about

L383N Munich, Germany

L383N - German: le̱·ben ("LIFE")

Who are we?
We are two. Voice and Instruments.

What´s it like?
We grew up in the 80ies - that´s more or less the nostalgic point of view. Though we use modern technology our influence can be distinctively heard all over our songs. We prospered in a time before the net.

What´s our point?
We have depth. We have color. Born in darkness we head towards the light.

Track Name: Resurrection
Sleep, sleep
It´s easier for you when you sleep
And maybe you dream and maybe you die
It´s up to you!
So follow me, follow me down
To the river and to the black sea
Through the wasteland
Do you feel free?
To the garden of fire
Do you remember?
This is the road to nowhere
This is the dry land

From the depths of my darkest hour
I will rise again stronger than before
From the valley of shadows - I will return

And here - the tower, look up
Can you see its top? No! You can´t
´cause this is the final straw
This is the center of nothing
And this is your new home now

From the depths of my darkest hour
I will rise again, stronger than before
From the valley of shadows - I will return
I do not fear your presentation
I do not fear your prophecy
I´ll cross the river and the dry land
I know my way back to the light
Track Name: With You
There is chaos around me
But I will survive
Poison inside me
But I´ll sweat it out
There is madness around me
Everything´s gone crazy
But I will cleanse myself - with you

There is temptation
but I will resist
There is weakness inside of me
but I will be strong
spit out the unclean
I´ll wash the dirt out my soul - with you

And if they deny - I will confirm
And if they doubt - I will believe
And if they destroy - I will create
And if they die - I´ll live forever!
In you, in you, in you

They think they are clever
They explain everything
with evidence of their limited senses
with Science and Technology
But there must be more than this
I`ll walk with you,

Faith is the key that comforts my soul
You are the source of virtue
I´m weak but you are my strength

The chains that bind me, I will break

And when I fall, I fall in you
´cause, You are the source of virtue

Virtue conquers all
Track Name: 10.000 Arrows
We are the chosen ones
We are the knights of a new time
We believe in life and the grace of god
And nothing will stop us
to realize our dreams

With my love on a
flowererd meadow
With my sword on the battlefield
With my work wherever it may be
I swear I always give everything

10.000 Arrows
To your heart

Remember when
we`ve dreamed about
all the glorious adventures
Even when we fall, even when we fail
At the end we win, - we win with him

So, chivalry is still in us
It´s an higher state of being
To sing for my lady, to fight for my values
Wherever! - Wherever I may be


To sing for my lady with a rose for a kiss
To fight for my values wherever I may be
To write the poems of my glorious deeds
To fight with the dragons
wherever they may be
Track Name: Leben
Vieles, so vieles – erschien uns so einfach.
Wir haben gelacht – wir haben geweint
wir haben geliebt – und wir haben gelebt
Und das war’s dann auch schon?

Du denkst, dass Du schläfst?
Du denkst, dass Du träumst?
Doch um Dich herum ist kein Tag
und ist keine Nacht
Nur die Lichtung am Ende des Wegs

Du hast die Nacht gesehen
Hast Du das Licht gesehen?

Noch einmal – LEBEN!

Wie viele Gedanken hast Du gehabt?
Die Sinne befriedigt, doch immer noch blind
„Sterben - Schlafen -
Vielleicht auch träumen?
Wir wissen es nicht


Du hast die Nacht gesehen
Hast Du das Licht gesehen?

Noch einmal – LEBEN!
Track Name: Let Me Go
The scene shows the actors
On this stage of fools
The music starts to play
And we´re ready for the dance
We play our part with passion
For as long as we can
We dream of heaven
but toilsome is our life
Let me go!

I wander through the desert
Without water and hope
Day by day I´m searching
But I can´t find a way
It´s a hunger of the soul
Not of the body
And who will feed me
When I`m lost in despair

I cannot deny what I´ve seen
I cannot deny what I have dreamed
I cannot deny what I feel deep inside
I see you in everything
I cannot deny what I believe
I cannot deny what I am
I cannot deny what I feel deep inside
I feel you in everything
Track Name: A New Hope
A hopeless world - without truth and faith - will rot in itself
We pray to machines and worship our vanity
Fear leads to hate and hate leads to suffering
Open your eyes and open your mind
Out of the darkness – Into the light!

A new hope will rise - a new hope will heal
A new hope will take away the pain
A new hope - illuminate our minds
A new hope will free our fearful hearts

No I can’t still reach you. But I know that you are there
No, I can’t still be with you – But you are everywhere
You surround me in all forms of being
We are different. And yet we are one
Just look around and feel the power of all living things
This life is just a dream
And a real Life is waiting for us

A new hope will rise - a new hope will heal
A new hope will take away the pain
A new hope illuminate our minds
A new hope will free our fearful hearts
A new hope will come - a new hope will help
To understand the truth of light
A new hope will show the way of deliverance
A new hope will be victorious

And what is dead will be reborn
Because life - is eternal
Track Name: Why Carry On
The man in the mirror - looks at me
Who is that person? - And what has he done?
The man in the mirror - smiles at me
How many am I? Or only one?
Is this face - the face that I know?
Is this life - the only one that I live?
What is the sense - of all of my tries?
What does it mean - when the mirrorman cries?

I think the man - thinks too much
and he will lose himself - somewhere
between impressions - of a cheap world
And it seems the man - is more than one
He looks to the others - from another perspective
He doubts himself, but he does not doubt - to the one

“Doubt thou the stars are fire,
Doubt that the sun doth move,
Doubt truth to be a liar,
but never doubt....
I´m yours”

Why carry on - when it is too late?
Why carry on - when all hope is gone?
Why carry on - when darkness comes?
I will go on - because of you

Why carry on - when nothing counts anymore?
Why carry on - when all values failed
Why carry on - when weakness comes?
Yeah, I will go on - because of you
Track Name: Love Is Life
Love is life and life is love
That is what you´re teaching us
All in one and one in all
That´s the way and that´s the plan
It´s just a change of energy
From shape to shape and through all the times
Matter comes and matter goes
But you will stay through eternity

Deep inside me I can hear your voice
It´s getting clearer - every day
Thine hand rests upon my shoulder
and I can feel thy confidence
And when I doubt because I´m weak
And all my senses fade away
If I get lost in my despair
I shall not fear my final day

And when we fall thy net will carry us
And when it´s dark, thy light will shine
And when the winds blow, thy house will shelter us
So, I will not fear anything
No, I´ll not fear!
Anything
Track Name: More Than This
The space between our lines
The time that runs away
All that we have missed
will never come again
It seems, that’s all my friends
And there will be no more
But I know there’s a chance
The very last of all

Despair in the face of death
The fear of the unknown
“The undiscovered country
from whose bourn no traveler returns …”
All the doubts and fears
All the dreams and hopes
are meaningless - because
There must be more than this!

We crawled out of the mud
and we rise up to the stars
Nothing can stop us now
and nothing can break us apart
As long as we have trust,
as long as we have faith
We will be strong
and we will be invincible!

Can you feel it?
Can you see it?
Can you hear it?
Can you be it?
Track Name: The Living Land
Our depart from nature
secession from the source
We´d stepped up on the ladder
of progress „sans recours"

We prey upon the land
like pleages of locusts
We rise our killing hands
to bleed the whole world white

The living Land is arround us
The living Land will feed us
The living Land will cure us
The living Land will save us

How long does it take, until we realize
We are all made from one!
How long does it take, until we arrive
We are all made from one!

To gather more than rivals
To show supremacy
Crowding out our next kin´
Is common sense in companies

We concentrate on profit
And maximize our yield
Our loved ones became assets
Who cares – a lot of casualties

The living Land is arround us
The living Land will feed us
The living Land will cure us
The living Land will save us

How long does it take, until we realize
We are all made from one!
How long does it take, until we arrive
We are all made from one!
