silent tragedy

[anhören]
	  one last kiss before i leave
	  one last embrace before i quit the stage
	  how can you say you're mine?
	  i'm here on borrowed time
	  how could you think this would go on and go on and go on now?
          
	  you never looked like this before
	  ten greasy seconds creeping on the floor
	  how could you say i'm your's?
	  i'm good at slamming doors
	  you could have realized a hundred times before
	  
 	     so here we come
             it's your silent tragedy
	     here it comes
	     coming here to stay
	    
	  how could you say that this is not the end?
	  i'm good at doors, but i am great with ends
	  how can you say you're mine?
	  don't worry, i'll be fine
	  as soon as i get out of here and get you out of my mind

	     so here we come
	     it's your silent tragedy
	     here it comes
	     coming here to stay
	     it's your silent tragedy
  	     here it comes
	     coming here to stay

	  get get get get get get get get 
	  gotta get away
	  
	     so here we come
	     it's your silent tragedy

dreiminutenlicht

[anhören]
	  das abendland geht wieder einmal unter
	  egal wie man es dreht, es bleibt vertrackt
	  die kleinen sünder straft man
	  wer groß ist, straft sich lügen
	  und wieder mal hat irgendwer versagt

	     mehr licht
   	     und du liegst auf dem rücken, den kopf in der gosse
	     mehr licht
	     gelber natriumdampf, neon auf deine seele
	     mehr licht
	     wie ne motte im strahler mit 500 watt
  	     mehr licht
	     mehr licht

	  erzähl mir nicht was falsch ist und was richtig
	  da hast du nicht mehr ahnung von als ich
	  ich taste nach dem schalter 
	  und bin planlos auf der suche
	  drei minuten sind zu kurz für mich

             [chorus]

	  nach grauen katzen wird ab jetzt getreten
	  (toleranz wird überschätzt)
	  noch siebeneinhalb schritte bis zur wand
	  du löst dich aus dem schatten
	  die suche ist zu ende
	  in wahrheit hab ich dich schon lang erkannt
	  lang erkannt
	 

stay

i'm just waking up - from what can't be a dream
from the jigsaw of my mind - some parts are missing as it seems
or even as it seems to me - that things don't fit in where they should
anymore the silence bears - the question if they ever could

   (cause) i miss u every moment, i miss u every day
   feel more than twice-abandoned, any way
   cause i'm through with pretending, cause i am through with shame
   and i am through with who's the one to blame

have u lost your faith? Sacrificed your true beliefs?
for a life that complicated, emptiness can bring relief
each time setting things up new, i just make the same mistakes
i gained a talent for predicting the very moment when it breaks

   (cause) i miss u every moment, i miss u every day
   feel more than twice-abandoned, any way
   cause i'm through with pretending, cause i am through with shame
   and i am through with who's the one to blame

   a farewell to the leaving - from those who have to stay
   for those who can't be with us here today
   please stay
   

figurine

sky above soil below
this is never gonna go
this is never gonna happen
this is clearly out of scope

soil below sky above
aerosols that make you cough
where sun won't ever hit the ground
and traffic makes a whirring sound
--
pumping gas through my veins
lifeless eyes behind the panes
and the smell of gasoline
surround the frontside figurine

straight ahead stay aside
from this magic carpet ride
from this hood ornament
concrete walls that have no end

    someone turned off the gravity the traffic floating silently
    one second stretching out from wall to wall
    have you seen my figurine, my screaming universe routine
    grinding to a standstill while i fall

    i'm falling...

sky around off the ground
far below faint chilling sound
air is clear, and so am i
[...]
sky around off the ground
far below faint chilling sound
air is clear, and so am i
here it goes - my last - goodbye

    someone turned off the gravity the traffic floating silently
    one second stretching out from wall to wall
    have you seen my figurine, my screaming universe routine
    grinding to a standstill while i fall

    i'm falling...
   

musik nervt

    ist das der ruhm den du gesucht hast?
    ich hoffe damit wirst du froh
    und alle wünschen alles gute
    danke, glückwunsch, ebenso
 
        ist das der ruhm?
        ist es all das wovon du träumst
        ist das der ruhm?
        weißt du was du damit versäumst?
       
    alles das was du gewollt hast
    auf dem silbernen tableau
    dein talent für ihren goldstaub
    und musik nervt sowieso
    
        die problemfabrik ist in deinem kopf
	die problemfabrik ist in deinem kopf
	die problemfabrik ist in deinem kopf
	das problem bist nicht du
	das problem bist nicht du

    und all die glaubwürdigen helden von der befreiungsagentur
    in ihren blankgeputzten schuhen
    ihr liegt auf einer wellenlänge, das problem daran ist nur
    sie sind der berg, das wellental bist du

	alles das was du gewollt hast
	auf dem silbernen tableau
	dein talent für ihren goldstaub
	und musik nervt sowieso (musik die nervt)
	musik die nervt
	musik die nervt
	musik die nervt
	musik die nervt (ist das der ruhm?)
	musik die nervt (ist es all das wovon du träumst)
	musik die nervt (ist das der ruhm?)
	musik die nervt (weißt du was du damit versäumst?)	
   

things that count

take the time grab the day
make it always in a way
that it seems if you knew - what you do

if you think that it counts
what you carry in your heart
just forget what you're told - this is new

    today - did it come into your mind
    (today) - that the world is not that kind
    as you're used to from your prefab home

    today - you are gonna be exposed
    (today) - to a realism overdose
    you should be glad that someone's doing this for you

so you think that you know 
how bad love can be to you
let it go, not a reason to bother

when you're alone and in bed
love can rear its ugly head
turn away and just leave it to the others

    (today) - when you're lonely and feel bad
    (today) - you're quite likely to forget
    it's even easier to feel this way for two

    (today) - you may feel lonely as a cloud
    (today) - you may feel lonely in a crowd
    but in the end you should be sure which are the things that count 

for you
