The prisoner is counting the days until he's free until he can walk outside and is allowed to see the sun The young man is counting the days until he's of age until he can buy some beer in the store and is allowed to get drunk Don't we all count the days? We count until we're no longer able to count but in the moment we're finished we start anew The young girl is counting the days until she's by his side again until she's allowed to see him and can feel his warmth The worker is counting the days until he gets some freedays until he's allowed to rest his hands and spend some days with his children Don't we all count the days? We count until we're no longer able to count but in the moment we're finished we start anew We all have these things that keep us going, that we live for We all have things that make us happy that nobody can take from us Don't we all count the days? We count until we're no longer able to count but in the moment we're finished we start anew

I walked past a wall and wondered about all the things surrounding me everthing was so grey and destroyed It seemed as if something had lost balance. I wanted to set things straight, but I couldn’t Then I realized, that I was stuck in a nightmare You always told me that I was already awakebut I didn’t want to believe you That’s why I rammed my head against the walls It almost looked like the blood trail was laughing at me maliciously. I began to run wanted to get away from everything didn’t want to see it anymore but every corner looked the same The movie was played over and over again and I was in the middle of it I tried so hard to wake up, but I couldn’t That was when I realized that I was stuck in a nightmare Everytime when I had found the door to get outside that would save me it led me into the same room that I had just left The feeling, that I ran deeper and depper into the maze and further away from the exit came over me. I tried so hard to wake up, but I couldn’t One day I could finally open my eyes and I went outside and wondered about the blood on the wall

There was a little boy, he was smaller than the rest of his class Sometimes he was very sad and alone But there was a world in which he was larger and stronger He even went to bad earlier so he could drift away for longer time He flew across fields an mountains, free as a bird he could feel the cold wind in each feather of his wings as long as he no longer had strength he woke up in his bed Let’s come together, let us sing my friends Let’s tell the story that believing never ends When nothing’s left, our dreams will stay When everything seems los, there’ll always be a way One day he found an old plan of model aircraft from his grandfather on the attic. He protected that plan like an treasure cause one day he wanted to built this little plane In his dreams he no longer had feathers but he sat in an aircraft wearing pilot glasses as long as the tank was emptied and he woke up in his bed

Life is like a rucksack you fill over the year but in the end you leave it behind Life is like a rucksack you fill over the year but in the end you can't take nothing with you So why don't you start collecting stories that even your children will tell each other? You can't take nothing with you on your last trip Your car is left behind in the garage and your money is worthless You should rather start enjyoing the moments of happiness So why don't you start collecting stories that even your children will tell each other You can't take nothing with you on your last trip There is so little time left until you have to leave your suitcase behind But your thoughts and your dreams you can take them with you on your last trip

Beneath us the burdens of the past dropped and discarded Covered with gras and stones as time went by One false step and the past erases the future One false step and there is no tomorrow How many more, tell me how many more have to go It's too late to make a difference but why don't we learn from it Why do we let things come so far over and over again? One false step and the past erases the future One false step and there is no tomorrow How many more, tell me how many more have to go Why does nobody realize that the future is so much more similar to the past, than we expect One false step and the past erases the future One false step and there is no tomorrow How many more, tell me how many more have to goaway

Have you ever heard the story of the path you can't walk alone The story of the path on which you should never lose sight of your ambition, on and on It's you and me who are gonna make it it's you and me, we will walk this path until the end Have you ever heard the story of the path you can't walk alone? but together we're strong enough to make it, on and on it's you and me who are gonna make it it's you and me, we will walk this path until the end If you'd ever lose orientation, take my hand, i'll show you the way. If you'd ever lose orientation, take my hand, i'll lead you back to our path and if you're ever gonna feel sad, remember and if you're ever gonna feel sad, remember my words and if you're ever gonna feel sad, remember my words it's you and me, we will walk this path until the end it's you and me, we will walk this path until the end and if you're ever gonna feel sad, remember my words
