Love me love me love me again When the stars are asleep and the cars are so cheap Late at night I’ve stepped on your dress I just stopped you moved on, but your skin turned me on Somebody’s watching over something that’s watching you Everybody’s touching everybody’s touching everything My mind is taking you through Shake me shake me shake me again I’m awake in your dreams but I fake my beliefs Late at night I’ve swallowed your kiss When we meet it’s so sweet, shoot your darts at my heart

Sun Strip 04:43
It’s a grey world It’s a grey world If you don’t color it right If you don’t color it bright Sun stripping in the morning light Sun stripping away No bad word can be used or said against the morning light Sun stripping away Sun stripping away It’s a fake world It’s a fake world If you don’t fill it up right If you don’t fill it up tight

If you want a real good start Put an arrow 'cross my heart And take a sample of blood We don’t need no logic here One and one is always three If you hit the spot Down on the ground change into something new You’ve got to get a... ...Round and around missing each part of you You’ve got to get us... Down on the ground waiting for something new Round and around changing each part of you Each part of you Under water, out in space Sinking ships go down in grace But they always go down So if you have a real good heart Take me on a ride that starts On a merry-go-round

Strawberry soul Easily forgotten Taking control If you must you must Left over love Swept in a corner Under a Persian rug with yesterday’s dust Sometimes I lie... but that is just showbiz We’re so much alike We just wanna go for it Strawberry soul Smiling a sun smile Smiling a sun smile just for the sake of it Strawberry soul Nobody picks you Nobody picks you up Wherever you go Somebody tricks you Strawberry soul Nobody picks you Nobody picks you up Wherever you go They say: "Pleased to meet you Pleased to leave you" I’ll be a fish in your aquarium And all that you wish for is that we carry on Take me away Someplace exotic Far from the toxic waste and the marathon Strawberry soul...

Time Machine 05:29
I was so late in 1848 Still looking for you in ‘62 We had to meet in 703 Still not a sign in 2009 So much water under the bridge So much beer out of the fridge Flowing away The past is killing you, you said And in the future we’ll be dead How about now? I was on time in 1939 But you went for a ride till '45 Lost my control in 1984 Got carried away in 2003 So much water under the bridge So much beer out of the fridge Flowing away The past is killing you, you said And in the future we’ll be dead How about now? Time won’t mind what’s on your mind

If you shut your mouth and close your eyes It is no surprise that We’ll be mute and we’ll be blind There’s no way to hide the darkest night inside your mind that falls everybody’s left behind the outer wall clap your hands and move your feet ‘cross the streets of sorrow We will listen we will read ‘bout your deeds tomorrow The darkest night inside your mind that falls Everybody’s left behind the Chinese wall Take me to a crumbling rainbow and make me whole Push me out of several windows Just to break my bones Clap your hands and shake your heart We’ll be apart forever Change your mind and save your skin Never to begin again Take me to a crumbling rainbow and make me whole Push me out of several windows Just to break my bones Drown me in a delicate ocean of tears for a thousand years Waves are breaking (again) you’re mistaken (again) Time to take me home The darkest night inside your mind Everybody’s left behind
7.
Your touch is soft and strong Your love is right and wrong I’m going straight to hell I just can’t tell anymore Nobody will listen Nobody will miss you Nobody will dare to kiss you just for fun Cause you’re one... One in a million Your eyes are black and green Your love is a war machine I’m going back to sleep I just can’t keep my eyes open Nobody will listen Nobody will miss you Nobody will dare to kiss you just for fun Cause you’re one... One in a million Save the best for last Save the best for last Save the best for last Make love to the future Save the best for last Nobody will listen Nobody will miss you Nobody will dare to kiss you just for fun Cause you’re one... One in a million One in a million

Sugar Hill 03:16
Oh, you think you'll make it on your own But every time you cry your heart out You just play a part 'bout what might have been Oh, don't give me bad news on the phone Cause every time I hear that shit ring I listen to your voice sing And I'm turning green She questions everything you see Every time I climb a sugar hill Sitting on the window sill I'm watching a bee Don't give me bad news on the phone My heart is rolling like a stone I can feel the hot steam Coming out 'f your nostrils And chilling my bones Cry, my oh my oh my oh my Look at all the dirty pictures Acid queens and hipsters passing by Don't give me bad news on the phone My heart is rolling like a stone I can feel the hot steam Coming out 'f your nostrils And chilling my bones

Bubbles 04:44
Where were you when everybody was calling you? Let's meet on the street with your name Close your eyes and all the lights in the world go out in an instant Take a spell and turn all the cars into pretty girls On the back seat waiting Shake your head, get out of your bed and say: “na na na na na na “ The bubbles are bursting The bubbles are bursting inside Each one of Each one of Each one of Each one of us knew The bubbles are floating The bubbles are floating away Each one of Each one of Each one of Each one of us blew A brave new world has opened its windows and doors A light in the distance calling Take your time, get out of your mind and say: "na na na na na na" The bubbles... You'll get inside me Taking me over Taking me over I'll get inside you Taking you over Taking you over Take your time get out of your mind and say... Shake your head, get out of your bed and say... The bubbles are...

The Last Man 05:53
When the waters will rise to your ankles And the rain doesn't seem to get bored Just go dancing by the ford When the firemen pick up their axes And the fishermen call for their rods Just go on dancing by the pond Wave your arms at all the army vessels making off See the doctors and the helicopters taking off Do you mind that they have left you behind All I really wanna know is where we're coming from Are we monkeys, are we aliens or a TV show Would you mind if they would leave you behind And the waters will rise to your eyelids And the rain doesn't seem to get tired Just go out dancing in the night All the virgins are covered in goose skin And the geese are prepared to be fried Just go out dancing in the sky Wave your arms...
11.
That's Right 05:42
Check it out... the moon... the stars... the alien angels Alienating everybody Please please... don't say a word I think I might have heard a sound There might be a rock'n roll band playing on the sands of a circus And we feel like Hollywood stars on a honey moon Hollywood stars on a honey moon That's right Check it out... the moon... the stars... Silver light touches the ocean All the space ships look like jellyfish And the jellyfish look like space ships And anyway... anyway They will inherit the earth Here come the good times Here come the good times There ain't no space like here and no time like now There ain't no space like here and no time like now Hollywood stars on a honey moon (we feel like) Hollywood stars on a honey moon Here I stand all alone in the dark With my million dollar note in my hand Tell the cab driver: "You can keep the change... But you'll have to take me far far far away" There ain't no space like here and no time like now...
12.
Sometimes you don't know the where's and why's and woes Sometimes you just blow the candle out Sixty pairs of boots marching up your spine And in the end you'll find out you just don't mind Reach out for the moon, you can't get there too soon The sunny side's a place outside your room Waving at yourself and everybody else Wave after wave after wave after wave after wave... Change change Love the lovely girls, the footprints of the world The ocean waves are cool, they're splashing on your boots Wave after wave after wave after wave after wave... Waving your goodbyes and off you fly... Change change See the morning rain going down the drain So please give me a hand... it takes three to catch a train.

about

bonus track: Să nu spui nimănui

More than 4 years after their previous record, Kumm continue to explore and test the boundaries of established music genres. The band avoids being pigeonholed into a particular style; you could think of "A Mysterious Place Called Somewhere" as somewhat more progressive in terms of approach, hinting towards the band's early days (together with Eugen doing lead vocals once again). Then again, the record is teeming with influences ranging from britpop to blues, alternative rock and post punk, while the distorted guitar feels quite grungy at certain times.

Take these cited influences with a grain of salt, however; the band's been making music for more than 16 years now, and their experience and increasingly developed identity shine through at all times, making for a fresh and entertaining listen.
