about

The background stays dubious and no one knows exactly what the protagonists have lived through. „Last Scene“ commemorates past things that may better not have happened, but might have lead to
success. Anyway they can’t be changed, so all that is left is the embittered-melancholic retrospect. Imbedded in Chris Wirsig’s electronic-swing beats, carried by Cynthia Wechselberger’s voice – contemplative, angry, dunning.

lyrics

when the sun is shining in winter times onto the snow covered hills that I see looking out of my window, I feel a certain chill

when I walk down the deserted streets
with no one there but my memories
coming to the house where it all began

when I look through the blinded windows
though I can’t see a lot, I know it still shows
the last scene of a play we shouldn’t have staged

if I were you I wouldn’t be so eager
to tell them things they already know
if I were you I’d go and try to live as I preach so that it shows

if I were you I wouldn’t go on talking
about the things I barely understand
if I were you I’d get some help to find out who I really am

I think of you and all the others
who lived through all the glory of ours
but in the end we couldn’t get what we wanted from it

when I think back to these exciting times
I’m still sure we could have gotten it right
but maybe it was just a play we shouldn’t have staged

if I were you I wouldn’t be so eager
to tell them things they already know
if I were you I’d go and try to live as I preach so that it shows

if I were you I wouldn’t go on talking
about the things I barely understand
if I were you I’d get some help to find out who I really am
