about

Mayday is about living in the moment and doing stupid stuff. It is inspired by my constant search for chaos and the consequences of it. Musically it features my most authentic approach so far as well as a perfect band consisting of Marco Jencarelli (guitars), Ivo Henzi (bass) and Merlin Sutter (drums).

It is honest, sarcastic and provocative.

lyrics

Mayday, mayday, mayday, mayday…

This time I went too far
(In the depths of the lonely windy night)
And now I'm in too deep
(down in shit crying out for you to help me)
What's your problem with me?
(come to think I don't really give a fuck now)
Go get a life, take my keys

I want to feel it every day
Living like it's all a game
I want to feel it every day
On the edge and insane

How is it when you're alone?
(I can tell by your eyes that you don't seem very happy)
All huddled up and bored
(left the womb that you wish to crawl back into)
I want to take you away
(from your source of protection)
To things you've never seen

I want to feel it every day
Living like it's all a game
I want to feel it every day
On the edge and insane

The sun will fall down one day
And you'll try to run away
You want to have it all
Risk nothing
I tried to show you and now you're lost

Behold the dark
So dark
And you're lost…
In the shadow of things I've done

Keep falling down
Hold on to your distorted version of the truth
See it all for yourself
Crying mayday, mayday, mayday, may….

Mayday, mayday, mayday…
(lots and lots more maydays…)
