Cardiac Cadillac Walking down the Street Arms wide open Starless in your head Listen to the King In times of the crimson tide Heart beats interrupted Slowness of the mind Fearless to survive In times of the crimson tide I’ve seen so much I’ve cried enough My tears were sweet I stayed so calm Watched you from afar Wished to be closer I watched the rain I prayed for sun I’m always on the run and I knows our name and I fear your Lips No food, only cries Happiness was a warm gun Now it's gone and cold forever Forever Forever I’ve seen so much I’ve cried enough My tears were sweet I stayed so calm Watched you from afar Wished to be closer Produced, Arranged, Composed and Performed by Jake Zoo Drums, Keyboards, Percussion and Vocals by Jake Zoo Guitars & Solo by Stefan Machalitzky Additional Keyboards by Till Sahm aka Sjan & David Haller

I am down (with you) Long dark nights have come to an end And Boys like Girls and Girls like Boys And I like you but you don’t like me... What Happens when your all time heroes, start looking like your ex wife's new Lover? You cut her hair until she looked like her And Boys like Boys and Girls on Girls... And Tits are timeless and dicks are dicks No matter what you do I am down with you I am not a man of too many secrets, the one I keep is you. But I am down with... I am down I am down with you Boys like Boys and Girls on Girls... And Tits are timeless and dicks are dicks Oh, what a Breakable Youth you have!?! One is on Prozac, the other’s stoned, One isn’t ugly and the third one is uncertain One died on Aspirin, one drunk himself to death The third one killed a chicken, But the chicken looked good to me But I am down with...

The Battle for my Heart Sometimes we see things, sometime they are not the way they appear to be. Reflecting lies in your eyes, it's the secret chemistry of Hope And the light room is changing, it’s changing around you and me, Babe Sometimes we see things, sometime they are not the way they appear to be. Reflecting lies in your eyes, it's the secret chemistry of Hope `Cause You lost the Battle for my Heart That’s the worst thing to lose You drove the car against the wall You were talking to my dead Body And the light room is changing, its changing around you and me Sometimes we see things, sometime they are not the way they appear to be. Reflecting lies in your eyes, in your blue blue eyes Its the light room `Cause You lost the Battle for my Heart That’s the worst thing to lose You drove the car against the wall You were talking to my dead Body I am naked on the floor No Last words of wisdom No more tears for fears Cause` You Lost, You lost the Battle for my... For my Heart! You lost the Battle for my Heart That’s the worst thing to lose You drove the car against the wall You were talking to my dead Body Arranged and Composed by Sebastian Borkowski and Jake Zoo Produced and Performed by Jake Zoo Drums, Keyboards, Percussion, Harp and Vocals by Jake Zoo Rhodes Solo by Alex Trebo

Komm näher Du wirst sehn, dass das Leben sich dreht, wenn du dich drehst und immer weiter gehst Ach komm näher, komm näher zu mir! Ich steh am Abgrund Auf völlig falschem Farbgrund Beziehungen aufgebaut auf totalem Seelenwund Energie verbraucht, Herz abgeraucht, Kopf zersägt, Fuß verstaucht Du wirst sehn, dass das Leben sich dreht, wenn du dich drehst und immer weiter gehst Ach komm näher, komm näher zu mir! Ich stand am Abgrund Auf völlig falschem Farbgrund Beziehungen aufgebaut auf totalem Sellenwund Energie verbraucht, Herz abgeraucht, Kopf zersägt, Fuß verstaucht Ich drehte meine Runden, suchte einen Berg Du hast mich festgebunden an meinem Laufrad, gabst mir einen Turm, hoch genug um nicht zu ertrinken Gib mir nen bisschen Grund zum leben Gib mir nen bisschen was zum schweben Ich kann das alles nicht mehr heben Wollte ich doch nach unserm Glück streben Produced, Arranged, Composed and Performed by Jake Zoo Drums, Keyboards, Percussion and Vocals by Jake Zoo Synth Bass & Strings by Alex Trebo Additional Keyboards by David Haller

The Lonely Animal Song I had a Dream And I dreamed it a million times Night after night it came to me But I wonder will it ever come true My dream was Fragile and Wild My dream was to form a band To be like a unit and hit the road Hit it real good for years to come To be one family Have the good times and the bad times I talked a lot about it And I wished for the good old days, but seeing signs on the wall, not really helped not from seeing it fall But in the end it always comes down to this one: The only Love there is, is the Love we make! I had a Dream And I dreamed it a million times Night after night it came to me But it’s so out of time to give commitment, true love, All that we have learned is contrary to that I had a Dream And I dreamed it a million times Night after night it came to me Always hit me in cold sweat My expectations were high And my pride was strong But no matter how hart I had tried, in the end I nearly died I had a dream And I dreamed it a million times Night after night it came to me Always hit me in cold sweat Produced, Arranged, Composed and Performed by Jake Zoo Drums, Keyboards, Percussion and Vocals by Jake Zoo Backing Vocals by Esmeralda Conde Rui Additional Keyboards by Alex Trebo, Till Sahm aka Sjan Flute Solo by Sebastian Borkowski Keyboard Solo by Stefan Rusconi Guitar Solo by Adrian Koenig Synth Horns by David Haller Bass ending by Micha Kaplan

Everything is a Ruin No one knows how it feels down there When you are really down When you lost your good old crown, and everything that was belonging to you You lost it all and you will not find it again Its all gone All gone All gone You are one of these people, who is only happy, when everything else is ruined Now you sit there and search for the Reasons You prepare for a another cold season Counting debts of no ending Life to you is an emergency landing, and I can’t explain to you, who is responsible for this mess So come on and ask So come on and ask me You are one of these people, who is only happy, when everything else is ruined Produced, Arranged, Composed and Performed by Jake Zoo Drums, Keyboards, Percussion and Vocals by Jake Zoo Synth Strings by Alex Trebo Synth Bass by Till Sahm aka Sjan

Brickland Storm is coming Lightening above you and me Get in the car We have to get out of fear Dark clouds, eyes wide shut Out of brickland Into the happyland Gated hearts on gated people Peak oil, peak Frame, peak Fame Last Chance, every minute counts, SOS Out of brickland Into the happyland War Wedding, only the best can win! I can’t sleep anymore I am afraid of you! I can’t sleep anymore I can’t dream anymore I can’t breath anymore I am afraid of you! I am afraid, I am afraid of myself! Other mothers have nice girls too... That’s what the others might say Drinking as a part of me, sinking like a ship on a deep see When you hold my head, I was so glad I fought my way through, while you lived on the sunny side I burned out while you lived on the other side And I am off to neverneverland again I can’t sleep anymore I am afraid of you! I can’t sleep anymore I can’t dream anymore I can’t breath anymore I am afraid of you! I am afraid, I am afraid of myself!

You Said You said we will be happy, but happy was written wrong You said you're gonna trust me, but the trust was long gone You promised me a garden, but you sent me straight to hell You offered me the sunshine, but then you let it rain well It’s hard for my to tell, if you are my personal hell You dropped my in the well, thank you and farewell You said we will be happy, but happy was written wrong You said you're gonna trust me, but the trust was long gone It’s hard for my to tell, if you are my personal hell You dropped my in the well, thank you and farewell It’s hard for my to tell!

What’s in the Dark I am getting cold seeing you Dreams crashed in Berlin Mental Bruises on your mind Where is your heart? Its wind nor rain, nor dark of night My brain has a short circuit What's Done in the Dark always comes to light What's done in the Dark always comes to the light! What's done in the Dark always comes to the light! What if you could go back in time, and take all those hours of pain and darkness and replace them with something better?!? Mal geht`s ihm gut und dann geht`s ihm schlecht. Manchmal hat er Glück, doch meistens hat er Pech. Der Schnellzug zur Hoffnung ist lange entgleist, Im Haus der drei Sonnen, dass Groschengrab heißt. Alles auf einmal und sofort... Das Schiff geht unter doch der Käpt'n bleibt an Bord! What's done in the Dark always comes to the light! What's done in the Dark always comes to the light! What's done in the Dark always comes to the light!

Driving your Car Driving your car is a joy for myself I accelerate till we both nearly faint Give my your keys I will drive you to the gates of hell, while we listen to hell's bells on the radio We sit in a bar... The Barkeeper keeps looking at us like we are insane Cause One day she makes you cry And another day she makes you smile again Because one day... And another day She makes you smile again Smile again! Felling your lips so sweet and tight There's nothing better than a kiss while you drive wild We go outside to shoot rockets across the streets They explode fire and rain let me cuddle your feet Later that night we drive thought the big city lights Two wheels are in the air but we are still here Cause One day she makes you cry And another day she makes you smile again Because one day... And another day She makes you smile again Smile again! Signs on the wall ignored by us all Dirty old minds, full of broken hope and duck taped dreams Loosing ourselves to the kicks of speed and power of love Loosing the grip is like loosing yourself, to the hounds of god Bad memories will vaporize and fade away All that stays: a picture of us when we were insane Cause One day she makes you cry And another day she makes you smile again Because one day... And another day She makes you smile again Smile again!
