Into Something Else

I’ve changed my mind a thousand times
I will change it again if I see the signs
All done in our name, it’s a shame
But the more things change they remain the same
And I wonder why we still believe the lies
Why it was so easy to enslave the tribe
Don’t blow out the candle, don’t blow out the candle
There must be some light at the end of the tunnel!

We must transform ourselves into something else
Turn ourselves into something else

Everything is a mystery
This is how it is meant to be
It’s always the winners who write our history
We won’t break free until victory
And I look into your eyes, am I in for a surprise?
The best things in life come in the worst disguise
Lies are complicated – truth is simple
Remember the two pillars of the burning temple

We must transform...

Please, please make it alright Please, please make it ok...

We must transform...

Break The Spell

Give us freedom, we’re sick of boredom
Are we the true heirs to your kingdom?
It’s going faster, getting vaster
One day slaves will defeat their master
You wisdom-keeper, digging deeper
The time has come to wake up the sleeper
The perfect season for committing treason
Without rhyme and without reason

We’re full of doubt with no way out
And still so much to worry about
But we’re ready to fight, to escape the plight
And we’ll find it hard to put things right
The fuse is burning, the wheels are turning
We don’t know why we’re still yearning
Words of wonder, striking thunder
What can break the curse we’re under?

Now I tell you what I need to tell
Heaven’s not so far away from hell
Unlock your prison cell
Get off your knees and break the spell!

We’re gonna make it, we won’t fake it
We won’t allow someone else to take it
Can’t you see that, you won’t believe it
If you don’t have a heart to feel it

Who’s gonna know where the wind will blow
On the volcano with vertigo?
Who’s gonna go where the rivers flow
Into the abyss down below?

Now we tell you what we need to tell...

Minds are put in uniforms and sent to war by minds in dark suits
The weapons they use, the bullets they choose are made by minds in white coats
And the money they use is printed and produced by the masterminds behind those
Who dictate the news to the big media whores
Who then tell the world how the game goes
This is how the game goes, how the game goes
How the bloody game goes!

Now we tell you what we need to tell...

Windows Of My Soul

See the sun like crystal on the water
From the cliffs high above the bay
Now they’re setting sail down at the harbour
And soon they’ll be miles away
Very soon they’ll be gone away
Somewhere far away...

I wanna fly so high into the sky
Like a seagull in the wind
So I can watch the whole world down below
From the pillow of my wings
I was born today  and I die tonight
Beyond time completely out of control
From the bottom of my heart
Through the windows of my soul

The shadows fade away while the new day is breaking
Nothing will ever remain
The journey goes on, the seasons are changing
And I will never be the same again
No-one will ever be the same again
Never be the same again...

 I wanna fly so high...

I’m not meant to feel guilty forever
This is not what I am here for
Now they’re selling fear on every corner
But it can’t touch me anymore
They don’t touch me anymore
They  won’t touch me anymore...
 
I wanna fly so high...

 

It Can´t Go On Like This Forever

Time is like a maze
From which we can hardly escape
Sometimes we reach out through the haze
For one precious moment we can touch your shape
Oh yes!

This is our chance to take
Our move to make
Where there is so much at stake
No, we won’t fall asleep, we are wide awake
It’s ok.!

It can’t go on like this forever
We cannot save the world tonight
It can’t go on like this forever
We cannot save the world tonight
It can’t go on like, it can’t go on like
It can’t go on like this - forever!

There’s still a missing link in the chain
We search for something we’ll never explain
The same old questions, they remain
We’re just riders on a one way train
That travels right through a desert of pain
All this time we prayed to the Gods in vain
But where there are clouds there must be rain
Got to get this nightmare out of my brain
We’re insane!

It can’t go on like...

You can call me a new age preacher
But I am not the only one
You might call me a hippie Messiah But I am not the only one
 You may call me a naive day dreamer
But I am not the only one
Just call me a doomsday survivor
And I won’t be the only one!

It won’t go on like...

Ceremony

I promise that one day there will be one of us
One of us will be the one
I bet you one day the day will come
The day will come ’cos it must be done
I stare across the sea into the setting sun
The ceremony it has just begun
I light up the candles in our sanctuary
One for you and one for me...

High above it all we’re climbing up the hill
They can neither stop us nor break our will
The curtain falls and now all the masks come off
We’ve definitely had more than enough
The battle is over before it has begun
Someone has lost what someone else has won
On and on the river flows
One passion comes, one passion goes...

It’s alright
Oh please take me home tonight
Don’t you sigh, don’t you cry
Darling, can’t you see the light...?

And I would die for you, my friend
Stand by your side until the end

The more you ignore and try looking away
The more it will stay and won’t go away
The more you explain, the less you’ll know what it means
The more familiar it is, the stranger it seems

The higher you reach out, the deeper you might fall
’till you realize you can’t have it all
 Come on, come on and let me go
Let me go now, now...

And I would die for you, my friend
Stand by your side until the end
 Every day and every night
It’s you I will defend

Until the end

2012

Hey this is 2012, you gotta save yourself, baby
We’re all fed up with losing, gal
Anything can happen any moment from now
Something must be done but we don’t know how

While dumb gets dumber – clever more clever
Rich becomes richer – poor gets poorer
Slow gets slower – fast gets faster
Low gets lower and high gets higher!

Wake up buddy, here we are again
It’s time to wake up honey - time to win!
You better wake up buddy, here we are again
It’s time to wake up – time to win!

There’s so much more to see before we die
So much more we want to try
All the time, we’re hiding from the watching eye
Some of us know and some don’t know why

Strange gets stranger – brave gets braver
Mad gets madder – weird gets weirder
 Dark gets darker – bright gets brighter
 Loud gets louder and wild gets wilder!
 
Wake up buddy here we are again
It’s time to wake up honey - time to win!
You better wake up buddy, here we are again
We better wake up honey
And at world’s end
Here we are again and at world’s end
Here we are again...

Yes 2012, gotta save myself baby
What are we supposed to do here gal?
We have already turned blind and deaf
With all the countless things we cannot have

While close gets closer - deep gets deeper
Small gets smaller – big gets bigger
Cold gets colder and hot gets hotter
Wet gets wetter – dry gets drier!

Wake  up...

Islands Of Devotion

Up and down across the ocean
Stranded on islands of devotion
With a buddle of rum in the blazing sun
This is the powder that loads our guns

Better times are yet to come
The worst times have almost gone
Better times are yet to come
The worst is past and gone

Our  way to live – our way to die
From cradle to grave - you and I
Get what we you can get today
Before the wind blows it all away

On and on across the water
We are the chaos in a world of order
Without any doubt we are the worst pirates
You’ve ever heard of but you’ve heard of us

Better times...

Our  way to live – our way to die
From cradle to grave - you and I
Get what you can get today
Before the sea washes it all away
Before the sun burns it all away
Before time takes it all away

Seven Seas

She’s down and out
She had it coming
But without a shadow of a doubt
She’ll be escaping
From the streets to the trees
Onto the waves of the seven seas
She’s burning dreams
’cos  nothing’s the way it seems

He’s far too late 
He was still sleeping
But now he tries to think straight
And then he’s leaping
From the streets to the trees
Onto the waves of the seven seas
He’s sowing seeds
’cos he believes...

Something must happen!
Something has to come!
Waiting for something to happen
Screaming out for something to come...

We wonder why
Wonder why we’re still dreaming
But today we turn away
We will be leaving
Leave this jail, onto the trail
We’re setting sail and we won’t fail
And we feel like breaking steel
With the impossible becoming real

 Something must happen...

Out

Listen to the silence
And the silence will listen to you
The source of our existennce
This is where we go to

If there is no tomorrow
What will you do today?
If there is no way to follow
Which way will you take?

Maybe there is some sense in all this
Which doesn’t make any sense to us
Some kind of cosmic justice
Just the way it really is

What can we believe in?
There’s so little we know
In this world we live in
Is there a place where we can go?

Out of space – out of time
Out of reason – out of mind
Out of everything today
Got to get away, get away!

There is something inside the jungle
At a site with no name
There is a predator animal
Which we’re not able to tame

There is a thunderstorm coming
It’s blowing through my ears
Now you guys better start running
And get the hell out of here!

Out of space – out of time
Out of reason – out of mind
Out of everything tonight
Got to get away, get away!

Highways Of Dust

We found ourselves barely alive
Was it the great flood we’d just survived?
There is stillness after the storm
We seem to be, to be reborn
Nobody left here to blame
Just our vanity gone insane
Every morning when the day was dawning
We went outside to burn our sacrifice
There’s a thousand things we can see tonight
If we’d just open our eyes
We can’t go back, we’ve gone too far
We can only follow our guiding star
And it can’t be changed, it’s fixed inside
Deep inside, inside your heart
That’s the way it is, the way things are
The way I am and the way you are!

Being judgemental all the time
But who am I, who are you to judge?
Right from wrong – wrong from right
Weak from strong – darkness from light
And if we wait, wait too long
It’ll all be over, over and gone
We’re so wired, so inspired
We never seem to get tired
Thethunders rumble, buildings tumble
On highways of dust, in dust we stumble
We can’t go back, we’ve gone too far
  We can only trust our guiding star
And it can’t be changed, it’s fixed inside
Deep inside, inside your heart
That’s the way it is, the way things are
The way I am and the way we are!

Rise Like Lions

You gotta hit the spider right where she is
She is in the centre of the spiderweb...
Send the demons back to hell where they belong...

Rise like lions after slumber

We arise in countless number
Shake our shackles to earth like dew
We are many – they are few!

You gotta hit the spider right where she is...
She is in the centre of the spiderweb...
Burn down the empire of the vampire...

Rise like lions...

No, we can’t let the bastards get away with it
We won’t let the bastards get away with it...

Rise like lions...

The Shining

Welcome tonight all you boys and girls
We must become the change we wanna see in the world
We gotta take the power back to the people
While we’re still countin’ on a miracle

Shine on, shine on my dear
Shine until you disappear
Shine on, shine on my dear
Shine until we make it out of here
Shine on until we disappear...

God save us from possessions
Save us from these bizarre obsessions
God save us from religion
And from scientific superstition

Shine on...

So what on earth will it take to make it?
Somebody’s gotta pay the bill
For God’s sake why don’t we get it?
Sometimes I wonder if we ever will...

  Shine on...

Wide Awake Before Dawn

Lost so many years
On the island of my fears
The mirage disappears
Wipe away your crocodile tears

Ch: Wide awake – wide awake
Waiting for the day to break
Until the end of night
Into the morning light
Oh, hold me tight
I’m wide awake before dawn

Spin around fortune wheel!
One day the wounds will heal
For the first time I can feel
This skin is beginning to peel

Ch: Wide awake....

Chaos Kings

We can travel back and forward in time
We’re involved in the most wicked crime
And anyway, we’re even allowed to lie
We decide who’s gonna live and who’s gonna die

Away from the towers of crimson rust
And onwards to the palaces of golden dust
We won’t stop selling until we are told
Everything in this world has been sold

Ch: We control the puppets, we pull the strings
We are the ones, we are the chaos kings!
We control the puppets, we pull the strings
We’re playing God, we are the chaos kings!

We’re the nice guys, we’re running the show
And we only tell you what we want you to know
Staring into the abyss right in front of us
This hybris – it’s just ridiculous!

Ch: We control....

We’re going deeper into the fire....

Memorial Day

We’re like slaves, we live in caves
We’re digging out our shallow graves
The colours fade in the growing shade
With everything we’ve ever made

We don’t know where to go
With a knowledge no-one needs to know
Beyond the hall, across the wall
There’s nothing there at all

See the clown with the crown
Wandering through this haunted town
Spellbound – this scary sound
It’s scary all around

From face to face, from place to place
Enjoy the last few summer days
The sunrise in your eyes
It’s almost paradise

Ch: Today is the day you will always remember
Today is the day, there’s no turning back
Today is the day you will forever/remember/forever
Today is the day, there’s no turning back

So what? Sir Lancelot!
The downfall of Camelot
The citadell it burns so well
No time more for fare-thee-well

With the heirs of Cain in the pouring rain
One by one all gone insane
We know your aims and play your games
’till it all goes up in flames

Ch: Today is the day....

Did you get what I said
You’re the best one I ever had
Rising high into the sky
Rising like a butterfly

Hold you tight you sweet delight
Melting in the moonlit night
Don’t be shy, don’t ask why
Oh, listen to my lullaby

Come on let’s have fun
Before we’re all dead and gone
Take a ride deep inside
Please let me be your guide

Did you get what I said
You’re the best one I ever had
The sunrise in your eyes
It’s almost paradise

Ch: Today is the day....

New Age Anarchist

The awakening of the sleeper
We have all slept far too long
There’s always been something deeper
Pretty hard to say what went wrong

Gallopping through the roaring thunder
Into the light of the dawning day
We’re staring here full of wonder
Into the rising sun across the bay

Ch: No more limits, no more boundaries
We break free from everything
We won’t sacrifice our liberties
We break free from everything
’cos we are the new age anarchists
Yes we are the new age anarchists

“Take away the power from the people
And put it in the hands of a few“
We don’t trust your face of evil
You look at us, we look at you

Ch: No more....

We’ve been waiting here for so long
And still don’t know what’s really going on?
Will we ever know what’s really going on?

Jehanne

Jeanne d’Arc was sent into this world
Jeanne d’Arc - was her mission fulfilled?
Jeanne d’Arc, she was just seventeen
Jeanne d’Arc saw something no-one had seen

Jeanne d’Arc, she passed the crown to the king
Jeanne d’Arc came and changed everything
Jeanne d’Arc - twist of history
Jeanne d’Arc remains a mystery

Ch: Johanna, we can’t hear the voices
Joan, there are a thousand noises
Johanna, there’s a lack of wisdom
Johanna, this is our kingdom

Jeanne d’Arc, she made it really happen
Jeanne d’Arc, she had allies from heaven
Jeanne d’Arc in the name of liberty
Jeanne d’Arc for eternity....

Ch: Johanna we can’t hear....

They’ve burnt your body on the pyre
But they will never burn the truth with fire
Your light still shines from beyond
Forever and ever on....

Ch: Johanna we can’t hear....

A Small Step Away

We can't control the course of the fortune wheel
The weirdest science fiction is becoming real
Stand up, claim your rights for a decent future
Don't ever give them any chance to fool you
We're just pawns in someone else's game
The rules made for us have always been the same
While all of this is done forever in our name....

I don't give a damn about the things I do
No more justifications for my point of view
No particular direction I'm heading to
Try to figure it out but I haven't got a clue
It's pretty hard to say which way the wind will blow
Unpredictable - we'll probably never know
There's only one way here left for us to go....

Ch: This is New Year's Day, we've nearly gone astray
While the big change is just a small step away

Play to me the Blues of New Orleans
One more downfall live on the TV screens
Can't get away from those cruel scenes
Trying to survive by all possible means
There's no more moon over Bourbon Street
Where the authorities lost their authority
And everyone's responsible to some degree....

Ch: This is New Year's Day, we've nearly....

Ballad Of The Petrified Tears

We were coming down, we walked the line,
we passed so many tracks
We were almost gone and half dead with ropes around our necks
It's pretty hard remembering what happened on that day
But something there from outer space was crossing our way

We've seen so much – still not enough
till the last desire is satisfied
The victory is ours - tonight

Kingdoms rise and kingdoms fall for some reasons great or small
Wiped out - all our history as if it hadn't been there at all
The journey ends where it has begun, in the wilderness of our soul
Our petrified tears in the mirror of fear with the chaos we can't control

The battle of some haunted ones still fighting the same old enemies
in the same old stories with the same old worries
we're not able to ease....

Ch: The pretty lies, which covered so nice - we can't let them go
A fanatical belief won't give us relief- we can't let it go
This restless greed that no-one can feed - we can't let it go
This burn-out disease that will not cease - we can't let it go
This total despair – a living nightmare - we can't let it go....
No, no....
Oh please just let it go....

And then we woke up here in this different sphere, in this dreamlike landscape
With curious eyes, full of surprise – reborn in a brand new shape
And there we walked along this fairy path, we were walking up to its end
Enchanted we were and never looked back 'til we vanished around the bend

The deliverance from suffering – there has to be a remedy
It's not over yet.....until we see....

Ch: The pretty lies, which covered so nice....

Campfire Redemption Song

It's hard to find the appropriate words after all these years
The time has come to wash the stains and to shake off all my fears
My doubts, my rage, my sins, my scars, my despair everyday
All the sweet moments gone forever and nothing can bring them back again
And in the end all the worrying about it, it wasn't worth it that much anyway
No it ain't worth it that much anyway....

The day will come when all of us will have our debts to pay
In order to change the course of our lives and get rid of this terrible fake
Our chains, our hate, our lies, our sighs just blow them all awa
y Nothing lasts forever – it's just a matter of time
And in the end all the worrying about it, it wasn't worth it that much anyway
No it ain't worth it that much anyway....

It's hard to find the appropriate girl after all these girls
The time has come to wash the stains and to shake off all my tears
My doubts, my rage, my sins, my scars, my despair everyday
All the sweet moments gone forever and nothing can make you alive again
And in the end all the worrying about it, it wasn't worth it that much anyway
No it ain't worth it that much anyway....

Heavenly Creatures

Wild cat – I'm ready to break through,
Today all the marvels will come true,
All I wish, yeah I wish to do
Is to go wherever you go to.
Wild cat - you unknown beauty,
This beauty's my remedy,
You're the start and the end of the story,
My defeat and my victory.

Ch: Stand up you children of nature
On the verge of your total erasure,
Watch out, you heavenly creatures
Beware of your infernal features!
Come on my sweet little lady,
Let the sun shine, it's far too shady,
I'm a hopeless, restless believer
And my soul full of hunger and fever....

Wild cat - you savage temptation,
The source of my inspiration,
The love of our holy creation,
In God's own revelation.

Wild cat – unfulfilled desire,
Take my hand, come on take me higher,
Like a flame in a burning fire,
Don't wanna waste and die in the mire.

Ch: Stand up....

Last Man On Earth

The supernatural's never been as close
Not more than a touch away
The evidence is right here in front of you
A miracle everyday....

Once upon a time you lost yourself
Now you need to find yourself again
Dream on all the dreamings you ever had
A dream can change everything....

Ch: You're somewhere, not anywhere in the middle of nowhere
like the last man on earth
You're lost there, out there in the middle of nowhere
As if you're the last man on earth....

The supernatural's never been as close,
As close as it is today
The battlefield is right here in front of you
Not an enemy far away....

Ch: You're somewhere, not anywhere....



Light

Across the stormy river, through the blowing dust,
The bridges we cross all turn to rust,
It's the courtyard of hell, not anywhere else,
This world we have built ourselves.

Bring us wisdom, send us all your power,
The outcome is in the hands of fate,
Give us freedom in the judgement hour
It's five to twelve, it almost seems too late.
Ch: Light....

We undertake our infernal ride
To the glowing lights on the other side,
We reach out but we can not touch the stars,
The gods are so angry about us.

Bring us wisdom....

Ch: Light...

You know the things that were
And you know the things that are
And also about the things that have not yet come to pass..

Ch: Light....

Memories Of Thule

O Mem'ry! What a vast array
Of incidents from day to day....

O Thule! Thou dear native land of my fathers!
Romantic and grand! The loved home of my birth;
Each long - ago scene round my mem'ry still gathers;
To me, aye, the sweetest, the fairest on earth.

Thy bold rugged headlands with sentinel gesture
Look out far away o'er the billow - tossed foam!
(Defending the Inlands)....Thy mist – mantled vesture
Provides for the sea bird a wild, stormy home!

I stand by the sea – coast and watch the vast ocean
With restless persistency break on the shore;
Wave following wave.... while with breathless emotion
I gaze spellbound, list'ning to its thund'rous roar.

I climb up the hills; They are treeless all over,
But heather a carpet spreads under my feet;
Hear the call of the Lapwing, the rush of the Plover,
The song of the skylark, so buoyant and sweet.

The Leetla's strange quiver! I watch as it dances
Around the horizon 'twixt hilltop and sky.
Rare picture to mem'ry! O how it enhancess
The youthful delight of those days long gone by.

I sit by the brooklet and watch its flow, onward,
Till losing itself in the great mighty deep;
I breathe the cool breezes, am loath to go homeward
Those fairy surroundings fast lull me to sleep....

The sweet summer dim folds ist mantle around me,
I dream of the past, when a child I would roam;
But O, the delight!....My dear Mother hath found me,
And leads me back with her,'way to the old home....

The lengthened out twilight is spent in enjoyment,
While laughter and song doth re – echo around,
None seek to retire from their cheerful enjoyment,
As hillside and valley give back every sound.

Those mem'ries, still sweet, as life's shadows do lengthen,
They linger around as if loath to depart,
They soothe and inspire, they bring comfort and strengthen
The longing desires of my old weary heart.

And just as the twilight gives place to the morning,
So all of Life's shadows shall soon pass away
When saints will arise in immortal adorning,
To dwell 'mid the sunshine of unending day...

Mystery Trip

Did you ever feel the pain I felt today?
Did you ever weep the tears I wept today?
Did you ever fear the fears I feared today...?

Did you ever touch the glory I touched today?
Did you ever breathe the air I breathed today?
Did you ever die the death I died today...?

Ch: Go where no-one goes to know what no-one knows,
See what no-one sees to feel what no-one feels

It's us in every evil thought we create,
It's us in every judgement we make,
It's us in every promise we break,
We fake, we take, we shake - we awake....
Ch: Go where no-one goes...

Do you mind if I stay tonight?
Do you mind if I step inside?
May all the quarrels be reconciled
And it's alright and alright and....

Neverland

Peter Pan takes Wendy, takes her by her hand
And Alice, Alice she goes to Wonderland
Frankenstein wakes up to greet all of us
Gulliver travels around the world by bus
Dr. Jekyll turns into Mr. Hyde
Count Dracula will be back tonight
Try to paint the picture of Dorian Gray
Can't make the wrinkles go away

Ch: Set me free, just take my hand
Oh carry my heart to Neverland
I want you so, I told you so, I want you so....
to Neverland, to Neverland....

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson - all gone insane
In a world full of things which they can't explain
Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham
The same old fight over and over again
King Arthur can't get the sword out of the stone
And Robinson's island's got telephone
Bunbury's here but there's no-one around
Only Jack the Ripper can't be found

Ch: Set me free....

Nothing Is Forgotten

Now you can hear their calls out from far away
All the souls that will arise on judgement day
The demons are released and there's no shelter to find
with the all consuming fire so close behind
The flames they're reaching higher and any moment from now
The empire will strike back somehow....

Ch: Nothing....no - nothing is forgotten
Nothing is ever forgotten!

There's no escaping from the rising tide
The incoming waves they leave no place to hide
Stare across the ocean hypnotized
Holding a vision to be realized
Standing on the cliffs of Eshaness
With the powers of light and darkness....

Ch: Nothing....no....

There's always gonna be someone being accused
There's always gonna be someone being refused
There's always gonna be someone being amused
There's always gonna be someone being used
Who's going to manipulate the daily news?
Who's going to extinguish the burning fuse?
Fight the tyranny before the beast breaks loose...!

Ch: Nothing....no....

Odyssey

Driving down the road, just found this crooked lane,
I'm driving around at random but I cannot ease my pain,

Riding on a ghost-train through valleys up and down,
Searching for a treasure, searching for a crown,

Oh, take me on a journey just take me anywhere,
I'm travelling on my own, travelling to nowhere,

All the birds are singing, it's a lovely summer day,
I wish you would come back to kiss my misery away.

Ch: It's going to be alright I can feel this anyhow,
My heart beats in my body and this body is my house.

Set my heart on fire, a fire from inside,
In moments of despair and in moments of delight,

You need to help me out of here very very soon
Don't ever waste away on a Sunday afternoon,

I know the price of wisdom and I know the price of art,/p>

Stranded victims in the Odyssey of life,
Gotta keep my faith and my courage to survive.

Ch: It's going to be alright...

Out In The Blue

Somewhere out there in the blue
This is where the trip goes to
One by one passing through
Reaching out for something new
Some dawning age coming true
Like drops of fallen dew
With the truth that one once knew
This tune goes out to you
To all of you
Somewhere out there in the blue....

Ch: To all the romantics, to all the believers and all the dreamers out there
To all the truth seekers and to all the pilgrims
Yes I know that you are there
To all the angels, to all the kachinas, to all the good spirits out there
To all the fairies and all the sirens
Yes I know that you're there....

Somewhere out there in the blue
This is where the ship turns to
The unknown waters in view
Welcome to the paradise crew
Joining the chosen few
This tune goes out to all of you....

Ch: To all the romantics, to all the believers and all the dreamers out there
To all the truth seekers and to all the pilgrims
Yes I know that you are there
To all the angels, to all the kachinas, to all the good spirits out there
To all the goblins and all the aliens
Yes I know that you're there....
You can count on me there....
Somewhere out there in the blue....

Planet On Fire

Your heart is strong, it can't be wrong
But you don't remember your own mother tongue
The empires burn, the souls still yearn
for some distant past which will never return

Maybe they abuse you
Maybe they confuse you
Maybe they seduce you
But they don't have to win

Maybe they just fool you
Or try to control you
Or just ridicule you
But they don't have to win

Ch: The planet is on fire and we wait for better days
The planet on fire – an emergency case
The planet is on fire on the eve of better days....

We are here with our fear
Naked and bare and lost my dear
Like little boys with deadly toys
Making an unbearable shattering noise

Maybe they abuse us
Maybe they confuse us
Maybe they seduce us
But they don't have to win

Maybe they just fool us
Or try to control us
Or just ridicule us
But they don't have to win

Ch: The planet is on fire....

Point Of No Return

Behind a world-wide web of cover-ups and a wall of phony lies
Out of a pile of ashes another phoenix starts to rise
The propaganda-mantras go on and on
One star is dying and a new one will be born

A thousand steps in a thousand lives and a thousand desperate calls
A thousand tears and a thousand fears through a thousand guarded walls
A thousand thoughts and a thousand words of a thousand times before
A thousand miles, a thousand doors and at least a thousand more...!

Ch: This is the point of no return
But we never ever cared, never cared to learn
Standing at the point of no return
And nobody ever, ever dared to learn

From newspeak to doublethink, deception rules it all
If they're gonna come to get you there might be no-one left to call
Don't sacrifice your liberties for your own securitry
In the end both of them will be gone and the horror reality

A million claims, a million names and a million games to play
A million fights and a million lies and a million things to say
A billion dreams, a billion ways and a billion gone astray
A billion traps and a billion wounds – a bloody price to pay

Ch: This is the point of no return...

Stop fighting all you angry ones
Lay down your weapons, lay down your guns!

Ride The Tide

Too late to recognize
that you might have gone too far
And maybe realize
that you're not the one you think you are

One day you'll be the one
you always wanted to be
The things that you have done
could change the course of history

Walk on, see the sign
Don't turn around until you crossed the borderline
Come on, change your mind,
no more time to waste 'cos you shouldn't go blind
Let's go, it's alright
it kind of blows it up like dynamite
Move on, take a ride,
take it all the way – you got to ride the tide....

Ch: All I want to say, it's gonna be o.k.
We're making our way in the world we live today

No pearls were ever found
neither jewels nor a crown
Take a look around
There's no-one left in this dead end town

The gold rush long has gone
There're no more nuggets here
Don't you dare to mourn
Cannot afford another tear

Walk on, see the sign....

Ch: All I want to say....
Crusaders with their bibles, arms and crosses
Power and a hundred thousand causes
The end is met with all the many losses
Through rolling tanks and military forces
They say they're here to protect us and even go as far as to defend us
Do you really think they're ever gonna tell us
The truth that's laid deep within us....

Ch: All I want to say....

The Maze

Lost in a maze of lies and fake
Sometimes we don't know which path to take
When the sun goes down we'll meet out by the lake
And meet on the banks for good old time's sake
No more need to hesitate
The hour has come to celebrate
You old companion, you loyal mate
Let's bury the hatchet, it's not too late

We're sowing envy and we harvest violence
We're the clowns of our innocence
And one of us must break the silence
The dullness of indifference
Where's the God that we believe in?
And where are the keys to the Garden of Eden?
We're not able to find the reason
For Jesus's love for Judas's treason

Ch: Oh show us all the way back home
On to the waves of splashing foam
Don't know if we are right or wrong
We've been waiting for so long
Out here all alone

Questions, rumours and speculation
Who is ruling this corrupted nation?
News with useless information
A lack of sense for investigation
Bloody lies – conspiracy
Rage against the machinery
Wicked schemes of secrecy
A world where no-one wants to be

Ch: Oh take us all the way...

Wherever The Wind Will Blow

You need to let it go,
You need to let it flow,
Things beyond your control,
Because you can't rule them all.

The thrills they come and go,
One by one – Eve's flowers grow,
Always a little death to die,
Can't stop this passing by.

You're a queen currently without a crown
And all of this is done just to hold you down
The same indulgence and sorrows every day,
Don't you realize the evil game they play?
They want you to give up and sacrifice your future,
They want you to become a natural born loser,
All those bastards, all those monsters,
Don't ever let them knock you out....

Ch: There must be some reason you came here for,
As the light falls through the wide open door
Oh God I swear you, there has to be some more,
Something you've never seen before,
From winter fears to summer glow,
Wherever the wind will blow...

You need to let it fall,
You need to let it roll,
Things beyond your control,
Because you can't have them all.

Sick and tired and a loneliness so painful,
Looking for something, just something graceful
Fed up with compensation and your boredom is aching
And all remaining power those distractions are taking,
There's no satisfaction in this web of confusion,
Jungle of temptations, commercial revolution,
It's all illusion, it's all pollution,
Don't ever let this drag you down....

Ch: There must be some reason....

The thrills they....

You're a king currently without a crown
And all of this is done just to hold you down
The hunt for information that you don't need,
Haunted by a hunger you can't feed,
Your destiny dispersed in countless directions,
In touch with a thousand superficial connections,
All the bleeding, all the suffering,
All the weeping, all the struggling
But your love's never gone away....

Ch: There must be some reason....
