Track Name: Avalanche Of Fear
Avalanche Of Fear

when the night is dark

and my sleep not deep enough
opening my eyes

I scan the stars in the heavens above

then I wonder to myself

who am I, what’s my purpose ?
different thoughts run through my mind
never felt so blind

an alien emotion
(what is it ?
)
as if I lose myself
(what is it ?)
grainy images
(what is it ?)
I fear the truth

I look back on my youth
from the pages of my diary
I was able to think

and use the lobus frontalis

so I wonder to myself

why mankind became so digital ?
the most beautiful things in life
are now buried alive in a cloud

progression
(how is it ?)
if we lose ourselves
(how is it ?)
renaissance
(how is it ?)


the code for peace
will we ever break it ?

how ?

(what is it ?)

that brought us here
(what is it ?)

we need to hear

(what is it ?)

won’t you stop to consider
(let’s stop this)

avalanche of fear

(what is it ?)

that brought us here
(what is it ?)

we need to hear
(we’re passing)

the last frontier
(we’re not drowning by an)

avalanche of fear
Track Name: Touch
Touch

touch touch touch
so so much
touch touch touch
so so much

you do it again
you fill my room with vapor
senses play tricks on me
logical thinking ends here

my hand guids a pen
on a blank sheet of paper
pure pop poetry
transfer
peer to peer

touch touch touch
(I need you) so so much
(a tender) touch touch touch
(could change my life) so so much

(I want to) touch touch touch
(I need you) so so much
(a tender) touch touch touch
(I love you) so so much

you do it again
you fill my world with magic
bodies like sculptures
only the good thoughts survive

show me a good face
life´s greekly tragic
full of emotions
gathered in a hive

touch touch touch ...

a changing perspective
once passive now active
like a dog locked away in a hutch
I long for a human touch

touch touch touch ...

let yourself go
perfection means boredom
open your mind for
sensual wisdom
Track Name: The Boxer
The Boxer

flying to the east
to ease
some pain
watch the media
to tell us what's going on

there is a man who wants this job so much
they call him the boxer
he could be
a good man in the clutch

no he couldn't
he just thinks he could
it's a fake movement !
let's get over it

identified
justified
calculate the profit !
get over it !

every little gesture
makes impression
every word you'll speak
will peak so strong

we really can't talk to you right now
they've hacked your smartphone somehow

tonal footsteps
make a sad melody
territorial visions
chapters of bigotry

we were so close
too close for our foes
no cameras for a speech
you're their critical overdose

the boxer
depends on strength
for the winning punch
eye to eye

unjustified
facts denied
calculate the chaos
get over it !

the boxer
he knows how to loose
the boxer
still wise enough to choose

.... another option
Track Name: Postfuneral
Postfuneral

my world's been hit by an asteroid
destruction here and there
there really is no shield to keep you safe
it's a catastrophe you simply can't avoid

I’m no longer complete
since your heart stopped its beat
a life non-linear
you found peace after all

got a compass inside
for a strange world outside
my behaviour has changed
into postfuneral

forseen but still surreal
losing you was the consequence of
perseverance made of steel

so it's up to me
to let you go
when it was up to you
to change your life
you didn't do so

I’m no longer complete
since your heart stopped its beat ...

I wish I could hear your voice right now
(impossible)
I reach out for your ghostly appearance
(somewhere) somehow
Track Name: Firewall
Firewall

social life
so you are what you post
then be careful
what you say
don’t forget - they save everything

play the game
don’t look forward
look back
to the past that was
so much fun
and when love was the answer

of everythng done or denied
you were my breaktrough
true love personifed

because the world can seem so large
for such an old heart
and my fear is too much

you’re my all
you’re my love
you’re my firewall
you’re my love
you’re my all

modern life
say it loud , spread the word
they won’t listen to
what you fear
don’t forget - they’ve created this

blue box world
in which we play a part
of naivety
like a child
not knowing what’s good for us

of everythng done or denied
you were my breakthrough
true love personifed

because the world can seem so large
for such an old heart
and my fear is too much


you’re my all
you’re my love
you’re my firewall
you’re my love
you’re my all
Track Name: My Neighbour Is A Sculpture
My Neighbour Is A Sculpture

my neighbour is a sculpture
which may appear abstract
he invites me to a dialogue
between the artist and me

I look through my window
and see you
I´m calming down
thanx to you
two different worlds of art
collide
inspiration runs through me
what a beautiful life

creativity is a vagabond
it´s here today and gone tomorrow
Track Name: Still The Same Revolution But Only Without Me
Still The Same Revolution But Only Without Me

look around you
picturesque landscapes
all yours, my friend

hear their laughter
take some rest
from the violent stand

this new world's made of glass
so fragile

it hurts me much
to see you crush
the people around us

an ideal, nonesuch
maybe a bit much
enough space for love and lust

I'm bored by it all
I don't want to fall
this is my moment to leave

it's still the same revolution,
but only without me

look around you
damnable terror
Maximillien

hear their watchwords
a fatal voyage
on the wave of violence

my hope is made of glass
don't break it

it hurts me much
to see you crush
the people around us

an ideal, nonesuch
maybe a bit much
enough space for love and lust

I'm bored by it all
I don't want to fall
this is my moment to leave

it's still the same revolution,
but only without me


you go too far
what about our noble motives ?
I cannot find any common sense
in what you've recently done


you've created a monster
hunting,killing, guzzling
I don't want to be a part of it
when we all started
it somehow felt like fun

it hurts me much
to see you crush
the people around us

an ideal, nonesuch
maybe a bit much
enough space for love and lust

I'm bored by it all
I don't want to fall
this is my moment to leave

it's still the same revolution,
but only without me
Track Name: Arithmetic
Arithmetic

enumeration
of what bothers me
in October 2015

the re-invention of
the cold war, global warming -
nitty-gritty

the status quo of love has changed
but not for me 'cause I'm old-fashioned

it means a lot
it means everything to me
It defines a human being

there comes a time in life
when you aim for the light
planet earth is a mother for me
on a higher state of mind

do you know your ethical standards -
or at least a mathematical average ?
Track Name: A Love Butterfly Effect
A Love Butterfly Effect

driven to distraction
blood pressure rising high
two mono signals
become stereo hi-fi

but you
you just take
you don't give
anything back

I will leave
you right now
you drop
I drag


it's a universal language
spoken by the heart
better than nanotechnology
meet your counterpart


I don't want to suffer from
(a love butterfly effect)
careful - it hurts one !
(a love butterfly effect)
it can't be undone
(a love butterfly effect)
a love butterfly effect

browsing dating portals
a world so sterilized
do you think the lonely hearts there
could be synchronized ?

but you
you just talk
you don't think
as if you sleepwalk

I will wake
you up now
before you
fall off
Track Name: I Only Wanted To Be An Orchestra
I Only Wanted To Be An Orchestra

redeeming
all those bad bills
they need to be paid

mainstreaming
the hardware decides
who's hot and who's not

daydreaming
co-existance in a
valueless biz

no scheming
whoever signes me
gets the full me

how can you play me
and not pay for it ?
I'm not a public benefit

never found the perfect formula
I only wanted to be an orchestra

let's be cool
and turn the radio off
such violence and nonsense
in almost every word

never tried to be a superstar
I only wanted to be an orchestra

songwriting
I clamber
on the music scale

sheet lightning
energy hidden
in a cloudy me

I am thankful
for nice words
feeding my heart

I am hateful
when I see the misuse
of power and law

how can you play me
and not pay for it ?
I'm not a public benefit

never found the perfect formula
I only wanted to be an orchestra

let's be cool
and turn the TV off
such violence and nonsense
in almost every scene

never tried to be a superstar
I only wanted to be an orchestra
