Track Name: Kleine Einsicht
Kleine Einsicht (Little Insight)

All I wanna say is truth is inside you

When I need a smile I know I can find it in your eyes
And your breath even more
´Cause I trust my ears

All you gotta do is open your ears
And all you´re gonna feel is truth, so accept it

You can only win if you see there´s nobody to beat
So let your fears go
And get a bit of peace
Track Name: Blue Birds
Blue birds fly when the sun is gone
You can still hear them sing with the first sunrays
If you come really close, listen well
You will hear that their singing is crying

So the blue birds cry in the still of the night,
‘cause the one thing they’re longing to see
is the warm, warm sun

But the only way for them to face the day
Is change their colour

It’s never easy to change what you know
And it hurts, ‘cause it makes you so pure

But life is about decisions
So do what you have to do
You’ll forget the pain
Track Name: Hidden Dragon
Hidden dragon, grumbling tiger
You’ve come back here
To dance with me
Don’t you even want to ask me if I want you
But it doesn’t really matter
You’ve already won

I still know what it feels like when we become one
With you I’d climb the highest mountain
But you’ve become too strong, my friend
It seems I can’t handle you lately
Can we make it up again?

‘Cause I miss you like the warm, warm sun
I miss the strength you gave me
I miss you like an addict …
