Album 'Oblivion' 2010

Downtown Maggie

Going down town Maggie, meet you where the waters flow.
There's a psychedelic circle grinding down my wasted soul.
Redeemed, like a child. Full of goals.   

Yeah, the sight of the city melts my senses to a piece of pain.
Where cosmetic girls drive you crazy, in their short skirts, I'm sold!
Oh no, into the cold, and there'll be no tears, just creepy ghosts we've evoked.

No, everything will flow, everything we know, everything must go.  
Oh no, nevertheless we'll flow, nevertheless we'll roam.   
Never forget these fields of gold, we don't care about.     
These fields of gold, we don't care about anymore. Not anymore.

Fields of gold, don't care about. Fields of gold, don't care about anymore.

 

Little Fish

Little fish you swim so slow, down the ocean, way below where the waves grow.
Mmh, where the waves grow.  
Tired old birdy in the sky, watch the big world rushing by, what a mean world.
Oeh what a mean world.

And there'll be no time to waste, and there'll be slow signs of hate.
And there'll be no time to waste. World in disgrace.

Little queen you swing so high, horny peasants watch you fly on the dance floor.
Up on the dance floor.     
This ain't the way we will go, when the cold wind blows and blows till we fade out.
Yeah, till we fade out.

And there'll be no signs of hate, and there'll be great times to waste. 
And there'll be slow signs of praise. Fight for that case, in times of dismay.

Feel the sun.
Feel the sun.

 

Oblivion

How could you come to be the last girl.
Standing in the row, when the flowerbeds are sold.
She was morning dew, she was born in June, when springtime works the sky.
She was on the wildest side.

Be what you are, and let me
Be what you are, never save that smile.
You're almost steady, proceed and slowly rise.

How could you come to be that nutty, stone cold.
We were so damn tired, all night.
Sleep in the belly, of a princes horse in town.
You're confused but still you know.
It's just illusions in the line of time.

Hold me tonight, what you need must be grabbed.
If you can, twist the coin, say what you're up to.
And you may find, springs of joy.

We know where we are (3x)

Oblivion, past the point we know.
Mmh, such a pity now, train is long since gone.
All you're depending on, blown to kingdom come.
Mmh, such a pity now, thrill is long since gone.

Go get it!!

 

Wear my coat

It's my game, lingers on. My gain nearly gone.
I keep dreaming on, searching down the line.
Life keeps streaming on, lost my grip, can't belief she said.

You can wear my coat, wear my hat.

In my days, I've learned to fall. Like new babies learn to crawl.
I keep craving on, I keep searching down the line.
Life keeps streaming on, the cold came in, I can't belief she said.

You can wear my coat, wear my hat.
Wear my coat, wear my hat.

And the night falls in, we are on the run for freedom, somewhere up ahead.
Swing me home tonight, bring it on tonight, take it as it comes,
Take me as I come, I won't burn up here in this place.

Wear my coat, wear my hat. Wear my coat were my hat.
Words can bring you down, only words can bring you down.
Somewhere in a basement, out and incomplete, words can bring you down.
I'm okay.

 

Stay the same

Baby could you come, honey could you come to call my name, right away.
Even in my darkest hours your face delighted me, still remains.
Only lies came in between, no more flies upon my screen, washed away.

Lately all the scars inside have died, all numb to me, feel okay.
Baby, no more grieves, never gonna leave the child in me, stays the same.
Only time lies in between, where I am and I could have been, all the same.

I meant well, all the same, I meant well.

Decided not to crawl on my naked knees.
Decided not to flow on the mainstream breeze.
Decided not to count on a thing called greed.

Stay the same, stay the same.

 

Bridge to the world

Every artist feels the power, in a blooming world of paint.
Beautiful ocean, no concessions, no constraint.
Every kingdom knows its cowards, every poet is a thief.
Stealing words to fill the hours, some with laughter, some with grief.

Find me a fine bit, of faithful consult.
Find me the tiniest, bridge to the world, bridge to the world.

Any hero needs ambition, to become a graceful lad.
Beautiful stranger, trace of death.

As the slums are taking over, there ain't nothing left but fear.
Thousand doors to kick in, for the cynics to be cleared.

Find me, a fine bit, hidden deep inside.
Find me, the tiniest, bridge to the world, bridge to the world.

While the candle is burning, I'm doing the best I can.
I'm doing the best I can.

 

Build me a House

Build me a house, of strength and fortune.
Build me a house, of strength and love.

Oh, life leads through pastures of fear.
I'll finally meet you there.

Build me a house, on stranded fortune.
Build me a house, on stranded love.

And it might just take, thousands of years.
To fight feelings unclear.
My guard won't let you in.
I've tried again and again.
Hold back by punches of fear, fear.

Build me a house on stranded fortune.
Build me a house on stranded love.

Build me a house on stranded fortune.
Build me a house on stranded love.

 

I'm a Dinosaur

I'm a dinosaur, waiting out for you.
I'm a dinosaur, waiting out for you.
In my fine resort, far away from truth.
In my fine resort, far away from you.

Where's the happy child, the one we always knew.
Where's the laughing one, happiness and youth.

I'm a firefly, flying home to you  (fly on mighty firefly)
Like a firefly, rushing my way through.
And I don't know why, couldn't find a clue. (fly on mighty firefly)
And I don't know why, far away from you.

Where's the happy child, the one we always knew.
Where's the laughing one, happiness and youth.

tu, tu, tu, tu, tu, tu, tu, tu, tu, tu  (fly on mighty firefly)

Oh, hi there mighty mister dinosaur.
Could you show me the way to ethernal happiness.
It's been a long way down the road of sadness. 

 

Lonesome Highway

Got my baby on the bedside on a saturday night, she drives me crazy.
You know she's crying cause she's worried 'bout the way we combine.
Indulging baby.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, lonesome highway.

Swear there ain't nobody willing to become what we are,not even maybe.
Unless you wanna be the memory in the back of my mind.
Don't try to save me, tonight.

Souls mighty road, on the run, where to go?
Souls mighty road, of life.

Left my baby at the highway on that saturday night, she drove me crazy.
Guess she couldn't tell the cover from the book of my mind, my sweet baby.
Now if you ever meet that woman, don't go blind on her side.
She might just break you.
Gotta search a little further, and you might see the light.
Won't need her fake ways, each time.

Souls mighty road, on the run, where to go?
Souls mighty road, of life, tonight.

If there'll be no other way, there'll be no other way.
When there's nothing left to say, it's time for my way out.
Yeah, I'm out of here baby, alright, yeah.

Seven days on the run, is

Yes, we were heading out, over to Mexico, you know.
Got in trouble with ourselves, we ended up in fight.

Isn't it enough for a man.
(It's just enough to go crazy) See what I mean.

Long for your face, to fade out,
Long for your stone cold face to fade out.

Lonesome highway, lonesome highway, lonesome highway

 

Like a drifter I was born

Like a drifter I was born, like a shining torch will burn to fade out.
Feel the crushing days of old, leave the winds and rain to carve the shapes out.
We can barely understand we can barely understand.

Come on out when evening falls, rest you weary head, inhale the soft sounds.
Of the fighters fear the morn, another bloodshed day on Charlie's playground.
We can barely understand, we can barely understand.

Old guitar, shooting star, beating heart, a stone of lost religion.
Old man's heart, fell apart, couldn't beat the beast of lost ambition.
We can barely understand, we can barely understand.

 

Shattered nations

Station, still the signs of deprivations.
Jews and Gypsies, deportation.
I grieve for those.

Selection, once the keyword to protection.
Hide away before they get you.
I feel for those.

Shattered nations, revelations.
Separation, I'll bleed for those.

The playground, smiling children in the first snow.
Why does granddad let his tears flow, can't let go

Shattered nations, revelations.
Condemnation, I'll bleed for those
Who were stationed, suffered violations
Separation, I'll bleed for those
