Track Name: Human Hands - Aestivate
i feel sick
to look around
and see myself

to catch a stranger's eye
and see myself

fear to look
and see myself

we live inside a dream
so easy to consume

we live inside a dream
too easy to consume
Track Name: Manku Kapak - Kartenhaus
Was ist das für eine Welt
Mit ihren Millionen Häusern,
die besetzt von traurigen Seelen.
In denen Träume verbarrikadiert
und eingesperrt.

Was ist das für eine Welt?
In dessen Schaufenstern steht
"Kauft Euch glücklich!"
Und nur die Wenigsten bemerken,
dass es nicht geht.

Sie verfluchen das Fliegen
und sehnen zugleich.

"Mein Vertrauen in den Staat,
dass alles gut, aber nichts Privat bleiben kann,
da es so einfach besser ist.
Für mich, für alle, egal wer du bist.
Wenn ich alles mache, was man mir immer gesagt hat,
werde ich aufsteigen, viel verdienen und kann anstatt,
denen die meinen immer alles zu kritisieren
ihren Status, Lohn, Wert und damit auch ihr Glück kassieren."

Wohin die Reise geht
liegt nicht deiner Hand.
Da kannst du noch so oft beteuern,
es mit deinen Händen geschafft zu haben.

Alles Rollen, alles gemacht,
Alles Zufall, wo bist du geboren
Willst du dich wehren, kannst du dich wehren
Kannst du noch den druck aushalten?

Die Versprechen bleiben leer
Deine Ziele bleiben einsam
Da kannst du noch so oft behaupten
Alles im Griff zu haben

Hochmut vor dem Fall
ein hoch aufs Glück
einen Toast aufs Elend
Im Blindflug geht's zurück

Nichts bleibt!

Wir lernen das Leben als ein Spiel.
Und müssten nur die Regeln akzeptieren.
Für Freiheit & Ordnung & was wir wollen
und sollen.

Ein Gewinnen und Verlieren!
Warum fällt's vielen so schwer
das zu hinterfragen?

Es bedeutet alles,
doch's müsste nichts,
wenn alle von uns zusammen halten.

Uns einander auffangen,
wenn wir drohen zu fallen,
anstatt die Kluft immer weiter zu spalten.

english translation:

house of cards

what kind of world is this?
with its millions of houses,
filled with sad souls.
where dreams are barricaded and caged.

what kind of world is this?
in whose shop windows is written:
"buy yourselves happiness!"
and only a few recognize that
it doesn't work.

they curse those who can fly
while longing to do so themselves

"My trust in the state,
that everything could stay well,
but not private, because
it's simply better that way
For me, for everyone, whoever you are.
If I do everything that people
have always told me, I will move up,
earn lots of money and collect
the status, wage, reward and also
the happiness of those,
who always have to criticize everything."

where you are headed doesn't lie in your hands.
however many times you keep saying that you made it with your own hands.
they are all roles.
they are all made.
the place you are born is by chance.
will you resist?
can you resist?
can you still take the pressure?

the promises remain empty.
your aspirations are alone.
however many times you keep saying
that you have everything under control.

pride comes before a fall.
a cheer on luck.
a toast on misery.
in blind flight it returns

nothing remains!

We learn life as a game
and just have to accept the rules.
For freedom and order
and what we want and what we should do.
winning and losing.
why is it so difficult for so many to try to get to the bottom of it?

it means everything,
but it doesn't have to,
if every one of us keeps together.
We could catch each other,
when we look like falling
instead of making the gap even wider
Track Name: Duct Hearts - This Has Taken Way Too Long
stars spell out your name
and there‘s better wishes to be made
than being sane again

but it‘s the best that I can do
the best that I can do is all that I can do

if I could ask you to wait...
if only I was strong enough to tell you now
the world is a fair less scary place when you‘re around

your heart is the biggest place I know
I‘m folded
I was drowned
I will find my own heart and home

but I can‘t find that place now
