    Lyrics

    THE HOUSE OF RAIN

    when agonizing pain chains --- the emptiness in my dreams --- behind blind windows --- I can listen to yesteryear´s voices --- joining in the clean tone of the raindrops --- when darkness yields my fragile mind --- inside firm walls I can feel --- the wash of the rainfall --- covering my tears --- and a new dawn is breaking --- the house of rain is keeping all of my days --- my suffering my pain --- the house of rain is waiting on my way --- while I´m running to find you

    DROWNED WORDS

    inside your world --- chained with self-doubt --- the noise of unease --- constantly screaming with closed lips --- outside hollow dreams --- trapped by weakness --- the voice of silence --- frequently paralysed --- release drowned words --- with tears unheard --- start collecting dropped fears --- feel when every heartbeat hurts

    WE ARE ONE

    you know me --- I trust you --- we are like brother and sister --- born in a world made of lovers --- we went to see --- one million trees --- thousands of flowers and rainbows along rivers of lust --- I taste blood on my tongue --- nobody could have foreseen that we are wrong --- it beggars belief --- we shouldn´t have done that --- we are walking through yesterdays --- we are passing our summer´s fault --- we are one - alone --- we are one and gone --- we are one

    SHOCK THERAPY

    your words to me a shock therapy --- how can I trust when you lie to me --- your smile to me a shock therapy --- how can I rejoice when you hurt me --- your touch to me a shock therapy --- how can I feel when I feel alone --- your love to me a shock therapy --- how can we love when we break our love

    AMPLIFIED DICHOTOMY

    we´re shaking our hands --- and break the contract --- we´re telling the truth --- and live our lies --- we´re crying out loud --- and sleep with dried tears --- we´re moving the mountains --- and we fall in the wind --- I hate you --- you love me --- amplified dichotomy --- I leave you --- you need me --- amplified dichotomy --- I kill you --- you save me --- amplified dichotomy

    SECOND HOME

    truth and lies when words collide --- and I poise in dusty light --- I know you´ll try to walk the line --- to follow my blurred state of mind --- whisper and cry immaterial tries --- wordless lost in a sallow sky --- shivers inside at the slightest touch --- I´m falling down and it hurts so much --- light my second home --- come with me --- light my second home --- my lonely home --- here I walk alone --- come with me --- light my second home --- my broken home --- where I don´t belong

    FROZEN LIGHT

    when we touch the frozen light --- can we trust the waterfall --- washing away the poems of lies --- dried in a sunny rainfall --- when my lips sweep laughing tears --- frames of lust are broken --- keeping my mind bright and clear --- all our words are spoken --- when we cross the streets tonight --- just another million miles --- on the pass for a second smile --- leading through the frozen light

    HAPPINESS

    words, tears, desire --- wounds, laugh and doubt --- when you and I broke up delight --- I´ve cemented ties --- now I won´t let you win --- never again --- now I can´t let you win --- I want you to know --- I can´t let you go --- and I want you to know --- someday you will know --- why you are my happiness --- we - you and I --- together alone --- can feel the change --- but I won´t let you win --- never again --- no, I can´t let you win --- I want you to know --- I can´t let you go --- and I want you to know --- today you will know --- why you are my happiness --- my happiness is you --- my happiness today --- my happiness with you --- my happiness is dead

    GO DOWN

    if you think you know --- it´s time to make some noise --- believe me when I say --- it is better to fall --- this is not a game --- start to end the show --- believe me when I say --- it is better to fall --- recognize the tears on your face --- go Down

    FAR FROM EDEN

    one step beside suicide --- the others call me sad --- I Can´t hear you calling my name --- I cover the world outside with a shell --- light around the blurred outlines --- I try to fade down lies --- addicted to the final word --- cries my sharpened sword --- all the truth unspoken --- like a smothered fire --- I feel a touch of tender hands --- like claws in my neck --- we´re far, so far from Eden --- the sun almost gone --- we´ll never come to even --- you and me

    84 out of 100. The House Of Rain is a richly detailed album with a polished production. Sevren Ni-arb crafted some nice melodies and wrote vulnerable lyrics, full of contradicting emotions.

    10 out of 10. You are searching for a frosty pounding EBM song? ´Second Home’ is the answer, but it is immediately cushioned by flowing, elegiac ´Frozen Light’. The anthemic ´Far From Eden’ is your song for singing along. It is the last piece with vocals and it takes to become an indie disco hit. The last song ´Asynchronous’ feels like a last stroll through a nocturnal rain… Conclusion: Varied and atmospheric electronic music that speaks to the head and abdomen.

    Each and every song on here is an individual, this isn’t the result of some assembly line; finely honed artistry is the order of the day on ´The House of Rain’... No skipping tracks, no snide dismissals; you will play this through to the bitter end or you just shouldn’t bother listening... These last two records they have made are beyond anything which could have been expected. Challenge yourself, X Marks The Pedwalk certainly have. More sleek electronic anthems for the grown-ups and thank god for that. Don’t ever stop.

    X-MARKS THE PEDWALK changieren erneut zwischen Tanzfläche und entspanntem Chill-Out ... die Rhythmen gehen in die Beine und der Sound bleibt trotz des breiten Synthesizer-Arsenals nicht kühl und unnahbar. Die Melodien und Sounds fußen wieder weit in der Geschichte der elektronischen Musik ... von der Anordnung der Instrumente und der Melodien bleibt das dynamische Duo etwas Eigenes. Das hymnische "Far From Eden" hat das Zeug zum Indie-Disco-Hit... Abwechslungsreiche und atmosphärische elektronische Musik, die Kopf und Bauch anspricht.

    I Die You Die | 04.2015

    Although Ni-Arb’s classical training always poked through in vintage Pedwalk’s more dramatic moments, on The House Of Rain these are directly coupled with his talent for studio polish and given as much room to roam through the tracks as can be given. The end result, at least from the listener’s perspective, is a sound which combines current high-gloss industrial soundscapes with perennial darkwave themes and motifs...

    Sonic Seducer | 03.2015

    THE HOUSE OF RAIN spielt mit Gegensätzen und Widersprüchen und scheut nicht vor einer gewissen Komplexität zurück. Gerade deshalb empfiehlt sich der Besuch. Am besten mehrfach und mit der Muße, tiefer in die Geheimnisse diese Klanggebäudes vorzudringen.

    Elektroskull | 03.2015

    ... rich atmospheric compositions with elements of ambient, modern ´smart’ electro and quite straight and danceable futurepop... The detail of the arrangement is outstanding and it’s just like I mentioned in the review of the last album it remains highly original and forward-thinking, innovative, beautiful, dreamy and very hard to beat.

    Side Line | 03.2015

    "The House Of Rain” sounds a bit like a sonic exorcism of different influences ... features a few potential hits and real masterpieces.
