Track Name: SOFT PANIC
go act like in front of a mirror
look straight into your eyes
let your thoughts get clearer
now roll your shoulders tightly
slowly bend a knee
start shaking a hip lightly

25 min – no fee – friends of mine – playing tonight

now take a sip with relish
let its coolness fill you out
let the world be embellished
the evening star is showing
start the day all over again
drink up, let’s get going
Track Name: GET RICH
what are you gonna do when you get rich
from one day to the other like a flick of the switch
will your life be more than just a little itch
what are you gonna do when you get rich

hey, you can’t always do what your mom wants you to do
you gotta follow your passion

what are you gonna do when you get big
you tear down all those walls till it makes you sick
no opinionated voice won’t do the trick
what are you gonna do when you get big

what are you gonna do when you get hip
your walk and your talk and no one gives a shit
grab the money, run and quit
what are you gonna do when you get hip
Track Name: GUERILLA
yeah, you’re all guerilla
in marketing, in policy
in every other act you be as dirty as they come

yeah, you’re all guerilla
in style, in dress, your knowing looks
as dirty as they come
as clean and cozy as it gets

yeah, you’re all guerilla
in arrogance, in song and dance
in romance, peace and love
as dirty as they come
Track Name: BLESSED
1984 – everyone was scared of a nuclear war
1989 – the walls came down, the wolves began to dine
and at their tables sat craftsmen, gents, aristocrats
acted as if heaven sent, filled their pockets to the max

blessed be the deaf and blind
not responsible in any kind
doomed be those who see
and hear for all eternity

spread the word of independence, a little collateral ethnic cleansing
tease out murderous crimes in most uncertain times
1985 – the gipper went to Bitburg, SS, high five
1991 – hearts and minds were locked, new wars to be won
Track Name: THE LUCK OF THE JEWISH
yeah, I know people who do hesitate
because they want a world without national states
one people’s only chance still is a nation
grasp that and be patient

a plight for peace on so many days
fuel for the light in the darkness in so many ways

use a sledgehammer to crack a nut
show how sensitive you’ve got
show you don’t ignore a blow
show you don’t ignore a single shot
Track Name: VAMPIRES
in the early hours of the morning
people tend to detect hopelessness in their own yawning
whatever’s happened in their sleep
been taken by a sweet caress right before dawning

vampires – real horror

vampirism is a crime at the end of the day

the monkey on your back tells you to run
you focus, focus, step by step
you win some, lose some
whenever there’s a chance to flee
optimize your identity
it’s so easy to get boring

the shadows long, the day to day is done
quick check that nothing’s going on
your batteries are low but you still run
all you feel is gravity
draining energy,
back to sleep
Track Name: BORING
run of the mill daft
run of the mill barmy
I’m tired of idiosyncrasies
especially when they bore me

run of the mill barmy
run of the mill daft
if you’ve only got one pencil
your life just stays a draft

run of the mill daft
run of the mill barmy
I’m tired of idiosnycrasies
especially when they hurt
the ones that pull you from the dirt
Track Name: THE TIDE
let us go below the sea
underwater odyssey
just a splash as we go deep
a smaller step, a bigger leap

dive, splash, body under water
let the elements roll

let us go below the sea
underwater odyssey
just a splash as we go deep
a smaller step, a bigger leap

let’s get tickled by the water
go where corals glow
and when the swell gets harder
we will never know

we sink down to unknown beaches
we lay low, no voice can reach us

can you imagine how cozy the ocean bed feels
can you imagine how gently and lightly we reel
can you imagine the tide

let us go below the sea
underwater odyssey
just a splash as we go deep
a smaller step, a bigger leap
