Broken Radio Landsberg Am Lech, Germany

"Alt-country combined with drum loops and electronic effects? Only in Germany. But the results are surprisingly true to the genre, considering Klaus Patzak's restrained vocals and slow-burn tempo. Patzak's songs simmer with a spaghetti-western feel that makes Broken Radio's music uniquely atmospheric - and unusually fun." ... more

Track Name: Losing You
Losing You

A face in the mirror
A person unknown
The eyes of a stranger
Reflection of my own

Did we really
Change that much
Are we slowly
Losing touch

Losing you
Is such an easy thing to do
Letting go
A love that is hard to hold

Casting shadows
Leaving traces
In my mind no
Memory erases

Love and sorrow
Passion and pain
There are times when
They all feel the same

Losing you
Is such an easy thing to do
Letting go
A love that is hard to hold

I made my choices
I took my chances
Took some wrong turns
Never came to my senses

Losing you
Is such an easy thing to do
Letting go
A love that is hard to hold
Losing you
There is nothing I can do
Letting go
A love that’s growing cold
Track Name: Roads To Roam
Roads To Roam

Silhouette in my rear view mirror
Distant lights, fading glow
I touch the night with the hum of the engine
The rhythm of the road

Sometimes I feel so tied down
So lost and out of place
I need to run, to ride, to ramble
Need to get some dirt in my face

From the shadows of the mountains
To all the places down the road
You are always on my mind
No matter where I go

If you never go out wandering
If you got no roads to roam
There ain’t no returning
There ain’t no coming home

Now I’m rolling with the thunder
Of a thousand thunder storms
Following down that old white line
Straight back into your arms

From the shadows of the mountains
To the city’s neon glow
You are always on my mind
No matter where I go
Track Name: High Roller's Blues
High Roller's Blues

I've been out there my sweet baby and I played the game
I looked right deep into the devil's eyes
He stole my soul and he tried to take my pride
He just laughed and I knew I ain’t never gonna roll the dice

I'm still out there my sweet baby as the game rolls on
Don't know how to stop it, to take control
I've pushed too hard, I've gone too far, I can't get back
I'm a high roller caught in a trap
Track Name: Ballad Of A Loaded Gun
Ballad Of A Loaded Gun

Sirenes echoe through the rainy night
The word is spread some girl had died
Her loved ones cry the scene is crowded
A viscious crime no doubt about it
I shot her down I shot her dead
I sent a message right through her head

Her time had come the hour of death
When I made her feel my iron breath
Roaring thunder, the job was done
There is a killer in everyone
No regrets no guilt I feel
Ain't got no soul got a heart of steel

I'm a drug that makes you strong
I don't care about what's right or wrong
I'm the coolest thing you've ever seen
I never speak a word but I act so mean
Yes I am supposed to kill
You can be sure I always will

You knew before you could figure
What would happen when you pulled the trigger
She went to heaven and you to hell
Now you find yourself locked up in jail
But I'm out here I'm still at large
It ain't me who's on a murder charge

Yeah that's right I'm the gun you draw
I make the rules I'm the law
What's wrong for you is just right for me
I ain't got no responsibility
So all you critics don't blame me not
I'm just a loaded gun and do my job
Track Name: Early Train Blues
Early Train Blues

There’s a train I ride
Every day
Before the morning light
Far away
By the light of dawn
I’m asleep
And this dream I have
Keeps haunting me

Flying down the tracks
Running wild and free
The law in our hands
Loose as can be
We robbed a man
With a rusty knife
We took everything from him
Took his life

The body on the floor
Blood all over the place
The knife in my hand
Tears on my face
I hear the sirens scream
The whistle blow
I hear it in my dream
Time for me to go

Now I’m a wanted man
I have robbed I have killed
They are trying to make me pay
For the blood that I’ve spilled
There’s a train I ride
Every day
If only I could stop this train
And ride away
Track Name: Lonestar Highway
Lone Star Highway

Always rockin’ always rollin’
The kinda life that he liked best
Sweet voices calling
Calling him from way out west

Many a mile we rode together
Down that Lone Star Highway
Going wild, going crazy
Now he's gone for good, he's gone to stay

Fare thee well, it’s the end of the ride
No more miles left to burn
Nowhere to head for, no place left to hide
On this road of no return

Where will we be going when we're gone
Will there be smoky bars and blues guitars
Colored lights and hot Southern nights
Will we be dancing with the stars

Thought the road would go on forever
Thought the party would never end
A pile of memories is all there is
There’s something missing here my friend

Fare thee well, it’s the end of the ride
No more miles left to burn
Nowhere to head for, no place left to hide
On this road of no return
Track Name: Into The Fire
Into The Fire

Never ever wanted
To fall in love with you
All of my life I’ve been so lonely
So sad and blue

Thought I’d need nobody
I’d be better off alone
Until you came my way girl
And took me along

Deeper and deeper
I’m sliding
Higher and higher
I’m riding

You came without a warning
Out of the blue
You’re in my blood
I feel you through and through

I can’t get enough now
It’s a burning desire
It’s a hell of a trip
Right into the fire

Deeper and deeper
I’m sliding
Higher and higher
I’m riding
Track Name: Lost And Found
Lost And Found

The road is long
When you’re far from home
The road is long
When you’re too long gone
I’ll see you around
At the lost and found

The road you take
The choice you make
No matter what road you take
What difference does it make
You’re on your way down
To the lost and found

The faster you go
The greater you grow
No matter no, no, no
You won’t change the way things go
I’ll see you around
At the lost and found

We’re two lost souls
On a downhill road
We’re two lost souls
Running from the cold
I’ll be waiting around
At the lost and found

The road is long
How can we go on
The road is long
I'm too long gone
I'll see you around
At the lost and found
Track Name: The Final Waltz
The Final Waltz

When I close my dim eyes
All those dirty lies
Fade away into the long black night

In the last thirty seconds
All my serious weapons
Melt away with a whispering sound

There's a jail I can't leave
There's a fort and a chief
Sinking down in the marshy ground

Red toxic passions
And lethal obsessions
Cease from their profession

Who the devil are you
Where are you leading me through
Out of space and out of time

Surrender without complaining
Nothing is remaining
But a lovely nursery rhyme
Track Name: Out In The Country
Out In the Country

Want to go out to the country
Catch a breath and take some time
Close my eyes and look around
Find some piece of mind

City life just wears me out
Yeah, this old town drags me down
Hard luck stories, broken dreams
There’s no love in this town

Don’t need no glamorous boulevards
No concrete walls, no shopping malls
No plastic babes, no fashion slaves
Ain’t gotta ride the latest wave

There’s a lot of crazy things
I’ve been running for
Fast lane living sometimes gets too fast
Just can’t take it anymore

Come along with me babe, come on join the ride
Follow me down, if you got leaving on your mind
Come away with me, stay with me, break free with me
And leave those city lights far behind

Want to go out to the country
With you babe by my side
Want to make love to you out in the country
Underneath a great big sky
