As the colors of love digress The days that we have are less While the colors of love progress The days that we have are less Colored while love in distress Is making our time feel less As the colors of love digress Our time is now meaningless ‘Cause the colors of love are best Felt when time hasn’t passed the test When time hasn’t passed the test Time hasn’t passed the test

Takeover 04:46
Awesome baby It’s a game to me Going to the river now I’m gonna see My awesome baby Be good me The sun loves you Like you love the sea Awesome baby It’s gonna be OK Nothing is to spoil Our perfect day You’re gonna shake me Yes you shake me, baby Uh-uh-uh darling Uh-uh-uh, you shake me good Moving over to the city bay Running to the square to look for bait Could you peek inside that hall? We could play a prank or two, open a few doors Nothing’s gonna stop us, ‘cause we went insane No one’s gonna see us, but we’re here to stay and play the game Running through the bay Yeah Oh, baby, see me See me like the sun Oh, baby, see me See me like the only one It’s about time You get closer and closer And take me over Just take me over Hold me, it’s gonna take a while This sight What a sensation In my imagination It’s not a conversation Oh, oh, no – it’s loads of fun You taking over Kiss me all over And aliens exist ‘cause they kiss, yes they kiss Aliens exist ‘cause they kiss, yes they kiss All over Even when they’re sober And aliens exist ‘cause they kiss, yes they kiss Aliens exist ‘cause they kiss, yes they kiss And they’re taking over Yes, babe, kiss me all over Many dreams Start like this Many sins Are Like This Flying away Flying away Flying away Smoking away Kissing away Fading away Flying away

It’s just another day of summer It’s just another day of hope It’s just another day of summer It’s just another day of hope There’s no love Still no love There’s no love This summer Maybe these are all things I forgot I’m the fastest one to wrap and pack Maybe this is all that I’ve been told All excuses tend to get too old Too old Too old And for now, it is my only path To retrieve the lost ones and their wrath Still for now it is my only path Close my eyes and you’ll begin to see Close my eyes and you’ll begin to see I’m moving on I’m moving on I’m moving on I’m moving on This summer Close my eyes and you’ll begin to see

Husky Eyes 02:40
Husky eyes Husky eyes Over the frozen sea On a ferry You keep warming me This is the journey Towards the North Star The North Star Not too far Over the frozen sea You and me On the ferry Husky soul, simply Release me My frozen hands know what to do Never apart we find truth My breath is weak, but I got you I got you I found you Keep telling me lies with your Husky eyes Keep on telling me lies with your Husky eyes So keep telling me lies with your Husky eyes Keep on telling me lies with your Husky eyes Like “There is another day” Like “There is another day” And you will stay And I will sway Out of this grave While you take me away

Free Lunatik 01:32
Helpless dancer something’s gone wrong I don’t know why someone’s been stealing my song We take the floor as the floor takes us all Hopeless romantics are thrown out the door Baby I’m free Can you see, do you see? Love is just like me Loose harmony We burn Out C’mon Simple, simple Synchronicity Simple, simple Twisted heresy Simple, simple Spree of poetry Simple, simple Feeling symmetry Feel good, trip all Seed it, your soul Feel good, pop all Lunatic, don’t fall You’re a free lunatic after all Helpless dancer something’s gone wrong I don’t know why someone’s been stealing my song We take the floor as the floor takes us all Hopeless romantics are thrown out the door

Move like the wind Flow like a stream You dare soothing me You dare soothing me You don’t care And you slide carelessly You dare soothing me You dare soothing me You don’t care How you get love Care how it goes Care how you get love Care how it goes While you move like the wind While you flow like a stream You’re feline, you’re a dream Never stop ‘til you win You dare soothing me You dare soothing me You dare soothing me You dare soothing me You don’t care

Riot! As you take to the streets, you got no hope As you got no hope, you feel no love Yeah the city is warm, and their hearts are cold Their hearts are cold and they wait for you to get old And fear is music they can all hear Fear is music they can all hear Loud and clear Play it Play it Play it Now No more television No more television Come get closer Closer, you dog Come feel the void This lowdowntown A new round Lighting up the fire Dynamite for hire Lighting up the fire Dynamite for hire Burn to the ground No ID card Burn to the ground No ID card Riot your soul No crowd control Riot your soul No crowd control Break the broken glass Reality’s too fast Break the broken glass Reality’s too fast As you take to the streets, you got no hope As you got no hope, you feel no love Come get closer Closer, you dog Come feel the void This lowdown Riot! No more television No more television

We’ll move to Berlin Move to Berlin Just as soon As this isn’t a dream We’ll move We’ll move to Berlin Just as soon as we get on our feet We can walk, we can meet We can sleep, we can dream One day we’ll move to Berlin We’ll take all those walks down in Kreutzberg Drink in a bar in Moabit Stay for a while, just a bit After we get on our feet We’ll take a ship on the Spree Unpack the suitcase, and get laid Stay out of touch and harm’s way I swear we can clean both our acts in Berlin Even if we might take one or two for the team Better than to stay here, and die in a dream Yes we can make it, and move to Berlin And it will be clear What we can do here It will be clear Once we move Now all we see is this man with the mask Calling my name Dancing on to this beat Will we get on our feet? Will we get to the square? Look back if you dare Now all we see is this man with the mask Going insane We never had a plan We’ve never been aware We never had a care To move anywhere Air, I need air Air, I need air Pick up the suitcase Forget the gun Jump on a plane and You’re anyone Out of this city And into this dream How did you get here? We’ll move to Berlin Move to Berlin

Just like the sun and the moon Always miss each other by a glimpse too soon Now we are saying goodbye Now we are saying goodbye We can imagine parallel lives Simple enough, just close your eyes As we are saying goodbye As we are saying goodbye And the colors of love digress Cause our time here is meaningless While the colors of love progress The days that we have are less Colored while love in distress Is making our time feel less And the colors of love are best Felt when time hasn’t passed the test When time hasn’t passed the test When time hasn’t passed the test
