Central station, you're on vacation but you never really get somewhere. The radio has got no power, you're singing in the shower but it never gets you anywhere. You feel like a stranger and that your life's in danger. No one to take care of you. There's only one thing you know how to do... You're a birthday boy playing with sharp toys. The only thing you seem to enjoy. You always come in last and you're fading fast no matter how much you run. Such a simple task but you never dared to ask if you could go out and have fun. If only you had asked to play outside. Would you spend your life trying to hide?

It feels like pulling teeth. Books filled with autumn leaves. See rotten shades of brown. Got to get the hell out of this town. Well, I guess there's something wrong with me because nobody else here seems to see the irony. Somebody stop this train. Take walks in the rain. They seem to soothe the pain but I can't live with the shame. So, I guess there's something wrong with me because nobody else here seems to see the irony.

I never saw myself as a loudmouth. You don't understand what this is all about. Sometimes I yell but I don't shout. How can I rid you of all your doubts? Baby, all you got to do is listen. There are way too many things that you've been missing. I never saw myself as a quitter. I'm not cut out to be your babysitter. Nothing's ever easy when I'm with her. I should have taken advice from her sister.

Can't hardly wait. Always too late. Will you be anywhere? You don't seem to care. Standing in the rain. Won't wash away the pain. Try to keep an open mind. Baby, I'm not blind. My shoe's untied and I'm uptight. Long way to go. Tell myself it ain't so. Long-gone smiles. I shut my eyes. I still need you. You know what to do. Save me for a rainy day. Can't make up my mind. Can't be kind. Try to keep away from ways you pave. Hanging from trees for all to see. You come around. I make no sound. I'm obsessed and you're stressed. I wish I could do what I should. Leave you alone. Stay on my own. Baby, would you please just talk to me. Don't trust me. I can't trust myself.

I'll be myself and admit I need help. I'm sorry to say you can't make me stay. I know you'll find a way to make me pay. Simplistic, yet motivated gestures from smiling but deeply-saddened jesters. It's hard to take a long breath when you're chest hurts. You'll be yourself and you don't need help. You never say what you want to say. I know you'll find a way to make me pay.

about

Versus You Luxembourg

Since 2005 we've released some records, seen a few drummers come and go, played a hell of a lot of shows and toured Eastern Europe, Russia and the UK twice. We try to be honest and true to ourselves and everyone else and sometimes succeed and sometimes fail miserably. We're always broke because we put everything we got into this band. The name means absolutely nothing. ... more
