Track Name: Dead City
There´s a voice
From out of nowhere
And there’s no pills in my bag anymore
Are you real,
Or just in my mind
But get me out of this awful place
Brother moon
And sister sun
Dance with me through the galaxy
There’s a light
So tangibly far
How long does the kerosene last?
And someone flew there right, over the stage
To save the world
Someone walks on, across the lake
Do you know why?
Making wine from water
But all I want is just a piece of bread
Came as a friend, go as a stranger
Or can you make them use their minds at last?
And someone flew there right, over the stage
To save the world
Someone walks on, across the lake
Don´t ask me why
And no one flew there
Into this world anymore
And no one walks on, over the lake
Never again
Track Name: Blue Made Two
You’re strolling everyday
Between Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Both are well placed in your brain
But there is no fire door
Chasing flaming rainbows
And listening to the growing meadow
And close on the heels
The devil’s brain police
Two and two, makes blue for you
And close on the heels
The devil’s brain police
You know well, in the land of the blind
The one-eyed man will be king
Go there sweet fool and be the queen
And let the stupids grow grey
And close on the heels
The devil’s brain police
Track Name: 15 Minutes
You may know that kind of telling
About a man, let’s call him Kevin
Got blue-eyed sight and he’s humble, too
Not the brightest light that’s ever shone
Goin’ one step forward, two steps back
Step into the next sand-trap
He’s the one who turns the switch on
While he stumbles, or he’s on the run
The spot light’s on him and they’re chanting Kevin
Blast dreams away and let’s deal with the devil
15 minutes dreaming of fame
A shine of glory turns into blame
15 Minutes become a shame
A common bloke just remains the same
Things, they shine from afar
Pale down, the closer we are
An ocean full of cheers
Turns into a broth of bad fears
Things, we had done
Haunted us like a tail of a dog
We had brewed, so we must drink
15 minutes dreaming of fame
A shine of glory turns into blame
15 Minutes become a shame
A common bloke just remains the same
Track Name: New Love
You used to be my friend
And now we are opponents
So we got close. ‘Till the end
And this message I send to you
Is for setting us free
Leaving it all behind
You could be my new love
Beating it all off my mind
You could be my friend
Why are you staring at me?
I couldn’t wait and drink some tea
You taste so sweet let’s take a ride
Now we’re combined till the end
Leaving it all behind
You could be my new love
Beating it all off my mind
You could be my friend
Track Name: Heat Of The Moon
Just a passing thought of you
Leaves the moon aflame in blue
And the stars up there
Are sparkling to your heartbeat
Just a passing thought of you
And the speakers start to drone
And a whistle blows your words away
Until it drives me insane
But I still
Feel the heat of the moon
Every bad word you said
It’s like a dead light on the way
Sent from a fallen star
Straight through my heart
But I still
Feel the heat of the moon

Every second I mull over you
It’s one too many, and one less too
I can hear from afar
The blue flower withering.
But I still
Feel the heat of the moon
Track Name: Motormouth Girl
When you stroll by the lake
Rotten trees are rising
Every branch
Starts supersizing
Is the earth above
Or heaven below
Do we fall into the sky
Why does heartache grow
Motormouth Girl, Motormouth Girl
Lying beneath you means the world
Why do we destroy the things we love the most
When you chew on my thumb
Until 5 in the evening
Until we’re sober again
And broken clocks start moving
I changed the sheets for you
You changed sad to gladness
Would change all gold into
The stains on our mattress
Motormouth Girl, Motormouth Girl
Lying beneath you means the world
Why do we destroy the things we love the most
Track Name: Burning Land
Summer is the cruellest time
Since we agreed that the age is thus
Her big blue eyes were shut
While I was fishing orchards in them
Lonely rose the beating sun
If there were water, we would run
Drafting a world without you
It’s like acid runs through my veins
Leaving behind, the orchids burning
Leaving behind, burning land
Lonely rose the beating sun
If there were water, we would run
I’m quicker than the grief
Uncloud the dead land
Open up for the northern light
Lonely rose the beating sun
If there were water, we would run
Track Name: The Way To Be
I weigh myself in complacency
Like a flag in the wind
I show color, je suis Charlie
Everything has meaning,
in the lifetime of an emoji
I weigh myself in vanity
Because I ride on top of the wave
But I'm not in the mood right now
Cause it seems their pills aren’t acting no more
Let’s dance the night away
As if there’s no tomorrow
Let’s drink the bland life well
To keep things away, they’ll never be
Keeping quiet, suits them too
But their words will follow deeds
Dig in the dirt like Catholics do
And then wash their hands like Pilate
Before the hen clucks 3 times
You won’t speak that language anymore
And now you find yourself
On their pyre
Let’s dance the night away
Like there’s no tomorrow
And we drink our bland life well
To keep things away, they’ll never be
