Rene Miklas Sonically this album reminds me of 60s' recordings, which fits the music pretty well. A talented young band who seem inspired by the times when Rock music first got big. Definitely not an album to get boring any time soon! Favorite track: In The River.

Track Name: Good Morning Life
The light shines through my window
The day brightly awakes
It seems a new beginning
And it's time to crack the breaks

Good morning life
Where are you gonna drive me
Now

I can hardly remember
What happened yesterday
I must have fallen asleep
And woke up in this new day

Good morning life
Where are you gonna drive me
Now

Get into the car
We're gonna drive you away
And now you can't refuse it
We'll do it everyday

Good morning life
Where are you gonna drive me
Now
Track Name: Time For Coffee
I walked outside
And my car was gone
I had to walk
But the street was gone

Time for coffee (time for coffee)
Time for coffee (time for coffee)
Time for coffee (time for coffee)
Ooh

I found a girl
With a T-Shirt on
I ran away
And I wrote this song

Time for coffee (time for coffee)
Time for coffee (time for coffee)
Time for coffee (time for coffee)
Ooh

I played a gig
Stage was gone
Are the people still there?
No, they run

Time for coffee (time for coffee)
Time for coffee (time for coffee)
Time for coffee (time for coffee)
Ooh

Life's a bitch
Got sold out
The sun is round
So I squeeze it out

Time for coffee (time for coffee)
Time for coffee (time for coffee)
Time for coffee (time for coffee)
Ooh

TIME FOR COFFEE
TIME FOR COFFEE
TIME FOR COFFEE
OOH

It's always
It's always
It's always
It's always
Track Name: Let It Stay
Past the cafe
There's a dark alley
If you go there once
You'll live there forever

He's sick and tired
Can't breath a word
He takes another one
Already his fourth

Please don't take it away
Don't push me to the edge of the day
Let it stay (let it stay) let it stay (let it stay)
Let it bring me down

He is unable to think
His mind is so fucked up
Lost his finger in a cardoor
Leaving orange drops

Constantly trying
Testing his luck
Closed the door behind
But his mind got stuck

Please don't take it away
Don't push me to the edge of the day
Let it stay (let it stay) let it stay (let it stay)
Let it bring me down
ALL THE WAY!
Track Name: You Can Ask Me Why / The Answer Is I
My second ego escaped its cage
Gave another name to the same face
It's got lots of bad habits, just like me
Limiting its thoughts, it can never be free

YOU CAN ASK ME WHY
BUT THE ANSWER IS I

They tell me I gotta lock it back away
But I want to let it stay
No laws of physics for this half of me
I'm more than one, why don't you see?

YOU CAN ASK ME WHY
BUT THE ANSWER IS I
Track Name: No. 5
It's a matter of taste
But I think you're a waste
And I just don't know
How to let you go

You know what they say
It's so hard to get away
From you

It's a matter of taste
But I think you're a waste
And I just don't know
How to let you go

You know what they say
It's so hard to get away
From you
Track Name: Just Like Me
Riding to the sun
Riding out of town
But when I'm finally there
It already fell down

Just like me
Just like me
Just like me
Oh

The way you're looking at me
Tells me exactly how you feel
You feel like you're driving
In a car with just three wheels

Just like me
Just like me
Just like me
Oh
Why don't you just like me

Riding to the sun
Riding out of town
But when I'm finally there
It already fell down

Just like me
Just like me
Just like me
Oh

Just like me
Just like me
Just like me
Oh
Why don't you just like me
Track Name: Forever & Never
Won't you take my hand girl
I'll get you through the night
Tonight
You'll be mine girl
Forever and never
Track Name: In The River
I'm in the classroom and I
Don't wanna be
She's vommiting her knowledge all
Over me
She's telling us to swallow it
But I won't, not even a bit

And she lives in the river
And she looks like a hippo
And she's nothing today but they
Still let her stay

The silence's fighting with the
Noisy parts
When she walks to pull
Another card
And she's walking on our tongues and she cuts our lips
With her piercing eyes she could break our ribs

And she lives in the river
And she looks like a hippo
And she's nothing today but they
Still let her stay
Track Name: Hole In The Wall
I don't know who passed out
What will it take me to get out
And all the details, that you speak of
Can't stick together, what you call love

The end is not the end
You won't notice that you're dead
But the running fire made it's point
When you sit back to smoke an orange joint

I don't know who could make me smile
And I think it'll take a while
Is death something to die for
Is it really worthwhile

The end is not the end
You won't notice that you're dead
But the running fire made it's point
When you sit back to smoke an orange joint

You clearly walked into the wall
You won't answer any call
You must be drained with confusion
Only part of you can crawl through the hole in the wall

The end is not the end
You won't notice that you're dead
But the running fire made it's point
When you sit back to smoke an orange joint

You've had too much
But too much is not enough
It keeps sucking your health
And pretends it gives you love

The end is not the end
You won't notice that you're dead
But the running fire made it's point
When you sit back to smoke an orange joint

I am sitting by your stone
Underneath it are your bones
A tree is growing on your grave
When there are fruits you will get stoned

The end is not the end
You won't notice that you're dead
But the running fire made it's point
When you sit back to smoke an orange joint
Track Name: Burning Water Salsa
When I hear the cowbells ring
I try to use my only wing
But I can't fly with one wing
The burning river I fall in

And when you're lying there
And the bottom calls ya
You can only play
The Burning Water Salsa

All the air here's very thin
And I think the water wins
Lots of fishes, lots of fins
The icy water burns my skin

And when you're lying there
And the bottom calls ya
You can only play
The Burning Water Salsa
Track Name: You Kill Me
I walked on a crowded way
Not a place for me to stay
Clothes all burned away
Don't know where but I'm on my way

I know you kill me
But that's just why I love you
I know you kill me
But I can't live without you

Couldn't do anything but taking you out
I was one in a million but you took me out
You distort me but Í'm feeling better
Than ever

I know you kill me
But that's just why I love you
I know you kill me
But I can't live without you

I know what I want is bad for me
But how to live if reality
Is the only thing
That I can't see

Sounds like this...
Track Name: Hardrock In Heaven
S(h)itting on my roof
Looking at the sky
Rock at my head
Didn't ask why

Sitting on my roof
Looking at the stars
It didn't hurt a lot
I just saw the stars

Everybody has to go through it once
Everybody has to go through it twice
There's always someone dancing on ice
Hard rocks from heaven

Billy met Sarah
They had a quick chat
Got hit on the head
That angel must be mad

Maybe that guy
Got stoned himself
He's happy anyway
Hit three times and it's twelve

Everybody has to go through it once
Everybody has to go through it twice
There's always someone dancing on ice
Hard rocks from heaven
Track Name: In Hell...
Rushing through the shopping mall
To get myself prepared to fall
Bought a new piece of furniture
Just add a bit of water and stir

WONDERING ALL MY LIFE
SHOULD I JUST PICK UP THAT KNIVE
BUT HOW'D THAT WORK ME OVER THE WALL
IN HELL I WON'T DO ANYTHING AT ALL

Turn on the heat, two hundred degrees
Watch it 'till the size increase
Eat it with a grain of salt
Before you get cold

WONDERING ALL MY LIFE
SHOULD I JUST PICK UP THAT KNIVE
BUT HOW'D THAT WORK ME OVER THE WALL
IN HELL I WON'T DO ANYTHING AT ALL

He sat back watched his life go by
Without the need to look behind
'Cause one day you know you'll find
Just another place to hide

WONDERING ALL MY LIFE
SHOULD I JUST PICK UP THAT KNIVE
BUT HOW'D THAT WORK ME OVER THE WALL
IN HELL I WON'T DO ANYTHING AT ALL

Rushing through the shopping mall
To get myself prepared to fall
Bought a new piece of furniture
I'm just too lazy to stir

WONDERING ALL MY LIFE
SHOULD I JUST PICK UP THAT KNIVE
BUT HOW'D THAT WORK ME OVER THE WALL
IN HELL I WON'T DO ANYTHING AT ALL
Track Name: Bullshit
I'm in my car with the radio on
The DJ plays a stupid song
I snort the last bit of coke from my dashboard
While my car gently drives to the north

I CAN THINK OF SOMETHING TO SAY
OR PUT IT IN ANOTHER OBSTINATE WAY

The orange red sun sets in the distance
My mind wonders off as I look at it once
On my left I see a truck with black sides
In large red letters it says...

I CAN THINK OF SOMETHING TO SAY
OR PUT IT IN ANOTHER OBSTINATE WAY

The truck crashes into an old SUV
It collapses quite close to me
The truck crashed down in several pieces
Bla-bla-bullshit is what it releases

I CAN THINK OF SOMETHING TO SAY
OR PUT IT IN ANOTHER OBSTINATE WAY

All the bullshit ran away
Leaving me and two dead men on the highway
I called my boss I've got a bit of delay
He said: Don't you have that everyday?

I CAN THINK OF SOMETHING TO SAY
OR PUT IT IN ANOTHER OBSTINATE WAY
