Track Name: Parading Shoes
Here's one thing no one's talking about
How did things go wrong when everything is alright?!
Everything is alright.
It's no one's fault when there's no one to blame
So just sit tight and keep playing the game
Keep playing the game.


Am I parading in my parading shoes
Am I parading in my parading shoes
Am I parading in my parading shoes
Am I parading in my parading...

Now it's time to think twice about everything you do
'bout everything you do.
Life is tough so get rough if you wanna make it through.
Do you wanna make it through?
I got the fame
I got the girl
I got the money
I got the Blues
Am I parading in my dancing shoes?
Am I dancing?

Am I parading in my parading shoes
Am I parading in my parading shoes
Am I parading in my parading shoes
Am I parading in my parading...
Track Name: Something In The Water
There Must be something in the water, Mama.
There Must be something That I can't see.
There Must be Something in the Water, Mama.
Something there that's killing me.

There Must be something in the water, Mama.
There Must be something That I can't see.
There Must be Something in the Water, Mama.
Something there that's killing me.

There's Something in these bloody waters.
Something there that I can't see.
There's Something in these bloody waters.
Something there that's killing me.

There Must be something in The water, Mama.
Cause I've been drinking free.
I've been drinking for so long
From these waters, Mama .
Something there that's killing me.

There's Something in these bloody waters.
Something there that I can't see.
There's Something in these bloody waters.
Something there That's killing me.
Track Name: Howling at the sun
I'm a man of need, I'm a man of misery, I'm a man of love.
I used to be a man of faith but now I don't believe in god.
I'm a man of many thing but I'm never a man of one.
I'm a man of me, I'm a man of you, but I'm a man of no one.

You think there's order in the pack, You think you could be someone.
you think: "man they got my back, so I don't need anyone".
I used to be like you, now I'm like everyone.
You, you're just like me, the moon is full and you're howling at the sun.
Track Name: I won't tell
Never been to Vietnam, I never fought the war.
Didn't know that living in the city can be such a bore.
One guy plays the trumpet and two girls play the drums.
They think it's pretty clever, but I think it's pretty dumb.
The more I know about tomorrow, the less I care about today.
And I've never been so sick in my life.

The people on the streets, they act like fools.
People on the streets, they try to look cool.
Every girl's fashion and everybody's drunk.
Every man has passion some keep it in the trunk.
Some sink to depression, others only smile.
And I've never been so sick in my life.


And I know all about the world my friend, I do and I won't tell.


I'm a very young man, I'm just twenty five years old.
But I've got all the answers, Yeah I know it all.
I never claimed to be some kind of god.
Yeah I'm just skin & bones, I'm just flash & blood.
It may upset you every once in a while.
To know that you've been living, living in a lie.
But ever since I've known and until the day I die.
I've never been so sick in my life.

And I know all about the world my friend, I do
All I know about the truth my friend, I know, but I won't tell!

I've never been so sick in my life.
Track Name: Swim this ocean
I didn't know it's a meter of fashion.
I always thought that it was quite clear.
I didn't know that some things of passion.
Can easily become a thing of last year.

Me I was always guided by feelings.
Now I'm brought down by the feeling I fear.
Let's have a round for the things that I'm missing.
So come lady luck and kiss me my dear

Oh, you've got to swim this ocean.
You dug the hole and filed it with tears.
And oh, you've got to swim this ocean.
Make your way through, year after year.
Year after year.

Me I was blind & so optimistic
it took me some time but now I see clear
Let's have a round for me and my misses
So come lady luck and kiss me my dear

and, Oh, you've got to swim this ocean.
You dug the hole and filed it with tears.
And oh, you've got to swim this ocean.
Make your way through, year after year.
Year after year.
Track Name: On the road
Now won't you place your head upon my shoulder
you look sad.
You need to cry your hart out, hope I won't be sorry.
It's O.K.
I've been traveling on so long it's hard to see you every time
It's been a while but I'm sure we'll meet again some other time.
Some other time.


And don't you cry it's true I thought it through and through.

Some time's again.
If only you knew you'd think it too and say goodbye.

Won't you lay your head down on this pillow,
It's for you.
I got it from the last place Where I thought of you.
And I won't be traveling on, Won't be traveling without you,
any more.
You see it's way to hard for me to think about you.
On the road.

And don't you cry it's true I thought it through and through.
Some time's again.
If only you knew you'd think it too and say goodbye.

and say goodbye.
Track Name: Between understanding & salvation
On my way to understanding
I met a man who spoke my language
At first my heart filled up with grace
But then he said a dreadful saying:
"If we enjoy today oh then tonight we just might make it,
But tomorrow we're all damned to Hell
Yeah tomorrow, man we're all damned to Hell.


And if we're gonna die tomorrow
It's not fair that I'm alone today.
It's not fair that I'm alone today.

On My way back to Salvation
I met a girl, she spoke my language.
At first my heart filled up with fear
But then she said a joyful saying:
Said: If we enjoy today, oh then tomorrow won't mean a thing.
And tonight we just might make it.
Yeah tonight honey, I bet we will.

And if we're gonna die tomorrow
I'm so glad that we met up today.
I'm so glad that we met up today.
I'm so glad that we met up today.
Track Name: The birds & the bees
Hot night in an Eastern European city
Flies are Zig-Zagging in the air
Over My head, Over My head

The hangman he comes over.
his face is all covered in black.
He says: "My job is not to Kill you, It's to guide you to the end"

To the end.
To the end.


Don't drag me down.
My feet on the ground.
Just like the Birds & The Bees.
I like it up here!

Somebody calls to the preacher: "can you tell it once again?"
But I say "No, I had enough".
I just want to meet my friends.
just as the flap goes down I go flying in the air.
Just then I can see you crying:
"Why can't you stay?
Why can't you stay?"

Oh now,
Don't drag me down.
Oh, My feet on the ground.
Just like the Birds & The Bees.
Fuck!
I like it up here!
Track Name: Chance
You treat faith like a game of chance.
You see chance as if it was your fate.
You don't believe in Coincidence.
You treat faith as your only chance.

And I say:
“Take me back to where it all began” .


You see angels I see righteous men.
You see prophets I see endless scams.
You think the world has some cosmic plan.
I'm just waiting for it all to end.



And I say:
“Take me back to where it all began.
Take me back to when it all began”.

A time will come for us don't be afraid .
a time will come for us to understand.
and when it comes I hope you'll see my friend, why...
I'de like to have a chance to start again

And I say:
“Take me back to when it all began.
Take me back I wanna understand.
Take me back to where it all began”.
when it all began.
Track Name: Left it all behind
Now it seems you left it all behind you
Now it seems you left it all behind you
Now it seems you left it all behind you
Now it seems you left it all behind you


you're walking on down little roads of happiness
Didn't I see you here before with teary eyes like broken glass?
didn't I ask you then: How does it feel to be on your own?!
didn't I help you then to realize you're not alone?!

Now it seems you left it all behind you
Now it seems you left it all behind you
Now it seems you left it all behind you
Now it seems you left it all behind you

Can you see me? I am happy now, I'm standing tall and free
I don't need you or want you, I'm on my own and there's no stopping me.
but then again what was the plan?! what have I accomplished in the end?!
I guess it really wasn't up to you.
If I had another chance I might have done it all again,
I might have changed a little thing or two.
baby now...

Now it seems I left it all behind me
Now it seems I left it all behind me
Now it seems I left it all behind me
Now it seems I left it all behind me

Now it seems I left it all behind me
Now it seems I left it all behind me
Now it seems I left it all behind me
Now it seems I left it all behind me
