Track Name: Dear Shepherd
i wish the day would come
adam n eve would finally say

we´re nothing more than just
a cheap miss-quoted pleasantry

GET BACK
on your knees and rub your eyes in disbelief

SO SAD
you build your faith on fear and knee-deep agony

You justify this lie with 2000 years of crime
How many sheep must die until you realize
the shepherd sends you to your doom

you praise the word of wisdom
we´re blessed with ignorance

immaculate conception?
a drunk night with three kings
Track Name: We're Still Not Getting Anywhere
hey, have you heard the news today?
for your good intentions
it's way too late
the world will end and this is
your very last day

so please don't wail about that
they put forward th clock
stop to cry, open your fists and
wave the world godbye

and it really makes me wonder
will there be honesty at last?
why don't we tell anyone what
we're really thinking
who you're hating
and who you loved the most
about their shady charity that
you neer cared for

hey, guess you heard the news today?
that they made a big mistake
it's now official: tomorrow is
your very last day

you wonder where to put
all your last thoughts and hopes
what is right to say, what is
wrong to feel
what is less, less, less, less, less?

and it teally makes me wonder
is being honest all that bad?
you can try and kill these habits
it would be pointless to regret

when it's the time that we create
a clarity, a little spark of decency

we try so hard but we forget
our honesty, speaking out so carelessly
Track Name: Second To None
So now
so now you´re finally there
a price
to win and time to spare

it´s no more music, it is sport
on the way from art to freedom it got lost

we turn your contets into clay
we aim and shoot the pigeons down

So we sing SING
Forever second best
So we sing SING
Forever second best
Cause we don´t care FOR
the price we´ll never get
That´s why we sing SING
Forever second best

next time
next time
you´ll beat them
tonight
knock-out in the first round

you study speeches, moves, quotes,
master of arts and cheap rip-offs

we turn your judges into clay
i turn and shoot fuckin everyone down

So we sing SING
Forever second best
So we sing SING
Forever second best
Cause we don´t care FOR
the price we´ll never get
That´s why we sing SING
Forever second best
Track Name: Tootles Has Returned To London
where will you be
when you get old
you´ve quit your childish dreams so long ago

get up, get late, go to work, get paid, live your life so one-dimensional
come home, come late, fall apart, every day, wake at night and maybe you think:

and that is all? (hey)
everything that i ever dreamed of is gone
everything had turned black and white
call it a day
pulling out the roadmaps to where i belong
maybe i feel home

who are we when nothing´s left of what we were
(i will never know)

shake of this collar
you´re tied to someone elses
ideals of dreamless, flawless nervelessness

get up, get late, try to work, too late, chase your dreams to live them finally
come home, come late, feel alive, every day, wake at night, maybe you won´t think:

and that is all? (hey)
everything that i ever dreamed of is gone
everything had turned black and white
call it a day
pulling out the roadmaps to where i belong
maybe i feel home

who are we when nothing´s left of what we were
(i will never know)

hey when did you lose your wings
you grew too fast to sing "we are the lost boys"
Track Name: I'll Burn The Rabbit Hole
so many years i run
so many miles i rush

you still get nothing

at least i know a place
a place to call my home

you don´t know nothing

dipping deep into the

past the time, past the hole,
past the rabbit and the clocking role

light a match
light this time
light these hollows they will burn tonight

we turn ourselfs into fireflys and gasoline

let´s close the door for good when
all is said and done
cause there's nothing
there's nothing left

i´ll take a deep breath and it´s
all dead and gone
i want everything
and nothing less

too many messages on my answering machine
too many unheard monologues

we change our worn-out shoes
to something valuable

bring out the best in

everyone and everything
i left a note on the door "please don´t wait for me"


i reach out and i grap the sunset with my heart
cause there´s nothing
and it´s all that´s left

bittersweet chances, opportunitys we´ve missed
and that´s everything
and nothing less

get up, get dressed, get out, get lost
Track Name: Point Blank
we struggle but we pay
the price for our dependency
on smiling hearts and blue-eyed honesty

without a choice you start to sink
beneath a million times of chasing stars
of hopeless fights and dreams we´ll never win

so i´m falling back on answers
accepting lies i told myself
denying what we are and who we´re meant to be

days go by and i go down
i miss the scent i miss the sound
haunting fragments of these times
and of who we´re meant to be

for once i am sincere
about the person i refused to be
the undeniable fact you´re killing me

who would´ve thought that i could make
the same decisions i would never understand
i promised lies just like you promised me

so i´m falling back on answers
accepting lies i told myself
denying what we are and who we´re meant to be

days go by and i go down
i miss the scent i miss the sound
haunting fragments of these times
and of who we´re meant to be
meant to be
Track Name: 50 Frags Win The Match
you haven´t heard
that i had laughed for hours

thank you for proofing me
that loathing you was delighting from the start

how many years it took to see it
that these days i wasted loving you will never come back at all

THIS SONG
was never meant
FOR YOU
to sing along
WITH US

My friend, my affection, no MY FOE!
it´s more than i just don´t care, I don´t care at all
these words are like bullets that´s FOR SURE!
Some things will never change
SOME THINGS WILL NEVER

You haven´t heard
that i had choked for hours
someday somehow you´ll understand
how false you really are

And i hope you won´t mistake me
but these years of wasting time with you will never come back at all

i won´t let you
get away with a slap on the wrist
doesn´t matter what you do
you made your bed NOW YOU MUST LIE IN IT!

you loose and maybe you start listening
you should know 50 frags will never win the game
Track Name: Silly Hats Only
how to be how to act
ask your role models
listen up they will tell you
what is necessary to live conformity

i never claimed to have the answer
i never claimed to know
i never claimed
to be the antidote to you

until the false
until the norm
turned into something beautifull

until the right
turns out so wrong
turns into what you fear the most

please tell me once again
how to be the better man

and we try so hard
we never want to be like you
why do we care so much?
almost pathetic just like you

i become
i become so cynical

i confess
we are all so typical

stereotype

write it down
on your flags
on these banners you carry above your head

count me out
count your guns
pull the trigger with a wagging finger
sometimes against your friends
Track Name: Self-Defeating 101
these tired eyes yearning for sleep
restless doze, so full of bad dreams
so here we go just once again
where's the salvage you believed in?

you fight, you hide, you hold back
for all it was right
so you pay the price
well there is no mistaking inescapability
is calling you out
i am calling you out

they say it's easier take you own blame
two years avoiding solitude
half-hearted coward that's what you are
they say someday you'll be ok
fucking liars that's what they are

you fight, you hide, you hold back
for all it was right
so you pay the price
well there is no mistaking inescapability
is calling you out
i am calling you out
Track Name: ... And The Rusty Trombone
take the good you have
all the best you can
fake a smile cause you won´t need it

throw it away and start to rearrange.

what went wrong?
or has it always been that way?

simplify
the bad, the good, it´s irreplaceable

where is the mark
where´s the silent cue,
the signal to embark
the lifeboats of a different way

revolt, defeat, defining limits for a new
pay out, achieve,

take it back
whtat´s missing for so long

take it back
whtat´s missing for so long

where is the point to be
who we are, who we were

when ´s the day to know
who we will be

turn the page
turn the sound
turn these hearts from inside out

did we miss the point to make a change?

and so we burn burn burn
til the day that we learn
that the world we need to change is inside ourselfs

so many times we tried
so many times we realized
am i too scared to say
someday we´ll be ok!?


and all we have
is a tape to drone out
sit back, rewind and push play
