Track Name: Into the Night
into the night I’m driving all day long
into the night I’m driving all day long
racing down the riddle road
meet me in the moorise grove
into the night I’m driving all alone

into the night
past the point of turnaround
into the night
someone throws a silent shout
breathing on the window pane
you ask if I can change the lane
that’s the least I can do
when radio waves get lost in drum beat of the rain
we jam a tune

into the night I’m driving all day long
into the night I’m driving all day long
miss you in the passenger seat
wait until dark & we will meet
whoever you are
into the night I’m driving all alone
Track Name: Razor Belly Dancer
Razor Belly Dancer
let's do a little swirl
take me for a ride girl
kidnap me to your world
it’s ruled by naïve melody

wooly cotton love
dip it in the red
your eyes are getting darker
as we linger in the bed
for way too long

Razor Belly Dancer
I know you shoot to kill
but when the game is over
i'll never cry a tear
if i do... hit me in the eye & dance

Razor Belly Dancer
you're all I ever need
you cut me in the face though
you're ripping all my teeth
...shake!

Razor Belly Dancer
never mind your kicks
but hey I'm like an old dog
so keep your fancy tricks & shake!

...you know that I won't dance

the razor's clean
the lights are off
the party's over...
I linger on
Track Name: Limbo
In a land of no one & nothing
at the foot of seven hills
there's a town of the broken-hearted people
who live in a dream
working for a ticket to get high
on a real flesh illusion
paying visits to the world of living
like ghosts in striptease rooms

I used to know a girl from Limbo
completely different kind
sexy little beast refusing to walk the purple line
every single night she went out
to climb the steepest of hills
her knees were bruises and scars
her eyes were ponds of tears

In Limbo we wait for a ride
In Limbo we wait for a sign
it never came & never will
sometimes there's nothing lef to do
but walk up the hill

I used to call her Ylajali
the real name no one knows
after she had disappeared
I found a little note:

In this place you have to peel your face off and feed it to the crows...
I have to go, I have to leave, I have to flee

In Limbo we wait for a ride
In Limbo we wait for a sign
it never came & never will
sometimes there's nothing lef to do
but walk up the hill
Track Name: Icarus
we’re born to be free
a beautiful dream
have you seen him fly?
into the light on the wings of fire

hey Mr. D
what do you mean?
why don’t you let me be
I’m going up. I want to touch the sun

come on. come on, love
the sky is calling you
we’re gonna make it

raving, raving the youth
leaving, leaving the roof
rising into the loom
breaking out of cocoon
to fly

by the side of the road
there goes a mystery man
he carries a bag
full of feathers and smell of wax

taking a ride to Tugela falls
gonna give it a one more shot
can’t stop...
it makes him feel alive

come on. hold your breath
is it a dream?
or just a fool with glued on wings

diving into the blue
howling, howling at the moon
riding, riding the swoon
breaking out of cocoon

to fly, fly la la lie… liar
Track Name: Circus People
all the circus people
even "Auguste the sad"
they jubilate
as if there was a reason
maybe the end of a war
no. nothing like that
and all the eyes shine up
with joy
a feeling that they're finally free
and no one...
no one gives a shit anymore
what comes tomorrow
what if there will be a dawn
when all the love is gone

and on the heavy horizon
there is a gathering storm
taking a roll
electric shivers go down the chapiteau spine
there goes the ringmaster's hat
off his head
into the sky
merde

and all the savages roar
and all the birds they sing
and all the dogs they howl
and howl
nothing in the scene is real
a preacher's doing his bluff
all the crossing and usual stuff
doesn't help, it won't help
merde
and then...

the tent goes up
in the air
like a kite
people are left naked and scared
on the ground
under the black ink of the raging sky...

and all the savages roar
and all the birds they sing
and all the dogs they howl
and howl
and howl

and all the children weep
and all the women sing
and the men just howl
and howl
and howl
Track Name: Passerby
I'm leaving again tonight
don't ever cry a tear for me darling
get rid of the colours
make it all go, make it all fade
I'm a passerby
just a passerby

another rented room
another town, not far from the highway
another place to call home

I'm a passerby
just a passerby
I'll leave it all behind
one day

sun-soaked memories
flash of the light that makes the night whisper
another broken heart
another life to start
another way to say goodbye, girl

I'm a passerby
just a passerby
I'll leave it all behind
one day
