Track Name: Cardiac Cadillac
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

Track Name: I am down (with you)
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...

Track Name: Gespenster von Dir
Gespenster von Dir

Ich seh hier nur...
Gespenster

Punks oder Moods
Teds oder Thrasher
Popper und Freaks
Bier oder Wein
Zu Hans oder Frank
Berlin oder München
Er oder Sie
Heut oder morgen
Fragen über fragen
Tag ein Tag aus
Wer sieht nun wirklich
besser aus?
In die Video Hölle...
Ich seh hier nur ...

Ich seh Gespenster
Ich seh hier nur
Ich seh Gespenster
Gespenster von Dir!

Nachts ziehen sie sich was buntes an
Nachts wollen sie sich wie von sinnen betrinken
Nachts wollen sie Dir Deine Seele abkaufen
Nachts wollen sie sich mit Deinem Körper berauschen
Ich seh hier nur ...

Ich seh Gespenster
Ich seh hier nur
Ich seh Gespenster
Gespenster von Dir!

Und sie tanzen!
Und sie tanzen!

Track Name: The Battle for my Heart
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

Track Name: Komm näher
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

Track Name: The Lonely Animal Song
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

Track Name: Everything is a Ruin
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

Track Name: Brickland
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!

Track Name: You said
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!

Track Name: Whats in the Dark
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!

Track Name: Driving your Car
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!
