about

The debut album of Scarlekin is finally out now. This album deals with the topic of poorness in various ways. The lacking of money, love or faith is leading to a felt poorness. But music can be a resource of help and love.

This album is influenced by many different styles of music, basically Rock, HipHop and Pop. Main influences where Dire Straits, Eminem, Sting and many more... This combination led to a spheric sound, with the typical drum sound and the memorable pitched rapping voice.

All songs where completely written, produced, mixed and mastered by Scarlekin.

Track Name: No Love
It seems to be like there is no love
at least not enough
so many poor people
eating our trash up
so many people acting tough
to hide their weaknesses from us
It seems to be like there is no love
at least not enough
not enough ... love

There is no love until we all have enough to make a living
There is no love until we finally stop each single killing
Track Name: Working Men Blues
Each day is a struggle now
since my lady gave birth to my baby
I am trying to get the cash
to serve them a meal today
but my feet won't go on for long

I ain't get no sleep at night
the night-shifts make me go crazy
I am tryin to be a dad
and a good husband for my lady
but my feet won't go on for long
no my feet won't go on for long

I am under pressure! I want something better!
My mood is like an equivalent to this dusty weather!
My family needs me, but I need the job to feed them!
And this job is holding me down, I am no longer breathin
freely! And the beer in the evining is not helpin me!
When I go on like that I end up in a therapy!

I need to calm down!
To hold my lady in my arms now again!
My friend,
I need some help now!
Land me a hand!
I need to calm down!
To hold my lady in my arms now again!
My friend!
I need some help now
before I end!
Track Name: Wall
There is a wall to be torn down again
because each soul lost in the ocean belongs to a friend
And the say it must not happen again
But action isn't done yet
pressure isn't strong enough yet
so

we need to push them, push them to their limits
push the politics, tell them that our feelings are vivid
Tell them that we care about the living of the dying one's
that we are fighting on until the actions are entirely done!
2x

But what needs to be done
to ensure that each one
can survive on their road
to a place without war?

We have to think about that they are not here voluntarily
they need to leave their homes to survive their tragedy
Maybe that makes us a bit more understanding
of the demands of all those stranding
And we don't need any more commemorations
for the drowed souls in the ocean, we can save them!
And when someone says saving them benefits the smuggling one's
it's a mockery of all the refugees still struggling on

and on, and on, and on
it seems to be like a never ending circle, a circle of death!

When you are in danger of death
you leg it and run
When there's no legal way
you have to take the illegal one
Track Name: Old Man
I am walking the avenue again
where the old man is singing his songs
The same old song of his way down
to his place, to this place, where noone belongs!

And he's playing for me now
His life in his words
And it's tearing him down
He's deadly hurt!
And he's playing for me now
He's accusing me
and all of us! He just wants to live!

His eyes are directed at me
It's like he wants to tell me something
It's like he wants me to see
his place, this place, where noone belongs!

And he's playing for me now
His life in his words
And it's tearing him down
He's deadly hurt!
And he's playing for me now
He's accusing me
and all of us! He just wants to live!
Track Name: Money Ain't A Thing
Money ain't a thing, if you already lost it
Lets take another drink and this night as our hostage
Money ain't a thing, if you have none in your pocket
Just let me be free!

Money ain't a thing, If you have ninetynine problems
Fired by the boss, but we go ahead and say fuck it
Just scream it out and sing, until you comletely lost it
Just let us be free!

The market is free, so let us be the same
This system is puttin us in chains
But tonight we are breaking out and scream
The adrenalin is rushing throuhg our veins

Money ain't a thing, if you're already in trouble
Forget about the bling, let your mood skyrocket like hubble
Just everybody sing, and move out of your bubbles
Just let us be free!

Money ain't a thing, if you already lost it
Lets take another drink and this night as our hostage
Money ain't a thing, if you have none in your pocket
Just let me be free!
Track Name: Love Is The Answer
If hate is the enemy, love is the answer!
The pain, we are going through, is revealing our anger!
Let's change our world into a place that is better!
If hate is the enemy, love is the answer!

Track Name: Faith Lost
I have lost my faith
on this disappointing way
Yes I've seen it all
All the bad and the false, which the priests say

I tried to hold my ground
but everything I have found
stole my proud
I was screaming for answers, but noone replied yet!

They're threating us with fire
For each of our desires
But what they say and what they do
are seldom found together

I have lost my faith
on this disappointing way
Yes I've seen it all
All the bad and the false, and it doesn't seem to get better!

I need to come back, come back,
to where I was!!!

They say love your next
but that's not how they act
when they forbid to use
contraceptives to try to stay healthy

They say feed the poor
But when you open the doors
you'll find out, that they only
try to ensure to stay wealthy!

I tried to hold my ground
but everything I have found
stole my proud
I was screaming for answers, but noone replied yet!

I have lost my faith
on this disappointing way
Yes I've seen it all
All the bad and the false, and it doesn't seem to get better!

I need to come back, come back,
to where I was!!!

I've lost my faith and this road that ways
back in the days seemed to be straight faded away
And I don't know what to do now, help me please
Yeah I don't know what to do now, help me please
