Track Name: (glowing) big stars
the girl in the red scarf
from the hole in the backyard
she´s out for some action
and some reputation
ten years in tight black jeans
not always that good as it seems
i have this guilt in my heart
the end or a new start?

we beat the shark

the boys in the playground
are building bombs for the huge sound
the hunt for father´s pride
and a life on the fast side
ten years you play this song
you still get the words wrong
there´s a question in your heart
is there an end or a new start?

we beat the shark in this life

the kids they love fast cars
down in the streets glowing big stars
there´s a light in their heart
it signals the start

we beat the shark in this life
Track Name: a room for the damned
as a look from the grey man
as the houses and the streets have glasses on
he carries weights in his brief-case

with a solid education
a gentle manner in every situation
make a parting and face the other side

as assurance disappears
as you stumble and questions are loud and clear
can you focus the line and see a light?

when the day is growing older
dumb faces in the greylight glowing
so this is the life, this is the day – you´re joking!

waiting for the flood
cowering till it comes
a room for the damned
a haven for the crashed

frustration – frustration
but you´ve lost your voice again

with a hint from the black man
who´s in charge of his thoughts and is moving on
he carries weights in empty hands

with a solid education
a distinct pose in every situation
is there nothing left from the other side?

when the year is growing older
familiar faces in the greylight calling
this is the life, this is the day – you´re joking!

waiting for the flood
cowering till it comes
a room for the damned
a haven for the crashed

frustration – frustration
but you´ve lost your voice again
Track Name: details (moving)
she´s been on a ride
trouble in her eyes
the smell of black leather

follow, not – what means fighting?
follow, not – are we frightened?
details moving, in empty trains
details moving, at night

she´s digging in the sand
laughter in her mouth
the smell of black mould

follow, not – what means fighting?
follow, not – are we frightened?
details moving, in empty trains
details moving, at night

move – follow – move – follow
till we fall back
move – follow – move – follow
till we fall back

we´ve been on a ride

follow, not – what means fighting?
follow, not – are we frightened?
faces, static – in empty trains
faces, static – at night

face – static - face – static
till we crawl back
Track Name: in shades
a shelter with wet walls
she leaned to the door
a fake statement without words

here she comes stumbling
white lines she draws
an ode to life for the radio

in shades are we

a distinct appearance
is not what you´ve lost
wiped your eyes and walked away

it was a new try
when he crashed into her
a loose memory in random minds

in shades are we

here we stand wasted
with thoughts nailed to the wall
can you face another lie?
and the shadow is on the inside
no days of grace

she came from the red lights
in a shady glance
turns on the tape and sings alone

in shades are we

here we stand wasted
with thoughts nailed to the wall
can you face another lie?
and the shadow is on the inside
no days of grace
Track Name: a splinter for the pure
today we saw
today we fall

today just failed

on the second day things break
dead city numb for years of sleep, another empty head
our faces break in two
for the lies we bare, for the rain that falls
for the ashes that fall in our eyes and ears now

for the last time on the inside
scars – the memories we share

a window filled with lies
a silhouette that used to be
the shape of years, the shine in my eyes

today so failed

embraces filled with void
as faces turn their back on you, another empty word
a splinter for the pure
for the bridges crashed, with the brinks we´ve made
for the snow that falls in june on her way

today we fall
today so failed
Track Name: the drowning
take me inside
to find relief
to find a truth

an open way
give me truth
while images are broken

through the paths we cross
is there a solid point?
a view? a step made of stone?

in clouds i lay
my head down to the ground
drowning in you, drowning in me

fall away from doubt
clear my mind in a single strike
throw this world in pieces

you and i, standing
on grounds of green
pass the waters to me

don´t count any hours
sand on the ways
wind through the doors
seeing through you, seeing through me

take me inside
take me as a whole
you pull me deep
falling through you, falling through me

you and i

leave the lights on
inside the walls
inside my thoughts
crashing through you, crashing through me

take me inside
hold me while I fall
we dive in deep
come back to you! come back to me!

you and i

i stand and shiver
i stand and call out loud
the house is open wide
but we don´t come knocking

crawl back inside
there´s no picture of a home
the sky is open bright
the door is open!
Track Name: rita, you know we´re doomed
white boy, blank stare
light a fire in my eyes
disguised in neon lights
you were flashing, flashing, flashing

we were the golden people
wasted for the holy week
you were supposed to show me love
but shot shot shot shot shot it away

lost on the road to wisdom
with no pair of shoes
we fell down like broken angels
with no kind of loveliness to lose

black girl, ugly cat
we were stuck in the same room for months
show me the path to a home far away
with the bright shining light of my cigarette
Track Name: dead end
this is no way to end up
this is no way to go
watching your shadow come home
through swollen eyes you fall

this is no way to break up
this is no way to cede
on glory days we´re tumbling
and missed the point to go

this is no cause to fall down
this is no day to win
still watching your hand lose hold
the head a mess at all

this is another sunrise
not yet another day
you numb your point of view though
you keep this secret role

this is no road to follow
this is no stretch to take
Track Name: the desperate
you´re just a face in the crowd
and you will fail anyway
let them rest in peace
will you stay?

moving forward, walk in line
a disregarded question
let me disagree
but what will i say?

they stare with empty eye sockets
the desperate, always blind
in chimera we will wait
holding leaden weights in our minds
petrified i will wait
the same excuse in my mind

it´s just a face on a wall
it won´t go away
as we miss the point
the doubts stay

moving forward, walk to the light
a disregarded question
will you disagree?
what will you say?

they stare with empty eye sockets
the desperate, always blind
in chimera we will wait
holding leaden weights in our minds
petrified i will wait
the same excuse in my mind

it´s just a face on the wall
