Track Name: Afraid To Fly
Afraid to Fly

I'm so afraid to fly
Afraid to fly
I'm so afraid to fly
Afraid to fly

I'm way in over my head
Over my head

I wish we could land before we take off
I wish we could sleep and see this through
I wish we could land before we take off
I wish we could sleep and see this through

I'm so afraid to fly
Afraid to fly
I'm so afraid to fly
Afraid to fly

I'm way in over my head
Over my head

I wish we could land before we take off
I wish we could sleep and see this through
I wish we could land before we take off
I wish we could sleep and see this through

I wish you could teletransport me
I wish you could teletransport me
I wish you could teletransport me
I wish you could teletransport me!

I'm so afraid to fly
Afraid to fly
I'm so afraid to fly
Afraid to fly

I'm way in over my head
Over my head

Es schneit im Mai - Es schneit im Mai
Es schneit im Mai - Es schneit im Mai
Es schneit im Mai

Heißes Wetter, Eiskalte Gedanken
Heißes Wetter, Eiskalte Gedanken
Ein schmerzvoller weißer
Ein schmerzvoller weißer
Ein schmerzvoller weißer
Ein schmerzvoller weißer Morgen

Dann plötzlich war alles anders
Wir flatterten wieder zusammen
Dann plötzlich war alles anders
Wir flatterten wieder zusammen

Dann plötzlich war alles anders
Der Schnee wurde zu Regen
Dann plötzlich war alles anders
Der Schnee wurde zu Regen

Und es war der perfekte weiße Morgen
Und es war der perfekte
Perfekte weiße Morgen

Heißes Wetter, Eiskalte Gedanken
Heißes Wetter, Eiskalte Gedanken
Ein schmerzvoller weißer
Ein schmerzvoller weißer
Ein schmerzvoller weißer
Ein schmerzvoller weißer Morgen

The times they are a-changing
The times they are a-changing
Power – it is a-shifting
Power – it is a-shifting

See - the gates are now open for us (a whole new wide world)
See - there are no borders anymore
See - the gates are now open for us (a whole new wide world)
See - there are no borders anymore

Everything you hold dear is now standing on the line
Everything you hold dear is now standing
Standing on the line

Spin spin spin it
If you’re looking at me
Spin spin spin it
Candied pink flamingo

Spin spin spin it
If you think I’m the one
Spin spin spin it
And I’ll be your jellybean

Spin spin spin it
If you’re looking at me
Spin spin spin it
Candied pink flamingo

Spin spin spin it
If you think I’m the one
Spin spin spin it
And I’ll be your jellybean
Be your jelly
Be your jelly
Be your jellybean

Spin spin spin it – spin it
Spin spin spin it – spin it
Spin spin spin it
Candied pink flamingo
Spin spin spin it – spin it
Track Name: Tugboat
Tugboat

Small as I am
I can still drag you along
But only so far
But only so far

Let go of all resistance
And follow my lead
My strength lies in your acceptance
As soon as you dock, I will flee
And forever remember
That together we were mighty
That together we were mighty

Small as I am
I can still drag you along
But only so far
But only so far

Let go of all resistance
And follow my lead
My strength lies in your acceptance
As soon as you dock, I will flee
And forever remember
That together we were mighty
That together we were mighty

Disabled ships
Oil platforms
Icebreakers
Salvage boats
Diesel engines
Fire fighting
Fire fighting

Lost in the Tropics

The sun burnt my face
And shades were so rare
My hopes were so high
In Cairo

Purple sunsets
Squeeze the air out of my lungs – oppression!

I won’t find much solace there
For all these concepts are foreign to me
In Cairo

I won’t find much solace there
For all these concepts are foreign to me
In Cairo

It will hit me
It will hit me
Like a thunderstrike of truth

The sun burnt my face
And shades were so rare
My hopes were so high
In Cairo

Purple sunsets
Squeeze the air out of my lungs – oppression!

I won’t find much solace there
For all these concepts are foreign to me
In Cairo

I won’t find much solace there
For all these concepts are foreign to me
In Cairo
Track Name: Merge
Merge

I want you to be me
I want so badly to be you
I want you to be me
I want so badly to be you

I've seen you from a distance, baby
I've seen you 'round the bend
I've seen you from a distance, baby
I've seen you 'round the bend

I gotta go the distance, baby
I gotta go with you
When I gotta go the distance, baby, it's gotta be with you

For if I got you under my skin then you
Have to walk in my shoes
For if you got me under your skin then I
Have to walk in your shoes

I've seen you from a distance, baby
I've seen you 'round the bend
I've seen you from a distance, baby
I've seen you 'round the bend

I gotta go the distance, baby
I gotta go with you
When I gotta go the distance, baby, it's gotta be with you

I want you to be me
I want so badly to be you
I want you to be me
I want so badly to be you
Track Name: Cloud Nine
Cloud Nine

You lured me to believe
That the Chinese wall was built for our own good
But my world longs for merging
And the birds in me are all headed for your pond

But there’s no real life outside one’s thoughts
And then false symmetry becomes perfect understanding
And your siren call is no longer a decoy
Decoy – decoy

I fell flat time and again
So I cannot tell harmony from conflict anymore
But as long as you love me
High and above we’ll keep on drawing parallel lines

But there’s no real life outside one’s thoughts
And then false symmetry becomes perfect understanding
And your siren call is no longer a decoy
Decoy – decoy?
Track Name: White Cliffs Of Dover
White Cliffs of Dover

Steadfast improvement
In the shape of things to come
Imperceptible movement
Stirring your loins and your guts

Steadfast improvement
In the shape of things to come
Imperceptible movement
Stirring your loins and your guts

The siren appeal of a free fall
Is fear to crash and longing to take off
The siren appeal of a free fall
Is fear to crash and longing to take off

You’re light-headed and your feet twitch
Set your anchor, don’t set your sails
You’re light-headed and your feet twitch
Set your anchor, don’t set your sails

You contemplate the idea
You flail around the venue
But your secret is safe with me
But your secret is safe with me
So you don’t have to jump
So you don’t have to jump

Steadfast improvement
In the shape of things to come
Imperceptible movement
Stirring your loins and your guts

Steadfast improvement
In the shape of things to come
Imperceptible movement
Stirring your loins and your guts
Stirring your loins and your guts
Stirring your loins and your guts

Butterfly wings
Batting like your lashes in the summer sun
Butterfly wings
Batting like your lashes in the summer sun – in the summer sun

Butterfly wings
Batting like your lashes in the summer sun – in the summer sun
Butterfly wings
Batting like your lashes in the sun – in the summer sun

Stay away from danger
Stay away ‘cause there’s no one there for you
Stay away from danger
Stay away ‘cause there’s no one there for you

I sold my soul - I sold my soul and now it bleeds for you
I sold my soul - I sold my soul and now it bleeds for you
I sold my soul - I sold my soul and now it bleeds for you
I sold my soul - I sold my soul and now it bleeds for you
Track Name: Walk The Walk
Walk the Walk

You said it wouldn’t be easy
You said I had to sweat it out
You said consistency was key
And all I did was laugh it off

Walk the walk
Don’t talk the talk
Walk the walk
Don’t talk the talk

Incertitude is all there is
But where you are gloom, there I am glee
Stutter, gasp, and hesitate
Yet you may never have to see the dark side of me

Walk the walk
Don’t talk the talk
Walk the walk
Don’t talk the talk

You said it wouldn’t be easy
You said I had to sweat it out
You said it wouldn’t be easy
You said I had to sweat it out
Out – Out

Walk the walk
Don’t talk the talk
Walk the walk
Don’t talk the talk
