1.
Look around at the world today Our precious home withers in decay What once was whole is now torn and stained Do you wonder how it got this way? The years will come The years will go Kingdoms rise and fall The time has come to take control The world belongs to us Long ago, a choice was made The few would rule, the rest obey Now we are taught how to behave Don't question why, and don't complain A single drop of water becomes a mighty fall People of the earth The world belongs to us Now it's time to demonstrate That you and I can make history Tear down the walls that separate To make us weak and keep us afraid
2.
Eyes upon you, far away Presence felt, every day Wake up now it’s time to rise You’re too scared to open your eyes All your warmth has turned to cold All your stories have been told Here again, they tighten the chain Can you fathom this refrain? Restricting you by unscrupulous means Black eyes pierce into your deepest dreams A presence felt, no other way Binds you to your final day As they stand and stare Unease you cannot bear Escape now if you dare It doesn’t matter where They’ll be watching you They’ll be stalking you You become aware The path leads to nowhere A state of disrepair Wallowing in despair As they’re watching you As they’re stalking you From far away They’re watching you from far away You feel their presence every day The omnipresent entities Experimental Identities You are the warmth, they’re the cold Forced to fit into their mold Your misery will still remain But bitterly you can’t complain Unafraid, the shadows cry Blacker than the falling sky You feel their presence every day They’re watching you from far away As I stand and stare Unease you cannot bear Escape now if you dare It doesn’t matter where I’ll be watching you I'll be stalking you You become aware The path leads to nowhere A state of disrepair Wallowing in despair As we’re watching you As we’re stalking you From far away

about

Update 01/05/2020: The contents of this Single have been rereleased as part of the Stalkers 2020 album. Grab it here: tankardhaus.bandcamp.com/album/stalkers-2020

A few years ago when Tankard Haus was still just a duo and we first came up with the idea to actually make music, we decided that it would be fun to cover a track from one of the many artists that inspire us, in this case, we chose to cover Informatik's 'The World Belongs To Us' from their 'Re:Vision' album originally released in 2004.

Our cover of 'The World Belongs To Us' is one of the first pieces of music we ever worked on, once Nathan made us three, we pushed all unfinished projects aside and laid out the plan for our debut release which resulted in Stalkers [EP]. Now that Stalkers has been released, we decided to go back and complete our cover song, just for fun.

Bundled with 'The World Belongs To Us' is a new remix of our debut EP's title track, 'Stalkers', by Insomnious, whom also contributed to said EP with a fantastic synthwave remix of our debut single 'When I Fall'. This new remix is exactly the kind of quality come to be expected from Insomnious.

We would like to personally thank Informatik, both Da5id Din and Tyler Newman, for their support on the production of this cover and permitting us to release it to the public for free download and streaming. Enjoy!
