  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    This CD includes all 8 songs of your beloved album "8-bit lagerfeuer". It comes in a nice and shiny black tin can with viewing window. Every song has a song sheet with cover art of its own made by awesome german comic artists. So you don’t have to buy 8 CDs we decided to include all these variant covers in this one item: Just place your favorite cover art on top or rotate them on a daily basis. There's one more thing: The CD itself looks like vinyl. (Just for the looks, you know? Can’t be played on your turntable.) Anyway: Manufactured by ourselves. Made with love. Order now!

    Includes unlimited streaming of 8-bit lagerfeuer via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

sometimes your mind is so buggy you pray for a clean install.


deep deep down
deep down inside
there's an error in my mind
i need need one
i need someone
to control the things inside

operator, i need an exit
operator get me out of here
can't you see
i don't want to be
i don't wanna be controlled by fear

i want to be a machine
checking all my systems on a 7 inch tft screen
listen to me, listen to me, listen to me
can't you see
that i wanna be, i wanna wanna be a machine
