about

It's finally out! The new Vrum-album will introduce the band's rapid change of style: from shoegazy lofi-post-rock to upbeat, very mathy indie rock mixed with electronica, multi-layered synths and high, dreamy vocals. The album comes in a jewelcase including a 5-page booklet. Don't miss this!

CDs out of stock.

Track Name: Infinite Forest
i'm lost in this forest
and all my thoughts have left me
the creatures from the dark side
are all neighbors with me now

i couldn't make it in time
but i guess that's okay
the stars on the ceiling
never showed me the way

you're calling this home now
so if i managed to leave
you wouldn't be coming with me

you're calling this home now
so if i managed to leave
my words would have no weight at all

i'm lost in this forest
and no matter the direction
i choose to head for
you'll always keep planting trees ahead
ahead

the stars on my ceiling
never showed me the way
Track Name: Cars Go In Two Directions
are you aware
that the car you're driving
is all in your control?

to go far from where you were
and turn around to watch the road
you've come along

none of these roads are our own
so why only this road to and fro?

to go far from where you were
and turn around to watch the road
you've come along

we all know that this ride's not for us
but let's take it anyway
we are not mushrooms shuffling
in only two directions

the nights may still be cold
and grass still wet from the rain
the bites may be iching
but that will not stop you
Track Name: Pandas With Tambourines 1
this machine is nothing but
a cash magnet to give us a purpose
still remember why you're here?
you're not what they say you are
'cause everyone would tell you the opposite things

let yourself go
you've done nothing wrong
so much to see
despite all that you're unsatisfied with

all these years i have been
only torturing myself with these questions
what if i'd done something different
or at least done anything
how could i reach answers that do not exist?

let yourself go
you've done nothing wrong
so much to see
despite all that you're unsatisfied-

please remember that in here
some pandas might play tambourines
Track Name: Pandas With Tambourines 2
when i'll grow up
and see all nightmares come alive
then i'll get told about how
shameful it is to be ignorant
i'll no longer feel like a child
and you're not feeling alright
but please, don't lose your mind

we are still so small in here, you see
in here some pandas might play tambourines
and i'm here to be your friend
to share these shadows and pretend
that we don't exist to them

lie on the grass
under the stars
it's not your fault if they fall

and they shake hands with each other
congratulations, you have been recruited
crawling from the shadows of the edge of my bed
while clouds drag themselves through the sky
they tear it apart so loud

we are still so small in here, you see
in here some pandas might play tambourines
and i'm here to be your friend
to share these shadows and pretend
that we don't exist to them

lie on the grass
under the stars
it's not your fault if they fall
Track Name: Mosquitoes Are Swarming This Summer
have i become someone else
and what i used to be like before?
have i started to act strange?
have i wasted my days again
avoiding hard circumstances
by dreaming them all away?

i feel miserable and that i'm not
true to myself
the biggest fear i can ever think of
is losing you, my friends

'cause i kinda want to talk to you
but i cannot remember who i am
i can admit it now
that i wish to be more like you
and not always manage
to make myself believe the strangest things

listening to the same songs still
it's a strong feeling you know,
the nostalgy
Track Name: The Operator Of A Huge Cash Magnet Which Inmost Purpose Is To Destroy The World
i'll try not to screw up
this is my first time here
fulfilling a purpose
like you do too

i'm starting to have enough
at least i fulfill a purpose
like you do too
Track Name: The Symbols And Their Meanings
why do you move only when i'm looking away
will there be anyone to trust if we all look away
why do you move only when i'm looking away
will there be anyone to trust if we all look away

things stop being what they seem
when the mind starts making up things

this is how much your talking makes sense to me


do you think the world would be a better place
if everyone were talking straight (continue studying)
without all the white lies and hidden meanings?
the symbols and their meanings, continue studying
Track Name: Flu
avoiding the light all the time
i just can't fall asleep at night
guess i can't have everything i want
i feel like an abandoned car idling
in this cold, i won't stay running
guess i can't have everything...

and you're just a bit too nice to me
as if anything would be possible at this point
guess i can't have everything i want
in the middle of day trying to stay awake
hopefully this winter will end someday
Track Name: Your Song
i've always hated to see you so sad
when you get detached from yourself again
to hide from the ghost you've summoned
when you no longer remember what you wanted
in the first place but only fear
only fear of losing yourself even worse

it may take some time to learn the rhythm
but believe me, eventually you'll learn it
then grab your tambourine
(and show me how it goes)

so play me your song
it's better than anything they've made for us, you know
so sing me your song
it's better than anything they've made for us before
