees with the steering wheel through weeks of bad sleep I really don't know if it was right or wrong all can I say it came from my heart and now I'm here in front of the mic a warm light falls through the window I shouldn't fear the coming things the good or bad the bright or dark I can‘t ask this train to stop, stop I can‘t ask this train to stop, stop
6.
you came to bite you came to bite and I run you came to back to your business you came to back to your business and I run you follow me in your coat you follow me in your coat and I run you're waiting for me in the corner you're waiting for me in the corner and I run you shouldn't mess me you shouldn't mess me and I run you throw a punch you throw a punch and I duck and if you open up this door there is no one in this room no, no no, no because I've been gone because I've been gone

about

Present Paradox Germany

"Dortmund based German artist David Kleinekottman who is clearly as prolific as he is talented. Ambient, experimental, art house and electronica in scope and influenced by Brian Eno, Elbow and Radiohead. I’d say those signposts mark Present Paradox out for closer inspection"
