DEAR GREY SKY Dear grey sky They say you only cover the blue sky But they are idiots you know It's an ordinary monday afternoon And unfortunately I stopped smoking Dear grey sky I like to watch you Then i do other things And you're still there And if someone says This town is beautiful Under a grey sky Then it is Dear grey sky You never push it I might go for a walk Or maybe not It's getting dark now The world is all we have I never said that In a song

Nicer Person 03:38
NICER PERSON I guess he was A nicer person In an early demo version Of this song I guess he was A nicer person In an early demo version Of this song It‘s so sad That he turned back And none of us Could do a thing Indifference That‘s how it started No happy heart Not broken hearted You see his face Soon to forget it You talk to him Soon to regret it There‘s no doubt He sucks you out And none of us Could do a thing He fades away now While we sing

INTO THE WOODS When you went into the woods Why did you do it With your worn out navy boots I thought you would blew it It‘s so easy to pretend That trees are like people In the end When you went into the woods I stayed in the city Though the weather was nice I started to feel shitty It‘s so easy to pretend That animals will friend you In the end And I have to admit It would be cool if they did When you went into the woods You wrote “back to the roots” On your shirt When you went into the woods You wore a hat that made you look like a bird And I couldn’t decide Should I laugh Or should I cry When you went int the woods I went to see a doctor His name was Dr. Schulz And he was from Vienna He said that my subconscious Was to conscious to be true And I said that I lost All my unconsciousness to you When you went into the woods

Sludge 03:01
SLUDGE I never find no history No history in my mind Feelings pass and pictures last Landscapes from behind I never see no destiny Climbing up that hill While I whistle two-tone-melodies On my window sill And oh oh no They tore me out And said let‘s go I’m made of sludge I never build no building That someone might call stunning I have no disciples waiting For my second coming People seem to look at me As if I’m always there I like to smile at strangers And I have dark-brown hair And oh oh no They tore me out And said let‘s go I’m made of sludge And I am made of water I am made of sand And I am made of something That allows me to pretend And oh oh no….

Not Happy 03:14
NOT HAPPY When he came home from work He didn’t know what to do So he put his hands on the table The way he had learned it at school But nobody had a question And nobody let it ring So he finally jumped on the table And he finally started to sing I am not happy I’m tired and I hate my job It makes me sad to look out of the window It’s a mess and I want it to stop It was a lovely summer evening And everybody took his chance There was kissing and talking Laughing and walking There was listening to eurodance So he went through his closet There wasn’t much to go through But he found a tight orange t-shirt And he found some shiny white shoes He felt ready to make it happen And the mirror said that he was He even discovered his old hat The one with the shimmering stars And then he hit the street And he became part of the crowd The summer-breeze blew a smile in his face And the music was playing loud And this is where we lost him Cause we had to lose him somewhere So we raised our glass to his story And we made a high-five in the air Cause he was not happy He was tired and he hated his job It made him said to look out of the window It was a mess and it had to stop

The Window 04:21
THE WINDOW When we were young there was a fight Between real and artificial Both sides lost and signed the papers With their meaningless initials And now we can do everything And everything is cool This rooms create intimacy So why you‘re acting like a fool? But if you open up the window There will be another window Guess I need a hammer honey To find out from where the wind blows And then you called me to say: Dear There‘s no way left to disappear I lowered my voice and I said: Son In the end there‘s always one So we go on and cook our meals And tell each other how it feels To be so fuckin well connected Did you check that cat? Oh I thought I did But if you open up the window There will be another window Guess I need a hammer honey To find out from where the wind blows P.S. Let‘s bring the choir in I want them to stand straight and sing Raise their voices cut the swing Forgetting is not forgiving Forgetting is not forgiving Forgetting is not forgiving

Twisted Animals Her name was distant water His name was sunny street They lost their hearts in Venice Cause Venice is hard to beat They looked at dying castles Fead old bread to the birds And every time they turned to each other They were running out of words Old bread to the birds Old bread to the birds Sounds like another story A story from ancient times Where people did watching and walking Where people talked in rhymes Her name was distant water His name was sunny street They lost their hearts in Venice Cause Venice is hard to beat Hard to beat Hard to beat Oho The city slowly drifts back into water Oho Sunlight is burning holes into our eyes Oho We strawl around like twisted animals Oho In disguise

YELLOW SWEATER A yellow sweater On a plastic chair Someone is ringing And someone's not there The smell of coffee The humming of bees Stupid flags on the balconies If you throw a glass Out of the window It might change your life Or it might just burst If you go out for something And come home with nothing At least you know that it's not getting worse A mouth full of berries A belly full of waste Getting addicted To the bittersweet taste Of boredom of boredom I know it's a sin But there's a dim golden light When the summer runs thin

Every Sunset 02:59
EVERY SUNSET Go now Everything changed And there’s something strange In their ways now Looks like They turned you Into a bad memory With your heavy lids Bare feet silly boy But you’re still there Leaning at every wall Watch them passing by They’re always passing by Taking a cold eye On every sunset On every sunset Go now They will clean these streets In the morning And to be clear By cleaning I mean They will make them disappear And they will feel alright They always feel alright With a helpless smile On their babyfaces On their babyfaces Turn around Everything looks small If you are the horizon It’s a simple trick And it may not work In the long run But it will do it for today It will do it for today It will do it for today

I Adore You 04:08
I ADORE YOU I wrote a song for you With lyrics and chords About stuff like How much i adore you I pictured myself Sitting in your room And i saw you watching me Playing it for you It goes like Lalala i adore you It goes like Nanana this song is for you I tried to call you The other day But i couldn't reach you And i felt alone I took a walk Through your neighbourhood And i wrote a song On my way back home It goes like Lalala this song is not for you But it's better than the other one That says i adore you I adore you I adore you I adore you

Another Year 03:07
ANOTHER YEAR Odio Another year is gone Wipe your tears away And put a record on Play a happy song Where you can sing along Happy song Simple melody Nice philosophy Happy song Odio Time’s gonna kill us all The first line falls The second line stands tall But it’s a lovely day Look outside to say Lovely day People in the street Do their meet and greet Lovely day Cause after all is said and done We’re still here to praise the sun We give it all away We give it all away And after all is said and done We’re still here to praise the sun We give it all away We give it all away
