You think you are a punkrocker you know what you do All the people around you they don’t have a clue
 The Berlin guys are in a crew
 Hipsters and fashion victims are in this group Oh it’s so sad man it’s all about tattoos,
leather jackets, party pix and mobile phones too but that’s the way you like it you are the real fool livestyle one and spirit zero you think you know it all
you`ve seen it before 
a million likes on facebook
there is no perfect score
 you turn from newschool to oldschool - your style hardcore
but the timeline`s running fast
and again you get bored 
sell the old get the new stuff always more and more
 but that’s the way you like it
the real fashion whore

The time has come to be alone again - I need it 
Feelings just destroy my life
 They just destroy my mind - I don’t need them Hey, leave me alone
I don’t need you anymore Love turns into hate
I’m drunk I’m in rage - Be careful 
Please close this chapter now Before it’s too late - Believe me Hey, leave me alone
I don’t need you anymore Can you feel the same
Can you feel the pain
In your heart and in your soul You don’t wanna go
But please - Please just go
 Leave me alone!

there was a time
I thought I rule the world I never walked alone always someone by my side I was standing high
I yelled it from the mountain try to convince the world
till my head was pounding but now I can see
I was so wrong
so sick and tired
of always being strong ooh - this is what they said to me come on boy - take the chance before the moment’s gone I faded out
all the things that broke me down but in the end I was the man lying on the ground unbreakable
those things are unpredictable
but when you come to the fore someday you reach what you adore

sundown behind the green fields
horizon fades to grey
dogs barking in the distance
leaves on the driveway are blown away half empty vintage malt
the taste of brighter days 
when your freedom wasn’t filled in a bottle and you lived it by your own way a frozen smile in disguise
a hollow heart’s the price
revenge of the duchess back away from her touches break out of the prison of lies Is that what you really wanted Is that what you really wanted what do you really want then? all that worthless things in mind
break the spirit of your soul 
there was an easy life without the daily grind nothing to lose and everything under control and that’s what people say there are no pockets in a shroud with empty hands on your way till the end of the road a frozen smile in disguise a hollow heart’s the price revenge of the duchess back away from her touches break out of the prison of lies Is that what you really wanted Is that what you really wanted what do you really want then?

She’s the best and she fucks the rest
I ask myself how could she be so fine
I’m far away and I miss her more and more every day trees passing by hit the road mile by mile 
another town - hit the stage play the clown 
I’m far away and I miss her more and more every day I’m far away... Everything I see reminds me of her
I fake a smile - repress desire for a while I’m far away and I miss her more and more every day

Don’t need your good advice Don’t need your trial
 Come on come on come on
 I believe in your disguise I believe in lies Come on come on come on Look at me - My powdered face Look at me - I shed my blood for you I’m on a nighttrain
 Come on baby join - next stop is luck We don’t give a fuck
 I’m on a nighttrain
 Come on baby join - next stop is pain Going down the drain I dance on a razors edge
I rip my flesh 
Come on come on come on I’m fast - I’m high octane I’m falling deep Come on come on come on Look at me - My bloody face
My way back home - Laid out for you

I never thought it would be easy
 But I never thought that it is so hard To live your life and to have fun 
And I never thought it drives me crazy Like a brainwashed dumb retard Chasing for what I deserve 
Wait for things to change or turn
 Do you know
Sometimes life really sucks It’s just a question of time Until I lose the game of life But this is how the cookie crumbles Decisions made by drawing lots 
But I’m the one who always draws the blanks So I try to do a walk on the easy streets 
Even if I know it’s out of reach
 Cause hope dies last but I’m dead loss
So I wait what’s next - Always on the run

I was looking forward to the summer cause I thought everything would change I thought paradise would come and the last tear has been cried I was waiting all the time for something But I knew it will not come 
The sea gives freedom but you have to Swim on your own And every time when I’m sitting here 
I can see the past years just passing by I keep on spinning on the wheel of fortune but it won’t stop the way I want
 All the lucky ones they woke up
 But I keep dreaming on And in the end summer is gone And I can see what I’ve done Next year I can listen to
To a brand new song And I don’t wanna be lazy and gutless anymore

Sitting here at the end of the day
nothing came my way - nothing came my way Sitting here, watching people stray
like they do it every day - do it every day Sitting here reflecting yesterday
It’s like playing memory - just like playing memory 
you decide what card you wanna cut
 what to remember and what not - to remember and what not I’m a loner - I’m a loner - I’m a loner - oho... They said you fooled me once could that be
you fooled me twice shame on me - really shame on me I am the last nail to my coffin 
you keep sighing while I’m laughing 
you do nothing cause I don`t need to be saved I’m a loner - I’m a loner - I’m a loner - oho... If that’s the reason why you came for there’s no one - no-one to blame for
 please don’t push me out of this state I’m in don’t you try - try to save me - while I’m such a lonely mess don’t you ruin my lovely loneliness!

Don’t tell me lies cause I know what’s going on I can see it in your eyes what you have done Hey don’t fool me - cause I know it
 You are just another groupie Cause you decide what’s right and wrong And I don’t know what you are doing Bitch Part of the game - now who is to blame
 Painted faces run all over the place
 My favourite hangout - get number one on the spot But you are nothing then a groupie
Just another groupie
