Track Name: World keeps turning
World keeps turning

She parked in front his window
Like a killer on the scene
She parked in front his window
Like a killer on the scene
Yeah, the whole world's a wildernes
He had only seen on t.v. screens
She knocked upon his window
He didn't hear with the t.v. on
She knocked upon his window
He didn't hear with the t.v. on
He saw the world turning and turning
But had never seen what was really going on

World keeps on turning
I hope it don't turn bad on you

Now the windows started to tremble
As she drove into the wild
Ah man, the windows started to tremble
As she drove into the wild
She knew the world would keep on turning
Said: "Good luck", and smiled
No more headlights through his window
Only shadows from the moon
No more headlights through his window
Lonely shadows from the moon
And though the world outside keeps hurting
It hurts most in your own little room

World keeps on turning
I hope it don't turn bad on you
Track Name: In the sun
In the sun

We're only sitting here in the sun
Looking around like nothing is wrong
Noone likes to get hurt don't you know
We can always save it for tomorrow

Sometimes
Oh, sometimes
I want to go far away
From here
Anytime, yeah
Anytime
Somewhere in the middle of the air

They always say: "Hey, it's not so bad"
Staring at the sky turning black
No one likes to hear the truth don't you know
No one wants you to go against the flow

Sometimes
Oh, sometimes
I want to go far away
From here
Anytime, yeah
Anytime
Somewhere in the middle of the air

Sometimes dark clouds hang in front my sight
With complaints and mockery
Sometimes I trip across the sky
Escape the pull of gravity
Sometimes I scream like a flame to the sun
And burn down everything I love
Sometimes I wonder: "How do you feel?"
Or am I just the only one

Only sitting here in the sun
Only sitting here in the sun
Only sitting here
Track Name: Room 101
Room 101

If we keep this secret
Hidden in our minds
Let's stay up all night getting high
Tomorrow we'll just be friends
Hmmm
We can go some place
Where noone knows our names
Tomorrow the desolate wind will sweep
Down the crooked lanes
Hmmm

You spin in circles round my mind
You spin in circles round my mind

Tear down these walls
Blow up the whole damned town
Tomorrow we can pile the bricks
Build back our walls
Hmmm
Meet me anytime
In the middle of nowhere
We can lose our way
Tomorrow we'll disappear
Hmmm

You spin in circles round my mind
You spin in circles round my mind
Track Name: A million days
A million days

A million cups of coffee
Before I hit the road
Powder on my sleeve
And the usual load
Dark mirror shades
My mind still debates
And is certain all has come
To fade away
The world is still
One big factory
Just making things
To keep us happy

I have gone deeper underground
To a place where the sun never goes down
I still think of you a million times each day
I would love to come and visit you some day
You still whisper in my mind that it's okay

The smell of the seasons
Bring back memories
As I'm lazing down
The long lime lane
I always gaze
At ruined factories
Abandoned tracks
Where trains don't arrive or leave
No more lovers on the rooftops
No more pictures of he and she
Only frozen statues
On every street

I have gone deeper underground
To a place where the sun never goes down
I still think of you a million times each day
I would love to come and visit you some day
You still whisper in my mind that it’s okay
Track Name: Bad day in hell
Bad day in hell

Seen the dark crows fly in circles
Sreaming this land is condemned
So, we'd go a million miles
Down to the lowlands
No more words were ever spoken
Other than to wish us well
Nobody could sing the blues
Like I did that day in hell

One day I just started singing
And play at my own expence
The stars above the flamboyant tree
Were my only audience
All god's faithfull children
Recite their prayers well
But nobody could sing the blues
Like I did that day in hell

Darkened roads never fade
My eyes still often stare
Into some distant oblivion
Where all my ghosts still appear
I still see her standing at my window
I still hear her calling out my name
Nobody could sing the blues
Like I did that day in hell

See me standing at the microphone
I put my soul up for sale
But even I can't sing the blues
Like I did that day in hell
Track Name: Shadow man
Shadow man

Nobody home
Peaceful
They're all out in the Sodom night
Screaming
I am lost

All my friends
Call me
Shadow man
Mister shadow man they call me
I am lost
Forever

Teachers and preachers
Oh, they pray for me:
"Don't go there"
All the curches filled with choires sing the hymnes for someone to save me
I am lost
Forever

Nobody home
Peaceful
I am out in the lonely night
Drifting
I am lost
Forever

Lost forever
Goodbye
'cause I'm never ever
Coming home
Track Name: Leave the town
Leave the town

I have to leave the town for good today
I have to leave the town, 'cause I can not stay
I'm running away from my broken dreams
Life just ain't what it seems
I have to leave the town
I have to leave the scene

People in this place don't want me back
There's a lady I'm a leaving, it's kind of sad
A patient man I'll be one day
I'd lose my mind if I'd have stay
I have to leave the town
I have to go away

If you play with fire you're bound to get burned
'till the flames die down and the winds have turned
Now I'm gone not to return
What's left behind is left to burn
I have to leave the town
With a hard lesson to be learned

Oh, I'm going, I'm going,
I'm going, I'm going away

Me and this place go a long way back
The good times are gone and they won't come back
Things have changed and so it always goes
I'm going some place where no one knows
I have to leave the town
I'm going to where the wind blows

I'm sick and tired of shedding these tears
I'm sick and tired of the same old fears
I got a rock 'n' roll car, songs to play
Leave my cage in the land of pain
I have to leave the town
Won't let my soul be betrayed

Oh, I'm going, I'm going,
I'm going, I'm going away
Track Name: No more talk about the rain
No more talk about the rain

It's like running through the graveyard
Knowing that is where it ends
With nothing to live up to
And nothing to die for
All seems well
How we play our starring roles
Behind the curtain
There's a different show

No more talk about the rain

It's like standing at your post
With no dominion to defend
Sweeping desert floors
The world is a grain of sand
The unborn more worthy
Than the living and the dead
Never has it seen
All the malice that we've bread

No more talk about the rain
Track Name: Oh the moon
Oh the moon

It took twenty years to find out
I lost my way to your heart
Took plenty tears to cry out
We have grown apart
It was hard for me to write this song
Will be hard for you to sing a long
Sounds like howling at the moon

Oh, the moon
Oh, the moon

Milk breast the pillow chest
Mothers' milk did taste the best
Mothers are no ordinary women
They are sacred, they are blessed
Once you find out she's only human too
It's scary to know she could be that cruel
Feels like howling at the moon

Oh, the moon
Oh, the moon

I thought for sure she knew before
In glazed houses never slam the door

Image of my archetype
Broken after her suicide
Intimacy was eternal bliss
Now it's just a Judas kiss
Remain in debt, maintain her pride
Only talk about the sunny side
And I'm still howling at the moon

Oh, the moon
Oh, the moon
Track Name: Requiem
Requiem

I don't want to sing this song
But it must be done
Before you're gone
I want you to know
How I'll feel when you're gone
Somewhere far away
From me

I see your face fixed like stone
There's noone home
Where should I go
I'll never find you in the hollow
Of all the places we used to go
But you're still here
Instilled in me
Until I go

I don't know how you'll take this song
But it must be done
Before you're gone
I've never seen you cry
Did you used to cry like me
When it hurt
Just as bad
Like I do now

I know you'll have no stone
Where I can go
Cry and morn
We'll never meet again
Oh, please open your eyes
Don't leave me
On my own
In this crazy world
