about

Seit 2009 wendet sich die Band mehr dem Indie-Pop hin. Mit Matthias Schleyer kommt ein Schlagzeuger dazu und Sänger Tom Gavron spielt jetzt selbst Piano. Tom Gavron & The Symphonics und ihr Stil Cinema-Pop sind geboren.

2011 ist Tom Gavrons Welt immer noch ungewöhnlich und das zweite Album „Happy“ kommt heraus. Die Musik von ihm und seiner Band ist jetzt kompakter und kompromissloser.

Track Name: Frost
I like the wintry nights with freezing storms of snow
All the ground is hard as stone
The world is in a slumber with dreams that never end
Waiting chimneys still are cold

It’s still my time to go
Go out through the snow
My body needs the cold
My body needs the pain
That runs through my veins

The stars above shine brightly on my frozen face
All my thoughts drift away
In front of me appears a great landscape of ice
With tales of snow and icy lakes

It’s still my time to go
Go out through the snow
My body needs the cold
My body needs the pain
That runs through my veins

I have lived the warm the dry and the moderate skies
I embraced everything but lights
And when you ask me what I really need
I need those frosty nights

Now I’m sitting here in an air conditioned room
Waiting till the sun goes down
I rarely go outside, there’s no hope for us
The climate change devoured my beloved frost

I have lived the warm the dry and the moderate skies
I embraced everything but lights
And when you ask me what I really need
I need those frosty nights

It’s still my time to go
Go out through the snow
My body needs the cold
My body needs the pain
That runs through my veins
Track Name: Happy Earthling
All in all I’m a happy earthling
I drown my sorrows in my shopping car
I have a nice and decent little family
But I prefer my ornamental plants

At night I bath in pills to become sleepy
By day I nod and smile to everything that was said
I love my chief and all his different mood swings
That I have to manage day by day

Oh Lord, take me away from here
To another scene I don’t like this storyboard
I need another plot I need another life

Honest life is just a hire purchase
And I had to take a part of it
So if you want to step in my shoes
Please don’t get it on, stay in bed

Oh Lord, take me away from here
To another scene I don’t like this storyboard
I need another plot I need another life

All in all I’m a happy earthling
All in all I’m a happy man
All in all I’m a happy earthling
Track Name: My Ship
My ship was sailed into a land
Were the bad was good and the good was bad
As we arrived we had to fear that maladies still lived in here

Suddenly there was the girl with tear stoned eyes and rheumy nose
She took my sense and she took my heart within her mind so far apart

And every day I swear I will search for her
As long as the moon is yellow silver
As long as this world goes on

And still my heart is missing you
Track Name: Mania
I saw you there you’re beautiful with your Siamese smile
You are the shine in some people’s eyes before they blew themselves up to destroy
Outside the August moon lights up the street. Inside a couple of men
Prepare roadside bombs to kill the unbelieving grin

Every moment I go down the street
I feel a shadow is following me
Full of fear I turn around
But there’s nothing I see
I feel a shadow is following me

As autumn leaves fall on the street a noise disturbs a peaceful day
A window smashed and I run outside where the air smokes grey
Alarm and screams escape the dark I search for the surviving ones
As I try to free some from the ashes I noticed someone points a gun

Every moment I go down the street
I feel a shadow is following me
Full of fear I turn around
But there’s nothing I see
I feel a shadow is following me

Sleepless dreams have filled my life
I try to catch them
Yet they’re gone away too soon
Sleepless dreams have filled my life
Sleepless dreams have filled my life
They’re gone away too soon

I see you there you’re beautiful but as you walk across the street
I don’t realize the risk it was the death I’m going to meet

Every moment I go down the street
I feel a shadow is following me
Full of fear I turn around
But there’s nothing I see
I feel a shadow is following me

Every moment I go down the street
I feel a shadow is following me
Full of fear I turn around
But there’s nothing I see
I feel a shadow is following me
Track Name: Spring
Seasons come and seasons go
I lived my live in dreams like castles in Spain
I stood on a street and it was winter
And as I crossed it suddenly there was spring

Clouds keep on moving
Years passed by
Leaves are fallen
But love didn’t come my way

I took a train and saw the world
In all its different colours that surround me
I laid my head down in the sand
And the ocean sang its song for me

Clouds keep on moving
Years passed by, bye bye
Leaves are fallen
But love didn’t come my way

Every time I played the clown
Every time I was the dream dancer
Dancing through the centuries
Every time I played
But never found my love

Seasons come and seasons go
I lived my live in dreams like castles in Spain
I stood on a street and it was winter
And as I crossed it suddenly there was spring

Clouds keep on moving
Years passed by, bye bye
Leaves are fallen
But love didn’t come my way

Clouds keep on moving
Years passed by, bye bye
Leaves are fallen
But love didn’t come my way
Track Name: Travel Song
Travel, travel song travel all night long
Bring this message home I will come back soon
A message for the trees which have already lost their leaves
A message for the skies I have still survived

I lost myself in the open see
With gloomy shadows that covered me

Alone I lost my way back home

I dreamed that you’d be here
See me for the last time
For the last time

Travel, travel song Travel all night long
Bring this message home I will come back soon
Track Name: Tango on the Streets
Dog dirt on the sidewalk
Scorched dollars in a pool of sick
Beggars with happy faces are dancing
Tango on the streets

And the leaves fall as they do every year through this filthy air
I know the ship isn’t sinking yet, it only moves a bit
The show must go on, show must go on

Game shows raffle
Education to the poorest guys in town
Soup kitchens are no longer able to
Feed the masses which grow

And the leaves fall as they do every year through this filthy air
I know the ship isn’t sinking yet, it only moves a bit

Many people say, many people say that it had always been
Like that, always been like that, always been, many people
Say, many people say that it had always been like that, always
Been like that, always been, that’s why they don’t realize
On second sigh it could be you

Dog dirt on the sidewalk
Scorched dollars in a pool of sick
Beggars with happy faces are dancing
Tango on the streets
Tango on the streets
Tango on the streets
Track Name: Dulchenea
Love comes rarely through my doorway
But when it suddenly arrived at me
It’s hopeful like a dream that puts me in a stream

Love comes rarely through my doorway
But when it is gone away too soon, too soon
You’ll be out of sight and I’m in the gloom

If it stays it is like mercy
If it’s lost it’s like recurring pain
Unbearable pain

My deepest gloom will lead the weakness
The days don’t mean a thing to me
Don’t mean a thing to me

Love comes rarely through my doorway
That’s why I always crossed in love
But I never will regret the time when we met
Sometimes makes life a present for you
Sometimes makes life a present for you

Alone, alone
Track Name: Kingdom
We built a wall against the sky
Whose shadow made the world turned grey
We built and built and at the end
We nailed this letter into the sand

This is the land where the human being
Has its absolute regime
And still the shadow grows and grows
Observes the fate of this declining earth

So everything comes to an end
In oh so many ways
Million years after the saurian
We’ll spend our lives in bad hair days
Yes, we’ll do

One day we woke up and saw the harm
Governments started to spread alarm
Conventions were held to blame the fault
Resulting in no result

Pressure groups had their day
They coloured decisions and they paid
While many thousand people protested
And many hundreds were arrested

So everything comes to an end
In oh so many ways
Million years after the saurian
We’ll spend our lives in bad hair days

Why do you think about children
In those uncertain days
The system comes to an end
We’ll get there anyways
Yes, we will

So everything comes to an end
In oh so many ways
Million years after the saurian
We’ll spend our lives in bad hair days
Yes, we will

We’ll build a wall against the sky
Track Name: Urban Blues
She’s leaving her home to go for work and rain is falling
It’s falling down the streets like hope falls in a puddle of mud
She’s looking for a line on the horizon but there are only grey skies
The weather is closed ever since she can remember

On and on there goes the Urban Blues
Runs from mouth to mouth like distending pain
On and on there goes the urban blues
Where money is the juice, where money is the juice

She’s stopping in front of the business zoo while the inhabitants still waiting
In a flash a thought crosses her mind to leave this town behind
She’s getting out the car, she starting to walk 40 days and 40 nights
Suddenly she’s seeing this shimmering light, she’s finding what she’s looking for

On and on there goes the Urban Blues
Runs from mouth to mouth like distending pain
On and on there goes the urban blues
Where money is the juice, where money is the juice

All the hope is in the sea
All the hope to stay alive, stay alive
Join the deepest waves with me
Until you lose, until you lose
The urban blues

On and on there goes the Urban Blues
Runs from mouth to mouth like distending pain
On and on there goes the urban blues
Where money is the juice, where money is the juice

On and on there goes the Urban Blues
Runs from mouth to mouth like distending pain
On and on there goes the urban blues
Where money is the juice, where money is the juice

Of the Urban Blues
