...Or it simply has to do with the Der Bulle und Das Mädchen story !

Tough transcription indeed, I'm having a hard time on the same parts years after :)
I disagree for PUNKS, but I'm ok for YOU WON'T EVEN CALL.
I hear "And heading for the TWILIGHT" in the first verse.
The more I try to get the lines the more I come up with nonsense phrases :

Since you're LOCK with her, it feels like a sin
'cause the taste is much too sweet, it's much too sweet
AND THE MASS IN THE CHAOS OF THE CITY GROOVES

Even Marian doesn't know what the song is about! It's a great song regardless, either in demo or completed form. One of the best opening songs too.

- That's not the right answer.
The right answer is Hungary
- Is what ?
- Hungary !
- Hungry ?
- Like I'm Hungary
- That's a country ?


This is an SOS for 7ven...

'mmmhkay out there, I had a call with Marian this noon and he confessed the lyrics are simply not documented anywhere, so he wrote them down using his genius memory plus the DS-Version of GF. Here's his reply:

...really hard to grasp the words I have to admit:

The streets are opened wide for a brandnew adventure
The asphalt flashes in the light
And the blackleathered knights are crawling out of their basements
And handing the tickets for the night
Won't you stay for a while 'coz there's no chance to hide
Lay your money right down for the bill
? alive, there's no time for regrets (you're alive)
?, now come in for the kill (you're alive), for the kill...
So this place is so crowded... etc

Can't decode the exact words I'm singing where I placed the questionmark. But I still remember their semantic content. It deals with the idea that "one is destined to exist ="thrown into existence" as Albert Camus wrote. In context of the song it means that although it is not one's decision to be born, at least one can draw some excitement out of the fact of life, which kind of represents one's ticket to the adventures of the night= the game of life and death brought on by its seductive yet ominous messengers, the "blackleathered knights". Well, that's it roughly...
From Alphaville with love
Marian Gold

Hey, first of all, many thanks Toby for asking directly to Marian.[thumbup]
I now understand why the Dreamscapes booklet only provided the official lyrics, not the draft ones. Of course a bit disappointed not to get a full review of the verses but, on the other hand, Marian's explanation sheds a light on this song and this defo deserves a post on the AVNow site.

Thank you so much!! So my question is, when Marian was singing this demo for the first time, he didn't know what he was singing or did he forget what the lyrics were now when he was asked at question? While listening to the demo, he's obviously saying something, but what? [laugh] So my interpretation is that he doesn't remember the lyrics. And I definitely agree! I feel his should be posted on the AVNow website. I'm sure many others have the same question.

Hi Nicole, as a native what do you hear in the second verse, just curious [smile]
