RUN 06:20
So that's the way it goes Disaster Ferocious at its core So you go faster Time won't wait Don't hesitate It's not too late To escape your fate LEFT RIGHT START again Imagine how your story ends Lifeline caving in All the smiles are wearing thin Breakpoint step by step Who's your friend? Who's your friend Touch feel START again Imagine you can beat it down Left right start anew Push it harder see it through Power raise the bar Tie them up and you'll go far A B UP DOWN Uptown downtown END and START again It's all in your hands Run for your life This is it You can't hide Do what is right Go out with a fight Try to rely on your will to survive You have to run or you'll run out of time

NIGHTLINE 04:27
I'm unsure of something I want to know Is this your touch I'm sensing? It's getting strong Forgetting what I know Don't say I told you so Maybe I'm just too human To let it go Let me lead you to the future I'll be yours and you'll be futile Never had this much power in my hands Is it because of the street lights (There's just no way of knowing) Hidden behind the skyline (There's just no way of knowing) Million colors wrapped around Stars are falling to the ground Am I still full of potential (There's just one way to find out) With all my life in suspension (There's just one way to find out) Wake me up before it ends I can't believe it's all we have Perfectly unironic The lights will fade Correctly inadvertent Our beds are made Tucked away cause they say we should plan it better Rest assured it's obscure just enough to fit in Melodies played with ease are the ones we follow Not too fast, we should test if the water's shallow Is it because of the street lights Hidden behind the skyline Million colors wrapped around Stars are falling to the ground Am I still full of potential With all my life in suspension Wake me up before it ends I can't believe it's all we have Is it because of the street lights (There's just no way of knowing) Hidden behind the skyline (There's just no way of knowing) Million colors wrapped around Stars are falling to the ground Am I still full of potential (There's just one way to find out) With all my life in suspension (There's just one way to find out) Wake me up before it ends I can't believe it's all we have

VISIONARY 05:43
Even in a time known for its extremes People achieving things through any means Made of fear and insecurities We understand but we're confused A pale-faced girl on the social scene Weird-looking teenager with impossible dreams Limelight living, lots of giving A tender touch on a body bruised A visionary you are not Absent-minded, you forgot Rolled up, screwed up, torn apart To fit inside a melting pot An hourglass turned upside down Empty heart turned inside out Pick a story, make it yours to tell And on the screen you tell so very well All your feeling we're receiving Break the spell, a change will come A visionary you are not Absent-minded, you forgot Rolled up, screwed up, torn apart To fit inside a melting pot An hourglass turned upside down Empty heart turned inside out Hands, they break as they bind you You create while we define you Desperate to leave something behind you

RESOLVE 06:38
I used to think I talk too much to keep you company I didn't think I've done enough to have your sympathy But now I find we didn't have the time to laugh the night away Perhaps I'm blind I’ll leave it all behind to start again and see the light of day I used to have so many doubts, I could've gone astray There ain't enough good words in the world to make it all OK But now you say we never had the time to sing the song of love And so tonight I'm leaving you behind To start again and find my own resolve

about

Hey Karen Rotterdam, Netherlands

Hey Karen is an alias for Bartek Urban, who creates electronica, synthpop, and industrial - the stuff that both melts your heart and your brain.
Home recordings and lo-fi aesthetic aren't necessarily a bad thing, since he believes the feeling is more important. A full scope of that feeling can be seen in his audiovisual live shows, which he regularly performs since 2011.
