Dead City 04:49
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

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

15 Minutes 03:56
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

New Love 03:21
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

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

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

Burning Land 04:28
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

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
