Track Name: connected overused
connected overused (2006)

I feel connected to you
this word is today overused
I have no soul
but you

something is running through my hands
something I can't understand

if you want to go through
you are welcome too

reach a point of no return
reach a feeling so absurd

and the end is always near
and the end is always here

always been this way
why the hell I'll say
that I feel afraid just now

no, I don't care
If I'm dead or living
No, I don't care
If I'm dead or living anymore

as long as I can
look at you
see that you love me
and this love is true

that's all that I care
all that I wonder and worry about
the look in your eye and the feeling that you love
yeah you love me
Track Name: love concept alpha
love concept alpha (2000)

hey
we get along so well
hey
we had no time to deceive or to complain
we better stay outisde of the rain
we better keep looking at the water falling
and the water is falling now
yeah the water falling

and now
all I can do is remember you
and you still look pretty nice to me
in my thoughts in my wandering moments
your black hair, white skin in the night

and all the useless meanings we find...
it was so useful at the time
when we used to look at the water falling
as we say:
“you are the meaning of my life”
Track Name: time to go
time to go (1994)

when I take my time to find you
cos' I know it's time to go
my heart is full
my feeling find you

falling down
falling to

my days, my darling
you cannot realize
your meaning to my life

my life is you, my life is blind
but not a lie
as I always have been so tired, tired, tired...

when I take my time to find you
cos' I know it's time to go
if my hate turns around you
please don't take it bad
cos' the world is sad
and I'm feeling very bad today

the firs time will be until
the end of times
the lonely sign
of burning skies
forgotten lies
the first time
Track Name: we are alone
we are alone (1994/2008)

loud sound in my head
anything now can make me mad

in the days you're not around
all I hear is this crazy sound

there are times
wich way you turn
all invention and despair

since you don't have enough time to learn
what you should and what you shouldn't care

all the people try to tell you
what you should have done and what you shouldn't

there also times
when all things that hurt
will leave you temporarily

just for a while
just for a time
Track Name: short memory (this life I dislike)
short memory (this life I dislike) (2007)

there's something I fear more than to die
is how can we feel by the end of the night
I wrote it this song
just forgot it to write down on paper
the words to remind me

this is a second version
the first one is lost
like our love

forever we'll stay at the same point we start
we never move and we are always too far
from happiness, glory and calmness

think you don't understand me at all
when you say I'm sad
I am pretty satisfied with the little things I have

of course there are many things in this life I dislike
and so are you
and so we all
Track Name: addictions
addictions (2005)

once I was a child
I didn't have addictions
I didn't kill myself
the way I do everyday
just taking something to make the pain away
once I was a child

I didn't have addictions
I didnt't kill myself
the way I do everyday
taking all these things that space my time
and let everything flies away

I don't feel guilty but I feel so tired
of taking all this stuff for such a long time
I'm waking tired and I'm sleeping dying
I wish I could be so far away

but I can't
the time is passing
no, I can't live other way

sometimes I wish my life was a little less complex
but at the end I just don't understand
why the things happen this way or that way
I wish I couldn't care

I don't feel
I feel so
feel so sick of myself

at the same time
getting sick and tired
of getting sick and tired
in itself
Track Name: the bore
the bore (2000)


it will be the same
we'll never understand the way
we loved each other long ago
it will be the same again

needless to say
that after all we still are friends
you can believe me endlessly
it will be the same again

falling into decay
the endless summer rain will rain
I'll stay at home at night today
it will be the same again

it will be the same
it will be the same
it will be the same again
Track Name: when you smile
when you smile (2006)

when you smile and you say
that i could have made it other way
I look at you I smile back
I try to make you feel better
I kind of hurts look at you
feeling bad because of me
that's what you say so it must be true
Track Name: older
older (1997)

I feel like I am not the same
I'm getting old I'm not the same
but I am not so sure
I cannot even blame myself...

let me hold your hand
to feel the same again
let me hold your hand
and we'll get close again
and we'll be friends again
I'll meet you in the end
Track Name: pothead
pothead (2006)

somehow I've made it this far
maybe it's not even far enough

but it took me so long
to make all these songs
I just can't get enough of this feeling

somehow I've made it this far
maybe it's not even far enough
but it took me so long
to get rid of this song
that you listen now

I do not feel
like I was real
like I was really made of gold

like I was here
trying to learn my life
trying to make all right

I just can't given up so easily

of doing for a time what I really want to die for
of doing for a time what I really want to die for
what I really want to die for
and nothing more
and nothing more

I do not have the time to say goodbye
I only try and show what I cannot hide
Track Name: look at the dogs playing
look at the dogs playing (2007)

I was living with a girl
she was younger than me
we were feeling very close
like we wanted to be

we were everything at first and so much more
then we'd start to fight a lot
and we were nothing more

we decided we gotta move to a bigger house
with a view and with trees
and space for the dogs

looked like this way
things will get much better
we were wrong
it didn't work
well, it doesn't matter

I was living with a girl
she was younger than me
I was deeply in love she was a dream to me

remember our first night in the house
we would live in such a big house only with the dogs

we were everyhting at first and so much more
then the everything at first became so bore

we decided again:
“we must take different ways”
not to be mean to each other
not to hurt each other more

I was living with a girl
she was younger than me
we were feeling very close
like we wanted to be
I was living with a girl
she was younger than me
I was deeply in love she was a dream to me
I was living with a girl
she was younger than me
it was nice and we were happy
for a small time

remember our first night in the house
we would live in such a big house only with the dogs

look at the dogs playing
