Is underrated as an ideal
To work towards a goal
An ever shifting landscape
Games like those games we play
With hard and painful rules
To negotiate a truce
You need to know exactly where you stand

Dive into your arms
Agony and passion is all I know
The spirit strong and the body weak
These thoughts so sublime
Delicate and intricate
The detail is often lost by the time you speak

I once was an idealist, until I touched you
I'd never known pain, I'd never found love
I once was an idealist, until I breathed you in
I'd never found pain, I'd never known love

All in all this change that promised
So many opportunities
To love and to embrace

Put your hand in mine
I will lead you where you never thought you’d go
Where you never thought you’d dare to go

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.
