Lyrics


A - F   |  G - R   |  S - Z



    A GROWN MAN   
  


The pilot was alive
After his plane went down
On that fateful Sunday morning
Near an upstate town

The pilot survived
When his plane crashed down
Onto a travelling circus
Wiping out the clowns

I know who I am
I am awake
I am aware

The fear of being caught
It's a paralyzing thought
But reproval from the Board
Makes you a grown man

With nerves of steel
It's treachery you feel
What they hide from you, you steal
You are a grown man

The fear of being caught
What a ridiculous thought
Disapproval from the Lord
You are a grown man

Chains of steel
Shortchanged you feel
What she holds back from you, you steal
You are a grown man

Are you awake?
Are you aware?
Do you notice?
Do you care?

The smell of bandages
Is confusing
Are you choosing life

Do you think twice?

Are you awake?
Are you aware?
Do you notice?
Do you care?

    THE ATTIC   
  


I'm on medication now
I am the only patient in this house

I'm back in the attic now
Scorched and drowned and all yours


top   next






       
         AVALOST   
  


Slow motion movement
Into the light
Steadfast I walk
Into the brightest sight
Fusion of day and night
The stars are frozen
Layers of ice

Ice moving, peaceful
Exalted but quiet
The chill and the sea
Hurl back memories
Moments of clarity
You are caressing me

I've been travelling all night
To reach the coast of New Found Land
To meet the girl from my dreams
But she's not there

I sit down by the sea
At the coast of New Found Land
And I dream, I dream
About leaving

I could smell you
Right through the walls
These were the days
Sedateness put in its place
With you I let go
Did you know?

I had a thousand lives
Now the count is down to one
Playing safe was fine
But I'll stake it all this time
As I wade in
The icebergs sing

I've been travelling all night
To reach the coast of New Found Land
To meet the love of my life
She's not there

I sit down by the sea
At the coast of New Found Land
And I smile
As I dream
About leaving

    BLACK FEATHERS   
  


Confide in me tonight
You don't have to hide
The marks
From far too many nightmares
That keep bleeding from your heart

Collide with me tonight
We will make it right
The stars
Will be witness to our ritual
The cleansing of a heart

The virtuous man dreams
What the wicked man does
They break all the rules
We admire them for that

We ceased to ask
The most important things
Conditioned into silence
We learned to shut our wings

Let go
The humble spiral
From tiny to immense
Let go
Black feathers
And not a single friend
Let go
There is so much beauty
There is so much pain
Let go
Sing to me of heroes
Sing to me of fate

This is as close as I can come to answers

For anyone who strays
From the straight and narrow path
This is from my heart
And far too many nightmares

Ride with me tonight
We will make it right
The stars
Will be witness to our ritual
The cleansing of a heart

    BREATHE   
  


Your tears tear wounds
And worlds apart
Sinking down in silence
Ivy climbs my heart
A pool of tears
And layers of pain
We call for comfort
And cry for rain

In hours like these
When black beats blue
I know nothing that I
Feel is true (but)
The demons will
Forsake the land
(And I'll)
Find a gentle woman
For a gentle man

Breathe
Taste my flesh and grief
Breathe
Crawl on your knees

My hunger is directed
Towards your twisting body
Shameless you demand
Punishment and men

My eyes are re-directed
From your twitching body
Towards the waiting crowd
Punishment's at hand

My anger is directed
Towards your shifting body
Breathless you demand
The use of force again

My thoughts are re-directed
From your bleeding body
Towards the folded shroud
We're closing in on the end

Hurt me
Scream what you feel
Hurt me
I need to know it's real

    CASTAWAY   
  


Pain unlike pleasure
Wears no mask
What about trust?
It's funny you should ask

A force inside me craved
To love you
But I prefered to close my eyes
And now you're gone
And I turn out to be the one
That can't go on

You just have to be mine
I love you
And I have proof
I drilled a hole
Into the body of this boat

Take this ray of light
Veil the moon and hold the tide
Calm the wind you might
Control the sea

If you save my life
We will rise
And shine so bright
That the stars will go blind
And leave
Leave the sky

You're the world I want to live in
Can I exist in you?
Oh, you want proof?
Another shipwreck to amuse you?

If we allow our souls to fly
We could meet in the sky
You go your way
I'll cross your line
From time to time

Are you the fire that burns me?
The ice that cracks beneath me?

I pretend to walk
I pretend to breathe
I know you understand
You always did

You prefer to talk
(And) I pretend to listen
Three and counting
I'm still waiting

I just want to fly
The morning sun is shattered
The smile is gone
Frozen liquid carving stone

It's time to close our eyes
As we pretend to care
I keep still
Accrete the silence you don't fill

I'm so glad that you can't read my mind
We spend a little time
Exchanging words and maybe
What you'd call emotion

But I'm so glad that you can't read my mind
I never meant to hurt
Still I'm spinning like a
Roundabout in motion
(Deceptive detachment ... from this world)

An echo from afar
The signal is too weak
I know you understand
You always did

You pretend to bide
So I pretend to smile
Three and counting
I'm still waiting

I just want to fly
The medium is shaking
Your voice is low
Melting shadows burning snow

It's time to close our eyes
Forget what we were told
I keep still
Embrace the silence you don't fill

I'm so glad that you can't read my mind
We spend a little time
Exchanging words and maybe
What you'd call emotion

But I'm so glad that you can't read my mind
I never meant to hurt
Still I'm spinning like a
Roundabout in motion
(Deceptive detachment ... from this world)

The more you want to feel free
The deeper your roots need to be

    CONTRABAND   
  


The cries of all the things
That are to die
Resonate
Inside my heart
Stabbing me in a blind fury
Like a child
Desperate and lost

The air I take in
With each breath
Is alien
It burns me from within
Reminding me that I cannot
Renounce the vow
The time is now

Of what are you innocent
You carried contraband
Into my mind as if
You couldn't kill me dead enough

Your waste is in my blood
It's never going to stop
I played along but now
I do no longer know just how

Of what are you innocent
You carried contraband
Into my heart as if
You couldn't kill me dead enough

Your waste is in my blood
It's never, never going to stop
I kept silent all my life
Prepare to make some sacrifice

The cries of all the things
That are to die
Interfuse
It's time for you to choose
I am no longer angry
I'm in good faith
We can finish this
With dignity and grace

    COWARD   
  


Turn around...
Don't be so stupid to believe
In what they say
Rest assured of that
They'll get you out of the way

Don't be so stupid to believe
In what you hear
Rest assured of that
They know no fear

How many sinners do you know like this?
Out of their minds

How many cowards do you know like this?
Out of their minds
No will to move

They'll get you
Out of the way

How many sinners do you know like this?

They'll get you
Out of the way
Rest assured of that
They'll get you out of the way

    DAY OF THE CENTURY   
  


You show up with yet
Another mask
Another story
Just to confuse me

Two for one
And me for you
That sticky swirl
Will sharpen the blue

A hasty smile
To hide a lie
One beat to fast
Metalish white

I have no fear
My course is clear
I filled her up
And I won't look back

I opened my eyes
Absorbed the light
I smelled the warmth
And I felt the sun

I embrace the horizon
And folded it back
To enlarge our view
And I x-ray you

Take - The security conveyed
By a familiar face
Unveil - The pleasure I see
Within your embrace

You'll see - A long desired space
A car to speed the pace
It's the day - It's the day of the century

You show up with yet
Another mask
Another story
Just to confuse me

Hardly one
But never two
The thoughts I have
Would not flatter you

The brand is wrong
The birthsign too
Still we die as one
I can see through

I have no fear
My course is clear
I filled her up
And I won't look back

The attitude you need
A reservoir of words
A goatee of milk
It's cheap
But it's quality, believe me

I kissed the horizon
And folded it back
To enlarge my view
And I x-ray you

Take - The security conveyed
By a familiar face
Unveil - The pleasure I see
Within your embrace

You'll see - A long desired space
A car to speed the pace
It's the day - It's the day of the century

    DIGITAL   
  


She was attracted to trouble
Angel at risk
I met her in the summer
She was cheerful
Outgoing, I guess
She was hurt when she was little
At heart she remained a child
She talked too loud in public
But she tasted like candy
Orange-cream candy

I took her to the forest
I tied her to a tree
I monitored the action
At night I kept her company
I took her to the forest
I tied her to a tree
I took all the photos
Digital treat
For people like me

I took her to the forest
I tied her to a tree
I monitored the action
It's astounding
How ruthless we can be
I took her to the forest
I tied her to a tree
I took all the photos
Digital candy
For people like you and me

I took all the photos
Digital treat
For people like me

Digital candy
For people like you and me

    DOMINATION   
  


You sit on a chair
Your eyes fix on her
And you're unaware
I'm right behind you

Your sight starts to blur
You want to taste her
But you're unaware
Nothing you see is for you

Your skin is on fire
Your mouth is on fire
Eyes on fire
Pay for desire

We like to meet liars
We love to treat saints
Carnal desire
You will reap pain

Come forward
Domination
We hunt in pairs
Come forward
Domination
We feed on despair
Your despair

You're strapped to the chair
Your eyes rest on her
And I just don't care
If you like what I'll do to you

Your sight starts to blur
You'll never have her
But now you're aware
Tonight we will have you

Your skin is on fire
Your mouth is on fire
Ice on fire
Pay for desire

We like to treat liars
We love to treat saints
Carnal desire
You will reap pain

    DOUBLEPLUSUNGOOD   
  


To this day
I do not understand who we were
Just what made our encounters so sincere
An isle in time
Our love a shelter

And to this day
Those tears I shed burn into my face
You turned around and walked without a trace
You cut the lifeline

You held me down
I'm tied up on your sheets
You turned to liquid
Read my needs

You shared my passion
Surrendered to the mob
Played the game
And fell apart again

I hold you down
You're tied up on the sheets
We turn to liquid
Pulse in heat

Share the passion at
The mercy of the mob
Play the game
Then fall apart just the same

There was so much I wanted you to know
Worlds I wanted you to see
Now there's only me
Only me

Bewildered
Motionless
Gagged and without hope
I just don't know how to cope
I just don't know how to cope

To this day
I do not understand who you were
Just what made our encounters so sincere
An isle in time
Your love a shelter

And to this day
Those tears I shed burn into on my face
You turned around and walked without a trace
You cut the lifeline

    DUNNOCKS   
  


Another boring day is close to the end
We share the last glass of wine
Much too tired to move, head on my hands
Avoid to look into your eyes

Let's watch a movie, watch a comedy
Watch pornography
Fast food for our minds
The rich man's far too fat
I don't like his grin
But all the women try to mate with him

If we really share a functional design
An adapted mind
This might prevent our lives from parasites
Still, it's a big waste of time

All the answers
To the questions
This protein structure asks
Play 'hard-to-get' and this is
Why we want them so badly
I'd like to regress
To an infant psyche
'Feed me, feed me, feed me'

If we really share a functional design
An adapted mind
This might prevent our lives from parasites
Still, it's a big waste of time

    THE ESCAPE   
  


Don't breathe a word of this now
Save it for another time
When it won't matter

Dark night and
Heavy rain
I am doing it again
Cut the fence
And take a boat
Good overlord

Searing pain
And despair
Frantic grasps
For air
I am thinking of you
Burning smoking holes
Into my solitude

Don't breathe a word of this now
Save it for another time
When it won't matter
Like years from now

You made a choice and a vow
Nothing ever will be found
And it won't matter
Some years from now

Describe yourself

Ecstatic
Orgiastic
Frenzied
Undisciplined

Instinctual
Irrational
Intuitive and
Wild

Like a child

    EVERY LAST GRAIN   
  


[ instrumental ]



top   next




  
    EVERYTHING   
  


One at a time
Is crossing the line
You are everything
You are everything

Give me a sign
If you wanna be mine
You are everything
You are everything

Forty-thousand years of rain
Can change things
Can change a world

Thirty-thousand days in pain
Are a lifetime

Caressed by tempest
You'd always be the first to distrust
Assign the blame

You have a headful of questions
But no-one gets to tell you what to do
Ever again

This is life as you script it
Governed and construed
In accordance with your laws

You're beyond explanations
So you watch the next companion
Being put to the sword

You're that person that you hated
When it all began

Innocence long faded
No-one gets to tell you what to do
Ever again


top   next






       
    EXORCIZE   
  


You eat the time
Spit out the seeds
You're planting life

You speak the words
Control the beat
You're an agent of change

Send out the light
Raging from the sky
Refine my vice

Absorb my fears
Brand me with your signs
We are partners in crime

Exorcize - No choice but to believe
I turn to you and close my eyes
Exorcize - I will not suffer

Exorcize - Raise your voice not to deceive
I turn to you and close my eyes
Exorcize - Rage will do no better

You dull my mind
You leave me blind
Define my course

You're breaking news
You are on the scene
Our schedule is yours

You worked your way
´Round the firewalls
Reverse the time

Absorb my fears
Brand me with your tears
We are partners in crime

Exorcize - No choice but to believe
I turn to you and close my eyes
Exorcize - I will not suffer

Exorcize - Raise your voice not to deceive
I turn to you and close my eyes
Exorcize - Rage will do no better

Without choice but to believe

    FLOATING   
  


Floating

Lost and found - unleashed
Guided by a ghost light
A vessel on the open sea

Lost and found - unleashed
A travel back in time
A pilgrim's quest for purity

And I am
Back where I began
A poet with a soul
A mind without control

And I am
Back where it began
A hungry ghost is what I am
No love, no fear
We are floating here

Lost and found - unleashed
Following the path
To the place where you once welcomed me

Lost and found - unleashed
A travel back in time
A futile quest for memories

And I am
Back where I began
A poet with a soul
A mind without control

And I am
Back where it began
Rerun the tape for me, my friend
No love, no fear
We are floating here

    FOR ANOTHER DAY   
  


I, revenant, I am
Observant, I am
With a friend

We are hunters
We are prey
We are hungry
Night and day

Close your eyes
If you fall for it
And I'll hold up the charade
That will keep us alive
For another day

Blink twice
To call for it
And I'll keep up the pretense
That will keep you alive
For another day

I'm a lucky man
I'm a sad man
I do what I can

I'm a happy man
I'm a dead man
I am what I am

I, revenant, I am
Dependent, I am
Not your friend

We are punters
We hold sway
We are hungry
Night and day

Hey, move over
Turn over
Hey, move over
Game over


top   next






       
    FOR LIFE   
  


Look at the sky
Take one last look at the sky

Trace of resentment
Out of the blue
Uncatchable
Unstoppable

And then...

A mood forecast
Desperate but true
And vain
You're on your knees again

Take a look at the sky
In time
One last look at the sky
It used to be you and I

Take a look at the sky
In time
One last look at the sky
You and I, bound for life

Bound for life

Outnumbered
Outgunned
Take position
Have fun

Outnumbered
Outgunned
Take position
It's going to be fun
