Track Name: Hollywood
I rest my case on your busy table
I feed my maze to your horses' stable
Woooo-o-ooooo
When I turn my back to the sun
Woooo-o-ooooo
Will you see that I am on the run
Who lost his love in a bet
With such an elegant vulture
He's such a good actor
Just put him through the test
Now I do clearly see you
Would rather kill the spotlight and get into a fight
And kill me Hollywood, Hollywood!

I rest my case on your record label
You need your space, you who dress in sable
Woooo-o-ooooo
When I turn my back to the sun
Woooo-o-ooooo
Will you see that I was the one
Who lost his love in a bet
With such an elegant vulture
He's such a good actor
Just put him through the test
Now I do clearly see you
Would rather kill the spotlight and get into a fight
And kill me Hollywood, Hollywood!

Woooo-o-ooooo
When I turn my back to the sun
Woooo-o-ooooo
Will you see that I was the one
Who lost his love in a bet
With such an elegant vulture
He's such a good actor
Just put him through the test
Now I do clearly see you
Would rather kill the spotlight and get into a fight
And kill me Hollywood, Hollywood!
Track Name: Black Forest Side
Travelling the black forest side
Killers they vanish and hide behind
The trees
Carrying nothing but my damned soul
I remember where I've been told to go
By thee

Surrounded by them cloaks
Made from the fabric of four mute lightning bolts
So long ago!

Left no lover nor friendship too kind
Memories they vanish and hide behind
The trees
My good fortune no longer flies
Like an arrow shot from the skies it dives
Into me

I have killed many men before
And many men have killed me
Therefore what do I mean by death
And what is death meant to be

I only know you don't have to pay for it
It's absolutely free
Even so, please don't give it to me...
Please don't give it to me..
Please don't give it to me..
Please don't give it to me.
Track Name: Ligia
Ligia, sing me a song
So I can sing along and leap headfirst
Into the blue
Ligia, don't get me wrong
Share all of your thoughts in hypno-mystical ancient tunes

The other girls, they sing just fine
But I don't want to make them mine
No I don't, no I don't...
I don't usually nod to folklore
But now I do...

Ligia, please set me free
'Cause now I want to see where all my folks
Wait for me
Ligia, you're the loveliest drone
Don't leave me here alone 'cause I have no where
Else to be

The other girls, they sing just fine
But I don't want to make them mine
No I don't, no I don't...
I don't usually nod to folklore
But now I do...

Never-ending eyes
Please say something
Never ending eyes
Uncross your legs, uncross your legs
Track Name: In The Cold Of Another Night Out
All alone we are
With the city within
The cobblestone is silky,
Still the air is quite thin
In the cold of another night out

I ask around for change,
for a smoke and suspense
Swarms invade private bohemia,
There's no line of defense
In the cold of another night out

I'd tell the man in the cab
Don't take me home just yet
Take me to the countryside instead

Alexandria's library
Briefed on bathroom walls
A girl hides her face behind him
As the darkness crawls
In the cold of another night out

Tell me my friend
Why would you wear your face so low
I've seen my other end
And it didn't say hello
In the cold of another night out

I'd tell the man in the cab
Don't take me home just yet
Take me to the countryside instead

I smoke one by the fireplace
with her cloak over my knees
The pines whisper farewell
And now I'd rather be
In the cold of another night out
Track Name: Golden Man
I see your spaceship in the sky
You tell me that it's time to fly
You greet me with them kind of words
In a language that I've never heard

You show me pictures of their towns
Of their kings who wear no crowns
Everyone lives there for today
They don't fight and they don't pray

They don't pray...

The meadow lingers for your return
The hares and foxes under the same sun
Gazing into it all became blind
Without perception their one of a kind

When the Golden Man does come down
You'll be to blind to see his pointy crown
Everyone lives there for today
And we still fight and kill and we still pray

We still pray...

Golden Man have mercy on my dear soul
Without you all my journeys become strolls
Watch me from the skies watch me from inside
When the sun comes down please be my own guide

And I'll pray...
