Track Name: Simulator
Simulator

Right
I got the feeling that something's wrong
It may be your fault I guess
Well talk on, we'll see who's right
Oh maybe something that I said?
This discussion's breaking down
We better quit here right now

Right
There is a difference in speak and talk
I won't explain that to you now
But I thought you know about that type
Of conversations
Oh please spare me
It's embarecing to see

Just another simulator
Just another simulator
Just go on, let's simulate right now

In a way I could use
Something beautiful to smash
Just go on and you lose it
Doesn't matter anyhow

Right
I tried to give away to score your mood
But it's tearing me apart
Cos it's give and take and get
So if you try again next time...
...will there be a next time or just

Just another simulator
Just another simulator
Just go on and simulate right now

Right
I got the feeling that something's wrong
It may be your fault I guess
Just another simulator
Or maybe something that I said?
This discussion's breaking down
We better quit here right now
Just another simulator
Just go on, let's simulate right now

In a way I could use
Something beautiful to smash
Just go on
Yeah you lose all matters when I go

In a way I could use a
high procentic drink right now
Just go on and you lose it
Doesn't matter anyhow
Track Name: Hasn't Happened Yet
Hasn't Happened Yet

Waiting for the sun to melt the mood of my heart
Thinking of the days
But cannot think my thoughts loud
Waiting for a moment, a move to react
Something that hasn't quite happened yet

Can you tell what I say from what I mean
Can you read my mind and explain it to me
Is there anything I might miss
To pay more attention to?
Is there something wrong
In what I always do?

Waiting for a cloud to lift me up in the sky
I need to look from above why I'm down all the time
Scares me to see you agree to their laws
But the smallest reaction does still need a cause

If you get the chance twice
Are you sure you would try the same way?
Remember all of your tries have brought you here
Is there any question in time?
Any answer to the big mark?
Cos I look and I find any change even from this far

Looking for direction in an everchanging time
Should I turn to the left or turn to the right?
Just a little kick to some of those sides
But I stuck in the middle with a limited sight

And I can't keep from holding on
When I haven't started yet
I can't keep on trying but I still do
And I won't break the circle
Mine is not a straight line
But I'm always trying to continue

Waiting for the sun to melt the mood of my heart
Thinking of the days
But cannot think my thoughts loud
Waiting for a moment, a move to react
Something that hasn't quite happened yet
No something that hasn't quite happened yet
Track Name: Waiting At The Surface
Waiting At The Surface

Waiting at the surface
Waiting for someone
Waiting, I am waiting
waiting all along
Take me to the center
Show me where it starts

Moving, I'm just moving
Moving anywhere
Travelling without direction
A new beginning in the air
Longing for the mountains
Longing for the sea

Take me for a ride now
Right into my heart
Breathing, only breathing
Breath inside my heart
Blow your hair quite curly
Breathing out and in

Moving, I'm just moving
Moving anywhere
Travelling without direction
A new beginning in the air
Longing for the mountains
Longing for the sea
Catch the train and get off
To something new for me
Track Name: Concertina & The White Guitar
Concertina & The White Guitar

Won't you wait for me
Look what they've to spend to
This white guitar has a broken nek
But it's still in tune

Won't you wait for me
Carrying the goods in
The g-string is missing
I best put these strings to keep
Her from flipping over
While you're just moving on

And I shout a goodbye
And you're turning around
And it seems that my eyes lose its light
To see you smiling back at me

Would you lead me now
So I can see if I can trust
And I carry the goods that we found back in

Won't you wait for me
I fear you're leaving me
I fear that you leave and I feel that I'm lost
So please take my hand
So I can see if I can trust
Oh please stay with me

On my bike I ride all over the westwall
From north to south
Thru the woods
Down old highways
High above
Thru the clouds of the skybridge
And back down
And back down

You won't wait for me
You won't wait for me
It's hard to see for me
You won't wait for me

And it seems I am asleep
in some other parallel univers
As I try to wake myself
Someone's tickling me
You won't wait for me
Track Name: Tidal Waves Or War [Part 1] (Rainbow Dress)
Tidal Waves Or War [Part 1] (Rainbow Dress)

She appears with her long black hair
The second time in a row
First as an action-figure
Now as an ethiopian child

In her rainbow dress
In her rainbow dress
In her rainbow dress

And everytime we're torn apart
By tidal waves or war
Cos in this space I'm living in
We couldn't be farther apart

And I swim underwater
Yeah I dive below all visitors
Whose came to see the show

At the themepark
At the themepark
At the themepark

But I was growing appetite
For some candy and some junk
So I left and couldn't get back in

And Joey and someone were driving my car
And did some nice stunts
Yeah we had a lot of fun

And I was just longing to
Get back home to you
Track Name: Sleep Again
Sleep Again

I thought I knew
I been prepared
But finally this state is there
I dare any reaction
Except then lock myself away
I just survive by sleep all day

I'd turn the clock to it will happen
The second month of every year again
Won't pass me and
I go to sleep again

Although I knew it'll come to this
Guess the experience had shown it would
It's kinda like a bad surprise
I still can't handle with that mood

Those easy tricks I know to fix
All of these lunatics inside my brain
An icy rain make the blackbird sing again

I just woke to fall asleep once new
I can't stand to be surrounded by you

Even I warned you I'm not sure
You understand this state I'm in
I just can hope for you still like me
When these phases finally end
I hope we are still friends then

It's something different just to talk of
Then to be right into this again
Be patient then
So I will sing again

I just woke to fall asleep once new
I can't stand to be surrounded by you
Track Name: Long Way To Go
Long Way To Go

It's feeling like a long way to go
Can you get me some
Every bend around another
Isn't it a long way to go
In spiral moves
Say it ain't like it looks like
Maybe I'm afraid to go home

One million circles are spinning in front of my eyes
Is this one of my turns?
If so please dim the lights

Maybe there's no sense in try on
To find the one
I Won't stop but I'm gonna guess so
Maybe it's just time to belong to myself
That might be the trick to start things

Rare light in dark days
I think I'm losing my mind
Just one of my turns
And I just cannot hide
Track Name: Quiet Humming In The Back Of My Head
Quiet Humming In The Back Of My Head

In the dark of my room I melt
Words in my head, they come together
Then they suddendly fade
I'm tired of writing so they slip away
Until everything's gone there is still
A quiet humming in the back of my head

I'm waiting for you now nearly an hour
The second time today
Yeah thanx a lot!
I'm some kind of drowning in thoughts
Hey what am I worth?
I need something to remind me what is good
A quiet humming in the back of my head

Late at night when there's nobody home
I'm looking for the sound to let my heart grow
When I am lonley and there's no aim ahead
I am glad there's still
A quiet humming in the back of my head
Track Name: Dustset
Dustset

Yeah it's healing in a special way
Don't you wake me
I'm far away
Our movement is nearly frozen

I'd loved you really like me to stay
I would be there night and day
Just a slight turn softly into grey

The dustset's rising
And I can't see no way back in
All blurry and I like it here this way

Surrounded by a thousand tears
I'm swimming next to you my dear
I'm drowning
Yet I touched the ground

Today
Today
Today
Today

Yeah it's healing
When I lose my way
It's healing
I go on that way
It's healing
Bang bang bang bang bang!

I'd loved you really like me to stay
I would be there night and day
Just a slight turn
A slight turn
A slight turn
Softly into grey
Track Name: Flourman
Flourman

Sidewalk I never walked
Leads me to a house in the fields
Great hall just miles away
I have to walk when the road's okay

Cos thru the spiral to your room
Across the island
I'm there soon

Flourman
I'm miles away
I hide inside a house today
And next to me the beauty sleeps
We can't wake up
Of this apocalyptic dream

Cos thru the spiral
Like a numb
Where is your face...?
Outside the bloom of spiral stairs
That are in your eyes
No one realises

You got no hands
You got no feet
You got no face
Cos you don't really need

Your room's too small
Don't bother me
No answer still
I won't get free
I'm lost in here and if you can
Leave this place
Flourman

And thru this spiral like a numb
My ears won't hear but I ain't dumb
My hands won't feel but I can tell
No answer still
I leave the cell

Goodbye flourman
Goodbye flourman
Goodbye flourman
Goodbye flourman

Leave this place
Flourman
Leave this place
Flourman
Track Name: Lank
Lank

I take a walk into the dark
To tear black and white apart
Something I don't understand
When there's a start seems there's no end

It's a good time to try some other
Way right out of here
It's a good time
Why do I bother?
Get me out of here
Get me out of here
Get me out of here

It's a decision for deciders
It's something more then just a try
I keep my hand close to my heart
And watch their stars fall from the sky

It's a good time to try another
Way right out of here
It's a good time
Why do I bother?
Get me out of here
Get me out of here
Get me out of here

Get me out of here
Get me out of here
Get me out of here

Get me out of here
Get me out of here
Get me out of here

It's a good time to try some other
Way right out of here
It's a good time
Why do I bother?
Get me out of here
Get me out of here
Get me out of here
Get me out of here
Get me out of here
Track Name: Once In A Lifetime
Once In A Lifetime

I got this pen and this blank page
Cos this window's just flipping off again
And these words run thru my fingers
This ink is like the blood of my pain

Surely unprotected
And I'm scared somebody could turn the joke on me
But I'm looking for some kind to lighten love of my heart
And this moment could set it free

Once in a lifetime
Maybe once in a lifetime
I beg nobody disturb this
So I might get loose

I open up to the unknown
A fragile state that could break any moment you wake
And i hang on as long as this connection is stable
Before I'm passing the next exit-gate

A state of mind I am joining
And I wish I just could stay there eternally
But the trouble with those moments is
They are always rare
So I'm joining while I'm there

Maybe once in a lifetime
Maybe once in a lifetime
I beg nobody disturb this
So I might get loose

Only once in a lifetime
Maybe once in a lifetime
I beg nobody disturb this
So I might get loose

I got the weapon
But I can't use

Only once in a lifetime
Only once in a lifetime
I beg nobody disturb this
So I might get loose

I got the weapon
But I won't use
Track Name: Tidal Waves Or War [Part 2] (Loot)
Tidal Waves Or War [Part 2] (Loot)

How did they get me to the army
How did it get you also there
A five day excercise at the airplane hangar

But every week and every day
We do the jumping-level
All over again
All over again
All over

The old turk at the candystore
Inside a supermarket-store
told me to decide first
But as I choose the choice seemed to diminish
So I checked the electric devices to my left
Extended in a glass cabinet
And I found a loot-machine
And it just cost 9 coins
But the salesclerk told me
This was not for sale
