Track Name: New4
My secret recipe
Has vanished into dust
I swear that sucks
You don't care, Oh I see
It hurts to some degree

But I'm fine
I strove against the stream
This is what I lost
What was mine
I gave it everything
Gave what I lost

I learned something new
The only chance to live
Is acting deaf
Welcome déjà-vu
It's actually not that new
Track Name: Failed Teacher
Here you go, tell me things I want to know
Down below, that's where I wish to go

Can't you see, you keep on playing much too long
The wannabe, the one who knows what's going on
So spread your words, make sure we find
All that goodness of your mind

So here we go, a place that we have been before
So how about you, will you go on telling me what to do
Like said before, but sure I'll tell you once more
Maybe you're right, but I just want to live my life

Can't you see, you keep on teaching much too long
Me wannabe, one who knows what's going on
With every word, make sure we find
All that pureness of your life

Can't you see, you keep on teaching much too long
The wannabes, the ones who know what's going on
So spread your words, make sure we find
All that goodness of your mind

So spread your words, make sure we find
All that goodness of your mind
Track Name: Last Night I Sold My Soul on Ebay
Last night I sold my soul on eBay
But no money river flows
The highest bid was much too low
And now the devil chose the cheap way
I guess they underrate my life
Or the market's satisfied

The IT revolution has offered a solution, but it failed
Overwhelming powerselling

Last night I sold my soul on eBay
Now I'm acting like a fool
Being someone else's tool
I tried to hide behind a wall of fire
But in the information age
Nobody is safe

The IT revolution has offered a solution, but it failed
Overwhelming powerselling

Last night I sold my soul on eBay
Tonight I found my soul on eBay

The IT revolution has offered a solution, but it failed
Track Name: I'm OK
I have tried to run away
I have tried to count the days
I have thought of so many ways
So many ways of one thing to say
I live this dream with you as mine
I should have told you at least a thousand times
A thousand times you ran away
You're leaving me with only one thing to say

I just want to say the end of this day I'm back
And I want to know if you're ok with it
Because every second away we lose another bit
I just want to say I'm ok

It's been a while since we're apart
I feel empty, I've got nowhere to start
They say that time can heal all pain
But I don't know if I can face this once again
I had this dream with you as mine
I should have told you at least a thousand times
A thousand times you ran away
Leaving me with only one thing to say
Track Name: The Blues
She is a conqueror
An everyday transformer
And I want to own her
I'll never ever let her go

And I'll never ever tell her
No I'll never ever confess to her
I'll never ever confess to her
My love

A mission undercover
And you're my secret lover
And I try to hold you
Wrap myself around you

But I'll never ever tell her
No I'll never ever confess to her
I'll never ever confess to her
My love
Track Name: Get Along
Don’t just walk away
What I do, I cannot explain
Don’t you look away
Please don’t assume I really mean what I say

Cause when I try to speak things out
Stupid things come out of my mouth
I’m just trying to reach you
But I say I don’t need you
That’s my way to get along

So don’t you look my way
When I’m angry, I’m starting to complain
Do I have to say
That I feel strong and joyful when we play

When we play all these words fade away
Then I know there is nothing to say
Yes I know, there is nothing to say
Track Name: Dude, You Can't Even Change A Light Bulb
I acquired a thing called self-esteem
Lowered standards, if you know what I mean
It gets me through the night, my future's looking bright
No hard thinking, weighing and pondering
Indeed it's simple, it makes me wonder and
I never really tried, it leaves me mystified

Up all night, no forty-two in sight
It's not worthwhile the strain
So I avert the eyes

I'm not thinking, therefore I am
My understanding is to not understand
There ain't no pain and crime if it's not in my mind
I can't handle this thing called self-esteem
So light a candle and bless my suffering
I don't want to try, it's easy to get by

Up all night, no forty-two in sight
It's not worthwhile the strain
So I avert the eyes
Sometimes my brain passes me by
A last pitiful glimpse
And then it's out of sight
Track Name: Leave
I found my reason to decline
There's not a trace of me to find
I lost my will for sympathy
Is this how it's supposed to be

I don't think so, but I don't mind
That's just the way it goes
Every time you're leaving me behind

Hey operator hold the line
Cause here's my reason to decline
And though I might seem quite deranged
You still smell like summer, I still feel like rain

Turn the lights down, and shut the blinds
That's just the way it goes
Every time you're leaving me behind

Still got no reason to decline
There's a lot of you here to find
And every time you look at me
I feel that we're supposed to be

You don't think so, but I don't mind
That's just the way it goes
Every time you're leaving me behind
Track Name: Home
Don't smile when you're afraid
Cause I know you cannot fake
Tell me when you're down
And you know I'll be around

If you want to settle down - I'm there
If you want to change town - say where
If you want to change your mind - I'm fine
As long as you tell me, you tell me

Here it goes, another day
We feel our time is running away
But please don't dim the light
I want to see you by my side

If you want to settle down - I'm there
If you want to change town - say where
If you keep on changing your mind - I'm fine
As long as you tell me
If you want to give me names – alright
If you stop buying me flowers - I'm fine
You may even change your hair
As long as you're there
Track Name: The Rockies
I often fail to recognize
It takes a while to hit my eyes
I know we differ on what's musical art
But even Depeche Mode won't tear us apart

I'm down here where scaredy-pants meet
And I know that you're up there
But those stairs feel like the Rockies
And once again
Vertigo has done its share

You held my hand in suit and tie
And though I tried, you know I could not cry
You place the sun over true tragedies
“Thanks for your care” is not enough
Not in the least
Track Name: Don't Give Me A Reason
Time to wake up
It’s getting late
No time to ask yourself if there’s another way
To live your life
And spend your days
Would you be happier with a little change

Don’t give me a reason that I don’t try to find
Don’t give me a chance to change my mind
Will I be happy when it’s done
Or do I waste my time trying to hold on
Am I searching a reason
When there’s no reason to find
No reason to leave it all behind

Time to lie down
Reflect a while
I don’t get the whole concern about error & trial
I better stay, if all else fails
Every exit is an entrance somewhere else
Track Name: This Week's Schedule: STFU
Take a break for heaven's sake
It's just past nine and all we do is debate
Bloody hell, I'm bloody well
There's plenty more for you to compensate for

It's just that I've been thinking

And if I choose to stay here
I will remember what it's like to feel
The things that made me stay here
And I'll endure it all again

Misery loves company
I'm not the one, obviously
No one's home but an unplugged phone
And constant doubt how to figure it out
Track Name: Mad Luck
I can hear you
A whispering voice, an empty room
I can feel you
No one else can like I do
And I still see you as you walk through gloomy streets
Only I can see you
Only I can feel the heat

You should have never gone away from me
No one should ever know the truth
And in those lonely nights your voice softly calls my name
Then I stop the time, I know you're waiting there for me

No one knew you
I bet you didn't know yourself
I could give you the love you never had
You know I loved you like I had never loved before
I never talked to you
I know you also wanted more

Now I'm leaving before time drives me insane
You know I'm bleeding so much
I cannot mind the hate
We both know that we could never fight the fate
You see me coming
You see me walking through this gate
