K.O.O.K.
K.O.O.K. (3x)
That's what we say

K.O.O.K. (3x)
That's what we say

K.O.O.K. (3x)
That's what we say

K.O.O.K. (3x)
We're rockin' that way

Misfortune Must Be Fought Back
It is alarming but it's true
The raggedness in which we year after year
In every situation find ourselves so to speak
Imprisoned for life

Is more and more and more and more
Is more and more and more and more
And more unbearable

Even if we sit together
In our favourite brewery-restaurant
We should be aware that
Every bite we tear at
And every mouthful we take
And shove down in a frenzy

Before we realize
That our dignity and pride
Have disappeared and
The everydaily life
Is poured out all the time from
Brimming barrels tapped
No longer gets us drunk
But the more aware that

Misfortune everywhere on earth must be fought back

Is more and more and more and more
Is more and more and more and more
and more unbearable

Jackpot
You are the jackpot of my life
And you're right
The metaphor is more loose than tight
But when you laugh
Three suns come up
We are out
And we are proud of it

You have the know-how
And I have your trust
They have no secrets from us
And when we laugh
Three suns come up
We are out
And we are proud of it

We are out
And we are proud of it (3x)

The Boundaries Of Good Taste 1
Here in our own street
We're happy and composed
We mostly talk about the things
That concern us the most

On every corner there are people people people people
Whose opinions we can trust
And the sky is very blue
Because it's full of ozone too

You don't need much of it
To make you feel fine
We kiss in the summershine
The evil empire will not
Be fended off this time

The wind carries off the clouds
This is the day the summer starts
We make the most of our freedom
And drink warm beer in the park

You don't need much of it
To make you feel fine
We kiss in the summershine
The evil empire will not be fended off this time
The darkness in the world descends upon us all the time

Here in our own street...

Let There Be Rock
So we pulled over
In the most boring landscape on earth
We talked among ourselves
Before too long it was clear
That we like it here

The human exploitation
Takes on a new quality
And everywhere you hear
The art of garden-design
Is still cultivated here

I can here you say
More softly than loud
It is the youth themselves
Who have built it all up so well

Let there be rock (3x)

And all the things we've hated
Since the very first day
Will never leave us alone
Because actually we like it anyway

I can hear you say...

Let there be rock (3x)

Let there be rock (7x)

Auarghall (?) :-)
Just one more hour
Just one more day
Let there be rock
God damn it all

Let there be rock (2x)

Under The Expressway
Under the expressway
In a maze of passages
I was thrown in
If I would still make it
If I could find my way
Took all my concentration

And I heard softly
As if from a distance
The sound of traffic

And I heard softly... (2x)

Day Without Shadows
Instrumental

The Gift
I was just given
The gift of a lifetime
The news of an end to the night
I was reluctant but it stayed
As if it stuck to me
Fastened with all of its might

I was just...

Those Are Not Riddles
Those are not riddles
That is undisputed
Like a leaf
In the palm of my hand

The branches of the trees are
Already in bloom
Always intertwining
And crossing again

I can hear things in
The voice of your eyes
But their deeper meaning
I can not comprehend

But those are not riddles...

Beyond The Canal
The paths we go along
Are empty now
That is unmistakable

You can turn it all around
All you want
So I thought as I threw something on the grill
Time stood still

Beyond the canal
Was the wide blue sky
A (?) sound
Like a bicycle bell
Sounded in the distance
In the humid air
I stood alone in my garden
Everything looked frozen
Waiting for the last summer days of this year
And to me it was anything but strange

Some Good Advice
Today or tomorrow
It doesn't matter when
But there can be no doubt
That every single day again
At the appropriate hour
Some very good advice
Mostly fresh and polite
Will be cooked up and dished up
And we will not despair/be spare/... (?)
This generous gift
Because we never get that far

They only want the best
The best for our wellbeing
Therefore the situation
Politely expressed
Is to a high degree complex
And we start to understand
That every single day again
We need some very good advice
To tell us just exactly how
We can perhaps in days to come
Keep ourselves far away
From exactly such advice

Thought Around The Corner
We have spent hours
And hours together
And thought ourselves around the corner

To the point of full exhaustion
We had talked ourselves dry
Over things we both no longer
See as anything better than
Questionable

We were a team
Everything seemed
As if measured to fit our needs

Our sofas and our cabinets
Were named after people who
Once were so close to us
And who disappeared because they no longer
Recognized us

The New Strangeness
I was taught the time had come
And a strangeness had begun
And everything that once was here
All at once will disappear
And before the morning breaks
Many voices will be raised
And though no one is certain yet
Everyone is sure to fall instead

Well nobody knows when and how it will come
And wether you win or become undone
You want to be prepared
You've put some money away
And canceled the meeting on thursday
You're ready and willed to lead a different life
But at the moment it seems no direction is right
It is never very easy from one day to the next
You have to be sure that the dog is fed

And somewhere it has already begun
Even where I may go you could still walk in the sun
But then no one knew what it could be
But there were already signs and here and there you could see
It was not only in places that it appeared
There were times of day when it was clear
In the hours after the sun went down
Change had come and it was all around
If the truth be told we can not deny
That what we used to hide from now we welcome inside
And it was understood that best unconsciously
That something's unfold and something's happening
And only just now has it become
Too much to ignore that something has begun
The signs have been clear the time is here
And now a strangeness has appeared

And I lie in bed and I have to admit
I have a strong urge to turn around again
Outside where the night blends with the daylight
See things coming through and it concerns me too

Tomorrow Will Be Like Today
I like you very
You like me more very
Nothing could be less likely
Than for us to hide from anyone
How much we like how we've become

Cause it's not good to be alone
For instance here in the youth home
For instance at the fast food stand
An empty bottle in your hand

I like you very
You like me more very
Nothing could be less likely
Than for us to keep it to ourselves
That we go together well

Cause it's not good to be alone
For instance in the nursing home
For instance at the fast food stand
An empty bottle in your hand

For instance in the discotheque
Where no one goes now anyway
For instance in the games arcade
On another holiday

Tomorrow will be like today (4x)

The Boundaries Of Good Taste 2
Concerning certain borders
It is known and one must understand
That they tend to fluctuate
You said to me a drink in hand
I was lost in thought
It seemed to be the only suitable place
For such a conversation
There was no better one
Myself I was uncertain
If we'd stay at all

Our words become softer
Till they disappear like sketches
In the sand but all the same
There is no life without shame
Now that distant ships are on a ground
You cannot ever live it down

It can't be any secret when
I tend to drift off now and then
It happens more and more these days
And all my nerves are worn away
It all can (?) disorder
When you can't set any borders

And concerning certain borders
It is known and one must understand
That they mostly fluctuate
You said to me a Sprite in hand
I was lost in thought
It seemed to be the only suitable place
For such a conversation
There was no better one
Myself I was uncertain
If we'd stay at all

Rock Pop In Concert
On a sunday morning
We're going without worries
Out of town among the garden homes
And we watch undisturbed
Rock Pop In Concert
Our cottage is quite handsome
Just a little further
The streets are wider
We will always be lonesome

17
On a christmas eve
When nobody called me
A friend came into my room
Where I was sleeping

He touched my hand
I knew who he was
His voice was familiar and deep

In the trees and in the bushes
Rose up a wind and breathed in my ear
Today I'm happy like never before

There was much to discuss
As he stood before me
By my bed in the corner
Slowly it grew late

He took my hand
I knew who he was
I didn't want him to go

In the trees...
