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

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

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

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!

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)

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

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...

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...

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.

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

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...

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...
