about

KOALITION may be a wee surprise even for the hardcore fans of September 29th.
The Song Machine has taken a new direction: raw, straightforward, even more genuine than before.

"I wanted this album to be fresh and simple. To be heavenly lo-fi.
After four years of experimenting with sounds, I felt that I needed a break from "chaos". No more complicated post-production, no more incredible arrangements: I just wanted to record a bunch of songs that could plainly reach the listener, with no mind games, and could also be easily played live.
I guess I chose to go back to the start of my musical adventure, though with a renewed awareness. Sometimes you have to write and record 200 songs to finally feel that you're exactly where you wanted to be. And that's when your journey begins for real."

Don't miss the taste of real music.

Track Name: SW Solstice
now, i’ll turn round
and whisper something in your ear
purely randomly
just to prove i’m here
and i can forget fear.

and you’ll look at me
as if i had three eyes
and i’ll smile
just to prove that i am not blind
rain will taste like wine.

and you’ll tell a joke
for you’re the one
who makes fun of everything
to disguise how much of a geek you are
and i’ll pretend i am superman

so i turn around
and see my shadow on the ground
i’m alone
drenched to the marrow bone
this day is long
yes, the longest day of the year.
Track Name: I Used To Be Quite Good At This
i used to be quite good at this
took a few pills and eased the pain
always caught the last train home
i was the one
who knew how to have fun
building spaceships out of chewing-gum
in the rain
to go to the moon and back
and then back to the moon

but now i’m stuck
i’ve run out of crap
the crack in the wall
is calling my name
and i’m ashamed
i keep washing my face
in the hope that my reflection
in the mirror could change

i used to be so good at this
took a few sips and faced the crowd
always caught the last train home,
laughed out loud
i knew how to make fun
of everything and everyone
to go to the stars and back
and then back to the start

but now i’m stuck
i’ve run out of crap
the crack in the wall
is calling my name
and i’m ashamed
i keep washing my face
in the hope that my reflection
in the mirror could change
show me how i never pretended to be
the real me.
Track Name: Heaven Eavesdrops All Day Long
every time i walk out of here
and all i see are closed doors
i just hope that you are
somewhere behind those thick walls.

hush hush
we’re not alone
heaven eavesdrops all day long
why do i feel like a bomb
ready to be dropped?

every time i walk out of here
and all i see are closed doors
i just hope that you are hiding
somewhere behind those walls.

hush hush
we’re not alone
heaven eavesdrops all day long
why do i feel like a bomb
ready to be dropped?
Track Name: Simply Everywhere
all you got to do
is be true
and do what you can
sing the song we sang
feel the rhythm
and dance
and even if they say i’m dead
i tell you nothing’s changed
i couldn’t build a time machine
but i gave you this ring

i am here
i am there
i’m simply everywhere
i’m in the air
i’m in the ground
i am all around

so hold me tight
i’m the night
i’m the day
when you’re awake
i’m the mist
in your clenched fist
i’m your eyes
when you look at the sunrise.
Track Name: Don't Jump
bombs are falling
avoiding eye contact
with the ground.
the sound of empires
tigers leaping through
rings of fire.
it rings a bell, yea
and then the bell rings for you
it’s a high dive
ending in a concrete life.

don’t jump until you’re ready
to be dumped
to do a belly flop
the swimming pool is
full of cops
oops…

stars are hiding
pretending to go
home.
we’d better stop trying
we don’t make sense
at all.
it rings a bell, yea
and then the bell rings for you
it’s a high dive
ending in a concrete life.

don’t jump until you're ready
to be dumped
to do a belly flop
the swimming pool is
filled with cops
oops…
Track Name: Underdog
once again it’s summertime
once a game, now a real rite
drinking lime juice to get high
turning squares into ocean bays
eating dream-flavored ice-cream cakes.

it’s the age of parking lot holidays
surfing radio waves in july
hail to downtown t-shirt vibes
running down the halls of your old school
shouting music belongs to the underdog

your heart is a mosquito net
you feel safe now
that emotions cannot bite you anymore
love is gore, a scar that hitches
a tattoo that you won’t regret.
Track Name: All The White Dogs
all the white dogs
are starting to bark
they bite me
but i still love ’em
’cause i know
they’re scared by dark

and i see the dead stars
sail the sea of my heart
and how can it be
that they don’t come back to me?

all the wild rivers
go west when need some rest
and all the roads not taken
have traced a map on my chest

and i see the dead stars
sail the sea of my heart
and how can it be
that they don’t come back to me?
Track Name: The Pros & Cons Of Becoming Prom Queen & King
there’s nothing wrong
when nothing is right
and no one is weak
when we all pretend to be strong
so let’s go straight on
to the horizon
to the bone
let’s turn a cartwheel on the floor
and get real.

come on, won’t you take me
by the hand?
lead me now in a tearful dance.
no offense, but i need you
to get one more chance
at this nonsense
we all call love.

there’s nothing bad
when nothing is good
and no one is sad
when we all pretend to be glad
let’s just go straight on
to the horizon
to the bone
let’s turn a cartwheel on the floor
and get real.

come on, won’t you take me
by the hand?
lead me now in a tearful dance.
no offense, but i need you
to get one more chance
at this nonsense
we all call love.
Track Name: Yea
yea
i have been
afraid of almost everything
when people come
and people go
so easily
how could you know?

and yea
i spoke ’em words
and all i heard in return
was the echo of your sword
cutting through my flesh and bone

and it said
you are alone
but don’t say
you are alone
’cause when you say
you are alone
then you have to be
alone.
and we’re tired of mourning your loss
it seems like you wanna be sad
at any cost
and we admit it proudly
we then repeat it
we don’t understand you
we don’t even want to.
Track Name: The Letter
i wrote you a letter
but the live version of me
is always better
than the studio one.
and if you call me
and i don’t pick up the phone
just know that i
i’m always alone.

and in the twists and turns
of every song
between the bass line
and the lead guitar
you will perceive
a sweet melody
well, follow it
and you will find me.

and trust me when i say
i’m gonna be okay
whether you love me back
or go away
and never look back.

so go now
find yourself a town
to call your own
a place where you don’t
have to own a thing
to know that you belong
to something bigger than that
then turn the radio on
and know that i’m home, too.
Track Name: I Am Sad
i’m the blue bruise on your back
i’m this headache

sometimes
always
often
never
forever

i’m the street light turning red
i am sad

you say
you keep saying
i’m on my way
i’m not away
but i’m on my own

i’m the things you never had
the unsaid

i’m the ones you never met
half-smoked cigarette

i’m the deep scar on your leg
i’m this airbag

i’m the pills on your bed
i am sad

i am sad
