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

 

Cut The Dust

 

I walked in the door

I got nothing to know

I started to laugh

We both laughed

Rolling wheels

We´re running on

Should I hide my story

That I´m not alone

 

Will we grow with the story

Or are we falling apart

Will trees be my shelter

When bees are falling like rain

 

Can you still trust

Should I cut the dust

For you

 

I woke up this morning

With a cruel sound

My feet started to walk

My head was down

 

A man played his harp

Full of sounds of sunshine and love
 

I walked out the door

I still got nothing to know

Worn out shoes 

And I´m walking slow

 

Are we able to return

Where we have been before

 

Can you still trust

Should I cut the dust

For you

Can you still trust

Should I cut the dust

For you

 

Street Lights

 

I had a bad dream

So the sky sang a song

Just for me

Just for me

I pulled my back

Out of the window to climb

Down the wall 

Trying to find a place where

Glass is breaking stone

And trees grow down the sky 

 

Street lights had been

Turned on but you

You haven´t been there

Street light´s had been

Turned on but you

You haven´t been there

 

I couldn´t find myself

On the peace train

Like Steven used to sing

I pulled my hand 

To the coffee machine 

To keep my heart beatin’

My pillow screamed

A bar fight in his dram

Then I got back to sleep

 

Street lights had been

Turned on but you

You haven´t been there

Street light´s had been

Turned on but you

You haven´t been there

 

I broke my strings

So the sky played a song

Just for me, just for me

I got drums in my head

I started to dance

Out of my mind

I got in the bus

To buy me book

But the bus the bus

Never arrived

 

Street lights had been

Turned on but you

You haven´t been there

Street light´s had been 

Turned on but you

You haven´t been there

 

Quicksand


I don´t feel broken

Rather sad and confused

Hurting my darling

Should I be amused

 

I can´t get out of here

Walls are staring at me

Smiles and laughs 

Meet danger and doubts

 

I´m tired of wasting

Wasting my nights

I´m tired of thinking

Thoughtful and bright

 

Talking trough nights

Missing my point

Using torches

I´m out of joint

 

But I love you

Please don´t go away

Stuck in quicksand

Hiding my way

 

Please don´t go away

One day I will grow up

Listen my baby

You´re a gift I´m a buck

 

I can get lonely

Rather happy and glad

Things got out of hand

And I forgot what you said

 

Quicksand is coming

I can´t just walk through

Crushing my chest

I´m bothering you 

 

How Could I Know

 

I Never went to ground

Except when you’re around

He tried to strangle me down

Cause he´s in love with her

How could I know that her smile

Wasn´t real

 

I tried to stay cool

I got punched by a fool

I tried to catch some air

Cause he´s in love with her

How could I know it´s a crime

Talking to her

 

Again he´s raising his fist

Another guy got pissed

Both are raising their arms

Cause I was looking at her

How could I know that he´s crazy

In love with her

 

The whole crowed stayed calm

A great movie was on

Except of caring is love

Another girl kissed her

How could he know that she is gone

So fast

 

The Truth Has Never Been Told 

 

I´m standing around

I´m wasting my time

In this same room where I´ve been

Hanging out now for a while

Same old story

Or rhythm of life

I don´t wanna be bored

Inspiration´s a crime

 

A dream 

Is built on dreaming

So dreams

Never come true

And the truth 

Has never been told before

Is it the same truth

Hanging around

 

Strangers hanging around

Wasting their time

I got some issues here

I´m spending my money the whole night

Don´t lie to me baby

Don´t cry for me too

It´s just a dream that makes me cry

When I´m without you

Don´t lie to me baby

Don´t cry for me too

It´s the truth that makes me cry

When I´m without you

 

A dream 

Is built on dreaming

So dreams

Never come true

And the truth 

Has never been told before

Is it the same truth

Hanging around

 

Fall From Trees

 

When home is not home 

And life is not real

When it´s raining women

Crashing onto the street

 

I tried to help 

I went insane

Nobody was there 

to help me

I got up on my feet

I started to run

To a place where women

Don´t fall from trees

 

I wasn´t sure to believe

Smuggled into my dream

I could hear the thumb

When she crashed on the street

 

I forgot what to do

I went insane

I tried to look away 

the image gripped my brain

I got up on my feet

I started to run

To a place where women

Don´t fall from trees

 

The murky sun went down

I saw her lie on the ground

She opened her eyes 

I thought she was not alive

 

I started back 

I went insane

I made a call 

Nobody picked up the phone

I got up on my feet

I started to run

To a place where women

Don´t fall from trees

 

Let me wake from this dream

 

Mules Are Dancing Tango

 

Mules are dancing tango

And pigs act like bees

Clocks are running faster

One second´s like a day

Eyes look like ashtrays

Straight people are gay

Faces crash on the street

The elephant´s like a tree

 

I fall down

I fall so deep

The parachute´s with me

The parachute´s with me

I fall down

I fall so deep

It´s just a bottle of wine

Who´s catching me

In case who´s catching me

Who turns the other cheek

 

Books need passports

Prisoners are free

Bags are driving caps and

Candles smell like tea

A whore is no whore

If fucking is for free

Riding mobile phones

What horses intent to be

 

I fall down

I fall so deep

The parachute´s with me

The parachute´s with me

I fall down

I fall so deep

It´s just a bottle of wine

Who´s catching me

In case who´s catching me

Who turns the other cheek

 

Pants need a haircut

Chairs are taking a seat

The laundry´s never dry

And monkeys swim in the sea

White is the rainbow

Christmas eve´s in July

We hide behind windows

And clouds can´t fly

 

I fall down

I fall so deep

The parachute´s with me

The parachute´s with me

I fall down

I fall so deep

It´s just an insurance contract

Who´s catching me

In case who´s catching me

Who turns the other cheek

 

The Thunderstorm Comes Again

 

When she left my dream

I started to scream

And I woke up

Soaked in sweat

I began to look around

Nobody’s there

Where is she

 

I found myself

Upset in the rain

But I kept movin´

To feel the pain

Pain or love are the only things

That make me feel alive

 

She was here tonight

Wasn´t she here tonight

I can´t see that bright

Sure she was here tonight

My heart beats again

But the thunderstorm comes again

 

I was dreaming

Of a better world

Without me

I began to fly

No barriers left

I ended somewhere

I couldn’t define

I don´t mind

 

Somewhere

In the nowhere

I woke up again

Was it a proof or another 

Chance I became

I burn the things

To make them grow

To make them grow

 

She was here tonight

Wasn´t she here tonight

I can´t see that bright

Sure she was here tonight

My heart beats again

But the thunderstorm comes again

 

No more liquor no more sweat

Won´t bother me

For now it´s a moment

Of reality

I can feel myself

My heart beats again

But the thunderstorm comes again

 

Your Seat Has Turned Cold

 

I turned around the corner

Shaking hands with gloom

Spending some more money 

On wine and cheap rooms

Not talking to cashiers

Fleeing from streets

Even dogs hang themselves 

No election to win

If pain is on fire

And lakes start to freeze

Sweet chestnuts fall down

And people can´t breathe

Red wine gets swirled 

The liver is shining bright

Sue´s wearing her dress

When the night starts to fall

 

I miss you at my table

Your seat has turned cold

I never tried to imagine

What I´ve been told 

 

Lipstick on her shoulder

Some lipstick on her dress

On the road to nowhere

Stop to make a mess

I tell you baby

I have to go back down

Rebound like a windshield

Don´t to push you around

I turned around the corner

Shaking hands with gloom

Spending some more money

On wine and cheap rooms

Not talking to cashiers

Fleeing from streets

Even dogs hang themselves

No election to win 

 

I miss you at my table

Your seat has turned cold

I never tried to imagine

What I´ve been told
