Once in a while, Germany offers uniquely talented female singers, and Andrea is one of those. Draw yourself a line from Marlene Dietrich over to Nico, add some dashes Chamber Pop in the vein of The Tindersticks to it and you come close. Discovered and loved by such illustrious people like Charles Plymell or Mike Watt, Andrea Schroeder is such an exceptional phenomenon. She's a musical poetess, with an outstanding voice that is as fascinating as her thrilling and melancholic lyrics. "Where The Wild Oceans End" is Andrea's second album produced by Chris Eckman (The Walkabouts, Tamikrest, Midnight Choir) and analogue recorded at the Ocean Sound Recording Studios, Norway very close to the Atlantic coast. If you compare her forthcoming release to the critical acclaimed debut album "Blackbird" you must admit that she has taken the next big step. Andrea Schroeder and her band, including Danish guitarist and songwriting partner Jesper Lehmkuhl (Farmen), have made an unbelievable progression since releasing "Blackbird“ on Glitterhouse Records in 2012. Focussing on her seductive but threatening voice and the charateristic melancholic storys Andrea's musical vision is still growing. "Where The Wild Oceans End" is an album as it was made from one piece: it leaves its marks but inspires your soul and ends in deepest satisfaction.

Paint It Blue

When the red and golden colors
Shine into my mind
The sky is burning
And hell is going on

No painting can resist
And no heavenly clouds

I will paint it blue again
And again
And again

I will paint it blue again
And again
And again
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I will paint it blue again
I will paint it blue again
Oh, i will paint it blue

No painting can resist
And no heavenly clouds

I will paint it blue again
And again
And again

I will paint it blue again
I will paint it blue again
Oh, I will paint it blue

Bebop Blues

( From the poem 'Buffalo bebop blues' By Charles Plymell )

Oh your head's too instant
And your Jell-o mold won't mix
Your head's too empty
Ain't nothing you can fix

So I'm going back to Wichita
And rebop the bebop blues, oh yes
Going back to Wichitown!
And bebop the rebop blues

My clutch is slipping
But I'll arrive on time
My clutch went out
Beside the plastic diner sign

Oh your head's too instant
And your Jell-o mold won't mix
Your head's too empty
Ain't nothing you can fix
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Going back to Wichita
And rebop the bebop blues, oh yes
Going back to Wichitown
And bebop the rebop blues

Ain't pulling no weight baby
So I don't need no lows
All I need is high
And I know just how to go

Going back to Wichita
And rebop the bebop blues, oh yes
Going back to Wichitown
And bebop the rebop blues

I'm going back to Wichitty
And bebop around the flo, oh yes
I'm going back to Wichitty
And bebop the rebob blues

The bebop blues

Wrap Me In Your Arms

We are strangers
In the streets
Crazy eyes
Without a light

Feed my soul
Breath in
Breath out
The sadness

Feed my soul
Breath in
Breath out
Our love

The wind is cold
It hurts my eyes
The shoes are worn
And faith is gone

Wrap me in your arms
Wrap me in your love, sweet one
Wrap me in your arms
Wrap me in your love, sweet one
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Feed my soul
Breath in
Breath out
Your worries

Feed my soul
Breath in
Breath out
Our love

Wrap me in your arms
Wrap me in your love, sweet one
Wrap me in your arms
Wrap me in your love, sweet one

Ghost Ship

Ghost ships are sailing
Across the open sea
The wind blows cold
Into our darkened faces

Eternal mountains of ice
Surrounding me
No way up with these feet
To find faith in me

No way up with these feet
To find faith in me
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
And all my tears in the river
Are filling the sea
All the tears in the river
Are filling the sea
The sea of love

Greycolored thoughts
Bury salty raindrops
Of emptiness
Into my face
The sweat of your lust
Is all poured upon me

It went through my vains
Forever haunting you

It went through my vains
Forever haunting you

And all my tears in the river
Are filling the sea
All the tears in the river
Are filling the sea
The sea of love

Come sail with me
This boat into nowhere
Bright skies blinding
In the land of the light

The sun burns our skin
To heat for the night
Some wild pearls of love
And me hiding in your chest

And all my tears in the river
Are filling the sea
All the tears in the river
Are filling the sea
The sea of love

Death Is Waiting

Death is waiting around the corner
Death is waiting just for me
Death is waiting around the corner
And it comes to set me free

Death is waiting around the corner
Death is waiting just for me
Death is waiting around the corner
And it comes to set me free

And it comes, and it comes
And it comes to set me free
And it comes, and it comes
And it comes to set me free
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Death is waiting around the corner
Death is waiting just for me
Death is waiting around the corner
And it comes to set me free

Death is waiting around the corner
Death is waiting just for me
Death is waiting around the corner
And it comes to set me free

And it comes to set me free
And it comes to set me free

Blackbird

A song of blood-red roses
In a silent night
With a pocket full of wonders
Into the sparkling light

Blackbird,
Sing me your song
A song of blood-red roses
In a silent night

The evil in the depths
Of our human lives
The nature is his playground
To fool our foolish minds
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Blackbird
Sing me your song
A song of blood-red roses
In a silent night

No sun is here to see
Through the deepest green
We're sinking to the ground
Into the mud of pain

Blackbird
Sing me your song
A song of blood-red roses
In a silent night

Blackbird
Sing me your song
A song of blood-red roses
In a silent night

In a silent night

Blackberry Wine

I am scufflin' down a road
Kicking pebbles on the way
Thinkin' about my problems
Wishin' they would go away

Can't they see i am a blackberry
Growing on a vine
And with a little bit of tenderness
I will be blackberry wine

I am stumblin' down the road
It's a pitch black sky
I fear this path is leading me
To my final goodbye
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Can't they see we're all blackberries
Growin' on a vine
And with a little bit of love
We'll be blackberry wine

Oh this little blackberry
Was left on the vine
But little did they know
It would leave seeds behind

And so the circle goes
And so the circle grows
And so the circle goes
And so the circle grows

Oh we're all little blackberries
Growin' on a vine
And with a little bit of love
We'll be blackberry wine

Oh we're all little blackberries
Growin' on a vine
And with a little bit of love
We'll be blackberry wine

And with a little bit of love
We'll be blackberry wine

Winter Days

Time stands still
Sweat is pouring down the wall
Grey hollows the mind
And no wind blows

The snow is melting into brown rivers
Of forgotten winter days
My heart beats slowly
Like some tired wings

And we all just pass away
And we all just pass away, my dear
And we all just pass away
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
The world lays down
Within its purple sheets of night
The moon light pours
In my weakened brain

The snow is melting into brown rivers
Of forgotten winter days
My heart beats slowly
Like some tired wings

And we all just pass away
And we all just pass away, my dear

And we all just pass away

Dark Nightingales

Dark nightingales
Are singing in my garden
Dreaming of flowers
And dreaming of love

Singing melodies of warmth and nearness
About the distance between you and me
Straight into your heart
Into your loving heart
Into your loving heart

Fish are swimming in my seas
And floating away with unbearable sorrow
Straight into your heart
Into your loving heart
Into your loving heart

Yellow flowers are planted in me
They're grown into the sun
Straight into your heart
Into your loving heart
Into your loving, loving heart
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Fish are swimming in my seas
And floating away with unbearable sorrow
Straight into your heart
Into your loving heart
Into your loving heart

Yellow flowers are planted in me
They're grown into the sun
Straight into your heart
Into your loving heart
Into your loving, loving heart

Dark nightingales
Are singing in my garden
Dreaming of flowers
And dreaming of love

Kälte

Wenn die kälte deinen Blick versteinert
Und der frost das herz gefriert
Wenn die schneebedeckten felder
Verharr'n in weisser einsamkeit
Und selbst der Wind mit grauem Seufzen bläst

Wenn die weissverhangnen Bäume
Unter schwerer last vergeh'n
Wenn die krähen auf den feldern
Im grauen dunst verschwimmen,
Und der körper leer und ohne hoffnung ist
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Wie sollst du mich erreichen
In diesem weissen land
Kristalle, eis und Stille
Und nur meine kalte hand

Wenn Gedanken grau im Schneesturm kreisen
Ohne halt und ohne Ziel
Wenn der frost die klauen fester
In mein schwaches hirn einkrallt
Und jedes Wort von dir schon in der luft gefriert

Wie sollst du mich erreichen
In diesem weissen land
Kristalle, eis und Stille
Und nur meine kalte hand

Wie sollst du mich erreichen
In diesem weissen land
Kristalle, eis und Stille
Und nur meine kalte hand

Und nur
Meine kalte hand

Und nur
Meine kalte hand

Where The Wild Oceans End

Dead Man’s Eyes

My mouth is dry
Of unspoken words

And my hands
So tired of writing

The wine rests of the other day
Are dried in our glasses

And keep staring at me
Like a dead man's eyes
And keep staring at me
Like a dead man's eyes

The rats are fading
Into the void

The world's a cotton mouth
Filled with filthy burning tongues
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
The garbage lays beside
Blue skies and dirty clouds

And keep staring at me
Like a dead man's eyes
And keep staring at me
Like a dead man's eyes

And keep staring at me

Ghosts Of Berlin

There're ghosts in Berlin
Bodies buried in the ground
They're walking in the streets
Without a sound

There are ghosts in the streets of Berlin
There are ghosts in Berlins streets
The ghosts of Berlin
Die Geister von Berlin
The ghosts of Berlin
Die Geister von Berlin
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Little ghost
Why can't you sleep
There are daisies grown
Upon your grave

There are ghosts in the streets of Berlin
There are ghosts in Berlins streets

She brings you flowers
Everyday
Can't you see them
They're tinted grey

There are ghosts in the streets of Berlin
There are ghosts in Berlins streets
The ghosts of Berlin
Die Geister von Berlin
The ghosts of Berlin
Die Geister von Berlin

Until The End

Loving you
The sweetest thing
Loving you
My dearest friend

You know I've got to do
What I've got to do
And that's loving you
Until the end
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Loving you
The sweetest thing
Loving you
My dearest friend

You know I've got to do
What I've got to do
And that's loving you
Until the end

Until the end
Until the end
Until the end
Until the end

Until the end

Helden

( 'Heroes" David Bowie, Brian Eno )

Do
Konntest do schwimmen
Wie Delphine
Delphine es tun

Niemand gibt uns eine Chance
Doch wir konnen siegen
Fur immer und immer
Und wir sind dann Helden
Fur einen tag

Ich, Ich bin dann König
Und do, do Königin
Obwohl sie
Unschlagbar scheinen
Werden wir Helden
Fur einen Tag
Wir sind dann wir
An diesem Tag
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Ich, Ich glaubte zu träumen
Die Mauer I'm Rücken war kalt
Schusse reissen die Luft
Doch wir kussen
Als ob nichts geschieht

Und die Scham fiel auf ihre seite
Oh, wir konnen sie schlagen
Fur alle zeiten
Dann sind wir Helden
Fur diesen Tag

Dann sind wir Helden
Dann sind wir Helden
Dann sind wir Helden
Fur diesen Tag
Dann sind wir Helden

Fireland

Your demons
They are walking
Through fireland
Across the burning sand
And I'm longing
To be near you again

You are falling
Like an angel
Falling from the sky
These broken wings
Won't take you high
Won't make you fly again
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I follow you
Through the dead of night
I search for stars in your eyes
But they won't return
You just crash and burn
You slowly die

I follow you
Through the dead of night
I search for stars in your eyes
But they won't return
You just crash and burn
You slowly die

The Spider

There's a spider
Crawling in my head
And with its big fat legs
It's crawling in my heart
And with its big fat legs
It's crawling in my heart

There's a spider
With empty thoughts of death
And with its big fat legs
It's crawling my heart
And with its big fat legs
It's crawling my heart
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
With a net of silver
And poison in its mouth
A vicious clammy cloth
Is wrapped around my mind

There's a spider
Crawling in my head
And with its big fat legs
It's crawling in my heart

Crawling in my heart

Where The Wild Oceans End

The town is full of parrots
Sitting on the trees
Red and yellow painted
And you walk with me

I close my eyes
And I smell the sea
And I can feel
The ocean in me

And the waves
In the view
In this very old town
There's a magic place
Where the wild oceans end

Between the mountains
The waves are breaking
In the middle of a dream

I close my eyes
And I smell the sea
And I can see
The ocean in me
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
And the waves
In the view
In this very old town
There's a magic place
Where the wild oceans end

The Rattlesnake

( From the poem of Charles Plymell )

I know the shipwreck is out there
And spacesuit above the sunflower

But I have no god to pray to
Before the deep dark sleep takes over

There might be a hologram
At the edge of space indeed to hold

Old captains afraid to sail beyond the seas
Tangled in the ropes

I've only chance to pray to
And long for the bodies in my bed
I've only chance to pray to
And long for the bodies in my bed

They have claimed like figurines
My possibilities and weary dream

The grass, the weeds
Always half beaten down and sorrowful
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Dandelion pride under the feet of those
Who walk unaware

I've only chance to pray to
And long for the bodies in my bed
I've only chance to pray to
And long for the bodies in my bed

Summer Came To Say Goodbye

Summer came to say goodbye
All the memories in the sky
Summer came to say goodbye
Summer came to say goodbye

Summer came to say goodbye
The birds are flying high
Summer came to say goodbye
All the memories in the sky

But it won't get me down
No, it won't get me down
It won't get me down
Summer came to say goodbye
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Summer came to say goodbye
All the memories in the sky
Summer came to say goodbye
Summer came to say goodbye

Walk Into The Silence

The night is quiet
And so am I
Frost outside
And dizzy lights

The candle burned
Down to it's end
The night is dark
When light is gone

And then we walk into the silence
Through the streets without a home
And then we walk into the silence
Through the streets without a home
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
The music ended
Just as it started
And now begins
What never ends

The wine is gone
So dark and sweet
The years have passed
Like wind and rain

And then we walk into the silence
Through the streets without a home
And then we walk into the silence
Through the streets without a home

Void

Void

On this white screen
Letters burn
Like the hot metal
Into the flesh

Shut the voice of
Fill the void
The big nothing
Surrounds us
In stereotypes
copy paste robots kill the internet
My feet won't carry
Us no more
My arms are tired
Open wide

Shut it down
Shut it down
And pray for silence
Pray to God
Pray to the devil
Whatever you share
It all goes down
In the void

The tone are like whores
Pleasing the ears
Of the mad men

Shut it down
Shut it down
And pray for silence
Pray to God
Pray to the devil
Whatever you share
It all goes down
In the void

Pray to God
Pray to the devil
Whatever you share
It all goes down
In the void

It all goes down
It all goes down
It all goes down

Black Sky

My God
It's so empty
Here tonight
There's not even a ghost's sigh

My smoke
Disappears
Into the black sky
The black sky
The black sky
copy paste robots kill the internet
I clip
My cigarette
And go back
Inside
Back inside

And open
Another bottle
Every cell
Every cell
Welcomes the poison
Welcomes the poison

Into the black sky
The black sky
Into the black sky
The black sky
The black sky

Burden

Lay your burden
Upon me
'Cause I got nothing
Left to loose

Lay your burden
Upon me
My back is broken soon

In this world
There's no salvation
There's no one to set us free
copy paste robots kill the internet
I can ease your burden
If you lay it upon me
I can ease your burden
If you lay it upon me

Who can ease my burden
Within this burdened world
No one here to free us
If we don't free ourselves

I can ease your burden
If you lay it upon me
I can ease your burden
If you lay it upon me

Lay your burden
Upon me
'Cause I got nothing
Left to loose

Lay your burden
Upon me
My back is broken soon

My skin is Like Fire

Deep inside me there is sadness
The sadness of knowing
I'm not the one
I used to be

The sadness of hope and forgiveness
When the sweet rivers flow
My skin is like fire
My skin is like fire
copy paste robots kill the internet
Your skin is like honey and silk
When you're lying by my side
I feel safe and warm
Safe and warm

Deep inside there is sadness
There is wilderness and pain
When the sweet rivers flow
My skin is like fire
My skin is like fire

Your skin is like honey and silk
When you're lying by my side
I feel safe and warm
Safe and warm

Deep inside there is sadness
There is wilderness and pain
When the sweet rivers flow
My skin is like fire
My skin is like fire

My skin is like fire
My skin is like fire

And I'm waiting for you

Was Poe Afraid

(Charles Plymell)

On these same brick streets
Of Baltimore tonight
Was Poe afraid
Was Poe afraid

Afraid of the florescent eyes of dogs
The raven's reflection, the rats scat
Through sawdust in Hollins Market
A smell of rot and burlap thick as fur

Afraid of roaches, disease of poverty
Loud poverty boom-box crackle crack whip
Poor ponies pulling carts full of greens
Up Greene Street, overloaded with greed
copy paste robots kill the internet
Was Poe afraid
Was Poe afraid
Was Poe afraid
Was Poe afraid

Afraid of the thick sky over foggy tavern door
On Cross Street's cloud-draped rummaged crimson cloak
Threading from the hill down to the curling dark water bay

Afraid of statues with iron poet capes flowing
In formal rapture and cast hollow spirit
Looking down cold upon those animated
Walking and talking past old doorways

Was Poe afraid
Was Poe afraid
Was Poe afraid
Was Poe afraid

Afraid of the wine, the drugs, the vault
Of alcoholic shoreline's fractal ragged fault
Floating in a dream grave afraid to yell
Smug disciples repeating versions of hell

The whirl of a wash, a tangled thread
Sets an alarm that turns to dread
Makes the vision flow instead into
Creation and how such grace is fed

Was Poe afraid
Was Poe afraid
Was Poe afraid
Was Poe afraid
Was Poe afraid

Life is a poor host grabbing guests who came
Swirling great pleated sheets wrapping the stars
Leaving, streaming party coils to their last cars
Some on twilight's slightly twisted cane

Drive me home

Drive me home
Across the land
Drive me home
On grey asphalt

Turn the light on honey
I wanna see the moths

Drive me home
I'm tired now
Drive me home
On grey asphalt

Carry us across the land
And guide us through the night
Turn the light on honey
I wanna see the moths
copy paste robots kill the internet
Drive me home
Across the land
Drive me home
On grey asphalt

Turn the light on honey
I wanna see the moths
Carry us across the land
And guide us through the night

Drive me home
On grey asphalt
Drive me home
On grey asphalt

Don't Wake Me

Don't wake me
When I sleep
Don't wake me
When I sleep

Because the night
Stands quietly behind
And all the angels
Sleep beside

Don't wake me
When I sleep
Don't wake me
When I sleep
copy paste robots kill the internet
I see the trees in green
The flowers white
And all the angels sleep beside

Don't wake me
When I sleep
Don't wake me
When I sleep

I sense your breath beneath my ear
My skin waves silky wings
I feel your hands around my heart
And soon it falls apart

Don't wake me
When I sleep
Don't wake me
When I sleep

Because the night
Stands quietly behind
And all the angels
Sleep beside

Don't wake me
When I sleep
Don't wake me
When I sleep

Endless Sea

There was a time for children playing
There was a time for grass to grow
There was a time for ice-cream melting
There was a time for us to show

There was a time for daydreaming
And the wind swept our hair
But all the ghosts of our past
Followed us everywhere

No matter what we do
No matter how far we go
No matter what you do
No matter who I am
copy paste robots kill the internet
In the whispering of the endless sea
In the whispering of the endless sea
That's where we are

We went across the silent ocean
Through the rain, beyond the clouds
And all the thorns of roses
Scratches scars on our hearts

Empty words, shattered thoughts
AN empty look into the past
My seeking hands reach to the ground
And gone is what we found

No matter what we do
No matter how far we go
No matter what you do
No matter who I am

In the whispering of the endless sea
In the whispering of the endless sea
That's where we are

In the whispering of the endless sea
In the whispering of the endless sea
In the whispering of the endless sea
That's where we are
