Track Name: Back Of Beyond
How far will you go for me?
Rifle through your mind.
I just want to see,
if you'd follow me at the back of beyond.
You'll have to give me memories,
as pretty as golden fallen leaves.
Rebuild my shattered dreams with trust

No you can't love a ghost like me.
I'm not even there for you to share my feelings and hopes.
I need you more than I need a friend.
You're so close but still too far away.
I'm not even there for you to share my feelings and hopes.

All in all, nothing was in vain,
a single glance of you
changed the whole array.
This was why the very end began.
Separated by a window pane,
you're indecisive if you should
rush to reach my train
Or perform that one kiss goodbye
You gave me those bright memories
as pretty as golden fallen leaves.
You filled this shattered time with love.

No you can't love a ghost like me.
I'm not even there for you to share my feelings and hopes.
I need you more than I need a friend.
You're so close but still too far away.
I'm not even there for you to share my feelings and hopes.
No you can't love a ghost like me.
I'm not even there for you to share my feelings and hopes.
I need you more than I need a friend.
You're so close but still too far away.
I'm not even there for you to share my feelings and hopes.
Track Name: Come Home
Roads leadin' away from my home
and the people I adore,
it's magic and so strange for me
exactly what I'm lookin' for.
The night is kissin' and shouts out for more:
'come on mate go ahead'.
The only thing i'm thinking of
is to drive home and go to bed.

I will come back home someday to see,
if i can stop the clocks before
the place leaves me.
I will come back home sometime

I recognize how the homesickness's fadin',
the more I get away.
The water on the street is sparklin' so bright,
a brightness which enlights the day

I will come back home someday to see,
if i can stop the clocks before
the place leaves me.
I will come back home someday to see,
if i can stop the clocks before
the place leaves me.

I will come back home sometime,
you'll see
that i'll return to the place from where I tried to flee
Track Name: Pricks & Gentlemen
As long as we see those simple things,
a dancin' leave or a bird that sings,
time seems to stand still.
As long as we smell the life's surprise,
the bloomin' trees or the spring arise
everyone's a prick

It's all about the poetry in life,
the peace you feel is dancin' through the nights.
Every gentleman can be a prick sometime.
But look into his eyes
you can see him apologize.

As long as I taste and trust my sense
of my tender skin and my feelin' hands
my heart seems to stand still.
I'll feel your words
and the sound of rain
I'll hear the time
runnin' through my veins.
Imagine what you can't see


It's all about the poetry in life,
the peace you feel is dancin' through the nights.
Every gentleman can be a prick sometime.
But look into his eyes
you can see him apologize.
Track Name: Indeed
I can't stand it anymore,
did you want to leave or did you want to score?
It's the indecision which cripples my mind,
my ears are deaf while my eyes are blind.
I felt your lips by drinking wine,
flick your cigarette and take one of mine.
Might be the last one for a long time.
I'm goin' to end your pathetic life.
All the things that should be done
and I wanted to work on them when
you have opened up at all
bring the renaissance of lies to fall.

Oh you say that your time has come,
I never had a feeling that it began.
You are insane and pretty lame
I just wanted to have some fun!
Did you just say that I am insane?
What about the day you assured you're my fan?
Girl you have to choose:
to lose the win,
or to win the loot.

I guess that I lost my throne,
you stole my sceptre by stealing my crown.
I want to break your every bone,
but in that case I would be alone.
I felt your lips by drinking wine,
the last gulp will be fine.
Might be the last one for a long time.
She's going to end my pathetic life

Oh you say that your time has come,
I never had a feeling that it began.
You are insane and pretty lame
I just wanted to have some fun!
Did you just say that I am insane?
What about the day you assured you're my fan?
Girl you have to choose:
to lose the win,
or to win the loot.

It's been like war at a really bad time we had when you started to fight,
now i would win at least for now!
Indeed you tried when you rounded the tine
the only way left is to travel back in time,
no you can't change the past
Track Name: Keswick
You see the dirt, the surrounding dust,
cover the world in your hands.
We defeat the violence and the fatigued past
and all remaining is silence
A friend of mine once told me to stay brave
and now
we survey the suspense repaint blue veins
when all reminds me of silence

And everyone, everybody's happy when they are lookin' into the clouds and the sun tries to come out.
Refreshing rain caresses your face and you can feel this natural grace of time
when everything seemed fine.

Enjoy yourself and listen to the stories of the day,
cause in 24 hours it's gone and past, the day won't come back


And everyone, everybody's happy when they are lookin' into the clouds and the sun tries to come out.
Refreshing rain caresses your face and you can feel this natural grace of time
when everything seemed fine.
Track Name: Simon Says
I guess you' re smart! I'm sure you're nice!
you get those girls, I should get twice,
and as far as I can tell, you're just about to fail.
I'm getting mean, I'm spreading lies.
You might be good, but I'll find your vice.
'It's still good to be alive', that's what you told me twice

How can he deal with the change I make, I want to stop before he breaks
How can he deal with my ingenuity and Simon says it's no big deal

When Simon says I'll be alone,
if I don't come down from my thrown.
I gave him my word to end this up. But I didn't give a fuck.
Now I'm sitting here on my thrown
and you see I am alone.
After all I realize „Simon you were right!“

How can he deal with the change I make, I want to stop before he breaks
How can he deal with my ingenuity and Simon says it's no big deal

Simon says i'll be alone if I don't come down from my thrown
Simon says i'll be alone if I don't come down from my thrown
Simon says
Simon says

How can he deal with the change I make, I want to stop before he breaks
How can he deal with my ingenuity and Simon says it's no big deal
Track Name: Honeywell
You see, I don't want to be free, I want to be caged and haunted
caged and haunted.
To be a wave in the sea, seems to be great and romantic
but I'd get seasick
Free will is about standin' still, you don't have to move if you don't
want to,it's a tool just to abuse you
Decide if you wanna things to hide, oh true lies can be true, too
use the truth to hush fools

I don't want you to watch me growin' old,
I thought there is some time
I thought I'll have some time.
Nothing is free and everything got insane
I tried to take your hand
and charm the time we spent

I don't want you to watch me growin' old,
I thought there is some time
I thought I'll have some time.
Nothing is free and everything got insane
I tried to take your hand
and charm the time we spent
Track Name: Silvan Story
Once you asked me to play tag, in a silvan next to the place,
where I fell in love with your auburn eyes, your pleasant face with the enticing smile.
I chased you and you chased me in a fabulous harmony,
a stone skidded down, I watched you scream before i fell down the acclivity.
I never felt as bad as now, broken legs and splinted arms,
one moment ago i enjoyed your laugh, now I'm scared not to survive this stroke.
The creek was cold and the movements were hard, I tried to focus on the beat of my heart, water poured in, oxygen out and now i know what this fight is about.

The last time i was conscious I heard myself shout:
„Now this is the end for heaven's sake, I get buried by my own mistakes“

I watch people dressed in black, carving words into a stone
„He'll stay alive in the silvanstory and he'll never be alone“
I never felt as bad as now broken thoughts and a splinted heart, once you said
„life is hard“ while you turned of my music and burnt my art.
I watch people dressed in white wanting me to survive,
I didn't care, goodbye world and welcome to paradise

The last time i was conscious I heard myself shout:
„Now this is the end for heaven's sake, I get buried by my own mistakes“
Track Name: Whisky, Wine & Tea
He takes a break it's 6pm,
weekday is over night starts again,
some likely lads call it's time for goin' out.
He had the choice of doin' or leavin'
he didn't get along so believe it,
it's a cage in a world of battered pieces.
Hiding your face and denying yourself,
defying the people and watching the wealth,
a hole in his heart gets filled with ballentines
gets filled with ballentines

They could have seen it come
that he'll break out tonight
but is it worth the fight?
Cause all the tears were torn,
no he can't get along
he is not ready

Learning,working, dying alone,
digging through mud or climbing a throne
side splitting days,
they need to be a crack.
Hiding yourself and denying your heart,
smile to the world to get drifted apart
a hole in his heart gets filled with red wine
gets filled with red wine

They could have seen it come
that he'll break out tonight
but is it worth the fight?
Cause all the tears were torn,
no he can't get along
he's still not ready

So help when he falls again,
or it's never gonna be the same life you had before with him.
Baby that's for sure

He takes a tablet while drinking tea
the long nights party's over and
you can see
Whisky, Wine and Tea is the bible we need

They could have seen it come
that he'll break out tonight
but is it worth the fight?
Cause all the tears were torn,
no he can't get along
are you ready?
Track Name: Gravelines
I never asked you when and why you'll leave
but I wait you'll see.
I called you once, I called you twice that eve
but since I heard the message I started to retreat.

I remember a time, with cigarettes and wine,
bloody jokes and laughter all the time.
I've never been so drunk and clear minded at a time
You never asked me to walk with you the line

I remember when you asked me for my car,
I anwsered that you should not drive too fast.
You mentioned that velocity makes free,
I smiled and handed over the peace brining key

I remember a time, with cigarettes and wine,
bloody jokes and laughter all the time.
I've never been so drunk and clear minded at a time
You never asked me to walk with you the line
