Reconcile 05:26
We wanna mess around - that's all we wanna do Doin' the T.A.B. - don't take more than two We kinda move - oh - oh no - we're pushing you … You to surrender - give it up - we want you to. Let's call it sympathy - would you call it attitude lf’s jazz and danceable - you don't have to stay for good Cause if you wanna win - you'd better lose control Doin' the T.A.B. to reconcile mind and soul - Mind and soul lt's a kinda strange stew and a kinda magic glue Mixing up styles and rhymes the way we want it to 'Cause if you wanna win - you'd better lose control Doin' the T.A.B. to reconcile mind and soul - Mind and soul We call it sympathy - you call it attitude lt's jazz and danceable - we don't wanna stay for good 'Cause if you wanna win - you'd better lose control Doin' the T.A.B. to reconcile mind and soul - Mind and soul Music & Words by Hellmut Hattler and Joo Kraus, Published by Wintrup Musik

No matter what's goin' on - I’ll survive Though I haven't been your only one In the rhythm of a broken heart Life goes on with a cunning smile - for another while No matter if the flame ever dies down We broke the ice by crushing it - now we drown Another day - another life - no other night - No wrong or right Stop it now - wait and see Don't spoil that last trace of sympathy Just don't talk - just don't continue Why do you think I have always been with you Stop it now - wait and see Love's no matter of necessity Unchained but tear stained - no way no war I refuse to light now that future's at the door No matter what's comin' down - I’ll survive Im not givin' you the runaround In the rhythm of a broken heart - life goes on With a cunning smile - for another while Stop it now … No matter what's goin on - I’ll survive Though I haven't been your only one Another day - another life - no other night - No other fight Stop it now … Music & Words by Hellmut Hattler and Joo Kraus, Published by Wintrup Musik

Now this is what we've got - what we were fighting for • Dur visions disappeared - what are we hiding for • There's no one left to read so what am I writing for • What's goin' on now is nothing I was lookin' for · Someone's ahead and someone's above • There's someone around and another one's in love • Heaven in mind is what the hell I was waiting for • But all I really wanna know is how I ever • Get There • Come on, come on, you better tell me how to • Get There · You better tell me how I • Get there • Now this is what I find - what I was goin' for • Who led me all the way - I was never askin' for • lt needs to end up sick to go back to your door · Recall my future dreams down on the kitchen floor • Someone's ahead … • Now this is what we've got …

Tidy Up 04:00
Damn smoke is getting stronger - Mom can't linger any longer • Wrapped on he floor she tries to creep towards the door • Blocked by the postman, get your pants, save my kitchen, save your toast, man ! • No time to linger any longer - Dad's knocking is getting stronger • His life’s the environment that's why he's a fireman • ls there enough time for Mom to avoid a real ruff time • Now it’s tidy tidy up time • Tidy Up - Tidy Up Time ... • Your anger is getting stronger you shouldn’t linger any longer. Dad's a dirty old man with a dirty old mind • Didn't you spend a ruff time in your roles an an everlasting goldmine • As I said, Mom, don't you linger any longer - 'coz you can't go any wronger • You definitely gotta blast him into your past • You deserve a good time let him walk onto this devastating land mine • Now it’s tidy tidy up time · Tidy Up - Tidy Up Time · Hear that noise getting - we shouldn’t linger any longer - Mom’s steps are getting louder, all that Jazz’n all that power • She’s too early – though it’s dawning • She arrives without a word, without a warning • As I said guys, don’t we linger any longer – things can’t go wronger • No time to escape – change the story like a tape • Let’s stop the party as a cleanin‘ team • The only way to impress her as a team is getting on the tidy up scene • Tidy Up – Tidy Up Time …

Crazy Day 04:02
After a crazy day and pale as a daisy • I’m going the lazy way and even you won’t amaze me • Going the whole thing through • All about me and you • Just turn down my gain ant the output too • Close my eyes for a montain view • Too cool down like a stone after a desert sunset • To be true I don’t wanna know where the whole story runs at … • Without you – no mountain – no view • Without you – my planet ain’t blue • We are acting like spies without being spicy • The day I promised no lies has been the longest now I see • Adapting your attitude – I disguised for your neighbourhood • I hoped that things can’t get lost at the lost & found • No one around … since I ran aground • Time to cool down like the sand after a desert sunset • Hard to predict where the whole story runs at … • Without you – no mountain – no view • Without you – my planet ain’t blue

Columbus 05:00
I’m like a buggin’ system – a battle in a bottle • A loamy loaf – buyin’ bananas like a model • I’m white and black, blow horn and play the rattle • Here I come – I’m the Columbus of an unknown world • In the limbus of another world • Columbus of an unknown world • I’m kinda Jumpin Jack, a tool and a puppet • Fragile like an air mail if you drop • Sending burritos and I’ll never stop it • This is me – I’m the Columbus of an unknown world • In the limbus of another world • Columbus of an unknown world • I wanna navigate you riding on a ladder • A golden cross on a Havana does it better • I’m green and blue and madder as a hatter • Good to know – I’m the Columbus of an unknown world • In the limbus of another world • Columbus of an unknown world

Hours 'n' hours I could walk next to you • Submerge in my thoughts when I follow your moves • The blink of your eyes when you smile your style • And you see that I see things no-one else can see • You're the one I missed but it’s o.k. as it is - life is in flux • The world is like a gleaming stream just like you, our days, our dream • Gleaming stream, gleaming stream • You make my day, color my dream Hours 'n' hours I could lie by your side • ’Till we fly in our visions and hide in a flame • So we gain the power to stand the ice-cold rain • This is hard to do without you • You're the one I missed but it's o.k. as it is - life is in flux • The world is like a gleaming stream • Just like you, our days, our dream • Gleaming stream, gleaming stream • You make my day, color my dream • Years 'n' years you’ll appear in my dreams • lt felt good to see your moves on my screen • The blink of your eyes when you smile your style • And you see that I see things he can never see • Are you the one he missed? lt's o.k. as it is - life is in flux • The world is like a gleaming stream • Just like you, our days, our dream · Gleaming stream, gleaming stream • You make my day, color my dream

Get There I 03:35
Now this is what we've got - what we were fighting for • Dur visions disappeared - what are we hiding for • There's no one left to read so what am I writing for • What's goin' on now is nothing I was lookin' for · Someone's ahead and someone's above • There's someone around and another one's in love • Heaven in mind is what the hell I was waiting for • But all I really wanna know is how I ever • Get There • Come on, come on, you better tell me how to • Get There · You better tell me how I • Get there • Now this is what I find - what I was goin' for • Who led me all the way - I was never askin' for • lt needs to end up sick to go back to your door · Recall my future dreams down on the kitchen floor • Someone's ahead ... • Now this is what we've got Music & Words by Heilmut Hattler and Joo Kraus Published by Wintrup Musik

Mind & Soul 05:20
11.
Heaven's too high and the ground too low • There's a time when only cold winds blow • The X-rays of our yesterdays • Leaving no stone unturned • Kept us trapped inside a maze • Nothing much we've learned • Heaven's too high and the ground too low • There's a time when only cold winds blow • Since we set fire to our goal • And sealed our dreams away • You hear Jazz and I hear Soul • No matter what I play · Heaven's too high and the ground too low • There's a time when only cold winds blow • Like ancient books unread for ages • Being unprepared is no excuse • Not even wind to turn the pages • No gain - no use • Heaven's too high and the ground too low • There's a time when only cold winds blow

Between Us 03:47
We were covered with dirt Hungry and hurt when we met Both on the run sandblasted from the big fun Fed up with paying attention and otherone's bills Or the pills for their ills But loneliness kills Now this is me and this is you - what are we gonna do To be true - there's still something inside And someone around tryin' to spoil what we found Don't let her come between us ... Every once in a while like in a rearview mirror I see parts of my life and still parts of her eyes watching me Still wanting me - not letting go and set me free Now this is me and you - what are we gonna do To be true and to resist all the goods from the black list I owe us some tries - no more lies - This damn B-movie I don't wanna see twice Don't let her come between us ... From time to time - still feel her sneakin' around Tryin' to put us down - you know what I mean Stealin' kerosene from our plane To keep us down on the ground of the nation of pain Now this is me and you - what are we gonna do To be true - blow away all the grey and step into the sun No, I won't be the one to commit a hit and run Don't let her come between us ...
