Track Name: Human Machines
Not everybody knows in this golden age
We’ve got more than we deserve
Not everybody knows nothing’s for free for real
Someone else has paid somewhere else yeah

I saw you turn your face away
I noticed cause I did the same
I saw him turn off the spotlight
And making his duty his pride

We’re just blinded human machines
Working harder cutting and squeezing
We’re just programmed mechanic drills
We don’t have an idea of the scars we leave

Not everybody knows in this golden age
We’ve got more than we deserve
Not everybody knows nothing’s for free for real
Someone else is paying right now, right now

I see you turn your face away
I notice cause I do the same
D’you see him turn off the spotlight
And making his duty his pride?

We’re just blinded human machines
Working harder cutting and squeezing
We’re just programmed mechanic drills
We don’t have an idea of the scars we leave

We’re just blinded human machines
Working harder cutting and squeezing
We’re just programmed mechanic drills
We don’t have an idea of the scars we leave
Track Name: How The Hell
How the hell are you treating your girl, man?
How the hell are you treating your boy, girl?
How the hell are we treating each other?
How the hell are we treating this world

As the globe is revolving through the galaxy
And we’re burning our flammable life
There is no way to run to the mountains
It’s this world you are in, it’s this crap you must fix

Do we still agree we’re from the same star?
Or we’re enslaving the other half
Well you know we’re all each other’s consequences
It’s her fear you must feel, it’s his heart you must heal

How the hell are you treating your girl, man?
How the hell are you treating your boy, girl?
How the hell are we treating each other?
How the hell are we treating this world

As the sun comes and goes at the speed of light
There’s no shadow to cast on our thrones
It’s plain to see a change is already happening
How d’you want it to be? would you move without me?

Sally has gone, she stopped waiting years ago now
We’re still singing along waving our pints
3am and our home is an empty pit
Are we happy like this, thinking it is what it is

How the hell are you treating your girl, man?
How the hell are you treating your boy, girl?
How the hell are we treating each other?
How the hell are we treating this world
Track Name: Blink Of An Eye
Something's wrong now I'm without you
Something's wrong in a glance of an eye
There's no lie I could buy
No elephant to deny
To believe in just one reason why

Drop it all, I've got no place to call home
I wanna just hear your whispering lips saying my name
Drop it all, I hate my way back home
At every corner this lame city is not the same

And you're gone, well I couldn’t hold you off
Jumping on a star, in a blink of an eye
Should I climb to where you are
Shoot this hurt horse to die
Leave the desert, throw these guns behind

Drop it all, I've got no place to call home
I wanna just hear your whispering lips saying my name
Drop it all, I hate my way back home
At every corner this lame city is not the same

There's no lie I could buy
To believe in just one reason why

Drop it all, I've got no place to call home
I wanna just hear your whispering lips saying my name
Drop it all, I hate my way back home
At every corner this lame city is not the same

Something's wrong in a glance of an eye
there's no lie
Track Name: Out Of Control
I’ve been inside, I’ve been all around
You are not what you may seem
I tried to shape, to warp myself
Forgetting to be me
After chasing you every night you were somewhere else
After saying bullshit to half the world that needs me back

For You, out of control
For You, out of control
I’ve been for you alone

Who are you? Who are you now?
Who will you be next time?
I was voiceless if you spoke
Not ready to collide
After having the same dream but doing all your way
You said I’m a shit
You never figure out just why

For You, out of control
For You, out of control
I’ve been for you alone

Flying high, if only I had my peace time back
Getting up, that’s a step that I can do myself
Flying high like I was before you saw me
Floating over all the fear you left inside my mind
Flying high, after breathing too much dust in
Flying high, after trembling as you looked at me
Flying high, without being touched by clever lies
Without minding if or what I should say this time

For You, out of control
For You, out of control
I’ve been for you alone
Track Name: Two Idiots
I’ve never known two idiots
Two idiots like me and you
I’ve never known two fools play
And ruin it all just like me and you
I’ve never heard of a romance
Crashing down like ours do
I’ve never known two idiots
Burn out like we do

You loathe the sound of my voice
Anytime I talk to you
How can I support you?
If you slap my face and cut me through
And I will smash your room now
Smithereens and screams, I hate it too
Never known two idiots
Burn out like we do

You don’t care what we were, do you?
You don’t care anymore, do you?
You forget everything and now I’m fading out of your head
You don’t care what we were, do you?
You‘re not here anymore, are you?
You’ve forgotten our moments while they’re wildly spinning my head

Never known two idiots
Rip their lives, rip their lives up like me and you
Never saw you crying
Like when you said, like when you said you needed me too
Oh I never heard of two lovers
Growling their love like tigers
And longing for their own touch
Just like we do
And I never thought this feeling could die
In the fire, believe me, I didn’t have a clue

You don’t care what we were, do you? …
You’ve forgotten our moments and I just have to understand
Track Name: Mess Painter
A Bucket full of red, I’ve splashed it on the wall
And everything I know about your favourite sweet candies
Is on the safe side now
Lining your gentle face with tulips on my hands
And everything I know about you is slowly finding the right place

I’d like your soul, I’d like your soul…
I’d like your soul, yes I, I’d like your soul on my wall
I’d like your soul, I’d like your soul…
I’d like your soul, yes I, I’d like your soul on my wall

On one side, the Orion’s belt held up by three little frogs
And every word you’ve said about poetry, songs and German
I’ve painted with your brown leaf
A sea of green, pieces of mirror and a sunset view
An endless lemon joy, how I hope you can bring it to my life

I’ve got your soul, I’ve got your soul…
I’ve got your soul, yes I, I’ve got your soul on my wall
I’ve got your soul, I’ve got your soul…
I’ve got your soul, yes I, I’ve got your soul on my wall
Track Name: Make Love
Make love, make love with me
Oh girl, if you’re lost at sea
Come on, forget to breathe
Make love, make love to me

Lay down your arms and see
There’s no war you need to win
Come on, forget to think
Make love, make love with me

It’s gotta be like the first time
It's gotta be as you want it
I gotta follow the paths leading to where you feel cold
And till I fall asleep I will warm your soul up

Make love, make love with me
For love, for love we live

It’s gotta be like the first time
It's gotta be as you want it
I gotta follow the paths leading to where you feel cold
And till U fall asleep I will warm your soul up

Make love, make love with me
Oh girl, if you’re lost at sea
Come on, forget to breathe
For love, for love we live
Track Name: Stay Awake
Hi, do you see that orange pub?
Would you like to go there?
Ah, this is not bad, oh
Ah yeah, It’s not bad, oh
Sure, only a drink, well, maybe two
Just to laugh our heads off
Ah, ’till we go mad, oh
Ah, ’till we go mad and

If you want to stay awake
I will lead you here by my side
If you are tired of just being friends
Tell me so, you don’t have to say it twice
If you want to stay awake
I’ll be your wonderful night
If you swear you will never let me down

Each joke we tell is a little lie
'Cause you have to try me
How can I tell you that?
How can I tell you that?
Free, won’t you live my love and set me free?
'Cause I’m deeply rolling
I think I’ve gone mad, yeah
I think I’ve gone mad, yeah

If you want to stay awake
I will lead you here by my side
If you are as tired of this as I am
Tell me so, you don’t have to say it twice
If you want to stay awake
I’ll be your damn crazy night
If you promise you will go crazy about me

Hi, you can’t always go on your own
You can’t always do that
I’m going mad, I know
I’m going mad to make you know
Yeah it’s easier said than done
It’s a lot of work for me
How can I work it out?
How can I tell you that?
How can I tell you that?

If you want to stay awake
I will lead you here by my side
If you are tired of just being friends
Tell me so, you don’t have to say it twice
If you want it too, stay awake
And I’ll be your wonderful night
If you swear you will never let me, let me down
Track Name: Something More
What I really feel
Yeah what I wedge in me
You don’t know, don’t see
Oh let’s face up to it

What do you care about?
I really care about you
There’s something above this sky I want to show you
What do you say now?
Don’t be unclear now

Something more if you come close
Something more if you come close

God, I need a gift
Oh, use the force, Luke, please
If you never realised
It's because I’ve been a fool for years

What will you do, now?
I really just want to know
I’d like to take you around this world for a minute
What do you say now?
Don’t be unclear now

So, what is your answer?
Don’t put my hopes down
There are some secrets I’d love you to uncover
What do you think now?
What are you thinking right now?

Something more if you come close
Something more if you come close
Track Name: Gravity
Still gravity goes,
I must try not to fall
What’s throwing me down?
Who's stolen my hands?
Can’t find my own line
Can’t see it at all
I’m forcing myself to breathe
I’m forcing myself to breathe
You’ve scratched my eyes
You’ve blown up my mind
It still feels like you have never left my side
Still feeling those warm embraces I once knew

I’ve been travelling across space and
I’m limping, I’m hurt like a soldier
Oh it’s tearing me apart, my good friend
So stop playing hide and seek now
I’ve been travelling miles away
Spent days looking under rocks and now
It’s true, I will never have you back
I’m just going straight into nowhere

Still gravity goes,
There’s no time delay
I see a leaf falling down
And crash upon my feet
What can you do against Newton’s law?
It should remind me things go the way they want
Still think that you have never tried
Yeah, you have never tried hard to keep me by your side

I’ve been travelling across space and
I’m limping, hurt like a soldier
Oh it’s tearing me apart, my good friend
So stop playing hide and seek now
I’ve been travelling miles away
Spent days looking under rocks and now
Yeah, It’s true, I will never have you back
I’m just going straight into nowhere, nowhere, nowhere
Track Name: Connection
My thoughts are travelling miles to the other side of the world
Those mixed feelings you well know won’t let me go
We’ve done things all lovers would do
Still unsure if it was love
But I started being a little different
Since the day we talked

I still jump to every message that you send
We need to influence each other, that’s what you said
Let’s help save an endangered animal
Let’s plant thousands of trees
Make a difference by ourselves
Push out this monkey politics

Cause after all
We’ve got dreams we gotta fight to keep alive
After all
We’ve got destinies that we can keep entwined
We’ve got destinies and we can make them shine

I will be afraid to go out there no more
And make a lesson out of the mistakes we’ve done
Spread the love with every word as someone might be listening
Cause I remember when I said
That you will never going to change me

And after all
We’ve got dreams that I’ll be glad to see you achieve
After all
We’ve got destinies we gotta keep entwined
After all
We gotta take the chance and make it right
If you’re still my friend on the other side
And after all
We’ve got destinies we gotta keep entwined
We’ve got destinies and we can make them shine
