about

Experienced best at one of their sweaty, excessive, and often out of control live shows, chromatic BLaCK is not a conventional band, but a project that combines music, performance, and visual art. Lead singer, Daniel R. Mueller, is a DIY artist who combines audio, photos, and video to create unique multi-media pieces. The resulting hybrid of both analog and digital traditions is both rock ‘n’ roll and a synthetic sound collage. Defying easy classification into standard categories and genres, the work must truly be experienced first-hand in order to be fully understood.

Track Name: Scream and Shout
Slipping out into this life
so are you ready are you ready are you ready to survive
no you're not until your first scream
which wakes you up from your dream
you are naked you are bloody you are shouting out loud
now you can breathe there's no doubt
your first scream provides toy with air to live
but screaming has much more to give

we gotta scream
we gotta shout
we gotta scream

you learn to walk you learn to talk
communicate like a barking dog
we need emotions to feel alive
what do you do when you;re cut with a real sharp knife
when you are happy excited angry and sick
have a girl riding on your stick
then show what this is all about
be wild be loud just scream and shout
Track Name: Alright (Cos Nothing is Alright)
I see it coming but I will not stop it
not stop the shit i'm about to run into
run into my next disaster
why say disaster and not adventure
i'm an adventure addict
my life's an adventure playground
my toys are sex drugs and this sound
I see it coming and all I say is

Alright alright
Alright alright (Cos nothing is alright)
Alright alright
Alright alright (fuck all is alright)

Life's so short so don't blow it
blow it means what - I don't know it
I just know I want to feel some
life's not supposed to taste like old gum
I say everyone everyone to his taste
cop leave me alone I will not change
I don't harm anyone anyhow
it's time for you to see it's

Alright alright
Alright alright (Cos nothing is alright)
Alright alright
Alright alright (fuck all is alright)

I got a feeling crawling up to my soft brain
being alive feels so intense like a hot pain
I feel so good so bad but nothing in between
I can watch chemical reactions rule my emotional regime
extreme cos it's real and not a dream
extreme can not control it's too extreme
extreme this is the climax of extreme
extreme the price is high but

I don't care about the price
I will pay this price
I will pay any price for the feeling of being alive

Alright alright
Alright alright (Cos nothing is alright)
Alright alright
Alright alright (fuck all is alright)

Track Name: Do You Wanna
Fill your lungs with forbidden gas
empty the glass shake your ass
let the music conquer your body
be my hotty let's get naughty

Four the takeoff count down
three reality shut down
two feel the spot I found
one I gonna gonna
I gonna hit your ground

Do you wanna
do you wanna leave this world alive
so you gotta
gotta risk a trip with me tonight
do you wanna
so you gotta
do you
so you take the risk tonight

Blood is rushing in the right direction
let's start the action a chain reaction
your body is a slave to your obsessions
lose all discretion give into passion

Four the takeoff count down
three reality shut down
two feel the spot I found
one I gonna gonna
I gonna hit your ground

Do you wanna
do you wanna leave this world alive
so you gotta
gotta risk a trip with me tonight
do you wanna
so you gotta
do you
so you take the risk tonight

feel here and now without explanation
all concentration on penetration
the way is the goal the goal a big explosion
in slow motion emotion devotion

Four the takeoff count down
three reality shut down
two feel the spot I found
one I gonna gonna
I gonna hit your ground

Do you wanna
do you wanna leave this world alive
so you gotta
gotta risk a trip with me tonight
do you wanna
so you gotta
do you
so you take the risk tonight

We wrestle and hit like in a serious fight
I make you forget who and where you are
reality is gone we ride a shooting star
my sudden stops make you beg for more
your juice is the key for all of your doors
you take it and take it like i use a knife
tell me baby have you ever felt more alive
Track Name: Under Pressure
I go to bed and start to calculate
how many hours of sleep goddamn it's late
life's so much shorter than it seems
there's never enough time not even in your dreams
always under pressure from the thing called time
and wasting time once done is like a committed crime
but when is time wasted and when is time not
don't think about it and time might stop

I got my time I have to spend it
I got one life I cannot extend it
I got dates I got appointments
I got plans with and without sense
I hear it tickling tickling tickling all the time
the seconds fly fly they keep on flying by
and while my lifetime go go goes down the drain
I waste time searching for the plug it's insane

I'm under pressure
under time pressure
always under pressure
so I live my life in the fast lane

I got my age I have to befriend it
I got one end I cannot pretend it
I got dreams worth working for them
I got needs need time to satisfy them
the world is rolling rolling rolling rolling all the time
the years fly fly they keep flying by
and while my lifetime go go goes down the drain
I waste time searching for the plug it's insane

I'm under pressure
under time pressure
always under pressure
so I live my life in the fast lane
Track Name: Human Animals
Our skin is shaved and soft
but the hair keeps growing back
we are clean and smell so good
but it's not us it's the soap we use
we communicate with everyone
so many languages to speaks
unser streben gilt den schonen kunsten und der musik
so monkey around to that beat

We are x3
We are still apes now
We are x3
Human animals

We have no natural enemies
all out wars are man-made
we are at the top of the food chain
millions of us starve to death
we can plan for the future
nature would object is she could speak
we developed high-technologies
to present you these fucking beats

We are x3
We are still apes now
We are x3
Human animals

we are still apes
primitive apes x3

We are x3
We are still apes now
We are x3
Human animals
Track Name: Asshole in the Mirror
Eyes open up i'm back to life
fuck I would be better off dead
my brain gets hit hit with a knife
afraid to move I feel so bad so goddamn bad

Good morning asshole in the mirror
look what you did to me last night
you got all that you wanted
I feel death so much nearer
that was no party but suicide

like a zombie without a soul
my body worked but my brain was dead
goddamn what was my goal
the few memories feel so bad so goddamn bad

Good morning asshole in the mirror
look what you did to me last night
you got all that you wanted
I feel death so much nearer
that was no party but suicide

Let me tell you about last night
about booze girls and fist fights
how I drowned my soul in alcohol
and how I lost control
about the one and the only aim
get fucked up and go insane just go insane

Good morning asshole in the mirror
look what you did to me last night
you got all that you wanted
I feel death so much nearer
that was no party but suicide
Track Name: Stay on Holliday
Stay on holiday
feeling here so free
look around and see how life should be
sinful relaxation the whole day
and all commitments seem so far away

I wanna stay on holiday
I wanna stay on holiday
going home no way I wanna stay
Leaving my old life far behind
never going home I don't mind

Feeling here so fine
here you realize work's a crime
adventure-seeking girls everywhere
my hotel room is big so why not share

I wanna stay on holiday
I wanna stay on holiday
going home no way I wanna stay
Leaving my old life far behind
never going home I don't mind

No more dirty dishes enjoying eating out now
always sleeping in I don't need a watch now
no phone answering and no email spam now
my room gets cleaned I live in hotels now

I wanna stay on holiday
I wanna stay on holiday
going home no way I wanna stay
Leaving my old life far behind
never going home I don't mind

Stay on holiday I wanna
stay on holiday
Track Name: Night Time
when was the last time
that you messed around
with the ugliest girl in town
when was the last time
that you ran out
the cops behind you
cos you were guilty no doubt

I don't know the date
but I now the time
It was late and dark
and we sang

It's night time
lets lose control
it's night time
let's feel the rock' n 'roll
we get bad we get mad
our morals drop dead
when darkness spreads its anarchy
everything gets possible
It's night time

when was the last time
that you were not to blame
cos everybody else also went insane
when was the last time
you felt no shame
standing naked in a street and screaming

I don't know the date
but I now the time
It was late and dark
and we sang

It's night time
lets lose control
it's night time
let's feel the rock' n 'roll
we get bad we get mad
our morals drop dead
when darkness spreads its anarchy
everything gets possible
It's night time

I don't know what you think but
the night's my favorite time not just for a drink
It's time for love crime and for loneliness
time to break rules and principles

tomorrow we'll clean up the mess
let's lose control let's feel my rock' n' roll
let's lose control let's feel my rock' n' roll
let's lose control let's feel my rock' n' roll

It's night time
lets lose control
it's night time
let's feel the rock' n 'roll
we get bad we get mad
our morals drop dead
when darkness spreads its anarchy
everything gets possible
It's night time

getting bad mad bad mad
Track Name: Cos We Are All Spiders Caught in Our Own Web
I get tapped on my shoulder and turn around
there stands my Destiny and tell me he found out
you would be much happier if you could realize
to question everything in life is not very wise
he introduces his daughter Luck his wife Coincidence
together we're the family on which your life depends
how you feel what you do we're the ones who decide
so don't you blame yourself just enjoy the ride

So why
why oh why
is there no why
is there no why is there no why why is there no
cos we are all spiders caught in our own web
riding along Destiny's back
while Coincidence is paving our way
together they are God and just for Luck
for Luck we pray

he asks me
who decided where and when you were born
who your parents are and when you feel forelorn
that was never in your but in our control
accept your programmed matrix you innocent soul
I answer hey mister mister Destiny
I wanna be free and I wanna stay free
so so i cannot imagine putting my life in your hands
especially when bitch luck seems not to be my friend

So why
why oh why
is there no why
is there no why is there no why why is there no
cos we are all spiders caught in our own web
riding along Destiny's back
while Coincidence is paving our way
together they are God and just for Luck
for Luck we pray x2
Track Name: Too Primitive for Intelligence
We can see see it on the news every day
too primitive for intelligence
we keep on doing it anyway
we use it without any sense
it's so hard so hard to confess
too primitive for intelligence
that we know all about about this mess
about this self-made mess

It's a long proven fact
humans destroy without any sense
but we do not stop
we are too primitive for intelligence

think about destroying environment
too primitive for intelligence
should we really be proud of what we invent
we use it without any sense
we ask who is now to blame
too primitive for intelligence
why not blame the evolution
why not blame the evolutionary shame

It's a long proven fact
humans destroy without any sense
but we do not stop
we are too primitive for intelligence

money kills all sanity
too primitive for intelligence
how much worse could it be
we use it without any sense
social problems the climatic change
too primitive for intelligence
we could change but we do not arrange
arrange a fucking change

too aggressive for intelligence
too stupid for our intelligence
god religion terror war
no hope for a change anymore
Track Name: No Reason
I've got no reason why I just killed you
but that's what my government told me to do
hey you tried to do the same
what they call war seems like a game
my country's leaders challenged yours
let's play for your oil reservoirs

We got no reason
we got no reason to kill for you
we got no reason
we got no reason to die for you

how has it work for such a long time
war is the biggest organized crime
with lies they made us join these wars
with patriotism to fatherland whores
dear soldiers you're used to make money
like our bees produce sweet sweet honey
honey for the rich

so if I have a son I'll tell him not to leave
not to sell his soul to any country's chief
not to kill not to cry not to die
just for you
you are lying you are lying you are lying so bad
that people still believe in you makes me sad
utilize religion like so many before
you open up the door to hell
with
your
fucking
war!
