Track Name: evil eyes
Evil Eyes
Never take a look right through – those evil eyes
Better pull me back into – like i was buried alive

When I was an uptown city-light-shaker
Someone please pick me up to my Maker
Hold me down for a second in a seat
Cause I set myself on fire like 8 days a week
And I kicked back blinded by a murder full of crows
Like a rat catched to clap watch out if it goes
Heart ripped like a son of a bitch
I kept footstompin‘on it and then/until I ditch
and I resolved myself to hide away like a thief in the night
So keep your arms crossed Dear cause I’d done you no right no

Your fist took me by surprise like a sheep in a wolves disguise
Early in the morning

Well, you bothered me to love you good
I wondered how Dear, I wondered if I could
Offer you a helping hand
To let loose lean your heavy head
To my wounded shoulder
Seek shelter from the pouring rain
It all happened before Dear, it’ll happen again
You’ve been blinded by the light
Track Name: heart.SICK.heart
Heart.SICK.heart
I got no place in this city I can call a home
I got no girl by my side I can call a friend
While asking you: „ Boy oh what went wrong?“
Why do you keep on watching when you know the end?
It‘s like a hit to the body no colours anymore
And I’m chasing through the streets like a ghost
While lying in this bed right next to her
I can’t decide what I hate the most

She said:
„Oh oh oh my faith was bust in a half“
Thats why I’m asking you to rip out my heartSICKheart.

There is a danger hiding in your voice
While whispering whistle blowing to my bleeding ear
Those words were meant to hit me
Cut me deep down oh that might be crystal clear
But it‘s hard to get the point of your blood red anger and we
Drifted away from what we were looking for
I caught this smile which was built for a stranger
And I’m pretty sure we’re never coming back to shore
Track Name: all the way back into the night
All The Way Back Into The Night

Pick me up – pull me through
Another night I spend sleepless on my own
Raindrops fallin‘ trippin‘ slippin‘ away – away
All them smilin‘ faces – filled with good intensions I know
But they are makin‘ me sick
And I forced myself to stay – force myself to

I‘m about to loose grip - I’m about to tumble around
Like a ghost for years
Drenched in blood – shattered by fear
It’s a cold out heart once split – by a better man
I caught myself lying – while saying „i don’t give a damn“
No way out to release my pain

I got comfortable to be stuck in my skin – waitin' for the rain to fall
Well/but don’t worry my dear I won’t ignore the sun at all
I got comfortable to be stuck in my skin – waitin' for the rain to fall
Well if I have been taken away by the flood
Heavens got a place for me!?

ALL THE WAY BACK INTO THE NIGHT
Pick me up pull me through another night I spent sleepless on my own
Get up get up get down
Stop pulling your fist to the ground
On the wrong side - Wasting time
…Once upon a time I kept holding my breath…
Track Name: pantera makes me smile all day
Pantera Makes Me Smile All Day

I kept my whole life searching for a real big deal well it - turned out to be a fight
I pulled my head through the wall never had hold tight to my anger
while all of my enemies - they step aside
You know I’d turn back time and fight for every moment
whether big or small instead of fighting my heart
And while you keep on telling words of wisdom to me myself and I
I watch all of them falling apart

I’ve been hated – all of my efforts they are going down the drain
long awaited – oh
I’ve been hated – I miss the comfort of being on my on
and I’ll put my arms around this heart of mine

then I started turning my back like I never thought I would
and all of my dreams they may‘ took you by surprise
my hands will break your neck like I know that they could
and a vulgar display of power is about to rise
and all of my split lips – and my grinded teeth
won’t make me stick to your good advise
‚cause all I need Dear – is another tune
That’ll help me to make it through the night

I put my arms I put `em around – around this heart of mine
No matter what all them idiots and conformists say
I keep on walking down the line
Track Name: only you
Only You

Only you – only you make my heart sing
What to say? What to do?

I remain restless from the very first night
We shared a moment I tried holding you tight
Hiding in the shades of those upper city flash lights
You spoke your heart out
I did as well there is no doubt
Two young hearts trying to forget about their past
But if you remember shedding tears and those shaking hands
We made promises which were built to last

If there is – anybody, anytime - trying to pull you down
No matter what Dear cause I’ll be around

`Promised you girl - while slightly turned into being your man -
I’m gonna care for you darlin there is nothing nothing that I can’t do
I want to give I want to take I want to die I need to - live with you
So ban all these cliche curses like „oh boy you are too young“
It makes me gasp for the very first breath of fresh air running in(to) my lungs
And gives me strength to pull `em all away – away

You know I’m stuck in a dream of being counter part and completion
And I believed in it for the true sense of the word
By the time I got up I was stabbed in my back - stabbed by a knife `called „getting away without getting hurt“

Only you – only you made my heart sing
Track Name: the taste of blood
The Taste Of Blood

Well Darling I’m alone
I got desperate because I’m on my own
The taste of sweat on my tongue reminds me of you
Smoking cigarettes in a row
Because I don’t know what to do
And I’m alone and I got desperate because I’m on my own
The taste of sweat on my tongue reminds me of you
Chain smoke and I don’t know what to do

And everybody says „you better give it up“ cause she is a one way track
And I remind myself of all the words she had spoken all of them beautiful facts
To pick up the flame and keep it going even though she is a one way track
And I remind myself of all the words she had spoken all of `em beautiful facts

Do you remember those nights all the kisses we shared
You said it’s true your touch was made for me don’t be scared
Now I wonder who? And I wonder why?
All of `em violent thoughts running in a circle and make me cry
And I’m alone – I got desperate because I’m on my own
The taste of blood on my tongue reminds me of you
Chain smoke and I don’t know what to do
Three months passed by I’m hanging in a death trapp
Desperately waiting for a change to come my Dear
But nothing serious is about to happen since you left for a while
Three months passed by I’m hanging in a death trapp
Desperately waiting for a change to come my Dear
But nothing serious is about to happen
Since she passed away with a smile
And now she is dead and gone
