Track Name: Robin II
ROBIN II

well, it’s been a few days now, so how have you been
not that I should know what state you’re in

I should care less

well, I just bawled my eyes out and feel really relieved
not that I threw up enough to fully retrieve

I’m still a mess

but what really helps a lot is the knowledge
that it’s nothing but the time it takes
you gave me meals for thought
and Robin a laughing break
how quickly will he re-enter the lists?
don’t correct me if I’m wrong
I’m sure that grudge exists (especially his…)
and that mine will make a brilliant song

well, lately I have not been that close with time
the weekends seem the worst ever since they’re all mine

it’s hard to get through

well, congratulations - you entered the Torture Top 3
and by the way already not happy anniversary

here’s to you and your cool
here’s to me and my catch-22

now what really helps a lot is the knowledge
that it’s nothing but the time it takes
you gave me meals for thought
and Robin a laughing break
how quickly will he re-enter the lists?
don’t correct me if I’m wrong
I’m sure that grudge exists (especially his…)
and that mine will make a brilliant song

but what really helps a lot is the knowledge
that it’s nothing but the time it takes
it is funny not at all half as funny as
to call me Robin by mistake
he will re-enter the lists
don't correct me if I'm wrong
I'm sure that grudge exists (especially his…)
and that mine will make a brilliant song
Track Name: Caretaker (demo)
CARETAKER

you’re right
these stairs make you feel like you’re in New York
on a night like tonight even more
I’m on my way to your place
now you’re away for a week
I got your keys with a weak white lie
easy
your room is cold
I read your note and close the window you left open
your city sure looks pretty from up here

these plants are the start of my little plan
as well as the candles, the Leo poster and Ernie's yellow friend
I pile and hang your clothes by color
(mostly blue)
it's nice to smell you in a few of your t-shirts…
I fall asleep on your pillow
one last look through the window
your city sure looks pretty from up here

you’re right
these stairs make you feel like you’re in New York
on a night like tonight even more
Track Name: Herbst [extended version]
HERBST

so spring never came
no need to digress
it is what it is
this too shall pass

now summer has gone
you need a new plan
before you know it
it’s winter again –

all over again

you'll be alright
I know for a fact
just look at the twins
remember the pact

and then there's this blonde
still a bit tanned
maybe it’s time now
you’d let go of his hand

go on…
Track Name: Panama [alternate version]
PANAMA

Look, I took the rope off.
So you might find your way.
Now you go grease those wooden wheels.
Don’t stay another day.

Panama is waiting.
I see it’s not a whim.
If you want to leave this simple house
Just clap your hidden wings or swim.

The river here will lead you.
Otherwise just trace the signs.
Let bananas there feed you
and you’ll be doing fine.

Good luck, little Tiger Duck.
Make sure you take good care

Sincerely always yours,

The Little Tiger and The Little Bear
