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 dragging, no pushing – let it flow Is it time to get lazy or time to go crazy To stop these developments 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 base cap 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 dragging, no pushing – let it flow Oh it’s good to see you – real good to see you I wanted too much now I 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 dragging, no pushing – let it flow

I'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 kinda move - oh oh no - we're pushing you You to surrender - give it up - we want you 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’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 rumors in the late news Trends, comments and never ending 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

Whatchagonnado if the sky turns blue When you leave the ways that you always walked on So what you gonna do if all your dreams come true Though you never knew what the hell to do Whatchagonnado if the sky turns blue When you leave the ways that you always walked on So what you gonna do if all your dreams come true Though you never knew what the hell to do Whatchagonnasay if the world turned grey And all the things don't work that you always worked on So what to do if dreams won't come true Though you always knew what the hell to do Whatchagonnasay if the world turned grey And all the things don't work that you've always worked on So what to do if dreams won't come true Though you always thought you knew what the hell to do

No matter what’s going 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 fight now that future’s at the door No matter what’s coming down, I’ll survive I’m not giving you the runaround In the rhythm of a broken heart life goes on With a cunning smile for another while Stop it now… Not matter what’s going 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 …

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 other one's bills 0r 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 trying 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 I still feel her sneaking around Trying to put us down - you know what I mean Stealing kerosene from our plane To keep us down on the ground of the nation of pain Now this is me and this is 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 ...

Come on - yeah - come on in come on out It's never too late for the perfect date Come on and have a look at us two Even if you don't care It's a trumpet and a bass - quelle belle affaire.

Now this is what we've got - what we were fighting for. Our visions disappeared - what are we hiding for. There's no one left to read so what am I writing for. What's going on now is nothing I was looking 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'll get there. Now this is what I find - what I was going for. Who led me all the way - I was never asking for. It 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...

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 here We gotta make a move, we gotta go Gotta make a move, we gotta get out of here Another try to high from low If your neighbor's name is still unpronounceable And nothing unpredictable 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...

I've got a father, a mother, a sister and a brother A son, a daughter and we hate each other Seems to be a normal family with a house and a car But nobody knows reality and how cruel we are We like to place some traps, now watch us step into If you ever wanna join us, could be nice for you All you gotta do is to win this game To wear the crown of the king of pain Don't you think it's funny to strangle my neck And to refuse to tear the daggers off my bag So you wanna be a killer? You wanna nuke the rest? You better listen to this, 'coz that's the best: "We are the Tab Two, don't you know we love you!"

Down down the alley you headfull 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 to send 'em to war It's the next generation who'll be forced to taste The 20th century party waste Taste, taste the 20th century party waste Down down the alley you headfull 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 queen There's a sweating fish in a desert puddle And an oil tycoon on a jungle jet crash scene It's the next generation who'll be forced to taste The 20th century party waste Taste, taste the 20th century party waste

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, 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 decisions let me try to count to three 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 for 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 for tea, hello Singapore - mais j'adore vraiment Paris We are 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

There's not a lot, not a lot, just the passing ground Forgot there'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 there'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.

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 here - 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 the things to come But we are the ones to do the first step 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 incomplete 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

I don't like my thoughts – don't trust my gods But won't lay down my horn and wait for a miracle Can't trust my ears – why trust my fears Why not erase this day and act... ...Like a patient – sweet and patient like the morning dew Quiet and silent sweet and violent like the sea Things turn solemn calm and awesome when I am with you You're the change – sudden and strange – the water Don't like my thoughts – don't like my frauds But won't lay down my horn and wait for a miracle I got up and worked like an animal Didn't care if I end up chemical Displayed my flesh to the canibals Can't fight my faults – why bribe my thoughts Why not cool down my soul and act... ...Like a patient – sweet and patient like the morning dew Quiet and silent blue and violent like the sea I feel sorry for my sorrows when I am with you You're the change – sudden and strange – the water I got up and worked like an animal Didn't care if I end up chemical Displayed my flesh to the canibals To shut up or to act like a radical To be a rock or to be compatible Poor boys end up dramatical Don't like my thoughts – don't trust my gods But won't lay down my horn and wait for a miracle No game no shame – no flash no flame Let me lay down my head and feel... ...Like a patient – sweet and patient like the morning dew Quiet and silent sweet and violent like the sea I feel solemn calm and awesome when I am with you You're the change – sudden and strange – the water You're the change – solemn and strange – the water You're the change – awesome and strange – the water Sudden and strange – the water Sudden and strange – the water Sudden and strange – the water Sudden and strange...

Stundenlang könnt ich neben Dir geh'n nur um Dir zuzuseh'n Wie Du Dich bewegst wenn Du gehst und lächelnd Deine Augen verdrehst, Wenn Du siehst was ich sehe, was sonst nicht sichtbar ist Ich hab' Dich vermisst - Mist Aber es ist wie es ist - und jetzt ist es gut, ja es läuft Die ganze Welt läuft rot und rund So wie Du, wie Dein Gang, wie Dein Mund Rot, rot, rot und rund… Stundenlang könnt ich neben Dir liegen bis wir Visionen kriegen Und dann seh'n wir uns geh'n ohne aufzusteh'n Und Dinge versteh'n ohne aufzuseh'n Was ohne Dich nicht so einfach ist, Ich hab Dich vermisst - Mist Aber es ist wie es ist und jetzt ist es gut, ja es läuft Die ganze Welt läuft rot und rund So wie Du, wie Dein Gang, wie Dein Mund Rot, rot, rot und rund… Jahrelang wirst Du durch meine Träume geh'n denn es tat gut zu seh'n Wie Du Dich bewegst, wenn Du gehst, lächelnd Deine Augen verdrehst, Wenn Du siehst was ich sehe, was für ihn nicht sichtbar ist Hat er Dich vermisst? Mist Aber es ist wie es ist und jetzt ist es gut, ja es läuft Die ganze Welt läuft rot und rund So wie Du, wie Dein Gang, wie Dein Mund Rot, rot, rot und rund …

Playing my horn is all I know - and I play it fast, I play it slow I blow it high, I blow it low - so you better shut up and let me blow I keep blowing my horn for hours and days - till I blew my fuse and I blew real ace When I open my eyes there's a big white face - and big white hands on a big white bass Pretty nice try, come one stop that fuzz - no stage ain't big enough for the two of us Play heavy metal lines and turn the bass down low To impress pretty girls it takes horns to blow.
