Musik wie eine Reise im Wohnmobil mit deinen besten Freunden, Jack Johnson und Johnny Cash. Entspannt. Komfortabel. Für alle Bedürfnisse ist gesorgt. Draußen fegt eine interessante Landschaft nach der anderen an dir vorbei und wenn du von der Schönheit übermannt wirst, hältst du an und verweilst. Jetzt ist erstmal Brotzeit.

Track Name: Back Home
BACK HOME

Shiggeding shiggedäng shiggedong
Shiggedägge on the radio
I turn it up, bapparrap,get it up
Singing „he-he-here we go“

It’s been a long time, been a long time
From the day that I left my home
And my guitar, u-la-la, immer da
You never wa-a-alk alone

Back home
Back home
Let’s go back home

Oh man, I talk and I talk and I talk
And then I stop with an empty brain
And then i listen listen listen listen
Listen listen listen till I go insane

I wanna to sleep in my bed wanna sleep
In my kusche-kuscheliges Bett, yow
Boa, jetzt, ne Pizza‚ ne Cola und das allein
Wär so richtig richtig fett, yow

Back home
Back home
Let’s go back home

Back on the road in the car, ha-ha
The best buddy is our radio
Playing a song of the fresh Johnny Cash
On the ste-e-erio

And when we all feel sick then the trick is
Having a fruity juice, jow
Because we know, this is the way
To kill that funky blues, jow

Back home
Back home
Let’s go back home
Track Name: Beifahrersitz
BEIFAHRERSITZ

I will be driving down to Italy
I will be singing in my car
230 miles ahead of me
Until it gets me where you are

My old Mercedes is a good one
It’s gonna carry you and me
And I put a rose on the beifahrersitz
Beifahrersitz, beifahrersitz

I got you
I got you
Down to rome
I got you

I’m gonna show you Monte Carlo
I’m gonna take you to the sea
We could be sleeping in the auto
We could be sleeping by the beach

I can’t believe it when I look at you
I can’t believe you married a monkey like me
So I put a rose on the beifahrersitz
Beifahrersitz, beifahrersitz

I got you
I got you
Down to rome
I got you

And when it rains I’ll hold you close yo me
Ye, I will never let you go
You got my love, you got my guaranty
That I will be always there for you

We’ll sing and dance and cry together
We’ll put our trust into the lord

I got you
I got you
Down to rome
I got you
Track Name: Feels Like Shit
FEELS LIKE SHIT

I give it all up
I let it all go
Cause it doesn’t matter to my show

It feels like shit
It feels like nothing
Oh how I can’t stand it
To be the center of this one-man-show

But you are the rock
Upon which I stand
And nothing else matters in the end

With all my heart I wanna hang with you
With all my voice I wanna sing for you
Take all my fears and give me truth
With all my heart, Jesus, I long for you

I give it all up
I let it all go
Cause now you are the center of my show

With all my heart I wanna hang with you
With all my voice I wanna sing for you
Take all my fears and give me truth
With all my heart, Jesus, I long for you
Track Name: Creationist
CREATIONIST

So cool, when I look at my brother
So cool, now that he is a father
And when he told me about the baby's birth
He was crying for joy and lost for words
Fancy - two people make love
And what comes out is new life
And this is why it is, I’m a creationist

I’m getting up and I’m thinking about
I wanna stop and then sing it all out
In the morning sun, in the morning sun
I look at me and I got it alright
Oh I believe that I am living a life
In the morning sun, in the morning sun

So cool, I was thinking of music
And it doesn’t make sense to me at all
I was thinking about rhythm, pitch and harmony
And how it can touch a wicked soul
I was thinking about love, beauty and sex
And this is why it is, I’m a creationist

I’m getting up and I’m thinking about
I wanna stop and then sing it all out
In the morning sun, in the morning sun
I look at me and I got it alright
Oh I believe that I am living a life
In the morning sun, in the morning sun
Track Name: I Made A Promise
I MADE A PROMISE

I made a promise, I made a promise, forever to stay
Until I go hopping into my coffin, I promised to stay
Oh, and I got you saying the same

It’s a powerful beauty
And the beauty will stay by the duty to stay

Baby I told you, that I will hold you as long as I live
I gotta stay ever, there will be never, never an „IF"
It’s easy to split up, harder to stay

It’s a powerful beauty
And the beauty will stay by the duty to stay

Nobody told me, loving was easy
Oh, but I promised you to stay
I gotta stay ever, I gotta go never
Baby I promised you to stay

It’s a powerful beauty
And the beauty will stay by the duty to stay
Track Name: Drown It In Your Blood
DROWN IT IN YOUR BLOOD

Look at me, what I have done
Sinful like no other
Once again my heart has gone
Ways I never wanted

Oh, drown it in your blood

The story of your endless love
Of purity on crosses
Of sin, loosing its curse on me
Of devil’s sting is now broken

Oh, drown it in your blood

The story that my grandma told
Of greatest desperation
To others she’s just grey and old
But she talks my rock foundation

Oh, drown it in your blood
Track Name: Frogsong
FROGSONG

Baby baby, let me be
Your frog, singing in the sea
Take me in and take me out
Give me reason give me hope

I’m a prince, moved into a frog
And day by day I’m watching out
Waiting for your princess face
Give me reason give me grace

Baby, you should know, that I am waiting here

One day I went to a fish
It said to me, that it would wish
that I could find another frog for me
But then I told it, that I don’t belong to water

And then when I have looked above that fish
I saw you standing by the sea
And then when I have left the water world for you
You haven’t even seen me and left the place

Baby, you should know, that I am waiting here
Baby, you should know, that I will cry no tear
Track Name: Death
DEATH

Death is so powerful
when death steps in your way
Breathing in and out
You think, forever you will stay

But don’t rush - Death will get you anyway

Dying is for others
When your end seems far away
And how about your philosophies
When this is your last day

But don’t rush - Death will get you anyway

Storing gold an silver
As you’re working overtime
At least you try your best, you think
And this is honorable, you find
Then suddenly, that cancer hurts your invincibility
And money helps you nothing to survive, as you can see

But don’t rush - Death will get you anyway
Track Name: Sold My Life
SOLD MY LIFE

I sold my life to the shepherd
So that I’m a sheep in his herd
I heard him calling to believe him
And it was taking me a long long time to understand
Till then I found: The Shepherd is my lifewest in the end

And when I’m dead, I’m no more lonely
Hanging out with the one and only
With the shepherd, cause I’m in his herd
And it was taking me a long long time to understand
Till then I found: The Shepherd is my lifewest in the end

Surely, when I leave this life
Surely, I will dance and jive
Surely, when I’ll sing my song
Surely, with no flesh and bones
Surely, I will shout

And when I’m dead, I’m no more lonely
Hanging out with the one and only
With the shepherd, cause I’m in his herd
And it was taking me a long long time to understand
Till then I found: The Shepherd is my lifewest in the end
Track Name: Wine In Cana feat. Jan Jakob - Great Mountains
GREAT MOUNTAINS (Wine In Cana feat. Jan Jakob)

I got something to discover
It’s the world in my own heart
Stranger’s faces, brand new places
And the stories about your grace

Take the courage to make a start
If we seek, we will find
At the end of the world we will see the truth
If you lead me, I will fallow you to

Great mountains
Wild rivers
Deep valleys
Endless sea

This path is not like we imagined
It’s maybe crooked and we get lost
It’s getting harder and harder to keep our faith
But If you lead me I will fallow

Great mountains
Wild rivers
Deep valleys
Endless sea
Track Name: Early In The Morning
EARLY IN THE MORNING

Early in the morning I got ready for the day
Early in the morning I sat down and tried to pray
But I somehow couldn’t, I was thinking by myself
That I won’t survive the day

Forgot to prepare Uni, forgot to pay the rent in time
And I missed my friends, to share and talk about life
I ran out of money, ran an empty bank account
And that made me come to you

It was one of those days, that I barely wish to move
Simply one of those days without joy without a groove
And I felt like a sad song, when a happy song you gave

Now Jan, Take that guitar, the broken string don’t matter
Listen carefully and sing along with me

And as you gave me this song
As all my fearing was gone
And as I went to Uni
I could see myself dancing

Early in the morning I was dancing all around
I heard choirs singin, and they knew the greatest sound
And I praised the lord wor beeing who he is
Early in the morning - Nothing better than this
Track Name: Fall Asleep
FALL ASLEEP

I’m a mess
I’m lying on my chest
weary and done of the day
I got money to earn
I got a lesson to learn
But know it’s time to fall asleep

I’m trying on a book
But my eyes refuse to look
Slightly I mix it into my phantasie
I got you on my mind, you o my mind
You stay awake as I fall asleep

I’m so tired
But thats alright
Moving from back unto my side
I got you on my mind, you on my mind
You stay awake as I fall asleep

LIEBLINGS- KIRCHENLIED MEINER UROMA:

Solang mein Jesus lebt
Und seine Kraft ich hebt
Soll Furcht und Sorge von mir fliehn
Das ist mein Paradies
