the most unlikely creature

on my waysides

i keep finding things on my waysides

like photographs

and broken, tarnished little pieces

of cars or kids' jewellery

i take them home with me

and store them

like souvenirs of places

i haven't seen

 

i keep tripping over people on my waysides

like drunks and beggars

and lonely boys

and sometimes

i take them home with me

like witnesses of somebody else's memories

 

i keep sitting on my wayside

waiting for someone to find me

like a curious boy

or some other explorer

and take me home with him

and ask me

to be his last souvenir


mindgapping

i'm not growing wiser, just older

with each disappointment

bout the gap in your mind

between what you say and what you do

 

wait! make me wait

tell me i'm so cute

i know you're not popping love

i know you only blew

i'm not growing wiser, just older...

 

bye! leave me dry

i'm drowning in my blues

leave me in my garden

pick or leave - just choose

i'm not growing wiser, just older...

 

and i would really love to see

what could become of you and me

so i keep hanging from this tree

cuz maybe someday you might come to save me


barcelona

if i could choose

i'd never talk

i'd keep dancing til the sun

brings me back home

i'd have the greatest fun

listening to my guests

but only if their hearts speak

as truly as they can

 

i'd watch them smile and cry

 

i'd read books and lips

and people's faces

i'd leave any question unanswered

forever more

i'd leave for barcelona

where no one would notice me

but only if their hearts speak

as truly as they can

 

i'd watch the world pass me by

 

if i was ready

i'd hit the ground

i'd lay silent

til there's only one word left to say


let gravity rule

i should have stayed home

and let gravity rule

now the universe is silent

and i'm the fool again

 

you call me depressive

and the diagnose might be right

now my universe is empty

no stars, not even satellites

 

didn't i say i'm sorry?

(i'm not sure)

there's no sound in outer space

and the universe is ugly

when you're lost there

 

i just got disconnected

now i'm running out of air

and the universe gets creepy

when you hear nothing but your heartbeat

 

i should have stayed home

now the universe is silent

didn't i say i'm sorry?

and the universe is ugly

when you're lost there

(reconnect me!)

 

well, maybe i was wrong

i can sense something moving

this universe is a home

of the alienating kind


strongman sandow

you are a clown

you can tell the best of jokes

you can make a crowd laugh and a fairy giggle

ain't that just the best showdown?

still you're alone

still you're holding on

it's just your mishaps

they're waiting for

 

strongman sandow

muscle display

top of nunatak

sandow

 

you are a beefcake

you got the poses to keep them baffled

let them not see you through

let them not know the truth

still you're alone

still you're holding on to the tale that

building buff might soon enough

build love, too

 

strongman sandow...

 

you can scoop a horse up

but not your soul

 


biest

halt still, haariges kleines biest

hör auf, dich zu beschweren,

dass du ohne mich nix siehst

 

hast dir die augen ausm kopf geheult

gib zu, dir hat's gefallen

heimlich grinsend deine stirn

aufn tisch zu knallen

trink endlich aus!

du hast es dir verdient

hör auf, mich zu beschweren

dumme drama queen!

 

sitz still, mein rastloses tier

hör auf, hör auf, dich zu beschweren bei mir

du singst die schönsten lieder

von hoffnung und verdruss

von heldentaten, müden kriegern

aber jetzt ist schluss

 

setz ab deine krone

du bist längst abgelöst

es geht viel leichter ohne

die weltgrößte sause

aber du bist längst eingedöst

mann, geh nach hause!

 

halt still, haariges kleines biest

hör auf, dich zu beschweren,

dass du ohne mich nix siehst


firebugs

if it's really love

that you want the most

you'll just have to do more

than light the fire once and watch it burn down

 

if it's really only fun

that you're up for

you might just as well have me move over

let's be firebugs

and burn the whole thing down

 

but i can see you're only bugging me

 

if it's really fame

that keeps you from keeping in

you should start to spray sparks

unless you fan your fans

they might soon burn down

 

if it's really only wood you're collecting

what's the sense in that

if you ain't got a match?

let's be firebugs

and burn ourselves down

 

but i can see you're only bugging me


holly and i

there's laughter on the way

oh, and it won't stop

it's cruel things they say

oh, and they won't stop

it's so hard

 

there's nowhere else to go

(now, holly)

we can't escape ourselves

let's take away the thrill

(now, holly)

and deal with what is left

 

and as the night goes darker

stars shine brighter

earth goes rough

and we go party

so hard


boxed in and out

11:42

stuck in the middle of shouting and crying

no words come out

this time last year it was the other way around

 

don't you give me a two-day-delay

we will both be okay again someday

 

16:23

already moving around the furniture in my mind

so the rooms won't feel too big

dividing our cups and wondering

how many of my friends will be left for me?

 

you leave me boxed in and out these days

 

01:17

but eight weeks later

brought my two boys to bed

analyzing the anatomy

half a beer left and about half of me

i wonder who will remember the legend of you and me?

this is lonely

you leave me boxed in and out these days

don't you give me a two-day-delay

we will both be okay again someday

 

five minutes and one year later

i hear myself say

this woman is a real cool writer

and why do i talk like that?

with this ridiculous american accent

and why do i talk at all?

i wonder who will remember the legend of you and me?

this is lonely

you leave me boxed in and out these days

don't you give me a two-day-delaywe will both be okay again someday

i wonder who will remember the legend of you and me?

 

 


fainthearted heart

long before now

you could have told me

you didn't want me

or my company

you left me looped in for nothing

you fostered fictions of something

 

and i wish you the best with all of my heart

still cannot get rid of the thought

how much longer would this prologue have taken

if i hadn't forced youto fast-forward

to the inevitable and pretty sad ending?

 

long before now

you could have warned me

you're an illusionist

playing tricks on my

you promised magic or something

you gave me rabbits and nothing

 

and i wish you the best with all of my heart

still cannot get rid of the thought

how much longer would this prologue have taken

if i hadn't forced youto fast-forward

to the inevitable and pretty sad ending?

 

i found out now

you only bluffed me

in your fainthearted heart

there's no room for me

you sent me goodies for nothing

to keep me looped in for something

 

and i wish you the best with all of my heart

still cannot get rid of the thought

how much longer would this prologue have taken

if i hadn't forced youto fast-forward

to the inevitable and pretty sad ending?
