lyrics

I was born in Germany
Quite a place to me
Not only pretzels and beer
There’s more you can like here

I was born in Germany
Living history
Some of it good and some bad
There’s so much that we had

Some time ago so infamous for shouting out loud
Nowadays famous for not knowing how to act proud
I am still asking myself what this bit means to me
To be born in Germany

I was born in Germany
And occasionally
There is good music around
Without any brass sound

So many things could be better and so many worse
But I am quite happy where I am in this universe
Even if asking myself what the answer might be
There’s nothing to do or to say to deny what is me
I was born in Germany

“Piano, bass and drums – I don’t think I really need any other instruments!” said Erk when he started back in 2003. Since then he has evolved his sound and music, but still keeps it simple!
