Track Name: Convincer
I am no great convincer but easily convinced
is he a friend or an enemy who says that i can join him with his back against me
everything is liquid there is no structure in my mind

coincidence makes the world go round it drives you while you sleep
so why don't you stop trying and just let go you can not understand
what your life was planned to become
everything is liquid there is no structure in my mind

Although i know where im coming from that there's been paid for me
sometimes it seems that there's only dark things that i can expect
dark where you can't fall asleep to
everything is liquid there is no structure in my mind
Track Name: Join your friend
the silver foxes are the valid coin these days
the demagogue sign of your attitude remains
so you show your back to them
get the city to join your friend
but don't lose your breath
there's more than now and here
or through the sea that you were led

i can't believe nothing moves you when you dance
around so rash there must be some kind of scope to catch
so you show your back to them
get the city to join your friend
but don't lose your breath
there's more than now and here
or through the sea that you were led
Track Name: Common place
and the face i'm trying to read off the news
has a gift for making me a bit confused
i was thinking no one ever speaks the truth
none of them is answering the way they could

i couldn't see the common place
but now ive drawn it up in triplicate
can i still hand it in

nothing is free of obligations you see
everything ive thrown is coming back to me
but you were smiling and you kept on telling me
that i could be something less fragmentary

i couldn't see the common place
but now ive drawn it up in triplicate
can i still hand it in

i still don't know whatever possessed me to act
like all of this was not the most exceptional fact
don't object when i say that you're so alive
it is you that i want to pale beside

i couldn't see the commonplace that love is an act of your will
but now i've drawn it up in triplicate
can i still hand it in
Track Name: Backmask
I backmasked this message for you
cause i can't say it out loud
it would sound too random to you
and to the audience they must have their own shout

i'd like to call my family back home
to ease their excitement
and stress their worries but nothing is worse
than to backmask these words through to the telephone
Track Name: Gene
so this is a poem
i know i exist
a reason to show them
some things we have missed
i got nothing more to
offer than a view
put this finger on it
the place where it hurts
though it's frightening
we all know
this could prevent dirt

we have hope we are fine
