we're depending – strange – coz we call it understanding we pray and pay that the pavement's never ending things just happen without a warning no signs dawning, and no flagman ahead no flagman ahead sign no flagman ahead lots of forecasts, reviews and rumours in the late news trends, comments and neverending previews there's no doubt, no error we all know things get narrow, what's the future – is it bow or arrow? no flagman ahead sign no flagman ahead lots of forecasts, reviews and rumours in the late news trends, comments and neverending previews there's no doubt, no error we all know things get narrow, what's the future – is it bow or arrow? no flagman ahead sign no flagman ahead I'm turning round and round, going back and forth while I'm always looking for a new direction I'm moving up and down, saying yes and no there's no way to sell us permanent protection

I'd like to ask you, jazz, was it meant to be a rescue? it used to be just a suit that never dressed you too old, too dead, now we've got the chance to create a new cut, that invites you to dance to the rich and the poor man, the hangman and the foreman ding-a-ling, sing along, what's coming up to your door, man listening to the two tabs, trying a few steps forget the times of hanging around, you've got a pair of new legs do you wanna call your friends now, or dance now or do you wanna hold my hands now? or are there any other things that you always liked to do, like jammin' on a swingbridge I'd like to ask you, jazz, was it meant to be a rescue? it used to be just a suit that never dressed you too old, too dead, now we've got the chance to create a new cut, that invites you to dance to or is it because of you now, I'm true now that all the notes turn blue now and we should do these or other things, that we always liked to do, like jammin' on a swingbridge

there’s not a lot, not a lot, just the passing ground forgot here’s something above and the things around I’m walking and reminiscing I’ve got all that it takes, but still there’s something missing there’s not a lot, not a lot, that we’ve got to do we just play a few notes that are good for you we put a high note here and a low note there si on voit la plage, on veut la mer there’s not a lot, not a lot, that it takes to try if you step into a puddle, you won’t see the sky If you want too much, c’est de trop pour moi and if you even try, jamais assez pour toi it’s not a lot, not a lot, that it takes I tell you to get a higher survival value we put a high note here and a low note there si on voit la plage, on veut la mer there’s not a lot, not a lot, just the passing ground forgot here’s something above and the things around I’m walking and reminiscing I’ve got all that it takes, but still there’s something missing it’s not a lot, not a lot, that it takes I tell you to get a higher survival value we put a high note here and a low note there si on voit la plage, will man ans meer

we used to talk about walls and economical systems about humanimal rights and about love on long distance s’il n’est pas l’amour, s’il n’est pas la peine some are talking too loud mais ici n’est pas la scène too many things been told but never been done the word’s still on but the meaning is gone il ne faut pas séparer il ne faut pas passer paris you better try to make decisioins let me try to count the tree qu’est-ce qui se passe, was geht ab, what’s happening to me these days I’m getting lost with a smile on a stupid face berlin sans mur, london’s out of tea – mais j’adore vraiment paris qu’est-ce que tu veux, qu’est-ce qu’on fait, now that your dreams come true you may ask your shrinks, mais ils sont aussi fous maintenant la fête commence même s’il est seulement mardi we gonna think of having a political party qu’est-ce qui se passe, was geht ab, what’s happening to me these days there’s no fear to get lost when I see your face berlin sans mur, london’s out of tea, hello singapore – mais j’adore vraiment paris we were walking through walls and economical systems through personal fights, no respect without distance s’il n’est pas l’amour, il n’est pas la peine du singst so laut, mais ici n’est pas la scène
