about

"There's this light, airy quality to Present Paradox's music, somewhat akin to vintage Talk Talk, that manages to sound both psychedelic and emotive. This sings to my soul, as it likely will for anyone that thinks a lot, may be prone to bouts of melancholy, but also sees the brightness and positivity in life." J. Simpson , theevengrounds.com

"My Map only runs about twenty minutes, but it feels like it takes you on an hour long ride. For fans of ambient alternative music with a dark edge, Present Paradox is exactly what you need. This is not to say that the album doesn’t have have a light feel mixed in, however the lightness is saturated with emotion that can equally break you out of the melancholy of life. Expressing intense emotion with a deft hand is the easiest way to describe what Present Paradox has given us, something that may not always be easy to listen to but it certainly will make you think and feel." M. Orange, 24ourmusic.net

Track Name: Last Hello
I'm still sitting here
I throw stones to get out
and you give to me
so many advises
and you say to me
my arsenal is empty, is empty

are you still sitting here
what was your name
turn away
turn away
because
you are the daemon on my shoulder
and you have stolen my job
Track Name: Maybe or Maybe not
Maybe or Maybe not
but I got the feel change has started
it's slowly carrying me away
from the this place
because all I want
is to leave with all attributes
take me where it's loud and full
take me where its bright and green
maybe you will take me there
maybe or maybe not, not , not

hold my hand and set me free
hold my hand and set me free

Maybe or Maybe not
I saw some happines
I saw an happy end
one simple question one simpel answer
I never ought to be here, to be here, to here
this is all by mistake
but it's not my mistake
this is all by mistake
but it's not my mistake

hold my hand and set me free
hold my hand and set me free
Track Name: Drop me a line
I try to work it out
I try to finish it
its got an name and it's aim
the power of Monday I've lost it again
here is the blockade
come in my arms
this one is gonna suck
this one will make you sick
the thread is lost
your smiling has stopped
Drop me a line I will back soon
Drop me a line I will back soon
Drop me a line I will back soon
Drop me a line I will back soon
Track Name: Put me back
Tell me what
what has gone wrong
and tell me how
how to do things undone
fill the cracks
and glue the brackets
(now it's your turn)
inverted the function and make it work again
(now it's your turn)

put me back where I belong
put me back where I belong

I don't ask
ask what has gone wrong
but I can't see
see what needs to be done
show me the way back and forwards
(now it's your turn)
out of the blurred and unfocused
(now it's your turn)

put me back where I belong
put me back where I belong
Track Name: Nasty Malfunction
the spin on the white wall
dog sleeping back-doors
the ground isn't steady
I'm tried and confused
I'm hiding and don't like
to stare out of my window
because all I see is that my future isn't nice /
nasty, nasty malfunction
I'm tried and confused
ohhh what did I loose
ohhh what did I loose

and what makes me absent-minded
and what makes me absent-minded

the fear is always
coming back
it doesn't knock
at your door
a program switch
on full automatic
I can't control it
can't cut the wire
nasty, nasty malfunction
I'm tried and confused
ohhh what did I loose
ohhh what did I loose

and what makes me absent-minded
and what makes me absent-minded
Track Name: My Map
I left the street and took the secret way
trough the lonely woods
along the worry stream
and for a while I was lost
yeah I lost the trace
but you know I always find my way home, home

I have my map still in my pocket
it will guide my through , it will help me back
I lost my way in a desert place
next to high voltage pylons
next to a tiny stream
and for a while I was lost
yeah I lost the trace
but you know I always find my way home, home
I have my map still in my pocket
it will guide my through , it will help me back
