Given Chain Hanover, Germany

Als sich Given Chain im Jahr 2010 das erste mal trafen, war es ein vorsichtiges Beschnuppern. Keiner traute dem anderen und Skepsis lag in der Luft. Daran hat sich bis heute nichts geändert.
Alternative trifft auf mangelnde Kompromissbereitschaft. Das beschreibt auch so ziemlich die Musik der vier Jungs im alter von 4-99 Jahren. Es wird das gemacht, was muss und darüber hinaus noch viel mehr.

Track Name: NoNoah
We're all drowning
We're all drowning

The red lines on your arms tell me
how long you have been
under the sea
how your gasps for air
have remained unheard
while the water crashes in
from cracks in walls and from within

Can't see the sun from under the sea
can't feel it's heat – we are too deep
under the waves, under the currents, under the water that came over us
no ark, no savior, no god to whom we could repent.

Your anger shows us,
just how strong the pressure is.
And how you're tired
because you've tried
to push the salty water out of your lungs
the rain has pushed you down
'till into darkness you have sunk

Our skin got so wrinkled and salt took all color,
my fingers ache from swimming and my eyes turned blind in the abyss.

You ask me why my head seems so dry
for it was floating on the surface
I am just like you, I cry,
open another bottle and drink away the flood.
