it all starts with words, confidences all of them, single parts, were designed to fit in abstract cells of a unique building unorganised and obsolete, programmed to habit their aetheral void of spleen paradoxal universe, infinite dead space with tents or shelves as walls and ceilings _ run, go to these places and meet the ones we'll let down set our camp, we're the hunters of their continuous space weapons of our own, new tactics to share, we evolve in their world that never changes datas in highways, messengers and pages, we read through the lines that we're missing the faith trust our engine and drive the way that distances us from their ever setting days _ bail, run from the towns, the ones we were belonging to go to these places and meet the ones we'll let down we bail

it's in our mind: nothing changes we drove far beyond the grids of the ancient coast which is haunted by the seeds of deep hopes they woke up this morning, and they'll grow fade in time fall asleep lay your head low and close your eyes they need it, they love it, machines of sleep there, these are the moments we shared, gone through places we've lost where no one else will ever reach such motions in time and emotions and tastes but caught by the haunted, not every word is coming right not all the noises are heard in their right phases these are the ghosts we fear, these are the ghost we fear, these are the ghosts we fear - the ones driving along our chariot these are the ghosts we fear - wheels and chairs, engines and tires windshields and mirrors, driving backwards - these are the ghosts we fear machines of sleep, mellow and silent, glowing in dotted white lines yeah, machines of sleep

speed up the time, break the door and rush don't miss our last chance, remove the covers unleash the beast and get out the case, rush ! all our heavy load, all the shit we brought, fear ! this will blow your ears this will ruin our shoulders _ let us shade the sky we're back in the plug-in cities landing on the roof of their houses modern wooden sheds, fountains and terraces we've seen everything all their empty roads, all their shopping malls, fear ! they will bore our minds, they will burn our heart _ let us shade the sky we're back in the plug-in cities we convey the clouds we're back in the plug-in cities

waters, deep waters never take me alive we'll ever sing the same lifelong song we'll never change a goddam word no way we heard that a war will start above our heads we're writing the story of modern lovers

how could it be simple - to find a way to tell impossible things - ? distances don't get smaller, maps never shrink, may you wash them like bed sheets we won't be there in time for there is no one there waiting we have hairs on our foreheads, arms and legs, teeth and ears they'll stay healthy for years to come for we don't use them for real we belong to the ever sleeping youth and won't wake up until we're gone from here we vanish and reappear, counter-clockwise - we're magicians it's already been told, we told you about the shuftan experiences well, who would have guessed that this process could hurt ? we freeze the time and eat the road, all of us float above the ground rockers and speakers, highway dreamers, octane drinkers, the homewreckers we're employees of the month and we're so proud of our job what are we good for - to export ourselves this far ? are we earthians ? earthly pleasures of self-contemplation we'd love to watch now for we stay long after you're done to each his own souvenir of epic memories we might not remember of tell us more about yourself, remind us of your name, feedback us, amplify the story and we will speak the truth, another invented language of our own you never heard of anyway, now's the time to start telling impossible things, the whole odyssey as we don't forget that at the end of the day we might be closed close friends with a distance. we will keep our secret. you will keep your distance

your face is lying there it's time to let if float it's allright to say the truth it's fine you're everywhere now's the time to face the impossible thing the whole odyssey to return home discover no one's there and face the evidence no soul is waiting here for us we heard random noises and joyful laughs this scene can't be real for we're on a set this movie is our nightmare and we should wake up
10.
giving the problem another name it stays the same yeah: it stays the same showing the world another face won't make it change you remain the same you're all the same you're all the same you don't fancy our ideas that's not something we're sorry for there is no answers in our guide you sweet little things see your bookshelves as the world you won't leave them before you die never forgive you'll never forgive your shattered mind will never use the hidden words behind the walls you left these ones aside they'll only become games odd games in your words eachoneisaway tolie phrase or notion smoke and signs pure digression hailing from the skies

what are we good for - to export ourself this far ? are we earthians? earthly pleasures of self contemplation we'd love to watch now for we won't stay long after you're done come back whenever we can what are we good for - to export ourself this far ? are we earthians? _ are we earthians ?

Commuters is the first full-length by the unconventional Swiss trio Coilguns.

Commuters was entirely recorded live, every song in one take. To challenge themselves and as a stance against "email albums", several musicians have been invited to take part in the recording process, including Keijo Niinima of Rotten Sounds / Nasum fame, who came down to Switzerland to lay down guest vocals on one track.
