Track Name: Don't know what to do about myself
"Don't know what to do about myself"


Sky upon the earth
Flashin’ screens above the head
Mind over matter
Different thoughts every single day

That's why
I don't know what to do about myself
Don't know what to do about myself
How long will I be so confused
When will I do anythin’ good?
I don't know what to do about myself
That's botherin’ my head

In the evening it starts again
A bottle of whiskey and some pot are my friends
But why am I still complainin’?
Cause I have some people by my side
And they can always help

But still
I don't know what to do about myself
Don't know what to do about myself
I cannot live inside this mess, but who will tell me about it first?
I don't know what to do about myself
Maybe that's pointless to say
Track Name: I melted in your heart
„I melted in your heart”


Over the towers
Above the oceans and seas
I’m flyin’ to get you
But you’re still out of reach

After all
I’m fallin’ deep down low
And I don’t care

Echo of these days
Like a knife in my chest
Don’t cry my dear
For me everything’s clear

Those summer nights so far from the crowd
When the ocean gave us storms and kicked us out
Then I melted in your heart
Then I melted in your heart

Below the surface I found asylum
Just to recover
Please forgive me and forget us
I’ll stay in here
Track Name: Close to you
„Close to you”


I wanna hold you
I wanted to do that for the first time we met
Then somethin’ strange happened to me
I can’t even explain this sensation
I had a lot of fun
Tryin’ to guess what your name was
It might be so silly
But I really remember that day

When you smiled and laughed to me
It was nothin’ for you but means a lot to me

Accidentally we found each other again
Oh, Is that a quirk of fate?
Or a sign in the air?
I can’t promise you that I’m thinkin’ only about friendship
Every single day
I will try to prove how much I care

“Cause I remember when you smiled and laughed to me
It was nothin’ for you but means a lot to me
I’ll knock on your heart, climbin’ trees and mountain tops
Just to show
That I’m not a stranger, not mad
A guy who’s pretty sad when you’re absent

Fair-haired! I’m waitin’ for your turn
You can run away, but hope you’ll stay in tune

Without declarations, but with the hope for a better tomarrow
I just wanna be

Close to you
Track Name: Fate
"Fate"

Tragic night with a lady
At the disco
Pink color lights up the floor
She kisses a man in the bathroom
And now acts as if nothing happened
But I know what she did

Everybody calls her ‘whore’
But I know this type
She's just hidin’ big sensitivity
She's dancin’, she's drinkin’
Music drives her wild
Poor soul, lonely heart

Now I see what's the difference
Between women and men
We are the same but in different bodies

Now I see what's the difference
Between women and men
Our sins taste the same

Languid me, so tired me
But still not enough
I'll drink until the end
I'm in fever for sure
And can't explain
How I led myself to be such a beast

Her penetrating gaze
Can't detect who I am
Without someone's death
We won't know

We won’t know
We won’t know
We won’t know

Now I see what's the difference
Between women and men
We are the same but in different bodies

Now I see what's the difference
Between women and men
Our sins taste the same
Track Name: Inexcusable blues
„Inexcusable blues”

First thing I remember
Is that cute smile on your face
I was the only pretender
Jesus blessed us with his grace
Now you’re leavin’ for the States
But I ain’t gonna wait for you

Too much time has passed
Even for me
The fault lies in both of us
But finally I’m happy to be free

You’ve let me down
More than once
But now I’ve got strength
To take my chance
For a rock’n’roll life
Although sometimes it’s so dangerous
But it’s got to be, got to be
Like a storm
In the middle of an ocean
Track Name: Graveside
„Graveside”


Marching among roses
Marching In the rain
With the coffin on my shoulder
With the weight of those days

Down on my knees
I can only see the darkness

Some owls on the branches
Some wolves around me
I’m standing next to the graveside
I’m standing next to the beast

Down on my knees
I can only see the darkness
Down on my knees
I can only see the darkness
There are no tears
There’s only the darkness…
Track Name: Away from love
"Away from love"


Once I had
Your body
Naked in my bed
Black hair
On your shoulders
Unveiled white breast

Currant mouth because of wine
Sweet whisper

Relationship
Us?
Something like that does not even exist?
Yes, I'm sorry
For nothing
How to get rid of your charm?

With time it will pass
But I want to keep your flavor

From the window
Through the stars
Jumping with you on my back
Unknown destinations
Strange places
Close my eyes to forget

A road to nowhere
Long distance
Only faith
Together
Forever
'Till the end
A road to nowhere
Long distance
Only faith
Together
We are nothing
Nothing but the truth

From the window
Through the stars
Jumping with you
Away from love…
Track Name: Darkness bound
"Darkness bound"


Gotta be careful 'cause love's on my trace
With a poison that opens old sores
Can tell sheer lies right to my face
Or worse the truth that hurts even more

Darkness bound like a password
To lonesome spirit
In fact, just forgotten
When I rise again comin’ with hope
The door is still shut
Night under the moon - my chase after memories

Go to hell, poor lover, just go
Find no mercy for your wretched soul
Lovin' you was full, full of the rough
My heart may be broken, but I am tough

You were born to hurt and let down
You razed my dreams right to the ground
You made my life a misery
Had to kill this love to set free

Darkness bound…

Darkness bound like a password
To lonesome spirit
In fact, just forgotten
When I rise again comin’ with hope
The door is still shut
Night under the moon - my chase after memories

Darkness bound like a password to lonesome spirit
In fact, just forgotten
Durin’ the sunset I'll be waiting for love
But I must remember that it may not come

Darkness bound like a password to lonesome heart
In fact, just forgotten
Cryin’ myself to sleep
Gonna chase after these memories
Cryin’ myself to sleep
Track Name: Home
“Home”


Through the dark night I would like to invite
Everyone to my home
Just feel the freedom and take all your brothers
'Cause everyone’s goin’ to my home
Follow me because I’m your angel
And come with me ‘cause we’re goin’ to my home
Follow me I need your presence
You’ll feel as good as in heaven in my home

Grace of the Lord is the very truth
So let’s pray for love
Grace of the Lord is the very truth
So let’s pray for love
For me and you

Heaven’s kingdom is the place where I was born
I’m going through the clouds to my home
Just feel this love and try to touch the stars
‘Cause now we’re goin’ to my home

Grace of the Lord is the very truth
So let’s pray for love
Love in this world is not all that true
But everyone can see the people who want to give their love for me and you
