Twisted Animals

DEAR GREY SKY

Dear grey sky
They say you only cover the blue sky
But they are idiots you know

It's an ordinary monday afternoon
And unfortunately
I stopped smoking

Dear grey sky
I like to watch you
Then i do other things
And you're still there

And if someone says
This town is beautiful
Under a grey sky
Then it is

Dear grey sky
You never push it
I might go for a walk
Or maybe not

It's getting dark now
The world is all we have
I never said that
In a song


 
INTO THE WOODS


When you went into the woods
Why did you do it
With your worn out navy boots
I thought you would blew it

It‘s so easy to pretend
That trees are like people
In the end

When you went into the woods
I stayed in the city
Though the weather was nice
I started to feel shitty

It‘s so easy to pretend
That animals will friend you
In the end
And I have to admit
It would be cool if they did

When you went into the woods
You wrote “back to the roots”
On your shirt
When you went into the woods
You wore a hat that made you look like a bird

And I couldn’t decide
Should I laugh
Or should I cry

When you went int the woods
I went to see a doctor
His name was Dr. Schulz
And he was from Vienna
He said that my subconscious
Was to conscious to be true
And I said that I lost
All my unconsciousness to you
When you went into the woods


 
NOT HAPPY

When he came home from work
He didn’t know what to do
So he put his hands on the table
The way he had learned it at school

But nobody had a question
And nobody let it ring
So he finally jumped on the table
And he finally started to sing

I am not happy
I’m tired and I hate my job
It makes me sad to look out of the window
It’s a mess and I want it to stop

It was a lovely summer evening
And everybody took his chance
There was kissing and talking
Laughing and walking
There was listening to eurodance

So he went through his closet
There wasn’t much to go through
But he found a tight orange t-shirt
And he found some shiny white shoes

He felt ready to make it happen
And the mirror said that he was
He even discovered his old hat
The one with the shimmering stars

And then he hit the street
And he became part of the crowd
The summer-breeze blew a smile in his face
And the music was playing loud

And this is where we lost him
Cause we had to lose him somewhere
So we raised our glass to his story
And we made a high-five in the air

Cause he was not happy
He was tired and he hated his job
It made him said to look out of the window
It was a mess and it had to stop


 
TWISTED ANIMALS

Her name was distant water
His name was sunny street
They lost their hearts in Venice
Cause Venice is hard to beat

They looked at dying castles
Fead old bread to the birds
And every time they turned to each other
They were running out of words

Old bread to the birds
Old bread to the birds

Sounds like another story
A story from ancient times
Where people did watching and walking
Where people talked in rhymes

Her name was distant water
His name was sunny street
They lost their hearts in Venice
Cause Venice  is hard to beat

Hard to beat
Hard to beat

Oho
The city slowly drifts back into water
Oho
Sunlight is burning holes into our eyes
Oho
We strawl around like twisted animals
Oho
In disguise


 
I ADORE YOU


I wrote a song for you
With lyrics and chords
About stuff like
How much i adore you

I pictured myself
Sitting in your room
And i saw you watching me
Playing it for you

It goes like
Lalala i adore you
It goes like
Nanana this song is for you

I tried to call you
The other day
But i couldn't reach you
And i felt alone

I took a walk
Through your neighbourhood
And i wrote a song
On my way back home

It goes like
Lalala this song is not for you
But it's better than the other one
That says i adore you

I adore you
I adore you
I adore you


 
NICER PERSON

I guess he was
A nicer person
In an early demo version
Of this song

I guess he was
A nicer person
In an early demo version
Of this song

It‘s so sad
That he turned back
And none of us
Could do a thing

Indifference
That‘s how it started
No happy heart
Not broken hearted
You see his face
Soon to forget it
You talk to him
Soon to regret it

There‘s no doubt
He sucks you out
And none of us
Could do a thing

He fades away now
While we sing


 
SLUDGE

I never find no history
No history in my mind
Feelings pass and pictures last
Landscapes from behind

I never see no destiny
Climbing up that hill
While I whistle two-tone-melodies
On my window sill

And oh oh no
They tore me out
And said let‘s go
I’m made of sludge

I never build no building
That someone might call stunning
I have no disciples waiting
For my second coming

People seem to look at me
As if I’m always there
I like to smile at strangers
And I have dark-brown hair

And oh oh no
They tore me out
And said let‘s go
I’m made of sludge

And I am made of water
I am made of sand
And I am made of something
That allows me to pretend

And oh oh no….


 
THE WINDOW

When we were young there was a fight
Between real and artificial
Both sides lost and signed the papers
With their meaningless initials

And now we can do everything
And everything is cool
This rooms create intimacy
So why you‘re acting like a fool?

But if you open up the window
There will be another window
Guess I need a hammer honey
To find out from where the wind blows

And then you called me to say: Dear
There‘s no way left to disappear
I lowered my voice and I said: Son
In the end there‘s always one

So we go on and cook our meals
And tell each other how it feels
To be so fuckin well connected
Did you check that cat?
Oh I thought I did

But if you open up the window
There will be another window
Guess I need a hammer honey
To find out from where the wind blows

P.S. Let‘s bring the choir in
I want them to stand straight and sing
Raise their voices cut the swing
Forgetting is not forgiving
Forgetting is not forgiving
Forgetting is not forgiving
