Killing For A God

 

MILE

(Nathan Pure, written in June 2015)

" Smile is a song about the fading of love, the disappearing of trust and  confidence happening over time.

Something that seems to occur with no chance  to stop it, no matter how hard you try, somehow fatal.

We can slow it down, we can try to bring this felling back, but in the end we may fail.

Then there is just one thing left to do, smile! And try to keep the great memories alive. "

SMILE

Lend me your ears

Gimmy me your smile

I’ll sing you a lovely lullaby

Share me a teardrop and

I will share you mine

A love that’s so hard to find

 

Give me your love

Find me a rhyme

Write me a poem, lend my your time

Tell me a secrets, and I will tell you mine

A love that’s so hard to find.

 

Now that we're so far apart, I got to see

There’s nothing we can do about, just set us free

As the time is passing by our life has changed along the way

I know it makes no sense to pray

But I would do it if it makes you stay

No I never wanted you walk away

Still trying to keep you close and stay

 

Lend me your ears

Lend me your smile

I’ll sing you a lovely lullaby

Tell me a secret, and I will tell you mine

A love that’s so hard to find.

A love that’s so hard to find

 

Guitar Solo

 

Now that we're so far apart, I got to see

There’s nothing we can do about, just set us free

As the time is passing by our life has changed along the way

I know it makes no sense to pray

But I would do it if it makes you stay

No I never wanted you walk away

Still trying to keep you close and stay

 

Lend me your ears

Lend me your smile

I’ll sing you a lovely lullaby

Tell me a secret, and I will tell you mine

A love that’s so hard to find.

A love that’s so hard to find

A love that’s so hard to find

FALLING DOWN
(Nathan Pure, written in Feb 2014)

"FALLING DOWN is a song about a believed friendship that turned out to be quite one-sided.

We often build up relationships that do not hold what they promise to each other. Most of the time no side is directly responsible for that, it is some kind of weird "wish of thinking" from both that leads to a completely different point of view in the end.

Anyway it is quite disappointing when you find out, that the real life loyalty is not what you expected it to be - and what you were willing to give (at least that is what you think). "

Unluckily most of my stories  truly happended - like this one.

FALLING DOWN

 

Guy you hit me right out of the blue tonight

Telling me you cannot help me with my fight

Thought that we were a team, working out every seam

But it turned out that my team is just me, just me!

 

Well ok I took the blame and hit the floor

When I just crawled up again you knocked at my door

Asking me for some clue, you don’t know what to do,

Just a little bit of helping out it’s really not a deal oh god

 

Can’t you really hear,

Your hellous burning fear,

Of ending up lone,

Stuck in a cave lone with dead stone,

Nobody is there,

Meaning no one to care,

Keeping you off the edge away from jumping out

and see yourself a falling down,

You’re Falling, Falling down,

Well You’re Falling, falling down

 

Took a break to bring my mind on better ways

Looking out for people trustworthy it says

As the days went on by, got some friends to rely

And along the way I found myself a home

 

Everytime I meet you on the street,

Well you look at me as if I was the freek!

Still asking me for some clue, ya don’t know what to do,

Just a little bit of helping out it’s really not a deal oh god

 

Can’t you really hear,

Your hellous burning fear,

Of ending up lone,

Stuck in a cave lone with dead stone,

Nobody is there,

Meaning no one to care,

Keeping you off the edge away from jumping out

and see yourself a falling down,

Well You’re Falling, you’re Falling down,

Well You’re Falling,

 

Now I know what I do,

to make you see what is true

I just let you live your way

And in the end you’ll see,

you’re ending up to be

Left all alone and standing on the edge

and see yaself a diving down

 

you’re Falling, you’re Falling down,

You’re Falling, well you’re falling down

you’re Falling, you’re Falling down,

You’re Falling, well you’re falling down

 

Took a break to bring my mind on better ways

Looking out for people trustworthy it says

As the days went on by, got some friends to rely

And along the way I found myself a home...  a home

Will U Ever Stay
(Nathan Pure/Gert Stindl, written in Jan 2014)

"Will U Ever Stay, is - truely - about my "so called" first - unfulfilled - love. Though I was not aware of that fact when I wrote it, everything fits perfectly when I remember this very special kind of "first time" emotion!

Connected to the music of that time, the song is a reminiscence on the 80's, and on the same level I loved this girl, I love this song.

But - as most stories - this song also has a second level of interpretation, which was the more obvious one for me at the beginning, when I wrote it.

It is about our desires, about the wish that all the good things in life may stay forever. Well you can expect - they won't!

But don't get depressed, maybe new things are on their way, to bring  you more joy & love you ever thought is possible!"

Song written in Jan 2014

Will U Ever Stay

 

Colours getting red and blue

Nothing that compares to you

Are the simple words for something so intense

 

Oh your eyes I won’t forget,

when we both first met

My heart jumped upside down cause you said we’re friends

 

Then in one moment it all changed

I new it when you called out my name

 

Will you ever stay

More than just a day

You can count on my desire

May I ever be around you

Every night and day - I want to

Now that you are here

I can’t fight the fear

That you will never be

The coolest part of my life’s destiny

 

Baby I will care for you

Like anyone who really loves will do

Let the light of my devotion brighten up your day

 

Let me be your man

And I’ll do anything that I can

To make you the princess in our play

 

There’s just one thing I need to know

Oh Babe I’ll never let you go

 

Will you ever stay

More than just a day

You can count on my desire

May I ever be around you

Every night and day - I want to

Now that you are here

I can’t fight the fear

That you will never be

The coolest part of my life’s destiny

 

And I’m waiting for a word of you

There is nothing more that I can do

I opened up my heart,

Hoping that you’ll be the part

Missing in my life and make me complete

 

Will you ever stay

More than just a day

You can count on my desire

May I ever be around you

Every night and day - I want to

Now that you are here

I can’t fight the fear

That you will never be

The coolest part of my life’s destiny

Now that you are here

I can’t fight the fear

That you will never be

The coolest part of my life’s destiny

Now that you are here

Oh I hope my dear

That you will always stay

And brighten up this sunny day

UGLY DICTATORS (Nathan Pure/Gert Stindl,

basically written in March 2014, recorded from March to June 2015)

 

"Ugly Dictators was inspired by the "little green man" occupying Crimea in Jan 2015. This highly absurd and disturbing situation, that a man like Mr. Putin can bend the obvious in an absolutely unbelievable way, really needed to be adressed.

In a case like that, songwriting is really therapeutical! It helps from exploding! - Oh, that's a dangerous metapher today,  I mean it strictly metaphorical of course!

And I never understood why a person like Richard Branson wastes so much money and energy in a - in my view - "completely senseless spaceship project!"

But, then I understood!

In early days rejected dictators were banned to a lonely island, maybe now we can ship them to outa space onto a distant planet. Maybe THAT is the plan of Mr. Richard Branson, and in that case I strongly support it!"

Song written in March 2014, recorded from March to June 2015

UGLY DICTATORS

 

All you ugly Dictators round the world

Help yourself try’n to keep ya cozy curled

Cause you’ll face a real challenge to your dream

Being the only one’s with real ice cream

So flee, Just flee

 

All the money you stole will be in freeze

Or it is sent to be lost by the banks of greece

All the prisoners you made cause of mind

Will return and I think they won’t treat ya kind!

 

So flee, just flee

Oh flee, to your isle so dear

Just flee, and if you really wanna try

Rule the moon or whatever - just fly!

 

Can you think of a world without you guys

Beeing funny and lovely and really nice

All the PUSSY RIOTS on the street

Would have nothing to do but earn their freedom’s seed

So flee, just flee

 

So I tell ya as you would have told me

Leave this planet if you do not agree

Take the first flight with virgin to the moon

Don’t mind I’ll pay it for you, just take it soon!

 

So flee, just flee

Oh flee, to your isle so dear

Just flee, and if you really wanna try

rule the moon or whatever - just fly!

 

So flee, just flee

Oh flee, to your isle so dear

Just flee, and if you really wanna try

burn the sun or whatever - just fly!

 

As long as you got the chance

As long as we’re not really angry

And Mr. Richard Branson

Really needs your money,

 

So all you ugly Dictators round the world

Help yourself try’n to keep ya cozy curled

Cause you’ll face a real challenge to your dream

Being the only one’s with real ice cream

 

So flee, just flee

Oh flee, to your isle so dear

Just flee, and if you really wanna try

rule the moon or whatever - just fly!

 

So flee, just flee

Oh flee, to your isle so dear

Just flee, and if you really wanna try

rule the moon or whatever - just fly!

 

Just flee, just flee, just fly ….

 

Rule the moon or whatever – just fly!

Burn the sun or whatever – just fly!

I tell ya Venus is waiting – just fly!

 

Thanks to Mr. Richard Branson:

“Now I know why you built this

absolutely fucking senseless spaceship”

Walking all alone
(Nathan Pure)

Walking All Alone is a song about homeless people.

It was inspired by my concert at the Vinzidorf, a homeless shelter in Graz and my experiences in London during my recording sessions in 2011 and 2012. Homeless people are very present on the streets there and on the other hand the

life-story of some - in the end - successful world class musicians is not that different at all, and could have easily ended up living under a bridge too.

So all these people, when they are down on the bottom of our society, are still hoping that something or someone will bring them back to their former life - which seldom gets reality.

"Life slipped away, and suddenly was all gone, and all I feel is, that I just ran out of luck, and I'm still waiting for this train to pick me up"

 

Bass played by Gert Stindl.

Drums played by Franz Lechner.

Additional guitars by Heli Glatz.

Vocals, guitars, piano & keys by Nathan Pure.

Produced, mixed & mastered by Nathan Pure.

Recorded between April 2016 and March 2017

Video concept: Herbert Potzmann & Nathan Pure

Vers1:

I got a lot a time to think

A lot a people passing by

A lot of lights are turning on and out again

And I am still there, waiting for the time to pass by

Vers2:

I took my coat, my bag, my cane and walked away

Out into the darkest night , no place to stay

But it’s now better than before,

was trapped in life, kept out the door

was feeling like a stranger lying with his face flat on the floor.

Chorus:

I don’t know what’s gone wrong

Live slipped away, suddenly was all/just gone

And all I feel is that I just ran out of luck

And I’m still waiting for this train to pick me up

Vers3:

Give me hope and drop some coin

No it will not change a thing, but keeps me going

Thought a lot of times to go

To walk away and leave the show

But there’s something in my mind that keeps me holding on.

Chorus:

I don’t know what’s gone wrong

Live slipped away, suddenly was all/just gone

And all I feel is that I just ran out of luck

And I’m still waiting for, this train to bring me out a this town

Mid:

Oh it keeps me moving on, it keeps me moving on, oh it keeps me breathin on, that there’s this train to come

Well  I’m sleeping on my own, walking all alone,  yeah I'm done, all said and gone, waiting for this train to bring me home

Chorus:

I don’t know what’s gone wrong

Live slipped away, suddenly was all/just gone

And all I feel is that I just ran out of luck

And I’m still waiting for, this train to bring me out a this town

Endpart

Again,  Let me be,

let me flee, away from me,

set me free, let me be, ...
