Track Name: Adeje
Runners have their marathon
We’re trying to keep on
Pace is speeding up
There’s a fight for water, but
I don’t wanna spend another day
Just looking at the sun
And not knowing where to go
I think we’ve gotta catch a train
A plane, a bus, a steamer
Or in between
Move in some direction
I just don’t know where

I will breathe this air
I will sit and stare
At the rising sun
Sunrays sliding down
The volcanic sand
Seashells in my hands
Ocean plays and sings
That’s when joy begins

Speak slow
Tell me what you know
The light fantastic toe
Attracts me much, still I
Better catch a plane and fly
There is nothing holding me right here
Nothing waiting there
But the ticket is bought
I may feel quite sick
But I have all my pills with me
So now I’m fine
A little of liquid
And the world is mine

I will breathe this air
I will sit and stare
At the rising sun
Sunrays sliding down
The volcanic sand
Seashells in my hands
Ocean plays and sings
That’s when joy begins

Crabs climbing my shoes
Ready for a cruise
I won’t drop them down
Let them play around
Meet the fishermen
Their worms in cans
And the cyclers too
That’s what I would do

I tell you everything that’s on my mind
And I want you to know this
Track Name: Gretchen's Going To The Masquerade
Gretchen married when she was 19
Just because of his second name
It was greek and she liked it
But the routine remained just the same
He never took her to Greece and
She joined a facebook group
Named “Desperate wives”
And among those so gloomy and sad
She has been seeking some useful advice

Gretchen’s going to the masquerade tonight

People told her their funny stories
And she laughed to show she was getting
Suddenly the things changed when she had met
A right man right in the Kremlin
He said: we’ll take you to Greece and
Damn that facebook group, you, desperate wife
They’ll reveal all the secrets they have
If you don’t ask them for an advice

Gretchen’s going to the masquerade

She’s so cute when she’s smiling
And there is a fireplace with fire in it
Now she got everything she wanted
And his name she wants to repeat
But the song is not over
5 of 7 would love a happy end
I will make it as good as I can
But the one thing is clear: I would never pretend

Yes, they’re going to live a happy life
Gretchen’s going to the masquerade
Track Name: In The Meantime
The mist is mysterious
The gift leaves me grinning
These very words in german
Have some different meaning
Americans are doing their things
While you are sleeping
One better keep an eye on time
Tell them who’s not keeping

Please don’t phone Khabarovsk now
Please don’t phone Khabarovsk now
They may be asleep and I
Have no wish to talk to angry people

I have no head but I’ve a bed
And when I lie in this bed at night
Somewhere, thousands of kilometers under me
There’s the Pacific ocean
There’s Hawaii and Honolulu
And the people are playing the ukuleles
And what am I supposed to do?

What am I supposed to do?

What am I supposed to do?
How do I get a visa?
What am I supposed to do?
How do I get a visa?
Where do I find the money
To get the visa?
Where do I find the money
To get the visa?

Look at yourself
Now stop looking at yourself
Look at me instead
Look I’m wearing red
Look at me
Look at them
Look at everyone around
And please please please
Pronounce the blasted sound

The tree is not an ashtray
The ash is in the cloud
And everyone seems to be proud
