Track Name: Young Fast Running Man
YOUNG FAST RUNNING MAN
(Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich)

there's a boy in this town they call the runnin' child
the word is he had even run to his birth
and they said that if this child doesn't stop to run as fast
he'll soon leave the edge of the world

well, the boy didn't care, and he ran without cease
passed a long road full of failures
and every time the success felt the same
'cause there was somethin' new to attain

can't catch the young fast runnin' man
can't catch him even though I'm fast
can't catch the young fast running man
can't catch the young fast runnin' man

in search of more and more even thoughts began to run
sleepless nights makin' plans
'cause the race of life - got to keep on
clear destination's unknown

why can't he stop? why can't he be just satisfied?
when will he be tired of life?
too much zest for action that drives him
on and on and on and on and on… and on

can't catch the young fast runnin' man
can't catch him even though I'm fast
can't catch the young fast runnin' man
can't catch him even though I'm fast
can't catch the young fast runnin' man
can't catch him even though I'm fast
can't catch the young fast runnin' man
can't catch the young...
can't catch myself

Track Name: Little Thing
LITTLE THING
(Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich)

I write down these lines just to keep it in mind
what happens to me?
surrounded by this wonderful river
where I can be free

no troubles over there
all worries left behind
'cause all these problems of mine
are just a little thing
are just a little thing

I set off from a world of continuous pressure
exploiting needs
no restrictions, just natural treasures
now I can breathe

no worries over there
all sorrows far behind
and all our problems in mind
are just a little thing
are just a little thing

magic waters take me away
horizon is waitin' for me
endless streams make my way
help me to break free

from these little things
all these little things
from these little things
all these little things

Track Name: The Usher
THE USHER
(Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich)

hours to stand
look at the time
no time on her hands
this thought on her mind

all these hours
matters to mend
what will be ours
in the end


10 pages to fill
the weaker self to kill
he paid money for it
and what will come off of this shit?

all these hours
matters to mend
what will be ours
in the end?

will it all pay off? (3x)

old girl with a broom
and a sisyphean task
in an emptied party room
pauses to ask

oh all these hours

matters to mend
what will be ours
in the end

will it all pay off? (3x)
will it all pay off? (3x)
will it all pay off? (3x)
mh (3x)

Track Name: Jackhammer Blues
JACKHAMMER BLUES
(Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich)

I got to tell that I don't care
if it's warm or cold out there
'cause I gotta hammer on every afternoon
growlin' thunder, lightning, hail
marchin' like a soldier over hill and dale
yes, I know I got only one thing to do

my name is Jack and this is the jackhammer blues
I'm workin' all day but I still got work to do
my name is Jack and this is the jackhammer blues
ain't got no time but I'm in a jackhammer mood
oh the jackhammer blues

standin' still in scarecrow style
the only move is the wink of my eye
my day seems to be a continuous loop
crooked vultures circlin' me
but for all that I feel free
'cause there's still hope that work will stop real soon

my name is Jack and this is the jackhammer blues
I'm workin' all day but I still got work to do
my name is Jack and this is the jackhammer blues
ain't got no time but I'm in a jackhammer mood
oh the jackhammer blues
oh the jackhammer blues

Track Name: Endless Time
ENDLESS TIME
(Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich)

warm red sunlight burnin' in my face
while old church bells ringin' out in space
the soft clean air I'm breathin' - of 1000 smells
while lonely birds are singin' the moments' peace

though I know the problems that stamp the time
restless hunters - sweaters of worthless mines
but satisfaction feelin' overcomes
in this endless time

light cool winds are blowin' through the fields
while hundreds of points are sparklin' in the rushing sea
the variety of colors of circulating leaves
bloomin' meadows I'm smellin' make my happiness complete

though I know the problems that stamp the time
greedy hunters - sweaters of worthless mines
and though false friends are feignin' with deludin' eyes
in search of unimportance of bigger size
but satisfaction feelings overcome
in this endless time, ooh
this endless time, mh ooh
this endless time, ooh
this endless time, mh ooh

Track Name: Down The Streets
DOWN THE STREETS
(Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich)

dressed in mickey mouse style
two cheeky boys met in school
only mischief in mind
breakin' all teachers' rules

remember the time
we were walkin' down the streets

jags at campfires
women, and playin' the fool
road trips - a million miles
hangin' around, hoppin' pools

remember the time
we were walkin' down the streets
the way home late at night
through bavarian fields

keys and strings we combine
puzzlin' over our tunes
to play them worldwide
you'll be forever my dude
oh forever my dude
oh forever my dude

remember the time
we were walkin' down the streets
thanks for the time
we were walkin' down the streets
unpayable times
we were walkin' down the streets

(mandolin solo: Gabriel)

our old friends Jeremia
Fawbee-Fellas and Attune
playin' with you on my side
thanks for this good time my dude
for this good time my dude
for this good time my dude

remember the time
we were walkin' down the streets
thanks for the time
we were walkin' down the streets
unpayable times
we were walkin' down the streets

Track Name: Somewhere In Between
SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN
(Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich)

white-black rainbows and bottomless seas
prospering deserts and shrinkin' trees
acceleration in the daily grind
while deceleratin' the passin' of time

sometimes you fall, sometimes you rise
all these different things in life
you'll find yourself somewhere, oh, in between

eastern sunsets and colorful mines
happy sadness and wordless rhymes
generations and their peaceful fights
fights for receivin', oh, restricted rights

sometimes you fall, sometimes you rise
all these different things in life
you'll find yourself somewhere, oh, in between

Track Name: George, Thomas, Abe & Ben
GEORGE, THOMAS, ABE & BEN
(Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich)

I make you get down on your knees
while on hunt for big salaries
pope and judge, I make them smile
let 'em forget their principles just to satisfy their needs
I'll split all continents
make god and god and god shake their hands
but more and more becomes less
be careful before you become possessed of me

you'll do anything for me (4x)

just a peace of paper in a hand
grinnin' faces with avarice all over the land
George and Thomas, Abe and Ben
ain't got no heart, just these tiny heads you call saints
greedy envy for a bill
let you forget your own brother you killed
George and Thomas, Abe and Ben
ain't got no soul, just a bunch of strangers once been friends

you'll do anything for me
you're just a hungry pet I feed
you'll do anything for me
you're just a marionette I lead
you'll do anything for me
you're just a hungry pet I feed
you'll do anything for me
you're just a marionette I lead
(just a piece of paper in a hand)
you'll do anything for me
(a bunch of tiny heads you call saints)
you're just a hungry pet I feed
(just a piece of paper in a hand)
you'll do anything for me
(a bunch of tiny heads you call saints)
you'll do anything...

I let you smile
I make you cry
I let you smile
I make you cry

Track Name: Farewell
FAREWELL
(Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich)

as night meets the day
pale moonlight on empty cobblestone
as dog has taken the rooster's job
I'm wide awake, the world is not

wrought iron gates
seem to wave me goodbye
settin' forth, the wind in my sail
while I gently wail

farewell my mother - father goodbye
won't promise I'll come back some time
farewell my mother - father goodbye
won't promise I'll come back some time

a gull appears above
choosin' this place for its final breath
like those memories of this town
they're finally bound to drown

farewell my mother - father goodbye
won't promise I'll come back some time
farewell my mother - father goodbye
can't promise I'll come back some time
won't promise I'll come back some time
can't promise I'll come back some time
