Track Name: Get Over It!
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
Track Name: Make Your Soul Grow
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
Track Name: Get Out
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
Track Name: If You Don't Like The Answer
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
Track Name: Destination Unknown
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
Track Name: Don't Patronize Me
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
Track Name: Don't Take Yourself So Seriously
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
Track Name: Where's The Summer
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
Track Name: We're Going Down
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
Track Name: It's Never Too Late To Change
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
Track Name: Life Is Just A Dream
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
Track Name: It's Gonna Be Alright
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
Track Name: The Long Trip Home
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
