1.
Get Over It! 01:30
when the sun feels like the moon and the wine tastes like vinegar take a deep breath close your eyes and tell yourself to get over it get over it get over it this time when your friends never listen pretend you're somewhere else now is the time to feel free break the shackles be who you wanna be when your family is mentally missing close your eyes have a deep sigh
2.
When you're feeling lonely Nowhere to go Close your eyes And erase the lies Make your soul grow Make your soul grow Like a mountain Like a fountain Of love When you're heartbroken Nobody understands you Take a deep breath And forget the stress Sooner or later You will feel better It needs some time To heal
3.
Get Out 01:13
Like a flea in a web Or a cat in a burning house Like a plane crashed into sea A relation with a bad spouse You’ve got the TV I’ve got the RC You’ve got the kids I’ve got the goldfish Get out of here Get out of here Get on Get off Get up Get down Get out! It’s cruel to stay here Happiness is a far away Take the first train Even better catch a plane Get out of here And stay out
4.
the pesky teacher grilling your mind you ain’t blind lying in your bed wondering about life after death If you don’t like the answer Don’t ask the question Don’t ask the question The answer may be sour The answer may be acid Ignorance Is so bliss when your time is up looking back at your life was it worth while If you don’t like the answer Don’t ask the question Don’t ask the question can you handle the truth can you handle a lie you know why
5.
The signs are missing No marks on the road Destination unknown The ticket girl is puzzling This train waits for no-one Destination unknown While outside there are wars We carry on our daily chores Going nowhere Doomed for failure Born for success Nobody knows Cause and effect While outside there are wars We carry on our daily chores Going nowhere When did it start How will it end Questions too difficult To comprehend
6.
talk the talk walk the walk but don’t patronize me at home or on the phone don’t patronize me don’t patronize me don’t patronize me like a king to his servants like a master to his slaves don’t patronize me like the experts on tv don’t tell me how to behave don’t patronize me I comprehend what you are telling you are selling a lie to me
7.
Don't take yourself so seriously Life is not one big mystery Don’t lie in bed stressing out about tomorrow Don't take yourself so seriously Relax into the moment Lighten up, enjoy the day Laugh more at life Just think the rain away Don't stress out Don't be scared Don't be angry Don't carry the world on your shoulders. The world goes on without you The world goes on even without you Don't take yourself so seriously Soon we all be history Life is more fun, when you accept things as they are Don't take yourself so seriously
8.
The old wind In the hallway Telling tales Of gloom and failures Watching movies Or closing your eyes May help for a moment But not for a long time longing for warmer days longing for warmer days Where is the summer Where is the summer When it's cold and wet Puddles as deep as wide You need an umbrella A place to hide Believe me The summer will come back Believe me It’s an scientific fact Where is the summer Where is the summer longing for warmer days longing for warmer days

the night is black no stars no more nowhere to go I’m feeling cold hee we’re going down hee we’re going so down and don’t think … you’ll be spared it starts with a mistake it ends with a war it will never be like it was before like a falling leaf like a shot down bird
10.
When you don't like your work Or your boss When you don't like your house Or the spouse Learn new things Develop yourself Live your life Like it's supposed to be It's never too late to change It's never too late to change Change Don't care about What others may think Give it a try Don't ask why It's never too late to change It's never too late to change Change
11.
A technicolor movie In 2 shades of grey We're all on the web With nothing to say You only have to understand if it needs an explanation The fata morgana The figment of imagination Don’t stress about where you have been Think about where you are going Life is just an extended dream Joyless dead end job Never mind, something will turn up The void in the machinery Wonders aimlessly Don’t stress about where you have been Think about where you are going Life is just an extended dream Nothing is like it seems
12.
there will be a day when all feels OK no more bills to pay you'll find a a way there will be a time and place to find a smile on your face no more rats in the race you'll be the ace of spades
13.
bury the hatchet rebuild the bridges nothing is unfixable the road may be long with dangerous curves it will be worth the effort there will be a time there will be a day to return home to go back home again the old school demolished the grocer replaced the play garden closed happiness is gone I’m going home I'm going home
