Track Name: shine in the dark
don´t you know i have been waiting for you
but these words don´t sound like rain
more like a snowflake under my tongue
the one that´s getting thin
we´re getting thin

and don´t you know that summer will arise
and you should come along
we would go out to find the right place
the one where we belong
where we belong

and don´t you know that we will lay down
at night in the park
between the flowers and the velvet grass
we would shine in the dark

shine in the dark
shine in the dark
in the dark
Track Name: april city speed bump blues
trouble in your eyes
there´s trouble in your eyes
and i can see

you stumble over lies
you stumble over life
like me

the car is on the road
the lights are out
the car is on the road
the lights are out

going with the pain
living with the same
tragedy

until someone comes along
and you can sing your songs
about disease

the love it is there
you can not feel
the love it is there
you can not feel
Track Name: season song
winter i feel stupid now
in my house that has no walls
with a soul that was the prisoner
of the early songs i know

spring it´s getting better now
i don´t scare myself to death
i will follow your footprints to
all the places that i´ve missed

summer here we go again
while we feed ourselves some light
while we are holding a stranger´s hand
on a rooftop late at night

autumn you are back somehow
i still recognize your face
but where are all your children gone
are they trading memories
Track Name: combine me
in the land of thought
they would never touch you
for you were brought here
on a single word

and for a single day
you´d find your private letter
you´d find your private home
life after the blank page

and your heart
full of fragments
a fragrance of grey


there´s a man smashing doors
a little dark dragon under the floor
there´s a man smashing doors
his face is hidden a beautiful voice

there´s a man and he smashes doors
his face is hidden right under the floor
a little dark dragon smashing a door
his face is hidden a beautiful voice

come bite me
combine me
come fight me
allrighty
Track Name: ballad of joy
this is the ballad of joy
it is not about the royal family
it´s not a christian song at all
more like a strange phone call
that will take you down

on an elevator trip from your finger tip to the toe
or a fast car going from the bank rubbery to the zoo

take me to the zoo
take me to the zoo


this is the ballad of the sunrise
a little eastern thingy about not being wise
and i cook my food with a lot of different spices
and i notice the people and all of their advices

cause they take me to the hospital
they take me to a fancy hotel room
and i have seen what they call the ocean
and it is blue

the ocean it is blue
the ocean it is blue


this is the ballad of the great relieve
an oversea ticket from the joker to the thief
i am not meant to stay but i am meant to be right here
we float around in circles and i walk on to the end of the peer

where they handed me a suitcase
and a flower and a picture of you
they handed me a broken tambourine
and the handed me some glue

they handed me some glue
they handed me sone glue


a picture of you
an ocean that is blue
take me to the zoo
and take me to your toe

oh take me to your toe
oh take me to your tofu
oh take me to your ufo

you take me to your ufo
and let´s go
Track Name: to you
for the first time
the first time in years
the trees brought their colors to me and

i will hold on
i will hold my breathe
can´t you see


and the last time
the last time in years
those streets looked the same to me and

i will go on
i will go away
would you be waiting


and the sun will rise
and the wind will come
and the moon might fall

the sun will rise
the wind will come
and i will be waiting
Track Name: the autist
is it true that you turn blind
if you hate what you see
i am your spiritual joke machine

how do you know
where did it go

i could speak
and talk the world away
but they are staring
back at me

everywhere
everywhere i go
anywhere
anywhere i go


with the birds i wait
for the sun to rise
on the seventh floor
a melody in my ears
Track Name: jesus came closer
get on up
on a winter day
i can feel your bones

you can have it all
you can sell it to them
i will give you more

the way you disappear
the way i close my eyes
colors on tv

i won´t decide
i will collide
i am wild and free


they will watch me die
and they will watch me die
they will watch me die
and the devil will watch me fly
Track Name: a day in june
i would like to sit down
and watch the world
count the clouds
take it slow

and i would write a letter
to a friend of mine
the one who is living
in the south

and i would like to have no explanations
there´s nothing to say & nothing to lose
just like a train between the stations
a man of trees & out of the blue
out of the blue
Track Name: the ghost
you crossed your heart out
with your bones

and the summer
it is gone

too many people
too many
people
