Welcoming 04:37
She marked you from the others Got down and kissed you on the head This is a toast to progress Past the point from which it came But you're looking past that Now you're in a new place He will keep you from that which you once had known We will learn to wait What are we doing with our bodies? It's about the quietness and welcoming back when we've lost it About the quietness and welcoming back what we've lost
Walking 02:11
Give my excuses to myself Bring them out for all to see But where are we now? “Living here in this” Alone then, but not revealing to ourselves Celebration of the one We danced in the light Surrounded by everything But I am walking through Your spark of light It glimmers on, it shines
Interlude I 01:11
Breakthrough 04:18
Break what is holding it back Is it me? What do I lack? With words to completing sentences They fall in and out again Are you away from your home? Time has passed you by We'll stay where we are for so long Like a dog that licks its wounds We used to build up to the way we thought our lives to be Now living is not the same Circles never-ending I am looking for the light Through all of this there is only one place to be You're the only one
I have seen you before There is no special plan And if I would have been I would take your advice I would take your advice We move slow Like some first night And while we're alive And while we're alive We might go To the light Someday you'll love Maybe I might And we are all just killing time We are all just killing time
Interlude II 02:00
A New Season 04:47
You were running towards it And your words were cracking on the ice I did not recognize it I did not realize that "I am alive!" And I am Fall came slow You were there It's getting harder to see From where I am And I want you to feel me right now through this If there is no other way And some distance is longing to feel free Some distance is aching to be free And some distance is longing to be free And some distance it longs to feel free Fall came slow (I lost cause) You were there
Save Copy As 03:17
You wrote it there in scrawling hand Even in our foolishness we are guaranteed protection We're seeking comfort in our homes Familiar and we know Everything goes and nothing stays And I should not hold on We are becoming Tender and bright in the cold Strength remembers how we're hoping against hope And wisdom is justified by her children


This 8 song EP is the first release from German Error Message. All songs were written and recorded by Paul Kintzing in an upstairs bedroom in Louisiana, except for “Welcoming”, which was recorded by Jake Winters in an antique shop. He also played the clarinet, saxophone, and keyboard.
