Track Name: Let It Flow
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
Track Name: Mind & Soul
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
Track Name: No Flagman Ahead
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
Track Name: Whatchagonnado
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
Track Name: No Way No War
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 …
Track Name: Between Us
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 ...
Track Name: Belle Affaire
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.
Track Name: Get There II
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...
Track Name: Wanna Lay (On Your Side)
I wanna lay on your side, I wanna wanna lay on your side
Wanna lay on your side, wanna sigh on your lie.
Track Name: Spot Of Choice
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...
Track Name: Out-O-Fear
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!"
Track Name: 20th Century Party Waste
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
Track Name: Vraiment Paris
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
Track Name: This Beat Goes Boom
This beat goes boom, boom in the rhythm of time,
Boom boom, on and on...
Track Name: (There's) Not A Lot
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.
Track Name: Sad News
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
Track Name: The Patient
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...
Track Name: Rot Und Rund
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 …
Track Name: My Horn
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.
