I have no need for your silence, But you cannot change me with words. What I have now does not suit me - It cannot bring me my dreams. Don’t watch me now - I won’t miss you. I’m looking forward to life. Try to imagine my future, With nothing holding me down. Taking what cannot be given. Time to let go of this life. No way of knowing what’s coming. Whatever will come I will take. Living impossible dreams, But you cannot find a place in your mind for me Living impossible dreams. Just having a life is not good enough for me. This is the life I have chosen. I know there’s no turning back. There’s not much chance that I’ll make it, But if I stayed here I would die. You’re not expected to follow. I know this dream is just mine. Living impossible dreams, But you cannot find a place in your mind for me Living impossible dreams. Just having a life is not good enough for me.
Welcome to the Break Beat Underground-we hope you'll like the sound. If you don't care to know what it's like, then take a hike. We got a new direction in music technology, and sonic psychology, as well as it oughta be. With a lo-fi electro-rocking underground sound, it's no wonder we'll never be found. We can take it to the world, or let it unfurl, or give it to the legions of lawyers and corporate labels backing all of the million-dollar players and takers-awayers with the whole world on the outside, all looking inside. Got to know that the heroes of this story ain't sound in our thoughts (we're banking naught). Thus we're keeping up as well as we can to be the man. While lately we've been trying to grab the slice of life that's given in the limelight - mouthing out pieces of mind, and always in time, by design. But nevertheless, we look at the rest, and think that we're coming out trump above all of this musical junk. Welcome to the Break Beat Underground - in here the future is now. We open up the doors to explore this indie sound. This musical scene, it ain't no dream. We're getting tired of this anti-genre-crossing and dropping of famous nom-de-plumes that feature the remixes by the P Daddy Diddys of the Benjamin music world. Never seeing what's been advertised, to pairs of eyes, is like living with a lock on your mind. It's no wonder that the sole sound is always around - it's pounded until it's dead in the ground. Welcome to the Break Beat Underground - where the time is right. Once you hear us you'll stay and groove 'till the dawn of light. They live musical lies that you seem to take as real. You don't think for yourself, you take from the shelves of fashion and famine. You're looting and grabbing whenever someone you see, on TV, tells you who to be. We're Boulder Style Makers, movers and shakers. We're making a statement every mile for mile. When we pick up a groove, or change a tune, suddenly everyone who's no one is doing it too. Welcome to the Break Beat Underground-know that there's nothing to fear. Leave your posers and players home, they're not welcome here. Welcome to the Break Beat Underground - this party lasts until dawn. Come back whenever you want to, baby, we're always on.
Tell me no, let me go. Be with me, set me free. In this world, I believe, a silent change waits here for me. Listen close to hear the sound of silence filling up what's all around. Stillness wherever I go, the silent air is all I know. Lying here, I close my eyes. I'm thinking nothing, passing time. Giving in to thoughtful bliss, I'm drifting in and out of consciousness. Dreaming of lives I can lead, I'm more content than I can be. Giving up on all my plans, I've grown apart from who I am. Moving on, and letting go, accept the fact that I am all alone. Now that I'm off on my own, I'll take a chance I've never known. Looking back along the way, I'm saddened by how long I've stayed. It took awhile, but now I see, what I am, and what I'll never be. Someday I might realize, I'm losing time, and wasting life. No one's around, and changes can be found. Since nothing is here, change may be near. No one's my friend, so change will never end. No one will see - change will set me free. Changing lives, and changing ways, is how I live from day to day. Who I was is nowhere near, but where I am is always what I fear. You think you see in my mind, I'm changing just to pass the time. Packing up without a trace, I'm off to live another place. I'll arrive, I'll settle down, but I'll move on if no one can be found. I can't escape what I'm like, but I can try until I die. No one's around, and changes can be found. Since nothing is here, change may be near. No one's my friend, so change will never end. No one will see - change will set me free.
