    Recorded by Andy Fitz
    Mixed by Oliver Zülch,
    Mastered by Martin Scheer

    In winter 2017 THE WEIGHT released their long-awaited and widely acclaimed debut
    album – THE WEIGHT. During the next two years extensive touring made them known to a
    wider live audience throughout Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Hard work and slog
    refined the band’s stage performance, creating an atmosphere that established them as a
    highly praised live act and thus laid the foundation of a promising career. In retrospective
    this tour can be seen as a cornerstone of the band’s further development out of the
    charming small venues into a prosperous future.
    With their latest release LIVE TAPES the four musicians give a deep insight into their craft
    and creativity on stage. Moosbrugger’s bass is pumping and rumbling all over the place,
    Vetter is simply killing it on the drums and it remains a secret where Boebel got his riffs
    and licks from. Maybe Jussel, the frontman and singer, could tell but he is way too busy
    winning the audience in a moaning, invoking, almost operatic manner.
    Given the freedom from the studio and being striped down to their basic instrumentation
    THE WEIGHT’s songs reveal remarkable and valuable qualities you wouldn’t hear on an
    actual studio record. It’s (a)live baby!

We are the ocean The deep blue sea The lonely river Running wild and free No doubt about it Some like it hot You think it's easy Dig it, no it's not Yeah, Yeah, Yeah So we do it the hard way Yes, we do it the hard way We gonna go the hard way Yes, we do it the hard We are the mountain We are the peak We are the fountain You're supposed to seek But there's no freeway That goes up the hill You gonna fight With hunger, heart and will Do it the hard way Yes, we do it the hard way We gonna go the hard way Uhhh – do it Uhhh – do it Do it do it do it Do it do it do it Come on, come on, come on, come on Do it the hard way Yes, we do it the hard way We gonna go the hard way Yes, we do it the hard

You wanna be someone Go cover your face Just keep the secret Build up the maze You know the prize You want your share Go climb the ladder You're not far from there It's all inside of you It's all inside of you Your talk is silver Your looks are gold You paint the future Bright and bold You know the price You claim your share A place in heaven Is for those who dare It's all inside of you It's all inside of you Be patient, your time will come Shining bright like the sun Your time will come Your time will come Come and see! It's all inside of you It's all inside of you

I'm sure that everybody knows About a rich man's pride I wanna tell you story Of strange and tragic kind She smiled at him so gracefully He took her by the hand The sky was bright, nobody knew They plowed the devil's land A hungry eye may never see When love gives birth to hate The day is through, the work is done That's the blind man's fate When he got up, left alone In his anger and his shame He looked outside his window Into the pouring rain AHHHHH Not far away, another town Two shadows on the run Covered by their secret Hidden from the sun Two riders are aproaching A father and a son They carry grief, they carry guns Bullets, they have some There they are, there they run It's too late for goodbyes He took my love, I take his life It's an eye for an eye AHHHHH

I was... Back in LC Hot on her heels That's how I wove into that shabby shack And the place was hot So I gave it a shot Without a chance to get my money back And it's a strange, a strange, strange feeling And money ain't, no it ain't for keeping I was... Thrown to the street Got back on my feet With all that liquor running through my brain... Last thing I know I took the blow I felt our love was just in vain And it's a strange, a strange, strange feeling And money ain't, no it ain't for keeping You don't see it coming Out of the blue You loose control It's kind of true Every time You hit the nail The blowback gives you Such a thrill And it's a strange, a strange, strange feeling And money ain't, no it ain't for keeping
5.
Many, many years we've been A soldier and a gun You and me Afraid to pull that trigger Now a change ist about to come And I hear them ring the bell We're supposed to follow Uhhh Stay with me, stay with me Or leave me here for good Make up your mind, choose your own way Too many fights, too many tears To stop this train we're on You either junp or you keep on rolling Uhhh Soldier and a gun, soldier and a gun ...
6.
Cruel clown you wear your frown And not before too long Cool kids can dig the trick And sing your funky song Uhh – You gotta have some Uhh – You gotta give some Uhh – You gotta take some Who's gonna get some fun? Who's gonna get some fun? Who's gonna get some fun? Who's gonna have some fun? Wanna be a big boy? Better be a brave boy Bow to the holy cow Never be the lonely one Uhh Uhh Life can be so easy Come and try to please me Show me your devotion Always keep in motion Uhh Yeah, that's right Uhh That's how you do it! Who's gonna get some fun? Who's gonna get some fun? Who's gonna get some fun? We gonna have some fun Solo Who's gonna get some fun? Who's gonna get some fun? Who's gonna get some fun? We gonna have some fun
7.
Every day I walk the street Just to miss the line The mirror tells me I'm not drunk The paper says I'm fine The toilet is a minibar The carpet is a bed The devil got me on the run No reason to get sad And so the wheels keep turning – keep turning, keep turning And so my heart is burning The childhood is a distant dream The future is a script The plot is wishy-washy The actor gets no grip The producer tells me "You're OK!" Again I get the lie I'm acting like a kinky clown Did I miss the sign? And so the wheels keep turning – keep turning, keep turning And so my heart is burning
8.
Your knees are weak And your hands are cold A chill runs down your spine The petting zoo Is awaiting you So hurry, step inside! Uhhhhh You're in trouble baby Uhhhhh She's got the touch You want so much Don't be surprised to find A million pretty faces Enchanted by her smile Uhhhh You're in trouble baby Uhhhh You're in trouble baby
9.
I heard your tales of quarrel I heard your songs of doubt And I feel the pain and the anger Let them go for twist and shout And like a prophet in the land of broken dreams You are standing right in front of me And like a seeker in the land of milk and honey I am standing right in front of you Who really cares? Who wanna know? Who really cares? And like a prophet in the land of broken dreams You are standing right in front of me And like a seeker in the land of milk and honey I am standing right in front of you And like a seeker in the land of milk and honey I am standing right in front of you
10.
I could be doctor I could be king I could be a superstar I could be most anything Sometimes we have to face the truth Sometimes we have to sing the blues Let us be joyful Let us be true Let the good times roll Let's chase away the blue I can hear it calling, calling from the past It tells me I'm the only one, stuck here in this mess I can hear it calling, calling from the past It tells me I'm the only one, stuck here in this mess But that must be illusion – I guess it's just a lie And nothing ever hits as hard, as when I see you cry Let's chase away the blue
