The setting sun lights the sky In tides of purple / seasons dry Heartbeat rhythm Blinking eyes Always waking Waking up Lost horizon / Megacity 5 Pagan sacrifice Heartbeat rhythm Blinking eyes Always waking Waking up Little further close to you Ride on, tired, sleepless, too Heartbeat rhythm Blinking eyes Always waking Waking up Kids are building castles in the sand Taking over some more land Heartbeat rhythm Blinking eyes Always waking Waking up Rich man / suit and tie Poor man / homeless Both dream / both wake up All crave / always Always, always, always waking up Always, always, always waking up

Now that everything fades In loves and desires Life is a dream In between other dreams But no one is near now No one is here And I still hear your voice So I open my eyes I'm still in this dream Burned dot on a screen Excessive example Of human greed Perhaps we should rest How wrong can we be? Trespassing mind properties Exploring our needs Of bitter punishment On open wounds On scars of intention Of an amazing youth Killing all idols With magic and pins Defending minorities When adrenaline kicks No noise cancellation Applied on cut Communications With my inner God And I stand here exposed And it feels like I need you But my landline is dead By your fantasy bed

With a curious camera We're recording light Decode dark lattitudes In broad daylight We fall into line We dance as we fade Whispering poems In an endless parade A haze of chaos Our thoughts on the floor East of depression We're broadcasting from home We're all marked with symbols Carved on our skin Zeros and numbers and binary sins Controlling matter Knowing space Mastering vision Inventing games Our dreams like echoes Loop back to you Design the poetry Of an electric youth Controlling matter We're knowing space We play like children Once night embraced
5.
We come alive As the strong light of the day We come alive Like a neon halo We come alive Fodder to your beast We come alive Like the heathen rainbow We come alive Like a deathwish ride to you We come alive Like the change of seasons We come alive Like a massive dose of dreams We come alive But you're holding scissors

Aerial lineage Parading shapes The flag of the den flies As we all realise Sun / rise and fall / each day We're eternal children Of a fractal sky Betrayed by socialism And hangover insight Sun / rise and fall / each day If many yesterdays Were dark and heavy Today is drifting rays Keeping the grief away Sun / rise and fall / each day

Memories designed to fade Ears dripping sounds of grey Some more real than desire Echo will set us all on fire As the night is full of screams Words like moths beat on the screens All men born with wings that sing Mother Europe trapped in dreams Charming stories, open wounds The muted light of sacred woods One thousand years lost in a glance Midnight drifters of the boulevards Pulsing fragments, inner life Trading time for a smile Silent paths to healing scars Love will die amongst the brightest stars Tiny worlds of memories Whispers hanged on violins Some more real than desire Echo will set us all on fire Sing my verses of youthful crimes On breaking dawns with bitter suns In hidden places such as this Every rebel deserve a kiss So, keep your love for a rainy day When all the flowers will be thirsty again…

Now that clubbing days are over And all your friends are lost You're praying to the sirens Save you at any cost I'm sorry you're in pain now I'm sorry it was me That left you in a nightmare Of purple ecstasy Time is the fourth dimension That will ignore our needs A mess of blood and sorrow We are all on our knees Nothing is happening here The schools are empty now Once, how this was a kingdom Now it's a broken home Nothing is happening here It's getting pretty late... I'm praying to the sirens I'm seeing through your eyes Look at your glorious lifestyle Oh, how it falls apart!

about

Two years after the release of their promising homonymous debut and a few months after the 7inch-herald "Obscure", Mechanimal are back with their second album, titled "Secret Science".

"Secret Science" was recorded in the band’s studio in Athens during the winter and spring of 2014. Written and produced by Giannis Papaioannou, founder of the band, with a long history in the Greek post-punk and electronic scene. As a dynamic ensemble with vocalist Freddie Faulkenberry, Kostas Matiatos on electric guitars and Angelica Vrettou on the visuals, Mechanimal’s “Secret Science" speaks of the need for survival and recounts tales of a restless urban environment. Each track, as a lyric theatrical one-act, opens new avenues to the sonic palette of the band, where narrative aphorisms, analogue synthesizers, underground dub rhythmic passages and angry guitars compose the unique code of their "secret science". Ten drone 'n' roll stories from those you do not hear in the news, but rather discover in the streets of a city that stays awake by the sounds of sirens.

"Secret Science" is out on vinyl including bonus cd, cassette and digital album from Inner Ear.
