Brigitte Handley – Köln

Official music video 'Köln' per­formed by 'Brigitte Handley'.

Lyrics:

Twin spires, marble skies
Air is thick, Can we survive?
Verkehr, Verkehr in the space we share
Thoughts are quick in the mid­night air

Ride the U‑Bahn, immer schwarz
You can’t seem to escape your past
We pay the toll with our hearts
Life goes by, run­ning fast away, push it away…

Chequered floor, neon lights
Blue shells are in our sights
Sonic land­scapes all around
Searching for the underground
Dancing in a gil­ded cage
Three tiered levels of dark end rage
After mid­night we all meet
Ice cold nights on a smoky street

The past is over but it doesn’t go away
The past is over but it doesn’t go away

Showered in yel­low sun­light to cov­er up the guilt
Created to carry your bur­den, everything covered in silt
The river is get­ting lower, the truth is start­ing to show
The ship is slowly sink­ing but only time will know

High on my pro­jec­tions in an unreal world
Propelled by false inten­tions installed inside a girl
She tries to see the day in night, grey mat­ter that she can’t fight
She’s break­ing out! She’s break­ing out!

Away… away…

The past is over but it doesn’t go away
The past is over but it doesn’t go away

False illu­sions, your delusions
Wasted in my mind
Smothered in a silence
The truth just makes us blind

Re-pro­gram, stop the sys­tem, try to press ‘reboot’
Creating a dis­trac­tion, while oth­ers fol­low the suit
Well dis­guised Blitz cold Eis, slip, fall, open eyes…. vis­ions… decisions
Alone again in Cologne again… Alone again in Cologne again…

A safe place so hard to find
If only I’d escape my mind…

Ebertplatz 3am
A chance to begin again
Reinvent your intent
Nothing said is time well spent
Cars stop Venloer Straße, Fahrrad fahren faster faster
The Past is over…. away…

A chance to begin again, If only fear could be your friend
A safe place so hard to find, If only I’d escape my mind…
