about

Produced almost entirely in his attic in the wee hours of the night, Man After Midnight's debut EP seamlessly fuses elements of R&B, electronica, funk, rap, rock and movie soundtracks into a delirious blend of timeless pop.

Peet Gelderblom, once the lead vocalist of Rotterdam funk sensation Dirty Laundry, reveals himself to be an adventurous songsmith, serving up cosmic grooves, simmering melodies and thought-provoking lyrics for a listener experience that grows stronger with every track.

Track Name: Roll The Dice
Greed is good and ignorance is bliss
The parts are always greater than the whole
Friendship is an illusion best sealed with a Judas kiss
Whoever loves the least is in control

That’s what we learned, that’s what we know
Don’t second-guess, progress, on with the show
That’s how it’s done, that’s how you grow
Hesitations only interrupt the flow

We will get older
We will get wise
As atrocities fade away
We will be faithful
We will make nice
But until that distant day
Don’t think twice
Roll the dice

Believe the lie and make up the truth
When the money stops just start another war
Get away with murder by blaming it on the youth
Why study the past if it pays off to ignore

That’s what we learned, that’s what we know
The curtains close, the crowd goes wild, we bow
That’s how it’s done, that’s how you grow
We came, we saw and that’s how far we’ll go

We will get older
We will get wise
As atrocities fade away
We will be faithful
We will make nice
But until that distant day
Don’t think twice
Roll the dice

We need forward momentum so why dwell on the past
Stop giving me answers to questions never asked
But then it hit me hard – bang! – reality check
Modern society’s headed for a train wreck
The suspect to blame, he looks a lot like me
Between Us and Them whatever happened to We
People own so damn much yet never-ever enough
We sure love to Like but really what’s to love

We will get older
We will get wise
As atrocities fade away
We will be faithful
We will make nice
But until that distant day
Don’t think twice
Roll the dice

Get older
Get wise
Be faithful
Make nice
Think twice
That’s how you grow
Track Name: Last Song About You
This is the last song about you
At least I hope it is
It’s not that I’m out of lyrics
I’d write another twenty just like this

And yet I sing the last song about you
This is all heartache deserves
Nothing I do will make you care about me
By now I’ll probably get on your nerves

Yes now I see
I wasn’t made for you
I was made for myself
And for the things I can do

And if you don’t believe that
Just listen to the sound
Of all the different songs I’ve made
While you were not around

And although I miss you again
I don’t need you

I never liked the friends you had
It’s time that I confessed
They stimulated a part of you I hated
Brought out your bad side, you forgot the rest

So now you’re one of them
I wonder why
You were best in the days we were all alone
When you weren’t drunk or high

Yes now I see
I wasn’t made for you
I was made for myself
And for the things I can do

And if you don’t believe that
Just listen to the sound
Of all the different songs I’ve made
While you were not around

And although I miss you again
Although I miss you again
Although I miss you again
I don’t need you
Track Name: Overdose
Every time I go
I come back
One minute without her
The sky turns black

I don’t know what it is
That I miss
Why can’t I resist
A thing that doesn’t exist

I don’t know why I like her
She keeps asking why I do
I could say she’s so nice to me
But that wouldn’t be so true

I’ve had an overdose
I guess I came too close
Hot fever, cold sweat
She’s too good to forget

She’s got one bad habbit
She lies
And everytime I tell it
She denies

When she does I laugh
‘Cause I know
If she begged me to believe her
I wouldn’t say no

I don’t know why I like her
She keeps asking why I do
I could say she’s so nice to me
But that wouldn’t be so true

I’ve had an overdose
I guess I came too close
Hot fever, cold sweat
She’s too good to forget
Track Name: Civilized In A Savage World
Born on a small street in a small town
Your parents tried to raise you well
They taught you how to be a good boy
And gave you a band-aid when you fell

At junior high the teasing started
With bullies driving you to tears
Smelling blood they mocked your innocence
You learned to cope throughout the years

You’re civilized in a savage world
Watch your step out of the comfort zone
You’re civilized in a savage world
All grown up and all alone

And finally the day had come
For you to boldly leave the nest
No more foolish games--that’s what you thought
Which proved you wiser than the rest

Here’s the thing about maturity
You’ll wish you never joined the club
Adults behave like kids sometimes
We show our age but won’t grow up

You’re civilized in a savage world
Watch your step out of the comfort zone
You’re civilized in a savage world
All grown up and all alone

All grown up and all alone
All grown up
All grown up and all alone
All grown up
All grown up and all alone
Track Name: Crack The Code
I watched you from afar
Playing hard to get
Rejecting without reason
The love you never had

Too proud to hide in shadows
Too shy to show your skin
I wonder what you're scared of
What secret lies within

Crack the code
I know you want me to
Unlock the thing that's holding you
Open up now, it won't hurt
Soon I'll say the magic word

You never needed anyone
Least of all a man
That's all about to change, girl
If only I knew when

One day I'll touch that weak spot
Then I'll reap what I have sowed
Your body grows impatient
I guess today I'll crack your code

Crack the code
I know you want me to
Unlock the thing that's holding you
Open up now, it won't hurt
Soon I'll say the magic word

I'm the breath against your neck
The chill running up your spine
Without you ever knowing
I made you cross the line

You'll open like a flower
And let the right one in
Pardon my intrusion
Let the games begin

One day I'll touch that weak spot
And then I'll reap what I have sowed
Your body grows impatient
I guess today I'll crack your code

Crack the code
I know you want me to
Unlock the thing that's holding you
Open up now, it won't hurt
Soon I'll say the magic word

You are about to change, girl
Get ready for the change
