Life 05:36
LIFE Life is a circus of strange animals, showcasing their skills to who dares a look A playground, a sandbox , with no other rules, than the one and unique law of the Jungle Welcome to a world of mystery, where everyone is convinced of its own reality Welcome to a world of misery, ruled by the hierarchy There is light above your head And there is darkness in your bed Wherever there is darkness there is light There are lies on the floor There’s magic behind the door Surprises arise on every street corner Don’t take my words for the truth, don’t take the truth for the one, The one and unique truth Oh you’ll cry, yes you’ll cry Oh you’ll laugh, yes you’ll laugh, You will face many doubts and many fears Oh you will feel, yes you will feel And you will love, yes you will love And you will fall into the wonders of life Sometime you do take it a little bit too seriously Yes sometimes life feels a bit heavy Dissatisfaction Making the wrong decisions Always expectations Lost in the indecision But somewhere below the atmosphere There is some sweetness my dear Will you let it take you by surprise? Are you ready to live ? Are you reaaaady to live? Are you ready to die ? Are you reaaaady to die? Well, you don’t really have the choice No, you don’t really have the choice, Cause you are here with us, yes, and we are here with you So let’s make the most it, dance a little bit It’s a sweet world It’s a cruel world It’s a mad world It’s a wonderful world Life is a circus of strange animals, showcasing their skills to who dares a look A playground, a sandbox , with no other rules, than the one and unique law of the JUNGLE

The end of the world All the clouds have disappeared The sky has turned red Even the wind stopped blowing on our faces Time is standing still Our shadows have detached From our bodies And in the mist we understand That the end has come Let’s get together one last time Keep on dancing til the days turns dark Let’s hold hands stronger For the losses and the laughters Let’s smile to another And all of a sudden Ain’t no misery In the moment of pure clarity Lies eternity

about

River Rats Berlin, Germany

From the depths of the Spree and its canals come the River Rats! They drag two guitars, double-bass and violin through the gloomy tunnels of Berlin to their moon-lit sessions.

Influenced by the diminished lines of Django.R, the heart of the variété française and the complexity of World Music, the Rats wander between the ragged niches of Kreuzberg’s street jams and the glamorous grand theater.
