Oh she's a good damn girl and she's pretty dressed up She rips my heart in two When she's so fierce and tough Yeah she's a good damn girl with straight long hair is down from Canada And someday she might be my northern star! Yeah She's my girl from the fair, in my spheres She's my girl with straight long hair And she's waiting all up the stairs Now won't you take my hand When we watch out for our fate Yeah for new days and nights to come And for the turn of a new decade Yeah She's my girl from the fair, in my spheres She's my girl with straight long hair And she's waiting all up the stairs So the priest has come to set a seal on our fate yeah when he opens his holy book I'm gonna see your face He says : „ If she's your girl then it's time to look deep into her eyes to make her smile an everlasting kiss is what she needs!“ Yeah She's my girl from the fair, in my spheres She's my girl with straight long hair And she's waiting to marry me yeah yeah! She's my good damn girl! She's my good damn girl!

Born in a dead ends town couldn't find the love on my ground felt lonely to sink Was bored and all alone with the one who I was in the city where I grew when there was no place for me to go So hey consider this it's just the morning diss you feel when you wanna disappear from all this shit And believe me you can treat me like whatever but this time I'm gonna leave 'cos I know I'll just make it When this world is not as heavy as she seems to be When this world is just ruled by gravity that makes you feel Slowly to sink... This one is for Martina, she will be 4 weeks gone to the United States on a plane Back then we were having fun and drinking wine, and girl you know, you made me feel all sane Don't give me certainty, come on give better a little bit uncertainty in the one, in my songs, who I am And just believe me, you can treat me like whatever, but this time I will not leave 'cos I know we'll just make it When this world not be as heavy as she seems to be When this world is just ruled by gravity that makes you feel Slowly to sink...

When I stranded there at Geco Beach You were standing there, smiling at my feet 'Cos they were burnt all to red But you took care of me like a girl from the south west In Castellabate, down in Santa Maria Yeah where we met first time, you stole my heart With your smile, you lightened my stars I never felt this home before when it's night and dark my dear Alessia South from the Amalfi Coast we were drivin' down, down these endless roads And we listened to Sean Paul Hold on to the dream, we were screaming out loud Down to Agropoli where you went right to school I bought this six string, to let my love grow Went to the beach and wrote this melody You might never hear it babe, but I know that you will be free by the storms at sea In Castellabate, down in Santa Maria Yeah where we met first time, you stole my heart With your smile, you lightened my stars I never felt this home before when it's night and dark My dear Alessia, you should know I will miss you real hard But one day I will come back to hold you in my arms when the days turn red when the days turn red my dear Alessia

The day is done and you've been working hard You're sittin' at the fire place to start To ignite your smokin' peace pipe When you watch out at the ocean when it's night Oh far far far you have come You've rolled your stone away where ya from Now now now ya made it clear You can stand on your own with no fear 'cos you've rolled your stone far away far across the ocean waves yeah you've rolled your stone far away behind the sun where I'll meet you one day Now won't you take a walk with me outside So we are surrounded by starlight And you blow me a kiss and I'll bring you the sun When you show me the star you're coming from Cos far far far you have come You've rolled your stone away where ya from Now now now ya made it clear You can love with arms wide open with no fear 'cos you've rolled your stone far away far across the ocean waves yeah you've rolled your stone far away behind the sun where I'll meet you one day

Meant To Be 04:41
Out on my road, ready for to go miles miles away from here I've got to leave my inner fears Out for to set my aims ready to accept the one who I'm So I'm walking down my way trying for to save all these good old dreams of mine Always gonna keep them in mind So you can't hold me back my spirit is set carved in the sands of time now I'm gonna make you mine When the west wind blows me out to places unknown so I wanna see the world to know my life is it worth to live my life as it's meant to be with thoughts all free Once I had a friend down from Marocco he might never know he changed my point of view But I won't pretend we split up again but one day we might meet again in a castle that is made of sand So I'm walking down my way trying for to say hello to the friends of mine I'm always gonna keep you in mind When my home is behind and the world is ahead and there are too many paths too many paths to tread When the west wind blows me out to people unknown So I wanna feel the earth to know my life is it worth to live my life as it's meant to be with thoughts all free Wanna live my life as it's meant to be, with thoughts all free

There she's sittin' on a chair and she smiles so I know that she might care for the dreams I've got to share Oh her legs, long they are, and her eyes shine beautiful like stars blue diamonds from the far So come on with me and take me as I am, I show you the world in her beauty at my hand When we sailing west to reach the holy land of New York's coast side, of New York's east side Cos you gonna be my girl, you gonna be my girl, you are my New Yorkian Evenin' Star Cos you gonna be my girl, you gonna be my girl, you are my New Yorkian Evenin' Star Won't you come with me to heal my scars? There she's walking down the line and her skin is shining softly brown like brown sugar washed in ice And she's dancing like a devils sin While she sings in rythm proud and tall I'm free like a bird of the night So come on with me and take me as I am, I show you the world in her beauty at first hand When we sailing west to reach the holy land of New York's coast side, of New York's east side Cos you gonna be my girl, you gonna be my girl, you are my New Yorkian Evenin' Star Cos you gonna be my girl, you gonna be my girl, you are my New Yorkian Evenin' Star Won't you come with me to heal my scars from the dark All I need is what you've got right in your heart But my eyes to blind to seek your trust when I'm in your spot All I need, all I need is what you've got right in your heart But my eyes to blind to seek your trust when I'm in your spot Cos you gonna be my girl, you gonna be my girl, so you are my New Yorkian Evening Star!

I woke up in a world of misery 'Cos I didn't know how it should used to be When airplanes shoot up with their wings of liberty But down on earth nobody seems to be free 'Cos our once so clear symbols fade like the black oil into the ocean waves Like the dove in the sand and Mr. Tambourine Man God we walk along a foggy shore and the red pale sun seems to draw a warning sign on my road again Will I say it was in my hands? When Volcano Fires sweep through the earth and the people might see it's such a shaking world When the sea bed roars and a monster rises You will trust me when I say we are bound to fall In such a brave new world we are livin' in Have we forgotten the things that we used to do when we were young, watchin' the moon beneath the sun So stop starin' on your Iphone there's so much time that you lose for the world outside, she's in need for you to fight 'Cos we – the youth of modern times – need a newspeak to turn the things alright May we overcome war, drift and foolish pride 'Cos we've built our world on driftin' sands, and if we don't change, she slides through our hands have we forgotten who we are in world that's made of scars In the skin of mother nature, deep they are When Volcano Fires sweep through the earth and the people might see it's such a shaking world When the sea bed roars and a monster rises You will trust me when I say we are bound to fall /2x When Volcano Fires sweep through the earth /3x You will trust me when I say we are bound to fall In such a brave new world /2x we are livin' in

When the world was born in ancient times and we were not there, even there back then And no guns, and no smoke to break the night And no machinery to rule the skies Then you might know all we do might be wrong And you might know our existence ain't that long But will we change or offer us for even more Will there be justice or blood at my door When the world falls... When the sun is breakin' with daylight and reveals a shattered world in hazy side Iron walls and cold neon light endless corridors of broken human life Then you might know all we do might be wrong And you might know our existence ain't that long But will we change or offer us for even more Will there be justice or blood at my door When the world falls... When the world falls... When the world falls... You know I'm right, you know I'm right When the world falls... oh will we breakdown, will we breakdown oh no oh no oh no come on now!

Waterworld 05:43
The world is in need for a change as I'm drifting through these lonely lands to sing my last lament 'Cos you know that something's going wrong as we watch out to the ocean gates but see just black foam so you might know... we will fade but where I cannot say away into the ocean waves but one day we will feel all blamed but then it's just too late, we'll watch our stars all fade Into a future, that's not shiny bright and strong we might living in a castle under massive water tons Into the ocean, yeah where we're dragging down Into the deeps of a waterworld with no sound We will fade... So will the quants set the seal on our fate? When we find out we want more and more but that's not nature's state So you feel like there is nothing you can change You’ve gotta serve this daily automat but don't know who is there to blame Maybe all these stars who love their selves a lot in their narcissistic blinded lives on TV, Web, their lies But don't feel ashamed for their stupid games 'Cos a hard rain's gonna fall down their golden halls Into a future, that's not shiny bright and strong we will be living in a castle under massive water tons Into the ocean, yeah where we're dragging down Into the deeps of a waterworld with no sound We might fade... Into the future, we're dragging down to our limits with nothing underground accelerating like the universe into the dark, upon our race 'til our birth in a waterworld....

about

Praise for Newspeak:

"Goedecke [..] emerges as a fierce talent on Newspeak who bridges the divide between nostalgic anthemic rock and contemporary indie-rock charm." - MIKE MINEO, Obscure Sound

"Well, I can honestly say I’ve never heard an album like Max Goedecke’s latest album Newspeak. It has the same haunting euphoric effect as Post Punk bands such as Echo and the Bunny Men with the soaring Classic Rock riffs of the iconic 80’s acts such as Tom Petty, and Neil Young. Yet, the styling is nothing but contemporary. There’s almost infinite diversity written into each of the 10 tracks from his debut album, each of the tracks flows with its own brand of veracity, from punchy Garage Rock to rhythmically Blues Rock.

The Cologne based artist, proved his talent as a multi-instrumentalist on perhaps one of my favourite tracks off the album ‘Meant to Be’ which takes you right back to the 80’s Throughout the album I couldn’t quite get over the slight (amazing) reminiscence between Goendecke’s vocals to Alt Rock artist Jack White which is most obvious in the second track on the album ‘Slowly to Sink’, until he breaks into the more predictable raucously cacophonic Rock vocals." - AMELIA VANDERGAST, A&R Factory, 27th April 2018


The road to NEWSPEAK was a long way for Max: growing up in a steadily rising indie folk-rock scene in the rural area of Cologne, Germany, with local acts such as Tom Allan and Mario Nyéky, Max released his first 3 song Demo EP Tas Phania in 2013. His childhood friend Phil – who also plays drums on Meant To Be – introduced Max then to the producer Wolfgang Feder, who is an established household name in the acoustic audiophile scene with acts like Richard Bargel.
After producing first demos of Behind The Sun – which can be found filmed on Youtube – Wolfgang realized that Max was looking for a more punchy rock sound. So, they ended up that Wolfgang would do the mastering of NEWSPEAK and provide Max with constant feedback. Max released 1st demos of his record in 2017 to reach out for local feedback and to found a band around his songs. He ended up with Lisa-Marie Bruynen on drums and Marco Kazmierczak on bass and together they played fierce shows at local clubs such as Blue Shell, MTC – both in Cologne - and Druckluft in Oberhausen.

NEWSPEAK was then released by Ditto Music on the 25th March 2018. Except Meant To Be, Max played on this record all instruments and also did the mixing and recording job. Though it’s heavily influenced by late 80ies songwriters and acts like Tom Petty, Guns N’ Roses and Neil Young, it has also modern influences from the Philly indie scene like Kurt Vile or british songwriters such as Ed Sheeran and Richard Ashcroft.
