about

Four guys from the capital crossing the republic. For three voices, melody, shouting and bad-ass guitars are the frame those four create their dreams of. You have to live music for approaching things as Shearer do. Genius and madness coupled with megalomania, which is entitled such as for hardly any other band.

The audience will expect a big rock album with 'Eve', but it also gives the necessary breaks for breathing, independent, catchy and diverse. The limited EP 'Adam' improves that work with even more power, a soft core and a heartbreaking end. Here you can feel the bundled intensity of the Shearer live gigs.

The whole thing was recorded at Music Lab Studio, produced by none other than Harris Johns. Private Life was completely abolished for about three months, in order to invest any spark of energy and creativity into their opus. The hard work was paid off. With 'Eve' and 'Adam' Shearer have a trend-setting masterpiece, which doesn't need to be afraid of comparisons with greats such as Foo Fighters or Beatsteaks, neither in sound nor musically things.

As it's predecessor the new album will be downloadable for an arbitrary value (or even for free!) on the band's webpage and is available in any store. The EP is exclusively available on the homepage of afmusic for free, as payable download in any popular download-stores and further more as limited CD (500 pieces) on the Shearer-Homepage or at their shows. For collectots there is even a strictly limited Double-CD Edition called 'Paradise' (200 pieces, numbered) which contains both albums in a digipak.

Track Name: Change
Big me
stuck in a dead end
frozen in time
petrified in a lie I've told

myself
again and again I can
never change I
don't wanna, so fuck you
Right

Deadwood
where my lust for life
and my pride
should reside. My

Comedown
is coming down on me.
But a change is
never easy
No. Save my soul.

What I believe in is what I will see
What I believe in is going after me
What I believe in is bound to be

Big me
forever delayed
I'm forever too late
My mind sets my fate so

I can't get
my hands off the bottle
my ass out the rubble
'n I don't wanna, so fuck you
Right. Save my soul.

What I believe in is what I will see
What I believe in will come after me
What I believe in is bound to be
Track Name: Stay with Me
Hold me back when I
am on the edge
getting ready to drop
I don't wanna die
I don't really wanna die
Cause If I did
Then you wouldn't be with me

You give me strength to overcome
The weakness that's come over
Me I owe you
I owe you
I won't let you go
I need you

So where I go
Stay with me

Hold me back when I
am on the move
getting ready to hit on
April Luck. What a nice name to
have. We will be one.

Standing paralyzed
As you take control of body & soul
I let you in, let you in, let you in
I won't let you go

I need you all my life
You're helping me survive
Fear, my essential friend
We were one from the start
We're one till death us part
Fear, up until the end

Hold me back when one
One more step is all it takes
For me to get ahead
I'd really get ahead
But that tug 'o war leaves me being dragged

I need more strength to overcome
The weakness that's come over
Me I own you, I own you
I could own you if I'd just let go
So where I go

We were one from the start
We're one till death us part
Fear, up until the end
I am yours to own
I'll do what you condone
Fear, bittersweet, my friend
Track Name: Bring Me Down
I am in your arms
You keep me safe and sound
It's trust I put in you
You will not let me down

No need to be afraid
No one can bring me down
if they are after me, you'll know,
you'll be around to...

And then the walls cave in
And the knife comes down
And the watchful eye
It don't make no sound
As the blade sinks in
And you hit the ground
And your death begins

Father keep me safe
Keep the bad ones out
They do not belong
They try to bring me down

You know who they are
So keep me safe and sound
I put my trust in you
I know you will not let me...

And then the eye sinks in
It knows you inside out
And the walls resist
Being broken down
And you realize
There is no way out
And you hit the ground
Track Name: Can't Stop It
i'm sorry for this first line
it has no meaning but it is a rhyme
i'm sorry for this whole idea
I'm sorry for being here not there

But hey, i can't stop it anyway ...

I'm sorry for the greenhouseeffect
I'm sorry for the jap's whale contract
I'm sorry for each killed elephant
I'm sorry for not kickin Cheney's bum

But hey, i can't stop it anyway ...

I'm sorry for each terrorist
I'm sorry for your broken fist
I'm sorry for being such a fool
I'm sorry that i've been so cruel
Track Name: Ordinary Girl
you woke up and watched the start
they gonna get ya!
promises you won't dismiss
they gonna get ya!
sounds so bitter sweet

made your ways into their days
they gonna let ya!
innocence will make new friends
they gonna let ya!
singing a melody

this is the new world
of ordinary girls
and masturbating men
in a simple plan
beautiful and young
successful and so strong
in order to be done

once it's done they're havin' fun
you're gonna let them
you're the clown, wearing a crown
they gave to ya!
a king of modern needs

sounds so bitter sweet
calling you a sheep
givin' you a name
to cram you in a plan
singing a melody
helps you to feel free
so lonesome in your heart
need a desperate start
a king of modern needs
a slave of modern deeds
Track Name: 69
I am 69 percent
I want you to see, yea
Don't you know it's the bomb's turn now
to be dropping on me

Awaken your forlorn eye
Wake up to the view
There's a bomb closing in right now
And I know what to do

Hail You
the orchestrator
adulterator
the arrogator

I will be your guiding light
I want you to see, yea
My fire will burn tonite
the bomb's dropping on me
Track Name: Consequence of Dawn
say you are king
say you lead us on
say you know
the Consequence of dawn

i say lead the poor
feed us don't use us as a lure

so tell me what is the consequence of dawn

say you are king
say you need control
say you're broke, say you've lost it all
Track Name: The Man Song
There's too much good looks out there
Ten lifetimes ain't enough, oh no
An abundance, it don't make no sense to fear or be tense
All I am is free, two, three, four

So I won't kiss your ass, all right
I won't hand in myself to you
For affection, love, an erection, a kiss or a fuck
You can't take me away from me

And when I stay this way
You'll never go away
And when I bust your balls you will love

Welcome to my reality
Welcome to the show
In my barn there's a man for say like just about every thousand hens
And one of them rare men is me
Track Name: Clay
A man's hand, a hand that kills
Pushes buttons and delivers ills
A man's heart, a heart that beats
Every time it gets a hold of weed

A man's eyes, eyes so blind
He cannot see, he doesn't mind
A man's lips, lips that lie
yea the lie is the last to die

Go on digging your own grave
You don't need help, you need release
Fade to dust, arise again
I will shape you from this clay

Image hands, hands to touch
They do no harm, they know no such
And a heart, not a mess
There is nothing to confess

Keen eyes, eyes like fire
They do not pierce but they admire
Soft lips like a kiss
My love will lead you to bliss
Track Name: Cause I Feel
My mind is gone
I feel at home
Your love goes straight down to my bone
Whatever's right
my heart is pure
I do not feel unsure

You're in my head
You are my meds
You fill the void that I detest
You are the one
you tear my
heart, my flesh, my life apart
oh love!

You draw me in
and suck me down
You are on top, I'm on the ground
I am at rest
Out of my head
I've never felt so blessed

Don't wake me up
I'm in too deep
I can't believe I'm not asleep
I'm wide awake
and longing
You are drugs and peace and lust and love

Is what I need
On your hands I feed
You make me believe
You can make me bleed

Cause I feel
the wall caving in
the latch snapping in
the pleasure sinking in
elation settling

My mind is gone
I feel at home
Your love goes straight down to my bone
Whatever's right
my heart is pure
I do not feel unsure

You're in my head
You are my meds
You fill the void that I detest
You are the one
you tear my
heart, my flesh, my life apart

oh you are what I need
On your hands I feed
You make me believe
You can make me bleed
Track Name: Wussy
I am Mars, I orbit you
I Don't know why - It's what I do
All my blood flows into you
I carry you

It's obvious we're meant to be
Let me live in your reality
With you I'll never disagree

Life is hard when I'm in love
Love is cruel to me

See me down here on my knees
Giving you reasons to love me PLEASE
All my life depends on thee
Track Name: Is It You
Lay down your story
Lay down that story of mine
Don't let it vanish
Don't let it wither and die

From you I flow
From you I rise
Don't let it end
With empty eyes

Lay down your passion
Lay down what made you alive
Lay down what drove you
Let me get to know you right

From you I flow
From you I rise
Don't break the chain
In good time you'll die

Is it you inside my head
Is it you I feel
Is it you inside my heart
Is it you I feel here

Lay down the fire
Lay down the hurt inside your eyes
Lay down your purpose
Let me see into who I am

Is it you inside my head
Is it you I feel
Is it you inside my heart
Is it you

Is it you under my skin
Is it you I feel
Is it you inside my smile
Is it you I feel here
Track Name: Run Enemy
i've tasted fruit, forbidden you
i'm lost in love, entwined around you

don't walk into, don't run into
wild medicines will fly us trough
run enemy, we're comin' true

being near to you, getting lost in you
i cannot ever get enough of you

and it feels like there is no one left
when we break into the hidden chest
when i left you like a tender bloom
my heart gets weak and i loose control

the outer space, or just this place
can't capture some, or a hint of your grace

and it feels like there is no one left
when we break into the hidden chest
when i left you like a tender bloom
my heart gets weak and i loose control
and i feel your flesh and i smell the air
i unbolt my heart to let you share
i am ready to dissolve into you
