about

Church Of Mental Enlightment Leipzig, Germany

The Church Of Mental Enlightment is a 4 piece groovy Proto-Metal/Blues-Rock Band from Leipzig combining motorbike riding tunes and infernal creepy riffing with a touch of fuzzed organ
and plaque preaching vocals. But the collective is way more than a band, they call their shows ceremonies and speak of ancient problems in the modern world and an unconventional
self led way out.

C.O.M.E. gather!

Track Name: Coffin Boogie
What is the problem
I am the problem
I tried to kill it
With booze and wine
Too many problems
Inside of my head

That feed me
That feed my fear

Ask yourself
Do you really need me
I know you can
Make it easily on your own

Believe me
You don´t need me

Please let me know
Who you think that I am
How can I help somebody else
If I can´t help myself
I can´t help myself
How could I
Help somebody else
I can´t help myself
Track Name: Ancient Problems
The more you give
The less they need
The less you have
Is the more they want
It feels like

The more you love
The less they care
The less you speak
Is the more they hear
It feels like

Oh, the world moves slowly
But can quickly turn around
It devours you softly
Drags you down to the ground
This demons appear
And they wish you well
But they won´t prevent
You from sinking in swell

These ancient problems are ever-present
And they are coming after you

The more you doubt
The less they show
The less you ask
Is the more they reach you
Now they´re coming

As the times are changing
And life seems unreal
It controls our bodies
It controls how we feel
It makes you feel cozy
It makes me feel sick
And the wheels keep turning
leaving you tricked

These ancient problems are ever-present
And they are coming after you
Track Name: Gravedanger
Open your eyes
We´ve got to dig deeper
We´ve got to move on in the presence of the reaper
Life ain´t easy the way that we chose

But it keeps us walking
Aware of the truth
Keeps us walking
Aware of the truth

Take care my friend
There hides danger in the treasures
The fear and sorrow that walk amongst the pleasure
Of life and death
Of hate and and love
Of space and time
Of laughter and grime

But it keeps us walking
Aware of the truth
Keeps us walking
Aware of the truth...

Of secrets and leaks
Of valleys and peaks
Of order and crime
Water and wine...

Gravedanger...

Our gravedanger
You´re my gravedanger
Oh, you´re my gravdanger
Track Name: Behind The Grey
You´ve got friends to call your own
But when you look around, no-one is there
They say there is someone above to guide us
But in the depth no path appears

What will you do when the wolves run the streets
Will you reveal them or bow for your needs
Modern-age traps occure in different ways
And the sharks in law-suits hide their teeth behind the grey

What will you do when you meet your masters
Will you follow or will you revolt
Get on your knees to climb a ladder
Or burn your body for supposed hold

What will you do when the wolves run the streets
Will you reveal them or bow for your needs
Modern-age traps occurs in different ways
And the sharks in law-suits hide their teeth behind the grey
Track Name: Alley Cats
We are like Cats in the Alley
Straying around
Searching for shelter
Chasing cover
Homeward bound

Where will you go
When the night comes
And you´re alone

Where will you go
When you´re knocking on friends doors
But nobody is home

We are like snakes in a valley
In fear of the sky
Pursue freedom
Beg for help
From a book of lies

Where will you go
When the night comes
And you´re alone
Where will you go
When you´re knocking on friends doors
But nobody is home

And darkness feeds your soul
You wish yourself at home
But there is no place you can call save
The journey must go on
You surely find the one
To bed beside and love
