    Let us tell you the story of this record.

    A long time ago Matthias (Down The Valley) ordered some significantly beautiful CD packaging from a printshop in Oregon, USA, but never used it. Years later, in 2016, when he found it somewhere in his house, he told Gerd (We Are Leaves) about it. That was when the idea was born to create a split-EP with cover versions of each other‘s songs on it.

    In summer 2019 we finally started recording. After a few months and with the help of Johnny Trouble (recording and mixing DTV songs) and Jens Huerkamp (mastering) we had finished the production. Thanks, sonic magicians!

    We could not be happier that our friend David Arzt provided us with a selection of his photographs for the EP cover and each one of the songs. He also put together the slick graphic design. Thank you Dave.

    Thank you very much for your support to this date. It means a lot to us.

    Stay safe and spread love.
    Gerd & Matthias

Broken 04:06
Home is just another word for being with you You’re so close to me, but I can’t hardly reach you even if I try and I try and try so hard We’re goin separate ways I hope that we will meet one day Hope is just another word for a little faith Well I’m completely lost, no matter how I try You won’t forsake me and I, I cry and cry But there’s no other way I hope I’ll be with you one day Home is just another word for being with you But you’re so far away and I can’t even reach you Even if I try and I try and try We’ve lost our common days I hope we’ll meet again one day
Howl 03:36
When I'm out on my own Far away from my home When the moon hides her face on the edge of the day Then I howl for heavens sake I don't wanna be alone
Invisible 03:53
Like snow is falling to the ground I know you're there, you're all around Like snow is dancing in the air I know you're there, I know you care For me, even if I don't see At least I can believe Like water is running down a stream You touch my heart, you make it clean Like sun is lighting up the day I know you will forever stay With me, even if I can't see At least I can believe
Weapons 03:06
You sell weapons still you wonder why they fight You close boarders still you wonder why so many die Do you remember your idea of human rights? Is it a privilege for the ones who live inside? Come on we want to see your passion again Come on we want to see how you will make new friends We’re the people! is what you’re shouting on the streets Your exclusive demonstration of your hideous beliefs Only cowards put the blame on refugees Bloody shame we do not welcome them in peace.
