to a void 02:19
when was it you chose to call this the world it might be gross for it ain´t nothing but a curse you say naked as a wall we stand naive as a knife i cut my own two hands so you took the door that leads to the floor and you open windows that slowly slowly sink in and i dropped a needle in the sand i pushed buttons that blink and never return they blink in every turn we blink and never return
2.
you took a brush to the violet tree i took a break from the violent sea let´s take a walk in our forensic forest i stick my tongue out you stick your tongue out these are humble explosions this is public intimacy those are awkward volcanoes this is all but grey theory you dropped the keys at the childhood department i left my wallet at the laundromat we passed the gates to the holy church of market put on your ninja shoes put on my ninja shoes these are silver seperations this is crossing a red line those are the blissful accusations there is nothing but this time would probably drown in your playground eyes they saw it all before the ambulance arrived could possibly drink from your fire escape eyes they burn it all down in front of our stainless steel minds the ambulance arrived the ambulance arrived i chew a leave of the violet tree you brought a brush from the violent sea let´s make a vow in our forensic forest i cut your tongue out you cut my tongue out

shelter song 02:55
the secret life of your walking frame standing by the window observing owls to the true nature of that corridor echoes echo we´re stuck in the traffic while the trains pass we´re trapped in translation while the years fly by don´t you lose your temper in this ghost town darling echoes echo echo let go your far-fetched smile inside a paperback/ paper bag contours of a landslide on your vest they kept your files locked for the sake of it you kept your eyes closed echoes echo while echoes echo there it goes there it goes
4.
you are the loneliest planet on earth you are many you are diverse you are the longest walk in outer space you are a beauty you are of grace i can´t believe this is all there is i won´t proceed without thinking about who pressures and who measures the people and the world the people and the world what you just said does not sound true to my ears what you declare how could it ever be right here oh we will gather yes we will gather one day one beautiful day it all depends on where the question mark ends it all depends on the great new president the old scenario and hey haven´t you a wish to see it through i wish to see it trough don´t wrap more magazines around your forehead don´t throw your clumsy and fragile friends away if that´s a silhouette - that´s not a silhouette that´s me as i am trying to be (free) when we woke at the factory i drank from the oil to see if it healed the machines if it killed the machines when we woke at the factory i ate from the lead to see if it healed the machines if it killed the machines if it healed the machines

employee of the month in the labor of waiting let´s pronounce our names right here pronounce our names right here decision of the week at the office for pure bleeding do they screen our lungs right here they screen our lungs right here and as a background we lay while the homeless city runs through our veins and all our columns and rows they collapse from the weight of the rain student of the year at the faculty for binge eating let´s pull out some souvenirs pull out some souvenirs judgment of the day at the center for obedience is there anything to handle with care to handle with care and in the foreground you see how the homeless city is on its way and all our comments and posts they collapse from the weight of the rain and as a background we lay while the homeless city runs through our veins and all our columns and rows they collapse from the weight of the rain emotion of a lifetime what is it you believe in or is it you to believe in

a childhood at a parking lot your friends say they visit you soon before you go on vacation to the living room of a dentist where the table cloths show elephants the curtains do speak of thin air and the moths look like a reference to the magic tricks of the great bear bare bone is there something you would call your own a shopping cart on a frozen lake your parents keep counting from ten see the headlines with employment rates and announcements for garage sales when the sparrows fly from blue to black and sheets of white will cover your neck the fields they turn from green to grey nutrition facts fell from the sky that day bare bone is there something we could call our own and in slow motion the landscapes collide "would you pay some attention?" "can i steal your time?" and in reverse the landlord walks by "is this place of your avail?" "do i owe you a smile?" and in slow motion the landscapes unite "would you pay some attention?" "may i steal your time?" and like a reflection they leave you behind break lose from the branches did they hear your advice

so how did you cross your side of the water i was leaning against an ocean within and it is so hard to describe your daughter she was swaying like fifteen birches before the rain she said: one shout goes out to the railroad whale she said: one shout goes out to the snowflake that burns half a heart ago there was a backyard trail connecting dots with arrows with hands rocks and sparrows that land dogs with sorrows that end right here for you walk like a tree you don’t to walk like a reason
8.
the joke 04:32
i was wearing the joke like a too thin jacket on a cold but bright winter day the cost of living it increases like insane that´s what you got from the news and all rights are reserved by last years bruises are they gone where do we stay when the nights might return in their most violent way and now your muscles ache from the reasonable drugs and my mind got stuck in the ceiling above and now our bones rotate in a garbage truck and the skin it burns from the ropes and the scarves are you okay? i was carrying the stroke like a rare colour somewhere near my throat you suppose this is a joke while we propose to take a long walk in the woods or let´s just say once your parents got divorced you could see x-ray while the stars turn around the world stops spinning to leave us upside down and now your muscles ache from the reasonable drugs and my mind got stuck in the ceiling above and now our bones rotate in a garbage truck and the skin it burns from the ropes and the scarves are you okay? i was sharing the joke like a last thing left untold before we drown ourselves please put the picture back on the shelf how to arrive in time how to preserve this thin line of hope it´s in our hands the weight gets heavier as we pull on both ends

you told us it was god who dared to paint all your toenails pink paint all your toenails pink you gave them a pair of socks in return and you noticed it was strange to meet at the co-drinking spaces and now it´s time for you to leave your house lives by the shore curiosity choreography solidarity curiosity you showed us how to comb our teeth to brush our hair and fold our ears you taught us child position is the fear of falling through the moon i did the slowest sun salvation ever seen embarassment the new common sense a cheap collage a holy friend who knows home is where your breathing grows possibility sweet emergency four times five makes three so fuck off hierachy
10.
oh it´s a hidden november in your lemongrass shell and it´s a charcoal heart that the stars can tell unlike a brittle agenda on your chamomile wrist more like a bunch of sayings that the wind will twist and would you wait for what do you wait for sun on the ground below a meadow of anger is where the needs do grow i found them hard to remember but there is a sudden glow between the chimney and your shoulders i hear the flying fish bark is there a chance that they told us how to cut through the dark and would you wish for what do you wish for stone in the sky and now we sum up all the borders just to make a clear line hey could you straighten out the corners for the passing of time how to appreciate those rumors without a recipe for junk or do we leave it to the dust balls to cover question marks and would you care for what do you care for water into snow

half a chest 02:33
so how on earth could we get so flagrant and how the hell could we go so far you keep your breath and hold your savings it´s easy to blame everyone for the harm removing barricades from an empty room your gaze holds an atmosphere i can´t prove once you bottle your hopes you loose your fragrance this place is a swing state we call a heart now kill two stones with just one bird and wait for the witness to disappear delete each protocol of our toy gun blues be sure to make sure we shed no tears
