WIND AND RAIN The golden light above you Reminds me of your name Everything is changed now Nothing feels the same In these times of wind and rain Now that I’m on the road again An urgent need to roam I’m drowning in a dark blue sea I can’t find my way back home In these times of wind and rain, it’s driving me insane In these times of wind and rain, I feel a lot of pain The teardrops touching my brains My brains are aching as hell Tell me, why am I abandoned? Good lord please stop this spell In these times of wind and rain, it’s driving me insane All seasons gone only autumn Darkness still on its way Lost in a forest of great despair Heaven tells me to pray In these times of wind and rain, it’s driving me insane In these times of wind and rain, there’s nothing left but pain Nothing feels the same

THE DIFFERENCE Do you know what’s nagging me? We all know how it’s meant to be Open your mind and follow your heart Close your eyes and see who’s inside Tell me what’s the difference about us? I can’t see the difference between us It’s the thread that makes us strong Colour blind is what we should be We all need the other side A cesspool of convictions We all need a guiding light Tell me what’s the difference about us? I can’t see the difference between us It’s the thread that makes us strong Don’t you see it’s getting kind of strange? It seems that we all need to change Love should never be this out of range To live in perfect harmony and make the difference Tell me what’s the difference about us? I can’t see the difference between us It’s the thread that makes us strong

CAN'T WAIT FOR YESTERDAY At the dimming of the day, watching the sun to go down Tears are falling like rain from my eyes I never felt this way before Counting the hours in a long forgotten place The good old fashioned way of living has passed The mirror reflects my long gone version Won’t see the sun rise anymore There are no tomorrows, only farewells Thoughts are clouding my mind There are no tomorrows I can’t wait for yesterday My always blooming tree has lost it’s blossom for good The flying v of birds in the hell red sky The seasons ain’t changing anymore I’ve always hoped they lead to another tomorrow The speed of light resolves in a fading sound The words in my book of life have already been read Won’t see the sun rises anymore There are no tomorrows, only farewells Thoughts are clouding my mind There are no tomorrows I can’t wait for yesterday At the dimming of the day, watching the sun to go down Tears are falling like rain from my eyes But they never reached the ground

SPENDING IT ALL JACK Rolling down the highway in a stolen car Accelerating while smoking a cigar His gorgeous lady is on the lookout in a bar A few more things that leave another scar Approaching the town with his love and his gun When bullets are flying it’s his way of fun Spending the night in this town Spending the night in this town No thoughts of tomorrow, it will come around He’s got the money so let’s paint this town Beg, steal or borrow, it all feels so right Spending it all Jack while the nights are still bright Money doubles as fast as Texas sunshine She brings them fortune, oh she is so fine His slyness and her beauty perfectly appear The first ray of sunlight gives way to his fear He finds that his precious is no longer here In the end he has lost all what’s dear Spending the night in this town Spending the night in this town No thoughts of tomorrow, it will come around He’s got the money so let’s paint this town Beg, steal or borrow, it all feels so right Spending it all Jack while the nights are still bright

TOTALLY TRASHED Went to a late night party, all on my own It might seem a little lonely, friends I have none Found a place at the bar where there might be fun The bartender looked and said: ”another beer, son?” Oooh what a night it was, leaving totally trashed Oooh what a night it was, as my head felt heavily bashed So as the night went on, some laughter and lots of cigarettes Saw a foxy lady, a moment I should regret When this ugly guy came by, and said: ‘Stay off my wife you punk, or I’ll hit you on the head’ Oooh what a night it was, leaving totally trashed Oooh what a night it was, as my head felt heavily bashed It’s the same old rhyme, each and every time Whatever I’ll try, it’s all but a lie Before I go down, there’s a moment of doubt No more mingling with the crowd Staying home would make me proud, so proud I finally went home, longing for my bed Two women in a fight, one of them I just met Thought to be of any help, so I offered my services It was in vain, I ended up surrounded by nurses Oooh Oooh Oooh Oooh

what what what what

a a a a

night night night night

it it it it

was, was, was, was,

leaving totally trashed as my head felt heavily bashed leaving totally trashed as my head felt heavily bashed


FOOL ON THE HILL Day after day, alone on a hill The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still But nobody wants to know him They can see that he’s just a fool And he never gives an answer But the fool on the hill Sees the sun going down And the eyes in his head See the world spinning ‘round Well on the way, head in a cloud The man of a thousand voices talking perfectly loud But nobody ever hear him or the sound he appears to make and he never seems to notice

But the fool on the hill Sees the sun going down And the eyes in his head See the world spinning ‘round And nobody seems to like him they can tell what he wants to do and he never shows his feelings But the fool on the hill Sees the sun going down And the eyes in his head See the world spinning ‘round Ooh, ooh and round See the world spinning round and round

OUT OF CONTROL My good old friend, were have you been? Out of sight ain’t out of mind Did you forget the place or did you lose the time? Sorry for being late, but I just woke up It’s the same old story, another screw up There is a reason for it all, I’ll be better next time Fairness lies in the dusk Can’t give you a reason I’m searching my soul There’s protection within Honesty or treason Am I out of control? All I give is all I posses You take it in without a guess Did you forget the place or did you lose the time? You don’t believe me but I really do care Don’t mean to hurt and I’m aware There is a reason for it all, I’ll be better next time Fairness lies in the dusk Can’t give you a reason I’m searching my soul There’s protection within Honesty or treason Am I out of control?

With the tears in my eyes I see this is all happening to me I’m not saying that I’m always right And I don’t expect you to really understand Did you do it for the money? Did you do it for the show? Did you loose your sense of honour? Can’t you find your way back home? People think that I’m odd And I often feel ridiculed Please respect my way of living And trust your feelings like I do Did you do it for your honey? Did you do it to glow? Did you try to start a war? Can you try to find your way back home? Please tell me how to trust you To make me feel better I will set myself free There’s only one way to be me I can tell you how to trust me So you can feel better You can set yourself free For yourself and not for me

I didn’t come to play Jesus I’m fragile as well I didn’t ask for forgiveness But you know you have to do it all by yourself Did you do it for the money? Did you do it for the show? Did you loose your sense of honour? Can’t you find your way back home? Please tell me how to trust you To make me feel better I will set myself free There’s only one way to be me I can tell you how to trust me So you can feel better You can set yourself free For yourself and not for me

WHEN IT’S ALL GONE Take a look outside and see what we have done How did we ever let the oceans run dry? No one survives when it’s all gone We don’t even care as time passes by I’ve travelled through the years to find it all out I’ve been to a lot of places and seen it all go down There’s no reason to deny that I’m wrong So take a look and feel the heat all around us See how water finds it’s way over land I’m longing for the time before we where born The only thing around us was silence I’ve travelled through time and found it all out I’ve seen a lot of places and people make it all go down There’s no reason to deny that I’m wrong Take a look outside and see what we have done How did we ever let the oceans run dry? No one survives when it’s all gone We don’t even care as time passes by I’ve travelled through the years to find it all out I’ve been to a lot of places and seen it all go down I’ve travelled through time and found it all out I’ve seen a lot of places and people make it all go down There’s no reason to deny that I’m wrong

Don’t want to talk about it One day I’ll come around Always in a rush my brother And now the sun is sinking down I don’t want to talk about it It’s just the way it is I see you getting older brother And it breaks my heart like this You take it so easy You kissed me when I cried But your hands shake like you are freezing And you tell me it’s alright I don’t want to talk about it It’s just the way it is I can see you getting older brother And it breaks my heart like this How many times have you said “I’ll sleep when I’m dead” One day the night will come, come for you We were young when I pushed your head down Ooh, and you nearly died I shook like I was freezing But you told me “It’s alright” And I could never talk about it It’s always been like this You will always be my brother But you break my heart like this You’re the beating of my heart

THE WINDOW OF MY EYES In our land of hope there’s no reason to hide I’m telling you that it lost it’s honour and it’s pride The world diverts, stay on the wire, take a clear stand Don’t let yourself carried away by flattering words Don’t you tell me the enemy don’t need a helping hand Through the window of my eyes I can see a world full of lies Through the window of my eyes Welcome in our paradise Different beliefs aren’t there to hate Don’t let anybody become a victim of the state So come along, don’t distract yourself from love It’s a shame I had to write this song Which sign do we need from above? Through the window of my eyes I’ll tell something which is no surprise Through the window of my eyes Welcome in our paradise, in our world of lies
