about

"The Mirror Cage", the next step after the Debut "Remote". Mastermind Nico was inspired by all his experiences after releasing the first album with Midnight Resistance. He always wanted to have a different live sound. This is what took influence on his songwriting. The new album connects the wave-roots of his style with modern electronic soundscapes, melancholic guitar-themes and catchy melodies. "Deadlock means death", that´s Nico´s device and on this album you hear that transporting the electronic sound of "Remote" into the next era was the right decision. "The Mirror Cage" offers a diversified trip and a dreamy journey charged with a bunch of guest musician you might know.

Track Name: Marble Index
I lit up, Exploding into maddening sparks, I ́m a fire, You ́re just ash,
You ́re are a forbidden fruit, That I am not allowed to touch, I am burning, And you are just too much,
All rules reversed, In this everlasting game, All rules reversed,
If I could change, This damned roles we have to play, I am stone, You are only dust,
I can ́t stand, Against these walls staring at me, Coffin nails, Piercing my eyes,
All things we lost, In this world so insecure, All things we lost,
Empty faces, Crawling into the dead night, Empty ways for us, We turn the time...
Track Name: Wastelands
Just a wasteland, Do you ever feel the rain, Pouring down, Wash this world away, Drowning to a better place,
A colored sky, A kingdom out of reach, Wondering why, we ever got this blind, Where are we now? Where are you now?
Ghosts of the past, Leave their footprints in the sand, Vanish and loose their breath, An echo in timeless motion, They follow you,
And our time will be endless, (far away from home) Against the tides, if you rely on me No journey beyond, will be worthless, (far away) We will meet on the waves,
In another place,
Where the desert begins, But your heart won ́t end, A carved reminiscence, Of what have been,
All things you ́ve had to see,
Bringing you down Down on your knees, With you your eyes to the sky, Your head turns to dust, Worlds collide, Worlds torn apart, Worlds collide,
And our time will be endless, (far away from home) Against the tides, if you rely on me No journey beyond, will be worthless, (far away) We will meet on the waves,
In a better place,
Track Name: The Bell Jar
Wasting time, Going through, You ́ll never shine, And you know, There will be nothing more at all,
I found my way, To a deepness, you ́ll never know, Kick my face, it won ́t leave any trace,
I ́m trying to hide all these pieces, Keep them mine, but nothing is ever close, It ́s like catching dreams through the mirror,
I want you back, I will align onto your shape, Don ́t kill my time, Elevate my mind,
I ́m trying to hide all these pieces Keep them mine, but nothing will be ever close, Like catching dreams through the mirror,
It ́s like catching dreams through the mirror, Sitting in a bell jar,
I ́m trying to hide all these pieces, Keep them mine, but nothing is ever close, Like catching dreams through the mirror,
Questions never fade, Life ́s a tormented dream, Questions never fade, Life ́s a tormented dream,
I ́m trying to hide all these pieces, Keep them mine, nothing will be ever close, Like catching dreams through the mirror, Like sitting in a bell jar, It ́s like sitting in a bell jar,
Track Name: Living a Lie
You ́re searching for new chances, Certain points in time, You ́re feeling kind of lost, And leave your self behind,
Alone on fractured ground, Remembering the day, When you ́ve left the line, When you ́ve lost your way,
Shades of slow decay,
You are living a lie, But it ́s way too late to say goodbye for now, You are living a lie, It ́s not over now,
The rain sounds like glass, Falling into sand, Waiting for replies, To all the signs you ́ve sent,
Sitting on the skyline, Watching days go by, Longing for tomorrow, Asking yourself why,
Shades of slow decay,
You are living a lie, But it ́s way too late to say goodbye for now, You are living a lie, It ́s not over now,
Grieving and screaming for help, But nothing brings you back to the start,
You ́re living a lie...
Track Name: Inward Exile
Caught inside, memories always hunting prey, In disguise, watch her suicide on TV, She recalls the lies, being torn for the last time, Under empty skies, she is in flames,
Caught alive,transmissions from the other side, Cold as ice, her eyes still looking at me, Like wolfs on the door, Reborn for the last time,
A sign on a wall, she is going astray,
Exile, take me home again, I see the bridges burning, We ́re like ashes in the fall, All I feel, that we don ́t belong to here, Get me out this trap of wrong fascination,
Caught inside, pages torn and writings veiled Run and hide, the hunter is awaiting his prey, We come undone, dethroned for the last time, With helpless hands and loosing faith,
Deadstop, ticking clocks, Pull me away, I hear ticking clocks, deadstop, Pull me away,
Exile, take me home again, I see the bridges burning, We ́re like ashes in the fall, All I feel, that we don ́t belong to here, Get me out this trap, of wrong fascination, Get me out, get me out,
Track Name: Snowblind
Without change, something sleeps, Sleeps inside of us, The sleeper must awaken, To live, to learn and discover,
Eyes larger than the night, A clear vision of failure, Deceive yourself and watch, Watch while everything shatters,
I couldn't think of anyone. I couldn't feel anything, Finding peace among the wreckage, Lie to me and lay next to me,
Snowblind, snowblind, Surviving the game, Snowblind, snowblind, Surviving the shame, It ́s too bright to see, What has become of me,
The shape of things to come, Tainted words so familiar, Promised worlds collapse, We touch, we fall, we remain strangers,
I couldn't think of anyone. I couldn't feel anything, Finding peace among the wreckage, Lie to me and lay next to me,
Snowblind, snowblind, Surviving the game, Snowblind, snowblind, Surviving the shame, It ́s too bright to see, What has become of me,
Track Name: Mirror Cage
Days , how many days are we given to stay, It yet seems limitless in every way, A once sheltering sky, will rain down on you, Loosing all ideals you trust into,
Mirror Cage, you ́re coming over me You ́re hunting me down, Mirror Cage, you won ́t answer me, You ́re hunting me down,
Alive, alive in exit wounds of yesterday, Spending time in expensive sadness, carried away, Acting in a shadowplay, as a frozen part, ( A drowning man will catch at a straw, Falling, not breathing)
Mirror Cage, you ́re coming over me You ́re hunting me down, Mirror Cage, you won ́t answer me, You ́re hunting me down,
Resurrection jukebox play me a song, Bring it all back,
Mirror Cage, you ́re coming over me You ́re hunting me down, Mirror Cage, remembers everything, You ́re hunting me down,
You ́re hunting me down,
Track Name: Second Skin 2.0
Today she wears her second skin, She dresses so unkind, She won ́t never let me in again, Her new world just fits right,
And I feel I can ́t hold on, Believing hearts gone blind, And I can ́t control my thoughts, Which are burning from the inside, Burn me to ashes from the inside I try to escape, and I try to escape, Because,
Time is right now, to cut these strings away, You have planted, quit the whispers in my ears, Time is right now, to get rid of this second skin,
How could I find sleep, With this painted girl, crying on the wall, Reflecting worn-out memories, But haunts me after all,
And I feel I can ́t hold on, Believing hearts gone blind, And I can ́t control my thoughts, Which are burning from the inside, Burn me to ashes from the inside, And I try to escape,
Time is right now, to cut these strings away, You have planted, quit the whispers in my ears, Time is right now, to get rid of this second skin, Get rid of this second skin, Get rid of this second skin,
Track Name: The Living End
We fall, through webs of deception, Lost calls, given and taken, We came, searching for something, And we taste only the nothing,
We fight, counting the days alone, We cry, shameless devotional, See all signs, the way leads to bliss there, So bless the blind faces inside,
We chose the way of destruction, We smile into the pale face of agony, Everyone becomes his own stranger, Destination is far from our sight,
We chose to take on this race alone, Against a god that was never existing, Our eyes stray on the horizon, Bless their faces with ashes and dust,
We fall, the deeper the better, We try to reach a vast and empty ground, Find the spirits as they are laughing, Kiss the ring and forget about yourself,
We fall deeper than the darkest end, We drink the sweetest ambrosia, A mind, free of obsession, A world, that becomes obsolete,
A view, wider and brighter, As we slip to our oblivion, Rejoin without all your wrong faith, Sinking, falling back to yourself,
Track Name: Broken Flowers
Take these leaves of this broken flowers, When you hold it, colours unfolding, If nothing seems to be right and it used to be you, To make me whole and feed my soul,
If I could fall into the sky, Nothing can bring me down, Nothing can bring me down, Reaching out for my sanctuary, Reaching out, reaching out for my sanctuary, It ́s you, it ́s you, it ́s you
Blindness strikes my eyes, Just let me breathe you in, Taste the sweetest drop, You ́ll kiss the tears away, We ́ll kiss the fears away, Dancing on the edge, Spinning on fields of dreams, And we become the horizon, She is giving me everything and more,
If I could fall into the sky, Nothing can bring me down, Nothing can bring me down, Reaching out for my sanctuary, Reaching out, reaching out for my sanctuary, It ́s you, it ́s you, it ́s you
Track Name: Sheltering Skies
Thrown into a no man ́s land, Awaiting a new dawn, A shadow in your precious heart, A ghost dance for redemption,
You are still trying to forget, But somber clouds always descent, Strive not to fall, I still carry you,
For what is given, Can be taken away, But the memories will always stay, Sojourning the night, Keep you burning,
Rise up and shine a light,
Your rusty cage won ́t break, It gets even stronger, Enclosed in a piece of glass, A refuge of delusion,
You are still trying to forget, But somber clouds always descent, Strive not to fall, I still carry you,
For what is given, Can be taken away, But the memories will always stay, Sojourning the night, Keep you burning,
Rise up and shine a light,
