Old World is Gone

Let's all go outside now, a new spring has come

bullits teargas and rocks can't ever block the sun

the old machine is burning out,

and our hearts are young,

prison walls will fall and

forever be gone

because our love is strong

We're done with all the lying

this is the awakening

and we won't stop uprising

Pimping religion as a convenient threat

Divide and conquer but we won't fall for that

no more

you're killing our friends and try

to shift the blame

But you can't hide the fact it's your

greed causing deaths

Your system is failing and there will

be change

And there is no stopping that

Banksters can't hold to tyrants no more

you've got to stop robbing the people in financial wars

The old world is gone and we're here to stay...

Update on new tracks

Just in case you were wondering why I haven't been (live)updating my blogs and social accounts for a while: here's an update.

First of all I've been on a holiday in Germany for a few weeks. And second of all, besides attending my dayjob and living an offline life, I am currently working on some new tracks:

-Old world is gone (inspired by The Arab Spring, the American Awakening and the European Revolution of 2011). I expect to release this one in the next seven days or so.

-Magic (this one will contain the lyrics I've used in the track with the same title, which I've recorded both live and in the studio, with Propeller. The original version (when it comes to both title and lyrics) dates back to 1997 though, when it was nothing more than a simple campfire-song. The new Magic will sound very different from the Propeller-version.)

I still got a few more in the works, but those will take some more time..And at least one of them will be in Dutch.

Since Nothing To Hide I've been exploring the possibilities of homerecording in Linux. Being an absolute beginner when it comes to recording music, I've experienced a lot of challenges in the process, but nevertheless I'm having a lot of fun with Linux Mint, Ubuntu and the audio-applications that come with these superior OS's.

Therefore my new tracks will absolutely be Linux-proof! No more Windows, no Mac, just freedom!

In the mean time: have you purchased my first homerecorded demo yet? Only available until September 19th, so make sure you don't miss the opportunity ;-)

(And in addition, I 'll use the revenue to get some webspace of my own, in order to host my future planned wordpress-blogs)

I'll keep you posted!
