Track Name: Human
lowered head, struggling through the crowd
apathy – the focus on something that’s too far away
the people surround him: approach distance
it’s not the cold that blushed their heads: shame
to meditate brings barriers and blackouts
and yet he needs help. no other way
but please no compassionate treatment

the gap to them is arranged by you
suppressed, overwhelmed and lost
«can you understand that they want to be treaded like you?
don’t look down, keep your face!»

wishes to be eye to eye
to interact but not by force
«they look asquint at me
labeled by now
i hope it’s written on the forehead»
miserable humanity

long way to put a puzzle together with all these parts
Track Name: New Day (feat. Rahel Breitschmid)
sight down to earth.
a trance, a regularity of the feed
back and forth,
scattered thoughts are crushing the mind
announcements drilling his ears
to keep calm is getting difficult
«where’s the fucking switch to turn it off?»

always searching for a solution
a voice from the far side
might be the wrong time
to let it come across of an unknown
it’s ok to accept help from another
sometimes foreign advices brings manifestation

stand the pace

so please go home, make an effort, have a rest

a voice from the far side
might be the wrong time
to let it come across of an unknown
it’s ok to accept help from another
sometimes foreign advices brings manifestation

with the sound of the alarm
he will open his eyes
with the rays of the sun
he can leave it behind
he can admit that sometimes
it’s the best to step back
and give it time
Track Name: Rumours
the social environment
is talking behind his back
the less they struggle
with themselves
the more they stare
the more they cook up a story

but from a distance
truth is far away
no clue what’s going on
rather judging than asking

drama and gossip – a thing you shouldn’t call your hobby
«with the flow of daily life.
we’re getting lazy.
entrenched habits.
that’s what we are
custom that has become law.

»give them stories,
give them waste
it will be accepted with gratitude
it will be soaked up with pleasure

but from the other side
a difference is always reaction
a reaction built up of thoughts
because the thoughts brought along
the bravery to change
the bravery the bravery to ignore

give them stories, give them waste
it will be accepted with gratitude
it will be soaked up with pleasure

give them more
give them what they want.
give, give, give
rumours – give, never take
Track Name: Away
«am i too young?»
he asks himself when all gets harder
some hopeful words from the inner voice stays out
«am i too ingenuous?»
self doubt has always been his first reaction.
no blame to anybody drifting apart.
never seen a beginning,
worried about the end
an ulcer in the stomach.
growing every day,
it’s growing every day

so where will i bring myself?
attention! attention!
always be on guard
everybody knows best. hell no

if you face the light, your shadow falls behind and the own path
will be clear. if you won’t, you’ll be hunted by yourself
turn back – see the shadow of your former self

hate himself:anger toward others
not you or you. just the «others»
it’s like a dusty cloud of faults,
where nothing is clear
«never really listen to myself,
now it’s time to witness»

so where will i i bring myself?
attention! attention!
always be on guard
everybody knows bests.
hell no!
Track Name: Hopeful Eyes
craving for sensation
disregard an old wish
face yourself

the eyes getting dry
a drop of water on the chin
the haze evaporates in the sky
transient like a lot of things
and as he follows his breath
he gets a feeling he yearned for

«will i pursue this way?
will i ever turn?»
starring into the sea,
starring into this mirror

be honest with yourself
point of no return
starring into the sea,
starring into this mirror

just himself array the past,
arrange the future,
lock these chapters

take five minutes for yourself every now and then

hopeful eyes – hopeful lies
Track Name: Third Voice (feat. Serge Liefert & Christian Eckerlein)
he arrived at the place
that he called home once
the furniture never moved
bad air caught
behind these long closed doors
the rays painting figures on the wall
after the dust is mixed up in the room
he is focused on the picture on the wall
he is lost in the own past

throwback to days
when he used to look up to his parents
when everything was given and safe
retraction was easy

being changed by surprise:
a new course to go
something new, something different
something against his odds tells him:

this constant isolation
changing doubt until it seems like it’s right
nobody should suffer my problems
i don’t need help
nobody should suffer my problems,
i am not devastated. i don’t need help

there is no escape.
life is not always perfect.
hark back and realize what you have.
what you have accomplished with them.
god damn it,
share your faults
work it out together.
from day to day
inclusion is a sign of trust,
not a sign of weakness

maybe you had to run away – look at it from a distance

being changed by surprise:
a new course to go
something new, something different
something against his odds tells him:

but now i want to go home
but now it’s time to go back
Track Name: Mono No Aware
overflown with little lies
made up – fucked up
perfection of it
makes him suspicious
day in day out
everybody is running from a to b
from here to there
the sad thing about this is the fact that they walk aimlessly

a run away – a circle – a drowning hand from behind
too slow to notice
and when all this is going on,
comparisons to the others will be drawn

so he pulls himself back
stress step back
trying to keep those moments
dissolve like sand in the hands
daily grind edges him away from the center

«how will i keep my memories? foreseen tragedy»
those lines he read, they will fade away
this picture he’s holding in his hand,
he dreams away

the ones who predict darkened days
are the ones who have lost their selves
and he learned that some turned away
before the glamorous fall

so he pulls himself back
stress step back
trying to keep those moments
dissolve like sand in the hands

unmasked unwillingly by mother truth
Track Name: Distant Closeness
fostering sentences:
«i always told you,
i always told you he’s too young!»

«applause, applause for your never ending support
for your wise, positive words» she thinks

deafening silence

the well known voice
in on the radio
brings him back to reality
«where am i» he muses
seconds later he got
through the last couple days
«what have i done» –
shocked by himself
surprised by his own bravery
a bit proud of it

time to doubt yourself
for too long he tried to please everybody
always giving 100 percent
«maybe i expected too much»

this emptiness: not everybody likes it
this loneliness: not everybody enjoys it
somewhere between freedom
and thinking about heading home
always yearning for her
when she is not here

«will someone live for nothing?
is it even human
to expect anything?
will someone live for nothing?»

time to doubt yourself
for too long he tried to please everybody
always giving 100 percent
«maybe i expected too much»

the need to break out of this society not from his family
this small path between not changing and improving yourself

«improve yourself»
Track Name: Circles
there is something,
the insecurity,
the unexpected end
brought by the unknown
judging a relapsing circumstance
it’s a bliss, an injustice.

brought by yourself – impartiality
with every new role
with every new experience
people manage their matters
some lose respect
doing it more reckless
good old tradition versus progression
the save way versus the cutoff
the cutoff that emphasises itself as a detour
the bravery to walk along

this patch of trial and tribulation
those who stands still
will be overtaken
those who run will fall

searching for the average – don’t be
searching for the average – don’t be
don’t be average

consider everything from scratch
consider everything for yourself
fear and sloth – falling into a trap
never adopt this treacherous voice
start the search at yourself
all perspectives need to be seen
and end it at the same place
only this way you have 360 degrees
Track Name: Gone In Fear
quest for more every day
did he ever have the right to choose?
when she found the letter on the kitchen table
written with a shaky hand
hers getting cold

after a touch of stagnation
she is back in reality
toing and froing – stay and go.
but there is the feeling not to interact

mingled with angst
«will he ever come back?»
it seems that like the walls are collapsing
suffering pain will bring her closer to herself
let her rethink this whole story

when they realized that he is gone
the rumours started over again
some call him coward
never really knew why

the only one whose who’s allowed to judge is she
the surroundings are spinning – on going
but she: calm, prepared
may be suspected, may be expected
the mockery is not far away

the only one whose who’s allowed to judge is she
may be suspected, may be expected
Track Name: Return To Be
carved into the table a luck –
it’s wiped out in seconds

sounds scary but someone like me
needs those lonely nights
i learned to face the facts
thoughts still whirr through his mind
where the wish to move out and move on
was his biggest burden

this place will always be that home
this these members will always be that family
nothing was perfect in the beginning
neither is anybody perfect
all this needs to be work for us
not for anybody else

sitting in the living room
kids never suspected his break
the moment where no words are needed
maybe can’t be described
and as he opens up to her
the solution seems not far away

he didn’t expect what she said:
«look at me
look at me to fix everything alone
will bring you to that point a second time, i promise
look at me to fix everything alone
will bring you to that point a second time, i promise
you can’t doubt yourself about everything
both of us have to work on us
there will be days you will hear the words you like
there will be days you will hear the words you feared
there will be days you will not agree with me
there will be days we will move on as one“
