Dormer 02:56
I canʼt explain the feeling that sometimes runs through my mind all night long abandon the right to fall asleep waiting for something to end a life, a night switching sides ten million times getting off all bitter lines change the channel again and again afraid to give up control letting everything go life is too short to waste it on doubts I canʼt explain the feeling that sometimes runs through my mind all night long abandon the right to fall asleep waiting for something to end a life, a night I wasted my life why shouldnʼt I waste death (while I was) never fulfilling mine or their plans reading books to cure this disease to cure this good times hangover I canʼt explain the feeling that sometimes runs through my mind all day long abandon the right to stay awake waiting for something to end a life, a day I tried to paint it all black but I am running out of ink

wasting my day – wasting my life wasting every thought on it what the hell became of that small town kid it is easier to do what everybody does there is that small narrow path tarred with prejudice I donʼt want it – never needed it this pre-assembled life however we all live it never question and despise everything else the embarrassing, the unusual and the strange and the old and out of style the whole question makes me so sick I donʼt want to ask anymore I donʼt want to fight anymore I donʼt want to search no more for something else at least it forms identity makes me feel like home looks ok I donʼt want it – never needed it this pre-assembled life however we all live it never question and despise everything else the embarrassing, the unusual and the strange and the old and out of style and there is this mirror in every ad youʼre passing by with the desire to possess more than you ever need the pre-assembled life has taken from me more than I ever wanted born to consume and to buy stuff that I donʼt need

Leave behind 02:24
there are too many things – to see them all in one life weʼre sorting out – what feels not right canʼt we be born old – to grow younger each day and leave this world - in reverse a privilege denied to many and the greatest gift youʼve ever gotten a privilege denied to many but youth is still wasted on the young the years are passing by – but nothings working out the way you want it to still it gets you mad - youʼre counting these days by hitting the bottle so better sing – for yourself – or someone else as loud as you can donʼt hesitate – and focus on – on all the things you donʼt want to leave behind a privilege denied to many and the greatest gift youʼve ever gotten a privilege denied to many but youth is still wasted on the young

Late bloom 03:06
youʼre feeling warm and comfortable by the promises youʼve made every day please frame that moment when the emptiness stays outside knocking at your front door this soul will never leave this land give up security and contentment “pull your finger out” is what they say to be someone (better) but never good enough please donʼt ask me when youʼre gone was this effort worth all the pain that you went through standing next to your bed and the cold steps in youʼre feeling freer than ever before please donʼt ask me when youʼre gone was this effort worth all the pain that you went through

what has happened to all the dreams that you had once? and all the passion that was shining through? back and forth between your heart and head you canʼt seek fortune in yesterday Golden Keys cannot rust but they get lost sometimes Golden Keys – the only thing youʼve ever trusted in Golden Keys cannot rust but someone will take them Golden Keys – the only thing for you your mind will always stick in the past and this place called home is fading asylum isnʼt given everywhere all these memories that we share all these feelings that we bear is it me whoʼs stuck somewhere? are we both getting lost? Golden Keys cannot rust but they get lost sometimes Golden Keys – the only thing youʼve ever trusted in

I will not write this with best regards weʼre always tending to fall apart expect the best accept the worst thatʼs why we think that life is cursed sometimes life is a tennis match I never liked this game instead of looking forward I try to take the blame but my shoulders are weak they carry the weight of the world that I am fighting against getting jaded and feeling old let it go, let it go, to hell let it go punks like us like to pretend that life is not going well let it pass, let it pass I hate it when I ask how much time is left for us to act bad-ass I would trade nothing for a summer hang at OT 166 so itʼs all not as bad as it could be but times are changing for the worse this is a fact I canʼt ignore since 1994 let it go, let it go, to hell let it go punks like us like to pretend that life is not going well let it pass, let it pass I hate it when I ask how much time is left for us to act bad-ass skipping through my whole record collection “Into The Unknown” is my lonely island record but I heard it is not okay

Everlasting 03:01
you can dig the deepest holes you can plant the greenest grass seared fruits and withered grain is the only thing to pick without water there is nothing to crop pray for rain – you canʼt let go the feeling of hope when you loose – the hand that feeds you pray for rain – you canʼt let go the feeling of hope pray and wait you only pray and wait and youʼre spinning and you canʼt go on like this and youʼre waiting for your irrigation plant to be fixed the heat is getting more unbearable the endless fight — drought versus flood youʼre sick of all the fighting — youʼre sick of all the trying in a game you can only lose pray for rain – you canʼt let go the feeling of hope when you loose – the hand that feeds you finally the sky gets dark and you feel the first drops on your skin This is the barren land and you are giving in when dust fills your lungs you sleepwalk in the sand youʼre always waiting for clouds folded hands – closed eyes unable to write a note to be meant everlasting

everything I can see there is everything I donʼt want to see everything I can hear there is everything I donʼt want to hear I wonder if thereʼs someone whoʼs not feeling ashamed and how bad entertainment has become these days I donʼt wanna be buried in a couch cemetery between chips and coins I see people competing and trying to get the crown I see peoples blackouts the yellow press writes about I donʼt wanna be buried in a couch cemetery between chips and coins I donʼt wanna be buried in a couch cemetery Itʼs better to switch in hurry than being in a couch cemetery It is all so disgusting and dulling the mind neither searching for “top-girls” nor living in a jungle nor on a house-boat in Berlin.

Above all 02:57
some things canʼt be left unsaid and Iʼm repeating what canʼt be said enough youʼre waving the flag with wrong intentions youʼre proud of a nation but itʼs just the place where you were born nothing more nothing less you set yourself above all I canʼt find a reason to be proud or ashamed but non-open mindedness – I call it a crime it is better for us to raise our voice against borders and nationalism you set yourself above all I wave the flag against homophobia I wave the flag for anti-fascism I wave the flag for never giving in I wave the flag for anti-racism I wave the flag for not eating animals for being tolerant and free from bigotry I wave the flag for individuality I wave the flag for open-mindedness neither proud nor do I feel ashamed I would be proud if all these fascist dumbasses disappear

Furioso 01:31
we all hide behind our masks that we carefully built of the right stuff are we all fake? will you turn it off or force a brand new start. thereʼs nothing new to me anymore and these bruises will fade sarcasm safes – please set me free after laughter there comes tears and I will shred as long as it takes to put back an honest smile on my numb face. thereʼs nothing new to me anymore and these bruises will fade away thereʼs nothing new to me anymore and after laughter comes tears. the mediator between the head and hands must be the heart!

with reverse psychology you can win like a trilogy please donʼt push it too far just remember his name (Jar-Jar) you hate all authorities you never cared when they say “please” “They just try to drag me down” you wonʼt sing-a-long with me now when all the anger makes you blind to see that you canʼt walk the line when the walls come closing in please donʼt lose sight, donʼt give in you wonʼt sing-a-long with me now with reverse psychology you will love “Chinese Democracy” please donʼt push it too far just remember his name (Axl)
