  • 1. New Kind of Love

    You don't know what to wear
    had no idea that you'd care
    how you seem, now with me

    I'm dragging both my feet
    noone new that i'd like to meet
    I can't I just wear jeans?

    Cause it's a new kinda love

    Never seen such a view
    from up here everything looks new
    oh is our love something we can improve?

    and on the avenue we go
    let nothing show, just another row
    but there's a buzzing that I feel, and electric eel
    can we make a deal?

    but it's up to me

    I'll take you to that place
    put that smile right back on your face
    we need some pictures, seriously

  • 2. Obliterate

    If we fail, though full of glory
    would you even know
    we gave it our damndest
    but the answer was "no"

    wil it rise from the ashes
    of our defeat
    smoke seen for miles
    our failure complete

    life launched in a mud pit
    stands tall and dreams
    held by a vision
    and breaking at seams

    if you were to pass by
    once we're all thru
    would the love that we broke for
    be broken too?

    burn my voice in stone
    and write my song in bone
    then we will see

    on the beach, the Sun is so stunning
    the water so cool
    my nephew(s) is laughing
    and joy is the rule

    we build up a castle
    tower and wall
    pail and a shovel
    big hands and small

    if only one thing lasts thru death
    let it be the love that I left

    wait for an answer
    will this smoke drift away
    the ocean wave will it come and obliterate?

  • 3. Solitude

    take me far from here
    make my silence clear
    friend that I've ignored, too long
    I've come to you to hear your crystal song

    lose me in a dream
    and pull me down the stream
    yes I've drowned my thoughts to sleep
    let them rise, let them steep

    O Solitude, I've made a mess of you
    I haven't heard a thing you say
    you call my name
    my thoughts all melt away
    what's left is where I'd like to stay

    but I'm running from myself

    in the basement of my mind
    i held on to my last hope so tight
    to fall would bring a blackness without end
    we fight to keep the light as long we can

    What can I say?
    I've looked the other way
    I feared the echo in the cave
    So bring the wave(!)
    forget the peace we save
    yes it's the torrent that I crave

    but I'm (still) running from myself

    and when you've had enough
    of this game
    when there's nothing hung on your name
    come find me in the wood that you burn
    I'll be burning soft red, always
