Beborn Beton · A Worthy Compensation

Beborn Beton · A Worthy Compensation

01 · Daisy Cutter

I am crawling through the thicket of my own jungle
I am wading in the swamp of the heart
I could make it on my own if I would not stumble
And have not lost track right here from the start

All these people left and right must be dead already
But in fact they act as if they don't know
They have fallen with the darkness their eyes unsteady
Should've gone, but they're not ready to go

Will you cut off the palm trees around me?
I'm calling daisy
Will you break down the walls that surround me?
I'm calling daisy

I am searching for the man that I thought I could be
Now I feel my mind is falling apart
I got stuck inside the brushwood of mediocrity
The land I seek is not on my chart

Do you think it's in my genes that I'm determined to fail
Will I be melting like a flake into snow
My eyes are shining brighter than the shiniest pale
I am still walking but I'm talking too slow

Will you cut off the palm trees around me?
I'm calling daisy
Will you break down the walls that surround me?
I'm calling daisy

02 · I Believe

I am able to talk now
Been fighting the pain
Have mentally been to the gutter
But I'm back again
Got my sanity back, my heart remains broken

Always entwined
Even when we're apart
One in soul, one in mind
Let alone one in heart
And one day we'll meet because

I believe in love
I know there's still an angel that's awaiting me
She's the one and she belongs to me
I believe in love
And if my heart keeps bleeding I will handle it
Tears are only water spawned from pain

Was it you who defined me or was it just me
I'd melt into you now I find we were not meant to be
It's been too many thoughts too little words spoken
I can hardly believe that we didn't come true
The fuse has been laid but the shell never blew
Still I'm saving a match for you

I believe in love
I know there's still an angel that's awaiting me
She's the one and she belongs to me
I believe in love
And if my heart keeps bleeding I will handle it
Tears are only water spawned from pain

03 · 24/7 Mystery

Every time she graces a room with her presence she owns it
Yes, she owns it
Everybody's heads turn, everybody waits for a sign
Watching her every movement

She's got troublesome written all over her body
What a body
She's not playing by the rules she is making her own

Everyone would die for a smile on her face as she passes
As she passes
She's a weapon and you wish that the safety was on
As if you'd seen it coming

Everything that she puts on her skin is forbidden
It's forbidden
It's her way of letting you know she's got nothing to hide

She's hotness, she's the devil
She's a mystery I'm about to unravel
I gotta make sure I am not fooled this time
She's pure, she's heaven,
She's a mystery for me 24/7
I don't know about her, but I wish she'd be mine

How was I to know she's even prettier though on the inside
On the inside
She's the one that not gonna let you down
A paradigm of virtue

She's got style and an incredible smile in the morning
She's got me to believe it's a wonderful life

She's hotness, she's the devil
She's a mystery I'm about to unravel
I gotta make sure I am not fooled this time
She's pure, she's heaven,
She's a mystery for me 24/7
I don't know about her, but I wish she'd be mine

04 · Anorexic World

Sometimes I fear the hate of God
Sometimes I feel that things do not
Work out according to his plan
Time to shut down the project, man

What if the prophecies were true?
What if our time was overdue?
Do we deserve a second chance
To make his planet good again?

We travel down this road forever
And I fear we're getting nowhere
A cross hangs from the rear view mirror
What if Jesus doesn't care?

Do we not mind at all?
This anorexic world is going down
How long
Before we're gonna make it on our own?

See, I still haven't lost my faith
In acts of mercy and in grace
I still believe in things I've read
The book of love reads pretty bad

I know that things have been fucked up
The trust of God has been betrayed
So read my lips and hear me pray
Let's make this world a better place

We travel down this road forever
And I fear we're getting nowhere
A cross hangs from the rear view mirror
What if Jesus doesn't care?

Do we not mind at all?
This anorexic world is going down
How long
Before we're gonna break it

We don't mind at all
This anorexic world is going down
How long
Before we're gonna make it on our own

05 · A Worthy Compensation

My heartbeat goes inexplicably fast
If you devour me, will I last?
For more than a few, more than a few
For more than a few moments in time

Your fragile hands take control over me
You say we're meant to be, I so do agree
Do you wanna come along? Come along
Do you wanna come further with me?

I'm going further down
Am I going down?

I'm not supposed to drown
My drinking from the chalice
shall not be frowned upon
No further malice taken
You are not the one
To let me down

You look at me, tell me what do you see?
Do you wanna stay with me and clear the debris?
Finish what we have begun, have begun
Celebrating our intimacy

It's got to be forever
We're headed the same way
A worthy compensation
For the price we had to pay

And what brought us together
That got us from the rear
It leaves us with a notion
Choices are not ours to make

And fate must not be feared

I'm going further down
Am I going down?

06 · Last Day on Earth

Do you remember
Your last day on earth
It isn't that far away from now
Be sure that I remember

Thought it's a burden
I was thankful to be
Holding your hand at final breath
Inhale
Exhale

Here lies the man that gave me home
And the chance to be whatever I wanted to
One of these days you'll understand
No one stays forever
But being sad is not that bad

No single day
On which I don't miss the man
That I owe everything I know
My life, my happy endings

Give me the words
Tell me what fatherhood means
It is my boy in his hand a stone
I found with you ages ago

Here lies the man that gave me home
And the chance to be whatever I wanted to
One of these days you'll understand
No one stays forever
But being sad is not that bad
Whatever

I like to make myself believe
That you are
Floating on air sitting on a cloud
Watching the sun goes up and down

I know that you are somewhere
Waiting for me
Clearing my head I can hear your voice
"I am fine when you're with me"

Here lies the man that gave me home
No one stays forever

07 · She Cried

I watched the sun go down in flushing today
Sense the beauty of a little child's play
I need my pace and reputation to keep
And I breathe

The city feeds on the beats we produce
Like a machine that is never to soothe
I got a tune that holds the entire truth
And I breathe

Do you feel the high?
My shy little girl come closer to me
She cries as I write my name
And it feels so right
A face in the crowd is smiling at me
Smiling at me tonight
She cries as I write my name

I've seen a thousand pairs of eyes in L.A.
Remember feeling like a king for one day
Happy as long as the boys are with me
And I breathe

We made a promise to return pretty soon
Deep in our hearts there is plenty of room
Pieces of you kept as memories in me
And I breathe

Do you feel the high?
My shy little girl come closer to me
She cries as I write my name
And it feels so right
A face in the crowd is smiling at me
Smiling at me tonight
She cries as I write my name

08 · Was Immer

Diese Stadt lebt noch immer,
oft schon gestorben.
Asphaltweiße Streifen
im Scheinwerferlicht.
Wir jagen Schatten,
es graut schon der Morgen.
Der Wind weht dir dein Haar ins Gesicht.

Diese Nacht ist Geschichte,
lass sie uns schreiben.
Ratio war gestern,
wir kannten uns nicht.
Der Verstand klinkt sich aus,
wir lassen uns treiben.
Wer will schon wissen, was morgen ist.

Was immer du mir sagen willst:
Lass es sein.
Jedes Wort wäre hier zuviel.
Zerstör nicht diesen Augenblick.
Mach dich frei davon.
Wir sind noch nicht am Ziel.
Wer weiß wie lange uns noch bleibt.
Nutz die Zeit!
Komm und flieht mit mir.
Was immer deine Mutter sagt:
Sie hat recht!
Ich bin schlecht,
doch nicht zu dir.

Auf der Flucht vor der Wahrheit
atmen wir Träume.
Getrieben von Sehnsucht,
umspült von der Gischt.
Salz auf der Haut,
der Duft naher Bäume.
Ein Leuchtfeuer entflammt und erlischt.

Diese Nacht belibt für immer,
einzig und kostbar.
Gestrandet im jetzt,
das du nie mehr vergisst.
Jahre vergingen,
ich suche nach Freiheit.
Konnte ich wissen,
dass du es bist?

09 · Terribly Wrong

I am standing at the edge of the world
One step away from the man that I used to be
Staring at the moon and the stars
To find out we're nothing

You are standing at the edge of the world
One step away from you being stuck with me
Staring through the grey of your eyes
I fear we are nothing

We will be moving on
May the sea be troublesome
We are here
But there is something missing
Something that is terribly wrong

I don't care what you do
I won't change my point of view
You're with me
But there is something missing
Something that is terribly wrong

Shine a light into the dark of our hearts
Taking a step, a step towards our destiny
Rising like a flame from a spark
Awake and convincing

We will be moving on
May the sea be troublesome
We are here
But there is something missing
Something that is terribly wrong

I don't care what you do
I won't change my point of view
You're with me
But there is something missing
Something that is terribly wrong

I am standing at the edge of the world
Staring at the moon and the stars
To find out we're nothing

10 · Who Watches the Watchmen

You have been broken, you are lost
Not so much unlike me
There are no secrets left
Just hidden truths that lie beneath

The surface, a purpose
Is our forced decree
You're aware that you're in need
Of psychiatric care

It won't be me
It won't be me

You think I'm joking, but I'm not
Fun evaded me
Who draws the line
Between a laugh and life's perversity

A religion, conviction
Of our true beliefs
Love is rare and that's the truth
There's nothing left to share

It won't be me
To take the fall for you
It won't be me
To tell you what to do
It won't be me to pick you up
From where you left

This much is true
It won't be me
To get you
Back on your own feet again
I won't be there for you

The quest for eden
Clearly led us to our wildest dream
Eternal darkness of the soul
We lost our self-esteem

Corruption, destruction
Of what we hold so dear
What's the use of living
When each day we live in fear

It won't be me
To take the fall for you
It won't be me
To tell you what to do
It won't be me to pick you up
From where you left

This much is true
It won't be me
To get you
Back on your own feet again
I won't be there for you
