The box is a place of corporate greed and corruption, where buzz-words become weapons, where self-interest overrides the common goals, where souls are ground down into conformity, or are chewed up and spat out as emotional wrecks.

I survived to tell the tale, but the emotional scars are still there.



There an intimacy
In the distance you keep
Makes my every word feel so exposed
These are dangerous times
You use them and expose them
‘till they blind out the light

I’ll take you by the hand
‘till the money changes hands
Free up from your pre-conception
Language of interception

This tiny mind
Expands on a journey
Beyond hopes, fears, and expectation

Thinking outside the box
Out of the box
Into the box
Into smaller spaces
Wide open mind
But never mind
This box is nothing more than a box

I’ll lead you by the hand
‘till the money’s changed the land
Freedom from perspiration, languid and differentiation

This tiny mind
Expands on a journey
Beyond hopes, fears, and expectation

Crammed inside
A box too large
No stone unturned
Reveals a hole
Hole in the heart
Hole in the head
Home in the bed
Hole in your memory
Whole in my memory

I’ll think about your hands
And when the money blackens them
Free from contamination
Boxed up for my own protection

This tiny mind
Expands on a journey
Beyond hopes, fears, and expectation

We're just 5 ordinary guys (except one's a girl) from Brussels (except the Belgian) who like making music.

We've opened for For Against, Chameleons Vox, Red Zebra, The Breath of Life.

Critics have suggested a resemblance to Joy Division, Pere Ubu & Kitchens of Distinction.

We never set out to sound like anything or anyone. Just to reach out and touch your emotions.
