Track Name: Hello!
I just came by to say hi
It feels good to be back

Hello
(Sorry to keep you waiting)
Hello
(Can I get you anything?)

I'm not here to tell you what to do
I was bored and now I'm playing for you

Hello

Don't have the illusion
It matters what you say
Few are really listening
anyway

Hello
(Sorry to keep you waiting)
Hello
(Can I get you anything?)

I'm not here to tell you what to do
I was bored and now I'm playing for you

Hello
Track Name: Abandonment (You Can Leave Now)
the train is leaving
the signs are clear
you don't have time
to stay here

this monkey
needs to learn some tricks
you need a solution
you need a fix

do you remember
never forget
when everything was better
the dreams you once had

where do you want to go

you can leave now
or stay and finish
what you've started
Track Name: Give Me Your Love
Forests full of trees
Beaches full of sand
All the water in the sea
Can't express how I feel

Give me back your Love
Give me back your Love
Give me your love

Broken leaves in a sunset bar
Ash in a forgotten jar

Give me back your Love
Give me back your Love
Give me your love
Track Name: Serenity
in the eye of the storm
to tired to fight
seeking composure
so much to hide

accept the situation
with good grace
close your eyes
put on a brave face

serenity

floating around
nowhere to go
seek the light
ignore the dark hole

serenity

ecstasy, joy
acceptance, at ease
quiet, calmness, optimism
love and peace

serenity

I don't care
I'm still free
They can't take
The sky from me
Track Name: Michael Penn
quality music is hard to find
so much talent is wasted
record companies are on their way down
hail the man wearing Euterpe's crown

he's the man
Michael Penn
I am a big fan
he is Aimee's Man
his name is Penn

escaping the LA mould
the Hydra monster to unfold
marrying a kindred spirit
she is nice but he's in it

he's the man
Michael Penn
I am a big fan
he may not be
the prince of men
but we know
his name is Penn

he's the man
Michael Penn
I am a big fan
he's doing what he can
his name is Penn
his name is Penn

try to remember if you can
his name is Penn
Track Name: A Reason To Survive
show me a picture
show me a movie
show me everything you've got
give me a reason
give me a line to survive

convince me
of your nature
live is cheeper than death
give me a reason
give me a sign to survive

get me out of this cave
get me into your life
give me a reason to live
a reason to survive

and when i close my eyes
nothing is real
dreams of a peaceful time
nothing to feel
Track Name: Running
Speed is of the essence
Never lose time
Time is money
And money feels so fine

Meetings here and there
Goals to fulfill
Bucket lists
Seeking cheap thrills

Always running
Always running

One day you'll be standing still / so tired
You cannot move anymore
Looking back
Was it worth it all?
Track Name: Politicians Ruining The World
Battle here, battle there
One war or more, I don't care
Genocide is a common word
Ethnic cleansing all I heard

I don't care about politicians ... ruining the world

You can protest all you want
Money & power rules the world
You can pray all you want
It won't change a thing I'm afraid

I don't care about politicians ... ruining the world
Track Name: I Couldn't Care Less
here we have another war
or a crises near or far
oh what a mess
what a great success

I know I know
life is unfair
it’s not that I’m lazy
I just don’t care

I don't care
I don't care
I don't care
I don't care

I'm in the middle of the rest of my life
no house no car no kids no wife

I couldn’t care less
I couldn’t care less
I couldn’t care less
I couldn’t care less
Track Name: Kaiju
Kaiju (怪獣) - Monster
Sanpuru Kyoku (サンプル曲) - Monster Music
Kaiju (怪獣) - Monster
Track Name: Follow Your Intuition
too many choices
fighting in your head
hearing all these voices
drives you sad

afraid to feel low
on a sunny day
when you want to grow
you'll need some rain

follow your intuition
follow your intuition
take a decision
follow your intuition

follow your intuition
follow your intuition
here is your new mission
follow your intuition
Track Name: Slow Disintigration Of The Heart
the plants on my window sill
don't greet me when i come home
no great tasks to fulfill
life is one long dial tone
a slow disintegration of the heart

I'm a speaker not a talker
i don't run, I'm a walker
But are we standing still

planes go up and planes come down
you never know who'll be around
in your final moments
this is what life has in stock
a slow disintegration of the heart

I'm a speaker not a talker
i don't run, I'm a walker
But are we standing still

when you think
you can't hide who you are
