"When The Smoke Is Going Down" as written by Klaus Meine and Rudolf Schenker....
Just when you make your way back home
I find some time to be alone
I go to see the place once more
Just like a thousand nights before
I climb the stage again this night
'Cause the place seems still alive
When the smoke is going down

This is the place where I belong
I really love to turn you on
I've got your sound still in my ear
While your traces disappear
I climb the stage again this night
'Cause the place seems still alive
When the smoke is going down

I climb the stage again this night
'Cause the place seems still alive
When the smoke is going down
When the smoke is going down
When the smoke is going down

    Song MeaningDefinitely about the feeling after a show or tour. He can still hear/feel the crowd. I get the feeling it's bittersweet trying to hold on to that high of performing, but knowing the moment's over. One of my favorite Scorpion tunes.

    General CommentI did theater on high school, and after our last performance when I was senior I did just like the song "I climb the stage again this night and the place seems still alive.." and it is a really deep and strange feeling, instead I remembered this song so that is why I think that is about.
