lyrics

what’s with joy and all the hope it brings
it leads you blindly to the cause
but you don't even know what's there
and you know you can't just break it off

'cause that's bad bad bad
and you know you can't be bad

they're just waiting around to set you up
they got fifteen knives for all your lust
and no one even knows you're there
you gotta find a way to make it up

i take off all my clothes and i throw them on the floor
i play dead like rabbits and let them search some more
i blink my lazy eye when you walk on by
and when the wall comes down i'll be behind

and just so you know
a long time ago your wrinkles started to show
and still you grow
still you grow

i wore a mask but they still recognized me
i turned a corner and i think they took the bait
now all that's fine
but it's no use to me
'cause i just want to know chameleon
how do you change color?

keeping all the goons at bay with hands alone
powerless to hope for some deus ex machina
we said our goodbyes
one last goodnight
and when the wall comes down i'll be behind

and just so you know
a long time ago your wrinkles started to show
but still you grow
still you grow
still you grow

We Used To Exist Berlin, Germany

Two peeps, three continents, too much time, not enough money... years of opposites. Hearts broken then repaired, hopes lost then found, albums kept in the cupboard and then finally released. My advice?

When the time is right you can breath. It's ok. Go on instinct. But know this...

Death is totally inappropriate. And besides, it makes you look pale.
