Wanna be on the road again Left behind the times Of broken beats Raw n’ lazy strumming, lazy strumming Like livin’ day by day Song by song and line by line Ain’t no shine When you’re done, you’re good to go I wanna be on the road again Far away from home tonite Wanna be on the road again Spread the songs, learn’em to fly Before the ride begins I feel as empty as a politician’s promise an empty promise To be there on the road, seein’ things I never saw before, right next door It’s the drive to the unknown I wanna be on the road again Far away from home tonite Wanna be on the road again Spread the songs, learn’em to fly And all these wishes all came true Just one last time now I’m good to go

We ain’t fallin’ back The day that I woke up and said to myself „It’s the day that I start on new songs“ It kicked my ass, was like fire and gas I’ll take what life’s got to give I gathered my boys and I told’em the plan They supported it right from the heart We brought it so far, band of brothers we are We don’t give a damn We ain’t fallin’ back, hit the sack As long as we live The more we will give And get back from you We never forget Can’t take it for granted the fire still burns It’s a blessing, side step the curse I got stories to tell, put in a spell Stayed awake four nights in a row I’ve been out in the mines, diggin’ for lines In the deepest black hole of my soul So the day ended up, it turned out ok Walked in the shadows of dust Chorus Who says, who claims what’s right or wrong Do you know the answer Hell, I don’t, no, we don’t So why not just go for the song Shut the fuck and sing along When it comes to the end and you did what you can Gotta make this feeling last You can’t say how, you can’t say when You never can tell

Inside out 03:27
Inside out Now it’s been a while Since I thought I’m gonna be ok I tried to sort it out But it held me in About a million times I put ya’ out of my head You found a way back home when I kicked you out It’s a dead end street For you and me You ain’t got a hold on me I never said that I agree To bring me down Lay your hands off me Cause I’m inside out What’s it all about I’m upside down And I can’t get up I was stuck in a room So big it could rain in it Was about to drown No exit light Ain’t no shadow of doubt I gotta break out Time is killing me and I’m killing time To wake you up Bring you back to life I am no good for you, you see Hey baby you’re no good for me Like the sound of a windmill goin’ round Stay away, back off, don’t stick around
4.
Johnny 03:19
Johnny Somewhere life is good n’ things go as they should Just another fool too far away from home New Orleans, Louisiana or up to Detroit Atlantic City and the east was won Buy the ticket, take a ride, it’s crystal clear This journey ends up in Las Vegas town It’s about this little something extra Made for a gamblin’ hand And it is that little something extra Made it the promised land Eye for an eye, bring the heart to fight As time goes by, put the spades down The sound of the dice and the thrill of the cards Johnny got addicted, went the whole nine yards Like Wild Bill Hickok and his dead man’s hand Six feet under in no man’s land But Johnny had an ace up his sleeve With a full house of money he prepared to leave Put on the pokerface, place the bet No mercy right from the start Don’t look back, don’t think twice Gotta be a vicious kind of a man
5.
Gotta move on Last night was a rough night You drank like hell and lost your mind One of these nights you wanna forget Black it out, you bet Go get yourself some lovin’ Go get yourself another kick Pretend to be what you wanna be Rattle on down the road Chorus You gotta move on Gotta go on You gotta hang on or you’ll fall of the track You get that same old feeling The day after the night before You messed it up, it echod back In your face, a whack Go get yourself some lovin’ Go get yourself another kick Pretend to be what you wanna be Rattle on down the road Chorus You gotta get movin’ You gotta keep movin’ on and on
6.
Denial of will All I know, you told me so Out of the blue, goin’ through I want you, I want you You’re on roll, dusty bowl I gotta follow, keep the flow ’Cause I want you, ’cause I want you How come I’m sad n’ blue Innocent man in a livin’ hell I’m lonley, I feel lonely Down in a ditch, out in the mud Up on the roof, pouring rain I’m lonely, I feel lonely Too blind to see, indifference only Livin’ in a cage of golden dreams Medication, deformation Go, wash away the pill of life By playin’ a different role Aiming for a different goal Tempation, isolation Dance in a fever all night long You got it all, you got it strong Damnation, consolation Chorus All I know, you told me so I gotta follow, keep the flow ’Cause I want you, ’cause I want you Go, wash away the pill of life

Man on the hill The duke of the west an island king In this one horse town Remember the summer remember the spring The seasons of life He’s all alone when leaves change their dress He’s all alone when winter is back to its best The wind from the north is cold and strong Lets people stay inside The weepin’ sound of a lonely bell A ragin’ storm outside A tiny house surrounded by the sea And a million dollar view only against COD (cash on delivery) Chorus Man on the hill There is no one around you All the faces you’ve seen All places you’ve been Man on the hill you need no one around You’ve been everywhere For the sake of burning moonshine As a friend you drink The mule died of age last year The keeper of the sheep You’re all alone when leaves change their dress You’re all alone when winter is back to its best Chorus The duke of the west an island king In this one horse town Remember the summer remember the spring The seasons of life

Kingdom of three Wide open land Out of command A river divides War on two sides The virtues of men Time and again Be honest and kind Sons of ancient times When the walls come tumblin’ down Betrayal of the ruler When the walls start closing in It’s time to rise again The story we know A long time ago The bravest of men Brought it to an end The kingdom of three The land of the free For how long it lasts ’Till history’s proved wrong Freedom is the cause that unites’em all A brotherhood based on a vow Sworn and bound to die Under a tree older than rain
9.
End of all trees Ride the storm black rain will fall Awaiting for the final call, be cautious Tonight’s the night Smoking lies in disguise Striking roots in fallow land A symphony for the beaten-down Chorus The end of all trees It’s the end of all trees (It’s) the end of the sun that shines in your face A concrete ocean up in space, be seated Good bye home Runnin’ down Babylon Got taken, busted, still alive The feed for hungry hands Chorus Revelation of avaricious men Right in the eye of the hurricane, left over Go save yourself Apocalypse of dust n’stones Battlefield of broken bones Gallows bird flyin’ high
10.
Crossfire 03:18
Crossfire Driven by sorrow beyond any doubt Caught in a crossfire, no one gets out What it’s like to lose it all No retreat, no defeat, no surrender at all Head down, raise the pikes And marchin’ off to foreign lands Crush the foe, paid to fight someone else’s war Swiss mercs in red coats Refusal to take prisoners Paid to die, no more chimes for yesterday’s crimes Chorus Cheap labor, no favor True lost of dignity State of rule, state of things, time of the kings Back home, change of life Work the fields lay down the shields Simple men, simple life, ain’t got no strife Chorus Brute force, straight forward Steamroller pike-attacks Served overseas and out in the east To lose it all, no retreat, no defeat, no surrender at all

Man, wood & steel All I ever wanted All I ever needed Was to stand right here with a guitar in my hand What I never wanted What I never needed To be a trumpet boy nor a piano man I knew this piece of wood ‚n’ steele was gonna be My ticket outta here Everyday I play along To my very favourite song I feel something true It’s gonna push me through From the gutter to the stage I’ve been to hell and back again When I got on that track Was never looking back All I ever wanted All I ever needed Was to be part of a mighty travellin’ band What I really wanted What I really needed To hit the strings hard and keep the beat No matter it’s a five piece bluegrass bash Or lousy one-man-trash Chorus Uhh my roots they like to boogie This down-under four letter lightnin’ band Made me mad, drove me nuts, I went crazy I got no choice, there I go again

Friday night 03:31
Friday night It’s monday morning 6 a.m., get out of the bed Man on the radio, a babbling voice said: If you look forward to mondays, the world is yours Waitin’ for the evening, jammin’ with the boys Another day, another song, a band to carry on Daily dose of satisfaction, tuesday’s gone with the wind Chorus The show was off the hook and the time was running wild Saturday to sober up and sunday promenade Six more days on the road of time and it’s friday night So wednesday is the day when the blues comes by to stay Big eyed boy, crooked smile, he’ll take you down to hell Pray for good, drink the wine, and soon, soon you’ll be fine Johnny walked the line with a pocket full of cash Boom chicka boom chicka boom boom down, a country boy inside On a thursday they said guilty and the judge’s gavel fell Chorus Chase the sun at crack of dawn The speed of sound and still electrified At the end of the play, the audience walks away No monday, no tuesday, no wednesday, it’s a friday night It’s monday morning 6 a.m., get out of the bed Man on the radio, a babbling voice said: If you look forward to mondays, the world is yours

No quick fix 04:12
No Quick Fix Reclaim the realm of snakes Burnin’ at the stakes Become a nervous wreck Waitin’ for friday’s paycheck No walkin’, just rollin’ Much talkin’, no listening There must be something fishy goin’ on You name it, trouble you can name Ten thousand steps a day That’s what they used to say Another piece of angel cake I ain’t no Mr. Drake No walkin’, just rollin’ Much talkin’, no listening There must be something fishy goin’ on You name it, trouble you can name Chorus It’s gonna get worse, sweet poison I love you Condition I’m in, where’s the kiss of life A helpless hand for these the deadly sins Perdition of masses, indeed (no matter of time) No comin’ home I ain’t got no quick fix But a handful of cheap tricks I got blackened by the sun Like justice with a gun No walkin’, just rollin’ Much talkin’, no listening There must be something fishy goin’ on You name it, trouble you can name
