lyrics

My friends are getting jobs
I was not meant to do
ambition's their condition
that's what they've been told,
the state locked up the door
the burocracy threw away the key
frustration did the rest, along with TV

Elsewhere,
(they) put a fence on the borders
persuade me to let in
where the job is at hand
and the wellness out of reach
you can call it American nightmare
or just European dream
you’d better keep your eyes wide open
in the city that never sleeps

in the land of no return
everywhere I go

'Independence' is the bone
they let you keep
once you've been a good dog
working all the time, for free
there's no exception, nor satisfaction, headway or thrill
in the land of opportunities for all
the starving man gets killed

in the land of no return
everywhere I go

I deleted from my bones
every number and name
waitin'to melt myself into
thousand different shapes, again
I sent all my beliefs to hell
soon I'll follow them too
all the rest I got
I owe it all to you
in the land of no return

about

Caboose Berlin, Germany

the smell of stagnant rust, the coolness of freshly cut grass, the sent of food getting cold on the windowsill, subtle wind shear at sunset that blows away the last moments of a summery day...That's Caboose, with a distinctive bucolic, raw sound that wrap around the air and recalls still summer evenings interrupted by tribal dances and voodoo rituals ... more
