about

It's been a tad more than a year, since singer-songwriter Silver Birch hit the scene with his heartwarming debut song «Yourself». Now his newest camber-pop gem «Still The Same» radiates a timeless elegance. It's a slow, soulful state of limbo we're in. Amidst laidback guitars, lush synths and a piano with a patina we find Patrick Lerjen's warm voice, taking a hard look at how we're not immune to malice, but have to try being the good guy on a daily basis.

lyrics

We heard the stories
It was hard to take in
How men were capable
Being so cold and inhumane

But we walk the same floors
Bang on the same walls
We blame the neighbors
And look the other way
When they‘re coming for them

We breed we go to war
Some die some move on
We hide and rewrite
Entertain and then some

And soon we forget
It‘s us it’s not them
We might seem so modern
But we‘re still the same

We call them monsters
As if they were a different breed
Make sure to distinguish
Between us humans and the beast

But we share the same choice
And all we can try
Is decide to do right
Over and over again
And when they‘re coming for them
Over and over again

We breed we go to war
Some die some move on
We hide and rewrite
Entertain and then some

And soon we forget
It‘s us it’s not them
We might seem so modern
But we‘re still the same
We‘re still the same oh

Oh we‘re still the same
