about

200 lurkers Cologne, Germany

Two friends, two continents, a series of happy accidents. What once began as an exchange of letters morphed into a collaborative process of crafting songs from opposite sides of the Atlantic. The resulting catalog reflects the patina of many rounds of revision and accumulation. 200 Lurkers blends two distinct musical aesthetics into songs that feature glimmering moments and makeshift voices. ... more

Track Name: Aglajan Sea
one night back in 2006 i am sitting by the bar while she is counting money asking: "honey would you like another final beer before i close this rotten place?" | there's a fake name on her apron 'cause the real one sounds too strange. she looks at me with knowing eyes and then sighs and we both don't say a thing for the longest time | when she speaks again she stares into her drink, her voice at the brink of breaking: "my heart will grow around the pain just like a perfect pearl..." | but what good is a heart of pearl that she hides from me? not even whales can dive that deep into the aglajan sea | and if she would ask me now i'd run anywhere, anywhere with her | cause all that waits for me at home is really just worth running from
Track Name: A Stubborn Life
sweet boy, the hive came crashing down today | cracked open on the driveway | sweet boy, the bee queen fled here from the smoke | the day i burned the roses | i dreamed i gave her new wings for her flight | the once she owned just didn't fit right | sweet boy, there is this stubborn life | cracking me open like the bee hive | somewhere somewhere somewhere inside | sweet boy, if you ever made me cry, | it was from all the tender things you've said | sleep tight, and when you wake up again | it is my time to go to bed | like every every every night, okay?
Track Name: Dialogues
it happened once, twice and then again | unexpected and unplanned | leaving me gasping, shaken and tossed | now i'm dazzled in days and lost || [hoop en herinnering] i met you once, twice and then again | your body a rain of sparkling skin | every part tickles, a new line to flee | a cartography || bites instead of kisses | and your greed surprises me || you walk into the room | a fog, a change of hue, a molecule | you come and go away | everything has really changed || [bewonderen] you left me once, twice and then again | without warning and unplanned || let us not be angels | let's be saints instead || you walk into the room | a fog, a change of hue, a molecule | you come and go away | a wind a season, a time of the day | everything has really changed
Track Name: The Ice Maiden
east of the sun west of the moon her heart it fits into a spoon | two blinding beasts at her command your heart it freezes in her hand || east of the moon west of the sun they're pouncing on you when you run | each single strike of their black claws unique in shape like flakes of snow || although you offer them the bones and blindfold kisses of a child | they won't refrain from causing pain tearing the flesh out of your side || although my words can charm a swarm of homing birds out of the sky | and though my tales can fool a school of traveling whales onto the coast | none of the songs that i composed can help you fight that polar ghost | and all i ask is that you listen and you kiss with your eyes... | all i ask is that you listen and you kiss with your eyes closed

sweet boy, the hive came crashing down today | cracked open on the driveway | sweet boy, the bee queen fled here from the smoke | the day i burned the roses | i dreamed i gave her new wings for her flight | the once she owned just didn't fit right | sweet boy, there is this stubborn life | cracking me open like the bee hive | somewhere somewhere somewhere inside | sweet boy, if you ever made me cry, | it was from all the tender things you've said | sleep tight, and when you wake up again | it is my time to go to bed | like every every every night, okay?
