LYRICS

Album "Lying To Myself"

 

I Am Afraid Of You

I am afraid of you

afraid of you

I´m not afraid of you

Not afraid of you

I´m not afraid of you

Worried ´bout you

 

I am afraid of you

 

I turned you somewhere

Dispelled doubts

Broken glasses

It ain´t my fault

 

Street lights are

Telling stories to me

Lost direction

Pure pure greed

 

I am afraid of you

afraid of you

I´m not afraid of you

Not afraid of you

I´m not afraid of you

Worried ´bout you

 

I am afraid of you

 

Petrol pump

Fresh cut grass

I´m on the road

I won´t take a rest

 

Things are changing

Egoism’s left

Do I stop burning

With a shot through my chest

 

I am afraid of you

afraid of you

I´m not afraid of you

Not afraid of you

I´m not afraid of you

Worried ´bout you

 

I am afraid of you

I am afraid of you

I am afraid of you

I am afraid of you

 

I Don't Know Where

I don´t know where

I can go to sleep

I don´t know where

The knife is not waiting for me

I don´t know where

To feel like a creep

I don´t know where

My hands never start to bleed

 

I don´t know where

Love is not waiting to starve

I don´t know where

I can rest without sleep

I don´t know where

To get the proof

I don´t know where

The blanked feels like my roof

 

I don´t know where

To trust the sky

I don´t know where

To hit the roof

I don´t know where

I can be proud

But I know where

It´s raining without clouds

 

Railroad Rat

Whether falling on my knees

Or playing on the ground

Whether hiding myself

Or leaving this town

Children just cry

If there´s something strange around

Loving themselves

Being happy and proud

 

I´m the railroad rat locked inside

Locked in freedom I´ll never put aside

 

If everything is said

And everything is done

The waitress is coming

Another round

The bed just can´t be

My only friend

Telling me what to do

With myself

 

I´m the railroad rat locked inside

Locked in freedom I´ll never put aside

 

Does the labyrinth really

Show just one way out

You have to be somebody

Stumbling thoughts

Studying, teaching

Or crying to myself

Waltzing with my soul

Just to make them proud

 

I´m the railroad rat locked inside

Locked in freedom I´ll never put aside

 

Lying To Myself

I read the truth in my palm

So crystal clear

I followed its way

Behaving myself

But the truth remained

It wasn´t my taste

I cut of my hand

And sent it away

 

I have a special gift

For solving problems

Solving problems is what I like

I led them to believe

My great adventure

Lying even to myself

 

I saw the truth in my eyes

So crystal clear

I tried my best

Without any fear

But the truth remained

It wasn´t my taste

So I cut my eyes

I´m left without hate

 

I have a special gift

For solving problems

Solving problems is what I like

I led them to believe 

My great adventure

Lying even to myself 

 

I heard the truth in my ears

So crystal clear

Standing aside

I´m fighting my tears

But the truth remained

It wasn´t my taste

So I cut off my ears

No more tears

 

I have a special gift

For solving problems

Solving problems is what I like

I led them to believe 

My great adventure

Lying even to myself 

I kept

Lying even to myself

I kept

Lying even to myself

 

The Innocence Is Calling Me Free

I´m sitting by myself

Not any longer

My voice is broken

I´ll take a rest

I prefer railroad tracks

Suppressing time

Steam strokes my skin

And tired folks

 

I´m coming down from hell but the innocence is calling me free

I´m burning like hell but the innocence is calling me free

 

Giving up is weak

Pushing to the front

My whisper´s coming close

I may lose my words

You had been so brave

Not any longer

I had to take a lot

Since you´ve passed away

 

I´m coming down from hell but the innocence is calling me free

I´m burning like hell but the innocence is calling me free

 

Sunlight reveals cobweb

Hanging from my bed

The spider´s not at home

I need to talk to you

The floor is flat and cold

My lips are turning blue

Stand up to move your blood

He´s never coming back

I´m coming down from hell but the innocence is calling me free

I´m burning like hell but the innocence is calling me free

 

Have you been tasting mud

Are you struggling hard

You´re hanging by a thread

My voice is coming back

 

I´m coming down from hell but the innocence is calling me free

I´m burning like hell but the innocence is calling me free

I´m coming down from hell but the innocence is calling me free

I´m burning like hell but the innocence is calling me free

 

Rooms Are Getting Tight

I was searching for something

In this pretty, well-known town

everything had a routine

And nothing could go wrong

But less sleep and angriness

My exploited fridge

I tried to heat some water

My attempt was fragile

My intent to repair the flat

Went badly wrong

I wanted to leave

Nothing else seemed to belong

But the door was closed

and I couldn´t get out

I had to open a window

Not to get drowned

 

Rooms were getting tight

The floor kissed the roof

The air went out

my attention got loose

 

I wanted to shout

I needed some help

But my voice broke down

The walls started to melt

The waking of the sun

Came too late for me

An angel whispered

Get up a tree 

 

 

Rooms were getting tight

The floor kissed the roof

The air went out

my attention got loose

 

Melting Rose

Where are the times

Of gold and steel

Where are the times

My feet wore wheels

My heart keeps barking

Smells like lead

Breaking pens

I start to bleed

Losing my fingers

Losing my cries

Where´s my best friend

No more lies

 

Melting rose

Left alone

Burning water

Sinking stone

Gave you a rose

I Don´t want it back

Cold hugs

To fill the gap

 

Where are the times

Of walking straight

Where are the times

We had no breaks

Our heart keeps barking

Smells like lead

Dying hugs

We start to bleed

Missing our rain coat

Missing our roads

Greeting strangers

heavy load

 

Melting rose

Left alone

Burning water

Sinking stone

Gave you a rose

I Don´t want it back

Cold hugs

To fill the gap

 

Toscana Outdoor

Things seem pretty lazy

The moon is shining bright

I think I have nothing left to lose

But the times are getting stranger

And I don´t get much clearer

I just go outside to think when I´m low

Loneliness just makes me cry

Loneliness makes me survive

So that I won´t beat my head against this broken wall

Birds are surrounding me

They start to sing a song

I just go outside to think when I´m low

I got myself a beer

Because I couldn´t understand

There was a gap in the ladder

And I couldn´t follow them

I tried so hard

And I couldn´t resist

I just go outside to think when I´m low

What is going on with me

When I´m alone but so strong

Have I ever fooled myself to act stronger than I am

Sometimes people are trapped by their insecurities          

I just go outside to think when I´m low
