Track Name: Me and Jekyll & Hyde
[Verse1]
Friday you were in love
You told me I was the one turning your world upside down
How come I see you standing here with both feet on solid ground?

On Sunday it was as if
You looked right through me, no recall at all
Well, I’m not playing this game of yours just to increase your ego

[Pre-Chorus]
Treating people like marionettes, they dance for you

[Chorus]
Me ‘nd Jakyll’n’Hyde
Experimental coexistence failed
I should’ve seen your green eyes
Woohohooo

Gotta know that I’ve tried
But we won’t build a home on “forgive ’n forget”
Me ‘nd Jakyll’n’Hyde
Woohohooo

[Verse2]
On Monday you were sorry
Tried to get into my heart by breaking down it’s lock
Could you spare me your issues, please, I ain’t got no time for that

On Wednesday you forgot
To bring the flowers you‘d promised me on Monday
Again it‘s Friday, the only thing flourishing round here is your ego

[Pre-Chorus]
You ask yourself “Oh why
Do people turn away from me?”

[Chorus]
Me ‘nd Jakyll’n’Hyde
Experimental coexistence failed
I should’ve seen your green eyes
Woohohooo

Gotta know that I’ve tried
But we won’t build a home on “forgive ’n forget”
Me ‘nd Jakyll’n’Hyde
Woohohooo


[Bridge]
You see me going
See me walking head up high
You feel the envy crawling up your spine

You see me turning
See me dancing with my feet in the clouds
You feel envy crawling up your spine


[Pre-Chorus]
And you ask yourself: “Oh why?”
“Oh why?”

[Chorus]
Me ‘nd Jakyll’n’Hyde
Experimental coexistence failed
I should’ve seen your green-eyes
Woohohooo

Gotta know that I’ve tried
But we won’t build a home on “forgive ’n forget
Me ‘nd Jakyll’n’Hyde
Woohohooo
Track Name: Colorblind
[Verse1]
(You say)
I know that feeling, darling
I totally hear you
I felt the same way
And I‘ve been through this, too.



I know these expressions,
I‘ve heard them a lot.
Still they‘re of no advantage to me
They don‘t form the answer,
Won‘t make it less hard or even better


[Pre-Chorus]
No one can see, no one can feel
What it‘s like to be stuck in here
Now that I‘m in
I can barely imagine what it‘s like from the outside looking in


[Chorus]
Hide in the shadows
Cover up anxieties
Go blame the shadows
For your uncertainty


For banning colors from your sight
Stop pretending!
You just blame the shadows

[Verse2]
I have to admit that it was rude
You say "Fresh eye never hurts“, at least one thing was true
Get out off my way I don‘t need
The idle talk of yours


[Pre-Chorus]
No one can see, no one can feel
What it‘s like to be stuck in here


[Chorus]
Hide in the shadows
Cover up anxieties
Go blame the shadows
For your uncertainty


For banning colors from your sight
Stop pretending!
You just blame the shadows 



Don‘t you blame the shadows!


[Bridge]
In the blackest cave
You see the brightest light
In every grey sky
Somewhere there‘s blue to find

Don‘t be so color-blind
Don‘t be so color-blind


[Chorus]
Lighten the shadows
Brighten up dubiety
Color the shadows
Bring the best outta what you see

Liife‘s not only black and white
Stop pretending!

You‘re color-blind


Track Name: Home To Our Hearts
[Verse1]
Somehow she ended up rain-soaked and all alone
Expecting him to speak the truth she knew all along
He’s coming clean, confirming fears, relief and defeat
Possessing her within a breath, she knew all along

[Pre-Chorus1]
Tied up in knots she can hear her heart pumping blood through her veins
His words are lifting this burden from her shoulders
She’s breathing

[Chorus]
It lies within us, the home to our hearts
The inner compass is home to our hearts
A pulse so strong we just cannot ignore
The knowledge that we cannot lose it all

[Verse2]
For so long he locked his thoughts away, deep down inside
Swore not to harm the special bond they have, it’s just not right
But he can’t get his eyes off of her, it’s driving him insane
“I had to tell you, I’m such a mess, I’m sorry I lied!”

[Pre-Chorus2]
Clocks are standing still, the tension’s sending a cold chill down his spine
Her voice is lifting the weight off his shoulders
He’s breathing

[Chorus]
It lies within us, the home to our hearts
The inner compass is home to our hearts
A pulse so strong we just cannot ignore
The knowledge that we cannot lose it all

[Bridge]
We’re not lost
It lies within us


[Chorus]
It lies within us, the home to our hearts
The inner compass is home to our hearts

It lies within us, the home to our hearts
The inner compass we can rely on
A pulse so strong we just cannot ignore
The knowledge that we cannot lose it all
Track Name: Name Of The Game
[Verse1]
Driving into the sunset
A broken city left behind
Running into the dark
Knowing there’s no sleep in sight

Got nothing to loose yet
We hold our hopes up high
Running into the darkness
See you on the other side

[Pre-Chorus]
The skyline’s getting closer
My mind is taking over

[Chorus]
Yeah, blow it all off
That’s the name of the game
Buzz is what the fuss is all about
You know, some thing’s never change

Yeah, let’s get rough
That’s the name of the game
Buzz is what the fuss is all about
You know, some thing’s never change

[Verse2]
The joyful rush of crashing glass
When the thrill’s beyond compare
We know this feeling might not last
Join us if you dare

Stumbling over the ashes
Not even acting, we don’t care
Gasoline is in the air
The world awaits us, and we’ll be there

[Pre-Chorus]
The skyline’s getting closer
My mind is taking over

[Chorus]
Blow it off
That’s the name of the game
Buzz is what the fuss is all bout
You know, some thing’s never change

Let’s get rough
That’s the name of the game
Buzz is what the fuss is all bout
You know, some thing’s never change


[Bridge]
Don’t call it
into question
Don’t call it
raving madness

Don’t call it
into question
The spirit
Of expression

Don’t call it
Veiled sadness
Don’t call it
Veiled sadness

[Chorus]
Yeah, blow it all off
That’s the name of the game
Buzz is what the fuss is all about
You know, some thing’s never change

Yeah, let’s get rough
That’s the name of the game
Buzz is what the fuss is all about
You know, some thing’s never change
Track Name: Golden Hour
[Verse1]
Eyes on the road, the wheel in your hands
Tiny freckles behind shades
Hair floating in the wind, warm light on pale skin
Your hands are reaching for mine,
The air is golden

[Chorus]
The perfect moment is already gone
But somehow endless

[Verse2]
The white walls in my room
Tired eyes under the sheets
Afraid of the thunder, which might never come
Your hands are reaching for mine,
And the air becomes golden

[Chorus]
The perfect moment is already gone but
Somehow endless
For such a thing I‘ve been searching so long
There‘s nothing like this

It‘s the
Golden hour, babe
You‘re my golden hour, you are

[Interlude]
All this struggle that we have to solve
All this fear and the pain we oppose

Every time you helped me through
It was a rough year
But somehow we made it

[Chorus]
The perfect moment is already gone but
Somehow endless
For such a thing I‘ve been searching so long
(But) There‘s nothing like this

It‘s the
Golden hour, babe
You‘re my golden hour, you are
Track Name: Out Of Here
[Verse1]
Hey you, where do you come from?
Is it a town like mine where they have
No clue they are living
the exact same lives?

Did you move
From the same old spot in your father’s chair?
Or approve of having the same view,
The same vision as them

[Chorus]
The lights of this city, they may be bright
I gotta get outta here

I need more, more
I want more

[Verse2]
Oh I know
Industrial romance can be mesmerizing
But there is
A whole world waiting on the other side

Come on!
The world belongs to those who are brave enough to change it
The world belongs to those who are brave enough to change it

[Chorus]
The lights of this city, they may be bright
But I gotta get outta here
My mind gets so lazy, the smog makes me blind
I need to get outta here

I need more, more
I want more

[Bridge]
I close my eyes
Let go just for a moment
Drowsy mind
Surrender to the numbness
I close my eyes
Breathe in, deeply
Fill my lungs

[Chorus]
The lights of this city, they may be bright
But I gotta get outta here
My mind gets so lazy, the smog makes me blind
I need to get outta here

I need more, more
I want more
