about

White Noise is an emotional commentary on the bullshit, political and personal, global and local, that we try to block out of psyche, but still manages to interfere with the clarity and perfect harmony we all wish to have in our lives.

This album is back to guitar, bass and drums with some sounds to filter through.

Track Name: Feed The Machine
Feed The Machine

It's getting hard to breathe in
I don't know what you're thinking
While the river runs bloody and the sky is fire
God's little children get a hell of a ride

Chorus
Feed the machine what is it for
Hide what is real what is it for

Blood like tears run down her face
Could be the end of the human race
Give me money for the things to get me by
When I'm down give me pills so that I can get high

Chorus
Beat of your heart what is it for
Beating so hard what is it for
Feed the Machine what is it for
Hide what is real what is it for

Do androids dream of electric sheep
Pray to the machine for their soul to keep
Cut all the wires
Shut the terminal down
Fire off your missiles and burn the fucking thing to the ground

There's a lie in the truth, but you need to think straight
They will talk you into silence
Give you demons to hate
It's a white noise buzzing in your ears til they bleed
A need against want
A want against need

Chorus
Feed the machine what is it for
Hide what is real what is it for
Beat of your heart what is it for
Beating so hard what is it for
Feed the Machine what is it for
Hide what is real what is it for
Track Name: You Don't Know How I Feel
You Don't Know How I Feel
(C) Erika Bach. All Rights Reserved


You don't know how I feel
You don't know how I feel
You don't know how I feel
When I hide in the corner of my room
You don't know how it hurts
It hurts oh it hurts
This is how I mess it up
Burn the skin until it blisters
Never learned to shut my mouth
Turn me on I'm your transistor

Choose love from a catalogue
Choose man from a picture on my wall
Nobody's going to get inside
Nobody's going to make me cry
Nobody's going to tear my heart out
Nobody's going to get inside
Nobody's going to make me cry
Nobody's going to tear my heart out
Not this time

Terramin and razor blades
Will I get what I want today
I don't want to go outside
Daylight blinds me sometimes
You don't know how I feel
You don't know how I feel
You don't know how I feel
You don't know how I feel

I'm alive
I'm alive
I'm alive
Track Name: Drowning Out The Noise
Drowning Out The Noise
(C) Erika Bach. All Rights Reserved


Where the wind blows I cannot follow
Where the river flows I cannot run
Will you give me something I can believe in
Money in the ocean
Poison in the sky

Chorus
I am not waiting
I am not fading
I am not listening
I am drowning out the noise

Willing and so blind
These are the moments
Hopeless electric buzzing in my head
Into the dreaming
Life could come to nothing more than a marker that we once were here

Chorus

Where the wind blows I cannot follow
Track Name: We Are Silent
We Are Silent

The same blood
The same pain
The same anger
The same shame
Where is the sun
Where is the moon
Where is my happy ending
Too soon we have the sign
No hope
No peace of mind

The rain pours down from the winter sky
A bullet shot into our bright side
Another child caught in the cross fire
Close your eyes
Close your eyes
Close your eyes

The same blood
The same pain

We are silent
We are silent
We are willingly in cages
We are liars
We are sinners
We are shattered at the core
We are mothers
We are fathers
We are children in the grass
We are right
We are wrong
We are chained and still feel free
The delusion and confusion of reality
We are silent
We are silent
We have lost our will to speak

Take control
Open up your mouth
Here it comes
Here it comes
Let the anger out
Here it comes

Close your eyes
Close your eyes
Close your eyes
Track Name: Girl With The Devil In Her Mouth
Girl With The Devil In Her Mouth
(C) Erika Bach. All Rights Reserved


My mouth open
This heart broken


Chorus
I am the girl with the devil in her mouth
Let all the sin
Let the fire
Let the feelings out
I am the girl with the devil in her head
You can't save me
You can't save me
I know I'm dead

White lies
Black skies
Bullets and missiles
Chocking inside me
Making my heart bleed

Chorus

Feel greed crawling under my skin
Vicious
Perfect
Human defect
Track Name: Thin Skin
Thin Skin
(C) Erika Bach. All Rights Reserved


Dirt under my skin
Letting dirt get right in
Paper thin
Thin skin
Into the cracks we fall
Give me a soft place to land
Will you listen when I call

Chorus
Thin skin

Glass into the vein
Will it hurt
Will there be pain
More or less
Than the broken promises
Heard you call on the wind
And salvation for your sin
Is this milk
Is this honey
That we're drowning in

Chorus

Liquid money sky
Is it raining
Is it raining blood this time
Feel the sting in your eyes
While they cash out all their lies
Twisted and torn
Hunted down since we were born

Chorus

Dirt under my skin
Letting dirt get right back in
Paper thin
Thin Skin

Dirt under my skin
Letting dirt get right back in
Paper thin
Thin Skin
Track Name: Ego Mansize
Ego Mansize
(C) Erika Bach. All Rights Reserved


Driving to hell with a busload
Busload of sinners
Ego mansize
Look into those eyes
Fine illusions sleeping in my bed
Wild delusions leading thoughts
Thoughts into my head

Liar liar
World on fire
We are bought
We are sold
We do what we have been told

Chorus
Ego mansize
Ego mansize
Power blisters between your thighs
Will you tell lies
Will you disguise
Truth with dollar signs

Standing on the edge of the world
The world that we made
These dreams will turn us into slaves
If it's not too late
Standing on the edge of the world
The world that we made
These dreams will turn us into slaves

Chorus
Track Name: Numb
Numb
(C) Erika Bach. All Rights Reserved


Numb
I feel numb
I woke up from this dream with the sky red
Like my anger
At you who makes all the rules
So wrong
So hard to swallow

Chorus
I am ready
And I am falling
I am ready to die young

Numb
I feel numb
Fractured by your decisions
Made without a human heart
Just a thermal spark
Radioactive

Chorus

Numb
I feel numb
Are you stone man
Twisting under thumb
Salt into the wound
Ghosts in the machine
There are changes
Changes coming

Chorus
Track Name: Kick If You Have To
Kick If You Have to
(C) Erika Bach. All Rights Reserved


Can you sleep with this blood on your hands
Wounds so deep
No heart
No clear conscience
God shot a missile into your innocence
Used fear as the gun aimed at your heads

Chorus
Don't let them break you
Kick if you have to
Don't let them shut you down before you say how it feels
Don't let them break you
Kick If you have to
Don't let them shut you down

Paralyzed by fear and consequence
Holding back the anger in defense
If I cry it's for what we have lost
Money is king
Money at any cost

Chorus

The thought police is circling round your bed
Keeping track of what's in your head
Too scared so you say what you have been fed

Chorus
Track Name: Revolution
Revolution
(C) Erika Bach. All Rights Reserved


Warning sign amplified
Change will not come from them in time
Tyranny
Apathy
Money god
Human greed
Tyranny
Apathy
Money god
Human greed

Chorus
What we need is a revolution

Where will it end
Dream on
Peace will not come away from the sun
Wonderland
Homeland
Holy Land
Dust and sand
Anarchy
Destiny
Dignity
Equality

Chorus

If we all say no
This is suicide
If we all say no
Shut down the lies
What's all the money for
With no air to breathe
It's a fantasy
What we really need is a revolution

Chorus
