Track Name: Let´s Go California
if she knew what she wants
she´d call me up

and follow me down
to where i live
and my nightmares are

to where my hopes
and all my dreams silently starve

if she knew what she wants
if she knew what she wants

let´s go california

if i knew what i want
i´d call call you up

and follow you down
to where you live
and your nightmares are

to where your hopes
and all your dreams silently starve

if i knew what i want
if i knew what i want

let´s go california

Track Name: Here On The Other Side
stand by my side babe
please, do not hesitate
for you are the real thing
i´ve been waiting for all my life

and i´m starting to shiver
cry myself a river
at night

and i sing in the night time
will i find the right rhymes
to make you stay,
please stay

here on the other side
where it´ s dark and cold
here i got left behind
feelin´ so sad and old

stand by my side
please, do not hide

and my heart starts to quiver
when you are with me,
when you´re with me

Track Name: No Hands!
hey there my friends
where are my hands?
i had lost them out there
in these cruel, cruel lands

of mistrust and hate
of misery and bad fate

i´m sinking deeper in the oceans of my mind
the collective soul of mankind
what has happened to our lives
what happened to our minds

come on my friends
gimmie back my hands
to touch
to let you know
i love you
i don´t wanna live without you

hey there my friends
gimmie back my hands
so i can give you back
what you once had lent
what you once had lent
my friends...

Track Name: Bye-Bye Butterfly
bye bye, let this butterfly fly
way down in the violent sky

and I hold you
and I need you
and when you need me, too
I´ll be a lovin´ you

sometimes you make me crazy
with all your latent maybes
sometimes i feel like livin´in a hole
and i cannot roam with this broken soul

bye bye, let this butterfly cry
way down in the crucial sky

and I hold you
and I need you
and when you need me, too
I´ll be a lovin´ you

Track Name: Save My Soul
so you leave for our hometown
are you missing the old clowns
you say travelling to you is fun

but all you do is run
away from me
yes, all you do is run
away from me

is this what you intend
to recover some old friends
some stories never seem to end

and I don´t want you to leave
when you´re here
and I don´t want you to leave
when you´re with me

save my soul tonight

I´m waiting for your call all night
don´t even know if you´re alright
or in a state of misery

but i can even hear you breathe
when you´re not here
and I don´t want you to leave
when you´re with me

Track Name: Underground
i´ve been up
and i been down
so many years i spent
livin´ underground

i´ve been high
and i been low
how it all got there
i don´t know

...but i´m still guessing

so why do i live on like this?

i´ve been blesseed
and i been cursed
sometimes it feels like
it can´t get any worse

i´ve been depressed
and yet obsessed
but i´ve decided to
quit that mess

... and to try my best

so why do i live on like this?

Track Name: How Long?
all these things
i´ve never said to you
all these times
i looked straight away

all these lies
showed you i didn´t care
all these pleasures
we could have shared

all these troubles
we could have left behind
all these mindless thoughts
i never should have thought

all these times
we should have loved and cared
all these trials of hate and despair

how long will i have to wait?

taste my body and taste my skin
taste everything and all of my sins

taste my tongue and taste my lips
touch my body and touch my hips

are you my companion. are you my friend?
are you my lover, will you take my hand?

are you my demon, my worst enemy?
are you the devil who can´t be with me?

Track Name: Heat Up The Gun
come on, girl, let´s make it
no longer let us fake it
and heat up the gun
before the sun
willl go down on you
will it drown all of you?

watch them killers in the sky
as they are flyin´ by
and drop their deadly load
onto the innocent
see them children cry
and watcht heir mothers die
all alone

Track Name: God´s Grace
hear what I say
it might all be a fake
but listen anyway

sometimes you´ll be lost
sometimes you´ll be saved
it´s all a matter of god´s grace

I am not a spokesman
for jesus and the other men
of holiness and the truth

but release me from the pain
that drives my soul insane
and all the people around me

see what I do
it might all be untrue
but it´s all for you
I confess

sometimes we´ll be lost
sometimes we will be saved
it´s all a matter of god´s grace

Track Name: Lost Valentine
now that you are gone
I have no place I belong
I´m a fading fool
haunted by ghosts of you

now that you were mine
no more your valentine
yes, you´re truly gone
fading in my songs

girl, come back
I want you to come back
I promise i do all right now

girl, come back
I need you to come back
I swear I be alright now

now it´s been seven days
that we´ve gone separate ways
yes, you´re truly gone
forever in my songs

Track Name: Christ Illusion
in the night
i try to disappear
where there´s no light
i have no fear

in this city
i feel so alive
´cause there´s no one
bothering my life

jesus christ
you should have saved my life
but where have you been
you should have washed away my sins
instead you told me lies
instead you told me lies

cry for pity, cry for help
cry in vain -
gotta help myself

in this city
I feel so alive
´cause there´s no one
bothering my life

jesus christ
you should have saved my life
instead you told me lies
instead you told me lies


in the night
i try to survive
where there´s no light
i seek to hide

i seek to hide...

Track Name: Jesus, Don´t You Leave Us
JESUS,
won´t you leave us!
it´s a world of the violent, a world of the cruel
and i no longer wanna be unfaithful to you

JESUS,
don´t you leave us!
don´t betray, don´t lie, but do believe us
that we need you in these hard times...

drinking the blood and the wine
numbed by televised crimes
but no longer i wanna close my eyes
from you and... your love

JESUS,
will you leave us?
or will you come down and love me
the way that you do
and i no longer wanna be unfaithful to you

oh, JESUS...

sippin´ the booze and the wine
hardened and dull our minds
but i no longer wanna hide
from your love and... grace
