about

THE MARCH, Pictures of the Sun. Pictures of the sun is a line in the chorus on Check On You, the album's first song. An album that happens in Berlin, with its gentrification and long winters. It's about troubled and misunderstood people, who have to rely on their survival senses against a sometimes abusive life. And there's love. But above all, Pictures of the Sun is a natural expression of life -the sun, nothing new under it, yet always comes up. Going down by the water, no matter what your day was like... and watch the world go by

Track Name: Check on you
Check on You
Minus eleven this morning
the feelings can always be much colder than this
I‘m walking along the canal
some people walk upon water

Minus eleven this morning
why is she not talking to me?
I‘ll go for a run along the canal
where some people have fun on ice

Minus eleven this morning
people don‘t want to be alone
got used to checking on you
so now no news is bad news

Chorus
I like taking pictures of the sun
I send them to my family
that‘s the way I have to say „Hi!“
this is how I say, - I‘m alright.

Post-Chorus
Check on you / Check on me

Minus eleven this morning
feelings can always be much colder than this
let us sit by the canal
and watch the world go by

Minus eleven this morning
it‘s not good that we should be alone
Take courage and don‘t be afraid
I‘ll make me a helper for you

Chorus
I like taking pictures of the sun
I send them to my family
that‘s the way I have to say „Hi!“
this is how I say, - I‘m alright
Track Name: Let it go
a deep voice from the radio says, „follow your dreams“
and I follow the beams of the lights in the sky
The transmission got interrupted for the announcement of a new life
the road ahead of me has no one that I can see

and I‘ve been thinking about it for a long very long time
I come back to the world it was a bad time for everyone
let it go let it go it‘s now all in the past
I walked from end to end don't ask me to go back

Why did you not let me alone in the first place?
Look at you, look at you! Who are you to protest me?
You gave me no chance, now wanna shake hands - I can‘t just turn it off.

I‘ll keep driving in the heavy rain
I just want to go home
Track Name: These Streets
THESE STREETS
It's been a long time
you disappeared without a trace
nothing looks the same
can't go back to the previous place
The streets have changed
you got new kids on the block
we now grew old /got held us in a lock

Pre-chorus
I don't like it now and I never did

Chorus
We don't like it now
We never did

My past was my best asset /and your future crop field
yesterday is dead /some wounds will never heal
Whatchoo gonna do now? /you wanna get rid of us?
your fucking someone new /I don't see the fuss

Pre-chorus
I don't like it now and I never did

Chorus
We don't like it now
We never did.
Track Name: Unkind Remarks
UNKIND REMARKS

You'd better stay out of my way
I gotta remove waste products
I don't wanna see you ever again
I knew you were trouble.

I had fond memories, but I'm too busy doin' things
in a world full of hate
where many died and many are broken

You'd...
it's so much better

I got no limits
while you need to hold a leash to be a lady
I'm an angry man who takes responsibility

You'd...

Kill all men!
You make no sense
Go away, drop dead. I don't care

I wanna be me, I wanna be free
I'll let you go
I gotta be me, I gotta be free
please, let me go
It's gotta be me it's gotta be Now
just go just go away
you wanna be free, do you?
Go just go just go
