The title „Brooklyn, I AM“ does not express our love for a certain city, but rather a metaphor for the ups and downs of life. So it was very important for us to give this record a more rough and organic sound and lyrics. It took us two years to write these 12 songs. We are surprised by the result, as there is an enormous difference to our previous material.

You are proud of you’re own nation though the credit is not yours you’re defending your own culture though you haven’t seen the world you are civilized and honest hating faggots women blacks you are the kind of people that makes the world suck so bad does it ever make a difference when your words are never making sense building up on every lie you want to make yourself believe does it ever make a difference when you’re talking just for self-defence better get another beer to wash down all your stupid talk you say you will fight for freedom freedom means your point of view your identity’s in danger just because some people do disagree with your opinion you just want to make the world a better place for freedom so what did you expect of me crossing with reality even though people grow they don’t know where else to go did they felt the penalties contradicting victories promises i never kept once been told now to forget.

Walking through ruins of pastime no one remembers this is a call it will remind you where we will go through all is new no place for pastime lost in the attic no time at all looking behind you where we will go through setting up from a part where we won’t let go i am searching for words and i’ll let you know we will never forget all the sleepless nights this is all for you we catch up at least we try cause we are forced to this is a call it will remind you nobody’s waiting step by step things get dusty when you forget them when you forget them no time at all living tomorrow when you forget them when you forget them.
Track Name: Universe
Our hearts don’t feel the same but there’s no one to blame so i won’t go somehow we should carry on there’s nothing left to say but you want me to stay so i won’t go somehow we should carry on faster with the speed of light we’re losing our direction no plans nothing to achieve we’re aimless like a satellite do you want me to shut up no as long we’re staying silent we have no clue so better have the courage start to talk to me talk to you let it go i know there were many times we had something in common disagreements always stepped in but this is something different like a planet in a universe there is nothing that will throw us off the course there is nothing that will cause me to fall out with you for sure it’s not that easy it’s not that simple but it is worth the pain still i cannot stop to think i cannot go to sleep i feel attracted gravitated i turn back to you.
