about

Modern Saints Bielefeld, Germany

Modern Saints is a 3 piece from Bielefeld dedicated to lo-fi / post-punk in the vein of JAWBREAKER / THE THERMALS. The band formed in 2013 and shortly afterwards released their self titled debut 12″ (Coffeebreath and Heartache, Shield Recordings / Hectic Society), followed by a split 7" with Boston's DAN WEBB AND THE SPIDERS (Gunner) and a self-titled EP in 2016 (Fond of Life / Shield / Hectic). ... more

Track Name: Time Keeps On Slipping
Would you tell me again what is it that we’ve gained,
rushing through our lives, we'll never seem to make the time.
We’re good at pretending we’re aiming somewhere.
In the end all directions only lead to one end.

All these years just go on the shelf,
filed up with a million pictures we took.
As if we could make time stand still.

If the way you spend your time
makes you feel more dead then alive
then i guess it’s time for a change.
The days you knew in coulours
quickly fade away and turn into grey.
I guess it’s time for a change.

All these years just go on the shelf,
filed up with a million pictures we took.
As if we could make time stand still.
All these years end up on the shelf.
You better grab this moment before it’s gone.
As if we could make time stand still.
As if you could.
Track Name: I Hope It Shows
A million hopeless souls
speaking their hopeless minds.
I gave up years ago.
I don’t wanna turn into a bitter wreck,
but I think I’m on a good way to get there.

Don’t let them tell you how to feel and how to act,
who to love and who to be.
No one could ever say.
I don’t think they’ll ever change.
Narrow minds have a tradition.
I wish i could learn not to listen.

They’ll never learn.
They’ll never know.
I’m not gonna grow used to them.

Trust me, it’s all they can do.
There’s no hope, it’s what they settle for.
Dull lives in a mad mad world.
I don’t belong.
I hope it shows.

Don’t let them tell you how to feel and how to act,
who to love and who to be.
No one could ever say.
I don’t think they’ll ever change.
Narrow minds have a tradition.
I wish i could learn not to listen.

They choose to be part of the problem,
and I’m getting tired with complaining.
We'll never fit their views
and I couldn't care less.
I hope it shows.
Track Name: Not A Care In The World
Leave this place to the bandits and thieves,
to all the greedy and hateful, apathetic and numb.
There’s nothing left here for us.
Just cover your ears and eyes.
I tell you, they’ve already won
and theres nothing you can do.

Maybe I don't know a thing,
but there's something I've learned.
Nothing's ever changed and nothing ever will.
If it wasn't for the simple reason
that some things matter to me,
that some things do make a difference,
I'd have given up hope by now.

All the wrongs in this world.
We’ll never seem to get it right.
Keep on doing things just because.
While everyone around doesn’t seem to have a care in the world.
Not a care in the world.
Track Name: Quit Your Prayers
Whatever you hope to find
Whatever comes our way
Wherever we go
Whatever our age
We’ll always stay who we are.

We'll always see with our own eyes.
Never second guess,
we’ll find our ways.
Quit your prayers,
trust in your hands and eyes.

Growing up and they’re giving in,
losing sight of their hopes and dreams.
A simple rule.
Keep your heart,
it’s never a losing path.

There’s so much more.
We’ll go and never look back.
I’m never gonna lose my trust in this,
we'll always stay like this.

Plain as it seems.
This one life's all we have.
Let's live it like we mean it for once.
Could we
Track Name: Face To The Wind
“Chase your dreams while you can, soon enough you won’t find the time.”
Never knew what i wanted to be, always sure it wasn't much like them.
Way back then we’ve had all the answers.
I’m older now. Whatever that means.

I don't know what’s waiting for us in the years to come.
No one really does, so i guess we’ll just take it as it comes.
Turn your face to the wind and leave all the weight behind.
Never stop, never look down.

Moving on is the only way.
And to this day there’s always been a way.
Track Name: Unlearn
Dust is all we’re going to be.
Tell me what’s the point
in taking ourselves so fucking seriously.
A crack out in space, just floating through time aimlessly.
There’s no greater sense in life. Just live.

Hate is all we are.
Stupor all i see.
We’re gonna have to unlearn
all we’ve been raised to believe.

There’s no such thing as fate,
religion’s all a lie.
Pass it on to your kids,
so the sham never dies.

All that we do makes who we are.
I pledge not to follow.
What’s the point, I’d rather see for myself.

As we slide through our days and years.
Let go of all you’ve ever heard.
It’s all been revised and rearranged.
Would you ever stop and think,
not in their paradigms, but for yourself.
