Track Name: Mad Mans Resurrection
MAD MAN’S RESURRECTION - Worst Case In Stereo Chapter I

"Another Rock & Roll-outlaw, using another Rock & Roll-pseudonym like, let's say, N.T.HERO or something stupid like that, has chosen a life apart from what YOU would maybe call Establishment and seems only to lose his inner anger against everything, anytime he is hitting the stage once more..."

It’s not a job, more a lifestyle, something you'll never know
This takes me somewhere you will never ever go to
It's moving me on, it makes me feel alive
That's just the way, another day, another show
Hey, This won’t work for everybody, it might be even worse for me
But there's no choice about my passion, to turn the night into day

BACK IN LIFE, BACK IN TOWN, GOT MY FEET BACK ON THE GROUND
NOT DEAD AND NOT SOBER, HANG OUT AND HANG OVER AGAIN
BACK IN BUSINESS, BACK IN TIME, ALWAYS FIND ME BORDERLINE
SO THE PRESSURE GETS LOWER, HANG OUT AND HANG OVER AGAIN
A MAD MAN’S RESURRECTION

I’m always walking on thin ice, till it feels I break through
I seem to be a psycho or the kindest guy you ever knew
Well, this ain’t a perfect world and baby so ain’t I
And just like all of you I’m getting used to fake and lie
That's what they call self-destruction, that's what they call rise and fall
But that's what I call satisfaction, that's what I call Rock & Roll

BACK IN LIFE…
Track Name: Break Out
BREAK OUT - Worst Case In Stereo Chapter II

"...feeling crushed by system and society, the lack of lifes' answers doesn't retain N.T.HERO from assembling burning question into his lyrics and notes, shouting out loud what cannot be kept concealed..."

Don't let them tell you what to wear, don't let them tell you what to fear
Don't let them tell you why you're here, coz' they don't know
The dreams they sell never come true, don't be their slave, don't be their fool
Don't let them tell you what to do or where to go – hell no!

They do not care 'bout you at all, you're just a number, you're just small
They won't even recognize your call if you don't stand up
If your protest ends with your complaints, nothing will change, it will stay the same
You'll slowly go insane but they will never stop, so

BREAK OUT, BREAK OUT FROM YOURSELF
YOU'VE GOT TO LIVE LOUD, RAISE YOUR FIST AND YELL
NEVER LET IT BE, KEEP YOUR HEAD UP TO BE FREE

If there's the needed open mind, if you ain't deaf and dumb and blind
There are still answers you can find if you don't refuse
So use your brain n’ use your voice, do not be quiet, keep that noise
Be sure it’s not the wrong path you are going to choose and

BREAK OUT…
Track Name: Canada
CANADA - Worst Case In Stereo Chapter III

"...unfortunately our leading actor realizes too late that he should've been using much more power to icrease the love surrounding him instead against all those demos and the hate inside himself... and then she was gone..."

You say it's completely pointless wondering what went wrong
I'd like to be so tough and strong
Our story ended long ago and has turned to dust
But somehow I can't get out of that past

There is no question 'bout the one who is to blame
Who has been treating bad and cheating in this game
I went away but I can't let go
While I'm lost in my rain you head for sunny days
You keep on living your freedom and you walk your ways
And I'm proud of the girl that I used to know

SHE'S MOVING TO CANADA, I KNOW SHE WILL MAKE IT FAR
I WISH THAT ALL HER HOPES AND DREAMS ARE COMING TRUE
SHE'S MOVING TO CANADA, MOVING TO CANADA
I HOPE SHE FINDS WHAT SHE IS LOOKING FOR
AND MAY HER SKY BE ALWAYS BRIGHT AND BLUE

I still pay for every single time I made you cry
I still pay for every single lie
I killed your will to fight for the love that I threw away
Now there's no way back to yesterday

It's not just looking back in anger, as I hope
Remember crazy scenes, better than our favourite soap
I miss your laughing and your smile
And somewhen in another time, another place
I'd love to see again that smile on your pretty face
And feel like back then, for a while

SHE’S MOVING TO CANADA…

I said: 'I don't want us to be just one short novel more'

SHE’S MOVING TO CANADA…

...And I miss you, and I miss you,....there's no life left without you
Track Name: Crack The Whip
CRACK THE WHIP - Worst Case In Stereo Chapter IV

"...some scars go deeper than others and due to the unspeakable pain, N.T.HERO soon finds himself far off the shores of sanity, slowly drowning into an abyss of despair..."

This ain't the usual story, this ain't the usual way
None of us expected things would go so wrong
There's always someone left behind within the struggling of his mind
Not to go insane, now all alone

I NEED YOU TO HURT ME, I NEED YOU TO CRACK THE WHIP, SO I FEEL YOU AGAIN
I NEED YOU TO HURT ME, I NEED YOU TO CUT ME DEEP, SO I FEEL NO MORE PAIN

Still can't fight my desire, I’d run right into fire
Either to protect you or to forget you
The only reason I still live is because I still believe
There's a reason why you give me hell

I NEED YOU TO HURT ME…
Track Name: Rollercoaster
ROLLERCOASTER - Worst Case In Stereo Chapter V

"...he eventually finds out things went much worse, when others - on purpose or not - unnecessarily involved themselves into the story...well, if GET OFF MY GIRL wasn't clear enough, further action seems to be required...that's Rock & Roll, right?"

There's a war in the jungle and you're all alone, here comes another tricky stepping stone, watch out
Hey, there's no up without a down and what goes around will come around, watch out

AND LET IT ROCK & ROLL YA, LIFE'S A ROLLERCOASTER, ENJOY THE RIDE, LIVE WITH PRIDE
FIGHT THE FIGHTS YOU HAVE TO FIGHT, IN THE END IT WILL BE RIGHT
WHEN ROCK & ROLL'S THE SOUNDTRACK, THEN ROCK & ROLL'S THE GUIDE, RIGHT?

Shit is happening everywhere and no one ever said it's fair, watch out
But never say you can't take it longer, coz what doesn't kill you is making you stronger, watch out

LET IT ROCK & ROLL YA…

And
Fasten your seatbelts, hold on tight - and don't let go
Fasten your seatbelts, hold on tight - here comes the show
Fasten your seatbelts, hold on tight - and don't let go
Fasten your seatbelts, hold on tight - fasten your seatbelts, hold on tight
Track Name: Letters From The Past
LETTERS FROM THE PAST - Worst Case In Stereo Chapter VI

"...but even if it's hard to accept the fact that past won't come back at all, there's no reason for someone like N.T.HERO to deny the good times - no matter how long ago they might be..."

I recover feelings when I read between those lines
They have been written so long, so long ago
In such a different period and in such a different time
I'll never ever be there once more, but one thing's for sure:
I'll keep all those mem'ries 'till I die

FEELS LIKE
TRAVELLING IN A TIME MACHINE WITH YOUR LETTERS FROM THE PAST
STORIES BURIED DEEP INSIDE MY HEART
WHAT WE SAID AND WHAT WE FELT, IT'S COMING BACK SO FAST
GOING BACKWARDS WITH A TIME MACHINE, I REMEMBER EVERYTHING AGAIN
RIGHT FROM THE START - RIGHT FROM THE START

Going through the biggest changes
Doesn't turn us into somebody else
But what made us being as we are n’ as we were
It doesn't change the present days
If we keep on worrying ‘bout different choices in the past
But it's no crime to be dreaming away
Back to those days before life split up our ways

FEELS LIKE…
Track Name: Golden Heart
GOLDEN HEART - Worst Case In Stereo Chapter VII

"...some attemps of bringing to life again what's been thought to be dead already, may have failed...but sometimes you just need a little more patience to see a sense in what fate seems to have in mind..."

You held me when there was no one else to hold on
You were there when I needed someone like you most
And I'm glad that we met and I'm sorry the time was wrong
But there's something unbreakable that will always last

LOVERS THEY COME, BABY, LOVERS THEY GO
BUT WHAT WE HAVE IS WORTH MORE THAN TEARS THAT MIGHT FLOW
I KNEW HOW LUCKY I'VE BEEN FROM THE START
WHEN I FOUND YOUR GOLDEN HEART

You can count on me like I can count on you
You made me believe and survive
And I won't forget all that we had
And I won't forget you saved my life - you know:

LOVERS THEY COME…
Track Name: Worst Case
WORST CASE - Worst Case In Stereo Chapter VIII

"...whatever happens, it is important to stay positive, as hard as it might be. In the end, you'll never know where the darkest roads could lead you to, so keep your eyes and mind open for the light..."

So you're pretty stuck in the dirt again
And it feels like you have been here before
It doesn't matter if it's fate or just your fault
You better try to find the exit door once more
Gettin' outta here – get your ass outta here
So you're fucked up and you're underfucked? Fuck it, baby!
Nevermind the shadows in your life
Just hold on, you gotta be strong to survive – to survive

I TELL YA EVEN THE WORST CASE’S MAKING SENSE, IF YOU KEEP ON BELIEVING
AND EVERY NEW BEGINNING IS A CHANCE, IF YOU KEEP ON BELIEVING
SO HOLD ON...HOLD ON...

Flying high and flying low, anyway - be sure where to go
Don't give it up, give it one more hot shot, what you don't ask for you don’t know
Broken romance and so-called friends, this motherfuckin' story never ends
Good and bad come and go and you know, don’t deny – don’t deny

I TELL YA EVEN THE WORST CASE’S MAKING SENSE, IF YOU KEEP ON BELIEVING
AND EVERY NEW BEGINNING IS A CHANCE, IF YOU KEEP ON BELIEVING
SO HOLD ON...HOLD ON...

I TELL YA...
EVERY SCAR ON YOUR HEART IS MAKING SENSE, IF YOU KEEP ON BELIEVING
AND EVERY NEW BEGINNING IS A CHANCE, IF YOU KEEP ON BELIEVING
SO HOLD ON...HOLD ON...YEAH!
Track Name: To Feel Alive
TO FEEL ALIVE - Worst Case In Stereo Chapter IX

"...finally N.T.HERO is able to taste the sun again, after someone special found a way to lead him out of the labyrinth of frustration, depression and pain and stopped the nightmare he thought he'd never awake from again..."

Well, it seems you came from nowhere, but you must be heaven sent
It's amazing how it touches my heart when you just hold my hand
What we went through's showing clearly where we go
This is the kind of love I thought I'd never know

This is really something priceless, so it's worth to give it all
With you every morning's rising is the proof we'll never fall
Since you found me there's no question how to choose
Since you found me I know we won't ever lose

ANGELS NEED NO WINGS TO FLY, TO LIFT YOU UP INTO THEIR SKY
ANGELS CAN BECOME SO REAL - WHEN THEY MAKE YOU LEARN AGAIN TO FEEL
TO FEEL ALIVE - TO FEEL ALIVE

You leave me breathless with your energy that you put into me
There’s a future that was hidden, but now you could make me see
I can’t imagine how I could handle life before
I can’t imagine being without you anymore

ANGELS NEED NO WINGS TO FLY…
Track Name: Bondage Blues
BONDAGE BLUES - Worst Case In Stereo Chapter X

"...well, so much for this episode! Maybe next time we'll find N.T.HERO caught in kinda different sticky situations, from which he rather wouldn't even wanna be released too soon ;-))"

Well, I woke up this morning on the wrong side of the bed
I wasn’t on the left and I wasn’t on the right side
And I thought it’s a bad dream that I have
Coz’ I wasn’t laying on my sheets now, I was strapped there on the wall
Hanging there upside down, I couldn’t stand and I couldn’t fall and I

GOT THE BONDAGE BLUES, THE BONDAGE BLUES
NO SHIRT AND NO SHOES, I’M JUST HANGING AROUND,
HANGING AROUND SINGING THE BONDAGE BLUES

I heard the door opening, but I couldn’t see
My tie ‘round my eyes and my belt ‘round my knees
I was blind and I couldn’t move, the handcuffs so strong
And when she started working I kept on singing my song, I sang the

THE BONDAGE BLUES…
Track Name: Austria Roxx
AUSTRIA ROXX - Worst Case In Stereo Chapter XI

"...N.T.HERO of course should be very thankful to music itself - who knows what would've happened to him without - and also to all the people listening - hope you enjoyed the Worst Case In Stereo!!"

There is something wrong with my radio because it sounds like shit
There’s rarely a station in this nation that gives me what I need
And I'm not the only one who wants some music back on air,
That keeps me high above any low
And let me add a fact, if you maybe didn't know:
The 80's aren't over, baby, before I say so!

AND IF THE DJ SUCKS, TELL HIM AUSTRIA ROXX
AND IF THE DJ SUCKS, TELL HIM AUSTRIA ROXX
A REVOLUTION’S GOING ON, EVERYBODY SING THIS SONG
WE WANNA PARTY EVERY DAY AND ALL NIGHT LONG
AND IF THE DJ SUCKS, TELL HIM AUSTRIA ROXX

…Commercial Break ;o)

AND IF THE DJ SUCKS…
