Track Name: SIT AND ENJOY
1. SIT AND ENJOY

Sit down and enjoy
Old man young boy
It´s time to see
The harder still

It´s time to think
Why don´t run a risk
We´re still alive
Never born to die

You´ll never know
What´s going on
Don´t rush, don´t go
It´s time for the show

Sit and enjoy how it goes
It's time to sit and let your imagination flow
Sit and enjoy if it's right or wrong
It's time to sit and forget about your loans

Sit and enjoy: time is gold
It's time to sit and forget when you were drowned
Sit and enjoy, feel at home
It's time to sit and decide by your own... Oh oh oh

Mind is like a parachute: you should only use it when it's opened
When you have nothing to lose you will never let your dreams be stolen
Try to get the best of you, don't turn on your TV very often
Even if you get the blues, even if you feel your heart is broken
Track Name: YOUR FATHER HE DON'T LIKE ME
Here I am jumping out your window
Running with the trousers in my hands
Your dad in on my reviewmirror
Shooting on the glasses of my van.

I couldn't take my personal belongings
My leather boots, my wallet and my hat
I'll have to go back any other morning
I hope that I don't have to run so fast

We spent the greatest night together
But I thought you were living by your own
There was no way I could imagine
You were the daughter of my boss

I thought that you could keep a secret
I'm sure your father didn't see my face
I went back home and I received a letter
I'm about to loose my job

CHORUS

Then I went back to take my assets
I heard your dad was working out of town
Your stepmom looked at me over her glasses
with my hat in a nightgone

And now your father he don't like me
And I'm not only gonna loose my job
I'm pretty shure I'll have to leave this town
He's after me and he's coming with the cops

And now your father he don't like me
He's waitin' with a shotgun by my door
He's furious and becoming my worst nightmare
I don't know if I'll see you anymore
Track Name: AN ILLUSTRATOR
We saw frozen summits and the clouds running uphills
We crossed over the mountains the fields tickled by winds
We climbed always singing all these old-time melodies
Playing there til the last cloud disappeared

You taught me how to enjoy every little thing we got
Sometimes we came back and we talked in your front door
You played while I drew like I never did before
Then I thought that was the place where I belonged

But now I remember everything
Now I'm recalling northern winds

Now this old time's vanished and I'm just working down here
The tedious city rumble's the only thing that I can hear
Your music is gone, then I feel that I'm in fear
But I calm down drawing while I hide my tears

But now I remember everything
Now I'm recalling northern winds
Track Name: KING ROBERT'S
When he wakes up in the morning he just takes his magic wand
Pulls up suspenders and takes “all out of a hat”*
Wake up! Stand up! King's back in town!
KING ROBERT IS THE MAN!

When his heart is full of stitches, it shines with bright red light
His house is a palace made of black diamond cards
Not only lawyers and painters can sweep red into black!
KING ROBERT IS THE MAN!

I heard of him in Thailand, i saw him in Vietnam
Show up in Barcelona and play with fire
Speak old swiss languages and run the bill of the bar!
C'mon ya' folks and fellas! I've heard he's back!

When the queen of hearts or diamonds is in the other side
His life is a game played with double backed cards
Wake up! Stand up! King's back in town!
KING ROBERT IS THE MAN!

He's kinda working magic, can make you shrink away,
He faces the music and calls a spade a spade
Jokers and preachers are always the same
BUT KING ROBERT IS THE MAN!

Turn on your radio! I heard this guy is back in town!
Don't let your eyes move slow! Try to keep your wallet safe and sound!

He'll never loose, you'll never know!
He got the blues, I gotta go!
Do it again, buddy! just one more show!
Wake up stand up! He's back in town!
KING ROBERT IS THE MAN (He's back in town!)KING ROBERT IS THE MAN!
Track Name: LOST TIME IS NEVER FOUND
Lost time is never found, I'm seeing your ghost
It's better to be a has been than a never was

Today I saw you again and how I cried
You made me feel so fine in your pretty eyes

The pain is growing in my mind
I can't come back and don't feel fine
And now it's too late to say goodbye

The meaning in your eyes, they never lie
The devil looks like that, I'm about to die

The pain is growing in my mind
I can't come back and don't feel fine
And now it's too late to say goodbye

The pain is growing in my mind
I can't come back and don't feel fine
And now it's too late to say goodbye
Every night I pay the price
I can't come back and don't feel fine (the pain is growing in my mind)
And now it's too late to say goodbye (the pain is growing in my mind)
Every night I pay the price (the pain is growing in my mind)
The pain is growing in my mind (the pain is growing in my mind)
Track Name: NOBODY CARES
Nobody cares if they are crying
Nobody'd care if they could die
Everyone thinks they shouldn't cross the line
Everyone thinks everything is fine

Nobody cares about ten thousand lies
Nobody cares cause they're not white
Nobody wants them either dead or alive
Nobody stops and wonder why

Nobody cares if they are crying
Nobody'd care if they could die
Everyone thinks they shouldn't cross the line
Everyone thinks everything is fine

Death, we don't care, the ocean is full of it
If you don't understand dry the tears from the sea
But now is the time don't look the other way

Drowned by hopes they´re loosing their faith
I ain´t gonna hide I am rising up hate
Someone you know should be burning in hell

CHORUS

Nobody cares if they are crying
Nobody stops and wonder why

Nobody cares if they are crying
Nobody'd care if they could die
Nobody cares if they are crying
Nobody stops and wonder why
Track Name: WAIT AND RISE
How could one single seed sprout in the snow
with the threats of frozen winds and hungry crows?
In the battle for a place to come alive,
Is the endurance the answer not to die?

Shall the weather change and the sun start to show?
Would this be the time to emerge and try to grow?
Is the strenght all what you need to take deep roots,
overcome any other winter and then bloom?

If you never felt weak you'll never be strong
with colorful leaves and an old big trunk not to fall
Let the birds live in your branches! Let them be!
What one day were hazards are now a gift...

Let the birds live in your branches! Let them be!
What one day were hazards are now a gift...
Track Name: OUTSIDE THE LAW
I´m a man that´s always on the search
Just an outcast that will never be blessed
Lost on the paths of justice and truth
I must admit I´ve got nothing to loose

I don´t trust anyone who comes along my way
´Cause all the good times have been swept away
My shadow longs to get away from my feet
I must admit I´ve got nothing to win

Carry my sins and a bag full of debts
To run and hide is just another game to play
So empty and barren are the ways of man
I´m bound to runaway every now and then

Like a driftwood I´ve got nowhere to go
But I can take care of anyone I know
I think I´m capable of the best and the worst
I´ll die run over by this iron horse

Chorus

And I´ll die outside the law...
Yes I´ll die outside the law...
Track Name: I WILL NEVER LET YOU DOWN
I WILL NEVER LET YOU DOWN

Down... I will never let you down
We don't know by now
But I will never let you down

Remember when we used to play, whistling winds took us back to the ground
You didn't care about my mistakes but you had to move away from town
Even when the time had gone I knew you'd never let me down
And even when your heart has broken apart I'll never let you down

Chorus

All those promises we made haven't gone but now I just can't find
That old tree that still remains has no leaves but I know it's alive
The flowers and the smell that brings the wind reminds me that old taste
I can see the pain under your skin but it doesn't have my name

Down... I will never let you down
We don't know by now
But I will never let you down...
But I will never let you down...
But I will never let you down...
But I will never let you down.
Track Name: MOUNTAIN TALE
Well, I listen to the old ones and the stories they tell
About a lady that lived on that hill
She rose up four children and she did pretty well
And they lived with the man of her dreams.

The 6th of November a cold kept her in bed
And he went for some vines in the woods
She couldn't hear well the last words he did say
About the winter and the shadows of the moon

She stayed with the children ten decades or so
And they never returned anywhere
Since then only six mountains had been touched by the snow
Not as bright as the white of her hair
Track Name: THE THIEF AND THE COP
Can tell what's true or false and I can do it by my own
You take adventage of my work, it's something that I've always known
Figures never lie but liars shouldn't figure all the time
Once a friend told me: "you'd better keep your enemies by your side"

If you wish another one to keep your secrets safe and sound
You'd better keep'em yourself and stop spreading your shit around
And when hearingsay you're acting like a liar anyway
You should stop pretending, your life is not a fairy tale

Nothing runs faster than the truth
Holding the ladder is the thing you do
That was even since we played the thieves and the cops

We all know you're hiding behind different masks
And d'you know what? I got you, man
So you won't do it again...

I rather be the thief than the cop
I rather be the thief than the cop
I rather be the thief than the cop
I rather be the thief than the cop...
Track Name: SWEET LULLABIES
Sweet lullabies while I'm seein' you I keep calm
Give me sweet lullabies, there're no worries in your nap
Give me sweet lullabies with my hands tickling your back
Give me sweet lullabies when your mind has gone so far...

Sweet lullabies when there's nothing here to fear
Give me sweet lullabies feel the winds through the oak tree
Give me sweet lullabies singing little birds melodies
Give me sweet lullabies flying with your angel wings

Sweet lullabies feel myself standing by
Give me sweet lullabies while the moon is shining bright
Give me sweet lullabies, folding stars are the tears of the night
Give me sweet lullabies, close your eyes, relax and smile.

Sweet lullabies, sweet lullabies, sweet lullabies...
