about

The Dues Winterthur, Switzerland

A long time ago, Rock ’n’ Roll was a promise and a way to rebel against the conformities of society. Rock ’n’ Roll was revolution. Rock’n’Roll was freedom. The Dues from Winterthur bring you back to exactly this time.
The Dues call their music Heavy Rhythm ’n’ Blues, and with this expression they hit the nail.
Straight into R’n’R paradise!

Track Name: Ghosts Of The Past
we are born with the will to live
but nobody requires that you do
you’re trying to serve the purpose
which nobody pretends to you

so what will you do
with all the time that you have
all your decisions are depending
on what’s your mind made of

why do you worry about what will come
if you can’t know what’s right or wrong
you just got to move from your past
however you regret what you’ve done
you can’t know what will be at last
half of a chance is better than none

while looking into the mirror
I see ghosts of the past
all getting nearer
they grab my arms
tear my soul apart
ghosts of the past

why do you worry about what will come
if you can’t know what’s right or wrong
you just got to move from your past
however you regret what you’ve done
Track Name: Something For My Mind
I'm in a bad condition
for many years now
struggling my way
trough silly situations

I can not be what
you put in a frame
some say it will be different
looks it’s stays the same

I wanna know how it feels like
not Always get in trouble
know for what you struggle
it’s not in sight

something for my mind

I'm in a bad condition
for many years now
struggling my way
trough silly situations

I can not be what
you put in a frame
some say it will be different
looks it’s stays the same

free my mind
don’t treat me mean
something you don’t mind
free my mind
where have you been
something you understand

something for my mind
Track Name: Sails Of Misery
I’m a traveling man
on a ship on the endless sea
my journey has just begun
you’re a million miles away from me

on a crest of a wave I want to be
staring at the moon waiting for the sun
to come out would mean the world to me
start to do what has to be done

fade away into the deep
crawling back to set the sails of misery

loving you keep me away from dying
amongst the wave I see the silver lining
a shiver ran down my spine
but I keep on telling you that I’m fine

blame me for all I’ve done
save me from being numb

everything for what I’m living for
will let me fall on my killing floor

all across the universe
i’m looking for a what I deserve
find a way back to earth
at the second date of my birth
Track Name: Under The Sea
I'd like to be under the sea
so I wont be what I used to be
everything is different i believe
a million miles under the sea
dark blue rope drags me down
I am blind from now on

oh what you think you'll see
without your eyes
they're coming after me
but blind they'll always be
but i'll swim free
free I'll always be
million miles away
million miles under the sea

all I do
is not for you

you and me
had lived the same way
but now I've changed my mind and wont stay
you had asked
if it's worth to live
I said not with what
a human exists

for what it's worth
tell me what it's worth

I'm a million miles under the sea
Track Name: Love
never stopped believe in love
bit i never believed in a heaven above
love is always real
all the hurt i feel
but it kept me from falling down
this world is full of hate and greed
it would be better if love is all you need

let me feel love
with every heartbeat
if there's no lord above
all i need is your love

I'm not afraid to die
cause i felt your love for a long long time
I want you to know
from all the things you've done to me
the best gift was your love

let me feel love
with every heartbeat
if there's no lord above
all i need is your love
Track Name: Elements Of Doubt
easy to get in
no chance to find a way out
labyrinth of life has been
the element of doubt

losing my ability to trust
while I’m triying to find myself
labyrinth full of dust
put my book back on the shelf

the element of doubt
growing in my head
hack myself to death
there’s no way out

word’s once spoken
can’t be taken back
heart’s once broken
didn’t know how to react

if it doesn’t matter
whatever I’ll tell her
i’ll hold my silence
can’t hold the battlements
I’m her shadow
always have to follow
years will pass by
but she can’t hear my cry

hide myself in darkness
break myself in loneliness
souls were bound together
now they get shattered
it’s all about lying
in my time of dying
trust in my feelings
losing all meaning

find no way to say
what I’m feelling day to day
why I want you
to know what I’m going trough
you’re not able to stay
you will keep going your way
i’m walking in your shadow
always has to follow
Track Name: Somewhere
somewhere there's a place where I can find peace
a land full of misteries
many secrets underneath

but you wont let me go
holding me back for so long

and now look at me when I'm down and out
a body who dies of drought
just before a blackout

but you wont let me go
holding me back for so long

you only know
what you believe to see
you only grow
when your lies do so

somewhere
at sometime
you'll die without love

somewhere there's a girl who had took my heart
but soon we had drift apart
so I turned back to start

but you wont let me go
holding me back for so long

you only know
what you believe to see
you only grow
when your lies do so
Track Name: La Realidad
la realidad esta presidida la imaginacion
huimos en la imaginacion
y todo porque no puedes afrontar la realidad

tenemos razon de escaparte de la realidad
cada dia cada mes cada ano
cada hombre cada mujer cada nino
crece escuchando con los suenos
y muere con esperanza

este lugar no tiene nada que ver con la esperanza.
es suficiente Vivir sólo una vida... pero vivirla con imaginacion
el diablo siempre me ha fascinado
porque, parece mas credible que cada dios

que libertad
que garantia
que imaginacion
que esperanza
que realidad
que vida
Track Name: Ley Lines
it’s a pacing
who control your life
you shouldn’t take it for sublime
you can face it
make the truth to her surprise

lay your hand in mine
your eyes can see the time
counting down the end of the line
lay down on ley lines

it’s a crime
you had to hide your mind
this world is not worth your time
you better lie
as long no emotions run by
