Ursprünglich ein türkisches Volksmusik-Stück, Mektup (Brief) kommt vom arabischen Maktub - geschrieben. Maktub bedeutet auch, dass das Schicksal schon vorbestimmt ist. Unser neuer Text beschreibt die Figuren aus verschiedenen Sciencefiction- und Verschwörungstheorie-Filmen: Diese sind göttergleiche Vertreter einer übergeordneten Macht, die unsere als objektiv wahrgenommene Welt programmieren. In Wirklichkeit gibt es - gemäss den aufgeschlossensten Physikern unserer Zeit - in einer einzigen Theorie für alle Phänomene der Welt nur verschieden schwingende Strings, die dann scheinbar als Teilchen erscheinen: Photonen, Gravitonen, Quarks. Wie also die Veden schon seit Jahrtausenden sagen: kein Raum, keine Zeit, kein Gott, kein Selbst - alles bloss Täuschung. Das einzig Wirkliche ist Schwingung, also Musik.
follow the matrix track meet the men in black // space is but an illusion made up by our mind / matter nuclear fusion emptiness combined // string vibration and music that's the only truth / magnetism and mouse clicks just a kind of blues // freely floating planets and moons programmed by cosmic love / well dressed women playing bassoon they are the general staff // string vibration and music that's the only truth / gravitation and joysticks just a kind of blues

Ursprünglich ein Volkslied aus Kroatien, dunje žute ist eine gelbe (reife) Quitte. Unser neuer Text beschreibt eine unvergessliche, unwiederbringliche romantische Begegnung auf einer Reise mit der Eisenbahn, den vollen Herzschmerz.
once upon a voyage I met her in that first class carriage / her speech so full of noblesse I missed to check her address / she got off in Lyon she blew a kiss and said I see you / so that - I must now write - was love at first sight // many years have passed by remembering jasmine and the black eyes / each time I take that railway I hope for a replay / I recall her radiance from just an atom of her fragrance / oh Lord it‘s like a skydive our love must wait for next life // lazy I let you go you no name bird jasmine wondergirl / crazy I miss you so will never ever find my pearl
Ursprünglich ein traditionelles Roma-Stück, das im ganzen Balkan in verschiedenen Versionen zu hören ist. Unser neuer Text ist entstanden aus Kinderreimen, die überall auf der Welt Ähnliches beschreiben: eine Katastrophe (bei uns ein Vulkanausbruch) kommt, ein Kind versteckt sich, um sich zu retten, und die Marienkäfer oder Maikäfer fliegen aus.
