Track Name: Konstantinopel
Konstantinopel

arriving in a new and unknown town
looking up at faces watching down

strange and different everything i see
and the buildings pressing down on me

breathing down on me this strange new town
crushing me with everything that’s new
leaving me with the feeling like i’ll drown
all i want is someone to help me through

looking out my window into space
a new beginning and a change of pace
searching for a warm and friendly face
someone to help me settle in this place

strange and different everything i see
and the buildings pressing down on me

breathing down on me this strange new town
crushing me with everything that’s new
leaving me with the feeling like i’ll drown
all i want is someone to help me through
Track Name: On This Day (Album Version)
On This Day - Album Version

on this day - we saw each other first
on this day - it came out of the blue
on this day - it felt like something changed
and from this day on - believe me - I’m always

dreaming now
dreaming of you
end the searching boy
dreaming now
dreaming of you

and that night - we shamed the moon
yeah that night - we sowed the seeds of love
that night - we had the best of each other
and from this day on - believe me - I’m always

dreaming now
dreaming of you
end the searching boy
dreaming now
dreaming of you
now we’re on the map

now you
a part of my soul
happy in my realization of my love for you

hand in hand - a dark blue sky
and what may come - we cannot ever know
a cross eyed squirrel - a stuttering owl
and in the end -
i’m your angel and you’re my saint
Track Name: Working Class Hero
Working Class Hero

i don’t want to bring her home
she would be there on her own
and now i see her world is here
and everything for her is clear

why

so tell me now how can you cope
your little bastards and the smoke

you’re the last who gets to know
i’m a working class hero
and no-one buys your little show
so i stand here - please let me go

we fought together on the street
unaware that we would meet
they shut down the factory
the street is our victory

why

and suddenly she stood there
unemployed but not in despair

you’re the last who gets to know
i’m a working class hero
and no-one buys your little show
so i stand here - please let me go

let me go …

we object with a whoop

you’re the last who gets to know
i’m a working class hero
and no-one buys your little show
so i stand here - please let me go
Track Name: Robots
Robots

now we do everything for which we’re trained
carry out what’s required from each of us
every part of our souls is forever damned
finally we know what we have to do
each morning we awake to ugly blindness
otherwise we would meet happily

you don’t know me now
now my own life leaves me lifeless
you don’t know me now
now every part of me leaves me dead

now we do and act and wonder about
yes - again and again without any meaning
everything hot off the press is old and boring
we remain faithful to the damnation

you don’t know me now
now my own life leaves me lifeless
you don’t know me now
now every part of me leaves me dead

our field of freedom is a battlefield
where ‘shoulds’ and ‘wants’ control our lives
but in the background someone pulls the strings
all of our decisions are empty and hollow

you don’t know me now
now my own life leaves me lifeless
you don’t know me now
now every part of me leaves me dead
Track Name: Home
Home

sometimes we need no words
sometimes we do not speak
togetherness can hurt
on the summit we collide
our home is our shelter
in consequently white
together we are one
together we’re alone

I saw you in a backyard
we bought a light - something needs to be
Yes we speak and we go down to …
calm and brightness - surrounded and inside
nice to have your own sweet and sour soup
now we know how to ride the triple open loop
every word drenches our souls
wow - its the biggest, biggest gift at all

You can lie to me

solitary all the time
closeness a real treat
and this is why we go
a shared residence
an ambush is your goal
my laughter drowns your cries
together we are one
together we’re alone

I saw you in a backyard
we bought a light - something needs to be
Yes we speak and we go down to …
calm and brightness - surrounded and inside
nice to have your own sweet and sour soup
now we know how to ride the triple open loop
every word drenches our souls
wow - its the biggest, biggest gift at all
Track Name: Sometimes (The White Single)
Sometimes

again - this year you were searching
trying to reach the sun
but now i’m feeling like somebody
you think you need someone

sometimes when it’s right
two worlds will rise tonight
you keep on going down
complete with a golden crown

the end is here - you’re crouching
arrival of a son
we have created somebody
a joy for everyone

sometimes when it’s right
two worlds will rise tonight
you keep on going down
complete with a golden crown

once a year the snow will fall
and children - what a sight
lit up tree and silent bells
a star that shines so bright
today

sometimes when it’s right
two worlds will rise tonight
you keep on going down
complete with a golden crown
Track Name: We´ll Meet Again (Album Version)
We´ll Meet Again - Album Version

Famous for faster give me a smile
all wooden puppets in the pyle
you are gold
looking for numbers charming and true
great seven, three and the holy two - us two

pick me up tonight
‘cause there’s a midnight sun over the blue calm lake scene
pick me up tonight
at the edge of the night - wondering if curfew or skylark

flotsam increasing here on the floor
echoes coming and living next door
there is no leak
the wild storm screams what’s up with you
to foot the bill is to misdo

pick me up tonight
‘cause there’s a midnight sun over the blue calm lake scene
pick me up tonight
at the edge of the night - wondering if curfew or skylark
Track Name: Hellishly - Here We Go
Hellishly - Here We Go

we are here to entertain you
haemoglobin, beats and flashing lights
yes you made a mistake - but we won’t
the smell of boiling pleasures
eyes are filled with liquid treasures
which we’ll need tonight - but you won’t enjoy

don’t say you really didn’t know
every word grabs your mortal soul
now you’re feeling soft and relaxed not low
you dance - ‘cause hellishly - here we go

we are here to paralyse you
our dry ice blurs the border
party until dawn - but we won’t
a taste of floating passion
your face begins to ashen
now begins the fun - but you won’t enjoy

don’t say you really didn’t know
every word grabs your mortal soul
now you’re feeling soft and relaxed not low
you dance – ‘cause hellishly - here we go

you find the message is conveyed
and now you soak up our masquerade
you’re scared you like what’s in your brain
and you can’t make out if it’s pleasure or pain

don’t say you really didn’t know
every word grabs your mortal soul
now you’re feeling soft and relaxed not low
you dance - ‘cause hellishly - here we go
Track Name: Desert Island
Desert Island

the day is ending
and the night is calling
so we take the trawler
as the last boat

stand still and now turn around
your eyes capture what the others fail to see
that's our unbroken dream
compelling - your silence is moving me

the day is ending
and the night is calling
so we take the trawler
as the last boat

you were the only one
i took here to share beauty second to none
such splendour you don’t recall
you cry in silence - it's not a fake at all

the day is ending
and the night is calling
so we take the trawler
as the last boat

don’t stop …

the day is ending
and the night is calling
so we take the trawler
as the last boat
Track Name: You Will Leave
You Will Leave

everything is quiet and heavenly here
with tremulously you spoke to me
you won´t be mine
you won´t be mine
well you spoke a little bit
you don’t want - not to have been
you will not sacrifice yourself
sacrifice, won´t sacrifice myself

you won´t …
things are gonna change my world
things are gonna find their way
You will pray and i´ll leave
now you´re drunk and insane
you wanna go, you can´t leave

Don’t say, you’re not mine
i don´t believe in here and now
you wanna be someone
and someone else draws the lines?
you want a break but I’m not gonna sacrifice myself
i want to go, and don´t trust myself
You no longer believe in me
Please don´t leave
You no longer believe in me


You don´t improve yourself
all about me, all about you
you will go in travesty
you will bide your time
you will set me free

You will …

now you spoke a little bit
now you’re gonna change
you wanna explore me
now you’re gonna change
you´ll be by your side
you´ll be back with hope
you will challenge yourself
you will come along

You will …

the mallets stroke down, too
in prospect of better news
