ORDINARY LIFE

Here I am again,always ready 9 to 5 and junk food at lunch I speak French and Deutch My secretary she obeys Just at my commands So sometimes I can touch her hand

Don't disturb me I'm living my ordinary Don't disturb me I'm living my Ordinary Life

Microwave weekends Traffic-izing Me my wife the dog and the kids Fishing mud,old shoes and green pois condoms We end the day by watching T.V And that's when I can fall asleep

Don't disturb me I'm living my ordinary Don't disturb me I'm living my Ordinary Life

And in my dream I see that snake again The bitten apple falling And then the water growth from the river bend Do I remember how it ends ?

Don't disturb me I'm living my ordinary Don't disturb me I'm living my Ordinary Life

 

COINCIDENCE

Supermarket scene today Organising diners for another week Little housewife on the way Talking to the man there About the roof that leaks

Could be Coincidence But I think I saw your face Without distinctions I accelerate Was it Coincidence ? Here I wonder as I pay And announce another celebration day

Sherlock Holmes is what I am I follow you and you still haven't noticed me Through the streets and traffic jams I remember moments Of sheer ecstasy

Could be Coincidence Now I'll never let you go This sad experience we'll drown below Was it Coincidence ? Now I wonder as I say And announce another celebration day

Then I see your face As you get in your car Imagination took me much too far

Could be Coincidence Now that I have seen your face Without distinctions I accelerate It was Coincidence No more wonder as I run And announce another celebration done Could be Coincidence Now that I have seen your face Without distinctions I accelerate

 

GOD BLESS THE MOONSHADE

Stepping on the stage Looking at the crowd, the endless sea Now who is in the cage Between you and me ? Love, love is on your side Growing, healing, breathing with the tide

God bless the water, washing all our dirt God bless the fire, mending all my hurts God bless the sunlight, bringing in the day God bless the moonshade The moonshade for hiding away The moonshade for hiding away

Walk on narrow lines Some day you are bound to fall Torturing your mind On aims you don't know at all Life, life is on your side Living, struggling ,dying like the tide

God bless the children The happiness they bring God bless old people The wisdom they can sing God bless the sunlight Bringing in the day God bless the moonshade The moonshade for hiding away The moonshade for hiding away

God bless the Zoo Park To make us taste the cage God bless the New York ants Living free with rage God bless my Walkman Electronic Discipline

God bless tradition To show me what I've been God bless the idiots Who laugh at us insane

God bless the science Relieving us from pain God bless the sunlight Bringing in the day

God bless the moonshade The moonshade for hiding away The moonshade for hiding away

 

RAIN ON ALEXANDERPLATZ

Crazy little girl you'll dream on forever To leave this town for a western Mecca Crazy little girl in love with the D.J Cause he has some tapes and some five o ones David Bowie sings just a mile away from here While the silent crowd gathers to the wall with fear

Crazy little girl you don't hide your sorrow You dress in black and you dye your hair blue Crazy little girl your hopes are so shallow Always smiling back to those who smile at you Now the music echoes right across the border And it suffocates all the yells of hope and hate

There's rain on Alexanderplatz

Crazy little girl it's now or it's never Don't waste your time let it be your secret Crazy little girl in all this disorder You can cross the hole and run away But never turn your back every step might be your last You can concentrate on the striking of the brass

There's rain on Alexanderplatz

Don't give up ! In the name of freedom Don't give up,don't give up my friend In the name of liberty

There's rain on Alexanderplatz

 

BLINDFOLD

Hey where do you belong my friend ? Don't you see that time Has pinned you to the wall my friend Your images of youth are left behind And the window scenery change Can make you blind

Blindfold and wrapped Living in a cradle of naught Blindfold and trapped Growing up with the stories been told Do you really care ?

Hey where do you come from my friend ? A distant cultured land Where horizon's in the sun my friend Where realities of war are always there And the photo of your girl Is worn from stare

On the T.V news all we see are pointed colours Do we realise that we are all Blindfold ?

Blindfold and wrapped Living in a cradle of naught Blindfold and trapped Growing up with the stories been told Do you really care of other people's life ?

But do we really care of other people's strife ?

 

ALICE IN WONDERLAND

Take away this broken heart Broken metronome you tore apart Tick-Tacking through my memories or fantasies You're the rhythm of my fears I wish I had you Take away this bleeding hand Bleeding thorns I brought from No man's land Colouring my empty life of redder shades In my foolish dreams that fade I wish I had you cause you're

Alice in Wonderland Dancing away in slow motion Alice in Wonderland Fooling away with time Cause you live in between the rhyme Of my rainbow tales

Take away this old man there Put him in a place where he won't scare Poor innocent passers-by His wrinkled face Has lived through thousand fairy tales He knows all of you cause you're

Alice in Wonderland Dancing away in slow motion Alice in Wonderland Fooling away with time Cause you live in between the rhyme Of my rainbow tales

Will I remember your face ? And in the morning Will I remember your smile ? Through out the fantasy September rain is here and all I know Is that you're gone now

Alice in Wonderland Dancing away in slow motion Alice in Wonderland Fooling away with time Cause you live in between the rhyme Of my rainbow tales

 

1997

Wake up ! Wake up ! You've got to run away Get up ! Get up ! Cause the troops are back again Wake up ! Wake up ! Don't ever loose your faith Get up ! Get up ! You've got to fight for some beleif

Clever Conversation 1997 Topic in the nation 1997

Wake up ! Wake up ! Thousand miles to go Get up ! Get up ! Will tomorrow ever show ? Wake up ! Wake up ! Go and grab your gun Get up ! Get up ! Save you life cause the battle has begun

Clever Conversation 1997 Topic in the nation 1997

Well I'm Sergeant Smith and I'm six feet eight I can kill a bull with just my weight Give me a soldier I can train And I'll bet the guy will learn the game I'm Captain Timo Y.A.L.E graduate I can teach strategics and computer tricks Give me a soldier to refine And I'll bet the guy will be Einstein ! Clever Conversation 1997 Topic in the nation 1997

When the troops were proceeding, they were not aware of what was going on. Somehow the red glare in the horizon did not affect their thoughts. The eternal dirty rain washed their footsteps away and the unreal sounds of machine guns, bombs and screaming pain was their music. The music of 1999

 

 

ALCOHOLIDAY

Holiday ! I need an Alcoholiday Holiday ! Another Alcoholiday

Welcome in your kingdom through the main door It's worth a celebration Torture will be led down like in the old tradition Welcome in my life again like you did before I've been waiting for you Sitting here on your laps in a fantasy whirl I can sip a drop of ...

Holiday ! I need an Alcoholiday Holiday ! Another Alcoholiday Cause my lady said I drank too much Now I drink too much to forget her

Welcome in my sight again through the main door I've been searching for you I love you, I hate you, I don't know anymore Let me drip in some more

Holiday ! I need an Alcoholiday Holiday ! Another Alcoholiday

 

GOT TO BELIEVE

Talk about unemployment Figure out some alternative solution For the strikes and demonstrations Who cares if you can't stop the nation

Hear Africa calling Some there they just die of simple malnutrition While you sit here playing With the world on a chess board Cheating on other people's lives Is it wrong or right ?

Got to believe in something Make believe Got to believe in something

Cities and pollution Animals that we'll just see in encyclopedias While you stand there staring At some ad in a tube train running You walk home alone Is it right or wrong ?

Got to believe in something Make believe Got to believe in something

 

TYCOON

City night is cold and people hide their face Cinderella is home by the fireplace White snow has painted the streets Young lovers hug in warm sheets

City nights are great when you have to hide In the lack of witness or alibis Where are you from ? Will you ever stop ?

Tycoon or Beggar Here you'll have to share the shelter This house with the sun in the sky Tycoon or Beggar You will have to search together Reflections of light in you eyes

Another drop of blood in this light blue world Easy ladies leaning on lighting poles Just Cigarettes,booze and crimes Lovers just for some dimes Where are you gone ? Will you ever stop ?

Tycoon or Beggar Here you'll have to share the shelter This house with the sun in the sky Tycoon or Beggar You will have to search together Reflections of light in you eyes
