Track Name: (way to) King 2
(...what do you want? Tell the man that I'm sorry but I can't find your mom, tell the man that I'm sorry but I can't)

I walked out the other day and confetti fell on my head like a bomb
With cold feet inside my shoes what's the point about truth?

Don't surrender just ignite the golden fires at night
You and I once built a tent, right now the window is my friend

Cause all you call mysterious is out there and the asking, too

For a moment I believed that the villain is the thief
And the witches and magicians and the fairies for the wishing
were out of life

Follow me behind the stairs where we sooner did our prayers
We are free behind the fence, right now the doors are all my friends

Play a song to bring me higher, out of these walls full of wires
Track Name: Rats
When you asked me if I stay for the night and I went home
I was about to go but then you came and tried, now I'm home

And you say when you'll go where the potatoes grow I will cry,
But see, tears and waters flow all over and out of you
and so do I
It takes wind or some time to dry

When you asked me if I stay for the night and I went home
In bed I heard the rats chasing round me in the walls
like a rain of stones
Reminds me of the time when I was 10 and you grew old
Daytime was for friends and in the night I prayed for gold
and the day to come it will shine for everyone
and for the day it shines for you

Tell an empty road how you get rid of girls
Can you believe your eyes
Who knew you'd really buy that I'd go only for a ride

He left us long ago, do you not remember?
So you'll never know, but bet he is fine and really off the radar
again and again...
Track Name: Time to run
If you had lived in early 1930s
wouldn't you have thought that will be great
When nobody knew what to go for,
when nobody knew what to say
And before you see your children crying and your friends
you fall for evil things


I'll tell you this before I forget it
Parts come and something goes every day
But for all the sad friends of nobodys who went to heaven before they were grey
Til at least there finally in your bedroom stands a man
What a sight

If you call yourself unstoppable you should wonder, ask yourself
Are you really that invincible or did you see someone else is?
No you say your dancing got colder and the times you party got rare
As you sit on your friends cold shoulder you bury your hands in the hair

Better you go, you've been in the sun
Better you go, before it's time to run

Some are giving up for no reason
It takes down and home to the kids
How could you live, you got to believe it
You have to bury the dust to grow rich
Nowadays you rest in your corridor
Everything's old, everybody's gone
You thought you had a smile that can't be beaten
and everybody knows you don't like it when you're wrong

Sitting in the park and you look very sad
cause someone sneaks behind you with a baseball bat

So you never know
Sorry you wake up in rain
Changes always come
by you like a train
Track Name: Rose hips
Are you ready for some action?
Better you believe, son
Are you ready for some action?
Better you believe

Some say he's a former ninja, some say he's not
Sit down we sing his song, come here and sing along

I can make you feel better,
now show me you're a believer
And I will show you mine,
but now show me yours, Sabrina

'No I'm not that kind of girl',
she said she won't
Some call it hair of gold,
some say it's blonde

At times I am a little scared that something isn't right
Noone comes to party in the corner of my mind

It blew my mind at age 15
watching lovers do that thing
I peeled rose hips for a girl and stuck it
in the collar of her shirt
to make her burn
Track Name: Body poetry
I don't know what to say
when the bodies in my way
feel the same as mine
being right in their way, I don't know...

I heard something in the coffee
is as bad as eating candy
If you have a lot your bones
get a coffee colour
will make you weak

Slowly I wake up
and it's almost 2 o'clock
When my kitchen has a grape
I'll get purple pretty bones, so funny

Something's wrong with my tides
but it feels so right to be up late
and have the birds early
sing me to sleep

If you're going somewhere nice
to a safari in the wild or a lonely bay
It's not easy to be righteous on the beaches

I dont know what to say
to a sun that hits my brain
inside I think it should be alright for me
to be in it's way
I don't know

Ohh...
Only idiots try
and what I didn't die of sends me home
Track Name: Dusty love
Time is lost when all my teeth go
blind in front of many black lights
because of all what's in between my teeth

It's nice to know you barely speak
In language I've been really weak
since someone made the words jump off my lips

I told him about my job that day
he just kept talking on and on and...
Say to who the fuck do you really care

So what's moving me I keep inside my eyes
cause it'd be pretty wild
to let it out not knowing where to go

I saw him and he said he's sorry
He asked me how I've been and I said 'Fine'

But now I turn my face to you
with all my socks in apple juice
The water is getting flavors from the brain

The love I make is feeling dusty
If you'd be in and all around me
maybe someone else'd just make it worse

But trying is in the world today
I feel like it's not far away from you
Sticky skin is what I'd like you in

Cause birds they all believe in trees
like all your lips believe in me
as someone who could maybe change a night

Some really dusty, some really dusty love

Cause what this song about is why
it's baby sounds I sing and cry
And that's the one I'm only good at, too
Track Name: Eye on you
I said I'd have an eye on you
to everyone and to myself
For days it's us but noone else,
don't stop walking in the snow
Never stop when its that cold
Life was slow, then started to run
In '95 and it's on and on
Now far away, but I still hear you

Sorry, where do we go
Ready, so we do
Sooner or later you'll be off the radar
Let it be your fault
It still feels like the way we are

You're still my favorite

Since we shared our favorite taste,
since that day well things have changed
You say 'It's sad to see your soul's smelly
at least try to keep it clean'
I don't want to try, I try all the time
when I'm dancing for money
Say goodbye when you go for a walk
cause noone knows what you feel

Sometimes we wait for reasons to hate you
My hearts not easy,
maybe never will be blow-dried and needing water
cause its always raining somewhere
Yeah, you're still following us

You're still my favorite
Still my favorite
Track Name: Diving school
Life is bending you so fast
in a town where ease has passed away
I found a place where the sun sits in a grave
After night no morning light

You dive in the water like a pirate
Sometimes I don't know what you think is wrong
Maybe when it's everywhere I'll stay
Your head has changed when you're so far away

When you go next time please tell me

Life's so fast when youre around
But the hometrain doesn't stop for hours and days
Even halfway would be really far
and there's always something in the way

Shadows in the waves but you still guide us
You swim or as fish would say you still go
Someone needs an 'apologize'
Some bodies slowly fall
to where no sun will rise

I turn on lights, it's kitchen time
Flies take off and roaches hide
You and me are all my guests
Here's a place where noone lasts
Track Name: Roll like dice
And he said: 'Fine, don't go in too far,
kids always want to go finding'
And they know for sure, things are not so real
when they come out of the blue

Every girl gives a dollar when you say
it's something boys look surprised in
But every man needs a woman
and every woman needs a man

The stones underwater roll like dice
to you and shoot close like a rocket
Sea horses and the carps never go alone
and come near fast as the wind

Take a look around, ask all your friends and see
only you think im kidding
From the belly of a whale ain't never coming back here
who takes this as a joke

And he said 'Girl, don't go in too far,
kids always want to go fighting'
And they know for sure things are not so real
when they come fast as the wind

'No' he said 'boy, nightmares come out of your closet
like skirts in the night'

At times I feel all at once and open
but I'm never wild
Track Name: We can't
I thought I'll be sick but now I'm better
I told my friends I don't have time
They'll come from far away to see me
but not from New York City
