Partygirl is dancing On a borrowed piece of ground On a frozen lake in winter time Morning comes It's a cold uncertain chill She's a blue piece Of something in the air She's just a blue piece of something in the air She's always drawing plans For nights to come and raves The dance is on and it makes her feel alive But the days are getting longer Just a useless waste of time For a blue piece Of something in the air She's just a blue piece Of something in the air And there is something in the air There is something in the air She's just a blue piece Of something in the air She's just a blue piece Of something in the air And there is something in the air There is something in the air

Birdsong 04:46
Lilly's leaning in the window at the third floor In the early morning She's enchanted by the birdsong A sip of hot black coffee The quiet and the birdsong Lilly's looking at the empty streets below Where crowds of people use to rush on by Past the sideshows and the busstop Not this morning They all have yielded the birdsong Now that all the noise has died down Now that all the noise has died down So Lilly draws the windows open wide She enchanted by the birdsong and the quiet She is keeping all the windows open wide So enchanted by the birdsong and the quiet The sunlight paints the chimneys on the roof Kaleidoscopic mirrors All the windows at the front side of the houses The larks have gathered Starlings on the high wires and the swallows They all join the birdsong So Lilly draws the windows open wide She enchanted by the birdsong and the quiet She is keeping all the windows open wide So enchanted by the birdsong and the quiet

Change your codes Draw a line Smash a mirror Kill the time Change your style The color of your hair Make yourself invisible Vanish into thin air Lock the doors Refuse my calls Instruct your friends Let yourself be denied You'd better not You'd Better not Forget me not You had better not You had better not Forget me not I am the witness I was your confidant We caught that craving In moving pictures Our juicy little secret No strings attached Shadows flickered Down in a moonlit shed Cries and whispers And the lens was wide You'd better not You'd Better not Forget me not You had better not You had better not Forget me not

It must have been at the end of January It was still cold, but not below zero I was walking my friends dog in the early morning I saw a young lady on this small frozen pond in the park Across from the corner of our street At first i thought that she was ice-skating But I noticed, that she didn't wear skates I fact she was dancing Like in a club Like to a fast beat And she wasn't dressed like wintertime She wore a short skirt Indigo blue I was wondering if the ice was still safe Just for a moment i was distracted By a noise from the other side of the street The dog was startled Then looking back in her direction She wasn't there anymore There was just some cold uncertain chill

Happiness 03:56
Happiness I'll save it all for you In the the afterglow In the fading light I'll keep it all for you The seasons pass Aimlessly Just as the days They go by and bye Your happiness Is safe with me I'll keep it all for you That smile of yours So unique I thought I'd recognised Your face somewhere In a crowded place In the thick of it But you disappeared All without a trace

Revolve intersect collide Revolve intersect collide Revolve intersect collide Revolve intersect collide Time's up sweet utopia The die is cast And all your lights go down One last hoorah for utopia This brave new world Is going to burst in one final blast

Two-hundred-eighty digits Unicode The battleground of number forty-five He's a genius, blessed with mind and skill So follow on and be the first to know But when the sky is coming down on you Who's the culprit Who's to blame Whom to force to pay the price This is the age of number forty-five This is the age of number forty-five Communists and wicked godless pervs The ruthless servants of the state within They vandalize the glory of this land But forty-five will call them to account But when the sky is coming down on you Who's the culprit Who's to blame Whom to force to pay the price This is the age of number forty-five This is the age of number forty-five

Space Junk 03:45
Space junk is silently tumbling a course without aim Sluggish and weightless and totally out of control The remains of an impact adrift at the brink of all age Condemned to outlast all the dreams of an infinite sleep Yet a Long distance orbiter Is solely transmitting an endless repeat A song of our aim A song of our heyday A song of a long lost tribe
