reflection 03:04
Ant Antic - reflection Something doesn’t seem alright. 
I don’t know what it is but it gets me this time. I cough up every time we fight. 
I cough up every time we both try to be right. 
Your baggage doesn’t seem so light. 
I don’t know what it is but it scares me this time.
I fuck up every time we try. A fuck up every time we both try to deny. 
Something doesn’t seem alright.
It’s my reflection that I see in your eyes.
Something doesn’t seem alright. 
It’s the reflection of me that I despise. Something doesn’t seem alright. 
I don’t know what it is but it gets me this time. I cough up every time we fight. 
I cough up every time we both try to be right. Your baggage doesn’t seem so light. 
I don’t know what it is but it scares me, alright.
It slowly starts to break my spine. I slowly start to get it’ been mine all the time. Something doesn’t seem alright.
It’s my reflection that I see in your eyes.
Something doesn’t seem alright. 
It’s my reflection in you that I despise. 
 Something doesn’t seem alright.
It’s my reflection that I see in your eyes.
Something doesn’t seem alright. 
It’s my reflection in you that I despise. 
 It's my reflection. It’s my reflection that I see in your eyes. It's my reflection. It's my reflection.

wasting time 03:11
Ant Antic - wasting time
 Every now and then I need to stimulate my senses.
 but I still feel alright. Cause as hard it’s been to let you go, It’s hard to let somebody close.
 Now, we’re doing fine all by our selves and meet late night on Fridays.
 Or did we stay in Berlin long enough to turn into the clique. Feel like I’ve been wasting time, watching everyday go by. 
 A dream of supermarket aisles, waiting for your phone dial. 
 Feel like I’ve been wasting time. Everything will be alright. 
 Wishing we could go world wide.
 Go all the way. Go, go, go all the way. 
 
 My entertainment of emotions seem a little bit obsessive, 
 but it’s worth a try.
 If we can get us through the night, it might cure our mental if we’re right. 

 Feel like I’ve been wasting time, watching everyday go by. 
 A dream of supermarket aisles, waiting for your phone dial. 
 Feel like I’ve been wasting time. Everything will be alright. 
 Wishing we could go world wide.
 Go all the way.

Ant Antic - doing alright She's taking her time. I like the way she moves I guess it alright. She's spending her time and I have sh*t to do. I guess its all fine. She knows how to fight. It makes me work things out and it's about time. She's up for the ride and I promise I won't fuck it up this time. We put our egos aside, or just meet in the next life. If we just put in the time, I think we're doing alright. She's taking her time. I like the way she moves I guess it alright. She's spending her time and I have sh*t to do. I guess its all fine. She knows how to fight. It makes me work things out and it's about time. She's up for the ride and I promise I won't fuck it up this time. I can't talk around it. Doesn't mean I need you to commit. We can talk about it. Doesn't mean we need to go all in. We put our egos aside, or just meet in the next life. If we just put in the time, I think we're doing alright. We put our egos aside, or just meet in the next life. If we just put in the time, I think we're doing alright.

Ant Antic – show don't tell Closer. I think we didn't used to be that cold. No sound. Communication on hold. Show don't, show don't tell! I think our love's lost in translation Show don't, show don't tell! Cause I know I need confirmation and help.

Ant Antic – work for a minute 
Something so fine worth spending time. Making me work for a minute. Got to learn to work on our limits baby. 
There’s something in side us 
to mirror our pride
. It’s making me work for a minute. 
Please If we just flow with the time when something’s off, we got to make it work for a minute

. If we can’t put in the time 
when somethings off, 
we won’t make it work for a minute, baby. 
 With you by my side
through sleepless nights.
It’s making you work for a minute.
we got to learn to work on our limits, baby. 

So hard to deny that something’s not right.
Making you work for a minute. 
Please

 If we just flow with the time when something’s off, we got to make it work for a minute

. If we can’t put in the time 
when somethings off,
 we won’t make it work for a minute, baby. 
 If we just flow with the time when something’s off, we got to make it work for a minute

. If we can’t put in the time 
when somethings off, 
we won’t make it work for a minute, baby.

Ant Antic, Sultans Court - bulldozer You only see me high before I hit the ground. Take my hand to wrap my head around. It only feels alright when I am out of bounds. So take my hand. Cause you are not the only one to fight it. Hiding in the fantasy behind it. You are not the only one to fight it, giving it the look, giving it the time to mend the heartache Hold me tight when life hits like a bulldozer. If I lose it, can you keep me just a little closer. Hold me tight when life hits like a bulldozer. If I lose it, can you keep me just a little closer When life hits like a bulldozer Can you keep me just a little closer. When life hits like a bulldozer. You never see me down acting out of bounds. Take my hand and wrap your head around. I only keep you close when I feel safe and sound. I lose my head. Cause you are not the only one to fight it. Hiding in the fantasy behind it. You are not the only one to fight it, giving it the look, giving it the time to mend the heartache. Hold me tight when life hits like a bulldozer. If I lose it, can you keep me just a little closer. Hold me tight when life hits like a bulldozer. If I lose it, can you keep me just a little closer. When life hits like a bulldozer. Can you keep me just a little closer. When life hits like a bulldozer.

Ant Antic, Lizki – this time i Something’s off today. Walls are coming down. 
 Set the time for a riot and work it out.
 Something’s off today.
Thought I’ve heard it all.
 I’ve read the signs. It’s fine to burn it all down. This time I step in the fire. 
This time I try something new. This time I follow desires.
If that’s what you want me to do. Hype me up. Let me down. Do whatever, whatever you want. 
 Hype me up. Let me down. Endless waves, can you take me home. Something’s off today. 
I can’t quite pin it down.
 We spent the time to make it right and talk it out. Something’s off today. We’re really trying though.
 Don’t resign. It’s fine if we burn it all down. This time we step in the fire. 
This time we try something new. 
 This time we follow desires.
If that’s what you want us to do. Hype me up. Let me down. Do whatever, whatever you want. 
 Hype me up. Let me down. Endless waves, can you take me home.

hold 00:34
Ant Antic – hold Hold me. We get along. You could have told me something is wrong. We still have the night for these bottles of wine. I could have turn back the time with these bottles of wine. Hold you in my arms and tell you its's fine to go on. Everything's fucked up.

worst case 03:07
Ant Antic – worst case You took the way off line. I picture you. Paint you in my mind. Memories in black and white. All is said and done. Never been the one. Got to hit the road. Never missing home. Got to see the sun. I just need to run. Melted into one. The damage is done. You hit me with the worst case. I turn it in to gold. Don't need to hear the words that cause the fire in my heart. You hit me with the worst case. I turn it in to gold. Don't need to hear the words that cause the fire in my heart. Cause the fire in my heart. All is said and done, like you've never been the one. You are slipping through my hands. My waterfall romance. I will never go back in time. All is said and done. Never been the one. Got to hit the road. Never missing home. Got to see the sun. I just need to run. Melted into one. The damage is done. You hit me with the worst case. I turn it in to gold. Don't need to hear the words that cause the fire in my heart. You hit me with the worst case. I turn it in to gold. Don't need to hear the words that cause the fire in my heart. Cause the fire in my heart. You hit me with the worst case. You hit me with the, hit me with the. You hit me with the worst case right in my heart. You hit me with the worst case. You hit me with the, hit me with the. You hit me with the worst case right in my heart.

Ant Antic, no:no – closer Been some time I’ve heard from you again it’s just a little time to talk. Say I’m fine, but then I know you know that I turn bitte when you’re gone. I spent too much time waiting for you to pull me out my down time. I guess this is why it's been so hard to let you go from my side. I don’t need you. I want me to want you. I don’t need you. I want you to want me closer. Been some time I’ve saved for you. Again its just a little time to talk. You say you’re fine, but then I know, I know you put the pressure on yourself. I spent too much time waiting for you to pull me out my down time. I guess this is why it's been so hard to let you go from my side. I don’t need you. I want me to want you I don’t need you. I want you to want me closer. I don’t need you. I want me to want you I don’t need you. I want you to want me closer. 
 I think we are falling apart. I know that I did play my part in it. 
 This is where we should have to stop but i know I know I want you closer. I think we are falling apart. I know that I did play my part in it. 
 This is where we should have to stop but i know I know I want you closer. I don’t need you. I want me to want you I don’t need you. I want you to want me closer.

loveisop 04:05
Ant Antic - loveisop Couldn’t feel anything for months.
Didn’t find a way out of my own skin.
Guess I found someone to move on. Guess I was afraid of how it all went wrong. All that silence I felt in my guts, in my guts and I've held my breath as long as I could. All these thoughts invaded my brain cells, my brain cells and I served my head on a plate. My love is always open. My love is always open to figure things out. I wish I was as open like the bottle in my hand to figure things out. Love is always open. Love is always open to figure it out. Love is always open. Love is always open to figure it out.
 Couldn't feel anything for her. Couldn't let anyone under my skin. Kept myself busy and moved on. Guess someone got hurt. 
All that silence I felt in my guts, in my guts and I've held my breath as long as I could. Sleepless hours in my bed, in my bed and I can't get no rest. My love is always open. My love is always open to figure things out. I wish I was as open like the bottle in my hand to figure things out. My love is always open. My love is always open to figure things out. I wish I was as open like the bottle in my hand to figure things out. Love is always open. Love is always open to figure it out. Love is always open. Love is always open to figure it out.


about

The concept album 'social performer', written in Berlin, delves deep into the psychological depths of breakups and the resulting feelings of powerlessness. With a fragile sensitivity and authenticity, Koett addresses emotional lows and their impact on one's social life.
Driving minimalist drum machines meet playful yet dark sound design. Vocal modulations and autotune blend with dynamic analog instrumentation.
"Social Performer" challenges conventions while embracing them with familiar warmth, remaining in the ear but compelling multiple listens—pop, without aiming to be just pop.
All songs on "Social Performer" were written, composed, produced, and mixed by Tobias Koett.
