Tina lives in Berlin
Her voice so seldom
On my machine
Is here tonight
And I'm on the market
And when I'm on a market
Words move faster
Wire and clouds move
Thin between us
Like a skin
Like a salty skin
For a seed
A fat circles
A smiling smiling
Her voice so intentionally
And a cloud between us
And these are my intentions
Pushing [Repeat x7]
Ah [Repeat x10]
? the blonde
Is carrying something
Is carrying me
And someone I used to be
Great plastic someone
Blue plastic girl 
Your dream is
Pushing [Repeat x5]
Pushed away your body is
Pushing [Repeat x3]
Pushed away your
Come me for the unbelieve
Carry on song 
Lipstick fodder
The boyfriend blond
Between the holes of sheets
Is professionally poised
Faces watching her
She's watching the faces
Watching her
Pushin [Repeat x3]
Pushing [Repeat x3]
Love [Repeat x5]
Pushing [Repeat x3]
Pushing [Repeat x3]
Love [Repeat x9]
Ha [Repeat x10]
