Track Name: Faithful Patrones
From the bronze tinted glass the doors that separate us - the patio. The view has an antique quality. The picture that`s displayed through the doors - a memory. Has the quality of an old wrinkled photograph. Still reflective but depressed while the blurred imagine is turned counter-clockwise. A slight click and the sound of wheels gliding across well-greased tracks. Traveler take a rest not like thunder more like storm liquid steal on your tongue. When you caught fire that night different dreams and different types clean your thoughts for the first time. Still reflective but depressed while the burled imagine is turned counter-clockwise. A slight click and the sound of wheels gliding across well-greased tracks. Across the landscapes of memories and the fingerprints of a young hand now visible in warm light. I breath in and I breath out the first time for - no second found. It feels so cold to be that way. We just exist. Stepping back and allow to resemble the inner conflict. It looks like that you would find a resting at the base of this cold ground. Left there dirty, left there by faithful patrones the images are slightly visible. I breath in and I breath out the first time for no second found. It feels so cold to be that way. We just exist. Possession becomes passion and we just fall apart. Passion becomes obsession and we go back to the start.
Track Name: Pelican
Pelican
Colored guidelines on your road and in your head that lead you to the secret. Repeat your words just one more time I will listen - just one more time. An old man on a swing the world in between a dead end road the major theme of your life is just a portrait of the past. Oh strange lights that shine from out the barn. Where and when have we found the consistence? Hits and hearts were broken and fixed by songs and the hymns of our times. Attempt attempt small example and prettiness oh my - prettiness passed by. Promises are even though just words at all we heard plenty of. We`ll see where it will end get shipwrecked Odyssey a tangle of a hundred rumors of once was. Oh strange lights that shine from out the barn where and when have we found the consistence? Hits and hearts were broken and fixed by songs and the hymns of our times. Rather life or rather die? The concerns lived while the consciousness died
Track Name: Noise
He reached no arm no rope to hold a deep breath it sounds so cold the water crystal so crystal clear the boat on surface stood quiet and still there was no breeze no waste of time a few seconds and gone his life no mercy ode to the beauteousness of the sea the billow and softness your sweat kisses that leave a salty taste have a heart! Have a heart! He reached the rope no use to hold a strong hitch and flesh did rip the water crystal so crystal clear And dark it turned the depth came cold a flickering like lightning bolt And all that filled and filled his lungs and strings that pulled him down the black cold ground a ceiling dead and faint and faint the eye turned red creatures of the deep sea ground his body was a feast to them his body lost in deep black holes ode to the beauteousness of the sea the billow and softness your sweat kisses that leave a salty taste ode to the relentlessness of the sea the rogue wave and the energy your unsustainable hunger your maw that swallows everyone and everything anyone and everything
Track Name: Golden Puma
Hold your hands on the cart pick up pick up and hide your muscles start to strain no rest no rest broken glass straying cats the radio radio transistor box on and off your fashion shoes the latest hits let`s dance eyes of the hawk ears of the wolf strength of the bear he will come to get you time is running got new trainers running running fast tight on heels fit so good start duration run forever needs no silver want`s some gold hunts for it kills for it the golden puma follows the trail eyes of the hawk ears of the wolf strength of the bear he will come to get you watch out watch out too fast too fast the friction of the strangers in your eyes electricity in the air it`s the blasting blocks the freckles and spots across your field of view eyes of the hawk ears of the wolf strength of the bear he will come to get you
Track Name: Paper cuts skin
paper cuts skin

I killed my time with you
just no need to feel real
we`re moving quickly to the rim
falling deep and deep we`d fallen
the first time the first love

oh kissing loving shaking kissing
oh kissing loving shaking kissing

you sang the body electric
brought the pulse that was not found
lost within the needles beats of engine pumps

I keep turning you keep turning but each within different ways
no longer we can kill the time with needles chasing, charmed and smile
this time I may nor miss neither deny
but routine is a steady thing that keeps crawl and crawling in

no fast beats
no bliss
no fever to break out
your love is running out
it’s running out of sound
and I´m looking for a flight to a land so deep inside
where the mountains and the sea built a fortress where to hide


We cannot proceed when we always live in the past
your mother told you so and you did listen
living in a hurry is not first class when all you know sounds like a cracking crystal bowl

oh kissing loving shaking kissing
oh kissing loving shaking kissing

you sang the body electric
brought the pulse that was not found
lost within the needles beats of engine pumps

it’s becoming daily business
no harm no stress
just like friends sleeping side by side
no big struggle no big fight
we’re breaking up just like childhood friends next door

when I look at you it’s like a drawing sketch of a ghost
you turned to be a ghost

no fast beats
no bliss
no fever to break out
your love is running out
it is running out of sound
and I´m looking for a flight to a land so deep inside
where the mountain and the sea built a fortress where to hide

where is you teenage love?
The feeling so warm in your chest
when touching her the first time

all became so common and you became a ghost
desperate me – desperate you

so find this tags of memories and keep them deep inside
so deep no one will find
search the rapids and decline
keep them deep inside
for the good times
so deep no one will find
Track Name: Poe
We started and we remained steady hours in your flat that saved our souls from being mute dimmed bulb at long nights to catch the atmosphere sounds and disappear but lasting friendship will remain all the stories told and all the trouble solved but there had to come one day a starry hope that did arise but to be overcast a voice from out the future cries too bright to last we just lived our life’s different places different times brothers at the heart from the start time is cracking pretty frames visions and it fades to remain like shadows a short time a starry hope that did arise but to be overcast my spirit hovering lies motionless aghast such language holds the solemn sea to the sands upon the shore shall bloom the thunder blasted tree or the stricken eagle soar? And all my days are trances and all my nightly dreams are where the gray eyed glances and where the footstep gleams (inspired by Edgar Alan Poe, To one in Paradise)
Track Name: Plastic Diamond
plastic diamond
It`s a pigeon quest to search the plastic ring while traffic lights they turn red and everything that`s around goes slow goes slow. city structures paper maps pay attention where`s no need to! Cool soft drinks and candy pops - wending machines and children dreams - a blooming haze a crystal sting so sweat so sweat. Destination is no longer worth a question destination. Oh lines and chords and strings in choirs they together sing. Plastic diamonds they don`t shine forever. Wooden ships they won`t swim forever. There`s only few that lasts - that lasts a lifetime. Plastic diamonds they don`t shine forever.
Track Name: Waves inside
Oh it`s when we dive into the ocean with the waves inside our hearts to shake and the slight rain with the films and the sounds in the pillow filled rooms rhythm and control deep and full of joy nevertheless there is a fraud that caught appeared from now and then How far? An end? Dare a leap of faith never easy never good pessimistic I I dare and you obey a magician in your eye Often caught within a thought and a steady weakness calls yourself to overdo it on and on a meaning is a sense for some but reasons can be hard to find If necessary? Oh for sure to life within the patterns How far? An end? Dare a leap of faith have faith! never easy never good pessimistic I I dare and you obey a magician in your eye never easy never good pessimistic I I become a retrospective looking glass of time
Track Name: Dagger
They send their ships from far away sails strongly blown by future storms started with the tempest feelings woken from the sirens dreams a draft mature coast versus coast the emperor seeks for revenge struck by a silver string the wave culture emerged I serve you dear oh emperor desire you my dear your like a dagger in my chest temper temper I`m like a dagger in your chest oh my dearest enemy fair enough you played your game each time we met on battlefields both grown old and full of greed the numbness bred by both of us and wasteland grew upon our leadership and all the sins that we caused, while hunting for more did not come to an end we once were friends of a noble mind but the world forced us not to grin to grin and not to smile how can you even it out with the dead eyes in mind while you are drinking to the glory of the good old times when you think about the people while you cry for more you cry for more how can you even it out with the dead eyes in mind while you are drinking to the glory of the good old times when you think about the people will you cry for more you cry for more how can you even it out how can you even it out struck by a silver string the wave culture emerged I serve you dear oh emperor desire you my dear your like a dagger in my chest temper temper I`m like a dagger in your chest
Track Name: Life and Function
Lost in thoughts lost in time with no outcome waste away just to exist build up homes for someone’s dreams life and function waste away the beat of life just an event terrace houses construction sides social structures social state expectations tight defeat life and function built up an tear down assimilation waste away waste away what`s zeitgeist anyway? All those paper books and pages torn we`re overwhelmed landscapes may illuminate like fields of gold motion captured in between random action random noise the lake, the sea, a field of ice the nature sounds that nice motion captured in between random action random noise the lake the sea a field of ice mountain goats on Zion`s top
