Say Hello 03:22
get up in the morning awoken by the sunshine in my eyes out on the pavement all the early souls are passing by i am the one on the road in a jovial mode i can't hide my affection (i'm) going out of my way (to) make the most of my day i'm loving our connection hey good looking hey good morning i just thought i'd say hello hey it's a brand new day to dive into i hope you get my memo the clouds are like icing painted on cerulean delight it's taking forever until i finally arrive somewhere along the way i nick a bouquet hope you like 'em red and yellow (i'm) going out of my way (to) make the most of your day but first of all let's say hello hey good looking hey good morning i just thought i'd say hello hey it's a brand new day to dive into i hope you get my memo hey good looking hey what a morning sleep under the rainbow hey wanna come and play by the way i hope you got my memo so familiar we are it's close to bizarre as much as it is nice and pleasing having lunch in the field sleeping under the tree when i listen i can hear you breathing we're going out of our way to make the most of our day from morning to the latest evening it's hello and never goodbye hey good looking hey good morning i just thought i'd say hello hey it's a brand new day to dive into i hope you get my memo hey good looking hey what a morning woke up under a rainbow hey wanna come and play by the way is it okay if i kiss you?

Wicked City 03:30
a room for two we don't care about the view a secret place tell me you are waiting up to see my face tell me we are two against the world i hold you until morning whatever feels alright doesn't matter where we're going because only you and i can leave this wicked city behind the truth is i love how you still shine for a long time we've waited on the runway but i believe we can still fly two against the world i hold you until morning whatever feels alright doesn't matter where we're going because only you and i can break up the restrictions the city and it's lights and places we ain't fitting we'll leave it all behing the world is a rush and we're taking it fast and the night is a blur as it turns into dust two against the world i hold you until morning whatever feels alright doesn't matter where we're going because only you and i can leave this wicked city and everything behind the sparkling boundary lines

Summer 03:21
a chilly breeze in the afternoon the days are ending still too soon in the summer i lost my heart and i found a home we're far apart but never alone in the summer dear louise - almond seeds dear louise - apple trees dear louise - st.austell just as well being at home to every degree in a white white house overlooking the sea in the summer playing the songs on the radio we're guessing 'em fast from the patio here in the summer dear louise - almond seeds dear louise - apple trees dear louise - st.austell just as well merry merry maybe we could stay a little more but baby tele said there's gonna be some weather at the door sunny sunny sunny can we still be having fun I guess it doesn't always have to be sun dear louise - almond seeds dear louise - apple trees dear louise - st.austell just as well

Marina 04:37
left and right corners and eaves trees without leaves and rain you see i'm not a townie my heart is lost at sea i guess i'm a seashell not much more i can tell i thrive in the salty breeze sea as far as the eye could reach i'm a shell i don't need no get wells i gaze at the island once in a while and i'll be sort of fine in the hall children playing ball couldn't hear the gulls even if they were there sometimes i like to walk by the harbour pretending i'm back there spending the weekend at home cause i'm a shell no other way in hell nose in the breeze don't we agree this is the best thing i'm a shell and not street gravel Clement's and Michael's to sum up my vitals i will be back home it's there with the wide cliffs and the hedgerows seagulls and tide spray and light a couple of miles you see the world ending i'm coming home in a little while yes i'm a shell no other way in hell nose in the breeze don't we agree this is the best thing we'll ever see i'm a shell i don't need no get wells i gaze at the island once in a while and i'll be sort of fine i'm a shell and not street gravel Clement's and Michael's two of my vitals i will be back home

little red riding hood is late for the interview speeding down the forest track on her bicycle she never wears a helmet cause it messes up her hair life got to her but she's still pretty though the amphetamin doesn't show she's got stars she's got stripes she's going all the way along the track there is a house and she decides time for a pause goes inside to find an old lady at the fireplace she sits fingers moving as she knits looking somwhat shady doesn't speak at first eyes bleak scrubby hair nothing more finally she says loud and clear come closer to your nan listen i know you ain't my grandma but let's see what we can do you know i wasn't born yesterday what you're proposing is obviously insane i know good enough to keep away little red riding hood picks up her phone writes a message to the forester changes her status to engaged, makes a fist and engages the old hag in quite a twister by the way she says your face is all over facebook there you go - 2.0 these days you don't know who might know you i know you ain't my grandma but let's see what we can do you know i wasn't born yesterday also your tummy looks very strange to me we should really do an x-ray

hey look at me I'm doing something new trying to be beautiful hey look at me i'm heading up the queue going somewhere suitable hey they seem to think in terms of me and you good old inequalities hey never did occur i might go through there goes your causality lock your doors go ahead and break the key all hell is loose once she's set free So some on Beth takes a picture oh no Beth takes a picture So what did she do to you? What did she do to you? hey waive it blame it all on just a stroke haven't you been good enough? hey awakening the piggie in the poke life has never felt so rough hide away go on and break the key all hell is loose she's on a spree So some on Beth takes a picture oh no Beth takes a picture So what did she do to you? What did she do to you? once a while someone pays the price somebody rolls the dice and gets a bullet stare everyday someone breaks away someone wakes today it is her i think that is her i think

Sing to me 03:53
Hessian game but we're still there everybody hates us i don't care not if you sing to me dressed in red, red and white white and looking prettier than the bride and then you sing to me come together with a smile doesn't have to be real good to know that you're all here been a while parlour full of nitty gritty voices from afar is only noise not if you sing to me rasing all their hands to shake it under circumstances i might care not if you sing to me everyone around us is so caught up in themselves not a single ear can stand a question not a single moment i could stand if we were sober we would run morning comes we sneak away notice it has not been just a stay not if you sing to me driving home along the line leaving them behind will take some time not if you sing to me come together with a smile nice to know you've grown up grown away just once again that's alright right as the night has so many hours hours to waste maybe it wouldn't even be noticed if we bailed

Ender 06:10
drink up, lights out go home blackout noone waiting aggravating they say remember the good things in life but what are the good things in life? one eye open no more hopin' guess it sank in deep while you were asleep they say remember the good things in life but what are the good things in life? what are the good things? smashing into your life coming out of the cold putting all the elation on hold cutting under the skin spreading into the room draggin out all the beauty and bloom they say remember the good things in life but what are the good things in life? what are the good things? kicking into the chest killing all of your buzz need to cheer up but seriously what does? taking over your thoughts alienating your friends cancelling all your weekend plans we used to think of the good things in life but what are the good things in life? what are the good things? we are the memories we live and we live on forever (and ever) we are the reason you will overcome whatsoever (and ever)

about

Michael Ellis Oldenburg, Germany

I was born in 1983 and began my musical career at the age of six when I first took violin lessons. On my ninth birthday I got my first electric guitar and I have been playing rock and roll ever since. Over the last years I have recorded several albums and ep‘s (17 altogether I think) containing lots of musical styles from acoustic folk music via progressive rock and songwriter to pop and rock. ... more
