Album Reviews & Awards

“Favorit!” 10.6 / 12- Dark Spy Magazine

“Everything slightly dirtier, darker and more intrusive...there’s so much in here, and some cracking tunes as well as stirring melancholy. If you have taste you’ll get this.” - Mick Mercer

“The songs are in perfect harmony with each other. It sometimes sounds like they just used the best from all their influences.” - Side-Line Magazine

“This album announces Zeitgeist Zero as the premier Industrial rock act in the North of England...This record is a grand testament to the hard work of a group who have never felt
limited by their style or genre.” - Sphere Magazine

Album of the month in Dark Spy Magazine No.31 Sep’09.

Radio Charnel House named ‘Party for One’ their favourite song of the year in 2009.

about

ZEITGEIST ZERO Leeds, UK

Alt-wave rock and eerie macabre pop, fusing sultry female vocals with dark,
twisted electronics and a determined attitude.
This is a place where dance driven alternative rock, electro-goth and fuzzed up psychobilly
bed down with seedy art-house eroticism and jazz-era glamour.

Track Name: Heart To Black
Heart To Black

So many people, so little purpose
Speak without thinking
See with out focus

It hurts, be ashamed
Stupid phrases bring such pain
Times have changed
Lies fade, the truth remains

Can’t think of something good to say
Then don’t open your mouth today
I’ve heard the biased jokes before
And I can’t stand it anymore

You turn my heart to black
Your words are poison

Sticks and stone may break my bones
Track Name: Party For One
Party For One

I feel like I’m at a party for one
The guests have gone and there’s no more to come
The food looks good it looks such a treat
But it’s not my taste and there’s nothing I can eat

How does it feel to be loved?
I wouldn’t know I’ve always been alone
You! You’ve been adored
I’m just ignored
That’s why I feel like I’m at a party for one

Somewhere someone’s having fun but it isn’t me, it isn’t me
Somewhere someone’s laughing, is it at me? Is it at me?
Track Name: It's Not Easy Being Strange
It’s Not Easy Being Strange

This is no playground for the Dead
Nowhere to go to, is this the end?
We are the misfits and the strange
We are not dead just ignored instead

It’s not easy being strange
I can’t help that I despise all of the sunny skies
It’s not easy being strange
It’s never trouble free, seeing the world differently

This is no playground for the Dead
We are the freaks walking down your streets
Sinister slander dogs our days
Trapped in the remnants of a bygone age
Track Name: My Heart (Has Left The Building)
My Heart Has Left The Building

At the end of your life what will you say?
“I wish I’d spent more time having fun each day”
Was all of the joy, you ever knew, ever to last?

My heart has left the building today
I wanted to join it but it told me to “stay”
Now I’m sitting here with an empty head
Has it left forever, has it turned to lead?

Gone away, gone away, left today
Gone away, my faithful friend

I heard my heart say
“We are slaves, we are slaves, it’s in the hard times
we feel the chains”

If I had some money I would track it down
Take it on a trip all around the world
Can I give it the happiness it’s never found?
Is this a phase, am I a clown?

At the end of your life what will you say?
“I’m ready to leave these human chains”
Was all of the risk and all the regrets worth the trial?
If I followed my heart to where it wants to go, can
I trust it to keep me from the cold?
Will all of the pains bring great gains and will it
come home, to me again?

Gone away, gone away, left today
Gone away, my faithful friend
Track Name: The Broken
The Broken

Open and waiting, the broken have taken,
over this insane world
Elite and greedy, keep us desperate and needy,
with distracting mediocrity

Propaganda flicks play their dirty tricks and
rewrite our past, as memories play forgetful tricks
by making us believe
The news today says they’ve taken our, freedoms away,
to save us from, the evil ones, that hurt us yesterday

On our screens, mesmerised, another catastrophe
As disorder and crime, put fear in our minds
Corruption hides in lies
Impersonal days where we have no time so much
is so fake, as toxic blights and electronic eyes
invade into our lives

So many wonder where it all went wrong
Too many born to the stupid and young
Wolf pack mentality, it tears apart at you and me
Sold and mis-sold what we just don’t need
Is this progress or is this greed?
Wolf pack mentality, it tears apart at you and me
Track Name: Grudge
Grudge

You look out through narrow eyes
Do you know enough to despise?
Take confidence for arrogance and think that
I’m a fool

My story would make you cry, but my eyes are a
long time dry
And what I say in private isn’t what you’ll hear
outside

Don’t you see it’s fantasy, we’re all insecure inside
You hate me because I seem to have the things that
you can’t find

Don’t you see it’s fantasy, we’re all insecure inside
You hate me because you see the things that you
can’t find

Self pity is not for me and I’ll say “I’m doing fine”
Because I don’t want to share what’s on my mind
Track Name: Big Bad Wolf
Big Bad Wolf

Red leather girl, met wolf man in the woods
They held hands and they smooched
And they smiled

The wolf said, “I shoot silver bullets, silver bullets
when I make love, so let’s get to it, let’s get to it”
The wolf said “I shoot silver bullets, silver bullets,
see how big and bad I can be!”

He whispered in her ear, many dirty things, that
would scare grandma should she ever hear
And they smiled

Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf ?

The wolf man growled “You’re the one”
Let’s howl at the moon, we’re children of the night
And they smiled
Track Name: Caress
Caress

Come Mr Darkness, give me your kiss
I’m longing to hold you and feel your caress
Come Mr Darkness can’t you see?
I don’t know how to meet you, you must
come to me

Sweet violet breath and the lily incline
Of the slumberous neck as it mimics the mime
In rhythm, in step to the toll of the rhyme
The curse of each day forever unwinds

Everyday I dream about you but that just
makes me feel blue

Come Mr Darkness I’m looking my best
I’ve straightened my stockings, put on
a black dress
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, it’s only
you I can trust

Sweet violet breath pressed onto the page
Tangled in sheaves that strangle the days
Tomorrow, tomorrow and always to come
Fate in the wings forever undone

Everyday I dream about you but that just
makes me feel blue

Tomorrow, tomorrow, forever, undone

Sweet violet breath iced to the pane
The crack in the crystal, the flawed refrain
That echoes and splinters and drifts to the wind
Tomorrow forever, forever unpinned

Everyday I dream about you but that just
makes me feel blue

Come Mr Darkness, give me your kiss
I’m longing to hold you and feel your caress
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, it’s only
you I can trust
Track Name: Dance Of The Fallen
Dance Of The Fallen

Blink away fantasies or fall into insanity
Double lives of truth and dreams were never,
ever, meant to meet

Can’t touch it, can’t taste it, but you can feel it

Carnal flesh tethered to a mind that will never,
ever be satisfied

The wheels have fallen off this daydream, it’s
spinning, faster, in the night
Can’t touch it, can’t taste it, but you can feel it
It seems so real but it’s all in your head

Waiting for a day that cannot be, that will never
become a memory, of love affairs and daring deeds
and satisfying every need

Can’t touch it, can’t taste it, but you can feel it

And if a dream was to come true, would it, be
just as good?

All in your head

Even though it’s sad to find comfort in an imagined life
Reality is just too tough, a state of truth that’s never good enough
Make believe it dulls the ache of all the humdrum time awake
Track Name: Unlucky 13
Unlucky 13

On the thirteenth day I arrived
Unlucky city in violent times
The people I met were cruel and kind
They gave me love and a blackened eye

Success and happiness I’ve never been blessed
Luck and money are strangers to me
It’s hard to get along, I guess I’ve always been
Unlucky 13

I got so tired being called a liar
Told how useless and selfish I am
I walked a minefield of rage
Trapped in a cage, I’ll never be able to break

You’ll never know the disappointments I’ve had
Broken promises and lies I’ve been fed
You’ll never know what it’s like to be
Unlucky 13
Track Name: Blood
Blood

There’s blood on the microphone
Desperation breathes inside
Suck in your feelings and give a big smile
There’s a new wave we can’t seem to ride
Why is everything so difficult and takes so much time?

There’s blood on the microphone
It’s the sweat of insanity, bitterness of reverie
There’s blood on the microphone, the loneliness of lunacy

Everybody’s talking about the next best thing, that’s twenty
years old as we’ve forgotten how to think

There is no time to change our mind
I’m called ‘Dead’ because inside I’ve died
Will we be recognised
And everybody who couldn’t see
How much it’s meant to be
Will they be right or will we?

There’s blood on the dance floor …
