Madness

too much, too fast maybe
I don’t know where my destiny’s taking me
so I’ll go wherever it leads me
too high, too low baby
I wanna know where my destiny’s taking me
so I’ll go to make you believe me

cry, cry when there’s something to cry about
cry, cry baby but don’t drown in sadness
it’s madness
don’t ask me to explain
don’t take away the pain
it’s impossible
to save me
it’s madness

too cheap, too scary
too creepy to marry
too serious, too mysterious and way too deep

crack in the shield, feels so unreal
no one to blame for losing the flame
crack in the shield
lost in the fields of sadness

Bullet

I think I should go and leave you alone, yeah
stop this game and hang up the phone, and more
I should go into the night alone and get inside of the cyclone
it’s like I wanted to break my bones to get over you
‘cos if I stay I’m number two anyway

like a bullet you can hurt me, take me, break me
like fire you can burn me, convert me
like a bullet you can hurt me

you say there are so many things going on in your life now
it’s so very hard to find time for me
and you say, do you believe in the destiny?
this is the way it was meant to be
I gotta leave you to make you see
I’m over you
‘cos if I stay I’m number two anyway

I can’t believe it when my friends say
take it easy, don’t you worry about the rainy days
like fire you can burn me, convert me
like a bullet you can hurt me

maybe I’m blind
forever young
don’t get me wrong
I don’t belong here
like a fire you can burn me
like a bullet you can hurt me

Chill

I gotta make a phone call to my best friends
I gotta let them know that I’m leaving
everything behind me and politely I don’t wanna hurt their feelings
oh no
I’ll need to come back and I wanna explain why I had to leave them sleeping
the answer’s in the air but I really don’t care ‘cos I couldn’t really keep on breathing the smoke

and every time when I painted my room
like a fool I hid my feelings
and every time when I painted my room
I thought about leaving

you roll like a stone girl, you should not stop
and I don’t wanna step on your feet
and you do what you do to stay on top
and I don’t wanna make you feel incomplete

at the end of the day
I don’t know what to say
at the end of the day
I’ll be flying away

F-F-F-Falling

I don’t go school every monday
I’ve got my reason to sleep
don’t you tell me how I should be
I made up my mind about the music
I made up my mind about the style
I know that I’m stable and able to settle down
but I keep

f-f-f-falling
down with the sun
I can’t give it up the night is calling me like a drum
I keep on f-f-f-falling

this life is so full of temptation and I want to keep it that way
I know myself I can handle the game
I made up my mind about the future
I made up my mind about the past
I know that I’m stable and able to hold on

falling
I need a flame, I need a spark
don’t be afraid to open my heart
I need a game, I need a shock
don’t be afraid my heart is unlocked

Heartbreaker

well anyway it’s a long story
she’s been waiting for so long
still got the songs in her mind and the autograph on the photograph
she’s got a past full of secrets
she’s got a clock on her feelings
back from the days when she used to have wings
she had a dream full of anger
she had a dream full of action
afraid to get old she feels so cold
such a typical reaction

oh yeah, oh yeah
she wanted to be a heartbreaker
oh yeah, she was so greedy but lousy lovemaker
oh yeah, oh yeah
she wanted to be a heartbreaker

she used to be a queen of the scene
she had a key but she lost it
nothing’s gonna last and the time goes fast – she knows
she had a man but she messed it up again
she had a chance but she blew it
she’s gotta little babyboy in her womb,
but she doesn’t have a clue yet, she doesn’t have a clue yet

striking her down. Crushing her to the ground

Smash

understand that you’re holding a bomb in your hands
take control
hand in hand with your self from now on
take this advice aim to the skies above
aim to the skies above

show me what you’re made of
I’m waiting for the answer
tell me what you’re afraid of
show me what you’re made of

I call out in my sleep
I can’t reach you and it’s killing me
I call out in my sleep

the sun is gone
days go on like a storm in the sea
and the shore is the lonelinest place you can be
stay dry instead
a moment ahead
aim to the skies above

you say that you’re not the same kid
the one who used to be the weeper
you say it’s something deeper
something that you couldn’t tame
something that would wake the sleeper
you say

Someone Else

she drinks the blood of the dinosaurs
to get her powers back to make her boyfriend understand
that things are not what they used to be
she doesn’t have a plan to make her boyfriend understand
through the gates of insanity on the edge of humanity
she’s gonna make her dreams come true
that she belongs to someone else

she’s found something to die for
something to fight for
someone to show her the way
she’s found someone to cry for, someone to lie for
heart full of blood of the dinosaurs
now she belongs to someone else

Small Town

you get no kick out of champagne
things make you sick by staying the same
so lame
and if you think that you know everybody
and if it seems inspiration is gone
days when it feels like nothing can turn you on

open your eyes to the life in this small town
how many times you’ve been leaving?
oh yeah
and so it seems we keep coming back home
so open your eyes to the life in this small town

I’ve always run straight to the flames
I’ve lost my face in a thousand ways
oh yeah
still you give a damn about my reputation
take me as I am
you are my family
if you get lonely you know where you will find me

and there is no way out
if you don’t wanna talk about it
if you don’t wanna turn around
I wanna have confidence in you

One & Only

have I been away too long?
did I miss all the action?
what happened to the neighbourgs and the girl next door?
did you get my greetings?
what happened to the graffiti?
and what about this crap on the walls?
did I forget about someone?
no offense but I have to
I didn’t have a respect for the violence
and what about this music?
did I forget something else?
when I left the silence
don’t let the shadows reach me
don’t let the shadows swallow the light while I’m sleeping
whatever comes to your mind just hit me
it’s my time
my time
the one and only lonely

did I win the firt prize?
have I crossed the enemylines?
got stabbed in the back but I don’t know why
like walking on the eggshells
stepping over landmines
waiting for the open sky
did you forget about something?
did you forget about you and me?
and what about this envy around me?
did I do something wrong?
have I been away too long?
in middle of these changes

Last Waltz

make me blind
cover my eyes
you can do what you want
I’m paralyzed by the perfect mood we’re dancing whit blindfolds on
you make it easy to love you and hate you
I can’t explain it I feel insecure
you say it’s simple: “You die just to live again”
you say we’re waiting for the waltz

another you and me
another revolutionary heavenly romance
waitin’ for the last waltz
and so it seems
we won’t find the solution
confusion leads the dance
we’re waiting for the last waltz

praise the wine
so divine
and it stinks like a rose
allow the night to flow inside
open the window and let wind blow
highlight of the night is the unhappy ending
you keep refusing to answer my calls
drop the bending and stop the pretending

you say…get ready for the last waltz
I believe that no one in this world has the answers for me
but still I hope that someone has heard
