PROPORTIONS

 

Apart

 

Let’s see how far that I can go with

being friendly and subversive,

There’s nothing I should hide from,

 

It is kind of hard to foresee

If some new words would change it

A lot of prejudice in my heart.

 

We are what we are, we are apart.

Apart from what we are, we all play our part
In this game called life, love.

 

It’s crazy, when did I engage in

a competition that won’t give relief,

Show yourself some pride, love.

 

There’s a difference,

between saying what you mean,

and meaning what you say,

Oh read between the lines, love.

 

We are what we are, we are apart.

Apart from what we are, we all play our part.

We are what we are, we are apart.

Apart from what we are, we all play our part
In this game called life, love.

 

We are what we are, we are apart.

Apart from what we are, we all play our part.

We are what we are, we are apart,

Apart from what we are, we all play our part
In this game called life, love,

In this game called life, love,

In this game called life, love,

In this game called life, love.

 

 

I Wouldn't Mind

 

I don’t feel

That things

Will turn out well

Because we’re dreaming of a spell

I don’t think

That we

As such

Can all agree on everything

 

Your ideas, your ideas

I can feel that

They are made, they are made

Of a fake thread

And your stupid silly paper cup regrets

 

I wouldn’t mind if you would mind

I wouldn’t mind if you would mind

 

The dirt
On your

Thin hands

It’s a gross, but unavoidable side effect

The result

Of our sweat

There is a tiny little engine that disconnects

 

All the screws, all the screws

Fully rusted

We get lost, we get lost

In our sub-conscience

Got to be, got to be a cause for everything

 

I wouldn’t mind if you would mind

I wouldn’t mind if you would mind

 

You disgraced my identity
I can’t fake your simplicity

 

I wouldn’t mind if you would mind

I wouldn’t mind if you would mind

 

 

Integrity (You Don't Owe Nothing To Me)

 

Common integrity

Just fake, fake what you can see

Won’t you do it for me

 

So common integrity,

Just don’t, don’t be such a tease,

A lie would help me to ease

 

Could you drop me, just fool me
If I would ask you to,

I will end up, I will end up

On a surface I just made up

 

You don’t owe nothing,

You don’t owe nothing to,
Youdon’t owe nothing to me

 

Common integrity,

I will learn, learn to be less keen

To go swim with the stream

 

Common integrity,

I just need, need a guarantee

To put my mind at ease

 

You don’t owe nothing,

You don’t owe nothing to,
Youdon’t owe nothing to me

 

We all laugh and we cry,

And we think that we die,

And we fear and we fear and we fear and we fear that we’ll be okay
Some day

 

So you crush with your teeth

Your own jaw and your lips,

You should know, you should know,

You should know, you should know,

That the pain it is real

 

You don’t owe nothing,

You don’t owe nothing to,
You
don’t owe nothing to me

 

 

Within Me

 

I’ve got too much of everything,
Oh there are two sorts of happiness I see,
I think of you, I think of me,

Used to be tempted by the thought of relief,

Tempted by my mind as retreat,

I think of you, I think of me.

 

Is it within me or is it around us?

Is it within me or is it around us?

Is it within me or is it around us?

Is it within me or is it around us?

 

Got to be careful about my own pathology

Self-inflicted bad lottery

My eye on you,

your eye on me.

 

Self-sufficiency, what does such a word even mean?

Close your door, oh how does it feel?

Where there’s no you,

there is no me.

 

Is it within me or is it around us?

Is it within me or is it around us?

Is it within me or is it around us?

Is it within me or is it around us?

 

 

 

 

Comfort Me

 

Comfort me with something

Show me your scars

Cryptogenetic impasses,

Is that what we are?

 

Comfort me with something

A bedtime tale

Never liked happy endings

Maybe some moonshine would help

 

I’ve got nothing to show,

Got nothing to cope with,

Nothing explicit.

I’ve got nothing to show,

Got nothing to cope with,

Nothing explicit.

 

Disconcert me with something,

A burning desire,

I like the warmth of it,

Won’t see the grime.

 

Disconcert me with something,

Hush hush, rewind,

Narcoleptic and feverish

Stagger into the night,

 

I’ve got nothing to show,

Got nothing to cope with,

Nothing explicit

I’ve got nothing to show,

Got nothing to cope with,

Nothing explicit.

 

Forgot my head in your room,
I’ll
come find it now

Forgot my head in your room

 

Can’t find my mind in a world

I know nothing about

Can’t find my mind in your world

 

Forgot my head in your room,
I’ll
come find it now

Forgot my head in your room

Forgot my head in your room,
I’ll
come find it now

 

Can’t find my mind in a world

I know nothing about

Can’t find my mind in your world

Can’t find my mind in a world

I know nothing about

 

Forgot my head in your room,
I’ll
come find it now

Forgot my head in your room

Forgot my head in your room,
I’ll
come find it now

 

Can’t find my mind in a world

I know nothing about

Can’t find my mind in your world

Can’t find my mind in a world

I know nothing about

 

Lack Of Proportion

 

Is it true that you’re tall whenever you are home,

Is it true that you fall like pebbles in the snow,

Sinking, sinking.

Is it me who is wrong or situations overall,

There’s face on the wall, wonder what it’s looking for,

Intrusion, intrusion.

 

I got lost within a lack of proportion

I got lost within a lack of proportions

 

Is it valid, is it sound, what’s this hole in the ground,

I will leave myself for now, I rely on your account,

Illusion, illusion.

My head is stuck in a picture way too narrow for the view,

What is wrong with the colours, composition without rule,

Allusion, Allusion.

 

I got lost within a lack of proportion

I got lost within a lack of proportions.

 

Is it true that you’re tall whenever you are home,

Is it true that you fall like pebbles in the snow,

Sinking, sinking.

 

 

Insecure

 

An old man with a cell phone,
It feels so good to compare,

Become sad in a second,

If it comes to ourselves

An undertone in your critique,
I guess I’ll leave it that way,

No reason to reach for the peak,

As it will change anyway

 

This was now for the last time,
Why would you feel insecure?

 

A crackling voice on a record,

We got the freedom to share,

How would you pronounce these same words?

Was that a smirk on your face?

Oh won’t you rather be patient,

Homesick ‘till we’re there,

Could you stop being gracious?

Trust me no one needs that.
 

This was now for the last time,
Why would you feel insecure?

 

Why would you feel insecure?

 

And it’s too early to go home,

Egomaniac vertigo,

It’s too early to go home,

Egomaniac vertigo,
It’s too early, it’s too early,

It’s too early to go home,

It’s too early, it’s too early,

It’s too early to go home.

 

 

All Night Long

 

I’ll stay here all night long,

I’ll stay here all night long,

I’ll stay here all night long,
I’ll stay here all night

 

All night long

All night long

All night long

 

You’ll wait there all day long

You’ll wait there all day long

You’ll wait there all day long

You’ll wait there all day long

 

All day long
All day long

All day long

 

We must look like very unlike peers

We’re incompatible poles,

We must look like very unlike peers

We’re incompatible poles,

 

We’re incompatible

We’re incompatible

We’re incompatible

We’re incompatible poles

 

We’re incompatible

We’re incompatible

We’re incompatible

We’re incompatible poles

 

 

Within Me

 

I’ve got too much of everything,
Oh there are two sorts of happiness I see,
I think of you, I think of me,

Used to be tempted by the thought of relief,

Tempted by my mind as retreat,

I think of you, I think of me.

 

Is it within me or is it around us?

Is it within me or is it around us?

Is it within me or is it around us?

Is it within me or is it around us?

 

Got to be careful about my own pathology

Self-inflicted bad lottery

My eye on you,

your eye on me.

 

Self-sufficiency, what does such a word even mean?

Close your door, oh how does it feel?

Where there’s no you,

there is no me.

 

Is it within me or is it around us?

Is it within me or is it around us?

Is it within me or is it around us?

Is it within me or is it around us?

 

 

 

 

I Don't See Myself Like You Do

 

We came so far, we came so far, we came so far

Come on further, further,

I know we are whatever we are because we were whatever we were

Don’t tear apart

 

I don’t see myself like you do

I don’t see myself like you do

I don’t see myself like you

 

We went too far, we went too far, we went too far,

we went too far

To forget the past

There is a judge for all of us, it ain’t god, neither one of us

Trapped in this scrap yard

 

I don’t see myself like you do

I don’t see myself like you do

I don’t see myself like you

 

Oh from time to time I had some trouble on my mind

Oh from time to time I had some trouble on my mind

Oh from time to time I had some trouble on my mind

 

I don’t see myself like you do

I don’t see myself like you do

I don’t see myself

I don’t see myself like you

 

What Did You Mean By That

 

Let’s talk about the first thoughts you had

If they were ever meant to change

You raised something hard to understand

What did you mean by that?

 

Let’s talk about the first words you said

Oh the unspoken speaks the truth,

Think that denying is your way to hide,

What did you mean by that?

 

What did you mean by that?

You will hide where I will find you

You will hide where I will find you

You will hide where I will find you

You will hide where I will find you

 

What did you mean by that?

You will hide where I will find you

You will hide where I will find you

You will hide where I will find you

You will hide where I will find you

 

 

What did you mean by that?

You will hide where I will find you

You will hide where I will find you

You will hide where I will find you

You will hide where I will find you

UNCONCERNED. EP

 

Unconcerned

I leave the door ajar because I am not so sure

If a light beam always shows, the quickest way out.

There’s a lie and a truth in everyone of my thoughts

In higher esteem I hold you, as I could ever devote.

 

Long live the unconcerned

I wouldn’t take my word

As cornerstone I sink

Found lost,
Long live the unconcerned.

 

I’ve got a wavy mind that is floating like

Soothing tingling noises of a baby’s cry,

I imagine to be two parents at the same time

Just to give a major reason, to every act, every rhyme.

 

Long live the unconcerned

I wouldn’t take my word

As cornerstone I sink

A shrinking violet thinks
Long live the unconcerned.

 

 

Berlin Mood

 

Lady, I guess I need a new start,
I guess I need a blank start,
I guess I need a good start,

To get out of this.

Some people think me to be jovial,
But only if I feel well,
Only if I’m not down,
If the atmosphere allows,

 

This is my mellow bloom,
I’m in my Berlin mood,
Hang on to this.


Lately I was in a sad mood,
There’s nothing absolute,
Yearning lasts for good,
I think I really liked you.

 

This is my mellow bloom,
I’m in my Berlin mood,
Hang on to this.

 

I remember the places, but only the places, the ones that I’ve been to,
I failed at giving them names,
I remember the faces, but only their faces, the ones that I
smiledto,
I failed at giving them names,
I failed at giving them names,

 

This is my mellow bloom,
I’m in my Berlin mood,
Hang on to this.

 

This is my mellow bloom,
I’m in my Berlin mood,
Hang on to this.

Mainly

 

No one told me only people can lose their time

Time itself cannot get lost

It starts with a thought, it ends with a note

In the end you’ll get it all.

 

I got my heart on the right place

Momma said I could be anything

As long as I long, as long as I work

There are different kinds of failure.

 

Mainly it’s all about another

Word for each other,

Yet again what’s needed to be healed.

 

Fighting ain’t a part of my being

but I agree on disagreeing,

As keen as a razor, a mind doesn’t need

More than its reality.

 

My Icon of self-determination

Moral fraud without suffocation,

You gave air to my lungs, melody to this song,
I give in to everything.

 

Mainly it’s all about another

Word for each other,

Yet again what’s needed to be healed.

Another Try

A look inside, so you feel better

A spent thought on every thought

Only reflection after all

 

Lied so long that it matters

Words are elastic if you want

What’s introspection after all

 

We don’t need another try

 

There is work and there is leisure

We’ve been through this before

If we had a choice at all

 

Morbidity and pressure

What’s a value after all

Where there’s no law, there’s no remorse


We don’t need another try


What did I expect from that?

WANDERING

 

Until It Gets Better

 

Talk until it gets better, if I can help then I will try

Talk until it gets better but if it won’t then you may cry
Maybe I should


I said hey, megalomaniac

Why do you keep on losing track?

Once you, you were one of your own best friends

How can this be its end?


Talk until it gets better, if I can help then I will try

Talk until it gets better, but if it won’t then you may cry
Maybe I should

 

You fake the truth, so you can be true,

How could you, why would you, how dare you!
But I get the struggle, with reality

If it wasn’t there, that would be a pity


Talk until it gets better, if I can help then I will try

Talk until it gets better, but if it won’t then you may cry
Maybe I should

 

 

 

 

Future Friends

Could you blow out the last candle, because for me it’s time to go
I’m not good at goodbye but I’m scared to hit the road
You threw away all my clothes, kicked me out of my home
So now I’m going barefoot to a place I yet don’t know

And I hope, my future friends are as lovely as you were
As lovely as you were, as lovely as you

Got no secure ground, all I got is security of possibility
That this secure ground can be found – ed
Founded by my friends, founded by my friends

And I hope, my future friends are as lovely as you were, as lovely as you were
And I hope, my future friends are as lovely as you were, as lovely as you were


Could I come back just in case
Could I come back just in case
Could I come back just in case
(Could I come back, could I come back, could I, could I, could I, could I, just in case)
Could I come back just in case
(Could I come back, could I come back, could I, could I, could I, could I, just in case)

Will you remember me?
Will you remember me?

 

 

 

 

I Was Here Before You


When I was just a young boy I didn’t care

Being happy as my goal, of that I was aware

Now I think about what they think and that’s kind of weird

I hope I can be myself, just like then


I was here before you, I just didn’t know what to say

I was here before you

I was here before you, I just didn’t know what to say

I was here before you

 

When I think of the younger version of myself

It’s hard to understand, is evolution meant by this?

Easy things become harder, the hard ones even more

Virtues to be defined I felt naturally before


I was here before you, I just didn’t know what to say

I was here before you

I was here before you, I just didn’t know what to say

I was here before you
 

Could you leave now, please leave now, could you leave now, leave now

Could you leave now, please leave now, could you leave now, leave now

Leave now, leave now, leave now, leave now

Leave now, leave now, leave now, leave now

I was here before you, I just didn’t know what to say

 

 

 

 

Wandering


I was wandering, I was wandering through the mountains
Towards the sea, to see you


I was wondering, I was wondering if you’d feel this
Of course you did feel it


I was wondering, I was wondering if you’d miss me
Of course I did miss you


I was following, I was following my feelings
They bothered me too much, too much


I was following you, I was following you to
I was following you, I was following you to

 

Through the woods and through the mountains

Through a city and a fountain, follow you

Through the woods and through the mountains

Through a city and a fountain, follow you

...


I was wandering, I was wandering through the mountains

Towards the sea, to see you

 

 

 

Dancing Alone

 

Don’t expect me, to see the unity

I am what I do, I can’t escape singularity

No matter how hard I try, I can’t see through your eyes

No matter how hard you try, you can’t see through mine

 

Dancing alone in the morning

Speaking to those that ignore you

You had someone that didn’t ignore you

Who didn’t want to dance ‘til the morning

 

If I do what you want me to, am I still what I do

If I lack of clarity, I try to love what I cannot see

No matter how hard I try, I can’t see through your eyes

No matter how hard you try, you can’t see trough mine

 

Dancing alone in the morning...

 

Hey boy, hey girl, hey boy, hey girl, hey boy, you’ve loved each other before

Hey boy, hey girl, hey boy, hey girl, hey, boy, you’ve loved each other before

 

Dancing alone in the morning...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Take My Hand

 

When I woke up in the morning, yes I knew it was all gone
But I know, yes I know, because I had this before

When I spoke to you at ‘noon, you said to me see you soon
But I know, yes I know, because you said that before

When I met you in the evening, you didn’t know me anymore
But I know yes I know, because I trusted you before

 

Now just take my hand, let me take you away

From all the things you fear, from all the things you fear

Now just take my hand, let me take you away

From all the things you fear

 

When you woke up in the morning, of your feelings not so sure

Do you know, do you know, what happened behind closed doors?

When walls of secrets need to fall

Think you’re most honest one of all?

And I know, yes you know I trusted you before

When the sorrow of decisions catches you in foreign visions

Yes I know, yes you know, you must be better than before

 

Now just take my hand...

 

Because I would like things, as they need to be, as they need to be

Yes I would like things, yes I would like things as they need to be
As they need to be, just take my hand

 

 

 

Lack Of Childhood

 

I guess there is a lack of childhood right now, but then
We need some time to recover, best friends

That aren’t good enough to keep, I know
This space is hard to cover

For me you were always cuter than anyone

Sometimes more and sometimes less

But in the end you were still cute

I guess there is a lack of safety right now, but then

You can come to me whenever, you want
Be part of their utopia, in there

Nothing can give you shelter

 

For me you were always cuter than anyone

Sometimes more and sometimes less

But in the end you were still cute
For me you were always cuter than anyone

Sometimes more and sometimes less

But in the end you were still cute

Wash your hair day for day
You can’t wash out your mistakes
Raise your glass to forget
And I’ll raise mine up to you, in a few years we’ll laugh about it

 

For me you were always cuter than anyone

Sometimes more and sometimes less

But in the end you were still cute
 

 

 

 

 

Now is forever

 

Girl met boy, they fell in love

They didn’t notice how the time rushes

(Hey)

Days they pass and so do moods

Identity is what lasts since childhood

 

Together they don’t think of the future, of the future

Why should they, at the moment they’re together

Together they don’t think, that’s their nature, their nature

As long as it feels right why be bothered?
 

This was just meant for now and now it’s forever

This was just meant for now and now it’s forever, forever

 

Girl and boy, they are in love
They have seen different but they’ve got enough
You cannot take each opportunity
They understood cause they found somebody

 

Together they don’t think of the future

Why should they, at the moment they’re together

Together they don’t think, that’s their nature,

As long as it feels right why be bothered?

 

This was just meant for now and now it’s forever

This was just meant for now and now it’s forever


This was just meant for now and now it’s forever

This was just meant for now and now it’s forever

This was just meant for now, this was just meant for now
This was just meant for now, and now it’s forever

 

 

 

 

Both Sides

 

Put your hat on when you leave

That’s what mother always said, yes she always said that

Engage your mind before you talk, that’s what father always said

Remember why he said that

 

Two hearts are beating in my chest

Every clash seems like a test, seems like a test

The first one bolts straight from the gate

The second one tells me how to wait, tells me how to wait


Feel the goodness in a smile

Intention’s strongest in a trial, there’s no denial

Say what you feel without fear

You’ve got good sense for people near, for the people near

 

Two hearts are beating in my chest

Every clash seems like a test, seems like a test

The first one bolts straight from the gate

The second one tells me how to wait, tells me how to wait


Two hearts are beating in my chest

Every clash seems like a test, seems like a test

The first one bolts straight from the gate

The second one tells me how to wait, tells me how to wait

 

It’s her in my heart, thanks for both sides

It’s him in my mind, thanks for both sides

 

 

 

 

Tree

 

He takes his can, sets out for his tree

He’s doing this every week

This tree accompanied him his whole life

It sees him laughing, but also cry

While watering this tree

We can watch both growing

Shafts of sunlight on his skin
He sees gratitude in the wind

 

And he knows he’s not the only gardener

And that a time comes, when trees can grow on their own

 

Water drop for water drop
Tear for tear

This tree, has a history
Once it was just a seed

And he knows that this shows
That a small seed can become a big tree

Shafts of sunlight on his skin
He sees gratitude in the wind


And he knows he’s not the only gardener

And that a time comes, when trees can grow on their own

And he knows he’s not the only gardener

And that a time comes, when trees can grow on their own

 

And he hopes that summer comes already in spring
And he hopes that summer comes already in spring
And he hopes that summer comes already in spring
So that he can profit from its warmth, from its warmth
