about

What about you?
Are you with me, when the thundercloud appears?
Do you speak, when you have to?
Do you see the beauty? Do you see natures wonder?
Or will you get lost between the cities and the trees?

"in a small town in germany where there's nothing to do except watch cows getting older, two neurotic musicians decided to escape insanity and make some art. the result is their very own brand of music, rockotronic pop. "osiris is back" is the first single from their new album, and like their other music is laced with electronic sounds and beats which could have made it cold and rather inhuman. instead, however, museum of neurotic origins manage to make music which is full of warmth and very sweet, peppered with vulnerable, aching vocals."

Track Name: Replace Heartbeatz
until the first beam of spring
someone will divide you from the dark my king
someone will break the fences of the past
you´ll notice everything around
you´ll do

sleep in a violet sapphire
steer to the ground
steer to the ground go under
deep under the sea a meadow ground
stay forever there

(a heart fades out again)

after the end of the fall
no one will provide you a diamond for sure
no one free the kitten from the bag
you will notice anything has passed through

sleep in a violet sapphire
steer to the ground
steer to the ground go under
deep under the sea a meadow ground
stay forever there

(a heart fades out again)


until the first beam of spring
someone will divide you from the dark my king
someone will break the fences of the past
you´ll notice everything around
you´ll do
Track Name: Exterminate The Hive
you can talk or you can hide
take no sword to fight
you can fall or you can climb
but you can not hide the light

you can turn or you can dive
build a wall inside
you can sleep all day all night
but you can not fight the light

but you can not fight
but you can not fight the light
but you can not fight
but you can not fight the light

you can moan and throw your knifes
exterminate the hive
get lost three years in the night
but you can not hide the light

but you can not hide
but you can not fight the light
but you can not hide
but you can not fight the light
Track Name: Deer (Open Season)
are you with me when the thundercloud appears?
i´m not in the mood for lies

the magnetic tape it froze me to death
we smell the decay

we are the deer
open season
we watch the people swagger
we are the deer
open season
oh i´m not in the mood for lies

now i know why love is red like the most warning signals
now i know why love is red like the most warning signals

will we return after cloudburst?
don´t say the good one will always try
your terrible kind of being alive
was not made for me

we are the deer
open season
we watch the people swagger
we are the deer
open season
oh i´m not in the mood for lies


we are the deer
open season
we watch the people swagger
we are the deer
open season
oh i´m not in the mood for lies (x3)
Track Name: Pathfinder (Radio Edit)
you don´t want to walk when the sun won´t shine
you don´t wanna talk without butterflies
you just wanna plant hearts
those who grow in trees
deep down

but if you go out in the midnight
just to find out where they live
in the shadows behind big walls
one hand reaching
one hand dead

this is how the lost hearts beat at midnight
this is how they sound without a feeling
cut asleep
this is how the silence bleed at midnight
this is how a scream flee in the dark

all the halfs and all the pieces
running fast to a drowned ark
dinosaurs are back in the cities
and they deny and they deny

you can count january to december
you can count all the leaves and drops
antarctica will swallow the sunlight
so free the trees out of your hands

this is how the lost hearts beat at midnight
this is how they sound without a feeling
cut asleep
this is how the silence bleed at midnight
this is how a scream flee in the dark
Track Name: Osiris Is Back (Radio Edit)
did you speak as you had to speak
do you sleep when you have to sleep
did you speak as you had to
do you sleep when you have to

nothing comes ahead now
nothing comes ahead now
osiris is back now
osiris is back now

did you speak as you had to speak
do you sleep when you have to sleep
did you speak as you had to
do you sleep when you have to

nothing comes ahead now
nothing comes ahead now
osiris is back now
osiris is back now

nothing comes ahead now
nothing comes ahead now

did you speak as you had to speak
do you sleep when you have to sleep
did you speak as you had to
do you sleep when you have to

nothing comes ahead now
nothing comes ahead now
Track Name: Rival Dance
the world is a pearl for her and the memories are all faked
she doesn´t live here anymore
her breath froze everything

her mouth is closed know
salty cheeks
round and in circles again
she leaves the ground
then tumbling

and soon the leaves will fall down
she´ll be back like every year
to throw her white coat out
let the warmth disappear

summer oh oh

his eyes wide open
sun comes in
round and in circles again and again
he swirls the colors
touches ground
and then
light

now all the leaves falling down
she is back like every year
is throwing her white coat out
and the warmth disappear
Track Name: Memento
all the red valleys and the sweet lilies
they have seen it all before
they are here each night
to observe the sky
and the cities and the trees
and you and me

from the mountaintops to the liquid drops
they named every place before
(how can the sun burn jewels down)
endless symphonies counting memories
sleeping cities sleeping trees
in you in me

please be the heart of me
please
beat a heart in me
i am like a rose in you
i´m like a rose in you

please be the heart of me
please
beat a heart in me
i am like a rose in you
i´m like a rose in you

always remember
i´m back till december
to break the ice
to melt the pieces
always remember
i´ll be back till december
and break the ice
and make the pieces fit

breathe -
please hug me and breathe your heart into me and
please hold me and
breathe -
please hug me and breathe your heart into me and
please hold me and

(how can the sun burn jewels down)
always remember
i´m back till december
to break the ice
to melt the pieces
always remember
i´ll be back till december
and break the ice
and make the pieces fit

... pieces don´t fit
i will make them fit
please breath a heart in me and
please hug me and breathe your heart into me
Track Name: Deepsleep
the city sleeps silently
no one will ever wake up
the sunset slows down in my hands
it feels like a lecture
simply the sunlight is on the run
never forget what the day told
friendly the night redecorate the sky
yellow dots apper to reflect

the city sleeps silently
no more
a several wakeup
the sunset slows down in my hands
it feels like a lecture
simply the sunlight is on the run
never forget what the day told
friendly the night redecorate the sky
yellow dots apper and they sing

come back, come back, comeback tune

the tree you carved a heart in
is missing now all his green
he knows about the springtime
but does not foresee the mess we´re in
frequences taking me pick-a-back style
free falling into horizon
i swing on a little, a little green line
your tiny song repeats in me
it goes

come back, come back, comeback tune

the city sleeps silently
no one will ever wake up
the sunset slows down in my hands
it feels like a lecture
simply the sunlight is on the run
never forget what the day told
friendly the night redecorate the sky
yellow dots apper to reflect
Track Name: The Compass
i am wondering
i don´t see a pretty hall
they speak but were not paragons

well, i hold their map
but the legend i can´t read
what the hell they mean indeed?

i don´t know
i don´t know where to go
so don´t wake me
i don´t know where to hide

when the wolves are out
and the ravens watch the world
i am into it, i know

by the next blink i could cry
why do i not seal it,
or did i?

i cross the fingers and learn to fall
i don´t wanna carry all the weight (alone)
if i could just glue your hands on mine
to hold a compass
that would guide me through the night


and if you wanna make it
if you wanna break out
i will turn the world
we gonna stay here untill the end of time
don´t wanna fall down like a raindrop after all


i cross the fingers and learn to fall
i don´t wanna carry all the weight (alone)
if i could just glue your hands on mine
to hold a compass
that would guide me through the night

and if you wanna make it
if you wanna break out
i would turn the world
we gonna stay here ´till the end of time
don´t wanna fall down like a raindrop after all

so can you give me shelter?
i don´t wanna wake up and see that all is gone
we wanna stay here untill the end of dawn
don´t wanna fall down like the raindrops after all
Track Name: Travel
keep your eyes
keep your eyes open
it ever starts
with a word strangely fall silent
keep your eyes open to this

keep your mind
keep your mind open when someone is top
give you monsters to eat
keep your mind
keep your mind open to this

and keep your heart
keep your heart open by traveling
wonders are waitin´ to happen soon
keep your heart open to this

dry your eyes
feel safe now in my arms again
feel safe back in my arms

keep your eyes
keep your eyes open
it ever starts
with a word strangely fall silent
keep your eyes open to this

keep your mind
keep your mind open when someone is top
give you monsters to eat
keep your mind
keep your mind open to this

so dry your eyes
there is no cloud in the sky
there is no cloud in the sky
so dry your eyes
feel safe now in my arms again
feel safe back in my arms
