Track Name: One way to rumspringa
Driving in reverse on a one way road,
navigating by the rear view mirror.
And if I hit a kid or a mistress--
well, who's to say that they did not deserve it?

Don't I have a place to go?
And don't I have a way to get there
There's only one way to rumspringa.

Thirty quick quips till you keep your mouth shut
and let the silence take the middle seat between us.
Turn the radio off. I don't like anything
and we'll make great time without it.

Don't I have a place to go?
And don't I have a way to get there
There's only one way to rumspringa.
Track Name: Nostalgische Mode
In a place I don't belong,
listening to native people speak their native tongues.
And it doesn't feel the same,
though the words are just the same.
I grow silent and ashamed
for what and how I say.

And I don't recognize
all the simple manners they expect me to abide.
But just give them time
and I will make them mine.

In a place I once called home,
everything that was familiar is removed and remote.
And it doesn't feel the same,
though nothing has been changed.
I grow silent and amazed
for the way that I became.

And I don't recognize
all the simple manners they expect me to abide,
though they once were mine,
and could be again in time.

I don't recognize
all the simple manners they expect me to abide,
though they once were mine,
and will be again in time.
