Track Name: Lemonade
Kids write poems in arabic on the walls
The war is fed with TV murmurs
Roof’s on fire and we pray to youtube stars
So long to later on
I hear the guns
I hear the guns
Orange fibers will explain it all
Your stubbornness and
the next great world war
Orange fibers are all that is between
State security and lemonade dreams
lemonade dreams
Our daddies polish armour underneath their summerhouses
And I’m tired of holding on to
Those bits of news from the old neighbourhood:
Be afraid of the dark
Be afraid of the stranger things
the greater things
that will take us apart
will take us apart
Orange fibers will explain it all
Your stubbornness and
the next great world war
Orange fibers are all that is between
State security and lemonade dreams
lemonade dreams
Track Name: Prototype
You never found that place to go, where people hand out badges,
and no one needs to know where you came from
better eat your greens all up cause you know when you cut them out
all will collapse and break down
Are we moving to fast, are we missing out on the beautiful scenery outside the window
Or are we alseep with lit phones in our hands and a bottle of something empty
I seriously dont know
But if you ever dare to ask again
Half empty or half full
Oh- oh - oh - oh - oh

I'm so tired
It makes me angry
Makes me sad
And i don't wanna try
Love is in the roots
and so is Revolution
I dont wanna die

Find another face
Find another face
Find another face for us to cover
Find another girl
Find another girl
Find another girl
Find another girl

So I threw the whole pack away in an attempt to stay
a better person all along for so long
I have always been the one people tend to say about
well shes always loud, and bearly knows when
So i tried my best to be a hell on wheels but in the end i feel
that there is nothing left i could work with

Are we moving at all are we standing still
Are we ripping apart all the papers and bills that we horded
Or are we asleep underneath a ridiculous pile of old childhood beliefs

See what I am in the end
Is a respectable blend
Of people that I like
And i'm not sure that there might
Be - A- ny- thing - Left

I'm so tired
It makes me angry
Makes me sad
And i don't wanna try
And so is Revolution
We dont wanna die
Find another face
Find another face
Find another face for us to cover
Find another girl
Find another girl
Find another girl
Find another girl
Track Name: Animal Kingdom
(in part by william stafford and his poem ‚outside‘)

The least little sound sets the Coyotes walkin
Walking the edge of our comfortable earth
we all look inward but all of them
Are looking towards us as they walk the earth
We need to let animals loose in our houses
The wolf to escape with a pan in his teeth
And streams of animals towards the horizon
Racing with something silent each
In the face oft he dawn of the day
You feed me
In the face of the deep dark night
I’m hungry
In the face of the dawn of the day
I fight

I wanna be heard
I wanna be heard
Our bodies
Are open
I wanna be heard
For all we have taken into our keeping
And polished with our hands, belongs to a truth
Greater than ours, in the animals keeping
Coyotes are circling around our truth
In the face oft he dawn of the day
You feed me
In the face of the deep dark night
I’m hungry
In the face of the dawn of the day
I might
I wanna be heard
I wanna be heard
Our bodies
Are open
I wanna be heard
I wanna be heard
Track Name: Hemingway
The way you wear your hair today is different and it makes me wonder
How long has it been that Ive been living in those jeans
You‘r obviously older and your pretty but pretenious
And Im trying not to give a fuck, what you think of me
What you think of me
What you think of me
You pile up words like Hemingway and Charles to feel alive again
I’m bored but also kinda lonely
Still not buying what you do to me
What you do to me
what you do to me
What you do to me
AND I
CARE AGRESSIVELY
AND I
SAY BETTER DO NOT MESS WITH ME
MY HEART
IS AS BIG AS YOUR MOUTH AND
SEA AND SALT WILL WASH EVERYTHING OUT
SEA AND SALT WILL WASH EVERYTHING
OUT OF YOUR MOUTH
Although you figured out
i might indeed be worthy of your time
you answered all my questions
And you had some beer i had some wine
you called me inspirational
I said I’m medicated
And i havent talked to anyone
In the past couple of days
In the past couple of days

AND I
CARE AGRESSIVELY
AND I
SAY BETTER DO NOT MESS WITH ME
MY HEART
IS AS BIG AS YOUR MOUTH AND
SEA AND SALT WILL WASH EVERYTHING OUT
SEA AND SALT WILL WASH EVERYTHING
OUT OF YOUR MOUTH
Well shes just as cool as the books that I read
So I turn to those stories instead

AND I
CARE AGRESSIVELY
AND I
SAY BETTER DO NOT MESS WITH ME
MY HEART
IS AS BIG AS YOUR MOUTH AND
SEA AND SALT WILL WASH EVERYTHING OUT
SEA AND SALT WILL WASH EVERYTHING
OUT OF YOUR MOUTH
Track Name: Borderland
have you ever read a history book
have you ever seen, just how many stones it took
to build a wall, that would keep them all in place
always a thousand more
still a thousand more
always a thousand more
than they had

in berlin the animals were crossing paths
with bodies shot to stillness in the higher grass
have you ever counted just how many guns
always a thousand more
still a thousand more
always a thousand more
than they had


Break shit down
Show softness in the face of stone
Count with an explosion right there where
All explosives seem long gone

Fall falls hard with every word they speak
Amplfying death with every word the speak
have you ever listend to the silence that
is asleep beneath
the grass and roots so deep
is asleep beneath
is now awake


Break shit down
Show softness in the face of stone
Count with an explosion right there where
All explosives seem long gone

we owe you one
we owe you two
we owe you everything that we could care to do
we owe you shit
please understand
that we will pay it back in every way we can
