about

KOJ Münster, Germany

Three musicians. Two brothers. One married couple. This is KOJ. Together they give life to a sound that is full of contrasts, sometimes roaring, untamed and raw, as the ocean that inspires them, other times delicate, fragile and minimalistic.

Track Name: Gold
I was headed to the gold rush
I was looking for some riches in the sand
Dug my hands deep into mudlands
I was looking for stones to spend

All we have is gold

I was living on the sidelines
waiting for live to pick me up on its way
When I should be looking for my freedom
Oh, it’s nothing that gold can replace

All we have is gold
All we have is gold

And I thought it would keep getting better,
would keep getting better
And I thought it would keep getting better,
would keep getting better
And I thought it would keep getting better,
would keep getting better
And I thought it would keep getting better,
would keep getting better
Track Name: Deep Waters
If you go down to where you shouldn’t be
Let the waters catch you in their breeze
Run down, run down to that little tide
Run now, run now, run now for your life

If you go down to where you shouldn’t be
Let the waters catch you in their breeze
Run down, run down to that little tide
Let the waters hold you deep inside

You can run with the winds
Try to hide from the waters you fear
You can gaze to the stars
Pray to gods that will never hear
But you can’t hide, hide
Hide from the truth from the truth
no you can’t hide hide
when deep waters are raging in you
no you can’t hide

Dark of night and trembling with the winds
Hear the waters roar beneath your limbs
All that’s left now is for you to decide
It’s a slow fall till you hit the water line

If you go down to where you shouldn’t be

You can run with the winds
Try to hide from the waters you fear
You can gaze to the stars
Pray to gods that will never hear
But you can’t hide, hide
Hide from the truth from the truth
no you can’t hide hide
when deep waters are raging in you
no you can’t hide
Track Name: Runaway
Life is calm and life is still
There’s no magic and there’s no thrill
All I want is to run away
to whatever is ahead of me

Life it gives and life it takes
Oh, it‘s such a wicked game
All I want is to run away
to whatever is ahead of me

So I’m calling to the sea
Won’t you come and rescue me
from my lonely, lonely life
Nothing here to satisfy

Life is all we’ve ever known
Soaring high and falling low
All I want is to run away
to whatever Is ahead of me

So I’m calling to the sea
won’t you come and rescue me
from my lonely, lonely life
Nothing here to satisfy

Runaway, runaway, run away
Track Name: Ocean
Take this life or leave it
'Cause it’s all forgiven
Now you go and throw it all away
What is it to you anyway

So you’re gonna walk over water
or you’re gonna drown in the ocean

Raise your glass to lost things
Had your fair share of it
So you go and drown it 'til you’re numb
What is life without a little fun

So you’re gonna walk over water
or you’re gonna drown in the ocean
Track Name: Who I Am (feat. Hannah Epperson)
Who I am please do not change it
Take the pieces, don‘t replace them
Oh, my bitter heart you’re chasing
Take the pieces, don‘t replace them

Oh, oh, oh, oh
I’m raging, raging

Oh, oh, oh, oh
I’m raging, raging, raging

Who I am please do not change it
Take the pieces, don‘t replace them
Oh, my bitter heart you’re chasing
Take the pieces, don‘t replace

Oh, oh, oh, oh
I’m raging, raging

Oh, oh, oh, oh
I’m raging, raging

Oh, oh, oh, oh
I’m raging, raging

Oh, oh, oh, oh
I’m raging, raging, raging

All that I‘ve ever been
Has been thrown to the winds
And I see it all, I see life before me

Who I am please do not change it
Take the pieces don‘t replace them

Oh, oh, oh, oh
I’m raging, raging

Oh, oh, oh, oh
I’m raging, raging

Oh, oh, oh, oh
I’m raging, raging

Oh, oh, oh, oh
I’m raging, raging
Track Name: Black Night
Hey there, hey there it’s nice to, so nice to meet you
But you’re not the kind to keep, no
So I look and stare to deep now
Cause you‘re not the kind to keep, no

Yeah, I‘m running in the black night
And I‘m hoping that the light won‘t catch us

I saw you standing in the corner
Dark spaces make you feel light as you told me
Should have known that you‘re not the one to hold, no
Because you’re a runner

I thought that we could be free
Running in the black night
I thought that it could be me
Running in the black night

Yeah, I‘m running in the black night
And I‘m hoping that the light won‘t catch us
