BIOGRAPHY
Fall Sparks is the debut album of the Rotterdam band 'A Berlin Heart'.

On May 14 1940, the city center of Rotterdam was almost completely destroyed by German bombers during the Rotterdam Blitz.

In the decades after the war a new city center rose from the ashes and the debris; a new heart, providing a blank canvas for innovation, experimentation and creativity. A raw but vibrant breeding ground for architecture, art and music.

A Berlin Heart is a nickname for an artificial heart used in medicine. You might call the heart of Rotterdam an artificial heart as well, forever connected to Berlin by history. A Berlin Heart, a fitting name for the birthplace of this band.

We are A Berlin Heart

Track Name: Gentle Storm
LYRICS:
Gentle Storm

The frames in your picture are all I can see.
This static momentum is everlasting
as white teeth are consuming.
The scars in your face are telling me your story.
So loud, so clear.
Your message arrived on one of those hurtful days.

It sure will show them how broken you were, how fragile you turned.
I’d wish you think twice and pick up your notes.
Cry a new letter for me.
Straighten your bones.

Your message arrived on one of my hurtful days.
A simple reaction on a cry you wrote.
It made you numb
Forced to fight.
Full of hate.
Anxious to step on the ledge.

Our useless endeavors were never a loss to me.
Track Name: The Lucky One
LYRICS:
The Lucky One

Rip my eyes out
Here comes the widow maker
Straps me in
Ready for battle

Some last advice
To kill my mind
He knows I’m in need
Pride through sacrifice I’ll reap

Soon the loophole will appear and the red eyed will use it
We’ll weep, All tragic
Some last advice
To kill my mind
He knows I’m in need
Pride through sacrifice I’ll reap

So this will be the day I’ll breath
I made a list, I took a picture
So this will be the day I’ll breath
I made a list, I killed a clover for you.

Black eyes, white lies, wet hands, sharp ties, choking, bruising strains, open wide.
Breath life.
Lost pride, gain heart.
Sacred love, it’s all a ride
Nothing to own
Just to hold on.
Track Name: Death and Honour
LYRICS:
Death and Honour

I sleep to forget my hunger and dream of awakening in a landscape,
so bright and peaceful
Where silence is deafening and shadows remain.
Procreation of my burden.

I can't wait for the rain to pass,
So i'll keep on walking towards the great wall.
To conquer and claim.
Where blood is sacrificed.
All casted from ivory
Procreation of my burden

"Home"

Procreation of my burden
All I trust is my emperor
A final reckoning
In death and honour I'll sleep tonight.
Track Name: King
LYRICS:
King

Rising from the dead
Seems so easy when
you know you have lived
before you burned.

All this make believe
Gets me through this life
This life I cherish
Threshold I survive

This is what we need now
This king he claims to be
Just a longshot at fame
While drooling eyes play

All this make believe
Gets us through this life
This life I cherish
Threshold i survive

Sure we play along
It swallows us whole
The pulse of silence gives in as we speak
We play amongst the weak
Fake another sign
Die amongst the fire
Every time
Now realign
Track Name: The Swallows
LYRICS:
The Swallows

Come floating down my spine.
As if it failed to be
Most of me relies on these little moments
In a way
I'm not to be feared
At least I pretend
What you see is all I am.

It never feels familiar
Drugged by you
The swallows overheard me
Whispering your name
Rendering each step
As I try to find where we collide
Everything splits
And so I'll see through

I'm not to be feared
I just pretend to be your suffering angel
It’s so tiring trying to get you home

I'll take the blame
I'll pay your way
I'll be your troubled boy
As long as you will fight your way home

So tiring tryin' to prove you wrong
Like a stray I forget all the hollow rounds we left.........buried underneath

I'm not to be feared
I just pretend to be your suffering angel
It’s so tiring trying to get you home
Track Name: Crash

Track Name: Words
LYRICS
Words

Parts of me spread around
Vital pieces I try to find before I die, before I wake
And suffocate in breaths I take
I'm not asleep but still don't see a trace
It may
All be too late
Or just awakening

Like your words kept me distant
It kept me alive
wondering what it would be like to leave it all behind
In all my efforts
In all my tears

There's no time to weep
And still spells to break
None will rely on faith
For this is mine to mould

There's still time.....like your words

Like your words kept me distant
It kept me alive
wondering what it would be like to leave it all behind
In all my efforts
In all my tears
The hurt remains.
Track Name: Poisoned Apples
LYRICS:
Poisoned Apples

All I never prayed for came barging down the door
In essences I never felt.
It left me no choice but to give in
And defecate all the poisoned apples

Shit I'd die for
Got me spinning
While pale black shivers burned my skin

Cold as the storm it will break
Becomes one step ahead
Learn to be a better man
Save what’s left to save before it's us to blame.

Strung out on the sane side
Never to kill a promise
Just a second chance to repeat the encore
All we fought for is all we've got to regain
Just a second chance to repeat the encore.

Cold as the storm it will break
Becomes one step ahead
Learn to be a better man
Save what’s left to save before it's us to blame.

This shit i'd die for
Got me spinning
While pale black shivers burn my skin.
