004: Ghost Cat / Always Wanted War – Split 7″ (a retrospect)

Always Wanted War had been on my radar long before releasing this Split, because they came over to play in Würzburg and were helping my old band with their label Tief in Marcellos Schuld. This Split is a great example of Marcellos releases, since it was mainly them handling the fabrication of this record, including the drawing, design of the packaging and organizing the screenprinting and laser cutting of the covers. Ghost Cat on the other hand I was listening to and liked them a lot, but didn’t expect releasing a record of them, so this was a really great surprise and it was beautiful to meet them on their joint tour shortly after.

Track List with Lyrics:

Ghost Cat – These fragile Moments:
If I could snap out of it and notice
when I’m not there and in some far off place,
thinking of things that shouldn’t matter,
hating my life away…
But I don’t notice
these fragile moments before they’re gone.
Broken in time by each passing second.
I didn’t notice you, I wasn’t paying attention.
I didn’t see the way you smiled or the halo on your skin
as the sun poured in through the window every morning…
before I opened my eyes…
Before I opened my eyes…
If I only knew…
I’d have given your love a different life.
I’d have seen the sun in a different life.
As it turned us to angels.
If I could change one thing I’d see no difference between anything.

Ghost Cat – A place to go:
Paper cut up moonlight and trembling hands,
your face half in shadow just talking to friends.
Your distance affects me, not making demands.
In the stillness and silence you try to make a stand.
But you’re not even listening,
you’re not even listening
You aren’t even listening,
you aren’t even listening.
You better listen to me,
you better listen to me…
When I’m speaking to you
when I’m speaking to you!
But I don’t know if I wanna go,
cause I don’t know if I have somewhere to go…
Holy guilt kill my heartache.
You better stay home tonight, you better tell me you’re fine.
Burn me alive, save me!
You better tell me you’re fine, you better stay home tonight.
Distant memories in pictures above your bed.
You were once in love, now his hands hold your mouth shut
cause you always scream when you’re afraid.
But you’re always, always afraid…
Have you had enough to lose it all?

Always wanted War – Action – Intention:
The time goes by, Ii saw a dream I had to chase it
amnesia takes place when it’s affecting life
the purpose of our minds lost in translation, can we handle that,
can we get over it again
I don’t wanna look back, I don’t wanna look back
it’s still hard to see inside when action differs from intention
(are two seperate things)
I don’t wanna look back, I don’t wanna look back
now I wish I could explain why we would hurt another again
why we would hurt another again

Always wanted War – Back to Subzero:
Spent the Days with running away
growing up was our first mistake
taking action never meant the same again
as time goes by we cast the plans aside
try, fail, try in this game of life
it all comes back but won’t be the same again
look out, this time you’re really dead
once followed through all issues, but always led
you thought you’d rise above it all
Back to subzero, they wanna see you rise and fall
Spent the Days with running away
growing up was our first mistake
taking action never meant the same again
as time goes by we cast the plans aside
try, fail, try in this game of life
it all comes back but won’t be the same again
