ONLY TWO HEARTS

lean back, move slow / keep it up while words stay cold
you’re stuck, i know / watching hopes until they’re sold

speak up, stutter gold / sharing lungs is all we know
distant lives are getting close / breathing silence as we go

cause it’s only two hearts

search home, stumble less / play the songs that made us fall
quiet lips make sure / sparkling eyes pretend once more

cause it’s only two hearts / going down
why these everlasting things keep turning bad

______________________

INHUMAN

add up your treasury / and cramp all your borrowed funds
poor oh poor you

build your bijou villa / and no place to hide in there
pitiful you

something is coming up

your fear is freezing yourself / and no life seems to be left
love flew out of your veins / stop, soon your heart’s dead

no i can’t stand, no i abhor your fellows and you the most
you’re in for something most inhuman

every monday night / no light for you outside couldn’t be more bright
your spellbinder’s smashing down everyone dignity / and you are still out there

something is coming up

your fear is freezing yourself / and no life seems to be left
love flew out of your veins / stop, soon your heart’s dead

no i can’t stand, no i abhor your fellows and you the most
you’re in for something most inhuman

YES! MISTER

mirror windows surround this bar / screaming out for pointing out left shouts
well she is leaving anyway

felt this freak-out through your phone / losing´s gold if you’re in for something great
you better get that on your board

you mister smartass looked the other way / you mister smartass looked the other way
you mister smartass nearly fucked it up, you mister smartass

you filled up cracking memories / might wanna give this up please for your own sake
she wasn’t with you anyway

surprise, surprise, you might not know / your darkness is her inner disco show
‚cause she has made it anyway

you mister smartass looked the other way / you mister smartass looked the other way
you mister smartass nearly fucked it up, you mister smartass

and all you bigheaded / all you heroes / all of your benefit / thanks a million
and all your sacrifice, all your goodwill / all your so meant honesty / thanks a million
fuck all your hugs / get off this role / swing your hips / through that hole’s left
thanks a million / thanks a million / thanks a million

ARISE

calm down / just broke all my goodwills
and hold me back / beloved oh my patience in me

never thought this may enrage us

it’s so quiet / surrounded by echoes
a little more / you turned to as stranger to me

never thought this may enrage us

you stoke it up / just from the beginning of it
and you smiled / up there in your private raised high

never thought this may enrage us

you lost sight / your backing may break your own neck
and I kneel down / with all of my patience in it

never thought this may enrage us

#PORTEOUVERTE

tic, toc, tic, toc,
i hear you calling / it’s not too late, not too late, not too late at all

tic, toc, tic, toc,
i know you’re out there / it’s not too late, not too late, not too late at all

i’m thrilling all over, all over this

well shit is overrunning this city and is just leaving blood its way
and i can’t help but i’m shivering through this night, i hope you stay
so if you love us love i’m sure we’re gonna make it anyway

tic, toc, tic, toc, not a sway

WHOEVER’S LEFT WILL FALL IN LINE

my eyes keep moving around / anywhere i go
keep thinking i lost myself / faded and absorbed, in a loop i don’t know

can’t read those faces / people pushing by
so many fake smiles / immaculate and cold, radio controlled

i hear the static in erratic times of modern life
fading out in my town – your town

your eyes keep staring out / the windows of the morgue
how could it come to this / is all you wanna know

you hear the static in erratic times of modern life
fading out in your mind – in my mind

in silence, in grace that’s where you find me

______________________

TIME WAS UP

and i was running in contagious water when time was up and i woke up

wait / freeze the scene / fall asleep in case of any other fire
you might increase / you cannot fall asleep / the emptiness
you cannot fall asleep unless / you know what you have done / what you have done
what you should do / the way you travelled all along

and i was running in contagious water when time was up and i woke up

TOLSTOI

doctors spotted all the markings on his skin
and she’s supposed to love him more than anything

and he can’t fake it / he can’t make it / he can’t save it
all in

break it up now, break it up for me

best friends spotted all the markings on her skin
and he’s supposed to love her more than anything

and she can’t make it / she can’t fake it / she can’t save it
all in

break it up now, break it up for me

you all spotted all the markings on my skin
and you’re supposed to love me more than anything

and I can’t make it / I can’t fake it / I can’t save it
all in

break it up now, break it up for me

______________________

CAN’T WE?

if i fell back down / would you lay with me
gazing bricks and fears / can´t we call back home?

and everyone´s trying to live right / and no one is messing it up like me
still i´m okay with doing it this way / okay with doing it this way

if i fell back down / would you swim along
through dark nameless streams / can´t we call back home?

look everyone´s doing this right / and most of them find their place to be
still i´m okay with doing it this way / okay with doing it this way

and all the good ones stumble / all of them feel constrained
yes they are all as anxious / as all of us should be / still i´m okay

can´t we call back home?

______________________

WE ARE

souvenirs from early days / a lonely spot of memory
seesaw through the blinded darkest night / covered by the foggy little quiet again

you are all alone / you are all alone

we are all alone / we are all alone

pick up pieces one by one / a heart, a soul, a minimum
start a fire, burn it down, it might last long but we are gone

building shelters in ourselves / washed away the inner spaces of our grace
kept your heart to minimum of hope / thrown back into the pit of unknown lions again

______________________

NINE HITS

three more days / solitude remains the same
five brief notes / folded all your memories to rubbish
two hours left / i saw you waiting near the barn

heavy eyes we are going through / empty lungs, i´m leading you / broken chest, i´m here too
and whispery silence fills our cup / and i am waiting

nine hits ago / i saw you stumbling backwards down
one hunt to go / collapsing just by loving throughout the years
