Track Name: Wild Eagles
A shot, thunder
long pipes, smoke
smell rubber on asphalt
knock off the choke
tires on fire
nothing’s gonna take you higher

Wild Eagles
cool ride, with pride
Wild Eagles
see you on the road

Buddies are strong
ladies on the back
but the girls ain’t joking
watch your back
firing up their own bikes
sure to catch all eyes
they come along cruising
burning hot
til heart attack

Wild Eagles
cool ride, with pride
Majestic wings, spread out wide
can you hear their call
take a ride
Wild Eagles
a view of life through eagles eyes
Wild Eagles
so long, see you on the road

Lined up on stands
girls showing skin
enjoying air stream
Wild parties & rock'n'roll bands
from dusk til dawn
machines brand new
or tried and true
It’s a belief, a lifestyle
that you live up to
riding together
since 1992

Wild Eagles
cool ride, with pride
Majestic wings, spread out wide
can you hear their call
take a ride
Wild Eagles
a view of life through eagles eyes
Wild Eagles
so long, see you on the road
Track Name: By The Time You Get Married
Somedays are made for troubles
When you get the birching
There ́s no question about this
(It) can be hurting
Another slap in the face
Let ́s call it one for the road
But don ́t you lose your faith
We ́re all in the same boat
We’re all in the same boat

It ́ll be all healed up
By the time you get married
Won ́t be looking back
On the burden you carried
Turn your back on the black seeds around ya
Take a ride on your roller coaster

The head wind turns out smelly
So wind up the window
Your candy got jelly in your handbag
I guess that ́s done now
Did you pour the money down the drain
As long as you can
While the sun shines make hail
Cause money makes the man

It ́ll be all healed up
By the time you get married
Won ́t be looking back
On the burden you carried
Turn your back on the black seeds around ya
Take a ride on your roller coaster

Sometimes when you don’t move at all
When you’re still and quiet
Waiting for the ball
Hold on, let go
Take a step outside
Felt so tired for too long now
Fighting windmills on the spot so tall
Sit tight, you’ll catch the flow
You’ll be much faster after all

It ́ll be all healed up
By the time you get married
Won ́t be looking back
On the burden you carried
Turn your back on the black seeds around ya
Take a ride on your roller coaster
Track Name: Smile
My oh my here we are now
I´m speechless ran out of words wow
But I smile at you
Oh what else can I do

I was just about to give it up
My plan was really good but I messed it up
And then you showed up
Hey you just saved my butt

What else can I do
Than smile at you

You really know how to get me
Honestly you surprise me
That´s what you always do
Just too good to be true

Obviously I must be dreaming
Admit it you are an angel
Coming from high above
That´s what I heard of

What else can I do
What else can I do
What else can I do
Than smile at you
So I smile at you
So I smile
So I smile I smile at you

Now I smile at you
I smile
Yeah I smile
I smile at you

And maybe, we will see
I hope so, could it be
Maybe even you´ll smile back at me
Track Name: Go Pirates
You better tie your pants tight
The seas are getting rough
We ́re not scared, we go further
The stronger winds will blow
We got the coffer
Now let ́s get the treasure
Heading out for deep waters Yeah

Go, go Pirates go
We will wear your men down
Push you to the ground
Singin'
Go, go Pirates go
There´s no way we´ll leave you with the trophy, no

We sail close to the wind
Under the flag
A symbol of glory
No Prisoners we take
Go Hide next to your daughters
You should run for your life
these are our waters Yoho

Go, go Pirates go
We will wear your men down
Push you to the ground
Singin'
Go, go Pirates go
There´s no way we´ll leave you with the trophy, no

Damnation seize my soul
When I give you a quarter
Or take any from you
No bounds
No fear
For the glory we ́re here
To fight in a battle between 2 sides
With massive hits and crazy tries.
We will fight till the end
We’ll take all that you ́ve got
So bring it on
Take your best shot
Stand proud Pirates
Let ́s go
YO HO YO HO

Go, go Pirates go
We will wear your men down
Push you to the ground
Singin'
Go, go Pirates go
There´s no way we´ll leave you with the trophy
no, no, no
Track Name: Wake Up (Voices of Fukushima)
Everybody listen
To my story ´bout mom and child
When love was crushed by panic
In Fukushima

Why do we have to pay
Atonement of the past
Why do we have to pay
For our parents sins
We are all children of Gaia
Sharing agony and joy
Our hearts so delightful
If peace just gets a try

Where is my Daddy?
My baby cries every time
Her screaming voice makes me crazy
My mind wandering, hell
What a cruel woman I became
Now I´m the one to blame
Just wanted them safe
I´m gonna die instead

This was not my intention
I´ve done my best
Got out of Fukushima
Tore our family apart
No more touch for the heart
No more touch for the soul
We gotta take control
What´s the sin in our life

Divorce now, that´s what I said
If you won´t come with us
I´m not insane
Make up your mind
Wake up Japan
Nobody said such bad thing
Not a single word on TV
No word about the damage
Or the danger for our health

I was concerned
´bout my baby, I got so scared
Now I´m down, and I feel bad
Like I can never get up again
What a fool such a fool I am
My Baby´s starving
Now my babe, now my baby´s crying
If only I could die
If only I could die

You´re the one to choose
Your kid´s the one to pay
Track Name: Mhmmmargarita (Single Version)
It was a bar in Santa Fé, New Mexico
There was a gay waiter, he was ready to go
I asked him „what would you recommend?“
And then he laughed out loud and
Off he was my friend
Well, after five minutes as he finally came back
He brought me something to drink
That made my pupils go black

Margarita! Margarita! Margarita! Margarita!
La Senorita! Margarita! Con Tequila!

Me and my band, we were drinking some
Lots and some more
We had a funny conversation
´bout one thing you should know
Well, what you should know,
I can´t remember somehow
Call it conclusion of the day,
What we´re talking about
My sixth glass
And the things start twisting
You should try it yourself,
That´s how she´s kissing

Margarita! Margarita! Margarita! Margarita!
La Senorita! Margarita! Con Tequila!

I had one, I had two
I had a third one, how many had you?
No chance man, that I had ten!
No I´m not gonna pay that motherrockin´check!
They chucked us out, push came to shove
But was the first drink ever,
That I fell in love!

Margarita! Margarita! Margarita! Margarita!
La Senorita! Margarita! Con Tequila!
Track Name: Maybe (Acoustic Version)
It is you who became part of me
Is it me who became part of you
Just a matter of fact it couldn't work
It was too wonderful I guess

Maybe
Tomorrow you will hate me
Probably
You think the same about me
Don't know anymore
What's the best at all
'cause I can't help it
So maybe I will fall

I could cry and I know you know why
I could scream but again it's the same
Drinking again although I know it won't help me
I'm just trying to feel better anyway

Maybe
Tomorrow you will hate me
Probably
You think the same about me
Don't know anymore
What's the best at all
'cause I can't help it
So maybe I will fall

So I try not to think about it
No more aim so why I'm writing this down
Again it's hope that dies at last
I'm afraid instead will be me

Maybe
Tomorrow you will hate me
Probably
You think the same about me
Don't know anymore
What's the best at all
'cause I can't help it
So maybe I will fall
