Track Name: The Higher You Go
Slave of your memories
Product of your inabilities
That black suit
Will fit you fine

The higher you go
The harder you fall

So you're a small country
Squander other people's money

The higher you go
The harder you fall

Fail
Fail
Track Name: Feel Free (aka Something Is Missing)
All I want is to feel happy
To do what I wanna do
All I want is to feel free
To be who I wanna be

I've got food
I've got shelter
A bed to sleep at night
Still there is
A hole in me
Something is missing
I can't feel free

The cows in the meadows
Dance in the sun
The worm in the ground
Digs holes all around

I've got food
I've got shelter
A bed to sleep at night
Still there is
A hole in me
Something is missing
I can't feel free

Something is missing
Track Name: Last Stop For The Lonely
your bed may be warm
but so is the sun
if you don't give a sign
the bus will drive by

last stop for the lonely
last stop for the lonely
last stop for the lonely
you may stay if you want

where someone is waiting for you
where you live without worries
where you won't sell yourself short
you can air it all out
you can scream and shout

last stop for the lonely
last stop for the lonely
last stop for the lonely
you may stay if you want

it is always darkest before dawn
the tide is about to turn
maybe it’s time to move on

last stop for the lonely
last stop for the lonely
you may stay if you want
you may stay if you want
Track Name: Statement
possessions lead to worries
don't spend more then you have

don't be pathetic
stop blaming other people

live and let live

don’t believe everything you see
hear the other side too

live and let live

be the person you want to meet
be kind to yourself

don't fear what you don’t understand
know what you don't know

live and let live
Track Name: I Love Yoga
chakra
mantra
tantra
brahma

I sit in the room
my head up high
I feel so comfortable
connecting with the sky

my instructor
she looks so hot
but I should focus
on connecting with god

I love yoga, yeh!
I love yoga, yeh!

bending my legs
my arms and knees
I feel so relaxed
don't stop please

she smiles at me
when I leave the room
I'll sure will return
soon, very soon
Track Name: Top Of The World
Live is a survival tour
Sometimes you get lost
It just drags on and on
But when you reach the top

The hill can be a mountain
The slope can be steep
The higher you get
The better it will be

Like an eagle
Flying over a plain
Like a cloud
Spitting out rain

The hill can be a mountain
The slope can be steep
The higher you get
The better it will be
Track Name: Room For Improvement
Don't criticize yourself
Each day so much
You do what you can
Forget the golden touch

Don't underestimate yourself
You can do more than you think
You can lead a horse to water
But you cannot make him drink.

But there is

Room for improvement
Room for improvement
There is always
Room for improvement

You can tweet it or say it
Write it or play it
Mail it or shout it
Most will ignore it

Room for improvement
Room for improvement
There is always
Room for improvement
Track Name: Crash (When I Have A Car)
the motor is running
but the wheels ain't turning
my hands are shaking
I smell something burning

I was blind sided
hit in the flank
there is a large dent
too large to mend

crash
crash

is it me
or the road
other drivers
I need a scapegoat

crash
crash

when I have a car
I'm gonna make trips
visit old friends
I haven't seen for years

when I have a car
I'm going away
visit countries
never seen before

when I have a car
I'm gonna make it
when I have a car
I will go far

never be bound
by bus or train
free as a lion
into the wild open
Track Name: The Woman In Gold Velvet Out On The Sea Suite
lyrics by bithprod:

There on a rock in the cool blue mist
The woman in gold velvet will appear
I wish I could know if she really exists
At least I’ll know what she’s doing there

And I fight for a soul that is clad in blue
but stand there naked and hope I’m not seen

Destiny was cruel to me
Filthy and mean
Raw and obscene
and not even a waterfall
could get me clean

And there on a rock, my precious mirage
The woman in gold velvet turns her head

lyrcis by RfA:

setting the sails
hunting for
white whales

swim with the fish
and when I dive
I will survive

I'll be happy
boating around
just me

out here
on the sea
I'll be
finally
free
Track Name: Girl In The Wood
Girl With No Shoes
Standing in the Woods
Wondering where she is

What happened
The Night Before
Was she a saint
Or a whore

The ring on her finger
Seems so cheap

Her thin dress
Transparent white
Nothing to hide

Girl in the wood
What will become of you
Girl in the wood
What will become of you

She's so tired
But she has to run

Girl in the wood
What will become of you
Track Name: G.E.N.O.C.I.D.E.
I know a fun subject
To sing about
It considers lots of people
Don't mention it aloud

The Armenians in Turkey
Where are they now
The Jews in Arabia
Disappeared somehow

It's a bitter taboo
We shouldn't hide
Discuss it publicly
Don't close your eyes
G.E.N.O.C.I.D.E.

Hutus and Tutsis
And the Islamic State
We've got to act
Before it is too late

It's a bitter taboo
We shouldn't hide
Discuss it publicly
Don't close your eyes
G.E.N.O.C.I.D.E.
Track Name: I'm Ready (To Go)
enough is enough
time is misspend
have to leave
it has to end

I'm ready
I'm ready
I'm ready to go

it will be better
or it won't
but it will be different
that's what I want

I'm ready
I'm ready
I'm ready to go
Track Name: Play
We got to get this party started

You can’t win if you don’t play

Let’s pretend we know what we’re doing
Track Name: Music Should Be Free (Or Not)
Pirates torrent everywhere
Music for all to share
No need to pay a cent
Artist don't have to pay rent

In my own city core
No more record store
Free music everywhere
Hungry artists we don't care

Music Should Be Free (Or Not)
Music Should Be Free (Or Not)

Artists need food to eat
Label suits only need greed
Nothing stays the same forever
Are we stupid or so clever

Music Should Be Free (Or Not)
Music Should Be Free (Or Not)
Track Name: FUNeral
catch up with your family
talk to friends
a cheerful gathering
this is not the end

put the fun into funeral

wearing black
makes you hot
celebrate life
it's all you've got
Track Name: Dreaming Of Houses
brick by brick
a roof over your head
the fireplace is lit
a nice warm bed

don't open the door
or the cat runs away
an old wooden floor
a couch to spend the day

dreaming of houses
filled with spouses
dog kid garden tree
living the life of a family

I open the door
there is no-one inside
I long for my bed
where I can hide
Track Name: Flying Monkeys
when will there
be peace on earth
no more wars
we'll all be friends

when will we stop
lying and cheating
killing and raping
we'll all join hands

when will monkeys fly
when will monkeys fly

scientists
in laboratories
experimenting
with genetics

DNA RNA
animal drones
in the USA

when will monkeys fly
when will monkeys fly

if you've never seen a flying monkey
then you clearly don't dream enough
Track Name: Inertia
doing nothing
all day long
standing still
something is wrong

don't intervene
take no actions
no responsibility
no errors

I don't know where to start
inertia
the hill is so high
inertia

don't respond to mails
facebook sky twitter fails
I don't mind
I'm deaf dumb and blind

your couch is your home
inertia
you feel so alone
inertia

it's a struggle
(get out of bed)
to get what I want
it's a struggle
(greet people)
to go where I want
(dress yourself)
Track Name: The Decline Of The Austro-Hungarian Empire
where is the kaiser, we need some guidance
large empires tend to vanish away
the schönen Donau under clouds
Austria-Hungary where are you now

where is the exit, where is the sea
falling apart, where can it be
the waltz is dying out
Austria-Hungary where are you now

we can live together
(we're not happy together)

we can all live together in peace
when we respect our minorities
new nations need to break out
Austria-Hungary where are you now

Sissi Sissi don't get killed
but the emperor must be derailed
Track Name: When Love Is Gone
When love is gone
You shouldn't stay home
Go visit places
And read a book

It's not the end of the world
There's plenty of fish in the sea
It's all in your head
Don't feel so sad

When love is gone
You can finally do
Things for yourself
Track Name: The House Is Empy Now
Faces on the wall
Looking down
Flaking paint
Dead flowers
The fridge ain't humming
Flies are buzzing

The house is empty now
The house is empty now
The house is empty now
The house is empty now

Dust on the shelves
Doors are broken
The garden looks like a forest
Somewhere far away
A dog is barking

The house is empty now
The house is empty now
The house is empty now
The house is empty now
