Track Name: not my rules
I have to clean my room
can't play my music loud
I may not sleep till noon
no weekdays-going out

I have to nod politely
when some idiot talks
critisize just slightly
the most ignorant folks

I have to pay the bills
to fill my basic needs
the doc will give me pills
when my protest exceeds

I have to work for a living
to have some insufficient means
and nobody's giving
a damn bout happiness it seems

these are not my rules
I didn't lay them down
these are not my rules
I need a way around
I never signed a form
so why should I conform
when I dont fit into the norm

you can't have female friends
everyone knows how that ends
look good and do some sports
after ten years divorce

you have to sharpen your elbows
get ahead of your fellows
if you don't win – you lose

these are not my rules
I didn't lay them down
these are not my rules
I need a way around
I never signed a form
so why should I conform
when I dont fit into the norm
Track Name: liar!
I don't believe you not a single word
this is the stupidest thing that I have ever heard
you drive me nuts
though you have guts
for lying straight into my face

I don't believe you not a single line
I can't imagine that you have got a brain
this is so wrong
it don't belong
into an honest artist's song

oh no oh no oh no oh no
like this you'll never get my vote

I don't believe you not a single thing
how you did you make it into the text I sing?
this is so dumb
you act so plumb
when I see you my mind goes numb

oh no oh no oh no oh no
like this you'll never get my vote

I don't believe you not a single word
this is so stupid it is absurd
you make me nuts
though you have guts
for lying straight into my face
Track Name: we will die
when I wake in the morning opening my eyes
and I turn on the TV and see the news headlines

and I pick up the paper and read of war and crimes
then I stop and I wonder about these horrid times

and then I tremble when I feel the rising pain
and then I crumble 'cause everything's in vain

we will die
tonight
or tomorrow
all that sorrow

videos of beheadings show up on my PC
refugees in the desert starve on live TV

we have lost compassion and humanity
we have crossed the border into the land of insanity

and then I tremble when I feel that rising pain
and then I crumble 'cause everything's in vain

we will die
tonight
or tomorrow
all that sorrow
Track Name: lost key
my mind is turning in circles
nothing there to see
looking through my pockets
for all eternity

I try to have a vision
recall a memory
by brain is on a mission
and failing constantly

I lost my self
when I lost my key
there is an empty shelf
where it's not supposed to be

I put it in my jacket
I swear it must be there
I reach into the pocket
and once again despair

I lost my self
when I lost my key
there is an empty shelf
where it's not supposed to be

I will not trust my consciousness any more
and if I must it's shaken to the core
the facts are fluid
truth is all fake
my reality will break

I lost my self
when I lost my key
there is an empty shelf
where it's not supposed to be

I lost my self
when I lost my key
there is an empty shelf
where it's not supposed to be
Track Name: no fun blues
when I was 18 going to the public pool
all the girls wore topless
and if they didn't they weren't cool
nowadays a seamless tan
is the privilege of an overweight gran

when I was 20 my band was rocking all night long
and all we needed
was three chords to have a song
now I work on the music much more
put it on the net and then it's ignored

this is the no fun anymore blues

when I was 22 I used to eat like a bull
a four course meal
and I was never even full
now I have just soup for dinner
and still no chance of getting any slimmer

when I was 25 we played "settlers of Catan" all night
trading sheep for stone
until the early sunlight shone
now when we throw a seven
we check the time and it's not yet eleven

this is the no fun anymore blues

all my life I never mean a word I say
irony is my religion
and sarcasm is my way
now when I joke at work
people stare at me like I'm the jerk

the younger people they just don't know no fun no more
they're so ambitious
and generally just a bore
though I'll keep a-joking
after I die they'll laugh no more

this is the no fun anymore blues
this is the no fun anymore blues
Track Name: season of doom
sun is shining flowers have grown
but I am crying and staying at home
I lie in my bed and my eyes are red
my cheeks are wet and I feel like I am dead

this is the season of love in the air
this is the season of bloom
this is the season I wish wasn't there
this is my season of doom

my friends invite me to go for a run
to sit in the park checkt out girls and have fun
I have to decline and that's due to the fact
that my face is swollen 'cause the plants are having sex

this is the season of love in the air
this is the season of bloom
this is the season I wish wasn't there
this is my season of doom

and when I go out to catch the springtime breeze
I grab for a tissue and sneeze

this is the season of love in the air
this is the season of bloom
this is the season I wish wasn't there
this is my season of doom

this is the season of love in the air
this is the season of bloom
this is the season I wish wasn't there
this is my season of doom
Track Name: this is the moment
this is the moment that I have feared
this is the second time that it is here

this is the moment that should not come
this is the second and then it's done

this is the moment
this is the time
when fate will be judging all my crimes

this is the moment of truth for me
this is the second when I will finally see

this is the moment
this is the time
fate will decide and flip my coin

and I always feared it wouldn't last
and I should have learnde from the past
but now the end is near

this is the moment
this is the time
when you decide if you will stay mine

and I always feared it wouldn't last
and I never learned from the past
but now the time is here
Track Name: I don't care
you say you’ve got a real good reason
and that you’ve been thinking long and hard
you say you didn’t take this easy
but you are looking for a new start

you have to move into the future
and have to find yourself again

I don’t care
I don’t care
I don’t care
I don’t care

you say you hope that I won't hate you
because you want to stay my friend

you were so glad that I would date you
but as they say, all good things must end

I don’t care
I don’t care
I don’t care
I don’t care

you say I soon will find another
cause I am a sweet and caring man

I don’t care
I don’t care
I don’t care
I do not care
Track Name: some coal
what is a mountain if not a hill?
what is a fountain that's frozen still?

what is a river when it flows to the sea?
what is so special about you and me?

is there a secret that runs through our veins?
what is the sequence that led to our being?

how can you hear it when I touch the strings?
how can we even ponder such things?

some coal
some air
lots of water
and you're there

is there a sparkle to light our flame?
or are we pieces in some kind of game?

why should I choose to believe in some truth
when I can continue to play my own blues?

some coal
some air
lots of water
and you're there
Track Name: all that remains
all that remains when you remove the outer shell of your life
all that remains when you let go of your possessions and love

all that remains when you step out of your clothing and shoes
all that remains when you leave the path that has been paved for you

one room
one spoon
one day
a way

all that remains when you let loose the sorrows and woes
all that remains when you reduce the yesses and nos

one room
one spoon
one day
a way

all that remains when you break out of your life and shout
all that remains when everything stops
