It’s like time is visiting to take a part from me Just want to hold your wings, together we could flee Nothing to win, but so much to lose I feel nothing, but the almighty blues Oh dreambird, you were a loyal friend You showed me all your assets I saw the perfect one and now it is my plan To never let it go See my bird flying up to sky Never know if it comes home So many times it took me on its flights Now I’m alone Touching my own face to feel the satisfaction Emptiness surrounding me, where is your attraction? Searching in the ambience for this special olfaction It’s in my head and it’s not, there is no narration Oh dreambird, you were a loyal friend You showed me all your assets I saw the perfect one and now it is my plan To never let it go See my bird flying up to sky Never know if it comes home So many times it took me on its flights Now I’m alone I was used to fly high, but now I’m falling deep I’m begging you darling, please come back to me

Hey little shoeshine boy You’re feeling like a toy Of the mighty man who’s sitting shoe to face with you Materialistic people try to fool you with their cash But remember it is always a lie Try to attract you, don’t make a bow at their business bash They will live alone till they’ll die Raise your head and you will see them fail ‘cause you know exactly how they feel Poor souls with artificial smiles Their endless greed will cost them everything No matter how shiny their style Hey boy, ten bucks, go and get me a drink You’ll get five more, if you are back in a wink Don’t spill a drop or you have to lick it from the ground Look in his eyes – pride comes before a fall You boil with rage and grab him by the tie A clear idea – you won’t be longer his private doll Your pride is something, which he cannot buy Raise your head and you will see them fail ‘cause you know exactly how they feel Poor souls with artificial smiles Their endless greed will cost them everything No matter how shiny their style What's left of the life inside His eyes, vanished as he died The first breath of your freedom is your last It is a circle, your future is your past

Stand down from me The realm is on its knee You heard the story The humans stand no chance When we go we got nowhere to hide When we stay we couldn’t take up a fight We’re stuck at this fork of the road It’s the same old tale Where the evil prevail And the good don’t align with the rest The birds, they come They got something undone Act quick, don’t look back Before pigeons attack The circle has to be drawn of blood Three gemstones put into the mud The candles lit by the shine of the wil-o-wisp Rats of the sky They come for you And they cause the whole demise Of the human race we knew But the mammoths know what to do It ends today Life always finds a way They pierce them down, the heaven’s breaking up Spirits of the ancient beasts Let it rain ivory spears Hear me, only you can turn the faith Rats of the sky They come for you And they cause the whole demise Of the human race we knew But the mammoths know what to do Just when we thought that we were doomed The mammoths materialized All the pigeons turned into one pink mist So for years the crop was fertilized

about

We wrote these 3 songs over the course of the last year in between rehearsals and soundchecks in our living rooms and minds.
Lots of love went into making this record. Every sound you hear comes from us, we recorded, mixed and mastered everything on our own and grew a lot in the process.

Also, we were incredibly lucky to have the talented Parvin Jahanshad on board for the artwork. Please follow her at: www.instagram.com/parvinjahanshad

Hope you enjoy listening to High & Dry as much as we did creating it!

about

Apewards Marburg, Germany

APEWARDS (Marburg, Germany) exists between the worlds of stoner and blues-rock and on the bare edges of the psychedelic universe. Their puristic sound is reminiscent of the greats of that cosmos likes BLACK SABBATH, KADAVAR, RIVAL SONS and AUDIOSLAVE. Delicately they combine powerful riffing and distinctive songwriting to an explosive fusion. They released their next LP “WE THE LIVING” in 2019. ... more
