Track Name: King Of Frowns
King Of Frowns

Everything has changed over night
The skies are full of atom clouds,
which form an artificial red
and everything around seems dead
I take a one hour shower
Feed my mind with lovely thoughts
Switch on the flatscreen tv
But only me I see
Then leave the house without shoes
as I have the barefoot blues
Through the city in a train
to visit my beloved in vain
In a self pity sea I drown
Baby, I'm the king of frowns
I can be sad as everyone
and after that I won't be done
In a happy sea I'd like to be
Baby, I'm the king of irony
Would you like to be my queen?
And dive with me in the obscene
Take the next train home
and get lost somewhere downtown
Thus it seems I have to walk
Barefooted to myself I talk
Back home I take another shower
to keep me save and warm
to keep away the harm
at least for another hour
In the garden I watch explosions
In a rain of atom bombs
I feel a sudden stroke of lust
as everything turns to dust
Track Name: Bullet For Peace
Bullet For Peace

With an empty sheet of paper
I start anew
it's all for you
With a bullet where it hurts
I start a war,
a war of words
Give me a bullet for my peace
A bullet that doesn't make us bleed
Give me a bullet of deceit
A bullet that doesn't make us bleed
Even though you don't care
I follow you anywhere, anywhere
Even though you don't give a damn
I wanna be your man
With our childhood heroes in mind
we start a new life, new life
Home is always in transit
Whenever we are not in strife
A bullet for peace
A bullet for peace
I emigrate to anywhere
where the grass is greener
Track Name: Don't Belong
Don’t Belong

I am the ghost in a crowded room
Silence creeping up my spine
From the distance I’m watching you
through the darkness you shine
I don’t belong here anymore
I don’t belong here anymore
You are ghost inside my telephone
and I’ll stay strong for many years
Sometimes on the fairground of fears
the apparition disappears
I don’t belong here anymore
I don’t belong here anymore
This is a place where I feel wrong
And in my mind they play your song
Trying to figure out
the secret message of the pain
Trying to figure out
what this is all about
I don’t belong here anymore
Like a creature without head
I don’t belong here anymore
Torn apart and oh so sad
I don’t belong here anymore
As I carry my own cross
I don’t belong here anymore
to celebrate the weight of loss
Leaving the scars behind
the message is to live
Learn and experience
witness and forgive
I don’t belong here anymore
I don’t belong here anymore
I don’t belong here anymore
I don’t belong here anymore
Track Name: The Violent Words
The Violent Words

I try to sing this lonely song in tune
Something beautiful in my times of need
I try to sing a melody for you
May our ragged wounds finally cease to bleed
I try to sing this hymn full of harmony
but miss the right tones with my hoarse voice
I try to play a song of hope for thee
May it drown out all of the white noise
Hours of hoping
Shivers with the mourning bell
Your violent words
A trigger for the pain
The more I change
you can’t keep up with me
Your violent words
are like a weapon of disdain
I try to sing this lonely song in tune
Something beautiful in my times of need
I try to sing a melody for you
May our ragged wounds finally cease to bleed
Track Name: Mysterious Girl
Mysterious Girl

She is a cherub and a queen
These eyes I can’t forget
Abyssal like a starry sea
Her aura seems ablaze
She carries TNT
In her pockets, in her heart
Explosive like volcanoes
But she doesn’t have a name
That’s why I miss
this mysterious girl
I am addicted, I admit
To yearn for you I cannot quit
That’s why I miss
this mysterious girl
Always distant, yet so close
You’re my lover’s grief overdose
She was the queen of the crowd
That’s where I lost her glance
For a moment just our eyes met
These eyes I can’t forget
She was the princess of the dawn
as she was dancing in my heart
Explosive like volcanoes
And I don’t even know her name
I went the sidewalk southwards
Sunken in erotic dreams
I missed the exit long ago
A lifelong trip to see her gleam
That’s why I love you more and more
You are the mirror for my dreams
A game of the extremes
Cause I adore you every day a little more
Even though I don’t know you
in my world our love is true
Track Name: Hipsters & Whores
Hipsters And Whores

There’s a guy lost in this town
That recently I've seen
His story is like those of many
That without home have been
He spits out his Weltschmerz
As he walks along the rails
In Berlin-Kreuzberg past midnight
Tangled are his trails
Waiting for the subway
In a palace under ground
It comes to bring the lost ones home
A deep and roaring sound
Waiting for salvation
In the abyss of the town
The travellers of the night
Big city kings without a crown
Hipsters and whores
whom the young ones adore
A town from within
A heaven of sins
Beggars and thieves
Forgotten believes
Junkies and priests
Some angels at least
He takes the train U8
The line from South to North
Mitten durch die Nacht
Into the morning sun henceforth
Steps out at Kottbusser Tor
To buy some cheap drugs
Takes a walk through Görlitzer Park
And creeps back like a slug
He's sleeping in a backyard
Had an overdose this night
The skies they were ashen
The rats, they sleep beside
Track Name: Nightmare Coming True
Nightmare Coming True

Each time we kiss I feel a spark
It’s like a leap in the dark
When worlds collide, I’d like to be with you
This nightmare, this nightmare’s coming true
When our bleary ghosts embrace
Your soul leaves a distinct trace
Let’s make love when the pain cuts through
This nightmare, this nightmare’s coming true
Each time we kiss I feel divine
It’s like we’re falling out of time
When heavens crash, I’ll stay with you
This nightmare, this nightmare’s coming true
When we sink into oblivion
The sky is bleeding in vermillion
When all falls, I’m feeling very blue
This nightmare, this nightmare’s just for you
Track Name: Secret Hideaway
Secret Hideaway

I have a secret hideaway
A house, a house far from harm

It’s like a cradle full of straw
that keeps me save and warm
The current of the undertow
It carries notions to the shore
I’m sending you a puzzle piece
Pretend that you know what it’s for
I have a secret hideaway
A place, a place that keeps me dry
where oceanic cities grow
The towers reach out to the sky
The flowers of indifference
The gambler with the highest score
I’m sending you a puzzle piece
Pretend that you know what it’s for
Would you stay just for the night
Would you stay this very night with me
In this house of mystery
The basement of my soul
In this house of mystery
play a little symphony!
Down here in emptiness
opens up a secret door
I’m sending you a puzzle piece
Pretend that you know what it’s for
Track Name: WideWideWorld
WideWideWorld

The way so long, the way to go
Will it tear us apart?
There's darkness in our lonely souls
There's darkness in our hearts
The passionate deserts of our lives
covered by blood-red sand
I love the way you move your hips
I love your tender hands
The moon is high, the sun is down
The wide world, how sublime
I've been riding a hundred miles
into the dawn of time
The way so long, the stony way
Wisdsom it may show
There's darkness in our dirty minds
There's darkness where we go
The passionate wastelands of the self
Together we're alone
I love the way you move your tongue
Erotic to the bone
The moon is high, the sun is down
The wide world, how sublime
I've been riding a thousand miles
into the dawn of time
The moon is high, the sun is down
The wide world, how sublime
I've been riding a million miles
into the dawn of time
Track Name: When The Storm Comes
When The Storm Comes

We swallow the sun
and spit out the moon
Drifting away
and sleep until noon
We drown in champagne
as it bleeds from the skies
We drown in champagne
and ask no more whys
When the storm comes
for you I build
A bed in the flood
A raft in the blood
When the storm comes
for you I build
a haven of love
in the clouds above
Termination time again
A bitter explosion
Escape from the rain
A dreadful notion
A dreadful notion
We drown in champagne
as it bleeds from the skies
We drown in champagne
and ask no more whys
I send you flowers all over the globe
while I tie myself with a rope
I salute you with a frown
wearing the clothes of a clown
