clown


some things lurk beneath the surface they say they feel it deep inside

and the guard dogs they are sleepin’completely satisfied

 

you know when, where and why

how could I even try

as a dream you’re by my side

you are the love I hide

 

and I face my clown and I hear him say

let us throw our scores away

all get lost as a fadin’ light

and all we get is a morning sight

 

a gentle touch, a secret kiss

the moment’s gone and then I miss

to hang and twist above your endless ground I still can hear your fading sound

 

and I face my clown and I hear him say

let us throw our scores away

all get lost as a fadin’ light

and all we get is a morning sight

 

I face my clown and I hear him say

let us throw our scores away

all get lost as a fadin’ light

and all we get is a morning sight


me & you

 

black or white high or low

tonight my mind refuses to know

each friend I want to stay

goes round and round and fade away

 

there is a thought

kind of dark and blue

who can name the fear

between me and you

 

lights have gone, all got lost somewhere we still wander, we don’t care

my eyes are bleedin’, our hands in the air how could I be so unaware

 

it never leaves

when I want it to

the old simple play

between me and you

 

there is no hand

that leads me through

the selfmade gods

between me and you

dini wort

 

be mier deheime hangid

vell wälte woni ha met der

s’hät no vell me platz do

doch du besch nömm be mer

 

täg wärdid weder länger

nor no meh defür ond degäge

nochem winter chonnt de früelig

ech muss mers emmer weder säge

 

es sitzid all veruss ond

verzellid ehri gschechte

ech chasi doch ned phalte

alls wär kei platz me i mer inne

 

d’lüt gönd langsam hei

es wird still i de nacht

doch dini wort die bliibed

ich ha si sälber so starch gmacht

 

doch dini wort di bliibed

ich ha si sälber so starch gmacht


places we all hide

 

taking thoughts from afar

things get lost in the world we’ve made

my best friend, here you are

did you hear my final call

 

everywhere, endings, they stare

stare at what I begin

silent crimes, burn them all

keep in colours what we’ve ever done

     

it’s unspoken – it’s a distance to here

it’s unbroken – the phrase we all want to hear

 

it’s unspoken – it’s a distance to here

it’s unbroken – the phrase we all want to hear

 

round and round and round they go the places we all hide

round and round and round it goes the chaos deep inside

 

round and round and round they go the places we all hide

round and round and round it goes the chaos deep inside

sun

 

feelin’ the sun on it’s way

if I could I would stay

you just draw a line

and light up the fields, make them mine

 

you lay our pride aside

all of us want to grow

 

I feel so safe tonight

monsters fade, am I right

whether I lose or I win

things change anyway in the crowd I’m in

 

the thoughts I brought up

where never meant to stay

 

you left me far behind

with promises, made in my mind

a familiar smile, that’s all

nights allow us to fall

 

remember how to feel

what is fake and what’s real

a familiar smile that’s all

nights allow us to fall

nights allow us to fall


masterplan

 

nightmares or treasures time will tell

lend me your morning let me start again

try or lie or fade away

read in the papers what game we play today

 

give me your places, the promises you made

and you’ll get my notion, a world you’ll fail to save

where we give, who we love, and what we hide

why we fear and what we can, is it part of a masterplan

 

and you walk in

in my world of endless lines

and you come in

light the corners of my mind

 

I feel no ground but I feel your skin

a moment of a fall – another way to win

someone’s gonna hold me – someone’s gonna lie

and when we all stop breathing, another morning will know why

 

and you walk in

in my world of endless lines

and you come in

light the corners of my mind

 

and you walk in

in a room high and wide

and you stay in

never ever satisfied

never ever satisfied

where & why

 

your scent comes in

some sounds I know

but now it’s just made in, made in mind where are you, are you now

 

colours where important

yours and also mine

but now it’s just made in, made in mind where are you, are you now

 

everything is glowing

everyone is growing

why are you now

why are you now

why are you now

 

long-lost pictures are waiting anywhere

their contours are still there

but now it’s just made in, made in mind where are you, are you now

 

everything is glowing

everyone is growing

why are you now

why are you now

why are you now

secret

 

you want to know who I am

what I know and what I can do

I’ve lost myself in a shouting crowd I’ve even left my name behind

 

right or wrong as a perfect world who knows when and who knows why

I want to see me I want to show

I am the secret I’ll never know

 

you live in here

as a friend of my mind

as the feats I know

in places I hide

you live in here

in the palm of my hand

in all pictures I save

as the promises I gave

 

waste and plans, saints and friends no longer here by my side uncertainty the secret weight it shines and spreads bright and wide

 

you live in here

in the need of a thought

in a letter I receive

in the air I can breathe

in all ways I could choose

if I win or lose

as your friends on the screen

and as the world in between

new world

 

new world in here

it’s a spin we feel

I lay down my smile

my ground for years

 

my friend stay with me

in this distant land

they lurk and hurt, they sting

old maps I hold in hand

 

what has now begun

is just another way we’ve found

another place, another friend

and other lines that begin and end and other lines that begin and end

 

will you take them back

the things I understand

the little that they free

in someone else’s hand

 

what has now begun

is just another way we’ve found

another place, another friend

and other lines that begin and end and other lines that begin and end

openfield

 

let us whisper let us sing

take my hand and let us win

let them cry and let them bleed

let them be with all they need

 

let us cheat and let us hide

open field – warm and wide

let them fear and let them name

all the things that change and stay the same

  

things get out of hand

let’s get lost in a distant land

let them form up into lines

let them wait for awkward signs

 

let’s spin round, round that light

fireflies on their nightflight

let us whisper let us sing

take my hand and let us win

di vogu

(text livio andreina)

 

di vogu macht us din’re wält

was der ohni vogel fählt

dass der alles möglich esch

wenn’d so läbsch wie’d sälber besch

 

det chasch so sii eso wied besch

au wenn’s ganz denäbe isch

öb du schilisch oder spennsch

öb du staglisch oder singsch

 

hesch e vogu säg mer spinnsch

dass du das machsch wo du fendsch s’esch mi vogu das esch klar met däm läbt sich’s wunderbar

 

mängisch stell ich ihm s’bei

är god wäg lod mech elei

hei, wie esch de alles grau

wäg esch gälb, esch rot, esch blau

 

hesch e vogu säg mer spinnsch

dass du das machsch wo du fendsch s’esch mi vogu das esch klar met däm läbt sich’s wunderbar

 

jede seit dir was muesch mache

öb sölsch brüele oder lache

das esch rächt ond das esch schlächt nor was du machsch esch ned rächt!

 

hesch e vogu säg mer spinnsch

dass du das machsch wo du fendsch s’esch mi vogu das esch klar met däm läbt sich’s wunderbar
