about

With the album WILD WILD EAST we are returning to the past, but at the same time we are heading to a whole new world, where everything that has existed so far is changing rapidly. We collapse due to the speed of the times, we lose ourselves in virtual reality of Book of Faces, we play games from which there is no way back and power and money blow away our souls. We are lonely riders on the storm who still believe it all makes sense and it´s worth to FIGHT... our lives burn like fire, God knows if this love will never die.

Track Name: Big city
She’s crying, she’s crying and she’s dying
to get some rock’n’roll
Crying, she’s crying but she’s trying
to get a little more
Flying, she’s flying and she’s leaving
the place she was born
Flying from the hometown, such a small town
and so the story goes

Big city, one or another
Big city, no sister or brother
Big city, see it on the TV
Big city, show me kinda rock’n’roll

She’s crying, she’s crying and she’s dying
to get outta here
Crying, she’s lonely, such a small girl,
she wanna disappear
Flying, in the morning, in the evening
to see a better show
Flying to the hometown, such a small town
and so the story goes

Big city, one or another
Big city, no sister or brother
Big city, power and the money
Big city, gonna blow away your soul

And she’s crying and she’s dying
to get outta here
Crying and she’s crying and she’s trying
to get outta here

Big city, one or another
Big city, no sister or brother
Big city, see it on the TV
Big city, show me kinda rock’n’roll

And she’s crying and she’s trying and she’s lying,
this is her rock’n’roll
Track Name: Fight
Hello old friend, this is not the end
Just keep the faith and do it your own way
Fight for your life don’t cry at the pain
Fight for your mind to be all right again

When you feel weak when you feel so old
When time is your nightmare
And there’s nothing to hold
Fight, fight, fight,
Don’t give up the fight
Fight, Fight, Fight

Fight for your love, for your hope and faith
Now you are strong enough to change the fate
Let the sunshine stop this heavy rain
This is not the end, this is not the end

Fight, Fight, Fight

Fight for your dreams, just close your eyes
You can touch the sky, you can get so high
Fight in the west, fight in the east
Fight like a wolf, fight like a beast
You have the power to get more and more
Fight for your world to be like before
Fight, fight, fight,
Don’t give up the fight
Fight, Fight, Fight

Fight for your love, for your hope and faith
Now you are strong enough to change the world
Let the sunshine stop this heavy rain
This is not the end, this is not the end

Fight, Fight, Fight, Fight, FIGHT
Track Name: Book of Faces
Hey, what would you say
If I promised you a sunny day?
I don’t care where you stay
I can take you miles away
You never know where to go
You just walk the streets alone
Day and night, out of sight
But I may be your lover, be your friend tonight

We will get lost in the Book of Faces
We will get lost at the strangest places
We will get lost and leave no traces
We will just play, what d’you say?

Hey, what would you say
If I told you, you don’t have to pay?
Eat and run, that’s O.K.
Get some music and have a g’day
Pictures of you, pictures of me
You can browse my history
Let’s get tight, you seem to be bright
And I’ll be the rocket in your hand tonight

We will get lost in the Book of Faces
We will get lost at the strangest places
We will get lost and leave no traces
We will just play, what d’you say?

We were meant to be
Walking free in harmony
Go for wine or a cup of tea
Hand in hand with reality
Now I don’t know, something’s wrong
I am walking the streets alone
Day and night but that’s alright
If you just post a comment, give me one more like
Track Name: Human of Alien
I ’ve got a feeling I am out
Out of the space and out of time
But I am just a global slave
I have a problem to integrate
I used to waste my time and work
For some fucking Corporate
Six o clock morning every day I ask myself

Am I Human or Alien, Human or Spider

I met my Life Coach yesterday
He said that everything is OK
Just a little trouble on my mind
But I can join him

And I’ll be Human or Alien, Human or Spider

I wish I could swim in Dead Sea
Maybe I’ll be feeling good and sexy
Maybe I could take a cosmic holiday
Maybe I won’t be so high and dry

Am I Human or Alien, Human or Spider

I had crazy dream today
I got a metal chip in my head
Somebody’s screening all my mind
And I’m asking myself

Am I Human or Alien, Human or Spider

I wish I could swim in Dead Sea
Maybe I’ll be feeling good and sexy
Maybe I could take a cosmic holiday
Maybe I won’t be so high and dry
Track Name: Box
In the morning I hear the bell, I have to wake-up, who the hell …?
Postman stands behind the door putting box down on the floor
So I sign and say goodbye, close the door, then start to cry
There’s a note from my ex-friend, saying “Darling, it’s the end”

You and me,
two hearts were beating every time the same
You and me,
we saw the sunshine through a pouring rain
We could change the world
and everything was possible but now
I only feel, feel the pain, I feel the pain

Open box and see a ball, picture taken in the hall
There we kissed for the first time, you were ten and I was nine
Paper doll and plastic tree, rotten apple, is it for me …?
Tattered photo of my face and the writing “End of race”

You and me, two hearts were beating …

Are you really jealous, guy, run away, don't say goodbye?
Are you really (a) stupid jealous guy?

I am lying in my bed with the words you once have said
When you fell down on your knee, ring and flower, you and me
I hold the small ring in my hand, our key to magic land
We won’t meet there anymore, now my tears fall on the floor
Track Name: Call me Honey
Have a glass of wine, tell me I’m fine
Oh, call me Honey
Don’t be so shy, don’t close your eyes
Oh, call me Honey

We’ll be together
In a stormy weather
Oh, just call me Honey
Oh, just call me Honey

Another day, just walk this way
Oh, don’t call me Honey
Tried to be good, well understood
Oh, don’t call me Honey

We’ve been together
Birds of a feather
Oh, don’t call me Honey
No, don’t call me Honey

You walk away
You’re back again
Don’t know my name
Oh, you call me Honey
Oh, you call me Honey

People come and go, running back in time
I’m forever yours, you’re forever mine
People come and go, telling all the lies
Just like I never gonna give you up

People come and go, running back in time
I’m forever yours, you’re forever mine
Tell me I’m fine, tell me I’m fine … hold the line
Oh, call me Honey
Oh, call me Honey …
Track Name: Some people
Some people sleeping outside in the rain
Some children eat stone soup, what d’you say?
I’m walking through the night and thinking
Why their pain is a part of my life

Please tell me, where is the path, where’s the way?
I hear them cry and ask what d’you say?
I’m walking through the night and singing
How is life in Lost & Lonely bar?

Everybody talks to you
My life is full of the same half-truths
Everybody tells bad news
My tears fall down, please come to me soon

Don’t worry, come with me
Don’t worry, tell their stories
I’m dying to live free
In my small dark dirty territory

Is there really nothing to cure the pain?
Is there nothing we can do, what d’you say?
I’m walking through the night and singing
How is life in (the) Lost & Lonely bar?

Everybody talks to you
My life is full of the same half-truths
Everybody tells bad news
My tears fall down, please come to me soon
Track Name: On the run
I have to run, day’s begun, I got a gun
And before the night has come

I’m far far away, a new-born runaway
This is a desperate dream, I got a shotgun in my hand
Far, faraway, they’re gonna try to make me pay
I am a refugee, I gotta leave the hopeless land

Throw down the business suit, no money in my purse
You know that freedom is the little thing you just can’t buy
Riding in desert sand, just me and my horse
And I can see the rising sun
It’s a new day has begun
I’m on the run
Hey hey hey
I’m on the run

Their evil god is a vulture in the sky
And the law needs no reason why

I’m escaping and everybody cries, legions are aware, revealing every lie
Searching, sneaking, driving you back but this is the time they’re way off the track

Far far away, I’m a new-born runaway
This is a desperate dream, I got a shotgun in my hand
Far far away, they’re gonna try to make me pay
I am a refugee, I gotta leave the heartless land

Throw down the business suit, no money in my purse
You know that freedom is the little thing you just can’t buy
Riding in desert sand, just me and my horse
And I am blinded by the sun
It’s a new day has begun
I’m on the run
Today I’m far away
Today I’m far away …
Track Name: Wild wild East
Let’s take a walk
Walk on the wild side
If you’ll get in
You can’t go outside
And you can be
Hero or zero
You’re an Eastern star
Shining bright and far

Wild wild east, don’t tease the beast
Welcome, you will cast in Gangsters Paradise
Wild wild east, who will be released
You must be fast
It’s Gangsters Paradise

You played with fire
In the heat of the action
You stole big money
And satisfaction
Then someone said
We don’t need you boy
And you’re riding on a rat
And there’s no way go back

Wild wild east, don’t tease the beast
Welcome, you will cast in Gangsters Paradise
Wild wild east, who will be released
You must be fast
It’s Gangsters Paradise
Track Name: Riders on the storm
I’m on my way
No place here to stay
A haunting noise of thunder
As I wander down the same
Lonely road

A storm goes at my heels
And storm-crows have reappeared
Crying all around
And the sound’s so unreal
It’s dead and cold

Dear Lord up there in heaven
Tell me when I will reach the end

We are riders, we are riders
We are riders on the storm
We are riders, we are riders
On that long and lonely road

Let me know how to carry on
Let me know how to grow stronger
‘Cause tomorrow may never come
To the rider on the storm

Falling up and rising down
Question-marks all around
Sunshine is there for me
But in the end ain’t no victory
Without love

Dear Lord, it’s such a long road
How could I walk it all alone?

Let me know how to carry on
Let me know how to grow stronger
‘Cause tomorrow may never come
To the rider on the storm

We are riders, we are riders
We are riders on the storm
We are riders, we are riders
On that long and lonely road
