"Phantomrider" as written by Patrick Benzner, Dave Roth, Tom Kaulitz, Bill Kaulitz and David Jost....
Gas and blood
Is all I've got
In you I trust
The final exit's
Passing by
The wheels run free
Under me
It's you I feel
A million sparks are falling down
I turn the wheel around

Kiss me goodbye
Into the light
Like a phantom rider
I'm dying tonight
So dark and cold
I drive alone
Like a phantom rider
Can't make it all on my own

Promises
I scratched so deep
In your empty seat
The sky is turning upside down
I turn the wheel around
I don't know your name
But still believe
Now it's the time
For you and me
Time for you and me

Now I'm here
No more fears
Angel, don't you cry
I'll meet you on the other side

Goodbye
Into the light
Like a phantom rider
I'm dying tonight
So dark and cold
I drive alone
Like a phantom rider
Can't make it all on my own
Hey!
I'm here with you
I am here, here
Leave me alone
Phantom rider
Always die on their own

    This entire first verse is missing, by the way. Hopefully someone fixes it soon.

    Anyway, according to Tokio Hotel's Bill Kaulitz, "It's about being close to someone you never really met before. You want to escape from something and you want this ghost-like soulmate to come away with you because it's the only thing you have faith in. The track carries hope."

    This song could be taken in so many different ways and even Bill's explanation leaves so much open to personal interpretation and expansion. This is probably the most beautiful song on the album to me.

    Another little tidbit. The lines:

    "Now I'm here
    No more fears
    Angel don't you cry
    I'll meet you
    on the other side"

    These lines are sung by a girl in the German version. His phantom companion.
