Track Name: to a void
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
Track Name: future flames
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
Track Name: shelter song
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
Track Name: a trivial pursuit
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
Track Name: portrait of a figure
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
Track Name: paul
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
Track Name: emma
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
Track Name: the joke
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
Track Name: lee
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
Track Name: ballad of daylight saving
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
Track Name: half a chest
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
