Canoe 02:31
This is the journey of a man who left everything to be himself He left his house no goodbyes got in a boat full of hope Started paddling started paddling down the river of endless dreams As the current got faster waves crashed in as the current got faster waves crashed in he started struggling So let it go and become a new soul (free from hate, free from hate) So let go of everything you know your heart won't break down by the riverbanks just take a chance and you will see no more misery As he got pulled under the water the man in the green parka he saw the light through the surface it touched his soul, he fell apart and gave into his serenity and his new home and as his mind raced to find the answer all he could hear was “welcome home”
Seasons 03:26
So they found a body by the waterfall a man in a parka they called it a suicide but I know it's one big lie So how can we trust in cowards with narrow minds the weather has changed and I know, I know it's time I know a place where we can be free I know it´s hard to see but please trust me So they went to the cabin in the woods to watch the seasons change through a filthy window frame Weeks passed and everything was fine months came und brought new change (new change) But then came the day his idealistic ways fell apart and he broke her heart oh broke her heart 'Cause he wanted to go but she whispered "oh no" So he left her in the cabin in the woods to watch the seasons change through that filthy window frame She went to the river sat by the water to watch its graceful flow as nature opened up her soul In her mind new words began to form changing every fibre of her current soul and transcending her from being a stranger in a mass to being together with nature at last And she stepped into the water let the current run through her now step into the water and be free
Waterfront 03:09
These train tracks lead nowhere I can't recall where I come from either detached and out of place no needle left in my compass Compassion's dead I've decided to part ways with my former life erase all my tracks photographs, credit cards How can I be proud of what I built with my own two hands if it's not built on solid ground? How can I see the beauty outside of this barren concrete flat if my eyes are hollowed out? They're hollowed out Call it naive and call it a wreck this is what I believe in Call me naive and call me a wreck label me New train tracks lead here  and right here where I stand there shines a light it shines brighter than your eyes will ever bear to see so I'll fix this wreck put it back to water and sail off to foreign and uncharted lands let the wind of courage be my vessel for I am my own compass I will sail through the night until dawn So let me go I will sail through the night until dawn
Wolfmouth 03:34
You say to yourself I have to move on new cities, new people, new love and new life And you say to yourself this life, this world is wondrous and I can't go on wasting it on depressing thoughts and an empty heart I've got wanderlust I've got wanderlust And you change from a beast to a wolf running through the city running through the country finding new ways to define yourself a new world opens up in front of you and all you have to do is get up and go just get up and go And with every new sun and every new moon your soul finds tranquility So start trusting in yourself as you're no longer lost on the road of finding new love So don’t look back you found new love this is what you were looking for Now your heart is pure so stay the course it's your cure it´s your cure This life is grand yet we waste it like trash throwing it all onto the streets we don’t fight anymore for what we believe in we sit in the darkness thinking this is life but believe me this is hell oh this is hell this is hell this is hell And we are the wolves we are the wolves not running in packs separated from the rest we are separated We crippled ourselves so long ago and fell in dark and deep hardships and as we burn our bridges we are truly and utterly lost

Chiefland Göttingen, Germany

Away from it all! Into a self-created landscape that leaves the barren behind
and opens up new roads. We all live through sorrow and try to escape from
reality. We all feel the pressure of day-to-day routines, life, love and death.
Chiefland combine these feelings with heavy guitar tunes and melancholic
storytelling – stories about love, loss and a new beginnings in a bleak and twisted world.
