This was one of the first songs I wrote in Vienna. The initial idea came when I realized that Vienna has five subway lines, logically numbered 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6.

I had to think about the forgotten U5 line and it gave me a feeling of adventure and mystery – a missing, unknown subway line. The words Take me to the end of U-fünf came to my mind with the melody of the current chorus…

Lyrics

You don't know me, I don't know you either, now. You're near. You take the meat, I'll take fish, though I'm not sure if it's real. The grass is green. Displayed on LCD flat screen. Take me to the end of this flight, land with me on sunny fields, take me over the wide blue sea, so deep. My eyes can see the beauty round and round sterile. Tied to the seat for my own safety, now. Unfree. Our destiny is in the captain's hands. Who's he? Take me to the end of this flight, land with me on sunny fields, take me over the wide blue sea, so deep. You don't know me. No one else either, now. I.D. Let my eyes see trees that are all so high, skies clear. My destiny is in your caring hands. Always been Take me to the end of this flight, land with me on sunny fields, take me over the wide blue sea, so deep. Let my feet walk on the true ground, let my wings spread and cruise the wind, let me dive down to the sea and breathe deep. Losing height. Useless fight. Endless night. Empty. Now I thank thee even for this cage of pride. Unreal. Take me to the end of this flight, land with me on sunny fields, take me over the wide blue sea, so deep. Take the burden off my back, pull the black hole out of my heart, lift the stone tied to my throat. Fill me. Take me to the end of this life, take from me all that is not me, land with me where I'll not be. Take me.
