q-box München, Germany

Rock and Roll is Dead …
the rebellion that once was, is tainted by money and caught in the clutches of the industry.
q-box, who grew up in this dystopian music scene, are scraping for its living remains. The fourpiece is not trying to reinvent the wheel. They are merely restoring its drive with the love for music and all the rage against what has become of it.
…long lives Death n Roll

Track Name: Black Orleans
B l a c k O r l e a n s

On the streets – there I roam – I seek you
like a flood that hits the shore
when you cry / when you bleed / when you see
I grab your remains and make you believe

So I know / what you want / what you need
the missing fragment to the heart that can t beat
If you can – let things go – we can strum
Listen to: The Greatest of the deceivers

I M BORN AND RAISED TO DANCE ON YOUR SOUL
SOME I GAVE SHELTER, SOME I TOOK AWAY THE HOPE

I am your demon, I am your soul
I am your Jesus to me you ll crawl
RELEASE THE BODY A REQUIEM IS ALL YOU NEED
PIECE BY PIECE YOU RE LOST, WELCOME TO BLACK ORLEANS

Now you speak – the same tongue – they re all in
singing the blues every night and day
as they cry – as they bleed – for much more
Kind and drunken-hearted they will sing

I M BORN AND RAISED TO DANCE ON YOUR SOUL
SOME I GAVE SHELTER, SOME I TOOK AWAY THE HOPE

I am your demon, I am your soul
I am your Jesus to me you ll crawl
RELEASE THE BODY A REQUIEM IS ALL YOU NEED
PIECE BY PIECE YOU RE LOST, WELCOME TO BLACK ORLEANS

I am your demon, I am your soul
I am your Jesus to me you ll crawl
Leave all your fear and follow me
I your new god that sets you damn free

RELEASE THE BODY A REQUIEM IS ALL YOU NEED
PIECE BY PIECE YOU RE LOST, WELCOME I M BLACK ORLEANS,
I M BLACK ORLEANS / I M BLACK ORLEANS
I M BLACK ORLEANS / I M BLACK ORLEANS
Track Name: The Blade
The Blade

When the dust settles down – all is lost never found
Not the new guy in town – no more bitchin’ around
You pick up the pieces that were shattered to the bone

When the sun setting down – in booze & sorrow I drown
On your grave I passed out – thoughts keep spinning around
It is all fucking useless when you re name is carved in stone


I cannot run away,
she gave her love straight from her grave
Sick and tired of the games we play
the book, the gun, the chrome, the blade

When the moon´s crumbling down – and the smile turns to frown
Dancing demons unbound – my mind is ‘stained by the sound
Now all that I need is shot to be reborn

I cannot run away,
she gave her love straight from her grave
Sick and tired of the games we play
the book, the gun, the chrome, the blade

I cannot run away,
she gave her love straight from her grave
Sick and tired of the games we play
the book, the gun, the chrome, the blade
Can t fall or bear the weight that keeps on loading on me everyday
I cannot breathe or aggravate,
the book, the gun, the chrome, the blade
Track Name: Awkward Bloom
Awkward Bloom

RUSH
Tear it down the deception you know you cannot escape
MADNESS
No one believes you, the endless guilt that keeps on burning

To this place I will belong to this place

PLEASURE
Sucks your life for two and lets you die alone
SLEEP
On your grave there is no better place than the last rest

To this place I will belong to this place

In Six Feet Lies every Redemption
I woke up in awkward bloom tonite

Bring this hell, bring it all to you
In this cell, I m in awe and true

SICKNESS
lives in me for a long forgotten oh so punished time
SHADOWS
behind my face make me feel so fucking lonely

In this tides I m free to speak in these tides

In Six Feet Lies every Redemption
I woke up in awkward bloom tonite
In Six Feet Lies every Redemption
So shake all your demons I see you all in hell

Welcome to your own death
Last time to die in life

Welcome to your own death
Last time to die in life
Track Name: Burial
BURIAL
Now I am lying here this must be six (6) six feet under where I used to be
these fucking Feelings are shifting my head, trapped in between, happiness and fury
I....I am diggin too long
I....need to be sure that I m gone
I....have seen death before
I....am with dead and gone
BURIAL – I m sleeping alone
BURIAL – there s nothing left when I m gone
DEAD AGAIN – the shit comes up to the bone
BURIAL – hell is the place to call home OH YEAH
A lot of things in mind, a little smile in your eye, the little things that can hurt me
When I am digging my one grave (I know) this is the end...this must be the end
I....I am diggin too long
I....need to be sure that I m gone
I....have seen death before
I....m with dead and gone
BURIAL – I m sleeping alone
BURIAL – there s nothing left when I m gone
DEAD AGAIN – the shit comes up to the bone
BURIAL – hell is the place to call home (2x)
...to call home, to call home, to call home
Burial...Burial...Burial...Burial
Track Name: Burn
BURN

Looking at this angry road / Noone screams for overload
Punish me on this slane ride / Hell will be my friend tonight

Filling holes with gasoline / to burn out the ugly skin
Evil trust I will follow you / this cold war I m going through

BURN, BURN
BURN … Burn your hell for me, BURN… Burn your death in me
BURN … Burn your hell for me, BURN… Burn your death come on

Blackest eye is watching you / this bloody noise is total(ly) new
Save your soul out of all fears / to slave your mind with thousand tears

BURN … Burn your hell for me, BURN… Burn your death in me
BURN … Burn your hell for me, BURN… Burn your death come on
BURN, BURN, BURN, BURN

Pity for the lost embrace / ignore to feel strange kind of hate
Last remain is the death breath / The bones will rest in devils ash
Track Name: Sleeping God
Sleeping God

This life could be so blue so purple, pink and black
Release the beast, fuck all your aunts or burn in hell
Smash all this silly goddamn brain bondage

Accomplish the last 1000 years
Nobody missed you / but now you re here
Let s break the rules made from the ancestor

This god killed weak and raped the youth
Feels glorious… when they SCREAM
Part of me wanna kill wanna die wanna be
save this one from past memories

Oh sleeping god are you in the mood for ACTION?
Welcome in hell and take a seat the devils spell is all you need
I killed you once I killed you twice you howl REDEMPTION!
Your sky is closed deaf in the hall, get on your knees begin to crawl

You punished everyone / you re getting back,
the unbearable / IN JUST ICE
blackmail has stopped / good and bad
made them equal / you said no

Now you gonna be so loaded from this gun
took away virginity from your nuns
will bring the final curtain
pretending kindness is complete

Oh sleeping god are you in the mood for ACTION?
Welcome in hell and take a seat the devils spell is all you need
I killed you once I killed you twice you howl REDEMPTION!
Your sky is closed deaf in the hall, get on your knees and begin to crawl

Oh sleeping God have you been numb
look at this barrel of my gun
the shot in mind just feels so sane
the balance is back … again

Oh sleeping god are you in the mood for ACTION?
Welcome in hell and take a seat the devils spell is all you need
I killed you once I killed you twice you howl REDEMPTION!
Your sky is closed deaf in the hall, get on your knees and begin to crawl
Track Name: The Trip
The Trip

Death and Anger, all together tears your interests in life
No more thoughts about living just a fuzz that pushes you away

The sad man’s tongue is speaking for years they say
Punished from impressions of a weirdo world
That has no heart for a disturbed mind
Livin' on speed is what keeps it rolling

Hushing a slow glimpse to be relaxed or distracted

Don t bore me
Don t save me
Don t hate me for what I ve done
Don t bore me
Don t love me
Don t see me the way I do

Sorry for lost love, lost friends, lost life
But the seconds are too furious to care about
Just collapsed into the next episode (next episode)
No time for joy no time no time no time no no no

I Need help but don t let it in, Like a wound that is open

Don t bore me
Don t save me
Don t hate me for what I ve done
Don t bore me
Don t love me
Don t see me the way I see

Don t bore me
Don t save me
Don t hate me for what I ve done
Track Name: Snake Coffin (alt. Version)
Snake coffin

Bleeding in a coffin that burns
life becomes death this hell has turned
Your life into the worst sickness
Let me show you this madness

I need someone to cut my throat
Bow down my head and push reload
Since all these last wasted years
That fucked me up with all your tears

Thousand snakes that will bite into my veins and ignite
Dreams all night to come real so there is no way to feel
On a bed that will burn suck all the promise and turn
Into the humanized gods, that kill away all your love

Welcome my skinny horrible friend
I m close to you, give me your hand
Kill all your thoughts 'n' become insane
The same old game begins again
again & again

Thousand snakes that will bite into my veins and ignite
Dreams all night to come real so there is no way to feel
On a bed that will burn suck all the promise and turn
Into the humanized gods, that kill away all your love

I see you pushing life away
There can t be any reason to stay
So give me these seconds alone
To prove that I am on my own
Track Name: Psychotic Girls
Psychotic Girls

Join the Jekyll and the Hyde or move the fuck out of
my way. When you tell me that it hurts
No I cannot trust, no I cannot trust, no I cannot trust you
(You) want to Disarm me to feel better

Every word is a lie in the candle lightning sky
[and] is some sort of a fucking last goodbye
When she finally cries, finally cries till herself damn high
is shit blown fux and fake cries

Psychotic girls you drive me nuts i tried to understand you
But there isn t any word that would make sense
Come closer, take my hand, and push it
Tears fall down, on your hands … CRY!!!

Will you tell me your truth, you tactical truth your goddamn truth?
Some bitches understand and they got a proof
And no one of them, no one of them is just scared of this
but you are just psychotic girls  Chorus

LIE AWAKE, LURKING IN THE SHADOWS.
TRAPPED IN THE SMELL OF YOUR FUCKING CUNT.
SHOW ME COLOURS, DOWN BY THE MEADOW
AND SPREAD YOUR LEGS LET ME GIVE IT TO YOU BLUNT

Psychotic girls you drive me nuts i tried to understand you
But there isn t any word that would make sense would make sense to me
In my eyes (in my eyes) you are a nice waste of time
So close to scum (so close to scum) but sometimes beautiful
It d be too easy to say / I really love you
But the diamond way is to perpetuate my hate “PSYCHOTIC GIRLS”
Track Name: The Fame
The Fame

SICK of all that bullshit that was told, do you believe in nothing ?
Do not believe, do not deceive And fake this goddamn reality
play the death roll all o´(ver) sucker - proud in suicide and go well
PRAY to all your gods that left you behind
down in the dirt of your damaged mind
they re always laughing about that craziest things that were said into the sky
all hope is gone this moment – you re damned in sickness in the sky
CAN SEE YOUR FAME, CAN FEEL YOU RE HOLLOW; I AM NOT THE SAVIOUR
ON TOP IT FEELS SO GODDAMN FINE; THIS RISE WILL END IN DOWNFALL
NOW YOU WILL SEE RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW, I WILL NOT FOLLOW YOU
YOU RE MIND WILL BLEED YOUR FACE WILL BURN SO THIS IS GOODBYE NOW
Release me / for taking / off this shelter from you
i will / see you / reanimating your gain
Everyday / I feel your screaming on my soul
While your heart burned, while your heart has turned into something new
CAN SEE YOUR FAME, CAN FEEL YOU RE HOLLOW; I AM NOT THE SAVIOUR
ON TOP IT FEELS SO GODDAMN FINE; THIS RISE WILL END IN DOWNFALL
NOW YOU WILL SEE RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW, I WILL NOT FOLLOW YOU - yeah
YOU RE MIND WILL BLEED YOUR FACE WILL BURN SO THIS IS GOODBYE NOW
