Track Name: Dauntless Rebels
There’s nothing left to keep me clear.
I leave this town, get out of here.
A bunch of shirts and my guitar,
some drugs to ease the aching scars.

So, i raise my hand to thumb a ride, jump on a truck and say good bye.
So, i raise my hand to thumb a ride, jump on a truck and say good bye.

The world seems smaller from a barstool’s sight.
The stairs get taller, so i spend every night
Walking through the streets i know - In my mind. life is good.
The life i lived was an awful ride.
Let’s put some truth right between the lies.
I’m walking through the streets i know – in my mind. Life is good.

I won’t pay this drink. Wanna do high fives with the devil.
The saints are drunk again. Drunken saints are dauntless rebels.

The curtains fall, i’m soaking wet.
I’m blinded by a pearl of sweat.
A stumbling walk to reach the door, im dying for some h2o.
I need salvation – don’t know how.
I swear, i hate this crowd right now.
I hate you guys for showing me: i’m still alive, i still can bleed

I won’t pay this drink. Wanna do high fives with the devil.
The saints are drunk again. Drunken saints are dauntless rebels.
Track Name: Exploding colors on concrete
You carried a box of crayons and wore a flattering summer dress,
You rang my bell to call me out and my heart burst in my chest.
I really shouldn’t fall for any girl around,
But your paintings on the driveway made me feel so safe and sound.

Crayon hearts, you scribbled on the streets.

There was a blooming flower. Exploding colors on concrete.
I think of it on darker days and my thoughts turn in my head.
I really shouldn’t fall for any girl around,
But your paintings on the driveway made me feel so safe and sound.

Crayon hearts, you scribbled on the streets.
Track Name: All the king's horses
Woke up this morning in the bathtub that i used to call my bed the last six days in a row
I’m wondering how you spend your night though i hope you think i don’t think about you anymore at all
But everything i think about is you. Everything i think about is you and me

It feels like everything is broken
I’m longing for some superglue
I still know every word we’ve spoken
But i don’t know how to get back to you

I picked you up at the trainstation and now it aches to think of you
Could have been worse but i do miss you and here’s the lesson that i learned
I aint perfect – you aint either. Let’s face the fact that we’re no good
You go to heaven, I’m the devil – fobidden love’s the sweetest one

It feels like everything is broken
I’m longing for some superglue
I still know every word we’ve spoken
But i don’t know how to get back to you

Here’s my hand i wont let go but i’m still the person that makes you sick

It feels like everything is broken
I’m longing for some superglue
I still know every word we’ve spoken
But i don’t know how to get back to you
Track Name: Wir bleiben hier!
When everything seemed grey and odd you teased me with your blooming charm
The world seemed better than it was before
You led me through a magic garden where time and breath stood still
I hope you’ll always remember this night – i promise that i will

So pour some juice into that glas and add some liquor baby
Tonight we’re going out of style – tomorrow is still far away
Turn that music a little louder – let’s sing until our voices are gone
Set this tree on fire

The sun was slowly coming up and the shadows became thinner
The birds began to sing their songs „wir bleiben hier für immer“
But in the morning the ember’s cold and the music’s simply gone
I packed my stuff into the van and i knew i must go on

So pour some juice in one last glas and the same amount of liquor
Just leave the bottle here with us ‚cause the morning will be bitter
Let’s dance as long as we can stay – the fireplace’s our home
I’m simply lost for words – you had me at hello
Track Name: We're going nowhere, we're just going
Smoke fills the van and I try to see with bloodshot eyes
Just don’t fall asleep
Steering the pack right through the night
No cars on the road
Just staring into the dark

Mile by mile
I feel weaker inside

I never thought that I could feel so god damn safe so far away from home
And I will always think of those times when I'm home alone

These things won't go away even though I know that this life is the death of me
But there is nothing closer to being free than the lives that we lead

Mile by mile
I feel weaker inside

I never thought that I could feel so god damn safe so far from home
And I will always think of those times, when I'm home alone
Seeing people scream the words you wrote down on an old bill
Is worth sleeping on a damn cold floor
Track Name: This sucker is nuclear!
This sucker is nuclear!


A quarter of a century old, but she made him feel like 8
Like when he turned his back on his own flesh to lose the weight
He saw his mother crying, with a razor in her veins
The pictures flashed back in his head, when they separated ways
He sat and listened to the silence, that was reigning in his flat
she made him desperate but somehow he got to think about his dad
He said: 'My son, there are plenty more – you know, like fishes in the sea
but some of them are poisoned. Better watch out, before you eat!'

Lizzy’s got a time machine! Jump on, enjoy the ride
It might not take you very far – but imagine all the sights
Every mistake you ever made is lit up by the lights
You better start building up mills, when the wind of change blows by

Long story short is that he lost his mind and he didn’t search for light
isolated himself in the songs he used to like
But as the pencil scratched across the paper and the cellphone started to ring
he found out every ending leads you back to the beginning

Lizzy’s got a time machine! Jump on, enjoy the ride
It might not take you very far – but imagine all the sights
Every mistake you ever made is spotted by the lights
You better start building up mills, when the wind of change blows by
Track Name: Love is where you find it
She works hard to clean the sheets
She worked hard to raise the boys she's been left with
Another shift full of emptiness
It ain't fun to sell the body you're struggling with
But all these men they come and go
And all these nights she pretends that she doesn’t care at all

All day long she lies in her bed and cries innocent tears
The boys, they are in school right now so she knows that they wont hear
How she's moaning, how she's swearing, how she's cursing all day long.
'I wouldn't have to sell myself, if these bastards were not born’

She takes pills to kill the pain
She knows everything will end and she will go to hell
This life ain’t heaven and she is no saint
Just a few more years she knows before it all will end.
But all these years will take their tolls
And not a single breath is worth the pain and the efforts

All day long she lies in her bed and cries innocent tears
The boys, they are in school right now so she knows that they wont hear
How she's moaning, how she's swearing, how she's cursing all day long.
'I wouldn’t have to sell myself, if these bastards were not born'
Track Name: Dead Lord
You broke my heart for the last time
I trusted you but every single lie pours salt into my wounds
Please let go
All the sad stories I can't confide
Still longing for this happy end you promised me long times ago
But all these promisses were not real
And every letter in this book was written down in vain
Tell me all your random lies as an apology
I'm no fool and by the way you are dead to me
Tell me all the these random things
'Cause I know they're not real
I'm sorry but you won't get me on my knees
They build up churches - burn bridges down
A golden cross upon their robes should make us feel save and sound.
All you got to do is to believe in all these selfish lies the pope tells you to keep you kneeling.

But all these prophets were not real
And every letter in this book was done in vain
Tell me all your random lies as an apology
I'm no fool and by the way you are dead to me
Tell me all the these random things
I do know they're not real
I'm sorry but you won't get me on my knees

You got me praying last night

But all these prophets are not real
And every letter in this book was done in vain
Spare me all your random lies as an apology
I'm no fool and by the way you are dead to me
Spare me all the these random things
'Cause I know they're not real
I'm sorry but you won't get me on my knees
Track Name: Don't linger // Don't listen
' Stop when red lights flash'
They tell you, they warn you
You feel them whispering behind your back
But kid go ahead
Don't linger, don't listen
There're footsteps that are left just to be stepped

Stay away, Stay away

It's strange how much we've got in common
And the way our paths have crossed
It's like we've always just been longing
For a piece that we had lost
I know that times are getting better
While our bodies are getting wrecked
But waiting felt like forever in my head
