Space 03:22
Space Standing on a chair in space gazing at the stars I'm feeling old What has become of the boy who dreamed of being an astrounat, Who wanted to discover it all? I still wanna know why we can't get enough Isn't there, isn't there space for all of us? I still wanna know why we are so scared Isn't there, isn't there a share for all of us? A silouette of hope projected on the globe A silent scream in my head: «Let it go!» But it's so damn hard when you gave it all. I still wanna know why we can't get enough Isn't there, isn't there space for all of us? I still wanna know why we are so scared Isn't there, isn't there a share for all of us? Let me Let me take you here You gotta see the view You'll love the view I still wanna know why we can't get enough Isn't there, isn't there space for all of us? © Graber Flavian

Okay 03:42
Okay In the belly of the whale Waiting to be spat out Kinda lazy weirdo quality time Where did all the fish go? Dream of sunshine in your face Inhale the taste Where did all the fish go? It's okay, You don't have to worry It's okay, There's no hurry to be on the bright side of life to rest in peace In the valley of death Waiting to dry out Inclined to sell your soul for a drink Where did all the fish go? Sunshine in your face Inhale the grace Where did all the fish go? It's okay, You don't have to worry It's okay, There's no hurry to be on the bright side of life to rest in peace We all hurt We all fail the ones we love We all bet on the wrong horse Every once in a while © Graber Flavian

Camouflage Entourage You're trying hard to make a scene Camouflage You're busy baking glamour cake Blancmange all over your face The sergeant and Grace Hold me tight, like a child Make me better, make me right You hate the way you treat yourself Sabotage Ran out of cigarettes and friends Mirage solely the sky The sergeant and I Hold me tight, like a child Make me better, make me right The sergeant took over, spit in a circle Pissed in the lake of your decent mind Crushed the cake and spoilt the party/night I don't wanna know what you're talking about You don't wanna know what I'm talking about You tidy up, erase the tape Montage I'm sorry for being late (again) Entourage © Graber Flavian

Fires 03:43
Fires Where do we go from here? Was home ever a place? Where do we trade our fears If not by the side of a sleeping child? Take me higher Take me up I wanna see them fires I wanna see them fires We're driving down the highway of life A hundred miles per hour Still you keep nagging on Are we there yet? Take me higher Take me up I wanna see them fires I wanna see them fires We've felt it coming all along Blinded by the beauty of a tired song We're wasting most of our minds Worrying about things that we cannot hide Until reality hit the fan Reality hit the fan Take me higher Take me up I wanna see them fires I wanna see them fires © Graber Flavian

Fancy 03:03
Fancy Show me your favorite colour Play it loud so that the voices in my head get lost about Show me your favorite tree Let's rest there for a while in relativity of time Fancy you Fancy you The way you talk about the universe and us Tu es en vacances Tu es le soleil Take a walk at the shores of your mind Talking to a turtle for the very first time Listening to the Beach Boys singing The tune we used to humm when we couldn't fall asleep Fancy you Fancy you The way you talked about the universe and us Tu es en vacances Tu es le soleil © Graber Flavian

Happy Birthday Coincident Coincidentally we've taken the same drink and train The same drink and train There you are Lost for words Still it hurts A hitchhiker through the galaxy Through the galaxy A pilgrim on the lookout for a God Who doesn't face the picture we've been painting The picture we've been painting This pumpin in my veins and in my chest Is all and nothing about me All and nothing about me Now we're finally talking It's not what we've planned Bring out the discolights And wish everyone A happy birthday Certainly We're never quite certain, but do we need to be? Do we need to be? What if we found out that we don't have a clue Would you still trust me? Would you still trust me? Now we're finally talking It's not what we've planned Bring out the discolights And wish everyone A happy birthday © Graber Flavian

Eric The Bird When you're on your own, how long do you wait Until you start to create imaginary friends? How long do you wait, when you're on your own? Like Eric the bird Who flew all the way Down to Africa And all the way back To eventually find out that everyone (else) is gone When you're on your own, how long do you wait Until you start to create imaginary friends? How long do you wait, when you're on your own? Like Eric the bird who had everything prepared For the day of their return Who catched some extra for dessert The ones that Joe likes the most Day by day and worm by worm When you're on your own, how long do you wait Until you start to create Imaginary friends? How long do you wait, when you're on your own? © Graber Flavian

Self Pity Jackass I want to run and hide somewhere in a corner of your art I was never afraid, never ashamed of failing when I gave it all Still it's not easy to be easy when pride eats up the walls When you're not as strong, not as tough as you wished and your breath tastes of bitterness Beauty of today blow me away Through the eyes of a child Through the taste of the wild I'm a self pity jackass having the time of his life I want to seek and find comfort in the arcade of a labyrinth Where it's not about a business plan but the dinner we prepare for tonight I've always been fond of the people who don't pretend to know where they're going I rather be a better dreamer than a patient pretender: «Réver, c'est le bonheur; Attendre, c'est la vie» Beauty of today blow me away Through the eyes of a child Through the taste of the wild I'm a self pity jackass having the time of his life © Graber Flavian

about

We Invented Paris «Are We There Yet?»

We Invented Paris are releasing their fourth album «Are We There Yet?» today. It is available exclusively on their website, presently limited to one month only. The album is downloadable digitally on a name-your-own-price basis.

Since 2010, Flavian Graber unites various musicians and artists in his band We Invented Paris, reinventing his music as they go along. After the release of three albums, each flaunting its own style, having headlined several tours through Europe and having experienced the birth of his second child, Graber knows how to play to his strengths: he wrote an album with tunes that go right under your skin and make the world stand still for just a moment. His songs ring with our world’s unanswered questions and wrap listeners in their timeless sound.

«Are We There Yet?»

In a temporary studio installed in his childhood home high up in the Swiss mountains, Graber recorded this album working with Janice Beach aka Yannik Sandhofer of the Soundhofer Institute who not only played the role of guitarist, but also mixed and produced the album. They took Graber’s sister’s camper for a spin to Karlsruhe to track Konstantin König’s drums. Joël Fonsegrive is responsible for the album’s irresistible bass lines and Andreas Achermann contributed by playing on what must be Berlin’s oldest and most majestic upright piano. The choir in the song «Self Pity Jackass» was formed of good friends and acquaintances old and new who happened to be on the scene more or less coincidentally.
Unlike its predecessor, «Are We There Yet?» returns to an approachable, fragile sound, while staying refreshingly nonchalant.

We Invented Paris are taking their new album «Are We There Yet?» on their «Tour d'Entourage» this coming spring. Tickets are available starting today.
