Let It Flow 04:02
I‘m a shark in an ocean of perfume a pearl in a pig with gastritis – call me King Midas if no one employs me no one annoys me if I don‘t fight myself, nothing and no one destroys me I‘m a gangster, a spirit, a tank I‘m a virgin things are never complete before they start merging I‘m confused coz I miss you – It‘s good to know no draggin‘, no pushin‘ – let it flow Is it time to get lazy or time to go crazy to stop these develoments that make things too mazy face in the mirror, all your values, decisions did somehow slide to the bizarrest position take off your rollneck, your basecap If you‘re naked do the face check watch your headroom, your bedroom, your eyes in a pale head hero‘s back to zero, you smile coz you know no draggin‘, no pushin‘ – let it flow Oh it‘s good to see you – real good to see you I wanted too much now do agree with you who needs a grey sky, a petrified pizza pie a shark in an ocean of perfume, a mad guy where‘s the gangster, the spirit, the pale days now some headroom, a bedroom, you got me out of that maze now I‘m still confused coz I missed you – it‘s good to know no draggin‘, no pushin‘ – let it flow

If all the walls get ears and every noise annoys means where you‘re at is not the spot of choice We gotta make a move, we gotta get out of there we gotta make a move, we gotta go gotta make a move, we gotta get out of there another try to high from low If your neighbour‘s name is still unpronounceable and nothing unpredictible is on the bill we gotta make a move … If every move disturbs and every noise annoys means where you’re at is not the spot of choice we gotta make a move …

Think Tank 03:55
I smell your perfume but you don’t reply to my calling u might wear headphones coz you‘ve never been out when rain was falling you seem to be out of sight feels like there’s no more burden you‘ll be surely back soon and ring to ring up another curtain We gotta go – to open up our think tank‘s door we gotta go – another start to hi from lo I wrote this letter but the reader was just the fire no explanations coz you wouldn‘t understand my strange desire power and poetry and rhythms of ancient times keep on pulsin‘ through my veins – this ain‘t theory of science We gotta go – to open up our think tank‘s door we gotta go – another start to hi from lo we gotta go – the arrow‘s got a brandnew bow Spreadin‘ out the red rags or rolling out the red carpet when things are ending we try hard to realize how they have started what are we fighting for when we only fight ourselves there‘s no reason to fight at all if it was love we always felt We gotta go – to open up our think tank‘s door we gotta go – another start to hi from lo

Sad News 06:33
I‘m not the one, not the one you‘ve been looking for you didn‘t wait for the face o‘mine but you expect a sign so you open your home though I didn‘t even touch your door and I never did before Just standing there no fear but if you wish I take shape out of a shapeless atmosphere and I start to exist as a substitute of truth don‘t let me in coz I‘m bringing sad news It‘s not the others, it‘s you or not just the others but you and the others – it‘s us too If we isolate it‘s too late coz we wait for things to come but we are the ones to do the first steps to be ahead of the ones who still wanna wait until it might be too late – to face the truth It could even be a start if I‘m bringing sad news You‘re not the one who‘s been born without expectations you‘re longing for love and wisdom, an uncomplete system violent but taught to fight temptations aggressive, obedient, obsessed like nations but we are the ones to do the first step to be ahead of the ones who still wanna wait but it‘s never too late to face the truth it could even be a start if I‘m bringing sad news

Down down the alley you headful of jelly yes I know I was told this was jealousy it‘s fear and anger coz everyone knows we shouldn’t go to where the whole thing goes It‘s not a girl, it‘s about the whole world and about words that give belief to the poor which send‘em to war It‘s the next generations who‘ll be forced to taste the 20th century party waste Taste, taste the 20th party waste Down down the alley you headful of jelly yes I know I was told this was jealousy there‘s a queen on the roof of her drowning castle there‘s a king on the head of his drowning puddle and an old tycoon on a jungle jet crash scene it‘s the next generations who‘ll be forced to taste the 20th century party waste

True View 04:20
One day – every day – we‘re longing for some recognition no chance – trends and brands – poetry lays way below why love is part of tears and competition cool down – cool right down and take a true view Take a true view – on everything we planned to do take a true view – to see what we‘ve been passing thru No way – not one day – without love and understanding new questions – new directions – lead to what I wanna know good love I had no doubt was never ending cool down – cool right down and take true view Take a true view – on everything we planned to do take a true view – to see what we‘ve been passing thru Today– everyday – little things that don‘t keep distance steel time – make me blind – eat my soul before I know cool down – cool right down and take a true view Take a true view – on everything we planned to do take a true view – to see what we‘ve been passing thru

Gonna escape from the desert as I‘m going to swelter I quit hiding myself gonna leave my shelter no way to stay solid and cool if love‘s the melter

Cure O'Soul 03:50
I gotta row row though you never let me know where we gotta go go that‘s probably why I often feel a little low But nevertheless and way below nevertheless I know you know where to go go miles away from feeling low low You‘re the cure of my soul – my cure o‘soul … Rowing to Como – everything I do for you I do in slow mo coz I never know how long I gotta row But nevertheless and way below nevertheless I know you know where to go miles away from feeling low low You‘re the cure of my soul - my cure o‘soul …
