I want you to melt inside of my hands I need your every breath The pain just keeps me forever alive But my life just waits for your little death You want me to give it all You need my every breath The pleasure you need forever and more But your life just waits for my little death I feel your fingers inside of my brain I need your every breath The motion never stops to rest And my life just wants your little death You feel my fire burning bright You need my every breath The standstill always comes to soon And your life just wants my little death Again I want you to melt in my hands I need your every breath The pleasure and pain are the potions of life But my life just seeks a little death Now I can’t help you anymore I breathed my every breath The pleasure has come to its final end And my life has found its own little death

Your Heroin 04:37
Your heroin don’t work no more, the needles are all broken Too much is left unspoken, drowned forevermore Your wounds can’t bleed no more, the tears are all flown All the sorrows you have known, are now accounted for So you go into the light of a new day Your heroin don’t work no more, all veins are closed to tight No way to get it right, gone forevermore Your heart can’t race no more, the pressure was to high For too long a time, so you open up that door So you go from the night and you pray That this is the break you’ve been waiting for The time of your life, you need to go Down the golden road you’ve been meaning to take To the land of the living, with nothing to fake anymore Your heroin don’t work no more, the needles are all broken Too much is left unspoken, drowned forevermore So you go into the light of a new day So you go from the night and you pray That this is the break you’ve been waiting for The time of your life, you need to go Down the golden road you’ve been meaning to take To the land of the living, with nothing to fake anymore

Holy Judas 04:09
I never wanted to be the role-model For all their unfulfilled dreams I never wanted to be the chosen one To betray a life and play this scheme Breaking glass above my head Couldn’t feel the gravel road beneath my feet I was unaware then stopped to stare At the unreal scene in front of me You played your role to the bitter end Sold your soul to the task at hand You’ve done your deed, watched them go The kiss on the cheek, the one to show Come to think of it I must admit It felt like gliding down my own throat But the better part of my heart Was already gone far down this road You played your role to the bitter end Sold your soul to the task at hand You’ve done your deed, watched them go The kiss on the cheek, the one to show

When the rain falls, slowly dripping When the night crawls, softly within When the rain falls, gently down And my life slowly fades away When the time comes, calling for me When the feelings numb every glee When the time comes, calling me out My life slowly fades away When the rain falls, slowly dripping When the night crawls, softly within When the rain falls, gently down And my life slowly fades away

The day I met you was a strange day I should have known that it couldn’t last The day I left you was a sad day I should have known that it will come to pass There’s a girl on the corner Waiting for a man to take her home It’s a good life she thinks Getting everything and not feeling alone The day I met you was a strange day I should have known that it couldn’t last The day I left you was a sad day I should have known that it will come to pass Back at home they wonder If she’s alright, if she’s alive But she’s too shy to go back All her plans didn’t work out, but she tries The day I met you was a strange day I should have known that it couldn’t last The day I left you was a sad day I should have known that it will come to pass I tried to save you The day I met you was a strange day I should have known that it couldn’t last The day I left you was a sad day I should have known that it will come to pass

Here’s to you, here’s to happiness Here’s to good times and bad To being happy and sometimes sad To every drop of rain falling down your pretty face And the ever changing beauty of your grace Here’s to you, here’s to happiness Here’s to falling down the rabbit hole And never coming back And to every new expression on your pretty face To the ever changing warmth of your embrace Here’s to us, here’s to loneliness Here’s to never feeling desolate And having friends pull us back And to every scar of sorrow on a pretty face To the ever changing tide of the human race Here’s to you, and to happiness To all the good times and bad And whenever you’re feeling sad Just think of this and the smile on a happy face And the all embracing warmth of summer days

Alibis 04:26
Step onto the stone, let’s hear your alibis We don’t have to believe but we sure will try Step into the light, blinding your eyes Telling us now it’s all been lies Watch now Your life passing by See it so clear A bunch of lies Rolling your dice, one at a time Fate determined, luck for a dime Ghosts of the past playing a mime Another life down in the grime Watch now Your life passing by See it so clear A bunch of lies

A lonely boy walking through the streets London wrapped in mist Didn’t go to school but learned to teach His pen revealing the gist My name is Louis he said in a calm Staring at the door But having to care for the family Was a task he wasn’t made for The cats got published everywhere But on returning home He didn’t take the time to care The money nearly gone It seemed to make you happy Thoughts were very clear While drawing cats in a landscape You could overcome your fear But were you really crazy As doctors and your sisters said Or were the cats just prisoners Forever captured in your head The untimely death of his beloved wife After just three years The strain of providing the family bread Eyes filled with tears His mind wandered more and more To places no one can say His temper got worse, what could they do They helped to lock him away Discovered in darkness of ambit and mind Moved to Bethlem Park Living a life in quiet and peace Still drawing cat after cat It seemed to make you happy Thoughts were very clear While drawing cats in a landscape You could overcome your fear But were you really crazy As doctors and your sisters said Or were the cats just prisoners Forever captured in your head I like drawing cats Cats in a cradle Cats having fun And cats at the table Cats playing golf Cats lying around Cats hunting mice Cats white and brown Cats and their friends At a barbecue Cats doing things Just like me and you

about

On November 11, just a few days after the 2016 elections in the US, no:carrier release their new album "Broken Rainbow" - sub-titled "Ballads for an Apocalyptic World". The cover shows this end-time vision with a sightless, dressed-up girl holding a dark crow amidst a barren landscape, oblivious of the destruction around her. Only a little glimpse of hope can be seen in the form of an, albeit fading, rainbow.

The songs on "Broken Rainbow" range from the lead single's topic of depression and addiction ("Your Heroin") to the important role alleged villains often play in fostering what is good ("Holy Judas"), and the depths of human behaviour ("Little Death", "The Day I Met You", "Alibis"). With the creepy cover version of Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Bad Moon Rising", and "The Man Who Drew Cats", a biographical song about Louis Wain, famous for his illustrations populated by anthropomorphic cats, no:carrier again show a wide range of topics and musical influences, that are seldom found in today's music, and merge it with their signature Electro Noir style.
