ELECTRIFIED (Music & Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich) too much illusion, I think I close my eyes world's seduction with its tempting lies undo the fetters now - oh yeah I got to step out a gypsy's heart is departin' one more time soft confusion but I got to get away too much distraction - what’s electrifyin' me? on a lonesome road it's easy to be free self-acceptance is a vagabond’s key my heart's electrified electrified electrified again my heart’s on fire familiar stations I linger for a certain time no more mentation - I think that I feel fine I watch the moments that are passin' by listen to the crickets’ lullabies about the art of the simpleness of life real emotions, authenticity I can feel no more hagglin', no adjustment, no more deals perhaps I’m searchin' and I ask myself why the world around has changed but I don’t mind my gypsy soul never bends… it’s always real my heart's electrified electrified electrified again my heart’s on fire (solo: Gabriel) goodbye (4x) my heart’s electrified electrified electrified again my heart’s on fire electrified (electrified) electrified (electrified) electrified (electrified) again my heart’s on fire http://youngfastrunningman.com

ROD AND LINE (Music & Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich) the concrete jungle steals my air, how shall I breathe? I feel that I can't stay here, I got to leave need my soul floating for a while slowly out of time and let the silence within me arise rivers show me the limitation of time in a second I watch the transience of life while I’m diving in my exile daily grind now far behind all that counts for now's my rod and line my thoughts just fade away in the horizon of the day while I stay motionless and hold my rod and line into the waves - my holy shelter, my escape to awaken and find back to my conscious mind I know that here I’m a part of nature, not that nature’s a part of mine and though I'll leave the sun will still go down and rise though I come back with empty hands I feel rich in every sense sometimes there's luck in a just single grain of sand while I diving in my exile daily grind now far behind all that counts for now's my rod and line I know that here I'm a part of nature, not that nature's a part of mine and though I'll leave the sun will still go down and rise http://youngfastrunningman.com

CANOLA SEA (Music & Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich) this epic yellow sea dazzling my red eyes a million crickets chirp while I suppress a burp summer sense around me my shirt smells like an ashtray I see a careless bumblebee and feel a bit astray mirror puddles shiver in the breeze and I just keep walkin' with my worn out knees yawn at the blue sky where early birds fly high weird stains on my left thigh what a weird early bird am I? oh I need to sleep 5 hours straight and I'll take this path once more my head hurts less - canola sea this walk through colors will heal me mirror puddles shiver in the breeze and I just keep walkin' with my worn out knees and I'm still angry with myself and I'm still angry with myself http://youngfastrunningman.com

BINA VALLEY BLUES (Music & Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich) old pleasant man with your sober mind your cordial calm nowhere to find kings fall and friends they leave ya leavin' only love behind ooh farewell Bel Peter the Bina Valley softly cries Hoochie Coochie Man still can hear you play oh like your blues memories will stay kings fall, friends they leave ya leavin' only love behind ooh farewell Bel Peter the Bina Valley softly cries leaves turn to brown and summers are flashin' by determination of time legends stay, only bodies are passing even if it’s hard not to cry (dobro solo: Gabriel) old pleasant man with your sober mind your cordial calm nowhere to find kings die as well - one day we’re all leavin' even if it’s hard to get by ooh thank you Bel Peter the Bina Valley softly cries the Bina Valley softly cries the Bina Valley softly cries http://youngfastrunningman.com

LOVE BIRD (Music & Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich) I feel like put in chains, oh took a drink - they call it strange brew full of love - you doubt? your glances hit me painful like a shot by Cupid's arrow far above dark clouds little fawn you should be careful predator has focused on you getting lost - the siren shouts poor dog wagin' its tail for knucklebone you took away, no whoo, it howls one love bird in a cage waitin' around in rage (guitar sound) his last sounds I feel like put in chains, oh took a drink - they call it strange brew full of love - you doubt?

CATCH 22 (Music & Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich) smilin' face but the heart's grown cold perfect shapes while true values slowly getting old now your friends are strange do you still believe in what you've been told? love - is it just fake? still there are things more worth than gold hectic life - no patience left just in time we're all depressed is time money that defines our happiness in life? like the adage says the early bird catches the worm forced to be first insatiably we're all diggin' for more actually we're afraid of sharing and caring - let's close our doors too many ways to go how to fulfill our lives but still we're wasting time reaching for trinkets, futilities we adore do you see humanity's downsides you're really living for? we agree on drownin' lies soft shell, hard core poker face - petrified soul perfect days and catch 22 http://youngfastrunningman.com

ENRICHED BY THE THIEVES (Music & Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich) now our sun is going down - hands at start again a dried out fish, scared to drown, would jump into the water but he can't helmsman and buccaneer, old brig doomed to sink incident suns in a dark locked room in a thousand rays they strew too long we've worn these worn out shoes - too many miles we've wandered through sometimes things pass by as fast as the last offered drink that makes you think, whoo-whoo we watched the earth go to sleep listened to the grass stalks growing ignored the anger of Zeus I walked with spring above skylight's symphonies and underneath our heartbeats we heartened anxiety enriched by the thieves enriched by the thieves enriched by the thieves (violin solo: Gabriel) now our sun is going down but there'll be many more suns and moons or even if the circus left town - wait and it will get back soon we'll sing the tired earth to sleep listen to the grass stalks growing steal the fire of Zeus guiding me through spring above skylight's symphonies and underneath our heartbeats we heartened anxiety enriched by the thieves enriched by the thieves enriched by the thieves enriched by the thieves http://youngfastrunningman.com

ERICH (Music & Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich) remember back when I was a child you taught me wisdoms divine "like trouble will not wreck my life" still I'm your fast running wheel, your light burning fire I hear you groanin' when you put on your shoes for the daily ride to school and your smile while singin' Ringo's tune "no one there to tell us what to do" hmm... I see your worried and nervous face beggin' all 4 sons for grace still can feel your calming and gentle embrace you're my roots, my heart, my soul, my base you are the fundamental voice for my tunes I would give everything to go on with you oh I hope to see you soon 'cause the only thing that matters is singin' with you yeah, the only thing that matters is singin' with you hmm... http://youngfastrunningman.com

RISING SUN (Music & Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich) “obey the rules” they all claim “abandon youth” is what they say march in line, beat the galley's drum only rich fools complain - virtual wealth makes insane one day it's real, one it's gone ooh but I don't mind what we become ooh the truth of life is made by the sun workin' troops in a cage some compassion, it's fake morning things that still have gone daily loops in our brains are all we create now you lose, but don't forget what you have won ooh but I don't mind what we become ooh the truth of life is made by the sun (sitar solo: Gabriel) with you I will stay till kingdom come mmh to lose myself in the rising sun with you I will stay till kingdom come mmh to lose myself in the rising sun http://youngfastrunningman.com
