Track Name: 01_feels like may
Feels like may

feels like May but it's january
goosebumbs in front of coffee bars
it's a T-Shirt day but still we'll catch the flu
the more we freeze the longer we stay in bed

feels like may but it's january

the trees are cold
coffee's been hot
luke warm hearts
trying to speed up
chairs are wet
cooling down your underwear

add your heat to the northern skies
waste your warmth and give your love away
swallowed up by winter's air
january never cares

the sun is up though it's shining weak
goosebumps spread around our neck
ignore the fact that it's not warm
feels like may but it's january

feels like may but it's january

the trees are cold
coffee's been hot
luke warm hearts
trying to speed up
chairs are wet
cooling down your underwear
Track Name: 03_parkinglot
Parkinglot


sweat is running down the steamy glass
leaving kids and dogs in overheated cars
they keep their head near where they can get some air
Watch the mental crowd from my autistic view
rush into the mall that killed our lovely town

the world of parking x 4

I spend my leisure time just parking
I' m looking for the place with the right amount of space
I' m yelling at my dog 'cause it is barking
I' m looking for the place with the right amount of space

I can feel a breeze from the nearby sea
gently moving my girlfriend's skirt

Watch the mental crowd from my autistic view
rush into the mall that killed our lovely town

sweat is running down the steamy glass
leaving kids and dogs in overheated cars

the world of parking x 4

I spend my leisure time just parking
I' m looking for the place with the right amount of space
I' m yelling at my dog 'cause it is barking
I' m looking for the place with the right amount of space
Track Name: 04_bengal sparks
Bengal Sparks


inflaming fireworks in his cold hand
a kid walks down the street
bengal sparks fall on the side walk
and the light won't touch his heart

thank you for the gorgeous moment
thank you for the bengal sparks


witness fireworks in a distance
on another shore
smoke is rising from his small hand
watch the sparks rain on the floor

thank you for the gorgeous moment
thank you for the bengal sparks


caught in an ageless moment
stand with my hands at ease
bengal sparks fall on the side walk
and the light won't touch his heart

Thank you for the gorgeous moment
thank you for the bengal sparks
thank you for the bengal sparks
Track Name: 05_generally speaking
Generally speaking

moving at a speed of nonsense
shitloads of trees wall cars birds clouds and people
engaged in some kind of riot
passing by as I proceed towards an unclear situation

trees walls cars birds and people
engaged in some kind of riot

Generally speaking
Generally speaking

trees walls cars birds clouds and people
engaged in some kind of riot
birds.... cars

Generally speaking

speed will take us to hawaii
while we try to forget
the white slopes of the alps
or the soft tan of a lover
that used to eat up our time

generally speaking
generally speaking

trees walls cars birds
clouds and people
engaged in some kind of riot

generally speaking

Track Name: 06_nicotine princess
nicotine princess

aerosol particels
in the train compartment
nicotine princess
proclaims a perfume department

Keeping noses like mine
away from her private life
sputtering her chest
and her personality
abundant stink
like a lake of rotten tears

When I woke I was under the cloud of bad temper
drizzling rain sneaking in under my umbrella


When I got off the train carrying my daughter in a babywrap
I can still smell perfume particles attached to my baby girl
My umbrella opening in the face a pedestrian
Starts kick spit and shout at the nearby garbage can

When I woke I was under the cloud of bad temper
drizzling rain sneaking in under my umbrella


When I woke I was under the cloud of bad temper
drizzling rain sneaking in under my umbrella
Track Name: 07_low rider
LOW RIDER


All my friends know the Low Rider
The Low Rider is a little higher
The Low Rider drives a little slower
Low Rider, is a real goer, hey


Low Rider knows every street, yeah
Low Rider, is the one to meet, yeah


Low Rider, don't use no gas now
The Low Rider don't drive too fast


Take a little trip, take a little trip
Take a little trip and see
Take a little trip, take a little trip
Take a little trip with me
Track Name: 08_pancake man
Pancake Man


I' m a simple man and I'm not ashamed
Selling pancakes at the beach to the tourist man
I spread chocalate cream and banana
and then serve it too nude Rosanna

I'm a simple man and I like it
talking trash talk cause I like it
Wear a G-String made of zebraskin
Watch the mangoes splash through the Roof into
my livingroom

I make coffee on a little stove and then serve it to the funny crowd
meanwhile people carelessly play in the surf
the atlantic ocean pulls them out
and they scream at the top of their lungs
I throw a lifebelt and pull them back in again
and I keep a pancake warm and handy for them

I'm a simple man and I like it
talking trash talk cause I like it
Wear a G-String made of zebraskin
Watch the mangoes splash through the Roof into
my livingroom

There's no Roof to hold them back yeah
There's no Roof to hold them back

Watch the mangoes splash through the roof into
the livingroom

In the evining when my work is done
I bury all the kitchen things in the sand
Track Name: 09_silly you (feat. mr. vast)
silly you silly me


crack the cups mop it up
the furniture, the the pulovers, spill the pop mop it up

take your time to pull apart the things we stuck together
the pullovers, the photgraphs, the furniture, whatever

you think it's fine to crack the cups, spill the pop, mop it up
feelings pressed to the floor, can't take this anymore

the contract was left unsigned the boundries were undefined

silly me, silly you, silly me
silly you, silly me, silly you


this is no way to be can't work for your industry a factory
producing poisonous toys
you make the omlette from the waste forcefeed me but I don't taste
the hands don't grip knives don't cut
I'd like to change things but


silly me, silly you, silly me
silly you, silly me, silly you


looks like we fucked it up again
we hired parasites and they became friends

take your time to pull apart the things we stuck together
the pullovers, the photgraphs, the furniture, whatever

you think it's fine to crack the cups, spill the pop, mop it up
feelings pressed to the floor, can't take this anymore

the contract was left unsigned the boundries were undefined

silly me, silly you, silly me
silly you, silly me, silly you

Track Name: 11_neon fog
Neon Fog



Wet leaves reflecting back lights
the fear to crash in traffic dense and fast
the call of work makes me cycle fast

early morning dawn
the lights of the truck like lines drawn
with a neon pen

the fear to crash in traffic dense and fast
the call of work
makes me cycle fast

the trucks the cars
the motor cycle shoot on by
in the dark


early morning fog
early morning dawn
early morning fog
early morning dawn

early morning dawn
the lights of the truck like lines drawn
with a neon pen

early morning fog
early morning dawn
early morning fog
early morning dawn

early morning dawn
the lights of the truck like lines drawn
with a neon pen
Track Name: 12_cages
Cages


Hi there Mr.Copper how you doing
It has been a while
that we met at parties
dancing fortunate and wild

you lost all your teeth
you lost all your hair
and your juvenile smile
made way for despair

you lost all your teeth
you lost all your tan
and your juvenile smile
made way for despair


Hey there Mrs.Wilson how you doing
heard you life on social welfare
I'm shure you had a wicked life so far
saw you hanging everywhere


Who will take your dept and your worries 
the radio it won't listen
and the Tv never cared
your last birdy passed away last year 
leaving nothing but a cage
Track Name: 13_canyoning
Canyoning

the journey begins in a canyon
and it takes you to an alpine plateau
where the view is bright
and the shoe feels light
where the heart grows softer
and the sight seems wider
What I thought was Incapability
turned out to be love
what you thought was the point of no return was gently transformed
like first flowers in spring

Everyday i'm on my way
breaking free
I'm facing it all
even the things that are awkward and lean
The feeling I've lost
the hatred I've raised
enslaved by impatience
these are the things
that are keeping me busy
as I am on my way
canyoning

where the view is bright
and the shoe feels light
where the heart grows softer
and the sight seems wider
what I thought was incapability
turned out to be love
things got wider and even vast
what you thought was the point of no return was gently transformed

and became beauty within without concern
what you cherish most is blossoming
like first flowers in spring
Everyday i'm on my way
breaking free
I'm facing it all
even the things that are awkward and lean
The feeling I've lost
the hatred I've raised
enslaved by impatience
these are the things
that are keeping me busy
as I am on my way
canyoning
