Slow down... Take your breath Slow down... Not in a hurry Nothing ever turns out the way it should Life is never as perfect as it could Let it chill... Maybe then it will No one's ever as gentle as he should No one's ever as friendly as he could Slow down... No need to be a scientist or an engineer To see what's going on around here All sorrow and pain is just tears in the rain No need to complain... It's all tears in the rain Let go... Clean your heart Let go... Enjoy the ride No one's there if you had one call Nobody there to cushion your fall Let go... A hellish noise you'd never control No applause in a wide empty hall Slow down... Everyday they're ringing a bell Everyday they're crying a river This life is heaven and hell but in a cosmic scale it's all just... All sorrow and pain is just tears in the rain No need to complain... It's all tears in the rain

There was a time I really did go way too far Did all the wrongs that I could have done There was a time I was nothing but a ghost Spooking around my town I learned how to see in the dark I learned how to see in the bright light Learned how to say that it's alright I learned how to keep from the doorway I learned how it feels when you're away Learned how to say that it's okay That I am not the one... I am too far gone There were days I was my worst enemy I used to drink myself nearly blind There were days that hardly branded my whole being Although I would there will be no rewind Couldn’t say hello - Couldn’t let you go Couldn’t stay alone And you pick me up before you let me fall Nothing else I would have done I learned how to see in the dark I learned how to see in the bright light Learned how to say that it's alright I learned how to keep from the doorway I learned how it feels when you're away Learned how to say that it's okay That I am not the one... I am too far gone I would hurt you way to bad - Hurt you way too bad Too far gone... I won't cry... I won't cry... I learned how to see in the dark I learned how to see in the bright light I learned how to keep from the doorway I learned how to live when you're away Learned how to say that it's okay That I am not the one... That I am not the one... I am too far gone

Yet How Far? 04:20
You, you make the angels cry You, and every word you speak You are the wing of a bird that’s trying to fly around the world You make the roses feel ashamed And your eyes make the tide rise and rise How long? How long is it left to watch the sun rise? Rise and set. Summer turns to fall How, how much? How much is your heart going to take? If your soul’s a season Fall turns to winter still You, you make every cloud cry You let every plant die You make every child smile and take all the life at once You lay the haze down on her face And fill the world with your grace How long? How long is it left to watch the sun rise? Rise and set. Summer turns to fall How, how much? How much is your heart going to take? How long? How long? Fall turns to winter still You, you make the angels cry You, and every word you speak And you are the wing of a bird that’s trying to fly around the world You make the roses feel ashamed And your eyes make the tide rise and rise How long? How long is it left to watch the sun rise? Rise and set. Summer turns to fall How, how much? How much is your heart going to take? If your heart’s a season Summer turns to fall

The Letter 05:47
Cold as I’m arriving In the streets that I’m hiding I’m awake for way too long Ticking like a time bomb Breathing like a whore Letting all the pain out Taking on for a walk on the moon Wish I could talk to I’m a man got to talk to You are the woman I would talk to I’m taking my walk on the dark side of the moon Made me older This blues made me older These blues have made me older You know this blues made me older I may dance a little bit more When is devil on a side of? What the hell I want to be, want to see Ever get you, enemy Never minded you baby, hope you don’t mind me Got to dance one more on the dark side of the world It’d get you down you will see, going down the enemy I’ll be far away but baby you’re still with me Cold as my heart gets, buried in the city Longing for, way too long Tears I’m crying See the tide rising Flowing like a river Flowing like a river I may dance a little bit more When is devil on a side of? What the hell I want to be, want to see Ever get you, enemy Never minded you baby, hope you don’t mind me Got to dance one more on the dark side of the world It’d get you down you will see, going down the enemy I’ll be far away but baby you’re still with me

Black Queen 05:09
Black kiss from the shady corners of this “Blackburn Street” I wanted to drive but I’m always going by feet Black dawn and a black black dress Now she wears my soul and she hides it in a deep black hole Guns for hire to make its victims sweat and quiver To make ‘em scream and yell in a … Hot blue metal and an everlasting firing hell I know why it never ever pays to try I got my fury loaded, this is life reloaded on a low low ground Set me on “H” - Cover me in rage ‘Cause I don’t wanna go home Don’t wanna stay alone till the break of dawn Black Queen - With a black black smile you’re coming on Let your dices rolling on and on Black Jack, black widow, black bone Black sea and a black black eye She comes around whenever, wherever, however she wants to come around Black Tease, she’s like black ice coming with this cold black breeze She pore me a black hand and she gave me black love Let me standing on a black ground She’s Death from above She can be a dog, she can fly like a black bird No one would ever deny, no one could ever decide Not even Mr. Johnny Cash, he had to carry this heavy black on his back And ended up wearing only black She came around like a black cat, bring you bad luck I’m like a body r-r-resting in the Leeds Got my pitch black sheets and a pitch black heart Got everything I need to fall in love with the Queen Set me on “H” - Cover me in rage ‘Cause I don’t wanna go home Don’t wanna stay alone till the break of dawn Black Queen - With a black black smile you’re coming on Let your dices rolling on and on Black Jack, black widow, black bone

Mama told ya how much she loves you Why did you go that far away? South-West, oh California Why did you go that far away Grunge up the walls Now pop that bottle up in your hand Same face, old place, new grace, dirt face I don't wanna think no more La mierda i todo el dolor Na, na na ... It may all take you far away Na, na na ... It may all take you far away Take good care of your feet my friend O' they may take you far away One day I will follow you my friend And hope we get too far away Na, na na ... N' I hope we get too far away Na, na na ... Na, na na ... N' I hope we get too far away Break through the boundaries And nothing can hold you back I break through the boundaries And nothing can hold me back We break through the boundaries And nothing can hold us back We break through the boundaries Never never coming back

I Get Drunk 03:27
Every time when I’m feeling down I’m going out n‘going to town And gonna have a good good time Every time I see you smile Upon the street up on a while It’s been a while since you’ve been down I guess it’s been a while since you’ve been down When I’m lone – I get drunk – Yeah I get drunk When I’m lone – I get drunk – Yeah I get drunk When I’m lone – I get drunk – Yeah I get drunk When I’m lone – I get drunk – Yeah I get drunk Stand upon the bridge You wanna jump but never did And now I know that you ain’ t got no balls Said you wanna quit - You gotta be quick Now you feel so broke and sick Now you wanna jump my one I said baby don’t you come alone When I’m lone – I get drunk – Yeah I get drunk When I’m lone – I get drunk – Yeah I get drunk When I’m lone – I get drunk – Yeah I get drunk When I’m lone – I get drunk – Yeah I get drunk

I'm going out but I don't feel like partying Tonight I'm still I'm going out I watch the street and watch how the rain begun to fall The fancy cars and the poverty on the avenues Is where the city bleeds I'm out this game I hate my life I hate this world But I can't let it burn Power plants and the traffic's what's left of this glorious memory Concrete jungles they tease me with their lights but they're all just full of misery I love the birds I love the breeze I love the way they gently call My life is good - My life is true My life is pure but my skies are deep-dark-blue I wanna simplify my life and avoid the things that steal my time 'Cause, looks like the snow is gonna fall - is gonna put me asleep Power plants and the traffic's what's left of this glorious memory Concrete jungles they tease me with their lights but they're all just full of misery

Moving On 04:52
Quite, quite funny How it all can turn into a now or never situation All strange constellations You, you know I’ve never asked for much Even though I’m asking you not to consider me gone The time has come… Moving on Moving on… For time I should have shared with you All the efforts, misery and working poor Made me insecure And you too You know I share your dreams Settle down, having kids and make you my wife Let love build a home, the time has come… Moving on Moving on… It may break my will And I’d regret breaking all the bands that held me still Leaving me quite nothing But shattered dreams that flow through my hands It might leave me as a broken man And I’ll hardly have to understand You’re long gone… Moved on Moving on…
13.
Your love and your kindness All have you sacrificed And its losing and standing tall I wouldn’t even do a bit of it at all I won’t leave it today I won’t leave it too soon Nover gonna be… Never gonna lose… Sober My mind’s got a spin My mind’s got a spin You’re on top and I … Ain’t gonna win… Sober Goodbye, goodbye… It doesn’t hurt as half as much as I thought Goodbye distance… The word we do not speak when I’m sober… If I really stay sober All ease of access And all the life I want so much And I’m begging for change I’m begging for change oh dead God knows I hate it that much But I need it that much… Got that fear hanging on my mind right now… Right here… Goodbye, goodbye… It doesn’t hurt as half as much as I thought Goodbye distance… The word we do not speak when I’m sober… If I really stay sober
14.
This silence This silence now My heart breaks to pieces Cause I don't want you to let me go It is the road that gets us where All lovers would despair It's not fair I'm sorry… I'm sorry… 'Couldn’t even say how much Vanish... Vanish… To the air that's full of love I wore fast to love and not forget for this regret And I try so hard to wake up But this nightmare finds no end And I feel I'm sleeping since days Oh I'm sleepless again Dillinger I travel With the boat across the sea Spoil me off Snatch the skin right off my bone Sleepless once again I stagger through the nights Alone without you And I try so hard to wake up But this nightmare finds no end And I feel... Loosing you or getting lost I'm sleepless again And tonight the heartache is on mine No career worth the sorrow No career...And worth the tears There's no way To explain the pain it causes Is there... Is there a way to say I want you still Take me on your dreams Let's fall asleep together Take my hand... Fly across the land in my dreams
15.
I am glad I’m so glad to know you Dear friend Dear partner in life Does this life treat you almost the way it should And hunting you no more And when you’re lonesome When you’re lonesome You can call me at any time I look at you And see myself somehow Then we fall in love just like we said I’m with you till the end When you’re down When you’re down and hang your head No one’s around No space your feet to pled Make up your head and go to sleep Straight up to the end
